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!

  • If your horse had a theme song....

    ...what would it be?

    My DW and I were talking and she's always said that her TB's song is AC/DC - For those about to rock. She demands to have it played while tacking up before XC, lol.

    I got to thinking about it and I've not been able to come up with one for my OTTB, but when I watch her ride my new horse (17hh Hano), I hear, Blue Oyster Cult - Godzilla.

    I'm not sure about her Trak/TB yet, but I think Abba - Dancing queen, might be appropriate for him, lol.

    Along those same lines, how cool would it be if the 30 seconds before you entered the start box they played your "theme song"? Lol I know it would never happen, but if it did then everyone would hear what's going on in my head as I entered the box.

    My first horse was an ex-barrel racing QH mare with horn-like curved ears and a personality to match. At one show I came out of a particularly "expressive" dressage test and realized I had ridden the whole test with "Highway To Hell" stuck in my head.

    As for my current horse, I'm not sure about a theme but I swear she goes XC with "Flight of the Bumblebee" running through her tiny head.

      My TB's theme song would be "Basket Case" (by Green Day). Definitely. He's a good boy and I love him to pieces, but he can be quite neurotic.

        My TB was l7.1 hh, a dear boy, but his song was "Bad boy, bad boy,When they gonna come for you"

          Probably that song "Party Like a Rockstar" for Calypso.. He sure trys to act the part.

            A dressage judge told my then twelve year old daughter her horse's free walk was sexy. She thought that comment deserved an "Ew Yuk!" However, since then his theme song is "I'm bringing sexy back".

                Either Yothu Yindi's, "Lonely Tree" off the album Garma or the Crystal Method's "Purple Haze" off of Tweakend ("Listen all you mother f#$%ers!"). Dressage would be "Seven Deadly Sins" by Flogging Molly.

                Of course our overall eventing theme songs (both of us) are off of AC/DC's Powerage: "Rock n Roll Damnation" ("Take a chance while you still have a choice.") and "Down payment Blues" ("Living on a shoe string. I got my self a Caddilac but I can't afford the gasoline.")

                  I think you mean, Crystal Method - Name of the Game (LOVE that song and I'm a big fan of CM)

                  The DW just informed me that Vidar (her Trak/TB) is NOT Abba - Dancing queen, and was quite offended at what that implied about him

                  The OTTB has been narrowed down to (her) the Sopranos theme or (me) Rage Against the Machine - Renegades of funk, "No matter how hard you try, you can't stop us now"

                    The little/big horse who is affectionately known as "Monster" by his farrier and vet and all the interns and apprentices would be:

                    Bad To The Bone

                    I think the vets at the clinic get quite a kick out of watching each year's new crop of interns attempt to draw blood on Monster. He's so little and sweet looking until....

                        I've ridden some that would go well to "crazy bitch" and some that hummed "every rose has it's thorn" but right now I'm lucky enough to ride to the tunes of "I was made for loving you baby" by Kiss.

                          Ripple and Rebel Rebel

                          Felix, my DH horse's song is "Ripple" The grateful Dead. He sings it to him all...the...time... and it fits him, he's definitely a dead head LOL

                          Trevor... "Rebel Rebel" by David Bowie... pretty sure he knows he's a boy, but I bet he would cross dress if he could... his forelock and mane are ALWAYS a mess, and he does everything his own way on his own time. And it always pops into my head when I'm riding him

                          This was fun

                              Truckin, Grateful Dead song. I swear this horse went to Woodstock in an earlier life. He even has a hazy, peace sign on his forhead in place of a star.

                                The kid says his and Bo's theme music in the start box is "Rock Me like a Hurricane" by the Scorpions. Played at speaker shattering volume.

                                  As a newcomer to eventing (this will be my first year) I am comforted by the fact that singing AC/DC is normal. And I think they should play it on loudspeakers across the whole course!

                                    Well, Sassy's theme song is definatly "Livin la vida Loca".."Bitch is back" (Elton John) Also fits her pretty well, lol.

                                    Johnny's is "Johnny B. Goode"...In fact we named hin after that song because it fits him so well.

                                    Kc's is definatly "Just push play" by Aerosmith.

                                    Mystic's is somthing by Avril Lavigne..lol. I dont' know what song..But she's just like that..

                                        I'll play

                                        All I can think as we're going XC is RPM by Sugar Ray. It's on their first cd. If you ever saw my boy go XC you'd understand!
