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!

  • FEI announces future WC venues: No Vegas on schedule

    The way I read this announcement, looks like LV World Cup is not on the schedule for quite some time. 2011 would be the next logical possibility on the every other year schedule from 2009, but show jumping has been allocated to Leipzig. No announcement about dressage yet, but the LV venue is geared to hosting both sj/dressage together. So all of us who are able to go, be prepared to enjoy every moment cuz it doesn't look like it's going to happen again soon!

    2011

    How very sad! I was soothing my distress at not going this year with the thought that 20011 is not that far away.
    I had such a good time in 2007.

      I wouldn't count Vegas out for future WC action. They said the same thing in 2007 - that it would be the last time that both dressage and showjumping would be at that venue together. And looky what happened.

        I wouldn't say it's never going to happen again, but since they've already awarded the next 4 years (through 2013) in showjumping, I'd venture a guess it's not going to happen soon unless they're going to "un-" award one of the venues they just designated!

            That's happened before, too. Just prior to this WC, IIRC.

              I hope you're correct - I remember they announced at the 2005 WC that they'd been awarded the 2007. Then in 2007 there was no announcement at the time and I recall that it took quite a while before an announcement was finally made. I do remember the FEI had made an announcement for 2008, but don't remember them awarding it somewhere else then taking it away for '09. Could have happened though and I wasn't paying attention

                    The fact that the countries are in Europe doesn't matter, they are giving it to different countries. The US got it, what, 4x now since the early 2000s? Or is this the 5th time? I think that would give other countries a valid reason to say "Hey, what about us?" That said, I am very disappointed because I love what Las Vegas Events does with the WC.

                      Yes, I'd say we were very lucky to get both finals here for so many years. I can see it going to every 3 or 4 years LV might get it - in order to share the wealth so to speak. Wasn't one of the jumping finals in Kuala Lumpur or someplace WAAAAYYY FAAAAR AWAY from W.Europe & N.Am??? (MEP decides to go check, back in a flash.) Yup, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 2006.

                        I thought Vegas/USEF withdrew their bid? You can't get what you didn't bid for.

                          Interesting & makes sense - was there any report about this? Why they decided not to bid?

                          It was only announced on April 15, 2008 that it would be held in LV this year. From the Las Vegas Events website:

                          April 15, 2008

                          Learn More About This Event



                          FEI World Cup Finals to Return to Las Vegas in 2009






                          Rolex FEI World Cup™ Jumping Finals and FEI World Cup™ Dressage Finals Set for April 15-19, 2009 at the Thomas & Mack Center

                          LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - April 10, 2008 - Las Vegas Events (LVE) will once again host the FEI World Cup Finals in both show jumping and dressage at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, April 15-19, 2009.

                          This will mark the fifth time that Las Vegas hosts the FEI World Cup Finals and only the third time ever, following two previous times in Las Vegas in 2005 and 2007, that the world��s premier annual championships in the two Olympic equestrian disciplines are held concurrently.

                          In April, 2007, more than 85,000 spectators attended the Rolex FEI World Cup™ Jumping and Dressage Finals. According to the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, the event had a non-gaming economic impact of $23.4 million. Individuals representing 25 countries and all 50 of the United States purchased tickets for the Finals, bringing a true international feel to the weekend's competition.

                          The success of that event, combined with the success of the Finals held in Las Vegas in 2000, 2003 and 2005, precipitated the return of the Finals to Las Vegas in 2009.

                          “Each time we've hosted the FEI World Cup Finals in Las Vegas, they proved to be an incredible success for the destination,” said Pat Christenson, president of Las Vegas Events. “The combination of show jumping and dressage proved to be captivating for American fans, as well as for those from around the globe. We eagerly anticipate the return of the Finals to Las Vegas in 2009, and our goal will be to surpass our previous success.”

                          Las Vegas's groundbreaking presentation of show jumping and dressage together engendered unprecedented interest in the Finals by spectators and also proved a huge hit with the riders. “I don't think our sport has ever been so well received as it was at the FEI World Cup Finals in Las Vegas,” said 2003 FEI World Cup Dressage champion Debbie McDonald of Hailey, Idaho. “I believe that the Finals in Las Vegas provided an incredible boost for our sport.”

                          “The FEI World Cup Finals in Las Vegas have changed the perception of equestrian sport in the United States,” said John Long, CEO of the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF). “LVE has showcased the entertainment potential of our sport by producing incredible events that combine all the excitement and glamour Las Vegas has to offer as the Entertainment Capital of the World with competition from the top riders in the world. The events were spectacular and drew standing room only crowds. The USEF is thrilled to have the dual FEI World Cups back in Las Vegas in 2009.”

                          “Las Vegas has consistently put on incredible World Cup Finals, and it is a real plus for our sport to have the Finals back there,” said 2004 Olympic Team Gold Medalist McLain Ward of Brewster, New York who has competed in three of the four Finals held in Las Vegas. “They do a fantastic job showing the best our sport has to offer. The riders all love it and I find it very exciting that the Finals are going back there.”

                          Started in 1979, the FEI World Cup Jumping Final is an annual international showdown among the world��s best show jumping horses and riders. Approximately 45 riders qualify from 13 leagues around the world. In the 29 finals held through 2007, United States riders have emerged with the most titles, having won the championship seven times. The 2008 FEI World Cup Jumping Final is being held in Gothenburg, Sweden.

                          The 2009 event will mark the eighth FEI World Cup Jumping Final to be held in the United States, following Finals in Baltimore in 1980, Tampa, Fla. in 1989, Del Mar, Calif. in 1992 and the four in Las Vegas in 2000, 2003, 2005 and 2007.

                          First held in 1986, the FEI World Cup Dressage Final has been held in the U.S. three times, in 1995 in Los Angeles and 2005 and 2007 in Las Vegas. The Netherlands has dominated the competition, winning nine titles, followed by Germany with seven. The United States won its first title in 2003 when Debbie McDonald rode Brentina to the championship.

                          Las Vegas Events, Inc. (LVE), producer of 2000, 2003, 2005 and 2007 FEI World Cup Finals, was founded in 1983. LVE has grown with Las Vegas as the city has emerged as one of the world��s top special event and resort destinations. A private, not-for-profit organization, LVE is funded by hotel room tax and serves as the exclusive major special events agency for the city. Since 1991, Las Vegas Events has produced, presented or supported more than 440 events, which have driven more than 3.8 million visitors to the area, resulting in an economic impact of more than $2.3 billion.

                          Those who purchased series seats for the 2007 Finals and would like tickets for the 2009 FEI World Cup Finals will have an exclusive ticket renewal period that will run through May 15. From June 1-15, members of the World Cup Club will have their own exclusive time period when they can purchase priority seating before tickets go on sale to the general public on June 16. Interested fans can sign up for World Cup Club membership at the official website at www.worldcuplasvegas.com.

                          Further information about the Rolex FEI World Cup™ Jumping Finals and FEI World Cup™ Dressage Finals is also available at the official website.
