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!

    Eagerly awaiting Cacchione results here - but a question about the AQHA High Point Rider competition. (seems odd to be posting this in H/J - but oh well). Could someone explain how the scoring works for the rail phase? I assume that this is run somewhat similar to a flat phase in the Cacchione - working as a group at the walk, jog and lope. The scores seem very spread out, much more so that the usual flat phase scores in the Cacchione.

    The top two riders have scores of 211 and 210 respectively, then its 148, 133, 111, 106, 88, 76 to round out the top 8 - seems like a LOT of variation. Also, one rider has a score of 1 and five riders have zeros - surely there can't have been that many falls or eliminations.....

    Anyone familiar with IHSA western want to explain how this works to an HJ rider?

                          In addition to riding on the rail at a walk, jog, and lope, Western competitors also must do a pattern. This could be why scores seem so spread out. The second part of the competition is reining. Scores of 0 are given in reining for going off pattern (over spinning, under spinning, scotching stops, etc).

                          The scores you are quoting are the combined scores.
                          Only two emotions belong in the saddle: One is a sense of humor. The other is patience.

                                    Fun weekend

                                    We just returned yesterday and had a great time. My daughter competed in individual open fences; it was tough because a week ago she took a bad fall on her own horse and has a severely sprained knee with maybe some ligament damage, but she wasn't going to miss this even though her left leg was pretty much worthless to her. She made it through the course and got around as best she could and hopes to be back again next year!

                                    Horses were pretty good for the most part. They were supplied by a whole bunch of different folks, and the local schools (Stanford, Cal Poly, etc.) brought a bunch too. They definately saved the best of the bunch for the Cachionne.

                                    Flat class for the Cachionne was a marathon. They didn't ask riders to drop stirrups but it was just a ton of sitting trot, working trot, canter, circles, back to sitting trot, etc. with hardly any breaks to walk and it really weeded out the riders that were not in shape. After the flat phases there were three riders tied at the top (the only one of the 3 I remember was Matthew P. from Findlay, he rode amazingly this weekend.)

                                    We didn't see the over fences on Friday but came back for the top 10 ride-off on Saturday. Several of the top flat people were gone by then, and several that were down in the middle of the pack after the flat were back up in the top 10.

                                    The top 10 ride-off was really anyone's to win or lose. The eventual winner of the class came in at the top and stayed there, but there was a huge change in the rest of the placings. The U.Conn rider came back in 2nd but dropped to 10th; she had a gorgeous ride but had problems with the counter canter to the last fence and then a stop. Many other riders moved up or down. It came down to the top two, they brought them in to switch horses and then do a test. They each made a mistake: James F almost forgot his final element of the test (cantering a circle), and Hanna M had a big chip at the first fence, so after the judges conferred for a while, they brought in one more new horse and each rider did the test again on that horse. Both had good rides but James F, IMO, just had a bit more of that extra flair that won the class.

                                    It was interesting watching the stock class, especially the rail (?) work. It really helped that one of the stock riders from my daughters school explained a lot of stuff to us as to how they were being judged, etc., because we didn't have a clue. To me they all looked alike, but once she shared her knowledge with us I could start to understand it a bit. FWIW, she said when she watches a hunt seat Eq. class she feels the exact same way, LOL.

                                    Big congrats to Zone 6 that won the team hunt seat (UK) and tied for reserve (Findlay)!

                                    Weather was not quite what I expected from So. Cal, it was mostly overcast and a bit chilly but that didn't matter, we all had a wonderful time.

                                      We usually have a few weeks of "June gloom" type weather where it is overcast most of the day, it's not *always* sunny in so cal

                                      I'm happy to hear all the nice reports. My roommate helped run the show, she's been working on it (and stressing about it) for months
