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 forgot the sticker I have on the ramp on my trailer. It says:

    If you're gonna ride my bumper, then you'd better put a saddle on it.

        Hopefully this isn't hijacking, but I was wondering where I could find those stick horse decals/magnetic stickers. Does anyone know?

          I have a license frame that says "I love to ride my Saddlebred." My license plate is personalized and is horsey. And I have a Saddlebred silhouette with Drummer's full name on it on one of my windows.

                I have an OSU Equestrian sticker as well as a "Cowgirl Up." They might as well know who and what they're dealing with

                  I have the "Proud owner of a pretty but useless horse" one and "If I didn't own a horse, this would be a Ferrari." The second one is especially awesome as my car is a ginormous falling apart Oldsmobile station wagon with the last bits of exhaust pipe held on with coat hanger and the bumper dangling and reattached with duct tape. I don't think anything else screams horse owner better than a car on its last legs...

                  I remember seeing a "My quarter horse beat up your 4th-level dressage horse" bumper sticker on a car in the city over the summer, and literally taking the long way home to follow them, just because I was so excited to see another horse person in the city. Wasn't like I was going to run her off the road and scream "I'm a horse person too!!! OMG!" (I swear, really I wasn't), but in the city you don't have as many ways to advertise horsey-ness. (And if you're a Buffalo horse person with a quarter horse bumper sticker and suddenly recalling a big scary station wagon following you down Richmond for a mile or two at some point, sorry...)

                    I also have 2 Cookies window art decals. The jumping horse.

                    A take off of the "ride my bumper", I saw one that said "if you're going to ride my a$$, at least pull my hair"

                      I have a dressage silhouette of a person with Dressage written underneath and I have the Hanoverian breed Logo on my window as well.

                        My bumper sticker is Christian Hetteinger's teal-colored international foxhunters' emblem--the one with a velvet cap superimposed over a fox mask. I like it because there really aren't that many foxhunters around, ocmpared to h/j or dressage people, so when I see someone else with this emblem we probably know each other, at least in the online sense of knowing.

                          Friend of mine has a trailer decal that says, "These horses are worth more than your house. BACK OFF."

                          My daughter has a decal for Days End Horse Rescue, to which we contribute.

                            We have 2 on our car. One says Dressage, and the other says Jumper.

                                  Most of the bumper stickers mentioned on this thread are ours. www.horsehollowpress.com

                                  Thank you so much! It is really thrilling to see such interest!!! And, I LOVE seeing them on cars and trucks!!

                                  My new favorite one is "My horse ate my paycheck." I haven't had a chance to put it up on the web site but equinelaw, our very own COTH'er, came up with that one!!! You might be able to find it at your local tack store as we shipped a bunch.

                                  Hay anyone going "tack storing*" this black Friday? I am!
                                  *A verb for shopping at tack stores instead of "malling" which is shopping at the mall.

                                    In the most roundabout obscure way possible, courtesy of my strange old mother. She got me a decal from the visitor's center at Bosworth Field in England. Fifty cents to the first contestant who correctly identifies the equine allusion.

                                      I have a Corgi sticker, jumping horse silohette(sp??) sticker, and a Barbaro race horse sticker. Also have a jumping horse on front license plate.

                                        Damnation, this thread reminded me I left my saddle in the car. F#$#^&.
                                        I know it cheers me up to see a horsey bumper sticker, but I don't have any myself. I'm mysterious and anonymous, I am. Except for the saddle, crop and manure inside the car, of course. The parking lot guys must be just thrilled with that car...
