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!

  • Waredaca Unrecognized Nov. 4th, Who's Going?

    I will be there bright and early for the Novice division. My dressage time is at 7:54, yikes. Plus I have about an hour and a half drive up. Oh well, at least I will be done early.

    Anyone else going? I always love to meet fellow BB members.

    Im going!

    I'm going for my guy's first Beginner Novice (at least with me). My dressage isn't until 12, so you probably won't still be around. I am lucky as I don't have to be there early and I am only 5 minutes away! I have friends riding Novice also. It should be a great event. If you are still around, say hi. I'll be on the pinto pictured in my profile. Good Luck!!

          I will be grooming for mythical and my new guy. She's taking him in BNHB for me . As usual, just look for the giant appy with no tail .

          Congrats on your return Meredith! Looking forward to seeing you cross the finish line on your new guy.

              will miss you guys, but will be at Virginia. Only in area II is there Plantation unrecognized on Saturday, Waredaca unrecognized on Sunday and Virginia recognized running through the weekend, and as I understand, all quite full.
              OTTBs rule, but spots are good too!

                Mere- yes, he did come with a tail extension (I handed over my check, they handed me his fly sheet and tail ). I'm not sure if we will actually get the extension in for the show or not. I worry that putting it in will damage what little tail he does have, and when discussing putting the tail in for Sunday, the BO last night said "Aww, but it's part of his character!"

                We still need a bunch of volunteers! Anyone who competes and brings a buddy to volunteer gets a free xc schooling pass .


                • #9
                  Yup, I'll be there on the big spotted Moosetracks! I had a really good ride on him last night, so I'm excited. I don't ride til noonish, so I'm sure I'll be volunteering prior.

                  If you're not riding, or if you are and have a friend that's coming, please consider volunteering!

                      I'll be there! My first ride time is at 11:52 and we're doing BN. I'll be on a white horse named Alatar. I haven't evented for a little while, but we got some schooling in over the summer so we'll see how this goes. Actually "MeredithClark" and I will be there together. Hope to meet lotsa people there!

                        The Buglet ("With Sprinkles") is going to her first Novice with my trainer. I was originally going to, but won't be able to go. I hope the pictures come out well. So proud of my pony.

                          Sounds like many of you got better times than me, however that means I will get home early enough for afternoon nap, right? I figure I have to leave absolutely no later than 5:30am I just keep telling myself with the clocks being set back it will actually be 6:30am. So if anyone is there early, please come up and say hi. I will be riding the mare pictured in my profile.

                          Westlaw, it looks like your mare is first to go in our division, so your trainer's ride times are even worse than mine.

                          Good luck to everyone, and here's hoping it isn't too cold in the morning.

                            Poor Jumper63!!

                            (I am "barely conscious" and zombiie-like at that hour myself , and it seems like I have had MANY ungodly early times this year...)

                            In any case, good luck to you!!!

                            I'll be doing the Training Championships there the day before (and we have to walk both courses before we ride, then do ALL 3 phases within one hour--should be *interesting*! At least my times aren't early!!! )

                            Fingers crossed that Catty goes double clear in both jumping phases (which I'm sure she will), and has a relaxed dressage test

                            Good luck to everyone competing, and we want a full report

                              I'll be there driving my daughter and her pony. Her times are soooo civilized, maybe I can make her stay at Beginner Novice forever so we don't get those early am times ! She has a cute little (actually not so little) buckskin pony, say hi if you see us. She'll be the calm one having a blast, I'll be the one having a nervous breakdown -you would think I would get better at these things !

                                  I'll be there butterflys and all!! This will be our second run at BN ( first time went well at Jenny Camp but way to slow) I'll be on my friends horse - Bryce - I'll be in blue and yellow. Just pulled my times Dresage at 10:08 and stadium at 12:10, XC 12:30. So I can't complain about the times, ground won't be frosty, etc.

                                    Hey everyone,

                                    I was wondering if any of you are braiding. I know its unrecognized and all so most probably aren't but I was thinking I might since I have late times and it wil look pretty in case there's a photographer who gets some good pics (since I dont have any professional pics of my boy yet). So what do you all think? And if I do braid, can I keep them in for all 3 phases ( I read somewhere about taking them out for cross country) - Im new to this whole thing so I want to do things correctly.Thanks in advance!

                                      Well, since Moose really doesn't have much to braid (he literally has NO forelock) he will not be braided.

                                      When I competed a mare that did have enough hair, I would braid her though. I took her braids out for stadium and xc, but I did see some people who left them in. If you do that, I recommend taking out a couple at the end near the withers so you still have something to grab if needed while jumping.

                                      You will see some braided and some not, so either won't stick out.

                                        Thanks pharmgirl! I think I will try to braid and if it comes out looking good ill leave it and if not ill take them out. I am certainly no pro at the braiding thing. Maybe I will see you there since I am doing BNHB. I know I will definitely be able to spot you, I think your boy is a bit hard to miss. Good luck!
