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!

  • Photographer for Northeast Benefit?

    Anybody got a website?

  • #2
    I believe the photographer's website is aclassicexpression.com

    I haven't seen photos posted yet, but someone in my barn said they expect to have them up early this week.


    • #3
      I looked at some proofs during the show, I wouldn't get your hopes up. It definitely shows that the photographer does mostly morgan/breed shows and is new to jumping pics. Althoughthe nice thing is that he took photos of almost every jump on course so you have A LOT to choose from!


      • #4
        Embarassed to say.. never bought pro pix before.

        How does it work?

        My horse was shown by someone else; I wasn't there to express interest in any particular class with the photographer. Is it realistic to think I can go to the website, once updated, and purchase photos of my guy NOW (afterthefact)?

        I would imagine it should work that way, but one never knows.


        • #5
          Yes, he seemed to be making the rounds on the rings, and the way he seems to have initially set it up online is by class #, so if you know class #'s, you're all set! Order away!


          • #6
            Does anyone else see proofs posted yet? When I click on a link now, it takes me to a page not found error.


            • #7
              M. Owen we had a similar experience...the pictures that were up until this morning appeared to be last year's pictures. Perhaps the site is down for him to load this year's images?

              WRT the proofs, Once Bitten (Twiceshy's DD) had a chance to look at her proofs prior to leaving and said there were some AMAZING pics but also a lot of shots from/of behind. From looking at video her friends took of her trips it looked like he attempted 4-5 shots each trip.


              • #8
                Twiceshy, what days were you guys there?? I wish I had seen you guys! People from my barn who saw the proofs had some nice butt shots too. Nothin' I love more than a butt shot in breeches!


                • #9
                  The photographer replied to my email this am and said he hope to have them all up by tomorrow night. I can't wait, my daughter had a GREAT show!
                  Drop the drama and ride!


                  • #10
                    OnceBitten was there on Thursday for a brief morning performance then stayed to hang out and watch. Someone had to stay behind and earn a living that day...

                    DD also happened to catch a nice shot of kdriding's daughter and will hopefully be providing a copy of said picture shortly...


                    • #11
                      I'm still getting an error message on the website for the photographer

                      and never fear, kdriding, i'm searching for my USB cord

                        I had a TON of butt pics from this guy. Of course, those were the ones my horse was jumping best in...
                        also, my mom ordered two prints while at the show, and they turned out horrible. The colors were way off and the photo paper he used was cheap. I would buy the cd of pictures and print your own.

                          His flash made my chestnut look a little too orange-y. I agree with the poster who said that he seems to be more experienced in the Morgan/Breed shows - one of the pictures he took of my horse over fences in the indoor was a good half-second too early :\

                            I have faith my dear. You are quite the photographer! Haley had an incredible show for their first "A" show!!! Videos are coming as soon as I can edit my voice off them. No one wants to listen to my crazy banter during her rounds! lol

                              Can someone tell me the heights of the jumps for the Jumper classes? I'm looking for an old friend and want to see if she was there. However, scrolling through a gazillion pictures of every jumper class would be too time prohibitive.


                              • #16
                                Anyone remember the class number of the Hopeful Jumpers, held in the jumper ring, Wednesday & (if memory serves) Thursday morning?

                                Also, class numbers of Adult/Childrens' hunter classes on Saturday?


                                • #17
                                  153 154 155 were hopeful jumpers
                                  and if by adult/children's you mean specials, then those were 115, 116, 117 on saturday

                                    How about the higher jumpers?

                                      Thanks Dano.. That clinches it.

                                        That photographer needs some help with his website.
