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!

    Yes, but it is a disingenuous argument to say that the buyers were aware of the USEF record and that record made her eligible for 2nd year Greens, but were NOT aware that the horse already had a USEF registration number. Is it plausible that the horse's competitions at WEF did not come up in conversation during the sales process?

        • And another thing! That article makes the USEF sound so f%&$king incompetent I almost threw up in my mouth.

          What IS THE POINT of registration if such little (any?) documentation is required. And how can you forbid something but then put nothing in place to prevent it from happening?!

Winking at the European records of imported records - that's not good.
            Bold is mine.

            That sounds like a really wonderful excuse for horse shopping in Europe. Whatever they may have done over there magically goes away "poof," and they arrive on American soil several years younger and green, green, green.

            If I was an American breeder I'd really be royally PO'd.

            I'm on record that as soon as a horse has a record in shows he keeps the name he was originally registered with. Such a shame to erase all the breeding and all of the show record of this obviously very talented mare.

            • Ok, look at it this way.

              Without her competition record in Europe, she would not have been eligible for the CCI**s she did with Karen O'Connor.

              But with the competition record from Europe she wasn't eligible for the second year greens.

              So do I understand that people can pick or choose when they use the record or when they ignore it? Doesn't seem quite right to me

                Competing over 3'6" in 2011 makes her not 2nd year Green in 2013.


                Mokes no difference at all what height she competed in 2012.

                But if you are talking about a hypothetical horse that did NOT jump 3'6" + in 2011, then jumping 1.3m in 2012 would make her 1st year Green in 2012 and 2nd year Green in 2013.

                  Well put.

                  I love the part where they get all wide eyed and incredulous and go, "we had NO IDEA the three-day horses were REGISTERED??!"

                  Oh lol.
                  Like USEF would let an Olympic discipline happen without registrations.

                    It is not an excuse. It happens. One horse/one number/chipping the horse and looking into European records (the competition records CAN be transferred to USEF) is the answer. Changing a name isn't a big deal. Keeping the number, the breeding info is. I looked up Rose Hill - her name WAS changed. But look her up on USEF - sire, dam, breeder all there. New owners did it right.

                    • Well, newly imported Salto Mortale is in 1st year Green when he had been competing in Europe over 4' since 2010. He burst on the US scene a prodigy. So yes, US bred horses can be at a disadvantage, given their genuine greenness.

                      I'd also venture to guess that most European horses, certainly German ones, are started with pure dressage training. That would certainly reflect in their adjustability and rideability.

                                  Trust me on this - we are mad as hell. We've been mad as hell for years (and years, and years). We can get as mad as we possibly can, and it's not going to change a single thing. There aren't enough of us. The only thing that can affect change is when the majority of the rank and file get mad too, and understand that for the good of the sport, and for all future production of sporthorses in this country, breeders have to be able to track performance. And not just the good ones - we need to know about those horses we bred that are below par performers as well.

                                  But on this very thread, a judge stated that we (those that find this Amber Eyes RF incident a big, upsetting deal) disgust her. Because it's just a clerical thing....after all, the horse wasn't drugged, jugged, or dead. If there was ever one single post that told me in no uncertain terms this will never be fixed, that was the one.

                                      I think it would be a lot easier to just microchip everything, give the horse one microchip number, and have someone stand at each in-gate or start box with a sweeper wand to verify that the horse being announced is the same horse standing in front of him.

                                      Microchipping needs to happen.
                                      Many, MANY issues would be eliminated this way, from eligibility questions to age questions to prior ownership questions, etc etc, right even down to "so, how old is it, what has it really done, who is actually the owner of this horse I am buying, and can I contact this alleged owner to verify sale price". Imagine if the customers could just have the vet sweep a wand and then go online at USEF and find out alllllll that info!

                                      Which is probably why they haven't made it mandatory yet.

                                      • I dunno. I agree that's needed, but I was trying to cover AQHA as well. Just using a microchip still means that someone will have to access the records linked to the microchip. This way the onus for procuring those records is on the person recording the horse AND they can't claim innocence when caught. With this, they also have to check USEA records as well as foreign ones.

                                          But it doesn't have to be an "onus."
                                          If there is one microchip number, USEF while processing the registration (FOR WHICH THEY CHARGE), could actually lift a finger or two, type a number in, and have a look-see. Why make the person registering or re-registering both pay a fee AND do all the work? If we are going to take all of the required work away from USEF then what exactly are they charging $60 for?
