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.

  • COTH photo from the World Cup, Silvana making a break for ingate- how'd that happen?

    Here's the link to the picture in question.

    Did anyone watching FEI TV see how this came about?

    I guess she didn't like her ribbon much.

      Back in the day, IIRC, some international stars chose to ride another for ribbon or medal presentations when thet either did not want to bring them back out or knew they would not stand for such foolishness. And I have seen a pretty big name rider get dumped picking up a GP ribbon and cooler so perhaps there is some sense to that.

      Seems Silvana is reminding one and all she was DONE when she went thru the timers I think we can forgive the great ones their eccentricities.

        Eh. Stuff happens with horses. If she absolutely had to misbehave in the ring, she picked the best time all week to do it. At least this one cooperated when it counted!

          She looks very casual about her departure in the picture.

            For sure. Lovely mare.

            I am hoping that she spared her rider the indignity of having been bucked off after coming third, and instead broke away from a handler while he was on the podium. I don't know much about how presentations at an event like that work.

              The fact that there is no lead shank on her and the stirrups are down would make me think either he was on, or getting on/off. Otherwise I would expect the stirrups to be run up during the awards. But that's just a guess.

                I remember Rich Fellers did this at Spruce and rode Mika for the awards ceremony instead of bringing Flexible back out.

                Also, anyone know anything about those stirrup leathers? I'm curious because I can see a metal ring and then the leathers look like they are in two parts. I've never seen that before.

                      Hmm I made it through most of the ribbons...and the top three standing on the podium...so this must have been after that, once they remounted and did the actual victory gallop, but can't say for sure.

                              I agree with this...particularly because of the faces made by those in the stands. I'm not sure they would be as dramatic if it was a breakaway from someone already on the ground.

                                This horse is lovely.

                                I think they should do away with the victory gallop. Or just keep the winner in. I don't see the sense in having horses in the ring "running" around with other horses that are probably more used to being in a show ring solo. Too many chances for injuries to horse or rider. I like the IDEA of the victory gallop, but the reality is so different. A lot of those horses do not look happy doing that. JMHO.

                                  Great picture. She has THE most casual expression on her face - like she is out for a Sunday canter in the park. I am now also curious as to what happened! Hope rider is okay.

                                    Yes. So contrasting to the look that the spectators have.

                                      It was a LONG and LOUD ceremony. They don't show a fall here, but I'm wondering if it happened after the awards podium and during or before the final victory gallop. What a fun crowd, though. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_gLLKVhJd0

                                      She was actually quite calm for most of it. She started getting a little jazzed during the anthems when the flags were going up. And there were two "honor guard" type riders in the dark corner on greys (Andaulsian/Lippizan?). But I bet it happened before that final lap. LOUD crowd.

                                        since her groom didn't use a lead rope, it could have been before Kevin got back on her as well (was a bit of a gap in that tape between final part of podium and Beezie's final lap)
                                        Your crazy is showing. You might want to tuck that back in.
