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!

  • anybody see Ace of Cakes? (yes, HR)

    1) footage of Duff riding was pretty funny
    2) who was the cake for? Jessica Springsteen?

    I'm dying to know who the cake was for, too. My money is on Georgina Bloomberg, whose daddy is a Hopkins alum.

      I was rather disappointed when the identity of the birthday girl (?) was not revealed. I was wondering if anyone would recognize the horse! That was a beautiful shot the bakery had to work from.

        OK Duff riding was too funny! I have the episode recorded. And it was a very horsie night on the food network; Alton Brown was riding in his episode "the big chili" which started at 11pm (less than an hour after duff rides). Oh and the pic that they worked from was very pretty.

            I LOFF that show!
            I don't have cable/satellite myself but watch whenever I visit friends who do.

            I just emailed Charm City Cakes to see if they would send a picture I could post here.

              I loved the cake too and am dying to know who it was for. But a couple things bugged me about it. First, the jumps were different heights, which I thought looked weird, and second, the reins attached to the bridle up by the browband, and there was no bit on the bridle. I thought that looked so weird! If they were looking at a picture to make the horse/jumps, why didn't they pay attention to those details?

                they are pastrychefs not horsepeople - they got the Big Picture right but missed a few details only horsepeople might notice, no Biggie

                  I know, but if it were MY cake I'd be annoyed. I'd probably scream and refuse to eat it, stomp my foot on the ground and send it back in my private jet kidding...

                  But when you see them make other cakes like those with a designer purse or something, they always pay attention to that kind of stuff.

                    Love that show...Duff is a kick in the pants, as are his employees. They talk and act like they're all on pot or something, but manage to make it happen, with perfection

                    Didn't see that show, but I'll look for a rerun. Thanks for the heads-up.

                      So did anyone else expect Duff to jump up (after falling off the horse) and say "That was AWESOME!!!"?
                      I was a little worried when he didn't!

                        That's true, there was just a pause (a fall from a horse is further than falling off a snowboard, on hard ground to boot), then "That was fun" in a not very convincing tone.

                                I have a tiny bit of inside info about that episode!

                                Maryland Saddlery outfitted him for the day, the dismount was not planned and they had to get everything dry cleaned.

                                It was taped just up the road from the saddlery. Someone from the camera crew knew the manager of that farm, so she helped get it together.

                                Apparently camera crew were in tears holding their laughing in as to not get it on tape.

                                  From Charm City Cakes (Ace of Cakes bakery)
                                  Finally, for the record, I DO know who got the horseback riding cake that was the "secret client" on last night's episode. But I'm not telling. The cake arrived at its undisclosed location just fine, and the client and his wife loved it. That's all I'm gonna say about that.
                                  Trying to find a photo of the cake....
                                  You jump in the saddle,
                                  Hold onto the bridle!
                                  Jump in the line!

                                    Soo funny. But the reins were funny. And I thought I was going to die when Duff fell.

                                    I really want to know who it was. One day, maybe we'll find out. I want to know why the secrecy?! hahaha

                                      You don't say...

                                      From Mary Alice: "Finally, for the record, I DO know who got the horseback riding cake that was the "secret client" on last night's episode. But I'm not telling. The cake arrived at its undisclosed location just fine, and the client and his wife loved it. That's all I'm gonna say about that. "

                                      Well, it figures that someone must know who the secret client was. The mystery continues...
