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!

      Lori, YOUR HORSE WAS A STAR! Everyone there commented on what a nice horse he was. You guys looked great!
      And it was great to meet you, and Bensmom, Talkofthetown (Bronwyn, who ended up riding my mare, and very well too) and everyone else.
      The Holling's facility was awesome, the weather great, it was a wonderful weekend.

      Unfortunately, as Bensmom mentioned earlier, due to reaggravation of an old injury by the first horse I rode in the first session, and then reinjury by Jaeger during a HUGE buck while starting in the third session, I was unable to finish so Bronwyn rode my mare.
      I still got to watch all three sessions, and had private lessons on Friday on both my girls.
      It was a great day, and I am still not so sure I didn't get more out of the clinic from the ground than I would have from the saddle. It was a great learning opportunity for everyone who was there. Jon is a wonderful teacher, very clear in what he wants and what the teaching objectives are.

      It was a wonderful day, lots of nice horses and good riding!

She was out riding a friend of the families pony that is up for sale (she's working several times a week for her now that it's home) and she told the friend all about the day several times.

            I only have a few that have other riders in them. Shots from the water and from everyone listening to Jon talk after the course at the end. I will put what I have up on a photo sharing site for everyone to see.

              You know, I realized later after talking to you who you were! I can be kinda slow in that respect...I got so focused on the riding, it wasn't til I was driving home that I thought, dang, how many were there that I spoke to who post on her? What an idiot I am for not asking!
              Sorry that you were still hurting and couldn't ride. That sucks. Hope you are feeling better.
              I adopted Tucker when he was 6 months old from a Premarin farm, so it really makes me feel good to know that all this work and not riding for so many years is paying off! I broke him as a 2 and a half year old but have been taking it really slow due to his size. We didn't start jumping courses until this past summer. I cannot wait to get him to RH now!!

                Haha Me too I didn't figure it out til later either
                but your boy is very nice. Everyone was watching him, and you looked great too.
                I was actually just looking at your site and wondering about the
                Old People's POny Club thing. Could you send me some more info on that, that sounds interesting.
                I"m usually up to go ride at different places too so shoot me a pm or an email if you are going out and maybe I can meet you somewhere.

                  Thank you Wynn!! I cannot tell you the fun I had on your mare!! (Even with the "mare-ish" tendencies! She taught me as much as Jon did )

                  Overall, the clinic was such a fantastic experience - and the Holling's are GREAT people. I just wish I had another clinic of their's to look forward to now!
                  Jon is such a great teacher - I had as much fun watching the other groups as I did riding in my own!

                          Will do! Check out the ORPC website..I think you can google old people riding club. We have a blast..everything involves riding, eating and drinking! We meet monthly at Carrabas and we are a big support group. We have riders of all levels and disciplines.
                          I hope my next outing will be next month to school at RH. Will let you know if you are interested!

                            Melissa (second group, on Bailey the chestnut) was RAVING about Wynn's chestnut mare. Just raving and raving about how she'd like to ride a horse like that !!

                            I had a "minute-by-minute" phone call from Melissa on Saturday night - she was so thrilled and she thought "the girl on Casper" (whose name I have forgotten) was SO BRAVE.

                            Thanks again to Grady for organinzing this. I wish I could have been there.

                                Eeek - I was "not that nice"?? FC - please tell her I'm sorry - I didn't mean to be! I can just be direct sometimes (doesn't always go over well I see ). I thought she and her pony were great though!

                                    Oh gosh! Thanks for clarifying! I was wracking my brain about it! hehe I'm so glad she had a great time - I was amazed at how confident everyone was by the end of the clinic! Jon did a great job setting that "mini course" up at the end!

                                    Cliche is an imensely talented pony though, and Wynn definitely was super generous in letting me ride her! I feel very lucky to have had that experience!

                                      The Girl on Casper is mine, her name is Kaitlin. She was SO GLAD to see another kid her age until she found out Melissa had been eventing already! Then her nerves got her all over again, Kait thought Melissa and Bailey were wonderful.
