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!

  • Lisa's Booby Trap

    Anyone know hows she's doing. Have not seen any work outs posted in forever.

    She took a few months off to enjoy the lovely upstate NY winter

    On her facebook page, it was mentioned back in December that she was doing well. I bet you'll start seeing workouts pretty soon with Finger Lakes opening in April. Hopefully she'll run back to her 2010 spring/summer dominating form and get back to some nice NYRA races..


    • Original Poster

      I really hope so it would be nice to see her have a safe long productive career for herself and her team.

        Well, horses have been working out at Finger Lakes for a few weeks now in prep for the meet opening on 4/16, but no sign of LBT yet. And her Facebook page disappeared a couple days ago..

          Lisa's Booby Trap

          I certainly hope she comes back! I loved her hard-luck story. If anyone hears anything about her, please let all of us know.

            Someday I'd like to be able to see all that Dateline footage they shot.

              The owner and trainer of Lisa's Booby Trap, Tim Snyder has been so kind to donate pictures of Lisa's Booby Trap (some autographed) to the R.A.C.E. Fund to help raise funds for racehorse retirement and rescue. Tim has also donated the horseshoes that Lisa's Booby Trap wore when she won the Loudonville Stakes at Saratoga. Her shoes are unique because she wears a hind shoe on one of her front feet. These items will be available in our Spring online auction. You may view them at http://www.biddingforgood.com/racefundbid
              Bidding will begin on May 6th at 8:00PM and end on May 22nd at 8:00PM.

              Thank you for your support.

              R.A.C.E. Fund, Inc.

                FWIW, it was mentioned today on another forum that Lisa returned to Finger Lakes grounds about a week ago, and has been walking daily. It was also mentioned that Mr. Snyder is having health issues (plus two other horses in his stable) and can't do the work he was able to do last year. Hoping for the best for both trainer and mare..

                  Just noticed this because it was the top Racing thread on the forums topics. I suppose it is a very well known story, but who names their horse "Lisa's Booby Trap?" Seriously.

                      Lisa was his wife who passed from cancer and "The booby trap" is the name of a club that held whimsical value to them.

                          Spoke to Tim Snyder today and Lisa's Booby Trap worked 3 furlongs yesterday and is doing great. As you know, Tim has donated some Lisa Booby Trap items for our online auction and he hopes they will help us raise funds to help other horses. So check them out and let's wish Tim and Lisa's Booby Trap a safe and successful year.
                          Thank you

                                Yes, Lisa's Booby Trap will race tomorrow at Finger Lakes at 4:19 p.m. She is in the 8th race and the sixth horse. She has a new Facebook page and an official Website.

                                Go Lisa!!!

                                  Lovely Daniella scratched, leaving a 5 horse field and Seasons Wise as Lisa's main rival if she gives her typically strong FL performance..

                                    Does TVG on Tuesdays still broadcast any FL racing? It seems at best they show on delay a race or two from the "Handicapsule". Hopefully the race will be aired live under the circumstances of the entry.

                                      Not broadcasted but she did win ... going off at 1-5 odds.

                                        Nice win, good time..

                                        I wonder where she'll head this summer.. I imagine they'll write another race for her @FL later in June, then it's off to Saratoga..
