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!

      I have contacted her about a few horses back when I had a student looking.
      Other than that- I have never heard of her and yet she seems to somehow get all these champions/international horses yet never gives the details (horse name, competition, etc) when asked and instead asked us a ton of Q's to see if we'd be a match for the horse...
      She may have nice horses (we never went to look) but just to be safe- go in with eyes wide open.

            just curious mpack, not trying to create anything here, but were her horses what she said they were? I've seen her adds on dreamhorse before and have a hard time believing that she is getting the champion horses she claims.

                  Britney Sturtz and Brit LeBrand Farm

                  This one is a few fries short of a Happy Meal. Claimed on Dreamhorse that the horse was "for sale" but when we got there, suddenly, that price is the "forever home" adoption price and an outright purchase, if she can bring herself to do it, is at least twice the price. The "forever home" adoption comes with the horse and with her. Forever. She won't sell me the horse, and now she won't let me return him either. We will be asking Coshocton County sheriff for an escort to return the horse this week. In spite of refusing to sign paperwork she'd agreed to for a sale of the horse, she's still cashing the check and "maybe" will give us a pro-rated refund. Won't (or can't) produce coggins or health records on horses that she's allegedly acquired outside of Ohio. The rehab we "adopted" was a good 800 pounds underweight, and in spite of an extremely obvious and painful tendon/suspensory/navicular injury and a "therapeutic" shoe job that resulted in abscesses in both front feet, she stated that she did not have her vet examine the horse or provide any medical treatment for him for over 9 weeks while he was in her "care". Several thousand dollars in vet, farrier, feed and board bills, she thanks us for our "fantastic" care of the horse but will not take him back. Approach this one with extreme caution.

                    Why in the world would you return a horse to her? And seriously EIGHT HUNDRED pounds underweight? What kind of beast did you adopt? That doesn't sound right. at. all.

                    I don't know her from atom (or is it Adam?) but that last post has me scratching my head.

                      I can't believe the ink hasn't even dried from her last lawsuit (that she lost by the way) and she's already at it again- what a shame. 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...

                        I can relate to "dogontired's" situtation. As I indicated in my previous posts--I made the major misstep of getting involved with her. I signed the contract-now clearly an error-just believing she wanted the assurance the horse was getting a good home. [edit] Her latest: she contacted me and said the breeder of the horse that I purchased from her (an untatooed supposedly TB geld she called "Halo") offered her the horse's registration papers. She said she decided to purchase the papers from the breeder-she signed the transfer of ownership(on my horse) and offered the papers to me for $1500.

                              I don't understand your issue with this? Yes if you adopt/buy/otherwise acquire a horse, the responsibility for ALL of it's care and problems are now yours. This is not new, nor should it be a surprise Also if you didn't want to accept responsibility for all of that, how would the seller be able to do that without continued participation? This whole thread has me

                                I think the point is that the person who adopts/buys/acquires the horse from X should not have to report to X anymore than X should report to the person that THEY got the horse from...

                                I guess the deal is where does it end and when can people just own their animal outright ??

                                  to hundredacres and traum

                                  follow up to your notes -- I have adopted several retired racehorses over the years, and thought that this would be a similar routine. But no, it's not. First sucker punch from [her] is that you don't get to see any of the paperwork until you are standing there on her parents' farm, looking at the horse. I should have walked away at that point, because all of a sudden there was the "forever home" price and the "sale" price. Funny how the ad on Dreamhorse stated "sale/adopt - same price". But she presented me with the statement that she needed to "move" this horse "right now, today" because she has several rescue horses coming in the very next day. The girl is 24 and claims she has placed over 2300 horses. She lives 20 miles from Sugarcreek. You do the math.

                                  I am done with the harrassment, the phone calls, the psychodrama and the "I'm on my way" to pick up the horse BS. I negotiated a bill of sale in good faith with [her] that included a warranty that she is conveying good and clear title to the horse to me. Lo and behold, I send the signed document with a cashiers check, and suddenly I get this email from [her] (at work, no less) accusing me of being unprofessional and unethical, and who did I think I was, she NEVER would consider using any bill of sale but her own. Here's what her bill of sale says - we love that you're taking such wonderful care of our horse, we'll sell the horse to you but retain the right to receive monthly updates and pix for the rest of his life, access to your vet and farrier and copies of all records, and an open invitation to allow her access the horse "to make sure he's ok". Forever. Are you kidding me?????? This is a bill of sale????? Oh yeah, by the way, her bill of sale and her adoption contract both fail to state that she has good and clear title to the horse. Surprise!

                                  I don't mind adopting or buying a horse, but I will not be involved with this [person] for the rest of the horse's life. If you think you want to rescue this poor horse after we return him this week, watch Dreamhorse for a posting on a "rehab project" from rocnchocolatediesel. Our price was $1000 for the adoption, $2000 for the purchase. The horse has profound navicular, rotated coffin bones in both front feet, a deep flexor tendon trauma injury that is not showing any signs of progress after 10 weeks, and was low nerved at some point in his life. This she presented as a "rehab project" when I told her we were looking for a jumper for my husband. At least we gave him unconditional love and care for 10 weeks and put several hundred pounds on him. The rest of this poor animal's life is in God's hands and on her head.
