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!

        Thanks for the link. Doug is one of my favorite up and coming riders. I did not know that Running Order is only 10. Hopefully, he will be great horse for Doug for many more years.

          I love this video...and a lot of what Doug produces and puts on his blog. He is a fantastic rider and an equally good businessman. His commentary was enlightening...and I smiled every time he kept mentioning how cool it was to have a crowd cheer for you. It was like he almost couldn't believe it himself. I can't imagine how awesome that would be...but I almost got to live it with him as he rode.

          Fantastic!

                this was awesome. *Almost* makes me want to try cross country, although I am a super weenie and fences that DO come down scare me enough, lol.

                I loved him likening his horse to a 12 year old with ADD on speed, lol. He has some great commentary.

                Wasn't Doug Payne the one who posted the helmet cam vid of him coming off some catch ride a few months ago too at an indoor event? I remember cracking up at that video.

                  Seriously cool!

                  I had to look back at my Rolex pix to see what Doug (#24) looked like on course as I didn't see any bulky video equipment. You can barely see anything hooked up here: image of Doug Payne (#24) on course. (I don't recall which fence this was, but you can see the inflation cord going to his vest)

                  It's a shame his sister (#25) was eliminated on course Holly looked solid when she came by the fence I was at.

                    Very cool! I can't imagine how nervous Marilyn Payne (his mom) was having TWO of her children on course at the same time. And I got to meet ACMEventing! Another treat.

                      And I got to meet the very engaging and delightful Riderboy, the smart and beautiful Gryhrse, and the OTTB guru JudyBigRedPony! Wish I could have met more COTHers, but the day just got away from me.

                      In fact, I was thinking of starting a "Who did you meet at Rolex?" thread.

                          Judybigredpony was right behind us! How weird was that. Engaging and delightful? Well, as they say if you got it you can spot it! And of course, that goes for your kind words about Gryhrs.

                            Thanks for posting this! That was great to watch and listen to.
                            I would have loved to hear it in real time (I love to hear the rider talk to his horse on course) but this was very informative.

                            The one thing about these helmet cam videos tho, they make the course look easier than it is and the fences smaller than in reality. When I went to Rolex I was having heart palpitations just walking the course and looking at some of those massive jumps! Especially those Trakehners and Weldon Walls. ((shudder)))

                              Great video

                              I love seeing the helmet cam's - but this was the best with a play by play analysis. I've never met Doug - but as an xc jump judge at the Fork the last two years - I will never forget he was the ULR who stopped both years on couse walks to thank this smurf for volunteering.

                                I was also impressed at how subtle the camera was. In fact, knowing that he records helmet cam videos a lot, I was looking to see if he was wearing it when he came by me at Rolex, and I didn't think he had one on!

                                  Love this video!
                                  It would have been neat for him to do a course walk video as well it would give a better perspective of just how massive those fences are! I remember walking it in 2009 when I was there as a groom, I think that was the moment I decide that I would never be a **** rider! Though I would love to Own a **** horse one day and head back to Rolex as an Owner!

                                      I have volunteered as a jump judge at 3 recognized events this spring. Literally hundreds of riders and coaches passed right next to me, and only one (the coach of a beginner novice rider) stopped to say "Thank you for volunteering". That one person made it worthwhile. Someone noticed that we were there and appreciated it.

                                      We do not become fence judges, or dressage or SJ "runners" collecting score cards, for money or recognition, but because we want to see events in our area continue.

                                      As you all walk your x/c courses, please remember that the jump judges do not have to be there. We do not have to give up an entire day to sit and watch horses come galloping by every 2 minutes.

                                      A "thank you for volunteering" goes a long way toward making us want to volunteer the next time.

                                        Good point LH. I volunteer when possible and always shout out a "thank you!" when I'm riding. Volunteers make this sport possible (and I tell my DH that every time I twist his arm to fence judge )
