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!

    I honestly think George Morris and Chuck Norris are the same person. I know if I had to fight one, I'd take Chuck Norris's roundhouse kicks to the face over George Morris's scathing criticism
    Hmm... you may be on to something there. Morris...Norris.... they do sound uncannily similar.

      He is the interesting man in the equestrian world...

      and he probably knows about this thread by now. And is laughing about it.


      • Original Poster

        Well now that we have had a few good laughs...I have to confess where I got this idea of "George Morris - The Most Interesting Man in the Equestrian World."

        I was driving to work on Thursday and heard the beer commercial for Dos Equis (an import beer) about "the most interesting man in the world" and burst out laughing. Then I thought to myself..who is a "over the top" ego maniac (sorry George!) who might be a real life most interesting man?

        In spite of the fact that I left the horse show world over 20 years ago (yes, I know...I need to stop visiting this Forum and get a life!) I could not resist putting together a beer commercial in honor of none other than The Great George Morris. George really is beer commercial material! And the only place I could display my warped sense of humor was here at this forum.

        In the 1980s I can still remmeber going to The Indoors (back when there was a National Horse Show at Madison Square Garden) with my buddies and all we could do was imitate George Morris and cut each other down (just like he does at some of his clinics).

        "You are pathetic. You couldn't ride a billy-goat with a good set of horns." Always loved that one.

          If a horse farts alone in a field, does it make a sound? Only George Morris knows.


          • Original Poster

            He once put on a party SO exclusive that even HE was not able to attend it.

            If he were to b!tch slap you in the face at one of his horsemanship clinics, you would thank him.

            He has made a grown man cry on several occasions. That's right. You heard me.

            He has been the life of many parties....that he has never attended.

              LMAO! those are great.....i liked :

              The toughest trainers in the business have been offered to fight him and all flat out refuse.

              Women pay him hundreds of dollars to be told they are fat and can not ride a billy-goat with a good set of horns.

              when you have more don't hesitate to post them!

                In the interests of keeping this based on facts - how do you know what his pillow talk is like?

                P.S. He's my equestrian hero: being from British back ground and taught (in shrillll voice) to "grrrrrip with your knees", it was when I came this side of the pond I learned of equitation and made darned sure my girls had the best chance to learn from the Great Man.

                For all the teasing, he can be most charming and witty. Love you, Georgie.

                    My daddy hung out with GM when they were both 7 years old. They rode with Margaret Cable Self (sp?) in New Canaan, CT (?) for a bit.

                    They also made some pretty sorry model sailboats which they'd "sail" on ponds. Of course when the boats got out of reach and stopped moving, Daddy and George resorted to throwing rocks at 'em until they sank.

                      When George Morris walks a course, jump rails tremble in the cups.

                      When he lifts a megaphone, it automatically broadcasts the exercise he is thinking of, even if the batteries are dead.

                      When he approaches his golf cart, all surface dust immediately disappears and the drink holder magically produces a diet soda.
                      Patience pays.

                        He can kill horses by just resting a metal pipe on the top pole.

                              Too too funny, worldclass777!

                              Little old Italian women lovingly rub the finest extra virgin olive oil on his saddles. The runoff is used in the best restaurants in Rome.

                              Medical studies of his techniques have prompted gynecologists around the world to raise the stirrups in their exam rooms.

                              At exactly midnight on his birthday, horses can talk.

                              George Morris One is always ready to fly him anywhere he wants to go. (I've heard it's big and pink)

                              I like logical people---they provide a nice contrast to the real world.

                                He knew about this thread 5 years ago. He is George Morris. (and, incidentally, probably implanted the idea in the OP's head via the "Inception" concept. On that note, he probably implanted the movie concept in somebody's head!)
