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!

  • Hagyard MidSouth Team Challenge Wait Listed

    I just went to the www.kyevents.net website and found that the event entries for Team Challenge are aready full.

    I am very happy for the Organizer, but my team members did not get their entries in on time. Unless they get bumped up the list, I will be looking for another team.

    Anyone looking for a fourth?

      Not to change the subject, but did I count right??? Is there REALLY only FOUR of us in the P3DE??? Sad....kudos to the MidSouth for holding it.

        Auburn- want to do Novice? My friend's team needs a fourth.

        YB- I was debating between the 1* and the P3D then realized I didn't have the money for either . So just HT for us. I will cheer for you steeplechase morning!!

        Can't wait to get back to the horse park!!
        5, 4, 3, 2, 1, GO - you're on course!

          I wish that I could be ready for Novice. I saw the kind of course that Novice had last year. Nope. I definitely cannot be ready for that kind of course in 5 weeks.

          This week, I just started back riding for the first time in two months. Of course, Tess has been doing well with Madeline B. aboard, but I have been doing nada. I re-instated my gym membership, too, so I should be good to go for BN.

          Thank you for the offer, though.

            I couldn't believe how quickly it filled this year but it's great news for the organizers! My DD is riding on a BN team that may need a 4th rider. DD is a college student and the other riders are full fledged grown ups.

            If you're interested let me know and I'll PM you the contact details!

              I am so glad you are riding again! I was excited to see your name on the entry list! Staying at a level you are comfortable is always best!

                Wow, just shows how much pent up demand in Lexington due to WEG!


                • #9
                  I'm so excited! It looks like 34 are in the T3D!

                  Auburn, it is indeed wonderful to see you on the entry list again. Go Tess!

                    I think I counted five of us... Either way it is very sad that it is not being more strongly supported. I have a feeling that the P3D may not be around for much longer. The T3D seems to be well supported but it looks like once the P3D lost FEI recognition intrest in participating has dropped. I personally foundthe P3D more appealing then the FEI 1star in that there is MUCH less paperwork

                      It's very disappointing to have the biggest competition of my year (and the thing I've been trying to do for 8 years!) be so so small. I know the experience of it will be worth it, but it wish there were more people doing it.


                      • #12
                        That is really too bad about the P3D. I wish more people would support it. There's still quite a few pros in the T3D which I think is cool, but you don't even NEED to do a * to do a **, so it would be great if people would support the long format.

                        YB - When it's all said and done, you will have experienced the biggest thrill of your life, know your horse and yourself handled a long format * (minus the FEI crap) and you won't care that there's only 5 people.

                        If I had the horse and the funds to make it there and play, I would enter it instead of the * in a heartbeat.


                        • #13
                          The issue is that the P3DE doesn't "qualify" for anything.

                          If you ask a bunch of the competitors why they are doing the * instead of the 3 day they will say their coach said the P3DE isn't a qualifier for anything and to do the *.

                          Never mind that most of the people aren't really qualifying for anything that they'll be doing in the near future, if ever.... If the coaches don't encourage the riders to train and compete in the 3 day it won't fill.


                          • #14
                            I agree with LAZ. Kevin did the P 3d at VA this spring and we didn't care if it didn't qualify him for anything!! It qualified him as a more rounded better educated rider & horseman. If and when he wants to do a 2* then we'll worry about it. He would be doing the P 3D @ Mid South too except his school schedule is a bear this semester.



                            • #15
                              I don't know about US, but FEI and EC qualifiers call for a CCI* OR a CIC** in order to do a CCI**... so you can actually skip * altogether.


                              • #16
                                Actually, I don't think it even has to be a CCI...I think you can use a CIC*, which is why I attempted (sigh) to do the CIC at Plantation. I have this all somewhere....

                                Oh well...I have a feeling steeplechase will be very educational for BOTH of us, so I am looking forward to that. Can't say so about R and T (Vernon HATES trot sets, so I can't imagine he'll be much fun to ride)....


                                • #17
                                  I have a wait list concern. My shipper and the person I'm staying with down there have been waitlisted. Right now we're both freaking. I really hope she gets in. I wish there was a way to add more time in the day so more people can compete.

                                  Yellowbritches I had hoped to be in the P3DE but I seem to have SJ issues that are preventing me from getting qualifying scores so until I get the SJ figured out it's the T3DE for me.
                                  I thought the rule had been changed so that the P3DE was a qualifying score now.
                                  I hope more people enter so they still hold the P3DE in the future.

                                    A and C is WAY more fun that trot sets. For one thing, it's a totally new place. For another, you get to canter a bit and walk a bit. You get to watch other people go xc and steeplechase, and if Vernon is anything like Roux, you get to try to hold on while he's practicing his acrobatics while horses are galloping B DIRECTLY beside you

                                      I sent my entry in on Sept 8th (the day after it opened) and I'm not on the entry list I'm a little freaked out right now.

                                        With so many people going for the week I wonder if it'd be possible to do Novice earlier or more spread out so that more people can do it.
