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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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.

  • Prize money in show jumping

    So I noticed the top horses in the first round of show jumping received prize money. Do all of the rounds offer money for the top horses? And is money offered in all the disciplines (and I just didn't realize it?) or is it specifically show jumping-only?

    The reason I ask is, given the huge cost required to put on a WEG being a factor in who can actually host these games, it seems to me that prize money would be one thing that they could cut to help relieve expenses. It may be considered a drop in the bucket... but to me $100k for one round is nothing to sneeze at. It also doesn't make a great amount of sense to me why there would be such a huge financial incentive to the show jumpers (probably the richest sport in the games). I, personally, would rather have a large amount of prize money go to the para-dressage equestrians. But I thought most people wanted to compete at their world championship for love of sport and the pride in representing their country. Is that not the case for the show jumpers?

    There was prize money in the Reining. The winner of the Indiv Reining won about $11,000 USD.

      The jumper circuit in general has big money at the top, all the Grand Prix and Nations Cup and etc. Reining and cutting too. Dressage doesn't, AFAIK.

      Who funds? I think it's sponsored so it's why you get corporate names on venues and classes.

      Down to our regional level, there can be a $500 juniors miniprix at 3 foot sponsored by some local construction contractor with a grand daughter who loves horses .

      There's certainly no money for the equivalent dressage!

        It's probably based on what's customary for the sport. Reining and show jumping typically have larger prize money. Yes, showjumping usually gives prize money out for each round, not just the overall winner.

        I found of list for the prize money to be awarded:

          The sums for the para dressage are embarrassingly low.... For most of these athletes (aside from the show jumpers!), the prize money is just going to be a payment towards their expenses to get to the competition.

            I think that, if there was not SUBSTANTIAL prize money, most of the show jumpers would not be interested in participating.

            Also, there are FEI rules on the amount of prize money that MUST be offered.

                  New Zealand Horse of the Year pays no para prize money, yet we have to be registered and pay the same ground fees etc.

                    Man especially for the drivers who have way way more shipping and maintenance costs associated, the differences in prize money are le suck.

                    and like 40$ for a top 12 in paradressage? 1300$ for a world championship?! Wtf.
                    Let me apologize in advance.

                      I don't begrudge the show jumpers their money except in the context of $40 checks for the paradressage. One wonders why even bother writing checks of that size.

                        How many owners would want to send their horses to jump that many rounds, if there was no return on investment other than medals? My guess is not many. The prestige is important, I'm sure, but they have a lot of costs and without prize money it might be hard for them to justify it.

                        Too bad more of that money can't be spread across the disciplines -- think how much attention the paradressage got this year, yet those riders are getting $40 checks?? Sad.

                          All travel feed etc expenses were paid by either the Organizing committee or the National Federations. (Otherwise nobody would turn up)

                            But what often happens equibrit is the riders/sponsors/owners pay the transport costs and then are reimbursed by their national federation.

                            but more than a few national federations are very slow to pay, if they ever do. Like imagine fighting with your federation for years to get that 12000 shipping back.

                            Certain level riders for certain federations are also supposed to receive a regular stipend. That also often is slow to arrive or simply doesn't. And I'm talking to Olympians.

                            riders are much, much more reliant on the deep pockets of whomever for these costs because federations too often don't come through. One of the reasons it's so impossible to make it without those deep pockets.
                            Let me apologize in advance.

                              If you read the Equestrian Freight Manual it reads like Expenses are charged, by Peden, to the accounts of the Organizing Committee and the National Federations, whom I presume signed the contract.

                                Not all the Federations pay. It might go through their accounts in some fashion but it's absolutely the case that in some nations it's up to the rider/owner to get the horse there, potentially by raising the money FOR the federation. That is on top, of course, of the expense needed to qualify in the first place, or to arrive ahead of time for acclimation etc.
