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!

  • How would you like to be that photographer. I mean Vavra, he's famous for those beautiful blended shots.

    This guy? "Oh yeah, that's so and so the photographer, he's the one that took the pictures of Stefan Peters with a giant chubby at WEG and then put it on the cover of all the magazines"

    • I wasn't going to post in this thread... BUT, I showed the picture in Pratical Horseman to some people and asked, "Do you notice something strange or funny in this picture? Is there anything that pokes out at you?" They couldn't figure it out, so I showed them. They didn't get it and said, "you are seeing what you want to see." What the heck? It's blatently obvious to me! And it's not exactly something I WANT to see in that context!

          • I just stopped in TSC, where I'm a regular so the staff knowsme by name. I picked up the Nov. PH and flipped to page 44, and yup, there it is! There I am standing in TSC looking at a woody. Odd. So I say,
            "Tom, look at this"....the manager started laughing so hard I thought he was going to choke. Thank goodness there was a lull in business at that moment because the entire staff came over and was howling over that picture.

            Poor, poor, Peters. But, hey, I'm thinking those people at TSC have no clue what dressage is...but they do now . So....he's giving the discipline some exposure. Ahem.

            ***Just had a conversation with dh and he reminded me of the JS Tropical Riders I had but I returned. They were a size too big, and when I sat down the zipper in the front buckled *EXACTLY* like this. I returned them for a pair that is more snug...something that women can get away with, while men can not.

            SO...I believe poor Peters is a victim of an actual wardrobe malfunction caused by loose fitting breeches.

              • Showed my DH the photo of the wardrobe malfunction, and he studied it and said "Now, what brand of britches are these that cause so much female attention? I must simply have a pair!"

                so it isn't just the nag mags getting in on the moolah - that britches company should have had the logo on his bumm-side for more exposure.

                  • You know, Uncle Fester has got me thinking. I don't think it was a conspiracy by the mags to embarrass Stiffen, er, um, I mean Steffen. I think it was a fiendish plot by the German Dressage Team to render him unable to ride. Those in the know realize he is the USET's secret weapon and he will soon lead the US to dressage glory. So they hatch a plot to slip a little long acting Viagra into his drink at every opportunity. He may tough it out for a couple of international competitions but eventually, the pain will become too much, that and the fear that it might "freeze that way" will cause him to retire...prematurely.

                    Those damn Germans.

                    • It took me 15 mins of frantically searching through 13 pages of this thread to actually find the link and photo that would "OPEN" on my computer and let me just say........WELL worth the time to search! Muy Impressivo, Mr. Peters

                      You guys are hilarious.....your comments totally made my day....

                      • Thank God it wasn't the cover of the Stallion issue...

                        If he ever gets tired of doing Dressage, he could come show in the Hunter Pleasure classes. The horse that wins should look the most pleasurable to ride, so he would definitely win.

                          I think Mr. St. iff Y might be the chosen one to initiate Side Saddle Dressage-for males!

                          Anyone think of asking RIDE for their recycled Oct. issues?

                          We should mill this thread for new Dressage bumpersticker ideas; Dressage: We Get it Up for a Score....anyone else?

                          • great thread!

                            found out about this thread on another forum and had to check it out.

                            i am not disappointed!

                            the only criticism i have, is that i have slc on "ignore" and this thread woulda been perfect for me if some of you hadn't quoted her!

                            sigh.

                              Actually I think it's the saddle too- those knee rolls are just muy bueno-in my eyes...I bet his saddle maker is getting a lot of calls as well- plus it must be mighty comfortable to allow Mr. Johnson to just live in his own huge world...LOL!

                                • I wish I found riding as exciting as Mr. Peter does. I woud definately find the motivation to ride more often. Perhaps I should try dressage, and give up jumping

                                    • Has anybody hears what HIS reaction to all of this was? I am sure he has seen and heard all the fuss. I wonder if he just thought it was funny or embarrassing???

                                      I definetely saw Mr Happy again in my USDF magazine. He defintely is making himself well known.

                                      I wonder how comfortable that is for a guy to ride with a HARD ON?
