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!

    Who does everyone think will win the 3* this year?

    I'm hoping for Allison and Arthur, love them!

    Does anyone know who photographer is this year/was last year?

  • #2
    They're doing great! Soo impressed. At this point I think they have a great chance of winning.

    Who is Arthur? Can you tell me about him a little?

      Hoping someone can explain the T3D scoring for me - as it appears now. Don't know much about scoring it ... didn't find the info on the web.


      As it appears at this moment, obviously not all the penalty points added to the cumulative score are showing on the chart. Anyone know about that? Perhaps missed Phase A & C markers, or something? A few examples are #'s 162, 160, 166 (all together placing 11-12-13 after xc.) And showing in 21st place after xc, #170 has 247.1 points.

      Thanks for the information. I know a rider who looks like she moved up quite a lot since dressage, fingers-crossed that the placings on this chart are correct for her sake.

        p.s. Go Allison & Arthur! Yay Snip!

        3* xc everyone jumped clean, no one made the time (although some were very close.) Any remarks by those who saw it?

          The video tour on eventingnation was awesome. It was shot via a remote control helicopter. Very cool. I felt like I was there.

            OverandOnward, it's impossible to "explain" those results as posted without a breakdown of the 4 components on XC day. They are just showing results for D in the breakdown, and totals clearly include penalties incurred on A-B-C.

            I board at Waredaca, which has hosted a T3d since they began, and I have been on site in some capacity (including riding) every year. Penalties on A-B-C include:
            * Missing a marker on A or C
            * Refusal on B. Rare, but it happens
            * Timing/ scheduling screw up resulting in serious time faults on A or C
            * Held in box after C, late to D. Those time faults accrue -- if you are to start D at 3:35 and the vet holds you till 3:37...
            * Time faults on B
            * Late to A. Rare, but it happens. Again, the clock starts, and if you are not there...

              My SIL is in that T3D and said there were mistakes made in the scoring--4 riders were given time penalties and all made inquiries following the posting of the scores. I don't know where that stands at this point. My SIL didn't miss a gate, wasn't held, nothing. Made time on CC. So...not sure what's up.

              Heck, she was rung out in dressage for being off course....and wasn't! Had to restart. She was the 12th rider to go in that test. You'd think the judge would have known the test by then

                Arthur is a very enigmatic horse. He absolutely skips around the XC but if you watch, he is always finding something to spook at. His run at Rolex looked amazing but he was quite wiggly from spooking here and there. That said, he and Allison are one of my absolute favorite pairs and her patience and hard work with him is to be admired. Unfortunately, as exemplified on Sunday, he can also be one of the most heartbreaking.

                  Does anyone know who the photographer was this year? I'd like to go check out some photos of a few of my friends that were riding

                        Missing Tack

                        I hesitated to post this, as I was hoping my tack would turn up, but it has not.

                        On the Saturday of XC at Rebecca Farm, I had a fall XC and when I left the cool-out area, could not carry my bucket of tack. I left it with a group who said they would take it back to stabling, but for whatever reason, that did not happen. When I returned to the field in the early evening, the gray 5 gallon pail was there, with my sponges in the bottom, but not tack.

                        My bridle had my number on it (#29) so an "innocent" mistake is hard to claim.

                        -Brown round-raised Stubben bridle with slow twist snaffle
                        -Brown round-raised breastplate with running attachment
                        -Brown adjustable leather girth (large buckle in the middle)
                        -Bell boots - Large black Classic Equine
                        -Horse boots - black, open front and closed hinds, very light-weight (won't absorb water), almost styrofoam consistency
                        -black pimple gloves (cheap)
                        -blue whip (cheap)

                        If anyone has any information, or if this tack accidentally ended up at your barn, please let me know!

                          Wow, I hope someone turns it up!!! And I hate to think that someone would steal a whole pile of tack. But sadly anything is possible. Very low.

                            Especially for eventers at Rebecca Farms! I have fingers crossed that your tack WILL show up. People picked it up but didn't know who to give it too. Front desk is optimum but still . . . I found several shoes on my x-c last walk and I turned them in. I have lost shoes myself!

                              I lost a lovely turquoise ring there, too. Hard to misplace as the turquoise was the size of my thumb. On the off chance...

                              I'm sorry Blugal

                                Sarah Kelly was great, she let me announce it at the competitor's party, but I'm afraid the party was winding up by then. I also left a list of items missing at the office, and reported it to the police. Unfortunately homeowners' insurance had too high a deductible to make a claim worthwhile for me

                                  Some people - disgusting.... Years ago I lost a custom made jockey stick at the old Mountain Meadows. I know where I dropped it (between the warm up ring and the start box) and it had my name and phone number on the handle. Never showed up, either. It's not the loss, but that people stoop so low.
