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!

  • Barn Fire... If I've ever bought/traded tack/apparel with you, PM me. Need list.

    If I have ever bought or traded tack/apparel with you on here... please PM me.

    We lost everything in a fire, and I am trying to piece together a list for the insurance company.

    All of my files were in a file box in my trailer, and one copy in the barn office area as a result, all of my invoices are gone (let that be a lesson to all....).

    I know that I bought from a few folks on here and/or traded.

    Two leather pads come to mind, but I cannot figure out who they are from.

    Basically, please PM me, I am just asking for folks to email me (will provide you my email) what they sold to me, or traded to me, and I am going to try to use the email as "proof" that I owned stuff to the insurance company.

    Thanks in advance.

    I know we had e-mailed back and forth about buying/selling various items we each owned, but I don't recall if we followed through on that. If you can PM me with your e-mail address I'll search my inbox and see if I can come up with anything.

    My heart goes out to you- best wishes as you rebuild and recover.

                    I lost my beloved gelding in a barn fire five years ago. I know that gut-wrenching pain, and there are tears running down my face just thinking of you. As time passes, however slowly, love eases the aches. You are not alone... please let us know if there is anything we can do for you.

                    Look up into heaven, you'll see them above: the horses we lost, the horses we love.

                      We have never traded, but I am very sorry for your many losses. Biggest hugs!

                          Oh, gosh. I'm so sorry to hear this!

                          I'm almost certain that we haven't traded, but PM me your email addy just to be sure. In the meantime, many (((((hugs))))) and jingles. And is there anything that you need asap? I'll be glad to see what I can send your way.

                            Jen - pm'd you my email.

                            The mare belonged to my best friend, and was the only horse we couldn't get out.

                            The rest of the horses stayed wide-eyed for a few days and are now living out due to not having a barn anymore (which stinks because they are getting fat fat fat, even with grazing muzzles that were donate). No tack to ride in so we are trying to make a dry lot somewhere to stick my fatty mcfatty in (and I am talking about the horse, not myself, though a dry lot would help me also).

                              Still looking for the leather pad person... traded or bought two of them from her... but don't have the record in my PMs.

                                Naters that might have been me. I know that you tried a Tad Coffin Saddle I had for sale and it had a couple of pads with it. I honestly can't remember if I sold them to you without the saddle or not? I will look in the inventory list and see if I can figure it out for you. I remember that you sent the saddle back to me in a hitchalong ride in a horse trailer, that was you right?

                                  That was me!! Yay!

                                  I don't know if I bought the pads or if the owner of the saddle didn't want to sell those separately as you mentioned.

                                  Thank you for checking! It would have been a medium thick pad, and the thick pad with wither cut out.

                                      Sorry forgot to look.....I show that they were RTO's (returned to owner), so it wasn't me that you got them from after all. If there is any way I can help though, let me know.
