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 guess I just don't understand how the perfect fit for you in January was a horse who couldn't jump (where you describe yourself as a pleasure rider with an eye to dressage clinics), in February, a horse who might be the perfect fit is 10 years old and unbroken, and then in March you are offering to put a show record on a level 5 and 6 jumper in Florida. You've also written about how you are looking to show a hunter, and you've mentioned you want to breed at least twice. You've asked about horses in California (the owner wanted it to remain on the West Coast), in Michigan, in Tennessee, in Georgia as well as some in Virginia. You want the "perfect fit" but at least twice have offered to pick up a horse sight unseen, and apparently without even hearing details from the owner.

    I don't know that it makes you a dealer, but it does make you look inconsistent.

        I have no idea what the facts really are, all I did was go back and read your previous posts.

              I don't make a concerted effort to reconstruct COTHers real-time events and lives.

              The only thing that did catch my eye is "I can pick him up this weekend." I do understand as how it would be convenient to meet the horse while you are in the area. As an owner of a free riding horse, I'd wonder why you didn't want to at least check him out and do the In The Driveway/Down Home PPE. I'd be worried if someone implied they'd take my horse sight unseen.

                Thanks for the concern MVP. I am in fact a knowledgable horsewomen who just wants the right horse. I was heading up to PA to a friends house and was just trying to make the trip easier for everyone. I can understand where some people might be concerned. If Buttons, is still available, I would love to see pics and talk to homeopener. I would give him a great lifelong home.

                  I know that this thread is old, but I just wanted to post that you are right on the money, SMF. This poster has owned approximately 15 horses in the past 2-3 years. She buys one, has it for about 30-60 days (sometimes even less), and then she trades it or dumps it with a hack trainer down in Waynesboro, VA who is known for starving horses.

                  I personally saw firsthand one horse that she bought where she was specifically told that the horse needed to be on joint supplements. She never put him on the supplements and then wondered why he was slightly "off." He was a LOVELY and sweet horse and he literally stood in a dirty stall for the 30 days or so that she "owned" him before sending him back to the seller. (She was a self-care boarder that never cleaned her stalls.) Never once did he get turnout, and after the first few rides, she never got back on him again. That horse is now showing in the children's jumpers up in Pennsylvania.

                  I would never, EVER, in good consciousness, let any horse go to this person for any reason.

                      I should also add that this person is located in the Northern VA area. I can provide additional details privately for anyone who is interested.

                            I saw that, too. I hope that the horse she's transporting isn't one from the Giveaways forum.

                            The laughable part is that she always promises every horse "a forever home." She also keeps searching for horses for her "son." Her son doesn't even live with her anymore and now lives out of state with his dad, who left her. Three guesses as to why he left her.

                                        I don't know what you're on or what you're smoking. Oh, wait...nevermind. Your "facts" are once again, inaccurate. I couldn't care less about you, but am merely concerned about the lovely horses and ponies who might end up in less than pleasant situations if they were to fall into your hands. Such as ending up with someone who won't feed them, which you are quite aware of.
