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.

  • Hunt Night/Warrenton Horse Show

    I saw many of you there last night but alas...I didn't stay to the end so don't know who won the Corinthian class and hunt teams and overall championship. Anyone know?!!
    I just can't keep up with that crowd like I used too!!
    I thought it was a HUGE crowd. Parking was all gone early! whew!!
    Only 2 brave masters in the Mfh class!
    Won by Jean Clark of Casanova. LOVED that white horse that won the gentlemens hack! Congrats to Penny Denegre Mfh/Middleburg for winning the side saddle division. A legend!
    Anyone know any class results?

    I liked the staff class the best....especially the "Hurricane Cleanup" kind of jump!! (verticle with branches all around & hanging from it that needed clearing before jumping it!) They had a gait, a holler, whipcrack. Won by a guy from Piedmont w/Mike Brown, huntsman,Rappahannock second.

      The little girl Lizzie/Lizzy (sp?) from Keswick won the Corinthian class. (I guess she's really not so little anymore, but I remember her each year in doing the team class with her dad, and she was so little the first time I saw her! lol) She rode beautifully and beat out some fine competition. We had to leave before the end of the hunt team class, so I'm not sure who won beyond that. Mostly likely someone from Keswick - they seemed to dominate the show in attendance this year!

      I agree with you about Gabby, the horse who won the gentleman's hack. Absolutely lovely, lovely horse. Was also a big fan of Richard Daley's Orion X. I can only dream that my horse will be half as talented someday!

      Also, I do have some bad cell phone photos of the evening, but my prizes of the evening are the two cell phone video clips I got of Richard Daley and Orion X winning the staff class and most of Michael Brown's second place round. I'll see if I can get them uploaded to youtube or something. They're on Facebook, but I'll see what I can do about putting them on a more public forum!

      Was it just me, or were there not as many hunts represented this year? As I said, there seemed to be LOTS of people from Keswick, which was fantastic, but I was surprised at the low numbers from some other teams. Also, the crowd didn't seem to be quite as big this year.

      ETA: Here is the link to the videos. My apologies for any talking, but we couldn't help but "awwwwing" over how Orion X "helped" by trying to close the gate latch.

        The entries were definitely down. The show hasn't run that quickly in my memory of the past 7 years!

        Personally, I only did 4 classes, and not the sidesaddle, as the judge did not seem favorably disposed towards my pinto. Mr. SSR only did a few early classes on my other mare, as they weren't getting along (it was his first time showing her, and she is a bit green in the show ring). Ah well, c'est la vie. We will be back next year, and I will let him ride my packer show/hunt horse.

          SSR, I'm glad you posted, because I really wanted to compliment your husband on what a lovely job he did in handling your young chestnut mare. She was obviously a little nervous and he rode her with a great deal of patience and persistence - my friend and I were so impressed by that. A lot of people wouldn't have handled it nearly so well. And in spite of how the judge might feel towards your pinto mare, she is still utterly stunning and is always such a good girl for you every time I've seen you show her!

                First, may I say it was a pleasure, as always, to see the effervescent and piquant Watery Glen at hunt night.

                Also, for Facebook users, Liz Callar has posted some pix on her page and the Warrenton Horse Show page has some others.

                    Beaus mom

                    I hunt with that horse and rider. Don't you just want to scoop up that Haffie and take him home? The owner is super nice. One of my horses is 17.2h and when I ride him beside the Haffie it's rather comical.


                    SSR... The judge isn't disposed towards color? What a shame.

                    I'd like to take the big horse next year.

                    Wateryglen, I saw you and meant to come over but you disappeared and then I couodnt find you. I stayed until the very end. It was nice to wrap up before the roosters started crowing!!!

                      I went to the Warrenton Horse Show page but didn't see any results for the hunt night............... and the gallery doesn't seem to have any pictures. I heard my friend Cathy Chambers did really well with Oscar and I was hoping to check it out. Did any one see her? REALLY BIG, really nice bay gelding. I know she won the hack and did well in the over fences classes.

                        equinedriver- we saw her! She did a lovely job, and that horse is one incredible beast.

                        wateryglen-- missed seeing you, must have been the haze that night. Erm, well the merlot induced haze anyway.

                        The haffie and rider-- I've hunted with her for 3 years- she is a wonderful woman, and those two are just like peas and carrots.

                        SSR-- I always feel like I'm watching rock stars when you and your husband ride!!! Hope to see you next year in the sidesaddle class--damn the pinto haters and full speed ahead! And.... I'm picking up my hunt whip from the engraver tomorrow!!! Yes, the one I bought from you!

                          Aw, shucks. Very sweet of you.
                          Here is a link to my pinto girl: http://www.lizcallar.com/p/warrenton...1/dsc_8446_9_8
                          She just jumps terribly, doesn't she?

                          I am so glad you like the hunt whip!

                            What's your secret on getting the white so white??? Bluing just isn't doing it for the clay stained high whites on my horse.

                              I never use bluing or a shampoo like QuicSilver on my horses. Rather, I have a two-step process which I have found to be more effective at getting the white clean:

                              1. Clean white markings with Orvus paste shampoo (the cow stuff). I don't use a sponge, but rather apply it directly to wet hair with my hand and then scrub in with my fingernails, making sure to get under the hair to the skin. Rinse.

                              2. Spray Simple Green on any heavily stained areas. Let the SG sit for 1-2 minutes. Wash off. (The SG is all-natural and gentle on skin, but VERY effective on dirt, so don't worry about your horse having a reaction to it)

                              If your horse is REALLY stained from the clay, then you have two options: 1) do the two steps above, but do it every day for a week or so; or 2) clip off the leg hair first with a pair of body clippers, and then do the two steps above.

                                I know nothing about sidesaddle so this may be a really stupid question...

                                What are the white gloves for? I see them tucked in the offside saddle flap on a couple of the photos.

                                  Thanks for the advice, SSR. Opening of Cubbing is this Saturday and Lurch is looking mighty dingy. If it EVER stops raining he'll get a good scrubbing.

                                    Those are rain gloves. They are a required appointment for the u/s class, and are to be tucked under the offside billets, thumbs together, fingers forward. During hunting, if it starts pouring and your leather gloves get wet, the reins can slide through your hands (remember, smooth leather -- no lacing), so you would pull out your rain gloves and put them on, and voila! you had grip again. If you are riding astride, you would tuck one glove under the billets on each side of the saddle, for an appointments class.
