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!

    Hampton Classic (NY) cancelled. Announced today.

      The notice of cancellation of the Hampton Classic was in our local newspaper this morning. Not surprising but still very sad. I usually go several days to spectate.

        I was kind of surprised over the Hampton classic. We are 3 months away. It seemed premature since many states are reopening.

          Then you have no idea what expenses an event has o front long before the horse show. When you contract and give deposits for $100's of thousands to contractors most are nonrefundable (ent companies, electrician, plumbers, etc) Then there are scared sponsors not providing capital. Most shows are running with no VIP tent which is huge funding for shows. And with HC the VIP tent often gets more interest than the horse show. It is really the only decision they can make. Little shows will be OK, it's the extravaganzas that will be pretty dysfunctional this year.

            Well, I’ve never ran a multi day AA rated show, but considering that other venues are still planning on running and there is a pretty good possibility of the state opening completely up by then, it seems a little premature.

              any word on the Aiken summer stuff & pre-show since the gov just extended the state of emergency through June 11 - including allowing law enforcement to disband groups of more than 3..
              All the Aiken shows are a go. No stalls available at Bruce’s and there is a waiting list. Also PSJ shows at Highfields are running.

                The Hampton Classic is different than your average rated AA show though. It's more of a social event, a place to see and be seen. While I don't know the specifics, my guess is that they have no way of making the show profitable (or even breaking even) without the money from the VIP tents and sponsors were unwilling to commit given there was no guarantee the state would be open enough to hold the show in its normal capacity with VIP spectators etc.

                  As others have noted, this is not just a horse show. It's got so many other moving parts. Devon, Hampton Classic, etc. the considerations and planning are year-round and the financial commitments go well beyond the horse show part itself.

                    Oh yea figured that out when I drove here, still sketched out it was going to cancel last minute sort of like that classic co “schooling” week in Gulfport.. I was surprised to see SO many haul ins this weekend at Aiken because I thought they weren’t allowed, vut I know it’s unrated so I guess we will see next week.

                        Ali Nilforushan ran a “no show” sort of an event at Galway last weekend and is now planning to run back-to-back shows there the last week in June and the first week in July. Not USEF but apparently a similar schedule over five days and a $25K GP and a hunter derby ($5K?). Premium is due to be out within a few days, but already taking stall reservations.

                        Oaks Blenheim is planning USEF shows (the ones that would normally run at Showpark) in July. They may run a county rated show and/or do a no show beforehand.

                        West Palms is running their Huntington Beach shows the first part of July.

                        Portuguese Bend Show in September cancelled. This is a charity show that depends heavily on spectators for income.

                          I attended the first USEF show back in my part of New York over this past weekend. They had a great turnout, with very full days all weekend. So I think the shows that are able to run might be swamped with entries.

                            I believe OHDC, in Oregon, is canceled.

                                  and compliance at horse shows seems to be very lax in these parts.

                                    Couple of one day USEF shows running in my part of PA. First one was very well attended. The USEF waiver process was ridiculously hard to operationalize but otherwise pretty much business as usual.

                                      July Huntercreek/TeamNW shows in Oregon are cancelled. Bend High Desert Classics are cancelled as well. Can't comply with state Phase 2 requirements.

                                        I’m not sure if it’s so much compliance as it is that the state had/has really lax rules on COVID-19

                                          The USEF Covid guidelines specifically say that whichever rules are more restrictive are the ones that will apply at shows. So even if the state rules are lax, the more strict USEF Covid rules are the ones that are in effect.
