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!

  • HITS Saugerties Hotel -- Greens Inn

    Venturing over from dressage land, can anyone recommend the Greens Inn across the street from HITS Saugerties?

    http://thegreensinn.vzwebsites.com/index.html

    Looks pretty spartan and dormitory-like but clean and perfect for the needs of my group. Has anyone stayed here? TIA for any info (good or bad) you can share!

  • #2
    I have not stayed there but in the drive by it couldn't be closer. Have seen many riders walking in and out with the typical decent vehicles parked there. Most likely Spartan but not a flea bag :-)

      Don't know anyone who has stayed there, but the pics look nice and it is 10 steps away from the showgrounds. We just got back from the show and stayed at the Holiday Inn in Kingston which was decent and really not too far. it took about 15 minutes door to door.

        Yes, proximity is great and the rooms while utilitarian, look clean and livable. I also grilled the manager about the cleanliness and he gave me satisfactory answers. I was just hoping to hear some first-hand experience!

          Stay away

          Everyone i know who has stayed there has not made e then 1 night. NO windows in rooms, some share bothrooms with other "communal" rooms. What does anyone expect for 60 bucks a night across from the show???? If it was decent it would always be booked.

            It's only been there 2 years, so I was hoping that it might not have caught on yet. Rooms are between $90 and $130/night, not $60.

                If you can get a room - the Comfort Inn and the Howard Johnsons are both 5 minutes away. Kingston is about 10-15 minutes south and have more selection.

                  We have a block of rooms reserved at the CI (since March!) but they are all smoking rooms and all of us are non-smokers. We've been hoping some NS rooms would clear but they have not as of yet, hence my search for something else. Wish I could get a first-hand review! For a group of people who all know each other, having your bathroom share a door with a communal area is not the end of the world and having the common areas to hang out in would be nice. sleeping rooms without a window would be pretty depressing though.

                    The Comfort Inn and Howard Johnson in Saugerties are much more pricey than hotels of equal quality one exit south in Kingston (which is a 15-20min drive from the show). There is also a Quality Inn one exit north in Catskill that isn't bad. I have stayed at the Rodeway Inn in Kingston and the Holiday Inn , however the Rodeway has a better cancellation policy and is a little cheaper. It is not a 5 star hotel, don't get me wrong, but it's clean and good enough albeit not plush and uber-comfortable.

                    The Greens Inn is where a lot of barns house their grooms, etc. While I have not stayed there, I have seen it and it is not worth the extra money you pay for proximity to the show. I wouldn't call the rooms disgusting but they are indeed depressing and what I would expect to pay $40 a night for, not $90!! I'd stay in Kingston!

                          We just got back and stayed at the Holiday Inn in Kingston. Not a bad drive at all from the showgrounds, dog friendly and a lot of people from the horse show were staying there.

                            ...no

                            I would caution you against it as I've never heard good things and I've heard only that grooms stay.

                            There are many nice bed and breakfasts which are sometimes much better for a group and for the same price as a box hotel you get a clean plush room and some extra comforts. (http://www.smythehouse.com/ , saugerties bed and breakfast , the clark house ) are all places that friends have stayed and raved about.

                            The hotels in Kingston, if you want a hotel, are your best bet.

                              I stay at either one of these, because they are so close to the showgrounds. Both are clean, decent, nothing fancy, Comfort Inn has a free breakfast in the lobby, but no restaurant or room service, HoJo's has a diner type restaurant on the premises. I have stayed in Kingston, its too far away IMO, 15 minutes and I like to be able to run back and forth to the show grounds, for night check, etc.

                              Unlikely you can get a room for August now though, they book up fast. We used to make our reservations a year in advance.

                                I have stayed there, nice pool and we had a dog with us. I just prefer to be closer.

                                If you're a group why not rent a house? That's what my trainer does now, and so do several of her clients. Usually a couple of them share a house, the moms cook and do laundry during the day, since they don't want to spend the entire day at the show, it was nice coming back each night and having a home cooked meal.

                                  A lot of dressage people stay at the Super 8 in Kingston for the August show and Regionals in September.

                                    Check out the Red Ranch Motel--very basic, but clean and 10 minutes or less from showgrounds, once you know the shortcut. Stayed there recently. Also an ok Italian restaurant right next door. Do not confuse with the Red House Motel, which is even closer but scary.

                                      I stayed at the inn at Cafe Tamayo on Partition Street. Food is excellent and rooms are very nice. They book up well in advance and they only have a few rooms/suites.

                                        I have friends who stay there all the time, they like the convenience, 2 minutes from the show grounds and you're right in the town of Saugerties, but they do complain about the noise from downstairs sometimes. They are also more expensive IIRC, not for budget minded people.
