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!

      I watched six minutes and gave up. The guy is extremely irritating. Did you read some of his responses to the comments? What a tool.

        Helmets are not used much out there

        I can't watch the video here at home on dial up.

        I recently was on a group trail ride of about 150 people. I saw 5 helmets. One was on a under 18 girl (ride rule was helmets for under 18). One was on me. The other 3 were on other adults. The Mounted Sheriff patrol riders did not wear helmets. When I see riders anywhere around here, never are there helmets.
        There is no such thing as "bad" horsemanship or "good" horsemanship. There is simply Horsemanship or the absence thereof.

          Ok, in full disclosure, and flame suit zipped, I never wear a helmet when I ride. I have my own reasons that have nothing to do with my hair, looking cool etc....

          However, I think this guy is really stupid! I would never advocate someone not to wear one! He does not have any valid points as to why helmets are dangerous! He is talking off the hip and really sounds like an idiot! I also did not appreciate the way he spoke to people that commented on his video and the language he used. I would write this guy off as crazy and ignore him!

            He is really a role model for maturity....

            Having met the man you caused the German governing body for racing to implement mandatory helmets on all tracks in Germany, buckled from the moment the jockey is mounted, all I can say is: What a tool!

                      I can perfectly understand why the man is against helmets.

                      For the same reason I'm against large sized bras...ain't got nothing to put in them.



                      I got a giggle out of this one:
                      http://www.youtube.com/user/horseawa...49/KTBE5K-Dbfk

                      Yep, men have the warrior gene. Oh wait, should that be Warrior Gene with caps? And warriors are better with horses. For some reason he can't seem to explain. But Lord knows if I want my horses to be calm, relaxed and behaved...I always charge at them waving a sword with a rebel yell. Have to show those ponies who the warrior is and who the...ummm...sh*t-machine is?

                      So if I make a comparison like he does...if you do not have the Ninja Gene you cannot have any cattle.

                      I hope you're reading this people, this is some good information here! Unless you can sneak into Quantico without anyone noticing whilst wearing black pajamas...do not even think of milking a cow! EVER!

                      So what do you call that useless flap of skin found at the end of a penis?

                            I watched some of his videos ages ago, so it was fun to revisit him here.

                            I do enjoy his jollity; sincere laughter at funny stuff the horses/pets do; that's always a sign of emotional balance. It's the humorless ones that you need to beware of. Plus, he's genuinely affectionate with his horses, & they love it.

                            I also enjoy the true reading he has of horses, evidenced here by safely walking among his herd of 3 while they're eating, {& explaining what's happening with them in the process), likewise what the palomino was up to when it approached him.

                            Re: helmets, his is correct that people tend to derive a false sense of security from helmets, so to warn people to do nothing that they wouldn't do helmetless is helpful.

                            That said, he rather downplays the many lives saved/damage prevented from the wearing of helmets, & the many deaths/crippled states that could've been prevented from their wearing.

                            He also has a video of him crawling around a horse's back legs/under belly, point being how safe that is, when anyone should know that a horsefly sting could end that gig instantly. So, I kinda have a love/hate going on the guy.

                              what am I saying, he's got THE WARRIOR GENE!!!!!

                              what a tool....

                                  That is an utterly false and truly stupid thing to say. Parelli much?

                                    He even has a website where you can learn "Horseman Tips"
                                    Michael: Seems the people who burned me want me for a job.
                                    Sam: A job? Does it pay?
                                    Michael: Nah, it's more of a "we'll kill you if you don't do it" type of thing.
                                    Sam: Oh. I've never liked those.

                                      tabulah, do you understand what I mean? Another way to say it, excluding the double negative, is, "Only do with a helmet what you'd do without one."

                                      You must've misunderstood, because I'm not with Parelli here; I'm pro-helmet.

                                      AND I take the point from those like Parelli & RG that one must guard against a false sense of security & therefore taking risks beyond what one'd do helmetless.

                                        I'm a little unclear on what things one would do with a helmet that one wouldn't do without a helmet. Riding is riding. The goal is to stay on board and control the horse.
