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!

      I have the whole set, Precision (jumper pictured) Courage cross country, and Expressions dressage. I am keeping Courage and giving the other two as gifts. I was going to sell them, but thought the people getting them might enjoy them.

      Heheh maybe I should include superglue

            No. Absolutely.Not. I have plenty of things (doo dads) which do nothing but gather dust so I have to dust them.


            A horse vacuum? Why yes, please thank you.

            A full tank of gas on my truck? Why yes, please thank you.

            This "gift" seems like a non-horse person giving a horse person a gift. Those are terrible, and are to be regifted at the first dirty santa party in line.

            Can ya tell it turns me off big time? Waste of $.

              Well, aren't you a barrel of holiday cheer?

              OP, I think it's beautiful. I have very little horse art in my house but were I a jumper rider, it would have a place of honor in my home

                Why don't you just tell me how you really feel ?

                I will have to go out and tell all my students, my old Intermediate eventer, my 4th level Dressage horse, and my hunter mare that I am a non horse person.

                  It's not my cup of tea either, but if it will suit the person you are thinking of, go for it.

                  A thoughtful and suitable gift, even if used and/or "free" for the giver, beats out a $$$ new-but-generic gift any day.

                    Great. After the one persons post now I feel like a jerk for thinking she would enjoy it , I guess I should just sell it for the $700 I saw the last one on ebay go for.

                      If it is new in the box (and you can fix it without it showing), I would definitely give it to her.

                        Yes, it is new and in the box, with its COA. Am leary of fixing it before hand as it is such a delicate piece. I know people who fixed the same spots (which is why they only made 300 of them) but only after they put it up.

                        And to the people who are PMing me saying I am a cheapskate and other things I won't post on here for dumping my garbage on her thanks. Now I feel like sh*t for trying to give my friend / student something I thought she would enjoy

                          It sounds like a lovely thoughtful gift.

                            Don't let those people get to you. Anybody who likes Breyers know that is not a s*itty gift! I got some really nice vintage Breyers from my first trainer for learning my diagonals that I still cherish to this day. I say go for it.

                              From what you've added, this sounds like a to-die-for gift for the right person. Go with your instincts, and don't let random people on the internet spoil a great idea.

                                How on earth is it "garbage" when it can sell for about $200??? Good lord, people. Ignore their bah-humbugs, Couture.

                                  I think it's a nice, thoughtful gift. I'm sure your student will appreciate it ver much.

                                  And honestly, if they don't like it, they can always sell it. Or do wih it as they please!

                                    It is a great gift for many reasons! First of all, it is a lovely piece, nicely done and quite accurate. My husbund gave it to me for Christmas one year and I treasure mine. (the cats steal the jump poles all the time though and a paint brush is a great way to dust it!) It is becoming a rare collectible piece as they only made so many and don't make them anymore. Anyone who appreciates jumping horses will love it in their collection. It is a great gift and what a generous gesture to give it instead of sell it!

                                      I think the Breyer thingy is a lovely gift.... but, this post made me laugh out loud! ONLY horse people REALLY appreciate/think of - a full tank of fuel in the truck as a WONDERFUL gift... I would LOVE that too

                                      BTW - I did a little research and discovered this thing is selling for $300+ $$$ out there... so, yes this is a wonderful gift/collectors item

                                        Personally, I think its lovely and would love to have it even though I don't have jumpers. But I'm a knick knack, collector kind of person. So I suppose it would depend if your student is a knick knack type person or not. Some folks are, some aren't.

                                        I'm always amazed at people who will take the trouble to pm somebody just to bad mouth them. WTH? No offense to anyone but I don't really care enough about folks on the internet to hunt them down and slam them, unless they did something REALLY heinous like Jaci Rae Jackson. I've chatted with a few folks via pm about things of no interest to the general population but send a pm to bad mouth? My momma taught me if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all.
