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!

            Besides the fact that they are an UGLY saddle, isn't it nice to know, that according to the Parelli's, sitting tall & keeping your legs underneath you was wrong all these years! Yeah, I'm sure GM will be thrilled to learn he's been telling us the wrong thing for years!!!

                Um. Isn't that supposed to be Linda?

                How the heck would I know...but I did read the fugly blog. That whole heels up, shoulders forward thing sent me to snorking.
                A good horseman doesn't have to tell anyone...the horse already knows.

                  Well there's the Parelli Marketing Spin for ya...we can't actually ride in a correct position so we'll tell everyone else that right now = wrong and we're the ONLY people on earth doing it right. Yeah, yeah...that's it...that's the ticket!
                  So $4000 for a saddle and $440 for the pad that goes with that saddle huh? Expected no less from the Parellis.
                  And yeah...the horse "approves" of the saddle...I can tell by his ears.
                  You jump in the saddle,
                  Hold onto the bridle!
                  Jump in the line!

                      I guess I'm one of those riders that ' love to ride "English" '

                      And - Yowza - the PRICES!!!!!! $239 for stirrups and $4,129.00 for the saddle!

                      I think I'll get one though - they say that
                      It is, basically, a "General Purpose" style saddle, with all sorts of unique components inside that make it special, and yet versatile.
                      after all... I mean it has 'Parelli inside'™ and everything!! Woo hoo!

                      Once I get mine, I'm going to try the heels up, shoulders forward thing on cross country!!!!

                          then do I know how to ride?
                          In the past, I'd say no...because you need the dvd's....but they've pulled those off the market because people were getting to linear. Not embracing the concepts.

                          Is this saddle thing REALLY endorsed? Goodness.

                            You beat me to it. I wanted to be the first to comment on the eye popping price tags!!!

                            BTW - if she is going to ride with her toes down - she needs to use my sidesaddle break-away safety stirrup - so when her foot gets caught in the stirrup and she starts getting drug..... well you know what I mean..

                              I once found myself in an arena full of people as Pat gave a rousing "Who'd like to be able to ride like Linda?". All around me people were sticking their hands in the air and yelling "Me! Me! Me!"

                              I gave my wife a panicked look and we both sat on our hands.

                                You bad people..come on now these saddles are ONLY FOR THOSE WHO CARE ABOUT THEIR HORSES.....(read their philosopy statement..these saddles aren't for everyone, just people who care about their horses)

                                OMG, what an ass.....he tells his kool aid followers that now they have to spend another 4 grand or they don't care about their horses after all. After all the money they have forked over, they are abusing their horses unless they own his 4000.00 work of art.

                                  Yes, it is probably a computerized chip of him going on and on about how bad DRESS AGE is for your horse. Love how he berates the discipline, but he certainly wants you to buy his DRESS AGE saddle.

                                    5 bucks to get a CD on the saddles? What the heck. I'll put in 25 cents, anyone else? Then we can load it up on youtube and share the info with EVERYONE for free. What joke.

                                        AHAHA, I saw this on the fugly blog. I love that blog. Cracks me up and makes me feel like I've found a place to indulge in my inner, um, b****. And to the snorking for the heels up shoulders forward, I snorked too, all over my keyboard. HAHA.

                                        And those saddles do totally have that weird ugly tack vibe that makes you know no real horse person would go anywhere near them. Haha, especially for $4K!!!

                                        And the "parelli inside"... is that like a creamy caramel filling or something? Hahahahahahaaaaaaaaaa = )
