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!

  • oooooh toffee pops....drool. Unfortunately I only have gingernuts at my desk...sigh. Fear not, toffee pops shall be eaten in your honour at some point after I get paid.

    • don't worry. i'll bring my own when i move...i have a suitable amount of olympic prospects at my farm. some only have 3 legs. some of them have 4...but not very many...apparently i do indeed have a woodchuck problem in the barn.

      one of my horses ran off with his mail order mare that he purchased online, so i may have to leave him here when i move. but please do ask everyone in nz for prospects for me, as my barn will be very large...buy me a few. i will pay you back when i get there. make sure they are gypsey vanner babies. but see if you can find any 2 legged ones. that sounds like a good time..

      i'm off to sleep off my coma-induced state from the prom. whoevers got mr. depp stashed away, please at least let him make a few movies while he's your slave. its not right to keep him to yourself and deprive millions of people their johnny fix.

      • Don't worry, movies are being made. They will be available via the internet (check out the Paris Hilton websites for order details).

        • horse poor -- Are you still lost? Want us to send out some tripods to search for you?!?! Follow the trail of horse poo...maybe it will lead you to your unbroke, broke horse!

          DeLapp -- Don't go to even table for training!!! She is horrid!!! I went from a confident, capable rider to one who can't trot without her by my side holding me up! STAY AWAY!

          Even Table -- 4 o'clock? Your time or mine? Nevermind, I'm taking my horses away from you! YOU HURT THEM!!! What did you think you were doing rapping poor Flea Bag?? Don't you remember you broke his leg last time you did that? Where did you get your BNT status to begin with? In a Cracker Jack box?!? Do you get Yorkie Bars in NZ? How about Bueno Bars?

          Buff -- Do you have a picture of you with your tiara? I'd had a few too many smegma coolers and don't remember when you got it...

          RHF-cSi -- Is Crime Scene Investigator really a good ending to your barn name? Seems kind of suspicious to me...

          • Of course I didn't get my BNT licence out of a cereal box. I sent away for it. YOu're all just jealous because I am just so simply fantastic. And MCM wanted Flea Bag rapped, she just won't admit to it. She was having trouble getting him over those rails on the ground again.

            • I DO NOT have internet access---I have a blackberry. Duh.

              So if I was dumped in the woods with the other nekkid burlap sack wearing peoples, where are they?

              I followed the poo trail but did not find my broken unbroken horse. Did someone steal him?

              Please send a tripod to find me....

                • Now, Event Table, that's just crazy talk, because how can they call a cab if they do not know where they are? And how can a GPS work if you do not know where you are?

                  Duh.

                  • Sorry it has taken me so long to check in ladies. I got sloshed early on (those damn rusty trailer bombs took me out) and ended up taking Adrian Grenier home. AND HE JUST LEFT. How embarrassing.

                    Anyway, I put some BOSS on my zit, so my skin was clear and glowing radiantly by prom time. My dress was a hit, I think, and NO, those were not fleas. Geez.

                    I have engineered fly spray that will genetically mutate average barn flies into waht I call, "blings." Their shell is Swarovsky crystal and they emit Chanel #5 (working on other scents as we speak)--their mobile nature increases the sparkleness because the sun hits them from multiple angles.

                    Look for them on belts, GPA striping, cell phones, etc. Can be yours for only $199 for a box 23. The lifespan is only 24 hours, so you can change colors as soon as the next trend comes along.

                    The resques were excellent, although my head hurts from all the lines of apple bute powder.

                    Must go take another hit of BOSS to get rid of the spins.

                    Glad everyone had fun!

                      Dunno how I got here, but I know where I am!

                      I am at the Kentucky Horse Park! I have a vague recollection of running the x country course last night with the other nekkid burlap sack wearing people and the next thing I know I wake up next to the duck pond!!

                      So, can someone come get me? Please?

                      • Once again, I say, use your blackberry to call a cab. The Lear is still in for repairs and I'm in a snit with all the fancypants Americans for casting aspersions on my BNT abilities. YOu know every true BNT comes from NZ, therefore I must be a BNT. Even Jim is a closet NZer (because of the trout).

                        • Well, Event Table, my Blackberry is only to be used for spreading gossip and scheduling and then canceling riding lessons with my BNT. Why would I use it for something as useful as calling a cab?

                          And besides, I am too good to ride in a cab.

                          Duh.

                          Wonder if my Pocket Trainer can help?
