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!

                  wow amazing horses! i love trakehner and would have loved to buy one here instead of my half arabian/half saddlebred. but all the horses down here even if they have just a littel talent for dressage or look like warmblood are very expensive! i bought my donnerhall mare in germany for 2000 euros. couldn't find anything comperable here for 3000 dollar :-(
                  still hoping my small boy will grow soon :-)

                          Where in winter Garden? i might know the place
                          I have been in orlando since 2008 so I looked around at pretty much all the barns in the area
                          I know, prices for boarding are higher than I thought they were, that's why I did not bring my mare with me.
                          how many horses did you bring?
                          if you're looking for some pointers for boarding place, let me know, i'll be glad to point you to nice places.
                          I have friends in Kissimmee where I ride, and some in Clermont.
                          I dont have a place fix where I take lessons right now.

                          by the way, 2000 Euro for a horse is not bad at all especially in europe ( im from France so I know )
                          out here they are a lot of people giving away horses, but most of them are green, or not much training

                            Welcome to Central Florida. The show this weekend will have ride times posted on www.orlandodressage.com; I'm waiting for mine..... The official location is Clarcona Horsemans Park; it is not too far from you.
                            I board at a farm in Apopka, WindSong Farm; my trainer who is here for the winter spends her "warm weather time" there. Several years ago she spent time in Germany training w/ Hubertus Schmidt.
                            We would love to have you join Central Fla Dressage; they also have a website www.centralfloridadressage.com; our annual banquet is at the end of next month; it would be a good time to meet a bunch of people. PM me for more on this...
                            Also, to show at the recognized shows, you need to register your horse and you with both USDF and USEF. There are also a decent number of schooling shows in the area where all that is not required.
                            We don't get less brave; we get a bigger sense of self-preservation........

                              hi,
                              i sold my donnerhall mare in germany. i didn't want to put her through the stress of quarantine and 20.000 dollar for the transport and everything was as well a reason.
                              the gelding i bought now was almost green, that was o.k. with me, but he is so small... feels like pony riding :-(
                              you are right boarding in europe is not only more professional but very much cheaper than over here. so you didn't buy a new horse? are you prepairing to go back to france?
                              i boarded in sunny brook farm. may we could meet and talk or have a cup of coffe. i am still a little bit lonely and missing all my friends in germany. we have a noung lady taking lessons in the stable, she is from france as well :-)

                                thanks for the invitation! you are right, a banquet may be a good thing to get to know some people.
                                things here are different and i am still trying to figure out how everytings works. as my gelding is just for a few weeks under saddle right now a schooling show would be great just to get him used to shows. thanks for that information.
                                maybe you would like to let me know when your starting time is, so i can come over when you are riding.

                                  thanks for the compliment on the horses! I think you will find everything horse-related is much more expensive here. I have a German friend who always says "you could get a mare like that for X" - forgetting that it is X plus about $14k to import one. It is hard for her to shift to the reality here. We are on foal watch now and may have a new baby before the weekend is over. You are more than welcome to visit - either send me a message on our facebook page or my phone number is on our website. We are not that far from Winter Garden if you take the toll road.
