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!

  • Looking for Equine Photo Subjects near Savannah, GA

    Hi - my name is Dylan Wilson, and I am a photographer based in Savannah, Georgia. I'm currently working on a portrait project for my master's degree and am in need of more subjects.

    I'm interested in making photos like the ones here:


    But I also want to make some 'action portrait' photos (western riders performing sliding stops, English riders jumping, racers running, etc).

    If you, or someone you know, are near the Savannah, GA area and would be willing to volunteer your time, I would greatly appreciate it. I would be more than happy to give you prints of your horse.

    You can view more of my work here: www.dylanwilsonphotography.com

    And you can email me directly at dylan@dylanwilsonphotography.com

    Thanks in advance!

    I think the Savanna Carriage horses might make an interesting subject as it ties into your city.

      ...oh- and I looooove your naked cowboy series! (that's THE naked cowboy girls... not just random naked cowboys)

        Thanks for the reply. This photo series actually started because I was working with the Historic Savannah Carriage Tours company. All the horses in the photos are theirs.

                  Okay, I wasn't sure if you meant like..."under an hour" or "up to three hours" or whatnot. Anyway, me and my horse are just south of Augusta which is right at two hours from Savannah if you are interested in coming out that far.

                    contact finders keepers here on Coth. She works for a vet over in SC and they do a lot of the barns here and there.

                    And call Eleanor at Evermore Farm up in Brooklet. She has a website too. She has a riding program for GA Southern.

                    And of course there is my great vet, John Malark, up at Edisto Equine, yes it is within 2 hours drive of Savannah. Maybe he'll let you follow him and/or Sally Banner around to barns to see horses and take pix and videos.

                    And there's nice Courtney Squibb at Wicklow behind Johnny Harris Restaurant. Courtney is great. She used to be at the barn where my 2 were first boarded here. When she was a kid.

                    And contact the Coastal Hunter Circuit, they too have a website, for the next local show.

                    Lots of big barns over in Bluffton and Hilton Head. and Polo ponies as well. So PM Finderskeepers and ask her for info on all of them. She is great!

                    ETA And is Eddie Maple the former great jockey still over at one of the barns in Bluffton? If so, you can take pix of a hall of fame jockey as well as his horses.

                      Thanks for all the information! I'll definitely get in touch with Finderskeepers.


                      • Original Poster

                        Yes, Savannah in conveniently located near absolutely nothing. It's two hours to anywhere.

                        I'd love to photograph Kieran. Send me an email (dylan@dylanwilsonphotography.com) and we can work something out with our schedules.

                          'Within a couple hours'

                          Bummer... I'm more than that away... (in the Huntsville, AL area) but I have a 6 month old filly if you're interested in attempting to photograph a moving target

                            You could probably also see about finding some local shows in Aiken, SC that might be wanting a photographer (that might be more effort involved than you really want to get into though).

                            I'll email you tonight so we can hash things out.

                                  My horses are outside of Atlanta in Woodstock. If that's not too far for you, I'd be more than thrilled to have you shoot them (with your camera ) I'm 99% positive I could get more of our boarders involved, also. PM me if you don't think I am too far for you!

                                    Aiken, SC is apparently the fall polo capital of the world (or so I just learned on Friday). There should be a website that lists when the matches are. Good luck!

                                      Sad! I'll keep you in mind though. I've been meaning to get up to Muscle Shoals, so if that happens I'll let you know!

                                        I've thought about that. I have a connection at the University of Georgia, but when I emailed them, I got shut down.
