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!

Show series in NJ?

  • Show series in NJ?

    Is there anything other than what I find on njpha.com?

    I'm trying to figure out how the year end points work up here...where I'm from in NC, we had one state-wide H/J Association with A and C shows then a smaller C level one for the area.

  • #2
    we have the NJHSA and the NJPHA. theyre both the most common and official state associations. the difference between them is the way they calculate points and they both have the normal divisions but the NJHSA has some that NJPHA doesnt, and vice versa. i am signed up for both. what is your question, exactly?

    if you want to know how they calculate points, they both have a section on how their points are calculated. i forget what pages theyre on, but i know that theyre both on the sites. as far as shows, you can check on usef.org as well for shows. there's lots of shows in NJ, and most of them will be rated by the NJHSA and NJPHA, but some arent.

      Basically I just wanted to know what the associations were, and info on them. I can google the NJHSA though.

      Which would you consider more competitive? Better run? Better facilities?

        These associations don't run their own shows...I think there might be one NJHSA show at Briarwood in the fall and NJPHA has a "finale" type thing for the top points. But all the show series in NJ (Woodedge, Monmouth, Briarwood, Duncraven, etc.) are NJHSA and NJPHA pointed.

          NJHSA and NJPHA don't have their own shows, except for one double point one each year. And NJPHA only counts one class while NJHSA counts all, plus bonuses for champion or reserve/

          For show circuits, there are: Hunter Farms, Palermo Show Stable, Briarwood Farm, Monmouth, Duncraven/Black River, CJL, Woodedge.... and probably a bunch more. These shows don't usually have year end prizes (with the exception of Palermo and Woodedge, and possibly Hunter Farms)

          For year end points, I prefer NJHSA personally because not everything is riding on that one class, so I feel that I can have more of a chance to do better.
          Both year end associations give out nice prizes (I know that NJHSA gives coolers to champions, and NJPHA receives similar prizes like directors chairs, etc)

            Chesterfield Farm Hunter Series will be starting April 11th. This series runs NJPHA classes and also Marshall/Sterling classics. They have a nine show series with a year end high score awards banquet. They also run an Invitational Classic in the fall with a country barbeque. The exhibitors seem to enjoy this event. If you are interested go to their website www.coursesbydesign.com

              Do exhibitors usually braid for your shows, or just for the invitational at the end of the series?

                Most of the horses are unbraided. For the M/S classics they may braid. During the Invitational all of those horses are braided.

                  duncraven & black river just finished their winter series, but good shows for next year. palermo also has a series which i believe finishes this weekend too, both nice places.

                    oh so youre looking for a series, i see.

                    Palermo has great series' all year round. this weekend is actually the last of their winter series and there's a finals at the end of april. they also have spring/summer and fall circuits, and the winter one. this is their first time doing a finals, i think, but they've always done series-end awards up to 8th place in most divisions.

                    Sussex Co. has a year-long series i believe, and they have awards at the end of the year too. sussex has great shows.

                    briarwood also has a year-long series, i believe, as well as monmouth.

                    as for an actual association that holds their own shows, try looking into.. shoot i cant think of the name. i want to say central jersey equine or something but i remember thinking that doesnt make a lot of sense because all their shows are held at east freehold park which is where monmouth shows are. if someone could chime in on that one, that'd help the OP im sure. thats the only association that holds only their own shows. as for NJHSA and NJPHA, they both have one of their own shows a year and both are at briarwood, theyre kind of like special double-point shows. the NJPHA also has the fall finale, which is a finals. it doesnt have every division though (though i wish it did. they have childrens HORSE eq but not pony? not fairrr)

                      NJPHA &amp; NJHSA

                      Both of these associations sanction any horse shows that want to run their points (both schooling & rated shows) The idea is to keep consistency in the divisions & have a set of rules to follow. NJPHA run a bonus point show in July at East Freehold Park & NJHSA run their bonus point show in September at Briarwood. I addition the NJPHA runs the Fall Finale, a finals for the lower divisions; Mini Stirrup WT thru 3' Children's Equitation; this year the Fall Finale will be in October.
                      I think the show series you were thinking of is Central Jersey Horse Show Association(CJHA), they run their own series at East Freehold Park, but also run NJPHA & NJHSA classes. There is also DVHA (Delaware Valley Horsemen's Association) They run on their own showgrounds in the Flemington, NJ area.
                      I would suggest you get an NJPHA calendar, it has all the shows sanctioned by the NJPHA listed in it. You should be able to purchase one at most tack shops, if you can't find one PM me & I can tell you how to get one.

                          CJHA also has a series but I was looking at this years prizelist and I didn't see much over 18". There are also other shows that are not series that have points in NJPHA and NJHSA like the big A rated ones at Duncraven over the summer

                            Don't plain on the divisions over 2' filling at CJHA, it's more of a secondary open 4-H show. I second NJHSA shows, Briarwood, Woodedge, DVHA is actually a nicer Open series. Hunter Farms and Duncraven has nice series. I prefer the Monmouth horseshow route. They don't have year-ends but it's pointed for both and have both A and C shows. CJL is also nice... and I *think* they do year-ends.

                            If you qualify though, just follow the M&S route.
