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!

      I am so excited for Reed! Definitely going to root for her through the observation events. What an amazing position to be in at just 17 years old.

            Congrats to all the horses and riders! I'm kinda floored by how well Reed did-it's one thing to go through the trials, but it's insane that she ended tied for first with Margie!
            I like mares. They remind me of myself: stubborn know-it-alls who only acknowledge you if you have food.

                I had the same reaction!

                Count me in as a Reed fan as well, so cool under pressure and maintained such grace in her interviews!

                  Well, Cedric and Laura are a proven team, and Beezie is healthy, unlike McLain, so the placement make sense to me. It would be nice to have one inexperienced person on the team (Reed?) but certainly they want the big time experience in international competion that Laura and Beezie provide with their best horses.

                    McLain has started back in the tack, and the Olympics are still months away, so I'm not sure how much of a factor that should be.

                    There is plenty of time to see how things shape up to the games.

                      Wow, he's already riding again? I'm impressed - he must have really gone all out on the physical therapy!

                          But its not a final list, its just the list at this moment following the selection trials, lots of room to move up or down I would think. And McLain being back in the tack is not the same as being fit enough to withstand the kind of riding he needs to be capable of for the Olympics. If his rehab progresses rapidly hopefully he will move up the list.

                              Sapphire showed quite nicely at WEF just before Mclain got hurt.

                              Obviously the list will change as time marches on. I just thought the starting slots were interesting.

                                My favorite rider and horse are #1 and 2!

                                What are the chances of Reed actually going to the Olympics (if she continues to stay on top)? Because she is young and 'inexperienced' would she not be able to go despite her awesome results?

                                  Yes, but the first two observation events are the first and second weeks in May and the entries get made around mid June.
                                  So, no, not really that much time to see how things go.
                                  I'm sure everyone wishes that both McLain and Sapphire return to form but returning to competition is not the same as returning to previous form.

                                    By my calendar, mid-June is two and a half months away. Which is a pretty long time, in terms of a horse show season.

                                    We'll just have to see what happens.

                                      Sure but by my calendar the mandatory observation trials start the first week in May which would be 5-6 weeks away

                                      Each rider has to compete at least two of the four trials. Of course, a rider could wait till the last two trials but if there is any sort of horse or rider issue and the combo can't do 2 required trials that may be the end of the chances.

                                        I imagine Reed will probably be an alternate this year. Even with doing exceptionally well at the trials and if she continues at the same pace for the observation events she doesn't have the international experience of beezie, laura, or Margie. Hard to kick them out when they also did well, in Margie's case, and are proven with their mounts as beezie and Laura are. But if she continues to ride like she has you never know. And even if she doesn't go this year I imagine the next 4 years will only make her all that much better.
