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!

    Since nothing is going on at the grass ring, would it be the perfect meeting place, we most certainly can't miss each other if we are all there?

      My pony should be there for the Preveiw with Scarteen Show Stabbles. And my barn is going for the National, although I can't go. If anyone sees my pony PLEASE let me know, cuz i haven't seen her for awhile, and she is at that barn to be sold. She is a bay large with a blaze and Three stockings and a white tail. I'll attach a pic of her.

          Oh gosh, ponies are sooo cute! I wish I was small.

          I have convinced my hubby to drive down for the GP. Hopefully you all will not mind a non-horsey hubby tagging along(he is still learning so we can all school him, hehe).

          Are we going to meet for an early dinner too? I am so excited to meet all of you!

              But you know my old horse "Chef" because you won the PCHA finals on him. I sold him to Emily. I was happy that you didn't swith horses back for the awards ceremony because Chef loved to win. I am sure he knew he had won it with you!


              Chanda- maybe you'd know this. Was that the same Chef that was at Betsy's for awhile forever ago?

                I must not have been there during that time because I don't remember any Chefs. I don't think this would be the same horse though.

                Is everyone still meeting for the GP? This rain has thrown a wrench in my plans but I would still like to try and go!

                  Doubtful it was the same Chef because I got him at Hap Hansen's and they bought him back east, and before that he had been imported.

                  You mean to tell me that there were 2 people strange enough to name a horse Chef?

                  So I'll try and stay for the GP. I'll be showing earlier in the day so depending what time you make it down, Chanda, you may be able to see us in action.

                  We will be incognito b/c somehow I ended up being the only one a the barn going. So we won't have our drapes up or anything.

                  I am sure I will find you. I am certainly up for dinner. We MUST go to Viva's!!!!

                        Here is the plan:

                        We meet between 4:45 and 5:00 in front of the snack shack between the east ring and large oval. I will be wearing my CoTH cap (ohhh unless I take it to be embroidered.) I will be with Chanda who is easy to spot becase she is taaaalllll and very beautiful - we are talking runway model here, folks.

                        From there, we will trot on over to Viva's for some dinner and maragarita's (virgin ones for you In The Gate [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] )

                        Anyone else care to join? We need to put the VA clique and Mosbys to shame!

                        P.S. I will try to get as many GP tickets in the office as I can.

                          Sounds good! I will probably be meeting Helen (Kylie on COTH) earlier in the day.


                          Where do you get the tickets? Do you have to get them in advance, or can you just walk up and buy them?

                            Well Chanda and I will be there most of the day as well. I really want to watch the Onondarka Finals. I'll be showing in the younger A/A hunters on Jade - so look for us! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                              Chef- Let me know if you need me to get any extra GP tickets... none of my family is going, and I don't even know if I am gonna watch the GP (are we gonna Jamie?) but either way, I can get tix for people. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img] I will be doin the Older Childrens Hunters on Wishful Thinking... hopefully we will be a touch better than last week! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img] Hahaha. And I dont know if it was the same horse Chef... He wasn't at Betsy's as it turns out, Court just told me she used to know him, he wasn't at the barn. Anyways, I will most likely see y'all at National... Chanda- I hear Betsy will be there, we were stabled next to her at Preview.

                                  (Oh god, Hadley! Remind me not to come and visit over there! Hehe)

                                  Why doesn't everyone who is going to meet take my cell phone number. Since I will not be riding or anything I will have it with me all day.
                                  805-717-1985

                                  I will be getting to the show around 11am or so depending on traffic so feel free to call anytime. I will probably just be wandering around looking for Chef! I will also be wearing my COTH cap.

                                  See everyone in front of the snack shack between the East ring and the large oval at 4:45 Saturday the 17th for the GP!

                                    Horse show update:

                                    The pre-green hack (4th class of the day) is scheduled to go at 6:30 [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]

                                    There are 60 pre-green horses!

                                    Jade was all dressed up and had no place to "show." She was cleaned and braided this morning and isn't to be doing her rounds until 4:00. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

                                      Yep, that hack went REALLY late last Thursday! My friend rode her horse in it, and it was pitch black out when she was riding. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img] Patrick is riding her horse in the o/f pre-green classes this week too. His name is Solid Citizen, in case you happen to see him! Good luck to Jade! Will Cris be doing her in the pre-green futurity (or whatever they call it...I don't remember!) on Friday if she qualifies?

                                      Unfortunately, I can't make it to the GP on Saturday. I am going out to visit my friend in Palm Desert. I have to keep in touch to ensure a place to stay during Indio!!!

                                        Too bad you can't make it on Sat. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img] I guess duty calls, since you won't want to be shacking up at the motel 6 with all the truckers like I do! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                                        John F is actually going to ride Jade. With 60 in the division, we need all the politics - I mean - luck we can get! HOPEFULLY she will be a good girl and qualify for the championship.

                                        Isn't there supposed to be a recession or something? Where did all these people come from?

                                        How did it go last week? We haven't gotten our requisite Cypress update! And here I am updating before my horse even gets INTO the ring! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
