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!

    RE: Ashley Cayce

    I have to say that I was very disappointed with her. She seems to be lacking the foundation skills that I would expect of someone at an A level. Just my personal opinion

      Hi guys, I'm new here, I had to sign up to respond to this topic. Sorry to bring up an old topic but I just had to ask, NCHunterJump, can you be more specific about your experience with Ashley? Did you take a lesson with her, and what disappointed you?

      I'm curious because I've been riding with Ashley for about 8 months now and I feel that my riding has improved greatly in that time period. She is certainly dedicated and professional. As far as I can tell, she's one of the best H/J instructors in the Fayetteville area. I'm just wondering if there's something I'm missing?

        I went to college with her. I always thought she was a good rider and a nice person.

          Ditto. Good rider, conscientious horse person. I have and would again trust my horse in her care. I boarded at the same self care facility as her in college and she was one of my go-to people if I had an issue.

            When training in NJ

            Ashley was a trainer in NJ who attended my horse shows with her students. She rode well and always did a very good job with her clients She was very professional and conscientious with all students. She had quite a few customers and everyone seemed to be quite happy with her. I was sorry to see her leave the area. I would expect her to do a good job where ever she has relocated.

              Okay, I'm glad it seems most people feel the same way I do

                I agree...I currently ride with Ashley and have for over a year now. I think I am lucky to have found her down here. My riding has improved so much in the past year along with my confidence. She is definately one of the best trainers in the area if not the best!


                • Original Poster

                  Wow! I just found this (I had forgotten I had posted it).

                  Off of a positive rec from a friend, I met Ashley, and was VERY impressed, and have since lessoned with her, left my horses in her care (I am a NEUROTIC about horse care, and totally trusted her), and have had her put many training rides on my boys.

                  I would say that I was very lucky to stumble upon her!! LOVE her.

                  I have lived in Aiken and Ocala and have trained with some awesome trainers, and a BNT (he was close by and took pitty on my lower-lever-hunter-self!) and I am just as impressed with Ashley, if not more so. I was quite suprised to find ANYone in Fayetteville of her caliber. Southern Pines is close to us, but to avoid having to haul 45 minutes is awesome!

                  So a glowing recommendation from me.

                  I would say the only reason for someone not to like her is because she is skinny and pretty (if I didnt know her I could hate her for that!!!)

                    I am pretty sure she is the *only* HJ in Fayetteville. At least she is the only "real" HJ trainer in Fayetteville that I have come in contact with (and I have known most all of the horse folks here for a loooong time).

                    I had nice contacts give me recommendations in Southern Pines and lessoned out there for a while when I first moved here before finding Ashley, and I am more than happy to stay in the Fayetteville area to ride with her! I feel like she is definitely a young trainer that is on her way up up up.

                      Now that I know Ashley, I feel like this was a very interesting post to be your first and only post...

                      I smell a troll...

                        I don't have any particular interest in this issue (other than I live in NC), but wanted to say it's great that naters came back and posted with her experience, in case others are googling this trainer!
                        ...somewhere between the talent and the potato....
