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!

  • Anyone else watching the George Morris Excellence in Equitation class?

    I was pretty pleased to find out I'd be able to watch this over the internet! Am curious if anyone else is.

    It is accessible via ShowNet Vision and their new live streaming ability. It is not free though. Had to join for $50 but then received $50 free credits for streaming. I figured it was worth it because they will also be streaming from Devon.

    I am watching it as well, I've used the Vision service twice before, and although the quality of the video isn't as good at USEFNetwork, it still works!
    However I believe the free credits are only good until April 1st, I may be wrong but that's from what I remember in the email blast they sent out about it

      I just got up to the ring to watch in person.

      I had hoped to be here in time to see it from the start, but the vet I was waiting for must need a new watch.

        I bet myself you'd be there MHM!

        do either of you know what the "schooling ring points" are based on?

        and thanks for the input Iequitate - the man I emailed said the points would work for Devon, but I'd better check now!

        I wish there was sound with the video - its weird to have it dead quiet without hoof-falls or the crowd.

          Typically they have a separate judge watching the schooling area to award points for the rider's preparation to go in the ring, since they have no trainer allowed to help them for this class. I don't know who that judge is this year, but they usually find someone with lots of experience for that job!

            They said it was Karen Golding, who I know has been around forever.

            One rider only got a 3 while the rest have had the full 6 points. What would give someone the 3?

              One rider just got a 0, I would assume that's a major fault - maybe fell off, ran her horse to bad distances, wasn't following schooling ring etiquette, etc.

                  I would imagine the score from the schooling area might reflect whether you allowed enough time to get ready, gave clear, polite instructions to your groom, jumped an appropriate number of warm up jumps, etc.

                  I'm just guessing, though.

                      Wonder what happens to your schooling score if you have a horse that takes an odd prep, ie no jumping, only flat, etc.

                        Last year when I judged the Ronnie Mutch there was a rider that got a 0 in the schooling area. We subsequently found out that it was due to jumping the flagged jumps in the schooling area the wrong way. There are a number of things that could get them a 0.

                            Schaefer Raposa leading with a 92, Tori and Maddy Darst tied with a 90.5. Right now the others to return for second round are Lauren Tyree, Shawn Casady, Kelcie Brophy, Liza Finsness, Anna Cardelfe, Kristen Lutz, Syd Shulman, Alexa Boggio, and Jacob Pope. 11 more

                              Schaefer Raposa is leading right now. Tori Colvin and Maddy Darst are tied for second right behind her. About ten left in the first round, then the top twelve scores come back for the second round. Further testing after that as needed.

                                    Short answer: No.

                                    Long answer: A smart exhibitor who can demonstrate a good automatic release might be wise to use it well. I've seen a couple of people do that at the finals when GM judged. With good results.

                                      I thought Kristen Luzt and Roseberry had a really nice round - anyone else surprised that she didn't get a higher score? or did I miss something other than her slightly too tight turn to the final line?
