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!

  • RFD TV: Lucinda Green Eventing Clinic

    I've been DVRing the RFD television program "Horse & Country TV" and last night's (1am) offering was a Lucinda Green clinic for lower-level eventers. Really good stuff.

    There've been a couple of other good eventing programs as well, including a goodly portion of the cross-country from the Houghton International. For those of you out there who get RFD TV as part of their basic cable/dish subscription, it's worth recording the show (or staying up to all hours and watching it ).

    ETA: here's the show's website http://www.horseandcountry.tv/horse

      Hee. It looks to me that RFD is re-broadcasting programs filmed in England. Don't know if there's more to come from Lucinda Green, but there was also, for example, a jumping clinic with Ludger Beerbaum and a dressage clinic with Ferdi Eilberg. As well as some additional... ah... random stuff.

      I'm betting the programs DO get repeated -- the Ferdi Eilberg one has come around again in less than a month. I don't think they're broadcast at "watchable" times, though, so your best bet is a VCR/DVR and just record everything.

        There is a programme called "Changing Reins" with Oliver Townend and Boyd Excell that is pretty good if you can watch online in the USA? I thoroughly enjoyed it; there were 2 episodes, Oliver attempting carriage driving, and Boyd attempting eventing (if I remember correctly, he got to ride Flint for a dressage session!). Well worth a watch.

          Bumping because the way my DVR is capturing the repeats, I'm betting the Lucinda Green clinic will be aired again soon.

            It is fun to watch she is so good!

              A definite must see for any aspiring, or lower level event riders. Although I've seen a couple of lower level dressage clinics on RFD, nothing until this on eventing. It was really funny to hear her tell a couple of people to either do it, or (basically) go home. Not her exact words but she berated them just enough to make them step up and everyone ended on a good note. Just like a Jimmy Wofford clinic I watched once where he told a group he could embarrass them over an 18" fence and by god he did!

                  That looks like it would be a "part 2" companion piece to the show I've already watched. Thanks!!!

                    I loved the facial expressions she made after somebody had an ugly ride. It was great!

                    I also like that she didn't mind the "overeager" bay running sideways and charging as long as they got the job done. It gives me hope for my pony!

                      Thanks for the heads up!

                      What are the names of the other shows mentioned?

                          There was so much to like -- am looking forward to watching Part 2 online. Have to say, though, if I was Morag? Don't think I'd be able to watch the show. Having Lucinda Green make faces about me more than once would probably make me give up riding and take up basketweaving.

                          The Lucinda Green clinic was shown under the umbrella show name of Horse & Country TV. You can go on the RFD website and see the schedule but, alas, you can't seem to find out what a given show's "topic" is.

                          All of the [B]Horse & Country TV[/B episodes seem to have originated in England/Great Britain and there's been everything from sports coverage of jumpers, to coverage of various equine events at some big fair (draft/wagon class and pony trap (?) racing, plus random "human interest" bits on craftsmen and a "children meet the hunt hounds" clip), to clinics from some BNR/Ts, including Lucinda Green.

                          And thanks for bringing that to my attention, too.

                            About 2 years ago there was program called CountryChannel.TV you could access on the web. I don't think it's in service any longer. They had a XC Lucinda Green Clinic that was completely different from the ones on Horse & Country TV.

                            Attached is a link to a 5 minute video clip from that show on YouTube called Lucinda Green - Cross Country Training. Enjoy.


                            P.S. Lucinda also does a monthly diary for Petplan that's a fun read too.

                              Thanks for posting this! I am going to watch her live in at GMHA in VT tomorrow.

                                I planned on going, but I like to be prepared. I survived a Jimmy Wofford clinic and I would go again in a second.

                                I can't wait to go to the Lucinda Green clinic and now am even more excited. Thanks for the good words. For anyone, it's at Win Green in the Spring, but I believe it's on 2 week days.

                                I just posted on the wrong Lucinda thread, but you get the idea.

                                  So, a combination of boredom at work (new job -- thank god -- where, unbelievably, no one CARES if you're watching/doing god knows what on your computer during your down time) + my horse (well, the horse I half-lease) coming up lame just prior to our (first and) last chance to attend an (unrecognized) HT (all earlier ones pre-empted by Lyme Disease (horse's, not mine)) + a newfound obsession with Lucinda Green has led me to identify more of her clinics that you can watch... ONLINE!


                                  (2 episodes here -- the first is the one broadcast on RFD TV)

                                  I also found another interesting site that seems to have LOTS of great stuff, across all disciplines. Plus stuff that would fit in the "around the farm" and other forums:


                                  To get to the Lucinda Green clinic, you need to go through a couple of steps

                                  * First, along the bottom of the screen, change the "channel" to "equestrian."
                                  * Then, look for the bar with the type "What's On/Videos/News"
                                  * Click on Videos.
                                  * Then, choose Eventing.
                                  * Then, scroll through the list to find the clinic. Which I haven't watched yet.

                                  Anyone else have recommendations on good things to read/watch?
