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!

  • So, in other news, what brought the NWHA National to the Calsonic this year?

    It's been in TN for years. Then last year was a huge "GOODBYE and KISS IT" to the entire state of TN and it moved to Ohio. Where it was going to stay.

    What has happened in NWHA-land to have them holding their year-end (The National) show- at The Calsonic?

        Its actually been pretty quiet, I imagine that will change in march when the new bill is introduced.
        As to your question I don't know. Bit odd, just says on their website due to popular demand.

          I know a lot of people in NWHA. There is not conspiracy here: the reason was TRULY what they said--the popularity of the location. Plus it was much cheaper than other places they were looking at.

              It has been quiet but there is a lot of scurrying and strategizing going on with the BL powers that be. Also there is an sale at the Calsonic coming up.

              • All of the
                big players are at the drawing boards,trying to figure out which senator they can buy to stop HR6388 from passing. the David Howards and Dr.Mullins still want the BL sore or not to make money on.
                its going to really hurt their bottom line,now if they switch and go with the NWHA,this would be a BIG BLACK EYE for the BIG LICK folks.

                  Who owns The Calsonic?

                  Comment


                  • its who runs it and that's the big question,part is run by the city of Shelbyville or was in 2012.

                    as long as the owners get their $$$$ they are not worried about the shows.is my guess.

                      • if you call the register of deeds in Bedford County they may be able to tell you or go to Calsonic Arena .com ormaybe you can call Tim Boyle 931-684-5915 exit 151.

                        Hope this helps you in your quest.

                        to answer one of your queries the Industrial Development Board of Shelbyville ran part of it in 2012.

                        so I have been told.

                              As far as I understand, the Calsonic is owned by the City of Shelbyville. At least that's what I've been told.

                                Well, the four HIOs that are making the PHA are the four HIOs who have received decertification letters from the USDA.

                                But here's the thing: as far as I understand, the USDA is no longer accepting new HIOs. I don't see how they're going to get away with this.

                                      • Agreed, aarpaso. I wish that I had been invited and able to ask questions!

                                        Two questions that posters here might be able to answer:

                                        1. Why are flat shod horses banded?

                                        2. The presenter talks about the proposed legislation outlawing 6 of the eight divisions. Is that a fair assessment or are 6 of the divisions going to have certain action devices outlawed: the divisions may continue?

                                        Not a TWH person myself, but I would suggest that if the participants at that clinic can be identified a few TWH owners who agree with the proposed legislation send them a letter giving the facts as they know them to be. Just a thought.
                                        They don't call me frugal for nothing.

                                        • correct me if im wrong folks.

                                          but its my understanding the bands are on the flat shod due to the length of the toe.if the weight of the shoe is great the hoof can and does break off at that band in some cases,these are called action devices.

                                          only those folks that do not use pads and or action devices will show is my guess.
                                          this whole video is just another way for TWHNC to try and get folks to back them.
