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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

  • Green Hunter Incentive and Derby Finals Week at KHP

    Green Hunter Incentive competition starts Tuesday, and International Hunter Derby Finals are Friday and Saturday! Is anyone going? Who are your favorites? I live relatively close to KHP so I try to go every year. It's always lots of fun. For those who won't be there, livestream is on EQSports and there's a discount for USHJA members.
    It's 2019. Do you know where your old horse is?

        Had a blast last year, but am unfortunately not terribly close. Highly recommended trip if you’ve never done it, and I hope to return some year.

          Derby finals are a blast, I went the year Lillie Keenan won and the year Brunello won his third time and otherwise watch online. I think the most stunning course they ever built was the year Lillie Keenan won, the whole ring set up was spectacular. The most incredible to see in person was Brunello's handy as he kept jumping higher and higher in the handy. I sat right by the last fence, chills.

              I only watched online but I agree about Lillie Keenan and C Coast Z and Liza and Brunello, those were spectacular rounds that really stood out to me. You are right about he course Lillie won over, it was beautifully built and very challenging, I still remember her gallop to the last fence, so exciting!

                  If you ever have a chance to take a Keeneland race track tour, do it! Cost is only $15 and there are tours almost every day. I thoroughly enjoyed it this morning. Keeneland is a pretty long drive from KHP, so allow for traffic and road construction. The place is huge, and steeped in racing history. You get to see the sales pavilion too. There is a library on the grounds, and while not part of the tour, it’s worth checking out.

                    They also have an excellent gift shop at Keeneland. And a track kitchen for breakfast.

                      Question, the horse that won the 3/3’3 green incentive championship.... it walked into the ring, picked the canter up for a step then came back to the trot.... I always thought that was penalized?

                        It’s possible they didn’t see it, especially in a big ring like that with a lot of jumps in it blocking the view in some directions. It didn’t quite get all the way into the canter, so they may have decided not to penalize it too much, particularly in the division for the greenest horses.

                        At the USEF judge’s clinics, I have heard that issue described as a tiebreaker, not a dealbreaker, which I think is a good way to look at it. So maybe the horse would have won by a few more points if that had not happened, but it still won even with that slight error.

                        It was a lovely round, for sure.

                            Very cute horse!

                            Does anyone know who was doing the commentary? It sounded to me like Ron Danta, and he addressed the other person as Kelly…?

                              Ron Danta and Kelli Cruciotti. Very few judges would penalize a few steps of canter in the opening circle.

                                  As Lillie came down to the last fence in the handy at the gallop the crowd was cheering, clapping and whistling as she rounded the turn TO the fence to encourage her gallop to it. I feel like that is when we could really tell the derbies were creating something special for hunters, that was a level of audience engagement the hunter world didn't get.

                                    USHJA members get a discount on the EQSports.net livestream, but I am not sure of the details. Your membership number may be needed. Also on the EQSports website, see if EQSports.net/free-live is available because they often have a free link to the commentary.
                                    It's 2019. Do you know where your old horse is?

                                      Go to USHJA. The website will confirm your membership and give you a code.

                                      I am loving the announcers for the Derby Final today.

                                        That must have been so exciting to be there, I loved her willingness to "go for it" - it took a lot of guts not to take a safer, more conservative pace to the last fence. And she was so young!
