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!

        The position prevents the cat from correctly flexating. You could listen to this cat's a$$ all day and not hear leather stretching.

        It is a serious riding fault, much like the chair seat:

        https://scontent-a-iad.xx.fbcdn.net/...79106786_n.jpg

        Note how the legs are out in front of the cat, compromising her balance and preventing her from experiencing Cottonelle Fluffernutter softness in the reins.

        This cat puts herself out there as a serious competitor but she needs to show humility and seek out guidance from the true masters.

        http://wharble.com/sites/default/fil...at_T-Shirt.jpg

        Note the straight back. This cat is sitting equally on his two seatbones. Although he is an off-breed cat, he demonstrates the potential to perform at the highest levels. I know this cat personally because I was almost his small animal vet's assistant scheduler many years ago.

        Remember: there are no short cuts to moving up the levels:

            I seriously came into work this morning with a sippy cup full of café crème. People looked at me kind of funny and made comments about my cup.
            But I didn't tell them I was COTH proofing my desk and keyboard.

              • From his FB supporters group:

                Nick Peronace
                Draw reins ans Baucher flex are very beneficial training aids in the correct hands.

                I so desperately want to comment that his hands are not correct and therefore, he should stay away from draw reins, but I don't want to get kicked out of the group and lose my benefits

                • Ok, the indoor video of np working the black horse. I still hear jingling. Can someone who rides in an indoor arena confirm the sound I am hearing is what frozen sand echoing indoors really sounds like?

                    It was confirmed in an earlier thread that the sound is frozen sand, not chains or other "action devices."

                    • I love the cat dressage. Oh how I wish old Spencer (20) and Chloe (17) and overweight Tobey (10) could do that!

                      As for the metallic sound in the indoor, I watched the video over and over after the owner of the horse houseguested on one of the old threads and said the horse had on a certain type of boot and that the sound was the sand hitting the side of the building. Uh, part of the circle being ridden was far far away from the metal wall, and therefore no sand was hitting the wall from that distance. The sound was the same when the horse was near enough to the wall to have sand actually hit it, but was also the very same sound when the horse was far away from the wall so that sand could not have been hitting it from that distance. Listen to the sound and watch the distances from the different walls. That horse is not crowding the wall in the full circle. The cadence is the same no matter how far the horse was from the wall, or how near he was to the wall.
                      Someone please go to the next clinic. Or host one where we can have a Coth meet up to enjoy the show.

                        Are the clinics free? Because I would hate for anyone to financially support him--it would give him some small amount of "authority" that he clearly doesn't deserve. He needs to be paying instructors and clinicians to teach him, not the other way around.

                          • Sounds like he judged that schooling dressage show just about the same age that he made the piaffe video.
                            The virtual "woodshed" seems the only remedy for willful fools .

                            • I love the new post on Nick's page. Reposting here in case it gets deleted.

                              "As a new entry into the world of dressage I have come across a lot of conflicting information and would like to make a suggestion as to how to put the doubters to rest. The few vids I have come across of your riding/training have been fairly simple; walk, trot or cantering with the occasional piaffe/passage tossed in. Why not create a full vid, say about 30 mins, of your riding, including showing the upper level movements such as canter pirouettes; tempi changes; half passes etc, in other words something other than the more simple WTC, and submitting the same video to one, preferably two or three, well known trainers/riders for their take on the vid? A positive review from them would go a long way towards validating your claims and would most likely really embarrass the doubters. I would imagine the negative comments would almost immediately cease which could certainly help you in your career. Just a thought."

                                he replies that the video is already posted in the group, I just can't figure out which video it is????? pretty sure I've watched them all, and none of them have any of that "fancy stuff" (I'm a h/j rider, LOL)

                                  didn't he reference Tina Konyot in the Eurodressage comments? I just so happen to know the trainer who leases her farm in CT, and have met Tina a few times. if there was better parking for trailers down there, it would be so much fun to have him in when she was also in town, she doesn't keep her opinions to herself much, and it would def. be a show :-)

                                    You need to look at the time the comments were posted.

                                    1) Someone posts "Can't wait to see the video." 9 hours ago.

                                    2) Nick posts "The video is posted already in our group." (in his private facebook group) 9 hours ago.

                                    3) New person suggesting he make a video with "fancy stuff." 1 hour ago.

                                    Unless you are in his private group (I'm not), you can't see whatever video he posted from the clinic.
