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!

  • The Ark FEH/NEH/YEH Aug 14th

    I have been in contact with Abbey from The Ark regarding the status of the FEH/NEH/YEH and unfortunately they only have 5 entries (2 of them are mine) thus far and need another 5 to make a go of it.

    So...if you have been thinking about entering, PLEASE, send them in so that it can go forward. There are very vew FEH/YEH and this is the first NEH in the southeast, please help make it happen!

    Or bite the judge for being too close. He is a 'pistol', showing a 'colts' slant on things whenever possible. ...!!

    Cheers

      Depending on how the stars (and traffic on 95) align, there is a very outside chance that I can enter my new 3yo TB. I'm bringing her down to NC a couple days before, and FEH would be great for her. (JMP and I are going in on this love-- she's just a "plain bay" mare, but there is something very special in her. Incredible and HIGHLY brilliant personality. With being just three weeks off the track, she's already behaving like a seasoned competitor.)

      As I referenced in the thread from April about the Ark, it is THE best experience for horses and riders! These additional classes for the youngsters are a great opportunity to get out and about, and it is a very nice prep for the fall season.

      Perhaps Abbey or someone in the know will chime in, but isn't there a combined test that weekend, too? Riders/handlers can take their other horses, get more experience, and maybe even school the XC. Perfect training opportunity! (FWIW, if you are contemplating entering but don't want to run in the ungodly heat, I'm willing to catch-handle or catch-ride for free-- please just provide ice. )

      The Ark is providing such wonderful services and opportunities for riders in the southeast, and I vehemently encourage everyone to enter.

          Yep, Andrea, we are running an NCDCTA-recognized D/CT/SJ Derby on the 13th (Saturday) and the FEH/NEH/YEH on Sunday. We did that specifically so riders/trainers could make a weekend of it, as we're running pre-maiden (1'11") through intermediate in eventing and Intro through FEI dressage (something for everyone!). The XC course is also open to all competitors (including YEH horses) on Saturday.

          Hope those of you who have posted can make it!

            That would almost make it happen!

            Gosh Wits End Eventing, you would almost make the needed entries to keep the show alive. Just read the nice write up on you in the USEA magazine, very nice!

            And I'll hope it's 'in the stars' for Glenbaer to bring their new superstar!

            It really is a fun group at The Ark and a very good outing for all horses, not just the young ones. And it's just as interesting to the humans as well. Lots to see.

            Fingers crossed!

              Hopefully I'll be there for the weekend (a few rounds and maybe XC Saturday, then the NEH Sunday), just need to get entries sent in

              Second loving the Ark! Did the whole frostbite series last year with my Appy just for fun. We did a super low level and barely got through... he was not exactly the picture of event horse or willingness... "you want me to do WHAT?! A dressage test?! INTRO dressage?! WHAT ARE YOU THINKING?!?! Idiot!!!" so by the time we got to the little jumps he was so PO'd that our rounds sucked... He felt insulted by the fact that I wasn't running him Prelim or doing jumpers over the winter. Still, love love love the Ark!

                  Quick question-- I can send in the muck deposit with the entry stuff, as long as it's on a separate check, right? I haven't stabled there overnight before so just thought I'd double check...

                    Absolutely--we tear checks up when the stalls are stripped (so separate is your/my friend!). Right now, we only have 2 horses stabling, so I should be able to fit everyone into the boarder barn versus the show barns.

                      I imagine I'll get my act together to bring someone.... if I can wrangle some helpers, maybe I could bring the 5yo and the yearling.

                          Thanks! We were really excited when we were contacted about that.

                          Fair warning to all the parents out there, we are bringing our Haflinger/German Riding Pony cross (http://witsendeventing.com/Foals/Valiant_Voyager.html) to show and he is darn cute

                            Darn cute is an understatement!

                            Valiant Voyager is way too cute, can't wait to see that one and all the others.

                            It was really fun last year when I showed our TB yearling and although he's still a good looking fella (ok, Mom's biased!) it's not that cuteness factor. And 'Dad' will be showing him for the first time and I'm looking forward to watching and taking pics.

                            It sounds like there will be enough entries to make it a go...that is such good news!

                            See you there!

                              I think I'll have to keep my PARENT clear of him... she's a sucker for cute ponies, I'm beginning to think even more so than me!

                                I was thinking of bringing my 2yo, even though he's not super event-typey. Off to check the schedule to see if it would work

                                  Anyone know what the expected turnout for the NEH conformation/in-hand section is? I've heard a variety of things so wasn't sure...

                                    NEH turnout for in hand

                                    From the USEA website on the NEH program:
                                    Section 1 – Conformation and Type

                                    Each horse is stripped of tack and shown in hand to the judge. Handlers are to stand their horse up for inspection by the judge who will assess conformation and type. The horse is judged on potential for soundness, speed and stamina. Handlers will be asked to walk and trot them in a straight line for soundness and correctness. Color, size and gender should not be a factor in a horse's score.

                                    It is based on the YEH and to me seems much like the 'jog' for horses in FEI events or 3DE's.

                                    Maybe Emily or Wendy could help clarify for us, I have not had much success getting a response from my questions to Wendy regarding the NEH, so I am not sure if my emails are getting through or she is just swamped. Maybe someone else could give it a whirl.

                                    Right now I am planning on presenting like I would dress for the FEH inspection. White shirt, khaki pans and good shoes for running in. Of course it will depend on how the ridden portion is times, I could be in my dressage attire!

                                    Anyone else have thoughts?

                                      We'll run the in-hand inspections "big to little", starting with the 5yo and working down. That way, the riders who have dressage and jumping phases will have time to tack up/change/warm up while the babies are being judged on the triangle.

                                      That said, right now, it's mostly babies, so Aussie08 may be jogging in her dressage kit since she has both an NEH horse and 2yo!

                                        That sounds like a really good plan

                                        Abbey, good thinking, especially in light of how hot it's been of late. That will help things move along. And I can do the in hand in dressage wear...I'm a terrible runner anyway so field boots can just be my excuse for not running well...!

                                        But, I'm not handling the 2yr old this time....my husband Wayne will be taking over the reins of in hand showing this year! And it's his very first time! So we'll have lots of fun that weekend.
