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!

  • Congrats!! Stonehill College going to IHSA Nationals-

    returning to the arena where we won Nationals in 2003 - Murfreesboro TN~!!

    Go Hill!!

    ETA_ I am at work and don't have any other details on the other team going from Zone 1. I am sure Zones was very competitive-
    Bring the Cacchione Cup home Zone 1 !!!
    RIP Triple Take (aka Indiana )

    we have two people going form my school!!!

      Mount Holyoke is the other team from Zone 1 going to Nationals. The standings were very close all day and you didn't know until the last class if Stonehill or Brown got second....very nervewracking! The flat classes were long and the judge really tested them.


      • #4
        Yay Stonehill!!!! I actually applied there and got accepted and it was one of my top choices, but I decided on a school closer to my house. I am so bummed now. That is such a great school and I am really glad they are doing well equestrian wise.

          I was at the Zone 2 Cahmpionships today to cheer on my New Paltz and Centenary people! We have a New Paltz rider who made it to Nationals!

            Who were the top two teams?

              Good Luck to Eddie and Virginia Intermont today at their Zones and to Jon Conyer's Sweet Briar Team. UNC Charlotte has a rider at Zones- good luck!

              Word is - there is a BENDING 2 stride today- (at least it was in place for yesterday's warm up- not sure if it is in the show today or not. Awaiting reports.)
              RIP Triple Take (aka Indiana )

                Does anyone have any results from Zone 3? I'm abroad for the semester so I don't get a lot of feed back on how my region does (Region 3). Does anyone know if WVU made it to nationals?

                  I think centenary was one of them from zone 2


                  • #10
                    I was there. Anyone find the flat classes a little...... strange? With all the circles and quickfire changes of gaits??


                    • #11
                      And one of our riders is going to nationals individually, YAY!


                      • Original Poster

                        RhodyRam- do you mean Zone 1 finals? With Michael Page judging?? Circles, direction changes, transistions- not surprising. He picks riders not posers. Anyone hearing who the judge was should have practised and been prepared for EVERYTHING and not been surprised with a change of direction- in reverse, hearing "Halt" as the first command after "you are being judged at the walk" (instead of " trot") etc. ... He has judged these Zones many times and, even though I was not there, it sounds like he was classic Micheal Page from when I took a team or two to Zones ..

                        Congrats on getting a rider thru to Nationals!!! Your whole team should be very proud- I hope a cheering section from your school is able to go and show their support.

                          Update from Zone 4. Teams competing-VI, Sweet Briar, Mary Washington. Team Open flat class running now- cutthroat- very tough competition. Have to go ride but will update after that.

                          Heard Centenary and Cazenovia were going for the NY Zone. Congrats!!

                              I'm going individually! It's the first time anyone from my school has qualified and I am really excited to be able to represent them!

                                Well our school gives us barely any money to send her so I don't there will be room for anyone but her and our coach.

                                      Does anyone know any of the individual results from Zone 1 zones? I'm particularly interested in open and alumni. Thanks!

                                        touchstone, I can't remember the results off the top of my head (wasn't really paying attention because we didn't have riders in alumni or individual open) but the class by class results should be up on campusequestrian.com later tonight.
