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!

    My daughter is constantly watching youtube videos of GP's, european ponies.. etc. The favorites on my youtube account change frequently but Flexible with Rich Fellers is always on the list. My daughter loves those smaller horses -

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3BgmaWi3ACo

    Here is a video of Flexible from a show we attended and were literally close enough to reach out and touch him. (didn't take the video and I can actually see myself in the audience!)

      Wow I love RF's style. Nice. So light in the tack and such a soft hand between the jumps.

        And he is a large rider on a small horse and he makes it so that you barely notice him. When I watch him ride Flexible all I see if the horse. And I LOVE that horse. I had my own video of this ride on my youtube but the whole time I kept swooning over that horse.. out loud.. and my daughter told me to take it off my youtube because it was embarrassing!!

          Not GP but...

          I've trying to watch this video of Peter Pletcher and Redwine a few times before I horse show this summer. His ride here is really similar to the ride my horse likes and it helps to see how he does it (better and with bigger jumps).

              So I should be finishing my portfolio for the last class of my MBA but...

              I've always enjoyed watching this pair

              Conrad Homfeld and Abdullah
              http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gMXjNPNA-J0

              and when I clicked on that video this came up on the sidebar and so I just had to watch

              http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v7Lo5...eature=related

              which got me thinking about Rodrigo

              http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5Exf8Lcxo8

              probably one of my favorite pairs to watch were Chris Kappler and Royal Kaliber but I can't find any videos on Youtube, oh well guess I should get back to work

                  He did barrel racing one year too, on Charmane's barrel horse IIRC. That was fab!

                    I'm biased because he was incredibly nice to all of us when he was here as well as giving his horses scratches and love between rounds, but I love Bjorn Ikast.

                    This one is when there was a storm coming in the middle of one of our rainiest winters in history, so the buck is just an expression of what all the horses were feeling. I love how he just keeps going and doesn't worry about it.

                    I didn't find his jump off ride on Braveheart that he won in Tucson which is the one I really wanted to post, but here's a different jump off ride on him:

                        I am a HUGE fan of Rich Fellers; just ask him! LOL He gives 100% to every horse he rides. Flexible is great fun to watch bounce around those big courses! Your daughter LeeB10 picked a great one to admire.

                          I watched him ride in the GP at Wilsonville in June (Early summer Classic?..I think..) and he wasn't riding Flexible, but another small-ish horse, it was a beautiful ride. I think he pulled a rail or two, but so did everyone except for 2 riders. He is so quiet in the tack, just awesome to watch ride.


                          I LOVE this video of Richard Spooner and Pako

                                  Not the best video since the jump blocks a lot of the ring.

                                    Not a GP ride or a GP rider, but it's still so smooth and controlled... something to work on for sure!

                                    The video always makes me a little sad though, because Graphiq passed away earlier this year...

                                      I'm a little surprised that there are so few GP riders that people watch on these forums. Is that really true?
