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 was recently at an "A" show for 3 weeks, and the Golf cart people were renting them out for $52.50 a day!!!!Unbelievable!!!

    I did however see, oh what's her name, the actress who plays the Psych in The Saprano's, she leased one.


    • I think they were around $300/week at Indio. Very expensive...but not too bad when split among a few people.

        I see things like the YSOD pix and I wonder why I post here... I just hope when I'm at that age I can still do silly things like that. Ya'll do things I do at the age of 15 with my friends!! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img] <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

        So, what you're basically saying, my sweet little Pony Rock, is that many of us have the sensibilities of 15-year-olds and do "teenager" things. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

        Hey! I can live with that! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

        Memo to Merry, because Beezer does not know where you are lurking at the moment: Do you have something AGAINST QHSM's impatiens?? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img] You know, the ones alongside the rose bushes you told me you'd watered? Like, what ... you SPIT on them?? Gave them a passing glance with the hose, a tease and a promise?? Because those suckers are dead, babe ... D-E-A-D. And there are not enough impatiens in the surrounding three counties to replace them in hopes of getting away with the cover-up.

        Beezer is soooooo not taking the heat on THIS one. If Beezer goes down to the wrath of QHSM over the death of her impatiens, Beezer is taking *YOU* with her.

        And now, about those golf carts ... about how much ARE they? If they are that costly to rent, Merry and Beezer and their respective spouses will need to start saving now! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]

          Exactly!! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] I feel like I'm with my friends pulling our silly pranks.


          • Beezer, I was looking online and found used ones ranging from $300-$1500 and up. Try www.recycler.com and search for golf carts...there isn't much on there this week though.


            • Sorry. I was over on the Charioteer thread. It may provide an opportunity to be with Swarthy Arabian Men! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_redface.gif[/img]

              Don't golf carts have to be plugged in to keep the battery charged? You know, that means our parents would have to remember to do something, which is a frightening prospect. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

                  Well, sooner or later, QHSM does. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img] Actually, she is very good at it ... but on occasion, she gets ... uh, DISTRACTED ... and forgets one -- but the "victim" soon reminds her. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] She also has been known to leave the hose running while filling water tubs (poor Tigger has been flooded out a couple of times! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img] ), and on at least one occasion (that she will admit to [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] ), she "forgot" a horse turned out in the ring ... until 2 a.m. when she suddenly woke up, remembered and bolted out there to fetch him in.

                  Poor Tailor (our cousin Erin's horse) was not amused. Needless to say, he prefers MORNING turn-outs these days. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                  But re the golf cart, my biggest fear is that they'd start tooling around town in it!! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]

                  • We were at the GP in Lake Placid last summer and a couple male teens came screaming through the consession area. They almost ran into the tallest man we'd ever seen. He didn't even blink as they slid to a stop a couple feet away. He just looks at them for a few seconds and then walks over and picks up the front of the golf cart then drops it. I've never heard two kids say "sorry" so many time in my life! ROFLMAO


                    • one of our school horses got loose at a show once, and ran and jumped over a golf cart


                      • A few years ago at a horse expo, I wasn't watching where I was walking, and collided head-on with a parked golf cart.

                        The occupants were very amused.

                        • Olympic Park a few years ago, several people, none of whom I know. Don't know who did it. But someone had a little too much fun at the Grand Prix. The next morning nearly every golf cart on the grounds had been hot wired and parked in the middle of the ring. This next one doesn't involve a golf car per say:
                          At a show in Aiken, red clay track. Trainer's mom is driving back with trainer and other clients in the back of the truck. They pick me up, I sit on the tailgate, go to scoot back, put my hands under me and lift so that only my hands are on teh bed and I can slide back. She floors it, I land on the red clay track in the EXACT same spot and position that I had been in the truck, but on the ground...

                            • Hi folks

                              I don't know how this thread survived the moves, but it brings up some VERY touchy BB history, so I think I will lock it, and let someone start another "Golf Cart Thread", OK?
