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 would like to announce that I have been awarded the very prestigious Perpetual Lawn Dart Achievement Cup. I know, it's a big deal.

            I plan on bequeathing it to it's next recipient at The World Equestrian Games and then referring to myself in the third person when talking about how much I mean to the Games. They have been absolutely inundating my email with requests regarding the book I'm going to write someday about being the first recipient of The Award.

            (The requests are actually restraining orders, but only because they don't remember meeting me).

            I'm also taking requests for speaking engagements, but PLEASE call early as my calendar is filling up quickly. Also a reminder to read my "Speaking Engagement Agreement" which outlines my requirements (I don't think we need another faux-pas of my M&Ms not being separated by color).

            My "Airs above ground while en route to hitting ground" are a result of my eleventy years training with the absolute best. Trust me, they ALL know me really, really well and will vouch for my abilities. I am not a fraud.

            All you haters can just go &*!!# yourselves if you think I have time to listen to your drivel. I am the real deal. If you'll wait just a minute I have to go, but one of my many followers is going to join COTH to speak highly of me. Ignore the similar writing styles, merely a coincidence.

            That is all.

                Nick Peronace: Ok. I feel lots of other horses with better movements should have been on our team. Ralfaca doesnt belong there an he is getting weak scores. His rider is wonderful, and u know him personally from almost being a working student for him many years ago, but I wish he was riding something with more expression. Ralfaca scored big here in America because of who owns him, but on an international level, no one cares who owns him so they are judging what they see.

                  "Rafalca is a MARE" pretty much sums that up.

                  Has he mentioned "almost" being a working student for Jan Ebeling before? So that's almost working for Van Olst and almost being a working student for Jan Ebeling. Did I miss anyone? And was I the only who imagined NP being a working student for Rafalca based on his phrasing?

                    This is hilarious. I "liked" it and invited a bunch of (deranged) friends to check it out.

                    One major criticism, though. Cats are warm-blooded. Do we really need one more group that perpetuates warmblood bias in dressage? I am so sick and tired of getting politically-motivated low scores at CDIs (cat dressage invitationals) just because my dressage star is an iguana.

                          Interesting enough his comments on the above mentioned Dressage Today post in FB is gone. I think it's safe to say he's keeping close tabs on everything that is said/found here and whenever somebody finds a past 'gem' of his on FB he is going and deleting it!

                              I think a "ralfaca" may be like an alpaca. Perhaps an alpaca hybrid? And sure NP has a point, there should be no alpacas in Olympic dressage. They are probably 3 movers at best.
                              Let me apologize in advance.

                                I can still see the comments. I had no idea that NP knows Jan personally because he was almost a working student for him! Then again, I didn't know Jan rode a gelding named Ralfaca. I'm learning so much about dressage these days. I'm certain this was about the time DT approached him to write an article, as NP clearly has a finger on the pulse of dressage...

I have been home sick for the past two days with the worst case of flu I have ever had and have had no strength to do anything but sleep and surf. Guess I should thank Nick too. If it weren't for delusional people like him, I would not have so much to keep me entertained while I sit under 7 blankets and die. Still sorry I never got to see the monkey/football video, but I will get over it as long as this thing train wreck keeps going.

                                        When i saw those dressage cats on one of the other threads, I thought it was great. Unfortunately, my 20 yr old cat and my 17 yr old cat and my ex-barn cat who is 10, aren't into performing.

                                        Please keep this thread open. The mixup on Romney's horse's sex and name is hilarious. And please, someone go to one of his clinics next time in PA or NJ and take video!!!
