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!

                  That is called being a poor sport, to demean those you can't compete with.
                  Sour grapes also apply.

                  If and when you ever are competing at the top of barrel racing and winning as consistently as those ladies do, then you come tell us how badly they ride.

                  I expect if that were ever to happen, you may be a bit ashamed to have been such a bad arm chair quarterback about your betters, that you don't even seem to know.

                      So many posts to say nothing... Go out in a pasture and yell, your "venting" is pointless.
                      The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.

                        If you had minded your own business, you would not need to vent.

                        There's a lesson in there for you.

                              You are not! Please go away.

                              I can't believe I am advocating this... using the ignore feature.

                                If this is for real stop, just stop. Please stop. You aren't going to find the validation you are looking for on here. Nobody on here is going to tell you that you were right in bawling out a 12 year old child because you didn't like the way she was riding.

                                Reading between the lines it sounds like "your" barn is really mommy and/or daddy's barn, and this child's parents board a horse there. Butt out. Leave the kid alone. Let her ride her horse how she wants, if she's doing it "wrong" keep your nose out of it and let the adults deal with it. Stop "helping" (bullying) the kid or you'll just end up causing problems between your parents and hers. Stop whining about it here because you're just going to end up getting piled on even worse.

                                If you want to contribute to the COTH boards you'd be better off contributing what knowledge you have to people who are looking for help. If you want to vent then write clear posts, leave out the name-calling and other immature language. Nobody is going to give you any positive feedback on here when you present yourself in the manner you have thus far.

                                Unless of course you are trolling to get a rise out of people and if that's the case I'd say you've hit your mark. Carry on.

                                  If I recall correctly, she had a different name on her first post...2ndyr something or other. Why the name change? Probably didn't realize that a name change would change the name on ALL of her posts.

                                  And NO, you could not be competitive with professionals. Probably not ever with your attitude!
                                  Ride like you mean it.

                                    Translation-"Mommy and Daddy won't pay for me to do that".

                                    Hint- Thats not an expensive hobby for those you are watching on the TV, it's a profession and they do it for a living. People actually come up to them and PAY them for their opinions, they don't run up and spout off how good they are then whine a 12 year old does not think they walk on water.
                                    When opportunity knocks it's wearing overalls and looks like work.

                                    The horse world. Two people. Three opinions.

                                          No matter how good the horse, you still have to be able to ride it and win.
                                          How do you get there?
                                          You ride many, many horses of all kinds for many years and get better and better and some day, when you can do great with regular horses you train and ride that well, then you will know how to find and train and manage and win and keep winning with those top horses, against those top competitors, that got there by beating everyone else.

                                          If you really knew your stuff, you would have realized that even the best of them have bad runs, bad days and too bad when that happens at the biggest, richest competition of all, but it does.
                                          I any discipline, no matter what you do with your horses, training or competing, your bad days is what teaches you where you need to work a bit more.
                                          Those bad days, when you are at the top, don't mean you are terrible and any one newbie should point at how bad you are because of them, as you seem to be doing there.

                                          My belief is that working with horses, unless someone is or learns in a hurry to be humble, they won't get far, won't really learn, will keep hitting their head on the wall of their stubbornness.
                                          Being humble is necessary to become good with horses, because horses have a way to humble us every day, we have to get used to it.
