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!

        Shoot, I even see horses jacked up and all freaky in the lead line classes, especially with Arabs and ASBs. They aren't going nutzo, but they are being "held" in the upside frame (ASBs) or their noses touching their chests (Arabs). It's disgusting.

        And don't even get me started on dog shows...I will never ever EVER buy a dog because of the abuse and horrible breeding practices that go on in so many breeds. I still get sick to my stomach when I think about the RSPCA undercover video and Lily's story. Rescue collies for me all the way!

          • Oh boy. I do not mean to point out the obvious - but lordy we sure do have some people standing "on point" here. Kinda like a well bred hound. You just can not convince them that every rustling leaf is not a vermin and they are near impossible to call off.

            And now I fully understand why they chose to step out to the isolating periphery of life- so they can stand and point. It is what they are bred to do.

            Give me a break - all "heads up" horses are not tortured nor inverted. Some are just freaking exuberant. They are happy and full of life.

            Down slow and low is not the only way a good horse will go. ANd hey! - when my geldings are out in the field romping playing and acting all jacked up for nothing - should I be looking in the leaves for the evil doers?????

                  Nah, they won't talk about that now that it's going to be an open meeting. It'll just be SSDD...I just hope that members and non-members who go will stand up and say ENOUGH'S ENOUGH.

                    • WAIT a DARN Minute:

                      did i read this right Preacher are you saying that the BL people want a NEW Breed of gaited horse,one that is only big lick how will they do that? so they will not fall under HR6388 because of the name TWH.
                      Mornin Aarpsso ~~~ Yep!...That their thinking…and what they are doing is going to all the BL orgs and trying to get them to sign on ~~~~ THIS IS the reason for the private meeting, they are trying to see if they can get the BL faction of TWHBEA to be influential enough to sign TWHBEA up into the new HIO..

                      Contrary to what Andrea says, if they still have the TWHBEA version of the meeting they will still talk about their mess, and hope no one will speak against them...but now that they know I am gonna be there they second think if they really wanna have it or not OR they will have the same meeting outside of TWHBEA where they can lock me out ~~~

                      they ain't worried bout no one else, talkin..they dismiss them when they do,...but me they have a difficult time to dismiss...AND I make enough sense (most times) that some scratch their heads and second think what they are thinking and doing

                      Now, let me draw the lines between a couple points I have been making over time…

                      The Executive Comm of TWHBEA is comprised mostly of Lickers, we yet have an org that the majority is still intimidated by the lickers, so the EC members & Lickers who have run out their allot time to be a board of director…but stay active until they can run again assign themselves into 9, 7, 6, 5, different committees,,…then they conspire to influence that committee and whatever it does then kinda push that comm towards the BL side of thinking…prevent FS people from getting a foot hold…they then close up these comm and say it is full…

                      Now they can say on the~~~ oh letsee~~~, “The Show Comm voted to do such and such”…applying this to all the comm…you can see how that would then shape the rules and direction of the whole org.

                      Now the apologist and the FS speculators here lending their view of the reason for making these meetings private are not here like I am, ~~~~ they don’t have their nose in everybody’s business like I do…they don’t drive down the road and smell what’s in the air, like driving pass MCDonalds’ ~~~~ they don’t hear the talk on the streets like I do~~~

                      I was already kicked out a very similar meeting if you remember when they said I was not invited and it was a meeting they did not want me in….this happened a couple months ago..remember>? had to be escorted out by the law!

                      This is being held by the same group…

                      So dear Ol Christy from the pressure I brought to bear by mobilizing the peoples…recognized they cannot use membership funds to hold exclusive meetings…

                      I got calls from several of my Licker friends telling me that “On this Nate, I am with you, and I have called up there to TWHBEA and told them so!”…I got several of those.

                      And yes, Hurleycane, I do expect to be right there when they open up them doors…and when they said there are gonna be special speakers,,,,

                      I requested to have a speaker’s spot..and told her and “please do not tell me that it is full!”

                      Yes, I am that obstruction, bump in the road, nails on the street, booger man under the bed ~~~ there to stand up and look them right in the eye and say “No you don’t!”

                      Now with that being said, I wanna address the 60-dayz-wonder ~~~ when a person starts a new job, moves to a new city and starts school or club….most of us would sit back, be quiet, get a good bit of time under our belt, establish the new guy/gal position before coming out directing other people, what they can say or do and tellin em to not speak what’s on their mind..that a bit rash, and presumptuous, I feel.

                      As far as being around what she calls the “Enemy” is also a bit harsh and elitist

                      ~~~ Most of you know my Daddy was a Holy Ghost & fire Preacher…. (this train of thought of hers has been so played out some 18 years ago, with my explanations and defense; but I’ll deal with one more time with her) )

                      As I kid I used to remember sitting in church with no one there but our family…and I always wondered why daddy would go through the whole service and preach as if there were 500 people there…just did not make any sense to me.

                      I understand now the state of mind and spirit of being real each and every time…I have LOTS of friends that used to be Lickers and some that still are…

                      Once again, there is a difference between people and what they do~~~ major difference…

                      Many of you here have jobs, occupations and callings serving other people..mine was an ER RN and every other department…

                      People came through me needing my help, if I were to have the same kinda attitude as Ms. Andrea, I would be standing at the door passing judgment on people whether they receive service or not.

                      In the 12 years ~~~ has not come down here, attended a licker show, walked through one of their barns, sit down and talk to em, it is at that point if one wanted to take a hard line on the issues, they could, and that would be based on personal experience..anything else is speculations, rumors, second–hand and supposition, and over the clothes line gossip like the women in the cartoon Snuffy Smith and until one has these personal experiences as your proof of the matter, walk softer, and quieter, ~~~ not saying to abandon the quest, just tone it down a bit…x

                      From the Flat Shod said, when we started driving here to TN from Cali and showing at these shows…I received more grief, criticism and negative opinions from the flat shod side than lickers…they could not understand the concept of working from within to impact the whole of the entity.

                      My whole life has been the “Raisin in the Sun!” being different and on the inside…I truly believed God prepared my way just to be able to stand firm in this business.

                      When I go to these meetings, there may be some FS people there, but few of them speak, there is a terrible aura of a black cloud and acrid smoke from the lickers side…

                      I have seen and heard FS people being jacked up by lickers to the point of tears out in the hallway or bathroom…and if I hear about it I get right all up in their grill and tell em right there and then wait for the meeting to reconvene and bring it up again with an admonition to everyone else to knock it off!

                      Things are changing, people see them as paper tigers, people are becoming more brazen in their approach to not accept the “Okie Doke” and speaking an voting their mind…but these are mainly the people that are right there in person.

                      A few years ago it was just Jennie and I at those TWHBEA meeting, just us, not another FS person to be found in the building…

                      We started our campaign to encouraging people to represent their state and come to the meetings, spent an inordinate amount to time doing this…it is now at the point that I truly believe that the power structure will shift this year, almost happened last December, scared the licker to death, tried to pass new bylaws trying to protect themselves,.

                      Such as; the Padded Horses can never be banned from TWHBEA!!! No way sucka! Majority rules and if majority says no more..then that’s what we got!

                      Another one was that board members take an oath to support the PH…No way AGAIN sucka``` you cannot not make a member support something they don’t want to ~~~

                      When you come down here Andrea, then you will have a fund of knowledge to work from based on experience. I offer to open up my home to you and you can stay here with my family…

                      But until that time…I would encourage you to just not be so ~~~ well, you know,

                      We have had dyed-in-the wool lickers ask Jennie and I how to work the Flat Shod horse, take lessons, ask our opinions on allot of things, encouraged them to come and they have to flat shod shows, and yes, I would sit right there with them answering questions and explaining things…people can and do change..

                      I can attest to that..I was one of the biggest heathens you could ever meet..but look at me now…a big ol’ chocolate teddy bear~~~ LOL!

                      I do not hate ~~~ just just think it should be amped down a bit//..and that's my opinion, others may not feel the same way and that's okay,

                      I KNOW! It just hit me...Dudes, wearing military medals they did not earn, especially combat medals....they even made it against the law to do that, yet, some still do!

                        From the Flat Shod said, when we started driving here to TN from Cali and showing at these shows…I received more grief, criticism and negative opinions from the flat shod side than lickers…they could not understand the concept of working from within to impact the whole of the entity.

                        My whole life has been the “Raisin in the Sun!” being different and on the inside…I truly believed God prepared my way just to be able to stand firm in this business.

                        When I go to these meetings, there may be some FS people there, but few of them speak, there is a terrible aura of a black cloud and acrid smoke from the lickers side…

                        I have seen and heard FS people being jacked up by lickers to the point of tears out in the hallway or bathroom…and if I hear about it I get right all up in their grill and tell em right there and then wait for the meeting to reconvene and bring it up again with an admonition to everyone else to knock it off!

                        Things are changing, people see them as paper tigers, people are becoming more brazen in their approach to not accept the “Okie Doke” and speaking an voting their mind…but these are mainly the people that are right there in person.

                        A few years ago it was just Jennie and I at those TWHBEA meeting, just us, not another FS person to be found in the building…

                        We started our campaign to encouraging people to represent their state and come to the meetings, spent an inordinate amount to time doing this…it is now at the point that I truly believe that the power structure will shift this year, almost happened last December, scared the licker to death, tried to pass new bylaws trying to protect themselves,.

                        Such as; the Padded Horses can never be banned from TWHBEA!!! No way sucka! Majority rules and if majority says no more..then that’s what we got!

                        Another one was that board members take an oath to support the PH…No way AGAIN sucka``` you cannot not make a member support something they don’t want to ~~~

                        When you come down here Andrea, then you will have a fund of knowledge to work from based on experience. I offer to open up my home to you and you can stay here with my family…

                        But until that time…I would encourage you to just not be so ~~~ well, you know,

                        We have had dyed-in-the wool lickers ask Jennie and I how to work the Flat Shod horse, take lessons, ask our opinions on allot of things, encouraged them to come and they have to flat shod shows, and yes, I would sit right there with them answering questions and explaining things…people can and do change..

                        I can attest to that..I was one of the biggest heathens you could ever meet..but look at me now…a big ol’ chocolate teddy bear~~~ LOL!

                        I do not hate ~~~ just just think it should be amped down a bit//..and that's my opinion, others may not feel the same way and that's okay,

                        I KNOW! It just hit me...Dudes, wearing military medals they did not earn, especially combat medals....they even made it against the law to do that, yet, some still do!

                                    • First i'd like to say,sometimes to get to the truth ya gotta go to the street/barn of the offender.if you have not spent time in the runway of a Big lick barn and seen the pain and suffering.than ya best not point a finger at those who have.

                                      and preacher you call those folks the BL faction while I call them the Shelbyville slime run by Mob boss Howard.it has been going on for yrs.those Twhbea commitees are handled by Howard's yes people.

                                      Now I don't know what the beef is between you and Ms Andrea but lets not air it on this thread PLEASE try and keep it about what is happening to the Tn walking horse.

                                      Thanks for sharing Preacher,i agree until the Flat Shod and trail riders Stand-up and Twhbea does what it claims (its a breed registry).and register the TWH only and tell DH to go pound sand.

                                        There as so many ways to know BL is wrong. Whether you were in the barns, attended a show, rehabbed an ex-licker, watched the "good" videos of performance horses, watched the JM horror show video, however you came to know about BL. Now it is out in the open for all to see and now it us under discussion by horsepeople of all walks of life. Now is the time to do something about it. Doesnt matter where you came from, just glad that you are stepping up to do something about it.

                                          Never, in 50+ years, has any segment but the "show" segment shown the slightest interest in dealing with the problems in the show ring. Every now and then you get an "expose'" (like the LIFE article of 1968 or the McConnell tape) that generates some interest but that interest generally comes from offended outsiders, not the non-show ring TWH industry.

                                          I wish the Preacher and other interested folks well.

                                          Long ago I learned that in a democracy you always get the government you deserve. The TWH industry rank and file has the government it/they deserve because no effective effort has been expended in any other direction.
