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!

  • Devon Carriage Pleasure Drive Relocated

    My daughter just came in and told me she saw on Facebook that the pleasure drive tomorrow has been relocated to starting at the showgrounds and ending at the show grounds. My guess is St. David's churchgrounds are too wet for the trailers.

    Here's the text of the alert...

    <<Due to inclement conditions, management has decided to start the Pleasure Drive from the Dixon Oval at the Horse Show grounds. Class judging will commence at 11:30am in the Dixon Oval and the Final judging and awards will take place (as scheduled in the Dixon Oval) beginning at approximately 1:45pm.
    Sunday Schooling Update: Hunter/Jumper schooling will end at 11:15 am in the Dixon Oval and 12 noon in the Gold Ring.>>

        If it happened today, I wouldn't know. Today is my day "off." I hope not!

          I heard something on the live feed, and know they unhitched the horses for one vehicle during the pleasure (?) section a few minutes ago, but the live feed didn't have the camera oriented at it so not sure what happened.

            There definitely was but I'm still not sure what exactly happened. The announcer mentioned "vehicle damage" and that everyone was "more or less OK". It was a big yellow commercial vehicle & all we really saw was a pair of bays being led out.

            ETA: I definitely heard hooves hitting wood at one point while everyone was gasping.

              I was at the Dixon Oval from about 12:15 on til the end of the judging of the Championship. I didn't see or hear anyone talking about an accident. Later, as I was shopping at the country fair I heard two different people talking about a single horse (didn't hear if two wheeled or four) that fell out on the drive. But couldn't hear any details. I'm curious too.

                Frustratingly, the person behind the @USEFNetwork Twitter account does not know either. We're not making this up though!

                  Hearsay but someone who was there said the Waller's yellow coach jack-knifed and the coach split apart. Humans and horses are okay. The person I talked to isn't horsey so she didn't have a good concept of what started the problem in the first place. I am assuming a horse got out of control while hitched!?

                    There were actually 3 driving mishaps this year... One on the pleasure marathon, being the worsts one, the horse took a misstep, woman fell out and landed on her head... she is in critical condition, fractured skull, and brain bleeds. She has had surgery and is in a medically induced coma, they let her come out of it to check response, and they are optimistic. Horse nad carriage are fine.
                    The Wallers coach did jack knife, Rigth leaders line got caught under the Left leader, and the whip was unable to get everything sorted out. The coach did not flip, always a good thing, horses remained calm, no one was hurt, coach needs repair.
                    And a single pony flipped, no one was hurt, and the carriage was fine.

                      Thanks for the details.

                      Sounds like an ugly day on the Pleasure Marathon. Sometimes there is just nothing that could have changed things. Hope to hear the woman injured, has a good recovery.

                              Update this morning on her facebook page is that she is still in a coma and they are going to try remove the tube that drains fluid from the brain and the breathing tube to get her breathing on her own. Once they have her breathing on her own they will bring her out of the coma.

                              I really hope she recovers from this....very nice lady....and always has an exceptional presentation of her and her ponies/horses.

                              I don't know if she was wearing a helmet or not as I know she does show in the fancy hats. As do I...but things like this make me rethink wearing my hat ever again (my horse has been known to act stupid!).

                                  From her facebook page:

                                  **Tuesday AM - Cindy has taken the big step and is now in Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital. This is just the beginning of a very long road but I feel very confident that it will end in a wonderful place and Cindy will be returned to us completely healed and ready to drive her horses once again. They have a very intense program for individuals that have suffered massive brain injuries so she will be very busy ever day in her rehabilitation. I am not allowed to visit until after 4:00 PM on a daily basis. Bryn Mawr is considered on of the very best rehab centers in the country and for that I am grateful. I will try to keep everyone posted as to her daily progress. THANK YOU all again for you continued support and prayers........Gene**

                                  So glad to hear she's doing better. Really scary how one small bad moment can change a life so dramatically.
