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!

  • German Olympic Dressage Team Selected at 2008 CDIO Aachen

    Isabell Werth - Satchmo
    Nadine Capellmann - Elvis VA
    Heike Kemmer - Bonaparte
    Reserve: Monica Theodorescu - Whisper

    Two more reserve riders will be going, Matthias Alexander Rath with Sterntaler and Helen Langehanenberg with Responsible.

    They will go into quarantaine on July 18.. When do the U.S. dressage horses fly over for quarantaine and how long do they have to be in quarantaine in Germany and then Hong Kong?

    Is this typcial for countries to take several back up horses?

    OK. Where's the cross-out button! Went back and checked my source & the California west to HK was one of the alternative suggestions, but rejected by the USEF. ... Nevermind!

      According to Dressage Daily they are going through Germany and that was always the plan.. Does anyone know how long they have to be quarantined in Germany and then how long in Hong Kong.. Do they get to ride during that time?

        7 days in Germany and 10 days in Hong Kong, as I remember.

        from H&H 2006

        Speaking at a press conference, the Secretary for Health, Welfare and Food, Dr York Chow said: "Hong Kong has an overall advantage in organising the events given its extensive experience in horse racing, its status in equine health and its world renowned regulatory framework for equine diseases, which is well understood by the international community."

        According to Dr Chow, more than 200 horses will be imported for the Olympic events, with up to 80 horses taking part in the Paralympic competitions. A trial will be held next year, where 10 horses will be imported to test-run the quarantine and inspection arrangements.

        Dr Chow explained that Hong Kong's animal health authority (AFCD) will be responsible for the inspection and quarantine of horses participating in the events. The AFCD has been consulting with the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), the FEI, the Beijing Organising Committee for the Games (BOCOG) and the Hong Kong Jockey Club to device the import procedures.

        "According to the arrangements, horses for the events will be imported from various countries via quarantine stables located around several designated transportation hubs," said AFCD director Stella Kung. "Imported horses will be required to undergo a period of seven days pre-export quarantine in overseas quarantine stables and 10 days of post-arrival isolation in Hong Kong". Horses will be monitored in isolation stables at Sha Tin and Beas River upon arrival in Hong Kong.

                    it's interesting that someone who went out of her way to insult people on the board claiming to be above explaining things to 'novices' thought that training could just completely stop for a month for a team just prior to the Olympics.

                        maybe we will do better than i thought.

                        "do you actually think they will stop training on July 18th?"

                        congratulations, you have given egon something to pounce on. you get an award.

                        how do you give egon something to pounce on?

                        you log in, and you post .... anything....LOL.

                        ok, egon....? egon.... i think most people realize that when you start shipping horses around and traveling them to a place far away like hong kong, their training is affected. no it doesn't entirely stop, some people may not know that, but as of the start of quarantine, there are going to be some interruptions. most quarantine facilities are gorgeous. the ones my friends have used are far better facilities than most training stables, even than the best ones.

                        the good news is that we can assume (MOST of us can assume, LOL) that these riders know what they need to work on to improve their scores at the olympics, know how to peak horses condition wise for a specific show, and know how to minimize the effects of quarantine and travel.

                        i think what some people don't know is that most of these horses have flown alot. it is just not the traumatic journey some imagine. it's far nicer than traveling by road.

                        my friend just got a horse from europe and it looked like it had walked from its stall in europe to hers. it was not tired, it was not stress, and it was not run down. further, the quarantine facility was something like a spa, and as she said, 'Good lord, the poor horse must think he now lives at Ma and Pa Kettle's farm!' LOL.

                                        I'll guess Dutch for team gold and Isabel for individual gold.
