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!

  • double AA show at the NJ Horse Park

    What does it mean a AA Hunter Show and who out there is going Nov 10-13, at the Horse Park of New Jersey?

  • #2
    Show

    My guess is it is a Woodedge hosted show. They have a website - search woodedge horse shows - and the prize list will be on there.
    In the past it has been both well attended as well as on the quiet side. It really depends on weather and who else has a show that weekend.

      I went last year. It was a nice show and we're planning on going again this year. It was pretty well attended last year. I had 15+ in my division.

          Wow! A three inch hunter derby!!! I will definitely sign up then since I'm pretty sure I can do that in spite of being a very recent re-rider.

          Sorry, I just couldn't help myself...

              I'm doing the 3ft derby too! We've been practicing tight roll backs, trotting fences, canter/halt transitions. I just looked at the prize list and it said lead over fence. I can only hope that is not the case, we just got my boy to figure out how to jog! It also said opening a gait while mounted so that should be interesting, we don't really have a way to practice it at home.

              Good luck to everyone this weekend, I'm excited to break out my shad belly!

                I'm doing the low a/os and am hoping to watch the derby. Good luck! If you pm me your horse's names, I'll cheer for you

                    We've got 11 from my barn going, split over the 2 days. The weather is supposed to be lovely this weekend so I would expect a good turnout.

                        I'm doing the Hunter Derby on Saturday too! It's supposed to be a beautiful day - 60s and sunny. It's our first derby experience, so we're just going to try to have fun. (I'll be the little one with glasses on the big bay, in my dark green jacket cause I haven't earned a shad yet, trying to make myself look calm and relaxed.) So excited!!

                          I'll be on a big brown pony with a pink lined shad. Oh wait that's everyone else out there! But we practiced leading over a fence today so hopefully if we get to the second round that won't be a problem!

                              I was sooooo impressed by the quality of the hunter ring and the beautiful course.... and the outrageously big turnout! The hunter derby was just getting going under the lights at 6ish last night! A happy change from the hunter rings closing in early afternoon at the shows I attended over the summer Made me worry that hunters are a dying sport

                              It is nice to think that hunters are still a sport that many love and that can draw a big turnout. Just goes to show that if you build a pretty course and offer a little prize money PEOPLE WILL SHOW UP! If you build it, they will come...LOL!
                              Wake up show organizers...take the time to plan a good show, offer some prizes and build a pretty old-school hunter course (I personally welcome the lower height fence options, but that's a whole other debate ) - and we will attend! What a blast! It also helps to be treated nicely by the show office! GO HUNTER RIDERS!

                                Interesting Handy Round!

                                Does anyone know where the results are posted? Are they online anywhere? I was there at noon to be sure not to miss the Derby - ha! Well, I got to see a lot of horses warm up for it, anyway! And must say, well worth the wait into the night to watch the entire thing, and I'm glad I brought a coat!

                                The surprise for me was how many horses were knocked down in the final handy round by the "lead over the trot rail" part. Some of them were the top scorers from the first round!

                                    I am so glad for Maureen and Bob getting such a great showing this weekend! The jumps in the indoor and outdoor hunter rings were beautiful and I have never had so much fun at a horse show as in that derby! And is anyone was there my horse was the one in the second round who jumped the lead fence about 2'6" - 3ft! What a great show!

                                    Also the photographer was gallopprints!

                                      to call the jumps gorgeous in that ring would be an understatement! I just wish they made some of the jumper jumps a bit prettier as well. But I am still drooling over that ring. I could not stay for the derby. Anyone have the results?
