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.

      Mary Lou, your horses ROCKED! I love Fifi in particular, and she really cleaned up yesterday (Filly Champion, Y/H Champion, Reserve Grand Champion). She unfortunately didn't have the best go this morning, but she certainly redeemed herself in the Finals this afternoon! And yes, Andrea did an awesome job!

      Marydell Farms (Maryanna Haymon) had a bunch of really nice horses there, as did Annetta Coleman of High Valley Hanoverians.

      We were unfortunately missing three incredibly nice area youngsters, though. Julie Ballard Haralson's 2008 KWPN filly by Jazz / Metall stayed home this weekend (she had a long KWPN keuring earlier in the week), as did Sherry Smith's super 2010 Oldenburg-GOV colt by Rousseau / Sandro Hit, and her equally nice 2008 Oldenburg-GOV colt by Quaterback / Sandro Hit. Not to take anything away from the top horses at the show, but any of these three would have turned up the heat on the winners a bit!

          Congrats to everyone at the show this weekend! It was a great show all the way around for everyone and the quality of the horses presented has gone way up over the last few years.

          Thanks also to everyone running the show - really really great job!!!!

            Annissa, your Emerald Fire filly is really lovely!

            Annetta Coleman deserves a huge pat on the back for saving this show when the organizer was talking about canceling it a few months back. Annetta convinced her she just could NOT cancel a series final and also convinced her to hire a show manager/secretary instead of trying to run the show herself while also running a dressage show at the same time. And Annetta did a yeoman's job in organizing an army of volunteers, setting up office space in the breed show barn so folks didn't have to trek all the way to the dressage show office to do official paperwork, and also setting up a very nice awards table. This was by far the best run, best organized DSHB show we have ever had here in GA.

              Thanks Chris - I am so proud and happy with my girl, she really came to play this weekend. The compeitition over all was really really fantastic.

              And I agree - this show was one of the best, if not the best, that I have been to. Very well run, organized, and hospitable. Heck, we were even EARLY most of the time this weekend! Great show.

                Thanks also Chris for posting this and saying such nice things about my horses.
                I belong to the Fifi fan club also! Congratulations Mary Lou.
                Annetta did do a wonderful job. The ring set up and organization was so efficient. Honestly it was one of the best run breed shows I have ever been to. Plus we had fun!
                As always, Ann Genovese and the Good Horseman Foundation support the breeders in a major way. Without Ann and her efforts many of us would have never gone to our first breed show.
                PS Than you Jessica Barnes and Demitasse HF, the "comeback queens" for winning the 3 y/o materiale classes both days and to Saskia Wurche, Dean Graham and Anke Boersma who risk life and limb to trot our sometimes unpredictable little sweethearts!

                  I am finally gettting back up to speed and catching up with the posts.
                  Congratulations to everyone at the shwo. What such high quality! I agree the show was one of the safest and most smoothly run that I have been to. Both judges, Jos Sevriens and Janet Foy were quick, fun and enjoyable in their public commentary. As hot as it was, the quick was greatly appreciated.

                  I am a huge fan of Mary Lou's horses and of Andrea and their wonderful support team. Fifi is amazing. Lily is really getting better each time out. Her walk yesterday morning was really good. It really gives me a chill to watch the rapport that Andrea has with both those girls.

                  Annissa your girl rocked Saturday! She was just awesome.
                  Sassafrass was a lovely mare who knew where to look and how to get the job done.

                  Both Dawn MF and Fortissimo B (Camilla Van Liew) woke up and showed well on Sunday.

                  The handlers all did a super job, Andrea, Anke, Brendan and Dean. Thanks so much for all of your efforts. Saskia, thanks for the great braiding job on my guys.
                  Most of all--Thank you to Ann Genovese for supporting the breeders!

                    Julie, your horses are ALWAYS super! And tee-hee, you are right about the handlers – and the “unpredictable little sweethearts”!

                    I was also thinking how cool it would have been to have Judy Yancey’s fantastic horses there. I would loved to have seen that super Jazz mare and her 2010 stallion prospect colt by Florestan, the 2010 Fuerst Romancier / Donnerhall filly, the 2010 Bellissimo / Fuerst Heinrich filly, the 2010 Ampere / Dream of Glory colt, and the 3 y/o Quaterback / Sandro Hit filly. Folks that don’t go to Judy’s Oldenburg inspection or otherwise see her horses just don’t understand the depth of quality of her breeding program, but wow, some of her horses would have given everyone a run for their money at this show!

                      I really admire Judy's program so my comment is not directed at her (and in fact she did breed Qredit, who won DAD last year) but it is a bit offensive to those who actually do show their horses to say things like this. And there is a big difference between looking great at home (or even at an inspection) and getting out and performing at their best at a show (particularly where youngsters are concerned). Many super horses don't show at their best at shows. The horses that are out and winning with scores of 75 or in the 80s - that is something. It is pretty easy to sit home and say someone would have done great had they actually attended and another thing entirely to go out and bring home the blue. I have some great youngsters in my barn, too, but it would never occur to me to suggest that had they shown up at this show that they would have given these guys a run for their money. That would be ridiculous.

                        No need to get so bent out of shape. I was not trying to diminish the accomplishments of the folks at this show, but rather to comment IN GENERAL about the depth of quality in breeding programs in this area of the country.

                        I am sure the same scenario plays out in many other regions - super horses at home instead of out showing in the DSHB classes. It certainly doesn't mean the horses that DO show are any less in quality.

                        And yes, those folks that do make the effort are certainly to be commended for putting their horses out there. It is a HUGE expense and effort.

                          I happen to love the horses I have seen over the years bred by breeders such as Annetta Coleman, Julie Haralson, Sherry Smith, Maryanna Haymon, Anissa Cottongim, as well as many other breeders who show in this region. In fact, I always tell anyone helping me if they start getting a little too enthusiastic about our chances of winning that we can never know who will show up - that there are so many great horses being bred in this country these days that something incredible might show on the scene and blow us away. That is just reality.

                          Many kudos to those breeders and owners who showed their horses this season. It is an effort and an expense and without enough competitors shows won't happen, as we saw a few times this year. Additional kudos to all who did well. These are living, breathing creatures who can change the results of a class in an instant with a sudden tension or worry. There is so much that goes into a great run and at least one factor will always be luck.

                          I can't thank my friends and fellow breeders enough for all their kindnesses and support over the years. As someone else said, it does take a village. And there is nothing better than a village of fellow breeders who respect and support one another, always ready to say "good for you" and to commiserate when times are tough. What goes around comes around.

                            Well said, Mary Lou. It is so true that you never know what will happen at these shows. While watching from ringside this weekend, I heard various people near me exclaim at least three times - "there is your Grand Champion", or "there is your Mare Champion", etc. In each case, the horse in question was certainly a very, VERY good specimen, but the judge happened to like another one even better - on that day, on that trip around the ring.

                            And yes, you and Maryanna and Julie and Annissa and Annetta and others who show in this region have certainly been instrumental in raising the bar for others. As I said, the depth of quality of breeding programs in the SE is getting to be quite impressive!
