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!

      I just asked my parent for one of these for my birthday after I watched this video!

      This is so awesome!

        That is the first time I have jumped 4'3". It felt great! LOL

          a) I heart helmet cam

          b) Just a quick FYI that from the first time my guy jumped a single 4'3" jump to his first 4'3" class was roughly 3 months....so August? September on the outside? I say fast forward through all of that pesky "training" stuff and just skip to the fun stuff!

            Mr TR was there and made me do the big jump again a couple times. The last little clip of the video, Aero jumped it clear over the top of the standards which are 5 ft and kicked out behind.

            My toughest critic, Mr TR, was actually impressed! I'm super excited about Aero. We'll be doing the 3' low hunters on Saturday at a show. LOL.

              That seems like a long time ago now. It sure is a long haul with these babies but now it's really starting to get fun!

                Thank you for allowing me to live vicariously through you.

                  That was great!

                  I felt a bit nervous going into the outside line. I felt I was getting left behind, I was not prepared for it

                  Good Luck at your show!


                  • #10
                    How fun! I love the parts where the sun is behind/beside you and your shadow can be seen on the ground. Really neat!

                    And not that I'm encouraging you to fall, but it would be really wild to see a first-person perspective on a helmet-cam fall!


                    • Original Poster

                      I'm sure that it will happen that Aero will jump me out the tack over one of the big jumps at some point in the future. Yesterday he gave two really big efforts that took me a bit by surprise. It's been a long time since I had one that jumped that powerful.

                        From the helmet-cam perspective, it looks like a very smooth ride. You stay in the tack very well. If I was wearing the cam, you'd see a lot of bobbing around and a lot of neck on the landing lol. Thanks for posting these. They're a lot of fun!

                          Love the helmet cam rides!! I also felt left behind on the last outside line--I must have been worried, lol.

                                  Helmet cam..fun as always!

                                  I kept trying to leg yield in to keep from going onto the grass. I'd have such an issue riding in your ring because of that. Like it's some huge sin to go outside the "ring"

                                    HAHA! I know all about that! With the wee young ones I make it a point to keep them "in the ring" and to only go in and out via the "entrance". But with the others I'll set fences out in the grass, gallop out of the ring and out around the pond and back in, or all the way around the back paddocks.

                                    It's nice that I can go from my 100 x 200 sand arena to using as much of the property as I like. I used to want a fence around it but now I really like the freedom of being able to use as much space as I like. Plus when you're out in those BIG show rings, you don't get the benefit of a fence anyways, as MR TR likes to point out to me.
