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!

    Why do I have a feeling that *****IF***** MB approached asking what he could do make everything right, after a supposed 6-7 days of torture stated by LK herself, he was pleading to LK and RG for himself and his family and employees to stop BEING tortured?

      That's both sad and a bit worrisome.

      Well, a lot of hard work would go a long way toward improving her success. Talent helps - absolutely. But frequently it isn't all that it takes to succeed at anything, for any significant length of time.

            This is apparently typical, classic Kanarek. She probably had some run ins in the past with Spreiser's assistant trainer, JI, a very talented up and coming dressage rider, while in NC. But, keep in mind, LK doesn't accept responsibility for anything, as I've mentioned several times on this thread. She just lashes out and threatens and fantasizes and has tantrums.

            Can you imagine her on a witness stand being questioned by a highly regarded attorney who has done his homework?

              I imagine she’s going to be a head-scratching, hair-pulling witness for both attorneys.

I don't understand what she thought she was accomplishing by addressing Ms. Sprieser in this manner or her assistant trainers. It strikes me as bizarre. That is why I asked if someone else could make sense of it. I can't. Maybe someone else has a LK Rosetta Stone or something.
                Classic LK spew from what has been shown about her past behavior. She and the assistant trainer are acquainted and it didn't end well.

                  One must show up and ride to be successful rather than bailing on lessons. It takes more than throwing money at imported horses to make a successful competitor. LK seems to have wanted to buy success rather than work hard for it.

                    But the jury will see right through her. I don't doubt MB will serve some time, but it wouldn't surprise me at all to hear a not guilty verdict on the attempted murder charges or a hung jury, unless self defense is proven. After all, all we have is LK's detailed account of the day with appropriate portions missing. Why those recollections are not told is a puzzle....she tells so much about everything else. For sure those missing recollections would not paint her and her muse in a positive light or she would have posted them. Just my thoughts with nothing to go on other than her patterns of dangling carrots.

                    • Is it possible this trial will be televised? Till the trial, all this is speculation, recipe swapping and sniping/snarking. Keep on with the recipe swapping -- that's the best part.

                                https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=lyuSKnW3jcY

                                Pretty nifty.

                                Oh, I don't know. I enjoy fooling with recipes and figuring out different ways to make things. Particularly useful if you find yourself with a picky eater, or someone with an allergy or something.
                                Exactly right. You have to weigh it, not measure it. You probably already know that, but others might make the leap of measuring two cups to one, but that actually would be incorrect.

                                I forgot who it was that substituted sour cream for oil in a chocolate cake on here, but I tried that on New Years day and it was FABULOUS!!! I used to do it with mayo, but the sour cream was the best!

                                  Funny how that shows up in the results. Horses don't let sloppy habits slide.

                                      Sour cream and buttermilk are two magic ingredients when baking.

                                      When baking a chocolate cake, coffee is another magic ingredient to punch up the flavor.

                                      When making ramp soup, cream is called for and is a must-have ingredient. Mine is nothing much, but the best ramp soup I ever had clearly had cream in it. And experience. And love. And pixie dust or something.

                                        • Today seems to be a savory, delicious kind of day, so let's go with Julia Child's classic Boeuf Bourguignon!

                                          INGREDIENTS
                                          • 3 pounds beef chuck or other boneless stewing beef, cut into 2-inch cubes and patted dry
                                          • 2 ¼ teaspoons kosher salt, more to taste
                                          • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
                                          • 5 ounces lardons, pancetta or bacon, diced (about 1 1/4 cups)
                                          • 1 onion, finely chopped
                                          • 1 large carrot, sliced
                                          • 2 garlic cloves, minced
                                          • 1 teaspoon tomato paste
                                          • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
                                          • 1 750-milliliter bottle of red wine
                                          • 1 large bay leaf
                                          • 1 large sprig of thyme
                                          • 8 ounces pearl onions, peeled (about 12 to 15 onions)
                                          • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms, halved if large (about 4 cups)
                                          • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
                                          • Pinch sugar
                                          • Chopped flat-leaf parsley, for garnish
                                          PREPARATION
                                          1. Season beef with 2 teaspoons salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Set aside for at least 30 minutes at room temperature, or chill in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.
                                          2. In a large Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed pot with a tightfitting lid, cook lardons over medium-low heat until fat is rendered and lardons are browned and crisp, about 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer with a slotted spoon to a paper towel-lined plate. Reserve fat in pot.
                                          3. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Raise heat under pot to medium-high and cook until fat is starting to smoke. Lay half the beef cubes in a single layer in the pot, leaving space between pieces. Cook until well browned on all sides, 10 to 15 minutes; transfer pieces to a plate as they brown. Repeat with remaining beef.
                                          4. Reduce heat, if necessary, to prevent burning. Stir in onion, carrot and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and cook until soft, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
                                          5. Stir in garlic and tomato paste, and cook for 1 minute. Stir in flour, cook for 1 minute, then add wine, bay leaf and thyme, scraping up brown bits at bottom of pot. Add browned beef and half the cooked lardons back to pot, cover, and transfer to oven. Let cook until beef is very tender, about 1 1/2 hours, turning meat halfway through.
                                          6. Meanwhile, in a large skillet set over high heat, combine pearl onions, mushrooms, 1/4 cup water, the olive oil and a pinch each of salt, pepper and sugar. Bring to a simmer, then cover and reduce heat to medium, cooking for 15 minutes. Uncover, raise heat to high, and cook, tossing frequently, until vegetables are well browned, 5 to 7 minutes.
                                          7. To serve, scatter onions and mushrooms and remaining cooked lardons over stew, then top with parsley.
