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!

    Casey corgi is a pretty good horse show dog. You can smuggle him into hotels and count on him keeping quiet (nothing like getting busted for a barking dog!). And his favorite activity is sleeping in the back of the Expedition. Sometimes I get tempted to pull over and make sure I loaded up the dog too. He just zones out, and even if I call his name I can't get him to wake up.

    But best of all, he LIVES to ride on the scooter. He sits sideways on the floorboard between my feet and taunts all the other dogs as we go flying by. Sort of a "nanny nanny boo boo, I'm riding and you are walking" sort of moment... or when passing a dog on a golf cart it's sort of a "I'm faster than you" moment.

      When I was showing, as a junior, we were very untraditional in our dogs that came along... Afghans -- so obviously the "dogs must be leashed" rule was obeyed! Our two that got to come along were both calm characters.

      ... our first was an ultra-cool horse show dog... he was at an advanced age when I started showing and was always Mr. Dignified and would hang out forever, especially when my mom had to park him somewhere while helping me.

      ... our second was a bit of a wuss and preferred to keep his distance from the horses. One big gelding leaned out over his stall guard one day and grabbed at Ninj's leash... poor dog immediately hit the floor. But he was such a big sweetheart that he'd love to lay in somebody's lap (best he could at his size) ringside for hours on end.

        Here is ,well the backside if my JRT Winnie who goes to many shows with me. And yes he has decided to try riding. He and Dixie our German Shorthaired Pointer have watched long enough they said. Now they are asking that we send them to a G.M. clinic [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img].

        Winnie was also on the cover of the COTH in June 2001. A dear friend and Equine Artist Sandra Philpott did a great oil of him.

              I like to think of my JRT Sophie as my horseshow dog, although she doesn't seem to wild about it...also, call me crazy...but...I just adopted an 8 year old Puppy Mill JRT that was bred and bred until she could no longer handle it. She was turned over to our local PAWS who just happened to be at my hair salon on Saturday. Jolene (temp name...she didn't have a name at the puppy mill) won my heart...I was supposed to pick her up today, but I guess mother nature had other plans. Anyways, here is Sophie my other JRT...once I get pics of the new dog I will post them.

                I have two dogs, but neither are horse show dogs. They like to chase and bark at horses too much and they are quite the handful.

                                I LOVE all the pictures!!!

                                Keep them coming, they're so much fun to look at!!! Aside from horses, dogs are defintely my favorite animal!!
                                Katarine~I have an english setter also, except ours-named Champ is ginger and white. They are such nice dogs, she is about 13 now and has always been the sweetest animal. She LOVES coming to the barn, actually she came and watched one of my lessons last weekend, and she fell asleep in the liverpool (not filled of course!). And she loves to kiss my horse right on the nose, although Meppen doesn't quite know what to make of her!
                                As for other horseshow dogs, my trainer has a terrier that looks like Toto, and conviently fits right inside my moms pocketbook! And two of the clients at our barn have french bulldogs, so sometimes at shows I get to take them around and people ALWAYS stop and ask about them.
                                My Mom and I want a PUG soooo badly, we are both in love with them! does anyone have one or have you had experience with one? Now we just have to convince my Dad that another animal in the house would be a good thing

                                        My 2 year-old Golden Retriever/German Shepherd/Collie cross has been to two horse shows so far. She's adorable and loves everyone, and doesn't bark. Here is a picture of her howling at the tornado siren that goes off the first Wednesday of every month.

                                          Here is a picture of my two dogs together on the sofa. The yellow one (Maya) is a 1-1/2 year old Golden Retriever/Husky mix, and the black one (Jackie) is a 2 year-old Golden Retriever/German Shepherd/Collie mix. I adopted both of them from the same rescue shelter, six months apart, and they just love each other! Maya hasn't been to a show yet, as I just got her a month ago.
