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.

  • Buck Brannaman film trailer.

    Came across this and thought that I'd share.

    I don't know much about him, but the trailer looks decent. Also? I want the side-passing horse.

          I'd like to see him working with a headshy stallion and a one-eyed horse that doesn't know that rope wiggles mean "back up".

              I actually have his book where he talks about his life , and also how he helped to make the movie the horse whisperer, and I liked it. i'm not a fan of Parelli and such but buck's book was pretty descent, and as cheesy as it sounds, I love the movie the horse whisperer.

              so i'm guessing this movie will be about his life?

                  Me too. Suffice to say that those of us who recognize true horsemanship when we see it know that Buck Brannaman is the real deal. IMO, he is the one who most 'gets it' what Tom Dorrance was trying to share with us about horses.

                      Ditto that Buck is the real deal. His true interest is the horse. He is one of the greats IMO. Many years age, he, George Morris and Rodney Jenkins gave a clinic in Buffalo which I attended. It was pre Natural Horsemanship faddy times, before Parelli and the others came along. We were blown away by Buck's methods and understanding, his kindness to the horses he worked with (and his willingness to criticize human handling when needed!) He is, BTW, a fantastic rider, soft, correct and effective.

                      I have since seen him in a couple of other situations, and my respect for him as a horseman has only grown.

                      I plan to see the film.

                        Definitely, anyone who has a chance to watch and learn from him, do! I have spectated at/observed a couple of his clinics when I was in Nebraska and was both awed and inspired, and learned a lot even from just watching. I would love to have the opportunity actually to participate in one with a horse. I know it would be very educational and fun, and probably humbling but in a good way, if that makes any sense.

                              Thanks for posting that, kookicat. I remember hearing a documentary had been made about Buck Brannaman, but hadn't seen anything else about it.

                              Anyone know if this has been shown anywhere other than film festivals? I'd love to see it.

                              Western -- I don't see many similarities between the Pat Parelli and Buck Brannaman, other than they both work with horses.

                              I knew who Buck Brannaman was before I ever heard of Pat Parelli. My first (and best) horse mentor was a big fan of Brannaman, Tom Dorrance and Ray Hunt.

                              FYI -- I am not anti-Parelli. I am anti-self-serving bullshit passed off as brilliant horsemanship, no matter who is serving it up.

                                Also, go see Buck, his website has his clinic schedule on it. Don't expect a circus or show though and I highly suggest riding correctly

                                  This. I would swing over hell on a rotten rope to attend one of his clinics.

                                    I looooved his book! Very much. I'm very excited to get to see this movie I didn't know they were making one, so thanks for posting this

                                      I've seen the film, and it is really, really well done. The objective was to show who and what Buck is and how he has overcome the legacy of his childhood and gone beyond recovering from it. It also showcases his work with horses, but mostly because that cannot be separated from who he is. It is also visually beautiful.

                                      Buck is the real deal. He sets a high standard and is adamant about being correct. But part of my personal experience of him is with his tremendous kindness in the face of legitimate fear. When I went into my first clinic with him, I was in a really bad place with a horse that was a last-minute sub for the one I was expecting to ride, and I was expecting to be cut to ribbons because of our issues. Instead, he saw that I was honestly trying and wasn't looking to make excuses, but was genuinely not in a good place, and his kindness to me and to my horse was something that I still struggle to deal with because it was so unexpected. It's not that he was soft about it--we had one really ugly moment at the end of the second day when he was pushing us through a bad spot. I did not sleep that night, but I came back the next day even more determined to make some changes, and he met me way more than half way; I honestly felt as though he structured the whole session that day for me and my horse (I've since learned that his clinics somehow always feel that way, even though you're riding in a group of 25 very different individuals). The result was life-changing for me and, especially, for the horse.

                                      About a month after the clinic, I was re-reading his "Believe" book and came across the part near the beginning where he mentions his understanding of legitimate fear, because of his childhood experiences, and his sympathy for it, and I just broke down in tears.

                                      As a clinician, he may not be everyone's cup of tea; you ride in large groups, and if you're doing well, he may say very little to you. He expects everyone to watch everything, no matter how "elementary" the issue may seem (it's how he deals with it that makes anything he does worth watching). Very frustrating to people who are used to arriving at a clinic, having their private 45 minutes, and then leaving. But his ability to do things with horses, and to articulate what he is doing, is well worth the time spent watching every moment--not to mention, mezmerizing in its rightness and success.

                                        I saw the movie at Sundance, it is excellent. Official movie web site if memory serves is www.buckthefilm.com. I haven't checked it recently but by now they may have distribution info.

                                        And yes, Buck is a real horseman. In fact I'm insanely jealous because a newbie rider it my barn is going to a clinic at his ranch this summer. Smart newbie IMO.

                                        Edited to reflect katy's kind correction below, thanks!
