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!

      I can't believe they are deleting and blocking everyone, how incredibly immature. I was going to post on there but didn't even bother after reading through here. When I went to the photo, it had a thing that said it had 53 comments on it...but in reality there are only 6, all others have been deleted. Geez!!

        Here is the latest that they posted on here after deleting everyone's comments. They even want everyone to give MichalFlynn their regards (their popular insult is to call her Jabba the Hut along with a few other insults).
        Carriage Horse Cruelty to all of you who are here to challenge this photo, you are making many false assumptions. No one said that the horse vomited..dum-dums, people who are sick throw up on city streets all the time. Just as a reminder, this page is not being hosted so that you can come and defend the animal abusers and exploiters who drive carriage horses. It is a community for people who believe that the carriage industry is inherently cruel and abusive. So, beat it, you have no business here. Give Jabba our regards, or rather our disregards.

        Carriage Horse Cruelty by the way, for those of you wondering what the last post was all about, a group of carriage industry supporters, all came to the page within the last couple of hours to school us on horse physiology. Apparently they all had the same thought (that we were claiming that the horse vomited and was eating his own vomit) at the exact same time and ran here (some even created new facebook pages, just to be able to post here....lol) to correct us. Unfortunately, they didnt bother to read the thread or the comment that started the thread. Guess they are better at horse physiology than reading comprehension.

            yeah, wow... if you're not posting something about effing this or oh they're so cruel to the pwetty horsies they should be free in a pasture then you get deleted. That particular thread was mild compared to a couple of the others... did anyone see the one on the Seattle horses? Yikes. These people are unbelieveable.

            All I said was to the effect of, he looks like he's sniffing something, not eating it...sniffing does not equal eating, and horses eat off the ground anyway. Now I'm a carriage driver that defends animal abusers.

              Completely rediculous. I posted yesterday that it looked like the horse was eating and apple and I didn't get why he looked sick. That is REALLY tame for me and not offensive at all IMO, but guess who is now blocked. Idiots....

                I really think it is time to stop doing them the courteesy of calling them RARAs.

                In fact they are Fanatical Animal Rights Terrorists as revealed by their rejection of fact and logic and their direct interference with innocuous business owners solely due to their warped agenda.

                I will refer to them as RARAs / FARTs from now on, and from my perspective the acronym is perfectly descriptive.

                      Idk what that is on the ground. Could be apples and carrots but the horse is just sniffing not eating it and I don't think a driver would park next to puke and stand right by it either. Anyways, I have seen some bad horse care in carriage horses in certain places. Horse noticeable lame to someone that knows a lame horse. Some to skinny and shouldn't really be pulling a 8 person carriage around etc. I have also seen amazingly cared for carriage horses that are rotated and happy seeming horses. There are good and bad in all the world. Even the horse world. There Billy Bob down the road that doesn't feed his horse or Sally Joe that doesn't have their feet done. It's what it is and to jump on all of the industry is like jumping on every horse owner because some butt head doesnt care for his so we shouldn't have them either.

My dogs also puke and eat their own puke, and eat horse poop. That's what they do. Saying my dogs eat their own puke because they're abused and I am a horrible person is absurd. Dogs also bring home dead stuff and roll in horse poop. They're DOGS.
                            My old horse loved watermelon. The RARAs would probably freak - "OMG! He's bleeding from the mouth!"

                                    Not even me in the video! Taped and posted by some other abusive pro-horse-abuse-propaganda-maker, no doubt... I just youtube searched "horse slobbering" and there it was.

                                      How about this winner, mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio's FB supporters threw up the same photo of the horse in Pa NOT even NYC and the following statement on their FB page;

                                      "Rather than use feed bags, New York City carriage horse drivers throw the horses feed into the gutter, where they lap up their own urine, pigeon droppings, dirt and whatever other bacteria laden substances have accrued there. While Christine Quinn, along with Bloomberg, staunchly support this foul business, Bill de Blasio has promised to rid this city of this blot on it."

                                      Guber is right, I mean the horse in the photo midway down the page the bay isn't even a photo of an NYC carriage horse its in PA for cripes sake.
