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!

  • Greenwood Farm HT Check In Thread

    Okay.

    So I am excited to go to Greenwood Farm's fall HT even if it is to watch my friend show my pony in their first HT together. He has been out on lease to a different friend in Kansas City for the Summer but now is back in Oklahoma with my friend Fran for the fall/winter/spring until I get done having the kiddo and get clearance to ride again. I am bummed about not getting to ride but I will be having lots of fun braiding and primping him up!

    Anyone else going to be there????

    I'll be there!

    I will be checking in volunteers on Friday, 11-7, and will be competing Saturday and Sunday at my *hopefully* last novice event. Famous last words, right??!?

    If anyone is around and wants to say hi and/or get pressed into service (only if you want to, of course), drop by and say hi on Friday! Otherwise, you will have to spot me on the wild woman, muttering "whoaaaaaaa dammmmmmnit" during every phase Saturday and Sunday.

        Wahoo!!! You keep it up and I will have to stop calling you "that super awesome dressage trainer I know" and start calling you "that jerk who scores in the 20's all the time."

          oh yay Bobby!
          Spanky is the horse that will be there?
          Do you still have the gray horse?

          I'll be there braiding!
          If anyone needs their horse braided give me a shout.
          I do sewn in buttons.

            Yeppers,

            Spanky is showing in Novice w/ Fran. She is hoping that if it goes well to move up to Training on him at Texas Rose. I don't know if I will be able to make that show as I will be getting within about 6 weeks of popping out the kid and Hubby isn't that fond of me being 5 hours away. LOL.

            I sold the gray horse to Alex who has since re-sold him. I think he will be at Greenwood showing, but I don't know for sure.

            I gots myself a fancy young grey Oldenburg that I am ready to get started next year and tear it up with. Little brat is lucky that I cannot ride or he would be getting started right now!

                Cyriz and I will be there. It will be his 2nd event after a 4 1/2 hiatus in the dressage ring. He'll be doing OT with Mike. If all goes well, then back to Prelim.

                      I do indeed. She is an eternal optimist with the horses and really has done a great job with my guy who can be a bit of a head case.

                      BTW, you and Dante are quite the local celebrities...its really nice to see a San Antonian at the upper levels.

                        Wow, that's a wonderful thing to hear, thank you so much! I was just going to ask if you'd please say hi to her for me; she put me on the correct path to begin with and I owe her immensely for starting me off right. Such a great person! Glad to see she has such wonderful riders working with her.

                          Anyone know Kristi Radosevich?

                          I believe she's from Wy., but I saw she's entered at Greenwood (in Inter.). Anyway, if anyone knows her I'd like to get a msg. to her, and once again I'm going out of town and will miss Greenwood

                                  My horse should be stabled fairly close to her and one of my friends is getting coached by her trainer, so I could pass something along.

                                      Just wanted to get the word out that Christie is still in need of volunteers for both Saturday and Sunday!!!! Stadium and Dressage ring stewards, parking stewards and other assorted spots still open.

                                      Please, please, please - volunteer, sign up your hubs or daughter or son or parents or best friend to volunteer, find some time. This is a great event that cannot run as smoothly without YOUR help! There are jobs where you can sit in the shade, there are jobs where you can be close to the action. Support your local eventing scene with a few hours of your time - gifts, food and raffle tickets for prizes are a given.

                                      Email Christie at Greenwoodfarminc@aol.com or PM me for her cell #.

                                        I wish I could come, even if to just volunteer (I did that last time!), but Austin City Limits music festival is that weekend. Dang it! Maybe next year.....I love Greenwood! Everyone have a blast, and kick on!
