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!

        Had a client's horse that did that all the time, when he was bored. And sometimes, when he wasn't. Like when he was halted at X in his dressage test at his second horse trials. Oy. We fell over, laughing, but the judge wasn't impressed - gave him crappy marks for submission. Clearly, a judge with no sense of humor.

            I can't find my sense of humor this morning.
            If you find it, please tell him to wait for me, I will be right back.

            I didn't think this was funny, not good for the horse, bad idea for the dog, not a safe place to be doing that, especially when things went South with the leadrope.

            We need to be careful what we teach, what we reinforce, because some of it is stuff we really don't want our animals to offer to us when we are not paying attention, or can be dangerous if the situation is not right.

            Anyone seen my sense of humor yet?

                  Probably hiding out with mine. The next time someone tells me how intelligent horses are, I'll just fire up that video.

                    If my horse and dog did that, I would probably laugh too. What I wouldn't do it put it on youtube!

                      My old border collie would do that, bring a horse to me, but she did it on command and to me, not just tugging here and there and dragging the horse without purpose.

                      It is interesting to watch how animals interact and in that sense, it is funny.
                      I consider those times good for a laugh, just don't want to keep repeating it and see if we can get by without something bad happening eventually.

                      Maybe it is the foggy, misty, dreary day that made my humor walk off today.

                        Only funny in tht we have a Boxer puppy identical to that one and she is a born clown and we adore her. Not sure where the danger is compared to some things we see and they seem used to each other. I'd not do it myself, since I cannot see the reasoning...except in a fire.

                          Yes, it could have ended badly...anytime a horse and a rope or reins are involved, there is that risk. However, there were people all around, and this horse obviously was happy to wait to be rescued from the leadrope, and all's well that ends well. Would I encourage people to do it? No. Would I have chuckled if it was a dog and horse I knew well and probably let them play for a moment? Yes. I have seen much more carefully managed situations end in tragedy...

                            I actually was pretty impressed with the horse- showed his good nature. I didn't find the video particularly funny- maybe it was because of that obnoxious cackle of a laugh that made me want to poke my eardrums.

                                All (except the dog and horse-which any of my horses would have stomped at first chance) are neurotic vices stemming from boredom or stress. Walk down any shed-row at the track and you'll see all these moves and more. They can be amusing to the casual observer but I too, don't usually see much humor in them either. Sorry, I need to lighten up I guess.

                                  True to an extent, but I wouldn't say "all".

                                  In some cases, a "vice" like those in the videos could be simply be anticipation of something like food, treats, etc. Both my horses have little mouthy routines, funny faces, etc. they like to exhibit when they know food is imminent, or attempting to beg a treat.

                                  I don't consider either of them stressed, bored, or neurotic in any way.

                                    Maybe not bad habits now and maybe never for many horses.
                                    For those horses with a tendency to obsessive behaviors, those can be a start we may not want to keep reinforcing.
                                    See the post about the horse that then was making faces inappropiatedly at the halt in his test.

                                    I didn't like the loose horse pulled around by the dog in a small parking lot full of trailers to run into and with no gate, where the horse could have panicked and ran out into the highway.

                                    Yes, once is funny, we need to lighten up.
                                    Just be aware of what we promote or train, because not all is harmless fun.

                                        That dog and horse video is totally cringe-worthy, endless possibilities for said activity to go FUBAR in a heartbeat.
