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!

        Holy cow..I hadn't heard that allegation but it wouldn't surprise me ....It is THE PITS here..all the shows that were any good do not exist anymore, apathy, lack of support, the undermining efforts of the afformentioned dirt bag, the I can do it myself w/o professional help mentality have done a real number on the area. Some of the professionals are nothing more than moderately capable amateurs who have hung out a shingle and there are alot of people burned by unscrupulous horse deals..then they quit forever, buy a tennis racket and move on..leaving us with the well deserved mantle of the "horse trader". It is sad becasue it used to be pretty prosperous with several good shows for all levels of riders, from maiden to medal maclay....now there is a year award for novice hunter..what the heck is that??? You win three class(15 points or whatever) and in theory you are out...be second ALL YEAR and win the year end championship!!??? There are so many bizarrely restricted divisions and odd self serving rules it is hard to keep track of them all...I feel bad. The CDHJC I knew was fairly cohesive (as much as horse people could be) and definately progressive..That changed about 10 or so years ago when an unsavory element was allowed too much influence in decision making and allowed into the leadership, which was undermined from the inside out. Now there isn't much left. No winter shows to speak of, no summer shows (save the few A shows they "point") and basically the only thing doing OK is the school horse showing..a veritable cash cow for the barns...

          that is doing much better than the rated shows. Most of their shows are on the same grounds as the rated shows, costs less, more fun, sometimes 3x as many horses, and the quality of horseflesh/people is better. JMHO

            Enquiring minds want to know. I have been out of the CDH/JC for a while (more than 10 yrs) and just started back taking lessons. I'd love gossip, please feel free to em me. Where did you ladies ride? I assume I know who the alleged harasser is. I'm just back to riding and considering buying or leasing but don't want to meet with disaster. Please give some me advice.

                        I still think that CDHJC is great now! It gives you the baby step to start your show career.

                            OMG Jill Get your head out of your butt and smell the doo doo in the Capital District!!! You obviously have not been "around" much or you would realize that this particular area is seriously lacking in knowledgable professionals and if you need proof just go to the upcoming St Clements horse show. The poor,naive people who are buying the load of bull these so called professionals are selling them are an embarassment when they go to the bigger shows. I can only think of one person who I would board and train with in the area and she won't have any thing to do with the locals for the very reasons as stated above. I wish the people in the area would wake up and realize they are being lied to and get help from someone who knows what they are doing. I know I will be at St Clements to watch the local contingent Its my yearly entertainment!!!
                            POG MO THON other nations may swear,but the Irish really mean it.

                              Why are all of you guys grilling on CDHJC? Let me ask you a question. Do you have tons of money that you can spend to go to all of the A shows? I seriously doubt it! CDHJC smaller shows let people who are just starting get a chance at showing.
                              Okay so I know some people that bought horses that were way to much for them but they eventually worked their way thru it. I also know tons of people,Like me, who have bought horse thru the professionals and have had great success.
                              I also know that trainers wont go to the smaller shows because this one doesnt like that one and so on. But you should never burn your bridges behind you!
                              I dont think that you should be picking on CDHJC specifaclly when there are tons of others organizations ought there just like Capital District. I just think it is plain wrong to pick on this one in particular [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_mad.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_mad.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_mad.gif[/img]

                                Also the thing with St. Clemets is the footing isnt the best in the world. And it is the first big show that we get to go to. The horse arent used to being ridden outside. I think that St. Clements is a great show!!!

                                  Yes, Alf, I'm at DM. Funny thing is that I started there 30 years ago. I rode there through my junior years and left to ride with a friend at her place. It is weird being back with PVG after 20 years. I have several friends with horses there so I get to ride an extra horse now and then. I have to admit that I'm not nuts about the schoolies they have right now. I've been riding a horse that they part lease from a boarder. It has been fun riding again after a few years away but after my last horse (the equine love of my life) I am spoiled! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                                    at St. Clements, just other factors leave a bad taste in my mouth.

                                      Hey, Fleetie, welcome. I used to be from upstate New York, so I might know the horse that you used to ride or own. . . who was it?

                                      Also, you said on another thread that you got your screen name from a school horse. That wouldn't be "Fleetwood Lassie," would it? If so, what a small world!!

                                        Jill, we are grilling them because we remember when it WAS decent...There are so many frauds out there and it is sad that customers ussually end up sick and tired of the whole thing from buying bad horses to learning all the wrong stuff..you dont need a fortune to go to A show..they arent that much more than a local show if you go for the day and do the novice stuff. You will be jumping SAFE and SANE courses, not ones built to a 10 foot stride (so all the crippled scopeless horses that were sold to these poor unsuspecting people can come home with a ribbon). The stuff you learn at the current bunch of "shows" is for the most part better off forgotten. I am NO snob but I refuse to spend a weeks pay riding in a place that smells like a cat box or has concrete for footing, igmorant course designing and general low quality. I would rather do ONE A show than a jillion "local" shows.
