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!

  • OKC GO Show!

    Is anyone coming to the GO (Great Oklahoma H/J Association) AA show for two weeks in July? It's in OKC. It's not like OKC has a whole bunch of competition, but it sure is a fun show when we get lots of people from other states coming!!
    I <3 my horses!

    I'm planning on going for the second week although my horse will be there the entire time. I haven't been in a few years and I'm hoping the improvements to the facility will make it a little bit nicer.

      I'm thinking about going if I can find a way for my horse to get there and back....

      I've never been, but have heard they are really fun shows!

              The new facility is absolutely AMAZING! We have had some little schooling shows there this season, and it's fantabulous! haha!

              The shows are great, and with the new facility...they are even better!

              Yep! The rings are AC'ed, except for one- and it's inside and shaded but not too hot! And plus, I don't they plan on showing in that one this year (although I'm not 100% sure on that!)

              Yeah, I think the lottery would make life so much easier during these tough times! haha!

              haha! Those are the people that have the music video on the treadmills? I'd seriously injure myself while trying to make a music video like that!!!

                We will be there with my A/O hunter and my AA hunter for both weeks. We are bringing a yearling and two year old for the hunter breeding and International Hunter Futurity the second week.

                  I may pop in for some jumper classes with my QH gelding.

                  The fairgrounds is a great place to show now with the improvements. However, make sure that you do not leave your valuables in your trucks and lock everything up! There has been a rash of breakins during some of the shows this spring and the Fairgrounds and OKC police department are working on it. But better be safe than sorry!

                      The International Hunter Futurity Mid-West Regional will be happening on the 21st. Very exciting. Summer & I are going to try to make it up there to watch although we won't have anything nominated to show until next year.

                        Thanks for the compliment...I love both my mares. What division do you show in? What's your horses name? Were you in Waco?

                          I show in the younger A/As for now, hoping to move up to the 3'3 A/Os in the fall, and maybe the 3'6 next year...seems ambitious, we'll see.

                          I was at waco all three weeks. Didn't you show Ascot U/S week 2? If so I was on the long black horse with the giant head next to you in the line up. His name is Toujours (TJ)

                              A great reminder for everyone. A few years ago in OKC my trainer and I had both of our purses stolen as we were unloading the trailer. Its safe to say being without cell phones, credit cards and any money at all makes life very difficult.

                                  ...because I registered with COTH just to tell the peeps on here that I was going to go watch the GO show and take pics.

                                  So what's everyone planning on showing in? I was planning on just staying in the jumper ring because that is my favorite, but last year, there were some reallllllllllllllllllly nice hunters...hmmmm....

                                      Please come to the hunter ring!!!!!! I'm showing my guy in the younger A/As, both weeks. I haven't gotten a decent picture all year.

                                      TJ is pretty easy to pick out, as he's usually one of the few black horses in the class. He has a star and snip with four little white socks.

                                      This is him
