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!

  • South Jersey 12 y.o. TB Gelding, 16 Hands

    Looking for someone to Free Lease a 16 Hand, 12 y.o. TB Gelding. Horse is sound with normal joint maintenance and is ready to ride and compete now. He spent the last 5-6 years eventing with a Junior from BN to T level and has a verifiable USEA record. I am his original owner who bought the horse from the track and started his event career. He was sold to a Junior rider who recently went to college and gave the horse back to me as she could not take him with her. I am not looking to sell him again as I want to make sure that he has me as his back up safety when it is time for him to retire, but I would like someone to ride and enjoy him (and pick up his bills!) in the meantime.

    Great ground manners, ties, bathes, clips, self loads and travels well. His behavior is the same at home or away and he hacks out nicely alone or in company. Wears a snaffle all 3 phases, is an easy, safe and honest jumper xc and sj and has an automatic lead change. Overall a pretty quiet and easy horse to ride.


    He is an opportunistic cribber. I have his feed tub on the ground and electric wire on the top of my fences with no available wooden surfaces for him so he does not wear a cribbing collar at my place. When he has something to grab onto, he will crib but can be controlled with a collar.


    He came back to me a bit nappy and needs someone to continue to work that out of him. He will throw in some crow hops and bucks to try to get out of going forward. I pull his head to one side to stop the behavior and then push him forward and he goes right back to work, but I believe that this behavior would scare a rider who was not prepared to sit it and then put him back to work. Unfortunately, I only have time to ride him 2, maybe 3, times a week as he is not my top priority horse. When he was in consistant work with me before he went to his Junior rider, he did not display this behavior. He currently is reasonably fit and is hacking, jumping and doing some dressage work. Additionally, he has gone out xc schooling twice this year and did not bat an eye at anything as he is well experienced.

    If you are interested in him, please contact me and tell me what you want to do with him and I will tell you more about him.

    More Info

    He would be very happy as a dressage horse as well. He does have nice gaits and never scores below 7 on the Collective Marks for Gaits and is the only horse I have ever scored a 9 on a movement with (trot work in the Novice tests). He knows his basic lateral work, i.e. shoulder-in, haunches-in, leg yield, turn on haunches at walk. He also goes forward and comes back easily for trot and canter lengthenings.

    While he will do an automatic lead change on course if you just change direction, he will also hold a counter canter if asked and will do a flying change on a straight line if asked.

      hi there,

      Would you let him go to ma? What is the extent of his joint maintenance? If you have photo and video that'd be great.


      • Original Poster

        I would consider letting him go to MA for the right situation bu I really would prefer him to be closer so that I could check on him to make sure that he is doing well in new situation.

        He has his hocks injected annually and is maintained on a monthly shot of Adequan or a good quality daily oral joint supplement.

        Please PM me your email address for photos.
