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!

  • Quote from Pat Parelli regarding WAZ

    'We've run into a grand master of dressage. A master of lightness and politeness. His name is Walter Zettl and he's a wonderful, gentle old man. And he only teaches two people in the world. He's made a commitment for the rest of his life to only teach Pat and Linda. Because he's searched all over the world and he's never found--he's finally found what he was looking for. Someone who uses lightness and politeness, and love, language, leadership. He'd been looking for it and he'd been doing it, but he'd never found a kindred situation. And this man knows what it takes to have the lighteness and politeness. He doesn't know too much about our methodology--or didn't--but now he does because he's been studying it like crazy...'


    This kind of floors me.

    It has been rumored in Parelli land for months but this was actually spoken on RFD last night...read it on another forum.

    I actually could never believe it...and now I guess it is true.

    Makes me kind of sad...but maybe WAZ's age and health were just limiting him?

    If that IS the case, perhaps this is some kind of 'retirement' arrangement that will allow WAZ to do what he loves and not have to travel?

    It is no secret that I enjoy much of the Parelli program but this really confuses me.

    Perhaps someone 'in the know' could shed some light?

    Why don't you wait to see what WAZ does!
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    Remember the horse does all the work, we just sit there and look pretty.

        What?????

        This is almost funny, except that some people will believe it....Not to mention the fact that WAZ is giving a clinic next week and the week after at my friend's house, with some people that he has been teaching for over 20 years...And will continue to do so. So, HOGWASH! I'm starting the think PP has some sort of GOD complex going on.

          OMG.

          I don't know how PP sits on a horse with those cojones.

          Unfortunately, WAZ is too much of a gentleman to tell him what to do with that ridiculous statement.
          Patience pays.

                I watched this last night as well and was laughing my butt off.

                Oh, but you left out the part where he told his followers that "Did you know that the world's greatest dressage rider couldn't even walk her horse into the awards ceremony? Her horse ran away with her and it took 6 policemen with baracades to stop her horse." And of course you hear everyone laughing.

                I guess Mr. Parelli has NEVER in his life had a horse take off with him. Yeah, right.

                That's when he launched into Mr. Zettl and how there are only 2 people Mr. Zettl is willing to teach...Pat and Linda Parelli because Mr. Zettl appreciates lightness and is taking time to really study the Parelli Program.

                And would someone teach Patti how to freakin pronouce Dressage???? If he says DRESS AGE One more time, I'm going to pull my hair out.

                And yes, I admit it, I watch his show to just to hear the stupid things come out of his mouth.

                  Oh and my take on WAZ......they probably have given him a huge amount of money to teach them so they can throw his name around.

                  I wish Patti would just shut up and do his demonstrations instead of bashing DRESS AGE every chance he gets.

                  This demo was in Australia and they were in the Sydney Olympics DRESS AGE warm up arena.

                    I may have respected SOME of this guys techniques but MAN I just can't get over wondering how he can talk with all that $hit constantly spewing out of his mouth.

                    Why doesn't anyone PUBLICLY call him out on this crap?

                          I can't BELIEVE you guys are actually laughing at them!!!!

                          Why did you KNOW that they are able to do upper level dressage moves all while using twisty ties on the reins????

                          I saw the same show last night, with the lame gelding running around the arena.

                          Also - for the OP, and others who watched it - did you catch where he talked about being floored when a GP rider got run away with at a big awards ceremony, and had to have several police help her stop her horse, because she couldn't control it?

                            I agree though - he is the FIRST cowboy I have ever heard pronounce Dressage, DRES-sage.

                                Sadly, it does nothing for WAZ's name to permit statements like that to go unchallenged. And if it is true, well, I guess that is very sad too.

                                      I'm not sure how to get the public to give Pat et al a huge raspberry, but it sure would be nice to have the thousands of riders who have had WAZ teach them get together and take a big picture of everyone with their raspberry ready to go. I'd say flip him a bird or two also! What a piece of work Parelli is. GAWD!

                                        I must be dreaming when I saw WAZ taught at Troika last year.
                                        By a fluke I happened to see the last ten minutes or so of PP on RFD last night as I sorted through 1099's and muttered curses at the IRS.

                                        Heard the words emanate from PP's mouth best I can tell word for word as transcribed here.

                                        Was so astonished that I stopped sorting the bloody tax documents, went to the WAZ website and saw the very same clinic schedule posted here. Scratched my head.

                                        PP seemed very full of himself last night as he walked around the ring being followed by the horse.

                                        Who knows what to make of it. There are some PP-related things posted on the WAZ website, so whether there's the identified fire or not, there's definitely smoke.

                                        For my part, the prospect of PP in breeches would be shock enough.
