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!

    Have to agree that the NHS is behind the ball in terms of providing results. They were like that last year too (at least on their actualy website) - ShowNet had the results up pretty quick.

    Do you think there'd be more entries if were back in NY? (assuming there was affordable place for it etc.) Or do competitors not go because it is $1000/division and in Kentucky?

    EQTV is awesome btw

      Don't think that many want to go to Kentucky after Cap Challenge, harrisburg and Washington. Money is good, entries and expenses high. I am sorry that they moved the show away from Syracuse. That was a wonderful horse show with great support and many filled seats. The community was behind itand it was innovative. John and Beezie did a great job producing that event. I don't think that I am alone in feeling that it was a shame to move it away.

        To start with the NHS in any location other than NYC will never have the aura/allure that went along with showing in NYC in MSG - the premier indoor sports arena in the world. (Good thing it's not there this year ;-)!!)

        It didn't work at the Pier, it didn't work at the Meadowlands, it almost worked in Syracuse and it's not working in KY. There are just too many events at the KHP to expect one more Hunter/Jumper show to morph into something special. Five regular conformation horses? Seventeen First Years? It's sad.

        No doubt the KHP is a fabulous, horse friendly facility and MSG certainly was/is not. But it didn't seem to matter if you had to haul equipment up the ramp, listen to that incessant recording, lunge at 2am, go without much sleep, it was the Garden!

        For one show I'll take the inconvenience if that one show is held in MSG.

          You're definitely not alone in that feeling!

          And I agree, when it's just one more show at a place that has many, many shows each year, there is no way it can seem as special.

            @ruby and MHM, I think if they had stayed at Syracuse they could have made it something special. It will never be the Garden again, but horse shows will never be what they were again period as well.

                  I'm perfectly happy with the location myself. Those who wax nostalgic about the old MSG can always go show in Washington if they REALLY want to drag their horses along city streets.

                  KHP is much more spectator-friendly. It would have cost me at least $200 a day to attend the NHS at the old MSG in the 1970s; with it being at KHP, hotels being dirt cheap, and day admission being free, I can do 3 whole days of spectating, including the 2 stake nights, for under $200 including hotels and meals! You can't even match that value for money at the local "A" shows at GIHP!

                  It seems to be more exhibitor friendly at KHP as well. Didn't the GP riders vote it their favorite show of the year last year? Or "best run" or something?

                    Geez, can you imagine the debacle if it would have been in NYC with the storm? Kentucky's a pretty nice alternative than having to show your horse wearing water wings and a snorkel!

Just enter and pay your money, they'll take it. Qualifying in those divisions is pretty much a thing of the past.
                      I thought you didn't have to qualify at all anymore for the National - you just have to get your entries in on time to get your spot? I'm now thinking I am likely wrong though...

                      I am grateful to be old enough that in my mid-teens back in the 80s, my best friend and I took the train to NYC to watch the National at MSG. It was amazing, but those days are long gone.

                        It depends on the division. Some light divisions took all entries. Other divisions filled plus had a stand by list with many horses on it.

                                  It can't cost $300,000 to live feed the entire show. That's just a excuse why they're not providing a free feed for the whole show! I wouldn't listen to Mason anyways...

                                    and the feed still sucks in case anyone is wondering! It doesn't last more than 2 minutes without kicking you out. Although I know it has to do with havoc wreaked by Sandy... I do hope it is all sorted out by Saturday for the big grand prix and Sunday for the Maclay!

                                        It will be interesting to see how things go in New York with the marathon this weekend. I wish lots of luck to everybody involved in trying to pull that off!

                                          I agree that Syracuse was a very good show that could have turned into a great/special show.

                                          Since results continue to be really slow... anyone with results from the A/O jumpers today? Facebook only lists the winner.
