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!

    He's really not that good looking. At least he doesn't appear to be my type. His voice is...well...stupid sounding. You know? He SOUNDS like an idiot. Actually, my boyfriend was the one who pointed out that he both looks and sounds like "Puddy" from Seinfeld.

    I cringed the whole time he rode. No leg...no seat (though I'm sure the view from "behind" was nice wqhen he tried to two-point the canter). I was only impressed that he could ground mount in jeans!

    The women...blech! The only two I liked were Zora (sweet and innocent...I wanted to cry for her when she didn't have a dress), and the girl with the nice smile.

    I can't wait to see these "princesses" shovel it!

      I'm pretty sure he's been back in VA, where in VA beach - you CAN live for $19K. Heck I'm going to have to figure out how to do it for not much more than that in Northern VA!!

        Wow, I am so clueless. I hadn't heard of it, my my daughter had, and we stayed up long enough to see him ride the horse. Nice stables, kind of feisty horses. I thought he did well considering he had never ridden. Yes, the horse was a saint, and it sure looked like it was going to launch him as he galloped away.

        My guess too is that there will be some sort of twist at the end just to keep us guessing. Personally he is not my type, but he has nice teeth. Like Jennasis I too thought "Puddy" from seinfeld. Kind of a doofus guy, but thanks Robby...a well hung fellow. Leave it to the gay contingent on the bb to provide the good photos of the guy

        So, now I am going to be stuck watching this dumb show to see how it ends......

          OK! THANK YOU! My roommate and I are the same age as many of the girls and we kept looking at eachother saying, "Do we look THAT old?"

          I feel much better now.

            IT WAS THE MOST HISTERICAL THING IN THE WORLD!!!! And the horse bolting away and running around the stable was GREAT! How many times have I dealt with that!!! LOL He did great considering he had never ridden. Those girls are GOLD DIGGERS!!!!! I can't wait til next week!!!

            As for the girls, a tad too much makeup in my book!




            • #46
              Too funny! My daughter and I instantly agreed we'd rather be at his stable, then when we saw the previews for next week, mucking stalls, we were like "yeah, we could do that!"
              he may be a hottie, but didn't appear to bright

                I do payroll for a construction company...it is in Canada so you'll have to do the currency conversion for yourself... Construction workers can make a wack load of money (especially if they are unionized) For example a guy working a hoister (don't ask what that is... I guess its hoists things and all the guy has to do apparently is push a button) gets $25.75 an hour. AND if he works overtime its double that( so $51.50!!!!!) Operators make a lot more $$$ than labourers though. Right now here the rate is $23.48/hour. So if that guy is making only $19,000 a year he either barly works or like another poster said lives in the backwoods of Montana!!!

                  My hubby said last night "he's not too bright is he???" well it appeared he was stumped on some of the girls questions....he's gotta be a little quicker than he was.....send me to the stable ANYDAY!!! I would rather be with the horses!




                  • #49
                    I'm with you guys...those girls are older than they say. How about "Mojo"?!?!?! I'm not so sure that she's only 24

                    Heidi is out for blood...I'm keeping my eye on that one!


                    • #50
                      LOL, I thought that too that they looked older--or well worn or something.

                      Those ladies (and I use the term lightly), were really out for blood-witness the nastiness with the dresses.

                      My bet is they are going to be SO PISSED when they find the guy is a nobody-gold diggers, social climbers, whatever, they sure just looked like a bunch of whining nasty women to me.

                      And seeing them in the stables for next week made me laugh....oh gawd, the heartache of having to shovel crap! LOL-I would have been out in those stables in a heartbeat. They had nice arenas-don't know what kind of horses those were though-high headed a bit, and hot. What do you all think they do with them? I missed the beginning-is that chateau the kind of place normal people can go and ride kind of thing? Vacation-y for the rich or something? Just curious is they told about it.

                      Yep, I say we are in for fireworks when these women find they've been duped, and boy are they gonna look bad when they see themselves looking so greedy

                        Thank god, Jennasis... I thought I was the only one who actually found him somewhat unattractive.

                        We also thought that many of the girls lied about their ages... I remember thinking "wow... she's a year younger than me. Do I really look that old???" (I'm 25).


                        • #52
                          Oh my... I was dying when he was riding.
                          I honestly felt bad for him.. He was trying to
                          impress all these girls for the first time riding this horse. They were clueless, he did pull it off.

                          That horse was a true sport.. I thought they would have him on a dead quiet schooling horse but no. That horse had some go to him which was impressive to me. I totally thought he was going to fall off at the canter or the horse was going to bolt due to his lack of balance. I can imagine what my face looked like at that scene.

                          I also would want to muck the barn just to see it. That place was awesome.

                          Can't wait to watch those prissy's muck the manure! Especially that blonde with all the eye make up.. I can't remember her name, but she bugs....

                          I like the brunette with the cute smile, she seems genuine.

                            I went to salary.com and found that in Newport News, VA, the salary range for a construction worker who operates a grader, bulldozer or scraper is from $26,405 - $38,895. Since he has enough experience to train new employees, he probably makes towards the upper end.

                            Maybe he changed jobs or something and only made $19k last year, or got hurt (very likely in construction) and was off for some time. Or maybe that is his take home pay after taxes etc are taken out.

                            But I was also impressed by his riding and obvious comfort level with the horse. He stated that he had never ever ridden a horse before.
                            Man plans. God laughs.

                              Wow, the mind boggles

                              Caught a few minutes of the program last night. Would agree with those who found "Joe" dumb and somewhat unattractive - the Cro-Magnon brow just doesn't do it for me.

                              Laughed at the association between wealth and riding - it's so ingrained in our culture that only the wealthy ride that they house Cro Magnon Boy in a chateau with its own stable.

                              The women... Surely, there are easier ways to nab a rich man than to publicly reveal themselves as snivelling, shallow, gold-diggers.

                              What ever happened to the expectation that you make your own way in life?

                                I agree completely! Someone here said he was "simple." Even his smile makes him look not too bright, and those pics on Robby's site, he looks like a big dummy.

                                    Didn't see the show, but looked at the website....there is no WAY someone with a construction job PLUS all the different modeling "gigs" they listed could only make $19K. I smell a rat (or a twisted plot) somewhere in there!!!

                                    Ick though--not my type either

                                      I agree--there has GOT to be a plot twist somewhere that Fox isn't telling us about. I also must admit to gleefully giggling while watching him riding....sad thing is, at this point I ride in a very similar fashion .

                                      Hate to say it, but I have a feeling I'm going to end up watching every awful episode.

                                        Hey, it's a game show. If I were one of those girls, I'd be playing the role of the rapacious golddigger to the hilt -- and I'd be assured of more than my share of screen time.

                                        But how could you not admire a show that dismissed the 'losers' with the following order: "All of you girls who did not receive a necklace: PLEASE LEAVE THE CHATEAU!

                                          I think the whole thing is a big farce. My theory is that all the girls are actresses, and they know what's going on. "Evan" is a model turned actor who thinks he is lying to the girls, pretending to be a millionaire, but he won't find out until the end that he is being lied to, also! Just a thought.
