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 got an immediately answer from customer service when I asked for embroideredmonograms (not just words). First they said it was already available on the website (it's not). Then they immediately corrected themselves. It's apparently in the works. It won't be fancy once (like in a diamond or circle etc.) but they will apparently try to add basic monograms as an embroidery option. Good response to customer inquiry from them. Very timely and responsive!

        They are supposed to have a Black Friday sale tomorrow, but haven't seen any more info on it yet. Not clear if there will be a new code or just sale stuff on the website. I think the latest code (SANTA1) expired, didn't it?

        ETA: Just tried the SANTA1 code and it took it and showed everything in my cart at 50% off, although I didn't go all the way through checkout (was just trying the code -- I don't need to order more!). So if anyone is shopping today, might give it a try.

            I ordered a bunch more stuff this past week, including a monogrammed saddle pad. I'm intrested to see how it turns out!

            DH was joking with me, after seeing yet ANOTHER charge from them on our banking thingy. "They called their company Horze because that's what I'm going to have to turn you into, so you can afford to keep shopping there at the rate you do." He's a trick, that DH.

                  Just checked out their black Friday sale and was underwhelmed. Only about 5 things I saw were actually 80% off and only one of those was something I'd buy... But only the xl was on sale (and in unisex that'd be huge).
                  Maybe I was just really late to the party, but at 8am, I wouldn't expect that much to be sold out.
                  Almost all of the stuff was 20% off.
                  They spoiled us with those 50% sales!

                    I was at the party at 5am and the 80 percent off stuff wasn't even posted yet. It was a VERY short party

                      I could have sworn I saw the 80% off stuff last night? Maybe it was just in the email they sent. I just remember scrolling through and seeing nothing of interest.

                        Yep, I saw it last night too. Maybe just a page of stuff...from what I remember it was mostly clothing, so I didn't pay too much attention to it.

                          I just tried the SANTA1 code and it seems to still be working, though I haven't tried to check out yet.

                            Was on there just now, if you click on the Black Friday ad on the home page, it takes you to a bunch of stuff and on the left side, you can select by discount. When I choose 80%, there are only a few things remaining. There were more items when I was on there last night, so I suspect some are sold out. And I do think they were all clothing items.

                              It may have been there and I didn't see it. Their website isn't organized intuitively IMHO.

                                  For those asking about shipping and refund times...

                                  Order #1 placed 11/12 (no embroidery)
                                  Order #2 received 11/14 (2 days later)
                                  Return placed in the mail via UPS 11/17
                                  Refund received today 11/28 (11 days)

                                  Order #2 placed 11/16 (one item with embroidery)
                                  Hasn't arrived yet (12 days later)

                                  So either the embroidery really delays them or the shipping is inconsistent. Even taking into account delay for thanksgiving, the second order is way behind.

                                    I have a feeling they are probably just overwhelmed by all of the ordering. Although, I dont know what else they would have expected with such AWESOME deals

                                    I will say though, every CS interaction I've had with them has been very helpful and friendly, and that's what matters to me the most.

                                      Yes, not unexpected delay. And I do have one embroidered item. But just keeping others in the loop about the variableness of shipping.

                                        I've found the same thing. My first order (3 items) arrived in less than a week.

                                        I placed an order with one embroidered item (saddle pad) and four other items about a week and a half ago and still nothing. In all fairness, it did say 7-10 days before it would be shipped when I checked out so I can't get too antsy yet. I'm excited to see the quality of the embroidery!
