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!

  • Alisija Zabavska Granger - Anyone know anything about this Trainer?

    She is now in Texas, but supposedly she is from Lithuania. I know she did ride for Lithuania in the WEG endurance phase but was eliminated at second vet check for lameness. I am interested in info on her as a trainer.

    PM me if you have info.

    trainer for what?
    if I recall, she was a junior showjumper (national level) as well as has been involved in endurance for a fair bit of time.

        I read that and I am shocked. I don't care about the excuses, horse had known issues and this was not a way of solving them. And of it's true, "trainer" is a sick individual. Color me surprised this has not been discussed.

          What is even more surprising is the she is being promoted as a skilled trainer.

              Not quite buying the coincidence of this new thread topic just a couple of days after the Fugly post. Just sayin'.

              According to the latest in the Fugly comments, the owner of that poor horse has filed a lawsuit against Alisija Granger and Callegari. Good for that owner. If nothing else they'll have exposed her for what she is.

                  Go get em Sonesta!!! I've ridden and been in Houston for my entire life and I have never heard of her. She does not look like much of a rider and those Western Pleasure pics are just horrid. I cannot comment on the "dressage" as I am just not skilled enough to see it but that posing is horrible.

                      Only the "trainer" and perhaps other witnesses know what happened from beginning to end, but looking at the copious amounts of blood on that tree trunk, I just feel such sadness, shock and anger for what that poor horse had to endure during its final "training" session at the hands of this woman

                        Sonesta, I'm so glad that this woman has you in her corner. I'm already feeling better about the outcome.

                        May the eventual outcome of all of this bring the poor owner some sort of peace about the situation. My thoughts are with her, as I cannot imagine what it must be like to be in this situation.

                          The youtube video was also posted about a month ago. That is likely where and why the thread was originated.

                            If the circumstances are as stated, there is NO excuse whatsoever for the person responsible. NONE.

                            That person should NEVER ever handle another horse again.

                            This kind of crap needs to end for good.

                              What exactly are you reading? I can only see all the comments and have to piece together parts of the alleged story. Is there a certain post that tells the whole story in a cohesive fashion?

                                    I bumped it. The info was making the rounds elsewhere. If there hadn't already been a topic started I would have created one.

                                    Didn't want this one to slip by.

                                        I can't find where anyone who WITNESSED it says the horse was beaten? Am I missing something?

                                        I can believe the horse was tied to a tree, went around and was snubbed tight and beat it's head against the tree. Head wounds bleed a lot, horses have a lot of blood.

                                        Has anyone ever seen a horse that got tied tight panic? How hard and blindly they fling their heads? I have, it's frightening! Seen one where had the horse not been on the longer line he would have beat his head against the metal hitching post he was tied to! He was flipping out, flinging around, down, up, so close to hitting his head several times, thank God the rope had about 3 feet between him and the metal hitching post!

                                        I think it was ignorance on the trainers part to tie a horse with known tieing issues up, a sad tragic mistake.

                                        Now if someone can show me where witnesses have said the owner was whipping the horse, or if the neucropsy showed whip wounds (all it states is horse died from head trama) then we have a different story on our hands.

                                        But so far, I will admit though that I have probably overlooked it, it's all been people saying the horse was whipped because of all the blood, which could have come from one good hit against the tree in the horses blind panic to get free.
                                        I want a signature but I have nothing original to say except: "STHU and RIDE!!!
