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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

    In hindsight, the farm owners likely wish she had never been permitted to be on the property.​​​​
    I wonder if she was aware that that gun was on the property prior to the shooting? Seems I vaguely remember someone saying on the big thread RC was sleeping outside her horse's stall with the gun at her head for protection. Protection from what or whom I wonder?

        Apparently more than two times? What’s the threshold? Three times? Four times? Five times plus a gold medal?
        Sorry, w, what is BNT?

            BNT = Big Name Trainer as opposed to HB = Half Bronzed or QO = Quasi-Olympian

              Pro tip: The most salient feature of a system is going to "carry over" in the minds of your interlocutors when you use that system to construct an analogy. And it doesn't help you look less manipulative and hostile when you suggest that it shouldn't.

              Now, can someone show me where these extra emojis are hiding? The mind reading segment of the Lady Whatserface Show has been a bust and I'd like to learn how to vomit on this here thread.

                Click on the smiley Icon then click on "more smilies" to see the rest. There isn't a vomit one......I cut and pasted that one from my library. 🤮 here, you can have one too!

                    Dover? Anky? Lars? Who knows in the minds of dressage divas? Shoot, anyone who knows more than me and can teach me something is a BNT in my small world!!!

                      I now understand that in my dominoes analogy that you consider the determinism of the system to be its “most salient” feature, and apologize, again, for not bothering to come up with a different analogy with a non deterministic system.

                        So, a trainer who wouldn't put up with the kind of drama she brings? Can't imagine Anky etc would enjoy their name being associated with hers on more than an acquaintance level.

                          So it has to be a one name type? Like Cher? Or Madonna?

                            I suspect Anky only takes highly qualified, dedicated no-drama riders on as students, other than the random clinic rider.

                              So again, a BNT is one who wouldn't accept her as a client.

                                • As a random side note (I usually post from my phone because my computer is a veritable dinosaur) I'm really enjoying these emojis I can see with my computer.

                                    I wouldn't bet on it but stranger things have happened for enough money and absolute airtight contracts protecting the trainer!

                                      [Sigh. Still no evidence she called CPS.]
                                      One thing stands out: it was reported in the NYT article that when questioned about the call to CPS, her answer was "she did not recall placing the call to child services." So, she is able to remember minute details before, during, and after being shot. Yet this detail - did she dial a phone and make a report to an agency - which would have happened prior to any shooting/trauma is somehow foggy? But other contemporaneous actions (she self-reports calling SS, installing cameras, calling 911, etc.) are not foggy.

                                      While her statement that she cannot recall calling CPS is not evidence, it is notable that she cannot provide a yes or no answer when she insists on black and white certainty wrt her recall of almost every other aspect of the events leading up to and occurring on the day of the shooting. It strongly suggests she knows she cannot deny making the call (e.g., there is evidence and it will be produced at trial) but admitting it would look bad, so she simply "doesn't remember."

                                        A new emoji and the perfect opportunity to use it! It's my lucky day!

                                        • If I had the time I would organize all these threads and sort the comments to write a quasi-fiction book of everything that has been posted. It would be fascinating to get it all organized in one place, wouldn't it?

                                          It just occurred to me it will be interesting to see who the witnesses will be at the trial. I imagine RC's testimony will be quite explosive explaining her need to sleep outside her horse's stall with a loaded weapon for protection.
