The Chronicle Forums are a service provided to the equestrian community by the Chronicle of the Horse magazine. This service is expensive, however, so in order to help support these forums, we're offering premium memberships with added features.

Purchasing a premium mebership is not required in order to participate on the Chronicle Forums. But if you enjoy it here and want to help support this community, we hope you'll consider purchasing one!

What does a premium membership include?

The ability to attach photographs to your posts
A $20 credit for www.cothclassifieds.com
A custom user title
The ability to post threads in the Event Announcements forum
Increased Private Message storage capacity

The cost is $20 per year. The membership fee is not refundable -- if you choose not to participate on the Chronicle Forums or if your membership is revoked for any reason, you will not get any portion of your membership fee refunded.

You can purchase a premium membership instantly with PayPal -- just click on "Settings," which appears in the blue menu bar near the top of each COTH forums page when you're logged into your account here. In the User CP, select "Paid Subscriptions" from the menu down the left-hand side of the page. You can either purchase a single-year membership, or a recurring membership that renews automatically each year.

Once your payment has cleared, your membership activates automatically. You can edit your user title by editing your profile in your User CP.

If you prefer not to use PayPal and would like to pay with a credit card, you can call the main office at 540-687-6341 to pay over the phone. You may also send in a check or money order to:

Laura Honohan
The Chronicle of the Horse
P.O. Box 46
Middleburg, VA 20118

Along with your $20 payment, please include a note with your name, email address, Forums username and the purpose of your payment.

If you purchased a recurring membership via PayPal and do not want it to renew when your current term expires, follow these directions:

Log in to your PayPal account.
Click Profile near the top of the page.
Click My money.
Click Update in the My preapproved payments section.
Click Cancel or Cancel automatic billing and follow the instructions.

Thanks for helping to support the Chronicle bulletin board! :)
