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 have a couple...two of the cookies ones and one that says "If it's not a morgan, it's just a horse." lol

    A horsey bumper sticker did help us find our way to Equine Affiare a couple weekends ago...The lady in front of us had one that said "Proud owner of a pretty but useless horse" Or something of the sort.

    So if you're a lady out there with a gold car and a couple bumper stickers with a Mass license plate...thanks for the directions! My friend and I were sitting in the car, asking eachother, what are the chances she's going there, should we just follow her?

    But anyway...there are some good ones out there.

      I have the cookie's dressage horse on my truck back window and the large dressage horse silloettes (sp?) on the back of the trailer ramp. My personal favorite is a friend's bumper sticker, "yes, this is my trailer, and no, I won't haul your horse in it" !! There is an eventer whose daughter goes to school with my daughter-we met in carpool line b/c of our large trucks and stickers!

            My little car has an ASB silhouette on both sides. The truck has the same, along with a Saddlebred "license plate" on the front, a ASHA member sticker in the back window, and a couple of bumper stickers from the KY Horse Council that say "Horses work for Kentucky".


            • #26

              This is so exciting, these below mentioned previously are our bumper stickers:

              "Proud owner of a pretty but useless horse"

              "yes, this is my trailer, and no, I'm not hauling your horse"

              And this one too!

              If I didn't own a horse...this would be a Ferrari"

              I have to say 19 years in business and I am still tickled when I see one of our stickers on a car or if someone talks about them!!!!

              Thank you! You made my day, well, er night...have to go do night check in a bit...
              Sorry! But that barn smell is my aromatherapy!

                    Just got a Morgan silhouette and my husband got a cool sticker from a local tack store (Mount & Rider) when we lived in Knoxville.

                            No. I don't believe in advertising any of my affiliations to anything on my clothes, vehicles or luggage. The only exception is my sig line.

                              I have an American Haflinger Registry decal on the passenger side back seat window and a bumper sticker on the back bumper that says "caution vehicle makes sliding stops" with an image of a reining horse. Even though I have never done any reining. It was the bumper sticker I liked the most at the time out of the choices and hope to eventually do a little reining at the breed shows even though I ride mainly english right now. I liked it too because it is mainly black except the words and horse and our vehicle is black so it blends in well.

                                        I have a cookies jumping horse, a very faded USEA sticker, a horse head that forms the letters ADFP (believe it or not, those all fit together into a horse head line drawing). The letters were the initials of a friend's horsey business name. And I have a clear plastic unicorn that hangs from my rearview mirror, a little yellow plush horse that lives in the ashtray, a ton of dirt on my car, and my tall boots in their bootbags in my car (not to mention extra saddle pads, breeches, etc. I'm not even quite sure what all is back there. )

                                          APHA on one rear (small) car window, ApHC on the opposite one.

                                          USRider sticker on the truck -- still waiting to put my "Where's the Fruitbat?" sticker on it too!

                                          The trailer has an appy American flag sticker -- usually I'm not into flaggage but I thought making an appy out of a flag (with the stars on his butt of course) was kind of cool. I used to have a "Paint Inside" sticker next to it in the style of the Intel Inside logo, but it has begun to peel and may now say "Pint Inside". Have to replace that!

                                          I have a custom sticker of our farm name with a horse head on either side of the words, but I haven't figured out where to put it so it won't get beat up too badly or covered with mud and other filth. It would also require CLEANING said vehicle so chances are the sticker will never go on!
