Paying for on-line show entries??
I received an email from Horseshowing.com this afternoon saying they are now charging to do on-line entries. Are they really doing this or is it just a scam??
Thank you for creating an account for online horse show entry with Horseshowing.com.
You have submitted one or more entries to shows while the service has been free of charge this past year. Effective December 1, 2012 the cost for submitting entries to horse shows will be $1 per show day. A 1 day show will cost $1, a 2 day show $2, a 3 day show $3, a 4 day show $4, a five or more day show $5. The minimum purchase will be 5 show days, any unused days will remain available in your account. We believe this is a fair pricing model for the service.
There are quite a few shows online right now that can still be entered at no cost before December 1st. If you submit your entries before the deadline you will not be charged.
Another change that is coming December 1st is that some shows will be allowing you the option of using a credit card to pay any minimum deposit on your entries at the time of submission. This payment would go directly to the show management and would eliminate the need to mail a check for those shows that offer the use of credit cards. Whether or not the show allows credit cards is entirely the show management's decision, this is something we can facilitate but have no control over.
