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!

  • Looking for indoor to trailer to in Middleburg

    Greetings! I am looking for an indoor arena in the Middleburg or Marshall (we live on Atoka road) to trailer to and use on occasion (when the footing outside is too wet!). We are in process of building our own indoor, but it will be a while.

    Any one have a farm or know of one that allows riders to trailer in and use their indoor. It's fine if it has to be certian times of day. Please let me know! And also what the fee is.

    Thanks very much!!

      You should be able to haul to use theirs. Obviously, call ahead and make an appointment, but it's an excellent facility and not far from you.

          I trailer to Foxcroft School's huge, perfect footing (from WEF) indoor in the evenings or weekends (it's only 5 min away for me). It is usually open 6-9 PM on weeknights, and 12-6 on weekends. Just call the stable tape to make sure that there is not an event going on there on the weekend. It is $15/horse.

              The stable number is 540-687-4582.

              You call in advance, and listen to the full message on the machine, and as long as they don't say the arena is closed for "X" on a certain date, then you just leave a message saying, "Hi, this is "Y," and I'll be bringing # of horses at "Z" time on <date>." You don't get an appointment, it is just to alert the school security guards that someone will be there using the ring. Some nights there will be no one else there, othertimes there will be 9 people using the ring with 2 trainers giving lessons. It depends on what the weather is like. Trying to jump can sometimes be interesting.

              The message will give you the available dates/times to use the ring. They usually only allow those times, except on school holidays when the ring will be open 12-9 during the weekdays, because the equestrian program is really big there and they are running lessons in the ring(s).

              Some key thing to remember: ALWAYS pick up your horse's poop in the indoor. The footing that WEF donated to the school is awesome (not to mention very white!), and they are determined to keep it that way. Also, if you are the first one there, you will have to turn on the lights in the ring, and if you are the last one there, remember to turn them off. Finally, always take your rig in and out of the stable entrance, which is down the road from the main school entrance. There is a push pad there to call the security guard to open the gates.

                Thank you so much for the info. Maybe we will see you there!
                So I'm guessing by weather, you mean come rain and bad weather the ring is packed!

                  Another vote for Foxcroft. There is nowhere in the area where you can use such a nice facility for so little. It's been $15 to use that ring for as long as I can remember.

                  Also, can't beat the heated bathrooms AND they have drink and snack machines!

                  Just sign your release, pop it and your check in the box and you're good to go.

                    You might try Denise Finch at Forecast Farm on Atoka Road.

                          Denise's indoor can be a little tough. It has thick rubber footing bits and after a few horses have gone thru, there is a footing-free trail along the rail. It is fairly small/tight and I always worried about slipping in there, especially after it had been watered. There is only room for a few jumps in the center of the ring, no lines. But, in terms of proximity to the OP, it might be a great deal. I love Denise but I don't love the indoor.

                            SSR is mostly correct in her post, but I must point out her error in the footing. The footing came from WIHS not WEF

                            Also, we ask that you not move the fences, or if you do, that you please return them to the original course.
