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!

        There were notices on his signs at Poplar though that said he wasn't posting any of the photos on his website.

          Well. . . that's a little stupid. Our horse made his debut with his new rider this past weekend, placed well and I'd like to look at the photos with an eye to purchasing one or two. Will check his website anyway.

            Pegasus, try emailing him. I don't think any proofs will be put up online.

              FWIW, every time I have seen that sign posted outside his trailer at Poplar the proofs have been posted online within a few days

                  Good luck. He rarely responds to email, and even if you get an order placed, it may not arrive until the next year Seriously, I wouldn't waste my money.

                  I was at a dressage show in November, he never posted photos, hasn't responded to email either.

                    I've ordered from him twice. First time was on line after a show. Took months to get them. Had to involve show secretary before he even responded. Then had to threaten to get credit card and attny involved.

                    The other time I bought while at show. Got them a month later go figure. Good luck either way.

                      Ah. Well, ok then. Thanks for the heads up. Why does Donna let him on the property?

                        I don't know - I complained more than once during the initial order, and she did have someone else do the next show or two, but he's back. I will say that it was AFTER that incident that I ordered at the show and I did get the photos about 4 weeks later (I was actually getting ready to send another first, complaining email but got the photos the next day). However, I tried to email him twice about photography rights to use for a magazine, but never heard from him. Will be interesting to see if you hear anything from him.

                          This reminds me I order a pic from the Nov Poplar and never got it. Off I go to storm the barricades.

                            There was a thread about him on this Forum not too long ago. I encourage any of you that have had a problem to email Donna with a complaint, perhaps one day they'll make a change?

                            I have had to get her involved multiple times, she said that last year was his 'last chance' to shape up, but sounds like he's still there, and still doing crummy business.

                              I ordered a few photos from him at a fall 2011 poplar and didn't get them until a couple of months later. I emailed and called several times before they were delivered. Annoyed but I did get my pictures.

                                He always puts them up online always, even when he says that they won't be... sometimes it takes a couple weeks, just keep checking back on his site.

                                I've had major issues with him both times I've ordered photos, enough that I didn't order a stunning shot from Nov because I didn't want to deal with that shit again.... Donna knows, she doesn't want to bother with changing photographers for some reason. If you do order, be careful and be pro-active. One time, I had to threaten wanting my money back and getting AMEX involved because the site said that they were shipped a month before they really were... he was very quick to send them after that

                                    I was a bit dismayed having just read this thread to find he was the photographer at Rocking Horse this past weekend.

                                      My friend had the same experience...it was over 6 months that she finally received a CD she ordered.

                                      I ordered pics when I was at the show, and got them no problem. Maybe it is better luck to order at the show?

                                        People like this are what give us good, PROFESSIONAL* photographers a bad name. Which is why so many of us have given up show/event photography. It's a shame.

                                        My sister-in-law once ordered a division of video from a show her daughter attended. Six months and several attempts at contact later, she received a letter: wife left, despondent, blah blah blah "Please pray for me and your tapes." God help us.
