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 live in Northwest Connecticut. I ride Hunter/Jumper, but don't own my own horse. I ride schoolies [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img] I enjoy long walk on the beach and new age music... oh wait, no, I like movies and funny things (like pictures of ErinB and her friends) and stuff like that.

          Well let's see...I'm 15, live in Austin, Texas, and my ex-boyfriend that I'm still in love with just got cheated on by with girlfriend and so they are probably breaking up so I am very, very happy right now!!!!

          But ANYways...I have a horse that is up in Houston right now trying his hardest to be sold (as he has been trying for since November, people are just slow and indecisive!). Currently I am riding a 17h TB named Leader, who is in first place currently for the horses-I-might-buy position. I love Lucky Charms and Pastaroni, chillin' with my homies [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] and spending way too much time online. I usually have "post-spurts" where I post an obscene amount in a short period of time...but that's only when I'm not too busy having a life. Which is oh, 98% of the time.

              I am a 17 year old (almost 18, showing as 17) and I live in Palmer, Alaska. Which is an itty-bitty hick town, with about 50k people.

              I ride slave horses at the barn...usually either a 14hh Connemara gelding (Ghost)or a 16.1 TB/QH mare(Clem). I show (last year) in CHildren's Hunters and 3' Eq. This year I wanna do Children's Jumpers, Mini-Medal, and Eq. But I have to find something to show first. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

              In my "spare" time, I like to do drama at school. I just recently finished owning 10 people. I have one "boyfriend" but who knows how long he will last because *gasp* he doesn't like horses (what was i thinking?) But we say I have 9 boyfriends, because there is too much Rebecca for just one boy!

              I am also somewhat insane, and undiagnosed ADHD.

              Next year I am *hopefully* going to Colo. State.

              Eeks! My horsie looks like a mule!!!

                My name is Niki, I am currently living in Clemson while I attend (duh) Clemson. I am 21 and am graduating in May which means I will be getting the he** out of this horrible place to go ANYWHERE else. But my parents are in Northern VA so thats where I'll end up for a bit.

                I own one very old pony that I got when I was 10 - he is Mr. Chips. I ride a bunch of my trainer's horses down here though - she is the only thing I will miss about being down here - and she is the only reason I would stay!!!

                Oh yeah I almost forgot - I like to party and watch hockey. And the intellectual side of me likes to read for fun *GASP* [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img]

                  I no longer have a real name. I am just simply, RF.

                  That said.. I am almost 21 and a junior @ Clemson University.

                  When I am not at school, I am a trainer close by in Anderson, SC. I do not own (or even lease) a farm, but I board a horse at Ten Oaks Farm. Most of the time though, I work at Katie B Farm, where I train paints (mostly 3yrs and younger) and manage one paint stallion... Impress A San Man. I am currently focusing exclusively on paint breed shows. (english and western)

                  I have one horse, Country Grammar, or Cisco. He is 3 according to the APHA, but his birthday is in May. He is, of course, a paint. Red dun tobiano to be exact.

                  Other than that I have one perfect JRT, Hollywood (more commonly known as Woodi) and one crazy cat (Max).

                  My hobby is sleeping. I dont get to do it enough to call it anything but that. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                    Ok, I'll play.
                    I live in DC, and "work" from home (this way I can tell clients I'm busy with another client, when of course I am off riding).
                    I'm in my 30's, and that sounds bad enough.
                    I got bitten by that irresistible eventing bug last year, and have been leasing a older TB eventer (who thinks he's 4 on a regular basis). But today, I am going out to ride my NEW HORSE for the first time. He's a 17.2 Irish draught cross, and, like all new owners, I'm totally besotted with him.
                    He's about to get surgery for a bone chip, though, so I'll be feeding him carrots and handwalking him, instead of eventing him, this spring [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]...it's an investment in our future, which I hope will be long, happy, and high-speed (he's good at that part, I know).

                      My name is Dee and I'm 23. I'm currently a graduate student working on my MBA (Econ is not fun! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img] ) Anyway, I live just outside of Cleveland and have been riding since I was six (it's all my mom's fault, she gave me and my brother and sister riding lessons because she thought that's what a good mom does. I'm the only one that was hooked from day one...so blame the obsession on my mom!)

                      I have a horse by default. My friend left town to do some "soul searching" and I now have his horse. I don't mind beacuse that is extra ride time! I usually lease a school horse from the barn during the summer to show.

                      Other than that, I have a mutt named Hank and an old cat named Cat.

                        Ok, I'll take a shot.

                        I'm Nellie, I'm 15(turning 16 in 9 days!) I'm from N.H.

                        I own one horse, a paint mare, who is turning 4, but acts like 10.

                        I'm a sophomore, and am counting down to summer, only 1/2 way to go! Mid-Term week is this week [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

                        I have been riding since I was 2 but started lessons when I was 6.

                        Outside of school, I am looking into collges, I want to go out west! My friend is mostlikely going to some college out in Utah, it would be nice to go out there too, but I'll have to wait... [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

                          I'm 16 and currently live in land of the Latin (Puerto Rico) [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

                          I own one horse named Beezer.He is a 5 year old tb/arab.

                          I'm a Floridian, but my mom got transfered here 6 months ago-I'm not having fun I own a hunter, and love it-however, they only do jumpers here-and very little of that.

                          My best friend is ErinB, the kooky girl that posted this topic.

                          Let's see... I'd like to graduate with a degree in elementary education and a minor in journalism.

                          Hobbies include: Slaving after my horse I love too much-and slaving over my homeowork I love so little [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

                          They all think I'm anorexic, even my grandmother. I'm being taken to a nutrisionist as a result of my pediatricion (I tried many times to spell that, can't [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img] ) jumping to conclusions when my father mentioned 'mental' at my last checkup.

                          My horse keeps me happy, and I have no friends. la la la-life goes on [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

                              I'm Laura and I'm 19. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img] I live in upstate New York (by Albany) and go to Cazenovia College where I major in Equine Business Management. I'm on the IHSA team there but am taking the semester off for medical reasons.

                              I like to play soccer, ride (duh!), read, take pictures, hang out with my friends, travel, etc.

                              Currently I own one horse, my adorable first pony (pic attached). This summer I'll be leasing an Appendix mare and showing her in the hunters and possibly adult eq. And I'll be doing the jumpers on some of my trainer's horses. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif[/img] I mostly show in western Mass.

                                Alrighty then...

                                My name's Ellen, and I'm exactly 2 months away from being 21...okay, so I'm still only 20. But it sounds cooler the other way. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img] I'm from Baltimore originally, but I live in Chambersburg, PA at the moment for school. I'm a junior, and my major is Equestrian Studies/English.

                                I have a QHx gelding named Dunn By Picasso (Dunn), who's 13 this year. I've had him for about a year and a half now, and we're hopefully going to move up to the A/A hunters this year. Right now we do the 2'6 (Pre-Adult when the show has it) and some equitation. He lives in Maryland, so I go home most weekends to work with him. When I'm at school, I ride a QH named Kid, who's kinda green and pretty silly, but he's a lot of fun.

                                I occasionally play flute, something that I used to do all the time before college. My friends and I are hardcore movie buffs (seeing as how there's nothing else to do around here. We have to drive to Hagerstown to even get to a decent movie theater), and we spend way too much money that we don't have seeing movies that aren't actually worth the trouble.

                                        Horse, thou truly are a creature without equal, for thou fliest without wings and conquerest without sword.
