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!

  • Anyone in Canada?

    I want to purchase something special for a trainer who is moving, and who has helped a ton of kids over the years. What I want to get her is on ebay and cannot be shipped by the seller to the US due to the embargo (which I am not knowledgeable about). Is there any way to get it shipped to someone in Canada who I can then pay postage to, and get it shipped, or does the embargo mean nobody can ship out of Canada.

    What embargo? I buy stuff from Canada all the time and they ship here. Is it the item you are wanting to buy is perhaps prohibited from being shipped to the US?

      It is a small antique rug and I too am confused as to why the seller wont ship to the states. So I was hoping there was a way around it, maybe, by shipping it to someone in Canada who then in turn ships it to me. But I have no idea if this would be legal.

        Embargo?

        I'm from Canada and I've bought few things on ebay from the US.

        ETA : Not sure I would buy from someone who think there is an embargo on rugs between Canada and US.

          No embargo that I'm aware of I've done the opposite a few times -- ordered from the states and shipped it to someone there who then sent it on to me in Canada. Some retailers (Smartpak! Curse them and their outrageously reasonable prices!) won't ship to Canada, and this is how I've solved the problem.

          A lot of ebay sellers just don't like to do international shipping, because it is a pain. It's certainly not illegal to have it shipped to a third party who then ships it on to you. Just make sure the seller is paid for the item, and you're good to go!

              Embargo? Not unless you are trying to ship her some soft wood lumber!

              Are you in the US and trying to get something from Cuba? Or is the rug made from some substance that can't be shipped across borders in general? I know that's a stretch but there are some things that can't be imported due to infestation concerns (plants) or international bans (ivory). A rug seem innocuous though.

                There is indeed an embargo that prevents Iranian made rugs being imported into the US. This would include Persian rugs.

                It has had a big effect on the Persian rug industry.

                Edited to add: this would include someone sending it from Canada for you. Only rugs already in the US can be sold/traded within America.

                  Just wondering what you buy in Canada to ship to the US? Everything is more expensive here! I buy from US suppliers all the time to save a bundle (I live in a boarder town so I can drive over to pick it up).

                    Ok, that makes more sense!

                      Yep, I read up on it today. Looks like I won't be taking advantage of that great deal. BUT there are rugs available here that "have been here" since before the embargo and are legal to sell

                        Beads for my browbands. I prefer to use gemstones, D grade or better, no dye, natural only. IF I can get them. Sometimes I can't and have to use dyed stuff. The dyed stuff looks okay and means I can charge less, but I'd rather the good stuff.

                        There is an eBay seller in Canada that sells really nice lapis lazuli in odd shapes (rice, ovals, columns, tear drops) at a decent price. Only wish I could get squares from them.

                        Otherwise, I buy from some sites in the US, but they usually only have rounds and are more expensive in the long run.
