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!

  • update on Paint horse vet procedure/lawsuit/and Blooper Reel. post # 30 (new pics)

    I competed in a CT this weekend.

    **2 weeks earlier was our bi annual vet visit for vacc. soundness exams and general health check up.

    Our vet advised that we try some treatment on Toby's back because he's always muscle sore from his lower back through his SI.

    As for behavior: he insists on leaving only from the base of fences. He can dish out a chip that tops the Keebler Cookie charts.
    He is pretty sloppy over verticals and after dishing out a big effort he'll usually stop at the next fence. (hence his stop at the smallest log on the TRHP HT XC BN course back in March).

    **So 10 days before the show I took him to the clinic and the work was done. I was told that he would be fine to jump a little later in the week and he should be good to go for the CT.

    Well, I took him to the CT and he was really un rideable.

    Every fence looked like this :
    THANK GOD I wore my vest~I almost needed it!
    http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p..._3873154_o.jpg

    No more: little step, must leave from the base or I'm going to chip-in Toby.
    Now: Yee-haa hang on!

    The first fence--and it only went down hill for me from there:
    http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p..._7436135_o.jpg

    he wanted to make sure he received full credit for bascule :
    http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p..._5776732_o.jpg

    He is now leaving the groud with both hind legs instead of just domainantly his right hind.
    look at his front leg!
    http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p..._5745587_o.jpg

    this is me freaked out in the 2 stride because I realized he was going for it (usually he'll add a stride).
    http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p..._7441569_o.jpg
    oxar out:
    http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p..._7774354_o.jpg

    I finally caught up with my body by the last fence, but I never regained control of my reins:
    http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p..._3582617_o.jpg

    Now it seems as though I need to relearn how to ride the little bugger.
    (how embarassing--I hope no one at the show recognized me )

    I guess I should send my vet a thank you card.

    As an attorney it is my obligation to inform you that such a suit is a waste of time. As my fee, you can just ship the useless beast to me.

    Seriously, he's super cute! Congrats on the progress!

          That sounds like it may be a good idea. I have no room in my yard for a horse who makes me improve my riding skills. I prefer to ride horses that make me look good.

          What's your address--I'll call Equine Express.

          It was just simple steroid/sarapin injections along the soft tissues on either side of his back bone (more lower back region) and then deep soft tissue injections by the SI (they used a 6 inch needle and it made me queezy).

          He was on bute for three days and then on the 4th day I started hacking him out.

            Not only is he unrideable, but you must also be overwhelmed by his cuteness and so, as a professional, I must insist that you send him to ME. And I will handle it
            You have GREAT equitation purp! Have fun with the little bugger!!!!

              OMG. I was looking through the pictures and wondering, "Why the h#ll is she complaining about this? He looks wonderful!" Then I got to your last line of your post.

              What a cute little bugger. I have such a soft spot in my heart for Paints.

                I'm so glad you posted. I had the exact same thing done on my horse yesterday and I'm hoping it works as well for him as it seems to have done for Toby.

                Now he looks as awesome as you do!

                  I may have to see how much this "adjustment" costs and ask the advise of my vet... I may just get to Prelim with the Goobs!

                    I feel your pain. I had some work done on a horse in July. Next time I saw the vet I told him I was having trouble with the horse. He got all concerned and asked what was wrong. I said nothing, he just feels so good I'm having trouble keeping up with him. He laughed and said he gets that "complaint" a lot.

                    Your horse has got springs for legs!! Have fun with him!

                      I was going "Oh goodness, this'll be a good thread ..." until I saw the pictures! Then it was a more "What is she talking about!? He looks great!" until I caught on. He looks fabulous! As you do.

                        Too bad he can't jump.
                        He's barely clearing the fences in pictures 2 and 7!
                        Just awful.
                        You should hide him in my barn!!

                        He is AWESOME!

                          Pretty cool! Me thinks your vet gave you a pretty nice equine upgrade with that procedure.

                          Last year I had to send the surgeon at the vet school a thank you note for the bonus lobotomy that he threw in gratis with my horse's knee surgery (to close a bad cut over his knee). Horse came back (and has remained) notably saner than he had been for several previous years.

                            He's ADORABLE. Did you guys SEE his little ears pricked up at each fence. What a little trooper!

                              I know NOTHING about jumping but when I was looking at the pictures I was thinking "why is this wrong?"

                              Maybe I know something afterall!!!

                                Toby has some blog entries...in case some of you guys haven't seen them.

                                He's pretty silly.

                                I'll mention to him that it might be time to start working on a new one.
                                He has a recognized HT at the end of Sept...he may wait until that is past a write up something great.
