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!

        Rubinio qualified in 2008 and 2009 to Represent the USA in Verden !

        In 2008 and in 2009 we DID have riders who Qualified to Represent the USA in Verden at The Young Horse World Championships.. !

        Rubinio qualified for The Fei 5 yr old test in 2008. I rode him myself and we had qualifeid with a 8.9. We rode in Verden had a Great time and finished 5th in the small Final with a 8.02. If I remember correctly Willi Arts also qualified a 6 yr old and there was another us representitve on a 5 yr old.

        Last year in 2009 Rubinio and myself qualified again to represent the USA with a 8.2 for the FEI 6 yr old in Verden. Unfortunetly 1 day before competition my Rubinio injured himself in his stall and couldn't compete. Articles on our qualifacation can be found on Eurodressage..

        I wish Emily and her stallion much luck in Verden . It is indeed a chance of a lifetime...

          Jennifer, how is Rubinio doing now? Is he still in Germany or with you in CA? Hopefully he has fully recovered from his injury last year!

            I believe Willy's horse was the mare Valeska.

              Sorry for any misinfo in the website set up for Emily. I will forward your post to the folks that put the website together and ask them to correct any info. no slight was intended!!!

              now back to helping Emily make her dream come true. For a 22 y/o of modest means with a young horse bred on the plains of Kansas, this is an incredible accomplishment. Emily is a in her senior year at Kansas Univeristy majoring in Biology with straight A's and is just an exceptional young lady. This is such a wonderful story that we just want to see play out to Germany.

              Again, sincere apologies on any misinfo presented regarding previous qualifiers!!!!



              • Original Poster

                The info has been corrected. Sorry for the mistake. I just put up what I was given. As Maggie said no slight was intended. Hope you and your horse are doing well.

                  Just an idea...
                  as mentioned on the Sporthorse Breeding forum about Emily Wagner and WakeUp , USEF provides no funds for the US representative to go to Verden
                  (perhaps because it's the USEF/Markel Young Horse competition, has their own championship in Illinois).

                  So with the all the mandatory fees for "grants" and "scholarships"
                  that are charged on our entry forms for money to hand out to people of the USDF/GMO's choosing (and who most of us do not know and are completely disconnected from) that some kind of funding ought to be set up to assist the riders of these top young horses so they can compete in Verden and represent the USA. That would have much more value to me as a donor.

                  Not more mandatory fees on entry forms (!) , but some type of organized financial assistance, through voluntary donations and sponsorships.
                  USEF or USDF could oversee it.

                  Such a fund would also add more incentive to particpate in the USEF/Markel program, not to mention support the US breeding program.

                    The Wagners are the most hardworking, honest, authentic people around. Jana does more in one day than what three horse women do in a full week. Kudo's to Emily & Jana.

                      Boy, you are not kidding!! She gives the term "multi-tasking" a whole new meaning.
                      Her focus is incredible. I have known her for over ten years as a student and have bred to her stallions. I am so lucky to have someone like her within decent driving distance for lessons!

                        Congrats to Emily and Wakey!! I am so excited for her and cannot be more proud to be a student of Emily's. She has done wonders for my horse and me. Can't wait for this dream to happen for her! There is not a more hard working person I know. She deserves this so much! The Wagners are an awesome family who work harder than anyone.

                        CONGRATS EMILY!!

                          we need everyone to spread the word about how they can help!!


                          Emily and WakeUp had an incredible show in St Louis this past weekend....from Emily's blog http://emilywagnerdressage.wordpress.com/
                          So…in case anyone was wondering… WakeUp ROCKS MY WORLD!!!!!! He was fantastic today and clocked out a super steady test to win the 5 year old test with an AMAZING 89.8%!!!!! The judges were super complementary of his rideability and attitude giving a 9 on submission and 9.5 on general impression!!!! It was so much fun!!!!

                          They are peaking at just the right time and we need to get them to Germany so that they can show that someone from modest means with a midwest breed horse can go out and rock the dressage world!!! As others have said, the Wagners are role models for what hard work and determination can do.

                            Stallion Wagnis

                            Is there a link anywhere to the sire of Wakeup, the stallion Wagnis? I can't find a photo or information on him anywhere and am really interested to find out more about him!



                            • #15
                              We had to remove/edit some posts to comply with the site's policies on fundraising activities (for 501c3 charities only).

                                I found this:

                                I wish you could see Mushu, her Sport Pony stallion out of a mustang mare she owns and I have forgotten who is sire is. He has brains, the body and is just plain the "real deal". Once or twice he came to the clinic where I worked to be collected.

                                  I thought the sire was/is Macht.

                                    Mushu is by the Trakehner Macht (deceased) out of Moreia, a BLM Mustang mare.
                                    There are about 7 or 8 of these Mustant/Trakehenr crosses who have been successful AA horses. Many of the mares that Jana kept were bred to Wagnis or her other stallion and produced many top foals.

                                      Yes I remember Macht, Pralaat and Polarmond well...............Now I'm really dating my time back in KC, MO. In fact the last time I saw Emily she wasn't that far out of diapers. Jana proved to me it was OK to take kids to the horse shows and actually show (She was showing Macht at the time). I remember one show at Longview where she had a tent set up and her kids there. They were all very well behaved and pitching in. Those that could walk that is. I was stabled not far from her and had my daughter there, carrying her around in my back pack in between my classes/tests. It was amazing because the dressage gods never struck us down with lightening as one would have thought might happen since kids were/are so welcome at dressage shows

                                      FWIW I hope the pair gets to go to Europe and does well.

                                        Yup, Jana is absolutely AMAZING! I have known her for about 15 years. They have worked hard and have earned everything they have accomplished.
