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!

      So Easy, our barn used to go to the Pickering Horse and Pony Show every year in April. It was held in a beautiful location with a great outside course. Probably the same place (?)

        is the benefit for the Pony Club ... it used to be at Mrs. Streeters farm on Seven Oaks Road, lately is at the Ludwigs Corner Horse Show Grounds ... the Pickering Hunter Trials is a whole different thing. Put on by the Hunt to show off the field hunters, it is on one of the Detwilers farms off of Rt 113. The fence Star and I are jumping is the last or next to last of a course that is over a mile long, and includes a LONG downhill gallop across a huge field - what a rush! Longer ago, when King showed there, it was at the farm that now belongs to Harry and Marjorie Gill on Green Lane - it was then Josie Taylors place. WOW! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

            You get to see the stadium jumping phase of the 1971 National PC Rally - I had my B for about a month before Regional, qualified for the Regional Team (back in those days, the winning Club Team from Regional Rally went to National. Our Club Team went in 1972 to Va. and 1973 to OMAHA - where we won [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] ) This rally was held on the Firestones Estate in Ohio. I also just learned to drive a truck and trailer, so my mother and I loaded this mare, and my teammates appy stallion in the trailer, and drove for 6 hours. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] We had a blast back then!

                Jimmy Bonham was Max and Nancy Bonham's son. Jimmy currently lives in Las Vegas and is doing course designs and other things. Max's wife Nancy is currently in a nursing home in Camden, SC suffering from painful arthritis/osteoporosis in her back. Hopefully she will regain enough mobility to return to her home in the hunt country. Max passed away quite some time ago now.

                  So sorry to hear that Nancy is laid up. She was at all the big KHP shows this past summer with corgi's and shirt swatches.

                  I had not seen her in 20 some years (she had "Blossom" then) and I thought that she looked just great as recently as Sept..

                  And I am certainly impressed by SoEasy's release. This pic should go to a George Morris Clinic in PH and see what he says...

                            and I have a question!
                            This is me, early 80s at a hunter show at our barn in Chester County, PA. The horse I am riding was known as Willy - we raised him from a weanling.
                            Does anyone out there recognize him? LOL

                                I was thinking that I have no idea about the horse, but the guy in the background sure looks like David Orlando. Then I realized Davey O would be about five then!

                                  This is me back in the summer of 1973 at Woodstock in Vermont showing one of my Aunt's yearling Connemara ponies in hand...

                                  I was NOT showing much and was growing like crazy. The patent leather tops on the boots were NOT a fashion statement - they were to make the boots as tall as possible (obviously NOT tall enough)!! The jacket was bought at a tag sale, but it was a lovely color - much more "in" these days than it was back then! My shirt was probably the only thing that was purchased new. I loved it. It was made of a material called Viyella - almost a silky flannely feel. LOL And I monogrammed my own choker. (Yes, I was into monograms even back then [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] ) And note the hair do! LOLOL Oh well. The filly won everything, so who cares, right?

                                    Lovely animal! I can see that those expensive debutante lessons paid off, you have perfected the Vanna stance. I think you should start a new career as a model! Between this picture and the ones I've seen from Middleburg National and Mosby's, You could be the next "new look". Hunter Chic but Model exotic......Ask for the big bucks and don't forget me and maybe a commission....LOL

                                      And I have no guesses on Willy!! It was not all that long ago that he was a top Junior Hunter! And Weatherford is right, we sold him to Derbydown/Louise Serio. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif[/img]

                                        The image of me flipping letters, a la Vanna, is just too intimidating, I'm afraid! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] But if Monty Hall or whoever makes the call, believe me, you're first on the list for a HUGE commission! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
