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!

  • Devon Lead line, Saturday, who's going?

    I understand that there is a group from this forum that will go AND party. My granddaughter is going for the first time and she's 4 so I'm really excited. I will live vicariously through her, lol.

    Does anyone else have a child, grandchild, student, family or friend that you will be cheering for this year?

  • #2
    Yes! We have a little girl from our barn going this year and most of us will be there to cheer her on! Can't wait! Good luck to your granddaughter!

      I'm in Chester County, PA, maybe my granddaughter is from your barn??? Would be a coincidence.

      Are you from this area? Just wondering who might also be local. I think it would be fun to have some of the kids see each other and say hello. What age is the little girl from your barn, is she over or under 4 for the class?

        I am from this area! I ride in Chester Springs, PA. I'm pretty sure she is 4 in the horse show world but not entirely sure, so she may! I'll send you a PM with my barn's name!

          I read your PM before this post. Our barn is in Cochranville, PA, other side of the county. But I hope I meet you at Devon, cheering on the 4 year olds. They may not be in the ring very long but hopefully it will be a great memory. It would be cool to get some photos of the kids together, as many as will fit in the camera lens. Kind of like class mates, see who returns next year, etc.

            I understand that Lead line is 1 PM, anyone know differently?

            And I'm guessing the kids are going to be lining up to go in in the exercise area, going to be a long line. Our kids will be with Brookstone Stables. Should be a few people hanging around with the jackets if it's cool enough for them.

            Does anyone know what the weather is supposed to be like? I watched the weather on TV and I think they said that it's going to rain till Saturday and then be kind of overcast on Saturday, moderate temps. But I just looked at AOL's forecast and it shows rain for Saturday with a high of 80. Maybe we have a shot at nice weather.

              I hate to report that they're predicting thunder storms for Saturday -- The high is supposed to be around 80 --

              Here's hoping the forecast is wrong and the kids get to enjoy their lollipops --

                NO, NO, NO!!! No rain drops on my precious granddaughter's head or any of the other little heads either. And definitely NO thunder and lightening, OMG, that can't be. They have to cancel if there's lightening. You can't let little kids ride in that. I think some day they'll have to enclose an arena. I hope the forecast changes, the weather is so hard to count on either way.

                But lollipops, cool! And a light blue ribbon for all. That's great, just like a birthday party, you have to have something for all your guests.

                    I will be there with a student of mine. It is her last year in lead line, her first time going to Devon with me. I hope she can bring home a ribbon her final year. Even though her mom is leading her, it will still be fun to stand there and watch.

                      At this point, Saturday appears to be the only REALLY nasty day of the week. It's the only day for thunderstorms.

                      I know it's completely possible to have it turn around so I'm not going to worry just yet, in fact I refuse to worry. I'll just cry. Just kidding, it's still only a horse show.

                        1. Don't you know that it's "always sunny at Devon"??? I will cross my fingers for cooperative weather.

                        2. Saturday 5/23 from 2:30-4:30pm is children's crafts in the pavillion across from the Garden Cafe. Once you're done with leadline, if the kiddies aren't fried-- stop by and do some crafts and get face painting done.

                        3. If you stick around, hunt teams are in the afternoon and they're super fun for the kids to watch.

                        4. If it does rain (I sure hope it doesn't) you can grab a Devon anorak, umbrealla, AND rain boots at the souvenir booth

                        Good luck to all!

                          I will be heading up to photograph for my Spanish teacher from freshman year as her daughter will be riding. If anyone would like some extra shots of your little ones, PM me their numbers and I can send you any shots I get!

                          Am I feeling a COTH leadliners cheering section in the making??

                                That would be awesome, thank you! We're with Brookstone Stables and trainer Brooke Brown.

                                  We have two in the Under 4s going from our barn. I can't wait to see it! All the kids and ponies are always so cute. Everyone have fun!

                                    Saturday's forecast has changed to partly cloudy with only a 20% chance of rain

                                      I am pregnant with my first - a boy - and I can't wait to get him started with ponies!! I wondered - do the kids have to qualify for lead line at Devon, or do they just sign up? Is there an age requirement for the kids? A height requirement for the ponies? It's a few years away, I guess, but it is fun to imagine doing.
