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's hard to believe that was written by a grown man with no disabilities.

    I would think at first that a tween or young teen wrote this stuff. Then some of the stuff I thought possibly English is not his first language but apparently someone's SO actually knows him. Then the basic misspellings not even teenyboppers would use.

    Not too many grown family men write things like:

    horse "cousins"

    "And this lady would actually beat this horse with a crop hundreds of times"

    "So, she had the idea to take me on as the new head trainer of her facility and hope I could fill the stalls."

    "and I SOOO dont blame anyone for becoming skeptical"

    "I NEVER EVER call myself...."

    "I have trained in ALL High School movements, including Spanish walk and Spanish trot."

    "I am NOT a pompous in any way."


    double exclamation points: "this is so weird!!" and again in the same paragraph: "this is so weird!!"


    • "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. "

      Not sure what he is trying to say other than we are probably not going to see any video.

      What is does "Bioforce from any of you are referring clients etc etc cetera" mean?
      The virtual "woodshed" seems the only remedy for willful fools .

        • I didn't read the entire thread, but, oh yes I will settle in for a delicious read. But the grainy video was all I needef to "get" the thread. Why do asshats think they can get away with such ludicrous claims? Especially whem all evidence doesn't support their self aggrandizement? Holy stoopid self deluded person.


          • Nick, if you are reading this, and i am sure you are.

            The best course of action here is to stop with all the lies. Just stop.

            You can still pick the low hanging fruit by marketing yourself to "intro to dressage" people. Hell, i could do that myself and i have only ever shown training level.

            You are not doing yourself any favors by spinning this web. You have been completely outed and need to go back to the den and devise another strategy. All is not lost. If you persist with your lies people are going to get very ugly with you. It has already been started. If you want to market yourself as an up-down trainer, or someone who can help rank newbies get the hang of dressage, then do that. You are not even qualified to do this but it would at least be honest.

            If you insist on perpetuating your lies and defending them at all costs I will (among others) create a flyer of the summary of everything you have lied about and post it on every single facebook group and horse board in existence. There will be nothing to sue me for, i am but a potential customer who investigated your so-called credentials.

            Go now. Stop this. Admit you are full of shit. Admit it to yourself, this will be the hardest thing for you.

            Do not try to dupe any others into thinking you are a big name trainer. It's just going to end badly for you.


            • I think the purported article and book are quite possibly the most hilarious thing about this entire person and thread. I mean seriously, I've seen 3rd graders whose writing is more coherent and eloquent than this man's. IF these conversations with Dressage Today and Xenophon happened (and that is a VERY big if), the other parties were most certainly blowing him off in the easiest way they knew how. The editing that would have to happen on anything he might submit would be absolutely soul crushing


              • Mr. Peronace,

                I care that you are making these claims because you are asking people to pay you to teach them. You are misleading people about your "Book" your "Article" and even your ADDRESS.


                • This thread has made me (a newbie to these forums) realize that you can count on COTHers to have your back. This is the place to be if you need to research any potential trainer etc. There's no hiding from the truth when these folks are involved!


                  • Now he's just randomly replying, I think he's confused about which post he's on. And he put up a screen shot of his supposed rejection e-mail from the Holland trainer.
                    It's a small world -- unless you gotta walk home.


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


                      • What professional talks like this? From his FB:

                        Nick Peronace Dressage You will know the dates of clinics as I make the news public. I really don't care who appreciates that notion. And if you think I somehow I owe you that information do me a favor put your lip over your head and swallow!!

                                  Oh! What a brilliant marketing strategy.

                                  Needless to say, I don't think Mr. Nick Peronace is going to be overwhelmed with people wanting to host or attend his "clinics".

                                  I have to say, I am stunned that he still doesn't get it.

                                  He seems to thing we are actually interested in his clinics, not that we are skeptical that he has any ("world wide" or not).

                                      Huh. Then I guess he hasn't seen the 'Beefman' comment someone left.

                                        You may want to delete your original description on this page of how this happened before someone suspects that you don't always tell the truth. You stated you had been selected to interview/ride in person but declined not wanting to move your family. Doesn't quite go with this email....
