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!

    Finals start this afternoon, in a couple hours appx., with WP, HUS, Flat EQ., then Eq. Over, Hunters, and Jumpers. You can click on 'Results - finals qualifiers", to see who is in the finals.

    This link is the schedule page - click on 'Live Webcast' on the red band at the top. It will ask for your email, but you will not get spam, just occasionally a horse sale webcast notification, and you can opt out of that.

    This show is supposed to be fun. Besides the show classes, there are dance parties (show has as many boys as girls), a talent contest, a speech contest, and a stall decorating contest by state.

            Note to self - 50 pounds of fake tail NOT braided in is REALLY distracting for a hunter person to watch. 50lbs braided in is still distracting in its own way but not nearly so mesmerizing...
            Your crazy is showing. You might want to tuck that back in.

              For a minute I was thinking one of the horses tails was going to knock a rail down on its own.

              I like seeing the QH jumpers at that level vs. the pleasure horses.
              To be loved by a horse, or by any animal, should fill us with awe-
              for we have not deserved it.

                147 in the Eq over Fences
                108 in the Working Hunter
                30 in the jumpers.

                Eq class was a nice course with lots of bending lines and a trot fence at the end. Got tired of watching it so I left the show. Might run back over later to catch the jumpers.

                  I keep wanting to yell SIT UP to some of the riders. Perchin ain't going to help your out on finding a good distance coming out of the bending line.

                  However the efficiency of getting riders in and out of the ring should be noted and applauded. Gosh if only that ever happened at the rated h/j shows...

                    Big difference with only ONE ring going at a time. Also if you are not ready to go they will just move on and you are out of luck.

                      ah. yes well then that will do it.

                      However, the whole snooze you lose policy? I wouldn't mind that being a more active policy at h/j shows...

                        I'm confused as to what happened to the rider who just fell off. I looked to me like the horse spooked after she hit the ground. Something just didn't look right to me. Almost looked like she passed out before she hit the ground, but that could just be the way the video looks, mine is kind of choppy in places. Did anyone else think it looked weird?

                          Do the qh folks not count the jump itself as much as h/j folks?

                            the class this AM was an eq class, so for sure not in that one!

                              I'm impressed with the turnout of the horses, and the lack of headsets. I do think many of them(the horses) look unhappy and overschooled particularly in the corners. But we see the same things in the hunter world as well.
                              Can you stress-fracture your brain?

                                Correct. Of the 5 judges, one or two may be 'Specialty Over Fences' judges. The others are all around QH judges, and they tend to reward the whole trip that is smooth and flowing with sometimes sort of flat jumping efforts. Consistency and obedience are more important to them then the round jumping effort. Think of it as more 'pleasure over fences'. Hopefully more dual USEF/AQHA carded judges in the future (there are only 13 now out of the 26 specialty judges) will improve this.

                                  Anyone watch number 1492 Katie Valentine on That Louisiana Magic go or number 1179 Bret A Pilney on My Moody Blues? I have missed all their rides! They are friends of mine and I am starting with their trainer once they get back from OK.

                                    I could not agree more.

                                    I just can not believe those tails do not knock rails down.

                                    Wow!

                                      A little trivia: Plumcreek, number 414, She's Got The Blue, was in our barn last year, and was Pre Green champ one week at one of the Colorado shows. She was sold to a young lady from California who shows her very successfully in the small juniors. She's made the finals of the eq over at the AQHYA show, and in a few minutes we'll find out if she returns for the working hunter finals--she seemed to have a pretty nice trip, but I can't hear rubs on the webcast, and we know that can be a big deal

                                        I thought that name sounded familiar. I have only watched sporadically, but the overall quality of horses/riders seems much improved. Sparky, seems Tommy McIntyre is still in due dilligence phase on High Prairie.
