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!

  • Eventing Barns near Hilton Head SC?

    I am moving to Hilton Head SC and bringing my TB eventer. ANy suggestions for boarding barns or eventing trainers near Hilton Head? Thanks!

  • #2
    Really?! Glad to have an eventer move to the area. There are NO eventing barns here. It is HJ land and a few DQ's. I think there may be one place with eventers in Ga. I can get that info for you. I am at a private barn I live in the town of Beaufort but I worked in, and know the Bluffton/HHI area well. Email me directly and I can fill you in. Celeste@cpwllc.com. Very glad to welcome you to the area.

      Me again. On my computer now so I can type more. Here is the name of the Georgia barn that I thought did some eventing but I don't see mention of eventing on their website. Echelon Sporthorses -912-772-3897
      1768 Pleasant Acres Rd
      Guyton, GA 31312

      I do know that there are some eventing ladies at Richmond Hill - a bit further south past Savannah.

      Also, Palmetto Bluff/Longfield Stables has a small xc feild but it's rarely used and I don't think anyone there events or coaches. Also VERY $$$.

      Rose Dhu Plantation is a good commercial facility. There are alot of private farms and small boarding operations too.

      We haul to Aiken to train/compete. Through friends you can find local private plantations for getting in LSD work and gallops and maybe a few jumps. I am working with Huspa Plantation to host Combined Tests and Derbies - the first one will be held in September. They do boarding also but probably too far for you. I can recommend commercial and private barns in the area if you want. Celeste

        Welcome to this area. I am organizing clinics with Lellie Ward, a 4 star international eventer from Aiken, SC. Clinic locations are about 45 minutes to an hour from Hilton Head. There is one gentleman that lives on HH that comes to the clinics.

        Go to www.paradisefarmaiken.com for information about Lellie. I am in the process of organizing a clinic for late July. If you are interested send me a pm with your contact info, and I will keep you up to date about the clinics.

          Hey there KLC! Glad you chimed in. I thought of you all being a good contact for the OP.
          I wasn't able to make the last clinic but please keep me informed of upcoming dates. I wonder if folks would come to ride with her at Huspa too? I am trying to help get some events/shows/clinics there. Hope all is well. Celeste.


          • #6
            Hey zap. I can make Huspah a clinic location and see who all will be interested in coming. We can do discounts for the pony clubbers. I had several participants from SC, so going to Huspah should not be a problem. I'll email you.

              Thank You SOO Much for the info - I feared it was not exactly a hotbed for eventing LOL but great to know some possibilities!

                My hometown!!

                Good luck finding other eventers. There are VERY few in the area (there isn't any land to ride!). Palmetto Bluff has an xc course, as was mentioned, but last I knew board was $1,300 per month. I can PM you a list of barns to look at and barns to avoid if you're interested. I lived there for my first 21 years.

                    Not sure about barns but you can trailer to seabrook island and ride your horse on the beach and swim in the ocean
                    Gallop on

                      slewsue, there are folks who event in Charleston, so not too far. Of course we all go to Aiken to show and school a bunch, as well as Gibbes farm. Even in Charleston we are kind of spread across multiple small farms. There is a local farm that hosts Beth Perkins once a month for clinics, if you are interested in getting on the email chain PM me. They have room to trailer in for the night. Also, you can school hunt fences at Middleton for a change of pace. And, there is a new local CT series, google Tidelands Combined Test, and you should find it.

                        When I visited SCAD in May they said there was an eventing barn nearby, can't think of the name. The young lady who showed us around said some of the SCAD students who did eventing went there, we passed by the turnoff for it when we were heading back to the beach. You could try calling SCAD and ask, but maybe it is one of the barns already mentioned here?

                        I think it was Rose Hill in Bluffton, but I don't see anything about eventing on their website(not really their website but a real estate website they are listed on) but I could swear the lady at SCAD said they did some eventing training.

                          Rose Hill is not an eventing barn. It is a nice boarding facility that allows outside trainers somewhat. Palmetto Bluff is the best facility, but no real trainers, I do believe they allow outside trainers now.
                          Echelon Sporthorses has a young but enthusiastic trainer ( I like her!), although I think she is heading more in a H/J direction.
                          There are some cute private barns in the area, but it is not an eventing spot. Most folks ship to Aiken to do eventing.

                            That sounds great - I currently live in New Jersey and we take our guys to the beach a lot in the winter - I love it!
