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!

      In all fairness, when regular posters disappear, I wonder.
      and it is concerning that we have gone past page one in a PP thread without him materializing and setting us gunsils straight.
      uttering PP is more prone to draw him out than his name, really!

        Maybe he just found greener pastures? You know, on one of those Parelli friendly forums.

          Twas the night before Christmas and all thru the stable,
          not a pony was stirring, not even old "Mabel"
          And all of a sudden arose such a clatter,
          I looked out the window to see what's the matter

          And there is the roundpen, with saavy rope atwirl,
          another new horse owner giving it a whirl.

          • I know of three Parelli trained horses who attacked their owners. These were not vicious horses before they were Parellified.

              That must have been the 'not so popular" 8th game that the horses decided to play.

                Just recently, I mixed it up with some 'trainer' on a FB page because someone had asked how long it takes to start a colt. This guy said he only does 90 days and won't take a horse for less time. He's a paint by numbers guy, it seems. I said I think a trainer should adapt and fit to the horse, not one size fits all because I've never had a colt who read the memo about 90 days. Actually, I've had a colt and a filly who within a week were riding 'broke', so much so, I thought they'd been started before and I thought the owners had lied to me. Nope, these young'uns were born broke. Then, I've had stonehead horses who all I can say is the lights were on but no one was home. Just dumber than a box of rocks and couldn't retain any training.
                One possible musing for the "closed-minded" trainer... there are a lot of people who will send their horses out for 90 days or whatever, then see the horse after a couple weeks and it looks quiet under saddle, so they pull the horse out early to save money. Then they have a horse that may or may not have some gaping holes in its training, and then something pops up at some point that exposes one of those holes, and all of a sudden the trainer is getting a bad rep. Also, that trainer may have rejected other clients because he thought he'd have a horse for 90 days when the owner takes him home after 30 instead. So I can understand a trainer wanting to require an owner to commit to a certain amount of time, regardless. I would hope that he'd be flexible if the horse really did progress very quickly, but he might also just really want to make sure that he's not rushing things.

                    I told her that I expect my clients to be able to catch their horse, lead it, tie it, groom and tack up, and ride out the gate, down the road and out on the trails, then come back and put the horse away safely without anybody getting hurt, and if they can do that, I'm not invested in by which means they managed to get there.

                    She thanked me and hung up.

                    I guess today it's more important to have a "brand" than to just be effective.

                          I can understand that. There is a little bit of back story but I understand what you're saying.

                            ...just to actually begin with something that might be helpful, why do you say that you "know your horses need it"?
                            Sushi and stout---hmph would've never combined those two. Is that an accident ("hmmm let's see what's on coth before I start dinner. Oooh trainwreck!! Gimme alcohol STAT!!!") or a planned pairing? Assuming the latter, stout served room temp? Reason I'm asking is that I'm always a little stumped when it comes to pairing sushi and drinks. SushiSamba restaurants have an amazing selection of sparkling saki, and that's a great combo. But since sparkling saki is not on my local grocer's shelves, what's left but Sapporo <snore>.

People say he says people dont need to where a helmet, well that's where common sense kicks in. Besides lots of people don't think you need to wear one. As for the prices, look at Clinton Anderson and most big trainers. People at my barn use Parelli and there horses are amazing. Some people think Natural Horsemanship is dumb because you have to force your horse to do things and they think you have to show your horse who's boss. Natural Horsemanship takes what they naturally do in the wild and had you do it so the horse understands you better. People say he trains horse to e his equal, which is not true. He is the leader but he does it in a friendly, more natural way be doesn't go straight to forcing a horse to do something he does it in the same order horses do naturally. Suggest, ask, tell, promise.

                                  After this last election, I'm ticked at the Republican party and am seriously considering turning Independent or Libertarian. That said, what is this about rich old white men? Ever heard of Mia Love, Tim Scott, Alan West and a whole host of non-whites?? All I'm concerned about is content of character and do not give a d*mn about skin color. Blacks or non-whites are not so fragile they have to be protected and hand-held and shown they have to depend on others. Good grief.

                                  Let the games begin!!!

                                  ETA: I guess I should just issue an apology beforehand, even though I really don't mean it, just to keep things civil. I haven't mastered the non-apology apology just yet. Yanno, the "I'm sorry you misunderstood what I'm saying" type. HA!!!

                                    You wouldn't have the first clue what middle class peoples' self interest is, should be, or how it could be best served. Of that I am sure.
