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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

  • Pricing stadium jumps??

    As we look toward moving BACK across the country, I am divesting large/heavy items that we just won't be able to take with us. ALL of the jumps, free standing walls, brush box, assorted panels are custom made using Estate Fencing, poly boards..never rot and I've never broken a single one. All of the panels can be hung on jump cups as "gates" or angled for "coop" type jumps. Everything fits in a 10 foot wide space. EVERYTHING is in excellent condition. We are in a newly expanding H/J/CT area and I've had several inquires, but need a fair asking price. I will also have several pairs of jump standards...P.Treated, 4x4's, 5' tall, drilled every 3". Currently mounted on my "Wind Proof", "Tornado Alley", weighted poly barrels that can easily be replaced with wooden feet. Thanks.

    Honestly, people are going to try to low ball you no matter what, so set your starting price for the max you think you can get for them. Look at other ads in your area for jumps and see what other people are getting for what condition. I recently sold some very basic 4x4 drilled/base attached/top routed for nice finish for $150 a pair. I think I started at $200. Maybe just list one and see where the price falls, so you don't end up under selling them.

      Is it that you won't have any use for them at your new place? Or don't have room in the moving van. If the latter, I bet you could get them shipped to your new place using U-ship for $500 or less.

        I'm at the age where jumping courses is getting less inviting!! I plan to take a modest number of standards, rails and some panels, but there is a ton of stuff here...we used to "do" hunter/jumper/horse trials at our old farm. I just need enough to school some young horses over. What is "U-ship? We will have to send all of our furniture commercially as well as a big load of horses. We moved our own stuff the last 300 mile move...this time it is closer to 1000 miles and my husband no longer drives....a lot of things are looking less important!!

          We are in "Cowboy Country'', Texas....English, H/J/CT is just a developing sport. Nothing to compare stuff to in our area!! But on the other hand...lots of needy buyers I hope!!

            U-ship is a website where people with stuff to ship get matched with truckers willing to haul it. It's sort of like the Ebay of shipping. Commercial truckers use UShip to pick up odd loads to fill gaps in their usual schedule. Or they're dead-heading (driving empty) back to their home base and if they're heading that way anyway, it's a chance to make some money rather than drive empty. You can list your load on their site (works just like an ebay auction, where drivers bid on the load) or skip the auction and just book the load directly with one of the carriers on their site.

            Same as with ebay, there's a bit more risk/less consumer protection when you're doing business with an individual person, rather than a big company. And the burden's on you to package / strap your stuff to pallets, etc. If all that seems daunting, best to just hire a commercial mover.

              You might want to start by pricing the lumber, paint and whatever you use for pins at the big box store. It’s a starting place trying to price them, figure out the materials cost.
              When opportunity knocks it's wearing overalls and looks like work.

              The horse world. Two people. Three opinions.

                Thank you for that info.

                We have a large flat bed, GN trailer. I'm thinking one trip east with that LOADED with farm implements, (not taking the tractor or big pieces.) some jump supplies and packed barrels well strapped on will make a big dent in our "stuff". 50 gallon fiberglass barrels work great....fill them, seal them, move them with a dolly and go!!
                When we moved from Ok. to Tx. I bought a HUGE, oversized 5 horse "draft", slant, trailer with a large dressing/weekender room. I had that baby packed like a sardine can...if I had a 6 inch hole...I found 6"s to fill it!! Spent a long, leisurely time packing...drove to Texas and parked it...unloaded it when our house was ready to move into...then sold the trailer for a profit!! I can't do that this time as I am the only driver in the household. Horses will ship commercially - except 5 on our trailer and a mover will have to take the furniture.

                  Using those blue barrels instead of "wings"...I figure $20/barrel, 1/2 of a 10' 4x4 post ($10-$12) and the labor to drill every hole and lag the postS to the barrels. I'd guess $50-60/pair.????

                  What about the "estate" board gates/panels, walls and brush box?? Everything is VERY attractive, in excellent condition and weather, rot, rust proof!! "Schooling or Show" quality.
