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!

  • Pinto horse brag thread?!

    I think you are talking about TR's greenie brag... I see other greenie brag threads on here but not her's.

      The big pinto who was jumping? Yeah, he was cute. Where *did* that thread go?

        It's gone? Was that the one TR did on keeping track of her baby from start to finish? That was a great one! Did someone get un-ruley to make it go "poof"?

          All her horses are drool worthy!! Love seeing their progress!!

            I think the Mods decided that TidyRabbit's post was a thinly veiled sales ad, which is the most arbitrary thing I've heard. There are several other "brag threads" of horses who are much more obviously for sale.

            TR posts her threads to follow the progress of her horses and I for one love following her horses through their training.

              Totally agree! Her heese are lovely and it's fun to watch their progressive journeys. She's such a nice rider that I've sure gotten tips by just watching her bring along those lovely animals of hers

                I saw the thread and agree that it was pretty bogus it may have been seen as a sales ad - he's a young horse she's bringing along, and most of her horses are for sale - but she never posts that they are for sale! He is super cute too, sorry people missed him.

                  It's ridiculous... TR posts updates on her horses because she knows how interested in them a lot of people on here are. You would have no clue whether or not that particular horse was for sale off the thread, pics, and video she posted... You would have to go to her webiste to see his ad, and many of us have links in our signatures to our webpages that include a sales page. I know mine does.


                  • #10
                    I too didn't get to watch the real video of him going around! I wouldn't have known he was for sale unless I went to her website. There are normally much more blatant sales horses posted but I don't think this is an instance of that. Or didn't seem like her pushing his sale to me.

                    I am generally very interested in all of the greenie brags out there, regardless of if the horse is for sale. It gives me hope with my guy! As well as ideas and thoughts etc.

                      You looking for this video?

                      TR has some super nice Pintos.

                        My guy Sammy is also by Simpatico and I'm having so much fun with him. He is not for sale not under any circumstances.

                          Thanks guys! I was just curious!

                          If it really did get the boot due to a "sales" ad...thats bogus! nothing even said anything about him being for sale. The video definitely doesnt now that I can see it.

                          Like someone else said- MANY people have links to their barn sites on their sig lines- which pretty much ALL barn sites have SALES pages...sooooo I am not sure why a Moderator would get rid of TR's thread. We all LOVE to see the progress her young ones make- there is NOTHING wrong with a simple brag about his first show! MANY people post those brags. Im not sure how that thread got the boot yet SO many pricing threads make the cut- or even brag threads where the video clearly states "for sale"- TR's does NOT say that!

                          Hopefully the Moderators are reading this to realize getting rid of her thread for a reason that doesnt even pertain to that thread.

                          TR- as always- your boy looks fabulous! He is my favorite of all of yours!

                            Wow. Thanks for sharing the video! He's quite the looker and I hope TR is able to share more about him as he progresses. He looks like he'll go far!

                                I'm stealing this I think it looks nice in my sig with my farm's website link that includes a sales page if you search hard enough.

                                  Hi all, thanks for the kind words!

                                  I think I will make a folder on my webshots page that is just for COTH that doesn't say anything about the horse in particular and perhaps they will let those photos be used?

                                  pds, I'm so glad you're having a great time with Sammy, he's wonderful! Maybe we'll get to see you in Conyers next spring? We could have a pinto party.
