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!

  • A circuit jumper mare free lease in SF Bay Area

    Hey guys, I just found out that the lady who is currently leasing Ember up in Davis is getting a divorce. It looks like she won't be able to continue the lease after November. She has been doing some jumping clinics and eventing training and some second level dressage with her.

    If there is anyone out there that might be interested please let me know. I'll be moving her back down to the Portola Valley area when the lease is up at the beginning of November and would love to find a full or half leasor for her.


    I am looking for a free lease situation for my jumper mare as her rider had a baby.

    She is a 13 year old liver chestnut Morgan mare, 15h. registered name Brightwater Ember.

    She is a brave, forward, catty jumper and has schooled up to 4'. Elise (her rider) competed in the AA division generally at 3'-3", 3'-6" and 3'-9". They did very well, we could only afford 2-3 shows each year but she placed well and won a few classes including her AA class at Pebble Beach. At lower heights, 3' and under, she is point and shoot. She has schooled cross country to Novice and competed in some hunter paces. She has a very solid dressage base.

    She is extremely sensible and as close to bomb proof as you get. However she is VERY forward and needs a confident, diplomatic rider. Her last rider describes her as a Ferrari. She is a blast to ride.

    I'm not asking a lease fee. The leasor would need to cover her expenses and insurance. She has EPSM so needs to stay on a high fat low starch diet with some inexpensive supplements that I can provide. I have had one of her hocks injected twice over the last 4-5 years.

    Here are a few video links and links to her photo album

                So far I've only had one person come see her, a low level eventer that wasn't quite ready to take on a horse. I have a jumper rider coming out to day. Keep your fingers crossed that they are a good match.

                No one on here in the SF bay area? I found her last rider on COTH and it worked out fabulously.

                      I would be willing to do a half lease where I keep my dressage mare in Los Altos Hills. Maybe someone who wants to trail ride and do some arena schooling and light jumping. Trailer with us to hunter paces and clinics/lessons.

                        Oh my, so tempting. I'm a full time student at Cal and, as I just sold my horse, I don't really have time to lease something. She's beautiful, though!

                          Have you tried contacting Peter Breakwell? They've got a few young riders that are awesome, and a free lease is hard to pass up. I saw this horse go last summer and we were all having a blast watching her go! Also, try contacting Pony club and Woodside Jr. Riders.

                          Let me call a friend of mine and see if she might be interested. She owns her own property in Woodside and her own jumper mare is now retired, but she loves a fast, aggressive mare.

                          If you pm me, we can exchange details and so forth. I'm local.

                              Yes, I emailed Peter her info a while back. He said he would keep an eye out. I think it's harder to place her because of her small size and big personality lol. She definitely has that "little big horse" Morgan personality.

                              She gets a lot of compliments at the shows and I love watching her go just to see and hear the peoples reactions when she is on course. She gets noticed! Of course sometimes it's "look at that pony go!, wow!". She definitely is the smallest horse in the big jumper ring but she places and wins.

She has been doing some jumping clinics and eventing training and some second level dressage with her.

                                I will be bringing her back down to the Portola Valley are at the end of November. If anyone out there knows anyone that would be interested in a free lease for her please let me know. Thanks!

                                  Hey, not sure why it didn't let me know there was a post! She's at Holly Fox Farms. Her current lessor has mostly been doing a variety if clinics with her and dressage lessons. Not sure with who, lessor is a dressage judge. I know Ember will be doing a Tanya Vik clinic tomorrow.

                                  I'm still trying to find someone for her so please let me know if you might know someone. It's surprisingly hard to find a new lessor at this time of year!

                                      Is she available for an offsite lease, or are you trying to keep her in Davis?

                                        If i'm posting on Coth, it's either raining so I can't ride or it's night time and I can't sleep.
