Website Terms of Use

We invite our subscribers to enjoy all the features this site has to offer.  But we must require that each user abide by certain rules so that no one's rights are stepped on.  Failure to abide by these rules can result in immediate termination of access to this site, without refund or recourse.

Summary of Website Terms of Use

1. Do not share your logon passwords and user names.  Our system is designed to detect this immediately and suspend any account where more than one person signs on using the same username and password.

2. Do not reprint, republish, repost, or otherwise distribute or transmit content or images presented on this Website.  Downloading is easy, but just because you may be able to copy our content doesn't mean you own it.  Unauthorized use of, copying or reselling of our content, trademarks, and other proprietary material can subject you to civil or even criminal liability.  You are welcome to use share links like Digg, Facebook, Furl etc. and our tell-a-friend feature but please don't violate our copyright.  Please note that our materials may be downloaded and used only for your personal use.  If you wish to use the materials for commercial purposes or for a presentation to others such as in a classroom setting, please contact us at for information about our license rates.

3. Respect our membership plans and members!  This site is for horse professionals i.e. horse trainers, professional riders, breeders, stable managers and riding instructors.  This means - if you are a marketing professional, run an equestrian related website or own a business that sells products and services to horse professionals but you are not actually a horse professional -  you should NOT become a member or this site.  If we suspect that you are not directly involved with horses as a business (or starting a horse business) or have signed up for the site to misuse our resources or take advantage of our members, your account will be cancelled and you will not receive a refund. 

Respect our membership plans and members!

4. No advertising, trading of goods or services, or other commercial use is allowed except in the classified ad section and specific forums.  No bulk e-mail, junk mail or spam, chain letters, or repeat postings of the same message is permitted anywhere on the forums.

5. Please use your own name when posting to the discussion forums.  Do not impersonate anyone else.

6. Treat other subscribers with courtesy and respect when posting messages to the discussion groups.  No unnecessary name calling or abuse toward any subscriber is allowed. We take your business seriously and expect you to treat this site and its members accordingly.

7. Please avoid shouting (using all capital letters) in the discussion forums.

8. Do not use vulgarity, obscenity, profanity, ethnic slurs, hate speech, or sexually explicit language, or harass, abuse, or threaten other subscribers in the discussion forums.  Do not libel or defame others.  This site strongly disapproves flaming.

9. When you post content in the discussion forums, you permit this site to display and distribute the content, and to use it for advertising and promotion.  You grant to this site the complete, perpetual, but non-exclusive right to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, translate, distribute, sub-license, etc. the content in whole or in part, throughout the world and universe, on a royalty-free basis.

10. We reserve the right to remove objectionable postings, ban forum use or terminate subscriptions.  We do not try to edit or to monitor messages posted on the discussion forums, but we reserve the right to edit or remove objectionable postings.  The person posting a message, and not us, is solely responsible for his or her postings.  Violators may be permanently banned from using the forums, or even have their subscriptions terminated.

A Special Note to Universities and Other Educators 
Please note that our website content and written materials are available for personal use only and may not be used for commercial purposes or as a teaching tool without our prior express written permission.  We offer reduced license rates for the use of our materials by universities and other educators in the classroom.  Not all of our written materials may be available for license, and we reserve the right to refuse license of any written materials.  For further information on licensing, please contact us at
