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!

  • Anyone going to the National Preview or the LA National at LAEC?

    I was only going to go for the Preview, but for some reason against logic I decided to go to the LA National also. I must be insane to plan to show at LAEC for two weeks in a row. Of course, my barn friend were NO help in talking me out of it. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img] I feel like I'm addicted to crack and my friends are a bunch of enablers! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]

    So anyway, it would be fun to meet if anyone plans on going....although I was quite unsuccessful in meeting anyone at the last LAEC show, despite wearing my COTH cap!!!

          Thanks Larlanger, I hope the weather changes from today! It was HOT and DRY!!! And I imagine that Burbank was even hotter than where I was. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img] Just keep that cold water coming to the rings, we'll need it if the weather is like today was! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

          Kylie, I am done Saturday so I don't know if I'll stay for the GP!

            LarLanger, since you're here....who is doing the course designs for the AA jumper ring at the Preview and National? It seems Scott Starnes usually does them, but at the last show, they didn't seem like his courses, and they weren't on the paper he usually uses that has his name. They seemed, well, a little dull...not one triple combination, not even in the M&S classic! And never more than one combination. It was a little disappointing.

            What happened to the Pony Express sandwich ladies that were at the Trail's End arena? They are sorely missed. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img] We do not, however, miss the cows that used to live next to that arena. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]

            I should mention that the exhibitor parties had excellent food at the Jumping Festival. The fruit with cut roll sandwiches was fabulous, as was the pancake breakfast w/sausage. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

              If you can tell me the dates of both shows and when the GP is I would love to come down and watch. We 'should' be finishing up harvest soon and now it is time for me to PLAY!! Working from 5am to 10pm doing hard labor really gets you excited for when it is all over, hehe! I have really been meaning to go to some shows and watch the jumpers and meet more BBers so this sounds like a good opportunity.

                The Preview is Nov 7-11, and the LA National is Nov 14-18. The GP is Nov 17 at 7pm. I think Chef was saying that she would be at the LA National, so Chris would be there too I would assume.

                  aww... If I was going to have a trainer in Nov then I would show, but maybe I'll go and hang out down there. Unfortuantly I didn't get to try any food at the exhibitors party because I was still warming up for my Children's classes when they were finishing! (classes a little late maybe?)

                    Yep! I'll be at the National only (2nd show.) I would prefer going to the Preview but I'll actually be in Cincinnati visiting Mr. Chef. He has been gone about 3 months, Its time for me to just sack it up an go.

                    We will all have to meet up at teh show! I have yet to meet Kylie!

                    AAJumper - I am usually concerned about this show always being too cold! But I guess the last time I was showing here was when I did all the nightime medal finals. Brrrrrrrr!

                      Chef, I sure hope it is colder than yesterday! But yes, I remember it being cold in the evenings last year too. I think the temperature was perfect during the day, if I remember correctly. What I distinctly remember was the horrible gnats hanging out in the shade in the Allen arena. Cypress was going nuts! She hates bugs, they make her crazy.

                      Now what's this about Mr.Chef being in Cincinnati for three months??? When is he coming back? I remember you mentioned that you might move there, but I didn't realize he actually went! Okay, I guess I can't complain that Mr.AAJumper worked all 3 days of this weekend (24 hr shifts)!!! 3 days is nothing compared to 3 months!!!

                      Daytimedrama, when is your trainer moving? Did you decided to stay at the current barn for a while? As for the last show, wow...some of those classes went really late! Yikes!

                            Well, DaytimeDrama....the entries do indeed close tomorrow! And unfortunately, there aren't any shows in December, as far as I know.

                              Unfortunately that would be a total of 18 months that Mr. Chef will be in Cincy. I did opt to stay here (weather, job, horse.) He knows he falls in line behind those things. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] I just have yet to actually go visit him there!

                              Thanks findeight...I hope that next spring that I will visit him during a show at the KHP so i can watch - hopefully we can meet. I have a friend who trains with John Roper so I'd love to meet up with her, too.

                                      I am finally going to meet you CHEF!!! WOOOHOOO! I met In The Gate, so I will have no problem finding her, and I found Cypress last time so if you see a REALLY REALLY white girl walking around there, then thats most likely me. I will have my el cheapo camera-o with me, and most likely I will completely ditch my trainer this time and kick it with In The Gate. Peoples, since we are ALL going, we need to make a meeting place at a good time! I am all for it, cuz I am going to be there all day Saturday for the National, no Preview I think. SO lets get this baby going!

                                        Now I know I am really nuts....I ended up changing my mind, and decided not to go to the National, just the Preview. I woke up at 5:30 this morning thinking, "WHY am I going for 2 weeks in a row???" I'd rather spend the money on a nice digital camcorder!!! And I don't want to deal with getting the extra time off work, since my classes go Thurs-Sat.

                                        Anyway, if everyone is going to plan to get together on Saturday of for the GP, I might show up, since my trainer will be down there at the show. Only one person from my barn will be showing though. Is anyone going to be at the Preview?
