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!

  • The coth stallion issue is out!!

    I was very surprised to see the Chronicle of the Horse Stallion Issue in my mailbox this evening, along with a so many other things. It is right on time this year!! I'll have to spend some time looking through it but on first glance it seems as if there are a lot of stallions doing the hunter breeding and plenty of usuals are missing!!!

    Is there a jealousy icon??? I'll be surprised to see the stallion issue before Wednesday. Sigh. And I live in VA even! And my laptop is getting a new hard drive so I can't even take that to town and download the issue (there is no way I can download it at the farm - it's really really really slow dial-up out here!). Is there any way to view it online without downloading???

      I agree with Talloaks - lots of hunter/jumper stallions and nothing that really jumps out at you except the Trakehner spread!! Very well done! The rest is a big yawn... in my opinionl

        We boring hunter/jumper people have had to search through tons of dressage stallion ads for years, so to hear it is heavy on the H/J is thrilling!

        To clarify - the number of H/J stallion ads has been on the rise - there were a lot of them last year as well.

          I'm so pleased that I won't be as bored as usual with the stallion issue. Those dressage horses can really make you nod off.

          Sort of kidding but the Hunter/Jumper market is SO much bigger than the dressage market that it makes sense to see more Hunter/Jumper ads.

              Just curious- who did you choose to advertise with?

                A mere 4 pages less than last year. The color seps much better this year than some I can remember. The ATA ad was super designed - congrats to whoever did that one.

                New stallion ads and many updated ones. Lots of hunters ... maybe a few more eventers this year? Now that it has been mentioned, I think - yes - less dressage stallions.

                A nice painting of Rio Grande on the cover and nice article inside. Another article on Live Cover or AI.

                Plenty of nice guys to drool over no matter what your discipline.

                Hope everyone receives their copy soon.

                        Wonderful to see Rio Grande featured with a beauiful picture, in Canada he had always been in our hearts for a very long time. It was my admiration for him, Radiator and Robinson that persuaded me to buy Raffaello, another son of Raphael.
                        We advertised for the first year in the Chronicle of the Horse, with the American Holsteiner Horse Association who are also advertising their Stallion Service Auction for 2008. Our Holsteiner stallion Cotopaxi is donated. News that the issue was out surprised me and prompted me to stay up all night trying to work some bugs out of my website and update with new pictures. Stallion owners really do strive to give you the information you need to make good evaluations.

                        Cheers!

                              This is the first year I have not advertised in COTH after many years of doing so.

                              Many of the "usuals" (with well proven and wonderful, established stallions) have moved on to newer, less controversial venues, understanding that the high price of advertising in COTH's edition is not money is well spent knowing that most mare owners are more interested in the new kids on the block...coupled with the fear of becoming lumped into he "greedy, self promoting stallion owner" conversations that seemed to run rampant on the COTH BB earlier this year.

                                Just The Best

                                I really like Just The Best as a hunter stallion. I have seen several of his offspring and they are all so nice. I have considered breeding to him. Anyone have any experiences? I have a 3 yr old Swedish mare (actually a pic of her is in the Stallion issue for her father). I would like a hunter stallion that can add a bit of size to her and a little less blood. I'm not sure how Best is when it comes to these things...anyone??

                                  We pulled ours as well and went with Hunter and Sporthorse, Equine Journel. They are much cheaper as well.

                                    Maybe a mere 4 pages less, but think of the income you WOULD have had if the rest of the regulars would have did ads. Boring Dressage horses or not, that was ALOT of money lost.

                                        The stallion issue is apparently four pages shorter this year. FOUR PAGES. Big deal. Hardly a huge significant change, or somehow indicitive of the power of the braggarts and banned bb members.

                                        Some of you think far too highly of yourselves and your imagined power, imho.

                                        Also has it occured to anyone, a lot of horse people are struggling. The costs of everything from fuel to hay have gone up. People are breeding less. People are dumping broodmares dirt cheap. I am sure THAT had a lot more to do with the stallion issue being a whopping four pages shorter than any ridiculous childish internet power struggle over who gets to brag and where and how much.

                                        Get over yourselves, some of you.

                                        I think this year's stallion issue is fabulous, like always.
