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!

  • Millbrook or River Glen results?

    The upper levels rode the dressage phases at both these horse trials either today or yesterday. Anyone got results to share? Particularly looking for Lellie Ward at River Glen and Mary Bess Sigman at Millbrook. THANKS!!!!

        I saw that too...I'm guessing it is a typo and he came in at 6:21 (obviously he'd be eliminated if he came in at 62 minutes!). I'm sure it will be fixed shortly.

          happy to see that Mary Bess and wonderful Guinness X finished XC clear...I expect the time penalites were a decision on Bessie's part. Hurray!

          Now for news from River Glen! Live Scores are just so nice - when they aren't available, the waiting is awful!!!

              Oh no ... there's a way more important battle going on at River Glen ...

              THe local dressage and Combined Training Society (CDCTS.org) offered a $75 prize for lowest overall score form a CDCTS member over the weekend. So far, I only have TWO CDCTS members on the radar ... Debbie Connell, SBNR, and ME

              Now Debbie and me are never going to go to the Olympics, but we both made it to Regionals, and if I 'let' her take the Blue, we're both going to AECs too. Debbie and I are both making our way (slowly) through the levels for the first time, and may well both peak at BN. We're Awesome. We have a combined age of about 152.

              And we're in the same division.

              And Debbie Always beats me in dressage, and then Always takes a rail down in stadium.

              Except this time she didn't. Didn't take the rail, that is. Of course, she whupped me in dressage, I ride like a pillock.

              So, the Real Battle, is down there at BN XC, two little old ladies duking it out for the top prize

                  Best of luck, Kate! If you happen to think of it, would you check the score of a Junior Novice rider, Nancy Katheryne Webb? She's from our area and it's her first Novice! I hate not having live scoring!
                  Some nights I stay up cashing in my bad luck; some nights I call it a draw. -- fun.

                        I DID get a chance to look her up today before XC and .... I can't help it ... I'm an old lady ... I've clean forgot what the result was. I remember thinking it was positive though .... like 4th - maybe ?

                        Sorry - I'm a bit hopeless.

                            Yeah, it might have been the most adorable division of the day. That was word on the street, at least.

                              a bit of a brag for Rasta Mon!!!

                              So, Rasta did a BN event at Full Gallop the end of May - did fine even with the big hole in the track in his dressage arena , was a bit looky but clean in his SJ, then took exception to a red trakhaner looking airy log on XC - a star XC except for that...

                              nothing in between...this weekend at River Glen - 4th after dressage with ...wait now - ....a 27.3 YES 4th with a 27.3. He was VERY put off and looky in SJ, not locking onto the jumps so Lellie circled him once and incurred 4 points, and he calmed down, jumped clean. NOW, the brag - little horse has never schooled River Glen (a bit far from Aiken, plus, Lellie rarely schools courses prior to events - she thinks event horses are supposed to be trained to jump when asked - go figure ) - Rasta BOMBED around XC double clear...I think the worst he finished was 5th!!! So excited I have a XC horse!!!

                                  LOL!! Love the Battle of River Glen! But I'm kind of biased since I'm a big fan of both parties! Hope everyone did fabulously!

                                    My New Nemesis (used to be BEF), now Arch Rival, who won the $75 by finishing on her dressage score, which was significantly better than mine, what with her having cheated by getting BOTH canter leads, and then not having the good grace to take down a rail in stadium, which she normally loves to do !

                                    Even little joseph Blatting round clear couldn't catch her. And any way Groom, you may be Delighted, but she's MY BEF, so there. Ner ner. Else I'm going to re-sabotage her saddle. I should totally have left it tipping her forward - I used to have the edge before we fixed the darn thing

                                      Ooooh you fight dirty. I appreciate that... and reconsider having you out to check on my boys' saddles.

                                        I rode at Millbrook. Lots of fun.

                                        I was on the winning prelim ATC team (CDCTA's Ladies in Red). Vernon and I made some huge improvements in a couple of areas (a personal best dressage score- 37- that still left us firmly in second to last in a competitive division, and only 1.6 time penalities), and still have a lot of work to do in other areas (show jumping). But it was a lot of fun. I loved riding with a team and my team, and got to see some really great riding over the weekend and see some friends I have seen in a long time. I haven't done an event like this is in several years, and this was Vernon's first non-one day event and he handled it very well. DW and her son also were in the area and came to watch some xc on Saturday, and stopped by stabling to say hi and give Vernon a pep talk.

                                        Glad to be home...have some things to think about for the rest of the year and have to figure out how to get some show jumping schools in when the ground is concrete, but really truly had SO much fun.
