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!

  • LONG ISLAND- The outcome of this past PHA meeting

    Well, another meeting has gone by. Besides our usual business very important update. As we all know many of us have LIHSAA issues. Although nothing had been put to order last night at least an open meeting of the LIHSAA has been put on the calendar for Monday, June 11th at the New Horizons Diner at 7:30. This is a must attend meeting people. The door has opened for comminication so lets open it big and wide.
    My opinion, the first order on the agenda is comittee member update and major changes there. We need proper representation guys. What do you think? Lets get the ball rolling guys. Start posting please and lets here some feedback from all!

      The specs for Prechildren's Hunter has not changed from last year. It was not to be split last year, and that rule is being inforced again this year. Nothing has changed. So what is the problem?

      And the SS Hunters CAN be split at 17, according to the LIHSSA specs. So where's the problem there?

      As far as the numbers in the hack class, it could be added that no more than 6/8/whatever to canter at one time.


      Remember, these divisions are run on the increment system as well, so more entries- more points!!

        I dd not know it was not suppposed to be split last year - the pre-children's divison. We split it all the time. And the SS Hunters - we always split those. Why can't the horse show managers split things if we want. Alvin says it will get to 4 in a class. That's not giving the horse show managers much credit for brains. I take offense at that. As I have mentioned before the LIHSAA was started to encourage showing on LI. Most of whatthe present LIHSAA has done has not benefitted anyone, except------. Shouldn't go there
        Thanks Debbie for starting this new thread and for all your help a the meeting

          just to clarifuy and mind you I donot have this supposed rule book in front of me.It has been read to me over the phone,one thepre childrens dividon is not split as an end of year award at the banquet it is on e set of ribbons .Whatteh show manager chooses to do should be their own decision.Two I was told that the short stirrup eq can be divided at 17 not hunters.At any rate apparently there were 18 at last weekend's hunters isle show.

            I have read that booklet and as far as the Sh. St. hunters it states to me that it can be split if the divisions has 17 so I do not see why that is becoming a problem. The pre-childrens hunter was split quite often last year. This is where LIHSAA needs to let us know they are doing things like that and not just put it in a booklet left on the table at the dinner dance. Mrs. Rice is right when she says if managment would like to split the day of the show then why not. It may make points more difficult to tally but like any job there are some aspects of it that will become trying but hey, that's my day to day here! lol

            I feel so strongly on upgrading the way the LIHSAA is working its current system. This is the feedback I need so my mission will be succesful. And I mean I AM ON A MISSION!

                  Not a member yet. There's so much new stuff, I can't believe it. I need to go to shows and see what's happening before I even think about showing. Glad I went to the meeting. You guys all look great. Does anyone have Jo Rothenberg's phone #? I work for the Bank of Smithtown and spoke to Tom Mannos Wed. He gave me her address but not the phone #. I want to call her and give her our CD rates and other info. Tom liked the idea. Please email me with her # if you (anyone) can. Thanks! It was good to see everyone.

                        Just so everyone understands why brilyntrip has asked if you are a PHA member, it has been told to me someone questioned some people at the meeting not being members. My take on that is -so what! Seems to me we should encourage people to attend and then hope they keep coming, get involved and become paid memebers. So the problem with that is..........?

                            I know, I know, I should have all the results for you, but I don't. Sorry. WHERE WERE YOU ALL? I hope you will attend Sat/Sun.

                            The Green Working had 3. The Pre-Green (AHSA Zone 2) had 4. The LIHSAA Low Professionals had 4, the LIHSAA Low AM/Jr section had 5. The Infant Hunters had 11. The LIHSAA Special hunters had around 5.

                            Courses rode well, were inviting and well decorated. Footing isn't perfect, but it's not total concrete. Food service was sketchy (another story) but they WILL be there Sat/Sun before 7 a.m.

                            Please come to the LI PHA show Sat/Sun (SUNY Old Westbury) and you can submit your membership at the show, if you haven't already joined.

                              Did not go today because I had to get everyone ready for tomorrow so will see you then! I hear we are getting rain early tomorrow morning but a quick shower so that should be perfect for the footing! Small turnout for friday but that should change tomorrow! Well, see you all bright and early.

                              Judge- see, it's all your fault LOL [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

                                  Once again, I don't understand. We're supposed to hustle up new members, but shouldn't persuade non-members to attend the meetings, in the process? Any interest is better than none.

                                  The non-members are potential members, let's not scare them away.

                                    Laura: "Sketchy" food service? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img] You are very kind, because that wouldn't have been my description. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img] I'm not sure exactly how long the truck was there on friday, but I know it was no more than two hours. I also heard they were out of bottled water within the first hour.

                                      I was at the PHA meeting on tuesday. No, I'm not a member but I am interested in coming to the meetings. I thought anyone was allowed to attend. Even though I am only an amateur, I still am very interested in everything that goes on in our horse show community. I don't want to be in the way or anything, I just like to listen. I hope that's okay?

                                        Spent all day at the show yesterday and am happy to report the coffe truck was there all day from bright and early until late at night. Food may have taken a bit long but in my opinion worth the wait! Show went well. Mother nature could of helped us with a bit more rain for the footing but whatcha gonna do but try a rain dance! lol I thought my ring ran as smooth as it could. Tim Cleary worked the in-gate[I was in the same ring all day] and he did a great job and was too funy all day long so at least we had some laughs all day too. I felt sorry for the people who had ch. hunter ponies. That was a small mob at the end of the day. Laura- can that division be split into 2 different rings? Larges in 1, small med. in the other? That might of helped the show finish sooner if you could being the other ring was finished.

                                        As far as the PHA meeting I believe there is no reason member or not that you can not sit in the meetings. How about all who come join anyway. It's a measly $50.00 pro dues and I believe only $25.00 for Jrs.[don't quote me on that one] and am not sure what the Am. dues are. Help me on that one Janet! So lets all join up if you have not and no problem for you guys because we love to see new faces!!!!
