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!

    dates are around 7/22-23 and 8/3-4

    thanks guys!!!

    You might give Susan Harris at Spring Run Farm in Louisville, Kentucky a call. She has a horse trial every year, so may have a few stalls available for an overnighter. Check in the omnibus under Area VIII for contact information.

    Don't know much about Kansas except that it is a REALLY, REALLY long drive from one end to the other. I drive to Colorado every summer, and when I hit the Kansas leg, my mom calls me every 3 hours, and I always have to say, "Yep...still in Kansas."

      When I was driving back and forth from KS to VA I used to use one of those overnight stabling directories to stop in Lex/Louisville. You might want to get one.

      That said, I think Stoney Meadows overnights horses in Bonner Springs, KS. They are right off of 70 and about 25 miles east of Topeka. It should be about another 9.5-10 hours to Parker from there.

        KY stopover

        get in touch with Jo (qheventr@aol.com)
        as a veteran of NAYRC herself - she may be able to help. Her farm in in Paris, just NE of Lexington and about 10 miles from I-75.


        • #5
          I'm north of Indianapolis with plenty of stalls if you want to go a bit further on the first leg.


          • #6
            Let me make a few phone calls - we have lots of friends in the Leavenworth area who can probably help you out. I will e-mail you.

            Badger. . .any thoughts? She is a teammate of Andrew's.



            • #7
              We're in Bardstown, just south of Louisville and an hour west of Lexington on the Bluegrass Parkway. We have plenty o' stalls and even turnout if you want.

              If you're wanting to stay closer to Louisville, try Susan Harris at Spring Run - www.springrun.org , Mary Lowry at Alta Vista Farm - www.altavistafarm.com or Martha Lambert.

              In Lexington you could try Megan Lanzarone (www.teamceoeventing.com) or Chris Newton at Antebellum Farm. Chris is a vet at Rood & Riddle, so you could reach him that way.

              Or PM me and I can get you his info.
              To be conscious that you are ignorant is a great step to knowledge.

                If for some reason you decide to take I-40 instead, you're welcome to stay at my place. We're right off I-40 just outside Nashville and we have big stalls, turnout, rings, the works. Also have an apartment in the barn which is unoccupied if you want to bunk with the horses. PM me if you decide to come that way-

                  What interstate are you taking that you'll go through KY? I do the Maryland-Colorado drive a LOT and usually jet out I-70 the whole way there. If you get an early start, Indianapolis area would be a great stopover, though I admit I usually stop in Ohio and Kansas when I'm doing the drive w/horses.
                  Kansas is a looooooooooong state but it's very rural with lots of potential stopping points. I second the idea about those horse hotel guides -- a CURRENT one. You should at least have it with you in case you run into some kind of mechanical problem and can't get as far as you want in a given day.
                  I evented just for the Halibut.

                    If you'll be coming through Lexington, Saddles & Sheets http://www.saddlesandsheets.com/ is maybe 3 minutes off the interstate (I-64 that is... maybe 15 minutes off of I-75). They're on the nationwide overnight directory and have a lovely facility dedicated to layovers. You, your dreams, and your dogs would be welcome to stay with us (we're about 5 minutes from S&S). Good luck!!!

                      I am in Leavenworth, KS and a veteran of NAYRC 2000.
                      www.3chesnutsfarm.com to check out where we are if you want to stay with me. I have a spare room in my house if you need a place to crash too!


                      • #12
                        sorry, I spelled that wrong. www.3chestnutsfarm.com. We have room for dogs, a horse and you! We are about 20 minutes off of I-70


                        • #13
                          I board and train with LAZ so if your horse ends up staying at her place you and your dogs can crash at my house as long as the dogs are cat friendly. I have a fenced yard, two dog-friendly dogs and two cats. I'm about 15 minutes from LAZ's place. PM me if interested.

                              I think you should take revyhorse up on her very generous offer. Stoney Meadows is right off I-70 but not right off an exit, so you have a bit of meandering to get there and that means that 3 Chestnuts wouldn't be that much more out of the way. But at 3 Chestnuts you get an honest-to-goodness and terrifically fun eventer to host you.

                              Wonderful that you and Andrew are teammates together. Have a great run!
                              Hindsight bad, foresight good.

                                I second taking revyhorse up on her offer. 3 Chestnuts is not that difficult to find and has large stalls for overnights. Revyhorse has a lovely house, wonderful husband, two awesome dogs of her own and is just a heck of a lot of fun!
                                A horse may be coaxed to drink, but a pencil must be lead.
