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!

    Okay i moved my horse into a public boarding barn almost a year ago. From a barn from heck.

    The only girl i knew up there welcomed me with open arms and we were fine into about 3 or 4 months ago. I go to school/ and work so by the time i get off work i just want to see my horse ride and go home, the bm is 2 years older then me so we slowly started to talk to each other and from a friendship the girl i know lets call her sally is 17 i think, maybe 18 i'm 22 and bm which we'll call mallory is 24.

    Mallory and Sally started to look for training horses all winter
    everything was cool nothing was said since sally was her sallys mom's eyes the number one person to mallory
    the barn went around love joy and peace.
    Mallory took her soon to be husband to get a horse and sally got mad and p'd that she wasn't allowed to go. then all heck has broken out.

    Mallory and I are doing C.M.O which is a trail ride treasure hunt this summer, figured we've shown our whole lifes lets try this. So we have been riding at night to avoid the blow up that we know is going to happen once sally and her mom find out that we are doing something together with out sally.

    Friday was 76 so i called mallory and said hey lets go trail riding today, so the answer was yea can brenda who cleans the barn go? which my answer was yup! So i get off work and run up there start to load horses and the 2 show horses will not get in the trailer so once they are in sally and her mom are pulling in, sallys mom gets in bm mom's face and tells her off asking what the hell is going on; corners another mom and flips out.

    Sally calls the sweetest girl fat to her face then says you never get anything done with your horse why do you ride??? which another girl call her a bitch. Okay sallys horse is lame she's been off for about 4 months big time is always lame in my eyes but big lame for months; So sallys mom is out of town this week, she text's girl that she called fat's mom and ask whats for dinner?? um hello??? she then show up at the barn at 6 doesn't touch her horse talks to the girl who is fat and acts like nothign is wrong. She will not talk to me which i don't care because i swear to god she's biopolar

    then mallory was talking to me once sally left and said she talked to everyone but you didn't she? um yup she leaves the min i get there which i honestly don't mind

    Mallory and her soon to be husband live on the farm which sally has basically said is it okay to stay with you guys? in the winter which the answer is no. So that comment came up last-night between everyone besides sally, which mallorys answer was the only way you stay with us is if you are to drunk to drive home lol Told mallory later in the day i could serisouly get you in the shit house and say i've stayed with you guys lol she just laughed.

    just a vent feel a little better now!

          Seriously?

          I mean, even with AF's paragraph insertions and additional punctuation, the OP is barely intelligible. Made my head hurt.

          "Mallory and Sally started to look for training horses all winter everything was cool nothing was said since sally was her sallys mom's eyes the number one person to mallory the barn went around love joy and peace...."

          HUH???

          OP: stop sweating the small stuff.

              I couldn't wade through that endless run-on sentence either. If a poster wants other people to READ their post and maybe put in the time to respond, it would be a good idea for the OP to put in the effort to use punctuation, grammar, capitalization, decent spelling, and paragraphs. It's not *just* courtesy to the reader (though it is DEFINITELY that!), it's *communicating* effectively.

              So many times, someone will misread or misunderstand even a *well*-written post and respond with something from left field, which sidetracks the thread as others fail to notice the error. What a shame. But with something like the post above, there's even LESS chance that a careful reader can make sense of it in spite of putting in the time to try to figure out what the writer is trying to say.

              The initial post on this thread is so mangled, it's not worth the effort to decode it. If the poster can't take the time and put in the effort to communicate even remotely clearly, why bother to put in the time to figure out what she's trying to say -- it obviously doesn't matter enough to her to have made any attempt to make her point clearly to the readers.

                Yes, sorry but I also could barely understand what was written. Wish I could offer some help, but I just can't figure out that mush of words!

                      Oh, don't get me wrong, I love texting and I'm in my 20's. Though, I will admit that I have one of the full keyboard phones that allows me to construct full and proper sentences complete with punctuation.

                        Okay...I read it. (the paragraph version--thank you Angela) and I STILL don't get it.

                        At all.

                        Best I can figure...Sally and Mallory don't get along and someone's mom is nasty. And the OP trail rides. And shops for horses. And failed Comp 101.

                        A good horseman doesn't have to tell anyone...the horse already knows.

                        Might be a reason, never an excuse...

                              Ok OP DEEP BREATH.......And put down the Redbull....

                              Let's see if I can get the gist of what is going on....

                              Sally was your friend......You moved to same boarding barn....
                              You dared to develop a friendship with Mallory, the BO ( or the BO daughter?).
                              This new friendship sometimes includes Sally, sometimes doesn't.

                              Sally and her mother seem to think that you can't do things with this friend in common unless Sally is involved....Hmmmm....I think this says alot about Sally and her mom....

                              OMG....At 22, PLEASE just ignore this girl.....She hasn't gotten past the possessiveness of Jr. High relationships....Feel sorry for her if you must, but take the high road and just be pleasant and don't get sucked into the drama....unless of course you enjoy it....

                                  Previous poster said: "Don't forget, someone called someone else "Fat!"

                                  Oh my God! The above comment and "You can't ride" are words of war in the horse world!!! Let the games begin!

                                  (Have you ever noticed in the horse world when someone is mad at another and they go on and on in a diatribe of insults and the last insult is: "She can't even ride!"? To anyone else, "She can't even ride!" is a who cares statement but to horse people it is words of war and usually turns into an entertaining pissing match for the rest of us! Arh, arh!)
