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!

    Mine is about $96 for a follow up with a $50 call fee it so. If I have 3 or more horses at the farm, call fee is waived.

      Laurie, do you mind if I ask who you use? I'm in SE PA right near Fair Hill, so maybe not too far for your chiro. I have one horse I'd love to have looked at.

        In NJ you need to be a vet to do chiropractic work. The woman I use was a human chiropractor, then went to vet school and now does only horses. She charges $230 for an adjustment and acupuncture. Not sure what the call fee is, but my horse gets both treatments in one visit. Usually don't need her again for another 6 months.

        Chestnut Run, she's in Frenchtown, NJ, maybe not too far from you. She travels to several states to work on horses. Her name is Dr. Carole Edwards.

            Me too. I don't pay a call fee. That is the total cost. It's about $50 more for the first visit and then it's a straight $125. I pay this for a vet that specializes in chiro work.

              $90 for chiro and saddle fit check, more if the flocking is adjusted. Experienced DVM.

                $35 for the local gal, who is quite good, $40 for the really great body worker and chiro that I have to haul to... But hauling costs me $90 to get there. If she ever comes here it is $60.

                Neither is a vet but both are certified in chiro, bowen, and energy work and I have been happier with what they have done than I was with the MUCH more expensive DVM... As was my horse.

                Definitely a little woo-woo, but if the horse gives it a thumbs up, then I am game.

                    So this person is not a vet but is a doctor in human chiro right?

                        Mine is a human/equine chiro not a vet. We split the trip fee between 3-4 boarders. Ends up costing me 65.00 per horse, although last time he checked my mare and told me she didn't need much, so he didn't charge me anything. I have seen a real difference since using him too- I'm super happy.

                          I use a vet who was previously a fantastic routine care vet, and now specializes in only chiropractic, acupuncture, and occasional sport horse medicine; seems like I usually pay about $150, splitting a visit with a neighbor, and we live 90 minutes from her. Worth every penny to me as my horse is amazingly sounder and more comfortable after an adjustment.

                            Nope, not a human chiro, but has done class work in horse bodywork, acupuncture, energy work, and Bowen.

                              OK, not trying to be mean here at all but you are getting the wool pulled over your eyes. The reason it is only $35 is because it is not a legit business, they have no insurance, they are not certified in chiro, they have no business practicing veterinary med, hmmm and probably many other things! This is like saying that your hair dresser charges $20 for chiro on your horse and is certified to do so! I am actually surprised it isn't cheaper since they are not legit and have no training. You may want to do your homework, they can't be certified in chiro.

                              I only bring it up because if someone has little or no training and aren't suppose to be doing it, it is not right to have other people think you can get it done that cheap. Sadly, much like people that call themselves equine dentists. Sure you can pay $40 for a float, but it's a complete waste!

                                I think the assessment and adjustment were $75.00 and the call was split among 4 owners. I think it was about $100 + tax.

                                by a vet who specializes in chiro work.
                                My own vet is currently taking the course and will be certified next month!

                                  The requirements and certifications vary from state to state. While I would be careful about using a non-DVM, it doesn't mean someone isn't skilled. My state doesn't require certifications and I pay $130 to a person that isn't a vet.

                                    $125 for one horse, $110 for more than one. He's a human chiro doctor, does humans, equines and dogs.

                                      It's been a while since I had to do chiro but the guidance price I can remember is ... $TOO DAMN MUCH. They tend to take some incredible hourly wages, which is understandable with their education. Still, I'm happy I haven't needed it for a while.

                                        $100 for vet/Chiro. No call fee, he comes once per month and does however many horses are on list.

                                          I agree in many ways, BUT - thankfully unlike with quack doctors or untrained barefoot trimmers, fake chiropractors can rarely do very much damage. If my friend had some massage courses and offered to try it out on my horse I'd totally accept; I sure as hell wouldn't pay her anything for it but I wouldn't be worried that she'd do damage. Of course I realise there's a difference between massage and chiro, but ... still?:-)
