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!

      Also commonly referred to as the "tramp stamp"!! I know the whole lower back tattoo fad is a little cliche but I still cannot help myself from wanting one there!

          My it-seemed-like-a-cool-thing-to-do-at-the-time tattoo is not horse-related, though I am seriously thinking of getting it turned into a horseshoe or similar!

          But DKL does have a tres cool horsey tattoo. I will try to harass her into posting a pic.

            I have one picked out but I haven't gotten it yet- it's a little bitty, slightly fuzzy winged horse that happens to look a LOT like a haflinger- so I'm going to have it done in golden brown with a pale mane and tail and wings.

                Very cute! But I am still thinking about that little galloping "hell bent for leather" pony look.

                The odds of me ever doing this are so slim I should just quit looking at this thread <LOL>!!!

                    I am part of the "tramp stamp" clique. My first tattoo is a big ol' rearing horse in the center of my lower back:

                    Do you have ANY idea how hard it is to get a photo of that? Not to mention the unflattering angle I also have an absolutely darling little dragon on the front of my hip on my Photobucket there.

                      I don't have a tattoo, but my first riding instructor had one of Hobbes (of Calvin and Hobbes fame) on her ankle. I thought it was soooo cool...

                        My first, and as of yet, only tattoo is of Pegasus on my back. It starts about mid back and ends about 1/4" above my "sun doesnt shine" area. Its about 5" across and 7" tall. Took 4 1/2 hrs to do, but I love it.

                          I'm want to get another one, just don't know what yet.

                                But of course! lol

                                I have the cantonese symbol meaning 'horse' and a calligraphy style outline of my horse' head on my lower back, on the left about 3" x 3" is his head and 1" x 1" for the symbol. (The symbol starts where his neck ends... i luv it) doccer's been my life for so long -- and my first horse -- i want him with me forever

                                I was adament when i brought in the picture that the tatto MUST show the big ears, roman nose, and big bottom lip

                                I'm aiming to go in again and get some color/shading in the outline...... and when he's gone in this life, i'll get something to show him becoming free -- a dove, a cross.... when it's time i'll feel what it should be

                                When i did get the tattoo, i saw blue spots on the way out It hurt every time i took a breath in, soooo..... i didn't breath in the whole time i was tattooed!! lmao -- not reccomended

                                  I've got one

                                  On my left ankle. It's a wreath of flowers that goes all the way around but I just had to have it horsey, so on the outside there's a horseshoe. Here is a photo (it was taken the day I got it so it's a little swollen):

                                    I have a "wild" horse head on my back (its the identical picture that is in the "How to draw horses" book), a stupid butterfly on my lower right back (I was set on a tattoo that day, the place with the rose wasn't open, the other one didn't have nice roses, so I settled and HATE it), and a rose on my right ankle that I just had a horseshoe incoorperated into a few months ago. I must say, I didn't plan on getting anything, then got the horseshoe, now I want another one. I've always wanted a dolphin, but not sure where to go with it. Maybe on my other ankle, cause I don't want it real big. But then, do I want it jumping waves or a horseshoe, hmmmmm ....

                                      I didn't tell my parents for a long time either for religous reasons (I'm Christian) But one of my tattoos is a Jesus Fish, so I think it balances out!

                                          When I got mine, it took me forever to figure out what I wanted it and where I wanted it. I decided I didn't want it anywhere that would show if I was in evening wear (I think that looks really trashy) or anywhere that had a very high likelihood of stretching or sagging (either with pregnancy or age) like a breast or stomach or something like that. You know, that wonderful butterfly on your belly turns into pterodactyl..uh no thanks.
                                          So anyway, I got a tattoo sort of on my lower back but lower, just above if you'll excuse me, my butt. It's a red fox with green eyes sitting inside of a gold hunting horn. It's all colored in and really pretty. It's almost as big as the palm of my hand, but it's easy to cover up with most clothing.
                                          I had it custom designed because I didn't want something that everybody else had.
                                          So I guess I'm in the ho club or whatever it is too
