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!

  • AQHA Select (over 50 yrs) webcast - fence classes

    This is the World Show only for amateurs over 50 years of age.

    Finals of the flat eq and (I think) prelims of the working hunter are this afternoon. Tomorrow (Sunday) starts with trail finals then all the other fence classes. If they do not run WH prelims this afternoon, it will be tomorrow. Start time is 9 am eastern.
    The HUS finals, just concluded, had all very nice movers with no 'wenglish'. Flat eq will have some western-type cross-over all-around horses, though.

    Webcast is much better quality through a different source:

    For all that people bash on AQHA, I wish my position was half as still as some of these riders. Thanks for posting!

        ETA: One of my favorite horses, Darn That Cat, just packed his youth rider's dad/relation(?) around the Eq/OF course. Nice horse.
        Further ETA: He won it!

              I would love to watch this, but Hughes Net has a bad habit of deciding I have gone over the threshold if I watch streaming videos and then they basically shut me down for 24 hours! SO I don't dare watch

                Only 24 hours? Totally worth it.

                Several men in the jumping and a few in the hunters also. Nice.

                    One of the ladies at our barn won the horsemanship! Congrats Theresa and Lopin On Easy Street!! Good luck with trail finals sunday

                    She's awesome at english eq as well but they decided to focus on fewer events at World and so far it has paid off.

                      I watched a lot of this show, as I had planned some drafting to do near the computer. It was a very nice show - horses looked natural and relaxed (even WP, for the most part) and the riding level has risen quite a bit from the initial show several years ago. The first years' fence classes had a lot of creaky riders grabbing mane over fences. This year, there were 14+ very accomplished riders in every over/fences class. Even the jumping was not scary. If you live in range of Amarillo, Texas (although several riders from North Carolina and Florida were there), and are 50+, this show is a fun goal - only a couple points needed to qualify in the fence classes.

                      The Trail was won by an older gentleman. His wife won the W. Pleasure on a horse they had bred and raised. What a cute couple, who horseshow together. The Eq. Over and Jumping were won by a veterinarian father (definate eye-candy vet) on his wife and daughter's horse (Darn That Cat - fabulous, solid, kind horse) that the family keeps at home.

                        Plum, there were some great interviews done that didn't get published yet, including one with DTK's rider! Hopefully they will show up in the future--these are people with a lot of life experiences and incredible senses of humor. Everyone who goes to this show wants to return, and laid-back is the term most use to describe it. I asked my daughter if it was like a ghost town when they showed, as they are the last classes after a long week, and she said that many, many of the other competitors stayed just to watch and cheer on the over fences riders. AQHA was genius in offering the Select division.

                          Just a jingle and a bump for Clifford Hodge and his horse Tiger "Overseas Asset" .
                          Cliff is a student of mine and has worked his butt off to get there, im really proud of him!
                          Also congratulations to Dr. Myers and "Darn That Cat", amazing horse, they are a very lucky family to have such a nice mount.

                            I feel your pain!! I have HughesNet too. I have never been shut down, but I lose connectivity fairly reguarly. For what we pay for this service ($90.00 a month, what a ripoff), they should let us have unlimited viewing.

                            Maybe a HughesNet person is a COTHer and will make note of some unhappy clients!

                            For what it is worth, I could not find any video highlights of actual hunter trips, there was an interview, which was nice to see though. The still photo of Lori was great...

                              We QH people need to complain about the lack of actual footage on the winner interview. People want to see the winning trip. AQHA used to include some footage, but now seem to want to get the class winner interview posted as fast as possible.
