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!

  • Maclay Regionals results?

    There were no fewer than FOUR regionals yesterday (Central, Mountian, Northwest, and West) and not a peep on here about results.

    C'mon people, fulfill your civic duty and give us Eq groupies something information!

    I believe Tess Fortune on Double Delight won in Mason City IA. She trains with Kyle Dewar in Oconomowoc Wi. at Chestnut Hill Farm.

      Zone 10: 1. Cayla Richards 2. Theodore Boris (whom 99% of the people there thought should have won) 3. Jocelyn Neff 4. Saer Coulter 5. Lucy Davis 6. Gabbi Langston 7. Olivia Esse 8. Samantha Harrison 9. Demi Stiegler 10. Sophie Verges. Really nice forward course that you couldn't ride as a perching passenger, and way more refusals than you'd have expected, but all in all a much better group of rides than in the past few years.

        Results from last night's regional in Missouri. Phoenix Mom, there is no regional in Mason City. That would have been a regular Maclay qualifiying class.

                  Mountain Regional:


                  I watched the class and sorry, I do not know the junior riders and did not have anything to write with. A very nice rider was second on a wonderful bay that could not have been over 15.2 hands. The winner's horse was flawless and flowing - what a nice ride! What I really liked about the class was the 4 workoff riders had to go to a remote corner right out of the flat work and do the verbally described workoff course without coaching or talking to each other.

                  The work off course was: Hand gallop out of line up directly to the 1st, counter canter a tight 3/4 circle to the 2nd, canter up to a turn leaving a few strides to trot the 3rd fence, then a 4 stride or so to a wingless skinny 4th, halt. Then canter straight up the center with 3 changes of lead back to the line up corner. There were 12 - 14 in the class and announcer said 3-4 would go on.

                    Rounding out the top ten (ditto on the Theo Boris comment, BTW) as copied from a list at the back gate.

                    Thirty five showed of the 36 entered. The course, IMHO, was a good balance b/w last year's course (too easy, possibly in reaction to the carnage the previous year) and the one two years ago. You had to flow, use your eyes and not stop riding. There were a few kids that were a bit green, but the riding was overall quite good. My trainer did comment on the relatively large number who looked down to check their diagonal in the jumping phase.

                    The flat work was the usual disappointment (W-T-C, sitting trot). They hacked in two groups. The first group was the lower scores and had 17+ (not sure--they read the numbers too fast for me to get all of them). Second group was 14 riders. There wasn't much movement in the top group after the flat, assuming they were called back in order.

                    There was a work-off of the top five! The top two were both good and stayed in the order called in. Jocelyn moved up to third when two of the five had counter canter issues.

                    Course diagram posted--not 100% sure of workoff.

                    Sorry about the lack of prompt reporting, but I got home from the Oaks at 11 pm and had an 8 am lesson this morning.

                      Great reporting as usual Peggy. Looking down to check diagonals at that level is NQR good call from your trainer.

                        It was a big eye-opener, all those kids checking them. And, sadly, a few VERY poor sports. And, sadly, mama chimin' right in with one of them. Jolly bad form, that.

                          Having been to lots of shows and having seen many of the riders on this list compete I can only imagine whose mama was chimin in - probably can actually guess. My daughters love for the eq arena diminished early on and I can't say that I am really all that sad about it.

                            No, probably can't on this one actually. But feel free to PM me with your guess and I will tell you if you are right or not!

                              Your excellent report (and bonus point for posting the course and the test) earns you forgiveness.

                                this weekend is zone 1 and zone 2, are there any others left to run?

                                  Is there a list anywhere of who's qualified for Zone 1 and Zone 2 regionals? I'm hoping to make it up to both this weekend, broken elbow and all! I've suckered my dad into taking pictures while I video tape. Our new camera is far too big for me to use with one hand!

                                  Did any COTHers qualify?

                                      what kind of camera are you using for videoing> My daughter is riding a new horse - first lesson is tomorrow! and competing at Westbrook, and one of the stipulations is I video the rounds for the owner! I don't have a working camera so need to get one quick and don't know what to get!!
