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!

  • RPSI stallion book

    Can someone tell me how this works? A friend is looking at a stallion approved only by RPSI. He is 10 years old, and from what we can tell, has never done a stallion test. He does have a few scores at PSG, but they range from 57% to 63%, and are from several years ago - apparently hasn't shown since then.

    So basically my question is - what are the RPSI performance requirements for Book I stallions? I can't find them on their website, and we are wondering why a 10 y/o stallion is still listed in book I with RPSI when he has not met what other German registries would consider full performance requirements. Someone told me that RPSI had reciprocity with its mother registry in Germany (RPS), but it seems this would be in violation of German breeding law. Or does the reciprocity only apply to horses that meet the full German requirements?

      Double check with RPSI. A friend had inquired before about a stallion with them as she was looking at one of it's foals and found out that though the stallion is listed in book 2 it's paperwork isn't complete, he's not competing, never did the stallion testing, and none of the foals had been issued papers even though they'd been inspected and branded.

      IMO it kinda sounds like a wishy washy registry if they go ahead and put stallions in their books and leave them there even though they don't complete their testing etc and they have several stallions the other registries won't approve for one reason or another.

          Thanks, Ronda! I didn't see that on the RPSI site. So according to this document - for 7 year old and older Stallions

          • With appropriate inspection scores and appropriate PRIOR test and/or performance results, entered into Stud Book I
          ��To maintain Stud Book I licensing –
          o Return DNA & Veterinary Certificate within 30 days
          o Present documentation of proof of prior test and performance requirements at inspection (30-day test plus 5 or 6 year old performance results, 30 day test plus 70 day test, or older stallion performance results)

          Performance Requirements for Older Stallions (over age 6)
          • DRESSAGE – ZZZ level / Prix St. Georges
          ��5 placings of 1st through 3rd with scores of 60% or higher at Prix St. Georges at a USDF sanctioned show

          Stallion in question is 10 y/o. He has never done a performance test. He only has three scores of 60% or higher at PSG. He placed 2 of 3 one time, 6 of 6 one time, and 3 of 6 one time.

          It appears he does not meet the requirements to maintain his Book I ranking. So I guess we are confused as to why he is still listed in Book I.

            That's why he's in Stallion Book II...because his performance requirements haven't been met. It's clearly stated on their website: http://www.rhpsi.com/stallions/stall...vevsrecord.asp

            Taken directly from the RPSI website:
            "Stallions also may be placed in Stud Book II if they have not yet completed their 30-day test, and while waiting for the completion of their performance requirements. These stallions are eligible for upgrading to Stud Book I upon final completion of performance requirements.The word APPROVED should not be used or interpreted in any context with regard to stallions RECORDED in Stallion Book II."

            I know what you're saying about incomplete paperwork though. That's a question I would take up with the RPSI.
