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!

      I just went to the Merriam-Webster word of the day. Apparently my horse's hunter name is Nonpariel.

      My alternate name if choice is Conspicuous.

          Heh, heh. Well, I actually bought my young horse from a hunter trainer (was a fire sale--"everything under 4 must go" due to pending divorce)

          Barn name: Bizzy
          Hunter name was: Bazillion
          Eventing Name: Bizzy Signal

            Lets see... ignoring the fact I have horrified the hunters by showing my Tb's with their JC names, which I compete under everywhere, these would be the made up Hunter names...

            Lad would be Wacquoit
            Petey would be Chatham
            Lunar would be Quisset.

            Wacquoit bay is near where my grandparents had a house. Both grandparents owned homes on 2 parts of the Cape, Quissett and Chatham.

              As in, Endless amount of lunging to make him slow enough. Endless amount of time spent waiting around for a class to finish. Endless amount of money spent to earn a .50 ribbon (well, that goes for eventing too).
              A common misconception. Those ribbons are NOT $0.50! I know, because I've purchased them. (Of course, even the big-ass fancy ones don't cost nearly what a class fee is).

              I'll play.

              Hunter Name: Aphrodite, Venus, Isis, or Ishtar... or Surprise, or maybe Unexpected
              Her breed name has nothing to do with her lineage, but rather the fact that she was a surprise

              Breed Name: Sucha Special Spark
              Barn Name: Sparky, Spanky, Pudge, & Napolean
              Eventer Name: Napolean Dynamite
              Hunter Name: Capricious
              Sparky is like the girl with the curl - either very good or very bad, and I don't know which one I'll get!

                    To be fair, while I might have been too cheap/ lazy to do the paperwork to change the mare's name, I think RF Amber Eyes was a stupid name. I'm not crazy about the breeder prefix/ suffix (although I understand its importance) and I really dislike when one is tacked on by trainers/ importers etc.

                    That said, two of my three horses already have one word names-- Passing and Freeman-- and third, Miles To Go-- would probably be okay too.


                    • #50
                      Love some of these names. Well, I do prefer one word names--so some of mine already sort have hunter acceptable names. And I really prefer to show under their barn name if I can too. Been lucky and had a few with decent JC names. Of just my current horses

                      JC/Barn/Eventing/hunter name: Loveton

                      JC/Eventing/hunter: Rockstina
                      Barn: Roxie

                      JC: Blame it on Bush
                      Eventing/Barn: Porter (after the beer)
                      Hunters: Porter--guess it would be accepted as it is a beer!

                      Eventing: Muggle

                            Hunter name (right, like he could be a hunter): Up In The Air
                            What his event name should have been: Sitdownshutupandhangon!


                            • Original Poster

                              Time to play my own game.

                              Eventer name: Zizi
                              Hunter name: Implausible

                              Reasoning: 14.2hh, irretrievably skinny, turns like a BMX, very animated, has two speeds -- really fast and even faster. There is no way anyone would mistake this one for a hunter. She'd be escorted out of the warm-up ring.

                              Eventer name: Niina
                              Hunter name: Believable

                              Reasoning: Nina (Zizi's half-sister) is a beautiful, elegant, classic TB. I have been told by knowledgeable people that I was 'crazy' for not showing her in the hunters. So guess what? That's what she'll be doing this year, while she's hopefully in foal, which should help with the desired fat look. While the rest of her family is wildly hot and really attack the jumps and course, Nina is happy to go around at a nice canter and look pretty. I have no idea how this happened. (And no, I don't really plan to change her name for hunters.)

                              Eventer name: Misty Kiss
                              Hunter name: Mistakenly

                              Reasoning: Misty Kiss, who is all of three months old, already has a stripper/porn name. And at three months, it's quite apparent that she inherited her sire's high headset (yay!) and so doesn't look much like a HB prospect.

                              JC/eventer name: Star Colony
                              Hunter name: Colonoscopy

                              Reasoning: Because he's very scopey.

                                I'll play, though only one of mine would ever manage to be a hunter, and thats only if he paid attention long enough.

                                Hunter Name: Persuasian (As in she would need to be persuaded to do everything)

                                  Two years ago we were sitting in like 3rd after dressage when the gate people left the in/out gate openduring stadium and she bounced (literally) right out of the arena coming down a line and cantered down the road with me wrapped under her neck hanging on by her ears. Scared the bejesus out of everyone. I'm pretty sure I'm the reason the gate is always closed now. They still let us go XC (I reached up and grabbed the bit with my hands and pulled her to a stop) and she went clean.

                                    Elliot's hunter name would be Prevalent. He's 17.2 and wears an 87 blanket. There's a lot of him aka he's Prevalent.
