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!

  • FINALLY'''The Horse With the Flying Tail"!!!!!

    After YEARS of waiting and searching, Disney has released a DVD of "The Horse With the Flying Tail". For those of you who have not reached the ripe old age of at least 50 (or a tad bit older) this is a documentary put out by Disney around 1960 and it told the story of the palomino horse named Nautical who Hugh Wiley rode with the USET in the 1950s. I can hardly wait until it comes. Now I will keep my fingers crossed for the release of the "The Horsemasters".

      why Don t I see it on Netflix?Do you mean it' s available on DVD?


      • #4
        I tried to order it and it can't be shipped to Canada. Drat.


        • Original Poster

          As of 3 days ago, NETFLIX still did not have it.... that is great that they have it now but I think I want to own it. I found it on EBAY but then saw that Disney is selling directly for $25.00 (I think)...I think the site is DisneyMovies.


          • #6
            I just got it on Amazon for $49.95.

              I don't see it on Disney's official list of available DVDs. The movie's actually in my "awaiting release" section on Netflix, and hasn't changed status since I put in there Do you have a link to where you're finding it?

                I didn't realize it had gotten so hard to find? I bought a copy off Amazon last fall for ~$25.


                • Original Poster

                  Wow....I have been looking every 6 months or so for years...maybe I skipped my search last spring. I think I googled "The Horse with the flying Tale" for sale but I will check and correct that if I am wrong. There were a few on EBAY 2 days ago....yep...just google what I said and look to the right as well as the left....Virginia video has it for even less

                    I've had it on my Netflix list for three years. Hopefully I can get it. I loved it when I saw it decades ago. D--- you Disney for sitting on these classics. Ditto The Horsemasters.


                    • #11

                      It shows up at Disney Store for $24.95

                        I bought one off of Amazon, and I can't wait to get it. I hope someday that Horsemasters will come out on DVD.

                          Wow!! That is great news. I can't wait to order mine. I loved that movie. I did not have my own horse when I was young, so watching any movies that had horses in them was a treat. I also enjoyed Fury and Flicka on Saturday mornings.

                          Horsemasters was great too.


                          • Original Poster

                            I did not have a horse either but dreamed about them pretty much every waking hour! Fury and Flicka were sacred to me on Saturday mornings. I also loved Roy Rogers. My friends and I played "Horsemasters" for hours...each of us taking on a character. I am hoping my Nautical movie comes by the weekend.......it has been on our Netflix list for several years as well!

                              I have the Horsemasters on video and wondering if I can put it on DVD so I can preserve it!

                                  You can tape a VHS tape onto a DVD using either a DVD/VHS recorder dual format machine, or some place like Walmart or photo stores do it also. However, copyrighted material will not be recorded for you (it's illegal), and some VHS have copy protection software so you can't retape. I did a lot of family movie type home stuff from VHS to DVD for friends when I had the DVD/VHS recorder deck.

                                    I can't believe the many "Horsemasters" references here. This thread must skew a little older than others!
                                    I did not have the chance to ride a lot when that came out and I LOVED it.

                                      OMG you're kidding, right? I paid $19.95 off of an Amazon seller 4 or 5 months ago, along with The Horse in the Gray Flannel Suit ($14.95).

                                        I loved the book (still have my copy) and remember the movie, it starred Annette Funicello, would love to have it in DVD.

                                        And there are shops (our local camera shop does it) that will transfer from VHS to DVD, it cost me about $25 IIRC.
