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!

  • Plantation jumper derby?

    Does anyone have information on this? I'm pretty sure it's on July 17 but that's all (I think) I know! Plantation's web page doesn't come up right on my phone so I don't know if it's there.

    Thanks!!

    You made me go look it up!

    Tue, July 17
    Elementary through Prelim
    $60 for first round
    $40 for second round

    I have not decided if I want to do it or not, will probably depend on finances and the fact that I am leaving for a 10 day class on the 18th. I am thinking you can pay up to that day, since I do not see a closing date.

      Do you pre-enter?

      You better not go, you might fall off during the course after you've jumped. Lol

        I don't think that you have to pre-enter. Kate and Erin will also have details up on their web site.

        It is a fundraiser to get the both to Burghley as well as raising funds for the large event in the fall at Plantation. What is nice is you can do two levels or repeat a course. Nice schooling opportunity!

        Fingers crossed the weather will be good. I think we are starting at 2 but I will get back to here on the schedule.

            I'm checking.

            More details on http://plantationfieldhorsetrials.com/cms2/

            but not times yet. I'm pretty sure it is starting at 2pm but want to confirm.

              Oh, your a funny girl! I will have you know, we did the entire cross country course after the last show, and went to Joe's, and have not fallen off yet! Of course, we haven't attempted a 2-stride again....

                Looks like we are starting at 1:30pm with Elementary....about 1 hour each division.

                  Do we know how the format will work? I assume Stadium and Xc fences mixed and in and out of the "ring" but I was curious how extensively the xc course would be used. Would the water, ditches, banks etc be in this exercise or not?

                  (That would make a difference in which level I enter ;-) )

                  Thanks in advance.

                    $60 a class is a bit steep... even though I strongly support the cause!

                      Officially, "Water and XC fences will be used in all levels," is what I've been told.

                        It is my understanding that they will be jumping in the center field where the first CIC show jumped, which puts you in the center of the cross country course.

                          We based the price on what was done for similar derbies. But unlike an event...you can go at two levels or have two rounds at a pretty affordable price.

                            Sounds like a lot of fun. I see they have the 12th noted on the entry form, but does anyone know if we could still just show up on the day?

                              yes-- I'll confirm it with those in charge but last I heard we were not really scheduling times--so it will run a bit more like a schooling jumper show. I think that if you don't enter by the 12th, you will just have to enter on the day of. Just if you enter ahead of time, you will be sure to get in on the off chance that we get too many people....

                                yes I confirmed that you will still be able to just sign up the day at the event. Divisions will run about 1 hour each and we will hopefully have some time at the end of the day for more schooling (i.e. you will be able to run another course just no ribbon).

                                All courses will have water but it will be an option for elem. Only Prelim has a ditch I believe...and a few of the levels will also use the bank.

                                But remember this is a fundraiser and schooling event so if you want to go around a fence....that's fine, your are not going to get pulled off the course--just will be out of the ribbons. If you miss your division--you may also be able to school, we will be flexible within reason.

                                Bit of Britain has donated some goods so we should have prizes too! It should be a fun fun event!

                                      I'll be there with my greenbean too. Would rather just have Kate ride her but I think she may be too busy
