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!

  • Paul Newman 1925-2008

    Paul Newman has died of cancer:

    Newman's Own statement:

    Paul Newman's craft was acting. His passion was racing. His love was his family and friends. And his heart and soul were dedicated to helping make the world a better place for all.

    "Paul had an abiding belief in the role that luck plays in one's life, and its randomness. He was quick to acknowledge the good fortune he had in his own life, beginning with being born in America, and was acutely aware of how unlucky so many others were. True to his character, he quietly devoted himself to helping offset this imbalance.

    "An exceptional example is the legacy of Newman's Own. What started as something of a joke in the basement of his home, turned into a highly-respected, multi-million dollar a year food company. And true to form, he shared this good fortune by donating all the profits and royalties he earned to thousands of charities around the world, a total which now exceeds $250 million. ...
    Of course, to us, he's Clea Newman's dad. Our condolences to the family. He lived an amazing life, and we were lucky to have him in the horse world.
    If you are allergic to a thing, it is best not to put that thing in your mouth, particularly if the thing is cats. - Lemony Snicket

    I agree, a wonderful elegant man. The Butch Cassidy he created will always be one of my favorites, and he sure did look nice on a horse!

        An amazing actor.

          Always one of my favorite actors. A beautiful man, both in the physical sense (I agree, those eyes!), and because of all he did for others, and a talented actor as well. I think I need to go rent The Sting today - DH has never seen it.

            I have a great Paul Newman story!

            I grew up riding a few minutes from Gladstone in the 70's-80's. Every year, we used to go and watch USET finals with my trainer. Of course, Clea was a staple in the Eq ring. Beautiful rider. Typically, both her mom and dad would watch. They would stand on opposite sides of the ring. Her mom always had a big sun bonnet. You could pick her out because of the big sunglasses and hat.

            Well, my mom has very poor vision and would walk closer to the ring to watch while most of us would sit on bleachers behind her. Sure enough, one year she plops herself right next to Paul Newman. She turned around at one point to check on me and we all were waving to get her attention.
            And it went something like this...
            "Oh, well nice to meet you!"

            Godspeed Mr. Newman. You were a great horse show dad!

              I met Paul at a horseshow years ago...he was with Joanne, Jill Ireland and Charles Bronson. What a nice group of people! And yes you could see Paul's eyes from a mile away..and yes Charles Bronson was very short..all were defenately not your typical Hollyweirds. Sad that he died..very gifted actor and human being.

                  what a sad loss for all. I live about 10 minutes down the road from his Hole in the Wall Gang Camp. What an amazing place that is. Quite the sanctuary for those kids!

                  While the news of Paul's death is just comming out now, i believe his death actually occured a week or two ago. It was kept a secret from the press and everything. The rumour has been rolling around our town for over a week now. I dont know if its true or not-but it certaintly may well have been.

                  He lived a wonderful life and had so much to be proud of. Amazing Actor, father, and husband he was. I dont think ive ever seen anyone as generous as he.

                      They don't make 'em like that anymore.

                      Thanks for everything, Mr. Newman. Godspeed.

                        That guy was a class act! I like to think that he did what all people need to do--he gave back to society, and not in a small way.... Thank you, Mr. Newman....

                          All my thoughts and prayers to the Ms. Woodward and their children (Nell and Clea?). I met Clea once at fund raiser for Pegasus Therapeutic Riding and she was very nice. I saw her with her father shopping during the fund raiser which was at Anthropologie in Westport. Yes, he was unmistakeable. Very blue eyes and not too tall. He has done many most excellent things for this world.

                            Man what a bummer to lose a beacon of goodness like Paul Newman. Nope no great stories to tell, never met the man, but followed his on screen and off screen life and thought how great it would be if all could be so generous and kind as he was.

                            RIP Mr. Newman, sadly missed but greatly admired.

                              The world has lost a true icon - actor, philanthropist, family man, and horseman

                              My mom still talks about the year she was in the (long) coffee line at Harrisburg right in front of Paul Newman, and they chatted away the whole time. She was amazed at how down-to-earth and friendly he was, and most of their conversation was about daughters, equitation, and why it was taking so long to get a cup of coffee...but most of all she was transfixed by his beautiful blue eyes.

                              My sincere condolences to his family and friends on the loss of this remarkable man.

                                Paul was my first crush... only now can I see why my Mom thought I had a strange Lolita complex since I was about 12 or 13 at the time.
                                He led a life of such integrity and honor, used his celebrity to help the disadvantaged and remained loyal to his wife and family. What an icon, my condolences to his family, they have to feel proud of the legacy that he left behind.

                                  Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is my all time favorite movie. My mom was so upset to hear he had died. We lost a great actor and a great man. God Bless Him.

                                    Godspeed, Mr. Newman. We've lost one of the truly great human beings. He took a talent, made a fortune and gave it away to so many. He was a real man--married to the same woman, devoted father, philanthropist. One of those guys you wish you could meet--but they're one of a kind. We are a poorer world.

                                    He died Friday, not a week ago...

                                      I've always admired him for his incredible talent, his immensely appealing looks but especially for his philanthropy. He didn't just talk the talk, he walked the walk. What a very generous and kind soul and I wish his family all the comfort in the world.

                                        Paul Newman was a class act. Let's hope this thread can reflect that.
