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!

  • Galatois now approved Oldenburg N/A

    I am going to tag onto Rubs not Pats opening:

    Today, Eckhardt Brysch and Helmut Schrant, representing ISR/Oldenburg N/A, made a special trip to Arizona on their way to the 70 day test, to look at two previously performance tested stallions. My new stallion Galatois, who is French and Cabalito. Both Stallions received their lifetime breeding license.

    The French registry is no longer active here in the US so Galatois needed a new home, a new registry. I have been very happy with Oldenburg N/A for all the years I stood Alla'Czar so this was an easy choice for me.
    I will also commend Oldenburg N/A for the service provided to come and inspect these two very nice and proven stallions so quickly and get this approval status secured for 2010 breeding season. Thank you.
    All went well. Trainer Renae Coates rode both stallions and if I do say so they were both brillant.

    Galatois is not a great name recognition stallion. He is 15 years old and has spent most of his life as a show horse competing with impressive success in the Hunter rings both with pro's and with his amateur rider owners. He has a great temperment, is very ammy friendly and the offspring he does have on the ground have done well in HB, hunter, eq, and jumper rings.
    Take a look. He is a nice stallion with a super pedigree, great movement and a fantastic jump.
    And now, thanks again to Oldenburg N/A, he has a life time breeding license so offspring are registy eligible.

    Congrats Camille! Galatois was a god boy! I didn't get a chance to tell you, as I was having pre inspection anxiety but I liked the young Galatois colt that you had working when we arrived. He looks to make up to be a very nice hunter!

      Congratulations! Galatois is a lovely boy who I have always admired. Not only does he have a great sire line (Galoubet) but his dam is the excellent grand prix jumping mare The Empress. (I am showing my age as I do remember her!) I love the write up on him-I did not know his dam had an untimely end. So good that the genes of both these wonderful horses have been preserved.

      (And Cabilito seems to have found a happy home where he can continue to produce those beautiful babies!) Congrats to all!

        Congrats, Camille! Glad you've got another "man in your life!"

          Congrats Camille. He is a lovely stallion!

            Congrats, Camille! Thank you for allowing me to come to watch the inspection. Your boy looked great, and really strutted his stuff! Impressive, especially since he'd been out of work for quite awhile. Not that anyone can replace Alla Czar in our hearts, but your new fella looks to be a great new option for the hunter stallion market!

              Very exciting - congrats!!

                My goodness! What a lovely stallion. I wish I still had a mare! Congratulations!

                  Congrats!! He's LOVELY! Sounds like a great guy to have around too!

                  [I'm slightly biased about his sire, I'll admit it--and I do have an all-red head stable]

                    Galatois is just lovely. It seems as though his temperament matches his looks. Congratulations on getting your gorgeous new boy approved!

                        Congratulations, Darkhorse!!! I love Galatois! I envied his previous owners when they had him and now I can envy you. I always enjoyed watching him go. He's a very nice boy!!! If I was to breed one of my girls, he'd be first on the list.

                          Glad he got a new home. We need that Galoubet blood in the US. Good luck with him.

                            Thanks talloaks. I am hopeful that being in a new and more user friendly registry, no disrespect to the French Registry but I have not found them to be the easiest to work with: just MHO, so anyway I am hopeful that with this new approval and with the network and mare base that Oldenburg N/A has that Galatois will get some interest.
