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!

      Aw crap I didnt realize that Waredaca is the Novice championship. Aw crap, well it is our move up. Apparently I am not long for this world so it has been nice knowing all of you.

      Well if someone sees a dark bay, with a little white star, coming running back riderless that would be us. If I don't make it I would like to put down in writing that Dr. D gets my boy and my hubby will have to continue to suffer with my old one.

        Usually the championship course is different from the regular course.

            they are also having non-ch divisions and I doubt they are having separate courses for both novices. they may have a question or two different if they do. in the past years the area champs is no different than the horse trial courses you ride all year. now the AEC was a different matter.

                Last year, the Tr championship course had about 6 fences different from the non-championship course.

                      I'll be there in NR trying not to get eliminated again at the water.

                      What is the Novice water like? Ty wanted no part of the BN water in June . We are going to Gordonsdale today to work on our issues with the wet stuff.

                        Courses are shaping up!!! Of course, boarding there turns out not to be as helpful as you'd think in the run-up to the event. Mostly, this is what happens...

                        1. (horse) OHMYGOD WHATISTHAT ITWASNT THERE YESTERDAY AIAEIEIEIEI.
                        (instilling great confidence in me as he scoots away from the new portable in his own field)

                        2.(me) OHMYGOD WHATISTHAT THATCANTBETRAINING EIEIEIEIE.
                        (usually, the offending object turns out to be on the Intermediate course, but I will have worked myself into a frenzy about it for 3 days before figuring that out).

                        What I CAN tell you so far...
                        Waters -- the water will be similar to what you saw at BN last time, but with either a bank after or a log just before (or possibly both -- it's very hard to tell right now as they are still moving things around and there are so many courses/options being built).

                        And...I just discovered this weekend that there are 2 new trakheners on course! They must have built them in the middle of the night, but there they are. Novice and Training -- both good sized and airy for the level, with real (but small) ditches, plain earth (that is, not lined with wood, more scooped out of the ground, with a ground line on the front edge). Approaches are on rising ground, jumps themselves are on level ground.

                        The bullfinch from last year's T3d has reappeared, but it is attached to the perpendicular face of the bank/drop complex -- that is, if last year you jumped up, across, and down over the bullfinch, this year you come up the ramp at right angles to that line, and then off and down the bullfinch. The drop itself is therefore bigger, but there is no preceding bank up.
                        Too soon to tell whether this will be packaged as an option for regular T, or what (depending on the rest of the track, you could possibly offer up-across-down vs. ramp up/offbullfinch).

                        More tonight after I ride!

                          Ok I know this will sound odd but YEAH for the N and T trakheners! They are popping up at shows all over this area so as a Waredaca boarder I love the addition! Great for schooling after the events!

                          And they are running different courses for N and N Champ though they will share several fences and run along the same track. Obviously the Champ course will be more difficult with an option or two and more combinations.

                          I love this time of year when everything is getting set up!

                          Now if we only had enough volunteers for Sat.... hint hint.

                              There was a Trakehner on last fall's Tr Ch course. But you are saying New ones?

                                Sounds like a challenging course, well over my head. I'll be grooming for my trainer and the rest of the folks from my barn. Will be taking pictures when I'm not tacking and untacking horses. Hope to see as many of you as I can while there.

                                  BTW, I thought the T3DE and the championship shared the same XC course. I don't recall a true trakenher last year on the t3de course.

                                    Nope, not quite the same course. The Trakehner we jumped on the Training Championship course last fall was on the Prelim course this spring. Regular Training (I don't know about the TDE since the flags were down by then) just jumped the ditch.

                                      gordonsdale water is pretty typical of what is out there, but i would also suggest doing frying pan park and elysian hills so you get a chance to school some more trappy or enveloped type waters. the same i suggest for trakehners.

                                      i love when novice & training have options and combinations. the august horse trial at waredaca was pretty straight forward. i think the big issue then was the 'new' drop built like an irish bank on top of the groundline of the terrain.

                                        Do they use that trakhener to the left that is down in a natural valley next to the ditch for the T3D?I thought that was an intermediate or prelim trakhener? Where are the new trakheners situated?
