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 Blume Farm, that's what happens when you buy your way to the top, Geez. I to have a fancy horse on the cheap. I bought her Elite dam at a dispersal auction and bought the breeding from the stallion service auction and got really lucky as she took on the first try and had a very routine pregnancy. I was very blessed to have a wonderful foal who aside from being Grey is as I "ordered" alas I too have bought my way to the winner's circle, (well I would if I actually won anything ;-) )

          I am always amazed at the assumption of others. Of course your hard work and dedication couldn't have gotten you there! You have a lovely mare, but I am sure you don't need little ole me to tell you that.

            Isabell Werth and Satchmo - at home, in a halter (and bareback - that is possible when you have a steady leg and a good seat), doing the GP moves. No yanking on the halter, no monkey humping - THIS is what a talented and gifted rider looks like. Ms. Werth put in the WORK needed to get to this level.
            Pure. CLASS.

                Wow, all I did was go grocery shopping in this frigid weather to come back to this! First off, I am a struggling AA rider. Have never claimed anything more and fully admit I would have no place calling myself a professional rider/ trainer,
                or even breeder for that matter.

                Secondly, I take it as a HUGE compliment that he feels a mare I bred, raised, and trained with the help of my trainer was one that I went overseas and bought with a lot of $$. I did go overseas and buy her mother for $10K many, many years ago and was able to do that purchase because I had saved exactly $10k to purchase my dream horse. My father paid for my birthday trip overseas to go horse shopping and paid for her airfare to the US, which was MUCH cheaper in those days. I was lucky in getting a massive break on quarantine costs as I was a vet student at the time and worked at the quarantine facility. I bred my mare in Germany before import and that resulting foal is Roseblume, my riding mare.

                Thirdly, believe me I have heard from my trainer more times than I would like to recount "HEELS DOWN" and "LET GO". I am sure my mare feels that way as well In that picture I am starting a medium canter which I had been getting 6s on and we were certainly capable of higher scores. However, I always felt like I was flying but the video proved the judges right in "could be more" "needs more" "conservative". In my head though I always felt like the kid in the black stallion movie galloping on the beach!! In this picture I said to myself "go for it"!!!! And I did, then said "holy shit" and hung on for dear life. Either way I love the picture as it shows progress for my lovely mare and I.

                In an odd way I am flattered that he stole my picture. Is that weird or what?? In no way do I want to be associated with this man, but it is so funny to me that he stole my picture.

                Now off to go ride my high dollar mare. I will not tell her anyone said that about her as she has a big enough ego as it is
                You are awesome and I want to be your new best friend.

                love it, love the photo, love the Holy Shit.

                rock on, Blume.

                        He was banned from several, but if I'm the admin with the tagged no-advertising policy at the top of the page he was removed for violating the no-advertising policy and banned for being abusive to members who
                        (politely) disagreed with his pro-rollkur stance. His abusive personal attacks and threats toward me came after his banning, and I reported him to facebook. I believe I am part of the reason his facebook page now has the number 5 in the url.

However, I have seen GP trainers who make it on very talented and forgiving horses who manage despite lack of educated seats. Not internationally, but locally it happens. If he were not so quick to be abusive to others and not a flat out liar with the claims which have been disproved on this thread I wouldn't much care what he did, and be willing to discuss how one improves the seat with misguided individuals who think he's great. However, I do have a big issue with his abuse and attacks on strangers on the web. I would not let someone with a temper like that near my horses.

                                  • Nick Peronace The things that they are saying are absolutely falsifications and half truths. If anyone has any questions you can always contact me here on facebook in a PM,, and I will be happy to answer.
                                    Anyone who has ever worked with me has gotten positive results, and the critics who choose to bash my reputation have never worked with me! In fact I have said over and over again that I will work with anyone with any horse anywhere.

                                    I also want it noted that I'm currently suing this publication for the lies and twisted half truths to meet their own agenda. I have sent numerous communications to the editors in charge asking them to delete this thread and Link, and as a result some of my students and future clinics have chosen to believe the slander and I have suffered financially!!
