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!

                  Yes - the Kathrin shown in the photos with Gal, etc., on the Eurodressage site, is Gaston's new wife. He is 82, she is 31. It will be interesting to see what happens in the lawsuit. It is always fun to see the very wealthy get interested in dressage, but it sure sounds like he has shafted his wife and kids big time. I hope they win their lawsuit.

                    How sad is that! That woman was a nurse and now the director of Glock?!

                    How sad for his family...

                      She is director of Glock Horse Performance Center, not the firearms company. Looks like she and Glock met in Oct 2008. Not sure how long Glock has been "in horses", or if his new wife had involvement with horses beforehand, but there was a reference somewhere that he had purchased a Dutch stallion for his in-house rider back in 2010.

                      Mr. DY (who regularly shoots at our local Glock matches) had this comment - "Oh, great. I guess the price of Glocks will go through the roof now that he is spending so much money on HORSES!"

                          This distain by american woman when an older wealthy man "trades in"/dumps his wife for a younger model is somewhat odd. In many instances, one does not know the back story of a marriage that breaks down. It always becomes an issue when the wealthy man marries a younger woman. Often these women are looked at as gold diggers, bimbos, etc. Often you will find that the younger model is often quite educated. I know some very wealthy women who have their toy boys.

                          Regarding the first wife's claim to part of the company, well I think if she was part of the process of growth then she is deserving of some of the profits.

                          This sort of thing is not such a problem outside of the "English" countries but is obviously a problem with American women in particular.

                            You know why it's an issue? Because, we're all women and we were once young...and we know that we were never attracted crusty, old men with saggy bodies (or fat ones). And if you look at the women that marry those older men (typically) you have your answer.

                            We're not angry, except at the man. We all know that men are fools, but when they're that age, they should know better than to only think with their little head.

                            Yes, he might have had issues with his wife and her with him, but it's the fact that they go for young bimbo type women. That fact alone lets all of us know exactly what the man was looking for and what the young woman was looking for...and it is NOT love.

                              You are right, we don’t know the back story. But the only excuse I can see for his behavior is if his wife and kids tried to pull the plug or commit him while he was in the hospital.

                              Otherwise, there is no defense for this old goat kicking his wife of 49 years to the curb so he can pussyfoot around with a hot young thing 51 years his junior. And yeah, "gold digger" is exactly what comes to mind.

                                Yes but Velvet not all of the younger ones are bimbos. I think there is this perception that it is always the Hugh Heffner/blonde dumb bimbo thing.

                                Do you think that if he was to divorce his wife he should be looking for someone closer his age? Would this make some woman less angry. I just do not get the anger and distain. Men and woman are cut from different cloth. Perhaps as women age they are looking for something different in a companion then a man is.
                                You might be surprised to know that many wealthy women either in their own right or through divorce settlements often hook up with younger models. There seems to be less issue with that from the female camp.

                                  Why SHOULD there be a defence and why does gold digger immediately come to mind? The dynamics of relationships change as we get older. Perhaps both are actually happy with the arrangement?! Why does that rub up many women?

                                    I guess what I am asking is why women get so angry about this type of thing when it doesn't directly impact them? 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?
