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!

  • Rolex THree Day Coolers on Ebay!

    There are 3 Rolex wool coolers posted on Ebay...

  • #2
    Any guess as to who the former owner(s) is(are)? One would have had to go to Rolex 3x or have 3 horses entered right?
    Things happen for a reason...so when I reach over and smack you upside the head, just remember...you gave me a reason!

          Well, dang, now I bet I know who it is. Neat coolers -- I don't think I could put it on my horse though if we didn't earn it.

            So please PM us warmbloods, who is it?
            She has a montana email account.
            And we know her first name, as we warmbloods bought one.
            We're not eventers, LOL, we're jumpers. But we just might give the one we bought to a deserving Cother for Xmas, if she'll sign up for elf duty and give to someone else. (Presuming that the post office doesn't lose the one we bought tonight on ebay.) It might be Xmas in July, well in June, for her.

              I'll sign up for elf duty! What do you want me to do
              I made an offer of $50 for one that sold but that's my budget limit for this sort of thing. I just think it's a neat part of equestrian history AND something that could actually be used.

              I have a couple old western saddles that belonged to Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. I like to pretend that Mick Jagger rode in them But I don't know what do with except keep them in the basement, as they'd be too narrow for any modern quarterhorse backs nowadays.

                    We don't know whether they are winner or participant coolers. We're jumpers, so we don't event. (Although the importer of one of us claimed to have eventide one of us 2x after importation. But hey, he was taught NOT to step in the liverpool, so he wasn't a water horse on course.

                    We're going to, if the post office doesn't lose or steal the cooler we bought, give it away to someone who events if she'll sign up for elf duty at Xmas and give a gift to someone who needs one. Like wool is not our thing, we're in the south, and eventing is not our thing. Actually, working is not our thing either, come to think of it.

                    But we do know the name of the seller now, LOL. While she's not in Montana as her email suggests, she is in NC and has a farm there, but google tells us warmbloods it's for dressage. Like duh, like we warmbloods are not dumbbloods! One of us has lots of arab in her, and the other has tons of TB and a little arab in his bloodlines. We can google!

                    Ellebeaux we saw where someone had made an offer on the one with the least moth holes, tears, etc., and we didn't know it was you! If the other Cother for some reason doesn't want to do elf duty for a deserving person, you can do it. We did elf duty last year for the first time, and decided to just do gifting on off topic this coming Xmas. We cannot get gifts as our meanie owner says every day is WB day, so we just give away her money at Xmas, LOL.

                      Just saw where the other 2 coolers sold too. so hopefully Cothers got them both.

                        There was a 1998 Rolex square cooler posted on Ebay maybe 2 months ago. It had white logo and lettering, with the year as part of the emblem. It went for $41.00.

                          OOOOOH, I'm totally down with being an elf this year, if the other COTHer doesn't want to do it. I just can never think of a good gift. This would be a GREAT gift!

                                Hey Starhouse, didn't we warmbloods buy an ornament from you last Xmas when we were eleanor's elf? We didn't know you were one of those daredevil eventers!!!!

                                BTW everyone, STarhouse makes some great Christmas ornaments of people's horses. Never too early to order and beat the rush for secret santa! (Mum's the word on our owner, Starhouse! She had to get the gift as we're not allowed to drive to the post office and we surely aren't going to trot down there.)

                                  But they might fit a TB! I have a lovely western saddle right now...but no horse that it will fit. Not sure when I will have a barrel shaped quarterhorse again.....someday.

                                    And yes of course, your secret's safe with me! I would never expect such dignified warmbloods to run errands.

                                        I spent the night in the home of a BNR once-the blanket on my bed was a Rolex cooler. I thought that was pretty great.
