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.

  • Jimmy Wofford clinic in KY(maybe )

    I'm trying to get the details worked out and need to gauge interest. We are less than an hour north of the KHP. He would only do one group of Novice, the rest above that. Early fall, no date yet set. Interest level and riding level please.

  • #2
    I'd be interested!

    I'm currently competing at Novice with an eye towards tackling training next year, possibly.

    If it matters, I'm in S.E. TN


    • #3
      I might be interested depending on the dates. My schedule is a bit hectic. I would have an intermediate horse that is running advanced and a CCI** in October and maybe a preliminary horse that is running a CCI* in October. I would be coming from WI, but my dad lives in Lexington.
      Keep us posted!

        If its not the last weekend in September(I'm in a wedding), I'd totally be interested!!
        and I know several other people who would also be interested, I think.

        Spread the word to some of the local-ish Pony clubs, and i bet you'd get some more intrest....

        I'd do prelim, or training(if there wasn't a prelim group). and some of the people I know, would probaly do novice or possible training.

          Considering how many (yeah right!) big name clinics are in the area, I'm sure you could get quite a few folks who would be interested (I would but currently I've got a training horse with a tumor and a pre-starter prospect ). I'll ask around at my trainer's barn though!


          • #6
            I would drive a very, very long way to ride with Jimmy Wofford.

            My only competing horse is Novice, but I've ridden up to Preliminary. My hope is the youngster will be ready for Training this fall, so I'd think a Training group under the eye of the master would be do-able.
            Click here before you buy.


            • #7
              I have a novice horse. I'd be in.


              • #8
                I'd be in, depending on the dates. Prob in a training group.


                • #9
                  I love riding for Jimmy. Depends on cost (stabling, can I stay in my trailer, etc.) and weekend (Flying Cross HT and KY Classic are possibly on my schedule). I have an experienced Preliminary horse which I also did a year at Intermediate.


                  • #10
                    Depending on the weekend, I have a Novice horse I might consider bringing down. Please keep us posted!

                    • #11
                      Yep, I'd love to do another clinic with him! I'm in the Louisville area and pretty sure you could generate a lot of interest, as he came here a couple years ago and had a full house! Depending on exactly when, I'll either have a training or prelim horse.


                      • #12
                        Wish my horse was ready. Wish I was ready. But I'd audit without a doubt and think that might be a big draw as well.


                        • #13
                          i would totally be there!

                          i loooovvvveeeee jimmy. i would take my training (eyes on prelim for the fall) horse.

                          please please please let me know if it will be happening.

                            jw clinic

                            I'd love to have an opportunity like that. Depending on cost, count me in with whatever the highest group you can get together is.


                            • Original Poster

                              Ok guys, so far so good.

                              I am waiting to hear back from Jimmy with a list of possible dates. Weekdays or weekends doesn't matter to me at all, that's probably the next question, though I'll ask Jim which he prefers. I plan to keep all costs to a minimum (yes really) since the object of this clinic is simply to a) Ride With Jimmy Wofford. b) Get our farm a damn fine "grand re opening".
                              c) Great Day in the Morning, we Get to Ride With JIMMY WOFFORD!!!!!

                              Once we get the dates set, I'll do the math and the goal is to get an absolutely top notch clinician in here (hopefully a recurring theme) and break even. I think too many times the expense keeps some that would really benefit from being able to attend, so gas and expenses being what they are, without insulting Himself, I'm going to make it as doable as possible for everyone.

                              There are three quite decent Holiday Inn type hotels within 5 minutes of the farm. Decent restaurants,(Cracker Barrel, Mexican, and the usual fast food) 2 places on the exit to get diesel and truck/trailer friendly gas stations. The county we live in is dry, save one Mexican restaraunt about 10 miles up the freeway. It is the only place you can get ANY alcohol at all within 25 miles. (Not that it matters to any of us).
                              I'll post more as I get more information from Mr. Wofford.

                                We're spending our money on horses and bourbon. The rest we're just wasting.


                                • #17
                                  Count me in too. I'm at BN, but by fall we will be ready for Novice and shouldn't be a problem to clinic at 'novice level.' I've always wanted to clinic with Wofford....this is so exciting.


                                  • #18
                                    I would be interested and I have one student that would be interested it would be great to ride with jimmy again. I have a horse that may be novice or training by fall and I have a student that will be training by fall.

                                    Where are you located North of KHP?


                                    • #19
                                      I might be interested and would probably be in a Novice group or Novice/Training if there is one like that.

                                        I'm pretty excited!
                                        I personally can do during the week, sort of... I have classes tuesday and thursday..
                                        I have to agree with you, expences are what usually keep me from going to more clinics...(and horse trials)
