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!

    The information presented here affects all of those of us that don't follow animal rights groups like HSUS and PETA as they are attacking all we do with our animals on many fronts, trying as hard as they can to eventually eliminate all uses of all animals:
    "One generation and no more domestic animals and none too soon for me" , as the HSUS president used to say, until it became a bit less than PC to show his hand, applies to what they do, think about that.

    To attack the carriage horses is not because animal rights people care either way for the horses, but because they want all uses eliminated.
    That means all of our uses also, eventually.

    Hope that helped explain this better for you.
    Bluey, you and I can disagree and do so without names and reporting to mods. I don't believe HSUS is seeking to take away domestic animals, I got our last dog from their local facility. It is a red herring issue that I do not see nor believe. HSUS has been around a long time and their issues are not to take away my animals. The carriage horse industry has used that red herring tactic to garner support for their industry.

    Thanks Bluey, alas we disagree but thanks for your explanation.

      Seriously, give it a rest.
      I couldn't care less what your stance on anything is, but it is really well past humerus the way you always pop up in Michaelynn's threads...not contributing anything to the topic but - yeah, you do - attack her.

      Don't play the victim. Because you are not.

      You got your attention for the night, why don't you call it a day?

      Just to add:

        Really? The HSUS doesn't has any local shelters, do check with whoever you got your dog and they may give you an earful about THAT!

        I have worked with our local shelter for years and we are not very fond of the HSUS taking in all those millions and when we go ask for donations, people tell us they already donated, responding to the HSUS letter asking for money, that sounded like it came from us!

        Hard to explain to the public that no, the HSUS is not an animal shelter of any kind, they are just a de facto lobbying arm of animal rights, those mailings are a sham.
        And yes, animal rights is all about taking away everyone's animals, learn more about it.

          SV how could you have gotten your dog from the HSUS's local facility when they do not run nor are they directly affiliated with local Humane Societies?

          Its an honest question not a dig... which facility do they affiliate with ?

            Also SV if nobody is out to take anyones animals away can you please explain to me and the masses why the bills to Ban/Abolish the NYC carriage trade also come with legislation remanding the horses into homes other then their current owners ?

            Intro Bill 670 is nothing more then a clever disguised aid to force carriage horses out of the city. Something that you have publicly lobbied for.

            "1. The owner shall sell or donate the horse to a private individual who signs an assurance that the horse
            will not be sold and shall be kept solely as a companion animal and not employed in another horse-drawn
            carriage business or as a work horse and will be cared for humanely for the remainder of the horse's natural life;
            or
            2. The owner shall sell or donate the horse to a duly incorporated animal sanctuary or duly incorporated
            animal protection organization whose president or executive director signs an assurance that the horse will not
            be sold and shall be kept solely as a companion animal and not employed in another horse-drawn carriage
            business and will be cared for humanely for the remainder of the horse's natural life."


            Note that NYC Administrative Code Title 17 Chapter 3 Subchapter 3 defines "work" as being presented for riding or driving, being harnessed for driving or saddled for riding, or being ridden or driven.

            How is that piece of legislation NOT taking away privatized animals? Shouldn't it be up to the owners what happens to their horses should there ever come a day when the industry closes ?

              Do you read other posts on COTH? There are other people who post on COTH that make current legisltation known, often voicing their opinions on the legislation. Is it to support their business? Maybe not as directly as this particular instance but transportation bills, horse identifcation laws, land use laws, agriculture use laws... yes that is affecting people's BUSINESS. Many people who post here on COTH use horses as their BUSINESS.

              She is not promoting her business. Nowhere in that post did she offer a carriage ride, give a link to coupons for a ride, post her phone number, carriage number, etc. It's not like NYC is a secret place and we couldn't find the carriages if we wanted to support the business. Heck, everyone with a business on COTH pretty much has a sig line with their business info, so in effect everyone is promoting their business with every single post they make. I like it. It's called networking.

              I still don't understand why someone can't post the information and just get remarks like, "Thanks for posting the info." geez. What is so hard about it?

                  Not HSUS but an interesting read on the reluctance of NJSPCA to create local chapters.

                        Our local Humane Society is funded but not entirely by HSUS. I do support HSUS as I have said and I also support the local rescue. HSUS is not attempting to take away any animals, as I have previously stated.

                        The carriage industry, I am not a proponent and if carriage horses left NYC I don't really care. I would never have a horse in that urban of an environment, I would never have children there either.

                        Oldpony66-You may not see someone who works for NYC Carriage Industry (she does not own carriages and horses)as promoting her business but I do and asking people to write to politicians and business owners on her businesses behalf is clearly promoting her business, she does not sell clothes, her job is to promote the carriage industry and get people to advocate for the carriage industry. Most people on here do not promote their business and no I have not read posts asking people to write politicians on their businesses behalf.

                        You all can disparage HSUS, and heaven help you if someone disagrees.

                                    Thinking that SV is Elizabeth F. is a pretty far stretch. I've "hung out" with SV on other COTH threads, such as the Adult Rider's Support Group, and I'd bet money she's NOT Elizabeth. And oddly, enough, I've had some Facebook exchanges with Elizabeth, and have not been banned from her "No Walk in the Park" page. People are entitled to their opinions. Over the years, I've learned a lot from this BB. I've had my opinions changed, my attitude and actions questioned, and been wacked upside the head a few times.

                                    Every once in a while, I play the "if I won the lottery" game in my head, and one of the things I'd do is take SV and a few other anti-carriage people to NYC and BlueStar for a weekend. I'm 90% convinced they'd return home as carriage supporters.
                                    It's 2017. Do you know where your old horse is?

                                      ETA: I've 'talked' on a couple of 'their' FB pages also. I haven't been banned, or rather, wasn't banned. My posts were deleted when I attempted to clarify why a carriage horse had foam at his bit, plus tried to clarify why horses cock up a hind leg when resting. They don't want to know why a horse does something natural and normal. Some cat lady in MI went all hysterical over the foam mouthed horse, now HER posts were allowed to stand, but, the horsewoman (me and a couple others) who tried to educate (nicely I might add, just like we'd talk to a newbie horse owner), my posts were deleted.

                                        Pacelle said that several times, it was his go to phrase, that one time in that one interview is the time he was quoted directly, but it was common for him to express that sentiment and similar ones.

                                        The past few years, with the internet educating people about who the HSUS really is, they are backpedalling and trying to put a different face, it is not PC to say directly we want all animal use abolish, so they are going at it thru the back door, not so much up front, in your face as they used to.

                                        Sorry, you can defend them all you want, but you can't change who they are.

                                        And no, to the poster that said their local shelter where she got her dog is supported by the HSUS, sorry, that doesn't fly either, they just don't, ask the ones running it.

                                          I am aware of the context of the quote, and I repeat "the extinction of domestic animals" he does not specify cattle, or any specific breeds of cattle, he is referring to ALL domestic animals. Please read the quote by his cohort JP Goodwin that I posted.
