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'm impressed. That's a pretty radical decision. So the beastie gets a year. I might guess if all is still 'in the crapper' after a year, ToTo would get retired to strictly stud services.

        In hindsight, it's pretty obvious. Big S should-a had a rider in mind/lined up before hand. Just selling off the ride to a willing bidder twas NOT the sharpest plan.... Sure, anybody with a big enough check book can just hop on up that pony and go collect 80% like apples in an orchard! Seems pretty silly now.

          I believe other riders (such as Isabell Werth) were approached and they wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole. Gal left some pretty big shoes to fill.

            I don't doubt that. But I still think that S won't make this kind of mistake again. I think there's definitely a lesson to be learned about what a huge risk it is, even if you can afford the horse.

            I don't know how much spare $ S has lying around, but it may have been wiser to HIRE a rider instead of looking for someone to buy into the investment. I think that was the part of the scheme that was most prone to going awry.

                In hindsight Totilas should have been left in training with Gal. Sjef is a step down imo.

                    Makes the price of foals more $$, but they already collected him A LOT this last year.

                    And possibley SJ can be a real fall guy for the next happenings as well.

                          The saddest part IMO is that we never got to see Totilas at his full potential in competition with the likes of Uthopia, Valegro, etc. THAT would have been a contest I think! Then again, with both of those horses still unsold, one never knows what meet-ups could occur in 2013....

                            I'm pretty sure if he'd been asked if he wanted to continue to ride/train him the answer would have been yes... Too bad, isn't it? And from someone who seems far more interested in business than trying to win medals.

                              Who do you think was Gal's trainer ?
                              One would think they will be wringing out all the semen to freeze over the winter, so that he won't need to do live cover/fresh.

                                    I would imagine Paul and co-owners have made quite a bit of $$$ from all the breedings thus far. Some stallions have a tough time focusing on their job when they are also breeding but you don't find that out until you ask them to do both. That being said, I wish that young man all the success in the world with that horse. I am not enamored of his trainer choice but Edward was trained by Anky so perhaps this is the right way to go to ensure success. Mattias has to learn how to adjust his way of riding to Totilas. That can take quite a bit of time. Mattias is only 26, a bit limited in experience due to his age. With this horse there is a huge learning curve. Perhaps limited breeding next year will keep the money rolling for the stud fees yet help Totilas focus more on his job. A bit of trial and error I would think. I would have loved to have seen Totilas in London, but I think Rio is more on their horizon. The best of luck...time will tell the story....
