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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

  • Fair Hill 2019

    I know we are still about a month out, but Fair Hill first run of entries are in. Plantation is this upcoming weekend, so more will definitely be added after that.

    https://www.fairhillinternational.or...of-9-15-19.htm

    As I am sure you all know, Fair Hill is hoping to have the improvements for the 5* completed for the 2020 running of the event, so this year’s will (should) be the last at its current location.

    I was actually wondering about this, if they would still be hosting a 3*/4* at the current location and then the 5* at a separate facility? Or if the 3*/4* would not run anymore and it would just be the 5* at the new location?

    We have our hotel booked for 2019 already, so excited and will also be sad because we love that location.

      I believe they are running the 3*/4* along with the 5* at the new facility.

      https://eventingnation.com/maryland-...ure-five-star/
      this article says there will be a 3* and 5* in 2020 but not a 4*

      4* short will be the test event at the new facility in April 2020.

      Of course this is all subject to change based on construction...and may be outdated information so if anyone more IN THE KNOW has more recent information please chime in

      I had also read that Fair Hill is hoping to have shuttles set up so that spectators at the October event can go check out the progress of the new location.

        I was near where the new arenas will be in June and August, and there was a lot of earth moving going on at the turf track both times. It didn't seem like a whole lot of progress in two months, but they are definitely moving lots of dirt around.

              That won't be confusing at all considering there's another venue called The Maryland Horse Trials (Loch Moy)

              I'd be all about having the Maryland flag on everything though.. I'm one of "those" people

                Nope... just running the 3*-L and 5*-L in the Fall 2020. The 4*-L in the fall 2020 should be moving.

                      Bring bike or small car to get around. No motobikes allowed and it's a far walk from everything to everything

                      Also you neverrrr know what MD weather will be. Last year it was FREEEZING, today it's 90 degrees and humid.

                          Bring layers and waterproof footwear. Sometimes it's nice fall weather and sometimes it's freezing. I will probably wear my Dublin Huskers with warm socks and multiple layers on top. Last time I went I swear I lost 10 lbs from shivering because I wasn't prepared.

                          Also a portable phone charger is really nice if you like taking photos of everything. My battery phone would die in a few hours out there without a portable charger.

                          Also does anyone know if they take credit cards when you buy tickets at the gate? Or is it cash only?

                            Thank you!! I am flying in so will have to hoof it everywhere. Shouldn’t be too bad with only 4 horses though! We just had 11 at StableView I plan to bring the entire contents of my closet from summer to winter clothes! Grabbed a pair of Dubarry knock offs as well.

                            I fail at multi-quote, but skipollo thank you for that suggestion! I will throw two portable chargers in my bag just in case.

                              The rider I’m working for said it’s easy and 45 min. That’s where I’m flying into.

                                Philly is the closest major airport and is pretty much a straight shot down 95. But 45 min is a wee bit optimistic at most times of day. Doable at an off time, but reality makes it more like an hour or more to the grounds when there’s traffic.

                                    You will hit one toll coming out of Delaware unless you get off and cut over sooner.
                                    I am not going to be around for the weekend due to really poor timing of our 30th anniversary trip but am volunteering on Wednesday as a jog steward so I will get to see every horse up close and personal. I guess that is the next best thing to being there for the competition.

                                      Get off at the Newark DE exit to avoid the toll. From there there are a few different ways to go and if you’re following GPS you’ll be fine. All routes are about the same time wise.

                                      If you have time between the 4 horses, head over to the Saw Mill field to watch the YEH jump phases. There’s mimosas involved.

                                      Lots of walking but there are also volunteers on golf carts and in vehicles to assist grooms with getting from stabling to the vet box for XC day.

                                      Get the crab bisque.

                                      Good luck to your horses & rider!
