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!

  • Free lease needed on Former Prelim. eventer and PC horse.

    Hey everyone! I am back from Ireland! My horse still needs a situation... I am back from Europe with no job and am finding that if I want to take a job, it would be better if he did not come with me. My finances are tight.

    Here is a little bit of information about him: I have had him since Jan 2001. He steeplechased before I got him, and then was in an abusive situation. I got him after he was in the horrible situation and he was worried and if you raised your voice, he would go in the corner of his stall and try to become invisible. It took him a while to trust me but we evented to the preliminary level, did jumpers, some dressage shows and trail rode. I also took him to my B and A ratings in Pony Club. He is a perfect lunger and has been used in 2 HA testings because he will stand all day to be messed with and because of his lungeing. I have taught some kids how to lunge horses using him, and I have also taught a few lessons on him. He is perfect for a walk/trot person in the ring. He can get a little fast at the canter if the rider uses their hands instead of their body to slow him. But, he can also be used for more advanced riders because he will let you know when you are doing something wrong. I do not suggest that he be used for many lessons with many riders as he does prefer to bond with one person, but he can do some. With the right person I think he would have no problem doing some lower level eventing. He is currently being ridden about 2x a week at the walk, trot, and canter. Just about anyone can ride him at the walk and trot. He is also currently out with 2 weanlings and is a fabulous babysitter.

    He is the grey horse in the pictures in the link below named Magic. He has no vices. He is a complete gentleman on the ground, puts his head in his halter for you, very sweet and people oriented. ANYONE can handle, groom, clip, etc. He has been sound with the exception of the random abcess/bruise. Over a year ago he took off part of his hoof in the fence (not sure how he did it). He was never lame on it, but he had to be on stall rest and then limited turnout while it grew out. He had to wear a special shoe, etc. It is all grown out now and you cannot tell that it ever happened. He is barefoot now, and sound.

    When I returned from abroad, he had lost a lot of weight. I am not sure what exactly happened, but I have been trying to get wt. back on him. He could possibly have ulcers and I am experimenting with some things now. He has gained some weight solely on BP and ultium. I think the weight issue would also be resolved if he had good pasture. The barn owner currently has waaaaaay too many horses.

    Please let me know if you have more questions.
    Thanks

        Hey, He just turned 19 (doesnt look it) and yes, I would consider a permanent home for him. So, if after 6 months he is happy where he is, it is perfectly fine with me if he stays there.

              Would you consider a home as far away as Missouri? I have 16 1/2 acres for my four horses (I have to put a grazing muzzle on the filly, lest she get fat! I cut it for hay once yearly, and the grass is STILL way ahead of them). My Thoroughbred used to require 15 lbs. grain daily (when we lived in Wisconsin) and now he requires half that much, and not daily, he pretty much only gets grained on hunting days. The pasture is clover (3 different species), lespedeza, fescue and big bluestem, a type of prairie grass upon which the buffalo thrived, evidently. Do you think your horse would like foxhunting?

                I may well be interested ,

                Is he still available?
                I may well be interested for one of my kids (who rides with me). Would he be a good schoolmaster for a boy, who is a nice rider but has never done eventing?
                Is he sensible on the trails and riding out in the pasture?
                What kind of dressage does he do?

                It is a super home up here in Virginia, go to www.cedarcreekstables.us to check it out.

                Let me know if he is still available.
                Yours
