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!

  • Marietta,GA farms?

    Posting for a friend who is moving to the Marietta area. Would like to have lessons, and do a few shows, but likely not the big show barns. Less stress, more fun. Any suggestions?

          Alex liss at hunter valley farm is a small facility that is low to no pressure, goes to some shows in our area and she is so fun and knows what she's doing.
          Sounds like she is worth at last a call to or check out her website at www.huntervalleyfarms.com she is in Milton not Marietta, but it's a short easy drive from her place to marietta. Good luck!

                Seven C’s is exceptional.
                What part of Marietta? There are nice barns all around, but for driving time it would be better to drive "out" not "across".
                Seven C's is in west Cobb. Alpharetta and Milton are accessable from North East Cobb, but no so much from the West area.

                  That's good to know - housing is still up in the air, so that isn't much help at this point.

                    I would say Three Bears is about 30-40 minutes from Marietta, depending on where exactly in Cobb/Marietta you are.

                    7Cs is probably about 20-30 minutes, again depending on where exactly you are.

                      Patchwork Farm is located in Canton, GA which is about 30mins from Marietta per google maps. Really nice facility, I've been there once. Not sure what her price range is for boarding. Here's the site http://www.patchworkfarmga.com/facility_tour.html

                        Traffic here is tricky. When she gets a housing location, let us know and we can narrow down drive times. There are lots of barns to choose from!

                          Updated with housing info

                          Looks like she will be living off the Cobb Pkwy in Smyrna area.

                          Any recommendations near there?

                            Love my barn!

                            I live a few miles from where your friend is moving and keep my mare at www.falconridgestables.com in Woodstock. It's about 30 minutes up 75/575 and well worth the drive for the facility, turnout & people.

                            It's a great atmosphere, with really solid training. They've helped me bring my mare along from green to adult amateur jumpers and my husband from brand new rider to local Long Stirrup. They host 4 one day local shows on property and do a good mix of locals & A's during the year but no pressure to show.

                            Can't say enough good things about Sharon & Doug, Kelci and the rest of the FRS team!

                              Alex and I grew up together and she's great. She really puts the horse first.

                                I used to live in east Cobb, closer to Roswell, and kept my horses at Three Bears for years.

                                It took about the same time -- sometimes less -- to drive there during rush hour than to drive to Milton or Alpharetta.

                                Three Bears is stunning and the care is excellent.

                                  I'm not very familiar with the area but I second, no third the recommendation for Alex liss! My priorities for a barn are similar to the op and if I lived nearby, she's the trainer I'd look into first.

                                    She would be somewhere around 15 minutes from Seven C's. I would think it is worth a look if she is looking for a layed back barn.
                                    I believe they have a few different trainers come in. I don't think it is a "must show" structured program.
                                    To go north would be interstates, to go west would be side roads, not all 2 lanes but no interstates.
                                    There are a few more 15 minutes farther west.
                                    If she wants to go west instead of northeast, pm me for more names.
                                    It could be from 45mins to an hour to the Alpharetta/Milton area, more depending on traffic and time of day. But ther are many great farms to choose from.

                                      Jennifer Buck

                                      Jennifer Buck Stables is a Beautiful location in the Marietta section of Cobb County. Jennifer's background is quite extensive and she keeps the horses and facility clean and beautiful. Always grass in the fields. Very nice ring footing, CLEAN barn. The horses are always put first. The pastures and fencing are safe and things are always kept in good working order. Beautiful hay (and they get plenty of it), Stalls that are matted and loaded with shavings. Water buckets and tubs are always clean and full. Tidy tack room and office with plenty of amenities.

                                      Jennifer Grew up on a farm and has many years of facilities management and training/riding under her belt. Very low profile barn (we like it that way). We are a close knit little group who like to ride and hang out together. No pressure to show however if you want to show you have that option. This is a rare find and if you are looking for quality you should check it out. Call Jennifer or check out her website for more info JenniferLBuckStables.com

                                      If you are looking for quality without pretention check here! Close to Vinings.
