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!

          • WOW! After reading this entire thread, I have spent 1 hr 15 minutes of time I should have been doing work... would have been faster had the computer been working faster...but nevermind that! It was entertainment!

            I always wanted to know what the whole crayola posse thing was about, and now after reading about BA's ordeal, I am deathly afraid to send my horse out to a trainer, especially considering the majority of trainers in this area focus on the natural horsemanship thing...I find some use for ground manners training with natural horsemanship, but little else...

            anywho... I would love to join in on the crayola posse bus..or trailer... though with as many supports as BA has now, it might take more than one bus or trailer... I wish I knew where this all was going on because there is a similar trainer that has made a rather bad reputation for themselves in the small town that I lived in for a few years...beginning to wonder if it might be the same town...

            justhanginon.....may I share AQUAMARINE with you?? Please?! It happens to be my favorite color and the "color of the month" for March, both my horse and I have b-days that month!

              Empressive, where in VA are you located?

              My trainer doesn't use the NH "methods", and has taken my crazed, spooky, maniac Arabian gelding, and turned him into a lovely, useful equine citizen.
              Homeopathy claims water can cure you since it once held medicine. That's like saying you can get sustenance from an empty plate because it once held food.

                  In Northern VA, and I consider it exactly what it is a location, not my home town...

                  The town I was talking about with the crazy trainer is not in VA, but I know of one in the NoVa area, and after much much thinking and contemplating pros and cons and reviews from past clients, Im glad I did not send my horse to her...I am still in the market for a trainer though, and I too have started my horse and she is saddle broke, the whole WTC thing is questionable....havent spent much time working on that lately with my whole 911 barn move situation...

                  Wish BA would disclose a location...I would get a hoot out of it if it was the same town...

                  • I moved from the NOVA/DC/Maryland area 3 years ago to my little SW VA backwater, and I've been as happy as a pig in mud ever since.

                    I don't miss the rat race or the traffic! I do miss culture, though. Lynchburg isn't exactly the hub of civilization and the arts.

                    I don't know any NOVA trainers, unfortunately. My trainer's great, although she's much too far away to be of any use to you. From NOVA, she's over a 3 hour drive.

                      ...yea 3 hours away is a little far for me to be separated from my girl... I'm not sure which of us has greater separation anxiety from each other...we're probably both crazy...

                      And I was an AirForce brat growing up so I've seen everything, even been overseas.... I can understand not missing the traffic... but personally I think I could stand to go without the culture. I'm from the south...and I mean the DEEP south...Born in Texas, raised in Alabama and Mississippi 30 miles from the nearest gas station and grocery story, never wore shoes unless going to town or church, and lived to be outside every day...now that doesnt make me uncivilized but the NoVa atmosphere is SOOOO stuffy! and for those wondering.. I am not a "redneck" and I see no problem with anyone being one haha...

                      Anyways...getting back on the topic... did I miss any updates from BA since the whole post about lawyer,police,& charges...my computer started acting up....

                                        • One of our Canadian friends has found the perfect underwear and headgear for the crayola posse to wear on the bus and on the plane, in keeping with the "child in my pasture" thread by the cheese witch.
                                          Meanwhile, is Blind Alter OK? Anyone heard from her?
                                          wow, we have a lot of people in the 64 crayon box, and a lot of sharing, so our colors will look good.
                                          I do hope that BA has gotten her training business up and running so she can train horses on her new spread.
