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!

      Unfortunately, I cannot confirm or deny any New England results. However I believe that Wendy Wood won the Mass Finals a couple weeks back. She must be totally thrilled if she won NEHC too!

        Wendy won, Ellie Knight won the middles.

                It was a fun, challenging course today! The open eq was pretty straightforward, minus a tight-ish turn to the second jump. Most people rode it very nicely. For some reason, people were dropping rails left and right in the seemingly simple 3-stride line.

                The medal course was a bit more difficult, with a random jump at the end that tripped up some horses because they thought they were done. Lots of people were knocking down rails in the 1-stride.

                Both courses called for a very forward ride, and if you were under the pace, you'd get caught up. But it was really fun to ride!!!

                  Anyone know where we can find results? I'm interested in the horsemanship and junior medal that goes tomorrow...i think..

                    After the first round, the judges called back the top 25. Less than a point separated the top 2 riders. The second round included some bending forward lines that required riders to carry a pace and not get caught inthe corners. (especially the last line which was a skinny "stile" type fence bending forward 5 to a swedish oxer). After the second round, less than a point again separated Kelsey and Johanna. Then it was a drop of 6 or 7 points to the 3rd and 4th place riders. They hadn't tested the older and middle adults the day before so we weren't sure if they were testing. For the test of the top 2, the test included- counter canter fence 1, a trot jump, roll back on a jump, then hand gallop an oxer at the far end of the ring before cantering the in and out then halt, sitting trot to the gate, and walk out of the ring. Johanna went first and looked beautiful. Fence 1 to counter canter was a wide oxer rolling back toward the in gate. She chose to approach going left and lost the counter canter. Kelsey chose the right handed approach, had more impulsion for the first fence, and really galloped the hand gallop fence. Both girls did a beautiful job and should be very proud of themselves. The top 10 were really outstanding.
                    RIP Triple Take (aka Indiana )

                      Anyone have full results from the middles and olders?
                      Life would be infinitely better if pinatas suddenly appeared throughout the day.

                          Curious about the juniors too?

                            MA team 1 won the Challenge of the States, with NY in 2nd... that's all I know. I also know that Emma Johnson won a section of the 15-17 eq.

                            Sorry, not much help, but better than nothing, right?

                                Hi, I know this sounds like a dumb question, but I've always been curious as to what the Challenge of the States exactly is. Jumpers? Do you mind explaining? Thanks!

                                  It's equitation. On Saturday, there are open equitation classes and they take the riders with the top scores from each state to join their state's team for the Challenge of the States, held after all the open eq classes. I can't remember how many riders they take per team..it's been a while since I last went, but it's something like 4 riders and then 2 other riders "coaching". Riders walk the course themselves and warm themselves up with no help from people outside their team. And then they go in and all jump an equitation round and get scored, and the team with the most points wins.
