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!

  • The website is functional and the Sponsor Coupon/s are up!!

    It's not done but it's navigational.
    No need to tell me about spelling errors just yet. : )
    Photoshop pictures will appear eventually on all pages. As will there be a phat links page.
    I gave my webmaster names and links to post just like everyone else has on their personal sites and what does he do? He goes to each link site and tags/copies the logo so instead of having the name to click on, the site will have logos. : ) Totally cool! Really good for those of us who cannot read. (Purp raises hand!)

    I have two Proposals out that hopefully will end in more coupons for my dear friends, clients, and students.

    Go check it out. Legacy Tack may have a goodie for you on the sponsors page. (Hint)

      Very nice!!

      Have fun with Carsten (on schedule for Feb 27th). My last memory of Carsten was at the last Camino 3-day. Everyone had asked him if he wanted a beer and he scoffed at the Bud Light. Then I walked out of the trailer, he took a look at my hand and said "You have Corona??" and asked for a beer..lol.

      Now I'm all nostalgic about Camino. Fond memories of Mike Winter telling me that the 4 year old i was riding (obviously not at the show) would not always be a spaz, of my friend talking about the very sweet and good looking guy who turned out to be Reed, watching Ralph and Winston, and Kim on He's Got Rhythm....

      Sorry to veer off course there. Your site looks great to me!

        lol.
        Carsten is the coach I work with the most. Well, he's the only coach I work with right now. You have to have emotions of steel to ride with him for sure. I love his vocab.

        I'm taking some of my students up there to work with him, thought I'd go along, hack the Boom Man and help out with the clinic. Maybe sneak a DQ lesson if Boos is strong enough to handle it.

                  Those are my latest rides.

                  And I've joined American Competitive Trail Assoc. so we'll have pictures of the crazy trail obstacles encountered at competitions!

                  oui, and I really need to do some high level hunters with the funny gray horse too. I just can't afford everything I want. sigh.

                    Funny Gray horse comes with warning.

                    WARNING, gray horse jumps with eyes closed and goes out of his way to run directly into trees.

                    So as long as you don't mind finishing XC at places like Pine Top a little bloody around the edges then you are good to go. Show me the money!

                        You will love it. This is such good stuff for all horses -- and a really fun day out for the rider.

                          Funny that closed eye thing...I am always amazed when I see that!! Not to worry about the trees. My knees, along with many other body parts are so banged up, replaced, etc...that I can no longer feel the trees.

                              I seem to remember a picture showing you with your eyes closed too! did you catch that from him or was that your attempt at "using the force" to navigate XC?

                                Jumping with your eyes closed is o.k. It's when they start jumping with their eyes closed and one hoof tied behind their back that you have to start worrying.

                                  Purpl, I always enjoy your posts so had to check out this thread/your website. Lovely pictures, grey horse really knows how to use his front end over those jumps!! He is so cute, he looks like he just wants to take a little snooze over the boring stadium jumps
                                  Fear is the rocket sauce.

                                    Thanks a lot Terrysmom. I had forgotten about the double eyes closed.
                                    I think I caught it from him.

                                    Nothing like running blindly through the woods at 600mpm.
                                    NO WONDER we run into trees!!!
                                    his ears are pricked. Wonder where he's looking?

                                      I like! Please check it in Firefox 3.0, though. The logo image in the corner and the stripe down the left side don't line up properly in that browser.

                                      In general, one should trust the rendering of a site in FireFox over IE. Firefox correctly renders your html as coded; IE will try to make it look the way it thinks you meant it to look.

                                      You coded this with dreamweaver, right?
