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!

  • Which dog with which horse/discipline

    Have you ever noticed certain dog breeds with certain horse breeds/disciplines?

    I had noticed it to some extent, seen a few Arab people liking the Saluki's(sp).

    There were some "Hunt types" with Corgi's.

    Ah, maybe its just me.

    See lots of cattle dogs, hounds and boarder collies at working western horse events.

    Lots of Jack Russell Terriers at hunter jumper events

    Lots of bigger dogs like rhodesian ridgebacks at eventing outings.

    And of course a mix of everything inbetween.

      IME I see a lot of arab people with poodles

      One year I went to rolex dogs seemed to show up by the day. Ie dressage days were corgi days, cross was JRT day.. (I didn't stay for the show jumping that year)

      Traditionally I would think JRTs would go with hunt types. I have JRTs but I am primarily a dressage person. BUT I do love hunting! After all the JRT was developed to go to ground after foxes (when the hounds chased one to a den and it wouldn't bolt)

        At Saddlebred shows there are lots of small terriers- Jack Russell, Rat, Toy Fox, etc. Also Corgis and Aussies. But I also know Keeshond, Golden Retrievers, Labrador Retrievers, Whippets, Shih Tzus, Boston Terriers, Poodles, Swiss Mountain Dogs, Bulldogs, and whole lot of other things!

              I find a lot of my Arab horse friends are suckers for the fat ugly medically compromised mutt. We all have lots of those running around our shows! And we are famous for old slow dogs wandering around unsupervised but these dogs are old pros at the horse show scene. They never bother anyone or each other and they seem to just stick around close enough to their owners that no one ever loses a dog and the dog always ends up back at the stalls along with the barn gang of choice, no probs! We can identify which trainers are at a show based on what old dog is wandering around the grounds.

                Ugh, loose dogs at horse shows. My Jack Russell/Miniature Poodle cross was attacked by another trainer's German Shepherd at an Arab show. My dog was tied to my tack trunk while I was warming up a horse for a class, the other dog was loose. My dog has been very territorial/defensive when tied up ever since that incident.

                  I'm a trail rider, and most of the people I ride with who own dogs tend to keep to the smaller shepherds and cattle dogs wth short coats and high stamina. They want dogs that can keep up with the horses over distance, but small enough to heft into the saddle for a bit if they need a break.

                  I used to bring my Rottie out on trail with me, and occasionally borrowed my parents' Lab/Dane mix for company after my Rottie passed away.

                  Some of the women have little "accessory" dogs like Chihuahuas and Dachshunds, which they never actually ride with. They just keep the dog in the trailer (with a/c) back at the campsite while everyone goes out for the day. I really have no use for dogs like that. They're cute. . .but they're barely big enough to even qualify as a lap-warmer.

                    I second this ugh. I can't imagine attending a show that allows loose dogs. All the shows I attend require that dogs are on leash, if they are allowed at all.

                    I do think dog breeds come and go into fashion. I've seen lots of Austrailian shephards lately and plenty of mutts that have some shepard in them. And of course, the JRT seems to be everywhere.

                      Oh I agree. Loose dogs at a show throw turds in the face of the leash rule. Trouble with the loose dogs at our shows is that they usually belong to show management! Or the big money trainers. And the show management isn't going to peeve off the big money trainers over a leash rule because they need the money the trainer brings to the show.

                      Ya want to know what I hate worse than loose dogs at a show? Barking dogs. Dogs unattended at the stalls that won't shut up. I know folks bring dogs to shows for many reasons but if your dog is woofing his brains out while alone at the stalls, make different arrangements so the rest of us don't go batty listening to fido going batty.

                        Never seen a saluki at an Arab show but seen lots of others with no one breed standing out. I love them all, but hate loose ones!
