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.

    Had a woman out to do some reiki/body work on my horse and she's also an animal communicator. Anyone believe in that sort of thing?

    i did it for my horses. it's fun. some of the stuff was hilarious. my sweet steady guy told her the young horse was annoying and never shut up and he didn't want to ride next to him on the way home from Florida But he just described a horse that had a blaze and was bay, had ADD and talked a lot. I figured out it was the young one from that. very entertaining.

      My guy said he was born to be pampered and is very fancy
      He also told her I lean to the left which is good to know.
      It was definitely fun hearing what he said. I also need to start buying more carrots!

        Mine told the communicator that something that was happening "every month" was really annoying her and making her uncomfortable and that if I would just stop doing that thing, the problem we were there to talk about would go away.

        So I stopped giving her Depo shots every 28 days and, yeah, it went away.

            ACs fall under "comedic value" for me as a professional, but, sometimes since they are left in the dark in some cases, they can catch or see things that people used to the horse don't see. So for that, they can have their place... but I don't necessarily believe there is a two-way discussion going on between AC and horse/animal. More like, maybe the AC is very intuitive to expressions of the horse, and also has learned to read people accordingly.

            So tell us, what did the AC say?

              IF animal communicators do achieve a connection with the horse, a good enough connection for complicated concepts, I most certainly do not have it.

              But over the past decade I've been riding other people's horses, lesson horses, and sometimes when I wonder how a particular discomfort the horse has came about I sometimes get rather short "video clips" in my mind.

              For instance I wondered why the BOT poll caps &/or the Fenwick face mask with ears seems to help these horses, I got the above mentioned short video clip of a horse slamming back when tied with a halter, and with the Fenwick eared face mask I got a brief video clip of the horse being "eared". I got the impression that these horses had a perpetual "headache" from slamming back when tied, and with the eared horses I got the impression that their ears still hurt some.

              One horse had something wrong with his back behind the saddle. When I wondered about it I got a brief video clip of the horse jumping into water and his hind legs slipping off to the side, wrenching his back. (I already knew the horse had been evented.)

              So maybe there are people who pick up a whole lot more than I do. I don't know. I've never used an animal communicator, mostly because riding horses takes up the majority of the money I can spend for luxuries, like tack and riding horses at all.

                Thats what I thought but she said one thing that is unlikely she could have guessed. My horse said:
                He was born to be pampered
                He likes when people stop when they are driving by and look at him (thats the one that surprised me. I have my horse at home and people often will stop and watch him in the paddock or while I'm riding. Even take pictures which kinda creeps me out when I'm riding)
                He's very fancy
                He tries the best he can and that he doesn't hate his job or life
                He likes carrots
                He likes jumping but not crazy jumping
                That I sit more to the left
                He likes that I sit in the middle and not too forward or backward (another one that made me think because that is exactly how I ride)
                He's very happy and appreciative
                He likes the dogs and considers them part of his herd but that he's in charge
                He talks to me all the time and that I'm pretty receptive to listening and understanding what he needs and wants

                I paid for the bodywork not the communication but it was interesting to hear what he told her. Again not sure if its a real thing or not but I like to believe it was

                  Thats really interesting she described it in a similar way but described it more as seeing an image in her mind. As she worked on him she would tell me what he was saying

                    It is also called the gift of gab.
                    You throw out there a bunch of thoughts and the listener works hard to make them fit what they know or want.
                    Some do stick and those is what people remember.

                    I had an aunt that was a fortune teller and card reader.
                    She made a good living at that, she was good.
                    When asked if any of that was real, her response was always, some times I surprise myself.

                    ---"Mine told the communicator that something that was happening "every month" ... "---

                    Does anyone really believe horses know what a month is?

                      About words, sometimes my riding teacher tells me about her reasons for working a horse a certain way or her plans for the horse.

                      OCCASIONALLY I get a "message" from the horse of "tell Debbie that..." with a comment or opinion. This is not common at all for me and not every horse does it.

                      My riding teacher is used to this by now since I've ridden with her for over a decade.

                      Most of the time I just read what the horse's body is saying. By now I consider the action of every muscle as a word in a paragraph. So long as I keep my mind open and approach the horse with the attitude that the horse is entitled to his opinion I can often figure out their "sign language." Some horses are very eloquent if one just listens to them. No New Age mumbo jumbo needed, every moment the horse is communicating with his whole body.

                        After trying multiple things for my Doberman, I consulted an animal communicator. I am very skeptical about them in general, so please keep this in mind.

                        I have a hedgehog who is rarely, if ever mentioned, on my social media. This communicator sent me a message on Facebook while we were setting up an appointment and told me she had a message for me from an animal with a mask. She asked first if I had a pet raccoon, to which I said no. Then she said, "He's showing me his hands. Does he have paws he uses like hands?"

                        I replied, "No, not really..."

                        "He says he likes his name. Dart. And that he likes you because you're quiet and you don't bother him a lot. He's showing me his little face again... he has a dark face, but he's not a raccoon... is he a hedgie?"

                        "He is."

                        "He says you're very nice to him and he likes you, and he appreciates that you're not loud and scary. He's very proud of his hands though... he says he likes when you pet his nose, but not when you hold his hands to clip his nails. He would rather smell your hair."

                        I never told her any of that, it's not common knowledge. So she won my trust a bit and I agreed to let her meet my dog, Atlas.

                        I muzzled him because he can get aggressive with fear. As soon as she came in, she blurted out, "I'm sorry! I know you told me to sit. I'm going to sit right now!" as he was barking from outside. As soon as she sat down at the table, he stopped barking.

                        I let him in and she immediately got teary-eyed as she looked at me and said, "this dog loves you beyond words and he's scared for you. He needs to protect you from the bad people. He says a bad person hurt you once and that he feels bad because he didn't protect you." Then she laughed and said, "He's saying you had poor judgement with this person because he was pretty."

                        (I always used to tell this person, "it's a good thing you're pretty")

                        As she was sitting, Atlas was watching her and and I talk. Every time I'd get upset, Atlas would glare at her and multiple times, she said, "Buddy, I'm not hurting her, I promise. It's okay." Then she'd say to me, "This dog would absolutely die for you. He doesn't like to be this way and he knows it makes you nervous and anxious, but he can't help it. He's so anxious for you."

                        The short story is - my ex was very mentally and emotionally abusive and it was very difficult on me. Before I met him, my dog was extremely happy, social and loved everyone. He was okay with my ex until the abuse started and then things started changing. It's been 5 years now, countless behaviourists, trainers and vet checks with no signs of illness or any improvement on his behaviour. The animal communicator was a last resort.

                        She sat with us for over 2 hours, just kind of staring off into space, talking randomly and telling me things that I'd never told her about Atlas. She told me that he didn't think he could ever be trusted without a muzzle because sometimes, "he can't control himself" and "even though he knows it's wrong, he can't help it". He told her that people make him intimidated and when they look at him, he thinks it's a challenge. But he also doesn't want to be locked away because that makes him more nervous since he can't see me and protect me. He carries a lot of guilt for not being able to protect me from my ex and from what the communicator told me, now he worries that anyone coming through that door is a threat.

                        He also told her that my fiancé is "a fun couch"... he sits on my fiancé a lot and adores him, but sees him as a fun play mate. He loves me and wants to always be with me, but he also wants me to be stronger and more assertive with him. The communicator told me that I need to work on being more confident too, since the abuse really destroyed that. I need to speak up for myself and show both of us (Atlas and I) that I can take care of myself, so he doesn't feel the constant need to always defend me. So my homework is to be assertive - if Atlas goes toward a person, I'm supposed to stand in front and back him up. For every step he takes forward, he goes back two.

                        According to the communicator, Atlas' "rules" are:
                        - Strangers to the house should not look at him because that is an immediate challenge issued
                        - Any guests in the house should be sitting, because people standing are an opportunity for danger
                        - Strangers should not pet his head and definitely not his ears since that is where the "bad man" used to hit him. No touching at all is preferable, but he'll "accept" if they want to scratch his back.
                        - When people are over, he would be most comfortable in eyesight of me, with his muzzle.
                        - He needs a "safe zone" - arm length away or an easy escape. If he feels cornered, he will go forward and could hurt someone. If he has an escape zone, he will go that way to avoid confrontation.

                        Since meeting with the communicator, we've put these rules into place and they're proving more helpful than any input any trainer has ever given. Atlas is a highly trained, very sensitive dog, but he is so anxious due to past abuse that he can't relax around people. My fiancé thinks I'm insane, but he can't argue the results so far. We've got to the point where people can come in the house, take a seat and ignore Atlas while he does the customary sniff, before I tell him to lay down on his bed. He's still watchful, but he'll actually lay down and relax a bit. Things still get a bit hairy when guests walk to the bathroom or make a sudden movement, but for the most part... Atlas is doing better.

                        Every so often, the communicator will message me and ask about something specific. One day, she said, "Atlas likes being your best bud". I call Atlas my best bud when I'm leaving for work. Or another day, she said, "As much as he appreciated the treat you gave him last night, he didn't feel well afterward and wouldn't like that treat again". I'm not sure how she knew my dog got sick from a new treat he had, but weird.

                        And funny story. I adopted my other dog from Mexico and when the communicator showed up, she was like, "You have another dog, a chihuahua. Where is she?" As Atlas was sitting in the corner and Sonya was at her feet. I said, "No, just the two dogs."

                        "That's strange, because one of your dogs said she was a chihuahua."

                        And then she burst out laughing as Sonya turned around and glared at her, "Oh! I'm sorry. I misunderstood, You're not a chihuahua! You just lived with them!"

                        (Sonya came from Cancun and when they picked her up, she was running with a pack of chihuahua street dogs).

                          StarPattern thats an incredible story! I think the problem with animal communicators and psychics is there are too many fakes that give them a bad rap. But I do believe there are real ones out there. Looks like you found one! Thats so awesome

                            EVERY person who successfully works with ANY animal is an "animal communicator." Some are very sensitive, observant, and facile, some are pretty much stone deaf in every sense of the word. The first group seem to have magic abilities; the second group do not. What NONE are doing is using any sort of "extra sensory perception." That is complete hogwash.

                            If you want to see examples of people showing "magic" abilities then watch "Penn and Teller: Fool Us." Google it or look up some of the things you can find on utube. These guy, and the numerous acts they have on stage, do things that seem otherworldly but are, in fact, based upon trickery and misdirection. They are most assuredly not relying on "other worldly powers."

                              I think it is more likely that the AC is reading your thoughts, rather than the animal's.

                                I am no communicator but I did used to have a thing about shoes. Call it a good ear or eye but I would get a feeling and sure enough there would be a shoe off. It's likely communicators are reading us though.

                                  Reiki and animal communicators? Nope. Now.,.,,have animal communicator come out. Don't tell them what horse, after all, your horse knows you, doesn't it? Go into house or in any event away from communicator so you can give NO feedback. Tell them "Let me know what the horse says." (If you are there, you WILL react to the animal communicator's guesses, not to mention they can look you up beforehand on facebook, etc. It's called cold reading and hot reading (if they research you.) Now, I think some are sincere but deluded, and others are simpy above average at interpreting animals' body language, but others.....it's a scam. Unfortunately, the JREF prize no longer exists, but it was offered for many years for anyone who could prove psychic powers, dowsing, perpetual motion, etc. The tests had to be approved by both JREF and the claimant, so the claimant couldn't say it was "rigged" or the like. NO ONE EVER WON THE PRIZE ($1 million),

                                    I don't believe in any of the animal communicator I've come across.

                                    That said, I've had some interesting moments when my guard is down when out of left field I've been flooded by the emotion a horse in my vicinity is feeling. Negative feelings, and not my horse.

                                    I've had similar things happen very rarely once with a haunted house I lived in, once with an old battlefield site. I don't go looking for this stuff and i don't always recognize it when it's happening.

                                    But I think it would be hard to impossible to call these responses up on cue.

                                      I've used ACs for many years on my different animals. Almost all consults were over the phone; the only info she has is name, breed, age, description and location.

                                      While waiting for the hauler to remove my horse's body after euthanizing him two weeks ago, I called the AC I consult with and she immediately made an appt. for me a few hours later. Of course she said he's fine now, and I did the right thing and he was relieved (he had EPM). Said it was very scary for him to be down and unable to get up when outside (we found him that way at least twice). Described a "grumpy chestnut" that my horse annoyed by telling him how "handsome I am, and my mom comes and grooms me and fusses over me and yours doesn't". That was his t/o buddy, and this was true. And I always told him he was the most loved and shiniest horse in the barn.

                                      When an animal passes, another one will come a few days beforehand and tell them all that will happen, and then come for them when the time comes. She said a gray Arabian with a pink nose visited him; that was my previous horse to a T.

                                      Many other past sessions revealed much more exact things, but at that moment I really needed to hear what she told me. I didn't expect to put him down that morning. I know it was the right thing to do, but needed to hear that he was OK with it and wasn't scared. He went very peacefully and although my heart is broken, I'm looking forward to moving on with a different horse knowing that he may come back to me in another body (how cool would that be!) In fact, she recently wrote a book about the many stories of this happening over the years with her clients.
