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!

      OH YOU GUYS !!!!!


      Hubby and I celebrate new year with horsey. I went for a ride wishing I will be there for another year.
      It is damn cold here and I feel frisky.

      Anyway, I had my greenbean canter for the first time, could feel his soooooo confortable canter. This is to fight the fact my cancer index is a bit up..My grand mother was baking bread when she had heart problems...I ride. Different times, different ways to fight !

      I hug you all for making me feel important to you !

      Bonne et heureuse année !

          Happy New Year

          I've got to chime in on this too - Happy New Year Leena! You are an inspiration. I'm so glad you are here, and look forward to wishing you a Happy 2010!!

          I still need to do my first under saddle canter on my green pony!! He is doing great walk/trot. We've even started doing some funny looking school figures. My serpentine was rater "Z" like.

          A happy post, thanks OP.

          Let's start a Leena fan club

            It is possible that Leena has no idea how big her fan club really is. I have told people who have never heard of COTH about Leena and they are fans, too. The list is HUGE

              I don't know what to say now...

              I renew all my rider licence for showing last week an even upgrade ! So I am sending my cancer a clear message here...That is going to be tough to knock me down !

              This is the way I always took this making clear plans and just focus to it, despite odds and doctors predictions. Despite what I am feeling too, physically speaking.

              What I have learned is: You don't control a horse, you just communicate with him. Breaking through all resistance of all kind has made me a real horse's energy sucker. I feel fortunate to live that opportunity to open my mind, loosen up my body and feel all this.

              I feel more than fortunate that I could speak, write on this board and get so much in return; you are fantastic ! This has been more positive that anyone could ever dream of.
              I am loosing my french here OMG !

              I read on Ultimate last year I guess about that woman rider who fought an ovarian cancer; unfortunately I don't recall her name but her story was so inspirationnal to me.

              Merci beaucoup de m'encourager et de me supporter autant ! (thanks very much to support me so much)

              Living forward !

                              I saw something on one of the news programs that people from Illinois, esp. the Chicago area say "Happy new years"(plural), where in other places they say "Happy new year"(singular). Interesting...

                              Have many happy rides for many years to come!

                                I agree with everyone above who has posted. Leena you are an inspiration.

                                Happy New Year!

                                  Ride On!!!!!
                                  Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

                                  Remember the horse does all the work, we just sit there and look pretty.

                                    You guys are something !!!

                                    I wish myself as many rides as possible believe me !

                                    On feb 26th, I'll be celebrating my second year of fight. I take this humbly since I don't have chemios since last june, so about 6 months now and no remission.

                                    God bless my horses for this because I am still alive and cancer activity is low so far. I am on hormonal therapy; now I handle a weight watcher game every day since you can just become a big balloon with this stuff. I just gained 10 pounds.

                                    Nobody can imagine how this "Happy New year" means to me. I hug you all to support me in this battle !

                                    I love you all !
