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.

  • Thank you all for the warm welcome. What a great thread. I frequent COTH but never really knew there was a horse support group. So awesome.

    I will spend some time reading today but of course after I sent my trainer a text message saying "sorry to give you the trainers worst nightmare as your student tries riding the neck of their mount....." The response was "I have 3 for you to ride tomorrow" So after I hopefully survive my rides, I will read through everyone's experiences.

    Again thanks!

    • Dreamin- sorry to hear about your arm Hope you heal quickly.

      Welcome Doublestable- I can certainly share your frustration. I hate that feeling of not knowing where I am. I too am trying to ride as much as possible but it is hard when you work full time as well.

      We aren't getting hit with the hay price increase as the barn I'm at grows all their own hay, but they have been told to prepare for a big increase in grain prices.

      Bumknees- I hope your drive goes uneventfully. Is there anyone that can come with you?

        Wish you lived closer as it sounds like we have a few of the same issues and could have some fun together! I have suggested to my trainer before that there are a few of us if we were in the same lesson she might want to switch the Coke up to Jack & Coke.

          We can cyber ride together...

          And LOL I just said that yesterday... I may ride better if I have a few glasses of wine first... or at least I would "think" I am riding better.

          It's all about perception - right?

          • Wishing Bumknees a safe drive! Take your time, and enjoy the ride.

            Hazel, our area has not had that much of a hay shortage, so we are not scheduled for a rate increase. In fact, today, I'm seeing lots of trucks of hay as farmers are getting another cutting in.

            Dreamin', so sorry about the arm. KHP is so much fun, but not when you get to visit the local hospital. You can live vicariously through us for a while. I get to ride Mr. Rehab tomorrow.

            Doublestable, welcome aboard! I didn't ride much as a kid, tried to ride as a young adult, but then bills, and kids and work got in the way. Finally at age 45 I was able to do my Long Stirrup year. At age 52 I finally got a nice adult ammy hunter, and we just clicked. I got comfortable and successful at the A's, and we even got to do a 3' Hunter Derby with respectable scores. There's plenty of time for you to reach your goal. I don't know if my horse and I will ever show again (long injury story) but the journey was worth it. The right horse is very important, and "right" doesn't necessarily mean "expensive." The Over 50 Adult Ammys are a very fun group. Let us know how your journey goes.

            Iechris, I've had many lessons where some of us were partaking of adult beverages. Whatever works!

            Hi, Peg! Glad you and B are enjoying the great fall weather. Riding is so much more fun when you stay on! I had to ride a bratty pony who was in need of a tune up on Tuesday. At the canter, he's been dropping his inside shoulder, and then scooting to the outside fast, thereby dumping the kid on his back. He was very surprised to find out that didn't work with me. Had a great ride after that.
            It's 2017. Do you know where your old horse is?

            • dOTTB -- I am so sorry about your arm!! I hope you are feeling better. Tajar bucked me off in the summer of 2010 and I broke my collar bone, and it sucked! I can imagine it sucks even worse when it happens away from home

              pony4me -- so glad your boy is back to being sound! What a scare that must have been after all the work you have put into rehabbing him.

              bumknees -- your typing is looking great!

              I'm not sure what the hay/feed cost situation is for my barn owner/trainer. I told her if she needed to increase board I totally understood - just let me know. Everything is getting more expensive, so I figure it is inevitable.

              Tajar's sarcoid spots are looking really good, and he is cleared to be tacked up this weekend. Can't wait to get to the barn tomorrow. I haven't ridden in a few weeks due to Labor Day holiday and getting the new puppy this past Saturday (Weimaraner named Vesper).

                • Tarheel that puppy is just insanely cute. Congratulations.

                  No news from Opus Dewey. And, I might add, no news from Spacytracy either, who we all have to thank for starting this thread and bringing us all together!!! Should we pm them to see if they are ok? Or is that like stalking??

                  • Hi All:

                    Dreamin wow so very sorry about that last fence. I hate the hospital, I get migraines when I am there and it is always "we cannot give you Imitrex without your orthoped approving it" he/she is always gone...so sorry you had to be there. Get better,take it slow.

                    Pony4me-We are the same age. Fifty was tough but I don't want to quit riding, maybe getting a OTTB four year old wasn't the best idea but it beats joining the trail riding only set

                    So, I'm moving the baby AGAIN ! I need help and I cannot take him back to the valley with my trainer he hated the facility. I am feeling so strange about this, I can't seem to find a place where i fit in. So, hopefully I can move him very soon to the new place. I am healing from the bolt, so painfull I still have road rash that people keep comenting on, I am feeling so lovely-not.

                    Doublestable; Your horse is just lovely. People pay me for skills other than riding. I have accepted that. I have a co worker who is routinely asked to help the US women's sailing team, no one would care about me in any aa class and that is OK. I want to learn to ride my new boy but I need time....hope to do well in the show ring with him. It is always a gamble.

                    Hope everyone has a nice weekend..

                    • I will PM Opus--I don't think that is stalking. She can answer or not. Spacy is around. I have seen her posts on the Off Course forum--she was going to get a pony advertised on Craigslist, but it didn't work out. I kept expecting her to come here and announce it!

                      Stolen, so sorry you have to move your horse again. What a pain, and I hope the next move is to the dream barn! You can count me in the over-50 club. In fact, BO just told me about the AQHA Select World Show, exclusively for competitors over 50. I think she would like me to go as Sky has made real progress lately. She could go in the Working Hunters. However, I looked it up, and it's in Amarillo, Texas! There's no way I could afford that.

                      P.s.: Just received my new stirrup leathers and lead shank from Gary Mundy. I'm so excited! Here are some pictures:

                      • Hey y'all!

                        So sorry to keep y'all wondering about me. I think I made my last post here in early August, which was the same time one of my people left. And of course, I'm salaried, and my other people are hourly -- and just finishing up taking their furlough for the quarter, which just compounded the situation. So, I haven't had much time to pop into here, much less ride my poor boy.

                        Basically, this summer was hot. I think it was less hot than this year, but this year the heat really got to me. And then we had storms. And some tropical storms and then work. I think it's been nearly a month since I rode Oliver. I know, I know. Luckily, the other girl at the barn has been riding him consistantly. And truthfully, he's the kind of horse who doesn't seem to change from lack of riding. I still see him -- usually when I'm dropping off his SmartPaks or his board. And I groom him and hand graze him and all of that.

                        So, I pretty much took a mulligan on riding until later in the month. We JUST hired someone to take over for the coworker that left, and he still needs another week or two of training. I just figured it would make a lot of sense to take off 6 weeks and then come back when I could really and truly focus on riding.

                        Even though I'm convinced Oliver thinks I'm nothing more than his personal groom and treat dispenser, he'll see me lingering on the edge of the paddock and he'll come walking over and hang out with me. He's such a sweet boy. (He is the absolute LAST one in the pasture pecking order.)

                        And hopefully, I'll have some time later tonight to see how everyone else is doing. I went to our barn's jumper derby today and took lots and lots of photos that need uploading ... I hope y'all have been well!

                        • Dreamin - so sorry about your arm. Heal quick!

                          Tarheel - that is the cutest puppy! Love me some Weim!

                          Opus, I feel you. Between work and the weather, Finn thinks I am just somebody that shows up on the weekends, brushes him down, throws some treats and leaves. Since we are still in school, unless I lesson, he gets to watch me tack up "that hussy" and has the most confused look on his face. But, tomorrow we lesson - and I get to try out my discovery about my left hip for real!

                          The barn went to a local dressage show today - four riders. I took care of the early morning stuff for our four and then volunteered as a runner and ring steward. Had a blast! Met lots of nice people and my barn rocked! My trainer, on her Holsteiner mare, who is recovering from filly birth, took high point for the day! Because this mare tends to spook that things that a: she has never seen before, b: things she has seen but not seen, and c: things she thinks she may see; my trainer had me get in the judge "house" Friday afternoon while she schooled. I jingled my keys, talked out loud, thumped the chairs around, stood up, sat down and it worked. Today she was a rock star!

                          Bumknees, if you are worried about driving, do you have someone to go with, or talk to you while you drive back alone, via speaker, of course?
                          And nothing bad happened!

                          • Hi, Folks,

                            I'm cautiously saying that Mr. Rehab will be renamed Mr. All Better. He is sound trotting corners both directions!

                            However, he is not yet Mr. Back-to-Normal. Yesterday's ride was a disaster. He felt good, and had too much energy. He spooked and jumped when the maintenance guy came by, and when another farm worker started the tractor. Both spooks hurt my back some, and I interrupted my trainer's IHSA lesson to ask him to walk us back to the barn.

                            Today he started out nervous, but I went out with a lesson group and stayed in the ring for the whole lesson. We just walked and trotted with the group, and moved to another part of the ring when they started jumping. That seemed to work ok. He settled down, and had a good hour of walk/trot/halt/back/scritch/hug/cookie time. Current plan is to keep riding him for a whole lesson for each ride, and my trainer said she could sit on him, and teach a lesson at the same time, while occasionally trotting around.

                            There are still obstacles to overcome. We have to get him on normal turnout. He still gets round pen only. We have to see if he can canter and jump soundly and quietly. He will definitely be on full training board for October so the barn staff can deal with any problems. Maybe we are nearing the end of this journey.

                            Now that I've said all this, just wait. He's probably hanging out in his stall right now, planning his next surprise.
                            It's 2017. Do you know where your old horse is?

                            • Sounds like good news so far, pony4me!

                              And I hear you about wondering what they will cook up next. I got to the barn today, all excited to ride my horse for the first time since his cryo in July, only to find that he has some weird knot on his right, hind cannon bone. He is weight bearing on the leg, and there is no heat, but his movement is definitely off, and the area seems tender to pressure.

                              The sarcoids did not freak me out too, too badly, because they did not affect his movement and they weren't career threatening. Anything with legs scares the hell out of me.

                              • AAHunter and I managed to ride SIX days this past week! I'm a bit worn out at this point!!

                                Our lesson Thursday was great, we have two of the most serious college students with us and we ride out with them some during the week too. Unfortunately, I had one of those lessons where I couldn't quite get it all together, so spent the second half watching as it just wasn't my day to jump. I love being in lessons with more advanced riders as I can always learn by watching what they do, both right and wrong. Both college girls are strong riders and our A/O rider has an incredible leg.

                                Friday we had a quiet ride as everyone, horses included, were a bit tired. We walked down to the field and I just walked around but... I did the whole 40 minute ride without my stirrups! I'm getting stronger. Yesterday I worked on trying to pick one rein length and the just ride quietly instead of fiddling and changing up everything all the time. I swear I'm going to end up buying rainbow reins one of these years!

                                • iechris - don't knock the granimal reins - they taught me to feel when my hands are even. Speaking of which, think I need to get em out again........
                                  And nothing bad happened!

                                  • I have to admit I am bit jelious(sp?) of you all... even P4M with mr on and maybe today but well think about it..

                                    Yesterday I had what I concider a set back.. I had a(not horse related)VFW disirct meeting and had to do my officer obligation for the year (a istallitaion) and I had a "brain freeze" and stumbled and needed help to get through it. It was as though I had not ever taken it before. I had thaken it for the last 4 yrs so it was not as though I have not taken it before, I felt so dumb up there. Like "what amI doing am I doing up there I sould just sit down and say just select someone else, Im sorry I cant do this." But Igot thrgh it eventully with help. and I eventally stoped crying. I just dont cry in front of other people. It only took one klenex to stop crying. Every one eles took their obligation when I was in the hospital unable to talk etc... So seveal month ago. So I was the only on up there soiffelt like I was giveing a talk to a large group witch I dont do.. Me doing that normally leads to the first couple of rows would be best of the wear a tarp or rain gear... I dont do public speaking...

                                    So Im glad P4M that Mr. Rehab can I say is doing better excep he is spooking at every thing... Then is nervious the next day. Sunds like eis on his wy back, keep it up! (im not really "mad" at you just wishing my problem had happned to someone else).

                                    iechris I used rainbow reins a long time ago when I ventured into eventing. I was so used to doing the crest andthe auto relase. I had to learn the Ill call it "toss it away but get it back quickly" reease. Well that what it loooks like but it isnt. Had to go from like the yellow to the blue and back to yellow quickly. Those may not have not been the colors but you get the hint.

                                    The season is changing here I dont kow what im going to do. I get cold when temps go below 75f deg. So whem it isnt to hit above 60 all week Im going to hibernat(sp)... Im not look foward to the months that bring the white stuff...maybe I can convince dh fla for the cold months.. not likely. Not at least ive made it though the chairs at the district in the lavfw.. Anyone will a spell that I can put on my county to stay warm for the mths of Aug-May?

                                      I am off work this week, and next, etc. (long depressing story) so I went to ride today. Enough with the rain already! For the first time, the arena had puddles - horse eating puddles.

                                      I rode Thou Shalt Not Bang Me in the Mouth at the walk for a straight 40 minutes. On purpose. The purpose was to check my alignment as it were and work on keeping my hips straight. Harder than I thought, especially going right, but it did get better. Nothing like trying to ride a circular circle when the pony is dodging a puddle......
                                      And nothing bad happened!

                                        So, I'm moving the baby AGAIN ! I need help and I cannot take him back to the valley with my trainer he hated the facility.
                                        Think it's the best age for an OTTB - ahead of you by 8 years, and not ready for rocking my chair on only the trails yet either...

                                        Sorry for the move again, SV, and the road rash! It does make life so much easier without that worry in the back of your mind, and when you can just enjoy being at the barn.

                                        Now that I've said all this, just wait. He's probably hanging out in his stall right now, planning his next surprise.
                                        Yikes - sorry you have a new man! This sounds like B last fall. He hadn't been regularly ridden in awhile- no serious ailments, just stiffness, and once I worked him out of it, it was 'hang on to your hat!' as you well know. That, plus the fact that his canter has never been properly developed or figured out in the indoor, we've done LOTS of the walk/halt/walk/trot, but finally the goal is in sight! (Never thought we'd get there...) Hope he gets turnout soon - has made such a difference. It's always a balancing act, isn't it?!?

                                        Crap, Tarheel, if it's not one thing, it's another! Hope this is just a minor issue. Darn!

                                        Big excitement. Going to the hunter pace clinic weekend - leaving tonight!! (but it is close by, so not trailering far...). Have had a couple more lessons with visiting trainer - in the fields - and we are getting somewhere! Bagavond can still have his moments. The day after our good day with the trainer last week, I took him out alone, and he started pulling his stuff - I tried correcting him severely and it was apparent we were going to be in a power contest. Upon reflection I felt we hadn't done enough work in the indoor before going out. Not that it wears him down! (following lesson we trotted a half hour waiting our turn! ) But working in the indoor seems to set the tone for who's in charge before setting outside.

                                        And lesson earlier this week, we "let him" break into a canter in the field, without specifically asking for it - which seems to get him in a tizzy - and it was lovely!! I finally got to canter without numerous bucks thrown in the middle. I learned my horse has a lovely canter!! I am SO psyched!

                                        Just running late this a.m. as all the work I need to do at home (friend hopefully attending and staying at my place - must clean!!) was delayed as my 97 yo mother was taken to the ER yesterday with a melt down - she has them when she gets UTIs, and then sits there like a queen with everyone providing all the attention (had just visited 2 days before...plus extra visits from other sibs.) When I got home last night there were more calls and she was being difficult and I had to call. She is also reliving my father's passing over 20 years ago - and carries on so - when all they ever did was argue! So torn as I've been waiting so long for something like this to attend, and over a year to get to the point I can do something with him. Mom is in a gorgeous facility, and she seems more demanding when we've been to see her more often - so crossing fingers that nothing pops up in the next few days...

                                        Bumknees - thinking of you and hoping your trip was ok and that you are back and did it!! Here's to you and thank you for giving all of us the encouragement by your example.

                                        My weekend is beginning now with final preps at the barn today. Hope everyone's goes smoothly. Look out for those "feelin' good" fall rides!!

                                          CVPeg - I know exactly how that feels. At the hunter pace we all went to earlier this year, we were trotting along and all of a sudden we were cantering! And it was indeed lovely!
