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've seen that too. I'm pretty sure it was a Tad Coffin at WIHS which was pretty odd, to me at least.

              If you look in some of the print ads and also watch the DVD "Road to the Maclay" closely when Brianne gets close to the camera she is riding in a Bates. But like I said, that was then, this is now. I have no idea what she is riding in now.

                As for George - I'm with the others; I'm sure he rides in a flat-as-a-pancake old Hermes or something similar.
                Back when she was still riding as a junior I heard a CWD rep say that she rode in their saddles, don't know if that is still the case or not. I doubt she rides in a Bates.

                I would guess GM rides in a Hermes.

                  I can also picture GM in a flat Hermes.

                    At least one of the Maddens students rides in a Bates - Maria Schaub. When I saw those ads I was skeptical, but I've seen her show in them several times.

                      What do you mean "remember"? I still ride in them--one of mine is about 15 years old, and the other is around 7. They have completely spoiled me for those stoooopid couch things that are popular now.

                      And, riding in one in a GM clinic didn't hurt either.

                        I think you mis-saw. I believe that Brianne rode Logan in an Antares.

                          This actually makes a LOT of sense when you think about how much catch-riding she does. She needs a saddle that can fit a wide variety of horses.

                            Yup - Brianne rides in a CWD - NOT a Bates.

                              Brianne has a couple of different saddles! She has been at Spruce Meadows for the last few weeks (with some lovely horses!) and didn't use the same saddle when I saw her switching horses. I'm assuming she uses whatever fits the horse, so that probably explains why many of you are seeing a couple of different ones. - Might I add, I am in LOVE with the paint that she rode in the ATCO double slalom & came close to beating Beezie Maddon & Conquest II on....... I'll take two please (if I win the lottery)!

                                Does George even need a saddle. As old as he is and as long as he has been riding, his butt is the shape of a flat Hermes.

                                  I'm with the others...

                                  It seems to me, Brianne would have multiple saddles. Why would she only ride in one type if she has different horses with different shapes and the funds to accomodate various saddles. Heck, if I had the funds, you better believe I'd have tons of saddles.
                                  Good Judgement comes from Experience. Alot of that comes from Bad Judgement.

                                    I saw that too (courtesy of Bold, not in person, alas) That was a great class. I particularly loved seeing the paint go head to head with Taylor Bland's palomino.

                                    Those young 'uns sure gave Beezie a run for her money, didn't they? On the broadcast Beezie made a cute comment her horse being older than a lot of the competitors.

                                        I believe the paint (if he was little...16hh or so) you are referring to is Mon Gamin, but I could be wrong. Here's the one I'm talking about:
