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!

  • Barrel Race Training Gone Wrong

    Has anyone seen this video that is going viral?

    Here is a shortened clip, the orginal was taken down.

    https://m.facebook.com/story.php?sto...70813336599755

    Apparently the horse had alley issues (didn't want to go into the arena to run barrels). So this "trainer" decided to place some type of electrical prod under the saddle pad. Obviously this just confused the poor horse who starts violently kicking out.


    Some of the comments have said that someone standing by should've grabbed the horse or grabbed the girl off. But I do think that could've been dangerous.

    Have you ever seen such blatant abuse in public? How did you react?

    Kick On

    Nothing about that says ‘training’ it’s pure abuse.

    Can’t help but wonder how shut down that horse is....if you tried that shit with Chuck, then I feel that you would still be waiting to land he would have thrown you that high.

    As for getting involved, difficult, looked like a dangerous situation, where anyone could have got hurt. In that situation getting video evidence and taking it to Steward, Show Office, Judge, who ever would appear to be the safest option.

      I wish someone had walked to the mare and taken her by the bridle. That mare was not going to walk toward the arena. With the mare in hand, someone else could have taken the other side and backed the whole shebang out of the pen. Ok knocked down the pattern. Turn the lights off. Something. However....this gal is local to them with multiple arrests in her history...I would wonder if they are afraid of her at least a little. I think they called the cops but she got out of their before they arrived

        Have you checked the validity of the post? Who is the person in the video, who does the horse belong to, and how do you know there was a device laced under a saddle pad? Or are you just believing it as gospel truth and spreading it without any verification of accuracy?

          Unfortunately that could have been quite risky: horse could have easily reared and struck out, or flew backwards to avoid the person. A horse in that state of distress isn't going to be safe and responsive. As it wasn't a recognized event, they didn't have stewards to take official steps, so I think calling law enforcement and videoing was probably the best action steps they had available to them.

            It has been verified by people who were there, yes.

            She is Stacie Soape. she is called by name in the video.

            In several frames you can see the jigger device under the pad.

              I understand that completely. The mare could have also flipped and killed her. I have stepped in to deal with drunks, abusers, horses hung up in panels, horses hung to gate latches by stirrups. Don't go out there in flip flops, no...but I wish for the horse and overall safety that someone had stepped up.

                The horse apparently has an arena record at that facility (with previous rider). Police were called to the event.

                Only two emotions belong in the saddle: One is a sense of humor. The other is patience.

                  Is that reach back with the right hand in order to activate said shocking device?? I see reach back, kick out, reach back, buck and when both hands are on the reins the horse is uncooperative but not acting out.

                  It would have been positively dangerous to attempt to assist if the rider were still activating the device and she only seemed to stop when the panels were falling down and she had been ordered off the horse by a male voice which I would assume was a gate guy. I could never hear what the woman on the PA had to say.

                  That was horrible.

                  She deserved arrest and prosecution and likely calling the local police was the best alternative, most of these events aren't sanctioned and are loosely run.

                      Gawd, that poor horse

                      Gotta say, though, it's really refreshing to see a video like this where the people standing around are pretty much all telling the rider to STOP, get OFF THE HORSE, knock this shit off. How many times do we see stuff like this where no one is saying anything? Or worse....people are in support of the abusive trainer?

                        Is that why she keeps reaching behind her ? Looks like a beautiful , intelligent horse who is soured now. I had to laugh as she decimated the arena fence. I hope she didn't hurt herself kicking though.

                        I wish she had dumped her rider. Just punishment.

                          Are you allowed to lead a horse into the ring in this sport?

                          (I realize this cough-trainer-cough is pretending to teach the horse something in this case, just asking a general question.)

                            Thanks for linking to the full video (not that it is pleasant to see), mmeqcenter

                            You can have someone lead the horse in but I'm thinking this horse has had a long history of issues going into the arena and that method probably doesn't work anymore for her.

                            Really mixed emotions watching this, I'm happy people around were appalled, called authorities, and took video. I wish it would've been possible to yank this lady off the horse but seemed really dangerous given the horse was so shut down, and clearly stressed.

                            But I can't understand how you sit on a horse and shock the crap out of it while everyone around you screams at you to stop and you just. keep. doing. it. Ughhh that poor poor mare. She needs a new job, and rider.

                                    Maybe I just don’t know enough about barrel racing, but is it common for a horse to not want to go do the pattern?
                                    If any of my horses new that they got to run as fast as possible in the arena I think it would be hard for them to NOT gallop out of that shoot.
                                    I haven’t ridden a horse who didn’t want to go in the ring to do the ‘fun’ thing since I was riding ponies.

                                        A handler may lead them out into the alley, then let them go. The horses that are really up for it are often bouncing in place to go, though some will jig or even walk until they are cued to go. So yeah, they can lead them a little way, but not all the way into the arena. In terms of being competitive, they probably wouldn't be able to generate as much speed if they didn't start running until they were in the arena.
