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!

    Several options:
    1. List on ebay. Basic listings are free and will only cost you a small fee based on sales price and PayPal fees if purchased through them.
    2. List on Craigslist.
    3. List on Freecycle.
    4. Donate to your local Pony Club, therapeutic riding center, riding school, summer camp with riding program, etc. They will often cut out photos to use in art projects or have for parents to read while the kids are riding.
    5. Donate to your local Friends of the Library. Many take old periodicals and sell them.
    6. List on a horse-related forum, like you did.
    7. Bring with other items to a tack swap.
    8. Email the magazine and ask if they need any back issues. Sometimes they are missing older issues or only have one copy that is in bad shape.

      If you end up deciding to sell, take the ones that don't sell and donate them to your local riding club, camp, 4-H group, pony club, etc. They are great resources for the kids and clubs for all sorts of fun

        I have two copies of the one with me in Jumping clinic and I think three copies of the one with me in the article about Greg Best. I'm hoping I don't regret not having more at some point...but I already feel a bit excessive.

        I'm sure you have someone looking out for your picture? With the Greg Best article, I had friends tell me I was in it before I ever received my magazine. 'Course my name was in the caption...so that helped, I'm sure.

        I sure wish PH would do as someone suggested and make each year available on searchable disc. I would totally be into that. I have each copy going back for years and I too never look at them. Not because I don't think some of the articles aren't useful (for a while there, they were Blah! but it's gotten better again) but because it would be too difficult to actually find what I was looking for. It's easily worth $50 to me.

              *Raises hand* Me, too - I've got SCADS of them, even some from the 70s! I don't know why I have such a hard time parting with them... they bring back happy memories, I guess. And almost always, if I pick an old one up, I find something interesting and/or of value. Eventually I will have to do something with all of my old horse magazines but for now the pile continues to grow... I appreciate the suggestions in this thread.

              PS. Never have had a photo published but did get in the first response to a question they ran in PH a few months ago - that was pretty cool!

                Yes, haha! My parents have it framed at their house but I don't have any copies and since I'm getting married this spring, won't be living with them when I move back from Minnesota... I want to frame the cover and have it in my place! Not weird, right?

                  Not weird at all. If I was on the cover (and had an article written about me) I'd have it framed and hanging in my house as well.

                    I don't. Hence making an occasional effort to get hands on the magazine.

                    Supershorty- if you don't have your magazine cover framed on your living room wall there's something wrong with you. That is so cool.

                                Also try local hospitals and veterans hospitals. I know during my stays the folks that have brought me a stack of old PH and COTH magazines have made my day since I am not a subscriber. When we were done with some books and magazines we took them to the local veteran's hospital and they were thrilled to have the reading material for waiting rooms and for lending to inpatients.

                                    The really old ones, from the 1970s and 1980s, are fantastic. The articles were much more in-depth than what the magazine serves up today. I have especially enjoyed picking them up and getting (for example) a reminder of young David O'Connor's first trip to england and what it was like for him to do that as a struggling young rider.

                                    They also did a really fantastic "Build-a-Horse" feature for a year, where they had cartoons of people unrolling tendons and the like into place, with all kinds of "assembly instructions" about how improper attachments could result in this problem or that problem. It was terrific and engaging and I've been meaning to dig it up to give out to my 4-H kids.

                                    I think it would be terrific to have them available in a digital format.

                                          Maybe some day we will be able to get the magazine in a digital, downloadable and savable version. I am ever hopeful (says she as she continues to toss old copies due to lack of space).
