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!

  • USDF Score Check--Am I missing something?

    I am a participating member of USDF, and my horse is lifetime registered.

    Do I really have to pay $20 just to check our own scores and verify that they were recorded correctly? Seriously?

    I can understand having to pay to check scores on, let's say, a horse I'm considering buying. But I just want to verify that MY scores on MY horse are correct.

    Am I reading this wrong or missing something?

    If you are a current member, you must log in first to get the free current year's score check.

    Otherwise, it defaults to the pay version.

      Oh, thanks yaya! I was logged in, but you still helped me realize the problem. I didn't notice the separate categories for current year and lifetime, so I was clicking on lifetime.

      Got it now! Man, if I could just read for comprehension . . . .

          Clwp, I wanted to make sure my scores were properly recorded with USDF for regionals. Centerline is great, but I needed the USDF info.

            Isn't it just plain ridiculous that we have to pay money for the Lifetime scores? Really what a rip off. If all the results were centralized and horses had one number for life in all disciplines - the computer program would be very simple and the members would have access to complete information. It's not something that members should have purchase.

            I also feel all horses with Lifetime #'s should AUTOMATICALLY be nominated for the All Breed Awards every year. As a breeder I spend a bloody fortune on lifetime #'s for the horses I breed and then have to prod and remind owners of the ones I've sold to nominate them. It's a simple computer program to just have all horses with Lifetime #'s dropped into the All Breed Award every year.

              How can you automatically nominate a horse for a program that requires breed registry papers if a large number of the horses who get Lifetime Registrations aren't of a registered breed or of a breed that is part of the All-Breeds program?

              Oreo has no papers, so I couldn't expect him to be nominated to a program that requires registration. Or horses who may have papers from more than one registry? (or heck a Friesian... I think there are 8 Friesian registries with the All-Breeds program last time I looked)

              As the breeder when you register your horses with their lifetime numbers you could send in their breed papers and the nomination form and then you wouldn't have to hound their new owners? Since it is a one time thing that would take care of the problem. (I know it isn't called nominating but the correct word isn't coming to me).

              ok... time to head to work!

              Bye bye!

                Horses with lifetime recordings are lifetime nominated - I don't go in and nominate mine every year, and we still get awards. If the horse changes owners, then yes, the new owner has to update everything, but otherwise, once the owner makes a "breed election", then that is where the horse stays.

                The only exceptions I can think of - some REGISTRIES (not the USDF) require the owner/rider be an active, paid member of the registry, and some REGISTRIES (not the USDF) require an additional fee. That is not a USDF requirement, it is a registy requirement.

                OP, glad you figured out the score check is free. One warning I give people - after they've finalized results for the year, USDF wipes out current year results, so if you want to save those results, you need to print it out and keep a hard copy (or pay $20 later on).

                  Just as info... Unless you've corrected something after the fact with USDF, if its incorrect on CenterlineScores.com, it's incorrect on USDF. After over 100 instances where folks have contacted me saying that CenterlineScores has incorrect information, it can always be traced back to the same incorrect information on USDF.org.

                  So, we can be a quick sanity check sometimes. Also, if you've got a copy of the test, we'll fix incorrect scores older than a year. USDF will not.

                        I'm curious why the "hate" part? I really like the site a lot despite seeing that I really did get a 47.8 once.

                          I too love the site. It is so much easier than USDF, and I can see so much more without paying for it. Very helpful when horse shopping!

                              I can't speak of WasThatC, but my one and only hate with the site is that I have to see the scores of some tests I would like to forget

                                You really had to publish that lowest score?
                                Maybe you could have a new rule for my USDF #...only post scores from good rides and generous judges. Heehee.
