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!

    Well...I didn't. Pretty cool video.

    I posted this in the off course section but it has had essentially no views -so as I think it might be more appropriate for this forum.

            That made me laugh.

            The video was very cool and he looks to know what he is doing. He has very nice Andalusians, and he is a good rider.

              Once I watched this, I had to go google him more closely...all I could find about his Andalusians is that he would occasionally use them in his xmas specials, that he bred them/had a farm in the Sierra foothills over a period of many years.

              Actually, he didn't drink hardly at all-it was part of his act.
              He did die of lung cancer and he did smoke.
              He died in 1995. Born in 1917
              Looking at the clothes and his age (55 maybe in the video), i am estimating that this must have been filmed in the early 1970s). I don't know anyone who wore a helmet in the 1970s!

                This video was taken long before the nanny state kicked in. We didn't wear helmets back then. And almost no western riders or Spanish riders wear helmets -- even today.

                I always liked Dean Martin... had no idea he was into horses. I wonder what happened to his stock....

                  Agree, Kyzteke. Would be nice to know what happened to them after he passed. Hard to believe it's been so long now.

                  Beautiful man, beautiful voice.

                    Thank you for posting this video; what a treat!!!. Arthur and I watched it several times this morning. I’m a huge fan of Dean Martin, have been since I was a little girl. I love his unique voice and admire his talent. I had no idea that he had horses. What I love from the video is that he clearly loved his horses and was hands-on involved with them as a breeder and trainer, rather than just writing checks so that others did it all for him. The tenderness he has for his foals and the stallions really resonates with me, it is the same feeling we have for the horses we own and breed.

                      I did not know this either - thanks for sharing.

                      ditto the fact that he was not a drunk. just the act. so you'all can relax. Jack Benny may not have been a miser, Don Rickles could be just a nice guy. Now Ozzie Osborne - he's been there done that.
                      Don't let anyone tell you that your ideas or dreams are foolish. There is a millionaire walking around who invented the pool noodle.

                        OMG! Dean.

                        He and I could have made beautiful music together and then ridden off into the sunset but NOOOO he had to go and marry what's her name.

                        His son was also gorgeous and Dean Martin nearly came undone when he died.

                          I was thinking the EXACT same thing! I dont remember ever knowing this about him, but he obviously had a base of knowledge. I'm sure when he died that they were well provided for...Lovely horses before they became more well known and popular in US.
                          We don't get less brave; we get a bigger sense of self-preservation........

                                Wow, that was really fun to see! He was a nice rider, too.

                                  He was in a lot of westerns

                                  and he could ride the hair off a horse. Some of the actors were bouncing all around...not Dean. He was a great horseman and easy on the eyes and ears too

                                        The folks on the E-Iberiean yahoo group think the horses belonged to Garrison ranch, not Dean Martin. Apparently they were show biz friends.
