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!

  • Area VIII Year End Awards -- Final Standings - p9

    Just an FYI... I just sent the current leaderboard standings to the Area chairman... they should be posted on the website soon. Points are as of today and include results from Spring Bay, Rolex, Winona, Mayfest and IEA. I know a couple people/horses names here so here's what I know so far:

    (deleted due to changes after receiving USEA membership & horse registration information -- see post at the end for updates)


    If ya'll have any questions, comments, suggestions or corrections... just holler. If you think you've gotten points and want to know where you stand, ask... I have the entire list.

    I just thought it would be fun to share.

        Hi Heather. Thanks... you were one (of MANY I'm sure) that I wasn't sure where to put you so you got put in the Open -- which means you won't show up on the lists in the correct place when they get uploaded to the Area VIII site. BUT... given that I now know your AA status (thank you)... you are officially in a tie for 8th on the AA ROY list (with 4 points). That also puts you just outside the top 20 on the Training list. congrats! and keep up the good work!!

        PS -- I'm officially soliciting award program sponsors!!! We've expanded the program a LOT this year and will need some help to give out the number of awards and ribbons that we want to -- afterall, we put so much into the sport we should get something back if possible, right?? If you'd like to sponsor a specific division or award, that's great...if you want to help out tremendously and just be a "general" award sponsor (with a monetary donation), that would be GREAT too!! Specific awards can include certain divisions or awards like AA Rider of the Year, Stallion/Gelding of the Year, etc.

        We're also starting to take nominations (must include a narrative on "Why") for Volunteer of the Year awards.

          That's great--thanks for the update TLE! Congrats to all of you that I know: Delta Wave (WOW!), Mickey 87, annikak AND those that I don't (but I will hopefully meet at future events)! I know I got a few points at Winona, but I got more this weekend at Encore. Maybe after those points are in, I'll be in the top 50? . . . Anyway--how do we officially register as an AA? Or do we just let you know?

            Wow! That's great news! I picked up 4pts at Derbyshire also, so that should help the cause. I have never been on the leaderboard before! Maybe the years of hard work is finally paying off!!

            As far as helping with awards...being that I am the typical poor horse person...I would be better able to help in some way than donate $$. Does Area 8 have their own awards dinner or is it part of the National Convention?

              Basically, yeah... just let me know. IF participation allows, BN-T will be split JR, Senior Ammy, and Open. P-A will be split by YR, Adult Ammy, and Open. The ROY awards will be split Jr/YR, AA and Open. Basically, if I don't know, you end up in Open.

              Mickey... there will be an Area meeting that will have the awards presentation as part of it. I'm hoping that by having a leaderboard AND having some new awards, we can generate more interest in attending. Last year was really bad... even with having it in conjunction with the Midsouth meeting (not one person outside organizers from MidSouth attended any of the Area meeting... it was really sad). I'm sure we'll need some help when it comes down to planning and holding the meeting!

                Oh and, ahem . . . I believe that I once indicated that I would be interested in helping sponsor an award. Could you let me know the cost involved with this? I haven't done anything like this before so I just have no idea if we are talking $40 or $400! Maybe Delta Wave and I can co-sponsor the Mare-of-the-Year award since we are both big fans of mares (especially our own!) Or did you "call" that award TLE?

                  Well, I've kind of "called" it so that at least I knew there would be one. But, if we all want to donate some $$ towards the award, I have no problem sharing sponsorship (with any extra going into a general sponsorship category). How does that sound? I haven't totally worked out the details on how much equals sponsorship yet. I can guarantee it won't be $400 though! I definitely won't turn that down though! I need to see what the price of ribbons are and a general idea of what we spent on the winners' awards last year. In my mind, as an initial GUESS, I was thinking somewhere between $50 and $100... but that's just a guess.

                    Maybe I could sponsor the "Appaloosa Gelding over 17" award!

                      Yeah, a "Master Horse" award would be great!

                      Count me in for some fundage, and maybe a piece o' tack as well. I don't care where it goes, just happy to see the area make something happen in this regard. With my 5-shows-a-year schedule I won't be on any leaderboards for long, but it's nice that the AA's are getting some props!

                          I will contribute fundage as well or tack/horse clothing type stuff (embroidered saddle pads/sheets are always great). I won't steal the mare award from you though. I'm sure there are plenty of others that need contribution. And nope--probably not going to be able to fork out $400! Of course--using the classic excuse of--if I didn't have a horse . . . I could contribute more.

                            Oh but remember, at least for the divisional awards, only the best 6 placings per pair count... so who knows.

                            As for a Master Horse Award... hmmm.... not sure about doing it this year, but if we were brainstorming, what kind of qualifications would it entail? Having a 17yo myself, this is an interesting idea. How would points be awarded? Are we talking basically a HOY award but with a minimum age requirement? Or the oldest horse to get points? Or what?

                              I think HOY with a minimum age requirement would be good. I know USEA has a Master Rider award. It is not given to oldest, just whomever meets a minimum age requirement with the most points.

                                Ah! I had indeed forgotten...and I was the one b*tching about that very thing when this was being discussed, IIRC! Now us "part timers" stand at least a chance of copping a year-end award, too!

                                I would be willing to sponsor (in addition to my existing "pledge") a small "novelty" award for "Master Horse/Mare"...perhaps a giant tub of some joint supplement or a year's supply of bute?! Seriously, though--something small and heartfelt for our much-adored "senior citizens", compliments of Gwennie and myself.

                                    TLE--thanks for the info!

                                    What are the points calculated on? In-Area events? It seems like I should MAYBE have horses in there, but I'm not sure...

                                        Hey guys. Sorry for the late reply... was out "sick" yesterday.

                                        Anyway, I'm in the process of running the master horse idea by the area chair. Let me see what she says about adding it this year... then we'll go from there. No guarantees, but personally I think it's a cute idea and now that I have the USEA information (yea!!!), it wouldn't be difficult to determine at all! What age limit are you guys thinking? 15? 17? 20?

                                        Alleged... points are only AUTOMATICALLY tabulated for in-Area events. BUT, depending on the level, you are more than welcome to submit scores from outside events as well (recognized only). I currently have no outside results... so everything is from Area VIII only (Rolex, Spring Bay, Winona, Mayfest, IEA and just adding Derbyshire to be specific). Other Area events will be added as results are recieved.

                                        Ann... now that you've stated your AA status, you'll be moved to the AA list on the Rider of the Year standings (Open is for pros and those who don't tell us they belong elsewhere) -- which puts you in 2nd for AA ROY.

                                        As mentioned, I just got the USEA membership and horse registration info for all of the Area. I'm working (in between work of course ) on a more current list due to membership requirements... so the posting to the website might be a few more days.
