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!

  • George Morris on our radio show!!! Trivia added to 1st post!

    TRIVIA ALERT: We just found out that George Morris was the gas station attendant in the movie Psycho with Anthony Perkins. In our interview, we discussed his career including his brief stint as an actor and apparently, he was friends with Anthony Perkins and did have a brief spot in this film. He is not credited in the credits as it was a bit part but still cool!


    GEORGE MORRIS is going to be interviewed on our radio show, Horse Talk, Saturday morning APRIL 4th 8AM EASTERN TIME. You can log onto www.wtbq.com to listen in on the interview. We are so excited and honored to have him on our show! Below is a quickie bio.

    [Mods: I'm sorry to place this here as well as HJ. But we're getting a lot of interest in this and George is going to talk about his childhood, brief acting career, fear of horses, etc. I'm really sorry and I understand if you think this is advertising. I do this show for free so there's no money exchanged but I though COTH'ers would be interested in his life...He's been a pleasure to speak with on the phone and I'm excited to get the details of his life this Saturday!!!]

    For those of you who don't know, I do a radio show every Saturday morning called Horse Talk. We have two other show hosts, Peter Cashman and Chip Watson. We interview horse people local to Orange County NY and, of course, nationally renown horse trainers and figures!

    What: Horse Talk Radio show
    When: April 4th, Saturday morning: 8AM-9AM Eastern Standard Time
    How: You can log onto: www.wtbq.com
    Who: George Morris is going to call in and tell us about his life!! Did you know Mr. Morris had a brief acting career and a fear of horses as a youngster? We are going to get to the bottom of this.
    Where: Your computer! Simply flick it on April 4th and listen in!


    Quickie Bio: George Morris is considered to be one of the most influential trainers in the history of equestrian sports and a "founding father" of Hunt Seat Equitation.

    A rider with a long list of impressive wins himself, Morris first caught the attention of the equestrian world in 1952 when he won both the AHSA Hunter Seat Medal Final and the ASPCA Maclay Final - the two most prestigious junior equitation titles in the country - at the age of 14, the youngest rider ever to do so.

    He went on to represent the U.S. as a member of the Gold Medal-winning USET squad at the 1959 Pan American Games. Between 1958 and 1960, he rode on eight winning Nation's Cup teams, and in later years served as Chef d'Equipe for numerous Nation's Cup teams as well.

    And in 1960, at the age of 22, George Morris was the youngest member of the U.S. show jumping team which won the silver medals at the Rome Olympics. In 1988, Morris won the biggest purse in Show Jumping history at Spruce Meadows, Canada.

    After the 1960 Olympics, Morris retired from competition and had a brief fling at an acting career, but he was soon back with the horses and achieved considerable success as an instructor and author. Acting? Who knew, this is what we're going to find out!

    In 1963, Morris began training junior equitation riders. Morris's former students include some of the sport's top riders, including Leslie Burr Howard, Norman Dello Joio, the Leone brothers, Chris Kappler and Katie Prudent.

    A well-known author of several titles, Morris's first book "Hunter Seat Equitation" is now in its third edition. Morris also writes a popular column in Practical Horseman, called "Jumping Clinic," in which he critiques the jumping positions of photos which have been submitted by readers

    Morris served as a Director for both the USET and AHSA; Vice President of the American Grand Prix Association; and director of the National Horse Show Association.

    George Morris developed what he calls a crest release which is commonly used in showjumping. Touted as one of his many indispensable "innovations" on the art of riding. We will discuss this on the show because even Mr. Morris feels it is overused.

    (Ironically, Morris had suffered from a fear of horses during childhood. This too we'll find out about!)

    Tune in to hear the answers to all these questions, acting? Fear of horses? And his renown career with horses! As George Morris says: Try it, practice it, perfect it.

    When: Horse Talk has been on the air for about 6 years in Orange County NY. You can listen in at www.wtbq.com and stream radio shows live. If you're local, you can listen in at 1110AM or 99.1FM.

    Hope you'll tune in and you can call in at 845-651-1110. If there are any questions you'd like us to ask George directly, e-mail them to me and I can ask him or feel free to call into the radio show April 4th!!

                          He is a gas station attendant in Psycho, and appears for all of 15 seconds...or so I've heard. I keep meaning to rent it!

                            I know it's been forever since I actually watched the movie, but I think there's a scene with a gas station attendant in the rain-so if that's GM it wouldn't be easy to spot him through the rain gear and lighting.

                              Hopefully you'll have him back on the show--he said he would do another interview (). Then you can confirm this information with him--since at this point it seems to be hearsay.

                                MMorgan, I'm on it! He was a great interview! The below thread in HJ kinda answers the question about where GM was in Psycho as someone has already state above. Apparently Psyscho is playing on TCM as we speak...anyone watching?
