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!

      A domain search indicates that horseycatherines.com was registered on 28-feb-13 under an anonymous service available through shopify.com.

      Don't know how many reviews they could have since they've only been in business a month.

      That Gregg James fellow was banned from here for sharing an IP address with the owner of justriding.com-- so weird that he is cheating on his roommate's business buying animo from other sellers!

      Also, ere are at least 3 sites with the same look and feel all claiming to be the largest and/or exclusive animo dealer in the UK. So they're either all the same or somebody's lying.

        No WAY someone associated with THIS business is LYING. That's just... it strains belief that such an UPSTANDING business would do anything shady at all.

            I have to say buying parlantis is going to be one of those life experiences that will probably come back to haunt me on this board for years to come...

              Seriously, I feel like this lady's craziness is starting to make PARLANTI look bad. Maybe someone should tell Parlanti that one of their dealers is BIGTIME CRAZYTOWN?

                We can't provide any further insight into the site that the OP referenced here, but we can tell you that the original poster's IP address doesn't overlap with any of the JustRiding crew's and her email address does match up with that of a US teenager who has posted videos, etc. about her riding and horses online, just like she's mentioned.

                So, based on past experience, the coincidences between these sellers may be a sign that they're related, or not, but there DOES NOT appear to be anything shady with the OP, or an overt connection to these people, so let's cut her some slack.

                Thanks!

                    Sofi, regardless-- if you're thinking about buying, please be forewarned that this website has a lot of similarities to one whose reps haven't behaved very well and it is a brand new site. Caveat Emptor, so to speak.

                    For the record, I DID get my boots, so they did deliver-- just didn't behave very well in the process.

                      I don't know if you're a lawyer in real life, but I suffered the (apparently) mistaken illusion that the American Justice system operated on the premise of innocent until proven guilty rather than the converse ...
                      You come across as more than a little hostile and absolutely owe SofiPony a very generous apology.

                      I especially don't understand the level of your hostility as you've never even mentioned that you had any personal dealings with the apparently nefarious company

                      Maybe this is just a WHOPPER of a coincidence, and I am sure SofiPony you'd have NO IDEA since you're clearly BRAND NEW to the formus. Like, brand spanking new as of the date of this thread (though somehow familiar with the lingo we use around here like "steal of a deal")...

                      <snip>

                      So, let's pretend just for kicks that you're not some random unaffiliated new person who stumbled on COTH, decided to start your experience here off by promoting a tack shop... are you...

                      -the owner of justriding.com
                      -the military husband of a client
                      -an employee of the company
                      -a trainer "friend" of the owner with a facebook page pimping the company

                      OR JUST A REGULAR OLD HOUSEGUEST?!

                      One of the "supporters" of Justriding.com was a guy named Gregory James who bought his wife a jumper from the owner of justriding. Post 22, post 58

                      http://www.chronofhorse.com/forum/sh...ght=justriding

                      What a LUCKY LADY SHE IS. Because I notice he ALSO bought his wife a jumper from the owner of horseycatherines.com!!! Just click on reviews on the side tab and you'll see he posted <<Thanks Again for my Jumper, My wife absolutely loved it. :-)>> as a review on horseycatherine.com

                      This is some kind of bizarre psychic coincidence and nothing more I am sure!

                      It's also really weird that in a prior post you use the term "thumps" which I have ONLY ever heard British people use... but you're in the US not the UK.

                      Do you often make cross-country calls when you're thinking about boots you ultimately don't order from sellers with awesome reviews only they're secret non public reviews and you stalk not only those seller's eBay listings but also their websites which are listed under totally different names. Your phone bill must be OUCH.

                      In other news, and I am sure this will offend NO ONE since the OP is totally unbiased and unaffiliated... but Justriding/HorseyCatherines has to be the SHADIEST BUSINESS EVER. And gets the award for "Not even two brain cells to rub together" for coming on here, what 5, 6, 7 times to pimp their business. How many times can you get slapped and show your @ss before you learn a lesson?

I found a good deal on parlantis on ebay for $485, but I have no relation at all whatsoever to the seller, or the other person that has been supposedly "pimping her business" here. I'm sorry if I may have angered anyone. I posted this before I knew anything about the other person selling parlanti miamis. I just thought it was a good deal, and nothing more. Sooo... you can completely disregard this thread. Thank you and sorry!

                        I'm sorry that you were the subject of such malevolence

                        I hope you'll stick around to meet the non-belligerent posters that also abound on this forum

                            Didn't realize this was a judicial forum?! Or a criminal law case?!
                            I am super super tired of the spam advertising all over the board and people who are something other than they say they are. It seems to be overruning the forums lately and I find it completely irritating. If Sofipony is indeed some neutral bystander I'd like her to post all those reviews she found about this site. I remain skeptical. But if she is who she says she is-- why should she care?!

                              I get hugely irritated when posters can't play by the rules. I sell on eBay and I'd love to pimp my auctions left right and center on the boards but that's prohibited so I don't. If I have to follow the rule everyone should have to. Justriding (in its various forms) has broken the rules time and time again. It's grating.

                                I have no dog in this fight, aside from having ordered something from JustRiding.com prior to the COTH debacle involving them (which has been a smooth process thus far...when/if I get my item remains to be seen). I also am not sure what seller the OP originally posted, but if it's the same seller that's listing these very cheap Parlantis on ebay:

                                http://www.ebay.ca/itm/SALE-Parlanti...ht_2020wt_1040

                                ...then there is a lot of positive feedback for the person, which you can find here:

                                http://feedback.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI...k&myworld=true

                                I don't mean to offend anyone, but just wanted to show that it is possible that the OP isn't in fact tied to JustRiding and may have just read these reviews. That's all.

                                PS - If that's not the same seller, disregard this post entirely.

                                  The OP deleted her link from the first post. That wasn't the seller she originally linked to. Though it may be yet another variation of justriding.

                                    Your behavior was borderline bullying. You can always report a post/user to the mods. No need to verbally assault them.

                                      For what it's worth, I checked the feedback on the ebay parlantis-- and the only feedback as a seller was for an iphone. Now they have ebay feedback for a pair of animo breeches, but it's generally good practice not to buy from a retailer whose only feedback is as a buyer, especially of what looks like random items.

                                        Do you have the username of the original eBay seller?
