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!

    Tonto doesn't "fall off". He was thrown.

      There was a trailer of the making of the film at the Superman movie- definitely did not look like a cushy fall and then they showed a brief shot of his abdomen/chest with at least one hoof print (if not two). Hoof prints are NEVER fun -

        Actually, I thought Depp specifically mentioned that he *decided* to drop, because he couldn't get back on, and didn't think that he could hang on until someone caught up with them. I thought he was pretty fair about not blaming the horse.

            Thought I was the only one that did that. Ruined a perfectly helmet I did.

              I noticed the same thing! I wondered if they all get laid off if he can't work.
              i suspect it would depend on how much of the principal photography had been completed at that point; when brandon lee was killed on the set of the crow they continued with a double and CGI'ed his face in.


              I also have the distinction of falling off a stationary horse; I mounted and kept going right over
              i distinctly remember a poll on here surveying the gaits at which ppl have fallen off horses; "halt" and "i've fallen down while standing next to my horse" were two of the choices.

                  As a horsey person, I really appreciated depps letterman interview. I think he spoke well to the non horse people about how the incident occurred and howeverybhorses different. He could have been less diplomatic

                    Well, we'll stick with Johnny Depp, no matter what his riding skills. Turns out the tabloids have a lot of information on the dude playing the Lone Ranger, and he has a somewhat kinky past based on his interview in Playboy. We'll stay with Depp, and hope the movie is entertaining. Watching old western movies and tv programs and seeing all the horses has always been fun.

                      Huh. Maybe they should have had a real Native American riding.
                      Johhny Depp..ick. What an idiot. Amazing that in 2013 we still have to have someone who may have had one tenth of one percent or something Cherokee play a Native. Would we watch a movie of Harriet Tubman with Wynona Ryder in black face or something? Or a movie of Rosa Parks starring Meryl Streep?
                      Not likely.

                        Ouch. At least he was smart enough to have his heels down and let go of the reins. I've been dragged before and it ain't pretty.

                        Any dude who can fall off a horse and look that good is alright in my book

                          Well, the movie has to get made before we can decide whether or not to watch it. I doubt it would have been made without Johnny Depp (or someone like him) as one of the stars. I think it barely got made even with him involved.

                            Well, it was pretty demeaning for Jay Silverheels to have to talk like he didn't speak english well. If Depp portrays Tonto as an intelligent, articulate person, abet one who cannot ride so well,, then good for him. Not many of us are cool enough to live "the Navajo Way." We value material things while Indians value spiritual things and being one with nature. We can learn a lot about native americans by watching movies. And debating issues of race and discrimination.

                            Without Johnny Depp, the movie would probably not have been made. And we don't know any 100% native american who is a super star.

                              Hey now. Remember when Chuck Connors played Geromino? At least Johnny Depp doesn't have blue eyes.

                              I've heard an interview with Johnny Depp where he said his mother was Cherokee. Then I've also read he had the apocryphal Cherokee grandmother. So that may be a whole lot of BS.

                              From the trailers, it looks like they're going to give Tonto a back story like Sand Creek, so at least it will be a big name star letting people know about the kind of things that happened back then. The last movie I remember that covered that was Little Big Man - a whole lot of kids have been born since 1970.

                              Anyway, I'm a huge Johnny Depp fan, so I'm going to go see it. Horses and Johnny Depp? Not since Sleepy Hollow have I been so excited.

                              To the OP - wow, you must be one tough cookie. That fall looked bad to me. I thought Johnny Depp did well to laugh it off and keep working. Last time I came off like that, DH was feeding for me for three days.

                                Don't forget, Depp bought or adopted his horse from Sleepy Hollow afterwards to make sure it had a happy life, IIRC.

                                  Whatever his vague heritage - grandma may have had a drop or something of Cherokee in her, how 'bout making a movie and letting a real Native play Tonto? He could have played LR. Its not like LR is some kind of gift to the Native Americans. And here's an idea - Native Americans THEMSELVES are pretty good at being intelligent, articulate and so forth; they don't need a white guy to do it for them!

                                  I mean, we would probably not do a story on George Washington starring Denzel Washington, right? Nor a story on Che starring Brad Pitt. But...hey, with the Natives, sure! We can just throw a white guy (oh wait- he does have some billionth bit of Native blood) in there, cuz hell, white folk won't notice or care (and they don't!) and who cares about how Native Americans really feel about it? Maybe the reason people don't know about any Native American superstars (but there are Adam Beach, wes studi, eric schweig) is because we keep PUTTING IN WHITE GUYS!!!

                                  Just a sore topic for me - husband Native and hates this, always hate to see the same issues coming up even in 2013...

                                      "Little Big Man" was a great movie. No one complained about a great Jewish actor playing a Native American. Can't remember if he was a good rider though. He was a great actor in that movie, especially when doing that "contrary" part.

                                      Without getting into an argument about who is part Indian or whatever, who was the Indian or part Indian who played in the movie made from one of Tony Hillerman's novels about the Navajo policemen? We don't think he's as good an actor as Depp, and his movie wasn't very successful, but he's the only Indian actor that comes to mind. If Depp does his job, he will show that the Native Americans are intelligent and resourceful and brave. Whether or not Depp is "part" Native American.

                                      And oh yes, our owner has a friend who is 1/2 indian and 1/2 black, married to a black guy who is actually multi culture black and white. We'll ask her what she thinks of Depp playing Tonto. Hopefully not the old Tonto of olden times.
