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!

    Stablemates in Mt Airy MD is doing 20% off store wide though Sunday. Plus, I they have some great stuff in their "clearance" section in the back (20% doesn't apply to that stuff though).

    But I did find a Ariat down winter jacket for almost 50%! Marked down to $60 from $112

                I wonder if it depends on what you buy? I tried to get it to stack for a blanket and a few other items and it didn't work.

                  Maybe the 50% off codes at horze expired? I used it (SANTA1) on items that were already marked down and it went ok. That was early today.

                    I tried them earlier too.

                    Are you SURE that they're stacking? When I do it, it reverts the items back to full price and then discounts them. IE, the blanket I want was $150, but is on sale for $100...when I put the code in it shows up as $75. So the price goes down, but it's not 50% off the sale, unfortunately...

                        Thanks to VTO and Bit of Britain, I am significantly poorer today! But seriously, their sales are great. I love SmartPak for their generally good deals everyday, but their sales are pretty useless now. So much stuff is excluded that it just isn't a meaningful sale to me.

                        And I learned something interesting about SmartPak's price match yesterday. I live near a Dover and can easily physically go to the store, but in order to price match, SmartPak adds the shipping to calculate Dover's price (forcing the incorrect assumption that in order to take advantage of Dover's price, I'd need to be using mail order). So, with Dover's assinine shipping charges, the price match ends up being a bust for me too.

                        Oh we'll, Thanks to VTO and Bit of Britain, and Equus Now, I feel like I got a few good horsey deals for the holiday season.

                          The in-store price match was actually my one bad experience with SmartPak customer service. In MA, there is a Smartpak and a Dover within maybe 20 min of each other. I went to Smartpak and said "Hey, there is this item I'd like to buy from you, but Dover has it $20 cheaper."
                          "Okay, but once you add on shipping, it is more expensive than our price."
                          "Yes but the store is 20 minutes away and I'll just drive there..."
                          "Not going to price match, sorry."

                          So I drove 20 minutes and bought the item for Dover's $20 cheaper price. And then promptly went home, and wrote an email to Smartpak about how stupid it is to not price match (without shipping) when the freaking competitor's store is one town over. They gave me a $20 credit, said they'd speak to that store, and all was well with the world.

                                It didn't stack for me. But, if the discount was less than 50%, it would take 50% off instead. So, the 80% item was 80% off, but the 10% ad 20% items were marked down 50%.

                                I ordered a bit that was 10%. So, instead of $40 it was $36. I then used the SANTA1 code, and the bit was marked as $20, not $18.

                                Hope that makes sense!

                                  I'm with you. That's what's happening to me. But folks earlier swore the discounts STACKED.... not that the site always took the higher discount?!

                                    I really hope so! Just make sure that when/if you order online, order from Smartpak! They have AMAZING costumer service! Dover's service is.... well.... way far from amazing.

                                      I wonder if there was a glitch that got corrected as I went back and my order shows that the sale price of what I bought (which was only 10% off) was the one that got discounted by 50%. But I only bought one thing...and it was in the wee hours of that first day, so that's what makes me think it might have been a glitch that got caught. I can't replicate it now!

                                      Jeffers Pet sent me a Cyber Monday e-mail and I'm not sure if it applies to the equine side as well. 15% tonight between 2 am and 5 am CST and then 10% the rest of the day tomorrow. This link should include the code and details:

                                        Another one - Cheshire Horse cyber Monday sale (cheshirehorse.com) is 15% off and free shipping with CYBERSAVE as the coupon code. Looks like it is already starting as I was able to use the code just now. Was waiting on this one as they are one of the few places that carries a supplement that I use. It looks like it excludes items "already on promotion" so I assume that means the code won't apply to stuff already on sale.

                                        • Gah! I pulled the trigger LAST NIGHT on my Jeffer's order. I just called to see if I could cancel and reorder on Monday. "Customer service" left MUCH the be desired. Gah!
