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!

  • Is this a lawyer she is actually paying?



    I am not sure what having her USEF card proves. If you pay the money you can get a card for a stick horse.

      Yup.

      As an aside, I think this thread is WELL past popcorn and boxed wine... Who wants cheesecake and a cyberita?

      OP, I hope your filly is returned safely what a heartbreaking situation.

      And runwayz, I have stolen your quote for my signature.

        If this is all over facebook, that's a lot of people to sue!! OP did you withhold the registration papers when you sent her the horses? You don't think she could have gotten papers through a different one do you??

        I agree with the comments about payments, with one exception. I would allow them but only if the horse(s) remained on my property until paid in full and the purchaser bought insurance that listed me as a benifactor if something happened to the animal. I've learned the hard way on the insurance part....

        • can we please try to stay relatively on topic?

          Because if the Roy bashing continues, this thread will get closed which may very well be Roy's purpose in posting on this thread. Get everyone off topic and trashing him, get the thread closed and Shazaam (I love that show back in the day!) "problem" goes away or at least off page 1. Which is what happened with the last thread.
          Smart thinking. Thanks for pointing that out ...

            Except you can't sue for libel or slander in small claims. Not to mention I remember seeing a suit against her by her lawyer so she obviously didn't pay them either.

            • I am a little stunned to see several well known breeders listed on the GFF FB site as "Friends" and with "Likes" for GFF. Some of those folks post on this forum pretty regularly and I can't imagine they are not aware of JB's ongoing shenanigans.

              Comment


              • I admit I know very little about how facebook operates and the rules, but would it be possible to start a group "Jill Burnell is a thief" or "Warning Jill Burnell"? We have enough people here that would "like" it that I imagine it would move up the listings pretty quickly and pop up at the top of a search.

                    You could start a Boycott GFF page it was done not long ago with an equine supply vendor.

                    • There actually is a facebook page with "_____ ____ is an art thief" because she indeed is, with other artist's work posted on her facebook and website, even selling poor quality prints of other's work.
                      It has been up for a while now and has not been taken down.

                      • You can definitely make a page on Facebook about this. I used to be a member of one for Stuart Black when he was fired from a certain North Texas farm and he then told the police that the farm owners killed his girlfriend and he needed to get back on the farm to find her body...lol. Sorry Meghan, I know he trains your horses, but it was too funny not to join and watch.

                        ETA I liked GFF Facebook page several months back, again, for entertainment value..lol.

                                    • Another idea

                                      To the OP: another suggestion...several websites post the entries for horse shows. Horsehowtime.com is one of them. Golden State Horse Show 5/23-27
                                      in Sacramento is USEF approved and will have HB classes. They're listed on Horse Show Time, and hopefully the list of entries will be up soon.

                                      I know it's time consuming, but perhaps if each of us takes a minute and looks up show entries for just one show, whatever the website, it may help.

                                      It's also unfortunate that there is apparently no recourse through USEF. I understand their reluctance to get involved between owners. However
                                      the person they claim is the leading hunter breeding breeder is far from a leader in equestrian sports.

                                        Hey, her "like us on FB and subscribe to our emails to win a free breeding" was sheer genius. It's how I first heard of her farm, being way on the other coast and not so much into hunters.

                                        Some time in the last two years I started following this forum though and seeing her name pop up over and over again, and not just from one disgruntled individual.... They're coming from all over the place! Unfortunately I think people will not truly take notice till there is an actual arrest.

                                        (Why hasn't there been an actual arrest?)

                                        OP, I hope you get your filly back. I hope you've got a good lawyer and a judgement against her. I know a judgement will just be ignored, but at least then she won't have a legal leg to stand on, and if it is ignored, more warrants. Here in FL they can pull your driver's license if you don't make your court-ordered payments.

                                        Unfortunately no lawyers have materialized on this board (maybe try the H/J forum). I know some great equine lawyers but they're all here in FL.

                                        • Just wanted to say something in regards to Rocksolid. I believe I read she also bought a GFF horse. Not hard to get "paid" when you buy a horse. It's a deal and so JB probably had to pay nothing. Very easy to say you're getting paid because technically you are but aren't waiting on the cash. When it's time to start paying hopefully filly will be sold or she goes back home or bills are unpaid. It is how people continue to operate withs goods and a dodgy cash flow.

                                          I hope OP gets filly back. She is beautiful and it's just a very frustrating situation.
