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!

  • Amanda Bader May you Rest in Peace

    I've changed the title of the thread so it was easier to find for those who want to pay tribute/respects to Amanda.

    Oh, no. Jingles for whoever it is.
    I checked out the website and alot of the results are up. There seems to be a pretty high number of eliminations, retirements and withdrawals...and a MR..what is that? Mandatory retirement? Guess I need to go get the rule book out.

      I don't know what MR means either but I looked at that rider's xc time and that was around time frame. I have all my fingers crossed that everything is okay.

      There were a lot of eliminations in stadium on Friday morning. There were some hair raising rides then. Ralph Hill commented on how scary a lot of the prelim rides were. I walked the training course yesterday and witnessed some very good prelim x-c runs and some that made me very afraid. One girl about flipped her horse and I don't think she knew it. She just ran at the fences without any setup/preparation at all. The trainer I was walking with started yelling for a jump judge. I was hoping that rider made it safely around as she had a refusal at fence 9 and then was flung up the neck of her horse at fence 10 (almost coming off). The fence she about flipped her horse was 3 fences later. Trainer said she had no business out there at that level. It was very unsettling to me to watch that.

      It was my very first event as I'm a jumper rider. I was so impressed with how well organized it was considering there were over 500 horses entered. It was really refreshing to see and feel the camaraderie amongst everyone. So very different than at the shows I normally ride.

        MR=mandatory retirement.

        It means the horse fell in conjunction with a fence.

                        That is so sad. Among all the eliminations, retirements and withdrawals, I noticed one score with HC...anyone know what that is? It will save me going out to my truck to get my rulebook! I will be courious to know what the reasons are (if any) as to why so many incidents? Even the BN division had alot of issues it seems. It is too bad, because I know that the trials were heavily advertised all week in the Orlando Sentinel..I would hate to see new spectators get a bad impression. Guess I'm glad we stayed home afterall.

                          all in all it was not a great weekend for sure. there were a lot of riders and some not so pretty rides. the fall of horse and rider on sat. was very scary to see. seems that the horse just never left the ground and just flipped over onto his rider. not sure how the horse is. my prayers and thoughts are with amanda and her family. as for erik's horse, i was not out on c.c but heard it was a pretty bad deal, also my thoughts are with him and his wife sara. it seemed that the show was a bit unoriganized to me, as too stabling and ride times. but with 550 entries and 150 stalls i guess that was to be expected. we love competing there and hope everything works out for the next show i do agree with ralph, there were some really scary rides on c.c and in stadium. at all levels too. hope this coming weekend at rocking horse will hold better rides for all involved.

                            HC stands for "hors concours". It essentially means that the rider is competing but "off the record", if that makes any sense. The score will be listed on the horse's record but the ride cannot be placed, and cannot count as a qualifying score for anything.

                            A ride is usually HC if there is a conflict or interest; for example, if I really wanted to do a particular event to begin the season, but my trainer was the dressage judge or the TD (both are situations I've run into), I would go to the event but I would ride HC.

                            Mares are like neutrons. If there are too many in an area, you approach critical mass. And then there are explosions. Loud ones.

                              Out of respect for Amanda and her family, I think it would be best if people want to talk about all of the bad riding out on cross country yesterday, they start a new thread to talk about the Horse Trials/Riding in general.

                              This thread is about Amanda and her condition.

                                eks- i was not saying that amanda rode badly, i just commented on what someone else had said. i feel really bad for what happened to her. it is a very dangerous sport and we all know that. we all were just commenting on the show in general. but we will be glad to start another thread if i or anyone else have offened you or amanda in anyway.

                                    maxxtrot and everyone else, I know you aren't talking about Amanda when you are talking about the bad riding this weekend...but I guess I just think it should be not part of this thread. I guess I'm feeling especially emotional about this since I saw the accident happen. Prayers for Amanda and her family.
