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!

  • Wondering about coaches and boarding in georgia

    Posting for a friend, my friend is going to high school in Rome GA, and is looking for a place to board her horse and an event coach. She is willing to board farther away as long as she could have him in some kind of training board during the week and only ride 3-4 days a week.

    any suggestions would be wonderful! PM me or post here!

    Rome, GA

    I take it that your friend is going to Darlington. There really are not that many eventing barns in the area if that is what you are looking for. I would recommend Southern Comfort Farm which is owned by Carolyn Wright if you want training board. It has an indoor which is nice in the winter. PM me if you want more details about the area. Tell her good luck at boarding school. It takes a bit of getting used to but it is a great experience. (I graduated class of '95).

      I would also recommend Carolyn Wright and her farm. she has evented for over 25 years and also has great contacts with the eventing community in area III. This young rider will also be very close to the Atlanta area and within 4 hours of several events in GA and SC. Good Luck

        I will also recommend Carolyn! She's amazing, and her indoor is great. Tons of turnout too. LOVELY place. If it was closer, I'd be there more often!

          Just up the road; http://www.aleatherman-equestrian.com/ With Michael Pollard at Carl Bouckaert's old Farm. Beautiful training facility. I think they attended Darlington too.

                You have Carl Bouckaert and Don Panoz mixed up.
                Bouckaert used to live in Chatsworth (near Rome) until getting divorced and moving to Chattahoochee Hills, south of Atlanta. His daughter (Natalie)and hubby (Michael Pollard) run the event barn out of the site of the Beaulieu Horse Trials in Chatsworth.
                Don Panoz owns Chateau Elan and his daughter (Lisa) is married (not to M Pollard) and lives close to Winder.

                  Nick Cwick IS moving to Newnan and will be there mid to late August. The farm is an absolutely lovely facility, and should suit your friend's needs quite well. Full training board is available.

                  PM me for more details and contact information, pics, etc.

                    I don't know how many of you are actually familiar with the Rome Ga area - but - it is an 80 mile (2 hr) trip one way to Newnan. I don't know about the OP's friend, but that is too much for a kid/horse at school.

                    If you go to this http://www.kellysolutions.com/ga/equ...archbyCity.asp website you will find a searcheable database of Georgia Dept of Ag licensed boarding stables and be able to search for those in Rome or Bartow County. Phone numbers and disciplines are also listed.

                        North Dakota, Carolyn's place would be the best bet if your friend is in school, all the other places are great, but Newnan is WAY to far, as posted above and I'm not really sure that the Pollard's take boarders. She could go for lessons, but i'm pretty sure they only have their horses on the farm, it has not been a public boarding facility in the past. The area III young rider and adult rider reps are great resources for GA.

                              Ya, Rome and Newnan are not exactly close...and the route takes you right thru ATL...not exactly commuter friendly.

                                  thank you equibrit. I am from California originally and wrote nice things about Nick on the thread that was devoted to that topic. That said, even I can use google maps to see the distance between Rome and Newnan. I find that level of self promotion tasteless.

                                    Darlington is near HWY 27... you take that straight to Swamp Fox Farm where Nick Cwick is relocating in Newnan...SFF is just off 27 easy drive...miss Atlanta and yes..I have driven from SFF to Rome. Takes about 1hr and 20 mins. Many have commutes more than that......! I'm sure there are other barns closer to Darlington.....
