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 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?
      We are still planning on moving, we just aren't sure how soon it will be. Right now we can't afford lessons because of all the vet bills but I'm planning on asking for some for my birthday.

      • Hey, here's a thought, do you have horse 4-H around you somewhere?? You might be a bit old for it but they have great material to learn from and the instructors are usually pretty knowledgeable. Even if you go outside of 4-H, it's a great start.

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.
          When no one will ride a particular horse, especially a "trainer", that is a clue that it is not an appropriate horse for a beginner. Or a teenager. Or a beginner teenager. Just because you can stay on does not mean that you know what you're doing or are a good rider. And just because a horse is able to be ridden does not mean he is "trained".

          So you have two inappropriate horses who may or may not be trained at something. Wise up. Before you get hurt.

              I think there is one nearby. I know my friends at my barn are in one.

                I read the first post and thought to myself, "choo! choo!" And now, to read the thread.

                  He is riding his horses...DUH! The ppl on COTH are here because they have no horses and he is out riding that is why he is not here... LOL. Truth be told... I really do hope all is going ok for him.

                  This girl is a bit entertaining but stuck ... she needs one on one help with a live trainer not a TV/DVD

I do know people with a lot of people with horse knowledge. And for your information I am not a bored teen stirrin you guys up, I don't have time to stir you up for fun. I am just trying to get more information. That is all I am trying to do is be a better horse owner and get more info and people are blowing up at me.
                    I'm still working my way through this thread but you really need a trainer if you are not currently working with one before you either a) wind up with a neurotic mess of a horse and/or b) get hurt. Training a horse is not like training a dog...you can't do it from a book, the internet, or a DVD. Those can be useful tools and can help you understand things, but by no means should they be your primary source of information in training a horse, especially if you and the horse are inexperienced.

                    I am a lot older than you based on earlier posts, with quite a few years of horse experience, and I will be the first to admit I have no business training a horse on my own. My knowledge of these animals could fit into a thimble compared to the wealth of knowledge some of the people on this board have. It's nothing to be ashamed of. People are not blowing up at you to be mean - beneath our kidding around, there is concern for the well-being of you and your horse.

                    I may have missed it or maybe it's coming up, but what kind of horse are we talking about here? Is this Steady Eddie or a greenie?

                          This is a joke right? Happy Holidays and all that?

                          I can't believe I'm about to say this. I kinda miss 7.

                              As for the other thread goin' on here, I'm glad Cayleigh is on here asking for help. Help is help in the right way. If the 4-H folks can help her, all is well and good.

                              Another thought, with all the streaming and whateveryoucallit, couldn't she 'take a lesson' from someone over the internet?? Someone on her end could hold the camera, follow her and the 'instructor' could comment on this or that. It's not the same as in the flesh but from the sounds of it, better than the DVD's and bad info. Would that be covered by instructor insurance??

                              • Cayleigh,

                                You're young. You're very impressionable. Don't think it suits to be making fun of you. This is a board that is very much anti Parellli. Not because we like to hit our horses but because most of us are capable of handling our horses in a very capable manner through years and years of hardwork and understanding.

                                Anyone who withholds water as a training method is cruel in my opinion and yes Parelli advocates this method. For me the training methods can have no meaning if this is part of the protocol.

                                You need to broaden your horizons a little bit. There are many fabulous and amazing trainers out there that can help you with horses. Part of becoming a good horsewoman is working with many different horses and learning from them. Having different methods in your tool box to deal with any issues. You don't get this from one method.

                                Broaden your horizons. Look for other possibilities. I think you'll find lots of people get it right who don't follow Parelli.

                                • I would suggest spending money on lessons instead of Parelli. It would also be in your best interest to ride a horse suitable to your level, and there's no shame in being a beginner or admitting you're overhorsed.

                                  There are several reasons why many don't like Parelli. He showboats, his methods can cross into abusive handling, he's not particularly talented, and his methods can get beginners into trouble. The abusive handling can be seen in several videos, one of which involves his wife. Another aspect we dislike is the cult-like mentality some of his followers seem to have.
                                  The Parellis have one positive aspect: They are brilliant at marketing.

                                  • Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the board,
                                    Not a poster was typing, not even a word.
                                    The keyboards were sitting on the desk tops with care,
                                    In hopes that Off Topic day would soon be here.

                                    And all of a sudden, arose such a clatter,
                                    I clicked on the thread to see what's the matter.
                                    Over to off Topic, I flew like a flash,
                                    A thread on Parelli, someone losing more cash.

                                    The dude on the horse at the money making show,
                                    gave the illusion of logic, to replenish his dough.
                                    when what to my wondering eyes should appear.
                                    hordes of posters intent on making things clear.

                                    With no hesitation, so lively and quick.
                                    It's more of a trainwreck, than even Big Lick
                                    More rapid than vultures, his detractors they came,
                                    they posted and shouted, and called him bad names.

                                    Abuser, charlatan, he's a money grabbing guy,
                                    carrot sticks, and saavy ropes, he requires you buy.
                                    Now posters, I ask that you answer the call,
                                    and post away, post away, post away all.

                                    As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
                                    When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky
                                    and with growing derision, the trainwreck soon grew,
                                    with popcorn, and wine, and the occasional brew.

                                          when what to my wondering eyes should appear.
                                          hordes of posters intent on making things clear.

                                          With no hesitation, so lively and quick.
                                          It's more of a trainwreck, than even Big Lick
                                          More rapid than vultures, his detractors they came,
                                          they posted and shouted, and called him bad names.

                                          Abuser, charlatan, he's a money grabbing guy,
                                          carrot sticks, and saavy ropes, he requires you buy.
                                          Now posters, I ask that you answer the call,
                                          and post away, post away, post away all.

                                          As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
                                          When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky
                                          and with growing derision, the trainwreck soon grew,
                                          with popcorn, and wine, and the occasional brew.


                                          To be cont...
                                          Wow again!

                                          Awesome.

                                          That Christmas poem will end a classic.
