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!

      Oops! Didn't read this post before I replied to the other! That would be the same Lori that I was asking about. I saw them when I was with Ashmont back in the 80's and again two years ago when I was "horse shopping" - but they were not at the original farm that they were at twenty years ago. I belive now they rent a barn on the Melon property, but I could be mistaken.

              He has to register as a sex offender, how does that affect his judging once he has to do that? Or for that matter, being at a barn where kids are?

                  Does anyone know what barn he is at right now? I am a young lady and in the area I would not like to end up at his barn, nor would I like it if my friends were there.

                          Twelfth of Never Farm exists at the barn they rent on Blue Ridge Farm, which is next door to the former Mellon property. Blue Ridge is owned by the Graysons.

                            Parents...would you still send your child to a show where he is judging? Or, for that matter would you ride there? If you wouldn't, I think it would make sense to contact the show and let them know why. Often they hire their judges off of lists a year in advance and may be oblivious to the scandal.

                                Jonathon Soresi. Now there's a name from my past. He had a small barn in Burbank across from Paddock Riding Club years ago. I hauled a couple of our young WBs there to take some lessons from him because some of my friends rode there and recommended him. Great lessons, by the way. But other than that all I remember was that he left to pursue a career in acting (a small recurring role in a soap opera).

                                I keep thinking that nothing surprises me anymore. And then something like this crops up and I'm surprised.

                                Shouldn't the requirements of his probation prevent him from working around or with minors? That'd pretty much end his horse show judging stints. And since this is public record, what parent would willingly drop their kid off at the barn for lessons?

                                  I don't think he has been sentenced to probation yet...which is the issue. At this point it seems entirely up to the shows whether or not they want him there.

                                    I also knew Jonathan years ago at the Paddock (and really got a kick out of him back then), but now I am a mother and could never sit back and watch him watching my child at a show. I think it's gross that anyone would have him in the proximity of children, much less judging them.

                                      He was my first trainer. He never did anything inappropriate to me or in my presence. But, that was a long time ago. I have no idea if he is the same person anymore. I did like him very much back then.

                                        Yes, her maiden name is Soresi. Not sure if it is spelled the same.

                                          Chronicle of the Horse: Rule #2: The primary purpose of this board is to discuss issues, not individuals.
                                          He who has no sin, may cast the first stone. Have you no compassion? Have you no shame? Have you nothing in your closet? In most of Europe and South America this is referred to as "hanging out your dirty laundry". Is your laundry clean?
                                          It seems to me that none of you are discussing the issues of good horsemanship; rather, you have created a soap opera and brought in two other people into this soap opera that you alone have created...that being Jonathan's sister and brother. I see the repeated use of the word "gross" with regards to this issue. I think your fascination with this story is gross. What exactly is the inference if one person is related to another? Have your siblings done nothing wrong? Do you believe that the sins of the father are the sins of the son? And, finally, does something on your computer equate to acting upon it? If that were true, I guess a heck of a lot of marriages would have ended by now...please reflect.
