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!

    You will have to have fun without me..and I know that you will have fun.

    My list of things to get is a better truck so I can bring both my horses from Indiana. However, on another note, my hunt whipper-in and his wife own a massive truck and trailer said that they would love to come out with me the next time I go to ole virginny. They would be able to trailer our horses out. So hopefully, I can get that worked out next season!!
    I love my OTTB! I get my dressage test done faster!

      Hey there BBT...sorry you can't come in the spring, but I'm certainly up for a fall weekend too, so perhaps we can meet up then with your hunt companions.
      I've a couple of friends in CT who would like to come down with me, too, and can't come in March, so we can certainly come up with a quorum.

          Hunter's Rest,
          Tonight Mason and I are in Ogden Utah, thinking of you and your BF. How I wish I could stop and ski!

          I have every intention of being back in the thick of planning with you when I can stop driving long enough to plot and scheme..

                Wateryglen,
                The Snobbington Hunt dancing girls are attending? Are they bringing the celebratory libations for the filling of the flasks ceremony? Do their tiaras have different LED colors for their lites or feathers? We do have standards! Ask BigBayTb!

                  Sadly, I've discovered my tiara is somewhat broken...got stepped on by the dog. But now the real question...do I replace it, or wear it with the damaged tiara just as a true hunter would continue to use a well worn coat or helmet? Or must the signs of wear & damage come directly from the hunt?

                    Attn: Snobbington members!

                    Well to answer ya'lls burning questions!......Yes the SH dancing girls are comin'. And yes bringing libations but....remember the flasks HAVE to be the pink sparkley ones. And the SH tiara's all have multicolored blinkining LED lights so replacements are in order. You can order them online at the Tiara's R Us website. They have some with other kinds of feathers...besides the pink/purple chicken feathers on ours. We will keep up the Hunting Princess standards by all means necessary!

                    And Hinderella! Wow that's a toughie! You make some compelling points! Not sure! I "think" its ok to keep wearing a broken one...consider it "character" or like jewelry on horses in that it's noticeable but not significant! I don't think the damage has to be directly hunt related. But I am not the Snobbingtons Etiquette Police...We'll have to look into a replacement tiara.
                    Carry on!!

                        OMG! After that performance we might have to hawk the tiaras (despite the fact that mine is still on lay away), pool our money and send CarrieK a ticket!

                        You had me at "and hold their manhoods!"

                          I hope this becomes an annual event. I want to try foxhunting, but don't think I can make it this time (since I can't drive myself around, I need to wait until I can convince someone else to go with me and be the driver ).

                          But it sounds like so much fun - even if you didn't go hunting. All these fun women in one place!

                            Would love to come but...

                            hank and I are massively out of shape. I haven't been on the old boy in months. He would have a blast, but probably would not admit that at 24 he needs to be in some sort of shape to join in the fun.

                              no no no no - you cannot squirm out of it that easily!!!

                              HR's hunt has a walk trot group. She will not do anything that will be too much for your horse.

                              Bring your horse out - and if he gets tired or wants to take a nap you can easily go back in - and someone will be glad to escort you if needed.

                              You can join in the other activities - remember Sunday is basseting and I'm hosting our COTH group - you are most welcome to join us to chase some rabbits.

                              Come on!!! You can do it!

                                  While looking for something else today, I came across the original topic where Hinderella asked if it was feasable for her to start fox hunting at her age and stage. It appears that that was where this idea really began to hatch and I can't believe we newbies signed up for this knowing that you ladies will obviously be innebriated and won't be able to stay on your horses And that you are all pre-fallen, and walk like Festus.
