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!

    What did you think of the eventer on the new show of Mom and Das on Bravo? I liked it and feel bad for the girl who may have to sell her horse because her parents decided to get divorced.

It was so awful the girl found out somone wanted to buy it and was hysterical (for real not in the show...like while they were filming) and she just wanted to spend some time ALONE with her horse so she turned off the little microphone on the thing they put on her and they got pissed at her and said "amercica wants drama they don't want to see some happy kid with her horse. Anyway.....we have all been dying to know when it came out...... I can't believe I missed it!!...damn.

        It is repeating again today at 11 AM and tonight at 5 PM. Also, on Friday at 5:30 AM and 7 PM. There are a lot more repeats (it's going on all weekend too) but I don't think the board wants all of them. (These are all eastern standard time as well.)

          I have ridden with that girl's trainer, Nancy Cole. She's awesome. I also know the 2 girls, Karli and Karoline. I didn't know anything about it, so you can imagine my surprise when I saw some people I knew on Bravo!

          I did read on the Ethel Walker results that there was another girl from their barn that was riding Disco A Go Go at their combined test a few weeks ago. I know that girl was horseless......maybe she ends up with Disco?

          Oh yea.....and all those XC fences they showed, I've jumped them! So has AppJumpr08.....she was with Nancy for a summer.

            Oh wow Erica I didn't know you knew the girls! I thought of you and Joe during the shoe and feel so bad for the girl. Why are her stupid parents getting divorced

            Erica ...good luck at your show this weekend...kick butt


            • #7
              I can't believe that they made it on air!!! *note to self to watch..* I was at the barn the night the producers came to meet Karli and Karoline...
              Erica - who was riding Disco at the CT? Someone from Nancy's? If I had won the lottery, that horse would've been mine in a heartbeat!!

                Jess- Courteny Brines. Didn't she used to own Which One's That? Who now belongs to a girl named Rebecca Gray and was ridden 2 yrs ago by Erika Smith. Courteny had to sell Which One's That when she went to college. Maybe she convinced her parents to buy her Disco? I have to do some more research...

                Disco is a super nice horse though.

                Jess-where are you now?

                  So she does actually lose the horse?

                  I don't think I want to watch if she does...


                  • #10

                    Yup Courtney had Which Ones That...I would think maybe she was just riding Disco at the CT to advertise, as she's pretty tall and he's not the biggest boy in the world...but I could be wrong! I'll see Nancy next week, so I'll ask.
                    I'm still ad Ken and Suzanne's...moving to my place by july 1st

                    BigRuss...you are at Nancy's? Or Bruce's? Have I met you? Can be such a small world...

                    It's really funny how people change their personalities for the camera......

                          That's really depressing. I'm wondering, though, how hard did she really try to keep her horse? It seems to me that there could have been several alternatives to selling, but I don't really know the situation. I guess I'll see as the show progresses.

                            The girl is cute... mother says anything is fair game as finances are tight because of the divorce. It'll be interesting to see if horse is sold. They showed him stopping at a couple of fences, he looked dirty to me. Trainer made an interesting comment on the preview of the next show. She says, "it's not the end of the world, for me... but for her it sucks". Hello, it's not about you woman, it's about the girl! Get a clue. Mom was kind of wierd acting as were most of the others on the show. Isn't that the point?

                              I just read the blurb they wrote about them -- I can't believe the mom took out a second morgage to buy a horse!!! That's serious!

                              This is going to sound harsh and I don't mean it to be, but the girl says selling the horse will mean the end of her Olympic dreams. Does she have the potential, drive, etc. to go or is it just a dream like most riders have? (ie, I still dream of going but know it isn't going to happen: don't have the finances, guts, etc.) Remember, this isn't meant to put her down or anything, I'm just curious since I didn't see the show or anything.

                                I was kind of shocked they showed such a normal looking horse family. I mean, maybe I'm just desentized to horse show moms, but maybe they could have picked someone a little crazier? They seem like alright teenagers, with cool horses! I was surprised... I mean, the horse show world has a lot to offer, and they pick fairly reasonable people What are the odds of that? I don't think 40k is outrageous to spend on a nice eventer either. Why couldn't they show the hunters spending ginormous amounts and such? hmmm.... must see next week's episode

                                  if they really wanted drama, they should have gone to the pony hunters. i'm actually surprised they are filming an eventer. in my opinion, eventers tend to be the most 'normal'. then again, it depends on your definition of normal... lol.

                                  i didnt get to see the show but will defintely be waiting for re-runs. i wanna what all the fuss is about.

                                    Loosetranslation and Candle -- Haha! That would have been funny! Especially if they got some family that bought one of the $300K ponies! They could show the kid flying to Florida for shows, etc. Eventers are pretty much the normal ones! (IMHO!)

                                      what's up with the girls goal being "to compete in the 1* event at Canterbury?" what 1* at Canterbury?

                                        I was wondering the same thing about Canterbury...also didn't it sound like when the Mom was leaving to go to work, the one sister wanted to know if they were "on the clock." Do you think that they actually get paid by their Mom to watch their brothers while she goes to work to bust her butt to pay for their riding and horses!!! I sure hope not!
