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!

                No - they are probably an hour and a half away.

                Teddi Ismond is in that area as well (I think)

                      Teddi Ismond is located just behind the showgrounds at Hits Culpeper. She does an outstanding job targeting the mental aspect of riding. She has a wide range of clients.
                      There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the
                      inside of a man.

                        Is Teddi still there? I thought she was back in Keswick (Florida for the winter). Of course, the Charlottesville area is not that far from Culpeper and plenty of good professionals there (Teddi, Claiborne Bishop, Chanda Boylen, all of whom are good with adults).

                          I highly recommend Brooke too. She does a great job with both young and more experienced horses. She has one of mine in training now and I've had several other horses (and a couple of ponies) in training with her over the last 4-5 years. She has done a terrific job with each one. In addition to training, she's catch ridden for me, prepped ponies at shows for my daughters, prepped horses of mine at shows for other riders, shown one of my young horses, and puts tune-up/training rides on horses my daughters are regularly riding.

                          If I had unlimited funds, Brooke would be competing a string of my horses and bringing them up the ranks. Her current location behind HITS Culpeper is ideal for young horses.

                            I'll second Brooke as well. I've known her for a good while now and she's got a very patient, down-to-earth approach that's great for a timid rider.

                              Paul Mathews is near Culpeper as well. He is excellent at preparing horses for junior and amateur riders.
                              Ask around.

                                I have been in the area for a very long time. My statement wasn't rude as much as it was true. In the past, Jeff has had some personal issues that I hesitate to disclose on a public forum, but considering how far in the past someone may or may not be bothered by them.

                                  If you are going to go as far as keswick, I suggest Jocelyn Martin as well. Excellent with the youngsters.

                                      Oh The good old "I know something you don't know" series of cryptic statements.

                                      If you feel its imperative but doesn't belong on the board, then PM the person. If not, then zip it. Being that even you feel that it's "far in the past", it probably falls into the latter. Veiled comments like that add nothing.

                                      And for the record, I don't know Jeff personally and haven't done any sort of business with him.

                                        Before everyone jumps on 992 for posting, giving a heads up about potential issues is not always a bad thing for the horse community: ie JB thread. If 992 had posted something more concrete, it could have been "get ready for a lawsuit": see EM thread. A pm is a good place to start but considering it was not a really malicious or nasty statement, lets try not to jump on people who may be trying to give a heads up.

                                        But that's just my opinion. I have no dog in this fight about that trainer one way or the other.

                                        ETA: COTHer who indignantly pmd about my post, never did I compare anyone to EM or JB. Going back in time, people had posted vague concerns regarding certain people. My post was neither for or against any trainer, just voicing an opinion. The bock option is available if you do not like my posts.
