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!

        Im not sure of the results at this time. I do know there was alot of elim. in my dressage ring. I left yesterday afternoon. Everything was flooded including the stalls.
        I was elim. in dressage for a lameness that couldnt be found even after 30 mins of the vet prodding and poking, so I never went out XC.
        I know the weather was horrible and they kept changing xc days. Hopefully its better today and everyone stayed safe.

                  Interesting...I know someone else who had that happen this weekend. The horse was later checked by another vet who couldn't find a thing wrong. Did you lodge any sort of formal complaint?

                      Taco looked great on XC! A few time faults dropped them from 4th to 7th.

                      (Oh and Stacy, it wasn't Taco I was remembering it was Bob)

                      Lynn & Bonnie had a rough go this morning. I can't remember where they were after SJ (picked up rail(s) and time) but had 2 stops at the Teepee Log before retiring. I couldn't see from where I was, so I don't know much more than that.

                        tle - thank you for helping me to choose studs! My daughter was also very grateful because I showed up with the right things! She ended up 8th - not bad for her first HT since May Daze last year. Slow on XC, but she picked up the pace for stadium. She is ready for dressage boot camp (her trainer's prescription). Anyway, the weekend went in the right direction, with a very positive end. And, tle, you pronounced her name correctly (for which she is eternally grateful - her name is Rhona and it usually morphs into Rhonda, which she hates) .

                          Thanks, Pinkdiamondracing.
                          It was wonderful to finally meet you, too! I believe that Tess remembered you. She was definitely smooching up to you. She could not have been in better hands, when she was so sick.

                          Mariequi,
                          It was nice to put a face to your voice. I hope that your move back to Aiken is an easy one. Good luck on Dublin.

                          DW,
                          You have a lovely mare. Congrats on your stellar dressage ride. I am sorry that the rest of your weekend was a tough one.

                          Slp2,
                          I hope that you can find what is causing your horse to be lame and that it is fixable.

                          HER,
                          It was very nice to meet you and your DH. How was the footing for Prelim?

                          Finally, I got to meet a lot of COTH'ers at JumpStart. However, I still haven't met Cookie Pony and Taco. Good job for your first Training!
                          When in Doubt, let your horse do the Thinking!

                            I met so many great COTHs this weekend!
                            Congrats to CP and Taco, and Auburn and Tess!
                            I have to thank DW for her last minute loan of her pelham bit! We found our first half halt out on prelim xc today and were able to only get 18 time penalties (we had 40 last time!). It was a leap of faith to go out on xc with a new bit and two reins but my horse was super! He has gotten so great at answering every question out on course no matter how poorly I ride! With the half halt today I got way too close to a few jumps and he just packs me over and forgives me. Now I can gallop because I can trust the whoa. By the end of the course I barely needed the curb rein! So we finished 10th which is my first prelim ribbon! Yippee! I'm so excited about how far we've
                            come-he is my first eventer, and we have learned the levels together. My husband is kindly driving us home now-not too far to Ohio!
                            I can't wait to see everyone again soon!
                            Helen
                            5, 4, 3, 2, 1, GO - you're on course!

                              I went to the office and disagreed with the ruling but I didnt know what else to do. It took the vet 30 mins to decide which leg he thought it was and then kept changing his mind about it. That was after the jog in hand and the 20 min ride in the schooling arena.
                              I am taking him to Dr. Genovese tom. to see if he can find something because no one else can. Its very upsetting since I drove 6 hrs to get there and then when I got my dressage test the only movement that was scored was my centerline. I completed 4 more movements after that before she stopped me and nothing was written.
                              Now I wonder if I should even attempt to go to the team challenge. I already paid but hate to waste the gas and hotel just to get booted again for no reason.
                              Sorry for the vent. I hope everyone had a good time despite the weather.

                                I posted on the other thread--Bonnie skidded really badly in front of the A-frame/trakehner and got really rattled, so we called it a day. Up until that point, she was awesome--I have to be happy with a short, successful round today. I was 60/40 about not going, because the footing to me seemed very, very iffy at best (I'm a footing freak) but I decided to go as far as seemed do-able--in this case about 400 meters.

                                  Wow, I didn't realize it was a Cother than I was helping! I just needed something to do! LOL Glad your daughter liked the choices and super glad she had a good run.

                                  DW... would have loved to see you and Bonnie go but can definitely understand the decision to retire. Sounds like the appropriate one. I missed seeing your SJ round by 1 ride as I turned around to see the next horse going. :-( Not so funny, I did the same with Stacy's SJ ride.

                                    HER, I'm so glad the bit worked out! It was Gwen's bit, so maybe she was galloping alongside you today. I know if she got to choose where and what heaven was, it would be in Kentucky, doing Prelim XC in the mud.

                                      Such a great weekend and met some new COTHers (hi HER and olympicdreams!)-- but not Auburn!! How is this possible? We WILL meet someday!

                                      Taco was just fabulous. I was so proud just to be sitting on his back, let alone flying over those big (to me) fences with him.

                                      Reading this when I should be working so no more details right now, but I will say that I thought I heard my ears ringing while I was warming up for XC-- it was all the well-wishers here on the BB!
