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!

      CA is a ridiculous idea - it would be incredibly expensive for the East Coasters to get there.

      Although not as far away as CA, CO would also be out of reach for most folks in the NE and SE.

      Seems having them in the middle of the country makes the most sense. I like the KY horse park, because it is so accessible for most of the country. Lamplight is a little bit far for many folks, esp. those who would like to come observe. Besides, Lexington is a far more pleasant place for horse lovers than Chicago!

        Having been to both, Kentucky and Illinois for the young horse championships, my vote is for Illinois! Much nicer, classier, and horse- and spectactor-friendly than Kentucky.

        Just my opinion.... :-)

          KY is just as bad for anybody from the west coast! It involves a multi-day drive that generally requires a professional hauler, or an extremely expensive flight. There are a lot of wonderful riders in CA with excellent young horses who forego the YH championships on a regular basis because of the distance. It has always been fairly far east, it's about time for it to come somewhere accessible to west coast riders.

            I always find it odd the places people think are near the middle of the US.

            Are there any big venues in Kansas? Colorado, Oklahoma or Texas are the states which seem most likely to have big enough venues near the middle of the country. I say without any actual knowledge. I always think of Tulsa as the equitable place for competitions from my breed show days, but I don't have any idea what facilities are around these days.

                  You are right, it isn't in the middle of country. But it is closer to the middle than California.

                  Just saying, it isn't fair to easterners to have it in CA, just as it isn't fair to westerners to have it in PA, or VA. (And there are a heck of a lot of "eastern" based breeders/trainers involved in the Y/H programs.)

                  Wasn't USDF located originally in Lincoln NB, because it was determined to be the geographic "middle" of the US? Maybe they should have it there...

                  But if they insist on rotating it, then I would vote for CO over CA, just as I would vote for IL or KY over a more eastern state. Heck, why not move it around like the USDF convention? Of course, that would require show managers that were up to the task. Not an easy feat in some parts...

                    According to the USEF National Dressage Program Director, the 2013 USEF National Young Horse and Developing Horse Championships will be held at Lamplight Equestrian Center in Wayne, IL. It is a beautifully landscaped facility with extremely nice arenas and viewing pavilions.

                    The Dressage Seat Medal Championships will be held in Colorado. I am not sure of the venue.

                        I brought my mare to the YH championships when she was 4, 5 and 6 years old. We qualified all three years. It was an 800 mile drive for me from Atlanta.

                        Lamplight is a beautiful, well run facility with easy access to the rings from the barn area and plenty of spectator seating very close to the arenas. The food was fabulous and the help/organizers were the best.

                        While KY horse park is great, it is so big. Showing there is kind of like going to watch a pro baseball game in a stadium verses going to a smaller ball park where you are very close to the players. Or the difference between going to Belmont race track and Saratoga. Both venues are fine but I loved the park-like atmosphere of Lamplight. KY horse park was certainly much closer for me (I overnighted right across from the KYHP as a half way point), but Lamplight is well worth the trip. My horse was very relaxed at Lamplight.

                        So I vote lamplight! CA would have been out of my budget. Colorado
