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!

    I think the third picture in my first URL is of Kelsy, finding alternate jobs for her Jr Jumper.

      When we stumbled upon the conspiracy, Jair, were we wearing our black Armani square cuts or the white Gucci thongs? I don't remember ... too many Yellow Birds that a.m. I seem to vaguely recall Heidi letting us rest our drinks on her enhanced decolletage, but things get a bit fuzzy after that.

      What I do know, is that the North American IDHS group are crying foul over the fact that bigbearbloods are really heavily Irish bred and are NOT getting the credit they deserve in the sport horse world! That's why their ears are a little big and they have such tremendous scope.

        RJ - Are you talking about the drink - Yellow Bird? I had one of those at a Chinese Restaurant one time and it knocked me on my butt quicker than you can say "VTrider"!!!

          Here is a picture of my favorite mule of all times!!

            From between the great canyon of her ample bosom, Heidi pulls out the latest directive from 'Charlie' (spilling nary an ounce of the precious and perched Yellowbird cocktail): "Angels, there has been a great misdeed comitted against the hunter jumper world. Sea Urchin must be stopped. Use all the resources at your disposal."

            Go-go boots and Gucci thongs ablaze with commitment to the mission, Robby Drew and Jair Hardy leapt onto their awaiting Vespas and sped off. In the fumes of their departure, their voices hung in the humid air, to drift into the ears of nearby cafe dwellers.

            Robby Drew: "No, miss thang, I'm Cameron, you're Drew".

            Jair Hardy: "I don't wanna be Drew, she's going out with that gross Tom Green guy. I'm more capable of breaking Matt Dillon's heart, I'm Cameron!"

                Let's reminisce brother Jair about your glory days in white satin pants, serenading a stadium full of 13 year-old girls, "Met her on a Sunday and my heart stood still, da doo run, run, run, da doo run, run". Were the surgeons successful in excising your surgically stitched-on pants?

                How your poor brother Robby had to suffer through a tumultous marriage to Kirstie Alley. Thank goodness for syndicated television series - his career is once again on its destined path and from the divorce settlement he can now buy as many bigearbloods as he pleases. I believe he's purchased one for each lovely maiden in his harem - VTrider, MAZ, AHC.

                As for moi, my mammary canyons have deflated with age and I am stuck in the small Mexican town, slinging burritos.

                  First and foremost, I would never wear go-go boots. Instead, I am much more fond of the Prada velcro aquasocks that retail for the low Prada price of $295. But you're right - I'm totally Cameron.

                  Fear not, fair maiden! I shall make a personal delivery of your new bigbearblood very, very soon. Despite my stunning blue eyes and shocking blond hair, I'm still a Diaz at heart! My roots run deep (btw, where's Oribe when you need him for a quick touch-up?).

                  Robby, off to drink Yellow Birds (popular a.m. Mardi Gras drink, VT Rider) for the afternoon ...

                    Robby, gotta run and pick up the kids from school but I think there's a fashion thread on the verge of breakthrough.

                    You post it okay in my absence - which designer would you choose to 'redesign' the riding garb?


                    • #50
                      Jair! I didn't know the Bigearblood Breeding Compendium had been translated from the German, or was that orignally in Dutch, already! I shall have to order a copy. Hopefully I can find it on Amazon.

                      I'm disappointed that the WBFSH has not yet admitted the Bigearblood Verband to full membership, but it's only a matter of time, I'm sure.

                      Bigoubet de Earouet is my absolute favorite! I understand even the O'Connors are considering adding some Bigearblood lines to their event horses -- Giltears, Custom Mule, and Prince Panears. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                        It would be John Bartlett. He's the s*it, AFAIC!

                        What about you?

                        RJ (five years ago I'd have said Gaultier, but that was when I was a wasp-waisted Italian size 48 ... and who *really* wants to ride in rubber?)

                              Jacob TwoBigEars! LOLOL!! I can just picture him!

                              Oh, this has got to stop. The partners are coming in wondering why the hell I'm laughing out loud to myself while sitting in front of the computer.

                                  Tis true, too short to wear Prada, Armani, John Bartlett well. I look I'm wearing ma-in-law's potato sack. And I know we drove his wife to suicide, but I'm kinda partial to Claude Montana - I think he'd create a doozy of a sexy riding jacket. Though not prototyped from his '80's collections - I'd probably get eaten alive by the shoulder pads. Other confession, I LOVE Geoffrey Beene. What an elegant jacket he'd make, with such pretty details. Would love to see what Galliano could create to replace the damn TS's. Would guess that it'd be a work of art and NO ONE would look as if they're stashing a colostomy bag.

                                        I am at my desk roaring with laughter thinking about the hairnets/helmets John and Michael Whitakears will need to wear in order to get that hair over the big ears look.... and then I see the picture of Prince Charles and laugh even harder....
