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!

Luis Denizard Clinic-Take my spot, please

  • Luis Denizard Clinic-Take my spot, please

    My horse had to go to the clinic for IV oxytet treatment for lyme :-(

    My barn is having a clinic this Thurs and Fri with Luis Denizard and I was supposed to ride in it. It would have been my 3rd clinic with him. He is an awesome clinician so I am trying to find someone to take my place at a slight discount so I don't have to pay in full as the clinic was full and if one cancels, unless the spot is taken, I will lose all my entry.

    The barn it will be at is in Allentown NJ near Cream Ridge. There is overnight stall available if needed.

    PM me if interested and I will supply all details as I don't want this to be an "advertisment" which is why I did not even put the barn's name in.

    Someone take advantage of my loss....you won't regret it! BTW you can do 1 or 2 days. I am totally bummed but my horse needs to get well.

        Did your friend give any specifics? My pickiness about instructors/schools of thought/methodology cannot be overstated. His website gives no concrete info on his ideology.

        What issues did he choose to address with your friend? How?

          I would be happy to give you my trainers name and number and as 2 professionals you could ask her....I am sure she can tell you all you need/want to know. My trainer is currently showing Prix St George and does each and every clinic Lou has given.
          Or I can give you the name and number of a long time student of his who has put together all the clinics here.

              Meh.... honestly, my last concern when it comes to riding instructors. The CEO of McDonalds is 'nice,' but they sell crap.

              Technique.
              Knowledge of human and equine anatomy.
              Skill at translating a able riders 'feel' into a concrete sets of instructions that a less skilled rider can execute.

              These are the details that interest me.
              Parrotnutz, is there any video on youtube?

                Isabeau:
                Rhythm and Blues Stables :there is the contact info there. If you are suspect of them pushing to make money...remember I already paid and am trying to recoup some of my monies.
                I am not here to advertise Lou.....I will repeat, if you want to know about him, talk to my trainer Heidi Lemack....also, on the website you will see what other clinicians we have had.

                This is a wonderful place in the fact that there is no drama and only 7 boarders in a 22 stall barn. They have many of their own horses and also breed their mare every year. Obviously, they don't make a ton of money boarding or with clinics but run a small business. Also not a lesson "mill"
                Heidi couldn't "sell" anyone if she tried....not that kind of person. It is her and her husband and her parents who all live on the farm. The kind of people they are: 3 years ago I had an accident...they picked up my dogs and kept them 3 months. The Mom stayed with me for my surgery as I have no family.
                So see, if you are suspect you won't get the truth, I think you will. Heidi is very knowledgeable.

                I repeat....I am only trying to recoup some monsey....even offered a discounted price so maybe I can do it. They probably won,t charge me because that is the way they are, but I feel an obligation as they saved me a spot since the last clinic because I commited then.

                        I just wanted to discuss clinician credentials in general. And you seemed to feel I was attacking you/Luiz, so I took it private so nobody felt I was 'out to get them.'

                        I may start another thread on this topic. I'm pretty interested in teacher credentials/methodologies and how horse folks behave as consumers.

                        As for the 'horse hugger,' methinks he lifted that idea from someone else.

                          No I most certainly did not think you were attacking....I kep telling you to contact my trainer or the other person who helped put together the clinic because either could answer you questions better than I......doesn't that make more sense ? Since you and my trainer are both Pros I figured it would be easier for her to answer your "qualification" questions.

                          I was merely trying to find someone to take my place at his clinic. I can say, with 40 years riding behind me, that I am not interested in taking a clinic unless I am going to learn something or get a different view on things and I have to say he did that for me. He taught each person at their level and did point out anatomical reasons for thing on both horse and rider. I have a very subtle problem with my ride leg/foot due to screws in my ankle and achilles tendon injury....he picked it up and helped me to see how I can correct it and my balance in a way slightly different than I was doing..
                          My horse is very green and sensitive and he put it on a level that helped my horse instead of stressing him.

                          Anyho.....I thought maybe someone had heard of him or wanted a new experience so I posted to maybe recoup some monies, period.

                          Seems some have done a clinic with him...see other posts, but because one said he was nice you poo-pooed that too. I did nott ake it because he was "nice" that was just an added bonus....but he was all business during the lessons.

                          Maybe you should come down and audit one day...we are only about 1 hour from where you are. I can certainly let you know when the higher level riders are going.

                          Now back to my regularly scheduled program.....anyone want my spot? You will have a terrific learning experience. :-)

                          I also said I would absorb a bit of the fee.

                          PS: I kow nothing about the hugger thingie....he did not come with them in hand to sell and never even mentioned them.

                            Like I said, I have a friend that has cliniced with him 3 times. She has arabians, one going 3rd level, one going training level and he was just as helpful to her as he was to the people on the WBs. He helped her start half steps on Sunday.

                            Her regular instructor has a new horse schooling 3rd aimed for grand prix that she ships to Florida to ride with him in the winter.

                              I have spent many hours in the same arenas as Lou. I have seen him ride, teach, and be taught. He is a highly skilled teacher and very professional. His experience as the director of riding at Johnson & Wales certainly should speak for his experience as an educator... I know many of his old students from the college are professionals now and still ride with him when they can.

                                Thanks for all that have commented on Lou.....being a mere amatueur I guess some cannot take my word for it....even if I have been riding 40 years :-0

                                He so helped me improve my greenie in one clinic!
