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!

        Stream just came up on H&C (you will need to pay for the subscription for today, as opposed to dressage). First horse leaves the box in 9 minutes.

          It's actually on Youtube - they are streaming the x-country.

          A horse just came a cropper in the water complex; tripped, rider came off, horse was limping badly behind as he led it out. LOTS of skinnies, but so far just a few glance offs.

            The horse that came up very 3-legged was Archie Rocks.

                Yes, that was upsetting to see.

                  Yes, YouTube stream, or paid H&C stream if you’d like English commentary.

                    Rough day for Ludvig Svennestral. He didn't complete on any of his 3 horses.

                      Ludwig is very open about his policy of retiring if he has a single penalty. He won't continue if he isn't competitive.

                      I feel bad for Tim Price. Second time falling off in the water due to a horse stumble when he was on a 5* winner with a good shot at another win. Tim seems to have cycles of bad luck sometimes. I'm not sure if anyone would say he should ride differently into water, but I'm sure he'll be asking himself that.

                      The image I can't get out of my head is the frightening horse fall when a rider, out of control with a piece of broken tack (suspect it was the martingale) was unable to steer and his horse tried to jump a huge unjumpable palisade. I hope he recieves a yellow card and that the horse is ok.

                        I saw him interviewed recently, and he said if he has a stop or runout, he retires. I am guessing he doesn't want to risk the horse, but I would certainly jump at least one more fence so the horse doesn't get to thinking, hmm a stop, and we're through!
                        About Archie Rocks, weird that 3 horses fell there, (and one was the unfortunate Tim Price,) and they were in the water, not even to the jump. It makes me wonder if it was deeper, and the drag upset the momentum. Archie seemed to plow on and smashed into the jump. And speaking of smashing into the jump! Raphael had a broken rein and tried to jump that massive dividing wall and literally face-planted into it. I didn't appreciate the rider throwing his tack all over, he should have been concerned about his poor horse.

                          Yes, just saw that. It was Jack Pinkney on Rafeal. That was not the first tack breakage I saw while watching, and it looked like Jack was having steering issues without the tack- so he should have pulled up, rather than waiting for a big accident like that to happen. He was throwing off his own equipment, threw his crop down, threw his jacket down- looked like a 4 yr old. Poor horse! When your tack fails, it is not the horse's fault, dude- it is your fault! People like that give eventers a bad name and rep.

                            He was pretty close to the end of the course and had been managing the horse quite well (who looked very difficult)....the horse not only smashed into the wall...he smashed both of them into the wall. He was then pulling off his equipment and heading after his horse. I’m sure frustrated but also hurting....they showed him back with his horse and he didn’t show any anger and wasn’t rough with his horse at all.

                                Results show Ludwig Svennerstal with two eliminations and one reitrement.

                                  Did I say something different? He had a runout, and he retired.
                                  Actually, he had two falls and a runout.

                                    Although I didn't get to watch all of the Pau XC today, what I did see makes me say this. Why were so many, many flags hit/knocked down at Fair Hill when I only saw 1 flag get knocked today? (There were 2, 15 pt penalties on the scoreboard).

                                    Were the flags at FH attached differently than at Pau or was it just that the skinnies at Pau weren't as skinny as at FH and/or the skinnies at FH were really too skinny. I hate the 15 penalty rule the way it is now. Watching stadium at FH, some of the horses twisted over the jumps to make sure they got their back feet out of the way. If the stadium jumps were skinny, they would have knocked the flag down. Horses sometimes need to twist but it doesn't mean they are not jumping the jump.

                                      I saw one horse that truly didn't go over the fence, but I think that rider retired. There were way too many skinnies and corners. Hard turns to skinnies.

                                        I did not watch the live feed and read this thread before looking at any results. The way this thread had evolved wrt the discussion of Ludvig and the emphasis on his retiring if he is not having a competitive run led me to think he had retired all three horses. I was surprised when I looked at the results in more detail and saw he had a horse fall and a rider fall and only one retirement.
