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!

    Lucky, I'm attaching some information about MIPS. The technology was developed first for bike helmets, I believe, but has now been included in helmets for many sports, including equestrian.



    The MIPS BPS System can reduce the rotational motion and reduce the risk of brain damage.

    • Dewey Lovely pictures, you both look wonderful and that purple ribbon sure looks good with Sky's gleaming coat! I do hope you get the chance to take Sky to an AQHA show. It was such a neat experience, everyone was SO nice and the prizes are hard to beat! It was also refreshing to see that the judging seemed totally in line with what you'd expect at your typical A show. I know it's such a long haul for you to make a world show, but I think you'd love the experience of just showing at a local AQHA show!

      Here are a few pics of Cash from the show...I've been slacking on getting pics of my mare, hopefully I can get a few good ones this weekend

      • Wow, Sugar, those pics are great! Thanks for sharing. Cash looks gorgeous, and I love the angle of the jumping shot. The posed pic looks like all AQHA posed shots--I've always wondered how they get the horse to stretch his nose down like that. I've never had someone I can ask before. So, how do they do it? Does the photographer offer a carrot down low or something? Anyway, Cash looks so good--I am glad you and he ended your show career together on such a high note.

          Thanks, Dewey! Hahaha glad you asked, the pictures were quite the production! The photographer had a couple of assistants, one who would make sure the horse was set up and angled correctly, and another who held a broom with a fake horse head on the end which he'd put in front of Cash's nose and get him to try to sniff it

          If the fake horse didn't work, they had a bunch of other weird objects they'd try to use to pique the horse's interest! I will admit, they were the most expensive show photos I've ever purchased, I think they cost more than my entire bill - but well worth it!!

          Also, the backdrop was just a green screen and the prizes and logos are all added afterwards!

          • Hey all, I need some of those great re-rider jingles, prayers, positive thoughts, what have you for my dog Max (my Cavalier spaniel). He has to have surgery for an intestinal obstruction. Had him to the emergency vet last night after 4 hours of on and off vomiting. X-ray last night didn’t show anything but I had him stay for an ultrasound this morning (listening to my gut instinct!) and they saw a blockage. So, surgery today.

            Comment


            • Lost: Jingles for Max!! I hope surgery will go well and a short recovery for him!

              Sugar: Thanks for sharing the whole set up for the photos! Interesting! And I LOVE the jumping photo! Cash is looking great! Also great to hear that your herd is doing well!

              Lucky: I hope your boots work out!


              Dewey: i'm very excited about getting the helmet, thank you for the suggestion! I figured the dial might help with my kids size head I saw people complaining about the strap being forward, (i had that problem with OneK), is that the case for you?
              You and Sky both look amazing!! And i also want to comment on how shiny Sky's coat is!! Congrats on placing!

              *****
              It is amazing to lesson and not working with a trainer that stares at her phone all day long, screams "STOP!!" across the arena and getting humiliated. Love this new barn so much!

              • Jingles for Max! Hoping for a quick recovery from surgery! Hang in there, Lost.

                Faye, the helmet harness was annoying at first, but now I am used to it. The main issue is that it's not a perfect helmet for oval heads like mine. They provide two different liners with the EQ3, one for round and one for oval. The oval liner does improve the fit, but it is not quite as good a fit on me as my Charles Owen show helmet. But I wear it anyway. I will probably go for the Charles Owen MyPS for my next helmet.

                • I am in depositions today, so can't catch up with everyone yet. But I am jingling like mad, Austen, for your baby!!

                  Comment


                  • Austen- big jingles for Max and big hugs for you!

                    Dewey- lovely pics and thanks for the info on the helmets.

                    Faye- if you ride the pony again, I would love to see pics. I figure for my boots, I'm gonna hedge my bets and use a grocery sack on the right leg for Saturday.

                    • Thanks all!! Max’s surgery went smoothly. The Dr. will update me again in the morning but when I called this evening the nurse said he was resting comfortably. I asked her to give him a kiss and she said he has a sticker on his kennel saying “kisses, please”. Apparently he was giving kisses to anyone who would let him last night. He is so typical of the breed, such love bugs. He’ll be at the clinic for a couple days (SOP for abdominal surgery) and then they expect 10 - 14 days to full recovery. So, fingers crossed all goes to plan.

                      Sugar - so nice of you to pop in! The pictures are fantastic! What a nice memento of your shows together! Looking forward to your adventures with the mare. Nice to hear Goose is in a good situation also.

                      Faye - when DD rode IHSA in college if there was a pony in the paddock, she always got it! (She’s also petite) She loved it! I do think it’s an adjustment when you’ve regularly been on horses so good for you for taking on the challenge! And YAY for a trainer who actually make you feel good about yourself!

                      Dewey - you and Sky are such a team! What a great show for you.

                      Lucky - what an ...... interesting (?) show day. I’ve seen a lot of crazy in the horse world but I think that takes the cake. Twilight Zone indeed! I’m glad your and Pony’s time went well, even if her charms were not fully appreciated by the judge. How kind of you to be there for E. The subjective aspect of judging can be disappointing.

                      PF - someone already said it but Dante could not have landed in a softer spot. I hope his feet get in shape quickly so you can get in the tack! Looking forward to your adventures.

                      Welcome to our newest re-riders. Will catch up with you soon!

                        • Sorry, I have no video to share from the show.

                          My barnmate's mom videoed one of my Saturday rounds on her phone and shared it with me, but it's really blurry. I gave her my video camera for the Derby Sunday, but she didn't get my first round (I don't know what happened--it's not on the camera), and the camera quit because the memory was full after my first jump in the second round. So sorry!

                              • Lost- so glad Max is doing well

                                Greys- I read the prize list you posted in another thread, for Thermal. It was fascinating to see how the big shows run, especially the horse limits on the GP type classes. I know for the smaller GP here, it's not unusual for riders to have 4-5 horses. With the general classes, hunter type, how are there 4 OF classes with only 1 flat- presuming I read it right?

                                  The GP limitations for horses are as a result of FEI rules. For most FEI Grand Prix's, you are limited to one horse. At the 5star level, I think all the FEI classes are limited to one horse.

                                  I'm not sure I know what you mean for the hunter classes. Most hunter divisions are typically 4 over fences and a flat. All those points in the five classes decide champion. I could be wrong but I think your under saddle points only matter if you're in the top 5. If there's a tie, the person with the most over fences points is Champion.

                                  In some of the lower level one day divisions at Thermal, they just do 3 over fences classes and an under saddle. So a whole division in one day. This is a nice option if you can trailer in for the day.

                                  • Sending jingles for speedy healing for Max. It sounds like the staff will miss his kisses, but know you are anxious to have him home.

                                    • Greys- it's been forever since I've done hunter/jumper type stuff. I'm just not used to seeing that many over fences in a hunter division- I figure one for each way of the ring, and then at the local level, it's one more eq over fences and then a flat. The extra OF was what I couldn't figure out.

                                      PF- I hope your St. Jude event is a rousing success!! Can't wait to hear about it.

                                      • YAY at all your good ponies Sugar.

                                        Lucky I am a another who doesn't know what to say about the drunks. I grew up in Ponyclub over here, so no alcohol allowed with horses and no prizes other ribbons and trophies.

                                        Yay at Dante being sounder. If you remember PF Dodge was given to us as not sound

                                        It was because of all the mud he was standing in at the riding school. He has been sound here and is such a pleasure to ride if you are a beginner or more advanced.

                                        The pony sounds like a great fit for you Faye.

                                        YAY Dewey. C O N G R A T U L A T I O N S !
                                        It is better to ride 5 minutes a day than it is to ride 35 minutes on a Sunday.

                                        • Y'all, can I post in here or have I not been out of the sport long enough to qualify as a re-rider?

                                          If it helps, I rode today for the first time in months and my legs feel like noodles after a 30 minute hack
