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!

          It would be so worth it! And he could use that $ since it costs about that to "serve" someone with a lawsuit. "Servering" is more expensive, I think.

            • Ironically enough, when in court and you are "severed" it means you are removed from a case.

                Yes but Nick wasn't talking about severance, was he? LOL. That would mean Katie would escape his lawsuit. Or clinic. Now I forget how he spelled it. Was it "severed" or "severded" or what? It wasn't severed, was it? Spell check is getting me now. Time for wine.

                  • OK maybe a full-blooded Arab can eat our lunches, but we're part Arabian, and all full-blooded Arabs we've met and boarded with like us. But we'd be so scared to be ridden by Nick. Of course, we can buck pretty well.

                    • Can anyone direct me to the NJ clinic link? This might be worth braving the elements AND the price of admission

                      Comment


                      • He wrote "servered". Remember being served gets you into a court case, being severed gets you out. Writing 'servered' means you aren't writing the great American novel anytime soon.

                            Just follow the crowds. And hide your camera. 50$ to the first video from Nick's clinic.

                            • So a recap of this thread.

                              We have Mr. Peronace, self described here as per his website:

                              Nick Peronace is Grand Prix Dressage Trainer specializing in "Non-Warmbloods" and young horses.
                              He claims a number of other things at his website and through his facebook page.
                              • He is located at {address redacted to protect the stable owner}
                              • He has a book that will be published by xenophon press
                              • He has an upcoming article in Dressage Today
                              • He has trained over 10 horses to grand prix level including his own "chevy", each one taking approximately two years or so
                              • He has recently been considered for a high profile training position in Europe



                              Mr. Peronace uses the above listed credentials to cold call barns across the united states to try to book clinics.



                              Upon further investigation, we understand that
                              • The barn at the address he lists has no idea who he is. He or his defender "kelly" then states he doesn't work there but has ring permissions for ship-in lessons. This barn then corrects this claim, he does not have ring permission and does not teach ship-in lessons at this location.
                              • He is not and has never been considered for publishing by xenophon.
                              • He is not and has never been considered for publishing by Dressage Today.
                              • He is not a grand prix rider or trainer. His training experience consists of "3 years on and off as a working student under a dressage trainer" whom he stopped working with at the tender age of 17. He continued to self-train until the age of 21 where he admitted he "got out of horses" until now (over a decade later)
                              • He has never shown any horse at any recognized show, ever, at any level.
                              • He was not ever considered for any training position in Europe at the barn he claims to have been. They have never heard of him.



                              We do not have many pictures of Mr. Peronace "training horses" besides this singular video.

                              [edit]

                                Twas a week after Christmas and all through the 'net
                                Was talk of a trainer, as bad as they get
                                His video horrid, that poor Peronace
                                His art not good, he's no Liberace
                                But his mouth was big, his words all lies
                                Of greatness, of skill, all stumbling tries
                                Because the one thing this schlep didn't know
                                Is how far horsewomen are willing to go
                                They don't like liars who make false claims
                                They'll check out the facts, these curious dames
                                So I'll tell you Nick just give up the fight
                                You reek of fraud, you're just not quite right
                                Might I suggest you go back to school
                                So you no longer write like some blubbering fool
                                And take a trip to a trainer near you
                                They just might teach you a thing or two
                                And remember always when you tug at that bit
                                That's a thing you do when you ride like chit.
                                KM--I bow to your poetic genius. You win!

                                Now, can we get a little horsey stick art to make this really, truly, COTHily complete? Please!
                                Flip a coin. It's not what side lands that matters, but what side you were hoping for when the coin was still in the air.

                                You call it boxed wine. I call it carboardeaux.

                                  He was there in December, apparently, since the owner had great things to say about his lessons.
