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!

  • Horses for Obama

    Our horses were very sad to hear that they would not be allowed to vote in the upcoming election. At 16, Willy is too young to register. Beau is old enough, but lacks a driver's license to get himself to the polling place. He could take the bus, but it might make the other passengers uncomfortable. They were anxious to do their part, though, so we found a way for them to support their candidate.
    Enjoy the pictures and don't forget to vote!

      A few girls from my college's Young Democrats club went canvassing on horseback for Obama. I thought it was a pretty cool way to get the word out. Here's the article http://www.newsadvance.com/lna/news/...ck_obama/8628/

        My horses aren't old enough to vote either but I have friends with horses from 22 to 31. When asked they said they wouldn't vote for that sucker for ANYTHING!!! Well one did say "maybe dogcatcher."
        Smart horses.

              Well both mine are Canadian, and far too young, so they'll have no vote, but, seeing as the first word in Buddy's registered name is Barrack, if they could, they'd vote for him just for his name....

                  Really? Mine say they are voting for Obama because they can't stand foul-tempered old greys.

                  Bram's the only one of mine old enough, and luckily our polling place is close enough to hack to.

                    OK...I'm ready for the flames....but as a "liberal conservative" who feels that national security is a crucial part of our safety in these uncertain times, and who wants to KEEP the money I've earned, and not hand it over to be distributed to people who do not and will not work, I am stating my support for McCain and Palin.
                    I hope the nation does not elect a candidate who's public distain for the military is well known. Perhaps the military need not protect that candidate!
                    Because I come from an agricultural background, I like to support candidates who understand and support farming and ranching (that means farmers can keep their land and profits)...usually they are conservatives.
                    But that's what I love about the US...we have elections, and we can choose for ourselves. We are not required to check out opinions at the door here, and I commend the folks who excercised their rights to support by using their horses. That's clever.
                    Whatever your choice, get out and vote. It's our right, thank goodness!

                      On the other hand, my horses have the same kind of attitude as he does, "whats mine is mine, and what's yours is mine too, as long as I am smart enough to steal it!"

                          MachTwo thanks for your opinion, but this is a horse BB and it isn't off topic day. So most importantly, who is your horse voting for? My mare is voting for Obama because his economic plans will leave me with more money toward jumping lessons and stud muffins. She is also an arabian so she was really excited to vote for a comrade but then I showed her snopes.com and now she understands he's an American and still wants to vote for him.

                              Oh! My bad! My horse is 21, and he would vote for McCain/Palin.

                              National Security...Check
                              Clean House on government Spending....check
                              Lipstick...check.

                                My mule is half-assed....he's embarrassed to be the symbol of "Noboma's" party.

                                Of course he's being selfish, he doesn't want his grain going to a non-working full ass.

                                  My TBs are most certainly voting for Obama. They cannot stand hot headed, irrational, act-before-you-think, old greys. They feel much safer in the barn when a calm, wise, open-minded barn manager is in charge.

                                    Your TBs will think differently once their calm, smooth talking BM starts sharing their oats with other horses in the barn that don't pull their own weight.

                                      My guy said if he was old enough to vote (7 yr. Arab) he would vote the the old guy!! See he has to work hard at his dressage lessons and wants to keep at the great stuff that comes with a hard working if not spoiled dressage horse! And feels that why should the lazy pasture statute get the goodies for not having to work for it. Oh and since he is accident prone... he likes being able to call the vet and having him come right out to treat is lastest boo boo and not have to wait 6 weeks because the all the lazy pasture statutes are also there....since they don't have to work they can stand in line all day. And since he is a insecure kinda guy (arabs..lol ) he likes know his home will be protected. Though the "other one" has some goodpoints he feels better knowing he could keep all the goodies he's work for and his health care and feeling safe in his small little world!! Though these are the opinions of my horse I understand that we could get flamed.....but then we are used to it when we go it the local shows...lol as the Q.H. ,T.B.s and W.Bs always give that "look".....lol
