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!

  • Rolex entries

    Just wondering when all the entries are typically in for Rolex - it seems to be a very short list right now - is there a closing date?

  • #2
    I wouldn't worry about the entries this year.

    In the coming couple weeks, the list will get much longer.

    The closing date is usually at the end of March, but I know Janie sometimes accepts late entries.

      Almost no US riders have entered yet (or have been posted on the site.) I expect many more (Many many) US riders on the list.


      • #4
        Can horse & rider qualify separately?


        • #5
          Buck davidson?

          Is he qualified? thought I'd see him entered.

            Bumping this up.

            Entries close Monday. Here's to hoping the office is very, very busy processing entries!

              I was just thinking about this too. I wonder why hardly any entries are listed from the USA. I think I counted 9?

                It's always this way. They don't update the website every time an entry comes in. Several days after closing they'll put up a bunch of names, and then it gets edited as horses are pulled.

                Fun to see so many new (to Rolex) names!


                • #9
                  I am always amazed...and a bit saddened really...when you compare this to Badminton where by this time in the application process that Badminton is FULL and many riders are balloted out where as rolex struggles to fill all of the available spots on offer. In a country this size one would think we would have far more horses and riders at this level. You can have badminton full...horses not accepted are re-routed to either Bramham or Punchestown (spring) or Luhmulen (summer) and then you still have 200 advanced horses running at Chatsworth in spring. Where are our our numbers here?


                  • #10
                    Snoopy, when it comes to that the US is realy an island, Badminton and so on can draw from all over Europe and geting there is nothing more than a couple of days on the road, especialy now with the Chunel.
                    This year will be a boom year for Rolex, because it is the test event for 2010.

                    That I have no use for them, does not mean, that I don't know them and don't know how to use them.

                      Actually the Germans are bringing 3 riders as of an e-mail I received from their coach, Christopher Bartle, two days ago. EEI is posting these entries as they get them, so as stated earlier I don't think anything is being "held" out right now, I think there are either many Americans waiting until the last minute to enter or we are just going to see fewer Americans ride this year at Rolex. I for one am very happy to see this many foreign riders come over and ride Rolex this year. I think we are all going to be in for a treat to see some of the best of the best in the WORLD here, not just in America.

                        The Fredericks

                        On Eventing Radio this week Lucinda and Clayton Fredericks had expressed a strong interest in coming to Kentucky with Headley Britannia and The Frog. Fingers crossed they still will : )

                          I am pretty sure he is planning on bringing Reggie (Balleynoe Castle RM) and Bobby (My Boy Bobby). At least thats what I heard from him.

                              Not going this year, but as I looked into the webcast I see that it is pay-per-view now. Kanga or anyone, how will that work? Will it work on a mac?

                                It will work on a MAC and the Rolex website will provide a link to Playon, where sign up will take place.

                                    I'm getting really excited about this year's Rolex just looking at all the great horses and riders who will be there from all over the world. There's an Australian and a South American even.

                                    I do have a question since I've just made out my ticket application. Is there any way on the website to find out if and which grandstand seats are still available?

                                        If you go to the online ticket sales you can pick your seats, you have to go through the page to purchase them and then a screen will pop up that shows where they've got you placed and give you the option to change it.
