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!

          Yadkin Valley's hunter paces are FABULOUS. Great people, gorgeous country, wonderful jumps...it's heaven!!!! Best $15 you can spend on a horse outing...

            It could be, but over a year ago I found a great site that listed many of the hunt clubs and hunter paces in all of NC - then I got a new computer and didn't transfer my old bookmarks/favorites!

            So perhaps it is that one (since I did find it to post the link above ) or is there site with links to all the hunt clubs in NC? I'll have to search further.

            I do have to choose a hunter pace to attend soon - so hard to get my little group together to agree on dates!
            Although it is nice to have a group

              It IS so much more fun to have a group!!! I can't ever get a group together. Most of the ladies that I board with would love to, but our schedules never mesh!

                  Greensboro area.

                  Since you are 4 hours from the Yadkin Valley, I assume you are a few hours from me also.

                  We have a great little group, all riding abilities, our only problem (besides scheduling) is that most of us don't have our own horses! Two are in the market, and one has a still-green ottb. We do have access to some great horses at our barn - so we are determined to make some hunter paces this summer.

                            I went to one a couple weeks ago out in Walterboro and had a blast. It was at a plantation so it didn't have any jumps, but the scenery was just gorgeous. The horses seemed to enjoy it out there a lot too. Hope you get to come!

                              Yadkin Valley

                              I attended my first Yadkin Valley Hunt Trail Ride Today and it was absolutely fabulous. We did the moderate time and mostly trotted but walked at the end when our horses were tuckered out with the heat. The trails were through the woods, through fields, up and down hills (some sizable), across water, up and down ditches, and included about a nice variety of jumps. Pretty inviting jumps I might add. I highly recommend if you are in the area to attend. From Davidson, it took us only about 1 hour. Such nice people. I hunted in Virginia with a couple of different hunts for quite a few years and can say that I had a very good time today with Yadkin Valley.

                              Lookng forward to the next one - they are twice a month on Sundays- Darden

                              edited to add - it was like 5 miles long.
                              It's 2016. Do you know where your old horse is?

                                I have had my eye on the Western NC paces for some time - my boy is just a show ring hunter (rolls eyes) and I'm trying to widen his horizens. I have limited space to ride him outside a ring. He's a good smart boy and not a young thing, but he tends to get a little freaky in big open spaces, with or without other horses (read: runs off I love that sig line somebody has: He wasn't running off I just couldn't stop him!) He will steer though when he takes off, so I figure on a pace I can keep him from running INTO anything or anybody, so just let him run til he gets tired out, after a mile or two he'll stop I'm still not quite sure this is safe enough, so I just keep turning over the idea. And he does keep getting better in my limited pasture. I think going in the hot is also a better idea though than in the cool fall.

                                    Hey - I actually posted the website a few posts up. I can't remember the name of the specific plantation off the top of my head, but it's put on by The Low Country Hunt. I missed the one they had last week since my horse was out of commission, but they have one Sept 20th that's supposed to be awesome! Feel free to PM me if you'd like some more info.
