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 cringed too when I saw him on the horse, and without a helmet on that gravel, all I could think of was he was going to sliiiide off, did you see the saddle slipping as he cantered off? What an agreeable fellow that horse was. Somehow even attractive men loose their appeal when I see them on a horse and they cant ride, doesnt do much for the macho image.
      Did you see the girl chcking out his hands, now if he really was a construction worker Im sure she would have felt very rough hands. I cant help thinking that maybe the joke is on us and he really is a millionaire.

        That made me crack up when she said that, as he went bouncing down the road...LOL

        And the comment about the horse really being white, but he just needs a bath

        I read on another board that he really is a millionaire but is going to tell them he's not, then if they accept him he tells them the truth.

          It was too funny! My horse friend and I killed ourselves laughing. But you know, he actually seems like a sweet, earnest guy. Not like those Bachelor scums. As a feminist, I hate these kinds of shows. But as a, I don't know, sometimes who likes laughing at people?, I have to admit it's very entertaining.

          There's no way the guy's actually a millionaire. You can tell by his dialect he's working class, through and through.

            Like Tosca, I too am watching this show with simultaneous disgust and glee. I am already excited, because I can tell that by the end of this show (or even probably by the next episode, judging by the "Coming Next Week" scenes), those women are going to be scratching each other's eyes out - you can tell the thought of all that money has already started driving them batty. That Heidi is a piece of work - she is clearly the most evil one of all. I agree with everyone who's said that there's no way they were as young as they claimed to be, and none of them struck me as especially attractive, either personality-wise or appearance-wise. But then, it's early, so who knows. So far, I like the one chick with the dark curly hair and the other who had the short black ponytail. Both seemed pretty sweet and had something of an elegant air about them, which is more than I can say for some of the others. Meow.

            I too rolled my eyes at the joke about the horse not having had a bath yet but cringed at the poor man's earnest attempt to ride it and the way he thumped himself good trying to remount. Actually, for a beginner, he's not half bad. And YES that stable is beautiful.

              The show says he makes 19K per year, yet he went to a boarding school that costs 20K per year? He may be a construction worker for the regular job, but I would bet that there is a trust fund or something behind everything.
              I wouldn't be surprised to see a twist at the end of the show...they lead on the viewers to think he makes 19K, the "winner" is told he isn't rich after all, but if she accepts him for love and not money I think she will come to find out that there really is money there!

                I tuned in last night as well, very shameful. He is very attractive, those dimples, that hair, his nice eyes, anywho. Those women disgust me. I think all of them are gold diggers and that is that. It'll be interesting to see them when they actually have to work next time. I like Zora and the other, the one that he said had the nicest smile or whatever, they both seem very sweet and I hope he keeps them! That horse was such a good sport, with him boucing all over the place. i was cracking up when he slipped trying to mount. He did look decent for a beginner though....it'll be interesting to see how this ends.

                  No TV so didn't watch the show -but HE WENT TO HARGRAVE!?!?! That is too funny! It's right here in Chatham along with us and I wouldn't say it's strength is academics!


                  • #29
                    I too gave into temptation and watched, despite my better judgement! But it was worth it seeing the horses, I suppose. And he's pretty hot too, even if he can't ride! But, hey, it was a good effort for someone who'd never ridden before.I hope they make Heidi muck out next week and she falls in it. Grr.

                    And I'm with the posters who said they'd forget the guy and be out in the stables the whole time!

                        I don't think he only makes $19k a year. That means he earns $9.13 an hour, or $365 a week, which is only a couple dollars over minimum. Remember the scene when his coworker was talking about his (the coworker's) first day on the job? Evan "took him under his wing" and was going to teach him all he needed to know about the job. He's got about 10 years operating heavy equipment, and I'll guess he makes closer to $20 an hour, or $40k a year. Oh, and I bet HIS FAMILY OWNS A BIG CONSTUCTION COMPANY!

                        Anyway, he keeps saying he wants to find the girl who likes him for himself, and not the money, and how hard it is for him to lie.

                          Tasty picture, Robby !

                          I was cringing the whole time he was on the horse hoping he wouldn't fall off. What a sight that would have been! I am definately looking forward to seeing how greedy and grasping the women become .

                              Oh my, Robby! I actually like him better in jeans and a flannel.

                              Ok, he looked *really* tall. How many hands do you suppose the horse is that he was riding?

                              Ha, if I were on that show I would stun next week's audience with my astounding barn skills. I've become very good lately at catching poop before it even hits the ground...

                                Well... I do not believe that someone who can operate one of those giant dirt pushers only makes $19K, but what do I know? He is cute, though not my type. He seems very .... uh .... simple. I thought he did pretty well with the riding. THe horse was a saint, and Evan (?) did scratch horsey affectionately on the head & neck while he was talking to the group of chicks, which looked good.

                                  His dad is vice pres of the Old Dominion Trust Co. and his mother manages a linen store. They grew up in a nice neighborhood, but in a modest house compared to the surroundings. His father claims "they are no millionaires" and as far as he knows neither is his son! Evan has no college education and I had friends that went to Hargrave - hardly the "military" academic center of the world !

                                  I have to admit, when I saw the promos and I saw him riding I was like, How in the world does he afford to ride on $19K a year!! how bad is that??

                                    well the scratching the horse on the neck would have done it for me! So good looking AND affectionate towards his horse - that is a turn on! The picture was very nice, except for one thing. I think they should have waxed his arms and legs.

                                    I wish I was in the show. Mucking out the barn! I would have been at my most glamorous!

                                      I would bet that he IS a millionaire... if the girl goes through with the proposal then he will tell all. But I have a feeling he is worth money... NO construction worker, in CA, that operates heavy machinery makes $19k! Maybe in the backwoods of Montana, but even then, thats a reach!

                                          Robby - I KNEW it! Thank you !

                                          Mr. C and I were watching it last night and we were both like, uh, isn't he a male model?
                                          I have to confess, I cringed each time the girls started being stupid and catty (pulease! don't make all women look like schemers and gold-diggers!).

                                          And of course, Mr. C is watching Evan ride and asks, "Do I post better than that? I look better than that when I ride, right?" awwwwwwww
