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!

  • THIS is fall in New England - picture

    Living in New England keeps you on your toes, for sure. On Sunday, we had snow and I know I was wondering why I live here.

    Yesterday was amazing....we had a pony club mounted meeting at 5 pm...and it was mid-60's, sunny and just beautiful with the late afternoon sun on the foliage. I happened to have my camera with me, and this picture just seems to sum up just what makes New England such a beautiful place in the fall - when the weather cooperates!

    Just lovely! Great pics.

      Beautiful! Even driving to work is nicer this time of year because it's just so pretty. And we can say that with almost all our seasons. Which I guess is why we put up with the bad parts. But there are no bad parts of fall. Except that event season is over.

        Love New England. I spent eight years in Los Angeles. I did grow to appreciate the desert, but I missed the Northeast terribly. I interviewed in Providence (RI) on April 1st. There was a snowstorm with 18 inches of snow. They never thought that anyone would leave LA for that, but I could not wait to get back home.

          Here's my contribution; photos taken yesterday. I am further south so the color is not quite as intense here, except for the maples. No maples around the barn, though.

          Having an argument over whether this should be TOF (my desire) or TOH (maresy's desire), but at least the scenery is gorgeous!

          IFG, if you can believe it, I grew up in San Diego and willingly moved to New England! I love it here, except on days when I have to shovel out my car.

            I grew up all over California, most recently in San Diego and I also love it here in New England. I feel sorry for the former me who didn't understand how beautiful seasons can be and how some places have something indescribable that makes inconvenience (and sometimes, discomfort) of highly variable weather.

              Lovely. I miss New England- especially the fall. Okay- so maybe I was not feeling the love for New England fall last weekend trying to stay warm and dry at the Head of the Charles but I do miss it. There is no real fall here.

                I grew up in Maryland I am too miss fall. I miss the trees changing and the cool crisp weather. I now live in the desert of California. We have trees here... they are called Palm Trees... they are green year around... but that is the only sign of green in this brown desert. I miss the seasons, I do not miss the cold, I am spoiled by the lovely weather here in the winter, think 80's.

                    Miss thing, do you always hack with a plaited pony and a professional photographer lurking in the bushes snapping pictures at just the right time?!!

                    Never the less, some seriously nice photos.

                      Here are some photos that were taken two weeks ago at a hunt in Framingham's Callahan State Park. It was just a gorgeous day!

                        Bogie, they hunt in Framingham??? I never would have guessed, just like no one would guess that Lowell has a beautiful state forest! Hunter paces are on our list of things to do next year if I can find a team that doesn't mind "babysitting" me at first. I suspect maresy might get a little excited by other horses running and jumping.

                          I know, Callahan State Park is a jewel. One of my favorite places to hunt.

                          If you are ever interested in trying a hunt, ONBH offers a "third field" option for riders who are just starting out or who want to go at a slower pace. It's a good way to start your horse in the hunt field.

                          Hunter paces are a good way to start. Certainly that's how I introduced my current hunt horse to the idea of cross country galloping and jumping. I don't hunter pace all that often any more but I do go up to ride at Great Brook in Carlisle. If you ever want to trailer down I'm sure I could round up a few hunt people who'd be happy to ride there and give you a sense of what it's like to hunt.

                                  I absolutely LOVE fall in NE. It's without a doubt my favorite season! Perfect riding weather. I've been doing tons of trail riding and hacking out lately enjoying the beautiful scenery. Then again I truly appreciate the beauty of a fresh snowfall too!

                                      So jealous . . . grew up in New England and this time of year is amazing.

                                      In North Carolina for the last 20 yrs. Great weather except that every Autumn every leaf on every tree participates in some extreme ritual whereby they turn brown and leap to their death at exactly the same moment. It's like mass leaf-a-cide.
