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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

      If you click on the Instagram photos and scroll up to the first post, it explains what happened to the mare. For those that don’t Instagram, it might be better if the OP posted this on Facebook so it is easier to read what happened and contact the owner.

        My horse D'Artagnan was viciously attacked at the Ottawa Horse Show on Tuesday. Please take a look at the information. I really want the person/persons who did this to him held accountable. Any tips would be incredibly appreciated.
        OP I sincerely hope your horse is doing well and that whoever did this is held accountable. I agree with Daventry that it would be a good idea to post this information on Facebook so that folks can share and help spread the word. Include factual details regarding the incident and how folks can submit information (email/phone). You may want to edit your original post here too. I would make a friendly suggestion that you do so without making it sound like it's in the first person (from the horse's mouth). It honestly comes across a bit silly (at least to me, perhaps others feel oppositely) and right now you need people to take you seriously so you can get some credible information. Best wishes to you and your horse and I hope you get the resolution you need.

          I already saw something about this on Facebook, so maybe it is already there, as well as on Instagram. But making it easier to share the information is always a good idea.

          I hope that the person who did this to that horse is caught and receives appropriate punishment, although I realize that my idea of appropriate punishment for such an act is probably not likely to happen.

            Why is the OP so vague? Those of us not on facebook haven't a clue what has happened to the horse.

              Instagram pics show what appears to be injury to horse's shoulder & info posted there suggests "hair removal product" that caused hair to slough off, resulting in a chemical burn.

              Agree with GoneAway the First Person "cute" is not effective in communicating the seriousness of the possible assault.
              I say "possible" as I once scalded the hair off a stifle when I left Palmolive dish soap on the area overnight (done at the suggestion of an equine chiropractor ).
              ​​​​​​​So this might have been the result of Moronic, not Malicious.

                Her horse had a product (hair removal product?) slathered on to its shoulder which caused severe burns.

                This is happened in the stabling at Wesley Clover Parks near Ottawa, Ontario.

                I think most of the Ontario hunter/jumper community has seen the posts on social media by now.

                      I'm sorry. You did not make it clear what had happened to him. Not everyone here uses other social media, so when you post here it is helpful to clear about your issue.

                        Agreed, factual report, rather than cutsie “first person” would be far more effective, and having to scroll through pics is annoying.

                            By asking, you are apparently not keeping the "focus" on "justice for the horse"!

                                  I'm terribly sorry. I really have no idea what the OP is speaking about. I certainly didn't intend a "jab", petty or otherwise.

                                  Some sense of clarity, a clue about what the issue is,doesn't seem to me to be too much to ask for, when someone is asking for help on a public BB.

                                    The owner has likely never used COTH, was told to post on here from someone trying to help in a horrible situation. Not knowing all the intricacies of posting on COTH, she posted the same way she has been posting on social media about it.

                                    Honestly, if this happened to me, I wouldnt spend a month lurking to figure out how to post "properly" on an online forum. She is just trying to get the word out. For the younger generation, these forums are not intuitive.

                                    Not saying you necessarily, but it is sad to see the mocking of her post in a very serious horse welfare issue.

                                      That 's an helpful explanation, thank you. I understand being unfamiliar with the mechanisms of the different types of social media. I didn't intend to mock the OP, I just didn't understand the non-post. You have explained it well.

                                      I hope the horse will be OK. I'm sure it is very upsetting to have a horse injured and the thought that it was intentional would certainly make everything worse.

                                        Have there been any updates posted anywhere? I have not seen anything new about the situation in the last day or two. Honestly, I was very surprised that it would happen anywhere, but especially in Canada.
