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!

    This is the husband and father of two well known riders. He only been riding for a few years and his work schedule does not allow him to practice too much. His horse is perfect and has won a lot. This was Easter Sunday and he asked the judge's permission to celebrate by wearing his pink jacket with lime green lining. It was a wonderful, festive way to celebrate Easter and the end of circuit. He rode great and everyone who was there loved the outfit!! Kudos to him for making everyone smile that day and Congrats to him on a job well done!!!

        Now for me personally I like a more bubble gum pink. My husband has yet to find me a gun with the correct shade of pink. If hunt coats were one day not traditional colors and people started going for fun ones I would totally rock a bubble gum pink jacket. I admit that I like that black hunt coat with the pink piping that that crazy British chick designed...Katie...Price? but would never wear it unless tradition changed or something fun like what this guy is doing. Where do you suppose he found it? Custom made?

        Those were really 2'6"???

          I HATE the jacket!!!! if it was for Breast Cancer Awareness, I'd be marginally more accepting, but not for Easter. I hate, hate, hate it.....

            Leave him alone...the rider (a DAD) asked the judge's permission and rode beautifully, yes beautifully because he let his absolutely gorgeous horse do his/her job perfectly. My goodness people...lighten up. This DAD did and he still placed!!!!

              I'm with you... We H/J riders are so critical- sometimes we need to just enjoy watching another rider having fun with their horse, equitation is important but it does not supersede enjoyment of the sport! I love the jacket and kudos to him for wearing it and not having to come to COTH to ask if it's on trend for this year he did a great job

                My first thought for his round was that he was a cross over from another discipline like barrel racing or something where you urge a horse on with your hands. His seat looked so soft and natural that I assumed he was somewhat new over fences but not on horseback in general.

                Lovely horse and they make a good team.

                  Really! The Dad bit is irrelevant, but the guy is obviously having fun, the horse is obviously having fun, no one is getting hurt. Everyone is happy...if you don't like the jacket, don't wear one like it.

                  There are people who are irreverant and have a sense of humor...learn to live with them, they'll make your live more tolerable .

                    I loved the jacket, not only perfect for breast cancer awareness but for Florida.

                    We should all be so lucky to ride as older adults and have the joy of competing on a great horse.

                      I was a little surprised by the coat, but I actually think it looks kind of nice on a grey.
                      Heck, I've been riding 30+ years and STILL don't ride perfectly. I think the rider is doing a fine job on a nice horse! And he is rockin' the jacket!

                        This made me smile!

                        I loved it all - the jacket, the horse (to die for!), and the rider, who I thought did a great job letting his horse do his thing. This is what it is supposed to be about for amateurs - getting out there and having a good time! And, if you can have a little style while doing it, then why not?

                            Just curious, is there anyone left on Planet Earth now who is not "aware," as in continuously scared sh*tless, of BC? My mom and sister-in-law have both had it, and if there is ONE THING we'd like to be able to forget about (gee, 15 minutes would be enough!) it would be the Sword of Damocles hanging over all our heads.

                            Please forgive my rant, but I am SOOOOOOO tired of being reminded of "morbidity and mortality" every time I pick up a show program, a tack catalog, a can of peas, or even walk past a trash can in the train station. Just . . . ENUFF!

                            NO ONE, especially those who've dealt with it, want to have to think about it all the time. NO ONE. It's like a continual mental beating. Rant over.

                              I understand your frustration Lady Ebshi, but this campaign has really made a LOT of money to help with the cure. It's a trade off. We all are aware, but that slogan is what helps them get donations so less people have to suffer.

                                    Yep, hate to be the pigeon that craps on the Pink Parade, but there are some things people need to know before thinking this is all Dr. Feelgood "for a good cause." Read this site thoroughly; Breast Cancer Action lifts up a lot of the rocks and gives it to you straight:

                                    http://thinkbeforeyoupink.org/?page_id=13

                                    If most/some/ANY of the money was going toward research into WHERE this disease is coming from and exploring meaningful PREVENTION, I would be right there pinked out beyond belief too. The trouble is, they're not. It's all about "The Cure," aka "treatment" and the trouble with that is, there AIN'T no stinkin' "cure." It's STILL slash, poison and burn and even if you survive THAT and it doesn't come back, you WILL have significant disabilities for life that they will NOT inform you of fully going in. Because they honestly don't know what it may do to any individual. You find this out, of course, AFTER the fact. Nor can they tell you with anything other than a handicapper's crapshoot if all that "cure" DID anything at all. But it sure does pay well, hence all those new "Cancer Centers" named after the recently deceased!

                                    There are some important theories about what is driving this disease process and they are carefully NOT being explored by the BC community which makes tons, I mean BOATLOADS, of money off of your and my FEAR. Including the fine ladies of Susan G. Komen who are not only right-wingnuts (you remember Planned Parenthood last year?) but ALSO privately own a major chain of mammography clinics. FASCINATING to peer inside this icky little world.

                                    Be afraid--be VERY afraid. But don't believe the marketing, decide for yourself what if anything you need to "do" about it, and be very careful which happy-horsesh*t "charity" you give your dollars to.

                                    Do not assume altruism where there is money to be made. EVER.

                                      Look, if when it comes to finding a cure, there are many things at stake here. First of all, there isn't much money to be made my big pharma with curing as there is with maintaining. Second, while I agree a lot of these organization could use their finances better, there is one HUGE thing that Komen does provide - screenings for women who would otherwise not be able to afford them. A cure does no good if there is no awareness and people can't be aware. It would be great if big pharma would focus on a cure, but for now we are stuck with prevention and catching it early.
                                      I am speaking from experience as a close friend just found her BC is back. Two years ago she was diagnosed with a very agressive form, and now it is stage 4 and spread to her bones. She is 28!
                                      If my doing the ride for cure "donates" a mamogram to a woman who could not otherwise afford it, I am more that willing to do it.

                                          Sorry , I'm not buying this. Not everyone who undergoes breast cancer treatment ends up with significant disabilities for life because of the treatment. And if you or your family members are seeing doctors who don't give you detailed information on risks and prognosis BEFORE treatment takes place, your entire family needs to find new doctors.

                                          Big Pharma isn't jumping on a cure because academia hasn't yet come up with one that makes sense to jump on. Or maybe potential cures are being discovered every day, but the projects don't make it past the very early stages of development (that no one ever hears about) due to lack of safety or effectiveness upon further investigation (it happens every day in the life of Big Pharma, at a huge cost). It costs a TON of money and then some to take a drug from early development to market. If you want to blame someone for lack of cure, blame the NIH for cutting grants to university researchers. That's where most of this stuff has to start.

                                          And don't be so sure that "there isn't much money to be made my [sic] big pharma with curing as there is with maintaining". Have you ever heard of vaccines? Those don't maintain OR cure; they PREVENT DISEASE ALTOGETHER.
