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!

        We had a good day-Em's horse went well, my youngster was very good in spite of the fools rummaging around in the bushes next to our ring!!
        JBF is a wonderful venue, the courses look fabulous and we're going to have perfect weather!
        I did have a quick chat with CP and her little dog, too. They are looking quite excellent. Been a long time, eh, CP? I also saw another old friend from the past, Lois, who is the very important Safety Officer this weekend.
        Thanks to all who are pulling off this feat of running 300+ horses!!

                  Yippee!!!! the Taco man IS rather impressive...I cannot TELL you how I loved having him trot around our paddock! Billy said he was easy as forty hells to catch - trotted right up every time (CP had cautioned him that Taco often prefers to use his own judgement as to when to exit turnout) - I think horses can smell and tell when someone might ride them vs FEED them - HA!

                  Do you have any idea what place they're in? No wait - don't tell...I'm a great believer in jinxes!

                          I got a phone call a bit ago that my horse went clean XC with Sally Cousins. First novice so we are very pleased.

                            It was a super day. Every one I know had a great ride, including me, in spite of what the scoreboard might tell you!! Needless to say, I am the FIRST to jump in my Novice division in the morning!! My youngster, doing his 1st Novice, first took off with me across the first field. Well, yes, I did tell him he had to step up the pace a bit (15 time penalties last fall at BN!!) So after we got the pace under control, we galloped on down the dirt road, sailed over the sun burst ramp, cantered on to the ditch, which he jumped as if it was 4' wide and 8' deep, which brought him face to face with a cordwood pile, the likes of which he'd never seen up close. Eek and yikers, he said, and took a sharp left. Damn. So I made a circle, too small, apparently, and he stopped again. ENTIRELY MY FAULT, poor guy. Made a bigger loop around and jumped it like pie. On to the rest of the course, which he gobbled up with ease. He is going to be a very great competitor, but not just yet!! More practice, more practice, more practice. One of the most fun things is we've been seeing the girls who sold him to me and today I met the woman who got him from the track as a 2 year old! He is a dreamy little horse. I am thrilled to have him in my life.

                              Yay Matty!! I wish I could be down there enjoying it with you guys! Will you be still down the last week of March? I'm coming down for spring break that week and I called Babette w/o response. I'd love to see everyone!

                                    the wonderful Taco CLOCKED around the fun, "made us think" novice course like the pro he is!!!! Cookiepony most definitely is the one to give you the details...I swear though, I have NEVER heard so much elation and excitement in her voice (almost an hour after she crossed the finish line!) when she described the XC ride (stride for stride, jump by jump FUN!!!!)

                                      Team Henderson both went clean and lie fourth in their respective divisions this morning. Waiting for jumping results ...
