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!

  • Laura Kraut's Cedric Sold to Saudi***Only a rumor!***

    For a reported 7 million! Anyone know which Saudi bought him?

    Will Hickstead be next? Or which horses?
    Everytime I fill up my gas tank.
    Well I'm glad the Saudis are getting such great horses.

      The CoTH issue wrote about them having a sponsor that makes the purchases for Saudi Equestrian, which I suppose is the team. From there I guess that it would depend on the fit/need for the choice of rider.

      That is sad news, Cedric was a very special horse for Laura. Remorsefully this is becoming 'a way' of creating the funding that is needed by riders to keep on going with their next mounts. Especially here in the states having to depend upon independent financing.
      Don't let anyone tell you that your ideas or dreams are foolish. There is a millionaire walking around who invented the pool noodle.

          What!!!! Laura said in the chronicle that he would never be sold and will stay with her forever! I guess his owners decided to sell him? I'm shocked and very sad for Laura. She loved the horse. Such a lose for Team USA!!!

            Very sad for Laura and the US team, but a good start on US trade deficit. If it is indeed 7 mil, I imagine the commission should keep her going for a while and provide for potential of horse power expansion by way of quality young horses (Laura's and the owners).

            I foresee the Saudi's as unstoppable by 2016 (where are those games again?) Quick... must... learn... arabic.

              I believe the horse's owner passed away last winter, so, not a huge surprise he was sold if there was a good enough offer on him.

              Laura's had many good horses- hopefully the next one's right around the corner.

                Unfortunately that's the business for any rider who rides a horse for another owner. The owner either sells or wants them back for their own leisure.

                  I feel bad for Laura, the US team and the sport. One of the reasons show jumping was so popular when I was growing up was that horse/rider partnerships tended to stay together longer and people really got to know them. I am a fan of the sport and I still have a hard time keeping up with which rider is on which horse from one season to the next.

                    Peter would have been so happy for all Laura has accomplished with his horse. But times change. He will be well taken care of and most likely raise the love of horse sports with the Saudi's. They are showing a great love of the sport horses, and support of horse sports.

                      The original owners passed, and ownership went to one of their family members. I hope he continues to be successful and agree that Laura will no doubt have or make another special one soon. I liked watching that pair though, they looked like they really enjoyed each other.
                      Please don't try to be a voice of reason. It's way more fun to spin things out of control. #BecauseCOTH - showhorsegallery

                          I have fond memories of them in Beijing. I felt like they were just getting great! He will be missed!

                            Oh, that isn't really true. When Bert was at the team, he shook things up fairly regularly. And owners have moved their horses from one rider to another forever. It is unfortunate, but when you can't afford to own them yourself (like McLain has ownership in Saphire), then you are subject to the owner's whims.

                            And the Saudis' growing interest in the sport can only be good for U.S. and European sales.

                              I'm sad to see him move on from his previous partnership, but I hope his sale will bring him to a new happy, healthy home and do great things for our sport overseas.

                                Totally agree Laurie. When owners stand up, we will be able to keep the horses on our ground. Peter did it. Miss him, bless him.

                                  Awww I was talking to her about her bond with Cedric at WEG. He absolutely loves her. I got a few quick shots of them together, she would walk away and he would be watching where she went.

                                    They had a great partnership and I am sad to read this. I really feel for the riders who have to rely on owners to provide horses for them to ride because they are as others have said at the mercy of those owners. It reminds me of Nicole Simpson who went through the same thing earlier this year.

                                      No, No, NO, again people. To the ones that say its business or whatever Lauriep says.
                                      Anne K is a very special friend of mine and I totally know whats going on, thanks to her. (Who trained LK and knows her very well)
                                      Laura K has/had a very special connection with Cedric. And yes it is sad.
                                      And many times it was not all business back in the day, as unfortunately I was there,(cause that makes me really old) as a kid, I know, lots of owners wanted to have great horses.
