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!

  • Where is Sissy relocating ?

    I know they are moving, but have not heard where Sissy Wickes and Kim Zindell=Busby will be located in Penna.

    Sissy will be very close to Devon.

      I believe the same general area, though I don't remember the name of the town. Outskirts of Philadelphia.

        I live very near their old place and had them help me with my young horse. I talked to Sissy when she was down here in Fla. and she did not know where they were going yet. I don't go to the show much, and by the time I went back she was not there. Where near Devon will she be?? I am familiar with the area.

          I believe Sissy is going to where Dominique D. is (which is where Kristi Price had been-- she called it Meridian though I think that's the name of Kristi's business and not the actual name of the farm-- Whitehorse Rd. off of Route 252?!). Dominique is apparently going to a place on Yellow Springs Road. Not sure which place but there's a NICE smaller barn there, so maybe that's where she's going.

          I wonder what Sissy's clients will think of the amenities where she's going (I actually haven't seen it in a long time and there's a new indoor. So perhaps it's nicer than I recall)? What a bummer about the entire situation and all the barn switching. Seems like there's enough business in the area, there ought to be enough nice places without playing musical barns. Best of luck to all.

                  It's right around the corner from Delores, and Susie has been so many places, I don't know if this was one of her stops... probably, it's in the right area...

                    Yes, Sissy is moving to Dominique's place, formerly Kristi's. Yes, the facility is remarkable- very useful, beautiful, great location. Down the street from Crashley Meadows Dominique is moving to a small facility coming off the ground, non-existent to date in Phoenixville.

                    <Sigh> Chester County...

                      Is Domenique going to Lane Thompson's place or somewhere else entirely?


                      • #12
                        A different place entirely.

                        And yes, Stoney Knoll was formerly Susie's place.


                        • #13
                          hello, Dominique is moving to a small, private farm off whitehorse road in phoenixville. Sissy is moving to Stony Knoll on whitehorse road in berwyn (that only makes it more confusing!) Lane Thompson (me) is off of swedesford road in malvern.


                          • #14
                            Where off Whitehorse is Dominique moving? That is my old stomping grounds and I was just out there over the weekend and couldn't figure out where her new 40 acre (rumor had it) farm is going to be. I swear at one point in my childhood we had our horses at just about every place within a stone's throw of Whitehorse Road so inquiring minds want to know!


                            • #15

                              I am relocating to a small farm off of Whitehorse Road in Malvern/Phoenixville, Charleston Township. It is an old farm, that is being beautifully renovated as Ramble on Farm. We are still in the process of making improvements, and the end result is going to be fantastic. It was a bittersweet decision- Stoney Knoll is a fabulous place, owned by lovely people, and my stay there was nothing but great. I am very excited for my new farm, as it is more appropriate for my business and will still allow me to continue to develop my program. I am happy to have been able to connect with Sissy, and I wish her the very best of luck at Stoney Knoll, I know it will be a great place for her.

                              I am happy to answer any other questions, and feel free to contact me directly at rambleonfarm@hotmail.com.
