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.

  • Jeremy Steinberg opinions?

    He is giving a clinic, and it's only $20 to audit. Is it worth it?

  • #2
    Lovely rider, did a great job with two young riders I've seen him coach, and he's good eye candy. Totally worth it!

      Jeremy has been in dressage for a very long time and is a very, very decent chap. 20 bucks is nothing to audit a clinic these days. most charge much more.

        I believe that sort of comment is called 'damning with faint praise' especially in reply to a question asking about his value as a clinician.

        Whether it is based on any actual knowledge of the man,however, is hard to say.


        • #5
          And I believe you are starting another one of your campaigns to stir up trouble.

          I meant exactly what I said. To elaborate, he's got decades of experience riding wonderful horses and is a very, very decent person, I've admired his skill for a very, very long time and have a lot of respect for his abilities, classical (he was with Deitrich von Hopfgarten for a very, very long time and so has the best of classical background), traditional methods, ability to communicate in a clinic situation and he has a great seat. He was a demo rider in the Isabel Werth clinic, and to top it off, he is a quiet, gentle, patient rider, he will work with any breed and loves them all, he has everything from quarter horses to warmbloods to children's ponies at his barn.

          And 20 dollars IS a very reasonable audit fee ESPECIALLY to see someone like him work, they must be charging such a reasonable fee just to encourage people to attend and allow others to share his knowledge. I would jump at the chance to audit a clinic with him, or ride in one.

          "actual knowledge of the man "

          No, I don't 'know' him in the Biblical sense.

          But it is not difficult to be aware of of someone of that quality who's ridden, competed, clinic'd, taught, shown and instructed for so long and been that generous with his knowledge with the riding community. And I'm sure I've forgotten much of his history and some others can fill in more details. I do know he has worked with and continues to work with the best there are and he is very, very good.

          The ONLY thing I don't like about him is he mostly clinics in the pacific northwest and not in my area.

            I find this rather funny, given that Jeremy is in his early 30s!

            ZIL, I have never seen him but hear good things. I think auditing (anyone) is nearly always worth it!


            • #7

              I would definately go! I have not personally worked with Jeremy, but know one of his students well, and she highly recommends him ~ and that's good enough for me!

              Have fun, maybe write a clinic report!!


              • #8
                since it is only $20.00 to go for the day...it is worth the trip just for that and to make up your own mind. He would seem to be busy teaching clinics most weekends which would go some way in telling you that he is certainly popular.


                • #9
                  Spend the $20 and a day, whether the clinician is good, bad or ugly...or not.

                  You may discover a master...

                  or the one guy on earth who has some novel solution to a problem you are having with your horse...

                  or a new way of explaining something quite standard yet endlessly described and debated like the half-halt or swing....

                  or you may learn exactly what NOT to do and an understanding about why not to ride or train that way.

                  Knowledge bases grow slowly and by accretion. And you would be hard pressed to find another "lesson" so cheap.

                    Where is the clinic?


                    • #11
                      Absolutely go. I've been riding with Jeremy for several years now and have benefitted greatly from his help. He's been able to make a profound change for every horse I've ridden for him - which says a lot as I've taken the pony, a Mustang, a wonderfully clever schoolmaster, and several "retrains" that needed some creativity to bring out their best :-). He has a very easy to understand style of teaching and is a nice person - sometimes hard to find that.. You'll get plenty of information to take home, regardless of your level. It'll be well worth your day and your $20...

                        Yes, I found those comments rather entertaining as well. I've always thought of Jeremy as a "kid" coming up through the ranks, certainly gaining experience, but not yet "seasoned". When he was in my area, I saw some things that I didn't like and some things that I did like. He had a decent but not huge clientele, now that he's moved out of the area but comes back for clinics, suddenly he's rather popular. For $20.00, go see for yourself.

                            I'm biased though - I was a long time client, and now clinic with him when he's back in my area.

                            And he'll be on the Dressage Cruise ! Yea !!!

                            Not sure which clinic the OP is referring to, but he'll be in San Diego March 20-21.

                              He has a very quiet seat and aids. He is a soft rider that I enjoy to watch. He trained several horses to GP already. He seems to be humble and has a cense of humor. He worked with Dietrich Von Hopffgarten.

                              He rides a very sensitive chestnut mare international quality as per Jan Brink words at the FEI trainers symposium.

                              I would enjoy riding and auditing him.

                                MVP gave good advice, $20 is good value for what you might learn. Have to agree with Dune also. JS is a good clinician/teacher, but would I send him a horse to ride - mmm,no. IMO, he's definitely a good teacher, go to the clinic.

                                  I clinic with Jeremy regularly. Definitely go audit!! I think of him as an old soul when it comes to horsemanship and he is classical in his training. But he does not get so caught up in theory that he doesn't have real world solutions to every day problems. Always in the best interest of the horse. He is the only clinician I trust to help me with my challenging mare. I have learned a ton from him and he is a great instructor/person and makes learning fun! I am surprised that some people on this board don't seem to be able to accept that trainer/instructors evolve in their abilities over time. I'm sure most of us don't train just like we did years ago, I hope we all strive to be better. He is young (I'm old), but with loads of experience and what I like is he is still willing to learn from other great trainers. The two I know he rides with are Gunter Seidel and Debbie Macdonald. So go audit and enjoy!!
