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!

  • STEAL OF A DEAL!!! Parlantis!!

    Hi! Sorry! I would close this thread, but I don't know how to! 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!

      OMG I know! I'm debating between the DeNiros and Parlantis right now and I almost want to go with DeNiros just because I'd be a slim calf vs. a large calf in the Parlantis

        Does anyone know how much the Parlanti's drop? If I go to the 39 vs the 38, the height just over 1cm taller than my Ariat Monaco's that dropped a wee bit too much.

          Buy them as tall as you can. Also, I feel the foot runs on the small side.

            Bummer...my De Niro's are even borderline and they are 46.5cm height I think. I'm not even tall! I'm 5'5 with short-average legs! Looks like I'll be getting another pair of De Niro's, since mine have hunt tops and my Monaco's are quickly dying.

              I am 5'1 and I wear a 37 XL+ in parlanti, so the 44cm height, and mine have dropped to be just about perfect-- I'd count on 2cm drop.

              Ironically, I fit the XL Parlantis but Ariat's wide is borderline.

                  Is this the same person who just won't stop pimping her business here? Or is there yet another foreign Parlanti Miami dealer who just joined COTH and thought they'd share?!

                        I spoke with her on the phone and have read many positive reviews. She seemed very pleasant - not the least bit shady! But then again, you never know...

                          You spoke with her on the phone? You called the seller from the US to the UK? Where were these positive reviews?! She has all of 2 visible feedback ratings from eBay sales?!

                          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")...

                          But THAT seller seems to be in "portsmouth, Hampshire, United Kingdom" which, oddly is where pimp-my-business-till-I-drop justriding.com is located.

                          Hampshire
                          PO11 9NA

                          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?!

                            You know what else is the c-r-a-z-i-e-s-t coincidence? Like, "play the lottery" coincidence...

                            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!

                              I'm sorry if I personally offended you! I am new, but that is no reason to go all crazy. I just saw it and thought it was a good deal so I posted it. I had no idea that it could be a scam. And I did speak with her on the phone, she was very nice and seemed perfectly reasonable. I will not be ordering the boots anyway, they aren't tall enough. Really, there is no need to flip out here.

                                You have NO RELATION to the person who posted the eBay ad and runs the website you linked? ORLY???

                                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.

                                  Where are those loads of great reviews you saw?

                                  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?

                                      Really, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to offend anyone - and you can't just make blank accusations. If you must know, I am a teenager on Long Island, and my mother made the call. I didn't mean to start a whole fiasco. I had no idea about this until after I posted this thread. I messaged her on ebay to see if she had any more boots, and that is where I got her website. I am not pimping any businesses. I was just trying to be helpful.

                                        That is honestly nothing more than a coincidence. I had no idea justriding.com existed until after you mentioned it. I am NOT related to them and I don't know how I can prove it to you. I am really sorry.
