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!

  • New Jockey Club Incentive Program

    This was posted on Off Course, and I thought Hunting Creek would have cross posted by now, but I can't wait any longer!

    The Jockely Club announced today they are sponsoring an incentive program for Thoroughbreds in disciplines outside of racing. see www.tjctip.com

    I emailed an Area V board member to please get the word out to our area events. Hope everyone will pass along the information in their areas

        FINALLY! The Jockey Club has admitted that TBs are not just race horses. If this pilot program is successful and continued, it could make a HUGE difference.

        The program is open to ALL JC registered TBs, not just OTTBs.

          What about TBs that were never registered or raced? I have one that was bred for racing but the Dam's owner didn't pay his stud fee and the filly became the property of the farm. I bet there are quite a few TB owners like myself that would love to be included.

            good question.. but how would you prove it's a TB then? I think they'd have to draw the line at horses registered with the association...

              Great news!

              This is really great news. And for those of you that are eventers, Vixen Hill Thoroughbreds is sponsoring a year end Thoroughbred award for USEA Area II starting this year.

                Excellent - thank you to The Jockey Club!
                For a number of years the Canadian Thoroughbred Horse Society (Ontario Division) has recognized TBs in other disciplines, and has been very generous in giving out coolers/cash awards etc.

                There are a number of TBs out there who are not JC registered, but who are 'proveable' as TBs (ie DNA on file) - I would hope that they could be included in this as well.

                  Bravo. There was an organization called TASHA (Thoroughbred show horse association) for a lot of years, but it died with the advent of the warmblood, sadly,
                  even when they included half thoroughbreds.

                  People always say their horse is half (name brand Warmblood), but never say their horse is half TB...My Irish boy is actually 3/4 TB, so he should be called my TB cross, not Irish boy.

                  To my mind, the closer a horse is to a gorgeous TB, the better.

                    This is great! It's interesting that there are a few options to prove a horse is a TB too - one is papers, but you can also go by a Tattoo/pedigree look-up.

                      I liked that too, van -- I don't have papers for mine, but I can photograph his tattoo. I'm so excited -- I've only had him four weeks but I've fallen hook line and sinker into mad OTTB love, LOL!

                      And thanks for the heads up, eventer55, we are Area II eventers so it's fun to see that stuff out there!

                          I'm excited about this! I love my TB's and I breed with jumping and dressage in mind, not racing. Something to look forward to and show my stallion in.

                            For those of you wondering about registration requirements, this is what is on the horse show info page:

                            The Jockey Club Certificate of Foal Registration or a copy thereof; or
                            o The horse’s lip tattoo, the horse’s 5-cross pedigree and the successful tattoo
                            lookup result from The Jockey Club’s Tattoo Identification Services, (located at
                            registry.jockeyclub.com); or
                            o If neither of the above is available, a letter from The Jockey Club verifying the
                            horse’s identity.

                              I think it's amazing! Finally a JC who is a bit forward thinking. Curious though, viney, why do you think prizes at events will make a big difference?

                                Wow. The deadline for registering is coming up FAST. It looks like they will be awarding prize money, too! So...get the word out. If you know an organizer, let them know about this program so they can apply, in time, and get the awards to give out at recognized events in 2012!
                                This is a really neat looking program by the Jockey Club. You have to think that the tremendous success of great Thoroughbreds at things like the WEG, Rolex, and Fair Hill, among many other events, have helped lead to this.

                                  Didn't read all the details so maybe someone can help me here (work interfering of course), but is this somehow different than the old Performance Horse Registry? I'm THRILLED to see it come into play and to have the JC finally get really behind a program like this... as a former PHR area rep, I'm curious how this is different (other than the obvious JC support).

                                    The PHR still exists. It's been open to all horses for quite awhile. The JC sold the database very soon after it started.
                                    The PHR issues 'papers' for any breed if the horse can be DNA'd but they likely would not be sufficient for the new JC program.
                                    PHR sponsors awards in USEF/affil rated divisions.

                                    The new JC program has different award options.

                                    Out of curiosity what was a 'PHR rep'. No such thing exists in H/J world nor was there any mention of a rep in the PHR website even when it was JC sponsored. Is it an Eventing thing?

                                    To be a success this has to be supported by USEF or the affiliates like USHJA or it will go nowhere.

                                      I wish. Mine was not tattooed, although I am not sure if he was racing bred or not (I am guessing not). But here it what it says in the press release:

                                      "Thoroughbreds registered with The Jockey Club will be eligible for participation in all T.I.P. classes and awards."

                                        Basically, because I was in eventing, I worked just with events in my area, but I coordinated sending out awards and talking to people about PHR as I went to shows. It was strictly a volunteer effort on my part... not even sure if there were other folks doing it like I was, but when it first started I was such a big supporter (having an OTTB) that I wanted to see it grow and this was my way of helping out in my area for eventing.
