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!

        Issued by Galway Downs International Three-Day Event at 6:00 pm

        It is with deepest regret that we announce that Chummin, owned and
        ridden by Lisa Peecook, expired on course in the CCI1* without Steeplechase of the Galway Downs International Three-Day Event in Temecula, California, USA.

        Chummin, a 7-year-old, gelding, collapsed between fences 15 & 16.
        There was a full paramedic and veterinary team present within moments of the collapse. There was no indication of distress prior to the incident. There will be a necropsy performed on Chummin.

        Ms. Peecook was checked by medical personnel on site and was released.
        The organizers and officials of the Galway Downs International
        Three-Day Event would like to extend their deepest sympathy to the Peecook Family.

          Lisa is devastated as anyone would be, her horses live on her farm and are part of her family. He was super fit and a picture of health so it of course was a shock. She thought he pulled a shoe and that he felt funny behind so PULLED up ASAP, smart rider and quick thinking. Sadly it took a few moments for him to pass and anyone who has ever watched one knows the horses are calling out. Lisa is one of the nicest ladies you would want to know and my heart goes out to her. She and Mike will have a long drive home tomorrow :-(

            It was very sad. We were there today, though we didn't see it happen. I watched him go around the first half of the course and thought he looked great. I remember thinking that he looked like a cute little Thoroughbred and looked like he was a fun ride. Never would have thought he'd collapse on the back half of the course. My condolances to Lisa and her family.

              My condolences to the owner. Thank God she had the sense to realize something was wrong and pulled him up.

                  I am very, very sorry for Lisa Peecook and all of Chummin's connections. It must be awful.

                  I am truly glad, however, that the commitment and the funds to do these necropsies came from the Safety Summit in 2008. And hope everyday that the information gathered will help us protect our competition horses even better.

                      Chummin (TB, by Summing) came to Lisa from the Thoroughbred Rehab Center. We at TBRC were terribly proud of his and Lisa's success and followed their successful competition career. Leigh Gray and all of us at TBRC send her our most sincere condolences.

                        ON another note.. Leigh is amazing, she had several horses in the event at Galway come through TBRC and well it is awesome. Elk Mountain is one example of a race horse who came through that great program, ran his first * this weekend at galway...

                          JumpingBug--Actually Elk Mountain ran in the CIC* at Twin Rivers and came third. Shirley has had several TBRCI horses and has done really well with them. At Twin, I suggested to Malcolm that we should have a prefix on their names so we could get free advertising when he announced.

                              should have said his first CCI * (sorry GG :-).
                              I own 3 from the program myself. There are a lot of them out there, Shirley does a good job at getting them out there! Monty (elk Mountain) was a very good boy this weekend indeed.

                                So sad. How wonderful she knew her horse so well and pulled him up when she felt something was wrong. Thats a horse lover and a true competitor. My prayers are with her and family.

                                    Cindy, do you know what became of Echo Eddie? I saw him a few years ago with Shirley at Copper Meadows...almost fell over when I saw his name in the entries!

                                      A neighbor's child (only 18 or so) recently died playing basketball of the same type of aneurysm. Very sad.
