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!

    • Thanks for the facebook read Equibrit. Oh my.

      A pillar of the community?

      Has anyone taken screen shots of this man's claims about the "book" that he claimed Xenophen Press was going to publish, the article in DT, the false claim about the Dutch farm considering him as a trainer and the address that he claims is his own but is not?

      If not , please do. I don't know how.

      • I'm glad they opened this thread too! I need the entertainment. I visited his Facebook page the other day, but am unable to find more than a handful of pics of him riding and no videos. I think he would better be able to defend and promote himself professionally if he would just post a current video of himself riding...

        Heck, i videos on my Facebook that are less than flattering but they are on my PERSONAL AND PRIVATE page and are there for sentimental value.

        Even when asked nicely he has not been interested in sharing anything that would be helpful or current.

            That's gonna leave a mark.

            • I am so glad this was re-opened too! How I missed it the first time around is beyond me, but I just have to say, Mr. Peronace and kellydressage have given me a most entertaining day at work. I think the video should be sent in to Tosh.0 and then he could get a Web Redemption

                Poor Nick. Literally a pillar. I wonder how he types.

                  • Well, I'd defend anyone. I'm inactive, but I can take 12 hours of courses on line in a day or two and reactivate my bar card. Is this the same thread someone sent me or is it a new one? I missed posting before the lock because I don't read the dressage forum much. But one of my horses had a paternal grandsire and a maternal great grandsire who "dressaged" a bit. How to link old videos of Samber and Inschallah? (And I think Hat Trick's sire Impressionist did some dressage too?)

                    Truth is a defense. Posting what is public record on the web and calling or emailing people to determine if the info is true is not defamation. It's good investigation.

                    And "servered" sounds like some kind of aggravated assault. Service is not usually allowed by mail, btw. Maybe "severd-ing" is??????????? And I want to thank the poster who screenshot the video of the appy.

                    ETA: This is the first time I've been "in" after the lock. And I agree, the appy needs someone to represent him. Maybe the ASPCA?

                    • 1. OMG, this thread is AMAZING.

                        The book and article claims are on his actual website, under the press release section

                        http://www.padressagetrainer.com/press-release.php

                        i believe the dutch training opportunity was found on his Facebook page

                        • It's too bad that the "Master" doesn't feel the need to address his claims (which have proven to be false) and provide an explanation.

                          Being (literally ) a pillar of the community and all, one would expect him to..

                          Comment


                          • I have absolutely nothing to add except...

                            This is spec-tacular!
                            Rest your pride, Michael. Rest your pride and maybe we can all evolve.

                              Claim that his "publisher" and Dressage Today approached him to be an author.

                              "I deeply respect Devon for thinking outside the box, and it seemed that everywhere we went on the grounds, in every barn and every ring, people knew who I was and congratulated me. I was approached by my publisher that day, and Dressage Today. 2014 will see me as an author for "non warmblood dressage"!!"

                              And the claim that he turned down a trainer position with Van Olst.

                              "I suppose it is safe to say this now because I'm not going to follow through with it. The Van Olst Breeders in Holland ( Ferro, Negro, Netto) were considering me for a trainer position. They really loved the pictures of Chevy, and also how light I ride. They saw a few video clips and wanted me to try out in person. I can not move my family to another country, and I guess I just wanted to see if I could make it? But either way, Im here to stay folks lol!!"

                              And his website with claims that Xenophon Press is publishing a book. Along with the address of a barn that has no affiliation with him.

                              "10-12-13, Dressage book about "Training The Non-Warmblood" to be released by major publisher Xenophon Press sometime in 2014!!!!!"

                                      well to split hairs he did not say he was offered the job, did he?
                                      " considering" is not the same as "offered" and might just be a polite way of declining.

                                      So it would be more interesting if they have never heard of him or 'considered' him for any job.
