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!

  • Live webcast for WEG?

    I posted a thread about this in Dressage, but would love any information anyone has about a live feed for the WEG. It sure would be nice if USEFlive would provide coverage like they did with the selection trials.

    Anyone have any current info?

      Note the fine print on the FEItv.org website

      Under the banner for WEG 2010

      "LIVE Broadcast schedule and LIVE territory restrictions to be confirmed"

      Here is more information

        I think I just read something about it being on NBC. Maybe in PH? Here we go--page 76 of the Sept issue. In addition to the coverage on NBC sports (Sept 26 at noon, Oct 3 at 1 pm, and Oct 10 at 4 pm, all Eastern), mobile and live streaming will be available on www.nbcsports.com. Wonder if it will be as nice as the Hong Kong live streaming, which I loved.

          Opportunities to see WEG on TV plentiful: Providers include NBC Sports, Universal Sports

          LEXINGTON HERALD-LEADER, KY. | SCOTT SLOAN | Wed, Aug 18, 9:09 AM

          Aug. 18--If you're content to skip the Kentucky Horse Park this fall in favor of watching the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games from your couch or Barcalounger, you're in luck. The Games' organizers have secured a television home for the event's many competitions on NBC Sports and cable network Universal Sports.
          Those outlets, along with major coverage planned by Lexington stations, means you'll get your equine fix wherever you might be during the Games.
          "It's the largest investment of time that equine sports has ever gotten in the U.S.," said Terry Johnson, vice president of sales and marketing for the Games' organizers.
          The centerpiece of the Games' television coverage will be 61/2 hours on NBC Sports spread over the three Sundays during the competitions. The coverage will include a live presentation of events, including the closing ceremonies.
          The organizers have paid NBC Sports for the time, Johnson said, declining to state how much it cost. The Games get all of the network's commercial time to sell to advertisers, though affiliates still retain some time, and have included it in sponsorship packages.
          The only presence the Games, which have always been held in Europe until this year, have had on U.S. network television until now was a 90-minute special about the 2006 Games in Aachen, Germany, that the organizers paid to have on NBC Sports after the events concluded.
          Johnson said the network was willing to take a chance on airing dramatically more coverage of the Games because it has seen good ratings for its highlights from the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event.
          In fact, the organizers have hired Carr-Hughes Productions, which films Rolex, for the Games, because NBC does not do the production itself.
          Johnson said the time on NBC has been crucial to securing sponsorships.
          "When I'm able to say we're going to have 61/2 hours of coverage on NBC Sports, everybody understands what that means," he said.
          The Games also will have a cable home on the Olympic sports channel Universal Sports, which will air 30 hours. The channel is not widely available in Central Kentucky, but Johnson said organizers are working with area cable-TV providers to arrange for temporary carriage.
          Of the 30 hours, 15 will be live and 15 delayed, Johnson said, and the organizers are splitting the commercial time with the cable network.
          As in years past, the greatest amount of coverage, though, will be available internationally. Johnson said the details on how many European, Middle Eastern and other foreign networks will be airing the Games remains to be determined, but he noted that there were about 320 hours of coverage in 2006.
          The Games' organizers don't see any money or commercial time from that coverage, though, as that is all handled by the FEI, Johnson said. Advertising signage at the Horse Park, however, will be prominently visible during the coverage.
          Johnson said the goal is to also have the entire Games available for viewing online, but that plan is still being worked out.
          Locally, the Games are also expected to have a prominent home on several affiliates across the state. The organizers are working on creating a statewide network, but the deal has not been finalized.
          "Most of us working on the event here are Kentuckians, and we want this event to be seen around the state and region not just as a Lexington event but also a Kentucky event," Johnson said. "There is a piece or two of the event that we would like to deliver live to the state, and we're working on the ways to do that."
          Lexington's television stations are also planning major coverage of the Games.
          NBC affiliate WLEX (Channel 18), which has a partnership with the organizers, plans to do its newscasts live from the Horse Park on the Games' opening day and the day before, said News Director Bruce Carter.
          "We're going to be covering a lot of stuff out there, but the most important thing we'll be covering is everyone from our area out there to see it all," he said. "That's the excitement of it."
          While local stations can air interviews with attendees, they are restricted from airing the competitions. The stations can air only less than a minute of competition highlights per show and can get that footage only from the Games' production team.
          But as the other stations have noted, they've always planned for their coverage to be about much more than the competitions.
          CBS affiliate WKYT (Channel 27) is sponsoring the Spotlight Lexington Festival downtown, just as ABC affiliate WTVQ (Channel 36) is sponsoring the International Equestrian Festival at Lexington Center.
          "While the actual events are important and we'll have coverage of that, in so many people's minds, WEG is going to be much more than just the Games themselves," said WKYT News Director Robert Thomas. "There are going to be so many people at the Horse Park and at Spotlight Lexington downtown that the actual events will be part of the story, not the whole story."

            Thanks for the info....for those of us dressage junkies, I hope to see more than just a couple highlights. It seems that the media prefers to show more "exciting" events such as jumping or reining. I love those too, but I certainly hope that all events are covered - at least on line.

              WEG Coverage On The Internet In US

              Hi Everyone,

              I asked a question on Universal Sports Facebook page.

              They replied today telling me that they will be having live and on demand coverage on universalsports.com. They had the Rolex coverage during late April this year.

              They said they were working on maximizing the schedule. They will also have 30 hours of coverage on Universal Sports Network(on cable and satellite) both live and tape delay.

              I sent a reply asking if they had any idea on prices. When I have more information I'll pass it on.

                Here is the International Feed Info.

                That will at least give you an idea of the packages Carr-Hughes is putting together.
