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 facebook inbox has been blowing up all day, so I am going to provide a service. The Chronicle Of The Horse is a major publication so I see this as a way to soak up some exposure. I have no idea why this thread got started, but I am thankful for it. It has provided me with advertisement and exposure, though some negative some positive ad well, and with every negative strikes curiosity, and the Curious will come out to a clinic or contact me for a lesson to see exactly what it is I do, so again, thank you!

        Criticism in itself does not bother me. Surely not everyone has the same taste in music or movies or anything else, and you can find forums all over the internet. Just because a small group or even a large group says a certain rock band has no talent or a movie is terrible does not make it true, it only makes it true to that particular group.

        In reading some of these post, I can 100% guarantee that anyone who claims they have worked with me and did not get positive results is an absolute liar. The closest I've ever come to a dissatisfied client recently, was a lady in NJ who pissed off her dressage trainer who also kept many clients horses on her facility. This lady rode her poor mare front to back, and so the horse was not forward and learn to suck back. This mare developed a real ring problem and this lady would actually beat this horse with a crop hundreds of times in a row to try to get any response.
        What I had her do, was first I rode the mare. I did not touch her mouth at all. Once I asked for trot and I felt her lock up, I backed off, and dismounted. Some trainers might have dug a spur or use the whip, but that is not my style. Instead I went back to basics and got the mare listening to me from the ground walking, troting, by voice command right by my shoulder. Then I asked this lady to get on while I stayed right next to her doing the same thing. All this lady had to do was sit there. Once the mare was troting and walking, and the transitions were smooth I then detached the lead rope and she was able to ride around her arena and she was very happy with the result.
        The dissatisfaction came when she asked me to keep coming out but wanted me to do it for practically nothing. So, she had the idea to take me on as the new head trainer of her facility and hope I could fill the stalls. She asked for my proposal which I provided, but what she didn't tell me was that she was considering another trainer and she actually showed that trainer my proposal! Horse people are the strangest I have ever met and this one was really weird! I have no idea what she was trying to do or why she did what she did but that led to a negative angry response from me and that is closest I've ever come to dissatisfaction.

        I have always been 100% honest about my abilities I've never lied I've never let anyone on I will tell you what I can do and what I cannot do. One thing I want to clear up, and I SOOO dont blame anyone for becoming skeptical when they hear the term "Grand Prix rider", and expect to see some scores or some competition history. I need to change that on my website, and stop saying that. This is my fault, I do not want to lead anyone on, I do not compete at that level! I went to a schooling show and that is the most I have done at Grand Prix. However, I am certainly trained to that level and also self-taught trained to airs above ground. I have trained in ALL High School movements, including Spanish walk and Spanish trot.
        Also, to clear up, I NEVER EVER call myself a master of dressage, other people call me that! I am not arrogant I am NOT self deluded and I am NOT a pompous in any way. I am, very confident in my abilities and what I can produce. We might disagree on certain aspects of training but that does not make me right and you wrong or vice versa.

        It is 9pm here on the East Coast. I will be happy to answer any question for the next 30 minutes. Questions about my training my background my credentials Exedra that's perfectly OK, but I am not here to argue I don't like going online I hate the internet and I hate computers. So, please, let's keep this questions and answers I will not argue with anyone I want to make that very clear. Lets keep this adult.
        I am ready for the first question....
        According to this post, he seemed quite sure that he would "soak up" some exposure!

        Oh, yes! I think he has been exposed beyond his wildest dreams..

          I'm the Katy that posted on his facebook asking him for an explanation as to why he lied about the Dressage Today article. He has refused to answer my question and actually deleted it a few minutes ago. He's also blocked me from posting on his page...this is a tremendous loss for me, let me assure you.

          Just for clarification, I am not the Katie that he is going to sue and sever. I hope she is anxiously awaiting by her mailbox, wherever she may be.


          • Can a FB user delete a post that is not a reply to a post they made? For example, if chicagojumper went back and made a separate comment with the DT link, could Peronace delete it?

                • The thread is the gift that keeps on giving.

                  Also, to the person who posted the video of the video, there are ways to download the video file in your browser so you can re-upload the original video. I really hope you can so that we can enjoy a more detailed video of the master at work. Though Youtube may put an age restriction on a video that vulgar.





                  • From NP Facebook page:

                    " Aviator" cousin of the great stallion Contango.

                    Who refers to a horse as a "cousin" of .... Horses aren't even considered "siblings" based on sire alone, they have to be full sibs...

                    The ignorance and stupidity is deafening.
                    From now on, ponyfixer, i'll include foot note references.


                    • Update from Facebook:

                      Nick Peronace Dressage Dressage Today is definitely going to published an article that I am currently working on about training the non warmblood. It is going to be in the Aug issue 2014. I have personally been in touch with the editor and if u care to share this message with her by either taking a pic of the screen or by link, please do. Same with my publisher. Maybe the mis understanding is coming within the wording that everyone is using?
                      I want to be crystal clear here so don't misunderstand this time: I am currently working on writing an article to submit to dressage today upon their request. If the editor for whatever reason can't remember speaking with me or can I use this or something strange like that please provide me a phone number so I can call her. I even have screen pics of our conversation verifying that they would like an article written!

                      As for the book, I bet Richared who runs the company forgets about me also we haven't spoken in months! How that conversation was like this. We met up at a show, we talked about myself writing a book about training a non warm blood. Rich asked if I generate enough interest and I told him I could based on all the clinics I'm giving. He asked me to start writing a manuscript and when it is finished to contact him. So, if u people somehow misunderstood that I have already submitted work to either dressage today, or my publisher then you are mistaken.
                      I hope that clears it up, and if any of them deny that they even know me please provide me the contact information because that's just the most bizarre thing I've ever heard. I have Richard cell phone so don't worry about that, but if the magazine forgets about talking to me that is something I need to touch base with them on.

                      Other thing here. Maybe its my fault. Maybe I should never have said anything until a month before something is published. I had no idea there would be so much jealousy over someone as small and insignificant as myself! Im not some major competitor, I really don't see what all the fuss is about in everyone wanting to point the finger right away and cry out scam, especially when I keep getting these public rude post instead of private professional messages.

                      This whole experience has been so surreal! I had absolutely no idea there was such a fuss about me until someone showed me the link to the Chronicle. Why? What is wrong with everyone? Why not just PM me with questions? Why do everything in public and no one even contacted me?
                      Like I said, Im glad I have a lot of your real names because a lot of you are incredibly unprofessional, and quite frankly should be ashamed of yourselves!

                      Where's the maturity level aren't we all adults or are you a bunch of children?

                      Im sorry but I am simply just a guy trying to teach and give lessons . I'm doing something beautiful. Dressage is my art and my passion. I am going to have a really hard time if I ever meet any of you, because of how some of you have been acting lately. Evil with a capital E.

                      What happened to professional courtesy? What happened to manners or were you all raised by wolves?
                      And then you get the handful of people who are actually sincere and wanting to see video. It makes me not only never want to share any video with any of you, but never talk to any of you or Bioforce from any of you are referring clients etc etc cetera you make me not want to share a professional courtesy at all. Why would I?

                      And if I do not provide video the majority of you are going to go right back to your grade school bullying and spreading rumors and spreading your lies Exedra Exedra.

                      Im totally disgusted!!

                          It looks like I can't post in any way - on his wall, in reply to another user's post, etc. I may or may not have immediately tried to go back and put my question back up on a different part of his page.

                          Looks like we need another volunteer to pester him. I'm still anxiously awaiting to see if he answers the question regarding his schedule for the Mestro Peronace World Passage Tour(tm) sponsored by Enterprise Steaks. I want to get my ticket before they sell out...

                            Mr. Peronace posted a facebook picture of the servered Katie Amber and accused her of, well, posting lies and defaming his character. I no longer see her picture on his site.


                            • I could hardly believe my eyes when I logged on and discovered this thread resurrected..totally awesome!!!
                              I can't help but suspect this guy (and his sidekick Kelly) is an elaborately staged hoax though. This guy just can't be for real.

                                He is for real. He called my cell phone looking to book a clinic.


                                • I did publish a book (not about dressage but...) and I got some news for Mr. P. You aren't slotted for publishing until the *contract* is signed. A contract. It has performance schedules in it, deadlines, expectations for both parties, and a publication schedule. It's like a big wordy document that your attorney looks at and you sign. Sometimes you get a check too.

                                  Mr. P: Do you remember signing something like this? I didn't think so. What the guy at the show told you (if there really was a guy at the show, I'm kind of doubting that now too but anyway...) was really just a kind blowoff. Anybody can submit a manuscript to a publisher. Authors do it all the time and, sad for you, most of them get rejected

                                  Talking to a guy at a horse show about a book that you haven't even written yet does not get you a publication date.

                                  The end.

                                      Nick Peronace Dressage Mind you something else it was brought to my attention. Why do you people care if I applied for a position at Van Olst or any other farm? Why would you go an email and phone call and everything else and hope to catch some scam? I am completely baffled by this whole ordeal its so weird!! Am I really that important to all of you? If Im not, then don't make me out to be so important. But just this once, and only because I saw an email from them saying that they've never heard of me, I am actually going to publish a screenshot of the email that they sent me denying me the position. For the life of me I don't understand why you lose sleep over such silliness but if it makes you all feel better I will show you the freaking email.

                                      Really, this is so weird!!

                                        Surprising that he doesn't have contact info for the magazine that is going to publish his article..

                                        Exedra? Really?

                                        I don't see authorship in Mr. Peronace's future.

                                        I don't doubt however, that Mr. Peronace would have the gall to apply for a position at a top barn and surely would not be surprised if he has an email rejection from a top barn, if he tried to sell them his services.

                                          Oh hell, I didn't intend to join, but having seen the deleted post that would explain poor Katie, I felt like I had to.

                                          So to explain this mysterious Katie thing... this morning he had posted to his facebook a screenshot of some girl named "Katie Marie"s facebook page with an epic rant about how she was the one contacting his supporters and e-mailing lies to barns hosting his clinics. I wish I had a screenshot of the rant. It was pure epicness. He referenced the photos of her in the screenshot as "The face of evil!"

                                          Peace out, I think I'll go back to lurking
