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!

    one weatherbeeta sheet that my Dd and her friends can decorate at her pony birthday party in two weeks for our small pony
    http://www.justforponies.com/weather...tesheet-1.aspx

    one weatherbeeta medium weight blanket for our small pony
    http://www.justforponies.com/weather...umturnout.aspx

    I'm waiting on a new Centaur Irish Knit sheet that I ordered, and am bummed, because when I first saw these earlier in the summer I almost ordered one in the ice pink color. I ended up not getting it because it wasn't something I felt like I really needed at the time. Then, as I was looking at them again this week (so that I can get one for a show next weekend), I saw that several places online showed a TURQUOISE color listed! I was disappointed because I would have sucked it up and ordered the turquoise color months ago if they would have offered it. (It would have looked SO good on my redheaded mare!) Now, every place I look is sold out of the turquoise in a size 78 and I've had to settle for a different color.

    Non horse related, I'm also waiting on my new winter coat that I ordered from Eddie Bauer. (fingers crossed that it fits)

                Nothing too exciting, but I still can't wait - new breeches in smoke blue, and my own crop (also blue!) so I don't always have to hunt for one at lesson time.

                        DON'T do it, I have been sitting here all day waiting for the UPS guy, EVERY other day that man arrives at 10am , where is he TODAY???? The rain has stopped for a bit ( should hold off until around 7pm) and I could try the new saddle on the pony and let DD get a few trips around the ring in it!!!! I can't BELIEVE he has not arrived yet! I also wanted to put Lizzy's new blanket on her, all she has now is a sheet and its really cold and miserable out she would like her new blanket for tonight!!! Our ponies live out to winter clothes are important I just never thought I would need them on the 16 of OCTOBER!!!

                          Tack sponges with my SmartPaks, and something else on clearance I added to the order... can't remember now what it was so it'll be a surprise. (;

                          When I get home I have to order a new girth and possibly a winter jacket, because it is darn cold out. So that'll be something fun to wait for now too.

                            waiting on my bf's birthday present.. which is a new ATV helmet that matches his machine since custom cowboy boots were wayyyy too expensive to get him this year!

                            and possibly sometime in the near future if i find a good enough deal a bridle will be coming my way.. because i'm showing my fave schoolie next month and there is no way my little hunter princess self can bear to show him in his cracking icky schoolie bridle. even if it is the jumpers.

                                Well, better weather somewhat today but looking at 3 days of more rain, sleet and possible snow showers after today.
                                And I'm waiting on 2 small hole hay nets from Smith Bros...that I ordered 10 days ago. Seriously could use them with the icy cold rainy days all in a row...gives the horses something to do when inside. I think I'll give them a call today and see where the heck they are.
                                You jump in the saddle,
                                Hold onto the bridle!
                                Jump in the line!

                                  I'm on the opposite track... just sent back a dressage saddle I had on trial. I loved it, price was awesome, Rico hated it.

                                    Wow. I'm only waiting on two phone calls and some data. Boring!

                                    No shopping for me. In fact I cleaned my trunk yesterday and took another load of stuff to the consignment tack shop.

                                      Dd's saddle arrived, I happen to be a huge Beval FREAK, and when I decided her saddle was too big for her I started looking for a smaller one. This saddle came up on Ebay the DAY I started looking and no one else bid on it!! Well it arrived today and it is GORGEOUS, Fits DD perfectly ( from what i can tell on the arm of the couch LOL) and she just keeps dancing around and singing " I got a saddle , I got a saddle" Now if the weather would clear we could try it out on our pony and see if she is as thrilled as SArah!!
                                      Blankets came too and I once again have to sing the praises of www.justforponies.com I ordered two blankets at noon yesterday and they were here TODAY!!! I love that company they are the BEST when it comes to ordering and shipping things in a timely manner!!! And the blanket I ordered will match the tack of the fleece sheet PERFECTLY we are going to have one adorable PINK pony hanging out in the field this winter!!
