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!

        Just saw my post and I have to correct two things real quick.

        # 20. Should have read 20,000 threads on the same topic, not 20,000 topics on the same thing.

        # 22. The last line should have read: To ALL the servicemembers, I wish you guys a SAFE ride home, not sfe.

        My fault! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

                  1. Your Favorite Thread of the Year
                  Question for Merry - this thread had six degrees of Kevin Bacon, brought back so many memories, brought old friends back together, brought new friends together and showed just how many wild ho-bags we've got here when let loose with a few margaritas!

                  2. Thread that has impacted you the most

                  All the threads about 9/11, but especially the one where we couldn't find In Why Cee and other "missing" BBers.

                  3. Thread that just wouldn't die

                  Horsey Christians and Paul V

                  4. Thread that you wish had never died

                  Moesha's soap opera

                  5. Topic that has given you re-occuring nightmares

                  Paul V and all those ratbaggy whiny posts about helmets

                  6. Person who posts for no reason but to see their name in lights

                  You mean I have to narrow it down to one person? Oooooh, the pain!

                  7. Best username

                  In Why Cee, Findeight

                  8. Most annoying username

                  Can't say that, it would be rude

                  9. Most inspirational poster

                  So many! Weatherford, Dru, Portia's legal finesse, Linda Allen's Uber Expertise, and on and on

                  10. Poster in most need of visiting a sanitarium

                  Darling Colin and Moesha - but only if they share all their news with daily reports!!

                  11. Poster whose threads you look most forward to reading

                  Weatherford, Dublin, Portia, Merry and Beezer

                  12. Poster who you want to come back as in your next life

                  Linda Allen

                  13. Poster who you most want to meet in person

                  Well I have been fortunate enough to meet the darling Chef (at my own office no less) and Merry. Taryn and I board at the same barn, so I get to see her a few times a week! Khobstetter gave my brother and I our very first hunt seat lessons! AAJumper, Akrogirl and Cactuskate met up with Taryn and me at The Oaks, where we just missed Chef and N2Jumper. Dublin and I are possibly going to meet soon, and as many BBers as possible will be having dinner at Indio!

                  And MAD and I are on the phone a lot, which introduced me to Alice Debaney which hooked me up with Princess Haya, who is SUCH a doll for everything she did getting our team down to Madrid!

                  But the list of BBers I want to meet is endless. Everyone I email, everyone who I have posted "with" and pretty much everyone else, as well. Can't we have a big party at Devon one year?

                  And Dru has not only become a dear friend, but always keeps everyone here up to date on the latest with approved helmets.

                  But NOT Dude, although he is not actually a BBer.


                  14. Clique that you most want to be a member of

                  But I already AM in the California clique!

                  15. Poster whose horse you would jump in front of a train for

                  Oh, I no longer do jumpers, only do dressage.

                  16. Poster that always puts you in a good mood

                  The list is endless!

                  17. Most Valuable Friend/s that you have gained as a result of this BB

                  I can't narrow this down to one person, I just love my BB friends so much, but I am closest to Dublin

                  18. Most memorable event from the BB this year

                  Flashing GM the thong!

                  19. Poster who you want to "vote off the island"

                  I would be a meanie if I listed them - but pretty much everyone here is great

                  20. Thing you would change most about the BB

                  I wish it would play music when you clicked on. Like "You Shook Me All Night Long.

                  21. What you like best about the BB

                  How much I have learned from everyone's else's vast experience. Ane the poeple I have met, have "met" online, and have re-met!

                  22. Has any - one/thing/topic - changed the way you live?

                  I am now even more of a bitch about wearing approved helmets that I was before.

                  23. In general - how was 2001 for you?

                  Every day that we are blessed with is a gift.

                    1. Your Favorite Thread of the Year - You're so Vain part one and the sequel;

                    2. Thread that has impacted you the most - Who could have imagined that a singular thread, announcing the crash of the first plane into the WTC, on the morning of September 11th will be forever etched in my mind;

                    3. Thread that just wouldn't die - Must agree, the Christians who ride;

                    4. Thread that you wish had never died - Any thread, rightfully, teasing Jair [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] ;

                    5. Topic that has given you re-occuring nightmares - Without a doubt the terribly upsetting MJ thread;

                    6. Person who posts for no reason but to see their name in lights - Oh, that'd be me;

                    7. Best username - Everythingbutwings, Sea Urchin, Egon Trip, Velveeta;

                    8. Most annoying username - Any that's misspelt;

                    9. Most inspirational poster - There are so many wonderfully witty, intelligent, compassionate and informative posters on this BB, so I hope no one's offended if they're not included.

                    -For their compassion, grace, and strength of character...Louise, Wingsy, Duffy, Beezer, Jair, Lordhelpus, Robby Johnson;

                    -Those who I'd adopt as a younger sister...VTRider, Tin, slugger, dogchushu, miniwelsh, kachoo, Erin, lisamarie8; I'd include Colin here but would bankrupt myself bailing her out of jail;

                    -My virtual younger brothers...Jair, Robby Johnson, Moesha;

                    -My virtual grandfather...Sea Urchin;

                    10. Poster in most need of visiting a sanitarium - Hmmm...

                    13. Poster who you most want to meet in person - Oh so many. The CA cliquesters, Merry, Beezer, Coreene, Dublin, Justalurker, AAJumper; the Virginians/Marylanders, ETBW, Inverness, MargaretF, Moesha; the Southern Belles, DMK, Portia, Lordhelpus, M O'Connor, vineyridge; and of course I need to get myself to Ireland to horse-shop with Weatherford. I'd like to be the Jack Kerouac of the BB next year and take to the road to meet so many of you.


                    14. Clique that you most want to be a member of - The Anti Helmet-Thread Clique;


                    15. Poster whose horse you would jump in front of a train for - No doubt, mazzy's;

                    21. What you like best about the BB - The camraderie, the debates, the wit, the information, the banter. The posters define this BB and the greatness of the COTH BB is truly a reflection of how awesomely wonderful so many of you are;


                    22. Has any - one/thing/topic - changed the way you live? I no longer have pantylines;


                    23. In general - how was 2001 for you?
                    Well, as I age, it seems my children do too. I'm shocked that my daughter (my first baby) is on the verge of adolescence and that Sumo will turn 4 (oh sniff, sniff) in less than two weeks time.

                    I am reminded, though, with each passing year that I've effectively procrastinated for yet another year and have neglected to write Thegreatnovelthat begstobewritten.

                        1. Your Favorite Thread of the Year - The GM classes; I loved reading those and can't believe how much I learned from them.

                        2. Thread that has impacted you the most - I've gotta go with the crowd here and say the 9/11 threads.

                        3. Thread that just wouldn't die - Don't make me say the "H" word!

                        4. Thread that you wish had never died - The "show your photos from riding in the olden days" thread (don't remember it's exact name), I LOVED those pics.

                        5. Topic that has given you re-occuring nightmares - The "Worst Jumping Photos" threads... I had visions of awful crashes in my head for days.

                        6. Person who posts for no reason but to see thei name in lights - No one on THIS board, surely not.

                        7. Best username - Brylintrip; Findeight.

                        8. Most annoying username - Stupid Child; Oblivious Jumper (I have nothing against you guys, I just don't understand using a name to insult yourself).

                        9. Most inspirational poster - reginapony, Kachoo, Chanda, and Inverness (I'm so glad there's another beginner out there).

                        10. Poster in most need of visiting a sanitarium - I would say Colin, but that would take her away from the BB and she's much too entertaining.

                        11. Poster whose threads you look most forward to reading - ETBW (though she always makes me hungry!)

                        12. Poster who you want to come back as in your next life - Kachoo, she seems like she has such fun and lot of talent.

                        13. Poster who you most want to meet in person - A lot of them, but if I had to pick, I'd say DMK and Heidi; both seem like extremely intelligent, interesting people.

                        14. Clique that you most want to be a member of - The MD/VA clique! They're so close to me for crying out loud!

                        15. Poster whose horse you would jump in front of a train for - Gotta say Fairweather's Phoenix. After seeing him at FPP and hearing his story, that horsey earned a place in my heart.

                        16. Poster that always puts you in a good mood - Flash ALWAYS makes me laugh.

                        17. Most Valuable Friend/s that you have gained as a result of this BB - Everyone I met at FPP was wonderful. And Flash, even though she thinks she has no friends, is fun to watch at shows (she rides very well and has a great horsey).

                        18. Most memorable event from the BB this year - The COTH rescue a horse effort.

                        19. Poster who you want to "vote off the island - I'm going to excercise my right to remain silent on this one.

                        20. Thing you would change most about the BB - More smilees! Spellchecker!

                        21. What you like best about the BB - I've learned a ton here, and it's the best tool around to help me procrastinate at work!

                        22. Has any - one/thing/topic - changed the way you live? I'm a MUCH better procrastinator these days.

                        23. In general - how was 2001 for you? Ugh. Up and down and down and up and then down again. But it's ending on a good note!

                            I come here to find that only one person likes me! (well, maybe Ms. Rid too, but I think her vote for me was a hidden insult [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img])

                            Oh well. Too bad. I still have opinions. (but gawwwwshhh no one here likes me? NO TAKERS? Going once...)

                            1. Your Favorite Thread of the Year - The Juniors Clique thread was amazing, of course. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]


                            2. Thread that has impacted you the most - The 9/11 ones.

                            7. Best username - Special*K was a good one (or however she spelled it), makes me wish I had a K name. I also like how everyone can shorten ETBW's real user name.


                            8. Most annoying username - FEATHERED BUBBLE HEAD! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                            13. Poster who you most want to meet in person - Spaz, JumperEq, Steve, etc. etc. etc. from the juniors clique, also I'd like to meet the moderators and get their autographs. And of course, ETBW and the Winglet.


                            14. Clique that you most want to be a member of - I'm already a member of the good ones, silly.

                            15. Poster whose horse you would jump in front of a train for - Kachoo, Chanda, ETBW's Maddie.

                            16. Poster that always puts you in a good mood - I'm always in a good mood ( [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img] ) but Kachoo does a pretty good job of it if I'm having an "off" day.

                            19. Poster who you want to "vote off the island - My lips are sealed, thank you.


                            20. Thing you would change most about the BB - Hmmm... nothing! Though I would like to change my title from BB Guide to BB Goddess. Think you can arrange that, Erin? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                            21. What you like best about the BB - The response time, LOL! I also love the camaraderie and the freedom of speech.

                            22. Has any - one/thing/topic - changed the way you live? I don't think anything could do that, my habits are firmly etched into my darling little brain.

                            23. In general - how was 2001 for you?
                            Ehhhh.... I wouldn't do it again.

                                I find this quite hilarious. Well over half of these posts say "most annoying username:- ObiliviousJumper." To clue those of you that don't understand this 'username' in... I selected this name quite meticuliously. I feel that when I mess up on my courses in the classes I am just like ugh i dont know but i feel like so incredibly oblivious. like duh.. so i find it not so nice that you guys are sitting here and like totally hating me b/c of my opinion. I kinda think thats shallow in some ways. I mean, I seriously don't care who hates me but, isnt it nice to have people that dont hate you? oh yeah and for those of you wondering, I purposely spelled Oblivious wrong b/c that made an even better touch to the name. If it REALLLLY bugs you, i suppose i could just change it!

                                  Most Valuable Friend/s that you have gained as a result of this BB - bumpkin, Coreene, MO, wty, CWP primarily, and everyone else I have e-mailed back and forth with this past year. You're 'all good' and I am so happy to know you....

                                  Most memorable event from the BB this year - the sense of community we all felt in the days following September 11th. Travelling to Washington to see bumpkin again, meeting wty, and so many wonderful phone conversations with both bumpkin and Coreene throughout the year.

                                  Poster who you want to "vote off the island" - several juniors from the sneaking by thread, those who misrepresent themselves

                                  Thing you would change most about the BB - that many of the original posters on the bb would come back or post more frequently than they do. That there were more substantive topics, and less that illustrate the "hunter princess" stereotype in action.

                                  What you like best about the BB - the many wonderful friends that I have made, and the way it keeps me in touch with the horse show world

                                  Has any one thing/topic changed the way you live - I appreciate each day of my life, my family and my friends, even more since September 11th.

                                  In general - how was 2001 for you? It had memorable highs and lows. I'm looking forward to 2002!

                                    ... Wouldn't it be something if you found out that in real life I chased the neighbor kids off my lawn and made crank phone calls? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                                    I'll play and answer a few, since I can't possibly single out all the wonderful horses & people I've met here:

                                    2. Which thread impacted me the most?
                                    The one that spawned "The Inverness Problem" because it caused me to wonder just what it is that my doctor sees...

                                    5. The topic that gave me nightmares:
                                    Gotta go with the Musical Jumper saga, especially because I'd sent her my Pessoa pad that she wanted, when I probably should've been doing something else.

                                    9. Most inspirational poster:
                                    Reginapony. The embodiment of the Triumph of the Human Spirit. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

                                    10. Who needs to visit a sanitarium?
                                    Oh, that would be me. Can someone give me a ride?

                                    12. Who do I want to be in my next life?
                                    Jair. I KNEW I should've stuck with that archaelogy major in college! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_mad.gif[/img]

                                    18. Most memorable event on the BB?
                                    Lord Helpus' amazing feat (along with her unsung heroes behind the scenes) who put together the virtual horse show for charity.

                                    20. What would I like to change on the BB?
                                    Have Infopop install some sort of truth serum filter so when a mean-spirited troll comes on, or someone who's blatantly lying about themself and their accomplishments/knowledge/experience, the words they type will be in neon pink.

                                    22. Has there been any change in the way I live due to the BB?
                                    Yes. I no longer fear Canadians. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img]

                                      I'm all choked up! Willem and I can't wait to meet you, Dave and Lucy. We feel the same way.

                                      HEY - maybe you can fly down early on a Saturday a.m. and go pull an overnighter in Indio with the other BBers! One of the boarders at our barn owns a hotel/motel very close by. Could Lucy stand it without you for a night?

                                        Yea! Dublin likes my screen name! I was actually thinking of changing it because it's kinda dorky and a lot of people have asked me what the heck it means (FYI, it means most of my shoes have teeth marks in them from teething canines!)

                                        Now, now Oblvious, no one said they hated you. And I'm really sorry if I hurt your feelings with my post. If it makes you feel any better, Moesha called me "dog tissue" at FPP he thought my name was so wierd! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] I thought that was hilarious!

                                        It's just that the story behind your name isn't apparent to most of us who read it. Because of that it seems, to me at least, either incredibly self denegrating or that you take pride in being oblivious. I realise, from your post, that isn't what you meant. But I didn't know that before and unless everyone knows the background, that name really isn't the best "advertising" for you.

                                        Again, I'm very sorry to have hurt your feelings. I really didn't mean anything against you personally. Feel free to hate my user name as much as you want! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

I was going to a show to watch and the people I was going with were all dressed up in white breeches, white shirts, black coats, hair loose, and complete with gloves and whips. The scary thing is, one of those persons was Nickelodian...there was also a midget somehow involved, but we won't go into that.

                                          11. Poster whose threads you look most forward to reading - ErinB and Nickelodians (just because I know what she is talking about)
                                          12. Poster who you want to come back as in your enxt life - Kachoo! Spruce Meadows? That is sooo awesome!
                                          13. Poster who you most want to meet in person - ErinB of course!! (One day my dear...one day). And Whit, Ponyperson, Steve, Feathered Bubble Head, and all the other perfect juniors [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]
                                          14. Clique that you most want to be a member of - You mean theirs life outside the Junior Clique?15. Poster whose horse you would jump in front of a train for - Depends on if the train would stop or not...

                                          18. Most memorable event from the BB this year - 9/11
                                          19. Poster who you want to "vote off the island" -Does the vote have to be unanymous?

                                          23. In general - how was 2001 for you? Good until high school...high school sucks.
