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 hope your friend is smart enough to send a Bill of Sale for buying the horse "as is" and no warrenties etc for the exact amount she accepted. Let the trainer's get their money from the buyers.

    Seems like she ended up with what she intended anyway since she is NOT paying commissions

    equine.com has a good bill of sale

        • So it is Friday,finally.... just as predicted by many...The vet check shows problems ,and price is further negotiated down. If the x rays were as bad as they sound ,I wouldn't have bought the horse. But then again ,after seeing the pics of the girl riding,I am not sure there is another horse around which won't kill her .Probably why they couldn't find one in Florida in the first place. If she doesn't improve she probably doesn't have more than a couple of years jumping in her either.

              • How is she trusting that the guy will send her a check for the agreed upon amount? Any bets on whether it will be for what ~he~ wanted to pay in the first place? What will be her recourse then? Have they Faxed back and forth a signed sale contract?

                I'd also bet $2 she'll never see a check at all. There isn't anything different here from when she first shipped the horse down there.

                      • HL! Yeah! Can't wait to see Super Donkeyman!

                        I think we are going to need him to head off into the swamp lands to find the new "owner" and Thing 1 & 2 who have had a 3 day weekend lead to disappear back into the muck from whence they came with the nice horsey in tow! Since we all know the "certified" check won't arrive, won't be for the right amount or won't be certified and will bounce!

                          I think his checks are written with disappearing ink.

                          • I can't believe that this people spent almost 2 months to try to the horse and are willing to buy him with a very crappy vet check. It just doesn't make sense ...

                            If I was buying a horse for my daughter to show the hunters, calcification of the ankles would be a deal breaker. And trust me, I have bought my share load of horses with less than stellar vet check, ... but that one would be a no, no ... I don't get this people.

                            Let me get it straight. They want to buy a horse, but refuse to go to fly to see him.

                            Try him over a very long period of time because they want to be sure, sure, sure that it will be the right horse.

                            They take him to a show and it's a disaster, the horse refuse and don't finish his classes and teh kid can't ride him. (Red flag)

                            He has a very bad PPE, and they still go ahead ?

                            It just doesn't seem right

                                • In case anyone is reading this:

                                  To the buyers: Shame on you. You have totally taken advantage of a kid trying to sell a horse. You have utilized nearly every "stall" tactic available while utilizing the horse. I guess if you're a true capitalist, you've just done good business for yourself, but once anyone figures out who you are and what you've done here, you'll be hard pressed to find a seller in the future who wants to deal with you. Too bad for your kid, who is probably completely clueless.

                                  To the trainers: Shame on you! Shame on you! thing one and thing two. You KNEW what you were doing, shame shame on you! You took advantage, you swindled and dealed, you did shady things and you screwed up the deal. You ought to bury your heads in sand oh so deep! A conscience like yours? Oh, my own heart would weep! Good luck in the future! Good luck you will need it! All who you know who are reading this shiznit? THey'll never trust you, and good! As they shoudn't! No trust anymore to thing one and thing two. Be carefule now, we're all watching you!


                                  To the seller: You put up with crap, your spine, it got weak. Your horse is okay, but your bank account's sick! You'll never get paid at this rate, no you won't! We're pulling for you--and smiling and cheering, but if you don't get the check, oh lordy god-willing, I hope you'll find an attorney who's smart. And blow these folks out like a stinky dog fart!
                                  A good horseman doesn't have to tell anyone...the horse already knows.

                                  Might be a reason, never an excuse...

                                        If I was buying a horse for my daughter to show the hunters, calcification of the ankles would be a deal breaker. And trust me, I have bought my share load of horses with less than stellar vet check, ... but that one would be a no, no ... I don't get this people.

                                        Let me get it straight. They want to buy a horse, but refuse to go to fly to see him.

                                        Try him over a very long period of time because they want to be sure, sure, sure that it will be the right horse.

                                        They take him to a show and it's a disaster, the horse refuse and don't finish his classes and teh kid can't ride him. (Red flag)

                                        He has a very bad PPE, and they still go ahead ?

                                        It just doesn't seem right

                                        I'm sure the horse is fine and who knows whose x-rays they are.

                                          ...

                                          To the trainers: Shame on you! Shame on you! thing one and thing two. You KNEW what you were doing, shame shame on you! You took advantage, you swindled and dealed, you did shady things and you screwed up the deal.
