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 know a number of couples where the husband has it bit on the side, where the wife knows and everyone is happy. He gets his rumpy pumpy with the younger model, the wife is left alone in the bedroom, lunches, and spends money. It is a win win.

    Now, this is not my idea of a relationship but it works for them. Why can't an older man/younger woman have a good relationship on their own terms ( and the same for older women/younger men for that matter) without it pissing off so many women?

    Why get so mean and hateful about it?
    That is the rub however, imagine your story where the wife gets kicked to the curb AND loses her money to spend

    I dont get angry over this stuff, but I am sensible enough to see it for what it is. He has nothing left to lose (in his mind) so why not live the rest out the way he wants to?

    Gluttony IMO and who cares if his kids suffer right?

    Yuck !

        New standards for equestrian sports in Austria A warm welcome to the GLOCK
        HORSE PERFORMANCE CENTER


        The GLOCK HORSE PERFORMANCE CENTER is one of Austria's most modern equestrian centres. For self-confessed horse fanatic Gaston Glock, the planning and building of this exceptional place is a dream come true. With the GHPC, Gaston Glock wanted to create a generous, high-class environment for the horses and riders that participate in national and international equestrian sports. The Center, located in the southernmost part of Austria, offers unique possibilities for events of this sort. In addition to luxurious boxes, two air-conditioned and heatable riding schools and a generously dimensioned indoor dressage rink, fans of equestrian sports will also find large outdoor rinks for dressage, show-jumping and tournaments that are a cut above the rest.

                Perhaps that does indeed happen....it is just not news. But how would you feel about that? Is it a money thing or the fact that the women are deemed "traded in/dumped" for a younger model. We put our horses out to pasture to live a happy life when they reach a certain age, why not our women?

                  Um they said at the end of the article they were sad that their lifes work was thrown away?

                  Their jobs replaced?

                  By their own father?

                  Are you from a place where they eat their young or something

                  If they had any relationship with him at all that's got to be heartbreaking that their father who wont be around forever obviously has decided to the spend his last years with a stranger rather than them...

                  I dont know the whole story but if this was the gyst of it then that is incredibly sad...

                      My husband and I are too busy to try and think about how to trade eachother in

                      WE have better things to do with our lives then worry about sexier younger people and trying to find out if they'd be interested in us over partners their own age.

                      I think people who ponder these type of things are bored, and should spend some time being useful to society...

                      Support a starving child or something to 'fullfill' yourself.

                      Burning your children and family for what little bit of sex drive you have left is selfish and stupid... And your funeral will have one VERY happy widow.

                      Just sayin.

                        Ladies, you KNOW I love you all like my luggage right? I'm am just trying to understand the hostility and mind set.

                        Someone said "we are all women"...well I do not buy this whole sisterhood thing. Woman are catty to each other. Todays best friend is tomorrow's worst enemy.

                        Someone said "I am mad at the man"....is that really true or ore you mad at the woman you label the "bimbo"?

                                Ah, so that explains your defense of Glock. Guess you old billy goats have to stick together, huh? Just curious - have you kicked your wife of many years to the curb in favor of a hot young thing?

                                  It bothers/angers me because it flies in the face of every attempt the various waves of feminism in this country have fought for equality.

                                  Prostitution is illegal, yet in essence this woman becomes a VERY EXPENSIVE prostitute, in marrying a man we all know she doesn't find sexually attractive. Whether he can perform or not, I'm sure there is nudity involved.

                                  If she were "just a friend" or it were hands-off, there wouldn't be a marriage.

                                  Many women have fought for many years to allow other women to care for themselves. If a beautiful model marries a rich man about her age, we can at least hope that there is love there and it's not just a business transaction. I suspect Mr. Glock knows exactly what he is doing and what she is doing, and so does the new wife. As long as that sort of thing is seen as acceptable, it affects the equality of women and how we are seen in the world.

                                  I don't think it's right, as I don't believe sex should be for sale - but I wouldn't outlaw it and force my opinions on others. It at least would not be so maddening if both genders were doing the same thing.
