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!

    I will be there with my Der Dau booth in the pavillion. I was told entries are light. Either way, should be fun!

      Enteries look really light. So I guess I get kind of a vacation.

        Not showing (obviously, or I'd know this!), but... can someone -please- clear up for me whether the show is 6 days, with showing starting on Tuesday, or 5 days with showing starting on Wednesday?

        The NorCal website schedule lists it as starting July 14th (Tuesday). But the Pebble Beach site shows it starting July 15th (Wednesday). I have a braider insisting to me that it starts Wednesday, and a friend showing who insists it starts Tuesday. I'm -so- confused!

          The horses may arrive on the 14th, but classes don't begin until the 15th. I can't think of any show around here that is 6 days long.

            Our barn heads up from San Diego for two weeks on July 20th. My DD will only be showing the first week, but some of our girls will be there for both weeks. We will have seven horses there. Most of the girls are juniors with a couple of adults. My DD will be doing the Children's Hunters (older), age group eq and the 3' and 3'3" medals.

            We have rented a house in Carmel for the two weeks and we are really looking forward to a great show and a fun vacation. I think that only one of the girls has shown here before so it is the first time for the rest of them.

              A couple of restaurant suggestions there:
              Fandango in Pebble Beach-awesome food, fun place. Not inexpensive, but a great menu, something for everyone. Fabulous wine list.
              Carmel: Luca. Italian and terrific.

                Oooh, I second and third Fandango. It's delicious! And pancakes from the Inn at Spanish Bay are to die for. Also, if you'd like to take dogs with you, there is an amazing doggie daycare in Pacific Grove that we use each time we go up. Unfortunately, I'm not showing... I'd love to ride at Pebble.

                  And I second Luca! Had dinner there on 4th of July, fantastic food and wine. Randomly ended up being seated next to carrot top as well Have fun at pebble everyone, it's a great show! Make sure you leave some time to check out Carmel beach as well as downtown Carmel.

                    It has been a tradition that Pebble in the summer and Menlo run Tuesday - Sunday. I think since wks 1 and 3 are light they run Wed-Sun, and 2 is Tues-Sun. I showed up today thinking the show started tom, as did a bunch of others LOL.

                    The Red Door Cafe in Pacific Grove is the BEST!

                      If anybody likes good quick Mexican... Papa Chanos in Monterey and Sand City are wonderful. Try the Al Pastor Tacos. Yum!

                      I grew up in this area.. there are tons of great places to eat.

                      Looking forward to seeing people out there!

                        Fandango is in Pacific Grove, not PB. Not too far away, though! Another nice one in PG is Passionfish.

                        You can't go wrong with Cantinetta Lucas in Carmel. Yum.

                        Hopefully this weather will hold for the shows - it's clear on the coast and should get into the high 70's at the showgrounds today. But I'm sure the sub-arctic Pebble Beach summer show weather will return at some point.

                            Any show where the main topic of convesation is where to eat is my kind of show! I have been dying to show at PB, maybe one day...

                              My understanding is PB is more of an equestrian vacation and "event" than a simple "horse show"

                                Perfect Pony - I certainly hope our time up at Pebble next week will be a vacation! I have been so busy at work this summer that this is the only time I have scheduled off.

                                DD is excited to be showing her horse here as she has heard from the trainer and other girls at the barn who have been in years past what a fun show it is.

                                We have been warned how easily the weather changes and will be bringing layers to wear.

                                  I spaced-it is Pacific Grove. 22nd Street right off Lighthouse Ave.

                                  There is a good place in Monterey also-Paradiso. It's right on Cannery Row. They have - or used to have- a crab risotto that was great.

                                    I was out there today, watched the green conf hunters and some jumpers go.

                                    Weather was foggy but not too cold. It can be much worse at PB. If any of you go.. look for me with my two french bulldogs. I will have them with me.

                                      My friend is heading down Sunday for the week with 3 or 4 horses and will be doing the 3'3" and up jumper classes as well as the $10,000 derby. I hope she kicks butt! Too bad the show is mostly during the week or I'd make the treck to take come pics and watch. I checked the class lists and most of her classes have an "average" of 20 riders in each one. The derby righ tnow has 21 and one of the other jumper classes currently lists 35 in the class.

                                        Hey, what classes are going on the 26th, if any? I'm going to be in the Bay Area that weekend and planned to take the 1 back home for a scenic drive. Would love to pop over if there's any cool classes going on....
