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.

      i wanna see... but grrrr, my May 2nd coth just camd 3 days ago... so i guess i will have to wait a while for this one!

        Can you scan it and post it for us non-subscribers to see? I have a good friend that works there.

          I think that Paige is a lovely and very talented rider and her hard work is paying off. That said, I noticed a few things in her pictures that I thought were interesting, esp. because they seem to so consistently appear through the many pictures.

          In the jumper and eq. pictures her eyes are properly looking up to where she is going. In the hunter pictures she is looking down.

          In the jumper pictures, she is pushing off the neck on the landing view and holding mane in the over the top view (believe me I would be wrapped around the neck at those heights hanging on for dear life) but in eq and hunter she has nice fingers resting releases.

          In the eq, she looks if anything posed, whereas in the hunter and jumper picts she is looking dynamic (she also took off from Oklahoma to that fence!).

          These are not criticisms of her ability -- just what I saw in those specific moments caught on film. The pictures are lovely and I think Paige has a great future ahead of her if she wants this as her career.

          p.s. I don't have a scanner so I can't help you there.

            Look, Paige never came over here to ask for your critique, so lay off Paige. She is an awesome rider, and an awesome person--a not-too-common combination, and I bet she could ride circles around most posters on this thread.

              Calm the heck down rainrot. That's totally rude and uncalled for. Larosa is permitted to make her observations, and I thought she did it in a very nice, positive way.

              If Paige doesn't want people looking at her, then she shouldn't publish her picture in a national magazine. And for what its worth, I'm sure she doesn't care. Nor does she need some flunky jumping to her defense.

                Some "flunky"? WTH does that mean? The reason I am jumping to her defense is that she is a friend of mine. And I doubt she had *any* hand in publishing those pics--her trainers enjoy (and rightfully so) the publicity; PJ could care less.

                Bottom line: she did NOT come over here and ask for comments about her pics, she did not ask for anyone's criticisms, and I guarantee that she rides betetr than the vast majority of the people on this board. Therefore, I think they have no right to criticize her.

                Flunky, indeed. If you only knew . . .

                  Rainrot, you are a good friend to come to PJ's defense but I think you're over-reacting a tad. Just let it go.

                      rainrot is good at over reacting

                      but I do have to agree with her that PJ can ride circles around all of you (and me!) put together so if she doesnt care what her position looks like who really cares? Looking gorgeouse on an eq horse at 3'6" and trying to go fast in the high juniors are two totally different things!

                        Once again people go over the edge in their hyper-sensitivity when it comes to any discussion of anything on these boards ...


                        • #13
                          Did anyone read Larosa's post? For Pete's sake! She took nothing away from Paige. She made some interesting and valid observations that Paige rides her jumpers different from her hunters. Why is that a crime?

                          So, um, because I can't ride like Paige, mea culpa, I'm forbidden from noticing that her eyes are down over a fence? Is that how it works? Let me just back up and kiss the butts of all the (many) riders out there with USET jackets. You're right. They're all perfect and infallible, and I'm not worthy to lick their boots (though I'm sure you'll step in for me there rainrot).

                          And yeah, rainrot. flunky. Or maybe lacky is a better word. Paige doensn't need your protection, and its clear to me all you really meant to do is point out that you have a famous "friend". I thought you were some pre-teen for crying out loud. Grow up. And when you realize what a knowledgeable rider Larosa is, maybe you'll realize you can learn something from her.

                            For what its worth, I certainly didn't take Larosa's comments as criticism in any way. It was just observations that the rider rides different horses in different classes differently. I think you could probably say that about many of the top riders, and it teaches you something about what is expected and what is needed to win in those classes. That's not critcism.

                            That said, let's lay off the personal attacks. On both sides.

                              the funny thing is rainrot is married! youd think she could be a little more mature about some things!

                              but dont get me wrong i think rr is great!



                              • #16

                                I thought larosa was just pointing out what appear to be differences in the way hunters, jumpers, and eq horses are ridden. Not about criticism, just saying "hey-- isn't it interesting how her form is different depending on the job at hand."


                                • #17

                                  We walked thru Salamander at the last Middleburg Farm Tour. Awesome facility -my own home pales in comparision to the digs these horses live in - in both size and cleanliness.
                                  And if you ever wonder how the kid got so good - she's got a cheerleader the size of Texas in her mom, Sheila. The woman has got to be the nicest lady who ever had that kind of money. She met with the folks at the farm tour and gushed about her daughter. I cannot imagine a more positive environment.

                                  (as I blatantly attempt to shift this thread)

                                    That is how I interpreted it, too, and having now seen the ad, you see that it is so unusual to be able to compare so many horses with different jobs, all in one ad.

                                    rainrot, I applaud your loyalty to your friend, but I don't think larosa was doing anything other than commenting on what she saw.

                                    BTW, it is a nice ad!



                                    • #19
                                      Yep, Clive's Mom. I've met Mrs. Johnson a couple of time and seen her at USA Eq annual meetings, and have always been very impressed by her. She's seems so elegant intelligent, and polite, but so genuine and funny too. A top class lady all the way, and not in the money sense.

                                        man the one year i was actually within 500 miles of middleburg was the year salamander wasnt on the tour. i passed it on the way to snowden clarke's place a few times, though, and would always slow down and try to get a good peek.
