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!

      This is going to keep me laughing all day, every time it pops into my head! Priceless.

      But seriously - it just goes to show you that anyone can call themselves an "expert" on the internet, and some poor, unsuspecting soul who is trying to educate themselves a bit is going to stumble on this, and actually think this is how it is done. That is a terrifying prospect.

        LOL, I think she gave the site a bad rep, because I saw some you gentleman demonstrating a martial art technique, he was actually GOOD!

          Darn! I wish I could hear these. I am at school and don't have my earphones.

          Though, they are entertaining even without volume.

              Yes, I did just watch the shin splints video at work. With the sound on. I heard such great things about it but I'd never seen it before. THANK YOU!

                I am new to the wisdom that is Sara Stetner, but...

                OH. MY. GOD.

                Did she just 'itsy bitsy spider' her way up to the withers and then talk about how that equaled 15.3? Even though she only counted to 12?

                And thank goodness I watched the boot demonstration, because I was completely unaware of the fact that I booted my horse incorrectly for all those years. Stupid Pony Club instructors! They never once corrected me! I'm so lucky my horse never sustained a shin splint.

                  I love how the pad of the splint boot goes on the front of the leg, or the Splint Bone. Didn't know that! I thought it went on the inside. And tighten as tight as possible? Good Lord! No wonder the horse is lame!

                    Ok...help me out here. In regards to the height video...why not just invest in a $3 height tape and measure correctly? Though, after the splint boot video...I guess that would make too much sense.

                      I wonder if they were re-circulated just for April Fool's day. Too bad I just can't access youtube at work. Any other place they can be found? I never actually saw one.

                        I'm sitting here at work trying to stifle my laughter, I have tears rolling down my cheeks! I hope to God no one comes in my office right now!

                        I loves me some Sara!
                        Thanks for the much needed laugh!

                        p.s. I hadn't seen the splint boot one before...ROLFMAO!

                          My personal Sarah Stetner favorite is where she shows how to feed your horse "oats" using the old coffee can method of measuring. It majikally turns the sweet feed into oats, yes it's true! Sweet feed turned to oats. Then she showed how to dump it into his feed bucket. Glad I watched that part, I may not have known what to do next.

                            Hmm. I ride horses and I have yet to kill myself or render my mount completely incapacitated. I think I qualify as an "expert horse rider!"

                              Would I be going too far to call her our Lord and Savior of all things equine?

                              Water to wine....oats to sweet feed...

                              Okay seriously though...I wonder what she's up to now? Will we be seeing her on some "Where are they now" special on VH1 (or RFDtv?) I'm curious. I'd watch that.

                                  guilty of googling her...curious where she is now- she may or may not be in real estate LOL!

                                  But on one of the Thousands of horse related sites (seems she is even popular in the UK) someone said she was paid $800 per video- could that possibly be true?

                                    Lol if she was smart she'd attach adsense to her videos. THEN they might generate that $800 each!

                                      $800 per video? No freaking way, I can't believe that.

                                      I've got an idea, how about a Sarah Stetner spoof video contest?

                                      What grand times we could have trying to make the inferior equine instruction video!
