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!

  • Video of Horse Freakout, Anky riding?

    I tried looking on YouTube and couldn't find it. I'm looking for a video showing Anky's horse bolting during an awards ceremony. She couldn't stop him, he nearly ran through the band, and a police horse intervened to get them under control. Does anyone remember what show this was at and if there's a video out there?

    I am not trying to start an Anky bashing thread at all. A friend of mine was trying to tell me that this happened and I don't know if I believe her or not... I've only read one blog post about it (on a very negative site), but there was no links to news stories or videos.

    Thanks in advanced.

    I don't have a link to the video but it did happen.
    Did any of you happen to watch her clinic during the Dutch stallion show this year? I am curious as to how a Dutch speaking person would have interpreted her comments. I don't speak Dutch but a friend of mine thought she told the audience she has lost some confidence recently and was having a hard time continuing with the clinic.
    If it is true I found that to be very sad - I hope she can find it again.

      I saw a video of Anky being dumped by a horse who was freaking out a little. Ordinarily I don't take pleasure in another's misfortune and try to steer clear of schadenfreude, but it's nice to know that I'm not the only one who occasionally has a horse get a bad case of the ya-yas.

        Looks like more than a spook - the horse continued to buck after removing Anky.

          The incident the OP is talking about was at the World Equestrian Games, and definitely did happen - it was covered in several magazines, and I had friends who were there.

          Don't know if there is any video of it, however.

            I think in a couple of months, the accounts of these incidents will be so embroidered, and painted as so unique and rare (as if other horses don't do this constantly), that the horses of Anky's will have spontaneously exploded in a ball of flames after crashing into the police horses a la Independence Day movie, and disappeared from the face of the earth, shortly followed by the battered police horses, who will ALSO have exploded in a ball of flames, then a lady with a baby in her arms will have exploded into flames too. Let's see.

              Good for her for staying on as long as she did.. If she ever decides to retire from dressage she could have a career with the PBR..

                When I first saw this vid, I thought it was due to her training methods. But after reading Gunther Seidel's article talking about Aragon, it seems more of a common occurence with top level mounts.

                I do wonder if Anky will retire from showing and just teach or if she'll consider less volatile mounts.

                  What any horse could do that it's not that big of a deal..She's young why would she retire??

                    What amazes me is that someone could be lucky enough to be present at an Anky demo...

                    Yet instead of totally focusing on the ride and sucking in every piece of information they possibly can from this world champion, choose instead to waste their time waving a crappy cellphone camera around making a barely visible/audible video, probably totally annoying the people behind them, who got to watch their phone/arm instead of Anky.

                      Anky video

                      I don't think this video is the one of the bolting at the awards ceremony. I think this is the one that happened on a young horse many months later. The bolting was on Salinero and she left the arena and the horse and she were stopped by the mounted police. She didn't fall off in that incident.

                          Poor Anky, OMG it's like the flash of the camera or something set the horse off. But it had to be more than just that I'm sure that horse has seen flash photographs many times before. Unless this was a green new comer does anyone know the name of the horse she was riding. Was it one of her old vertarins or a greenie.

                          Either way , how scary. I was worried she was going to land on one of the fence posts at the end of the arena or even in the laps of the crowd, at least that would have been a soft landing.

                            I think she did a pretty darn good job staying on for as long as she did. I would have been off the first hop!!

                              The horse went OVER BY the police horses - like ALL horses do. It did NOT 'crash' into the police horses, for God's sake. If you need that sort of stuff, the movie Independence Day IS ON ALL DAY, on MOST cable tv channels!!

                              But that's not at all uncommon, and any horse that spurts forward or takes off ALWAYS aims for the nearest group of horses, unless it's totally nuts or going straight home. The police horses are there and are trained to handle the situations.

                              At boarding barns I've been at whenever there was a 'moment', every time a flea far*** basically, and believe me, the boarding barns looked like that video EVERY DAY, SEVERAL TIMES, all winter, only there were - well - however many horses there were in the ring at the time involved instead of just ONE horse - because people didn't come and ride their horses whenever it was cold - the horse ALWAYS wound up in the center of the ring, hanging out with eachother, in the 'Coffee Clatch Configuration', all head to head, squealing or just arching their necks and acting like twits til someone caught them...meanwhile, riders scattered like tiddly winks all over, draped over the kickboards, sobbing....I think Anky handled it a little better, ROFLMAO!!!!

                                Yeah, I found that one. Looks like it was at a clinic. That isn't what my riding buddy was talking about. She was refering to an awards ceremony. Someone PM-ed me and said it was at Achen. Was it last year then? 2007?

                                    Like I said earlier, the episode where Salinero bolted during the awards ceremony and was stopped by the mounted police was at the World Equestrian Games in Aachen in 2006.

                                    Go here, to the very bottom of the page, and see a report and a picture of the bolting incident.

                                      slc, what preciscly do you gain by mocking folks???? If we choose to discuss something that we have an opinion on why should you feel so inclined to freak out? We can beat a dead horse if we choose, if you don't like it don't read it . . .don't comment on it, and certainly don't mock. It is simply not polite.

                                      You don't seem to read what other folks even post, you assume that everyone is flaming Anky. I haven't seen any of that at all. Yet you feel it is your responsibilitly or freakin mission in life to correct us at all times.

                                      You know what slc, I stopped posting regularly a long time ago due to your vicious crap. I hope I get banned from this board just so I no longer am drawn to the trainwreck of you and your garbage. Give it a freakin rest will ya. No one gives a furry little rats behind what you think, got it????? GOOD!

                                        I don't see anyone crapping on Anky but some people hallucinate these things just so they can scream at people.
