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!

    There is a video story in the link.

    Gemma the pony rescued from 70-foot ravine



    by KING 5 News


    Animal rescuers freed a fjord pony who apparently slid down a 70 foot ravine in Redmond and spent several days trapped.

    Their rescue of 4-year-old Gemma was challenged by the steepness of the terrain and heavy brush.

    The rescue took place in the 24000 block of 115th Street near the Saddle Rock Stables.

    The stable owner said the pony was brought to the stable for training. Gemma was described as being a bit of an "escape artist" and got out of her stall.

    Gemma had been missing since Sunday. It's believed she was walking around an embankment and slid down into the ravine. A spokesperson for the Washington State Animal Response Team said Gemma appeared to be in good health and had water and hay. She was given a painkiller for some bruising.

    Rescuers used a fire hose to wrap around the 800 pound horse and pull her up to a ledge. She was walked out from there.

    To make this story even more remarkable, it was an 'animal communicator' that led searchers to Gemma. Joan Ranquet was contacted by Gemma's former owners, and says after seeing only a picture of Gemma, she was able to make a connection and feel where the horse was.

    “I connected with the horse, and the most important sense I got was the sound of rushing water," said Ranquet. "I didn’t know if it was rushing water or a freeway, just a very loud, loud sound.”

    This might sound a little crazy, but Saddle Rock Stables owner Barbara Linstedt says once she heard from Joan, she was able to find Gemma within five minutes.

    Thirty responders from King County Search and Rescue helped with the rescue.

    Even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while.

    Great they found the horse though. Had to be scary for the owners and the poor horse.

      That's a cool story. Cute pony!
      But he thought, "This procession has got to go on." So he walked more proudly than ever, as his noblemen held high the train that wasn't there at all. H.C.Anderson

        A Fjord! (A particularly slim Fjord, at that!) I'm not a "believer," but that was a sweet, interesting story.

          She was not that slim when her picture was on Craigslist over the weekend. So glad she was found, however it happened, and that she was not stolen which is what I feared after seeing the ad.

            I thought a friend went to the farm from whence the horse disappeared, noted a hole in the hedge that was the 'fence' of one side and located the pony that way? I read about this the other day and no animal communicator was mentioned, just the friend who could not believe that the BOs hadn't notice the pony sized hole in the shrubbery where Fjord had blasted through.

              The owner said she had looked every where. Judging by the pictures if you were just sort of looking, the pony would have been really hard to spot.
              I heard the owner's husband - the skeptic - was the one that followed what the animal communicator said. He followed the water down until he found her.

                She definitely lost some weight.

                  It's a scary thing when a pony escapes in a real wooded area.

                  Glad this communicator was better than the one my friend contacted who told her that her missing OLD dog was 'enjoying a last fling of freedom' while she was in fact lying dehydrated in a ditch not far from the house.

                    I like how she says its rushing water OR a freeway. So.... basically the pony is either near a road or some body of water. That narrows it down

                      I call "shenanigans."

                      Remember, too, that Disney did not get rich with "Realityland" but did with "Fantasyland." So-called "animal communicators" have learned this lesson well.

                          Interesting - the animal communicator that was called re: Bella, the missing mare in Suffolk, VA was completely off.

                          as animal communicator says she is by a body of water her mouth is injured and legs bleeding but staying close to a goat farm
                          Bella was found by someone's boyfriend who walked down the fire lane they had been going down all day. He went into a clearing and there she was and he walked her out. She has lots of ticks, scratches, some thorns and was given electrolytes for dehydration.

                          So . . . not even close.

                            My favorite animal communicator story involved a lost dog in an urban neighborhood, and this reading took place 'real time' on a horse board. The dog's owner posted that the dog had gotten out of the house! OMG OMG and another poster offered to 'look into it'....she said that the dog was 'wandering under streetlights, lost but not worried, and within a mile or so, just enjoying her freedom'. She went on to describe alleys, interesting sights, etc

                            Then the dog was found curled up asleep in another dog's crate. In the house. Was never lost in the first place
