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!

      You mean the horse he said was going to go FEI but also has no recognized show scores? Do you even understand how a horse reaches FEI level? Those are two photos that show nothing that demonstrates upper level skill.


      • Kelly/Nick--Stop. You're embarrassing yourself. There is nothing on the webpage that a training level rider wouldn't have--pictures on a horse.

        Ah. And just who is your mother? And how did she "work" with Klimke? Which one? Doing what?


        • Has anyone contacted the farm (Jentri Stables) that is at address listed on Nick's website? The Jentri website doesn't mention Nick at all.

            This Klimke. He moonlights at dressage when he's not the Budestag rep from Hamburg....

              Seriously - this is not the place to name drop. Many have trained with, work for, own horses for or just plain old know the trainers you keep dropping. This is not some forum of 13 yo pony clubbers. MANY of the folks here have trained their own horses to FEI and have the scores, videos etc to prove it. Anyone who has been on that journey would never trust anyone who claims to be self taught and has no validation that what you have self-taught fits the ideals of competitive or classical dressage. We ALL know people who say they ride 3rd level because their horse did a flying change once. As a previous poster said, this group has far more experience than either of you. Just go away - you are out of your league.

              Stick to your 4-H clinics. If you don't get anyone hurt, good luck to you.


              • Jeeze,
                I trained my (never shown) at home hack quite well, he had great changes ..."airs above ground" only occurred when he was green.

                I've read many, many, books!

                I have no competition record (of COURSE you are too important to actually compete...) and neither do you. I have no record because I have never competed in dressage. If only I had taken my at home hack to a schooling show, one time , the master I could claim to be!

                Get a grip on yourself Mr. Peronace. You are wasting everyone's time trying to convince people who know better, that you know what you're doing. Please, just give it up.

                Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries. Now go away, or I shall taunt you a second time..


                • I dont playing some of you for being skeptical simply because I do not compete. I did once, but was on an Appaloosa and after one schooling show at Grand Prix and scoring very low, I realized politics were against me and I became more focused on the art of dressage, not so obsessed with ribbons and trophies.
                  There's another board where you might find a better welcome and many others with similar mindset and experience. ('Ultimate' Dressage)

                  • Just because a small group or even a large group says a certain rock band has no talent or a movie is terrible does not make it true, it only makes it true to that particular group.
                    So, you're saying you should just be able to do your own thing and call it dressage?Those pesky marks and movement requirements set out by the FEI may get in your way, of course.

                    Your beliefs don't make you a better person, your behaviour does.

                        • Oh dear, self-delusion is not a pretty sight. Unfortunately there seems to be no way to prevent the less experienced becoming involved in feeding the delusion by entertaining this gentleman's fantasies of being a dressage master. Hopefully his dressage adventure will be curtailed when he actually gets to do a real clinic and people realise it is all ego and fantasy.


                          • I dunno. I'll save my outrage for actual abuse cases.

                            This is pretty mild stuff to warrant such a feeding frenzy.


                            • I just want to see a video - mostly of Nick riding (any horse, doesn't have to be Chevy), preferably a fairly current video, but one showing him giving a clinic would be interesting, too. I want to know what this "leading by silk reins" thing is all about. Where in IA is the clinic? I'm not too awfully far away to consider auditing....

                                • I would like to hear what he has to say about the rest of riding, like the basics! A lot of talk about fancy tricks that can be easily taught that he supposedly taught his Appy, but can you actually provide us with something that shows you riding a horse using it's back properly in a working trot? Canter? Walk even?

                                          One does feel a certain dismay, at the thought of those paying $100+ for his purported knowledge.
