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.

    • Or is there an unrated show to go to? I've got juveniles, now, you know!!

      I had thought about a Geriatric Hunter division at CF, but never thought it would fly. I don't think there is that much interest- Although I could have used a division like that when I dragged Without Wings out of retirement to do the eq. a few years back!!!

      I wonder how we're gunna fix the LIHSAA committee.......hmmmm......

              Enough already. My new barn is about to float away!!!
              Yup, that's the reason. No Sm. hunt show[which is a shame for the hunt] Traditions die and that is a shame. Harry needs to spice them up again he he!
              Linda, you show at the preserve last year? Still wondering what to do about next weekend if this weather ever clears!
              Well, as far as the generic hunter thing, I feel down the road it warrants a discussion. I do not feel it should be an end of year winning thing but L.I. horseshows should bring back some open 2'6" low hunter classes. Hey, got an idea, high, low special hunter non end of year. That AHSA pre-green thing really should be end of year if it ever takes off. But this is long term,down the road discussion. I feel this is not a pressing matter with every thing on the LIHSAA's plate at this time.

              • How about instead of calling it the GERIATRIC Hunters or high/low special, we call it the BEEN THERE DONE THAT Hunters. I'm sure there must be many horses that now longer fit in anywhere and maybe this will clear some people out of the pre-adult pre-childrens division. But what the hell, throw in an end of year cooler, dish and as a special incentive a year of Legend-lol.

                Now in defense of LURKERS, some of us never intended to be lurkers-we just can't follow simple directions. As a former lurker let me say this-YOU HAVE TO LOOK FOR THE E-MAIL AND CLICK!!!
                Either that or call Jane. LOL.

                  First off, ask my sister in-law how long it took me to get her on this message board because she deleted that e-mail!! That is a must! lol
                  As far as giving the generic hunter a cooler at the end of the year, sorry lurkn, cann't support that one! They have already been there and done that and don't need another cooler to there exsisting collection. But remember,I'm just a big mouth here and not on the comittee! but I can say, I do think that will never fly.

                  • we just luck out in the Hamptons because of the holiday? Bright sunshine blue skies all afternoon--after a VERY foggy morning! Took the girls and ponies for a walk on the beach (gave the visitors something to ooooh and ahhh over)---and it's a very small world, we saw Danny Murphree on our way to the beach and on the way back met a very nice gentleman who used to show jumpers and who says he now keeps a horse at Dolan's in Oyster Bay. Didn't get his name...So where did it rain?

                    And wait--NO SMITHTOWN HUNT???? Why?? What happened??

                      Just meant no Sm. Hunt horse show. Seems there really was not much organization to have the show and it is a shame. Smithtown Hunt needs a fire put under them I think. I enjoyed watching the hounds demonstration over the years but it was obvious the hounds were not performing up to past abilities. Say what you will about Harry, but, he was a great HuntMaster!

                      • I would like to go to the preserve next week for the show Gold Dust, are you going??. Haven't been there in a couple of years but don't remember the footing being all that bad. We rode in that hunter ring in the back. I do remember when they used the ring for the adult equit. that kinda sloped down and had that option jump in the gulley. That ring was a little rutty. Didn't go this weekend because of the footing........ really should go to do the Adult Amat.

                            • I have to go to Fla. on family matters and won't be back till Sunday before PHA Meeting Monday. Want to leave you guys with-

                              At the show this weekend, Jimmy decided to split the Lows at 8 each. There were 4 and 4. This is a LIHSA split division, to be combined if less than 3 in either section. So now we have management, cranky about the PRE-Childrens thing, gunna take it out on another division, by making rules up as they go.

                              This whole thing is getting uglier and uglier.

                              Will check in again tonight before I go.....

                                  First off, Good morning Chris. My it was attack the sister in-law morning. he he!
                                  Second, my Newfies could track a fox better then those hounds. All they need is that damn Scruffy dog of yours and the hunt would be set!
                                  Third, where were you last year while I was under the tent watching the hounds? I remember that vividly as immediatly following that demonstration I was hurled to the ground at warp speed in the hunter classic!!!
                                  Fourth, I watch them evry year wise a**. I may watch to watch them screw up but have always watched.
                                  Get back in the ring and I'll talk to you later! Love ya too!!!!!

                                  • I distictly remember Debbie under the tent watching the dogs, but I think she was only waiting for the hunter classic to begin. LOL!!!

                                    I do, however, recall her having a true appreciation of the Indian noises thing on opening day at the Hampton's. She seemed to especially enjoy it while on of her stidents were in the eq ring.

                                      Thanks for being in my corner. Sort of lol I am remembering that now and laughing so hard! Heads up ingate LOL

                                      I had heard the LIHSAA low hunters had a split thing going on. Now I am totally confused. I thought that was a done deal and split at 3 and 3 if it had the entries? Answers to that one please?

                                      As far as the pre=childrens hunter, it is no secret I am an advocate for that. I do understand it is a done deal and I am understanding my fight is for next year. Here is where I need to see figures that Michael has for the past years how many of each there were. June 11th is chock full of issues and I hope you can come Michael. Bad feelings on this should not come into play on other divisions.

                                      • Heard from Michael about the Pre-Children's thing. He explained that the division was split, horse/pony, at 10 shows last year, all Jimmy's. He said that in doing so it seemed to tip the point scales toward the ponies. He explained further that it was difficult for the horses to catch a pony out in front, as the horse rarely actually competed against the pony. I see his point. The division was split only twice the year before. So the split problem really ballooned last year, and was curbed this year, by LIHSA.

                                        Well, I'm off to Florida. Good luck on all your missions and I'll see you all at the PHA meeting. May the Force be with you, whatever force you may need anyway.

                                        • I hope someone is writing down all these thoughts and ideas because I have heard over and over they have to be submitted in writing. If I have all the issues so far they are. (1) The Long Island High Score Committee needs to revamp it's membership and come up with by-laws, so that rule changes and procedures are FAIR and understandable. (2) Whether to split the Pre-childrens hunters into two sections Horses and Ponies starting the year 2002. (3) Web site needs to be updated more often. (4) Specs. need to be correctly posted and more available somehow. (5) Prize lists must have correct specs.


                                          One more thought, since the pre-childrens were split last year and points were tabulated, I believe a precedent was set and the exhibitor should not be penilized. The LIHSAA has ruled the class WILL NOT BE SPLIT for this year but I think the points that were earned in the shows that did split should count.
