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!

    • finally getting to watch all the on demand content..... I LOVE Deb Bennett!
      Me: In a long-winded explanation of who GM is and why he is Important to the Sport
      Mr EmJ: So what you're saying is GM is so Important he could get Chik-Fil-A on Sunday?

      • I love Deb Bennett too. I don't remember ever having anyone "grow on me" so much during her lecture!
        Rest in peace Claudius, we will miss you.

        Comment


        • For some reason, Dr. Bennett put me off with her delivery... Couldn't get past ten minutes. I'm sure she had some gems of wisdom - for those that really liked her, could you give a brief summary?

          Comment


          • Re Deb Bennett, I knew that would happen in this day and age. Be patient and not rushed, and just give her a try. Don't have any Cliff Note's for you, but I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent listening to her lectures and learned a lot. I love how she loves what she does, and loved her explanation of why she stopped giving conformation lectures. That little speech in itself was worth the time I spent.
            Rest in peace Claudius, we will miss you.

            • Re: Deb Bennet ... well, I have read her stuff before, but this is the first time I've seen her do a lecture.

              I don't think the Cliff Notes version can be done well with her.

              She seems to be a mad scientist and is well worth suffering through the first part which is a bit slow. But, if you are patient she is very funny .... like Monty Python sort of funny.

              She knows her stuff.

              • Everyone here has the flu except me - so not much free time as I pick up extra chores. Once I inevitably succumb to this flu, I will patiently watch Dr. Bennett! I admit, I have never done well with lectures and am much better at staying tuned in if there is a live horse as in Dr. Ober's segment.

                  Too bad they can't set up some derby or xc type fences that are solid. You learn to like the deep distance pretty quick out of fear for your life

                  Love GM. Love Ann K too, they really do epitomise the American style of riding.

                  • Anybody having trouble with the sound on the on demand video? It's ok on my one computer but really low on my iPad and my bf's computer.

                    Comment


                    • I am watching all of the videos sequentially - just got done with the 2nd Deb Bennett one. The first one had me intrigued. The second one is a bit out there and way too touchy/feely for me. Maybe it's the vernacular she uses that puts me off- "birdie and thread". I am a little surprised that George has jumped on her bandwagon. I'll be curious to see what the last installment holds.

                        I asked around a bit and found that I'm not the only one to find her a bit obnoxious. Heard she likes to "take over" at other clinician sessions. Agree that she just does not seem like the kind that George Morris would so enthusiastically endorse...

                          I think the sound was generally not great with the video in the first place... my laptop has terrible speakers, but I plugged in my little pair of auxiliary speakers and turned them up all the way and still couldn't eat chips and hear what George was saying at the same time.

                          Or as he put it during one of the morning sessions, "LIZ-zie, this mic is cheap, it's no good, something will need to be done about this, LIZ-zie..."

                              I just get black

                              • The video worked on my iPad but the sound was terrible. I would have needed speakers or headphones.

                                • I just figured out to download an app to play flash videos. I chose Photon Flash Video Player and it works perfectly.

                                  • I'm only just getting around to watching this on demand, and have a question for anyone who's been watching.

                                    Most of the riders are using a black half pad of some kind under their saddles. Does anyone know what these are?
