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!

    Hate that coat, hate bling, hate her makeup. IMHO, she looks very trashy.

      gotta say to missing the point in some cases

      katie has a huge following and now has taken up dressage
      not the best role model in the world but--
      if it encourages dressage to move forwards and get recongised more
      or that equine sports as whole gets published more and in the eye of the public

      then hopefully more prize money more to do, equine sport isnt in the same legue as footy
      players and doesnt earn so much attention nor money etc

      she might be little miss pink as loves pink
      and she might have bigger assets than most females and she might love the bling and speak her mind
      she not that out ragoeus

      but she has a huge following if it helps to get equine sports and publised better then who cares


      • #23
        I love it! And I love her. Like Coreene, I adore the bling. And I think she seems to have a pretty good seat, I've seen other pics of her riding.

        Then again, "E" is my favorite TV channel and I waste my money on Star/OK/Hello/Us Weekly/etc etc etc every week...
        You can't have everything. Where would you put it all?


        • #24
          I think she looks like she is having fun!

          Besides, who said dressage riders can't have boobs?

          Ride on!

            • #26
              Eh, I think dressage could use a healthy dose of fun! It's pretty clear it's an exhibition, so methinks some folks' knickers are needlessly in a twist.


              • #27
                I love sparkles, so I love her coat. I would not ever wear it in competition, but at an exhibition ride, absolutely! As I will some day be the little old blue haired lady in sequin covered hats and shirts, my taste is certainly questionable.

                  When you take away the bling and implants, this is working-class girl who loves horses and wants to keep the horse dream alive in kids who grow up without money and connections. She parlayed her best-selling bio into a contract for a line of horse-and-pony care books for kids. How cool is that?
                  Ah I love Katie, She's got 7 horses I think...

                  In case others hadn't noticed.. the sole AIM of this forum is for people to post things then the hens get into a right flap about it, clucking and squarking and sh|tting on everything. It's no true reflection on real life.

                    I like it. Looks like it was a fun show under the lights.

                      Originally I thought "Blech!".

                      Then I thought about it a bit longer and realized if she had worn a tradition/'real' shad and top hat etc., I would dis her for putting all that on when she is nowhere near that level a rider- ie having not 'earned the right to wear it' (and for that matter neither have nor will I ever either).

                      So I realize in my book she loses either way and that maybe I need to take things just a tad bit less seriously.

                        Wanna bet? I think it absolutely is a reflection on real life--some folks just aren't happy unless they have something to piss and moan about. The 'net just gives then a 24/7 forum to do so!

                        Not that this particular observation is horse related...


                        • #32
                          too much?

                          No, she's at the NEC in Birmingham England...the bling looks good.
                          Went to see "Strickly Come Dancing" there which is their version of "Dancing with the Stars." You need a lot of makeup to be seen in a large arena like that. Maybe more people would watch dressage if we spiced it up a bit.


                          • #33
                            I actually don't mind it. I like the idea of Dressage not being so stuffy. I too agree that her outfit seems in keeping with the "show" aspect of the performance.

                            I would like to see more options in frocks, instead of the same ole black and blue.


                            • #34
                              She got my attention, and didn't need the makeup, either!

                                  32 FF, more like.

                                  I don't have a problem with the bling or the makeup, but wear a f(*&ing shirt and stock, for chrissakes! What's next - Chippendales' dancers riding topless? Sorry, y'all, but that kind of publicity this sport does not need!

                                  And I'll bet the two guys rode rings around her. And no one noticed.

                                    Equibrit too funny, I don't think she has accomplished anything..at least in dressage. Didn't she show in a non rated show and the poor women had an onslot of people filming her, in what was close to an intro or training level test? I don't even think it was a dressage show...wasn't it an eventing show? Someone feel free to correct me, I was just googling her so I could have gotten the facts mixed up.

                                    The stock tie was mentioned. I don't know about anyone else but I can do without having to wear that(while I am riding). Basically my stock tie keeps the sweat from running down my "AA", not quite the same league as the person of this topic.

                                      Put *something* underneath the coat and scrape off some of the makeup. The idea isn't bad, it's just overdone to the point of being trashy.

                                        That's sort of the basis of her whole career amastrike, considering that she started out as a topless model. Although mostly these days she is an author/model/business woman.

                                        I really dislike the whole culture of celebrity she is part of for but I can't help liking her. Like a few other posters have said she's got a reputation as being very down to earth and she's a hard worker who's not afraid to put herself out there so she has the potential to do a lot for the popularity of the sport. I bet she gets to be a pretty good dressage rider in the end too.

                                          Just because she started out as a glorified prostitute doesn't mean she needs to keep acting that way.
