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!

  • Because we're totally going to believe the words of a man who writes like English is a foreign language for him and is already fraudulently using another barn's address... Trying to lie about working from another barn? Why not.

      You know, I agree. I knew a person who advertised themselves as a GP rider/trainer. This was before it was so easy to look up show results. Lots of people drank the Kool-Aid before it was revealed that this person *actually believed* they were a GP trainer in a past life, and that was their credentials for this life. In retrospect it's a funny story but at the time this person wreaked a lot of havoc on people and horses. I knew another trainer who advertised themselves as a GP rider because they took lessons on a GP schoolmaster (was a training-level rider). Again - wreaked havoc on people and horses. I think people who so grossly misrepresent themselves can cause a lot of trouble, if not a lot of damage if they are as delusional as this guy is. He posted a "reply" from "his publisher" on his FB page regarding his dressage book. The publisher clearly replied that they don't even consider taking on a book unless they get a completed manuscript with pictures, so he'd have to submit a finished product even to be considered. You can see from the exchange that there isn't even a book "in real preparation", much less submitted for acceptance/publication.

        • Just a note: I am so glad this thread is here. And....I looked again at the video of the percheron/friesian/? horse after the 2nd thread (on eventing) was closed, and if you look at it and listen, the clinking sound is rhymic even when the horse is being ridden in a circle AWAY from the walls of the indoor. So there is something on that horse making that sound. Do rhythm beads sound like that? My friend bought some to use on her horse and they did make a sound, but not that sound as in the video.

          Oh and.....did Katie get "servered?"

              This should help pass the last hour at work.

              In all seriousness, I am SO skeptical of trainers just for this reason. So many wackos. Once you find some good ones, hold on to them!!

              • We're going to merge this thread with the original to keep all the information and opinions together. We've removed some posts making some comments about this trainer that go beyond that which has been proven, particularly in terms of potential future behavior.

                Thanks,

                • Wow. Just when we all thought that the show had left town, we are treated to an encore! (Or maybe it's just "the thing that won't leave.)

                  Clapping of hands. We are being given a respite from our winter boredom, yet again, Whee!

                  Mr. Peronace, your behavior is infantile--at best--and anyone who teaches anything to *anyone* should have enough insight and sensitivity to realize how one is being perceived by one's "target audience" (or in this case, potential students); when they run screaming from you (or avoid you like the plague), that would be a "hint" that you are not being well-received.

                  Time to get some professional help, methinks...

                        Agreed. I still hear a funky noise. But I don't ride in an indoor arena frequently enough to recognize normal percussion versus funky percussion. Especially if the ground were frozen. So I'll let that dog lie...

                            You go around beating your mare to trot like a donkey.
                            Everyone who comes out to watch you will see that.

                            I got you great results and you were trotting by yourself
                            with no problems. When I asked about coming out, you said
                            because the other trainer left that you are having money problems, and
                            could not pay for my training, but YOU ASKED ME to email you wgat it would
                            take to get me there as head trainer. I did just that, and really gave you a sweet deal.

                            Later that day I get a phone call from another trainer who says SHE is the trainer there and how dare I invade on her turf! I then called you and because
                            you couldnt answer for it, and how Unprofessional you were by showing my proposal to another trainer just like you just showed everybody here, you hung up on me!!
                            I wasnt done talking or asking my questions, so yes I called you back. Instead of being an adult and answering your phone, I left a vm. I didnt say anything on thst vm other then the type of person you are!

                            THATS THE TRUTH!!
                            Now, people of course will its a lie. Thats ok. But I have told my side, and I hope these people come to your farm and see you beat that poor mare!!

                            What Im still lost about was why?
                            Why ask me to make you a proposal if you already had a trainer?
                            Why ask for my help at all if your trainer was already helping you?

                            Horse people can be so crazy, and lady, you are a complete nut!
                            Mr. Peronance, you may first want to look up the word "truth" in the dictionary...you obviously were absent that day in school!

                            Second, Golden Gait Farm does not, or has ever had a "head trainer" We have multiple disciplines, Dressage, 3 day Eventing and Hunters/Jumpers/Equitation. You lied to me and misled me regarding your credentials which is why I even allowed you to come to the farm for an interview. Yes, our Dressage trainer of the last 3 years purchased her own farm because she needed more stalls for her personal growth and that left a small block of stalls open. You lied to me and told me you were leasing space at a farm in PA and were not happy there and wanted to relocate to NJ. The only results you got for me were how to spot a con artist a mile away! Should I tell the story now of how when you entered the barn and my horse was on the cross ties you asked to give her a treat and then proceeded to pet her on her face and she innocently cleared her nasal passage *snort* and you jumped out of your skin and turned purple? If you would like me to go into further detail of your visit here, I can go on for quite some time, as trainers and clients in my barn are STILL talking about you! My intention of this post and requesting you to remove my photos from your Facebook page was not meant in any way to embarrass you, you are doing a good enough job of that on your own. I do not want to be associated with you in any way. I do thank you for removing my photos from your page and blocking me from it's access.

                            Lastly...No one here "beats" a horse. I'm not sure where that fabrication comes from...Oh, your delusional mind, that's right! I did not say I couldn't afford you, in fact I did say I would not pay you for something I did not feel you were qualified for! You begged me to announce you as head trainer, that is the point I knew you were nuts! I told you that your time away from the horse world was not beneficial to you and what you were trying to achieve over night. I was being very nice. And I did tell you I had to call you back when you called me because I had a horse in my hand and you demanded I listen to you and listen good! I'm sorry, but that is just not the way I conduct business.

                            Best wishes Mr. Peronace!

                            • Dear Nick, Can you please tell me where you showed your lovely horse Chevy at Grand Prix? Your Dressage at Devon Chevy's Cup description says that you trained and showed your horse at GP. I know another person who trained and showed her Appy to GP, yours would be the second I know of if this is true.

                                      Yes - But I'd only get it from the library...I certainly would not pay for it!
