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!

      If I remember correctly, Gator, or The Navigator was a bay. I'ts been a while though. CF did find Gator for Janet to buy, but I'm not sure of any previous connection. I do know that he had been around the CD for a long time before Janet owned him.

        Gator was black, I thought, and I thought - I could be wrong - that he was at SRF for a long time. So finding him was just a matter of calling BG, I think.

            I think I remember a horse named The Navigator...the one I'm thinking of was bay with a white stripe on his face...I'm pretty sure he was with BG when I knew him...but, of course, I could absolutely be thinking of the wrong horse. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

              The Navagator (Gator) was a dark bay with white on his face..he was really really a crooked horse and moved like a...sewing machine..BUT he had a heart of GOLD and was a great horse who gave his best 110% of the time. Sarah ??? (Help!!) owned him at SRF, tjhen when she went to school another Sara bought him (an adult) and then I guess he went to SCS...

              I DO remember Holly too! Everyone would just die to ride Mountaineer....there was a girl named something(Debbie??) Albright that rode him alot in our lesson..she had a long long braid down her back...then there was Downing Street, Cloudy Afternoon....wow..so many blasts from the past!

                Sara Ten Eyck (or something like that)

                We used to take lessons together - her on Gator, me on Cooper. Dear God, Gator did indeed have a heart of gold (as did Cooper).

                          You know what everyone!! I think you should stop and look at what you are writing about the CDHJC, because you were once in it yourseleves. Right now it is just in a between period, there are going to be a lot of amazing riders really soon. You are just older peep who move on, this is called a younger generation that you don't seem to watch. But there are many good trainers, but some people think there aren't. But it isn't really nice to say how poor all the trainers are because people get hurt and are offend by your rude remarks. I train with a fabulous stable, and my friend Jill does as well. I learn a ton at Skiddy training w/CF. You need to get pass the diappointments you had and actually encourage positive notes to the new comers in the Capital District, not say how horrible it is, that is what will discourage people and make them feel bad about themselves who read the boards. Lots of A shows are expensive for some people out there, but lots of people love to ride in local shows for the excitement and learning. Actually I enjoy where I am and I think giving a Novice hunter award is a great way to boost some child/adult self-esteem.
                          By the way the CDHJC does have jumper shows!

                            Oh my gosh, the memories. Wasn't it June Ten Eyck (however the heck you spell that) that had him? Obviously the same family...were there two daughters or was Sara the mother?

                            I would love to hear about what happened to all the people I used to ride with/compete against...this is fun! Do you think we can compete with the Californians in terms of reminiscing?

                              I never said the CDHJC was horrible, and I don't think anyones else has either. There are a very few trainers there that know what they are doing--yours is one of them. We (those of us who are disenchanted with the system there) just see too many people being "taken" by people who call themselves "trainers". The "system" also has flaws (as does any), but some "trainers" with leverage keep the whole "system" down. That's all...

                                  Ok.. well the way you talked about the CDHJC and some others, made it seem like a whole worthless opportunity to get experienced. But besides that I dotn' think you should write any negative notes on boards because people (trainers and there students) could be looking at the remarks and be hurt by them. That wouldn't be very approiate to say.

                                    Tigg there should be a beginner award ...for BEGINNERS..like short stirrup ..but for the "novice" that is a perpetual novice rider (one in particular three or four YEARS in a row) is rediculous. Novice by definition is never to have won three blue ribbons at a recognized competition..three wins..OUT...fivethousandmillion seconds and fourths= CHAMPION! that's somethiing to be proud of!

                                      I still like the Novice Hunter Idea. I did it for a year and a half!!! The blue ribbon thing goes for the eq. only so u can win as many as u want in the hunters and still be okay for it. Also...the horse that has won that award the past two years has had numerous champions and reserves(not a few ribbons as u expalin it)and many points by the end of the year. And no this horse didn't get all his points from backyard shows, he was champion and reserve champion at St.Clements

                                        Whatever..anyone who shows in Novice after they win 3 classes is cheating themselves and the others who are really novices and should be getting the ribbons. Do what you want but I think it is wrong. A perpetual novice is nothing to be proud of champion or not...ps there were 3 people in the novice at St Clements last year...that's a tough one to win.

                                          Oh and you really should read the rule book..novice applies to all divisions not just eq...I didn't just fall off the turnip truck I have been doing this for a while.
