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!

    $35 for a DVM chiropractor in NW Indiana/SW Michigan. Add a $30 farm call (she's 30 miles away from my horses), and a $35 initial consult fee for the first visit. All she does is canine and equine chiropractic, and equine dentistry.

    She is great and yes, I'm very lucky

    The $100-200 fees that some folks charge is robbery for a 20-30 minute service.

            In SC... $90-120, depending on if you go to her or she comes to you (and how far she has to travel). She also gives you a small break if you pay cash. She's awesome.. Vet and chiropractor, also does acupuncture.

                You think $200-600 an hour is appropriate compensation for an someone with an ambulatory practice and no employees?
                I disagree.

                  My sports medicine vet drives in to do all of my dental, chiropractic, and acupuncture work. He is wonderful and due to his experience with track horses, he is very calm and soothing for our hot mares. It usually comes out to around $90 with the travel fee IIRC. He takes copious notes about what he did, the results, and the timeline for the next appointment.

                    OP not sure where in Central PA you are but Patsy Pagano charges $100. She massages them and gets them nice and loose first then adjusts them. She's really helped Boy a lot.

                      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.

                      Thank you for your opinion. I have to say that I felt the same way before working with this person - thought they were a quack and a waste of time and money. Gave it a shot, then listened to my horse. While I don't buy in to all the woowoo stuff, I do think that it makes a difference in the way my horse moves, his overall comfort, and his soundness.

                      And yes, she is an LLC, does have insurance, and is certified in bodywork. Just not a DVM. The incredibly well respected DVM who lives next door to her also uses her for bodywork.

                      I did take my horse to the local veterinary hospital and had him worked on by the DVM that was certified in chiro. While it worked, I saw less change in him and his comfort, and it was by far more expensive.

                      So while I understand what you are saying, I think that there are different paths that work for different horses. I think I found one that works for mine.

                          IMO, if the practitioner doesn't have a CURRENT certification from the AVCA it sin't worth the risk.

                          The AVCA certifies Vets and human (Doctors of Chiropractic) in animal chiropractic and requires updates to the certification every 3 years.

                              hmm well I pay about $260 and my vet/chiro/accupuncturist is there for easily 2 hours working on her sometimes. So it seems like everyone does something different... doesn't mean it's robbery. I would sure agree if I paid that for a 20 min service.

                                Eastern KS. $85 if at the clinic but my guy is low. All the other chiro vets want him to raise his rate to the $150 per visit they charge but he won't do that because he wants to see his clients and not have $$ be an issue.

                                  Mine is $80, plus a $25 call fee, which is waived if you have 3 or more horses. We are very close to their home location, I think the call fee changes if there is major milage happening.

                                  She's a certified for humans and equines, and I find her much more thorough and the horses have consistently responded better than when the vet who is certified was doing them.
