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!

    I have to add that there were some AMAZING horses at this show. Jos Sevriens, Julie Ballard Haralson and I have been watching the breeding scene in this area for nearly 20 years now, and we all agreed at dinner this weekend that the quality has improved by leaps and bounds, esp. over the past 5-7 years. Big congrats to our regional breeders who are doing a phenomenal job putting GREAT foals on the ground.

    And a very special CONGRATULATIONS to Mary Lou Winn, whose homebred mare Wolkenstanza MLW was superb every single day. Mary Lou also had some super success this weekend with Soliloquy, her homebred Stedinger filly (owned by Andrea Hayden).

    So, Mary Lou, it certainly sounds like it was very worth the trip to GA! Very hearty congratulations on your excellent results with your 2 homebred mares! Yeah!

    Congratulations to everyone else too!

      Many thanks to the wonderful folks who put on this great weekend of shows!

      I agree with Chris. The quality at this show was staggering. The classes were all quite tough. I would not have wanted to be a judge — hard decisions. Some of my favorites were Dedora, Eau Claire, Dream Catcher, Abacus, Basho. I was so proud of my own homebreds who showed very well with the handling team of Sterling Graburn and Andrea Hayden. It was a weekend to remember for all time for me.

      The show was well run, had a wonderfully friendly and helpful staff and our fellow competitors were just superb folks. As usual, I didn't manage to get my own horse out to enough shows to count for year end awards, but Soliloquy will be in the running thanks to Andrea.

      I had one weird/ eerie goose-pimply part of the whole weekend. Both days when Stanza was winning her biggest prize of the day, they were playing "I Just Called to Say I Love You" in the background. Years ago I used to sing that to my dearly loved and missed first Hanoverian Gipetto when I'd clean his stall. It was sort of our song (sorry to be so sentimental, but it is what it is). It seemed kind of amazing Saturday, but when it happened a second time Sunday, I got goosebumps. I felt like my Geepers was saying, good job, Mom.

        Yes, Jos turned to me while he was pinning the Filly Championship class on Satruday and said it was a tough decision. I think he wanted to put sashes on 4 or 5 of them!

        That is really weird. I was the one doing the music and I was just slapping CDs into the player at random. I'm so glad it turned out that way for you!

        The other cool thing was when - again at random - "We Are The Champions" started playing on Saturday while they were judging the Colt Championship.

          LOL - Chris I figured the "We are the Champions" song was on purpose LOL!!!

          Mary Lou - huge congratulations are in order. There were a few of us with fillies that kept coming in just under the wire that were HOPING that Mary Lou would not enter her fillies/mares into the championships so that the rest of us would have a shot - sigh, but she just wouldn't do it!

          The competition up there is always quality and tough and it seems that it gets harder every year. You could have knocked me over with a feather when Jos placed my Emma (Emerald Fire) 2nd in her 2007 class - I was REALLY not expecting it as almost everyone around me can atest to - I had to run back to the barn to get her, I'd put her up thinking she was done for the day (there were 10 or 11 fillies in that class that day and 99% of them were amazing).

          Great show as always, and it was fun to see everyone that we only seem to see AT the shows each year!

            Well I loved the serendipity of your CD slapping. It was an ahhhh moment.

            I noticed the timing of the other song, too. Very cool.

                  The music collection had been put together by show organizer Destre Meyer. She handed me a set of CDs and I had no idea what was on any of them until they started playing. It was overall great music!

                          ML, it must be so nice to get such great recognition for your breeding program. You put so much into it and have worked so hard over the years. And I don't know anyone who is nicer, more helpful, or a better ambassador for the breed! I'm just doing the happy dance for you
                          Y'all ain't right!
