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!

    Colin, Can I join the AWB Association?
    My boy is really cute...very much like you've described your own, except for the color....smutty sooty buckskin...sometimes silver, sometimes brown, depending on the season!
    And btw, he will be started at age four because of an injury at 9 mos! Actually, I personally like them started at four anyway, but that's my NC Hick ideas comming up again!

    ERIN! Why did you have to delete that tack noseband thread?! I was looking so forward to reading it...to take a walk down memory lane, when I had NO CLUE about Colin! Man, that thread was something else!

      You can't PROVE it has Morgan in it, right??? So therefore it's a full fledged NAW!

      We're still debating the Appaloosa issue. If yours has a tail, I think we will probably let it "in".

      To become a NAW registered horse, the animal must be "presented" before the founders. We will evaluate it's breeding, rideability, and several other factors to determine whether it can be registered or not.

      Having jumped a 2'6" fence before the age of 4 is a requirement.

      The rules will be posted in full early next week, after the NAWA founders have met to discuss the specific requirements.

        Looks promising, Pacifico. The injury is good enough cause for not starting him sooner! The color sounds PERFECT for the NAWA.

        How big? Any "guesses" as to his breeding? Does he trail ride? Can you ride him bareback with a halter?

          Well, Colin, I believe he is a solid 15.1, going on 15.2. He is of Quarter horse and TB decent, though I believe something else might be in there too. He has only been backed twice, and that was by me in a pasture full of other youngsters and without a halter! He did fine, and had he been a bit more alive, I imagine a good run might have been had [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
          He will be trail ridden...extensively! And I promise to jump him as soon as possible!

              Sorry about that- I guess I got a little carried away there. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_redface.gif[/img] It just makes me mad when I see a perfectly nice horse who is dead lame at the age of 10. But since you are talking about NAWs, I mean, it shouldn't be a problem. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img] BTW Morgans rule!!!!
              All I wanted was a white knight, with a good heart, soft touch, fast horse!

                  We jumped my Morgan pony at 3 months old do you think he will be dead lame at age 1? He is a super jumper at 3 months he can jump anything including a 3 foot wall in my back yard. Maybe VA trainer will read this and tell me if she thinks I should use a chain nose band?

                        Thank you! (on both accounts) Those 100day stallions don't NEED to stay jumping sound for the long haul (sure they get to jump big fences, then they're retired to stud). Again, why ask for opinions if you are going to do what you want anyway.

                          Excellent!!!! We may have to rethink the Morgan issue.....hummmm.....sounds like exceptional prospects for the NAWA!

                          Speaking for VA Trainer....I would not suggest a chain noseband quite yet... may be something to "look forward to" in the future??

                          BTW - my NAW hopped over a 2' vertical yesterday in his lesson....he was very cute...but got bored after the 5th time trotting it...and decided he was "done"! LOL! 3-4 times a month, trotting 1 1/2'-2' verticals won't hurt him....it actually makes his rides more interesting!

                          Look forward to the NAWA rulebook to be posted next week!

                            I free-schooled this yearling last night (over poles on the ground) and she jumped them like they were 3'. She can't be registered as anything but NAW. Please consider her and send me an application. I have sooo many people tell me she's chestnut (with black pionts/mane/tail?). My father is convinced she's a dun---dorsal stripe... She's 3/4 TB and the other 1/4 isssss DWB!!! Hope that doesn't cast her out on the streets-she needs to belong somewhere!!!

                                Does size matter??? Is there a size limit? Should I be feeding her coffee in her mash to control her size??? Her full TB, 1/2 sister (same daddy), is bigger, but is already registered TB so she can't be an NAWA...

                                  Jamie, as the owner of the horse who is #1 in the NAW registry, I feel qualified to answer your question. Size does matter, but there is a broad range of acceptable sizes for the NAW. If your horse meets the other qualifications, size will not be a problem... Of course the founding members are still working on the rules [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
