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!

  • Hagyard MidSouth Team Challenge Times are up!

    Hope to see lots of people there supporting one of the few traditional 3-day events! It kind of reminds me when they came out with "New Coke". When the novelty wore of, Coke Classic came out and "New Coke" slowly disappeared! OK, I know, I am dreaming, but what harm?

    come say "hello"!

    I'll be announcing SJ on Saturday and XC on Sunday

        I am going Novice on the team WBF Paint It Gray because we have two of each color! Our team was originally Sonny and Three Gray Chers (my horse's name is Sonny FYI) which I thought was hilarious, but then that team fell apart. I love Paint It Gray too though .

        I hope we have some better brakes than Middle TN, and the awesome quality of our jumping at home WILL show up this time! We have been schooling Training really, really nicely and his dressage has been very steady and nice! I am excited.

          I was there spectating with a friend from work and am in the process of uploading some pictures that I took of Stadium and some from the Novice XC.

          It was awesome just to watch, I wish I would have been able to stay and watch the rest of SJ!

                Glad to see the CCI* without division was completely unpopular.

                    How did the CCI* end up?? Why no results?

                    Me too DW! I was happy that there seemed to be quite a lot of people entered in the long format. It's too good to be missed.

                        not too bad

                        Max was not himself for the dressage, very reactive and tight. we only got a 37.5. He jumped double clear in show jumping and xc. He kept switching leads behind so I had him checked out. Turns out he has a kidney infection! Poor guy. So, he did very well considering. We finished in 8th out of a large class. The show was awesome. Very well run and challenging. The weather could not have been better. From what I saw, the cci classes were very tough. I did see a lot of scary show jumping in the prelim divisions too - riders racing around and pushing their horses way too fast, crashing thru poles...

                        I am giving my guy a some well deserved time off.

                          I know that Dorothy Crowell came in 2nd on one of her one star rides. I believe it was Hondo.

                          Dorothy was on my BN Team, along with two nice girls, Hannah and Amy. At the awards presentation, our team was awarded 7th place. Apparently, something got mixed up, so every BN team had to take their ribbons back to the office. Team "Eagle Eyes" actually ended up in 4th place.

                          Our team was the first to go cross country at 8am on Sunday morning. It was 38 degrees. The jumps and the ground had frost on them! Can you say, "Slippery"? Since over two thirds of the jumps on course were jumping down hill, I rode conservatively and got 3.6 time penalties, with no jump faults. The water complex looked very spooky, because of the fog condensing out of the warmer water. Tess was a good girl and cantered right through it.

                          Tess had a double clear show jumping round. For the HT placing we were 5th with 39.1 penalty points. Congrats to Jyl La Vera and her team for winning the BN Team Challenge. I believe that all of them finished on their dressage scores. Great job!

                              Auburn, you looked like you were having fun!

                              And it was amusing to watch Paleface go around Novice - "why are we jumping these little things? Didn't I jump the BIG THINGS here 6 months ago? "

                                  So I take it they sold Paleface? To someone who is going around Novice? That is so adorable, they must make quite a pair! Anyone have an update on this horse?

                                    The girl was riding with Ian Roberts' team, so I'm not sure who owns the horse. But it was just great to watch him go around SJ and XC, and then walking on the buckle/trotting on the buckle afterwards.

                                      Does anyone know what "RF" means in the placings? My friend had a decent dressage score and then RF for xc.
