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!

    Honestly that many TBs disappearing weekly I believe the BM line but not the CS line fully. There is likely many more "4H" ladies and the smart ones are staying low. I have no dog in that fight as I would never buy a horse from the likes of CS and I don't care how wonderful it is. If I can keep the money out of the KB's pocket than I will. CS should have never cheap shotted Fugly about Adultery that is just way outta line.

    Back to progress. Local stations have picked up the story but I'm not seeing any public opinion on it yet.

    My favorite line of that article is this though.
    "Penn National Gaming shares fell 61 cents, or 2.1 percent, to $28.47" LOL Let your wallets talk and stop supporting this crock of racing.

    This one mentions the scandal with Gill as well so maybe SH will keep things running smoothly.

      And SwtVixen and Profida should never have cheap shotted CS with this unsubstantiated allegation. Which sucks, because I can no longer put my faith in what they write here.

      • There are not cheap shots going on ...
        Truth is being told. I am an eye-witness to the BM/CS scams being pulled on people under the disquise of *saving* and *rescuing* horses.
        The story on Fugly is true, thats how they operate.
        First emotional blackmail...then the lies how the horse is going to die if a person doesnt stand up... and the secrecy is also true..as well as......... call it what it is... Money Laundering!

        I have witnessed the scam first hand at the BM farm with CS spewing all her BS.....

        Everything posted here is truth, evidence to back it all., eye-witness to substantiate....... all truth from Nov 9th. and the 1st post.
        Its not in someone elses backyard anymore....... your Pres brought it home.

            No, I just want to see concrete evidence that the nice 4H lady is who you say she is. I don't consider someone saying "I am an eye-witness to her scams" to be proof. Sorry.

                  I'm the bully here? I am only interested in the truth. Look at your own post, taunting me, "truth must hurt huh?" I don't even know how that is supposed to apply to me.

                    How about it PHRC? Can't anything embarrass these guys?
                    I do have questions on reporting horses and trainers. How do I do that? Do you have to be apart of the racing scene or can you lodge a complaint as a better? (honestly asking here not stirring the pot.) Does it vary track to track?

                        Sure you can lodge a complaint!
                        With the GM of a particular track.
                        With the Racing Commission
                        With the Dept of Ag/Racing Division.

                        Im not the authority of all this, Dick Hertz would know better... He does have a blog page for asking questions.

                          What kind of a no class gyp runs a horse back already that just ran not 2 weeks ago? Especially while aiming at a race like this one? I know, I know, folks in the employ of noted owner Edward Longo

                          Dickie has shown us some time ago that the state of Maryland takes a dim view of program training. Hopefully they'll take a good look at this one and demonstrate how to make an example for benefit of the PHRC who seems unwilling or unable to do so.

                          Ok Marylanders, your turn. Would somebody down there be good enough to make the call?

                            Maryland is the same joke state that allowed Harry Hepbron to falsify his license application to get his trainer's license. Oh, and they welcomed Kirk Zaide with open arms as well.

                              This one was scratched by the trainer All I can figure is something must have been wrong with this animal for real that nerve blocking, shockwaving and DMSO jugging couldn't overcome

                              I need to tell Dickie something. Can one of you good people send me his e-mail addy in a PM? Either that or tell him to get a hold of me. I've not seen him around for a while and something has come up that he should know about.
                              Thanks folks

                                  • "The Fugly site tells the truth".

                                    Uh, okay, depends on which version of the truth you want.
                                    Are horse rescues scams? Some of them are. Are horse rescues horse traders in disguise? Some of them are. Do MANY Horse rescues play heavily on horseless middle-aged women's heart-strings? Absolutely.

                                    Have MANY rescued horses that were completely unsuitable, if not dangerous to the new owner, been saved? Yup.

                                    Was this story already told, almost a year ago?
                                    Yes, it was. Fugly needed to up the hits on her site. period.

                                    Fugly drummed up money for a horse's rescue on her blog, I donated, then I asked for some paperwork proof when the horse was euthed.
                                    Got called a crack-head for my trouble.
                                    And boy, did I figure things out quick after that.

                                    In horse rescue, the real truth is pretty hard to glean. The ones that sell horses straight from the lot are the most hated by Fugs. Not enough middle men to take some of that very easy cash.

                                    Holier than thou, doesn't even begin to describe the fugly following.

                                    But, never mind. I'm sure the followers will huff ands puff at me.
                                    Fugs has saved SO many horses!
                                    Uh, no, she reports, when others actually DO.

                                    GO ERIC!!!!!!!!
                                    GO CANADA!!!!!
                                    sorry. I am so excited about tonight!
                                    Wish Canada could SEE it tonight.
                                    oh, well.
                                    Calm, Forward, Straight.
