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!

    Pleased for HSB indeed! That should set her up well over the next few days. I wonder how ML's shoulder is doing, as it hasn't been that long since her fall for such a serious injury. Tomorrow should be interesting complete with more Andrew Nicholson on Viscount George who he won a 3* at Chatsworth with a couple of weeks ago. Actually I had a bit of a look to see who was whohttp://outsidethehorsebox.com/whos-l...ood-for-saumur. Some of the Brits look good, as well as AN, of course, and HSB and ML. I hope there are videos of cross country. I think last year or maybe the year before there was even streaming of XC.

    That will take some riding! But I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be a bunch of grapes like from a vineyard. I agree though, they look more like blueberries than grapes!

          The dressage scores so far are not good. I expect we'll see some nice ones tomorrow with AN and Nicholas Touzaint. And Buck Davidson and Will Faudree.

            I am not that well versed in international events, I assume this is in France?
            SCARY looking jumps! Cross country will be very exciting.
            Is there any place to watch on line?

              Yup! South-west of Paris. Here's the website http://www.saumur.org/cci/accueil-gb.html. This website http://www.equidiawatch.fr had streaming a few years ago, but as I don't speak French I can't quite work out if it's going to be on this year.

                Correct link for live streaming

                Got the correct address for live streaming. It's http://live.datanaute.com/saumur-2013/ and starts for the 3-star XC tomorrow afternoon French time. There is also a link off of the main Saumur 3-star page.

                    I love how they have their website set up for results. Click on the rider's name and the horse's breeding comes up. There are no German riders at Saumur. That may well be why there are only 4 riders with dressage scores over 69%. Or it might just be a tough Ground Jury.

                      They didn't looked dressed yet in the pictures....always makes them look a bit more scary. Hardest thing to get a feel for is the ground....any one know how it is there?

                          Best to all the US riders tomorrow! Go Team USA!

                              I hope the horses see the "vine" (rail) above the grapes! I'm worried about horse falls with the grapes so much brighter.

                                Bill Levett is one of the riders that contributes his blog to my site. His first Saumur update just said the ground would be fine as long as they didn't get a lot more rain. http://outsidethehorsebox.com/saumur...mmys-dressage/.

                                  Wonderful live video, I have been watching from the start. Great rides, only a couple of stops. Hanna Sue had one, and was over the time, Lots of frenchmen.
                                  Andrew .. Great ride, Marilyn had an awesome clear round, LOVE smoke on the water!

                                    Buck eliminated at a corner. Jumped, but it was determined most of his horse was outside the flag. The review confirmed he took the flag down and his horse's head was to the outside of the flag, forcing it to fall over the fence. He kept going until he was stopped a few fences later. Too bad.

                                      really suprised Buck did not realize he did not clear it or that it might be a question- on the video it does not look like even a close call that that flag was never on the correct side of the horse
                                      Must not have felt like it looks
                                      There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.(Churchill)

                                        I'd love to see head on footage because I agree....did not remotely look like a close call. He appeared very off to the left and horse didn't even really jump.
