Topic Happy Hour!

Hello Everyone,

The new Equestrian Forum is a place where you can discuss the various topics related to horse riding in the real world in general.
We started off by posting the topics for our players in the Equestrian forum ourselves.
But today is a bit of a special day!

To make it easier for you as well as for the team, we have decided to open the possibility for players to post directly in the Equestrian Forum during limited time intervals.
We are going to call them the "Topic Happy Hours" on Howrse!

You'll have until 2014-01-20 16:30 to go to the Equestrian Forum and post your topic.
Of course to avoid offending some sensitivities and getting into fights about debatable issues, some topics will be avoided due to their nature. (For instance horse slaughter isn't something we discuss in this forum)

To that effect, the team will be with you in the forum and will eventually moderate some topics if they offer a likely risk of generating a debate. (We reserve ourselves the right to decide what type of topics could generate debates.)
Don't take it personally if we do close your topic, it's simply a question of keeping the best possible atmosphere in the Equestrian Forum and offer a nice place to be to the whole community.

We also reserve ourselves the possibility of closing the "Topic Happy Hour" early if the amount of topics becomes a little too important to handle.


Please do not post more than two or three topics at most, other player also have ideas and the aim isn't to find out who can post the most topics about any horsey themed things as possible in the minimum amount of time.

We hope you'll take a lot of pleasure during and after the Howrse Topic Happy Hours!

The Howrse Team

Thanks again for this Ow! We appreciate it! default smiley :)
We used to show Appaloosas (when soilds weren't allowed to be shown). I recently went to a Appaloosa show and was amazed to see so many solids and fake tails.

My question for Appaloosa owners is, why the fake tails (used to be for gaited horses only)?
Just curious to know your opinions on this - without creating a fuss default smiley :d

I used to love the thin, short tails - so much easier to care for.default smiley ^)

You're welcome, it's actually much simpler for me to let you guys do the imaginative bit and then guide you around any potential hurdles rather than deciding for you.

The only thing i want is for the forum to stay civil, fun and welcoming to everyone regardless of how old or how experienced they are.

And i also want to avoid giving any advice that could in inexperienced hands lead to injuries for either horse or rider.

I REALLY like this idea, I hope that it doesnt get abused by some players posting silly things, it will open up the possibility of 'real world' discussions to a wider audience than the EC forums, which let's face it, unless you're a mod or top player they don't get a huge amount of traffic. I'm looking forward to seeing if this works out default smiley :)

Open doesn't mean mayhem time unsupervised by me default smiley :-x If the forum is abused we'll stop the experiment and remove it, so you are all responsible for safeguarding your own freedom in that respect. Think of yourself AND think of all the other players default smiley ;)
