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!

  • Winter Clinics with ICP Level 3 Instructor Mogie Bearden Muller

    As long as everyone else is promoting clinics, I'll add Mogie's dates to the calendar:

    She is returning from Aiken to teach once a month in the Maryland/Delaware area, latest dates are Jan. 16-17 (Worton, MD and possibly Dover, DE area), and Feb. 20-21 so far.

    Her rates are extremely reasonable and we usually have a minimal ($15 or $20) arena fee. Most of the time we will be doing the clinics in local indoor arenas selected for decent footing, and involve both jumping and dressage. Just PM for details.

    Those who ride with Mogie know how great her lessons are. Her knowledge base is very deep and her teaching is gentle yet you learn a lot! Basics but fun exercises, always something different. No lesson is the same! There is a huge advantage to ride with someone who rides consistently at the Advanced level and has the background, with a Level 3 certification, to move you up the levels so that you are prepared for anything they throw at you at the events.

    Damn, I would *so* love to ride with Mogie!

    My only problem is that A) my mare is just coming back into regular work, and B) wow, it would be SO great if she were to be coming to a venue closer to Northern VA (most of these places in MD are about 90 minutes away; and the weather had been reliably miserable in our part of the world for about 6 weeks in a row now... I realize that I am being a kvetcher here, BUT!...) I rode in a Boyd Martin clinic in December of '08, and it was at a farm in MD--about an hour and a half drive from my barn in Northen VA. As great as it was, DURING the clinic, it started to SNOW--so we had to drive the rig home in the snow. It took about 2 1/2 hours (luckily my cranky saint of a husband was driving, while we took an alternate route, which took us down 270 at 8 PM on a Saturday night), but this is not an experience I would like to repeat; It just was really *not* worth it, despite how delightful Boyd was.

    How I HATE and DESPISE winter!

    If anyone attends this clinic, I would *love* to hear a report. I have tremendous respect for Mogie--she is the bomb, and I would love to be able to take advantage of her wisdom in a clinic setting I walked the Loch Moy Prelim x-country course with her about a year and a half ago, and she was so knowledgeable and helpful. I would highly recommend trying to ride with and learn from her!)

      She is an excellent instructor and well worth the drive. Those of us in Delaware and the Eastern Shore were sorely lacking good eventing instructors! I ride such a variety of horses who are all so different and she is fantastic about giving you lots of different approaches to address each horse. I love that she has so many ways of fixing an issue as it has really added to my toolbox! She also never hesitates to get on and show you something or just to get on to feel what types of issues you may be having. It can really help me to watch someone fixing an issue if I can not get my mind around the words.

      I am in the middle of building my riding ring so extra funds are hard to come by at the moment

        i totally agree with the above. she is just 15 minutes from me. i use to see this lady on a grey horse riding a horse beautifully on my way home from the night shift. and since the eastern shore is a relatively small world. i convinced my friend we should just pop in and introduce ourselves. we did and lo and behold it was mogie. this was 2 yrs ago. she is awesome. spoke with her tonight and aiken is brrr cold but she is very busy. can't wait for a fix next weekend. i scheduled myself both sat and sun with her. then off to aiken for 3 wks in feb. yippee!!!

          Wookie, I HATE you. I would give my left arm to go to Aiken for three weeks. Whine, whine, whine and pass that cheese with it please! I think I need to start a foundation for ME to go to Aiken. Good idea, huh?
          Hope to see you this weekend then. Riding Red Horse, Rug on shelf...sigh.....

                  no whining...

                  well retread....i really shouldn't be going considering i am still paying off riley's bowel surgery...my new ottb. but he has healed and everytime i ride him i thank god i chose debt over that freakin pink syringe. even when he is bratty. couldn't even trot tonight because he was having those moments. if i had all the $$ in the world i would rescue endless ottb and more pups from the pound. as is i have 4 pound pups and two horses. but i digress...mogie literally gave me flat lessons last year at full gallop that had people stopping in their tracks because they didn't know pip could move like that or that i could look like i knew what i was doing. LITERALLY they commented on it left and right. now if my brain could only absorb everything she teaches but i am getting up there and well...

                    Holly, if you get a chance, would you try to get some video of the clinic...and do some of your great analysis and summaries of the stuff Mogie does, maybe at each level? Hey, you DID say you'd help me out while I'm recuperating!!! Ha!
