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!

        Just looking at the order of go...Minna Telde is listed, but she's scratched.

        That leaves an open slot at 7:35 (local time).

        There was a question posted on another thread asking if Jan had scored high enough in order to move into the fresstyle. I don't think an answer had been posted (yet).

          Jan can't do the freestyle because his Grand Prix score wasn't a qualifying one. It's really too bad.

            Are you sure that rule applies for the World Cup? thanks The reason I ask is when Robert's partner asked him if Jan could come back and still do well in the freestyle Robert said it would be almost impossible he never said Jan would not be able to ride.

              It would be impossible to finish in the top 3-4, is what he was referring to i think.

                He didn't say that and why not. What if he went in and had the best ride of his life. Since the slate is clean there would be no reason why he couldn't win the thing.

                  Being hopeful is different sometimes from being realistic. One. The horse is VERY green. She's not likely to beat more seasoned horses who have competed many more times than her and been schooled for longer. Two. The horse was flippin' freaked out, he barely got her around the ring. She isn't going to entirely get over that in one day. Three. I don't actually believe she has heretofore scored high enough to put her in the top few in the freestyle tonight. Sure, 'sometimes the one that stays in the ring wins'.

                    I understand that I was just pointing out that it could be done. I hope someone can point out the rules on the score thing I've been told two different things.

                      for you, ridgeback

                      Linda Zang told me this winter that a rider now had to have a 58% in the GP to proceed to the freestyle in a CDI (formerly 55%)

                      I would guess she probably knows what's she talking about but I've never actually looked to rule up for myself.

                        It's Article 422 in the FEI rules for dressage:
                        12. Qualification score for all Freestyle tests and Grand Prix Special
                        A horse must earn a minimum score of 58% in the qualifying class, in order to be eligible to start in a Freestyle or Grand Prix Special competition.

                            The regular rules for dressage events apply to the WC Final except where specifically overridden by the WC rules. The WC rules do not include a distinct provision on qualifying score for the FTM, so art. 422.12 applies.

                                Yes, that rule is in effect and Robert Dover may not have known it off the top of his head because I don't remember it ever being invoked before.

                                It probably came in when the World Cup decided to use all riders in the final instead of only the top twelve.

                                  plus, when Robert Dover made that comment, Jan was still riding his test and the final score was not yet known

                                    It was near the end if not the end I'm sure Robert knew he was going to get a score lower then 58 with that amount of spook. Who can keep track of all the rules

                                      He probably didn't want to comment on something like that - even if he was right, it might be considered a little politically incorrect.

                                      And he's not on the starting order, so he ain't riding.
