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.

Long List? What is it exactly?

  • Long List? What is it exactly?

    I recently saw a friend on facebook had updated her status to say that she was "long listed". I was told that previously you were placed on the long list if completed a long format CCI**.

    However, since the long format CCI** no longer exists, I was wondering how one qualifies for this list. I would have guessed that perhaps you had to complete a few CIC** or something along those lines but the rider in question has not...

    I am finding it difficult to find any of this info on the USEA or USEF websites so I thought I would try asking here!

    That is a very old-fashioned term, I think, and no longer really accurate/relevant. Now we have "developing rider" lists, etc. and I'm not sure exactly what the qualifications are.

    But I know my trainer just got put on it.

      There is no such thing as a "long-list" anymore. There is a "developing riders" list, the A&B Training Lists, and prior to championships like the Olympics, WEG, and Pan Am's people are chosen from the A&B Lists to form a "short-list."

        I would be very surprised if there was no longer a Long List.

        Yes, it is correct that it used to be something that happened to a horse/rider pair after completing a CCI**. But the specific point of the list and the significance of making it after a successful 2 star, was to identify those who in the next calendar year could become technically qualified for a Games. (Keep in mind that the Pan Ams is a ***)

        Also know that the LL more than anything is a mailing list (email list now?) that is used to keep all potentially qualifiable riders aware of issues at the international levels. It also kept them abreast of the current procedures in place for consideration on the next Team.

        The List is a matter of fairness to all technically qualified riders (the USET has been sued in the past over selection procedures so fairness is certainly an issue!) and to prevent having to constantly update the list through the course of the year, it makes sense to create the list from those that at the end of the year could become technically qualified in the next calendar year to be selected.

        I don't believe it was ever a published list for general consumption, but I do think the selectors receive a copy of it--and the mail department of the USET certainly got a copy. The other interesting thing was that at one time the foundation (can't think of the name) that as a rider you can set yourself up in to raise tax deductible donations used the long list as the qualification for a rider to be eligible to use them as an umbrella.

        What is the current status of the Long List I don't pretend to know. Certainly more riders complete a CIC** then a CCI** so it would probably a bigger/longer list if that's the bar. I also don't keep track of current upper level qualification requirements, but for the reasons above (especially the fairness aspect) I would be very surprised if the list didn't come into play at whatever point a horse/rider could technically become qualified for a Games in the next calendar year. And regardless, I suspect that when you're ready to run Advanced it's time to be put into the loop so to speak.

          The "long list", as many of remember it, is a bit antiquated now. The long list represented a time when there were very few combinations competing at the 3 and 4 star level...and a completion with a qualifying score alerted team selectors of promising combinations for future. Although the USA is not flush with top combinations, it does however have more
          3 and 4 star combinations to use as a long list/developing riders list. The bar has been raised... a promising horse at two star level does not a team combination make. There are many 3 star combinations that do not stand a chance at WEG/OG level. It makes sense now to focus on those who have shown consistant form at the highest levels before the USEF shells out money for further development. This fall, some seriously good combinations did not do as well as hoped on the euopean "tour" of 3 and 4 star events and these combinations are either currently or have been past members of the A and B squads... Sadly this makes it harder for those two star combinations to get a "look in" until they get to consistant placings at 3 and 4 star level....and on their own dime.

            For some time now USEF has published detailed specs complete with applications for the Developing rider list and a separate set of specs and applications for the next upcoming major International event.
            http://www.usef.org/_IFrames/breedsd...peventing.aspx
            This is true for all International disciplines.

            Here are the qualifications for the developing rider list:
            The Developing Rider program is available to riders of any age who aspire to compete at the highest levels of the sport. If you are applying, each horse/rider combination must have completed a CCI2*. If you are identified through the talent spotter program, you may or may not have completed a CCI2*.
            "Precedence is given to riders without prior team experience".

            Nothing on those instructions about a "Long List" so not sure how it could come into play for any selection process.
            However, the email notifications are addressed to "Eventing Long Listed Riders".

            The qualifications for Weg, for example, are very detailed as to what events count for the selection process ( 3/4 star events). Because of the very different requirements it seems possible to be on the developing rider list for years and never compete at a level sufficient to qualify for Weg, Olympics etc.

              Developing riders & long list not interchangable

              Developing Riders -- you either apply or, beginning last year, could be nominated by a "talent spotter" (mostly riders who are current & former Team fixtures -- Amy Tryon, Kim Severson, etc.) Not sure exactly how many people apply, but the final named list of 15 or so basically means all those folks can attend a clinic or clinics w/a Developing Riders coach. Unless you travel all over the place, that's typically one or two clinics in a year. But being named to the list is prestigious and is a feather in your cap you can put on your resume for potential sponsors. Beyond that though, it doesn't mean much. Many people in the Developing Riders program never make it onto the A/B list and some folks who start having strong performances seemingly out of nowhere can vault right past the DR list to the A/B squad.

              I'm not sure if there's really a long-list or not, but as subk said, all of us who have completed a two-star get regular e-mails that start out: "Dear long listed riders..." and usually have some application form attached to be considered for some team that's two years off. There's no application process involved in getting on that e-mail list, it just happens once you've met certain competitive criteria. there's also no expectation that you WILL fill the paperwork out, etc.
              I evented just for the Halibut.

                I got a call that I am on the long list and they wanted to update my contact info and make sure I was willing to receive emails. I asked how I was on the long list and they said you just have to have completed an advanced competition in the current year. I haven't completed a CCI** because my horse got hurt last fall and I didn't run at Fair Hill this past fall. So, I guess you have to go advanced now to make the long list.

                  Intermediates only

                  I'm not sure that is correct as I know someone who completed 3 Intermediates and is "long listed." She had a very successful year at Prelim and a frustrating year at Intermediate, but certainly shows a TON of potential for the future with her very talented equine partner. She did not compete at Advanced, nor did she complete a CIC2* or a CCI2*. So, the long list remains a mystery, clear as mud...

                    Well, apparently what people put on their blogs and what the USEA defines as a rider with potential for the team are two separate things.

                      I have been successfully competing at the intermediate level for several years and this is is the first year I have started receiving the long-list emails and whatnot. I just moved up to advanced this past season. The girl who I talked to said you have to complete an advanced, but who knows??? I used to think you had to be really successful at advanced, maybe even *** levels and look like you had a true shot at making the short list, so I was very surprised to find out how long the long list really is!

                          Back in 2003, I asked how many people were on the list. The answer was "about 70, sometimes as many as 100". I would guess the number of advanced competitors and the number of CCI** long format completions might be an equivalent number.

                            As antiquated as it may be, the "long list" is still around. I received an email to verify my contact information last month

                              I did not say it was not still around, but rather that its function would have appeared to have changed.
