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!

    I hope she (the victim) will be ok. Looks like from FB page that she was gathering evidence the last two weeks.

    Really, really sad situation.

      I reported both Dressage Hub and Susan Wachovich. I don't care what happened, promoting violence with the recent mass shootings is reprehensible.

        I got redirected here from the GM page.

        This is very crazy. And sad. Plenty of people have had a bad falling out with trainers at the end of a business relationship. Just move your horses and pay 30 days. Quickly and quietly. And trainers should let disgruntled clients leave.

        This sort of craziness and gunshots through the chest? It’s not worth it...

          Has there been any confirmation that Michael Barisone was the shooter?

            I hope she pulls, through. From my general understanding - very general - there was a client/trainer tension. So, I cannot for the life of me, imagine why a gun would at all be necessary during any confrontation over training horses...

            The girl was shot in the heart, twice. I am a relatively firm believer, that if you pick up a gun, it is not an idle threat, you are shooting to kill. If I operate from my POV, I am trying to fathom what on earth went down. Is anyone familiar with her? Her FB page says she has 5 international horses in training and her profile pic has her with, Isabell Werth; is she some big-time rider?
            She is not a big time rider - FB page indicates that she got her Bronze medal earlier this year, and is no showing 4th level. At the time of completing the medal, there were thanks to Barisone Dressage. She does say something in a recent post like "never become a woman of unlimited resources" So yes, wealthy client with a bunch of horses in training.

            What a bizarre story. Hope she pulls thru.

              This is absolutely bananas. What did he think was going to happen?!

              "This client is a problem, let me shoot her." Then what? Is a safe sport investigation really worse that jail? Unbelievable.

                I’ve heard from a reliable source that the victim made it through the night.
                From now on, ponyfixer, i'll include foot note references.

                  Agree with this...What is even more odd is that client on FB indicates that she was being bullied and was on a campaign to ruin him. Some decidedly strong posts. BUT she is an adult, and even a safesport smack for bullying in this case wouldn't probably warrant a suspension. The whole story is not yet known, but if he shot her, almost certainly jail time.

                    A couple earlier posts here including someone local to the farm indicate that he was taken into custody. But not verified by police or other official source so far as I know.

                        While I agree with this and it was my first thought, I just feel the need to point out (not excuse) mental illness as part of (perhaps) some of the recent issues that have cropped up regarding SS.

                        On the hunter thread about RG, SS was blamed for his suicide, not mental illness. Now it is being implied SS (not by you, q uoting this b/c I liked the post) or surrounding issues were in the mix. Let's not forget personal culpability and/or mental illness.

                        Some of these things may have well transpired without SS. It is like the person who gets a restraining order out against someone and then gets shot by them anyway- they were afraid for some reason and something terrible happened. Chicken or the egg.

                        It is crazy and sad times we live in.

                              Such a tragic mess. I suspect there is a lot more going on here - not that anything warrants this level of violence. I believe the woman and her fiance were living on the property - in addition to keeping the horses in training.

                                I mean, this is just so.....disturbing. On the one hand, my initial reaction after perusing the victim's FB was, "Wow, she should not have put any of that out there in public!" On the other hand, I do not want to shame a victim in any way, shape or form. Nothing anyone says warrants being physically assaulted, especially being shot.

                                I really, really hope she recovers

                                  I read about this early this morning and some of the comments on the DH thread noted posts by the victim about having 2 guns with hollow point bullets 2 days before the incident. Also that the trainer sustained injuries during the incident. The whole thing sounds crazy, but I would like more info before jumping to any conclusion that he just shot her because of a SS threat...

                                    The more recent posts on the victims fb aren't about her having guns, she says she's being threated with being shot days before she gets shot.
                                    Let me apologize in advance.

                                          Just because you own guns or discuss them does not mean you go around shooting people. I am a gun aficionados also and I would never shoot anyone unless it was in self defense.
