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!

  • 110-day test stallions? Anyone?

    Does anyone have a list of which stallions are attending the testing? I've searched online, including the NAFSHB site to no avail.

      Seems like a high number coming from the West Coast.

      Hope the CA stallions adjust to humidity.

      It's 30% here today in SoCal and that is REALLY high for us.

        8YO????????????

        I can't believe that they are putting an 8YO (Gatsby) next to 3 YO's and 4 YO's (and probably they will only give them the 5-point handicap). The 5 point handicap was designed in Germany to differentiate between the 3 YO's and the few 4 YO's....but here.. Andras www.prairiepinesfarm.com

          Well, you know, thanks in large part to YOU and a couple others, they weren't able to hold the testing for the past two years, so this stallion couldn't attend. What do you expect them to do with this stallion? Tell him tough sh*t. Go away?

            OHHHH. That is the equivalent of telling the wife beater that it is the wife's fault.

            You know it WAS investigated and despite numerous lawsuit threats, including one to me, it was determined that there were LOTS of problems. Get a fricking grip.

            The only reason people are giving it a second chance is because of people like us who, despite the law suit threats, tried to get the word out. You ought to thank us because without us, there would not be Suzanne Quarles overseeing it on the stallion owners' behalf.

            If they screw it up again, there probably won't ever be another test - because no one will send one.

                110-day test

                Wow! bloody.....can one or more of the individuals responding to the original post fill in a newbee as to what everyone is discussing in this public forum? I understand we are discussing the 100-day stallion test for NA, but what were the original complaints that caused the admins to add a voice for the stallion owners? I don't really care who's fault it was that it was cancelled last year. Thanks.

                  The main complaint was a lack of communication between the testing staff and the stallion owners. Many of the "issues" would have not existed if there had been better communication. Easy fix - appoint someone who would be the intermediary between the testing staff and the stallion owners.

                  It's not as dramatic as some would like it to seem.

                    Sonesta, you just choose to believe what you want and you haven't been "clued in" for very long either.

                    I know a lot of what happened at the last test.....and I know a lot of what happened at the test BEFORE that one too....you know, the one that was so successfully swept under the rug. And no, I don't even own a stallion so don't start with the sour grapes thing. But I DO KNOW a lot of what happened.

                    Curious though, since you are self proclaiming to know. Have you put a stallion through? Have you personally spoken to very many of the stallion owners who have put stallions through? If you have, over how many tests and how many stallion owners?

                      No Tri, you got that all backwards, despite us would be the proper wording. There are people like Suzanne volunteering despite people like yourself.

                      I was in the board meetings discussing these tests and I was there when we did not take the steps needed to have our interest in the test represented and I was there when we did.

                      I know that Sonnesta has been in the middle of it for several years video taping the mid terms and finals and providing them for owners who were not able to make it. Quite a nice service I would say and now she has put an educational DVD together for interrested stallion owners about the test and prep.

                      Since this is so important to many, you as well Tri why not give it a chance, you, me, Sonnesta and many others are trying for the best in our own ways. I am pleased so far but stallions may still get hurt and some will not make it, that is what part of this test is supposed to do but we all want the best possible results which gives us a first indication of a stallions talent and possibility of a breeding career.

                        Sonesta,

                        You have been a great proponent and supporter of the 100-day testing. I also support the concept, as is written down....but not the way it is actually implemented here. Unfortunately you have only attended the final 3 days of the stallion testings (which is always fun) and you have no idea what has gone on there on a day-to-day basis. It is not the lack of communication - it is the LACK OF HORSEMANSHIP what was the problem. Just read the results of the investigation by the Federation of North American Sporthorse Registries. Sincerely, Andras www.prairiepinesfarm.com

                          What is your problem? Attend math classes!

                          Thanks to me, changes were prompted, after years of very bad things happening at the testing. But sticking to the subject: If my math is correct, in 2004, at the time of the last testing, Gatsby was 5 years old. At the time of the 2002 100-day testing, he was a 3 YO. He had plenty of opportunity to go. The test is DESIGNED for 3 year-olds, with the occassional 4 YO present. What they should have told himl that he should get his requirements through sport - or, if they want the owner's money that bad, they should assign handicap points for each additional year....otherwise this test has no actual meaning.

                            Edgar, I am giving it a chance. I am waiting to see what the outcome is and if they don't mess this testing up, I will once again - as I used to be - be a proponent of the testing.

                            I honestly don't think it was "despite us", as you say. And, I don't believe YOU believe that either. I'm calling you on it. You wanted the changes as much as we did and you were frustrated with the inaction and the denials as much as we were. Maybe you did or did not recieve the "shut up or else" lawsuit threats that MANY of us recieved. And that was when we were NOT going public but trying to work within the system directly with the people responsible. It pissed us off and it is ONLY then that many of us got vocal regarding the problems.

                            I should have done it sooner. I did shut up after the test before last, thinking they would fix the problem although not acknowledge them. But then look what happened at the very next test. It was even worse but at least more people knew about it and, like me, more willing to talk about it.

                            Edgar, maybe you can look at yourself in the mirror and rationalize your silence as being "good for the overall registry goals". But I am here to say that I formally apologize to all the stallion owners for not speaking up sooner.

                            Shame on you Edgar. I thought more of you than that.

                                Ok, how about the Federation of North American Sporthorse Registries? They were concerned enough to do an investigation and found a lot of problems, now didn't they? Are you taking them seriously?

                                  Edited because I won't be drawn into a snark fest with tri. Fish below has posted a link that should somewhere on it have a copy of the letter from the Federation investigation (Hey! I posted it there!) so those interested can see for themselves that there was a lot of smoke (allegations) but very little fire.

                                      Tri I think you want to look important because belittleling people who actually are part of the progress is not so effective. Everybody can sit back and wait and everybody can pick and choose things to critique. Being a loud mouth on an internet site does not do a thing positive to be part of the solution. I choose to use effective channels to improve the test. You it seems are stuck in the past with allegations which mostly did not prove anything. now we go on making it the best we can regardless and despite......
