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.

  • Horse boarding/training around Lexington KY

    I know there are old threads about this but it seems like a lot of those trainers and barns aren't currently in use.

    I am looking for a barn with a trainer who regularly shows in the area and in other states. Board needs to be under 700 and the trainer needs to be experienced.My horse will be doing BN this spring then moving up to Novice later in the summer. I am looking for a fun and competitive environment. I love to learn and will be moving down to Lexington in the summer before I start college in the fall at UK.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    I dunno...under 700 might be pushing it for full care and, probably an indoor, close to town in a name trainers barn. How far can you drive?
    When opportunity knocks it's wearing overalls and looks like work.

    The horse world. Two people. Three opinions.

      Megan Moore at Team CEO, but I don't know what her prices are like and if she has an opening.

          Within 40 mins. I am negotiable on price if the facility is worth it.

            Megan Moore at Team CEO and Jenn O'Neill at Antebellum are both about 10 mins from KHP. Don't know about rates. Neither have indoors. Wonderful ladies, though.
            Yes, I ride a pony. No, he would not be ideal for your child. No, he is not a re-sale project...

              Do you have the contact info for Jenn? The number on her website doesn't work.

                Lindsey Oaks is located about 20 minutes from campus at Rock Ridge Farm. Unsure of boarding rates, but great facility with large all weather ring, tons of space to hack and condition, and a cross country course.

                Lindsey has competed up to CCI*** and is aimed at competing at Rolex in a few weeks. Private message me if you would like her phone number!

                  Carriage Station Farm/Cathy Weischhoff

                  Her place is fabulous and she's not only a terrific trainer, she's a wonderful horseman.

                  I have one boarded and one in training right now. I think the boarded one is close to what you want to pay.

                  I wish I was closer, but she's the only one around I felt good about sending my horses to, knowing I wouldn't see them or check on them for three months. (shoulder surgery on both shoulders meant no horse work over the winter.) There is not an indoor, but there is an ENORMOUS covered arena. She goes out of state all year long and has a super fun, super conpetitive group. If I had the liberty of boarding with her year round (I'm a bit over an hour away) I'd be there in a heartbeat. Doesn't matter when you show up, place and horses are always in top shape.

                    You're gonna get a lot of replies - tons of absolutely WONDERFUL coaches and facilities. If at all possible, wean it down to 4 or 5 and then visit each, preferably during a show. There's probably10+ can't miss facilities based on your description, so how YOU fit with the group and the coach (take a lesson if possible - teaching styles differ) will probably be the deciding factor. Welcome to Kentucky and Lexington!!! We look forward to meeting you and seeing you at the shows! Hell, I'll even throw in a few more names to the excellent list above - Dorothy, Emily, Tanya, Suzie, Jorge, Mary (and I'm sure I missed a bunch). Check out the instructor's list on MSEDA, the Masterson Associates on the MET site, the ICP qualified instructors on the USEA web site, and I believe the Kentucky Horse Council has a list. If you get to Rolex, stop at Wise Choice and ask Dave!

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

                          i second cathy weischoff and carriage station farm. great group of people and a great barn. cathy is a great instructor!!!


                          • #14
                            I ride with Cathy, whenever I can get down there. Her covered arena is lovely and HUGE. It is very nice when it gets hot out, because the breeze can blow through and you stay out of the sun. Cathy has nice cross country jumps. She takes groups to school at the KHP on cross country schooling days, too. Of course, most of the instructors in our area will do that.

                            Welcome to KY!
                            When in Doubt, let your horse do the Thinking!

                              I'm actually going to be going down to Lexington in about two weeks and looking at Lindsey Oaks and Jenn O'Neill and the facilities they work at. I'll report back here!

                                Alexandra Knowles, who is also riding at rolex this year is based in Paris, and Sarah Shade Kleintop www.sseventing.com is based in Georgetown and is a level 2 ICP instructor.

                                    I know this is an old thread also but since it was brought back to top, does anyone know if these barns allow you to just trailer in for lessons?

                                      Fun seeing these old posts resurrected, and realizing the changes that time brings to all of us. Megan now has an indoor, and Jenn is building one!

                                        Both Jenn and Megan do haul in lessons
