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!

    Canadian born best USDF amateur rider

    24 year old Canadian born Krystalann Shingler has earned the title of 2007 United States Dressage Federation (USDF) Year-End Adult Amateur Fourth Level Champion. Shingler attended the Adequan/USDF Annual Convention in Orlando, Florida to be presented with her commemorative plaque and gift certificates in honor of her win. Shingler competed her own horse, Tividor, to achieve a median score of 67.978 percent, the highest in the United States for the division.Tividor is a 17.2 hand, 8-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding (Obelisk x Faldo). Shingler and Tividor have been working together for three years. Tividor was imported to the United States as a 3-year-old by Shingler’s trainer, Canadian Shannon Dueck. Dueck is a veteran international competitor, having shown many esteemed competitions including the World Equestrian Games, World Cup Finals, and the Open European Dressage Championships. Additionally, Dueck won an Individual Silver Medal at the 1999 Pan American Games. Dueck runs a dressage training facility in Loxahatchee, Florida. “I am so grateful to Shannon for pairing me with Tividor and training us both,” said Shingler.

    A native of Toronto Canada, Shingler now resides in Wellington, Florida, utilizing her dual citizenship. She was also very successful as a young rider and competed in the North American Young Rider Championships for Canada’s Ontario team.

                  And what, pray, is "my kind of patriotism" ?
                  And why do you claim to be an expert on it?
                  It's nothing to do with patriotism, it's just irritating to read this little man's repetitive cheap shots at anything American.

                    Theo just likes to stir the pot let's face it. I have to admit that he is the only patriotic dutchman I know. The USA stinks, atleast that is the impression I get from all of this post and all his previous posts. I am amazed what he does on a American bb to be honest. I am sure there must be an anti USA bb somewhere where he would feel totally at home.I understand where Equibrit comes from it would piss me off aswell. I am happy to say that not all dutch people are Sh%# stirrers just a very small percentage of them and they live in Holland .Thankfully
                    Every time you ride, your are either teaching or un-teaching your horse.

                      Not that it has anything to do with Dressage but isn't Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum (I am sure I spelled that wrong, sorry) from California? She rides for Germany.

                      Who cares if the girl was born in Canada. There are several who have ridden on the U.S. Dressage team who were born in other countries and claim U.S. citizenship.

                          Just look where he/she is from. That should answer your questions.

                          As a German i know where your kind of patriotisme can lead to.
                          Hmmm. I wonder where your Germany would be now if not for the U.S.

                            Seriously guys, who cares if a Canadian is the best USDF rider. If she had the best ride then .....Go Canada!

                            I am guessing it is not the message Equibrit takes exception to but perhaps the messenger. Theo likes to take jabs at the U.S. and see who rises to the bait. Lets try not to sink to his level with North vs South or U.S. vs. Germany.

                              How exactly would this German be privy to how patriotic I feel and why I should be patriotic about America? Theo would have been more accurate if he had said that she is a dual citizen of both the USA and Canada - but that wouldn't allow him to make the dig!

                                Dutchmike,

                                I know you like to use words like sh*t, f*ck etc... at least hundred times a day, like you do on the Catchride BB.

                                And all women of the world must really love it to read how you think and post about them on other BB's.

                                    Other bb's?. You seem to know more then I do.They can know what I think about them here. I get on really well with most women and that is as simpel as that. BTW did you not put my on your ignore list as you stated in an earlier post?. I still don't understand what your purpose is on this bb except slagging down the US and being controversial. Sometimes I cannot help but wonder if you support dressage or if you want to destroy it somehow. Not that I care either way. Now if you want a rude fight then atleast use the same name on CR instead of hiding behind all these little aliases and we can continue there. On this bb I will keep it civilised

                                    Btw THEO you really are anti american aren't you I just looked you up at bokt.nl and you really are charming about the US riders.

                                    Equibrit,
                                    Theo is as cheap as you can get. Gutter level cheap. It is part of his charm
