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!

    Now that New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut are requiring people entering the region from Florida, South Carolina, and North Carolina to self-quarantine for 14 days, any guesses as to whether HITS Saugerties will be enforcing this rule, as the show gets ready to start up next week?

    And yes - I forgot about rose mount! I’m glad to see they could move their April week to July. I showed there as a kid and loved it.
    I always forget it is called belfield, and go to that Mcdonogh page that hasn’t been updated since like 2017, and get all confused.

    RoseMount will be holding 2 weeks of rated at the end of July. It’s a bit more south than most want to go, but we will be going (most likely).

    swan Lake appears to be running their June rated next weekend. They had a schooling show this weekend.

    HITS and Swan lake seem to be the only rated options in July in the PA/MD/VA area.

    Swan lake is not holding the June rated show. They had a schooling show this weekend and have prizelists up for the B shows. They are working on the prizelists for the bigger shows but plan to hold them.

    I’m not sure about Maryland and PA though. Are shows running up there? I was planning on attending the rated swan lake at the end of July but they don’t have prize lists up.

I think that's a very nice gesture for a lot of trainers who've had a rough go of it in the name of safety.

    What is kind of a bummer is they are charging a 3% credit card fee. And bc of COVID, you can only pay by credit card. Really not loving that.
    If by footing, you’re referring to rocks, my horse was injured there last May and will never, ever go back. The facility has a long history of rocks and I am kicking myself for letting my horse go there.

    The divot on the sole of his foot aligned with the three abnormalities found by MRI. Insurance paid for that, but not for the months off, nor for the “re-irritation“ as my vet calls it that I’m paying for out of pocket and that the vet thinks is directly related. The facility manager told me there were no rocks. The show manager never responded to my email.

    Blenheim got county and city permission to do shows at The Oaks! County show next week, No Show in July, then their first rated show in July. The shows they normally run at Showpark got moved to The Oaks because they wanted to concentrate on COVID-compliance at once show grounds.

    The West Palm Events shows at Huntington Beach in July got moved to Verdugo Hills, apparently because of some sort of hang up with the county or city. I heard county but, given that the Oaks shows are going forward, maybe it’s city? Weather is decidedly nicer in Huntington Beach than the SFV in July, but there is more space to spread out at Verdugo Hills (the facility formerly known as Hansen Dam).

    Both sets of shows have protocols involving who can and cannot be on the grounds and in the stable area, masks wearing, etc., and (in the case of Blenheim), lots of hand sanitizer.

    I'm super curious to see what happens with Cap Challenge. PGEC is a county-run facility under much stricter regulations than private show facilities in MD and I heard a rumor that all events there were cancelled through August. Time will tell, but I am not sure about September being magically better...

    Dont want to go to Harrisburg. But want to go somewhere. Could move KY earlier and do outdoors? Lots of nice outdoor venues up north of it’s a little earlier.

    Almost all other major tourist event attractions in the area have wisely cancelled - National Cherry Festival, Film Festival, numerous wine and art festivals, major running events; all no go this year, but GLEF goes on and even expands. Speaks rather poorly for the privileged horse community unfortunately. Do they have one iota of concern for the residents of the area?
    Complain to your Governor.

    Depends on which “Bruces Field” show you attended. The ones in June are run by Bob Bell, the ones in Sept and Dec are run by Equus Events, and the May Charity shows are the only ones affiliated or run by the board of the Aiken Horse Park, so please specify to which management company you are referring. There are also as of this year January and February shows run by Progressive Show Jumping.
    Good point, I forget that it’s not an owned venue like many of them are. It was a September show.

    Santa Fe Summer Series cancelled due to the state not approving. The split rock show that was to follow hasn’t updated on if they will go or not.
