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!

      I have no problem with it. She made a terrible mistake, and although I think she should've been set down for a bit longer, she has served the sentence laid down. I don't think holding grudges is terribly productive even if you think she's Satan incarnate.

      I was thinking of her tonight--my young horse was jumping through a grid with a ditch in the middle, took one funny step and the next jump was three strides later. I felt the bad step, but in the half-second I might have had to pull her to a halt, I wound up NOT doing so and she completed the exercise, quite stung. Mortified, I hopped off--she had grabbed herself. No major harm, but it immediately reminded me of just how imperfect we are when we're up there trying to ride. Far, far more imperfect than sitting in front of our TV's or computers passing judgement on one another.

      Horses have a lot of lessons to teach us. My Bonnie reminded me tonight that a) horses are brave and honest and like to please us and b) I am a very, very imperfect horse person and ought to remember that without my horse having to get hurt to remind me.

        Everything that I have heard about Amy is that is she a team player, and a great supportive team mate. So, I think they are lucky!

            I think we're lucky to have a two experienced horse and rider pairs on the team since some of the riders are on an international team for the first time or with relatively limited experience.

              How would a true eventing and Olympic fan feel?? GREAT!!

              Poggio and Amy have been extremely consistent at very big International CCI****'s and that record competely entitles them to take a shot at a team medal and an individual one as well.

                Well, although she has earned her spot,I believe that she has put bruise on our sport that has been followed by several black eyes of late. I also feel that she has served her punishment as decreed by the PTB, however, I don't feel her punishment was severe enough. But it is what it is.

                I also feel that the OP is a pot stirring troll who starts up threads or comments on other threads making statements intending to pick at the Amy Tryon scab (and others) and start trouble. Check their post history if you don't believe me.

                      Thank you Sofie. Eventer724's cage rattling and stone throwing gets old when there is never anything new to the caterwauling.

                        Oh for God's sake. Do we have to start this Amy Tryon dialogue again? Let it be. It proves absolutely nothing.

                          I think it's an old OLD story. One of the beautiful things about getting older is learning to let go of the PAST and ignore people who try to stir the pot.
                          Just because I talk slow doesn't mean that I actually AM slow.

                            Amy Tryon

                            Excuse me for everyone who has accused me of stirring the pot...I am not asking anything other than opinions...I just wanted to see what other people think...I agree she is a great rider and competitor and Poggio is a great horse...just curious what other people think of her being selected so soon after the incident at Rolex. Not taking sides...just wanted to see what other people think...also wondering what people think of the fact that the clip of Le Samurai at rolex was just deleted from youtube after the team was selected...I just find that a bit odd...and also perhaps there is so much turmoil in this sport right now, it is not out of the ordinary to question the decisions being made...the examples being set...etc. If I am correct, Laine Ashker has come under much heat...some of which I don't think she deserves...she of all has come forward to say she did make a mistake...everyone makes mistakes...but I believe that many go unrecognized and perhaps we need to not be afraid to acknowledge them

                              There are plenty of threads on this board and others that beat the Amy Tryon drum to death. There are even a couple of threads going on here recently that you posted on (and you know it) that have already covered all of this. So, yes, what you are doing is called pot stirring.

                              So take your pot stirring stick, and your computer and go crawl back under your rock and read them, so as not to clog up the COTH bandwidth with more of this pedantic drivel.

                                I believe my last post was defending Laine Ashker actually...and the only pot stirring post I have started was questioning another top tier person who may have made a big mistake too...it is funny how people react when you question those whom they worship and feel can do no wrong...well guess what, they can, they have and will continue to if they keep getting away with it and are given ample opportunity to just keep doing it. I rarely post on this board because people don't want to get down to the nitty gritty stuff...and that is the exact problem with our sport now as well...the top people want to keep it the way they want it and if anyone questions it...shame on them...and I don't need to be lectured by people who sit on their computers all day...thank you very much...who would have ever thought that asking a legitimate question would yield such defensive response. I believe that Kristin Bachman deserves a spot on our team for putting her horse first and giving him a break...those are the people who are the heart and soul of eventing...

                                  That's great you were defending Laine Ashker, I think most of the rest of us will agree that she needs someone to defend her, or at least dig her out of the hole she is insisting on digging for herself.

                                  I think Kristin Bachman will be a wonderful Olympian when her time comes, based on what I saw this year I don't believe her horse is quite consistent enough. They aren't quite there yet, but for sure their time is coming. She and her horse are one of my favorite up and coming teams.

                                  If you want to talk about stuff for a valid reason that's great, but don't keep bringing up things that have been hashed to death and are currently being beat to hell and back just for the sake of stirring things up. Several current threads will demonstrate that no one on this board has a problem with getting into the "nitty gritty".

                                  No one is lecturing you, dear. We are just older and wiser, and have better insurance (thank you Kathy Bates). And we are making it very clear that we don't have time to take your bait, or put up with your potstirring.
                                  It's getting late, if it were fall I would ask you why you aren't in bed since you must have school in the morning.

                                    Everyone here has their own opinion regarding the AT issue/incident that will not be altered by any further debate.
                                    Whatever opinon any of us has on that particular incident, Poggio and Amy made the team and it is an Olympic year.
                                    Absolutely nothing to be gained at this point by a repeat re-hashing.

                                        lol! I love that line too, I'm older and have more insurance. Or in this case, I'm older and have more important things to read/discuss than something that happened more than a year ago, was dealt with, and we have all moved on.
