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.

  • Pulled shoe at horseshow question

    Just got a call from my rider who has my young horse at a horseshow - she was riding in the warmup arena and before she realized the footing was swampy, the mare pulled a shoe.

    Mind you, it is about 95 degrees here and there has been no rain at all, so the ring was flooded due to overwatering - do I have any recourse with the show management on the cost of resetting the shoe? The horse was just shod this past Friday!

    A little aggravated to spend $ 50 to tack on a shoe due to poor facility management!

    Any thoughts?

      You have no recourse. Nor should you. If you are that worried about pulling a shoe, you should not ride in the ring.

      I once pulled a shoe in the first round of my amateur division. Had to ride down, get it put back on, and ride back up for my second class.

      Not the show's fault. If I was gonna freak out about pulling a shoe I shouldn't have been in the ring.

        I would also throw in that, it would have to be a certain footing and a certain wetness for it to pull off a shoe, which I highly doubt it was, may have helped, but if the shoe comes off in wet arena footing that easily, the shoe wasn't put on correctly.

          any recourse would/should most likely be from your farrier. At least ours does a replacement free depending...

              The shoe has been on less than a week and your farrier won't put it back on for free?? Seriously?

                Well, I'm glad I made you laugh My question wasn't meant to be retorical but in retrospect, I can see that it is.

                The shoe was put on properly and I'm familiar with the footing in that ring as they've had to close that ring at other shows because of overwatering and it is quite deep enough to pull a shoe! I've told my rider to stay clear of that one in the future but I can't help but be aggravated....

                My farrier would replace the shoe without issue but the horse is at a show and we had to use the show farrier.

                  It's likely that the shoe was replaced at the show. By the show farrier. Which is pricey

                  If the horse was brought home with one shoe off, then, yep, I'd be asking my farrier if he would tack it back on for free.

                    I giggled too. Not at you OP, at this.

                    Also...not sure I'd be showing at a place with shoe sucking arenas. Questionable? Tendons etc are more pricey than a shoe.

                      Oh definitely! Tendons are much more pricey! This was one of the only ones available for schooling, unfortunately it was swampy but the show rings are not generally a problem.

                      Oh well, what's another $$ :headpalm:

                        Anyone else have issues w/ this at the show? If since it's apparently a rated show why not file a complaint w/ steward or fill out one of the show evaluation forms. The management won't necessarily know to be less zealous about watering if no one complains that it's an issue. And while some of us chuckle at the question in your post, it might not be that unreasonable for you to ask show management w/farrier bill in hand and nicely explain the situation and explain it w/alot of honey.. you might get a credit on your bill?

                          Can she complain and mention it? yes definitely. Her question pertained to being reimbursed, which shows just don't ever do..

                            Geez. No, show management is not responsible for this. If you don't like the condition of the arenas, don't go to their shows. Or don't ride in the arenas that are in poor condition.

                            My horse backed into a DRAG at a horse show that was sitting idle/unhooked near the ring. My trainer exercised poor judgment in getting on right in front of the drag, but, really, the drag should not have been just sitting there where it was either. It was pretty much everyone's fault except for mine, but when it comes down to it, I am still responsible for whatever happens to my horse. I chose to let him go to the show, I chose to let the trainer ride him, etc., etc., etc.

                            That adventure cost me $1,800 in vet bills PLUS I still had to pay my stall fee and other administrative fees to show management (about $300). Be glad your horse just pulled a shoe.

                              You've said you know what the footing is like at the show, and you made the decision to show there. You even know the footing specifically in that ring prior to your rider schooling there and pulling a shoe. So how is it the show's fault? Its there right to water the ring as much as they want, and your right to abstain from a ring or a show if you know the footing will be bad.

                                If you got it tacked back on for $50 at a RATED show, you got a sweet deal! I had to pay $80 for one to be tacked on at one of our larger NON-rateds last year!

                                  I'd be blaming the rider based on what you said. However I would not look to anyone for reimbursement.

                                    I have had that happen. My only issue was that I had to scratch classes waiting all day for the "show farrier" who yes, charged $50.00 to put the shoe back on. Had a trainer try and take my place with the show farrier to have her client's horse shod first. I called the show farrier, my call, my horse goes first.

                                    Showing, I sometimes wonder why I love it !
