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!

  • Attn Breeders in SE - Southern Hospitality Breeders Classic

    I was informed this afternoon that this show may possibly go on, despite GDCTA cancelling it 4 days before the closing date due to low entries. Several area breeders are working with another show organizer to take over as sponsors/managers and are waiting for approval from USEF/USDF. I will post more info as soon as it becomes available.

    In response to this cancellation SSHA who is having two shows plus the finals the weekend of 9/19-20 in Ocala will accept late entries received by September 16th with no penalties. Details and download of prizelist and entry form here:

    Please note there are two separate shows on this weekend, so you need to send two separate entry forms for Saturday and Sunday.

        All I know at this time is that the facility is still secured (GIHP - Conyers). I am pretty sure the judges are also secure. I do not know, though, if they are going to try for a one day or two day show. Early entries were apparently VERY light, but it was a shock to many folks that the show committee decided to cancel before the closing date. Many people wait until the very last minute to send in show entries, esp. folks that are still trying to get registry paperwork for foals and/or working on All Breed Declarations with USDF.

        OTOH, entries at the GA breed shows have been dwindling in the past few years as there really aren't very many dedicated breeders in this area, and the economy has made things tough for a lot of people. The timing is also a bit difficult as there are several inspections in the area the week before and week after, and folks do not want to haul to both, so are passing up on the show this year.

        There should be more info available today, so stay tuned.

          Thanks Chris - I know, this has been a strange year for breed shows. I had planned on taking my horses to their 3rd show here local to me, but first the date got changed, then it was cancelled all together.

          I actually opted for the GA show because of distance/time. I didn't want to haul 12 hours to TN when I could go 4 hours to GA. The weekend after the GA show is SE Finals in Ocala which might have affected the GA show's entries. I can't take my filly to that show because of DAD which starts the Tues after the show in Ocala. (the filly is not who I'm taking to DAD)

          I heard that the entries were light in GA - it would actually make sense to have it all on one day with both judges judging (one after the other). If Jos did the IBC's I'd enter my IBC as well as the regular class.

          I'd offer to help but am returning on Friday from OR.

            Word just in - there will be a one-day show at Conyers on Sept. 12, with Jos Sevriens judging. Ann Genovese / Good Horseman Foundation is the new show organizer. A revised prize list is being finalized as we speak and should be available tomorrow. They need volunteers, so if interested in helping, please contact Ann ASAP.

              GA USDFBC Breed Show is GREEN Light

              Hi Everyone.... there were several GA and FL breeders who would have been severely disadvantaged by cancellation of the GA USDFBC show. We received a green light this AM from USEF and USDF to place the USDFBC and IBC classes under The GoodHorseman / Collecting Gaits Farm Dressage show. Unfortunately, since GDCTA would not release the competitions directly, the only recourse was to modify the existing GHF dressage competition to include the breed classes, thus the opportunity for a 2nd qualifying score in GA had to be sacrified. But, we are delighted to get the one qualifying event back on the calendar so that between GA and FL shows, breeders can get their 3 qualifying scores. A big THANK YOU to Ann Genovese for taking this on with less than 2 weeks until show date !!

              Show Specifics
              - Saturday, Sep.12.2009 at GA International Horse Park
              - ONE qualifying competition with all of the USDFBC classes
              - IBC classes for 7 breeds
              - Jos Sevriens is the judge for USDFBC and the IBC classes
              - Prize list will be published tonight on http://www.GoodHorseman.org
              - Extended Closing date is Sunday, Sep.6.2009

              Will post more information when we finish the revised prize list.

                Best of luck to you on the show. Good job in putting something back together.

                Hoping we also get a decent turnout the following weekend in FL for the finals.

                      FWIW, the GDCTA website does not say anything about the show being cancelled, and still contains a link to the show info and prize list. I hope they correct this ASAP, and post info pointing people to the new prize list when it is posted on the Good Horseman site.

                          Annetta, I think you mean Sept. 12.

                          Closing date for the breed show is Sept. 6. There is a typo on the front cover of the revised prized list - it shows a closing date of Aug. 6.
