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!

  • Carol Lush

    I have very sad news for all her friends, supporters and the horse community at large. Carol Lush passed away at her home, Mapleside Farm, early Sunday morning, July, 19. She had waged the bravest of battles against cancer for over 2 years and finally could fight no more. Her passing was peaceful and she was surrounded by loved ones, both friends and family, constantly during her last days. She was so loved and will be deeply and truly missed.

      So sorry to hear that. I didn't know her well, but she seemed like a lovely person, and of course I'll always be grateful to her for producing my Slate.

        What sad news. I hope she is in a better place, for her, and out of pain. Isn't it nice to know she had friends and family with her when she passed. I know she will be missed.

            I'm so sorry to hear of her passing. My Bubba is by her lovely stallion Mapleside Mr. Magic.

              The hunter/jumper and sport horse breeding world has lost a great mind and the knowledge to produce lovely, talented horses. Our world is a little emptier today.

              So sad. What a great human being.

                Very sad to hear this. I have a lovely 3 yr old by Carol's stallion Magical -- he'll get extra hug tonight - although I never met Carol in person, she was delightful to deal with when it came to breeding and I'm sorry I never got a picture of Truman off to her -- I'm glad she went peacefully and with friends and family at her side......I always like to think when great horsewomen (and men) cross over the bridge all their horses (dogs and cats) are there to greet them!

                  R.I.P. She was a wonderful person. I only met her just in the last several months through mutual friends, and business arrangements of her horses. I was just at her place on Friday to pick up a gelding we purchased from her. All her ponies and horses are gorgeous! She really loved her horses and did the best she could to find them good homes. Her legacy will live on in them..

                    I am so sad to hear that Carol has left us. She was a devoted and dedicated horsewoman, and an honest and knowledgeable lady. She was the breeder of some wonderful ponies and will leave an amazing legacy. God speed, Carol. You will be missed.

                        Carol was lovely to do business with. She loved her horses and ponies so much and dealt with all situations with the kind of integrity one seldom experiences. She will be missed and her legacy will live on. Sad news, sad loss.

                          That is so sad to hear. I never met her but she had talked to my trainer about some of her horses while she was trying to get them back and I followed the thread listing the ordeal she was going through. I'm so glad she got most of her horses back before she died. At least she had some resolution on that problem.

                              Carol was a great person, intelligent and brave, rational when she was trying to retrieve her ponies, willing to help others. She faced her cancer with courage and resolution. I heard a great story today about her helping a neighbor who had an injured GSD years ago, going thru a snowstorm to help out.
                              Carol was lucky too, as she had wonderful friends, Alix and Kane and Julie and Kate and Mimi and Peggy (who was heroic in the final weeks) and of course Steve, they had been together since they were 17 yoa!. That group of friends stood beside Carol in the last two years when she needed their support.
                              Her legacy will be her ponies and her friends. Carol knew how much you cared for her and how much you did for her.
                              Funeral is Thursday in Allentown.

                                    OOps- I also posted this news in the Sport Horse forum. Didn't think to check if it was posted here first. My apologies.
