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!

  • In love with a dentist.

    This guy is just an awesome horseperson, the very epitome of someone who events from the heart, IMO:

    “I always have the impression that his last round is his best round, and it was again his best today,” he said. “Every time he does it. I don’t know how, but he does—thank you Marius.”
    His insight on the course was intriguing to read, too, given the wobbliness I think we all saw in some riders at the finish:

    "It was tougher than I expected, and the last third was really tiring. It was really knackering.”
    Now there's a man I'd love to find myself sitting next to on a plane. I am now firmly rooting for him and the sweet, wonderful Marius.

    He's a dentist? Wow. Didn't know that.

    I LOVED his ride through cross country (didn't see his dressage) - it was soooo beautiful!! He totally deserves to be sitting atop the field for sure He sounds like a wonderful horse person or heck, even regular ol' person for that matter

      I love that an amateur from Germany is kicking butt. That horse is lovely!

        I agree

        I loved him in dressage, was impressed in XC (steady, steady pace and clean) and I am sure rooting for him in SJ.

        Our commentators stated that he practises dentistry all day and rides every day at 7 pm! Marius is gorgeous! and seems so in tune with his rider. I know the comments during our Canadian broadcast were really funny regarding this horse's way of thinking. A great pair!

          and on an entirely superficial note...he is a very nice man and incredibly easy on the eyes.

            hahaha... snoops. You crack me up.

            I was totally cheering when they said he is a full time dentist and rides his horse (singular) after work at night! There's hope for my interior designer self yet!!!

              Romeike was good in Athens too. As were all the Germans. Remember?

              Did all the Germans wear long-sleeved shirts on xc? Did my mind blur. So riders to keep up with and so fast.

              I didn't notice arms until Lucinda Fredericks' were so bare and toned and bare.

                Marius was absolutely one of my favorite horses out there yesterday, and I'm so glad to hear that his rider is a great person as well. I'll be rooting for them in the medal standings, for sure!

                  He made it look like a Regular Working Hunter course. So smooth and effortless to the eye!

                    I loved his ride! I remembered thinking "they just get it". Even better that he has a different day job.

                      Oh, that must have been fun. What sort of things did they put in his mouth, so to speak?

                      I didn't notice arms until Lucinda Fredericks' were so bare and toned and bare.
                      Except for the pink gloves. Anyone know the story behind her love of pink?

                      IMO, Gandalf and Marius would make Hunter Derby folks cry--not just because of their fancy jumps (especially Marius), but because of the way they loped around with such seeming ease and rhythm.

                        She wore this colour back when she was Lucinda Murray.

                        A little background on Lucinda. She is a good buisness woman, has made many sacrifices by selling some very good horses that would have put her in team contention a long time ago. She focused on getting her husband on some good horses, buying their yard in the UK and raising a family. She was also the trainer of another national team for which I cannot remember. She is a tough cookie and really deserves to be right where she is. Brit was a difficult horse in the beginning and Lucinda has worked miracles to get this horse to the top of the sport.

                              It was really a lovely, lovely go, both for horse and rider. I'm really looking forward to seeing how he does the SJ round -- he looked so careful for an event horse!

                                He's an ammie?? Wow, have to cheer for him even more now! I've been sitting here LOVING the broadcasts (after the troubles I had with the player, etc the first day), but I always think "it's too bad we don't have more availability to this for amateurs." What a fantastic thing to hear!

                                Yup, I love these two horses, partially because of their easy way of going and elegant style. I'll even admit that I've been disappointed in the Hunter Derby horses (not all, but most) because they're still demonstrating the show hunter style, not the original hunter thing it was hoped to bring back a bit.

                                    It's kind of a German tradition, or at least accepted that an amateur can still be a top class rider and not simply dismissed. Remember Reiner Klimke was an amateur -- he was a practicing lawyer his entire riding career.

                                      I remember at one point Marius seemed to be looking at something, then refocused and "said". "yeah, excuse me boss, I got a bit distracted"... or "oh, lead change... no problem!" I think I still have it on tape.

                                      I really enjoyed watching the pair and wish them well in SJ. Apart from Rolex in '07, I have never really watched Eventing, so this is really new to me and I am grateful for the great coverage we have. I am learning a lot... I even watched ALL of the dressage (and usually after two horses, I am bored!)
