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!

    I thought this would be the case at Catalpa last year but unfortunately it was a bit stiff even in early May. Any insight is much appreciated!
    I believe it is intended to be a friendly course with IEA to be tougher.

      And while it's a distance away, and probably a different customer base, can't make Jackie very happy.

      Overall, not a move I like personally. IMO.

      At least two holes in the Area VIII August/September schedule now. Anyone care to step up to the plate? Can't hit a home run without swinging the bat.
      I agree, but Kate is entitled to give it a go if she thinks it will work better for her than August. I foresee that we will be doing footing repair (in addition to our regular aero-vating) prior to IEA.

        Is Gemwood gone for good? Anyone know why? A shame with new water and bank.

          Oh no, I just noticed that Gemwood was missing too! Darn it! We love that event, and Greater Dayton too - it's such a nice close location for us! drat.

                  I think she means Mini Trial (MHT) The Fleur de Lis Mini trial series has Spring Run Mini Trial scheduled for June 9 Spring Run Horse Trial is June 7-9. Perhaps they are running them in conjunction, or maybe a typo?

                    SLR - Where did you find the date for this year's Spring Run MHT? I checked the 42 Fleur de Lis website a few days ago to see if a schedule was up yet so I can plan those shows in between the recognized events for the season, but didn't see any updated info on the 2013 series. Do you know any of the dates for the other farms?
                    I have Higher Standards... do you?

                        Susan said she was seriously thinking of changing Spring Run to a schooling show. I'm sad to lose this fixture in the Area VIII calendar even though I haven't been able to attend SRHT since the 80's & early 90's due to my schedule conflicts. I wish Spring Run the absolute best of luck in their new direction.

                          Ah! Thank you so much! Not sure how I missed that...

                          Immediately marking my calendar - I just found out about this series last year and love it. I'll only be able to take my boy to one (FCF Big Mini) since he'll be going Training this year (unless this new development for SR means that mini will also offer Training this year?). Might be taking little sister to a few though since she'll be doing BN/N this year.

                            Yes, Mini Horse Trial. SORRY! Susan confirmed for me a couple of days ago that she is indeed doing a MHT in lieu of her reg. HT. I was confused too bc omnibus still has it listed as HT.

                            From Susan, "Hi Amy, Spring Run us not doing the USEA event. On June 9th is our Big Mini Trial!!"

                            We love our 42 Fleur De Lis series! Hope to see everyone there! Sorry for the delay in posting our new dates! Allot of new fences this year too! And we usually offer Dressage Ride-A-Tests too. We all love putting on the shows!

                              Greater Dayton is still running in May and will of course be using the new bank and water. Gemwood isn't running this year for a variety of reasons. I won't say it's gone for good but nothing is set in stone either. The summer event has been struggling for a few years (and getting harder and harder to put together) so who knows.

                              Thanks for posting the Fleur de Lis info! May look at trying to go to one or more as I have friends in the Louisville area that I can crash with. Unfortunately, I will probably be going by myself as EVERY show in the series is on a Sunday (some folks don't like Sunday shows). I never did make it to Spring Run but always heard great things about it. I was mildly concerned about running a CT (at Twin Towers... along with a DLSC dressage show and some jumper classes) that same weekend but I guess things work out for a reason. And since I mentioned it, we're also running a CT the weekend before MidSouth in October -- and will hopefully be having a CCI* division just for anyone who wants to prep.

                              It really is interesting what's happening to the area calendar recently.

                                I know I'm dense, but I don't understand what you mean. Someone is running a CT at Twin Towers and a DLSC dressage show with jumper classes? What weekend?
                                And who is running a CCI* CT ? Where? TIA

                                  Do you mean a CT using the CCI* dressage test and an up-to-standard SJ course? Or a CIC*?

                                    I assume she means CCI* since that's what they run at Midsouth. I'm also assuming its the FEI dressage test and SJ heights.

                                      Maybe Gryhrs can change the title to" Area 8 2013 Schedule & Changes". This is turning into a place to highlight some of these changes and the smaller (more like affordable vs smaller) unrecognized shows that are being planned. Keep up the good work, nice for all of us to have some new places to go, new people to meet.

                                          Also, I think the Fleur de lis series has put their 2013 dates up since Monday, because I could SWEAR those were last years dates when I checked!!
