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!

  • Scott Wilson- Los Angeles Trainer died - WCAR

    FROM WCAR

    CONDOLANCES AND SADDNESS

    I am sad to report the death of our long time friend and horse trainer
    Scott Wilson of Los Angeles.
    He was in Big Bear on a skiing holiday and had trouble breathing yesterday.


    He was a long time supporter of WCAR
    and was in Spruce Meadows with us this last summer for our WCAR Teams.

    I will keep you informed as I know details of the services.

      OMG I am so sorry, what a shock!

      I worked as an assistant trainer for Scott when he was in Valley Center (at Edelbrock). I ran into him at Pebble Beach after not seeing him for 20 years, I am so glad I had the chance to talk to him again. It seemed like his life turned out really well, I am so sorry to hear it has ended so suddenly when he was still relatively young

                I was very sad to hear about this. I grew up in Milford, CT with Scott. I wish I could be there at his service to tell of some of the CRAZY times we had when we were kids. We are lucky to be alive. One story was Scott had a pony named Sweet Sue and he also had a pony I think named snooky that pulled a cart. We had an area of Eisenhower park that was called the "straight away" we would race our ponies flat out down this area. Scott let his friend Wayne drive snooky so we were all racing and I remember the cart breaking (the seat area where Wayne was sitting) and Snooky still flat our dragging the cart and Wayne's ass being dragged down the straight away. Sooo many funny Scott stories. One Sunday before any of us had a driver's license, we were all ready to go to this horse show where our friend Lynn's father was suppose to drive the horse trailer. We were all ready at the barn by 4:30 am. 5 am is approaching and we are getting nervous so Scott decides he will Call Mr. Floyd to "make sure he was awake" Bad Move. I remember the Horror look on Scott's face after him sayiing "Hello Mr. Floyd, just want to make sure you are up and ready" He then hung up the phone. Mr. Floyd in a very dry tone said "Scott, Don't you EVER call my house at this hour" I can still remember Scott's immitation of him to this day.

                Does anyone know if the family plans anything for the East Coast? I know Scott had 2 sisters. Not sure where they live.

                    Maybe a note to Alex, funny stories and anecdotes would be appreciated. I'm sure that Scott would be grateful to know that he was admired and respected, but he would also laugh his butt off reminiscing about those stories. He was above all a great father entirely devoted to his son.

                        Just sent you an email with Alex's email from the communication I got yesterday.

                        My Scott story was his recounting the time he took his pony to one of his first (maybe his first) shows. They got a trailer but thought that the pony was supposed to go in backwards--with the manger to catch the poop and the nice big window in back for the pony to look at. It was a lot funnier when he told it...

                        I remember him playing on the beach with Alex at a party for a mutual friend. They looked so content together. This was years ago--Alex was maybe about 4-5 y.o. at the time.

                          I was only 19 years old when I worked for Scott. I grew up very poor, and always had free horses, or free rides on horses no one ever wanted to ride. I had to "try out" for him on what was their most difficult horse, a newly imported 4 or 5 year old that was green broke. They then left me alone on their farm for several weeks while they went on the road, leaving me with several horses ranging from two greenies, to a retired AO jumper named The Victor, and one of the nicest hunters of the day (I believe her name was Emily Post?). I was in heaven never having the chance to ride such amazing horses!

                          When he got back he gave me a lesson on the greenie (I wish I remembered is name) and it was at the time the highlight of my life. They offered me a full time job, and he said things to me in that lesson that have stuck with me to this day, and had a very big impact on my riding and my life.

                          A car accident and financial issues sent me to other jobs and back to college, but I will always have a place in my heart for Scott and the opportunity that he gave me at that time in my life.

                            You will be happy to know that Scott's sisters gave him an amazing sendoff including entries in his journal that mentioned winning so many classes and record beating statistics.In that same journal he left many pages empty to fill with new horses and pets he was sure to acquire.He said so.. It was at times somber, bag pipes always evoke tears and uplifting as so many friends and colleagues were there to remember his soul. We left to a spirited rendition of Rhinestone Cowboy, it was about as darn perfect an honor as any man gets.
