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!

  • Horses eviscerated alive for fun???

    Don't know if this has been posted here before, but it is the first I am hearing of it.
    I found it through a Portuguese rescue's FB page. Jesus, Mexico really is the mother of all things horrible when it comes to horse treatment...

      What the hell is wrong with people? No wonder this world is so messed up if people think watching animals disemboweled and bleeding to death is entertainment.

        This is also a normal part of bullfighting. Look at the picadore's horse...the horse wears a padded sheet...it isn't to protect the horse, it's to hide the gored horse coming apart. What a cultural piece of fun. They must be so proud.

          Of course someone will pop up to say it is their property, and their culture so they should be able to do what they want with the animal. Can't dare ban it, because the next thing you know the RARA's will succeed in banning animal ownership. Slippery slope and all that...

          I'm sure there are people in those countries where this takes place, trying to get it banned. And I bet they have horse forums where they post articles about it and try to get it banned. And they probably have posters like we do here, that will argue against banning it, because of slippery slope arguments, and they will be called RARAs.

            "Civilization" is a relative thing, obviously . . .

            It is incumbent upon all of us who believe no animal should meet an end like this to speak up and stop "cultural traditions" which are legacies of barbarism.

                Not sure how things are done in your neck of the woods but, actual bull fighting doesn't aim for the horse to get injured. Ever.
                Not that i'm endorsing bull fighting. Animal cruelty is animal cruelty now matter how pretty a show they put on...

                  Apples and oranges. First, this is Mexico, nobody gives a shit, there's no RARAS where money and publicity isn't involved. Secondly, do you know what else is part of culture? Slavery. Racism. Hell, why don't we bring back the witch hunts while we're at it? It's cultural so it's all good, right?

                          That's just horrible. In my book, that's like doing the same thing to a human.

                              Yes, horrible things go on in Mexican rodeos, not the same as what we have in the US. And the title did speak for itself.

                                  I still haven't clicked the link because I don't know if all I'm going to see is a disemboweled horse. I don't need to see that, I just had my supper. The subject line would speak for itself if it said PICTURE of blah blah.

                                  I see the original post is edited. Thanks, that helps.

                                    I couldn't find much but the whole horses are dying panic that the petition is a part of seems to have started in the past few weeks or months as a result of a few images, while these events have been going on for some time. I certainly didn't find much out there as far as pictures go, just one or two more photos of that exact horse shown above in the petition page with it's guts coming out.
                                    Thus do we growl that our big toes have, at this moment, been thrown up from below!

                                      I just did a search and youtube has some videos, not for the faint of heart.

                                      However, while I think this is a sick "sport" that should be outlawed, after watching the videos, it's a bit different than implied by the petition. Horses being eviscerated is not the point of the thing, it's a dreadful by product. It's basically a bunch of guys on horse back in a ring trying to eiher get a rope on or a blanket over a loose fighting bull. To what end I can't imagine, but when folks get crowded together and the bull wades in its gets gross in a hurry.

                                      If it makes anyone feel better I saw as many shots of riders being severely injured or killed as horses being injured.

                                        I have to agree. I don't think horses being eviscerated for fun is the point. The horses are part of their bull sport. Sometimes just like the people they get gored. Horses underbellies are soft and fragile their made that way ...remember prey animals.

                                        Doesn't make it right in anyway but its certainly not the intended outcome of the event. Also just like above in the few videos I could stomach I saw far more people thrown to the ground , stomped on , gored , squished by the horses and a few I'm certain that did not see the sun rise.

                                        I am a little amazed at how many people are shocked at how some cultures value animals considering their long history of barely valuing humans.
