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!

  • After 16 horseless months I'm back with TWO! A bad injury with a good outcome. .

    In regards to Cooper. he'll be back! It just takes time. But time seems to take forever sometimes.

    But I'm a happy camper right now.
    But boy I've paid my dues!!

    I have a new 4 year old to campaign. He's jumped a hand full of times and we took him to his first schooling HT this weekend (BN). He topped the dressage with a 28. Had a rail in SJ. I turned to the first fence and his eyes popped out but he kept going. The in and outs scared him too.
    His name is Harry Houdini and he's from the trakehner stallion Tzigane *Pb*. Awesome little kid. Belongs to the stallions owner, Kim Hunter.

    The lil guy's school over SJ fences last month:

    We plan on the YEH5 with him and hopefully finish at Galway with the T3D next year. : )

    My big grey horsie:
    16 months of 'in stall care' really takes it outta ya. Up at 5am for a walk, 6pm for a walk, and then 11pm for a walk. Walk, walk, walk gets old really fast. I've been doing it since Aug of 2008. Well, I ponied him with the golf cart. So now he only leads on my left side. Kinda funny.

    But the horse is sound and a little too hot for me these days! Suddenly he's mentally aware that it's time to do something other than stand around. He doesn't stand so well anymore.
    My incredibly QUIET TB is now full of you know what. I've had my butt busted on the ground and now I've had to dismount twice as soon as possible. More like, um...when your front feet touch down I'd like to emergency dismount please! So we ride with ace right now. Ace saved my bootie the other day when our pasture horses started running about.
    And he even gets turned out on the weekends now. Makes me so happy.

    here is a pic of his 1st canter after 16 months of walk and a bit of trot. : )

    Tom got this pic just in the nick of time. Right after I started bawling my eyes out. lol.
    http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p...aboomhappy.jpg

    16 months off was no fun. But I feel like I have a life to look forward to again. I really thought I might have been done.
    Glad to be back in the middle of the fun. XC was just amazing yesterday.

    hope you guys enjoyed the fun schooling pics. I love 'at home' pics of the critters.

      Awesome! The new guy is beautiful, and I love your "bawling" photo!
      I just caved with my 7 months of "stall care" horse and turned him out with a quiet pony. His leg blew up, but he's unmanageable even on ace these days. He'll have the winter of turnout and we'll see what we're dealing with in the spring.
      Can you remind me what the injury was on your guy? Mine was a high hind suspensory.
      Congrats, btw!

          Gosh, you still have the best leg position I have ever seen! Goodness!

          I am so happy for you...and can't wait to hear more stories!

          The bay is lovely and I bet you have a terrific young horse year ahead of you! Was that his wee voice calling out in dressage???

            Congrats for making it through. I am dealing with my own right now, and I know how fun stall rest & rehab can be. Just finished up speaking to the vet to get "better drugs" so I can stop being dragged around and actually accomplish our hand-walking routine Only delayed my program by 6 weeks...

            Thank goodness I have a willing friend/owner who needs one of hers worked, or I'd pretty much be insane right now. (2 horses on stall rest is taking its toll.)

                      Congratulations, that is wonderful!

                      I know you've had a very long and difficult downtime with Boomer. Harry looks a super lovely horse too.

                        golf carts are your friend.

                        though I was pulled out and face planted it once or twice. lol.
                        It really is tough dishing out so much time and money and not knowing if he'll be back full stride or not.
                        but it's a chance that has to be taken.

                        My heart aches hard for Jennie right now. To have one at the top and then be forced into months and months of rehab.
                        I'm glad my horse broke before I moved him up.
                        If I had just tasted the big stuff it would have been even harder.

                        Hopefully Harry can play with the big boys and Boomer can back him up.
                        That is the plan now.
                        Gatta have two. sigh.

                        Boom's 1st job is to get going in the hunters and then hit the hunter derbies.
