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.

  • Hunter jumper barns near Camp Lejeune, NC?

    Hi everyone,

    My fiancé just got home from Afganistan a couple days ago We have been looking at houses and such, and I figured while I was up here for the week I would look into barns. I've checked the trainer listing on the NCHJA website, but to be honest I'm not too familiar with the area and I would prefer to get CotH's opinions. My mare is about to be leased down in Florida, so I'm really looking for somewhere to take lessons a couple times a week and possibly lease down the road. I'd preferably like a barn that does a lot of showing, and within an hour or so of Jacksonville. Also, does anyone know any good tack shops? I've heard there are a few in Wilmington but not sure if there are any closer.

    Thanks in advance!

    Moore Stables. They are awesome! I actually learned from them when I was really young. They are a wonderful group and they do a very nice job teaching students. (Also, their horsemanship skills are second to none).


    P.S.- They do lots of showing at many different levels.

      Call Annie Moore- at Moore Stables 910.324.2555

      I rode with Annie for 10 years and learned a lot. The barn does do a lot of shows from local level thru Washington International. It's worth checking out.
      Good Luck

        I'm moving there also end of June! I'll be boarding at the ONLY eventing barn though I've heard the on base stabling is really nice!

          Thanks guys!

          Pointtaker, where is the eventing barn? It seems no one around here rides. I have yet to check out the stable on base, but I'm pretty sure I know where it's at. We found a nice country home but not zoned for horses. It's just frustrating coming from Florida horse country!

            The stables on base are very nice. I rode there for 8 years. But this was from 1986-1993. They had lessons, trail rides, pony rides, full care. It was awesome! I miss that place so much. During the first few years (in NC) I was taking lessons at Moore Stables and loved it there too. Sam and Annie are wonderful people and they really know what they're doing. Best of luck whatever you decide. And I have to add: You're sooo lucky! I wish I could be back in NC.

              It's about twenty minutes outside of Jacksonville, the name of it is Fast First Farm. I've researched a lot on barns in that area and there are a couple other Hunter barns. Most of the barns do western though :/

              I'm trying to find a place within a hour of Lejeune to rent with land and a barn but according to my real estate agent thats impossible. Who would have thought?!

                There is also Equine Country which has a very nice tack shop. Cannot say much about their boarding or program there, other than we go to their schooling shows which are pretty nice. Can't say they are a "hunter" barn exclusively but I think a lot of hunter type people baord there and they used to have a trainer, not sure if they still do or not, I know the old one is not there anymore tho.

                  You'll have a hard time finding a hunter/jumper barn around there. You would have to travel towards Charlotte or Raleigh.

                  I did talk to Anne Moore I believe when my husband came home from his deployment. I had a lesson scheduled since I had a few hours to kill but my flight was late so I didn't get to take it. Also I thought they did eventing and were not a Hunter/jumper barn.

                  The rest of the barns around there were Western. I also failed to check out the base barn as I was not bringing my horse down there.

                  If you have never been there, the on base beach rocks for seashells but the ocean floor seemed like it was clay based instead of sand so I thought that was very bizarre. The beach itself was very nice, got to watch little crabs pop up scuttle to something and then quickly dove into their holes. OH and they had ducklings in February!!! ( all of this is a Novelty to me coming from Michigan! I was so excited t see Ducklings in Feb!)
