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!

  • Can You Ride as Well as Angelina Jolie and Shoot Too?

    Well, I'm impressed! And she does it sidesaddle! Don't miss the part at the end where she and the horse go into the trees.

    I like her attitude! "You can't blame the horse for having enough." (re:shotguns, helicopters, side saddle - and trying to knock her off under the trees!)

        Anyone with that much help and horses as nice as those could do what she's doing. I've never been a big fan, though, so maybe I'm just carrying bias.....

          While I probably couldn't, today, ride like her, or shoot as I did... I also have never stolen a married man from his wife. Yes he had a role in all that, but she's no paragon of 'what to be like', IMO

            If you had aaaalllll that help, surrounded by big men propping you up and helping to control your mount, camera angles making it look better than it is and a horse that can handle all that distraction?? I think you'd surprise yourself.

              Acutally, she exhibits a noticeable amount of feel and natural ease.

              As someone who trains both horses and their people I can tell you that not everyone can do that.

              So she has the lips, the eyes, the body, AND a natural feel for a horse. God hands out his favors unevenly, it is true.

                That was really cool. What movie is this that I have to add to my list of movies to see? As for all this, "oh if I had that kind of money" and "pah she stole somebody's man" Really? All that? Well I imagine if you reserve your praise for only those who are perfect AND poor you have a lot of praise left in your pocket. Heck I loved Paul Newman and never held it against him that he stole somebody's wife.

                  Yeah. I came to bury her (also not a big fan) but I only wish I had her balanced seat.

                      Angelina Jolie is such a rock star. I've been terribly impressed with her since I saw a "Making of Tomb Raiders" thing--she knocked out stunts in one or two takes that the STUNT DOUBLE was incapable of getting done. Doesn't surprise me at all that she can ride well.

                        I've always been a fan of hers, but yeah I thought she looked remarkably fluid up there, even when she was getting hit in the face with branches.

                          wow. I guess anyone with such athleticism can ride like her. The great majority of people don't though.

                            Hard to just say Angelina Jolie rides well without qualification?

                              I was impressed with her hands. It's not often you see someone who rides as infrequently as her with hands like that.
                              If i smell like peppermint, I gave my horse treats.
                              If I smell like shampoo, I gave my horse a bath.
                              If I smell like manure, I tripped.

                                  Back in the day we all did crazy stuff like this on our ponies while pretending to be chased by dragons, or bad guys, or whatever. Course we weren't firing guns but we did throw magnolia "thingies" as pretend grenades. Sometimes we were side saddle but usually not intentionally!! HAHA

                                    You can't "steal" somebody's man. Brad Pitt is a human being with a mind and will of his own, not a possession. It takes two to tango.

                                      While that's true, some women will entertain a physical relationship with a married man and some won't. The euphemism "stole her man" and variants simply refers to a woman who knowingly engages in a romantic relationship with a man who is tied, legally or otherwise, to another woman. It certainly does not remove responsibility from the man. It just speaks to the character of such a woman.

                                        I just don't see great riding here. And again, anyone who has video editors and a whole crew of assistants and trainers can be made to look pretty darn good in a montage-type video containing carefully chosen snippets of footage.
