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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

    Preakness is today! How do you think it will go?

    I'm pulling for Maximum Security but I hope his trainer will put ear plugs in his ears so the roar of the crowd will not bother him. That's what his jockey said caused him to shy in the Derby. I think it will be an exciting race and I can't wait!

    Mark Casse says string halt has never been a lameness issue for War of Will.

    Fascinating to hear that no toilets worked when I in fact used a flushing toilet immediately after the big race and over the course of the weekend used working toilets in the clubhouse and grandstand. Women's ones at that!

    I did notice WOWs funny movement, stringhalt makes sense.

    I knew a horse with stringhalt in the stable where I started lessons as a kid. He was the best jumper in the barn.

    I'm sure that is a typo and the article meant "are NOT a major cause for concern."

    Research into stringhalt has generally proven inconclusive. Some cases can be caused by toxicity, but others seemingly develop overnight. Treatments are varied, but most veterinarians agree that mild cases are a major cause for concern.[/QUOTE]

    It's not the bid deal you are making it out to be. The faster they go, the less obvious it is.

    Guess I would take that with a grain of salt.

    I’ve known quite a few OTTB with stringhalt, some case worse than others, that have gone on to be successful in eventing/jumping & barrel racing. None ever had issues due to it.

    Where'sMyWhite: You wondered why I used the word "cruel" to describe what happened to WoW in the Derby. You thought it was inaccurate because no person did harm to the horse. I was using the world "cruel" in the sense of the expression "cruel fate." I'm so glad he had a clear shot at the race in the Preakness and went on to win.

    So that's what string halt looks like? I never saw it before until WoW took those few odd steps.

    I chose to back Improbable before the race because of Baffert and Smith, but looking back on seeing him lose in the Arkansas Derby, I'm just not sure he has the will to win. Before the Preakness Baffert was quoted as saying in an ordinary situation he would never run a horse in a Classic race who has lost his last three races. I think the announcer had it right who describe that usually Baffert's horses ran to win because it was fun! Justify certainly seemed to be enjoying himself winning the Triple Crown as did AP!

    I'm looking forward to the Belmont. May all go well and horses and riders be safe.

    Fascinating. I stand corrected.

    Thanks Cammie and Mr. Casse for validating that I really did see something and am not just an obsessively over-reactive horse person.

    Well, there is truth to that. I certainly was not expecting an Oscar winning speech. I just thought she may have shown some joy rather that looking away with a blank expression. No matter, I it's just my personal opinion that a winner should show some happiness.!

    I've been in that position--where the person beside me is being interviewed and I'm just sort of standing there superfluous. A sudden TV interview can be daunting if you're not used to it. From my experience, a couple of things to consider.

    First, she probably didn't even realize that the camera was on her. Second, she was probably trying not to be a distraction so that her husband could concentrate on what he wanted to say. And third, she was probably listening intently to what Casse said so she wouldn't sound like an idiot on the off chance that the interviewer lobbed a question to her at the end. So in that moment, she had other things to concentrate on rather worrying about the expression on her face.

    Thanks for that. My favorite:
    "Much respect to Bodexpress for finishing the work day after the boss knocked off at 9:02 a.m."

    Wow, that's what I thought, but I know almost nothing about stringhalt other than an idea of what it looks like. So stringhalt did not stop him from being a classics winner!

    1) No. I was too.
    2) Yes. I heard them say he did.
    3) I agree. There was another horse running in another race at Pimlico today, named Overdeliver. I guess Bodexpress could have been named that.
    4) I agree.
    5) Me too.
