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!

    It was Redline. They charge $10 to see the photos, so I didn't...

      The photographer posts here so he's easy to get in touch with if you want something.

        Redline Event Photography took stadium pics. However, you have to pay $10 to view the photos on the web; that fee will go toward buying a photo from the show.

        I'm a bit disappointed in this policy; I think I had 7 pics to choose from, and I think only 3 or 4 were over jumps.

        I completely get charging a fee, but if you're going to do that, take some more pictures to make it worth my $10.

              If everyone didn't STEAL the photos (when posted on websites), the photographers wouldn't feel compelled to do this.

              STOP IT! It's making life more difficult for the rest of us (AND for the pro photographers) just because you want to post pix of your horse on Facebook, for your friends to see. (Just steams me, since I KNOW my teenaged students do this--shame on 'em!--and it results in these policies that then punish the rest of us. )

                  I agree. I like Redline Guy, but if I'm going to pay $10, I would just like to have more photos from which to select. Nothing more, and nothing less.

                    I may be a Kraut by heritage, but when it comes to action, I am too @#$dammed nice (and too much of a kindheart) to "discipline" anyone. Except perhaps my teenaged daughter. (And of course THAT goes over well ) This same attitude does NOT apply to dogs and horses, of course...

                      And stop calling me Yvonne! (Shades of Airplane.)

                      My daughter calls me this (and various other Facebook friends--of which you are NOT one!)

                      Okay, back to our regularly scheduled programming.

                      Just saying, I understand where Redline is coming from, and unfortunately, the reason they HAVE to do this is because they (among other pro photographers) are losing money as a result of people stealing images from them. Since there is no way to STOP people from doing this, we must must all pay the price. (If it were my computer savvy DAUGHTER doing this instead of my students, there would be some major ass being kicked! She is not a rider, though--and doesn't do this on *my* behalf...plus knows that I wouldn't sign off on it.)

                        I have made it a policy not to put COTH-folk on my Facebook Friend list. I get enough of their personal drama here as it is.

                          You know, I'd probably pay to see some pictures if there were some FREAKING CROSS COUNTRY PICTURES. I bought my last picture from him last year because I'm so sick of getting excited about xc pictures just to find out there is nothing but stadium. I'm an eventer...it's ALL ABOUT the xc to me. And I know he's a one man operation and it's easier to take lots of pictures in stadium, but I find it hard to believe that you can't find a good spot on the xc course that you take multiple pictures of multiple fences.

                          Rant over.

                            Seriously!

                            Why would a photographer NOT take x-country pix at a HT?!? That's what *everyone* wants to see! (And yes, it would seem like a no-brainer--but apparently not. Maybe someone can mention this to him?)

                              If only it were so easy. Sometimes you can get lucky and land a spot that does in fact cover multiple fences, like on the outer edges of FPP where things wind around the perimeter, but it's typically very hard if not impossible to attempt to cover multiple fences unless you're smack dab in the middle of a tightly packed course with a relatively unobstructed view or you have one seriously expensive lens with a long focal length that can reach across the course. The standard is 70-200mm which doesn't really go that far when you get right down to it. You can extend it to get more coverage but you introduce a lot of distortion by doing that. The easiest thing to do is to look for a good spot that gives you great coverage of a single point and stay there.

                                  Yeah, aren't there a whole bunch of jumps on and around the crest of the hill ?

                                  I had a super crappy stadium ride and even lost my stirrup over the last two fences (can you say rusty as all he!!?), so I imagine the pictures are horrid- not because of the photographer but because of the rider. Based on that, I am having a hard time justifying paying to see pictures that are potentially not worthy of buying.

                                      Of course, but mine is more then mindset, it really was a baaaaad ride that I am still kicking myself over and I don't need to pay $10 on the off chance that there actually was a good jump that was captured on film somewhere .
