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!

  • Jumpstart Training helmet cam

    Well.... Got off to a slow start in dressage, I was genuinely concerned about the beast staying in the arena. Very uncharacteristically, eh.. "fizzy". Anyway, I was dead last after dressage. It was the kind of test Sally O'Connor would have said, "Oh Dear, these are the kind of tests you just want to get through and finish."
    Cross Country was great! Nice course, we shared a few prelim fences. In fact, I decided to jump one instead of my training fence. The brush out at the half coffin 13b. It rode beautifully and I got a TE. Good news? XC was great and I get to ride stadium tomorrow, and I got to say hello again to deltawave! Gotta love it. http://youtu.be/zyfi1OcJtDI

    I saw you had a TE and was very concerned! Glad to hear you just had a little too much fun out there :-)

      Does this mean the P move-up is a go?

      I am green with envy, as I'm back down to BN with my big bay gelding (sold my T horse a few months ago!).

        Thanks for posting--I always enjoy your helmetcams! Never gets old! I was walking my course today and I saw the last portion of your ride--you both looked great. Then I was so bummed when I heard the announcer say you were "E'd" for missing the 13b. At least it didn't happen at an event where you had your best_EVER dressage test!! That's usually when I end up with a letter instead of a score.

          Gah, sorry about the TE. Times like that I wish I had a "do over" button! But you guys rocked that course. I love your xc rides, you could set a metronome to your pace and you always give him such a great balanced approach to the combos.

          Fernhill Jayce sure was digging that Prelim fence .....

            It was very nice of the TD to let you finish your cross country ride.

            Everytime that I have jumped a Novice fence (or a Training fence at Stone Gate ), instead of my BN fence, the TD has stopped me a couple of fences after my mistake. Actually, the TD and JFS did let me finish my ride at Stone Gate. Jackie said, "If she can jump a Training jump, then she can finish the rest of the course." It was the only time that I have gotten a TE and was allowed to finish.

            Thanks for sharing your ride! I think that Jaycee must have thought that you were running Prelim. At the beginning, he certainly was making Prelim time.

            Great job, as always!

              You guys flow XC. Well done! I agree, better to be TE'd when your dressage is...not your best. I can't wait for the Prelim cam!

                Thanks. Yes, usually those kind of booboos happen when you're in the top three. I think the plan for prelim was a bit premature. When it got closer and I realized I would actually have to do it, the holes in my program made it seem unwise. Gotta have a goal though!

                  Well, you're a really,really good rider so I'm quite sure when you guys make the move you will kick some Prelim bootie

                    Thanks Acme, If I could ride as well as you do at Prelim, I'd be happy. When is your next prelim helmet cam coming?

                      Pine Top, 2 weeks! Hopefully no mechanical issues this time.

                          Sloryder,

                          Yes. I got the TE for jumping a Training fence on Jackie Smith's course at Stone Gate in Hanoverton, OH.

                          I remember thinking, "Gee. That flower, mulch table surely rode bigger, than it walked."

                          Riderboy,

                          You did not blink an eye at jumping that offset, Prelim, skinny brush after the ditch. It was as smooth as butter! You have an excellent trainer and the best ground person (Gryhrs) to help you fix the holes.

                          How did SJ go?

                            No, I was at that trial too. I actually take lessons with Jackie. I to got TE on my XC i jumped the wrong fence So don't feel alone. I'm not trying to call you out I promise. Its just really cool meeting other eventers in my area.

                              Two rails in SJ. Actually had a couple of decent, feels just right fences, I think that's never going to be my strong phase. Seemed like lots of rails in Training and Prelim, at least the ones I watched. I locked on to that Prelim brush a long way out, didn't even think about it. My boy was sooo good. Prelim is still prelim, and I don't want to spend the winter re-building his and my confidence from a too soon move-up. But boy, that XC looked fun.
