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!

      My question was a serious one. I have never brought a pet with me internationally and remember reading about Debbie McDonald having her puppy with her at WEG, so I thought I'd ask. (I've only imported horses from Europe, not brought animals in the other direction.)

      Is there a lot of hoopla to go through to bring a dog with you, or do you just have to present a health certificate and head on your way?

        Congrats to Elisabeth and Fizzie!!! Have a grand time in Germany!!!

        Back when Tafts Corners was still rural, I went to watch a college acquaintance have a lesson with Madeleine, and I saw little Elisabeth with her pony Mrs. B. (I think that was her name; that little pony was quite a character and had the run of the old Imagica). The kid was talented then, but it took work to get where she is now. Bravo.

          England requires dogs to go through a 6-month quarantine period. I do not believe that other European countries quarantine dogs.

            I think this kind of help will do more to create a new level of dressage in this country than almost any one other single thing.
            Second that- the old guy is doing the right thing and hopefully beginning a good new practice and I hope he does wonders with your daughter- she sure looks very talented and the horse is a dream...all the best to both of you- and tell her-- KB's thighs are legendary....there is nothing that can withstand that power...LOL!

              no they don't - I used to vacation in Germany every summer for 3 months- when my kids were little- took my hunting and working dog along- in a kennel- needs health and rabies cert- but that's all...and we had the best times- in Germany..riding and hunting...

                Thanks! I knew about England's requirements, but didn't know about "the Continent".

                  Congratulations Liz, Liz's mom and Fizzie!!!

                  I'm glad that people like Liz and her mom post on internet and don't hide themselves behind the bb name. It's refreshing to meet real people with real success stories on BB.

                  I'm sure if Liz's mom posted something along the lines: my daughter cantered today for the first time - she wouldn't have experienced a nasty reply.

                  For the ones who are so jealous of Liz and her mom, they still have a long way to go to Olympics and I hope that Liz will still post on BB after she'll place at the top in the world competition. I'm enjoying watching the journey.

                    Congratulations and have a great time Liz! Please write something for the local GMO if you will! We would love to see some pictures and stories in The TIP!

                      Phooey on Altered Existence - what a rotten thing to say about a very nice horse and a lovely young rider who has worked her tail off to bring him up the levels.

                      I say big congrats to Liz and Fizzy! They are a super pair and they both deserve this opportunity. Best of luck to them!

                      And no, dogs coming from the U.S. (with proper health and vaccination records) don't have to go through quarantine to get into Germany. Holly Simensen of the Oldenburg Verband office in Florida frequently takes her dog(s) with her to Germany.

                        For anybody that cares to get the CORRECT information, it is here: http://www.aphis.usda.gov/vs/ncie/iregs/animals/uk.html ENGLAND http://www.aphis.usda.gov/vs/ncie/iregs/animals/ge.html GERMANY

                        Cats, Dogs, and Ferrets (non-commercial english-only) - March 2005 - Please Note: As a member of the European Community, the UK is adopting the PET PASSPORT (Veterinary Certificate application) system for importing cats, dogs and ferrets. The PET Scheme will be in effect only until the current documents have exhausted their validity dates. The Veterinary Certificate indicates which boxes apply to the UK and need to be completed. Also, note that the animals still need to be microchipped, vaccinated for rabies, titered, and monitored by the owner during the 6 months between the date of titer draw and date of rabies validity.

                          my very best wishes to you & your family on this new adventure. Keep your eyes wide open - there is soooo much to learn ! This could not have happened to a more earnest and hard working person !

                            Now how the hell did my name get dragged into this?
                            Careful, 2 faced one. You can play the outraged innocent as much as you like but many of us have read your tirades about this subject and others elsewhere.

                            These things can be checked, you know.

                              I'll be thinking about you and Fizzy tomorrow. Have a safe trip and enjoy every minute of it! See you in Vegas in April. Faye

                                Congratulations....how exciting for you and your family. Please, please update us along the way.

                                I read the article about this on www.dressagedaily.com

                                  Yeah Liz and Fizzy! We are all so excited for you! Especially since now we can brag that we are from Vermont, too.

                                  I'm sure we'll see you with Tuny this winter. You'll love working with her and Klaus.

                                  And AE, for your information, Liz is one of the very few young riders who talks to everyone and is friendly and helpful to "unknowns". When my daughter was inquiring about YR's, she was snubbed by most of the snobby YR's who talk only to their friends and their trainers. Liz has been extremely nice and open to her and talked and emailed and IM'd her when she had questions. THAT is also worth bragging about!

                                  And as a mom, I'd be ALL over the internet if Liz was MY kid!!!

                                          So what was the IP from the post on this thread? Because I can guarantee it didn't come from my computer or my keyboard. I will say one more time, that post was not mine, period.
