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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

    Meh, Congress is a huge event, you don't have to qualify, right? So it's a big party and destination event for so many who love to show and the social aspect. It's fun

    I know, right? It looks like a strip mall from the 1990s.

    It's definitely not how I would have designed it either

    Also remember, not all horses are there the entire time. Some are and some will leave when their classes are over. A big WP barn here in GA has trailers moving the whole 3 weeks/month of Congress. They ferry horses back and forth depending on what they are entered in.
    Yes, the Hunters were in and out in 5 days.

    Not to push my interests too much, but the above is exactly why many people (like me) own Quarter Horse Hunters, and due to AQHA's approving the English Special Events, where the Working Hunter Under Saddle and all over fence classes can be held at a nice H-J venue, alone or combined with an open H-J show, it is going to get better. The quality of horse is there, we just needed more appropriate facilities and H-J discipline specific judges . We now have those,(Currently 14 of 24 AQHA Specialized OF judges also have USEF R cards) so check out the AQHA English Special Events FB page.

    Who would have guessed that my query about turnout would produce so many interesting responses. Thank you everyone. Though now I'm slightly worried about dog health and poop covered grass!

    There are 2 covered hot walkers there as well. You can call or text them and they will schedule you a time so at least they can move around a bit. The footing was nice in there too.

    Even though the stalls were done up so nicely and curtains were up on a lot of the aisles, we still walked down them as you really had no choice! We kept getting "stuck" and at a dead end. So some of the staff there said you can walk down any aisle you like. It was kinda weird but no one said anything....

    I saw a lot of people with Soft Rides on the front for I assume the concrete.

    Re: getting horses out of their stalls....I just remembered that some entrepreneurial types with super broke geldings offer ponying services by the half hour or so at Congress. Great service for all the young halter and longe line horses. Yes, there are Longe Line money stakes classes for both western and HUS yearlings - open and non-pro.

    I think cost of space, but it’s just a guess. I’m way more WTF than WEF.

    Just watched a livestream. Saw 2 yo HUS final class. Not the style that would win open HUS (but those arent 2 yo either!) but really performed well. It was nice to see them trotting out and cantering in an open frame. Impressive that when they lined up all the babies just stood on a loose rein. If you are showing horses this young under saddle, it was nice to see such a natural way of going. Also noted some Huge fake tails and really s-l-o-w walks. They announced results from, I think four different judges and then the overall results. They won money!

    Also saw part of the 2 yo western pleasure class. I found that a little harder to watch as they were framed and slowed like the older horses and you could see the balance difficulties, But that may be because I am not generally a WP fan and I worry about the amount of training of these babies.

    We had friends coming to some big competition here ask to bring horses a slow day to let them have room to roam a bit.
    We advised them their horses would stress more going to yet another place than just staying there in their little safe spot in the world they could relax in.
    They brought them anyway and later agreed, horses were tired from their short "vacation" in a new place, compared with those that didn't get to go, so they didn't repeat that.

    Horses live by routines and do best the more everything stays the same.
    Even with continuous changes, don't add even more to those.
    In those many day shows, they get to exercise and train each discipline at certain hours, like reiners from 2 to 4 am in such and such arena, etc.

    I'm totally ignorant so this is an honest question: do the horses get any kind of turn out/hand grazing or is their exercise limited the rings in which they compete?
