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!

        Cayleigh, I'm trying really hard to keep this train from completely derailing.
        Do you mind sharing more info on your horses? What are their ages and their breed? What did they do before they came to you? how often are they worked? How long have you been riding and what is your discipline (hunters? Western? Trail?)
        I know this BB has really knowledgable people. They'll give you good suggestions, just don't ask them to participate in any Parelli BS.

              Cakewalk on youtube, couldn't find it. Is that the one Pep had an argument with while at a clinic, the horse acted up and he and Linda acted like the horse was a man-eating beast, onliest the horse gave a half-hearted attempt to duke it out?? That one??

              ETA: Found it. Erm, maybe we did a disservice to Cayleigh by suggesting she find some PP forums after all. The vid of PP's handling the horse was worse than I remembered. Poor horse.

But frankly, you also need to start out with the proper horse(s), and 16 year old beginner + two skittish, nervous horses + no training is a recipe for disaster. Throw in Parelli and it's like adding nitroglycerin to the mix. If you're lucky, you'll just end up frustrating the horses and yourself and not get hurt badly.

                Find a trainer to properly evaluate your horses. Some horses are cut out to be beginner trail horses. Some are not. The best way to get a bombproof beginner trail horse is to buy bombproof beginner trail horse, just as the best way to get a jumper is to find one that already jumps. When you don't know what you're doing, it's hard to train a horse to do something it doesn't know how to do.

                So, anyway. Be realistic. You may need to sell one or both of the current horses and buy one that will work for your needs now. Not one that you think you can train into something in the future, but one that can be tolerant and patient and help you do what you want to do. Without getting hurt or smacked with carrot sticks or spending $5000 on random useless DVDs and equipment or looking at used sweaty breeches on eBay and wondering if they'll help you ride better.
                They are trained..... Kinda we just don't like their training. Where I was before, I was consider an expert rider and a knowledgable horse person so the horse I got was considered good for me. The other horse is really my dad but he hasn't been out in a while do I've been working with him. I didn't want my dad to get him because he was a extremely nervous horse (much better now) and my dad is a extreme beginner, but my dad liked his personality. Part of the reason we bought them is because we had a budget of 1000 for both horses, but we ended up going over that. My dads horse was 1000 with all of his tack, which ended up being crap or not fitting him at all. Now I am attached go Jack too, which I why I am trying to train him so when my dad starts riding again Jack will be ready.

                      ^ Catwalk.

                      A cakewalk doesn't sound bad though. We could smack everyone with carrot sticks to keep them moving. One must align themselves with the Cakeenality to become one with the cake, you know.

                        Cayleigh, there are much better trainers out there to follow than Parelli. You'll find that most of us here think Parelli is a joke, and a good percentage of people on CoTH are very experienced, knowledgeable horsepeople who have experienced many, many training methods.

                        Spend your money on real trainers with real experience and successes. Try these books for starters-Basic Training of the Young Horse by Reiner Klimke;Training Your Colt to Ride and Drive by Marilyn Childs, and I also like Bob Robinson's ​Show Your Horse.

                        There's some good videos out there as well. I rented a couple of Richard Shrake videos from my local library one time. I thought they were very good- and no hokey crap like Parelli likes to preach.

                            If you really believe in PP...

                            You should see him attempt to cut cattle. I have seen him multiple times and most shows he comes close to falling off! His horses have absolutely no idea what they are doing and it shows, but he is claiming to be an expert cutting horse trainer now. 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.
                            Second place is first loser.

                              Cayleigh, as a teenager it is not possible for you to be an expert on anything, least of all horses.
                              I'm almost three times your age, been riding since I was 4, and still ride at least 5 days a week - I'm not an expert! I hope I am still learning every day. Please don't label yourself yet. You will look back on this phase of your life and will be amazed at what you don't know you don't know.
                              Horses take a lifetime, don't put so much pressure on yourself.
                              Just some advice from someone too old to still be considered cool. (But I really was once).

                                    Cayleigh,

                                    Regardless of what level you were considered at your other barn as you've admitted you still have lots to learn, especially in basic horsemanship. Can your parents afford lessons for you?

                                    I also, know at one point you mentioned you might be moving your horses to your house is that still the case or are you going to continue to board?

                                      Ok so, Jack is a Tennessee Walker gelding. 7 years old, he was a show horse, now very good though, he was called Jack-in-the-box. His owner stopped ridding, let her barn use him for trails. Supposedly found out her barn was abusing him and moved him to where we were. She allowed my trainer to use him but because he was so nervous he was only ride once, by me. He is now a western trail horse. The other horse Apache is complicated. We don't really know anything g about him. We know we are al least his fourth owners. It seems he was passed around because everyone was scared of his speed. My trainer bought him from a family that only had him for three or four months and was told her was spotted saddle horse, which he clearly is not!! They said he was too fast and their horses couldn't keep up. My trainer trades an extremely slow ex-race horse for him. I was the only one that would ride him, everyone else was scared. I fell in love with him and eventually bought him a few months later. He is western and English and is 8 years old, we believe he is a quarter horse, Tennessee walker mix. He seems to get into a gait sometimes.

                                        I actually meant "not in training or lesson program currently." Lots of horses are ridden and trained for their entire lives and are not beginner suitable horses. Ever.

                                        You need to be taking lessons. On a appropriate horse. In person. With a real, live, knowledgeable trainer. Not one on DVD or You Tube. Take the $$ that you were going to spend on Parelli (which is not cheap) and apply it to the above.

                                          Spell check
                                          and brush up on that thing called grammar.

                                          English is my second language. your posts are head ache inducing!

                                          (I know I lost.. attacking grammar and spelling...)
                                          Haha sorry, I'm typing really fast and I'm on my iPod so it's hard to type plus I have to catch autocorrect mistakes.
