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!

  • Steffen Peters clinic UPDATED w/SCHEDULE AND DIRECTIONS

    Y'know I've seen it spelled Steffan and Steffen, but we all know who I mean

    Well, he's coming to NC--Wilson, NC to be exact (about 45 min from Raleigh) November 17/18.

    Riding slots are full, but auditors are welcome $30/d. The facility is beautiful with a nice viewing area, you should be able to see/hear well as an auditor.

    See the NCDCTA BB website or PM me if you want more details...

    See my last post...

        Steffen Peters clinic

        It is only worth $ to audit if you get top riders. If I have to watch another clinic with Steffen teaching people how to post, I will scream..... When he teaches top rides like Lilo Fore or Hilda G, it is worth $100 or more. Is there a list of riders and their levels? I looked on the ncdcta web site and could not find any list of riders and, or levels of riders.

          levels of riders

          *I don't have the full list yet. I am not the official organizer of the clinic.*

          However, I am a rider--I have a solid 4th level horse, I'm a solid 3rd level rider. There will be another of the same level. One horse is showing PSG (a lovely local stallion). One has a young horse (4 yo) that is in the HOY standings at training level and is a PHENOMENAL mover. And one is a local trainer with several upper level (FEI level) horses, but I'm not sure which one she is bringing. That's all I can remember from those CCd on the email off the top of my head.

          It should be mostly mid and upper level riders, and the one young horse.

            Clinic

            Thank you for letting us know the level of riders. It is too bad you don't have any GP horses. When I have watched other Steffen clinic's the best rides are the FEI! He can really bring out the brilliance of a great passage! It is always great to have top riders like Steffen teach. Hope you have him back every year.

              We let people come watch him teach for free...I don't believe in auditor's paying to watch clinics, but that's just me...

                Good for you Gucci Girl- that you can afford it- no need to slam another organization that needs the money to pay for the clinic...it's not that someone is getting rich here and buying a Porsche on your auditting $$- jeez!!!

                I think watching the level pony described is most helpful to most amateurs- because reality is- that's where they will want to be..if they have a great schoolmaster- they are there- but can certainly improve- if they have a regular horse- that's where they would want to be- so in my thinking- shelling out $ 30 is not too much to hear someone explain well, and show exercises and make suggestions for specific riding problems. It would be helpful to publish a rider list with their accomplishments on the website so auditors can know what to expect- I think that's only fair...but frankly- seeing Steffen work out that stuff in the middle levels- which sadly often will take you down to 1st level- because someone was cheating - is the real meat of a good clinic- and I would certainly take advantage of that....

                sadly I can't because I am stuck in SoCal- and Steffen is close by...

                  Thank you, Sabine! Well said.

                  We had an excellent trainer clinic at our barn when I lived in PA and one of the rides people ran to see was him ride the PONY that took advantage of her child rider. THAT was a lesson.

                  Similarly, I can say that I learned a ton about basic training when Scott Hassler came to our barn and taught 4 and 5 year olds to do basic lower level work. Most of the weekend was first-second level and below, but it was highly educational in terms of the approach to training a horse's mind for the future.

                  We had Steffen at our barn before and I got alot out of ALL of the rides. Watching a trainer with horses at any level is educational. I think it's worth $30 if you can watch a quality BNT train 8 horses in a row. Maybe they'll feed you lunch, too!

                  PS. Sometimes the auditing fees go to the local GMO who organize, and that can be helpful.

                    Fabulous rider - but he teaches Lilo and Hilda? I'd think it would be the other way around.

                      So what?????????????? That's your perogative...doesn't mean everyone else has to do the same.

                      Why do people take the time to type useless information on threads, I don't get it. I recently had a thread up on another board about a horse that I had advertised (PAID to advertise) on that particular board. Some "poster" decided it was her/his duty to share their opinion about the ad ( I don't know this person from Adam's housecat) and went off on a tagent about it, to make themselves feel important????.....I thought WTF??? Why is this ANY of your business. I had the entire thread deleted and will never pay good money to advertise on that site again.

                      Just because YOU would do it YOUR way, doesn't mean anyone else is obligated to do the same thing. MOST organizations charge an auditing fee. I am from NC and 30.00 is NOT out of line.

                      If you don't like the fee, it's simple....don't go to the clinic. If you don't charge an auditing fee, that's your business.

                                I think it's good policy to charge for auditing. That way you are more apt to get some people who are actually interested and fewer people just dropping by, coming and going, to schmooze and yak. You still get those but not so many.

                                When our local group puts on BNT clinics, the auditors' fees are needed to help pay for the clinician's fees and expenses.

                                  I agree totally with charging to audit. I have learnt a great deal "from the ground" and a good clinic will also include those who audit. Also I firmly believe that it DOES help to off set the rising costs in holding clinics. So often I read/hear that so and so would love to clinic with someone but cannot afford to...well this is where the audit fee comes in. The next clinic that you want to go to may very well depend on getting "bums on seats" in order to make it financially possible for you to ride.
                                  Help the industry, your fellow rider, and hopefully they will do the same for you.
