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!

      I love those pictures! I love the rider's hands and the steady legs. I love the traditional look in Madeline's - that's the sport I aspired to when I started riding in '67. Where'd it go? I think Dakota may have found it, with a different "habit".

      Pixie - how lucky were you to have that one in your life?!

      Facebook photos still unviewable for us unsocial site users.
      huh ? what do you mean?

          Facebook links CAN work.

          It's user error.

          Right click, select "view image in a new window."
          Copy & paste THAT link.
          It will always be public regardless of the privacy settings of the album.

                Sorry, thought my FB pics would work, since I changed my privacy settings.

                I moved them to photobucket.

                One of my favorites from when I was a kid on my pony -

                My jumper leaping over the "ghost jump" (i.e. water puddle in the ring)

                Out playing on the XC field with my jumper -

                and the landing...

                on a sale pony in the jumpers -

                My young jumper from his 3rd show -

                On another of my sale horses -

                    Redo from facebook links.

                    On a misty morning...

                    Free jumping at her inspection (proud mama moment)

                    In the warm up ring

                    And cause she's making a purdy face here..

                      This is my new favorite pic- from Thermal this year in the 1.10 jumpers. For some reason, the only pictures that came out well at that height at Thermal are, ahem, rear shots. Oh well.

                        This is my favorite picture of my TB gelding Double O'Slevin (Dawn). He finished last year doing the 1.10 jumpers (this was in Estes Park CO) and we've schooled 4' quite a few times He's only been showing about 3 years now.

                        This is my favorite of my TB mare Smooth Irish Whiskey (Fiona) She's pretty well capped at 3'6" but almost always clean. And NOT a "typical" red mare...she packs kids around

                          Well it's definitely not as big and impressive as some of the rest of you, but this is my mare and I last summer where it was the first time for both of us schooling XC:
                          She was such a star that day!

                            Well this first one isn't a jumping photo, but it's my fav that's ever been taken of me on a horse! This was at a carnival-type celebration (feria, in Spanish) in a small town (Todos Santos Cuchamatanes, Huehuetenango) in Guatemala that celebrates their patron saint over All Saints Day with a crazy drunken horse race...that I participated in.

                            This was All Saints Day 2010, and the first year that a woman (me!) ever participated in the race. Hands down, best. time. of. my. life.


                            I also ended up making the back page of the 2nd biggest paper in the country...here's that.


                            This one is my favorite jumping picture. Probably 4-5 years ago, this fella is still going strong at 20. Came off the track God knows how many years ago. He is the ultimate babysitter for lower level jumpers and I adore him.

                              I have a soft spot in my heart for your Dawn horse. He's unconventional over the fences the same way that my OTTB, my Billy horse, was over little fences (why pull your knees to your eyeballs when the fences are so stinkin easy for you? ). I look forward to seeing your pictures over the bigger fences as you move through this year and into next

                                  He's such a cutie! I wanted to post one of Aero and I, but I look terrible in all of those (chicken wing arms like no other and my FACES, goodnes!). He, of course, looks awesome, always.

                                        Whoop, your links don't work......a few other folks' links don't work either.

                                        What you have to do is go to the picture and at the bottom of the screen there is a link in tiny letters that says 'share this photo with anyone with this public link' or something. Copy and paste THAT to your post

                                        Also, with the new settings, you get that black popup window for photos...once there, just hit the refresh button and it'll take you back to the original layout where that link is.
