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!

    Re: BSE vandalism: They'd rather see a horse in a pasture with a broken leg than standing around, taking a nap in Central Park. They don't care one bit about animal welfare. They only care about their agenda.

    Their true colors shine right through.

      As I keep saying-- PEOPLE LIKE THESE ARE DANGEROUS. They really are. People like this will maim or kill to make a point. Or will vandalize or commit arson-- it has happened before elsewhere.

            From the FB page: "

            For the past year we have been visited late at night in our fields where many of our herd are turned out by someone or maybe more, who tie bizarre knots in our horses hair. In the beginning we thought it is probably a disgruntled volunteer that has been asked to leave. We have been attacked before by disgruntled volunteers before mainly by wild untrue abuse or neglect reports made out to the State or slanderous lies on the internet...all of which we are used too.

            There are only a couple so it isn't hard to figure out who causes the unnecessary trouble. We have also been threatened by the Radical Animals Activists...most notably W.A.R. from NYC. They hate us and have threatened to come and "teach us a lesson". For all these things we have notified the authorities and we watch and document each incident in the event that one day we can finally put an end to it.

            Lately it has taken a turn for the worse and whoever is doing it should be put on notice that we are tired of it and we are going to find out and persecute. Over this past week-end our horses were let out of the pasture...thankfully most were unaware...those that figured it out made their way into the barn and destroyed it. We all know horses are vandals in that they love to touch, pull down, rip open, pull apart, turn over, step on, poop on, destroy EVERYTHING they can get their lips on. Well they did all of that AND 3 of our biggest horses Iceman, Tom Too and Cami made it onto the poop truck! This was the most dangerous incident that night. It was scary and extremely stressful removing them carefully so they didn't fall off. All of them could have been seriously hurt or killed...not to mention what could have happened if they got out on the street!"

            Doesn't sound so much like vandalism as it does trespassing and mischief but still uncalled for. Especially letting horses out of their pasture. That is downright dangerous and could not only get the horses killed, but also some innocent person that happens to be driving by if they made their way into the road.

              sounds like they need a donation of a set of serious game cameras....
              (personally I am also in favor of shotguns, but that's Alabama style...)

                Funny you should say that, it also says on the page they are taking donations for security cameras.

                I'm a shotgun kinda girl myself too. Also a big, scary dog kinda girl.

                Hope they get their cameras, actually I think I'll pop back over to their page and send them a dribble to help them along.

                I can't stand hearing stories about those damn RARAs trespassing for the sake of their "cause". Would serve them right if someone broke into each of their homes and relieved themselves right on their dining room table.

                  The only reason they haven't gone further is because they have to screw up the courage to do it.... and they will.

                  Look, I've said this before, It's well worth saying it again: W.A.R. has the same agenda as SHAC, and is piloting the NYC protests. SHAC is linked with ALF. Anyone who beleives "W.A.R." isn't associated with SHAC/ALF because they said so on their website is not only naive, but arguably stupid.

                  What BSE needs to do is not only report it to their local law enforcement, they need to report it to their local FBI field office as potential ALF activity; ALF is a known terrorist organization with members in prison serving 20 year sentences for Arson.

                  The FBI really needs to know about these incidents. They want domestic terror groups squashed just like the rest of us. They're americans just like we are, who beleive in the same laws we all want to live by. They're only intimidating when you're breaking the law, not when you're asking for help :=)

                    To BSE: I will NOT share the road! You people are cruel to take your horses on pavement! Why are horses allowed on the road at all? Get them off the road and get people off their backs and out of carriages being pulled by these poor creatures. The only reason that people take their horses on road is the "look at me" attitude that all horse riders have, they are a menace to other road users and bring shame to the people who really love horses! The place for horses in in the field, not the road. Besides, isn't riding just another way of exploiting them, also? I say we call for a ban on ALL activities that "use" horses. The key word here is "use". They should all be allowed to be free of stupid humans!"

                    I know there are lots of people who don't believe their intent goes beyond carriage horses but it does. ^^
                    This warrants quotation... more than once. ALL horsepeople NEED to be aware of these fruitbats, so they can see their true colors. I am so glad that we now have their real agenda in writing. Please post a link to this quote. I would like to screen shot it.

                    ETA: Looks like it's already been deleted. Open mouth, insert foot. Way to alienate all the people who actually know a thing or two about horses and the millions of riders out there.

                      That page also has this gem on it right now:

                      Carrie Gobernatz RESCUES all over the country will step up to take in a NEW YORK Carriage Horse. I bet if we started calling them allover the USA we would have a waiting list. Has anyone set this up yet ?

                      I'm so sure rescues will be falling all over themselves to take in useful horses instead of the ones that actually need rescuing. Morons.

                        Anyone that would line up in hopes of taking a horse (like that twit suggests), that:

                        a) doesn't need rescuing
                        b) already has a job
                        c) has an owner taking perfectly good care of it, that does not want to give it up and
                        d) has NO legal reason to be taken from its owner in the first place

                        Is an asshole and a thief. Nothing more, nothing less.

                        ETA: I really, really feel for the carriage horse owners. I just could not imagine listening to this crap for years on end. If I were in their shoes, and if for some ungodly reason these freaks were able to pull of getting this ban put in place I honest to god would consider hiding my horses somewhere several states away, or even putting them down before I'd hand them over to these lunatics. Calling for these horses to be taken from their owners when there is no abuse taking place, simply because THEY don't like seeing a horse having a job, is beyond unconstitutional. Fascist scumbags.

                          Come on GGR, what rescue wouldn't want a 1600 pound young horse that it can't ever adopt out?

                          I almost responded with a link to one example of a horse that actually needs to be rescued to point out what rescues are up against, but why bother. They don't care.

                          This is what I'm talking about though, makes the carriage horses look like they're doing alright. Yes the pasture life worked out real well for this blind mare: http://bhfer.wordpress.com/

                            Good lord that poor mare. Nope, I'm sure they wouldn't give two hoots about her (unless you hitched her up to a carriage and put her in Central Park).

                            Seriously, I hope it works out for that mare even if it means just putting her down. Poor gal.

                              I'm blocked from that page but the poster might be interested in knowing that in some states horses have the right of way over vehicles. IOW if a person driving a car causes harm to a horse and rider the driver is in trouble.

                              People in cars can't run over horses any more than they can run over bicyclists or pedestrians

                                      There is already a page on facebook just for the purpose of posting lies found on the radical anti-carriage pages and posting your comments that get deleted from them along with the rara posts you were trying to address.

                                      The page is called
