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!

    It would be nice if the organizer would share this information with competitors. I have not received any info regarding the change beyond an email sent 10 days ago listing that as a possibility. Ride times would also be helpful. C'est la vie!

      Does any one know where we should park tomorrow for those of us shipping in??? Or where dressage will be? I'm going to try and get over there this afternoon to hand over my paper work and $$ since I have a sneaky suspicion that the secretary will be no where near where I will end up parking.

      NOT at all happy with the weather forecast (looks like we will get soaked both days)....or that I now need to braid two days in a row! The big boy better behave

          I'm planning to swing by early tomorrow and find out before I bring my horse over. I'll post (if I can from my iPhone). One advantage of only living 20/30 minutes away.

                It takes a good deal of physical courage to ride a horse. This, however, I have. I get it at about forty cents a flask, and take it as required. ~Stephen Leacock

                      Ir was very cold, very wet, and windy. I rode near the end of the 5 yr olds ( between Kim Severson and leslie Law - how humbling!) and all the 5 yr olds I saw were remarkably well behaved. the ring was grass ( well, mud) and held up pretty well, although very difficult for me to get good canter lengthenings on the circle with the conditions. Not sure if my mare had a relaxed back - I know I was cold and tight, but am very pleased with the test all in all. Didn't see anyone's test except Kim's, and it was very nice.
                      There were some very nice horses there.
                      Jumping is tomorrow and the course looks like fun - 5 stadium jumps, then a rolltop, biggish log, bench ( prelim sized), log vertical, trakener, oxer, doghouse 4 strides from a biggish drop over a placing log into the water , then a prelim sized rolltop.

                      Also, got stuck, had to be pulled out with tractor, forgot studs, had to borrow a set ( though ring was going to be sand), forgot test once and kind looked around and trotted REALLY slowly until it came to me and had all the wet leather form the halter colr my mare's face brown ( and she is almost white), so looked like a filthy horse.

                            Sorry....I didn't get this message and couldn't log on yesterday. Parking today should be over where you park for the HT....so hopefully no one gets stuck. Will be cold cold cold but hopefully the rain will hold off.

                            Scores are all really close....jumping will determine everything. Hope everyone has a good experience.

                            My guy was wonderful....it was a great experinece for them I believe.

                                  LOL...thanks! I was very pleased with him especially since he's been out of commission for two months and only had a couple of weeks of being back in work before coming (that was his 4th time jumping since July...good thing he has scope!). He's really starting to grow up....and going to be a LOT of fun next year. Ryan did a great job catch riding on him.

                                  I'm still COLD...I'm afraid that the weather isn't going to be very nice tomorrow!

                                  How did your pretty girl do? My friend saw her and thought she was lovely but I didn't get a chance to see her go (trying to get out of the weather!).

                                  I thought it was a great experience (apart from the weather)....love being able to get them in that atmosphere early on! And all the horses looked lovely and were well behaved.

                                      She went very well - however, you can really tell that an ammie was riding! She was having a little trouble pushing out of the mud and I didn't really have enough leg so although she had a safe, easy round, it was by no means 4 * material. But I know she was not what they are looking for coming in, so that's ok. She packed my sorry, frozen, muddy a** around with her ears up and tackled the prelim fences with no questions asked.
                                      She might not be a 4* horse, but she's a true ammie horse, and it was cool just to be in the Championships with a horse, I bred, trained all by myself and rode ( even if it was badly!).
