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!

    Groom to trainer: "Where's the glamour? You promised me glamour!"

    Comment


    • OP- here are my thoughts. If you can learn a technique or 2 from Parelli, Chris Cox, the man on the moon, that helps you and your horse (without breaking the $$ bank), go for it.(and I am the first to scoff at "Parelli", due to the whole commercialism they have created and some things are just damned ridiculous).

      "Natural" horsemanship has really been given a bad rap by people who are out to exploit those seeking help. I remember when "natural" referred to "He/She is a natural with horses", when it meant people, intuitively, knew how to read horses body language and engage them in desired behaviors (and not dancing around an indoor waving a whip).

      Don't spend tons of money. If you can hook up with some trainers, go for it. Maybe even an old mare like myself, who would love some barn help. They are everywhere. They can help you with some tricks and tips. Maybe some are Parelli-like, some not.

      My point is, you don't have to spend a fortune, and try not to get caught up in a line of BS. I think you can learn something from everyone with whom you come into contact.

Cutting is one place where you have to be real partners and know and trust your horse, and vice versa. Not a place you can fake it, and believe me he shows his true colors there. You ought to see the idiot saddle he rides in. I've taken to videoing some of his rides and when he finally hits the dirt (he has had to grab leather multiple times), I am posting it on youtube.

        I highly recommend you get some real help from a real trainer before you or your dad (or your horses) get hurt. JMHO.
        I had to go back and comment on this. I saw a Parelli show on RFDtv. Pat was going to show us all how to cut cattle. He never did get a steer separated and the show turned into something else all together.

        I also saw a video that featured a student of Linda's longeing her horse while waiting for LP to come and ride with her. The horse suddenly kicked out and got the girl on the hand. You could tell she was shaken but had no idea how to react (sorry, but any horse of mine who raised a hoof in my direction would soon learn that it was unacceptable). She mentioned it to Linda when she showed up and Linda shrugged and told her something to the effect "stay out of the way". I wish I could find it.

        FLF what's your link to the cutting video?

            Merry Christmas from the warmbloods! We don't bash parelli because we don't know much about training programs. With any training program, it's always do this, do that, jump this, piaffe, etc. Never "innovate," "be creative," "buck after clearing jump" or "spook." All those training programs stifle our creativity.

            OP, we're sorry people took over your thread. Have a Merry Christmas.
            I would go galloping around a field any time with the "big warmbloods" with my Morgan. However, he would just hang out and wait until they got back! Yes, he is funny that way.

                • OP, your best option would probably be to find a trainer near you to come out and work with youAND your horse.
                  Every horse is different, and while bits and pieces can be taken from SOME 'training systems' you would be far better off with a hands on trainer teaching both of you.
                  Also, a good trainer that can come to you can see and address other issues, what you feed, what kind of turnout situation, how you currently work with your horse, confidence, knowledge, etc. etc. and find what works for your situation.
                  Best of luck.

                              As for Cayleigh, we found another thread she started after this one, which made us a little suspicious that she might be, gasp, a troll. When a "wild animal" gets "ahold" of her horse's fly mask, well........and no one buys a fly mask in December (unless there's a major sale somewhere) unless she lives in Florida or the western desert.

                              We've never seen a raccoon or fox walking around the pasture with one of our fly masks we've rubbed off.

                                That happened at the end of summer, and I don't know what else could have done it, the marks went like marks from rubbing it off or another horse pulling it and it wasnt the barn dog. And I bought a flymask in December to protect him eyes from the sun because he can get eye problems. I just posted a questions..... didn't know that made me a troll......

                                      Well actually I do. One of mine wears a mask day and night year round so I might buy a replacement any month of the year. I'm in Ga.
