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!

      Yea! What a great sticky idea, Erin!

      Here are the ROLEX items on my mind...

      1) Let's do the IMACOTH'r pin/stick/shirts... whatever again this year!

      Last year some of us had the IMACOTH'r (ill post a picture) tag pinned to our bodies, backpacks, hats. In fact, one interesting COTHr (who was it?!) had the tag attached to two giant curly antennae's coming out of her head! Hard to miss!

      2) LET's have a GET TOGETHER! There are so many people I want to meet and I never seem to be able to meet them! Can we have like an official "course walk" or "brunch" or something? Meet by the lake, or the scoreboard....

      3) Who's camping?! I'm gonna go down on Tuesday (I think) and hopefully get a tent site! Is this feasible? I heard a rumor that the campgrounds guy said if you aren't there on Monday, you won't get a primative site. SHould I panic?

                This is my first Rolex as well! I really, really hope we can get the t-shirts before we go. If not, I'm sure I can think of some way to proclaim myself as a COTHer. See y'all there. Oh, also, I vote for a meet up - an official one so we don't just say, "Yeah, everybody show up and we'll meet." Something with a definite time and place!

                  MrToad! See my first post. That picture is what a bunch of us printed out last year and pinned to our bodies to proclaim our COTHhood.

                  I laminated mine (probably still have it) and pinned it to my backpack. Like I said, someone else stuck it to two curly bounching antennae coming out of her head!

                  Just one solution.

                    I'm counting the days! I just hope my mare foals by then...she's 4 days over and not showing any signs of being imminent. As long as she drops this baby, my husband, several friends, my dog, and I will be there!

                    I finally set up a photo album...take a look!

                      I'm not camping this year but last year the campground wasn't as bad as it has been in years past -- no more dog agility trials at the same time. However, you should still get there on Tuesday if you can swing it. That will, hopefully, get you closer to the bathrooms if needed. I slept in my horse trailer last year (in the gooseneck portion of the dressing room) and stayed at a campsite slot with a couple of others (in tents) so the close proximity of the loo was really helpful. You don't have to be in primitive just because you have a tent (although the RV'ers will wish they had your pad). I ran an electric line to my trailer for the fridge & microwave. (Just because we went without the RV doesn't mean we can't have some luxuries.)

                      I also hope that there will be a COTH get-together.

                        Wow -- ya'll are lucky to be going this year! I sure wish I could! I went to it in 1997 and 1998 and it was absolutely amazing. Of course, at the time, I was 11 and 12 (respectively) and hadn't heard about David O'Connor yet so I didn't really know who I was getting my picture taken with and getting an autograph from. I just remember my friends telling me he was famous and an amazing rider. LOL.

                        But really, hope you all have fun and take lots of pictures. Maybe one day I'll get to go experience it again. It's what made me decide one day I would love to event, but there's no eventing barns in my area that give lessons, so I'll have to put my dreams on hold. Until then, I live to go watch the Poplar Place Spring Trials.

                              I would say probably 1 1/2 hours from Louisville to KHP.

                              I'll be there Friday and Saturday definatly and maybe on Sunday. But, I'll be in a meeting on Friday and am fence judging all day Saturday, so probably won't be able to meet anyone. But I will print out the sign and pin it on me somewhere just in case anyone wants to meet me (which I doubt, but just in case )

                                Regarding the KHP campgrounds: there are an "infinite" number of primitive sites (i.e., don't have electric) available. But only a "finite" number of sites with electric hookup.

                                  Xctrygirl - What time do you get into Louisville? I have to pick up my husband and daughter there (can't remember what time - early evening I think.) Guess I better find out!

                                  I get in on Tuesday because I work the first inspection on Wed.

                                      I'm not going there for any reason... but I'm planning to be at the KYHP all week camping! So I'm BET I'll be very free to run over to louisville and get you if you can't get a ride! 1 1/2 is not the end of the world.

                                      Of course, if I get that (damned) job offer in the next week or two, I might not be camping at all... I *might* be moving! We will see....

                                        I got a really wonderful pullover at Rolex last year and I'm not going this year so I went out to the site to see if they were selling any of the stuff online--and they aren't! What a missed opportunity! Bummer. I wonder if they'll consider it for the future. They could probably sell some of the shirts from their old events as well--if they have any left. They sell out SO quickly!

                                        I can only conclude that I'm paying off karma at a vastly accelerated rate.
