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!

  • Texas Rose XC course thread--Stuart changed to Carsten

    And I must say that I think he's done us well.

    He has taken to course design and building.
    I schooled some of his work this weekend and found his thought process brilliant.

    I have so many great things to say.

    *He put out fantastic questions with terrain booby traps.
    *He so nicely set up the young horses for technical questions with a friendly coop or like fence on a turn to help collect after a long gallop.
    *Everything is natural or natural looking (you all know that I dislike circus act fences on XC (-) the occasional dog house) and all was REALLY fun/friendly.
    His water jump was REALLY fun!! It was coops to a bank up and then straight down a hill about 4 strides into the water--gallop flat on the way out up a hill over some logs or coop.

    Everything was nice enough that my little kid had plenty to school.

    I think we have found his place in the eventing world.

    Great job Stuart.

    Huh. We were just talking about him on the weekend and wondering what had become of him.

    Interesting.
    "look deep into his pedigree. Look for the name of a one-of-a-kind horse who lends to his kin a fierce tenacity, a will of iron, a look of eagles. Look & know that Slew is still very much with us."

      That's good to hear. Things have a way of unraveling in his life for whatever reason, and I hope he's now "turned the corner." Say Hi for me when you next see him.

          I sometimes wonder what the old time military riders would think about jumping duckies in the water and cheese wedges with mousie heads.

            would be interesting to ask General Burton...with Snickers in hand, of course! Happy to hear good things about Stuart!

                A couple of the girls from my barn are riding with him - I think they're really enjoying it.

                I'm trying to get up the nerve to go XC schooling with him!

                  I was just thinking about calling him to tell him how wonderful the horse is that I bought "out from under him". JUST KIDDING! It's a long story, but I told him about the horse and he wanted him, but just couldn't get the funds together soon enough. I hit a deer and totaled my car, so instead of buying another car, I bought a new horse

                      I always had a blast riding with Stuart way back when in Ontario, and always learned a ton (metric ), even though my own coach was fantastic.
                      He's the reason I have the mare my screen name is from.
                      Next time you see or are conversing with him, please say hello for me; I used to ride a huge palomino at Prelim the same time he was riding a CB/TB gelding.

                        Stuart has always been a genius on building schooling complexes, nice to see he's going on to full courses.

                          Oh Stuart.
                          ooops!
                          Apparently he was fired about the time I started the OP--and now Carsten Meyer is finishing the work.
                          No idea why.

                          But I like Carsten! I took a few lessons from him before bumping up to Prelim in 2007.

                          And he changed my life in the jumpers when I was riding my lil TK mare. : ) (early 2000s)

                          Now that I have two boys up and working I need to give him a call and school Holly Hill before their Rec HT.

                              ya he does work all around DFW. And I think he lives in the Dallas area as well.
                              : )

                              He's on facebook.

                                I went to go school Texas Rose a few weekends ago and I did not like the thought process at all. The hill is a great idea but i didn't like how it was all on that hill. That property is HUGE and the XC is in a very restricting space.

                                As for why Stewart is no longer there... I believe its because he never actually got his Designer license when he was in Canada.

                                As i heard it.. he started building the coarse at Texas Rose, said his coarse designer license would transfer and everything was good. Then come to find out he never finished the program just took a few classes on Coarse Designing. i could be wrong.

                                Who's planning on showing Texas Rose? I was thinking about it but money is tight and I'm very unsure about their XC coarse (it still needs a lot of work before they can open for a show. And when i went to go school, I just couldn't piece together the coarse in my head) I might still go the weekend of the show just to see how it all turns out.

                                    I was guessing that the information was a little odd and that he probably was replaced (not fired) because he was not licensed.

                                    I was unable to piece a course together as you mentioned. But apparently they are working around the clock to get things ready for the HT.
                                    Carsten is a clever guy. He'll have it up and running in time.
                                    I wonder if there are specific reasons why the XC stayed in the one area...?

                                    I entered today. : )

                                    TRHP is a sure thing. Even if it rains dressage and XC will always be a go due to the all weather arenas.

                                      I'll be heading out there for the show in February. Filling out my entry tomorrow, a bit late, but I needed to confirm my trailer ride out to Tyler.

                                      My friend and I went and checked it out last weekend. Looks pretty nice, maybe a touch concerned about the footing in the water jump. I'm hoping they weren't done with it, but otherwise, everything looks quite fun.

                                      Will be doing Prelim for a dry run before heading to Poplar CIC* in March.
