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, without doing an intense study, it looks as if we'll need health certificates any time we cross state lines?

      Edited to add - it does look like coggins tests are considered acceptable for these guidelines, which I think are federal. There are still states that require health certificates, New Jersey and Pennsylvania being two that we travel to regularly.

          Who are they kidding when they say a health certificate costs between $4 and $7.50? I pay $28 if I truck my pony to my vet. And I have to get multiples throughout the season because they only last 30 days.

              Stupid beyond words.

              An look what it does to the person who lives near the state line and just about everything he does is across the line!

              And there are lots of us.

              And if you are in a very small state like MD, DEck , CN, NH, you are across the line if you step off your front porch.

              We just must do something to get our out of control government back under control.

              If we do not wish to lose our freedom, we must learn to tolerate our
              neighbor's right to freedom even though he might express that freedom
              in a manner we consider to be eccentric.

              Protect your privacy. Replace Google with https://startpage.com/


              Repeal the 17Th Amendment.
              Senators appointed by the states will end federal mandates that destroy state sovereignty.

              Return to the states the control of their schools, medical care, etc.

                You need to push your states for the 6 month health certificate- Equine Interstate passport. They are recognized by many states out here in the mid-west. When I worked at a vet clinic the doc charged $50 or $75 for that one, I can't remember the exact fee. It was popular with barrel races and endurance riders who were on the road a lot. Here is a link but either is isn't up to date or things have changed because KS, OK and NE did accept them last year. https://www.usrider.org/EquestrianMotorPlan.html

                  Explains why the USA is upside down right now perfectly doesn't it?? The govt concluded those were the fees horse owners pay for a HC; ideology at $4 verses $28 reality.

                    this just popped on WTOP:

                    Va., W.Va. participate in new horse travel permit

                    Monday - 1/14/2013, 9:20am ET

                    RICHMOND, Va. - Virginia and West Virginia are among more than a dozen states participating in a new interstate travel permit for horse events.

                    Virginia state veterinarian Dr. Richard Wilkes says the Equine Interstate Event Permit allows horses and their owners to travel to events in participating states for six months. The permit can be used in lieu of a 30-day certificate of veterinary inspection.

                    The permit can be obtained from an accredited veterinarian.

                    Other participating states include Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and New York.

                      Nothing new or bad in here. Coggins is considered a valid substitute of any specific identity, e.g. AIN, brand inspection, tattoo. And the major justification for this is that the horses are transported, ridden or driven, and then returned home (Page 2054).

                      Also on page 2042, they acknowledge that a majority of horse owners are already in compliance with the laws with vaccination and Coggins.

                      The only requirement for health certificates is for BREEDER CATTLE (that is the only mention of health certificate in the entire document). And those are already required in the 48 lower states.

                      The only requirement for health certs is what already exist form state-to-state. Maybe we, out west already are used to all this given the cattle requirements that are automatically placed on horses.
