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!

  • Old Horse Movie, need name???

    THere was a movie in the late 60s about a horse and a mute boy named Phillip. He names the horse Phillip as well. In the movie the horse gets stuck in quick sand and the boy gets him out and speaks, does anyone know the name of this movie...

    Thank you!
    Sorry! But that barn smell is my aromatherapy!

    Maybe the "Sad Horse" with Brandon de Wilde?

      That would be ... drum roll, please! ... "Run Wild, Run Free." The boy is Mark Lester, of "Oliver!" fame. It's actually quite a lovely movie.

        Oh Wow. I can't believe someone else remembers that movie! I'd watch it every time it came on when I could get it in (hard to get in with the rabbit ears I think I was 5 and cried every time the pony got stuck in the mud but got up when the boy finally spoke. Sigh. Thanks for taking me back down memory lane.

          another movie!

          Ok - does someone remember the one called something like Maryland, where the horse falls during a foxhunt and the rider is killed or badly hurt, and the groom is ordered to destroy the horse...black and white from the 30s or 40s with lots of those dramatic movie actresses speaking with a high society accent...

            I think this is the one you're looking for, and yes, its title is "Maryland" http://movies.nytimes.com/movie/1018...yland/overview

                Thanks for posting those. I can't believe I've never seen either of them. I love old horse movies from the 30s and 40s, so I'd really like to see Maryland.
                People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly... timey wimey... stuff.

                  Was that a British movie, and there was always a lot of mist swirling around, and the pony got stuck in a bottomless bog, not quicksand? Or am I thinking of a different movie?

                  If it's the same one, it's a terrible tear-jerker - I remember crying until I threw up when watching it.

                  It was chosen by the parents for the Pony Club Christmas party one year, and I wasn't the only one throwing up; we were all equally stricken. Fine old mess that was - not quite the sweet pony movie they'd hoped for!

                    Yes, that would be the same movie, and I can understand why you cried. The movie is indeed British and the pony indeed becomes bog-bound, but in Yank terminology, it was quicksand.

                      I never saw the movie, but I've read the book it was based on. The title was originally "The White Colt" but it can also be found under the movie title "Run Wild, Run Free" and it was written by David Rook.

                          Wow, I still vaguely remember watching that movie, it's probably been close to thirty years ago. I wonder if it's available anywhere?

                            I found the movie!!!

                            I also watched this as a child, and cried and cried. Well today I was inspired to do a random search as it is SO foggy here in central California that it reminded me of this wonderful movie. I can't wait to watch it tonight! Enjoy!!

                              There are two movies I would like to get my hands on and they apparently aren't available. One is "Gallant Bess." Now there IS a movie by that name available, but it's not the one I'm talking about. The available one is more of a western. The one I want is a WWII movie, where a young man's loved horse dies. He enlists during the war, and on a Pacfic Island finds a mare, develops a relationship, names it after the horse that died, etc. When they evacuate the island, commanders say horse must be left, but it jumps in the water and swims to the departing LST-type ship, and commanders relent and allow it on...and they all live happily ever after.

                              The other is called "Kentucky" (circa 1938) and is based on the John Taintor Foote short story, "The Look of Eagles." It starred Loretta Young. Doesn't seem to be available on DVD at all.

                                I loved Gallant Bess as a child too. It is available here:

                                and IMDb has the back story if you search the title.

                                  Wow! Thanks so much. It wasn't available a year or two ago. I guess I ought to check more frequently! Still would like to get that "Kentucky" one, though.

                                    Wow, I remember Run Wild. Run Free...although I don't think I would have ever remembered the name. I don't remember the boy being a mute, but I do remember he was in Oliver. God I was upset over the scene of the pony caught in the bog. I didn't vomit, but it left such an impression that I remember it some 40 years later.
