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 believe so titan. I guess there aren't any hard and fast rules on color, they just need to have the jacket, shirt, breeches, boots and helmet. And with western it is shirt, pants and boot with heel.

      THANKS!

                We are still in need of western wear for girls and ladies and for English, a pair of size 30 breeches and a pair of size 10 (15-1/2 calf) boots for our team. If anyone has anything they can spare we would be so grateful!

                Thanks!

                  I haven't forgotten the helmet! Just looking for the right box (we often get shipments in boxes with an interior styrofoam box, which I think is the best way to ship it).

                  I will see what I have re breeches. Do they need to be stretchy? I am not home now, but maybe I have something I can include in the box. Can't help with the Western stuff.

                        Mine will go out tonight - just found the box I was looking for. No breeches off hand, but I'll keep my eyes peeled.

                            I know you received it...I tracked it. Hope the styrofoam box kept the helmet safe!

                            (I am now freakishly tracking everything since I sent out a prized reagent to a colleague in Los Angeles...unfortunately, the package was wiped out by Ike at our end, so now I worry with everything I send out.)

                              We got it DG! Thank you! It's gorgeous!

                              I have been knocked out for over a week now with a nasty cold and haven't been around to answer.

                              Titan, thank you for all you sent as well...we appreciate it! The hair bows we completely forgot about and it was great to see them! whew!

                              I am having a hard time matching up screen name to real name so if I leave anyone out it isn't intentional and I apologize! If you all could be so kind as to pm me or email me with your screen names, what you sent and your first name...that way I can be sure to get your thanks you's out to you!

                              We could not have done this without your help, and we are so very grateful!

                                I hope you found all the items that you needed. I did receive a donor form from Stable Movements but I was under the impression STAT was the 501 that would issue receipts for tax purposes.

                                  I might still have a navy huntcoat in my closet. Or maybe its black, I can't remember. Anyways, I think its a childs size 14 or 16, and one of the buttons is missing. Picked it up at a garage sale and my horse was sold before I ever wore it. I have a pair of paddock boots that are size 8 or 9 and gently used, possibly some breeches and a showshirt too. Problem? I have NO idea where any of it has migrated to. If you can still use it, I will try and hunt for it.

                                    How Did The Kids Do ?

                                    Read on Stablemovements website that the games were to have been this past weekend. . . . so how did the kids do?

                                      Ok...here's the news...ready!?!??!

                                      Our kids took 1st in English Equitation, and 3rd in English Trail and 3rd in Western Equitation and 5th in Western Trail.

                                      There were over 90 entrants, and let's just say...we couldn't be prouder of our kids. They worked so hard!

                                      My daughter bowed out the last minute though She has Asperger's and the stress was really making her not well. She had a panic attack while riding during the dress rehearsal so we had a heart to heart and the flood gates opened. But it's all for the good, she back to loving riding and being with the horses in the way that she enjoys them the most. Maybe by spring she'll have her "show legs", but if not...that's ok too

                                      I'm working on the dress rehearsal photos, and Rosey, who trained the kids has some for me too. I'll post them on Stable Movements website sometime this week.

                                      Again, we are absolutely overwhelmed at the generosity we received... especially from COTH. Everyone went so far above and beyond it left us speechless. The kids literally had everything they could need and they could not have done it without your help.
