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!

      Duh, it's called HUNTER breeding. Of course it is political. What does that have to do with Jill Burnell being a criminal?

          That was my thought when I read that comment too. The ribbon lottery is alive and well at all shows where you are paying for the judges opinion. Not sure what that has to do with this thread.

            Sorry...nothing to do with a criminal: responded to what posted re value of JB offspring and LR you repeatedly post what offered for yours and then LP, who many of us who WATCH and attend many HB shows with no "dogs" showing, know had a deal at one time with JB. You are not clearly disinterested parties...I get it.

            Let it drop. I felt queasy about JB years ago and got villified by many of the folks currently posting they "see the light". Good luck to all...still have a pang of pity for all the honest stallion owners out there without a false facade market machine for that elusive "hunter" baby!

            • I have no idea what you are talking about. I attempted to breed a replacement for my irreplaceable show horse which I assure you is more diificult than breeding for the elusive hunter. In the meantime I am having a little fun with her.

                I don't know what you are smoking, but let me give you some FACTS:

                1. There was never any "deal" with Jill. She sent us four babies, we sold three very quickly, and the last we showed through his two year old year, then sold him. End of story. She PAID us to go out and look at her stock this year, but nothing came of it. We have had horses from many sources over the years, breeders and buyers alike. She was just another.

                2. I have made no secret of my admiration of Redwine's get. You have not lived with them, tested them, observed them over time, so how you can make these sweeping generalizations just because you watch some classes from the sidelines, I don't get. But we have had offspring from more than 17 stallions pass through our barn. Can anyone else make that claim? I don't think so. But it gives us a unique perspective and we are able to compare one to another. We have free jumped them. We deal with them on the ground. They have ALL been nice horses, but of course you develop preferences. We have never had an Apiro and would love to rectify that, as well as others. I only speak to things I know to be facts, not assumptions.

                3. This whole argument started over your constant assertion that people breed/buy SOLELY for the HB ring, and I have told you repeatedly that that is just. Not. True. By extension, your disdain for Redwine has indicated that is all you think his kids can do. You have decided that they couldn't possibly be athletes, and I can assure you THROUGH ACTUAL EXPERIENCE WITH THEM that that is also not true. If you don't like him, fine, but his kids will prove themselves. Brandon has a three year old he thinks has unlimited potential. Ask him. There are two in FL that are older and the owner is bringing them through the divisions. Watch for them.

                4. I haven't spoken to Jill since July, so not exactly a close relationship. Junior is an equal opportunity handler and other than our longest term customer, who has been with us since day one, no one gets preferential treatment.

                  I also have had offspring from 15-17 Warmblood stallions, plus about half a dozen or more Hunter, or Eventing type TB stallions offspring spend a good bit of tme in my barn, and I totally agree that is does give you a fairly unique perspective.

                  That said, I have sometimes come to totally different conclusions than the masses. One VERY popular warmblood stallion has been crossed a zillion times to TB mares, with often disappointing results in the temperament department.

                  That same stallion crosses amazingly well with full warmblood mares, but that is not what he has mostly been used for in the Hunter world.

                  Being able to compare several of a stallion's offspring, out of similar and different type mares really is nice to be able to learn from. Especially nice when the boarders are paying me to board them, and the observing is more of a bonus.

                    That is a little bit of a ridiculous statement as any trainer that has been around for any length of time will have dealt with offspring from many different stallions.

                    For instance, at my current barn, we have offspring from 19 different stallions. I think there were at least 14 different stallions represented at the previous barn, with offspring of additional stallions represented in previous years.

                    • Point taken. But MY point was that actually living with these horses gives you a much different perspective than watching them in HB classes and decreeing that they will not amount to much...

                        Agree, And time will tell if the Redwine offspring amount to much in the performance ring. We will have to take a look at the stats in a few years to see how he did as a sire of performance horses.

To get people to stop being embarrassed and keeping it to themselves. To get people to finally do something....and then you fall off the face of the earth and leave all of them hanging....which makes them more embarrassed, more humiliated...defeated. Great job you did for everybody! So, were you Jill? One of Jill's friends? One of Jill's clients? Did somebody threaten you to stop what you were doing? Threaten to sue you? And if that's the case...for what?

                          As a result, I've heard further rumors this fall that the never ending drama continues.

                          So all of those people that posted on here about being wronged, has anyone done anything, spoken to someone? Anything?

                          I am doing something about it. Please contact me with any and all information regarding the Burnell matter. These horses and owner have moved into Marin County. Thank you for any information you have.

                          • While I do think it's odd and somewhat crappy that ED has disappeared, I do not think she is Jill or one of her friends based on her posting history here. Although, I could be wrong...

                            Thank you HoofJustice for taking this on. Something needs to be done.

                            Daventry, I have also heard of much drama this fall even though she's been silent on the forums, Facebook and so forth. It's never ending.

                            • i would suggest that one of the "known" COTH folks team up with hoofjustice so there is another person that has the info in case this person goes "poof"

                                  But was disappointed to read that shenanigans have continued, after all the time spent on getting the word out.

                                    • I find it interesting that the humane society may be investigating. While there may or may not be a humane issue, there absolutely is a criminal element to her business that needs to be addressed for this fraud to come to an end. Not sure if they can do anything about that part or not.

                                        Yeah- they might not have realized the e-mail address was public (easy mistake to make when registering here) and I don't think it is right to publish it like that without permission.

                                          Done. Sorry about that. I knew emails had been posted earlier in this thread so thought since it was public it was ok. My mistake.
