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!

  • New Bartville Catalog is out! With Coupon....

    I have been waiting for the new catalog for months... it finally arrived and is great. Wanted to let everyone know they are running 10% of your order from Thanksgiving-Christmas (you must have the coupon, so call them and have one sent to you).

    I cannot WAIT to order my new bridle and martingale... just trying to decide on the hook or buckles.

    If you need a catalog and/or coupon, call Mon-Fri between 8:00-8:30am EST. The phone number is 717-529-6992.

        I needed new stirrup leathers so I ordered from Bartville. Everything else I've bought from them over the years- bridles, breastplates, halters and sandwich case has been terrific. The stirrup leathers were no exception- solid and sturdy.

        I was a little nervous about them getting my mail. The envelope would have arrived either Saturday or Monday of last week- right before Sandy hit the east coast. Bartville marches on because the box from UPS was on my front porch yesterday afternoon.

          And the new catalog is dead sexy. The pictures are better/more clear, there's an order form, and the holiday sale is a nice bonus! If you've been dragging your feet on getting a Bartville catalog, this year's the one to get it.

          For the Bartville noobs out there, don't delay. The stuff is drop-dead gorgeous and the prices are excellent, but between mailing out your order/allowing time for your order to be processed and your check to clear/waiting for UPS to get your package to you, you should allow 2-3 weeks for the whole transaction to go through. If you want speed, then pay double for the same stuff at Bit of Britain.

            Yes, the new catalog is very nice.
            I'm finally getting off the fence and ordering a new bridle because the prices have gone up a bit, and the 10% coupon offers the last chance to get it at the old prices.

                I purchased a sandwich case and riders belt from them.

                I did the math wrong (not a surprise to those who know me).

                When I received my items they sent a note along with change.

                They didn't need to do that, I hadn't noticed I'd done the math wrong (see sentence above, in quotes.)

                Good folks. I'm happy to give them my business again.

                  Made a trip up to Bartville last week and purchased a new bridle, reins, and a martingale. Beautiful quality leather and craftsmanship, great prices, and excellent customer service. They were above and beyond helpful. Two thumbs up!!

                    Ok even though I'm across the country, I must see these items!! Can someone give me an idea on their prices? I'm needing a dressage bridle, and a breastplate with running martingale attachment. Found one at Mary's, but no way in hell am I paying $300 for a martingale!!!

                      Bridles: about $95-$136 for the headstall depending on what noseband and bridle size you want. Reins are sold separately and span a wider price range, everything from very basic leather reins at around $42 to unlabeled versions of the Nunn Finer Soft Grip and Eventa reins up around $75.

                      Breastplates: $87-$124, again depending on how much gee-whiz you want. Running attachments $24-$39 depending on size and whether you get the elastic version.

                      Count on between $15-$20 for shipping, although IME Bartville will send you back a few bucks in change if they were able to ship your order for less than that.

                      All 2013 prices, not accounting for the 10% off sale.

                          TOTALLY worth the prices - I can upload a picture of the new bridle and martingale I got a few weeks ago. I just called yesterday to order a new hunt breastplate and running attachment - one is $87 and one with elastic is $95, the running attachment is $25

                            I just sent them a nice hunt stick I bought on ebay to have them put a crop end on it. Ordered a thong, and sent them my sandwich case to have one of the straps repaired. They called me just yesterday to let me know they are going to try to get it all back to me by Christmas, which would be fantastic for Boxing Day hunt!

                            My catalog didn't come with a coupon though. Too bad.

                            I really want to try to get to the actual store one of these days when I'm back east in the Philly area visiting family. I never understood all the posts of people asking for tack stores to visit in whatever area they were traveling to. But now I get it!
