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!

  • Quarter Horses...I LOVE 'em, but they frequently have a little buck in them while warming up. I love my Arabians too...they don't buck (although they can do a joyful kick-out in the back when they start to canter on the trail) (but I don't call that a buck...their head never goes down lol)

      Love the way my appy mare bucks. First she tells me "in a minute I'm going to buck if you don't let me do this or that". Then in a minute her front feet go off the ground a foot or so, then the back feet a foot or so. It's kinda like being in a rocking chair. Makes me laugh.

      My other horse on the other hand, breed unknown but paso people seem to think he is a paso although he doesn't gait WOW.

      Waaay up in the air and then he is no longer there as you plummet to the ground.
      After two times of that I no longer ride him. Seventy two year old bones have no business hitting the ground that hard.

      • Just going to chime in to say that after many years of starting Arabians under saddle, I will agree that it is rare for them to buck, but...... two of the very worst falls I've ever had were from an Arabian and a Half-Arabian who broke in half like top grade rodeo stock. So, they surely CAN buck.

        • I did hear that the Nez Pearce and Soux were such fierce fighters as they rode Appaloosas to the wars and they were p'd off by the time they got the buck out of them

          Calgary Exhibition and Stampede Ranch breed bucking horses and they say..anything that bucks with style crossed with Clydesdale/TB

            LOL this made me laugh. I just bought a 4 yr old quiet QH filly. I still got some buckaroo left in me if needed (so far, whew, I haven't). With a little luck she will be the one I ride into my seventies. Sure want to be hanging up my rodeo skills by then too

            • Overall, the worst breed for me, bucking and acting up has been Paints. My daughters and I have analyzed WHY we've had such trouble with Paints. Doesn't matter the color, could be BS, as long as the designation was "Paint", we had trouble with it. It got to the point we avoided buying them for resale. I mean bucked off, stepped on, kicked at, generally PITA's. In all the years, there was ONE Paint who made the grade and I sold him to a banker's wife. She rode him for years on their mini-ranch. But the others? Nope, never worked out.

                Those horses safe for us older people are worth their weight in gold.
                My best riding buddy just gave up riding because her horse, while a good boy, will whirl and try to bolt if he comes up on something on the trail that scares him. At seventy five she has decided it's not worth the risk to continue to ride.
                Really sad.

                • I used to own a quarter horse paint mare that should have been in the rodeo. She bucked me off so hard she almost sent me sailing over a 5' fence. A friend recommended a gaited horse, told me gaited horses can't buck. Let me tell you a gaited horse can buck just like a quarter horse.
                  Moving on doesn't mean you forget about things. It just means you have to accept what happended and continue living.

                  • By far the most votes on this thread are for QHs, paints, stock horse types. All of which have very wide shoulders, backs, oh heck they tend to be rather wide. Makes me wonder if a lot of that is due to saddle fit issues? My personal experience has been that my QH have been the truly difficult ones to fit for just that reason.

                      Yerno, that is a thought. I have been thinking back over the years but still, didn't have that much trouble with Apps or QH's, very little in fact, compared to the Paints. I may have been TroublewithPainthorses central for all I know.

                      • Saddle fit is certainly food for thought. Especially 'back in the day.'

                        But I can tell you that when my little mare got me off w/NFR quality moves (hey, I MADE the 8 seconds but she didn't stop!), the saddle fit was fine, the sequence was initiated by a bee sting and escalated because well, she'd never bucked under saddle before, and so it scared her, so she bucked harder.

                        She's never offered that buck under saddle since- at most, a crow hop when she gets stung and for some reason she's a magnet for stinging insects so it happens several times a year. But when turned out, she does wow the crowd with her moves.

                        • Lol seems that everyone is saying buckskin QH or a pony, sadly that's exactly what I own, a buckskin quarter pony! He's not all that bad though. He'll only buck when trying to get a lead change now and then. He used to do them when he was younger and I asked more of him on the flat, but now he just knows his job and I rarely have problems with his legs flying up.
