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!

I just hope he listens to me and has a few chapters about racers and re-habing them. He has such a talent and understands them so well!

        • Edited... Thanks Manahmanah...

          All I can say is, it only takes a little tiny bit of Googling to find out what sort of a person we are dealing with.

            He can write a book but it sure won't get published by anyone. I have the e-mail from Xenophon Press saying they have no idea who he is, despite the fact he claims on is website that they are publishing his book.

            If anyone Googles Nick's name this thread comes up. You're not going to make this disappear. Anyone with basic internet sleuthing skills will find out the truth about Nick. It's not difficult and costs nothing.

              For someone who supposedly is into "non warmbloods" he sure has a lot of pictures of the Iron Spring Farm stallions all over his business Facebook page ...

                HA!
                If you're going to bash someone then you need to list your name and a picture in comparison. Put up or shut up, literally!

                • Jcs mods have requested we leave that subject alone. Can you edit it away so the thread doesn't get locked or deleted?

                  Comment


                  • Kelly, what other trainers have you worked with? What are your credentials?

                    I will admit, I am a more "casual" rider, I do not currently show. I am totally small fish compared to many on this forum board who have experience at the highest levels of the sport.

                    I used to event, rode to prelim level. My TB came to me fresh off the track, with a scared and injured mouth (due to his poor training and relentless pulling). With the help of my dressage coach, Lilo Fore, he was retrained, and became competitive at prelim level eventing (between first and second level dressage).

                    Lilo charged around the same rates as Nick charges. Here is a list of Lilo's accomplishments:
                    • FEI "I" judge
                    • USEF "R" judge for Sport Horse
                    • Founding member of the USDF Instructor Certification Program and current examiner
                    • Winner of numerous national and international Horse-of-the-Year awards for California, USDF and USET
                    • Member of the ground jury for numerous USET selection trials for the Pan American Games
                    • Recipient of the Equus Award for playing a major role in raising the quality of Dressage training and horses to an international level in Sonoma County.


                    And while Lilo is a very successful breeder of warmblood dressage horses, she is known for getting her start with an OTTB:

                    "Lilo Fore bought, for one dollar, an injured three year old American Thoroughbred, Dionysus. Under her training, Dionysus not only healed; he became U.S. "Horse of the Year" in all national levels. She and Dionysus were selected for the USET short list in 1976."

                    So, in comparison, Nick's accomplishments seem fairly light. When instructors with a wealth of knowledge like Lilo are available for the same rates, it makes one wonder why someone would choose to ride with a man, who by his own admission does not have many years in the saddle, and does not have much of an education background beyond reading some books.

                        So now he's not allowed to work or associate himself with warmbloods? And you hate him so much that's why you're checking his facebook?

                        • [edit]

                          Nick IS, however -- and oh so ironically -- in charge of a neighborhood crime watch! We know this is the same guy because this site lists his phone number and it's the number listed on his padressagetrainer site.

                          *link removed, but it can found by Goolging his name and phone number

                              Ive never bashed him not once. I simply repeated a summary of his credentials provided by him. Keep in mind he called me on my cell phone -completely unsolicited- using information he must have datamined from the internet so I am well within my right to research him.

                                • Guys, speculation into this guys personal life beyond what is published as his training record is going to get this thread closed and that would be a shame.

                                  • Wow you people are stalking creepy psychotics! You are actually looking up everyone with the same name as him?
                                    Wtf?
                                    This is borderline criminal activity here, the moderators really need to step in and delete the thread. Your jealousy is now spilling over into criminal activity!!

                                        You are apparently oblivious to the amount of information a person can find on the internet. ANYONE can find information such as work history, addresses, domain names, and other business connections through simple and free internet search engines. No one is stalking him. It's public information that any simpleton can access.

                                        Any experienced rider would research a clinician before riding with them, especially if they'd never heard of them before. Clearly Nick isn't catering to experienced riders with a enough forethought to do so. Otherwise, all of this information would've come out ages ago.

                                        • From Peronace :
                                          December 12th: I suppose it is safe to say this now because I'm not going to follow through with it. The Van Olst Breeders in Holland ( Ferro, Negro, Netto) were considering me for a trainer position. They really loved the pictures of Chevy, and also how light I ride. They saw a few video clips and wanted me to try out in person. I can not move my family to another country, and I guess I just wanted to see if I could make it? But either way, Im here to stay folks lol!!
                                          They considered him?

                                          Could someone contact them? (My english and dutch aren't good enough to elucide this mistery.)
