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!

  • Anyone See Lucinda Green clinic on RFDTV

    She was holding an eventing clinic with pretty low level horses and/or riders. She started out in the indoor with a cool exercise. Made an arrow out of two standards to a small object, ie a mounting block or something similar. Not high, maybe 18: - 2'. Then she had 2 skinny jumps set in offset lines.

    First she made them trot the point of the arrow ^, come back to trot and jump the skinny jumps. All about slow, so the green/young horse could mentally assess the situation being presented. That went pretty well, then they jumped in reverse, 2 skinny fences to the point of the arrow, all at trot.

    Then she had them canter it both directions. It was cool. Really showed errors in straightness, direction, position, etc.

    I set it up in my arena today, and lunged over it first, and no problem, the challenge is to keep them from running out of the skinny jumps, but mostly the point of the arrow backwards. Got some work to do!

    I watched it a while back and really enjoyed it too. I'm glad you reminded me...I would like to set that exercise up too. It definitely gives the horse and rider something to think about which is always good!

      I rode in her clinic at Win Green earlier this week, and we started with that exercise. She uses a variant at every level.

      It is a GREAT exercise.

        Did that same exercise 4 years ago when I rode with her in PA. She's amazing at breaking everything down so you can see the building blocks involved (ie. walking ditches, banks, trotting smaller versions of complex questions). Loved riding with her and would definitely love to do it again with my new guy!

            Lucinda is here in GA this weekend at Cedar Ridge Farm...here's a suggestion for others thinking of riding with her in clinics on a regular basis: either take lessons from or audit lessons from a trainer who uses a training system similar to Lucinda's system or trains with her at clinics...I work with Lellie Ward whose training system is built on the same principles as Lucinda's and happily also takes clinics from her...in fact, I think I learn more because I know I can go back and ask Lellie what Lucinda meant, or how something translates into what WE do...this isn't an advertisement for Lell, but rather, a just know - Lucinda is all about being a proACTIVE, smart rider, and many of us aren't taught that in our instruction.

              I set this up in the arena yesterday (just the corner/arrow) and plan to work on it today! I think I may know of a few jumps I can use for the skinnies.

              I rather enjoyed the show because the hot little chestnut mare reminds me of my hot little bay mare.

                          I just got back from a clinic she did today and it was great.
                          The exercises she does helps both horse and rider so much!!
                          She is GREAT

                            I plan to jot down some notes later this week and post them. Lucinda was fantastic, and my horse and I had such confidence-building sessions with her.

                              She is such an inspiration. I love that she can get so much achieved with teeny tiny jumps - that even I can do, safely, on my sub-optimal patch of uneven ground, all on my own !

                                I've ridden with her multiple times in clinics and we did not do a single normal length fence except for a 'corner', that she put a pole blocking of half of it. She made us walk barrels then canter to a skinny bending 4 to two angled skinnies on 5 strides. Ive done the arrow on my own before and most horses seem confused when jumping it point forward! She's really a great clinician i try to go to every year
                                typos are my specialty
