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!

      Sounded like Allison Springer was trying to get money together to go as well. At least that's what the last blog on her website said.

        I think that Kate Hicks is also fundraising to go since she missed Rolex.

        My understanding is that she found out less than 1 week before Rolex that the FEI wasn't going to let her go to a CCI**** w/o running another CIC*** first. I think that she is going to run the CIC*** at Jersey and then hopefully go to Germany!!! Poor gal... she was so ready for Rolex and she and that horse are TOTALLY qualified based on skill.

              I don't know enough about her program to say much, but she's a very good horsewoman. She knows what she is doing and does the right thing for her horses. And I'm pretty sure Arthur got a nice long vacation after Blenheim (September) until the beginning of the year, shoes pulled off and all. He's well taken care of!

              How about some of the horses in Europe that are projected to run at Luhmuhlen and Burghley after also doing Badminton?

                This is my ignorance, but i thought Boyd Martin competed that horse for her for a while. Did she as a rider qualify? (do you even have to do that??) or is a just qualifications based on the horse to run a 4 star.

                TIA

                  If the rider has achieved 5 MER at 3 and 4 star level then the rider keeps that qualification for life.

                  (article 506-8) I think

                    Not quite the same amount of travel involved. And travel is tough on horses, as AS herself noted in her blog last year at Pau when she was eliminated by the GJ after dressage for a horse that was NQR. She chalked up the sore hind end to the long hours on the road.

                    Also, Burghley is in September so hardly relevant.

                    But all the same, I do hope AS gets the clean rounds she's working so hard for. Hopefully, life will get easier at the top.

                        both horse and rider have to be qualified. Boyd only competed the horse for two seasons I believe. Kate had already run him at the CCI*** level before Boyd rode him...and she rode him at Fair Hill CCI*** this past fall.

                        It was a quirk in the rules that people missed. They said that her CIC*** qualifier was too old to count for moving up even though she had run a recent CCI***...basically, she was qualified for a CCI*** but for a **** they make you run another CIC***. Fairly stupid if you just did a CCI....but it is the FEI.

                          They are still trying to make the team. Since Will couldn't run because of a broken collarbone and Allison had a stop. Their last hope is running well in Germany if they want a spot on the team.

                            Looks like Kate and Belmont had a nice conservative X-C round today. I imagine that she is just trying to get that CIC*** finish under her belt without putting too much strain on the horse.

                            I really hope that Germany works out for that pair!

                              Looks as though Kate did not get it togther for Germany..Im surprised so many people step up to the plate and support AS (her fundraising event was obviously successful she said she needed $25,000 to go) even though she likely has very little chance of WEG given their track record

                                Advmom: From what I understand, Kate decided that it was too much to ask the horse after he ran the CIC*** at Jersey. Probably a good, conservative horsemanship decision IMO. I hope that they re-group and make it to Rolex next year!
