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!

    Can't see the pics but want to ask about the race itself and the weather? Getting to / from the track?

    I was supposed to go this year, before a family situation intervened. Next year!

      Hmmmm. I couple of my friends were able to open the COMH album. Try again, if you would. The link worked for me but as a COMH member I am permanently logged on.
      If I get a chance, I'll make a photobucket album of the pics.

            Love the photos of Curlin. He's such a lovely horse.

            In the one, though, all I could think of was that the Burj Dubai has gotten considerably taller than when I saw it last.

              Thanks for the updated link. I AM a member of COMH, but I couldn't get to them...even did a search. Weird.

              He looks tired! But he looks good, too....

                  They're definitely into speed building over there! My husband says the same thing every time he goes over there - his office is not too far away. I've heard the average construction timeframe in Dubai is an insane 2-3 floors A DAY!

                  Your photos are nice, Linny. Thanks for sharing! Curlin does indeed look a little tired. Really wish I could have made it over there this year but we have a family thing that weekend. Next year!

                    The difference there is that once the decision is made, they BUILD. They don't have 500 committees analyzing things or environmentalists poo-pooing everything or 6 tons of red tape to wade though.

                    I'm hoping for yet another update from my friend. He did say when we spoke on Wed, that Curlin looks super, he doesn't need that "207" saddle pad. Everyone knows who he is. Also,I'm told that Arc runner-up Youmzain has arrived in the International Stable and is "a real character."

                    Thank you Cindy for the kind words. I've never had a website before! My son (age 8) loves having his pictures on there.

                      Linny, very true, but they're also fast because money is NOT an object! I work for an architectural firm involved with work over there and while they are keenly interested in sustainable design and green building (probably because Abu Dhabi is kicking Dubai's tail with their new Masdar city project), they really could give a flip about the cost. They told us speed is the concern and price isn't. Money and a common goal to be the showplace of the world can accomplish the impossible.

                      That's one of the reasons I'm so keen to attend the world cup. Considering the level to which everything else has been built in Dubai, the track has to be unreal!! Anyone have first-hand stories?

                        Tiramit, I went to the World Cup races in, uh, 2006, I think. Whatever year Electrocutionist won the World Cup. Nad al Sheba is a gorgeous track. I am sad that I didn't get a chance to do the stable tour since I hear those are to die for. Like everything else in Dubai, money was no object and they built the best they possibly could.

                        It was well worth it to go to the races just for the spectacle. We scored some good seats in the grandstand opposite the finish line. i'd go again in a second. Here's hoping for a job in Dubai one day!

                          My friend in Dubai reports on Curlin's work on Sat am, their time.

                          "Saturday morning here and Curlin has just had his first work over the Nad Al Sheba main track. On my watch:
                          200m- 13.07 400m- 25.27 600m- 37.89 800m- 50.50 very easy, and never asked for speed. Track : FAST. Galloped out good to Poncho waiting for him on the backstrech. He looked great on a great morning here. Everyone pleased with the work, just what they wanted for Thursday's race. I can't wait!"


                          When we spoke last week, I was told that the plan was a moderate "piece of work" over the weekend. It looks like thats exactly what they got.

                            He doesn't look tired to me in those pictures-he looks great and I am not even on the Curlin bandwagon! I am a bit disappointed that Joe Louis isn't coming over and I heard Premium Tap is doubtful since he came out of that race tired. I was really hoping Premium Tap would show his stuff last and this year but they seem to want to keep him in Saudi. I am most excited about Better Talk Now!!!!!! (not to hijack this thread )
