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!

  • Who get's prize money?

    I was speaking to a friend/BO today. She asked me an interesting question that I never considered. While I know how I would handle it I was wondering what the protocol was.

    She paid a trainer to take a horse to a show. Trainers daughter rode the horse in the classes. She paid the trainer her full trainers fees, paid a fee per class to have the daughter ride the horse in classes, and paid all expenses. Horse did very well and when it and the trainer came home she asked the BO if she wanted the horses ribbons. BO said no to let the daughter keep them.

    Well 4 months later she was on-line looking at show results and realized that some of the classes were money classes. Now all she received was the bill for the show (trainer paid on site)trainers fees and expenses and daughters rides and expenses. Her fault she really didn't pay attention to all the classes but rather the horse won it's divisions etc.

    Who should have received the prize money? ( I can guarantee that the daughter didn't get to keep it)

    If I had a client who was paying for training fees and ride fees on their horse I would give them the prize money and if they decided to give me something of it that would be nice if not oh well I have my other fees.

    Did she get a copy of the bill as it came from the show? A lot of the shows here give prize money by just taking money off the show bill. Maybe that's what happened?

      Isn't prize money generally subtracted from the final show bill?

      • #4
        My theory?

        She who pays for the horse show, gets the prize money.

          It is usually subtracted OR sent to the person whose SS number is on the entry as the prize money receiver a month or so later.

            oh I am slow to day I didn't even think about the money being taken out of the show bill!!!

            I know they have had problems with this particular trainer charging them for ridiculous things so I think she assumed she kept it and I just went along!!!

            I can't believe this I am shaking my head in shame at my own forgetfulness!

            So just for future reference of a sum larger then show bill, it goes to the payer of the bills!? That's how I feel.

            Thanks for putting up with my silliness I am sick today and totally not thinking!

              No - unless things have changed in the years since I showed in classes that paid money, the horse wins the money. Not the trainer or the rider. So the horse's owner gets the money.

              That's why there's no money in equitation classes that are limited to amateurs. The judging is on the rider, who can't win money.

              Money-won goes to the horse, meaning the horse's owner.

              But if it was subtracted from the show invoice - and if your friend actually got the original show invoice - she should see what happened to it in this case.

                .
                Some of the shows we did (California) -- the money came about 30 days after the show
                was over -- by check to the owner of the horse who's SS number is on
                the entry form. Some of the regional Arabian shows give you the check attached
                to your champion ribbons - I wasn't aware that shows could or did deduct money
                from your final bill.


                I did notice that under owner information is says -- to advise if prize money is to be paid
                to a different payee and there is a place on your entry form for same ---
                so the trainer must have filled that portion out and had the money sent to him.

                  Whenever I've leased horses, as in paid owner a large sum to use them for a certain amount of months, and am paying all of their bills both at home and for shows, I am getting that money, subtracted from MY bill.
                  Although once I did ride a friends horse, I paid for its stalls/show fees, but did not pay her anything, so the prize $ (well as much as it can be from 5th place in the childrens hunter classic...) went to her, and that seems fair, since I was not 'leasing' him.

                    By convention, the prize money goes to the owner (or lessor).

                    But most entry blanks nowadays have a place to fill in (WITH SS#) who gets the prize money.

                    Did you sign the entry blank?

                      I don't think it's true that ammys can't win money. That would mean an ammy owner couldn't show their own horse in say, the Regulars. And I know darn well there are ammys in the sidesaddle division, which does often have prize money.

                        Ammys can win money, there are classes in the A/A and A/O that offer prize money.

                          Those are for classes judged on the horse, not the rider, you can not win money in an equitation class as an amateur and remain an amateur.

                          That is what KBEquine stated.

                            In a non equitation class, it is the HORSE that wins the money. That money (going to the owner or lessor) doesn't violate amateur status.

                            But if the owner and the rider are different, and the rider is an amateur, the money can't go to the amateur (non-owner) rider. That would be construed as paying the rider.

                            In equitation classes, if money were awarded, it would go to the rider (since it is the rider being judged) and would violate amateur status.

                              Amateurs can win the money in their role as OWNER.
                              In an A/A class, if the rider is not the owner, the rider can't take the prize money without violating amateur status.

                              But the owner can take the money.

                                Even if it doesn't exceed the show bill?

                                  But in those divisions its the horse being judged and thatt is actually winning the money, unlike an equitation class where its the rider being judged.

                                    That would be a good question to ask the USEF.

                                    If the rider (not the owner) paid the entry fees, etc., you could MAYBE say that the OWNER receives the prize money, and then "reimburses show expenses" for the RIDER, as permitted under GR1306.2.c.

                                      Oh, sure....but I wonder...what about prizes that exceed the gift allowance. Like the Medal kids winning a Pessoa saddle...can the adult medal riders win things like that? I haven't done eq since I was a kid, so I don't have a clue...
