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!

    CCI L Events

    Is there a time frame in which a horse cannot compete in a long format event? There’s one horse competing in the 4*L at Jockey Club that also finished the Fair Hill CCI4*L. Found that interesting they can compete at that level so close together?

    No, there is no rule.

          It is 100% sincere. A month is not an unreasonable amount of time. Europeans often turnaround even more quickly.

            The optimum time for the 4-L at Fair Hill was 10 minutes 10 seconds. That is a significant task, in my opinion, and I do not think horses should be asked to run that long, nor to do the conditioning needed to stay fit, twice over in the space of a month.

              I agree if you were doing it every month of the year, that would be a big ask. But no one is competing like that. If your horse came out of the competition sound and fit, four weeks is a substantial amount of recovery time.

              The bottom line is you have to know your horse.

              Pull up some of the top Europeans in the FEI database and you will see it happens with a fair amount of regularity over there— not all the time, but often enough that it’s not eyebrow raising.

              I’m assuming the horse & rider in question are the experienced 5* mount being ridden by the assistant at one of the top barns in the country. That team has the knowledge to know what a horse can or can’t handle at that level.

                Let's be transparent. It's Michael Pendleton riding 16 year old Steady Eddie, former mount of Boyd Martin.

                I don't know the rider or the program. Appears to me the reason for this is because they picked up 15 XC penalties at Fair Hill.

                I read an article on Mara DePuy, who evidently did a fair portion of the Fair Hil XC before falling off. She gave her horse 10 days off, decided to reroute, evidently did a week's flatwork, a XC school, and a gallop before coming. Perhaps that sort of schedule is fair enough for the horse.

                You are correct that others do this. Michael Jung has, once with anazing placings (can't remember but I think won or placed at Luhmuhlen).

                  A relatively common European pattern is to run Badminton, then turn around and run the CCI4*-S at Tattersalls 3 weeks later, then compete at Luhmuhlen 2 weeks later.

                  That's two CCI5*-L and a CCI4*-S in the span of about 5 weeks. A lot of American riders have a hard time keeping their horses sound through a single 5* a year; I imagine we have very few horses or riders who could keep up with that type of European schedule. We just don't have the access to competition in North American to easily replicate something like that.

                  Another one of my favorites is how some Europeans will run a horse in early April, then turn around 2-3 weeks later and fly the horse across the ocean to Kentucky to kick our butts, then compete again at home within the month or so.

                    My understanding is that picking up either 11 or 15 penalties doesn't affect an NQR though.

                      Personally imo, 4 weeks interval between 4*L is not common or usual in Europe (unless pulled up on Xc and re-routed)

                        In order to do Kentucky in the spring, they need 2 qualifying runs at CCI 4 star longs. So Fair Hill counted with the 15, but they needed another.

                          Yeah I was thinking he'd done the 4*L at Bromont but it was the 3*.

                            Tim Price is one who comes to mind. He tends to run his horses back quickly, especially if he's had a bad run.
                            https://data.fei.org/Horse/Performan...4E1EF1D23BBB71

                            I wasn't implying it was common as in "everyone is doing it." Rather, it is much more common there to have short intervals between competitions than in the US where we have less total competitions at the upper levels and more distance between them.

                              He was eliminated at Badminton. How early in course was he eliminated? If it was towards the beginning then of course it’s reasonable to reroute to Tatts then luhmuhlen. Your comment above suggests that riders are completing courses like badminton then doing other horse trials right off the bat and that is absolutely not true.

                                This year in 2019, he pulled up Bango at The Lake, which was maybe fences 23-25 or so. The horse was getting very strong & had a stop at The Hollow (approx fence 8?ish) & went slow as a schooling round till The Lake, which was near the stabling, then pulled up & hacked back to the stabling. The FEI record linked above was a different horse (Wesko) & was Badminton/Tattersalls/Luhmuhlen 2014. Not sure where he got eliminated in 2014 on Wesko.

                                  I will admit I have not paid enough attention to completion rates at Badminton, which is a big faux pas on my part. Thanks for bringing that to my attention.

                                  But I stand by my statement that it is more common in European than it is in the United States to compete at the advanced level on four weeks or less between events.

                                  Louise Harwood has done Badminton/Luhmuhlen back to back with several horses. Several others, will go to Badminton then continue competing every month through the summer. Like this guy:
                                  https://data.fei.org/Horse/Performan...120FD73592C96B

                                  Andrew Hoy turns his around fast as well. Like Rutherglen, who ran 2 "old" CIC3* (including the Nations Cup at Aachen) and an old 4* between 6/6/14 and 7/15/14:
                                  https://data.fei.org/Horse/Performan...27CCF5E39DE2EC

                                  In 2016, Joseph Murphy did the old-3* Nations Cup in late April, ran Badminton the first weekend in May, then ran Luhmuhlen early June.
                                  https://data.fei.org/Horse/Performan...9C8BD81F6157A5

                                  Or even the brilliant Ingrid Klimke, who ran Sap Hale Bob Old pretty darn regularly, going up and down between levels leading up to now-5* or championship events.

                                    Boyd confirms what I wanted to say, but was biting my tongue so as not to spread hearsay— they are trying to get Mike Pen qualified for Kentucky while he has this opportunity to lease Steady Eddie:

                                      So we have 2 euro riders (plus a handful more I’d suspect) who have completed a long format and then done another within 6 weeks over the last 5 years or so - common then

                                      The original post was about long format completions - not CICs. If the goalposts are changing then yes most definitely short format advanced, monthly, is common in Europe.

                                        Having spent time overseas, I would politely disagree about Europeans running back to back long formats in this quick of turnaround unless there was not a completion. While they may compete at advanced level events back to back to back, I think it’s important to factor in they have a proper off season for their horses, where we have events in this country all year long at this point.

                                        I don’t doubt Boyd and team know how the horse can handle it, I was curious if the FEI had a timeframe in place. If not, i believe they should.
