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!

    Wow! The similarities are shocking...except Second WInd Adoption Program at Crossed Sabers only requires yearly update.

    2300 horses? monthly updates? yikes! Yep, sounds like she goes to Sugarcreek, picks up $50 horses and 'adopts' them for $1000. Nice. But the lack of care and the obsessive control issues are wild!

    I am assuming that at least this person isn't operating as an illegitimate 501(c)3??

    Wonder how many of these people are out there?

      Celita did open a school. Now we know what she teaches? I think an interstate problem should be of more interest to the IRS then 1 lone person?

        Geez, one Celeita is bad enough! Hopefully word will continue to spread about the two of them and, eventually, maybe, hopefully their respective operations will come to a crashing end.

            Any connection between the two?

            No, Britney Sturtz or Brit Le' Brand Farm does not have a website--none that I could locate. Boy, after reading from Crossed Sabre's site--I'm wondering if there is a connection between the two? Britney often posts pretty elaborate claims in her ads. Things like: international experience or grand prix jumper?? Very similiar to the descriptions of some of the cross sabre horses...I wonder if mine came from there? Mine is a gray gelding Britney advertised under the name "Future" but told me his name was "Halo".

              No website, never any pictures of her "champion" horses either. If they were that great I'd certainly put the picture out there for people to see. I can only hope that by word of mouth she won't be doing business much longer [edit].

                  UPDATE ON BRITNEY STURTZ ABOUT COURT: after Britney dismissed the lawsuit she filed against us, now she sent a certified letter of request for us to exhume the horse take him in for cremation and deliver vet certification of cremation and the remains to her at her farm for burial, of course she would like this at my cost. Her reason for the dismissal was to protect the confidentiallity of her clients, I subpenia her records, pertaining to the horse including previous adoption papers, this caused her to dismiss. I am probably going to file a libel suit against her for slander of our farm, it may be the only way to make her go away.....will keep you posted

                      of course the certified request was two pages long (due to all the drama she wrote about leading up to the request)

If you adopt a horse, are you agreeing to take on the responsibility of any and all problems the horse might have, like if you adopt a child? What I don't understand is (and it's probably spelled out in your paperwork) why does she still have so much control after the "adoption" has taken place? I mean, you can't return the horse, but if she thinks your "forever home" isn't good enough she can come and take it back? I don't understand either why you would want to take the horse back to her after you have invested all the time and money to rehab the horse, unless you plan on trying to get your money back. If that's the case, good luck...
                          What last lawsuit? Can you elaborate?
                          Airborne? Oh. Yes, he can take a joke. Once. After that, the joke's on you.

                            Okay, here is my response to her: I would respond right away. I would tell her that I already had the horse exhumed, and cremated, too! But I already threw its ashes off a cliff into the sea. Then I would tell her that I did, for personal reasons, keep a tiny bit of ash which I keep forever in my pinky decoder ring, but that she can have it, meaning the ash, not the ring. I would then tell her that the smidgeon of ash is included in the envelope with this letter. Then I would tip a cigarette ash into the envelope, seal the envelope and send it to her certified mail. That way, its recorded what she received from me. If she doesn't claim the mail, and it gets sent back, I can always say (sigh) that I tried.

                            Or, you could always send her a box of fireplace ashes. If you had a horse tooth, I'd put that in too.

                              I have a horse tooth around here somewhere and I will gladly send it on if needed. Other wise I have a deer skull that I could pop the teeth out of - I would gladly go to the trouble - for he cause.

                                  Gosh--you've got me LOL with the tooth and the ashes! She's probably wanting to sell the ashes to whoever-wherever she got the horse from! Wow! Hampshire-It's sad-it doesn't go away! I'm impressed with your stamina! On behalf of all of us in the trenches-don't let her win!

                                    Hampshire, did she bother to tell you about the lady up in Detroit who had the horse she was leasing from Brit Le' Brand repossessed by [her] a week before a big show? Missy Britney got her panties in a knot after she got pix from the gal in Detroit, and said the horse was not being taken care of (the world according to Britney), and literally drove up to Mich, repossessed the horse and took him home to Brit Le' Brand Farms. That was around the beginning of July, was a warmblood, wonder if it's the "rehab oldenburg" she has posted on equine.com for $500?

                                        I found a dead mouse, rather shriveled up, but I'll be glad to donate him. Not to mention Mrs. Long, our black snake who committed sewerslide by hanging herself. I've left her hanging there, cause it's kinda cool looking. But for a good cause.............
