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!

    My Echo is in the USEA database... so as far as i know that is not a typo. There is also 1 26 year old on the board.

    Young Horse varies by level. We had originally planned to do 2 YH awards -- one for BN - T and 1 for P-A and we determined the ages by making the first 2 years of eligibility as the determining factory -- 4-5 years old for BN, N and T (born 2000/1999), 5-6 for Prelim (born 1999/1998), and 6-7 for I and A (born 1998/1997). However, I will say that so far (and thus the reason we only have 1 YH award listed) there are no YH's at the Prelim thru Advanced levels. All horses so far are 4 and 5 year olds.

    Lindsey -- All Area VIII events are calculated to date EXCEPT Lost Hounds, Spring Run and Encore (yes Champagne Run IS in there). I have Pleasant Shade getting points from Mayfest only (winning the JOTA division, but because it was only a CT only getting half (3) points).

      thanks tle! Fun to read this and makes me remember how much fun I *was* having. I knew Stoney and MR would be chasing my tail and now they're getting ready to pass. Fun while it lasted.

        OK TLE,

        I did some figuring of point and can't figure out where I went wrong. Ours aren't matching up! <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

        No problem! I enjoy doing this and think my numbers are right, but happy to go over anything with ya.

        <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>For Pleasant Shade I have: 4 points for 2nd at River Glen, 3 points for 1st at Mayfest, 5 points for 2nd at Spring Run. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

        Mayfest I have (see previous post). River Glen is not in Area VIII and therefore not automatically counted. I need the division you competed in and (if possible) the number of starters -- I can get that inforamtion, but definitely need the division and the placing for out of ARea events. I have not received complete information for Spring Run so it is not counted yet.

        <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>For Alleged Account I have: 1 point for 6th at Pine Top, 5 points for 2nd at Mayfest, 4 points for 4th at MidSouth. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

        Again, Pine Top is not Area VIII and not automaticaly counted. I need placing, division, and if possible starters and I will add this in. I have the Mayfest and MidSouth points correct in the database.

        <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>For Anticipation I have: 2 points for 5th at Spring Run, 3 points for 5th at Champagne Run. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

        Spring run, as already mentioned, is not counted as I have not received complete info from them. I have the 3 points for C.R. in the database.

        <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>I was also 3rd at Pine Top on a horse named Sail On. There were 9 starters, so that would leave it as 3 points? <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

        It *would* but I need more info -- in this case, if I could get the division and the USEA # of the horse.

        <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>That, according to my calculations would leave me with 30 points! Where am I going wrong? <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

        Hope I answered all the "missing points" questions. Just keep in mind as the season goes on, that at BN-P levels for the Rider of the Year awards, only a max 50% of the total points can be calculated from outside area events (not that it looks like you have to worry... just thought I'd throw that out there).

        <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>Please, correct me where I am wrong! I'm very new to the whole point system. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

        No problem! Especially since we revamped the entire system this year! LOL I think you have a GREAT grasp of the calculations... I just need that extra info from you for the out of area events... and of course, the complete information from teh 3 events I don't have and I think we'd be on the same page.

            Thanks TLE.

            Ok, here is the information I have. For Pleasant Shade at River Glen, we were in Beginner Novice Junior. There were 10 starters, we placed 2nd. Hence, 4 points.

            At Pine Top, Alleged Account ran in Junior Training. There were 11 starters, he placed 6th, for 1 point.

            For Sail On at Pine Top, there were 8 starters in Junior Novice, were we finished 3rd for 1 point. His USEA # is 92197.

            Hopefully you'll get the Spring Run info soon.

              Maybe we could make the YH divisions through 7 years old in Prelim? I know quite a few 7 year olds running around the tracks, one of mine included!

                Good compared to day one, in fact vet is very happy. But if I were walking out to the barn and looked at him, I'd be appalled by how much fluid is still there.

                Not only did I hate missing CR, but I was *so* looking forward to Hunter's Run as I haven't been there. Guess maybe next year. I'm shooting for Richland if we keep up current progrss, though guess I won't try to move up yet. I figure I'll just keep entering and play it by ear. I do hate these 4:15 am mornings for the morning meds and walks. For some reason, wouldn't mind it so much if I was prepping for a one star.

                  How are points assigned?

                  How much does first place earn you?

                  I wonder if my one measly win at Spring Run will do anything??

                    The whole system is written out on the Area VIII website (www.usea8.org under Awards). Points are assigned based on placing and number of starters. Ie: 1st out of 12 starters will get you 6 points (and 6th place gets 1 point) but 1st out of 25 will get you 7 (and 7th will get 1 point). Less than 5 starters is 1/2 points. CTs are 1/2 points. 3-days are more.

                    Rider and Horse of the Year categories are calculated for any number of rides and levels. Divisional awards (ie: Jr BN or Open Training) only the best 6 placings of a horse-rider combination count. Riders MUST be USEA members and reside in Area VIII per USEA's database for Rider of the Year and Divisional awards. Horses must be registered and owned by an owner residing in Area VIII per USEA for any Horse of the Year awards.

                    That's the Cliff's notes version. If you have any specific questions, just ask.

                    Ann... glad to hear Deke is doing better. Good luck on getting to Richland. would have loved to see you guys at H.R.!

                      Yes, I have another question...

                      I just read this on the Area VIII Awards page:

                      "In addition 1 point will be given for completing a two-day or three-day event regardless of placing or division size, and an additional 1 point will be awarded for a clean cross country run (must complete the event)."

                      So if I earned 6 points for placing first in a field of 13, would I also get an additional 2 points??

                        Lindsey,

                        Got the information. Thanks! BTW, the run with Sail On -- 3rd place of 8 starters is 3 points, not 1. However, Sail On will not be listed in the Horse awards -- according to USEA, he's not owned by an Area VIII resident. You still get the points though for the other awards.

                        I won't be updating the overall listings until after Gemwood (too much work to do on a daily basis)... but your new points are in there.

                          BigMick, the extra points are for honest-to-God "3 day" three day or "2 day" two day events...NOT Horse Trials that take 3 or 2 days. As in CCI* or CIC*, etc. Don't I wish they gave points for clean XC trips alone!

                            I should start the "6 points and Holding Clique" In addition to a "Beginner Novice Forever Clique".

                                  slp2 -- You're not missing anything... it hasn't been posted yet (points that is... the rules, etc. are there). It is supposed to be on the website -- my guess is that they will post it under Awards, but that's only a guess.

                                  re: Extra points -- actually, the extra points wouldn't count for a CIC because that is simply an FEI-governed horse trial. CCIs yes... I don't know of any 2-day events still in existence (CDCTA perhaps?) but it was in the rulebook so I included it. Basically it was to give extra points to the extra efforts due to the extra phases before XC. I would also include CCIs without Steeplechase in that category (as if it wasn't confusing enough already -- sorry 'bout that!).

                                          Hi tle! I saw the leaderboard posted this weekend at Gemwood and noticed that I was listed in "open". As one of the founding members of the "Don't Quit Your Day Job" event team--I am most certainly an amateur!

                                          Anyway--whenever you are updating, please change me to amateur division. Or is there a "Is she STILL attempting to event?" division? If so, I belong in THAT! My name is Susan and my horse's name is Acapella. Thanks!
