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'm not going to Vegas this time around, but I've passed the info on to friends.

      Hi: I am wondering if it might be a good idea to also post this in the world cup forum. It might get buried here, and there aren't so many threads over there.
      The virtual "woodshed" seems the only remedy for willful fools .

        Oh no! I don't land until 8:30am on Friday! I would love to get with breeders who are attending, however.

              Coffee with Jan Brink? Edward Gal?


              I have more confirmation re the line-up; this should be an outstanding panel! Speakers (or I think it is a panel to ask questions to) include Jan Brink, Edward Gal and Briar's breeder, Hans-Yngve Göransson. We will also be hearing from some of the top horse people in Sweden: Jan-Ove Olsson, the vice-president of the stallion commitee, a judge on conformation and gaits; Karl-Henrik Heimdahl, Breeding manager of the national stud of Flyinge, previous president of the stallion , and Bo Jenå, the chef equipe of the national dressage team of Sweden, International judge in dressage and the main teacher of dressage at Flyinge, The National stud of Sweden.We hope to have some other top international riders as well... Really an incredible panel.

              Also--everyone is welcome! If you love dressage, or jumping, or horse breeding, this will a really fun, educational event right before the dressage starts on Friday. The only thing you need is a ticket to the dressage... although this event is through the combined efforts of both the Swedish and KWPN studbooks, we will be discussing all sorts of things about horse breeding and what these top competitors look for.

              For SWANA members (and former members, or anyone interested in SWANA) -we hope to have several get-togethers--check back for more info, or email me.

              Thanks, hope to see you there!

                Win a County saddle!

                I forgot this part--it's great!

                A saddle will be given away! You have a chance to win a beautiful new County saddle, the favorite saddle of Lingh. Come to booth 405, Tailwinds Farm, on Wednesday and Thursday to sign up for a chance to win the saddle. I think you maybe have to actually come to the Breeders' Meeting to win--I will find out.

                      Swedish Studbook Hosts Best of Three Worlds Breeders’ Meeting
                      April 17 at the World Cup Finals
                      Sign Up to Win a Breeding to Briar 899 or a County Saddle

                      Las Vegas, NV--The Swedish Studbook (ASVH) welcomes guests to a unique breeders’ meeting at the Thomas & Mack Arena on Friday April 17. The event kicks off at 8:00 a.m. sharp during the Rolex FEI World Cup Finals in Las Vegas. The ASVH hopes to create an inspiring experience for breeders across borders. Best of Three Worlds has been chosen for the theme for this meeting as international guests arrive from Sweden, the Netherlands, and, of course, the U.S.A. The vice president of the studbook’s Stallion Committee, Jan-Ove Olsson, will represent the ASVH in Las Vegas.

                      The Swedish Studbook, in cooperation with Karin Reid Offield, owner of the breeding stallion Lingh, invites everyone interested in learning about breeding to attend this great event. Attendees will enjoy the unique behind the scènes setting of the early morning warm-up of the World Cup Finals, which was arranged with the help of Las Vegas Events, producers of the show. Attendees must have a ticket to the dressage session on Friday to attend the breeders’ meeting. (The box office will open at 8:00 a.m. on Friday morning for last minute ticket sales.)

                      Both dressage and jumping breeders will find topics and speakers of interest. Subjects include the development of breeding internationally, relationships between studbooks and countries, management of top horses in breeding and cooperation between breeders and riders. Top riders, trainers and owners from around the world have confirmed their attendance at the meeting. The commercial issues of the breeding world will also be discussed, including the importance of export, active efforts in marketing and establishing contacts. The sessions will be interactive with attendees invited to ask questions of the speakers.

                      As special invited guest speakers, the Royal Dutch Warmblood Studbook (KWPN) and the Swedish Warmblood Association of North America (SWANA) will share information about their systems and organizations. Points of interest include, the future development of the American sporthorse breeding market and how to encourage young equestrians to become breeders.

                      Flyinge, the Swedish National Stud, will also make a special presentation. The newly appointed breeding manager, Karl-Henrik Heimdahl, will share Flyinge’s vision of the future. Flyinge will also participate this fall in the hosting of the annual meeting of the World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses (WBSFH) and is proud to take an active role in international breeding.

                      Meeting attendees have a chance to win a County Saddle, the saddle recommended by the winner of the 2005 Las Vegas World Cup Grand Prix--Lingh himself. In addition, a breeding to Briar 899 has been donated by the stallion’s breeder and owner Hans-Yngve Göransson. Briar has competed in eight World Cups, three Olympic Games, four European Championships and two World Championships. Stop by booth 405 (Tailwinds Farm) in the Cox Pavilion in the Thomas & Mack Center to register to win the saddle and the breeding to Briar 899.

                      Breeding has become an essential part of the modern equestrian culture and the 2009 ASVH Breeders’ Meeting showcases the best of the three worlds and will hopefully create a new way of including breeders in international equestrian events in the future.

                      An educational and entertaining encounter for everyone sharing an interest in sport horse breeding begins Friday morning April 17 at the Thomas & Mack Center. Join us 8:00 – 9:30 a.m. at arena section 227, balcony level.

                      For those enthusiasts seeking even more time to explore their passion, they can visit Harrah’s, the host hotel for the AVSH. Breeders can gather for late dinners and discussions of each day’s events. There is a SWANA members cocktail party at 4:00-6:00 pm on Saturday at the Embassy Suites. Karl-Henrick Heimdahl, Jan-Ove Olsson and Bo Jena will be there!
