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!

    The cutoff is proportional, so it depends on how many total show in all the regionals. Then they must do something like divide that into 150 and take the resulting fraction and multiply it by the number of people who compete in each regional. Not sure what they do about rounding since you can't sent a fraction of a person... Also not sure what happens if someone decided not to go--if s/he is replaced by the next person in the region or if there is a national waiting list.

    Rules here: http://www.alltechnationalhorseshow....egulations.pdf which say that the total number will be specified in the premium.

    Premium here, which specifies 150: http://www.alltechnationalhorseshow....PROOF-2012.pdf

    I think it was something like 60% last year. More than half but less than three-fourths.

      In the Region 8 (West Coast) class they announced the top 25 riders giving many the impression that they had made it. There were only 34 in the class. 25/34 = 73.5 which would seem like a really high amount to move on to the finals.

        I wondered about this too. I don't think they truly know until after all the regionals have been held. And, even after that, some people may decline. I have a friend who got to go at pretty much the last minute when someone decided not to go. Which meant that the leased horse she ended up with was, shall we say, interesting. They arrived only to be told by the grooms that he didn't like to jump without his hat.

          And how did that work out?

                About as well as you'd expect. The grooms also told them that the horse didn't like solid fences and that was one of the years with the solid hedge-looking thing. Not sure what this horse's milieu was supposed to be.

                She stopped out. Didn't even get half way around. And resolved to come back the next year with her own horse. Her mother described it as a valuable and expensive experience.

                    So that makes 170? Plus any people that don't yet appear as added to the region 3 & 4 classes (IIRC the total on horseshowtime for our region was 20-something a few days before the class, and 34 ended up showing). Plus what I assume are the two biggest regions.

                    Given that the riders have to declare an intent to do regionals (right?), someone out there should have pretty good idea of what the total number will be. Maybe not someone on the COTH BB. But someone.

                      Region 5 is definitely sending the Top 10, with #11 announced as an alternate. I would assume she'll head to KY also in case someone drops out. I know I would!

                      Congrats to the mom of #8 here, I'm glad I was able to give you a recap!

                        Keep in mind some kids might be starting college. Friend of mine moved her horse freshman year and chose to compete in the regionals closer to her school.

                          I was told 40% or 8 from Region 7. They handed out 9 ribbons. Guessing that means 8 plus an alternate.

                            Thank you. This is her first and last year to qualify and compete in the Maclay. She rides with Micaela Kennedy in Chesterfield, MO.

                              Just seems to be a complicated way of doing things.

                              Make it easy and take the top # (fill in the blank) from each zone. I like the # 12 as that is the cutoff for most classics. Makes it consistent.

                              and why are the regions a different number then the zones. Again-confusing.

                                While I agree that would be the easiest, it would also seem so unfair for the kids who compete in bigger regions. I think taking a percentage levels out the playing field, otherwise you can have 12 out of 20 kid from Colorado going (and possibly risk taking kids who had bad or unsafe rounds) and 12 kids out of 60 from Connecticut (where you might be leaving out some kids who really had the talent they just made minor mistakes).

                                    Zone X is California and Nevada. Zone XI is Hawaii and Zone XII is Alaska. Maclay Region 7 Northwest includes Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington and Wyoming. Maclay Region 8 West is California, Nevada and Hawaii. Not sure if there has ever been a qualified entry from Hawaii or Alaska.

                                      Which is exactly why it was changed from taking a set number. Used to be that Northeast Regionals (Zones I & II) took 50. I can't remember the numbers from the other regions.
                                      Life would be infinitely better if pinatas suddenly appeared throughout the day.
