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!

    Just think, a bunch of students paying uber bucks, learning to train and thinking it's okay to gall a colt. Seven out of ten ain't bad in their book. I can't think of ANY horse I've ever galled in well over half a century of riding/training. I had a friend with a mare who did gall and it turned out, the mare couldn't sweat. Can't remember that that is but the cinch wasn't lubed enough to move, just rubbed. These students will be the next bunch to hang a shingle and train. Hummmph....

    ETA: Also, I wonder how they (he included) figure how much a horse loses in weight that is okay.
    hey, love him or hate him...having people come do your work and pay big bucks while having others paying even more to bring the work...that is pretty good!

    but I am with you on the cinch thing. The number is way to high!

    • I find this thread really interesting, because I'm going with several friends next week to audit one of his clinics. I've seen him before several years ago, and at that time he was great.

      I agree that that lady sounds bonkers, and that his response was incredibly inappropriate (even though I can understand his frustration).

      I'll bring back a full report if anything dies during the clinic ;-)

          OMG, you certainly did put up with the whackos with whom you have to share the road.

          And you are right about the HO: She isn't very smart. It seems to me that she didn't think through diddly when she started posting about this on FB.... so, not thinking too hard about anything, she was surprised by chatter on the interwebz and surprised again when CA said "Cut it out."

            And the offer of a 14.1 horse whom he has ridden for 15 years (so an older horse) said to be worth $25K? It would have been another coup for Anderson. He could have one less to feed (or die on his place), do some PR and write the valuable horse off his taxes as a business expense.
            Just sat down to update this thread with a bowl of chocolate pudding and have to laugh at the unbelievably goofy response from CA on his own website -- ye gods! I have never fallen for these types of trainers, though if others take insight from them, that's all good.

            But man, I almost peed my pants just now picturing his farm with the "looky-lous and sticky beaks" (his words), bulls****ers and dying horses that we don't know what they died from but we know it wasn't his fault (?), and in the background a deadly feral catfight raging in the aisle....oh me oh my it's like a crazy Dr. Seuss natural horsemanship performance piece.

              Really, I was thinking of dock workers and supervisors, dispatchers and driver managers and over the top security guards. But, you're right, on the road are the whackos. But, I had four big airhorns, just this side of legal noise-wise, and I'm bigger than the other guy. Thankfully, most of my driving has been on interstates where I can just go.

                I have to say that jdeboer's website is really informative and interesting and seems to contain a lot more information up front than I was able to find at the Fenway website (which may have more in depth information behind links to offsite articles) Very nice site- and beautiful horses.
                Thanks for that link - I missed it. Always good to learn new things!

                  If I read it correctly, he was actually referring to Mindy when he talked about a 14.1 hand horse that he rode for 15 years. From what I have heard , and obviously I could be wrong, I think his signature horses are usually between the ages of 3 and 7 or something. I only remember that because that friend of him that sent a training horse there had considered buying a signature horse.

                      • Have read through this thread with some amusement. My main question is, what on earth is a "signature horse" and why is it worth $25,000? Has Clinton trained it to make the coffee? Do laundry? Clean the dishes? I could buy an FEI prospect for that money.

                        • The appropriate word for animals is NECROPSY! An autopsy is what is done on humans.

                              Not to be a fusspot, but I've never understood why the need to have a different word for humans. It's the same dang procedure; did someone think it somehow denigrated dead humans to use the same word?

                              This does not keep me up nights - just wondering.

                                  I always thought it was autopsy because one species was performing it on the same species. Necropsies are performed by one species on a different species. So if a horse did it to another horse it would be an autopsy!

                                        Crank away toward nasty people who have never done you a good turn... but CA's relationship to this kind of HO isn't that. He hasn't earned the right to get publicly pissy at this kind of owner yet.
                                        The thing is, these kind of people will just eat this up. They like to be treated as inferior, they like their idols to be cranky. It just makes him all the more untouchable.
