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!

  • Horse related items needed- pictures post #9 from last years event

    Well it's that time of year again that I reach out to the wonderful COTH community asking for any horse related items be donated for this years Saddle Up for St. Jude trail ride. As many of you may remember, I lost my niece Savannah just two years ago to childhood cancer so this event is very close to my heart. http://youtu.be/Qoy0kdlTqQw.
    This will actually be my 9th year hosting this event, having started it long before Savannah was diagnosed, and I certainly can't stop now. So I am asking that you dig thru your tack trunk, barn, videos, books, decor, clothing, etc and look for items that you no longer want or need. Used items will be used for the silent auction and new items can be used for door prizes or prizes for the person that raises the most money thru sponsorship. Nothing will be refused, great or small it ALL makes a difference! Tax deductible of course, I will send reciepts for all donations. Please look into your hearts and barns to help the children and families struggling with childhood cancer. Thank you as always for reading and considering donating!
    Donations can be sent to:

            I came home friday to find an incredibly generous box of tack donated for the St. Jude ride. It truly made my week! Since I am not sure if you want to stay anonymous I won't list your name but please know that I am truly greatful for the tack donation and excellant timing of your tack purging. This was my first donation of the year and makes me hope this is going to be another fantastic year for the children of St. Judes. I am going to attempt a link for pictures from last years ride and silent auction, forgive me if it doesn't work (not great at this). It is a link on my facebook group, so you may need to request to join? https://www.facebook.com/home.php?re...662966/photos/

                  Finally Some Pictures

                  I'm finally getting some of the pictures up from last year's ride. And just to show we're really actual people, the first includes equislover and me (ParadoxFarm). I'm in the purple scarf.

                  Though we all ride different disciplines at home, almost all of us ride western on these trails because of the hills! I rode in my h/j saddle once on the trails and just about flipped right off the back of it on a steep hill. Never again.

                  But some of my favorite pics from the event include:

                    Thank you ParadoxFarm for posting the links to the pictures. I have to say, this is my personal favorite though I may be partial as they are my biggest supporters.

                    On a serious note, the first reciept went out this morning, I apologize for the delay however I was waiting on the tax receipts before sending. Please do keep us in mind should you come across anything you no longer want or need. We are determined to win this battle no family should ever face.
                    Thank you all for your support.

                      Hello! I have been so very busy with personal stuff but hopefully got something in this months newsletter. If not it will be in next month. I have approached our local businesses and will stop in to talk to them soon. How is it going so far?

                        Great news horsefaierie, thank you for all you do! I have recieved one donation thus far from a very generous COTHer. So definately off to a slow start but hoping it picks up soon. No word from co-op yet if they will donate the western saddle for the grand prize but I am hoping and praying. I can't stress enough, anything is appreciated, no matter how great or small. We can make a difference!

                            I have some ideas on what I can send--please, please PM me. That video linked in your OP had the tears pouring. My cousin's son is a cancer survivor, diagnosed at age 7...the same age as my eldest now. He lost his leg, but has lost nothing else (certainly not the fire that is in the family blood, heh). He's 15 now.

                            bcody, funny seeing you here! I hardly ever see you on COTH. But it doesn't surprise me it would be in a thread like this.

                              Sending a pm now! This is an incredibly tough year so absolutely anything will be greatly accepted. My family still morns the loss of Savannah daily and dreams for the day when other children don't have to suffer the same fate. I am so glad your cousin's son won his battle!

                                      Well, two contributors so far! Our local tack shop Bridles and Britches has made a donation and one of our feed stores. A local farm has told me to remind them to get a box together as well. SLow start but picking up some momentum!
