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!

JJs needed at Morven HT to support VA PonyClub

  • JJs needed at Morven HT to support VA PonyClub

    Hi Everyone,

    The Virginia Regional Pony Club has been given the task of providing JJs for the Morven HT on, Sunday, October 4th. We have supported the Morven HTs for a long time. By doing this Morven gives us a discount when we use the park for our Rallies, Ratings, Clinics, and such. Our ability to use Morven Park helps our Pony Club members and the Virginia Region to create wonderful Horsemen and Horsewomen. Without facilities like Morven we would have no where to teach or have activities for our members. As you would expect it is quite expensive to use the facilities, so the discount helps us tremendously.

    This year, many of our older members are away at college and we are still in need of a number of JJs to complete our task. The requirement is to be at least 16 years old. We especially need JJs for the Prelim Division. My understanding is this would be approximately 3-4 hours worth of JJing.

    So, any of you Cothers out there that can spare a Sunday Morning to help us out, it would be so very much appreciated.

    If you can help us out, please PM me and I will send you the email address of our Virginia Regional Coordintor for this event.

    Thanks So Much!
    We buck for Joy!

        Hey, JT, I just checked the Omnibus, and it appears that A and I do x-country on Sat.?!?

        How is this possible? I would think (assume?) that all x-country would be on Sunday...Tony and Diana wanted to come out and watch--and Diana wanted to take some action pix of the "big boys" doing x-country for her portfolio (T could JJ, since D is only 15...)

        Please send me an e-mail to clarify, since I wanted to try to squeeze in a trip over there myself, but I have that CT on Sunday (and lessons on Sat.) so won't be able to volunteer. But the family might be able to--however, Diana has a soccer game at noon on Saturday

        This would be a great opportunity for *anyone* (especially the younger folks) to see some ULRs and ULhorses doing their thing, at a wonderful venue. It's not only fantastic fun, but enormously educational (and a responsibility that you will be guaranteed to feel good about; giving back to this sport is always so gratifying...)

        Morven's HTs are not going to last forever, I fear...

          I got an email from Morven earlier in the week that says they have a record number of entries. Advanced dressage will be on Friday, sj and xc on Saturday. Intermediate and training will run all three phases on Saturday, and prelim and novice will run on Sunday.

            There is a possibility I would be available on Sun. AM but please PM me ASAP about it, as I have some circumstances that would require me to drop off a horse and I will have a truck and trailer as transportation so would not have something to drive out on course, if you need wheels to JJ there.

                  Carol, thanks so much for thinking of us, and trying to get there. I don't know of a transport service either that goes that far out. Wish I had a way to get you there.
                  You are a dear heart.

                    Agreed; Carol is the bomb! And SO generous with her time, as well as her support of the sport...I can only hope for everyone's sake that someone can come up with a solution to her "transportation problem". Hang in there, Carol, and thank you!

                      we still need JJ for the Morven Park HT

                      We are still in need of JJs for the HT. I have just been updated that we will need a total of 19 JJs for both Prelim and Novice. Please let us know if you can help out, as this is very important to the Virginia Region Pony Clubs and helps us afford to use the facilities at Morven Park for out activities. We are still short JJs for Sunday. I am told there is usually a gift in the package for the JJs. And you get a free lunch :-)
                      This is only a week away, and we need to confirm who can be there. Please PM me if you can help and I will provide your information to our coordinator.

                      Thank You,
                      Happy Appy (a PC Mom)
