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!

    Thanks for posting! It would be a huge shame for a Jim clinic not to fill, and boy would I love to play at Pine Top with him.

    Will have to wait til next week when I chat with my surgeon - I got spayed last week, and feel great, but agreed not to swing a leg over a horse until my two week check up.(and no, I know two weeks isn't going to give a sudden green light, but maybe there will be walk work on steady beasts in my permission slip??)

    Oh, loophole realization! I didn't promise ANYTHING about staying off ponies!

      I dont even remember hearing about it, and I check the Area 3 website almost daily (maybe its time to send in my Adult Riders application...)

          Where is this posted?

          I sent an e-mail to Willow South, but I don't see this clinic posted anywhere. Depending on the details, my daughter would participate with one or two horses and I know some others who might be interested.

              In theory I would love to, but riding in August in GA is not my idea of fun, and I'd hate to waste such an opportunity by passing out mid-ride

              I see he's listed for KY in Sept, so I'm aiming for that one


              • Original Poster

                I only heard about it through a student who checks Jim's blog.... I haven't seen it advertised ANYWHERE. So spread the word, maybe we can get enough folks to make it happen!

                  Rats, the Sept clinic is cancelled. Same weekend as the Classique at KHP.

                  I really would love to ride with him, but I just don't do well in the heat I'll come audit though, if that helps?

                    Any trust-fund babies want to pay for my gas and new tires on my truck and trailer? Froggy and I would love to go.

                      Hey all. I am helping Tawn with it as her horse is in the hospital. I'll post info as I get it from her. Will be getting info on the net as fast as possible. My email is gi2@bellsouth.net so you have an extra way of getting info to us.


                      • #12
                        I emailed Tawn this morning and got a response... she said they need 12+ training level riders and that it doesnt look so good.

                        Such a shame! What a wonderful opportunity. I'd go without a horse to to glean wisdom from him.

                          any idea how much it is?

                          i don't think i'm ready for him yet... not to mention i'm already doing a lellie lesson, ralph clinic, and big bear... plus hopefully another two lellie lessons.... so i really really can't spend ANY more money this month Nor... can i roll it over into next months budget... since i've already spent that too!

                          and yeah... really really hot! it's a heat index of 101 here today!!! and i'm not too far from pine top.

                          but it does sound like a good opportunity. it's a shame it may not fill....especially since there's a big waiting list for ralph..


                          • #14
                            If only it wasn't during the week I know of at least three or four people as well as myself that would sign up in a heartbeat. As is, I might know one, so I'll pass the word. I was lucky enough to do a clinic with him in February and learned so much. If you can't afford to go ride, you really should go watch, all sessions, not just yours. And he is appropriate for all levels, so don't feel that you can't do it because you're not a *ed rider yet.


                            • #15
                              Clinic has been canceled by Tawn.

                                First I heard of this clinic was here of course. Too bad it wasn't posted on ARea 3's website. I would have jumped at the chance to ride with JW again....but the new partner I have now just isn't ready for 2 hr sessions. He's only been out of the pasture for 2 wks and he was out in the pasture for about a year so I'm taking it slow for him and me. Maybe next winter....

                                  well damn. I was hoping to go!!! And I just recruited three others!

                                      Too bad it was cancelled... not sure I would have been in any way ready or even able to go, but still...

                                      Cost would have been around $400.

                                      Too bad it wasn't advertised better.

                                        Two who would have gone

                                        I just found out about this yesterday through a random e-mail. It was not advertised anywhere in area 3. I know myself and a friend would have loved to have gone. We have been saying forever that he is a clinician we would love to ride with and make the money and time happen for. I am just dissapointed that poor notification caused us to miss out
