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!

            As you well know...she speaks for a lot of us, Theo. Even I have to admit that your worship of Anky is getting a little juvenile. And, your desire to rub peoples noses in it is becoming a little more than rude.

              Oh for heaven's sake. If she was an american and had won three gold medals for YOUR country, you would be throwing flower petals in her path too, and you'd be strangling all the anti rollkur people with your bare hands.

              Oh and look, the curb shank is all the way back when there is no tension on the reins.

              And what is that? The horse is standing there like an old trail horse, with the reins hanging down, for a whole interview. Like what most people who watch dutch tv have seen many many times.

              Welcome to COH, where you can actually get in trouble for LIKING someone.

              YOU ALL need some decaff.

                  Not sure what that was all about...

                  since I don't speak Dutch.

                  But I did see a very quiet horse, resting in cross ties and meandering down a country road.

                  So, when do we get to see Salinero ?

                    I have seen videos of the horse at home before. Anky and her horses are filmed and interviewed quite often. In general he is very quiet and well behaved.

                        It very kind of loosely(VERY loosely) reminds me of a school horse that I competed on a while back. She was a bit more sensitive and foreward to begin with, but was very capable of walking and halting nice and quietly during hacks and lessons. Fast forward to a show, even a really, really tiny one, and if you attempted to halt her she'd dance every which way at best and explode at worst. If I had to halt her at any point during a class where she was alone in the ring, my trainer would tell me to "pause" and keep going before I aggravated her and hope that the rest of the ride would make up for it. So, I can sympathize with her, especially because this was a little tiny pony mare that was just a little tricky, compared to 17+ hands of something that is most like 10x harder to ride.

                          Theo, welcome to COTH. Where people don't CARE about Anky or the Dutch/Germans. What's the difference again?

                            Maybe he just gets hyped up when he sees a dressage ring... his groom was bragging after the Athens Olympics about about how laid-back he is....

                              This bears a striking resembalance to the lashing I took when I posted that on conditioning rides I often let my Arab trot for the first few miles rather than force her to walk because she HATES walking. It's easier for both of us if I let her get it all out of her system, and then ask for the walk. Sure she "will" walk if I force the issue but she's not happy about it, and it's just more heartache for me by forcing the issue. She's a 5 year old super fit endurance horse who wants to GO. I was vehemently chastised for skipping steps, allowing holes in my training, encouraging bad manners, etc.

                              But on another thread when somebody else does it, it's just fine. It's ok for a top rider to blow off the halt because - gee, I don't want to piss off my super hot horse. Geeze, don't ya love the internet??

                              (Just so you know the rest of the story, I started her on magnesium and raspberry leaves and most of that nervous energy has fizzled away. I now begin all my rides at the walk and only ask for the trot when I'm well away from home. Amazing what a couple supplements can do for a horse.)

                                She would have never even made the team, not with Klaus as coach. And not with the open-to-the-public warm-ups at the qualifiers here.

                                Even Klaus openly critizes her in a dvd available at the tack stores, entitled "working towards success." Something about not a role model...

                                  From day one the horse could halt. So what? He is doing EXACTLY as he was trained when not halting.

                                    Every time you ride, your are either teaching or un-teaching your horse.
