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!

  • How to qualify for devon?

    How do you qualify for devon and what are some classes a junior can do and how to qualify for them?
    :] thanks

    If you do the 3'6" equitation (Medal, Maclay, USET, WIHS) you do not have to qualify. The eq isnt easy though, you have to be prepared for finals level courses and scary jumps. Hunters are hard to get in for.... you need about 3000 points which is pretty much 15 champions in the Junior Hunters at an A or AA show

          Just 3'6 and up. They have local hunters which are 3'-3'3ish and open to anyone who lives in a 40 mile radius of Devon, no qualifying.

                To meet the qualifying date for the junior classes, you almost HAVE to show a winter circuit, mostly Ocala and WEF.

                  You don't need to qualify for leadline. Though, it helps if you have a really fancy pony, adorable child with braids and a top trainer to lead them! Some people pay trainers who they don't use to take their child in. I also know that one mother got her two children hair extensions so that they would have longer braids to wear. It gets a little ridiculous but it's fun and cute!

                        Just some technical aspects:
                        There is no set point-cut off for the hunters or jumpers. How many points it takes each year depends on who enters and how many horses they take for the division. Each division in the prizelist lists the number they will take for that division, generally around 30. If you want to be considered you must enter by the closing date of entries. The prizelist is online if you don't receive one. After everyone enters they go through and send letters of acceptance those with the most points (points are counted from your top fifteen horse shows between the closing date of entries of the previous year until the closing date of entries for the current year, the exact dates vary but it's generally around April 1st -April 1st) until they get to that set number of horses. That is then the point cut-off. Then, if some of the accepted entries choose not to go (you must respond to your acceptance letter) or scratch, they take the next horse with the most points, and so on.
                        Your points come from USEF rated shows, and you and your horse must be USEF recorded to receive them.

                          thanks for all the replys i was just wondering how do you qualify for indoors?

                            Same way, the entry closing dates are just different. And for the eq the classes at indoors are finals and each has it's own qualifying rules, as do the childrens and adult finals offered.

                              Also although it helps to get points at the winter circuits(WEF or Ocala) because there are more participants so you get more points, (and you get used to the competition and scary courses) some people manage to qualify in the A shows up north because there is less competition and you can win but then you might no be prepared for the tough competition. But if you just want to qualify to one of those finals that is one way.

                                That is completely incorrect. Leadline is open to all, and you can just show up and enter.

                                  I'm guessing I'm the only one who gets that you are kidding, based on one of the other threads on here today.

                                    I didn't read Ajierene's post as a joke, there was nothing to indicate it was meant as one ("LOL," smiley face or tounge in cheek face, ::sarcasm::, etc.). Tone does come across well on the internet. I also don't cross reference every other thread on the board to see whether there might be some inside joke I don't know about. Lots of people read here and take as gospel what is written, I wouldn't want a potential leadliner scared off because they believe there is some qualification process.

                                      geez, I would have been scared off just from the wording. "...need to ribbon..."

                                      If it had read "you need to place in the ribbons at 3 or 4 shows.. " THAT I could understand

                                        *snork* the fact that every child IN leadline gets "a" ribbon would be a clue!
                                        Your crazy is showing. You might want to tuck that back in.
