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!

    If anyone wants to see the pictures or video clips of Taylor and I on Sunday please email. I am sorry. I in no way am hurt by constructive criticism aimed toward me, but I am by derogatory statements aimed at a child.

    I rarely see Cleveland Bays around here. And now I'm guessing they aren't all bay?

      Partbreds are not always bay, Ferdi is 1/4 CB/TB, so he takes after his TB side, though not sure where the flaxen came from.

          That's adorable Those are very good boys, I especially liked the part where your daughter was jumping up and down next to your gelding and he just looked at her like "Hey kid, what's up?", didn't even bat an eye. I like them with bombproofing, personally

            Pure Cleveland Bays are always bay, they may have a small star, if they have more they can be registered but are mismarked. There is the rare chestnut CB but I've only heard of them, never seen one, maybe one picture? Partbreds can be any color, there have been bay, grey, chestnut and pinto, I don't think any appy's yet, but could be wrong, oh and I've seen roans!

              Thanks for the info. I don't know a whole lot about CBs...now that you mention it I have noticed that the handful I've ever seen and all the photos I've seen of them haven't shown any to have white markings either.
              I wasn't sure how dominant their coloring was...but I guess no more dominant than any bay. I know horses like Fjords are *really* typey even when crossed...both with color and type.
              I really enjoy color genetics...it's interesting as heck. But there's soooo much to learn.
              I do remember there used to be a small speedy little CB gelding that used to show the circuits around here in CT when I was a teenager. He was cute and agile as heck...showed in low jumpers and ran into him and his fearless tiny owner at some hunter paces once in a while too. Bold as brass that little guy was...maybe 14.3 hh or so and such a refined build on him. Can;t remember his name off hand though.

                        Please tell me I'm not the only one who was very alarmed at these videos.... I am a pretty laid back individual (I think), and I know even the best horses can have days when things go terribly wrong. Maybe I've turned into a stick up the butt kind, gosh I hope not, but I was quite concerned for the safety of your daughter during both of these videos.

                        Video one - leading a yearling freshly saddled for the first time (even if you had already led him around for a little while!) at a walk and trot up and down the driveway like that, and in the manner she was doing it (often directly in front of the horse). Goodness, he could've suddenly jumped forward and trampled her.

                        And in the second video, even more alarming that you rode him for the first time with her standing so close, and again, directly in front of him at points in time.

                        All it takes is once, and your little girl is gone. Accidents can happen with any horse, but this just seems to be asking for it. It is so not worth it... I wish you would re-think having her help so closely with babies like this.

                          Wigwag, it's NOT just you. I was pretty aghasted myself over those videos. Last thing in the world I'd do with a newly saddled yearling is hand over the reins to a 5yo and say 'get out of the way if you need to' and then distract myself with a camera. NO kid in the world is going to be able to avoid a wreck if it were to happen and the OP is in no position to help.

                          The first time riding one was even worse to me. OP took the time to set up and secure a camera but not her kid. I'm glad your horse was so good and nothing happened, this time.

                            Horse are horses....and yes they all have bad days. Taylor has fallen off her 20 year old pony when he missteps. We did work a young horse, two that day that she wasn't even near me. She stayed outside the round pen, outside the fence around the round pen and then stood there in the grass. This was a fiesty filly that had not had extensive ground work. Sure this was the first time the one boy was ridden and the first time Garrett was saddled. But, I did lead them around for quite some time before video taping. Sure it's not enough for some of you. But being around horses and being young is dangerous. Period, whether she's helping cleaning stalls, or with the horse. These two have been despooked, tied, etc. Sure things can come up, but I'd never put her in a situation I felt was not safe. At what point do you allow a young child to help? At what age? Taylor lives on a farm and has to be around horses each day. She's not only at the barn once a week for a lesson. At some point they have to be introduced and for me using two very calm youngsters I've worked with and know and trust are the first steps to having her help me. Or do I wait til she is 8? I don't know the answer. I just know I didn't feel at once like she was in danger. Maybe 30 feet away was too close when I was on Ferdinand. As for leading she leads these youngsters all the time. I just know how I feel around these two and how much I love and adore my daughter. But I am interested at what point you introduce them to youngsters? She's been leading my trained horses and her pony since she was 2.

                              Personally speaking, I wouldn't let anyone other than competant teenagers, under supervision, handle yearlings and horses being ridden for 1st time. If you are honestly asking what age range - that is my answer.... before that I don't believe a young child has the capability or size to react quickly enough and appropriately to a panicking young horse, or one who suddenly throws a temper tantrum.

                              She did not look 30 feet away to me. That leadrope is what, 6 - 8 feet? And in the video of you mounting and circling, I know cameras can be deceiving, but again - 30 feet?

                                Since you deleted my comment on your video and immaturely posted a rude reply on one of my videos http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mbCYYgH_Pyw in retaliation- I will say it here so you can't delete it.

                                I am really concerned that you are allowing your 5 year old to be working with a young stallion and other young horses. Your child is not paying attention at all, she kicked over your saddle and took your girth away while you were trying to saddle a young horse, and then she started jumping and spinning right where the horse was tied. NOT SAFE AT ALL for her, for you, or for the horse. She was in kick range of the young horse you were riding as you were bouncing up and down on it's back. Again- not safe. Several of your videos have me seriously concerned about your daughter and your horses. Your attitude about it leaves me even more concerned. *shakes head*

                                oops- looks like you deleted the link to your other video

                                  Me neither. (I'd let competent grown-ups handle them too, though. ) Even the calmest, most angelic and "despooked" youngstock have their moments.

                                  I do love CBs.
