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!

          Unfortunately, one of my friend's horses (a gorgeous tennessee walker) was attacked by a pit bull as they were riding down the street, the dog, a "family pet", latched onto the horse's nose and would NOT let go, horse survived, but was terribly mangled.

          They're dangerous because once they clamp down, they don't let go. You never know with pit bulls, that's what they're bred to do.

            did you contact the owners? You should check to see if the dog has his rabies vaccine up to date. If I was you, I would've beaten that dog till is was no more or send it to the lab so it can be tested for rabies, either or, the dog would end up dead. Then, I would get a police report, contact the owners and get them to pay for the vet bills, medical supplies and whatother fees that you might have due to this.

              Something similar happened when I was growing up. A pit bull got out on a trail in Palos Verdes and chased a horse and rider down. The dog grabbed the horse by the neck and locked it's jaws right around the jugular vein. The horse had to be euthanized right there on the trail. It must have been 25 years ago, but I can still picture the article in the paper. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

                urg. Where are the stupid dog owners?

                I'd be giving their dog back to them in a ziplock bag.

                  The child was riding down the trail near where the dog was being looked after{owner supposedly in jail]

                  The dog attacked the horse driving it into a pond,I really don't know how they got the dog off the horse.Police shot the dog,owner reappeared furious his dog had been shot.

                  Horse has multiple cuts and tears plus a problem beginning with P ????is,which was a bacteria that entered the wounds while it was in the pond.

                  Child and family are completely traumatized by the incident,they have little money and love the horse dearly,I think the horse is 22.

                  I heard a fund has been set up for donations I can find out where and post for you.Obviously vet costs are going to be high,but it looks as though the horse will survive so long as she can overcome the infection it got from the pond water.

                      I have a thing against Pit's anyway...working at a vet's office, I haven't seen one that I've liked. Sorry if that's stereotyping(sp?) all of them...it's just my opinion. When I hear of something like this...it just makes my feelings that much stronger!

                      What a horrid thing for both the horse and child to have to go through! I don't even want to imagine~ Hopefully the dog was killed when they shot it. The owner should be liable if the dog was loose!!!! They should have to pay the vet bills!!!

                          ... I found myself smiling when the author reported that the dog had been shot; smiling when the dog's owner appeared in handcuffs. Similar things have happened in NYC -- a very high-profile case involving an elderly man whose ears were ripped off, for starters. I love pits and I know some wonderful pits, but any dog "allowed" to become feral will eventually become feral.

                          Here's hoping the neighbors take it upon themselves to put those other dogs out of their misery before another horse (or cat or dog or child) is mangled or killed.

                            Surely at this stage it's not up to the owners - since their dogs are proven attackers they should be seized and put to sleep?

                            And frankly I'm surprised that the policeman didn't shoot the dog(s) when they went for him - IME they generally shoot first, ask questions later when threatened.

                              Some of the nicest, safest dogs I have been around have been pit bulls and other bull terrier types of dogs. The only problem with the pit bull is that it was bred for strong jaw strength and to not let go when it does decide to bite. In the hands of a bad owner, that can be a bad thing. But all things considered, you are much more likely to be bit by "Lady" the cocker spaniel!

                                I assume she wasn't an owner -- and if she was, well, I hope Lucky's owners SUE her too. This isn't a loose dog story; it's assault, it's animal neglect, it's malicious destruction of property.

                                As for the policeman -- yes, I'm VERY surprised. What was he waiting for? Would he need a warrant by Florida law? Frightening.

                                  I am setting up a donation for them at my feedstore(which is mentioned in the article). Hopefully, this will help with any medication or feed that they may need, since I know that their vet bills will be atrocious. How horrific for the children.

                                    Agreed -- One of my school horses and I were once attacked and chased by a little Spitz-cross that I will always refer to as "Fluffy."

                                    Dear "Fluffy" almost had me killed, and I guarantee that if he had been caught that day, his dear negligent owner would be in court, and dear collar-less, leash-less Fluffy would be living under house arrest in another state. (In NY, vicious dogs may be "deported.") To this day, I have difficulty riding out of doors; if I see a dog, I begin having a panic attack.

                                      What a terrible story! The poor girl riding, the poor horse and the poor parents.

                                      It's too sad to even imagine. Unfortunately, it's not that uncommon for horses to be terrorized by loose dogs. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

                                        My horse was attacked while in his paddock, eating his breakfast years ago by the neighbors two german shephards. The dogs were guard dogs at their factory and the people brought them home for a long weekend. They let them out, unsupervised, because they were "so well trained". They proceeded to kill both of their goats and then headed over to our house and attacked my QH. It took weeks and weeks for the puncture wounds to heal on his back legs and he capped both of his hocks on the fence when he was kicking at them.

                                        I love dogs, but there is a reason for a leash law. Dogs should be fenced and/or leashed at all times. Even the nicest, sweetest dog can turn under the right circumstances.

                                        That poor horse. I hope he recovers ok. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]
