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!

    My sister took a bad fall from her young horse today. She broke her collarbone and 3 ribs. The drs told her it would be at least 10 days before she would feel human again.
    I'm so busy.....I don't know if I found a rope or lost my horse.

    Alright put your big girl panties on and deal with it!

    Oh boy, my DH did the same last year, except his fall was from a bicycle. He was in agony for a couple of weeks. The ribs were worse than the collarbone, I do remember that. The clavicle had what's called a "butterfly fracture". The dr's office kept trying to schedule him for surgery to plate it, but we had such a high deductible on our insurance at the time that we passed.

    *I should add - it was made worse by the fact that the poor man came down with some kind of wicked respiratory bug at the same time; he nearly passed out every time he had to cough.*

    My sympathy and jingles for your sister! And don't tell her anything funny - laughing hurts something fierce.

      Having experienced a broken collarbone, it does hurt and it will take time. Then I read Mara saying the ribs are worse than a collarbone, and I really feel badly for your sister -- that has to be terrible pain! Many jingles for a quick recovery.

        Ow. I galloped into a tree once, 5 ribs broken. Yowza.
        The worst part of ribs, you have nothing people can see, no sympathy and people don't know not to bang into you.
        Jingles for her fast recovery.

          Lots of jingles for your sister. Like horsepoor, I remember how much my broken collar bone hurt, so I can't imagine how bad the ribs must feel if they are worse. And dealing with both at the same time - UGH.

            Even though it hurts like &8(!, it's really important to breathe deeply. Broken ribs can lead to pneumonia because it hurts so much to breathe. I had three broken ribs and a punctured lung from getting kicked in the chest, so I do understand just how painful it is.

            Our lungs need to be expanded frequently to keep the tiny alveoli from sticking together, and also to keep crud from sinking to the bottom lobes of the lungs, leading to pneumonia. So if the patient can stand to take at least 10 deep breaths an hour, it might help avoid some icky consequences. 2-5 breaths with each TV commercial break would be good.

            My sympathies to the invalid and to those who are taking care of him. Good luck!

                OUCH! I've had both injuries, although thank the lord not at the same time. I hope your sister has some good pain meds so she can get some good, quality rest!

                    I remember my poor husband desperately trying not to cough. I'd hear funny noises late at night and go investigate, and would find him clinging white-knuckled to the kitchen counter and turning blue as he stifled the coughs. Of course he probably caught whatever it was he got partly as a result of NOT breathing deeply enough.

                    The good news is that once he got over that, he healed up pretty fast - and he was 53 at the time.

                          Jingles from me too, as a person suffering from 2 broken ribs right now. Also took a fall from my youngster almost three weeks ago.

                          I actually got back on but it wasn't my ribs that made me get off, it was something near my scapula in my back. I'm not convinced it's 'nothing' and am trying to get an MRI.

                          Worst episode I had with the ribs was 7 days after the fall while I was getting into bed (getting in and out of bed is very tricky. And yes, it was about three days after that that I started to feel normal.

                          At three wks in, I can only just now use my left arm to do my hair and can swing it somewhat naturally by my side. Sleeping is getting better but I still have to keep a small pillow clamped under my arm between it and my ribs if I want to lie on my right side (broken ribs are on the left).

                          I've since bought the Hit-Air inflatable vest.
