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!

      • He can give criticism but not accept it himself....

        Nick Peronace Dressage "Gwynn Daniels it is 100% fair. How interesting that some people go on the defence and make it personal, and will actually use ego defense mechanism on behalf of another rider ( age,location, time,angle etc) .
        To become a better rider one has to learn to take criticism. To criticize but educate is NOT mean! To criticize and not show a difference WOULD BE. Criticism is baptism under fire."

          THE NERVE OF THIS MAN! This woman bred her horse and trainer her up the levels with the help of an *actual* GP rider/trainer. She has an excellent show record. I've seen her ride - looks like she should be charging at least $100/45 minutes for lessons on the "Peronance Scale". This guy is unbelievable......

            I wouldn't worry about it. He clearly has trouble with his vision.

            • This guy is eerily similar to EABuck, down to the attacks and blocks. They should team up.

              • Joanne, these were the two comments....first is mine, the second is Unfforgetable's.

                This rider has never claimed to be world-class...in fact, she freely admits that she's an AA who continually seeks to be educated. There is no shame in that. We should all seek to continually improve our positions.
                Hardly a chair seat. Are the heels raised? Yes. Is there a line from shoulders to hips to heels (even raised?) Yes. Also, consider the point in the horse's stride. In a chair seat, the entire leg is well in front of the seat...in this photo,the rider's heels have come up, but is NOT a chair seat.

                  • Also, what is this Devon Chevy's Cup thing? It looks like he bought a trophy online and took a picture of himself holding it in the Devon parking lot.

                    I'd like to announce the Buttonwillow Grand Prix World Championship award. Meet me behind the 7/11 at midnight. Bring cash.

                      I just had that very same experience/thought.

                      • The other comment that got deleted was mine, and I said, "This picture came from <link> and I doubt you have permission to use it." Now I can't see anything as far as comments go.

                        The Devon Chevy's Cup is basically an award that he sponsors to the highest scoring non-warmblood. So, yeah, he bought a cup.
                        It's a small world -- unless you gotta walk home.

                        • He sponsored a trophy for DAD for the highest placing PSG or higher non- warmblood, this was the first year it was awarded and was earned by Elly Schobel. I think the trophy is a way of trying to legitimize himself with a well recognized competition. He did it the only way he could, by buying it. It is interesting that he is sponsoring an award at a show which he has never participated in.

                              "I think you are a fake."

                                • I find it rather amusing that he feels the rest of the world should be able to accept criticism in order to learn, yet he cannot accept criticism. Fascinating how the minds of narcissists work.

                                      Very true - Nick Peronace never competed at this level at a recognized show. He has never competed at DAD. Never trained a horse that competed at DAD - and yet, has sponsored (PURCHASED) an award that he named after his own horse.

                                      And he claims OTHERS, who bred, raised, trained and rode their horses - and earned awards, bought their way?!?!?!

                                      Nick:

                                      • I can't believe his idiot is critiquing ANYONE. With the slap if his ass in the saddle on each stride, his legs swinging back and forth with his hands in his lap and this is coming from his "good" video. I just can't believe it. This is AB all over again!
