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!

  • 2009 Bundeschampionate Videos & Reports

    Hi All,
    I'm here at the Bundeschampionate and I'm starting to get things up on the Oldenburg website. I have some photos already there, and I'll be getting my video clips up soon.

    I also am linking each horse to their class video on Clip My Horse so that you don't have to surf through the German. Go to: www.oldenburghorse.com

    On Clip My Horse, if you go to the class, and let the video get past the advertisement you can then place your cursor over the video frame. That will bring up the controls and if you click on the fast forward arrows that will allow you to skip through the rides to get to the one you want to see. Keep moving your cursor to the right as you do this.

    Fuerst Romacier was spectacular yesterday, but so was Blickpunkt and Rosandro. It should be a heck of a finals!

    Statesman had an uncharacteristic spook or two yesterday which is why we think his scores were a little lower than they could be in the final. The weather was awful, and the Reitpferde arena is always tough in that kind of wind.

    Sonnenreiter was also really good, and Batida de Coco stole the show in the pony stallion class.

    The jumpers are doing well too. Keep checking back!

        Well, it's a great day so far for Weser-Ems Pony Stallions, but unfortunately, Statesman decided he hates umbrellas.

        It was so unlucky because the sun had started to come out, and he came in looking pretty relaxed. However, once they started the test a small shower came down and everyone at once popped the umbrellas and he just couldn't get past it.

        It was so windy that one of the large table umbrellas flew over the main tent from the jumping arena. Just nuts. I have to give Lissaro credit there, he stayed incredibly calm throughout it all.

        Sonnenreiter looked great in his trot and canter work, but his walk and also a bit of tension from all the umbrellas, etc. brought his overall score down.

        Sarkozy was the winner of the day getting 9's for trot, canter, and walk. It's close so it should be interesting this afternoon.

        In the Mares and Geldings, Weihegold is in close third and will be in the finals, but I don't think she will be able to get near Preziosa who has an overall total of 55.0 points. Just amazing.

        In the Pony Stallion division, Weser-Ems is reigning supreme! Batida de Coco WE is in first and Casino Royal WE is in second.

        The six year old finals is about to start. Check back with www.oldenburghorse.com for pictures/videos. They'll be posted by the end of the day.

            did anyone else think the 6 yo grey that won is off behind? perhaps its just his way of going? not through his back?

            oh my, am I turning into one of those dressage purist types?????



            • Original Poster

              It's Sunday morning. Yesterday was great for the Weser-Ems Pony stallion, Batida de Coco and Casino Royale. You can see the pictures, videos and report at www.oldenburghorse.com.

              Kira Wulferding also had a great day getting two medals in both the 4 year old Mares and Geldings and the 6 year old finals!

              Sarkozy stands in 3rd after the dressage and jumper phases of the 6 year old Eventers and the Weser-Ems gelding, Cosmos, stands also in third in the 5 & 6year old Eventing Ponies.

              This morning the Weser-Ems three year old stallion, Cyrill WE blew the judges away getting a perfect 10 for his trot and a 9.5 for his walk!! Should be a great finals this afternoon.

              Gotta run, the 3 year old stallions start soon. It's overcast and only a light breeze today, so hopefully things will be calmer than yesterday.

              Oh, and if you are looking for video links to the classes, make sure you know which day the class took place. I organize our News page by date so for instance, if you are looking for the qualifiers for the 5 year old dressage horses that Fuerst Romancier was in, go to the News page and scroll down to "September 3rd". You'll find the link there.

              All the links are now up from yesterday.
