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!

  • FEH/YEH in GA in September!!!

    Cedar Ridge Farm in Athens, Ga will be hosting an FEH/YEH test on Saturday, September 19th. Judge and details TBA, and will be posted on the Cedar Ridge website: http://www.cedar-ridge-farm.com/.

    Please PM with any additional questions. We are very excited to be offering these tests in the heart of Area III and would love the support to be able to continue to offer this experience for young horses and handlers alike!

    I hope you've got this advertised on the Area II website - seems like there are SO many folks in those states into breeding and developing sport horses for eventing. I can't wait to come watch and learn!

      I wish my filly was old enough to go... Next year she can do the yearling classes

      It is a great venue for one of these events!

        Oh no!!! I think I'm working that weekend!!!! Argh... I'll just have to try to do some switcheroos!

        Hopefully we can get Dewey going again and come play!!! FUN FUN FUN!!


        • #5
          Press Release for this

          Hopefully folks with young horses in this part of area 3 will get out and support it!


          • #6
            Holly, I think they scheduled one in GA just FOR you and Dewey! You'd better go!

              I know...right!!

              But... alas, Dewey has to MAKE it to then... He was acting colicky again tonight. Argh... But hopefully it was just gas. In about 15 minutes he was acting fine again. But I'm at work.... thinking the worst. The hubby hasn't called yet though, so hopefully it's good news

              I'm trying to get off work and bring him, but..technically he's not allowed to "work" until october 2nd, so....that might be cheating a bit Hee hee... Though I'm pretty sure by "work" they mean under saddle, so I can't imagine that a little trot and walk on a triangle will cause major issues. We're working on it already some


              • #8
                Oh, you are going. You're going to do everything you can to shuffle your schedule. I can tell! Make sure there are LOTS of pics! Or heck... Athens isnt that far... maybe I'll come see y'all trot your little triangle!

                  Oh... there WILL be plenty of pics I'm pretty sure I can swap one day around.... I've already put out feelers

                  And today... this morning... Dewey and I did a tiny bit of trot in hand. Trying to keep it little for now since technically he is still recovering. But... we'll see.

                  Though I had to laugh my butt off this am.... He is A MESS!!!!!!!! He has wet feed all over his face cause I still feed him soup, he's got scars all over him from Roany and Fleck chewing on him, he's got ointment cream smeared on his forehead from me trying to doctor the wounds and worst of all... he's covered in white paint!!! The fence is white pipe metal and he sticks his head through so the white paint powders off on him. With the rain, it was worse I guess, cause he just looked ridiculous this am. I can't imagine showing him with the way he was looking now. Jeesh!!! Thank goodness they stress that it's NOT a beauty contest! He is such a ragamuffin right now!

                  If I can just get him to heal up and not get any new scars and give him a bath and braid his mane... I think we might be okay. But this morning I was laughing at him!

                  And yes.. do come visit!!!!

                        And NEXT year, we WILL get to see the darling Ms Scrabble make her debut...I am making the announcement without one SHRED of reason to be able to do so other than that she IS a fine FUTURE EVENT HORSE and loves herself so needs an audience to appreciate her loveliness and "athletic" antics, is a tribute to her cute, fun, talented Mommy, and OMG handsome talented eventing daddy....

                          Ha Ha! Scrabble does love herself! I have to watch her to make sure she doesn't drown in mud puddles staring at herself : One of the reasons I really want the FEH/YEH to go well this year- then Cedar Ridge might hold another in the spring that Scrabble could go to.... Very self serving


                          • #14
                            That's hilarious!! Scrabble stares at herself in mud puddles... Dewey, on the other hand, WALLOWS in them!!! He is one giant mud puppy right now!! Poor kid!

                            Yep, hopefully they'll have another one so Dewey can debut too!! I'm sad that not only can I not go, but I also can't help!


                            • #15
                              Will there be a pro handler there?? I'm going to give it a go on my own in FL at the end of the month but I'm getting fatter every day and by that time, I may not be able to keep up with Libby....

                                There will not be a handler on site, but I am sure someone would be willing to handle your youngster for you. I will have a 4 y.o. there for the YEH, and am far from a "professional" handler, but I'd be happy to present your young one for you in order to help facilitate entries .

                                  Hey all... There are very few entries for the YEH classes, PLEASE, if you have a youngster come out and support this event. It is VERY low key and designed for youngsters who aren't necessarily ready to go to their first horse trial. There are super sponsors and great prizes at a fantastic facility! Please PM with questions, and PLEASE support this opportunity if possible in order to facilitate more YEH tests in Area III.

                                    Trakeventer- Have you advertised in the AREA III web site and sent your info to the major eventing barns such as Pine Top and Poplar Place? I'm mentioning those 2 farms because I know the Wilson's have young horses and the Stegmans too.

                                      It is on the Area III website, got sent to the Area III AR, and is on the USEA website as well. I think we're down to word of mouth now as many have not experienced the low-key and fun format provided by the YEH. If you have any additional ideas, please feel free to email the farms directly/PM me contact info, and I will do my darndest to get the word out. TIA!
