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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

  • Eliminations

    If you get eliminated from lower level eventing can you still continue for experience or change to HC?

  • #2
    This will be covered in the rule book. A quick search turned up this page from May, which I assume is still current: https://useventing.com/news-media/ne...o-horse-trials

    You have to get permission to continue.

    In my experience from volunteering, if the schedule is not packed solid / the officials are not too busy to deal with you, and if it was something silly like forgetting the course in stadium, you may be allowed to go ahead and jump cross country. If there is any safety concern, (out of control, multiple refusals,) you probably will not be allowed.

      What I have seen fence judging is that if you are eliminated in SJ before XC, you can ride XC “with permission”. Under the standard set up that means you can ride XC until your first refusal (actually any penalty).

      If you are eliminated on XC, generally the TD will not give permission for you to continue riding due to the risk that the reason you were eliminated is that you or your horse can not safely complete XC. Plus it would be very confusing for all the people involved in making XC run to add a horse back in in the middle of XC.

        I saw someone once get eliminated in dressage due to some cows charging across the field behind the judge. They didn't even make it down the centerline. The management was nice enough to still let them do their jumping phases anyways.

          Yes to the above. In Area 2, the majority of TDs (or SJ judges/CDs - who is sometimes also the TD) will allow riders to go x-country after a TE in SJ. If you are E’d due to refusals, it’s less likely that you will be allowed to continue to x-country - for obvious reasons. I saw it allowed once at the late, great Rubicon - after much discussion by the judge and the POGJ. It might have been a pro on a greenie at BN, so was allowed “for schooling purposes.”

          Years ago a friend was TE’d after her SJ round for using a running without reins stops (and she obviously never did that again!) but was allowed to go c-country since it wasn’t “dangerous.”

          The “one stop on cross country and you’re out” rule always applies...

          At recognized HTs you will NEVER be allowed to continue after being E’d for either stops or going off course; as a jump judge I have had to stop riders md-course at my fence - many of whom are initially confused until I break the bad news. If a rider is at the very end of the course after a TE they will sometimes let them finish if they are not dangerous (also there needs to be confirmation of the TE via radio, which might take 30 seconds or so.)

          At Starter Trials, they will occasionally allow horses at the Baby Levels to continue after an E for the schooling experience, but that varies from venue to venue.

            Basically what everyone said.
            I have been allowed to continue when my green horse came upon a muddy spot in the sj ring and just stopped and I popped off. Since it had nothing to do with the actual jumps, I was allowed to go xc.
            My friend forgot to remove her bell boots for dressage a couple weeks ago. Judge didn't notice until the end of the test. She got a TE, but was allowed to jump.

              You HAVE TO ask for permission. But it will often be granted.

                Just to cover the question - HC is only allowed as an official designation, I think, in the case of a special permission for a rider/horse to go in a division in which they probably don't belong. If, for example, an entry in the Rider division has an ammy rider get sick at the last minute, but the rider's trainer can ride instead, but for some reason the entry can't switch divisions, then the trainer-horse combo will ride as HC. They will be scored and the scores will be published, but the HC will be designated instead of the placing (so no ribbons). Reasons the ride times can't be moved to another division in which the trainer is eligible could be that the other division has already begun, or else that ride times are tight and the GJ/TD/whoever doesn't think they can work in another entry.

                On the other hand, if a rider is TE'd but allowed to finish their jumping phases, that isn't an HC. As I understand it. They are just a sort of ghostly figure whose only scoring result is an E.

                I have been told that the USEA does not want even a TE to continue the jumping phases at a recognized event. If you're E, you're out of the jumping, regardless. I don't know if that is a formal written policy or just a strong directive to TD's, but that's what I've heard from authoritative sources.

                  hmm that’s interesting.....I haven’t experienced that. In my area it seems the ones who are allowed to continue their weekend are the competitors who get a TE. I got a TE last year at my first novice (who needs to jump fence 6 anyway, come on 🙄😂) in stadium and they allowed me to do cross country the next day. The only rule was that if I had one stop that was it, I would have to call it a day. Another friend of mine got TEd at Rebecca just this past weekend and they let her show jump the next day. So it’s interesting that there is a strong preference to not have a person with a TE continue their weekend. I could see not allowing a competitor to continue on an E or RF, but a TE is ususally just a dumb silly mistake

                    I recently missed jump #4 on XC (I didn't even realize it because I came out of the woods in the wrong spot, so #4 was already behind my line of sight). No one stopped me or notified me until I came through the finish flags and the TD informed me. I asked whether I could still go to SJ and he said "absolutely"! I ended up with a TE but still ran all three phases.

                      Agree with the above two posters; in Area 2, I have never seen someone with a TE (usually for going off course) NOT allowed to continue with the “one stop rule.”

                      The TD and Brian O’Connor - who announces many of our area HTS - always cover this in the JJ orientation, and I have jump judged numerous times at pretty much all the area venues. None of the officials I’ve worked with have ever said differently...

                      It happened to me recently and Kathy White (SJ CD and TD) told me I could go on to x-country with the one stop rule.

                      Now if the rider is dangerous? Whole different story.

                        Around here, in my experience, if it is an unrecognized the rider will be allowed to continue. If it is recognized, they will not. It's really too bad because I think the chance to complete the jumping phases is important for someone who put in the preparation, time and money to be there ... but that's what's been passed along, and said to be coming from the USEA. Who knows, maybe some TD's are more cautious than others.
