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!

  • H/J Barns in North Carolina?

    Hi there

    One of my favorite clients may be moving to North Carolina. I will be incredibly sad to see them go, if indeed they do go, but I did promise to help them "vet" any potential facilities. They have an 8 year old daughter who is an amazing little rider, and they want to show. They have a horse in training with me that is a sale project and will likely stay here; they will need either a lease or purchase for the kid.

    Any suggestions? Thanks!

      We are in eastern NC, 45 minutes east of Raleigh, we have a nice show team of children from ages 7 to 16 and show at bigger local circuits (EHA etc) and NCHJA "C" Rated shows, as well as the 4-H district and state shows. We offer leases and can assist with finding the perfect childs horse/pony to purchase. All of our lessons are pricate, and designed for each child www.shawneeacres.net

        It would be nice to know what part of NC. My daughter's trainer will be moving to Southern Pines at the end of the summer and will be relocating her business to her farm there. She has been in the business for 30 years and has bred and trained ponies and horses to multiple championships at all the big shows as well as several HOTY.

        She can also definitely help find a purchase or lease for the child.

        PM me if you'd like more info.

          I'm not quite sure what part. They did tell me that they are looking at a place called Quail Roost, which my computer says is in North Durham county....does that help?

              Actually North Durham is a bit of a hike from Raleigh, I used to live in Bahama which is right around the corner from Quail Roost. Not sure how much showing the school barn at QUail Roost does now. But it is a nice place that has been there FOREVER! They usually have one "C" rated show there a year (NCHJA rated that is). I haven't shown there in years, but used to know Irmgard Hill (the owner) quite well. I think here daughter Carol has taken over management of the facility, but not 100% sure about that now.


              • #8
                Yes Carol still runs the facility and there are 3 different business that operate out of there if I'm not mistaken. There is the lesson barn Quail Roost, then the show barn Equiventure, and there is an eventer I do believe based out of there too. It has also been many years since I've been there, but I know some folks that frequent there and it is a bit of hike from Raleigh. I don't know who any of the trainers are there right now though.

                  Also what level of showing? That area has a pretty wide range of shows (and plenty for every level). If you are talking about A shows then the Durham area is lacking more in that type of barn. Although there is Fox View Farm right next to Quail Roost has Beverly Burnett come and teach out of there and they go to the bigger shows. You will find many more A show barns in the Raleigh area and then some in the Greensboro/Winston-Salem area. Good luck! I moved away from the area (but still keep in touch with many people) and I miss it a lot!

                    Holly Hudspeth is the 4* event rider at Equiventure but I think she's pregnant right now so not sure how much training she is doing.
