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!

    Granted, that post started with "rumor has it" and I'm sure you haven't had a chance to confirm it, so I'll try not to get carried away, but that's what I was wondering would happen with Aiken. Now, perhaps I'm not following you, but are you sure they didn't stop by the PSJ Highfields, instead of whichever event was in the area? I've noticed people have mentioned the fear of it spreading around Zone 2, but how many people swing into the March Madness shows in Aiken on their way home? I honestly don't know, as I'm not a snowbirder. Can someone weigh in on that?

      So thankful for the responsible barn owners.

          Right?! Good on them! I'm sure they already had cash out there for putting on a show, too. Massive kudos.

          • We arrived there the 18th, showed the wed, thurs with one horse in the first years and ticketed with the other, found out that Friday am at 9:38am a phone call from our trainer.

            I was still at hotel sleeping in getting ready to show in the Adults, soooo excited.

            Made the decision after calling our vet to pack up and leave, we potentially exposed for 3 days.

            Next called our groom said pack up we are leaving.

            Next call to trainer at home to pick up my 3 horses at my farm, told her about our situation. So we could arrive at an empty barn.

            Next called our neighbor to let her know and to call her vet and get any instructions we may need being next door.

            Next spoke to show vet to make sure we were not risking others and if our health cert was valid, all good.

            Checked out and drove home.

            We are self quarantine and are following bio-security measures until its been 21 days.

            I posted a very good article eveybody who is intested in this virus should read.

            Take the emotions and $$ out of the equation and we can all rest alittle easier that we are doing the right thing.

                        This is scary. Horses from my barn are in Aiken now and are coming back the end of next week.

                        • If anyone cares to dredge up the threads from last year's outbreak at Thermal, there were little to no consequences for the lack of quarantine. I don't know if the circumstances are exactly comparable, but there was no massive spread of disease from that show. We had horses come back from that show and our BM and vets were not concerned. The biggest impact was financial, as far as shows canceling or limping along with very low numbers. In other words, the sky didn't fall except on show organizers.

                              Is the barn quarantined because of a sick horse or as a precautionary measure?

                                Here is the link for the Thermal thread:
                                http://www.chronofhorse.com/forum/sh...-Thermal-EHV-1

                                At this point I have zero faith in HITS management to do what they are able to safeguard horses at their shows. Enough so that I wouldn't show there. Not that it's super-likely at this point anyway, so I'm not exactly making them lose revenue. But enough that I'm having second thoughts about my field trip out to Thermal because I'm just that annoyed..

                                  nEHV-1 has surfaced in Quebec. The horse was already euthanized.

                                  • Is anyone else's vet recommending vaccinating for EHV-1. He says it may help by reving up the horses immune system, but it has no labeled effect for the mutant strain. He say we will probably have horses returning from HITS to our area soon.

                                    • My vet recommended against it. Said it doesn't help with the neuro kind and vaccines of any kind can stress the horse.

                                      • Granted, the authorities need to communicate better. However, any post that starts out " rumor has it" is not helpful.

                                        This situation is bad enough and rumors have a way of evolving, and start getting stated as fact, adding even more confusion.

Of course I want my boy home and the cost to keep him on day care for that time of his vacation will be considerable, but its the right thing to do.
