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!

              I'm not a fan of PH either.

              Either I grew up and learned "too much" or the magazine got too basic and diversified into lots of articles about things other than riding, training and caring for horses.

              That's too bad because I'm sure I don't know all there is about making a really nice horse or every last trick of the pro groom. I wish it could morph back into the useful magazine I remember in the 1980s.

                I just started getting Warmbloods Today a little bit ago and I'm really liking it so far. I like the breeding/business aspect behind it. PH is too much "fluff" and beginner stuff for me these days.. not much in there that I want to read.

                  This. I used to love to read the old issues from the 80s into the early 90s... and then by the time I finally got my subscription, it really kinda sucked. Really makes me wish I'd kept all those old copies...

                    UK Magazines

                    There are a couple of UK magazines that I pick up every once in a while at Barnes & Noble: Your Horse (www.yourhorse.co.uk) and Horse (http://www.horsemagazine.co.uk/). There is also the venerable Horse & Hound (http://www.horseandhound.co.uk/) though I can never find it in the U.S bookstores. I like these magazines in general because they are a mix of all the disciplines; they are also written for what I think is the "every day" rider, with articles about horse care and product reviews. I also use them to scope out possible riding vacation destinations...

                      Yupp.

                      I actually keep my eyes peeled on ebay for the old issues. I have most all of the 1990's, late 80's, some 70s even. I've subscribed myself for over 10 years, and I finally stopped because its just plain awful- and realized they run the same articles as in Equus, which I also used to subscribe to and don't anymore.

                        Funny this has come up. Do people actually BUY old issues? Long story short, I think I'm reverse "nesting" after having our new son at home for a couple of months and I'm getting rid of stuff. I have ten years worth of PH pretty much every issue for each year. I was going to donate them to a 4H group or something. Is there actually a market for these though?

                          I bought 50+ 80's, 90's, and early 2000's PHs on eBay last year. Love them!

                            Oh! I love those magazines and I would definitely subscribe to them if they werent so outrageously expensive!

                              Out West they have ShowBiz magazine and Riding Magazine. I think ShowBiz is all HJ and Riding is all-discipline, but does a HJ issue you could buy, and it covers HJ, too. I think ShowBiz is similar to the old Horses Magazine that the Quirks used to do in the 80s and 90s, which was one of my favorites, they always had gorgeous photography. I have a HUGE bin of those in my basement, it's a pain to move, so heavy. I've thought about selling those on eBay, but I feel like someday I'll wanna pull them out and reread them all and reminisce, so I keep them.

                                I picked up the latest issue of PH and could not believe how thin the magazine was, hardly anything in it to read, mostly advertisements and not much else. I quit subscribing to both it and DT. If I want one I'll pick one up at the book store. I miss Hunter & Sporthorse. I used to get some from the UK but it wasn't cost effective. The book store carries a few so I'll buy them when I'm in town, they are great and they always give away tons of prizes, I've always wondered why our magazines don't do that?

                                  Love the UK mags! They are so much more informative than the US mags. I go to B&N to get them. They must be pretty popular, because they sell out fast! Worth the money I think!

                                    There is one based in CO, but has expanded to the PNW called Horse Connection.

                                    www.horseconnection.com

                                    It doesn't really have any 'training' info in it, but its almost a really good way to keep up on the show scene (for me at least) for the area mentioned above. Pictures are great, layout is really appealing. I just love it haha. It can usually be found free at participating tack stores, but I had to get a subscription because of living in the boonies.

                                    I still like PH but agree that its been 'dumbed down' a bit. However, any info is good for me...and even if it is basic, it still makes sense and sometimes people need to be reminded of the basics.

                                        This one is published in the Midwest but has GREAT dressage and other sport horse articles. I think the articles are of good technical quality. Great magazine!
