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!

  • Signature Sporthorses ~ Anyone deal with them?

    I was wondering about Signature Sporthorses????
    http://p2.hostingprod.com/@signaturesporthorses.com

    I loved a colt they bred in 2008 named Dresden and actually inquired about him. I was afraid he would not be big enough for me. Besides if memory serves me correct... someone had purchased him in utero and either changed their mind or was having trouble coming up with the money...made me alittle nervous. Needless to say I found another colt.
    However, I have a friend who is having a tough time with them. What are some other experiences with this neighbor/partner team?

    They had a lovely foal at Warrenton this year.

    Jennifer and Jessica have great reputations for being honest and knowledgable breeders. I have always found their posts on the different BB's as very informative.
    They sure have bred some amazing horses.

      What Genevieve said. I've never heard a bad word about them, only positive comments & they certainly do breed lovely horses.

        I've admired their program for a long time. They are wonderful horsewomen and very well respected.

          As my Mother has always said, "if you don't have anything good to say" and I'm afraid my information tells me otherwise. These things have a way of making themselves known so I need not add any further comments. Suffice it to say "do your homework."

              The horse world is such a small small place. Dance on the head of a pin. Doing the right thing far outweighs a "business" decision. Things have a wonderful way of coming full circle. When a horse becomes a commodity, true colours shine through.

                Your talking to a group of people who just last week said they run their breeding operation like a business. What's wrong with people making money, last time I checked this was a democracy. Is it different in Canada?

                  No, there are questionable people in Canada as well but I don't believe that's the issue here. By the way, it is you're as in you are and not your. Always an annoyance.

                      My dealings with them have been extremely pleasant. They have been very easy to work with, and I know them to be very nice, caring horsewomen! (to people and to the horses!!)
                      So sorry to hear of your troubles.....hope it works out for everyone!!!

                        I've met them and they are practically my neighbors...live maybe 10 miles away. Both Jennifer and Jessica have been nothing but friendly to me and have generously offered help in the past when I've had sick or injured horses. I have no idea what your problem is with them but I can't think of a nastier snarkier way of dealing with it than posting a thread like this.

                            Since you are referring to one half of me a I will respond. My partner and I are usually very quiet and do not like to get involved in drama but I refuse to have our business smeared by known troublemakers on a public board.




                            Yes we own a horse that Deb Day (3dogs) once owned . We bought her from a good friend of ours that bought the horse when 3dogs owned her.

                            We offered to allow 3dogs to buy her back at what we deemed a reasonable price and much less then she sold her to our friend for. She was not for sale as we do not normally sell any of our broodmares. In fact we have only ever had 2 leave us (other then passing away in retirement) one went to a fantastic riding home and the other is now with a good friend and may come back to us eventually.

                            3dogs has emailed us " I will pursue legal action against ____, and then you for recovery of the mare. I really don’t think you wish that for ___, do you? From what I am told, she has been quite ill."

                            She has threatened this if we do not reveal to her our business transaction with the seller, which we will not do during this transaction nor ANY other transaction. What I can only guess is what 3dogs wants is the mare back for free.



                            And Mamare I am sorry if a call was not returned, somehow we must have missed your voicemail as we certainly feel that customer service is one of the most important aspects of this business.

                              monami, to which half do you refer? I can only surmise. There are pertinent points to this story which are not being mentioned.

                                Im sad to see this being smeared around a public BB for the use of malicious reasons.
                                I hope the two of you can work it out.
                                I know enough of the horse world never to judge anyone based on half sense of internet postings. There is always one person story, the other persons story and then there is the truth of it all.
                                Good luck to everyone involved on finding some middle ground.

                                    What a horrible thread.

                                    I have a strong dislike of seeing people smeared on a public forum. FWIW, I think it is just wrong.

                                    And I know NONE of the parties involved personally.

                                        I would agree this would be better discussed and solved in another arena. I don't know either side of the story, but I hope both parties can decide on an outcome that is fair and amicable.
