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!

  • Anyone know how to get tickets to the 2012 World Dressage Masters Palm Beach

    Just found out Totilas, Salinero and Ravel will be head to head. I would love to get tickets to this event but I honestly don't know where to find them!

    I clicked on the "purchase tickets" link and it doesn't look like tickets for the WDM are available yet.

          If you are able, I would suggest volunteering to scribe at the show. In general a good experience and also gets you in and able to watch when you are not working. (Of course, don't volunteer for that if you have no experience..it's not the kind of thing you can bs through)

            ooh, have been planning to visit my sister who lives in SoBe this winter and wanted to coordinate it around one of the big FL shows, how perfect! Will be keeping watch on this thread in hopes that I can afford to buy general admission tickets.

            does anyone know, are general admission tickets for the day or the weekend?

              Who would you suggest contacting about volunteering?

              I scribed at a lot of CDIs on the west coast but had the impression that there are lots of very experienced scribes in Wellington and not much need for new folks. I'd love to get more involved ... look forward to good advice!

                Hey, me too, and wondering the same thing! I've scribed at Devon and Gladstone on the east coast and then CDI's in CA. Found myself wanting to fly to FL to spectate or volunteer, or both!

                  My mom and I are thinking about going down for this as it would be a really nice break from the PNW winter I see tickets for something on the 29th but no other dates. Anyone know when tickets will go on sale?

                    How much do tickets to something like this generally cost?

                      Tickets last year were around $150 which included dinner. This year I hear they are expanding the general admission area, which means there will be 'normal' priced tickets...LOL.

                      I believe they will go on sale in the next couple of weeks. Be on the look out on Dressage News - Florida. The link will appear there, I'm sure! I can't WAIT!

                      Anyone know if Heather Blitz and Paragon might try for this one?

                        Horse and rider combinations have to be invited to compete at the Masters.

                        However, there is a CDI*** going on at the same time, which I am sure Heather will be competing in.

                          Well, hoping they have a more reasonably priced general admission area

                            I can suggest 2 ways

                            Contact show manager: Noreen O'Sullivan (I dont feel comfy posting her info,you can look it up easily)

                            or If you know one of the judges (or scribed for them before and they remember you) contact them . . they like sitting with people they have worked with before and can comfortably joke around with

                              Thanks ... I'll drop an email to a couple of judges who might either be judging or know who is (I couldn't find a list of the 2012 panel online).

                              I called Marie yesterday, but will also reach out to Noreen.

                              Again, thanks for the direction!

                                  Last year a limited number of general admission tickets were available at $80. and had to be purchased online and in advance through the polo club link previously listed.

                                    My advice ... call the polo club and leave a message regarding your interest in tickets. I suspect they're putting together a call list and if it's long enough, the tickets won't even make it to web sales.

                                    Good luck!

                                      does anyone know if the general admission tickets are for the day or if they are for the duration?

                                      Also does anyone know how these events are typically structured? Will all the big names perform on all 4 days? Calling the ticket office tomorrow!
