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!

  • Linda Parelli: Bigger then Elvis?

    Considering Elvis' final years, and fondness for peanut-banana-bacon sangas, I hope they mean "bigger" as in "more famous" or "more influential" then Elvis... Maybe THAT is why the famous britches were ebay'ed... *g*

    Still... I think not.

    I had to laugh when this popped up in my mailbox this morning...


    Linda Parelli to Headline 2012 Horse & Soul World Tour

    Imagine a pitch-black arena filled with thousands of antsy spectators. Every one of you is standing up, breathing, waiting. As the music rises, it launches the 2012 Horse & Soul Parelli World Tour. Drumbeats fill your chest and the hair stands up on your arms. Out of the darkness bursts not a mustached cowboy, but a petite, blond woman with high black boots and dressage saddle. With a massive chestnut Hanoverian by her side, she sails across the arena waving to 4,000 cheering spectators and smiles.

    This is Pat’s better half. And this is her tour.

    Linda Parelli is a student and a seeker who has pushed her own horsemanship in order to be a conduit of inspiration for others. For the 2012 Horse & Soul Tour, she will harvest two decades of passionate devotion to natural horsemanship and pour it out on fans in eleven US cities.

    Perhaps because of her persistence, Linda Parelli is now widely considered one of horsemanship’s finest communicators. As the most dedicated student of the system that bears her husband’s name, Linda Parelli is celebrated for her intuitive coaching which she delivers with wit, compassion and kindness.

    "Linda is the hardest worker I know," said her husband Pat Parelli who will teach alongside her during the 2012 Horse & Soul Tour. "Her passion as an educator is reaching a fever pitch and I don’t think anyone has experienced even the tip of what she has to offer."

    Because of her dressage background and the diversity of her students, the 2012 Horse & Soul tour will encompass both English and Western disciplines. It will feature the now-famous Seven Games™ that are the foundation of the Parelli system. Tips for fool-proofing lead changes and instruction on Pat’s notion of Horsenality™, a concept which Linda developed and communicates with zeal, round out the weekend events.

    "Her work in horsenality, rider posture, contact and collection is pioneering a new frontier in horsemanship. These topics apply to any rider, regardless of discipline," Pat Parelli said.

    In perennial collaboration, Linda and her horses don’t just perform at tour stops, they captivate. Surprises are embraced and then sorted with the intelligence and precision available only to those who have spent long hours earning them. Watching Linda engage her dressage horses in an extended trot or in a series of flying lead changes, impels her students to come up higher; to work harder, to learn more, to grow.

    But best of all, those who know her will tell you, Linda Parelli is funny.

    At a demonstration once, Linda trotted past a capacity crowd on her Dutch Warmblood Remmer and, mildly annoyed with her bouncing sunglasses, took them off and winged them into the audience.

    "That wasn’t an Elvis thing," she said. "I want those back."

    The crowd laughed and cheered its approval for the woman many people in the horsemanship world consider, bigger than Elvis.

    But the beautiful thing about Linda Parelli is that no matter how big the venue or how bright the star, the relationship with the horse is always paramount.

    And that is the very essence of the 2012 Tour.

    Admission to the 2012 Horse & Soul Parelli World Tour is $25 in advance and includes admission for both days. Parelli Members can receive up to seven free tickets.

    Tickets are scheduled to go on sale in the Parelli Web Shop on October 20, 2011.

      Sound more like damage control for the Barney and the gray arabian's so "educational" videos.

      I am afraid all the pomp won't erase that from the minds of the ones that got to see all that bopping and clunking, before it was pulled out of the air.

                          Until I started hanging out on CoTH I didn't follow Parelli NH at all & find the whole Parelli games thing silly to say the least... What IS Linda's background in dressage? What level is she riding? Where is she showing? What makes her qualified to teach?

                              Forget WAZ - it's all LInda's ideas. SHE is a dressage guru now. Forget her lifelong abusive bungling, now SHE has the secret.

                                  Definitely need a puke icon. First of all, everyone knows the Parelli sheeples don't even ride their horses.

                                      She invented riding with contact! It's groundbreaking!11!! She has been perfecting contact for a whole year or so by now! If that doesn't qualify her as a $$$$ clinician, well, nothing will. She not only invented it, she's going so far as to share it with the entire world.

                                      Well at least that part of the world that is willing to open their purses.
