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!

    The Riding Habit has a FB page. There is a mention of losing their website recently, but it's back up. There is also a mention that they were at Pin Oak.

    You might try contacting them there.

    Good luck.
    And nothing bad happened!

      You were not even our customer, but acted like you were. My customer, of course has her Boots and loves them. That is not because of your pitiful actions.

      I am insulted that you have bad mouthed my business and including making untrue statements about being for sale and my phone not being correct. you also stated that you could not reach us even by website or e-mail. All lies. No one has ever had a problem getting to us and at any time of the day or night. Celine contacted us.

      I have a 40 years of an undisputed reputation for being a very compassionate person. delivering the best service to all my customers, quality goods, and services is a statement we live by. I have even helped people who have purchased, with much dissatisfaction, purchases from other shops who would not help them or back up their products.

      My customer, should have told you she has her boots. Why did you not ask her ? Instead you chose to accuse me. I had a situation with her thinking that she would get her boots in 6 weeks. I never told her that because I know boots will never come before 11-13 weeks. This is international business and one has much time spent in going through customs and the shipping agents. Maybe you and she should look at what you say before you condemn another making it sound like your the customer. WAS THIS TO to attract people to your website! Working on your credit card for a return?? Come on you bold face liar.

      I want to see, on The Chronicle of the Horse, offer an apology. Be sure I get a copy. If not, I will write a very good report about how you have defamed my name and my lawyer will also be interested in this.

      No one should have the right to say untruths about another person or business. You blogged and bad mouth and I cannot believe my customer would have allowed you to do that, especially for no reason.
      On top of this, her boots where a free gift from me. Did she tell you that too? Your a bad person! Do not ignore this.

          Wow, really? So professional. The OP was simply wondering what the status was on something she ordered. There's no harm in that.

          But... your outrageous response definitely ensures that I'd never want to buy something from you guys.

            Note to self: Do not use The Riding Habit.

            Note to The Riding Habit: The above note to self is not because of anything Dallas said here. It's based solely on what YOU wrote in response.

              I sense they know each other and had a dispute or something. That's my opinion.

                  To the Riding Habit:

                  You do not sound like a compassionate professional to me! Based on your rant here, I would not want to do business with you and I won't. This kind of nastiness will not win you any friends or business, imho

                    The Riding Habit did herself no favors by dragging this short thread back up nearly three months later.

                    I'm guessing that must be how long it took the missing order to show up?

                      For "The Riding Habit" -
                      check yourself before posting on this board,
                      Your post DOES NOT put you or your company in a good light.

                        Sorry for any rashness/rudeness that readers may see in the response by The Riding Habit. The blog in June communicates that The Riding Habit cannot be trusted or traced and took money from a customer without delivery of a product and the customer is going to despite on the credit card charge. Well we all are taught that the customer is always right, but to the point A. She was not the customer. B. Disputing on a charge, when there wasn't any charge. We are hoping the blogger clears up this comedy as it reflects disparagement to The Riding Habit name. We fight hard for customers as customers will tell you. We must also defend ourselves. Those few remarks in June, probably should have just been ignored, but they hurt, and we didn't turn the other cheek.

                          Um, I think your post that you have since deleted, but fortunately someone quoted your unprofessional rant in its entirety, speaks more about your company than any customer ever could. I wonder if Pin Oak will still be supporting such a vendor after reading this?

                            Okay, first of all: this is not a "blog." It's an Internet forum where people come to ask questions and share opinions. The OP said nothing in her first post that was damning, inflammatory or lawsuit worthy. She was asking for contact information to inquire about an order. Whether it was her order or not, who cares?

                            (Knowing who the OP rides with, I assume it was her trainer's order, so I don't even see the issue with her inquiring on behalf of her trainer.)

                                  And remember.. everything you post on the internet and then delete is never actually gone... a perfect example with the person who quoted your entire rant.

                                    Interesting business tactic. Boldly and publicly paint one's self as an immature, unprofessional, litigation-prone ranter without a right vs. wrong filter or firm grasp on proper grammar.

                                    Awesome move.

                                      Drama and attitude like that does not attract customers. I go to Pin Oak every year with a large barn and we will probably go to one of the other vendors next time we're there.
