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!

  • tack theft caught on camera, Millstone NJ

    Anyone recognize these two young "ladies"? The farm owner would like help identifying these girls.

      Hope they catch the little dishonest snots. I also hope the girls are dealt with legally and then their parents tan the hides off of them.
      I saw the video fine.

        Holy Sh**.

        That camera caught some pretty good images of those two.

          They seem to be quite clear on what they are looking for.. I'm surprised a local hasn't already id'd them.
          Nevertheless, she persisted.

            As videos go this one is a good one - great shots of both of their faces, distinctive hair and clothing.

              Very strange, and very convenient that they just happened to stand in the light of the video camera, in the very spot in the tack room that is covered by the video camera. Just a bit too perfect, IMO.

              Are we sure this isn't a hoax of some kind?

                could you ask the police or could you show this video to your local hs teachers? (or maybe junior high).

                  That's a night vision camera...you can tell when they enter the tack room. Watch the flashlight's reflection on the floor in the middle of what looks like a pool of light...the flashlight is bright as heck on the floor because that's not lit up to them. It's dark in there...not pitch black but pretty dark. That's the same view I get from my night vision cameras.

                      For some reason the original won't open, but I connected to the owner and saw her other video-same thing. Those girls knew what they were doing. Well it will be tough to live this down, now that they are online for all eternity.

                        The farm has been robbed before, hence the installation of the camera. The idea of taking it to the local school is a good one.

                        The text of the email I was forwarded is as follows, maybe I am gullible, but it sounds believable to me.

                        [FONT=Arial]"I am sending this email out to all of you in the hopes that someone might be able to help me. I am sure you all can understand how devastating it is to have someone come into your home/barn and take whatever they want without a conscience. Well, last June I had someone come into my barn and steal my Hennig dressage saddle. I had no clue who did it so, after reporting it to the police, I let it go. There was very little I could do about it. The one thing I did do was to have surveillance cameras installed through out my barn. I did it for "peace of mind" but I really didn't believe it would happen again. I was wrong, last night I had two more saddles stolen. I can't believe that someone would come right in my barn and take anything they wanted, but they did. The good news is, I have the whole thing on video. Attached are some of the pictures of the two young girls that broke into my barn in the middle of the night and stole two saddles. Hopefully, someone will recognize them as the photos get around. What I really want is my saddles back. I believe that people are desperate right now and feel a barn (that you can't lock up) is an easy target, but I hope if I give them a little bit of time they will return my saddles and not risk prosecution. I am sure that I will eventually find the girls who did it but it would be easier if someone recognized them and let me know who they are,sooner then later. Eventually, I will hire a private investigator to find and prosecute the thieves. I have a full video and many more pictures for anyone that might recognize these two girls."[/FONT]

                          The owners of the video should post a notice with youtube link on it at all area tack shops and all other area barns. And a still from the video of the two girls' faces. Probably the fastest way to get them identified.

                            It strikes me how absolutely healthy, well - fed and well - dressed these two are. So much for my philosophy that theft is usually conducted by those in dire straights.

                            These girls look like they want for nothing.

                              They were obviously looking for something specific. I hope someone recognizes them.

                                Let me see if I understand you. The farm owner has had a previous break-in, could afford to put surveillance cameras around and throughout the barn, but can't afford a latch and lock for her tack room door(s)?!?!?!

                                This is a farce and a hoax.

                                  These girls absolutely ride. They probably just wanted a new saddle.

                                    I dunno Im with the person who smells a hoax..... It just seems odd to me.
                                    Shouldnt the video have been given to the police to evaluate and try to identify? Was there no lock on the tack room door?

                                      It also seems kind of sketch to me, esp the lack of a lock on the door .

                                      If it is real then do as others have said. Send the link to the police and post flyers with a still pic of the girls in all the tack stores/feed stores in the area as well as horse shows.

                                        Just a note, I have seen very few locks on tack room doors, and I have been doing this for around 30 years.
