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 are likely better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts that violate these rules. Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting, but administrators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts upon request.

Outright inflammatory, vulgar, harassing, malicious or otherwise inappropriate statements and criminal charges unsubstantiated by a reputable news source or legal documentation will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

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!

      My apologies for the oversight.

      This really is full of Seinfeldisms.

      What keeps running through my mind is: No dressage for you!!!

      I keep wanting to stop reading this thread, but I JUST. CAN'T. HELP. IT.
      Show me your horse and I will tell you who you are.


      • Well...I saw this man's video of a piaffe, and all I have to say it, the rider should never be doing more 'piaffe' than the horse.

        • I piaffed in my pants a little.


          • Any word from Dressage Today?

            I can only see bits of the Facebook page, I suppose because I am not a Facebook member, but he is claiming that someone "hacked" his account to get the "piaffe" video.


            • Holy hell they unlocked it! Way to go mods!


              • I asked, politely..


                • He has updated his facebook with a threat to sue someone named Katie. He also does not understand locked threads since he apparently tried to post but couldn't get on. He took it as him personally being blocked by trolls.

                  Thank you mods for unlocking!

                  The virtual "woodshed" seems the only remedy for willful fools .


                  • The question has been answered ! Dressage Today doesn't know him either.


                    Thank you COTHers for caring about the people who could have been taken for a financial ride by Mr. Nick Peronace.


                    • I've got bloody mary mix (with old bay of course!) and some popcorn - who's with me?

                      Who the heck is Katie anyway? I saw on his FB that he is out for blood from that person. This is awesome.

                              I am posting this here because it deeply concerns me how the evil of a misinformed jealous idiot, could affect my reputation. Of course Im going to sue Katie, but I wanted to show this prestigious award I received for helping my community. ...The awful for rumors that she is spreading is nothing but links to half truths. I have, and will always be active in my community and helping charity. I resent Katie trying to paint me out to be something sinister when she in fact is the evil! I let my award for helping my community speak for itself, as I do with the photographs of my riding. Once again, should anyone have any questions, please don't hesitate to inbox me. I will be happy to show you the truth in Katies twisted lies. And, in case you are wondering why I received this prestigious award for helping my community, here is why:

                              - organized a Philadelphia town watch that help in the arrest of 6 gang members

                              -Raised money by hosting a charity fundraiser for a local hospital

                              - volunteers for Greenpeace helping the environment

                              - Feeds the homeless every year at his church out of his own pocket

                              - gathered supply donations to help therapeutic riding

                              I am literally a pillar in my community, and it is the evil work of the devil to think otherwise, and it is for that very reason I am going to teach Katie a hard lesson about trying to assassinate someone's character without knowing all the facts.
                              KATIE, CHECK YOUR MAILBOX DAILY, YOU ARE ABOUT TO GET SERVERD!!!!!!See More

                              Also, there is an unflattering video of me teaching me horse my horse Piaffe for the very first time. I was only 17 in that video and this was literally the first time I ever attempted Piaffe not just with THAT HORSE, but AT ALL! I had NO instruction I had no one on the ground training me at this point and I was self-taught. What the critics should do is look at the photographs of the finished pro...duct and how light and forward and engaged he is. By experimenting and trial and error I TRAINED CHEVY to not just Grand Prix level, but Airs Above Ground as well. Furthermore, if the critics liked looking at videos why not upload the other videos of me riding other horses? The same way you dug up that video you can dig up video of me riding other Grand Prix horses, and just any horse in general. I did NOT release that training video to the public because it's an incomplete identification of my abilities, but if you critics are going to somehow hack into my Facebook and pull out videos please pull out the positive stuff also!!!

                              Ooooh you evil people !

                              ... _. ._ .._. .._


                              • His FB page is kind of a gong show. How anyone can ride with someone who is so unprofessional and immature is beyond me.

                                • So glad this thread opened up again! I asked my SO if he knew of this guy as he is only a bit older than we are and my SO used to compete in dressage in the same area. I showed him the website and low and behold he does remember him - competed in the same shows a few times. He remembers Nick as a mediocre rider with a huge ego, who was also a complete jerk. Sounds like nothing has really changed in the last 10 to 15 years lol

                                  Glad COTHers have exposed this guy and hopefully saved people from being sucked into his "training program"


                                  • For a guy of his age, he has a curious lack of internet savvy, or maybe he only pleads ignorance when asked to post updated photos or videos. Maybe he should ask alibi_18 to do some photoshopping for him. http://s1161.photobucket.com/user/al...0b8be.jpg.html


                                    • I am literally a pillar in my community


                                      • Great stuff !!
                                        "You know what would be ideal? If I could find like a hunter that does easy quick changes that is alittle older so his muscles are also developed, say around 10yr. All Id have to do is polish a bit and teach lateral movements and go right into a Third Level test at a show. Doesnt take long really. Then over the winter I can work on perfecting the collection, and develop the right muscles while teaching Tempi Changes, and by spring again compete 4th level Prix St. George.

                                        That could be the game plan anyway lol!! "

                                        Boy - is he going to show y'all !

                                          Uh oh, poor Katie. She's going to be serverd. Does that mean she's going to be cut in half or have her computer hacked? By a pillar, no less.
