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!

  • Looking forward to SpyCoast YHS this weekend.........who's going?

    After a hectic holiday, I"m looking forward to attending the YHS show this weekend.........as the guest of owner of a horse I bred and sold them......
    Monticello, aka Monty (and originally named Impeccable by me) has been doing some on the line , including winning his class at Devon, BYH at a show in Wellington, etc....He will be considered a 4 year old
    His dam is Claim to Fame's full sister...........

    A second youngster I'll be pulling for is Count my Blessings, a black pinto yearling by Counterclaim. His dam was hit by lightning when she was only 30 days in foal, and the owner's husband saw it, jumped on her chest and blew in her nose and revived her. The colt was born with a small heart on his neck (white pattern on the black neck) and is very special to his owner, Shannon Shiller of Majestic Acres Sporthorses.......It'll mean so much to have him do well......what a story!!

    My Claim to Fame four year old, pictured below, will be staying home........she took a chip out of her hoof wall, but will be fine.....bad timing!

    Sakura Hill Farm is prepping Ultra-niki Z, a 5 yr. old mare by Ulysses m2s out of the Zaniki daughter Ushiniki as well as the yearling filly Cantanita S by Canturo out of the Harnita (by Ahorn) daughter Ahsianita for the Finals this weekend. Monica will be the photographer/videographer with her The Equine Media Project. The Finals were great fun last year when Michele went as spectator and Monica as photographer--we are doubling (tripling?) the fun by bringing 2 finalists with us this year!

    The Program that has been issued is not only beautiful but informative and bodes well for an opportunity to see many fine sporthorses all in one spot. Looking forward to seeing lots of friends-- breeders, competitors, trainers-- there and making it a real social event!

      Meeeeeee!!

      Of course I am bringing Uphoria by UB40 to show in the 2 year old in hand division. I am so excited! And hopefully can meet some people from here since it seems it will be more relaxing then the qualifier in Wellington, so come say hi to me everyone!! I am looking forward to seeing the new showgrounds, haven't been there yet, first time in an indoor arena with most of the babies I'm sure.

      Good luck to everyone!! Can't wait to see all the fancy babies

        I'm looking forward to seeing Rising Star's horses (or seeing picture updates anyway, I'll be here in GA) - I believe she is taking Cartier and Diabalo D'Esquilmes (that would probably be one butchered spelling, but it's DeeDee by Chin Chin) and one other. Or maybe more than one more.
        Your crazy is showing. You might want to tuck that back in.

          LOL DMK

          I am taking our Chin Chin son, Diabolo d'Esquelmes for the jump chute final. Cartier R (our Cassini I son) will be going to participate in the Stallon Show. We were going to take Jus d'O, but he's in such a butt high stage (he's going to finish BIG) that it wouldn't be fair to him.

          I'll also be manning the Stud-Book sBs booth while I'm there Looking forward to putting faces to names, catching up with old friends and getting out of the COLD!

              We were really hoping to get down there to watch the colt we bred Ed Venture by Escapade out of DoUThinkUCanDance compete as well as several of our friends horses. Still trying to make a last ditch effort to go. It would be great to see everyone again!Here is our boy Eddie, now owned by Danielle C.

                              We are going w/ a small crew!
                              Kyra Bay will be shown in hand 2yr old and hope she can repeat her win from last year. She has not been shown in a while but has started under saddle a few times and has been just as easy as can be.
                              Jett B will be shown 3yr jump chute. He has been under saddle w/ Shawn Filley in dressage and has grown up to be a big boy. He will start his jumping schooling this year.
                              Iconic Bay will be shown in the 4yr old jump chute and jumping under saddle. He has finished his 4 yr old BWP stallion requirements and will be shown in the 5 yr young jumpers and the C/A this year.
                              Kinetic Bay will be shown in 2yr old jump chute. He has been sold to Erica Kahn and Acorn Creek Stables and wee look forward to seeing him do well. He is growing by leaps and bounds and should be exciting to watch in the jump chute.

                              currently clipping and pulling manes in preparation!

                              see you all there.

                                  Just heard from Sam Werner - Uphoria (UB40 x Arabian mare BF MoonFyre) just won his 2 year old class with an 8.63. Next highest score of the entire show so far is 8.10.

                                  Final day is tomorrow.

                                  I am so very proud of them!

                                      There are soooo many nice horses, it is such a great event!

                                        I was there for some of the events on Sat including the stallions. I commend The series and the participants for doing this! Lots of nice horses and I hope that more will take advantage of this opportunity as participants and spectators.

                                        It's something we all need for the benefit of all.
