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.

        OMG!!

        Once was riding (was single then) with a cutie putitie (sp) and He insisted on bringing beer. Well, I had one of those fake hair attachments to give the look of long hair. About 3 hours into the ride, I was WASTED!!!! I start to giggle and every thing EVERYTHING is FUNNY at this point. Well, I look ahead to the young man as the trail got pretty narrow and he was holding his beer in his left hand. All the sudden his horse takes off!! So, mine does too! It was through this wash with low hanging branches. Well, I'm busting a gut laughing sooooooooooooo hard because I was watching him lean totally to the left, with his beer as a balancing tool! LOL BUSTING talking about it. Then a he regains his seat, to have to duck for a branch, he ducks, weaves, still holding his beer perfect, I was laughing so hard that my bra broke?? Yep, it was one of those lacy numbers, it just pops! Well, that was amuzing and I could hardly take it, then not able to breath, I almost whack the branch that I saw him duck and weave---but it catchs my sexy hair piece!!! LOL I had to yell to stop and gather up my hair. lol We both just had a blast---laughed about it the whole rest of the way home.

          I might possibly be convinced to admit to a certain episode involving a few bottles of wine and a round of bareback broomstick polo. 0:-). I had some interesting bruises the next day.

            I'm just lurking buuuttt.. bareback broomstick polo? sounds like fun.. but then again I'm the wild child that chained a lawn mower to a fourwheeler and managed to flip it at 35+ mph and break no bones

              I'm interrested in bareback broomstick polo also!! I usually ride first, wine later... seems to be a nightly affair in the cold A few weeks ago I planned on just turning my guy out in the indoor for a while to give him the night off, and ended up (3 shared bottles later) bareback with no halter or anything I stayed on miraculously and the pony just shook his head at his crazy mommy

                Not ME getting drunk on horseback, but I once went on a very fun "winery trail ride" where you brought your own horse and we rode as a big group from winery to winery, and tied our horses outside while we went in. I remember the people at Wente telling us to tie our horses to the rows of vines, but not to let them eat them. Yeah, right. OK, horsie--don't eat the big green, tasty plant in front of you while I'm gone. Good boy! I think we went to four different wineries, with tastings at each. One of them had a big basket of carrots set out for the horses. Some people tasted a little too much, apparently, because the ride back after the last winery was ... interesting. Lots of semi-in-control-riders on semi-in-control-horses. *rolling eyes*

                I've also enjoyed a little peppermint schnapps on full-moon trail rides in the winter, but I'm not much of a drinker anyway, and I'm a lightweight on top of that.

                One of my horses is extremely enthusiastic about beer, though, and will drink it from the bottle.

                  Broomstick polo is great fun . We play sort of low key... bareback with halters or hackamores and at low speed (if you ever sat on my spiney TB bareback you would understand, lol). Anyway, you take brooms and a beach ball. Set up cones or something on each end of the arena or field. Then you have to sweep the ball in to the goal. It is much harder than it sounds, because beach balls do not always cooperate

                  P.S. the first time I played this, I was 12... alcohol is not necessary . I was also the kid jousting with my dressage whip 0:-)

                    The closest I come is buzzy chores... when I've had one too many (which, sadly, usually means TWO these days since I'm poor *and* live on a farm, so it's a rare occasion... at any rate... ) and head out for night mash.

                    But I also learned the very, very hard way that guiding Dudes on trailrides for 7 or 8 hours is best done WITHOUT the hangover. One and only one time in my life I was hung over. It was TORTURE. My stomach churns and head aches just remembering. UG. (and in retrospect, I'm sure the Director knew, because I was assigned Skippy that day. A very big, very kind, but gaits-like-a-jackhammer buckskin gelding. )

                    The one that does make me almost cry though, was my first Combined Event since childhood. Pintopony and I practiced for months. It was this wonderful kind of coming together where one friend sent up a protective vest just in time-that miraculously fit, we were using a saddle another friend had sent up for the program... just this really amazing thing going on. Was going to be a 4 or 5 hour drive. I was suitably terrified. Not of getting hurt, or anything, mostly that they had fancy, painted jumps and wings and such, and we have interesting but rustic stuff to practice.

                    The night before was a HOWLING storm. It is mid-October which can be damnably chilly up here--especially because you're not used to it yet. Alarm goes off at 0300. <yawn> I make a big pot of coffee, put it in the big thermos. And since I know I'm going to be there for many, many hours before having to drive home, I throw in some Baileys. And then I throw in some more. I finish packing up everything... taste the java--throw in just a wee bit more. Smells heavenly--though you can pretty much get toasted just SMELLING the coffee.

                    Last trip out to the truck, pony's already loaded... and I fall down the back porch stairs. Four steps. Flat on my back and hard. Very hard. To the point I was not sure how bad I was hurt. Just the wind knocked out, and I'm SURE I won't be able to move later, but nothing appears broken. I go to pick up the stuff I dropped... including the thermos... and the glass liner had shattered. THEN I cried. All that lovely coffee... ruined.... WAAAAAAHHHHHH.

                    Now, if I'd thought of it at the time, I might have strained it through a paper towel or coffee filter. Alas.. hindsight.

                    So that was the drunk that wasn't.

                    Himself performed admirably. One display of airs in the trailer parking area... after that he was a saint, and we did NOT get eliminated in stadium. It ended up being one of the most fabulous memories of my life.

                    (p.s. I've lost about 75 lbs since that photo... he was jumping the wings, (obviously) not the crossrails, and I was waaaaay left... and laughing out loud. )

                      Sounds like someones wishing they made a bad porno.

                      I think the title of this thread should be "getting drunk and posting? Anybody doing it?"
                      Airborne? Oh. Yes, he can take a joke. Once. After that, the joke's on you.

                        Hey, I thought that too but wasn't gonna say it! I thought geeze, this sounds like the beginning of a cheap/cheesy porno flick. Well...not that I've seen one or anything....

                          I'm a moderate drinker on the trails... I keep a Nalgene in my horn bags that 1/2 Razz Rum and 1/2 Sprite.... I sip the whole ride... I like a nice relaxing buzz, not stupid and crazy..

                          I do, on occasion, like to enjoy a few beers on the trail too... Again it's never to extreem and if I feel too happy, I'll stop until I'm more clear headed...

                          I do agree that the ones that get rowdy drunk and whoop and holler w their horses.. now that's not cool... especially to the horses

                          I think everything in moderation is the key
                          All horses can go barefoot, but not all owners can - words of wisdom!

I heard some ruckus behind me, and turned around to see 3 people galloping full out, straight up my hind end. I got off to the side, and kept my horse under control as they galloped past, and around the next bend. What the hell was that??? I picked up the trot again and caught up with them a mile or so later. They were drunk off their arses, each with a beer, being stupid, and trying to get me to race as I walked past them. Judging from their horrible looking horses, very overweight selves, feet shoved through the stirrups, and saddle bags bulging with 6-packs, they were redneck couch jockeys out for an afternoon of drunken fun.
                            You always have the most interesting stories.

                            I've been known to have a beer (or two) before going into the show ring. I don't know that it hurt our performance, and it might have helped. I've also had a few with lunch or dinner on multi-day trail rides and then gone out for a spin. Neither my companions nor my horse minded.


                            Yeah, there was the time my friend and I were being stupid and I rode her horse backwards, in my pjs in the indoor ring until he bucked me off and we laughed till we cried. (no alcohol though)
                            No excuse either.

                              Having a beer or two isn't the same as getting DRUNK, which is what the OP was talking about. Unless a beer or two means your drunk.

                                Nope never gotten fall down, getting sick DRUNK on horse back. Although when we are finished with our large group rides 5-10 people/horses we usually cook food, bring food, bring drinks alch/non alch and hang out for 2-3 hours after our 4-5 hour rides...so usually we have the whole day out there and get home pretty late. But NONE of us have ever gotten drunk and gone out and about riding.

                                One other time I have a good friend who raises show driving perchs. We had been driving all day long on the roads etc. We stopped at a small beach area/boat launch and unharnessed the horse, and then we went swimming with him in the water and he had a blast. Everyone was cooled off re-harrnessed and by that time it was getting dark/dusk. My house was alot closer than my friends house so we picked up a flash light and lantern and I mixed up some cranberry vodkas and hit the road again. This time instead of taking the actual busy roadways home we have a large dirt roadway through the woods large enough for cars to drive through. We enjoyed our small drink and drive in the moonlight home with the lantern and it was great.

                                But everyone is always responsible, no one ever gets drunk, many dont drink at all. Most of us are retired police officers, or currently working in a police dept so watching our actions, and safety are the most important!

                                    What???


                                    Me "drunk"...2-3 drinks. I'm worse on 2 benydral. (sp) It was no big deal. That night, no dinner and 2 beers---him 4 beers. I was relaxed and super happy.

                                    When I posted this, I thought it would bring up some fun memories from people. I wasn't meaning, "lets get drunk and ride our horse into the barb wire". Geez, I wish people would give others more credit than that. ??? It was a funny moment in my eyes, because of the 10 canter strides and watching him ducking from tree's, but never letting his beer go un level, it cracked me up. Then the following events, it was too funny. I can count on 1 hand the number of times where I have had more than 4 drinks. I can only count 2 times where I have had a buzz on horses. (to make sure I don't give the wrong impression about myself. WAIT, 3, if you count the Vicadan from a back injury.

                                    Here in AZ, we have "Maragrita" rides and poker rides, there is always beer at roping events and seems to be a common trend to bring several beers for a trail ride. I have never even seen anyone get the "whooping" drunk effect on a horse---well, on TV?

                                    PORNO ==nope. He was a cutie that was about 12 years my younger, Yes, thought he was cute, my personality is to talk like that. I think everyone is beautiful---I tend to openly share that--I forget that I can't be myself on a place where things are typed and that people can't see my "personality". Sometimes more things are read into it than is really there. SORRY-- "my bad".

                                    I'm going to change the name of the thread to: Have you ever been "buzzed" on a horse.

We play sort of low key... bareback with halters or hackamores and at low speed (if you ever sat on my spiney TB bareback you would understand, lol). Anyway, you take brooms and a beach ball. Set up cones or something on each end of the arena or field. Then you have to sweep the ball in to the goal. It is much harder than it sounds, because beach balls do not always cooperate

                                      P.S. the first time I played this, I was 12... alcohol is not necessary . I was also the kid jousting with my dressage whip 0:-)
                                      That sounds awesome! I also have a spiney TB and I understand completely . I do believe me and a friend will now be setting up a broomstick polo lot on her farm Haha dressage whip jousting: A new sport for those that don't want to be knocked off the horse at high speeds!

                                        LOL... I used to ride out with a group of about 10 Italian guys at Valley Forge Park near where I used to live, and inevitably about 1-2 hours into the ride we'd stop for wine and cheese. Them on their Arabs and QH's riding western, and me on my high-falutin-high-strung TB EEEE-vent mare. VF is awesome for big long stretches to gallop, and we'd see who was faster- the Arab or the TB (Arab at first, then my TB would pass them with her ass on fire and me up there loving every minute!) Then after the wine, when we got back to the main part of hte park I'd entertain everyone by jumping her over all the picnic tables. We all loved it, even my mare!! (not so much the people at the tables! ....JK! )

                                        Actually I would have jumped those tables, wine or not... but the wine made a great ride even greater.

                                        Those are some of my favorite memories on horseback. I even have pics, somewhere.
