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!

  • CANTER M-A trainer listed horses (Charles Town, WV)

    I think I'm going to keep an open thread on here, because there are always a few horses that need to find homes quickly and are giveaways or "make any offer" situations. These are several that could really use some new homes:

    This guy is very sweet, but is not earning his keep. He looks to be growing, and just wants to be a snugglebunny.

    Sold -- This is a very nice mare - she had knee chip surgery but has been racing on that for a while. Trainer said she is a broodmare prospect but she is probably fine for some riding too. She is VERY substantial - big, wide bodied horse.

    Sold/homed: Cute mare who is off the track and been let down, ready to go.

    SOLD... And last but not least, another pretty bay mare.

    PLEASE NOTE - horses on this thread are horses that need homes fast and are being represented by our 501c3. Please read listings before calling trainers as they may not be total giveaways.

    Just going to mention that for you sporthorse breeders who love Damascus . . . you might want to look her up.

      She is nicely bred for hunter/jumper.

      She's linebred on Nasrullah, her dam is up close line bred on Damascus, her sire's damsire is the wonderful Stagedoor Johnny AND the she has Double Jay on the page from Pleasant Colony.

      Nice looking mare too.

        This is an older gelding, 11 yo, who just has the kindest personality! This one really would shine as a young person's pet, and as he's older he's probably seen it all. Very good looking and just a doll!
        Any idea what type of price range they're thinking of? He looks like a real sweetie, and if in the lower price ranges, I would love to look into him.

          I don't want to make any claims for the OP, but often the owners are looking for good homes. All the horses listed NEED homes sooner than later and at a "price" appropriate for COTH giveaway listing. Price can be very negotiable.

          I hope you take a chance and look at Mac - he is listed as very special. He could be a perfect match!

          One request of listing groups like Canter is that you be respectful of the trainer's/assistant's time.

          Best wishes!

            Yep. Usually when we're told "make an offer" it means that the primary concern is finding a home quickly. I can't actually make recommendations in that regard, though (like, I couldn't tell you if you should offer $200 or $2000) but the trainer seems mostly concerned with finding him a good, appropriate home. He's a real sweetie

            Also as an FYI, though, I can say any prices listed on the above are likely very negotiable.

              The "pretty big-bodied mare"

              Well, y'know, if that trainer *really* wanted to place that mare in an excellent home, she should ship her down to Richmond so I can sneak her into our pasture. The bay mare that prefers turf and has the "unique star"...

              Just sayin' - and that's without having a clue what the mare's pedigree is, too!

              OM

                Yeah, in my imagination, I already named her and took her on a cross country ride and bought her a new saddle and gave her treats and let her give me kisses and preened smugly when everybody told me how cute she is. Le sigh.

                  Yep - had that same daydream. Must be a Pisces thing.

                  I do find it interesting that the trainer hasn't listed her name or pedigree. This makes me think that trainer would be happy to get rid of the associated costs of keeping this horse as obviously, she must not have great bloodlines!

                  So, please, have her shipped asap and I will take her right off that trainer's hands! LOL

                    Partly that's SOP (we don't usually put the names of horses still at the C-T directly in the listings unless we are requested to), and partly it's our volunteers hearing the name wrong, so I initially couldn't find it anywhere:

                          I'm waiting to win the lottery!

                          Sadly, I simply cannot justify getting another horse... but if one just magically appeared, ha ha, I could manage to talk my way around that! I just hope that by a little well-intentioned admiration via chatting, we keep thread bumped up so that these all find good homes.

                          She really would look good in my pasture with my other bay TB, though.

                          Edited to add: She has an awesome pedigree which only adds to my yen factor. Thank you so much for posting that - very similar bloodlines to my current TBs that are just wonderful. Please someone go get her and the others!

                              Actually, Anna....., I believe that has been addressed already - and I actually meant it in jest (hence the smiley-face).

                              Trust me - the lines on the one mare ARE nice. Very nice. If there were a way for me to go get her right now, I probably would (the BF even likes her - of course, this was after we realized she was the spitting image of his mare!).

                              Most of the listings placed here are from caring, legitimate people working with trainers whose primary interest is to find the horses a good home.

                                  LOL at myself - I rarely read sig lines and just assumed it was a troll - which, lately (imo) is worse than a spammer!

                                        He was quiet and well mannered for his photos, but as we only see the horses for about 30 seconds to take their pictures, that's all I can tell you, other than that he raced 14 times (very slowly) and his owner wants him out of there ASAP.
