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!

  • Traders Point Charity horse show

    I am trying to decide where to go in August and I am interested in how big this show is for the jumpers? High Schooling and 1.20/1.25 open jumper classes? I looked for class counts from last year online but couldn't find it.

    How many horses were there last year?

    Thanks!

    So I just shot a text off to one of my good friends who did jumpers around here up to small grand prix's- she did trader's point as well. Her text was:
    "LOVED IT!! The grass arena is tricky and they set heights at exactly the height- no over/under (unlike kentucky). I never showed in the other ring but it looked fine. Look at the schedule and try to get in the grass ring!" She said it was one of her favorite shows. Hope that helps! (Sorry I can't help you out with numbers..)
    I see distances. Most times more than one. Sometimes I pick the right one, sometimes I pick the wrong one, and sometimes I close my eyes and let Jesus take the wheel.

      My barn goes every year, and if I remember correctly (I haven't been since 2010), the jumpers are well represented. The jumper annex has nice footing. The grass field does get a bit hard by the end of the week, but it doesn't seem to cause any problems. I am probably wrong, but I remember the jumpers running all day in the annex ring, but the grass field being done by 1 or 2.

        The jumper numbers are always good there but I have to say the region has not had much rain and I can only imagine the grass ring will being harder then a rock unless they have or plan on watering it. Plus it never fails that the electricity will go out and it will be horribly hot. I've never liked the schedule either because most of the amatuer stuff runs during the week. I did like the fair and the office staff was nice but I can honestly say for myself that unless this show was in my back yard or I need points I won't go.
        I want to be like Barbie because that bitch has everything!

          Jumper numbers are always good. Fun courses and the grass field is a blast. Be prepared for HOT!!! I was there in 2010 and I think it was over 100 every day. The circuits get over loaded and the power goes out in the tents a lot. Horses and humans alike were pretty miserable at no fault of the management or facility. Just too hot :/

            I live very close so if you go I want to meet another COTHer!

            I have never shown there but I have been there as a spectator and I have ridden on the grounds for a hunt club function. This facility is ONLY used for the one show a year plus the foxhunters run through it.

            You would be jumping in a large sand ring with another sand warm up ring. There is a grass grand prix ring which has an irrigation system so it will stay green and soft but it really isn't used except for the bigger classes especially if it's wet. There is a lot of room for hand walking, grazing, and lunging. I think there is an area for motor home hook ups, and most of the trailer/car parking will be on grass.

            It can either be VERY hot or it can rain a ton. There is a "fair" type area with multiple vendors and fair food booths.

                You can always calculate class counts by looking on the USEF website for the results from the previous year.
                I know it's a bit tricky and not for the lazy because you'll have to actually do some math or count the number of DNP horses but you can calculate the counts.

                  The results from last year are posted on the TPH web-site so you can look at the jumper numbers. The grass ring does get watered so the footing should be okay and before the show last year all the electrical was redone and there was no issue with the power being overloaded. We had fans running all the time and had no problems at all. New management took over two years ago but overall there have not really been many changes.

                    I clicked on the 2011 show results link and it took me to one of the horse showing online sites and I only saw shows for 2012. Perhaps I didn't dig down deep enough? I will take another look and see if I can find the 2011 show on that site. : )

                          I loved Traders Point when I went in 2009. Child/Adult jumpers were massive (not as bad as Conyers but definitely the 2nd biggest C/A class I've competed in.) We were in tents so that wasn't so wonderful but the footing was nice.

                          Actually Beezie Madden schooled me that show, so I may be a little bias from the memory. Ah to have the money to ride with her full time. Le sigh..
