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!

    Looked up hobble training this morning. Most of the opinions were of the 'Don't ever leave the horse unattended' type, especially if it were a high strung horse or in hobble training.

    The trainer needs to assist the horse in lifting its head quickly if it falls so it doesn't hit its nose on the ground, and if the horse panics, it could cause temporary and permanent injury to itself very quickly.

    Not for me nor any horse of mine...

          Maybe the magical horse was already hobble trained so these worries do not apply.

          Lots and lots and lots of horses are hobble trained, it is not a dramatic horrible thing.

            How do we even know for sure that it died while being hobbled? This story is so sketchy that I don't necessarily believe any report I've heard so far.

              I was wondering if there was any evidence this horse was even AT his farm.

              And it could be a very good skill for a horse to have. Just like everything else, there are ways to hobble train that is not tramatic for the horse.

                I have a feeling this majikal horse never existed...

                Most of the pictures she posts are clearly of other peoples horses and her captions are all about her horses... it's an odd situation for sure. I wonder if CA will respond in some way?

                    I've hobble trained several horses (more than 3) and have never had one actually panic. They stand there thinking they are cemented to the ground and graze around them and eventually they either hop or take little baby steps to move around. I had a mare on a pack trip who was hobbled take little tiny baby steps all the way across a large meadow to sniff noses with another horse, squeal, and take little baby steps all the way back to where she started.

                    This woman is definitely out there. However, if it's not true, is there a response from CA?

                        The FB page was updated again this morning with a photo of a gleaming blue black stallion in a dreamy green clover pasture. There is NO WAY that this is the same horse as the faded bay black with the hoof boot eating from a hay pile in a dry lot... not in a former home... not in another life- it's not the same horse. Her website farm pictures show a dry lot style flat ranch with pipe fencing ajacent to a packed full of houses subdivision. And I say that as the owner of a black horse who does change colors during the year. That heavily feathered stallion is not the same as the meagerly feathered horse with the white heel bulb on his right hind, and his mane falls to the wrong side, and it's surely not the same forelock... not ever. The horse getting the tummy scratch is also not the same horse, nor is the leggy one with his mane in braids trotting by the capped t posts remotely resembling the faded horse with his foot booted.

                        Who is the lady doing the belly scratch and who is the purple fairy?

                        Why would you post pictures of other horses without acknowledgment as you announce the death of your own?

                        Why, if you have a majikal pasture pet who can't be ridden- is the only marked photo of him on your website a head down hay eating picture? Couldn't we at least braid his mane full of fairy flowers and get a few snaps of him playing dress up? What else is there to do but play my little pony with him?

                        I also noticed that there is some very questionable stuff going on last year with the little black foal and white percheron mare who had to go to the vet in an emergency- I think someone who knows Lippizans called foul.

                          Looking back through her posts, she stated (before sending her horse to CA) that her vet warned her the training program was so tough her horse may come back hairless.......WTF?

                              Another thing, would CA allow Bigblackhorse to be buried on his place?? And another, free training? I would think giving back the training fees would be the best deal.

                              CA is in Stephenville, I've seen his place when I drove by. Maybe he does, but I don't think he has the room for a burial spot unless he has a whole lotta pasture out back. His place is IN Stephenville, best I can remember. Maybe another pasture somewhere??

                                I looked at krayzee laydee's twitter and no mention of her magikal pony's passing. And she's tweeted recently. My BS meter is way off the charts with this whackadoo.

                                  Hobble training could save your horses life. My mare, when I used to board, got tangled in some old barbed wire that was in a tree line (in the ground, we didn't know it was there) and she just stood there, we don't know for how long. The BO went out to feed and she didn't come up and he was instantly worried as she is usually first. He grabbed a flashlight and went out to find her. She was standing there quietly with a stink face ("About TIME you got her! Now cut me loose so I can EAT damn it!") and he ran back to the barn, got the clippers and ran back. She stood there stock still while he uncut the wire from around her front legs (it was a coil).

                                  She had only a few superficial cuts, called the vet anyway, said she was fine and lucky.

                                  But yea back to the topic, the facebook page SCREAMS wack-a-doo with all the fairy postings and pictures of horses that aren't hers. On her actual webpage, the horse that died was listed as for sale 12k.

                                    I guess some of us teach or horse verbal commands like "stand" and "back" and "Good girl". I knew a TWH that got tangled in wire and stood like a pro while she was clipped out of a trail riding situation but she knew the word 'stand' and was a quiet horse to begin with.

                                    Unfortunate incident but surely hobbling and walking away has some merit or Clinton A wouldn't be so well respected I'm sure... Just not my cup of tea (hobbling), so to speak.
