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!

    I was at the 1st CDHJC banquet, rode with one of the "founding" fathers..yada-yada..BUT once I left there and started with a real trainer (I commuted to Rochester every weekend by Greyhound)..I started to learn how much I DID NOT know, and just how full of bull-crap many of the CD people were. Sorry if I sound harsh, but I have stories that'll curl your toes!! Let me just say I went to the web-site & saw they have an Eq medal named for CC.. can we say oxymoron!!!!! that man & equitation have nothing to do with each other! ( should have named the dirty-joke award after him) jmho

      "Fleetwood Lassie" is the origin of the name, in a roundabout way. While I was expecting we moved to a house right near DM. I couldn't ride but liked to stop by the barn. My (non horsey) husband fell in love with Lassie's gentle demeanor. Our last name is WOOD so he calls her "Fleet" rather than Lassie. He assumed that that was her first name. He even calls is new car "Fleet" after her. I only rode her once and have to say that I enjoy her more from he ground! The horse I ride is boarded there and used for some lessons. I haven't taken the plunge yet as hubby and I may have another little one first.
      Did you ride there? How long ago?

        Elizabeth, the horses I rode/leased were Call Millennium, Arrogance and Satisfaction Guaranteed (20 years ago) I also showed a horse named Uptown for a season or two a LONG time ago, I dont even know who owned him, he was boarded at an acquaintance's barn and no one came to ride him.

                Hi Fleetie. I used to ride Fleetwood Lassie, which is why I asked. (I rode with Peter back in about 1985-ish.) Why didn't you like riding her? (I have my own view, which I'll share, once I get yours. . . .!!)

                Which is the horse you ride there?

                    Yes, Alf, Fleetwood Lassie is/was a little chestnut (15.3).

                    Alf, with whom did you ride and when?

                      Leanne moved to Palm Beach and took her Dad with her [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img] (I miss them) She is an exquisite rider, another unappriciated jewel in the area forced to move to where their talents could be more of service to them...(like Scott Hofsteder, Timmy Gougan, John Blair....) They too realized what a dead end it is here...It is difficult swimming upstream against a stagnant mentality. SK truely hasn't changed a bit, if anything the group is more devious and underhanded than ever...PA is tamed down some but still going strong, SRF had a bumpy patch but I guess they are still up and running affliated with Sand Castle Farm, (a customer)there have been so many changes in the area since the early - mid seventies..I forgot how much has changed.

                        I was looking through some of the old photos in the DM viewing lounge the other night. There used to be some really nice horses in that barn. Anyone recall Grey Image, Aruba, Tinker Toy, Star O'Man, Atlantis?
                        Alf and Elizabeth, Fleetwood Lassie is a cute little chestnut mare. She was quite the little packer in her day. She's a bit sour/sore (funny how those words are so alike) now and needs a "confident" ride. Back in my junior years I was always the one who got stuck riding that type. Now I'm a big ol' chicken. "Fleeters" will still show her old self on the outside course or with the ideal ride.
                        It is too bad that there isn't more depth of talent here anymore. There are some nice showgrounds and so many good shows with close reach. My last trainer was so fed up with the politics and lack of horsemanship that she gave up with several nice greenies in her barn. Jumphigh can attest to the quality of this woman's stock but she just dropped out. She had the talent and horses but family conditions kept her here so now she has a 12 year old green mare in her barn!

                          I used to live and ride in the CD. It's been almost 11 years since I left. I have to agree with alot that has been said. The trainer that I was with up there was really bad but I just did not know any better. When I moved, I found out how bad it had really been.

                          I had heard that DM was going to be replaced with houses/townhouses. Did that happen? Did they move? Or is still on off of Rt. 20?

                            Slightly Tarnished was retired to a field and las t I knew he was still owned by Kristin Z. As far as the Capital Dipsticks go and this is for Jill since she seems to be the only one defending them Do you self a favor and take some lessons from one of the well known trainers and you will be enlightened as to what everyone is talking about as far as the professional (I use this word very loosely when it refers to CD)expertise in the area.

                              is still on Western Ave (Rt 20) at the old Triple A barn. The old barn by the mall was demolished when the mall became The Behemoth. There is a very pricey development beind it near the golf course, but there is still decent trail riding land. I live right near there (not in the pricey development [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img] ) and it has gotten very commercial around here.
                              Hey anyone remember the place that used to be called Shamrock Stable? Now that area has really gotten developed.

                                WOW, this certainly brings back memories, both good and bad. I was also at the first annual awards, was it 1975? I was working hunter champion that year, it think it was 1975, I rode with DM in the 70's and remember those "founding fathers". although I don't ride anymore, I am still in the area and run into old friends who keep me abreast of what is happening. Its sad that the CDHJC has become what it seems to have become. Unfortunately the Albany area seems to be a very small pond and a lot of people feel that they are the big fish. The old DM was torn down probably 15 years ago for a huge mall, the current DM is the old Mill Pond Stables.

                                  DM is at the old Mill Pond, not Triple A. PA is still "running" Winter Glen at the old Triple A. Don't get me started on her [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_mad.gif[/img]
                                  What was your horse's name Laurie? There are still some good people and good riders. Sadly the pros who have come up through this area have left.

                                      I don't think Balmoral, a/k/a Charlie won end of the year awards, my horse was Fox Chapel. I remember DK was reserve and we fought it out at every show. I think Balmoral was saved for the "big" shows and didn't show as much on the local circuit.

                                          Tom is alive and well and living in downtown Albany, he & I were at St. Clements last year on Saturday and usually make that our annual horse show reunion day. One horse show appearance a year seems to be enough for us.
