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!

    How much you wanna bet no refund if the thing is cancelled?


    Where is the responsibility?


    Asking for a friend ;-)

    Looks like the pony finals did the right thing. Thoughts ?

    Why do you feel the need to write "Kellerhouse" instead of naming the event?

      Because if you live in California, it's cheaper and easier than dragging your ass to Montana. Not to mention it's probably a bit more civilized.

      Looks quite nice; http://woodsideeventing.com/about-th...de-hores-park/

        A thorough COV19 protocol is shown on the Woodside HP site. Stanford Med is 5 minutes away, if nec.

        Like RF, Galway ran last month without issues. At RF the announcer gently corrected non compliers (masking). A completely different clientele from PF. Actually a completely different planet. Oh and it's not too late to volunteer if you'd like to help. No spectators are allowed so this is your chance to watch your friend do xc.

          I agree, I'm volunteering at a HT next weekend that is doing every single thing in their power to be compliant, and to make sure nobody ruins it for everybody else. Until the USEF or the states say no horse shows, as long as horse shows are 100% compliant with all mandates, why not? If you don't feel safe going, don't go. If someone goes, ask them to stay away from you for 2 weeks. If you go to a show wear a mask. Follow the rules. Don't go see anyone who is ill or elderly until you know you are safe.

              Hard to get “more civilized” than Rebecca Farm. First class event in a fabulous setting. I’ve been privileged enough to be on the officiating staff there the last two years.

                    I will be competing at Woodside (the event mentioned) next week. An email was sent out today outlining the protocol for the weekend. It’s extremely strict, well beyond anything that we experienced at Twin Rivers several weeks ago, which was very well run. It will be an adjustment to wear masks 24/7 and not be allowed to have any family/friends in attendance, but it should make for a peaceful, quiet competition environment.

                      It was Robert's decision to have such a big show and Woodside is much smaller than Rebecca, Twin or Galway.
                      Who wants to lay bets that if locals, county or State shuts this shit show event down that nobody gets money back?
                      Why are so many events cancelling but not Robert, check out the list for yourselves at USEA. The pony finals were just shut down but Robert has just gotta push the envelope.
                      Let's also talk about where the virus is rampant in California and the fact that Robert and others are coming from So-cal to Nor-cal where death numbers are lower currently.
                      California, Texas, Florida all HOT zones so lets horse show in those states NOT... Many in the community got to hear how Galway started off awesome and then show became lax about protocols with so many not having temp checks and office becoming crowded. WE won't be adding to the debacle and will be skipping Woodside this time to think about others not just our own selfish goals.

                          I know nothing about this event or its details or this Robert person you seem to not like. I just want to say that comparing a local type event to pony finals is not really a fair comparison. Pony finals brings people from all ends of the whole country. You might note that AEC's are not cancelled, so if you are going to compare an event to an event....

                              Well well well. Since I live in and participate 'in the community' and my CDS chapter just had our July triple rated at Galway with Robert and our own good management and there was complete compliance and I have not heard one word about any issues at the event, I can only wonder what bee is in your bonnet regarding Robert, Galway, and compliance. What a provocative ill meant post and to what end I wonder. If you have some spleen that needs venting why dont you wait and see and then take up any refund issue with Robert.

                              Your ill mannered sneering implying what exactly, that Robert is running the show so he can get the income and then cancel and keep the entries? Pretty underhanded and inappropriate.

                                Playing devils advocate, I neither know the venue nor the OP. However, considering things are being shut down right and left, it does make one scratch one's head when similar venues are cancelling that anyone would plan a big show unless they have no issue with cancelling and keeping the fees. It's a win win. You can plan a show and have an honorable reason to cancel. Not that this or any venue does this but I'm sure it does happen.

                                  Woodside entry and stabling, like Galway, is paid to USAE, not Kellerhouse. Other smaller upcoming events (i.e. Shepherd Ranch and Woodland, where I volunteer) specifically state no refunds in case of cancellation. If your friend is so concerned about whatever it is they are so concerned about, why didn't they ask?

                                  Re your virus concerns: Here in nor cal I can drive an hour max in any direction, 30 minutes or less if I go north or east, and find plenty of one night to 3-day, indoor, team ropings and gymkhana every weekend, most if not all announced publicly via social media. Perhaps you should advise them that they have too many horses in a small area and see what happens. Since you like bets, I dare you to wear a mask.

                                        I thought it made sense. (Not saying I agree or disagree with having shows/events right now.) They were pointing out that this event the OP is complaining about is no different than other horse things going on.
                                        At least, I think that is what they were saying, that is what I got from it.
