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!

  • RIP PineTree Farm aka Sally Rosenberg

    Sally passed away unexpectedly on Sunday.

    I'm still in shock.

    Sally was involved in h/js, especially on Long Island for many decades and was show secretary for many shows on LI.

    She was also my very dear friend, partner-in-crime and huge supporter/fan of Cyriz's.

    She will be missed more than I can say.

    RIP Sally.

                            I am so very sorry to hear of Sally's passing. Sally and I competed together as juniors, and she was my maid of honor at my wedding in '68. We hadn't seen each other for so many years, until 2005. Sally went with me to a horse show with my "Sparkle" and also to her inspection. Then I made the trip to Texas with her to see Cyriz and she bought Sydeways. I had not seen Sally since 2005. Although she was at Warrenton last year when I was there, she didn't stop to say hi. Too late now.

                            Sally and I were still too competitive and she poked at me for showing in Hunter Breeding. Age does slow one down.

                            How uncanny that on Sunday, I searched COTH and saw that Sally had not posted in a while. I feared that she had taken ill. She was a very heavy smoker. My premonition shocked me when I saw this thread.

                            RIP Sally, hope you were reunited with your wonderful "Charlemayne."

                            Sorry for your loss Cyriz Mom, hope her horses will be taken care of.

                              I will also miss her and had missed her posts. I only knew her from these forums, but enjoyed and respected her contributions, especially on all related to TB's. So sorry she is gone, and condolences to all fortunate enough to have known her and her horses in the "real" as well as virtual world.

                                I enjoyed her posts as well, condolences to her family and friends. She will be a loss to this community, that's for sure.

                                  shf - I am sorry that you feel a condolence thread is a place to air hurt feelings. Yes, we saw you across the ring at Warrenton and no we didn't hike around to say "hi". Of course, neither did you.

                                  Sally was a breast cancer survivor of almost 8 yrs. She had some health issues due to the side effects of the chemo. However, in the 8 yrs. I knew her, I never knew her to smoke and again, if she did in the past, why mention it now.

                                  I hope that the little barbs in your post on this forum and on the h/j thread make you feel better and you're happy you got the last word in.

                                  Sally lived almost all her life on LI and made the decision to move to Aiken a couple years ago. Honestly, I was a bit concerned about her making such a huge change alone. Silly me! I was in awe of the way she adapted and jumped into all things horsey in Aiken...polo matches, breakfast at the track grill, the h/j shows, relearning how to drive, taking a master gardener class at the college, all while continuing to show secretary and keep points on LI. I think she had driven back and forth about six times already this year to see Charlie show and to work a show.

                                  She was a wealth of information on the history of the h/j world in the Northeast for the last 30 or 40 years.

                                  I hope you all will forgive me for my comments to shf...there was a lot of history between the two of them and it just really bothered me that she would take this opportunity to make unnecessary comments after Sally's passing.

                                    As others have said, losing a loved one and friend unexpectedly is so difficult. I am so very sorry. My condolences to all who knew and loved her.

                                      Cyriz Mom, I was NOT using the thread to do anything more than say I was very sorry to hear Sally had died. Especially, since I had just thought about her on Sunday, which is uncanny, isn't it?

                                      There was NOT alot of "history" between Sally and I. I have lost someone I knew through the 60's and early 70s, and met again in 2005.

                                      I lived on Long Island until 1988 when I bought my farm in Maryland, which Sally was invited to visit in 2005.

                                      Perhaps she stopped smoking after our visit to your farm in 2005, she was smoking heavily at that point, and had been a chain smoker in the 60s.

                                      Sally was not a customer of mine, as horses are a hobby for me, but she was someone I knew. AND, yes, I feel very sad that she is gone.

                                      There was no barb or ill feelings expressed in my post, only those you choose to read into it.

                                      Again: RIP Sally

                                        SHF... I don't know anyone involved beyond this forum, and that was how I read it as well. So I don't mean to be contrary but you may want to reread your post with fresh eyes, I think it was less her reading into it than your, unintentional as it may be, tone.
