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!

  • Looking for jumper trainer Warwick or Yonkers NY

    I have reached yet another milestone in my life and it's time to move (again).

    I have job offers in Warwick, NY and Yonkers, NY.

    I'm looking for someone who is a capable jumper trainer. Currently, I ride in the Adults on my own horse, and my long-term goal is to move up. Board/training price is not an issue. I'd like to travel less than half an hour -- is this feasible from Yonkers?

    I've seen Eammon and Drumnacross mentioned on previous threads. Does anyone have his contact info?

    Are there any local tack shops?

    Thanks for any info you might have. Since I don't know the area too well (my brother lives in Manhattan, so I wanted to be somewhat close), any thoughts on these areas would be appreciated.
    Ride on!

    Here's a pretty good list of the local talent

      Eamonn is the man! I am sure you could find his number online. I have it somewhere....I will search for it.

        Depending on the part of Yonkers, you are probably 35 minutes from Peter Leone in Greenwich, CT or Arcadia in Yorktown Heights, NY. It's about 20 minutes to Stratford Stables in Purchase, NY- although I'm not sure how many jumper riders they have. There are a few others within ~30 minutes, but the ones I can think of do mostly the C circuit and some local As.

          I worked at a farm next to Eamonn Hughes, loved him! When I lived in Bronxville, NY, I used to ride at Arcadia farm, but they are geared more towards the hunters/eq/juniors. Peter Leon's place is very nice, a bit pricey though. Mcclain's place isn't too far a drive either if you're interested in training there.

          Also, there are quite a few places in NJ just over the bridge, if you're willing to commute. Nona Garson, Chris Kappler, and Mark Leon's place- I also looked there, it too was lovely, he is a very nice guy and the commute isn't that bad!

            I have a friend who rents the other isle from Eammon. Debbie Haimowitz, I trained with her and have some friends that have been with her a long time..She is really good with the horses and knows her stuff....She is here all year round Eammon goes to Fla in the winter so if you stay Debbie takes care of the horses anyway. She trained with GM for quite sometime and gives quality lessons and her care is awesome...They are in Chester/Goshen NY...
            Actually the closest Tack shop is Horse and Rider in Middletown, you also have Whinnies and Nickers and fr the local stuff Don Maney is right down the road...
            Warwick to Goshen is an easy ride..
            You also might consider that of you working in the Orange County area living here is pretty nice too, this way there is no bridge involved....

              Thanks to everyone for the replies!

              I look forward to exploring both of these geographic areas and the info is very helpful.
              Ride on!

                  I ride with Gilles Barrandon at Granny Fox Farm. He is one of the most intelligent horseman I have ever worked with. He has young horses in training and primarily teaches and competes in the jumpers. His wife Esther Noyen Barrandon is also very talented and they both have the resume to prove it. The most impressive part is watching the horses they train go...happy correct horses!

                    If you end up in Warwick try Linda Mancini. She is really good with the jumpers and is in Warwick. She also trains out of Old Field Farm in Goshen, NY. PM me for her number if interested. For tack stores there is Green Vally Tack in Pine Island, NY which is basically part of Warwick. Warwick is a great place to be IMO
                    Impossible is nothing.

                      The thread is more than three years old.

                      Presumably the OP found a place by now.

                        You could also check out Ramapo Equestrian Center. The wife does dressage the husband jumpers. I have seen some excellent riders come from there. They are in Suffern

                          I was also going to mention Linda Mancini. We liked her very much and she worked well for my daughter.

                          If you will be in the Warwick area (as opposed to Yonkers), you could also check out Katie Moriarity at On Course Riding Academy in Lafayette, NJ. It's about a half hour to 45 min. drive from the Warwick area. Warwick has some very pretty areas.

                            Agreed! Gilles is talented and a true professional.

                            I would also highly Recommend Linda Mancini and Debbie Haimowitz both available to train out of Goshen, New York at Old Field Farm http://oldfieldfarm.net
