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!

    OMG... I was looking for that video and couldn't find it. I wish I were brave enough to try this training method and see if it creates a piaffe. I suspect I'd be launched into the next county instead. That horse is a saint.

      Lordy, it's been years since I've seen the "monkey humping a football" video, that poor animal - it's a saint not to have killed him. Is he doing it in a halter, something odd is being hauled into the horses eye during the humping procedure ... I guess that makes it even more FEI trained. #horsesismypassion

          Training GP and airs bitless is the epitome of PeRfEcT tRAiNiNg. Anyone not "in the know" is garbage and can't ride,

              I wish somebody would post the video in the comments on his FB page and on DH so all their “super fans” could benefit from his “expertise.” I would but I’m blocked from both lol.

                Done.

                Comment


                  Two things.

                  I don’t think “anyone from England” is aware of him or really cares what he says about Charlotte and Carl (as he alludes to in his posts). He Is just not that important, nor does he have what it takes to have international credibility. However, that video (thank you for the entertainment) would be useful in teaching “how not to ride” dressage, worldwide.

                  Secondly, blacking out the Canadian flag on the saddle pad of Evi Strasser’s horse (Renaissance Tyme, the grey ridden by CDJ at a masterclass in Caledon about a year ago) is disrespectful treatment of another nation’s emblem. No, I am not offended. How can I be. it is after all NP 🙄🙄. He is too redneck to get stuff like that. But it shows how simple-minded he really is...to not be in tune with what is appropriate in respect of other countries and the degree to which his blog/posts would be an embarrassment if posted to credible sites (not DH because SW is in full support of bashing her countrymen (women) and her hometown so she can whine about how she is being bullied...Poor thing).

                  Some grown-up should take Nicky’s sharpies away from him. . The world would be a better place.

                  Now to get ahead of the pending snow storm and ride my pony.

                      Little late to the party there Nicko. Also a little big and fat for 15. Same old inability to ride then as now. Plus you're the one who was so proud of this you posted it.2REPLY

                      How many times are my comments going to get deleted? This hacked video is no where near what the end product looked like. I’d be happy to show pictures and give REAL info to any who asks. This horse was my Grand Prix horse and this video was hacked from my account. It was when we were still learning. So desperate are the cyberbullies who can’t ride, to post a hacked video and mislead people.

                      I never posted this. I’m not “fat” at 15 either, I was wearing a large jacket. But you losers can cyberbully all you want but there is nothing you can do about the fact that I can ride any of your horses better then any of you. There is nothing you can do about the loads of great reviews on my page either. Just think, if you jack wagons put as much effort into your riding as you do harassing me, you might actually be able to ride someday.

                        Nah, just really really interested in seeing how he explains his training method or if he comes after me. That won't work, I have thicker skin than a rhino.

                          If you dare, also leave it in the comments to the post of his that DH shares. All her little PETA-loving followers who now think he’s some kind of expert might enjoy it

                              It was her share of his “dressage is dying” post. Still there - was a while back before Laura Graves announced Diddy’s retirement.

                              I went to look for the video on NPs page and looks like he already deleted the comments and replaced them with a BS post about Chevy

                              Comment


                                He's re-posted the Chevy blog story on his FB today. I really want to post a link to the video (the music makes it extra hilarious) but I don't know how. Of course he'll delete it but someone savvy could do it and screenshot -

                                  Sad that he has to delete everything others say just to maintain his world of delusion.

                                    Poor Nuno. Because of technology there is more film of him in late middle age. He is still a wonderful tactful rider but it's clear the years have taken their toll on his body.

                                    I have seen one short clip of him circa 1920. He sits like a bold young bullfighter and he is a gorgeous slim very young man.

                                    We are getting better these days at lifelong fitness but it still possible to find an older trainer who has put on weight and lost posture, especially in western world.

                                    That's not what they looked like when they were world champions.

                                      Hahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!! nick says "reins of silk" to describe how he doesn't understand contact. I knew another "trainer" who claimed her horses were so light at third and above that they didn't seek contact. I subsequently learned from great clinicians how B.S. this was.

                                      Scribbler, the horses of today are not like the horses of 100 years ago.
