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!

    Anyone know how the jog is going?

  • #2
    no and i have been trying to find ride times - anyone know??


    • Original Poster

      Unofficial ride times are now up on the website. I assume anyone listed passed the jog? Very bizarre that none of the eventing media sites have any jog reports/photos. Is anyone from USEA/EN/Chronicle there this weekend?


      • #4
        its up on EN now........all 3* passed, 4 in the 2* didnt make it.

            I thought he was just ever so slightly off, and she withdrew him in the hold. I have a ton of jog photos but they are going to be on Horse Junkies United tomorrow, they have first pick.
            I will post some that have been requested on my facebook page.
            Tomorrow the two star starts at 9:15 (test ride at 8:55), then the second half of the two star after 1-36 lst day, rest 2nd day plus three star on Friday. Then XC 9am start Saturday --- that is as of now.
            Young Event horse starts with 5yo Thurs am followed by 4yo in afternoon. The young horses jump Friday.

              Some great fall jog outfits--and some REALLY bad ones! Hannah Sue looked super in her plaid skirt and tall boots. Holly Payne looked incredible as usual. And I won't name names, but please, your red bra should never show through a black dress. Soooooo tacky!

                      I loved Hannah's outfit too! Here's a photo: http://www.useventing.com/sites/defa...0111018-15.jpg

                      I want to know who the red bra culprit was!!

                        I loved Clark's tan and brown with his chestnut.

                        Lauren Keiffer was beautiful. Lainey was stunning as well, and Jan Byyny looked cute in her skirt too. Very elegant mentions I think to Kristen Schmolze, Leslie Law, (I heard he had his fancy cufflinks on but I looked on my photo and they aren't showing). Loved the popping color on the younger riders and understated elegance on the "more experienced"!

                        You know, the very prettiest pairs had GLOWING horses and big smiles just to BE THERE and in the end, that is the most important "way to dress".

                        Some horses were not glowing and shiny -- to me that is much more concerning, considering they are about to tackle the 2nd biggest test in eventing in the Northern Hemisphere -- than what color someone's underwear is.

                          Good point retread! The horse's turnout is the most important. The rider's turnout should not detract from it.

                          Said photo is #14 on the USEA website photos http://www.useventing.com/news/fair-...nal-ccicci-jog

                          Apparently the photographer was distracted, because only the horse's head made it into the shot!


                          • #14
                            Oh geez. That red bra is unfortunate. And yet, why am I not surprised?


                            • #15
                              OMG RED BRA! I wouldn't have even looked at that photo had you guys not mentioned it but now that I did... OMG!


                              • #16
                                Yeah, a bit tacky.

                                However, I had to giggle at Buck's red/white socks. LOL Cute!

                                  I do have to say, Marilyn is simply stunning. There was another photo from farther away I saw and she looked gorgeous. Us flat chested girls be jealous!

                                      What's with the evententries scoring format? Not the usual one.

                                        I love how some look like they're headed off to the club after the jog.
