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!

      Gee, what looked scary was the horse going over him and where it's front feet landed-yikes!

        I was thinking the same thing. For sure, the horse caught him with his back legs as he hit the ground. That's never good. Loved how the other actor on "Silver" looked back at him as he fell off, probably thinking, "Oh, man, now we have to do this again!"

        The other clip of the Cowboy Boot Camp was cute. I'll give those guys some credit for the way they have to tackle new skills for different movies. That has to be a pretty big challenge sometimes.

        And to be fair, if Depp had gotten seriously hurt, that would have thrown a giant wrench in the works for a big production like that. So it's no wonder it seemed newsworthy. Especially now as they're trying to drum up interest before the movie comes out. Not to mention the fear that something could have happened to that face!

        I will say it's one of the few movies I plan to see this year. I still remember watching the reruns of the tv show when I was a kid. When I run across an episode now, it's funny to see how much simpler times were then as far as what constituted an action show on tv.

          He held onto to the left rain as he went down ( I stopped the video), and that's what made the horse "jump" over him. I suspect it would have been a cleaner tumble off, no horse involvement if he'd just let go of the reins.
          I loved the camp training.

            He fell from a galloping horse over not flat ground and we have no idea if there was a spook or buck, since we don't see the moment before he is already falling. Scary enough for me.

              That paint has cute knees!

              It certainly wasn't the most graceful of falls, and you can add me to the club that winced when he hit the ground. I can imagine how to a non-horse person, certainly, it would be terrifying! I wouldn't want to do it, for sure.

                Nice soft fall? Yeah, I'm sure a fall off a galloping horse on rough terrain where the horse steps on you is nice and soft.

                  I guess I'm a drama llama too.

                  If a student had taken that fall, I'd have been pretty worried. If they were able to remount, we would have walked back to the barn after that.

                  If you listen to the Letterman interview, he's riding on a bareback pad that slipped as the horse jumped a clump of sage brush, and he made a decision to let go and drop off after hanging onto the horse's side for a few strides.

                  Let's see - multimillion dollar actor in a multi million dollar feature film, galloping bareback in the open in company, no helmet or other safety gear, falls under his horse and the horse jumps over him, just clipping him with one hind hoof.

                  And someone has a quibble with the word "scary" in the headline?

                  Let me know in what universe that isn't scary, so I can avoid riding there.

                      Another drama llama here. When I saw the video my thought was "ouch!", and "the results could have been a lot worse, with him landing under the horse's feet".

                      OP, did you actually watch the video you linked to??

                        Yes, I don't think too many riders would have recovered from the scenario he described. Once you and your saddle/bareback pad are on the horse's side at a canter, you're pretty much only going in one direction from there.

                        At least he was able to laugh about it.

                            All I know is that Tonto has a very strange thing on his head. Then again, I suppose Depp likes to dress up funky. He made the prettiest pirate I've ever seen.

                                Well, count me among the drama llama crowd, because that was a NASTY tumble! You should scroll down to the BOTTOM video, at 1:06, and see the WHOLE thing, including the shot of the hoofprint on Johnny's ribs. Definitely NOT a wussy fall!

                                  Too bad they didn't make this movie back when Depp was still cute (I can say that since I'm not cute anymore, either).

                                  That pic that Leno showed... Wow, Depp was all up in that horse's mouth! It wasn't a pretty fall but it didn't kill or maim him. He's lucky.

Our owner always like Scout cause he was a Pinto. And Silverheels seemed to be a good guy. Silver seemed to have too much pink around his eyes, even back in the tv days when that first Silver was acting.

                                      The other video someone posted showed just how the pinto did try to avoid squashing Depp with his front hooves. And the response of the whole crew was funny, with everyone running to save the multi-million dollar man.

                                          Add me to the drama llama crowd. I hate falling. I also have the distinction of falling off a stationary horse; I mounted and kept going right over That knocked the wind right out of me, so I definitely don't feel all 'holier than thou' and diss as minor a fall from a galloping horse.
