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!

  • Anyone heard of Elisa Wallace?

    Came across her name while searching for boarding barns in my area...looks like she is supposed to have a pretty nice facilty up here somewhere, although it doesnt look like they offer board.

    Just wondering if anyone has heard about her or ridden with her.

    Elisa is a very good young professional in the area. I have been a student and a client as she rode my horse for over a year taking him to the CCI* level. Very good rider/trainer and teacher. Quality care for all horses under her care.

    I believe the barn does take boarders, but helps to be in some type of training program with Elisa (my experience is that she can be very flexible to design what fits) -- very nice facility - beautiful barn, big arena and you and your horse will get fit - there are mountains to climb!

        The facilty looks very nice, and is really only about 10 miniutes from me. Wouldnt mind taking lessons, etc as I figure out if I want to do this whole evening thing.

        I found an old add that stated they took boarders, but found nothing on her website about such.

        I'll see if the email address listed is correct and shoot her an email.

          Just going off memory, but IIRC, she is the daughter of Rick Wallace, so has been in eventing all her life.

          She has posted here in the past, and stands (or stood) a son of BOC for eventing. I think his name is Cor Magnifique, and he has Bonne Nuit/Cormac lines.

            Yes, she is Rick's daughter. IIRC she moved to North GA from FL a few years back. I have seen her compete at Red Hills, and she is a lovely rider!

              First met her when she was around 5 or so. Always been a good sort and had the benefit of learning everything from the ground up from her parents.

              She is standing Cor Magnifique and I believe has working him under saddle. The horse's uncle, Corcall, was bred by Nancy Gosch and ridden by Margaret Gosch (daughter) to Advanced 3-day level back in the 1980's. They finished in the top 10 and often in the top 5 at Rolex, Chesterland and Radnor. Cor Angelise, a sister, competed through Intermediate.
              In case you are concerned about his size - his grand dam, MacCall (I think this is spelled correctly) stood 17.2h.

                Elisa's great! I rode with her all throughout high school, and still remain good friends with her today. She's incredibly talented. Very, very good with problem horses as well as finding diamonds in the rough.

                  Elisa is a wonderful girl with a ton of talent...she is very honest and will do right by anyone who works with her. She is extremely down to earth and humble..but she knows her job and will always do it 100%. Can't say enough good things about her.

                    Sounds like she may have an opening next month. Hopefully after this winter storm I can get out and meet her and see her farm!

                      Well, this is a disapointing thread. She doesn't have any pictures lifted from crossword puzzles on her website? Or stolen from COTHers facebook pages? All you guys can do is say NICE things? Well, back to the HJ forum...

                        I know very little about eventing but one of my friends competed for many years. She is a big fan of the Wallaces. They are ethical and take excellent care of their horses. I watched Elisa compete at the AECS and while she was on course a different rider was thrown and the horse was loose and heading in the same direction as Elisa. Her dad was in the same tent as we were, he jumped up ran to where the horse was and managed to grab the reins of a galloping horse and bring it to a stop. It was amazing to see.

                        Is Little Kentucky Farm near you? I have another friend that knows Zeb and speaks highly of her.

                          Wouldn't that be deemed "unauthorized assistance"??

                          Sounds like this Elisa character is a GEM!

                            LKF is semi close, but probably too rich for my blood. I have heard great things about Zeb too. I dont think she does boarders though.

                            I am not looking for training board or a barn where I HAVE to take lessons and show "X" times a month...which is what I told Elisa. I am looking for a quiet barn where, if I wanted to needed assistance, I could take lessons, clinic, etc.

                            I am still trying to figure out if I want to do this whole eventing thing (also told her that) or stay in the jumpers...

                              A couple of people who lesson at our barn also lesson with Elisa. They are mostly eventers, but trailer over to get some jumping lessons in our covered ring during foul weather =] Elisa is good people.
