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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

    Much discussion on Facebook.
    The owner of the cane corso dogs is a trainer and this has apparently been a problem in the past at other shows.
    You will not rise to the occasion, you will default to your level of training.

        This is the post I saw. I think it’s public. It sounds like a horrible situation. Poor kid, poor puppy.

          No dogs should be allowed at a horse show period...
          leashed rule is a joke...dogs pee all over your hay. Poop in the aisles..makes me crazy!
          Your village is calling. Apparently their idiot is missing!

            It's mentioned in some detail in the ever slimy Horse Show Diva forum.

              I agree. As someone who was bit in the thigh by a trainer’s dog eight weeks ago, it was an awful experience.


              • #8
                I think people with a little dog should follow the rule of keeping them on a leash or keeping them in a crate. The little dogs at the shows I go to are always loose and charge at my dog who is on a leash. My dog is very good but it’s ridiculous.


                • #9
                  It is horrific to think of what that little girl went thru and the trauma both mental and physical she suffered.

                  The dog owner in question's dogs have been terrorizing exhibitors at shows for years. I always steer clear of them. I no longer bring my big dogs to shows because of all of the loose dogs. And I only bring my little one when I am not too busy and can scoop him up if need be.


                  • #10
                    Don't bring dogs to a horse show. That's it. Just don't.

                    • #11
                      That is hideous. I won't bring my dogs anywhere they could possibly disrupt. That's so rude. Dogs do not belong at horse shows, even if they don't get loose, who needs the barking? Loose dogs invite disaster, even the best behaved ones and accidents happen.

                      Large dogs with small prey instincts should NEVER be in public without a muzzle and on an attended leash (human on other end at all times.) When I have owned a dog with prey instincts I was very careful when I took her out of her yard. I'm glad I haven't had one of those in years, tough dogs to handle and love, cannot be trusted around small animals, you must watch them like a hawk. Idiot owners in that case.


                      • #12
                        What an awful story. That poor little girl.

                        Typically its the terriers that I see causing problems at horse shows, so I am surprised to see that the aggressor here was a Cane Corso.

                        While banning all dogs from horse shows sounds like an excellent idea to me, I don't think that that will ever happen. A lot of these pros spend every single weekend on the road at a horse show somewhere, so for them to hire someone to take care of their dogs every weekend would be extremely expensive. Even for me, hiring someone to watch my dog for the handful of horse shows I attend is expensive and I can't always do it.

                        I am lucky in that my breed of choice has always been Greyhounds. They are very gentile and are like "velcro" on my hip, and I adopt them after racing, so they are accustomed to wearing a muzzle when necessary. However, that doesn't change the fact that they look intimidating with big ole fangs and everyone knows that my dogs could chase down their yappy dog and swallow it whole before anyone knew what was happening. So I have noticed at horse shows, when people see my dogs, they find their dogs immediately and put them on a leash. I assume they do it as a precaution.

                        Perhaps rather than banning dogs all together, a good compromise would be to ban certain breeds, just like high volume apartment complexes. There are some "usual suspects" that really wreak havoc at horse shows.

                          Couldn’t get the original description of what happened to load so....was the little dog leashed or not?

                            By banning "certain breeds" I assume we aren't talking the high energy yappy jack Russells that wreak havoc and won't let things go, yapping and terrorizing other dogs? Or the large enthusiastic goldens and labs that don't stop barking and jump up and at everyone? Or the chihuahuas that yap and yap and yap..? Worst incident I ever saw knew of was when a young golden at an in barn show that bit a child's face. I assume no one is talking about banning them though.

                            come on now. Let's be reasonable - "breed bans" don't stop bad owners from bringing poorly trained and poorly socialized dogs into the public sphere. Bad owners aren't restricted to breeds of dogs.

                            Horse shows should be for horses, first and foremost. If people are unwilling to restrict their canine companions if they are a disruption (loose, barking, chasing, lunging at the end of their leashes at any passers by) the dogs need to be banned. I am distressed that people feel so entitled to create "dog space" in what is clearly defined as a horse event. I love well behaved dogs at equestrian events. But unfortunately many people don't seem to be accurate assessors of their own dogs' behaviors.

                              findeight My understanding is that the little girl was holding the puppy in her arms when the other dog (which I understand was on one of those long "leashes", clearly not short enough for him to be under control) attacked it.


                              • #16
                                If the kid was holding the puppy in her arms and the other dog attacked both of them? Leashed or not won’t make any difference. Big dog owner did not have control of the big dog and that sounds like a lawsuit plus animal control involvement.

                                Sounds like neither party was violating USEF rules.

                                  There also needs to be a rule about length of leash. Clearly if "leashed" the leash was way too long to be actually safe. Hooking your Cane Corso who has bitten several people to a longe line isn't exactly following the spirit of the rule.


                                  • #18
                                    Did horse show diva delete its thread? I only see a short post with 2 small comments there. the FB thread is extensive.

                                      Per the FB link posted, puppy's owners asked Tom for money to pay for puppy's care and Tom agreed. Is that true? Why would any third party pay or be responsible for the bills? Corso's owner/s are fully liable and should do the right thing and pay. Or their insurance will. Anyone know what's happening financially or legally?

                                      I hope animal control was involved.

                                        Who was the trainer! Somebody with a big string who always fills the managers stalls and classes.? Course we are relying here on second hand info for restitution requests and fulfillment. Don’t know who said what to whom when.
