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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

  • One Stop Equine Shop at Kentucky hasn’t sent purchase.

    Soooo, while at Kentucky I found a shop in the tent row outside of the Indoor Arena of shops that had the fleece lined Shire muzzles for 10 percent off. They didn’t have enough muzzles in the sizes that I needed in stock so they offered free shipping. Purchased happily. Now no muzzles have arrived...
    I contacted them - the phone number is not a human... no one answers... I left a message, got cut off, called back, left another message and sent an email.
    The shop is One Stop Equine.
    I need the muzzles and it’s irritating! I could have ordered them and had them easily last week from another company. I think my credit card company will credit me if need be. They don’t have good reviews online. I have never had problems with a vendor at Kentucky. If this isn’t resolved I will contact Kentucky as well so they can be aware of the company.
    From the message on the phone recording they are on Amazon and EBay so be wary!

    Yes, this company is problematic to say the least. They are in WI. You can file a complaint with your CC company to recoup your $$. I think they closed and are selling off stock on Ebay, etc.

      Is this the same company? Says they are in Illinois. I've never used them for online purchases (though I do buy lots of horse stuff on Amazon, so it is possible I have and don't know it).

        Yes, same company.

        I did the online chat on the website just now
        and they couldn’t help since it was a show order...
        They did apologize and took my email address which is the first positive thing!

          Well I hope you get your muzzles. Nothing worse than not getting something you paid for. Maybe you can get something free out of it too, for the long wait and frustration you've had!

            I've gotten several things from them off Ebay and they always shipped promptly.

              That’s great! Fingers crossed. No replies today after the apology.


              • #8
                Do they have a facebook page?


                • #9
                  Yes they do! That might be another way to contact them kcrubin .

                    They also sell through Amazon. Maybe another way to get to them...

                      I purchased a show coat through them a year or two ago and they were slooooooooowwww with the processing and delivery. I want to say it was almost 2 months between purchase and receipt. I also kept trying to call and email for an update and got frustrated by the automated phone system with no option to talk to a real person.
                      I have Higher Standards... do you?

                        They don't seem anxious to make it easy to contact them, I would just dispute the charge with your credit card company and order elsewhere. Is it worth 10% to make you jump through hoops? Not to me it isn't.


                        • #13
                          Just cancel the order and dispute with your card.

                            I purchased a saddle from them on Amazon but the invoice was from .. so maybe that's their parent company and you could contact them?


                            • Original Poster

                              The Facebook post got me the same reply and a promise that a team member would be in touch. I agree with you all and tomorrow I will talk to my cc company and cancel the order.

                                I have ordered a few items on a couple of different occasions recently from them on eBay. The first time I sent a message as I had not received a notification on shipment. Message back claimed 4-5 business processing days from order day on the shipment as claimed in the description but yet still had delays beyond the given time frame. I never saw the processing time that I remembered, went back and looked again, still didn't see it. Whatever.
                                Items ordered were received and in good shape. If I needed an item "right meow", wouldn't order through them. Looking for a fair price and don't care when it gets here, yes, I would order again. (Through eBay or Amazon)

                                Hopefully, your order was not lost due to it been taken as a vendor at a trade show rather than through Amazon or

                                  The muzzles arrived today. I think the order was forgotten because they came quickly after I finally got a human

                                  well, after all that they sent the wrong size. Back to trying to get a response. Turing it over to the credit card company and buying them elsewhere.
