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!

    Who is going to the NEDA Fall Festival in September?

  • #2
    I wish I could say yes -- my filly has been GAIG/ USDFBC Filly Champion at the breed show there for the past two years, so it's been a great show for us. But we've moved to Region 1 and will do our finals at Devon this year. I do love the Fall Festival, though! If anyone is on the fence or thinking of going for the first time, it's well worth going. A great show and great fun.

    There's a picture of her at the Festival on the first page of my site:

        Me! Miss Eventer here is taking my Appaloosa in the 1st level championships!

        We won't, uh, stand out or anything.

          Lisa, that's a cute horse!

          I keep thinking, maybe next year. At Training Level. The mare is finally sound enough to take to schooling shows and we may just tackle the recognized ones next year.

              I'm going with 3 Friesians.


              • #8
                Sadly, after riding in this show for the past 5 years, this year I'll be going as a spectator.

                (If you'll indulge my bragging, last year, at 3rd level, I won 3 out of 4 classes including the GAIG AA regional. Of course I was DEAD LAST in the class I did not win - which was the 2nd half of the 3rd level stakes)

                  We are going with a weanling filly for the breed show and training level championship with my 5 year old.

                      I will be there for 4th level.

                        I'll be there, announcing. Please come by and say "hello"!


                        • #13
                          Flight Check!!! I didn't know you did announcing for dressage shows! Awesome!


                          • #14
                            Is there a list of accepted, or at least received, entries anywhere? I sent mine in via email, and have asked twice for confirmation that my information was received, with no response. I understand the organizers must be very busy, but it does make me nervous to think my entry may be sitting in limbo somewhere. Eventing competitions can post entry status online...do dressage shows? I've checked NEDA's website and don't find anything.


                            • #15
                              Lisa post the question on the NEDA bulletin board!!

                                I wouldn't expect anything until after the closing date, since they have to accept all championship competitors who enter before the closing date.

                                  But paranoid me doesn't want to wait to see list after closing date, in case they did not receive for some reason. I'd like to know if there is a problem while there is still time to revise/send new entry before closing date.

                                  When I've entered the American Eventing Championships in the past, I've entered online & seen my entry status appear within 24 hours, online.

                                    I received an email confirmation about my entry, but I am also entered in the championships. Like someone mentioned, you might not here anything until they have accepted the championship entries. Not sure who you sent the email entry to (I would assume the secretary), but if you go to centerlineevents.com, you would be able to contact Debra, who is the secretary for NEDA.

                                        please watch for Chuck!

                                        Would everyone please watch for my old horse "Ever lucky" tall grey Dutch WB I have no idea what level he is; I regret so much having to sell him; I had to sell one horse; and wanted to sell my eventer, A SMALL l plain bay Tb mare; but, of course everyone wanted the the tall grey Dutch gelding; I had been hunting him, which, he absolutely loved! More than anything we had done; that was his place; I so regret not marketing him to foxhunters but, did not at that time; have the necessary "social" contacts among the various hunt clubs I lost the contact info for the BNT whose barn he was in; I wanted to tell her that he foxhunted like a dream , most importantly, he loved it! People see him and think they will make a show horse out of him; but, he has a spook that won't come out; I really don't want another show person trying to train, with whip and spurs it out of him; he is a very good horse in the right discipline. He could have been an Olympic level eventer without that spook; and we tried and tried to gt it out but, it would not leave; I could not bear Jim W. using the bull whip on him; he was too nice a horse for other sports dressage, foxhunting; it was just time to say "not my cup of tea" to his eventing; but, the person I sold him to was too timid over fences to try foxhunting.he probably would have jumped her out of the
                                        breeder of Mercury!

                                        remember to enjoy the moment, and take a moment to enjoy and give God the glory for these wonderful horses in our lives.BECAUSE: LIFE is What Happens While Making Other Plans
