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!

    In 2011 it will be Pat Parelli, Clinton Anderson and Chris Cox, I think.

    I wonder if PP really thinks he is up to that, or if RRTH and PP are both using that for publicity, but in the last minute they will have someone other than PP in his place?

    I can't imagine he will do that well, for several reasons and he has way more to lose if he doesn't, I would think.

    You can talk yourself out of some training troubles like the infamous LP video, or this here, but you can't from several hours of mishaps, maybe flat out mistakes and compared, side to side, with others that have done that before and shown they can do it and well.

    It will be interesting to see what happens, will it.
    it didn't hurt CA one IOTA when he badgered a colt he described as destined to be a delightful ladies or child's horse, just a good boy...into coming after him, teeth bared and going for it- when he turned his back. Not. One. BIT. He lost that RTTH to Chris Cox, whose body language indicated for the entirety of the event, that he wouldn't pee on CA if he was on fire. Just sayin'.

      The last I heard PP was no longer doing Road-rather an starred PP instructor was taking his place.

        Someone came to their senses.
        I don't blame PP, that was a harebrained idea to start with.
        PP, as good as he may be in other ways, is not that kind of a hand to start with, other than maybe in the mind of their followers.

            Something wrong with this? The person is just saying that she/he has two horses that are polar opposites that she's working with at the same time..

            In that case it would be highly athletic horse, lots of energy, bit of a bully and the horse who is more timid and fearful.

              Parelli did what he did in broad day light for everybody to see. He didn't hurt
              the stallion and stopped to take it up another day.

              What's horrible and frightening is what dressage queens do in the dark in the absence of art.

              Dressage horses who need injection in their crippled hocks. That's what's sad.
              Veterinarians are getting rich on treating dressage horses crippled by
              dressage queens.

              They're not getting rich off Parelli and his students.

                Well back in the day when it was first started and operating under it's spanish naming convention....he won it. And saw fit to take his shirt off and hoot and holler. Those were the *drunken* daze

                  Ya know, shave off the mooostash, make him take off the hat, and put him in a pair of regular pants with a regular belt and all those ditzy women wouldn't think PP was so "speshul" after all.

                            Parelli....

                            Rollkur/DQ conspiracy theories....

                            Is somebody going to go for the trifecta and bring up slaughter/backing 2 year olds/Vanners, etc.?

                                I'm shocked that the Parelli's don't impliment a "No Videotaping" policy when they do these demos. I don't think they would want to risk anyone actually having proof of what shams they are and what they really make the horses endure.

                                As an aside, for those that were followers of the Barney saga, did anyone see this video?

                                http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OP6WdKZLv0U

                                I came across it on youtube, and it's pretty much a refute to those PP nuts that claim Linda was doing what was necessary in order to handle such a dangerous equine as Barney :eye roll:

                                    Jeez. She has the most chaotic and inconsistent body language. I see what she's trying to do, and I've seen it done well, but she's got a weird frenetic energy that makes ME agitated.

                                      That is exactly what I was wondering. Whitaker must need cash flow and/or be lacking sponsors to put up with that Dog and Pony Show of PP.

                                      I wonder if the stallion will kick the tar out of the farrier, or the next person who needs to clean it's hooves, after having it's legs pulled out from under it during the demo.
