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!

      seems a little random to me but hopefully they have info I don't and the absence of certain horses and people or their placement on the a versus b list is not as random as I think

              I just don't think that's accurate, Starboard. I don't think there are a lot of names missing here that I would have expected to see given competition records, injury, etc.

              I think it's pretty hard not to say someone like Will Coleman isn't the future of our sport. He had a spectacular season and is a great rider, Twizzel is an amazing horse, and he's got other nice horses waiting in the wings ready to move up. I couldn't be more pleased to see his name on the list. Similarly, Jan Bynny's Syd Kent is a gorgeous young horse with a huge future ahead of him - anyone who saw that horse jump this fall was legitimately blown away. Very, very talented. Jen Wooten's a bright young rider, with a game mare who had a breakout year. Amy had a fabulous year with two different young up and coming horses: I don't know how you could legitimately not put a rider who won both the spring and the fall three stars on two different horses on the list. And Destination Known had a very consistent year with high placings at both spring and fall three stars - great to see Allison have two super horses going so well at this level.

              Look at the number of fairly young horses as well, and horses without a ton of heavy mileage. Many of these are horses who will be at their prime for WEG in two years, or London in four.

              All in all, it's not an unreasonable list, and there's a nice new crop of horses on it that I'm really excited to watch grow and develop.

                Irish Sport Horses are also well represented!

                  Exactly my point. Why is Syd Kent on the B list, and why are some super ** horses (including Will's top ten finishers at Fair Hill) left off. Not sure we can create the depth we need for 2010, but if we don't look below the *** and **** surface, we will be sure to miss the boat in London as well. And where in my post did you read that Amy's horses should not be included?

                      What about them? They're both on the lists.

                        Let's not start the squabbling, Children. Instead, how about telling me if, when and where these riders will be training in Aiken this winter?

                          Ok so they released the Winter Training Lists but they have yet to release the Developing Riders List. I would be willing to bet that most of the horse/riders ya'll feel were left off will show up on the Developing Riders List.

                          As someone who has been on the DRL, we were treated the same as those on the WTL riders (this was when it was all held at Longwood in Ocala).

                              That is THE most stupid excuse for an "A" and "B" List I have ever seen!!

                              Give me a break!!

                              It is same old same old.

                              The only one on there who is an up and comer is Will Coleman!!

                              Corinne Ashton, Jennifer Wooten, and Buck Davidson should all be on the "A" list.

                              And, IMO, I think a few YR's like Jennie Brannigan should be on the "B" list.

                              And, last I checked, Clark had more than 1 Advanced horse, so he should be on there. Along with Bonnie. Now, I do not know the status of soundness etc. but you can't tell me all of these horses that aren't on the list and should be aren't sound.

                              And the stupidity goes on .........

                                What more does Jennifer Wooten have to do to get on the A list?

                                Really. She was 7th at Rolex and totally rocked at the Olympic selection pageant.

                                      Totally biased here, but the same goes for Missy Ransehousen. Third at Rolex on a horse who show jumps beautifully. I guess turning down the Olympic selection trials b/c you already are fully committed to coaching the Paralympic team made her not enough of a team player?

                                        I really don't know enough about folks to comment about who should/shouldn't be on the list. But I'm SOOOO impressed with Will Coleman. I heard a podcast w/ him last year (when Tack of the Day was doing them--I MISS them!), and I was impressed as heck with his background and dedication. Plus, every picture I've EVER seen of him, his legs are tight as a tick. I would say he really is (part of) the future of our sport. He's a superb horseman.
