Forum rules and no-advertising policy

As a participant on this forum, it is your responsibility to know and follow our rules. Please read this message in its entirety.

Board Rules

1. You're responsible for what you say.
As outlined in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, The Chronicle of the Horse and its affiliates, as well Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd., the developers of vBulletin, are not legally responsible for statements made in the Forums.

This is a public forum viewed by a wide spectrum of people, so please be mindful of what you say and who might be reading it--details of personal disputes may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums' policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.
The forums are a wonderful source of information and support for members of the horse community. While it's understandably tempting to share information or search for input on other topics upon which members might have a similar level of knowledge, members must maintain the focus on horses.

3. Keep conversations productive, on topic and civil.
Discussion and disagreement are inevitable and encouraged; personal insults, diatribes and sniping comments are unproductive and unacceptable. Whether a subject is light-hearted or serious, keep posts focused on the current topic and of general interest to other participants of that thread. Utilize the private message feature or personal email where appropriate to address side topics or personal issues not related to the topic at large.

4. No advertising in the discussion forums.
Posts in the discussion forums directly or indirectly advertising horses, jobs, items or services for sale or wanted will be removed at the discretion of the moderators. Use of the private messaging feature or email addresses obtained through users' profiles for unsolicited advertising is not permitted.

Company representatives may participate in discussions and answer questions about their products or services, or suggest their products on recent threads if they fulfill the criteria of a query. False "testimonials" provided by company affiliates posing as general consumers are not appropriate, and self-promotion of sales, ad campaigns, etc. through the discussion forums is not allowed.

Paid advertising is available on our classifieds site and through the purchase of banner ads. The tightly monitored Giveaways forum permits free listings of genuinely free horses and items available or wanted (on a limited basis). Items offered for trade are not allowed.

Advertising Policy Specifics
When in doubt of whether something you want to post constitutes advertising, please contact a moderator privately in advance for further clarification. Refer to the following points for general guidelines:

Horses -- Only general discussion about the buying, leasing, selling and pricing of horses is permitted. If the post contains, or links to, the type of specific information typically found in a sales or wanted ad, and it's related to a horse for sale, regardless of who's selling it, it doesn't belong in the discussion forums.

Stallions -- Board members may ask for suggestions on breeding stallion recommendations. Stallion owners may reply to such queries by suggesting their own stallions, only if their horse fits the specific criteria of the original poster. Excessive promotion of a stallion by its owner or related parties is not permitted and will be addressed at the discretion of the moderators.

Services -- Members may use the forums to ask for general recommendations of trainers, barns, shippers, farriers, etc., and other members may answer those requests by suggesting themselves or their company, if their services fulfill the specific criteria of the original post. Members may not solicit other members for business if it is not in response to a direct, genuine query.

Products -- While members may ask for general opinions and suggestions on equipment, trailers, trucks, etc., they may not list the specific attributes for which they are in the market, as such posts serve as wanted ads.

Event Announcements -- Members may post one notification of an upcoming event that may be of interest to fellow members, if the original poster does not benefit financially from the event. Such threads may not be "bumped" excessively. Premium members may post their own notices in the Event Announcements forum.

Charities/Rescues -- Announcements for charitable or fundraising events can only be made for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. Special exceptions may be made, at the moderators' discretion and direction, for board-related events or fundraising activities in extraordinary circumstances.

Occasional posts regarding horses available for adoption through IRS-registered horse rescue or placement programs are permitted in the appropriate forums, but these threads may be limited at the discretion of the moderators. Individuals may not advertise or make announcements for horses in need of rescue, placement or adoption unless the horse is available through a recognized rescue or placement agency or government-run entity or the thread fits the criteria for and is located in the Giveaways forum.

5. Do not post copyrighted photographs unless you have purchased that photo and have permission to do so.

6. Respect other members.
As members are often passionate about their beliefs and intentions can easily be misinterpreted in this type of environment, try to explore or resolve the inevitable disagreements that arise in the course of threads calmly and rationally.

If you see a post that you feel violates the rules of the board, please click the �alert� button (exclamation point inside of a triangle) in the bottom left corner of the post, which will alert ONLY the moderators to the post in question. They will then take whatever action, or no action, as deemed appropriate for the situation at their discretion. Do not air grievances regarding other posters or the moderators in the discussion forums.

Please be advised that adding another user to your �Ignore� list via your User Control Panel can be a useful tactic, which blocks posts and private messages by members whose commentary you'd rather avoid reading.

7. We have the right to reproduce statements made in the forums.
The Chronicle of the Horse may copy, quote, link to or otherwise reproduce posts, or portions of posts, in print or online for advertising or editorial purposes, if attributed to their original authors, and by posting in this forum, you hereby grant to The Chronicle of the Horse a perpetual, non-exclusive license under copyright and other rights, to do so.

8. We reserve the right to enforce and amend the rules.
The moderators may delete, edit, move or close any post or thread at any time, or refrain from doing any of the foregoing, in their discretion, and may suspend or revoke a user's membership privileges at any time to maintain adherence to the rules and the general spirit of the forum. These rules may be amended at any time to address the current needs of the board.

Please see our full Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for more information.

Thanks for being a part of the COTH forums!

Its really unfair.
    Yes, and they're definitely biased against people with a MA in Philosophy! I would be the best non-math/science degreed astronaut ever!!

        It wasn't a year-end award. It was a participation award. The rules are you have to show three times. He showed once. He can't seem to grasp that.

        He still can't accept it.

          And the horse was taken away from him before he could show anymore. Someone here knew the story about Chill Factor and how it was that his owner got a shot of reality and took him back before NP regressed his training further.

          Comment


            I think Chill Factor was trained by his owner very well up through second; he was confirmed at second level, but for various reasons he hadn't been ridden in some time, so she offered Nick to do some riding on him and get him out for a bit and get him into shape. I suspect she worked with him and the horse, and Nick showed CF at Training. Nick seemed well prepared for his own Training Debut. It wasn't the horse's training debut, but Nick said he was training the horse dressage, and had trained the horse through second, and was working on third level with the animal. I think he forgot that the owner would know just how much lying he was doing, he lies so much and so easily, telling people on his page that he had trained the horse and was now working on third level stuff.

            I presumed she had worked with Nick and her horse about the training level class, because he seemed rather well prepared and he got a nice score, and had never shown dressage before, so he seemed pretty well prepared for that class. He was the only one in the class and so got a Blue ribbon, too, which he crowed about, as well as how he was training the horse, But apparently he soon began bragging that he was working on third level movements with the horse, and his owner slammed on the breaks. The horse was out of shape, and entirely not ready or capable to be training third level, because he was so out of condition, and because as everyone knows, third level is quite a stressor and puts a ton of stress on joints etc, and a horse has to really be ready for it. My own horse, for example, went to second level, showed several classes with nice scores in the 60's, but in his training, we stopped there. With hock issues making it so that third level collection would probably be the end of his riding carreer, we stopped and didn't ask that kind of sit and collection of him, so he could have a better second half of his life without really hurting him, even though he could have done the work, it probably would have damaged him further. Third level is no joke, you can't just take a retired horse like CF, and push him like that. Even a horse in really good shape, like mine, might not be a good candidate to go further.

            I think there was talk of other concerns she had with Nick, not sure what, but you can't take an overweight horse with a poorly balanced overweight rider, and as we know, Nick rides heavily on the forehand, leaning over the front end, and a horse that hasn't been ridden in several years, and start trying out pretend higher level dressage exercises which could easily hurt the animal if not done slowly and correctly, and at the correct time in his rehab. Was my impression. Very thoughtless man.

            Airborne? Oh. Yes, he can take a joke. Once. After that, the joke's on you.

            Comment


              I am not sure why I decided to peek at NP's dressage page this morning... sore ankle keeping me from getting back to cleaning stalls... wanting that second cup of coffee.... maybe? Note to Nick - you are your own worst enemy...rants like this do not serve you well.

              I am not a keyboard warrior... I can and do ride. I do not need to show you "evidence" to prove it.

              No need to report me to "the Safe Sport" - I do not think you understand what that actually is and how it works.

              I have conversed with you in the past with my real name. I asked simple questions about some confusion you seemed to be presenting about aids for leg yields or shoulder-in and you came completely unglued. You were crass and rude and belligerent. You made a great show of banning me from your page so I could not post - no loss. You sent me a couple of vile PMs... but I confess that they made me laugh when I think I was supposed to be quaking in my boots that you were going to "ruin my career".

              I have no "dressage gods" - sorry to disappoint. You had some good points in your blog but - newsflash - you are not the only one who has ever raised those concerns or issues. Others who have raised them actually ride/coach/compete... at the top levels.

              I had more or less quit even following this thread after I noted how sad it was that you had created yet another fake Facebook account to praise yourself.

              Just get out there and ride and enjoy it and have fun - even without your own horse. You can take lessons instead of being a keyboard crusader/warrior... NO ONE is above taking lessons. Even Dr. Reiner Klimke took lessons...

              You seem to think that anything you say must be embraced 100% and never ever discussed or rebutted. That is not how the real world works.

              Posts like this will not get you clinics or new students... nor will creating elaborate conspiracy theories out of nothing, threatening people over the phone, posting fake Craig's List ads pretending to be someone who disagreed with you... and a wide assortment of cyberbullying you have carried out in the past - not your agent, lawyer, publicist, friend or whoever else you conjure up who posts in the exact same way that you do...

              The scum bag trolls on The Chronicle Of Horse have been cyber bullying and lying about me for over a month now. Actually it’s been going on for years, but only recently they started attacking me again, ever since my blog post. I guess they suffer from “Nick Peronace derangement syndrome”😆

              Such losers! Every lie and negative thing they say is easily debunked. Don’t believe any of it, especially the idiotic criticism coming from key board warriors who can’t ride. 😛

              Fortunately I have great reviews from people who’ve actually met and trained with me. It’s so pathetic what The Chronicle allows on its pages, especially when they supposedly stand up to cyberbullying. It’s also pathetic how many scum bag losers there are who flock to that site just to cut someone up they don’t know or ever met. And they hide behind screen names because they know I’ll report them to the Safe Sport. They’ll lose the right to ever compete, and they should! 🚨

              I posted some truth they couldn’t handle about their abusive dressage gods. The link is here: https://nickperonace1.wordpress.com/…/01/06/dressage-is-dy…/
              My blog has been shared and seen by almost 100k people! 🎉

              I will ALWAYS speak out against horse abuse, politics in the show ring, and big money influencing public opinion. If you love horses and care about the fate of dressage, YOU-WILL-TO. 💪

              But The chronicle is a dead on example as to why so many are leaving the horse industry. This is what gives equestrians bad names!
              #f***thechronicle 🖕🤬🖕🤬🖕🤬🖕

              Here posted are some reviews from ACTUAL people who I’ve helped. There are video testimonials found on this page from clients saying that I’ve helped when no other trainer could.
              Only trust those who have actually met & trained with me!! I also stand behind every accomplishment I’ve ever claimed to have achieved and can prove my credentials easily!!👍👍👍👍
              The only editing I did to that ^ post was to nuke the f-bomb.

              I find it rather sad... but back to reality. I have 20 stalls to finish cleaning... a sagging gate to fix... a sassy weanling that needs a lesson in handling her feet (as suddenly she seems to believe that no one has ever touched her below the knees or hocks before) ... and then I need to make a run to the feed store for a big load. The young guys there load the truck with ease but then I must unload it at this end... just old me. Once that is done I need to get over to another barn to school a horse... then back here to bring horses in and feed. Just another Sunday in that illustrious career you threatened to ruin...

                The problem is that they AREN'T debunked. NP just screams and shrieks that he's being bullied when people ask respectful questions, and that's very much how the whole thing started - people asking for him to explain his theories, claims and instructions. He doesn't debunk ANYTHING, he just screams, blocks and then rants - oh, and reads COTH frantically for mention of himself so he can scream about that too.

                      Ya gotta wonder whether he gets that his “like” (ha ha) of a pornographic rendering of Canadian rider Brittany Fraser posted by SW to be **cyberbullying**.

                      He does not know the woman. Nor has he taken a lesson with her to know her techniques. All the the things he accuses “the COTH Trolls” of not doing in **cyberbullying** him.

                      Yes, I know he is Sw’s lapdog....All that is needed is the ring in his nose where she can loop her little finger and lead him around.

                      That kind of behaviour is totally lacking in class and speaks more than anything said about him on CoTH. AND it can’t be debunked because it is you Mr.Peronace that put it out there in public. Let’s see how quickly you take it down because you have been called on it.

                          Nice!

                          From the ECRDA web site page above: "To qualify for a year end high score award, horse-rider combinations must have at least three scores from three different judges from three different show dates. The MEDIAN of these three scores will be used to rank the horse-rider combinations at each level. A prerequisite of one score of 55% or higher from the highest test at that level must be ridden."

                          "Achievement ribbons will be awarded to the horse-rider combinations receiving a score of 60% or higher on at least one test at any level if they have not won a year end award."

                          At the time Nick showed, it was called a participation award. He has shown that ribbon on his supporters page, but doesn't show the entire ribbon where it says "participation."

                                    I just watched Nick's somewhat sad rebuttal video. You are right, Nick - I should not have bothered to quote or respond to a long rant you posted on a public FB page where you are seeking responses. I cannot respond to you there - as you blocked me for politely disagreeing with you in the past and sent me nasty messages. Real name, real account, real location.

                                    I have never sent private messages warning anyone about you and never would (why on earth would I bother with that?) - so you are wrong about that.

                                    You want everyone to use "real names" - we could ask COTH posters kellydressage, nickwasright, trotpastme (and likely others) to use their real name... right? Sometimes you need to practice what you preach.

                                    Enough. Time to crawl out of my mommy's basement - actually the barn apartment attached to the big arena with no mommy for a thousand miles .... and tend to real horses in the real world. Long days, basically no vacations, aches and pains... all for the love of horses.

                                    ETA: As per Google maps, Mom is actually 2,196 miles away - just for clarity.. ;-)

                                      Yes. One Christmas he put Craigslist ads in on Christmas Eve with a Coth poster's personal phone number abut sexual solicitaion offers for Christmas Eve. She got thos horrible calls during dinner with her family. The man has no morals, and is one of the biggest pieces of scum there is. This is someone who had asked him to explain what was confusing her about his training methods on one of his FB pages.

                                          What I don't quite grasp is that if we're all losers, haters, bullies, weirdos and jerks (all his words), why does he even care what we think? Why put up rambling posts, videos and reviews and then delete it all, trying to curate his life in reverse, when he's called out on it? By deleting so frantically and constantly over the years, and making up all of his alters, his lawyer, and his publicist (hi Dexter!) to threaten all of us weirdos who live in their Mom's basements (again, his words), he's admitting that everything he says is a lie and he's trying not to get found out.

                                          Nick, write your truth and leave it up for the world to see; show all of your amazing prizes and ribbons, fabulous dressage scores and reviews - no-one cares what we all think, you KNOW it's true and we're all just losers - our opinions aren't worth a damn anyway. If it's all real, be proud of what you've achieved!
