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!

      Greg Wilder is good, he doesn't call himself a chiropractor though. I think he charges $100.

      Blades Mcknight is excellent, but will charge an arm and a leg. She quoted me $200 for the first visit, and it ended up nearly $400. If you stay on top of her and make sure she's not doing a lot of extra stuff (she'll just pull out the acupuncture kit without even asking), she's worth it.

      Some people recommend Susan Chandler, but I thought she was pretty useless. She spent 5 minutes on each horse, and there was hardly a difference. She didn't even spend that much time looking at the individual horses, just put them in the cross ties and poked them a little. Blades and Greg are much better, IMO.

          Coppers Mom--I know these people and your comments on this public forum are not only factually incorrect but they are well beyond the boundries of ethical behavior! You cavalierly impugne the reputations of mutiple professionals (not to mention stallions whose owners depend on those reputations to get future breedings!) without so much as a careless backward glance at the carnage you leave in your wake. It is irresponsible of you at best and potentially libelous at worst.

          Perhaps you don't realize how you come across but please consider taking a deep breath and re-reading and perhaps re-WRITING your posts before hitting "reply" before you cause irreparable damage to someone's reputation and professional life. Your profile says you are in NC and work at a breeding farm. Be careful Sarah, you are not anonymous here or in the community where you live and work; words have a way of coming back and biting us when we least expect them or wish them to.

          You clearly have strong opinions and there's nothing wrong with that on the surface. However, you have an obligation to be truthful and polite in a public forum, and should you have something negative to say about a horse, a rider, a trainer or another professional, remember the law of unintended consequences, and the bitter taste of regret words spoken in haste can bring.

          I wish you well and hope you will afford others the same courtesy.

              Right, because I'm completely making things up

              Here's a newsflash: things have to be untrue to be considered libel/slander. The things I said are factually correct, so get over it. She asked for opinions, and there is nothing unethical about saying someone is good but expensive, or I didn't think they did anything at all.

              What I find unethical is promoting a stallion or service when it clearly doesn't live up to it's claims. I am really sick of the oohing and aahhing that goes on about a mediocre stud and his offspring just because you know the owner or horse. There are lots of nice stallions, but not all of them pass it on. There's nothing wrong with that, but there is something wrong with knowing his get aren't all that great, and pretending they are anyways. Same with services. I know how hard it is to swallow paying X amount of money, and realize that nothing's actually improved. I know how easy it is to try and convince yourself that something really did. But I'm not going to endorse someone if I feel like they've done nothing at all just because I spent a lot of money and wish that I had noticed a difference.

              I'm sorry if you're offended by my stating my experiences, or being open about what a stallion really throws. Because I don't own any of the stallions or their foals, I find that I don't form the barn-blind type of opinion that owners often do. Sorry the truth bothers you.

              Edited to add: Just checked out my profile to make sure I really hadn't put name, workplace, etc in it. I didn't. Why didn't you just say you'd figured out where I worked from what I posted (It's pretty well known that I work at a breeding farm), and my name from a PM? That's just a bit hypocritical, telling me I'm lying about things I've paid for, and then you going and pretending I don't know what I put in my own profile. It's odd that you'd go on about my lack of anonymity, when you've got your age, location, and tons of family information in your profile, IMO.

                Ditto! Have used her for a few years, in fact seeing her today for a few horses in my barn. Very reasonably priced and her rates haven't changed in years. She is more than happy to explain what she's doing or answer any questions, the changes she's noticed, and recommends exercises to make improvements.

                  Love her.. She adjusts the entire horse, not just the back and neck and front legs. She also can do accpuncture if you need for that done as well, but always asks before she does it. She spends a lot of time understanding what you plan to do with the horse before she starts.

                      Dr. Means at 3-H vet does chiro work, but she has injured her arm. I don't know how long she will be out. Also, I don't know how much Blades McKnight charges, but I used her about 4 years ago as a vet, she was really good with the horses and took a genuine interest in their well being.

                      I hear Animal Krackers is good, but I believe they are based out of Charlotte area and travel...
