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!

  • What proper warm up should look like! Reiner Klimke Biotop Aachen

    Here is a lovely video of Reiner Klimke warming up Biotop at Aachen in a snaffle. What true dressage training should look like Where has the sport gone?

      thank you for posting this link. What an amazing warm up, what a super quality horse. Simple half halts by a true genius, raising the front end and the horse starts to dance!

        Amazing how he manages to get that quality of work out of the horse without ripping its face around with the whole weight of his torso and yanking his arm back to his armpit.

          I am not a dressage rider (nor do I aspire to be one) but I have to say that I would rather watch something like this than anything I've seen coming from WEG so far. Granted, I'm only watching highlights of WEG so may have missed a pair that has that same relaxed beautiful flowing feel, but I'd be surprised.

          Wish that people were still riding that way.

            Well put. If I were seeing more rides like this winning in dressage today, I wouldn't be walking away from it.

              That's a schooling ride, not a warm up for a test. When he was warming up for the test he was kicking the horse really hard with spurs, because he 'thought' it hadn't halted square (it had)
              I like him very much, but it isn't fair to compare a schooling ride with warming up for a big competition test. Even Klimke sometimes gave 'one in the gob, two in the guts'

                Raff,

                The photos coming out of Adelinde Cornelissen were from the day before during one of HER "schooling rides", I am sorry there is NO comparison.

                  Not a dressage rider either, but that was beautiful to watch. I aspire to ride that well some day! (A horse of that caliber wouldn't hurt either )

                    Oh, I see. The term 'Warm Up' is usually used to describe preparing for a test.

                              I am a little confused by the "schooling ride" v. "warm up" distinction.

                              First of all, if this is the 'schooling ride' on video, do we have video evidence that he was kicking the bejeezus out of the horse for the "real" warm up or is this just an assumption? On what basis are you informing us that for the "real" warm up he "was kicking this horse really hard?"

                              Secondly, are we meant to believe it is somehow a PREREQUISITE to competition to warmup with "one in the gob, two in the guts?"
                              Or may it actually be possible to warmup pleasantly as shown in the video?
                              Have we come to the point where we don't think it is even POSSIBLE to warm up for a big competition in a pleasant and relaxed manner???

                              Thirdly, the pictures do not show "one in the gob, two in the guts." They show an endless repetition of "one in the gob" and several more in the guts to go with them.
                              Even if this horse did get one little moment from Klimke, that is still different, imo, from what is going on in the latest warmup photos.

                                I am sorry if I have confused everyone with the title. I should have just put "This is what dressage should look like."

                                  Calm down, RK is on video warming up for a test at Aachen, Carol Lavell (sp?) narrating.If you're interested enough you could probably find it.He got it wrong and was unfair to the horse, it happens.I was just mentioning it because it demonstrated that,even for the best, riding is not all rainbows and butterflies.
                                  As for some agenda re photos etc, I was not aware of, or commenting on that.

                                      How very interesting.

                                      raff:

                                      I have done an extensive search and cannot for the life of me find the video of Reiner giving his horse "one in the gob, and two in the gut" you are referring to.

                                      You also stated, "When he was warming up for the test he was kicking the horse really hard with spurs, because he 'thought' it hadn't halted square (it had)."

                                      I really would like to see this video for myself because after having worked extensively with Willy Schultheis, I find it extremely difficult to believe that Reiner Klimke of all riders would not be able to actually feel if his horse was square or not. I am sorry to be such a dunce but would you be so kind and post that video for me. Thanks for any assistance you might offer.
