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!

  • favorite videos of top hunters?

    I am not from the hunter world (I'm a cross over from eventing/racing) but I have so much admiration for the way you guys can ride such a beautiful round that I am trying to learn some of those skills myself. I think it would really help to be able to watch some top hunters go round, maybe get a chance to study it a bit more. Can you post links to the best, rounds that you guys admire or think would show me something I could learn from? Thanks in advance, I truly appreciate the help.

    I've always admired Strapless:

    The video is not great quality, and it is probably not one of very best trips, but its still really really good.

      This isn't the trip I was looking for (wanted the WEF WCHR class), but Early Applause is one of the nicest ones out there right now: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQUy_AInAvI .

        always loved strapless as well, unfortunately this was not one of her best rounds. as for early applause, i'm glad you qualified your post chanda, it was not a round that impressed me. in fact the horse is getting worse and maggie will never be the hunter rider kelly is, ever. what is with the head singing, the sailboat reins and the cowboy look. the horse will be done in a year, if that long. upshot is a nice horse. larry should do a little chemistry lesson with alex.

            Well, most of us will never be the rider that Kelley is, precious. But it's still a lovely horse.

                Also - my youtube channel is the one with the Strapless video (sorry about the quality, I videotaped it off the TV!), I have a few videos from WEF of good (and not so good!) rounds mixed in with my own riding videos. This round I got of Katherine Newman is very nice, especially the outside line from 50sec-1:05 in the vid... textbook! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rfgwLTQVoRc

                  I felt the same way after watching that video of "Early Applause." The finesse and elegance just wasn't there. ...although I do applaud her on her win! A nice round at that.

                  I have been watching that "Upshot" for a bit now. What a truly lovely hunter!!

                      Gosh, if riding that bad will finish a horse off in a year, I am damn lucky my horse is still going after 3 lessons, much less four seasons. She might not be as elegant as Kelley is, but she found the jumps, I don't think she caused any hardship to the horse.

                          I'm glad somebody said something before I did. That video was totally weird. I get seriously yelled at when I ride with my hands in my lap and cross them back and forth over the horses neck like that. She looks like she is a lovely rider but those hands flopping and flailing all over the place was strange.

                          Glad to hear it's not correct, even for the pros.

                            That was the Derby winner at Showplace? Glad I finally saw the round.

                            The horse jumps around beautifully, no denying that. But is not something I'd call particularly "handy", unless the definition of handy is now successfully negotiating a course one rein at a time. Looks like a big ole leg ride, any contact is too much contact and momentum through the turns requires a fully seated position. A lovely *show* hunter, if you will. I thought these Derbies were supposed to promote the light easy gallop, the forward seat and, most importantly, responsiveness and maneuverability? ie, handiness? Hmmmm. Anyone see the other rounds?

                                Most of us will never be the rider Maggie is, either, by a long shot. precious sounds like s/he has an ax to grind.

                                What is classically correct and what is done are sometimes two different things. Hopefully, if one is riding a horse that goes best with your butt in the tack, you butt will be in the tack. If he goes best with floppy reins, you ride with floppy reins. We'd all love it if every horse went the same, but they do not. My guess is EA doesn't want a lot of contact so Maggie rides him that way. A good rider can tailor their ride to their horses needs.

                                      When/why did Maggie get the ride on Early Applause?

                                      On a side note, I would have though a more forward seat would have been warranted if they are trying to bring some of the "old" school charm of the handy courses/outside courses back. Nonetheless, lovely horse and regardless of your opinion of the rider's style, the horse certainly found the fences and jumped beautifully.

                                        Maggie's client bought Early Applause at the end of FL. Maggie was champion on him at Devon in the green conf. He also shows in the juniors.
