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!

    Canada will medal because it's going to be a North America & South America sweep

                Well, we're little in population - about l/10th the mighty USA - but we do have an awful lot of north country

                  Yes, I was speaking in terms of geographical size.

                  Just makes me giggle because one of the girls I work with is from Texas and REFUSED to believe it when I told her you could fit the entire state into the province of Quebec. Thank you Wikipedia!

                  I wish the Brits had done better (nice round from Nick and Russell...love them) but I am THRILLED with how we are sitting right now. I want a good result SO BADLY for our team, they really deserve it. I was a little worried about Mac and Ole but could not be happier that I worried for nothing. Mac is such a gentleman and wonderful horseman. I'm so glad we have him on our team. Sorry USA, he's OURS!.

                    I really hope they can make it. What a fantastic boost for the sport if Canada's first (and possibly only, the way were going) came from an equestrian event.

                    But man, are we dynamite in the winter olympics
                    In my opinion, a horse is the animal to have. 1300 pounds of raw muscle, power, grace, and sweat between your legs - it's something you just can't get from a pet hamster.

                      IIRC, the US Pledge of Allegiance has that "one nation under Canada" line.

                      Some people seem to think it's "under God" but that wouldn't make much sense.

                        I'm from USA and yes I'd like for the US to medal, but I have to say I would love for Canada - Ian Millar to bring it home !

                          Would love to see our team medal in the showjumping of course, but as of this morning we no longer have a medal drought. Cdn athletes delivered a three-fer in women's wrestling (gold), pairs rowing (silver), and... um.... something else (bronze). Sorry, I was half-asleep when my clock radio alarm thingy delivered the news. But my brain was at least coherent enough to think, "Finally!"

                            we have two in women's wrestling!

                            I am sure rooting for the Canadian team, but I have learned not to sell the chicken before they are hatched!!! I hope they are on a winning streak but let's just keep cheering them on and not add to the pressure!

                            I would love for Ian to win a medal.. after so many Olympics, he deserves one! And I agree about Mac Cone. I love him and found him to be such a gentleman a few years ago at the Royal! Go Canada Go!

                            PVR is already set to record. I just have to read the instructions as to how to transfer to a VCR tape!

                              Texans also tend to not believe that Alaska is actually bigger than Texas in terms of land mass.....I think they just tend towards delusional.

                                Oh, you guys must have missed the faux pas during the show jumping commentary

                                Apparently Ottawa is a province!

                                I don't remember who they were talking about, but the commentators were telling everyone that this particular rider and a few others all hailed from/trained in the Ottawa area and how amazing it was that there would be so many good riders from such a small province.

                                Paraphrased, as I cannot remember exactly how it was worded -- I was laughing too hard.

                                  Next time you have to deal with a Texan getting all uppity and bragging, just tell them that one could split Alaska in two and Texas would be the 3rd largest state in the Union.

                                    The really sad part is that Ottawa as a CITY encompasses a huge part of Perth (Ian Millar) North Grenville (jill Henslewood) and the commentators where close but no cigar...you're right, Ontario is the province and Ottawa is the capital...BUT imagine having TWO Olympic caliber barns within 20 minutes of you...pretty cooll!!!
                                    Your village is calling. Apparently their idiot is missing!

                                      I remembered after I posted who they were talking about and it was during Jill's ride that they made the comment. Jill is new to me, Ian -- I've been an Ian fan forever.

                                        Pssst Roan, Hull is actually Gatineau now, and is in Quebec.

                                        Kemptville is not in the City of Ottawa. Close, but it's part of Leeds & Grenville, North Grenville to be exact.
