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!

    What score did WFP and Seacookie get for dressage? I just watched James Alliston, and he ended up with a very bad dressage score indeed on Parker. 66+ PP.

          While I think it's in the best interest of the event/sport to give the benefit of the doubt and accommodate competitors as much as possible IF possible, my initial reaction to the news the Jennie Brannigan wasn't riding til tomorrow due to her horse slipping on the wet concrete was "is that legal?"

              Judges seem to be really, really tough. I thought Will Faudree rode a lovely test, and it didn't make my benchmark.

              I was wondering that about Cambalda as well.

                  It would be in the ground jury's discrection. Honestly, I'm sure she would rather ride today when it is quieter. She actually had quite a decent draw time.

                  I think with the vet's certification and the eyewitnesses to the fall.....if the schedule permits, they should let them.

                            Perhaps they didn't think it was quite forward enough, although it was a lovely test.

                              Thank you for saying this. I mentioned something about it on Twitter and got absolutely flamed for it! While I am happy for Jennie that she can continue on, I have a hard time believing that this would be allowed at any other competition. I've seen people eliminated for being 5 minutes late to their ride time!

                                Being late for your ride time and having your ride time revised due to unforeseen circumstances are two entirely different kettles of fish. Being late for your ride time holds up competition and gets things running behind. Prearranging a change of ride time should not affect the schedule adversely.

                                  But it's NOT any other competition- if I had worked as hard and spent as much as any of those riders to make it to the only 4* on the continent, I would be thrilled that the ground jury was understanding that "sh*t happens" and would be able to help me out. Jennie is a terrific rider and horsewoman, if her horse isn't fit to run, she won't run. But I say kudos to the ground jury for not squashing her chances before she's even started. It's not like there are 400 other ride times to work around, it was certainly not a huge inconvenience to have her ride tomorrow.

                                    I'm a hunter rider and I dunno nuffin' 'bout nuffin' when it comes to eventing, and I had the same question re. Cambalda. I think it is nice that she has that option but did question the legality.

                                      Yes you would. And I've seen riders put later in divisions or later in the day for lost shoes. One of our girls was allowed to go last in her division (was a large division) when we had a truck break down on the way to the event. We called the Secretary and they asked the ground jury and were able to make it work with their schedule. They will not for SURE be allowed to go later but you can always ask the ground jury. It happens ALL the time. but you can't just show up late and think you will get to go. But when something wrong happens....it is very posssible for riders to be allowed to go at a different time.

                                      I've also known them to put riders in different divisions on different days at HTs. Basically...this is NOT something unheard of...even at regular HTs. Just not something you want to happen at Rolex. Given the smaller entries at this 4* it is just something that is possible. But the added stress to having to do this...plus she will likely have to pass another jog by the vets....isn't something any rider at this level at an event like this wants to do. It isn't really even an "option"....more that they ground jury decided to give her the option. They could have also said no...and she would have had to WD or hope he wasn't so sore as to be rung out of the ring in dressage. My bet is that he wouldn't have been able to do dressage today at all and it is iffy if he will go tomorrow unless he ultrasounds clean (and you bet they will be doing that now) and he has some good body work done today and in the morning (there is a very good equine massage person there now).

                                        Agree--I have seen times/divisions adjusted for lost shoes, flat tires, etc. A couple of years ago my horse opened up a groundhog burrow and took a spill while circling the dressage arena and they let us reschedule for later so as to check him out.

                                        In general events seem to try to be accommodating when they can be. In some ways, it might be easier to do at a huge event like Rolex because there is only 1 division, and only 1 phase per day, so less juggling of rings, course changes, etc.
