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!

    Training Three-Day Event (T3D): Open to competitors of any age, on horses four years of age or older. Both the competitor and the horse must have obtained NQR’s at four horse trials at the Training Level or higher, one of which must be attained as a combination. A competitor established at the Preliminary level may compete on a horse which has obtained 2 NQR’s at the Training Level or higher.
    Hey, hold the phone . . .

    Am I reading this correctly? There are NO CUTOFF DATES for qualifiers?? If so, then hey--I'm qualified with Keebler already!

    Which is NOT to say we're ready in any way, shape or form since I've yet to point his spotted nose at a XC fence. But wow, if we have a few good outings, maybe the IEA T3D is not entirely inconceivable as a goal this summer. Yay!

      Sorry to sound stupid, but what does NQR mean in this context? I always thought it meant "not quite right". Especially in discussions of lameness and the mental status of eventers.

      And I've completed 2 Training levels in the past season, have entered my first one for this year, so I still have the T3D at GMHA firmly in my sights!

        Me too!
        What it does mean is national qualifying ride.

        Here is the meaning that I copied from USEF:

        Except as noted below, National Qualifying Result (NQR): an NQR is achieved by completing the entire Horse Trial and scoring:
        Completion, except as noted below, means having completed the entire Horse Trial, and it means having: completed the cross-country test with no more than one
        disobedience.
        - not more than 50 penalty points in the Dressage Test; and
        - No jumping penalties at obstacles on the Cross Country Test, and not more than 90 seconds (36 penalty points) exceeding the optimum time; and not more than 16 penalties at obstacles in the Jumping Test.

        I am hoping to volunteer at GMHA this year (schedule still unsure) and get my "NQR" for next year!!!

          You have to have one NQR as a combination, remember... but that is easy to do by June.

              Well, if you count me as an "established Preliminary rider" I'm not sure I need even that. But I sure as heck don't. That was a long time ago, and the only "established" thing was Gwennie.

                That's not USEA recognized, so it is entirely at the discretion of the organizers. Try contacting them: http://www.gmhainc.org/contacting-gmha.html

                  HA, DW. You established that you were a fabulous prelim rider by the third fence, AIR.

                  You and Gwennie were a force of nature. I'm so happy for you that you found each other!

                    I'm not totally sure about the N3D but I believe it would be similar to Training but at Novice, so 4 N events, at least one with no XC penalties. But because it is an educational event, they can be flexible. Remember you won't have steeplechase fences, they are calling it a "steeple-PACE" because you're just gonig to gallop around to get a feel for going faster without having to navigate the jumps.

                      Excellent! I emailed the organizer; hopefully it will work out. Our goal for next year is a T3D, but if we can do it at novice this year that would be great. Thats good about the steeplechase too, Id be kinda scared to see some people who go novice try a steeplechase!

                          I didnt meant that to be mean deltawave, we are going novice too Charlie and I would defiantly be scary in a steeplechase at this point, but Im sure you would rock it! Im pretty sure her ex-racehorseness would beat out our new jumping skills haha

                          I think it is such a great idea to have a N3D. And here is the qualifications from the organizer:
                          Horse and Rider must be registered members of the USEA. Horses and riders must have competed in four sanctioned Training (Novice) Level Horse Trials; one event must have been as a combination (Novice – two combinations). At each event the rider or horse, or combination must have completed the entire trials with not more than 50 penalty points in Dressage, no jump penalties and not more than 90 seconds (36pts) time penalties on Cross Country, & not more than 16 penalties at obstacles in Stadium Jumping. Qualifying events must be listed on entry. Junior division competitors will be placed on teams. Bring a groom!

                          If we can we are planning on going! Anyone else in?

                            I would love to go but I had to take last year off from competing. I won't be NQR until 2011. Hoping to at least volunteer.
