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!

  • Anyone know where Capone is?

    I have a friend who needs to locate Capone's owners for a signature on registration papers. I know he is (or perhaps was) a GP jumper and is an approved Holsteiner stallion.

    Does anyone know how to find him?

    Couldn't resist. Seriously Foxdale Farm, do a search, this topic got quite a bit of discussion last week.

      Capone is in hiding, somewhere along the Afghanistan/Pakistan border.


      (seriously, there appears to be some dispute about ownership, from the bits I've heard, so it may be a while before you get that signature)

        I heard he was seen on the back of a Moroccan grape picker last? Was that not him??

          I would contact any registries he is registered with (not necesarily approved by) and see what is listed on his papers re: any change of ownership. And see if the currently listed owner can be located for the signature. It is not so much about where the horse is but where the owner is. While there may be dispute about ownership currently, I would think your friend's registry would have to to accept the signature of whoever is currently listed.

          Whoever owns the horse (or purports to own the horse) would want to be helpful, I would think, so that people aren't scared away from using this lovely horse because of, shall we say, difficulties with respect to the ownership.

              Thanks for the helpful suggestions. The filly is 2 years old and is 1/2 Arabian. I'll try to get a hold of Corrine to see if I can get anywhere with it. It's not such a big deal to me personally, just trying to help out a friend.

                  I have seen the horse jumping in Ocala last year. He is really a nice animal. Don't know the owners but hear plenty of crap in their regard. Mostly on here.

                  What I find amazing about the very nature of these forums is trashing a person seems almost fun for some and often encouraged by threads that go on for days, yet if you rethink the process is this not another form of black advertising , and for even having mentioned the word ADVERTISING our very existence here is punishable by banishment and branded for life, and the most highly respected and well liked owners of some of the very best stallions who we may today worship and adore spend hard earned dollars to receive a modest breeding book per year for paying top dollars to place ads in cluttered poorly constructed publications which may one year print nicely and the following be one step above toilet paper, so I ask you all where is the justice?

                      Could someone please PM Hocus Focus the link that shows what Mr. Spink does to his horses and his dogs. After what I saw I wanted to claw my eyes out. Didn't feel right for 3 weeks.

                      I hope Mr. Spink never gets Capone back and I hope Kyle King would get ownership.

                        Like I said, I do not know the owners. I just know of the horse and I am not sure dirty laundry should have its place here, but I guess in today's society that is called "NEWS".

                          Reg- the stallion manager is not being trashed at all. I've only heard positive comments regarding her and the management of the stallion The stallion owner is a whole nother ball of wax. Before you chastise, you probably need to go research the owner. I think you'll understand why the owner is not spoken well of on this forum.

                            This may well be the case and you may well be correct. I do not have all of the information to form judgement, nor do I consider it my place to do so.

                              Maybe it's not our place...

                              But I have this dream of doing business with ethical people. If I'm buying, breeding, selling, whatever- I like to know my money is going to someone who does the right things, who doesn't partake in potentially abusive behavior, etc.

                              It's along the same lines as not wanting to take lessons with Paul Valliere. For the same reason, I would not want to put money in the owner's pocket- in a way it's rewarding him and condoning (on some level) the twisted things he's done (in addition to the criminal things he's done). Maybe I'm naive, I don't know.

                              I really hope that all of this is ironed out to the horse's benefit- he's really an amazing stallion with a lot to offer.

                              As for the specific "rumors"- if you don't want something to be public/common knowledge, you don't put it on the internet.

                                    And especially don't put it on the internet with graphic pictures.

                                    There is a line between taking the high road and staying out of the business of others, and hiding your head in the sand. If you knew someone was, for example, a child molester, or an animal abuser, or into beastiality, or other criminal activity, and your attitude is "That's none of my business!", then you're probably on the wrong side of that not-so-fine line.

                                    It's really not in the same universe as being banned from a BB.

                                        Thanks for the offer but No thanks. It is not something I personally would get any enjoyment out of, and that is partially the point that seems to not be noted here.
