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!

  • Radnor anyone?

    I know this got tagged on at the end of the Pan Am thread, but Radnor needs its own thread, donchathink?

    I'll be there to help Jenna Schildmier with Tumble Dry, we'll be stabled with Holly Hepp and crew.

    I'll be easy to recognize, tall blonde, fat lip with bruised chin (although I'm hoping it will look better in a few more days). If not, I've already discovered it's possible to drink coffee, diet coke, water, and most importantly, beer, through a straw!

      I'll be there helping Garry Roque with Marmara and My Romance (aka 'Lips'). I'm hoping (reallyl, really hoping!) that it is drier this year than last. I'm not sure where we'll be stabled, but I'll look you up LAZ - we can have a beer together and you can tell me how you got your fat lip!

      Note to Fred - I'll post or email you when we get back and tell you how Lips did. He looks great by the way - ready to rock and roll on the cross country. (Although, I think he'd rather skip the boring, horrid dressage phase if he had his way.)

        Janette,

        I'm so sad I won't be there this year. It was fun meeting you last year, despite the weather. I still don't feel 100% dry. Do you?

        I can't wait to hear how Lips goes: it's just killing me that I cannot watch it firsthand. I do hope his flatwork will be given proper attention over the winter - particularly if he's going to move up to Advanced next Spring. Will he go to Florida this winter?

        How is your young stallion?

        Eat waffles and omelettes and think of me!

            No Robby, I still don't feel dry....you should see the raincoats, rubber boots, sweatshirts etc that I've packed. I had so much stuff, I sent it in the horse trailer as I'm sure it won't fit in the car. I'll be driving down tomorrow and I'm watching the weather forecast like a hawk.....sadly, it looks like rain on Friday.

            It's too bad you won't be there, as it would have been fun to visit in the sunshine, sitting around eating waffles and drinking cocktails....oh well, maybe next year.

            Lips is doing much better at the dressage. However, as is the case with many horses, there are ups and downs until it is really confirmed at the level he needs to be going. When he's on though, he looks great. When he's arguing, well, let's just say the entertainment value is high, what with the antics and all.

            My guy did his first prelims this year and was really good. Checkmate was his last one and it was a huge course (so big, I refused to go look at it and was horrified when I saw the pictures...my poor baby!). Forrest just had one greenie run out at a tough combination. However, he pulled a back shoe somewhere on course and really bashed his foot up. That was Sept. 6th and we're still poulticing, soaking etc as he's still not sound. Hopefully, once Radnor and Fairhill are over and I have time to ride, I'll have a sound horse to ride.

            Again, I wish you were coming, but I'll fill you in with all the scoop when I'm back.

                Would be so happy if someone could report back, especially on my friend Jill Mooney in the CCI**. I wanted to be there so badly to help her but am here at home trying to prepare for the CCI* in Kentucky! Drat the schedule, anyway.

                  I am being coaxed by the new man in my life to go up there and watch Xc this weekend while he is working. Sooo I am about a 60% chance of going now. Looking better by the day.

                  Soo I am up for a whole bunch of Omelettes and waffles!! And don't forget the shopping!!!

                    Oooooh Emily, please listen to your SO and go to Radnor! And yes, please, one of your excellent write-ups. Pics would just be icing on the cake. (Don't forget to check on my buddy Jill Mooney. She's so cool.)

                        I'd be happy to report, but I won't have internet access while I'm there. If someone wants to email me a phone # I can call with results and they can post them!

                              I will be there, holding Spots hand while her pony goes around. Also helping a young rider and generally cheering for everyone. I look forward to seeing Lips in the flesh. I have a Sir Ivor and would love to have another. I am wondering if dressage antics will be similar.

                                Thanks Janette, and give Lips a big hug and kiss from me - and best wishes for a safe trip for my little boy!
                                For those who don't know Lips, aka My Romance, is a 6 year old FULL TB A Fine Romance baby, who I bottle raised when his mommy rejected him.
                                A couple of weeks ago, at Intermediate at Glen Oro, he came SECOND, with another A Fine Romance baby (not bred by me) coming third at her first outing at Intermediate. This is 'Romancing' , a 7 yr old - from AFR's first crop - ridden by Penny Rowland. Does anyone know if Romancing/Abby is going? Romancing is 3/4 Tb 1/4 Trak.

                                anyone going with a video camera.. would it be possible to get anything of Lips going XC or stadium?

                                    I can try to get some video of your boy if time permits.

                                    I can transfer it to VHS once I get home and send it to you.

                                    No promises, but I'll try!

                                      NOthing on the official site yet. Heard they held lots of horses during the jog. With ~120 horses it took almost 2 hours.

                                        If any of you going and reporting back could check out Anne Kaufman on Jamacian Blue for me I would appreciate it. I audited a clinic she rode in last week and fell in love with her horse. Nice girl too!!
