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.

  • Anky reserve reining champion in Sweden

    On her way to competing in two disciplines at WEG. I wonder if this has ever been done before.

    how many dressge riders can Holland bring to WEG? Wouldn't it be weird if Anky qualified for reining but NOT dressage?

      I love all the hooting and cheering. Imagine that during a dressage test!

        She's pretty good! I wonder if she bought a made reining horse of if she did some of the training herself?

        I know she has started some sort of weird trend... there was a lady that moved to my home area from Frankfurt Germany and bought a reining horse (a horse that was apparently pretty decent at reining) but she proceeded to try to teach him dressage instead. Naturally, he thought the whole concept of contact was quite odd and she couldn't understand why he wouldn't take contact well. Subsequently, he wound up for sale. Not sure for what discipline though as I imagine he was slightly confused.

          I enjoy the things she's saying - I agree that the basics are the same between reining and dressage. Obviously mouth contact isn't, but that just means you use your seat more in reining, in the same way you would in dressage. Too many people have an us vs. them attitude among whatever their discipline is and all others, so I think the crossover is pretty neat.

          And I love the horse - palomino quarter horses are my weakness.

          n2dressage - I've seen some horses easily able to make that conversion, where others definitely do get confused. Before I bought my OTTB I would have loved to get a reining-type horse who was willing to accept contact, but it does take a special horse. I think in past articles she was working with a top reining trainer who was having her try different horses who were already made horses?

            a made and talented horse. As in dressage , simply being able to do the pattern in reining isn't enough,movement, style and way of going matter.
            Top horses or horses with FEI potential are every bit as expensive as any other disipline. Since reining is more recent to FEI competition some countrys dont have riders yet or may only have one,(like Ireland)
            An individual can qualify for WEG in reining even if their country can't field a whole team. The score requirements are posted and you must achieve/qualify that score at 2 different shows. Sweden will have a full team
            Sweden has had riders and some good trainer for a while, I remember people comming over to shop for reiners more than 10 years ago. Almost 20 years ago,I remember a guy from Italy comming over to buy 40 quarterhorses between the ages of 3 and 9, he had a purse full of cash, it was a long week. Italy has a darn good team now and also a very good Quarterhorse show circuit .
            I can explain it TO you,but I can't understand it FOR you

                I'd like to see her hop off at the end of a test on Salinero, drop the bit for inspection, rebridle and walk out of the arena. Wonder if she's getting any insights from this ...

                  This ride was much better than the last I saw her do. However, she could not beat our top reiners yet. Her slow circles were four-beating. Her stops are not straight. Her slides are still too much on the forehand.

                  Part of the trouble that she had in dressage was the canter work, though she was given good scores anyway. But, if you watch her tempiis, you will see the same lack of her seat down in the saddle that is creating the problems in the reining. She still is relying too much on the bit, and not enough off her seat yet. If she continues to progress in reining, I think it will greatly help her dressage riding.

                    She needs to learn to do patterns without a bridle, so she realizes how much she is still a hand rider.
                    Most well trained higher level reiners will do what you ask without a bridle, they just will not keep being correct if you do it too much.
                    But, to learn to use your seat and legs correctly, basic reining lessons are hours of crossed arms, "lopin", stopping and doing all that off your seat and legs.

                    It would be great if she could participate in both disciplines at the top, even if she doesn't win it all.

                      I'm jealous . . . jealous of her energy to ride two disciplines at a very high level, not to mention her family,farm and business ventures. Go Anky!

                        She looked pretty good in a non-pro way. She needs to make her cues less obvious, especially in her transitions, and she needs to let her horse finish his stop before attempting the rollback-he looked like he could have kept going quite some distance in the vid I saw.

                        All in all a good run but just nitpicky things that will get her "minus one half" ed in the Big Reinings.

                          Agree...she's a long way from beating our top non-pros, too.

                          She HAS come a long way, though. I see her biggest fault being she just can't let go. A top horse will do all those moves on a loose rein. She has a hold of that horse most of the time. And, use the corners to build your speed gradually for the runs. She comes out of the corner and guns it.

                          Nice horse...very patient with her mistakes.

                            And what is it with the black boots on the horse? Is it to match her outfit? I realize you want to show off the horse's legs in the spins, (or not) but that just looks bad. White would look better.

                            Okay, I'm just being snarky.

                              No question that this is a made horse who is schooled a LOT by a pro reiner. A LOT.

                              Don't get your panties in a wad, and I admire her for trying a new sport and all but if this wasn't Anky, would any of you seriously think this was a ride worth taking to the WORLD Equestrian Games? I'll have more respect for her if she doesn't.

                              Every step that horse took backwards is points off. Which he did in almost ever, if not every maneuver at the halt. Tail flicks in the changes? Points. The horse doing the second change early because he knew it was coming? Points. The choppy changes from fast to slow lope.Points. I could go on, but it really doesn't matter.

                              I think it's great that she's doing new stuff. Must be fun to play around with something new, but having seen the big names who should be at the WEG?

                              I really that she could go, if she wins, to rep[resent her country, but to me it would sort of be an "Eddy the Eagle" thing from the Olympics a few years back. Don't go just because you CAN. (Not saying that she is going, to my knowledge.)

                              Excuse yourself gracefully and then go when you are REALLY ready for it and kick everyone's butt, if you can..

                                    I don't know if the judging for WEG is somehow different than what I'm used to for reining... but I certainly don't think she seems ready to be competitive there.

                                    However, as it's a growing discipline there, and not huge with an international scene yet - I don't begrudge the countries who have no chance in dressage from competing just for the sake of being there, so wouldn't begrudge anyone for doing the same in reining. Just because the US has the most history of it - I think if other countries start getting the international experience, given the horsemanship known in other countries, they can quickly compete. Hopefully they'll have horses who aren't broken down by competing too young and make older, experienced horses more worth having in the eyes of the public.

                                        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.
