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!

  • Katie Monahan-Prudent Clinic

    For those interested, there will be a Katie Monahan-Prudent clinic in Zionsville, IN Oct 17th & 18th. Was a huge success last year. For more information please send email.

    I wish I lived close enough to audit, I would love to watch this. I am a great admirer of Katie, and remember watching her when she was competing in the junior divisions, which tells you how old I am.

      Are there any reports about the clinic last year? Katie is a perfect teacher and has a high reputation as horsewomen and showjumper. You can´t have a better instructor.

        She is wonderful on a hunter too!!
        My hero!!

          What are the reasons that testimonials concerning clinics with Katie Monahan Prudent are hard to find? I supposed that there would be a steady flow of reports in order to value highly both her incredible experience and her extraordinary riding skills.


          • #6
            She has not done many clinics here because up to the past year, she has spent most of her time in France. But there isn't anyone better, except GM himself.

              Exactly, I worked for her for several years and she is fantastic. Many 'younger' people haven't heard of her because she's really a trainer for professionals. Many of the best riders in the world have respect for her teaching style. Let's not forget who helped Beezie get a leg up .

                My Daughter did the clinic here last year and loved Katie...she made things very difficult over very small jumps and I have to admit a very few were able to do what she wanted....we are doing it again this year but this time on our 4 year old recently imported green bean hunter, so I imagine it will be quite challenging for daughter and horse...We are looking forward to it,Katie is a great mentor and instructor and really drills the notion of perfect practice!!!


                • #9
                  I audited her clinic in St. Louis last weekend. KMP was a fantastic instructor, tough but fair.


                  • #10
                    More info on the Indiana clinic is available through email or pm.

                      I was looking around for a clinic this fall and found this one. Although I would like to ride with her, I think the price is way to high. $550 for two days and another $100.00 for a stall? Many of the George Morris Clinics (both those that are with him or clinicians) on his schedule are priced less. With 4-6 horses per group, what a windfall for the barn owner/trainer.


                      • #12
                        IMO... I rather ride with Katie then GM. Btw...GM clinic was around $650.


                        • #13
                          I think, that Katie is instructing very vividly. Her gestures are descriptive. I never saw more enthusiastic than Katie. I regret that the reports about her clinics have the appearance of secrets. Or, where you can find internet reports?


                          • #14
                            I was fortunate to compete against her this year - and felt fortunate just to watch her ride. It was super educational.
                            They're small hearts.

                              Yes, George's clinics are $650.00 plus at least $75.00 per day to audit. At Katie's clinic you get 2 bags of shavings included in your stall and the audit fee is only $40.00 per day. Well worth it for the amount of knowledge you will gain. IMO

                                I am not knocking Katie, I am knocking the barn owner/trainer who is putting this together. With 6 in a group at $550.00 and four groups, plus the $100.00 a stall for a few stalls they are making a windfall. Of course, this is just my opinion but the clinic is being offered in the Midwest in a smaller horse community and I still think it is priced to high.


                                • #17
                                  Katie is a superb trainer. This week at Harrisburg, she trained the USEF National Junior Jumper Champion, my daughter Reed. I may be wrong, but I think she is the youngest to win this gold medal, riding as 14 yrs old. She also trained Reed to Junior Jumper Champion at Devon this year, the youngest rider to win in Devon's history.

                                  Make any sacrifice necessary to attend her clinic. You will be amazed at how much you learn about riding and about your horse.

                                    Katie Prudent

                                    I have a friend who is a friend of Katie P. and she said that she could get my daughter a lesson w/ katie....she's pretty expensive tho'....don't know if I should ...would one lesson be worth it?


                                    • #19
                                      yes, worth it, imo.

                                      The lesson will be what she makes of it.. Get there early, be prepared, work hard , listen and learn.

                                        When Katie taught in the uS she took average riders and made them great- if they had the desire to work. Do not go to her clinic thinking this is a fanny patting exercise. She is the best.
