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!

  • Boarding near Morristown NJ? Can anyone help?

    I am desperatly looking for a place in Morris county New Jersey, in or near the Morristown area to board one or possibly two horses. Any advice or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    Hi...

    Ravenswood Farm (Sandy Lobel) isn't far from there...in Harding Township.
    I don't have a contact number... but I'm sure someone on here probably has it.

    Also, Smoke Rise in Kinnelon isn't too far... about a 20-25 minute drive up 287 to Route 23.

    Hope that helps!

      You are right next to 287 which in 20-30 minutes can get you to the heart of horse country. There are lots of barns in Bedminster, Whitehouse Station, Lebanon, Long Valley, etc. Here's a list:

      Holland Brook Stable (where I currently am, PM for more info)
      Palermo Show Stable
      The Ridge Farm
      Resolution Farm
      Lightfields
      Liberty Farm (right around the corner from us)
      Hunter's Crossing
      Crewe Hill

                I live in Morristown (Harding actually, but my address is Morristown.) and go to school in Summit.

                Barns that I would suggest:
                Liberty Farm - In my opinion the best service in New Jersey. Barn is immaculate, horses are gleaming and always receive compliments on their appearance, trainers are top of the line (I mean, c'mon, Gary's kids have won Medal finals and theres !). The atmosphere is friendly with a healthy mix of juniors and amateurs and is literally drama free. Its about a 20-25 minute drive from Mo-Town. (287 south, 78west?, then about just a few miles off the exit). My top choice, and I have super high standards. Its very well known and has a super reputation.

                Resolution Farm - Gary was here prior to Liberty. Facility is incredible, tons of horses, Amanda is a great trainer and Annabel is so cool.

                Fox Chase Farm - This is where I boarded before I moved to Liberty. Gorgeous facility, lots of boarders have been there for years and are extremely satisfied. Its family run and a fun atmosphere. Sarah and Sebastian are super fun trainers.

                Palermo Show Stable - I adore Osvaldo and Gretchen. They really work hard to bring the best to their customers. Great training, they host really well run horse shows right on their property.

                Hunters Crossing with Robert Beck is near Resolution and is fantastic. Really nothing that I can say wrong there and Robert's track record speak for itself.

                Message me if you have any questions or want to hear a more personal opinion of some of these barns..

                            I lived in Morristown until I was 7... oh memories.

                            My house backed up to Seaton Hackney Stables... is it still there? That was the reason I started riding. I could see the horses from my backyard and started begging to ride when I first started walking and talking.

                                I grew up on Dogwood Road in Morris Plains. I was born there in '83, and moved to NY in the winter of '89 when I was 6. But most of my family was down there, and we used to go to the Jersey Shore every summer.


                                Jersey is still "home" to me.

                                  I recommend Jonesie at Logan's Brook. I rode with her in the 80s and she was fantastic. I don't know much about her current facility because I moved away 15 years ago, but I always thought she provided excellent care and truly loved the horses.

                                    Anybody know of other barns in Bedminster that are easy to get to right off 78?

                                      Fox Chase Farms has easy access off of Route 78 and is a beautiful farm - see above posts.

                                      Also right in that area is Hidden Brook Farm which is a nice facility. Right next door to Hidden Brook is another farm Rivers Edge Farm (I think is the name) that I really know nothing about except that it is there. All three of these are on the same road and have very easy access to Route 78.

                                        I believe the Kellogg farm, Ravenswood, is right across the street (78) from Palermo. They may have access to trails. Their barn is brand new and is absolutely gorgeous. They have a very nice built barn and their indoor is spacious and very well lighted. I would stop by or call, as I don't think they have a website.
