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!

  • Stadium Round Videos Please!

    Calling all LOW level eventers with steady camcorder hands and youtube accounts. Would you please direct me to your BN, N, or T level videos of your stadium rounds?

    I've been working on my body position, rating my speed, and a thousand other things this winter and would like to watch others at the lower levels tackle similar courses.


  • #2
    Oh I would be interested too! Also for checking out what the courses tend to look like I don't have any yet, but we just got a video camera.


    • #3
      Ok i'm a little embarrassed as it's not the nicest round, I was 15 or 16, so it was quite some time ago!

      It had rained buckets the night before so the footing was DEEP (hence why I got him deep rather than long, and OY that one stirde! oops! IMPULSION haha), but he was a good boy.

      We won this Training level event. (i'll throw in the other two phases just for kicks )

      If you want to just watch SJ, it's this video :


      cross country:


      Dressage: (best test EVER <3 that horse)

      hope these helped some!

        If you promise not to laugh too much, you can find Fleck and I.
        I'm pretty sure if you punch in "Fleck Appaloosa Jump" you can find boatloads of us

        Yep...here's one to get you started but there are tons!


        • #5

          how are you?! it's Rachel (EventingRed from way back when...HC days! haha)

          Hope you and your ponyboy are well, I miss seeing pictures of the two of you! How's showing going?

            Here in this gallery I have some that I took at FENCE last fall:

            CLICK HERE

            Last year I was trying to add video of stadium and dressage phases to my offering, but it hardly paid for the extra photographer to replace me for the day. I've pretty much given up on it for now but my elbow can always be twisted at the show if you really need it..

            Enjoy and I hope these prove helpful..

            Enjoy also on my home page a clinic video of Conrad Schumacher, how I wile away the summer after all you Eventers seem for some reason to move to Southern Labrador...

              Capturingyerride.... I'll be at the April FENCE show.....and would potentially be interested in pics if you'll be there!! (I'm sorry... I say potentially cause I'm poor!!! Trying NOT to spend money on extra stuff, but....every now and then you have to buy photos' right?!)


              • #8

                  Pony's first show jumping round in 2 years. Training at The Ark, 2009

                  Pissing rain and standing water, but he was rather well behaved considering (we won the division, but it was just a CT because of all the rain).


                  And for what it's worth, we'll be at FENCE running the T3D (if all goes as planned).


                  • #10
                    Not our greatest ever, but about where Bonnie was at the time. Watch at your own risk. Four faults and I think a couple seconds slow, which still puzzles me.

                      Okay, here's the video of my stallion's first Novice SJ round from last month at a combined test. I was very proud of him. haha Don't make fun of us!

                            That was one of our few not super freezing days here in NC. haha We got snow right after this show! haha

                            Thanks for the compliment on my boy. I think he's pretty awesome! He's only been under saddle just under a year, so I'm really proud of his progress!!!

                              Here is my youtube channel, but I can't promise it will be anything you want to repeat!


                              Hopefully supershorty won't mind because I always love watching her show jumping videos. She does strictly show jumping, and the fences are pretty big, but I think her position is just fabulous!

                                Oooh, I'll be running regular ol' boring training... not enough time to get the 4th score in for T3D, but I plan to go help and take part of the T3D stuff!!! Do you need any helpers roki?

                                And...capturinyerride... can't wait to meet you!!!!

                                    Here is mine - http://www.youtube.com/audioblood86. I feel like I have a fairly steady pace around a course, but my right leg has a mind of its' own in still photos.

                                      Thanks for all the replies everyone!

                                      Ya'll are funny...this wasn't an excersise to get you to post your rounds so they could be picked apart and taunted by the group. I just wanted to see some low level rounds so I could get a feel for how the courses flow, how you use your bodies (especially to slow down the overzealous forward moving machines that think 2.6-3' is just TOO exciting), and yes, how you deal with the "oops" moments. There are tons of videos out there of very inspiring rides over big complex courses but that's not where we are a this point in the game. You know, sometimes we get so stuck in our heads that a 2'6" oxer is simply HUGE especially after that four stride line...whew.

                                      The Brown Horse and Super Eventer--very nice camera angles on your rounds!

                                      CatchMeIfUCan--thanks for adding the SuperShorty video to yours. Very helpful.

                                      Piaffeprincess98--your link was to a rock video?????

                                        Here's one of mine, although the camera was down at one end of the ring so we're a speck for part of it:
