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!

    This is too great! I have gone Novice, horse has not, but I want to be there!
    We're spending our money on horses and bourbon. The rest we're just wasting.

      6th-7th is good!

      I'm currenly competing at Novice, and will have done 5 of them this year by the time Sept rolls around. I'd be comfortable doing a TL group, so long as it isn't T-about-to-go-P Actually, an Intro To Training session with JW would be fabulous! Doesn't look like AECs is in the cards this year (unless Champagne Run turns out *really* well) so the clinic would be the topper to my year

      Wheee! thank you for setting this up!

        The Area VIII Beginner Novice Championships are the last weekend in August, too. We are going to those, as well as the AEC's in the middle of September. I do hate missed opportunities. Maybe I can play jump crew?

          I support either dates.

          Would the format of the clinic be an all gymnastic type of clinic? Or show jumping and cross country?


          • #45

            Good question. If it were all gymnastics, then we could probably play. In fact, it would be a very good prep for the AEC's.


            What do you think?

            • #46
              Will this be a gymnastics and SJ clinic, or one day of jumps that fall down and one day that don't, to be ungrammatical about it?

              Afraid I can't make it either way, mind you, but it's fun to see a clinic taking shape on line!



              • #47
                I'd love to do a little of both, mostly because I can never get me enough XC. And I'd love to tackle some Training questions under a Master's eye, I rarely get a chance to school XC at all, never mind in exhalted company! In reality though the gymnastic work would be very beneficial for both this rider and her horse, even though not quite as thrilling to ride

                Any idea at what sort of cost we're looking at, very roughly?


                • #48
                  Well, I just found a relatively local unrecognized event on the 6/7th that I thougth about going to but the clinic sounds like a blast. Plus I already have tentative plans the next weekend AND it's the last local circuit hunter show in this area and the little girl who owns the horse I'd be bringing probably wants to do that instead. So that was my long winded explanation of saying as long as the horse owner is up for the expense, I could do the 6/7th in a Novice group. Please let us know the format and when you have things nailed down, how to enter, cost, etc.

                    Because of the surrounding weekends competitions, it's going to be two days of show jumping. That and I simply don't have time to get xc ready for true T or P questions. So 2 days of jumps that fall down (or hopefully not!!). As to price, I have to crunch some numbers, but I'm going to keep it as affordable as possible. In order to do that, I'm going to charge a nominal fee to audit (jump crew gets in free and gets a free hot lunch!)


                    • #50
                      I don't have a horse to ride, but would love to volunteer to help out in any way you might need! Otherwise, I will very happily audit.


                      • #51
                        If he is willing, I might have a second horse, one novice and one crawling up to the beg nov level. We may be at that hight.

                        Again I am in with one if not two.


                        • #52

                          Since the clinic will probably be gymnastics and show jumping, then please count me in.

                            Definitely would go if the dates worked out. I have a horse I would take training. I've done one schooling training HT with him and some CT's but really want some more x-country schooling before I do another training horse trial. Had my eye on Ky Classic but would wait for Mid-south in Oct. to get the chance to school with Jimmy Wofford first.


                            • #54
                              I shall keep that date open and plan on auditing one day...probably the first one. Maybe I will bring another.

                              Be sure you keep us posted on the date on here and link to your contact info..I am serious, I will be there.

                              Do we get lunch? It is tradtional to provide something at clinics.
                              When opportunity knocks it's wearing overalls and looks like work.

                                    Since my in-laws live in Walton, I will gladly drop off the kids and volunteer both days!!
                                    I can play jump crew or help with anything else!!! If any one would want to attend from Louisville and just needs a ride w/ horse or without I would be willing to trailer if need be.

                                      6th and 7th would probaly work for us...

                                        Findeight of course there will be lunch. It might be cold chicken in a bucket or bbq, that is the last thing on the list right now. I'm thinking we're going to be in the $250 for the clinic, $50 for a stall or a paddock w/run in. The limit of total riders for the clinic is 24 max, so there will be a small charge to audit and I'm still going to be in the hole. The more people that don't mind paying a small fee to audit, the nicer their lunch can be. There is a wonderful woman that caters Camargo's hunt breakfasts, maybe I can get her.
