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!

          Correct me if I am wrong, but you are Canadian? Same with Anthony Trollope.

          Do you have a work visa for the US? You are working in the US by going to the shows and then selling the images. Also known as scabbing by the official photographers at the shows

          In my other life, I am required to have permits and visas to work in Canada because I am a US citizen. Heaven help me if I try to take anything across Canada the might be related to my work. More paper work. I have duplicate items in my office there because it is easier.

          Perhaps I could talk to a couple of my acquaintances that work ICE and see what they have to say on the subject.

          IF I were you, I would make sure to wear clean underwear the next time you (or Anthony) cross the border. You might be "inspected" more thoroughly than ever before.

          PS I consider myself friends with many of the US photographers, including Gary from GRC and Shannon ( and I have met Piaffeprincess98 as well once), because I also am an amateur photographer and ask them questions when I see them. If I am shooting at one of their shows, they know I am not selling them or giving them away on some website or at the show.

          PPS Doesn't your initial post constitute advertising on this forum which is against the rules? Guess you have no respect for type type of decorum or rules. Says a lot about you really.

            Oh, are you the one who was shooting for the Canadian magazine? I think Emily told me you posted on here sometimes.

              At least in my experience...the offical photographers at horse events do not pay for exculsivity. If they did...that is a different story. But most of the time, they just agree to come and for that agreement, the organizers publish them in the program. But at most events....the photographers are not paying exclusive rights to shoot the event (but maybe just rights to be the official photographer named in the program).....and any photographer may come, shoot pictures and sell them. This is not scabbing at least not how I understand that term. There are some events that do have exclusivity agreements....remember the Rolex videos....where people were told that you can not post any video on youtube. This was because there was an exculsivity agreement for the video rights.

              I don't have a dog in this fight and don't really care....just glad to some times have choices as to what I want to buy....and like to look at all the photographs when freely made available.

                I find the more photographers the better! You will always get a much better selection of xc shots aince more photogs means more xc fences. Also, its awfully tough to get shots of all three phases if you are at a HT and there a several different divisions doing several different things at the same time. My mother runs 2 HTs per year and even though we have an "official" photog they don't pay anything to be there.

                  Yes Lindsay, I was shooting for a Canadian magazine.
                  It was never my intent to step on any toes. I just thought that people (not just riders, but also those who couldn't make it to the show) would like to see as many different photos as possible. There is no fee or registration required for viewing my proofs. It's a public gallery.

                  As for this constituting advertising, to be honest, I didn't read the fine print. I regularly post notices just like this on another forum and didn't realize that it may be taboo on this one. If the moderators deem this to be in violation of the rules, then please delete this thread with my apologies.

                    Hey, no toes stepped on here. I was just surprised to see another photog offering proofs. As a rider myself, I do like to see different photos from different photogs.

                      Well I certainly didn't see it as advertising. I most likely won't be buying any of those photos, but I sure like to see them! :-D

                        Well, as an owner with a horse at Fair Hill for the first time, I have to admit to purchasing photos from everyone........ You can never have too many....right? I think the photos were lovely and was glad to find out about them.

                          I agree! The photos are a wonderful gift to competitors and their families--always interesting to study. It's helpful to discover where they're posted and I always try to buy as many photos as I can afford to encourage photographers to attend events.
