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!

    While he may be offered a much higher salary, it's because the tax base is so high. When my parents left the Island in 1995, on a 75 X 100' lot they were paying $17,000 in property tax alone. Sales tax is through the roof too.

    You've got some serious number crunching to do.

      Yep, SERIOUS number crunching! Also remember that to get off the island you have to either take the ferry (as previously discussed) or go Cross Bronx or one of the sets of bridges. . . it's a nightmare! And now a lot of the island is still in total disarray from the storm. My sister said parts of it look like a bombed out section of London during the blitz.

      Oh, and it's not free to take the bridges

        Well, so far, the 59th St bridge still is free <fingers crossed>, but that only gets you into Manhattan lol

            Before I brought my horse to college I kept him at a great backyard barn in Manorville. They were outside 24/7 unless the weather got really bad, in which case they each had a stall to wait out storms. Great care, big riding ring, tons of trails right off of the ring and across the (quiet) street. Paddocks aren't huge fields, but they do the job. If you're interested feel free to PM me and I can get you contact info

              Banshee, if you look around you will find "half day" turnout (abt 3 hours), "all day" turnout (about 6 hours), and some places will do night turnout or pasture board. The longer turnout is not common and most places are dry lots, but there are exceptions, especially backyard barns and in Suffolk towards Manorville, etc.

              Yeah, folks are right, the turnout is not great and will not be what you're used to. But it's not all horrible, either. I've been to places where turnout is an hour if you're lucky. It's not quite that bad!

                Banshee - I live on the North Fork (on the East End of Long Island) and board at BJ Farm in Jamesport. It is a lovely spot with huge grass turnouts and, at the moment, a waiting list. I would suggest, if considering a move to L.I., that you look into eastern Suffolk County (Riverhead east to Orient Point) and see if that area would suit your needs.

                  If you are now living in Texas, LI will be quite the culture shock, and not in a good way. I live about an hour north of NYC and LI is like another world. Traffic, crowds, congestion and just about any other inconvenience you could think of. Turnout is not a priority at many barns and you might be better to consider a retirement barn in Putnam or Dutchess country for your horse. It would be a drive from LI but your horse would be able to see the light of day for more than a few hours. There are some very nice places that take good care of the horses. I don't think you will enjoy living on LI after being in TX. Not to mention the attitudes of NY people (especially LI) vs. Texas people. Not quite the same..

                      I don't know how far east the OP will be willing to travel but Connetquot Park is also a beautiful place to ride and there a number of backyard situations bordering the park that may work. You can check www.liequine.com for listings.

                        Bj's is great. I kept young horses there for years.

                        But as far as checking LIequine for leads? You were kidding right?
                        All they post there is real estate adverts.

                        Try contacting Nassau Suffolk Horse Owners or Islip Horsemen's. They should be able to help.

                          Actually, I am serious about liequine.com. If you click on "services & classifieds" and then scroll down to "training/lessons/boarding" there are about 16 different listings for board - both private settings & barns - OP may find a situation that works for her horse. Just avoid the site's message board!
