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!

    Oh, call the waaambulance. I have very nice Appaloosas who are very breed characteristic. I've also been incredibly fortunate to ride them with some of the very best dressage trainers around. I've never met one worth their salt who gives a flying flip about the breed of the horse if it's capable of doing the work, the same with judges, so that non-warmblood stuff in my experience is just a smokescreen.

      OK. Whatever. Dressage world is full of these people, but don't besmirch the name of Appies. I trained and competed mine through FEI, and despite prejudice, did just fine, as with anything else. If this dude did the training in any way correctly, he would have done OK showing. I'm sure there are people who don't show and put themselves out there to prove their talent who are great, but if your goal is really dressage, you want someone who has walked the walk. DeKunfy is the same way--never shown, various, ever-changing history of accomplishments.

      I'm all for anyone who can get what help they need from someone, but don't make stuff up.

          It has been brought to my attention there is some negativity being said about me here on this page. My contact info is public, so there was never any need to hide behind a screen name, if you have questions Im easily found and I would be happy to answer them. The best way to contact me is on facebook at my page: Nick Peronace Dressage. Please feel free to forward all your questions and I will be happy to respond.

          The truth is, NONE of you nor YOUR SO CALLED TRAINERS have worked with me. I know this because everyone who works with me gets positive results and they speak very highly of me. This is why Im booked for so many clinics.

          I dont playing some of you for being skeptical simply because I do not compete. I did once, but was on an Appaloosa and after one schooling show at Grand Prix and scoring very low, I realized politics were against me and I became more focused on the art of dressage, not so obsessed with ribbons and trophies.

          I would be happy to work with any of you, and I welcome your challenge. My style of riding is forward led by reins of silk. The pictures on my website show this, and if you truly wish to learn equestrian art, please contact me.

          Unfortunately, people will always criticize. However, if I wasnt getting positive results then I would say your criticism is warranted. But thats not the case here. I ALWAYS get positive results, and I have never worked with a single one of you on this forum. So lets me fair, I invite you all to contact me NOT HERE BUT ON MY FACEBOOK PAGE, I WILL NOT REPLY TO THIS FORUM.

          Seek the truth before you talk.
          I am sure that you would "be happy to work with" any of us, and I can only imagine how you would love us to "contact you". However, don't hold your breath. You won't find many COTHers as easy to bullsh*!t as you seem to find people on facebook.

          Of course you will post here, but then again only the one time. Hmm.. Why would you come here at all if you are unwilling to have a discussion?

          You are doing yourself no good at all with that marketing strategy.

            Did anyone else get a PM? "It would be who of you to go to his clinic Feb 23..."
            And the whole thing where they call him Mestro (is that like Pesto?) is too funny, reminds me of the Seinfeld episode where Elaine was dating Bob Cobb the conductor of the Fireman's Volunteer Orchestra and insisted ALL call him "The Maestro"

                For a group of people who claim not to admire Peronace, and bark at the notion that all of you are actually deeply jealous, you sure do go on and on about him. Could of fooled me! Am I to understand you people also liked his facebook page?
                So let me get this straight. You all are saying Peronace is a fake, can not ride, does not know what he is talking about and you hate him, but yet not a single one of you has ever taken one single lesson, will not go to his clinics, and will not contact him directly like he has requested but will continue to bash him behind his back here on this forum?

                But your not jealous?
                Could of fooled me! That is like criticizing a movie you have never seen

                  Haven't seen enough of his riding to be jealous of. Perhaps some youtube videos of his riding would be helpful?

                    Meh, I don't see anything in those photos that would inspire me to pay him for an opinion. He can't ride well.

                        Yes there are pictures and to the best of my knowledge Chevy is the only horse he has trained to what is considered Grand Prix but also to do some of the air movements. In his pictures, you can see how light he rides, even doing airs without a bridle! Peronace gives several clinics around the world every year so he must be doing something correctly! He has been working with my two horses and my mothers horses, and we will be at his clinic together in NJ in February

                          Kelly, the challenge with the pictures is that the horse is not through his back and his muscling shows that he is not ridden through his back most of the time. His topline should be more developed and he should not have that large underneck. So - doing the tricks is one thing but doing them with correct engagement is another. Light or heavy, they must sit and engage their core muscles. The pictures on the black horses look better - but those are not the ones he claims ownership to their training - hence the debate.

                          But thanks for weighing in. It is good to hear from someone with firsthand experience.

                            Peronace is always telling us to ride forward. Maybe what you are seeing is a confirmation flaw in the horse itself?

                              No......no topline is not a conformation flaw. Even the ugliest necked horses can have beautiful toplines if ridden properly. I am no dressage guru but it was the first thing I noticed in the photos also. I am also an Appaloosa owner and lover.

                                This.

                                Why on earth would this guy, who traveled the world and trained with the Masters and have fabulous students all over, only have a few crappy pictures on his website/facebook pages. I'm not a pro but have better quality pictures than that. (and I hope shows better quality riding as well!)

                                This guy and the Bucking Rev. are of the same cray box.
                                May the best lawsuit win this case!

                                  forward does not equal engaged - although it can be a good start.

                                    Must agree that his website needs a make over lol! But on his facebook you can see pictures and video of him riding at all levels, even Grand Prix. There is video of him riding my horse, and also pictures of him starting a Paso stallion that I think he did a really nice job with.
