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!

  • It's Payback Time!

    The SHN PAYBACK program is ready to launch the 2010 breeding purchase season on September 1, 2009.

    Already listing over 300 champion stallions of all breeds, mare owners can save 50% on regular stud fees. Breedings are sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

    The 2010 Roster can be seen here:

    http://www.shnpayback.com/Stallions.html

    Details including money-back guarantee, are available on the PAYBACK website.

    SHN PAYBACK INC. is a 501(c)(5) non-profit.

    Stinks that almost all the non-arab stallions are for arab mares only Is there a time limit to that, as if they aren't sold by a certian date they'll be open to all mares? I think I remember there being quite a few of them from last year that wound up not selling too.

        We did this for Apiro as his breeding was sold last year immediately following being posted just so that it will give the Arabian breeders a chance at it. If it doesn't sell within 30 days, we will open it up to all breeds.

          These stallion owners aren't in the charity business. It is in their best interest to get some Arab crosses on the ground, so they can win $$ too!

          I must say that I am thrilled that these owners see these crosses as a positive for their stallions and really embrace this program. Thank you all!

                  We chose to have Nevada's breeding for Arabian or Anglo-Arab mares only as we are really interested in seeing more of those type of crosses, even though the foals out of Anglo-Arab mares will not be eligable for the Payback awards..

                    I often receive emails from SHN Payback and have never understood what this is about. Could someone please give me some insight what it is and why I get emails and what the reason is of this program??? Thanks in advance.

                      Its my understanding that this program was started to generated prize $$ for competitors and breeders at the Arabian & Half Arabian Sport Horse Nationals. Stallion owners donated 1 breeding to be purchased at 50% of the advertised price. That one breeding nominates all of his Arabian bred foals for prize $$ at SHN. If those foals win at SHN there is a kickback to the stallion owner.

                      This has proved to be a brilliant idea! This year there is close to $50,000 in prize $$ at SHN generated by this program. And I'm sure 2010 will be more

                      I have a Hanoverian approved Arabian mare and I'm hoping that a few Hanoverian stallions join this program, as I really want to support this program by purchasing a breeding.

                        The 2 Top Sires (sires of the most winners in the entire show) split 10% of the total prize money raised. This year that will be $2500 each.

                        With the first nomination of the stallion, all of his offspring conceived that year and any already on the ground are eligible for life to win the Payback money. Subsequent foaling years require subsequent year donations. There are no fees whatsoever to participate!

                        This year, we will Payback in 20 classes (in all disciplines) offered at the show. Each class will split $2,250 between Champion, Reserve and/or Top Ten.

                          This program was started for several reasons. Primarily it was a way to raise money to reward those Arabian bred horses (purebred, Half Arab, and Anglo Arabian) competing in the Sport type disciplines. Too often the Arabian association would not give these horses equal consideration in their prize money programs. So SHN Payback was born to correct this oversight. (SHN = Sport Horse Nationals). The goal being, to encourage the breeding of highly competitive sport horses with Arabian blood.

                          Other benefits of the program are: It helps mare owners (any breed of mare) by providing a single resource they can go to inorder to find a stallion that they know is a champion or a sire of champions (required for stallions to be in the program) and they can purchase the breeding at half price. Then, if the foal is Arabian bred, it encourages the owners to show this foal throughout its life with the incentive of winning the prize money ($50,000 this year). It also helps mare owners because the program is completely FREE. There are no nomination fees of any kind. This also benefits the foal itself, as it helps to ensure it will get the training so it can be competitive. There is also cooperative advertising for all get of the enrolled stallions, plus a page on the website to list progeny for sale that are sired by enrolled stallions. It also makes the foals more marketable by having them eligible to win prize money throughout their lives that only the progeny of enrolled stallions can win. The design of the program as a first-come first-served instead of an auction is because people these days are too busy to keep checking back to see if they have won their breeding. This eliminates the hassle of repeated bidding and of wondering how high the bidding may go.

                          It helps the stallion owners because they get free advertising by being a part of a program that is given extremely high visibility through weekly mailings, press releases both online and in glossy magazines, and on the website where thousands of mare owners shop daily. It also makes the stallion owners eligible to win 5 % of the total earnings each year. This year, the top two sires at the SHNs will each get $2,500. This is computed by tabulating the winnings of their get in all classes at the show. This in turn, encourages the breeding of foals with enough Arabian blood to qualify to compete. And unlike futurity programs, once a stallion is enrolled, all of his get of any age are automatically and immediately enrolled. Plus, many mare owners will only breed to SHN Payback enrolled stallions to ensure their foals have the marketing boost and advertising options that other foals do not. Stallion owners are also eligible to participate in the cooperative advertising done by the SHN Payback program to further increase the visibility of their stallions without incurring a huge cost. Stallion owners also benefit by the incentive this prize money gives the owners of their stallion's get, making it more likely his offspring will be promoted in the ring.

                          The money raised each year is 100% paid back out to the participants. None of the money is retained for administration costs.

                          I think that about sums it up.
