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!

      Are we 100% sure these aren't a joke? Like a great big internet spoof? They are soooooo wrong it is a bit scary.

      Though, in retrospect...there are people at my boarding facility who do things like this. *shudder*

      Unfortunately, Sarah and Rowdy were registered with the Washington State Horsesman, and I've seen some of that organization's shows from the time the videos were made. They used to put them on at the barn my h/j trainer was at. They were essentially 'winglish'.

      At the time these videos were made, Sarah was pretty much par for the course. And she wasn't the only one. Unfortunately, her level of knowledge, especially about jumping, was pretty common at that time, from what I could see.
      The truth is always in the middle.


      • Oh. Emm. Gee. That was hysterical, I think I wet my Depends.
        When you noted Jazz' Gluteus Maximus she gave you a look that said 'WTF happened to you?!'... then the horse in the background at the end who sounded like he was laughing at you're, 'well the saddle is on backwards sans the beginner belt, so we're off' was perfect!
        Ok now we want to see you canter those fences on your Nationals pony!

        • My favorite part was "8 hands is about 16.3 1/2. So 8 hands is pretty much the same thing as 16.3 1/2."

            It's the new math.


            • Skip - That spoof was PRICELESS!! I loved the other horse laughing at the end!

              This is the first I have seen of the splendid Sara Stetner, tho I have read references, I only have one thing to say... HOLY CHEESUS!!!!!!!!!

              I the "hand gallop" vid, I think that was a lame tranter. It looked like he didn't want to move that white back leg, poor bugger

                She got a new horse too, double eek. Hope she's learned how to put boots on by now so she doesn't cripple that one up too.
                If you go to the website of the clinic, she is not a Vet Tech as she put on her Facebook, but a Vet Assistant. BIG difference.

                  • Skip913,

                    Like someoone else said, oh em geeee. I watched your video three times already. SO funny! You're a natural actress - I'd have cracked up long before the "16.3 1/2 is about the same as 8 hands" but I for sure wouldn't have gotten through that part. Bravo, woman. Bravo!

                      • I think we have all been punked!!! There is no way anyone can be that clueless!!!! I thought of the splint video as I was putting the shin splint boots on my horse yesterday. You see we ride in western events so he has a greater risk of shin splints than he would if we evented.

                        I thought about it and decided that since I also have shin splints, if he were to get them we would be in better balance since both of us would have them. What do ya'll think?


                        • lol

                          it totally depends on whether he is left or right handed. duh.

                          • Dear Jazz's Mom,

                            I know that you must be so busy getting Jazz ready for the Small Pony Finals at the end of the year. No doubt that she is showing you many happy ears.

                            Thanks to your vid, I have seen the error of my wicked ways and I abuse my horse no more.

                            Please, PLEEEEZE make more vids - for the sake of the horses that will benefit from your awsome EXPERTise. The other horse forum I go to is howling for more. As one of the commenters said on YT, "Pure commic gold."

                            Questiion, if you don't mind. It turns out that my horse is neither left or right-hoofed; he's ambidextrous and speshul. Should I put shin spint boots on both fronts or maybe one on front and the other on the diagonal back so he feels balanced?


                            • Resurrecting the Sarah Stetner thread!! Does anyone have a working link to any of her orginal videos?! I'm trying to show the amazingness to my friend and none of them work.

                                • Well, doesn't everybody know that shin splints can be prevented by using splint boots. That the padded part faces forward, and the straps face forward ... duh.

                                          The one in post #175 is still available. The spoof in post #177 is wonderful.
