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!

  • 2 older TB geldings, preferable to same home, in So. Cal.

    One 23 year old dark brown thoroughbred and one 17 year old grey/white thoroughbred free to good home. They were both very successful jumpers in their day, and are looking for their forever final home. They have great ground manners and are still rideable and sound. They have not been ridden consistently for about 1 1/2 years. Life has made it not possible to spend as much time with these lovable guys as they deserve. No major medical issues and again they are completely sound. They are free due to their lack of consistent work. A good home is a must!! If the perfect home is found, shipping can be arranged at owner's expense. But must meet people in person.

              bump . . . . plus would like to add that due to recent information, I would like to place them somewhere in CA.

              Both these horses are schoolmasters, especially the younger one. Anyone looking to gain some confidence and easy time in the saddle can greatly benefit from these guys. Plus they are total lovers!!!

                  looking in Missouri

                  I would take your guys in a heartbeat however I am in Missouri. I have been looking for some time for a companion horse/horses that are still sound enough for light riding and are geldings for my 2 and 6 yo daughters. Also for company to my 7 year old grade mare that gets lonely out in the pasture by herself sometimes you can contact me at mohorseman77@yahoo.com if we could possibly work something out

                    Check Adopters Carefully

                    Not to go off topic,MOhorseman31,but,in my many years of experience,I wouldn't choose former Tb jumpers as first mounts for 2 and 6 year old girls!My kids started on ponies and moved up to full sized horses around age 10-somehow it seems safer-you know,the ground is a LOT closer when a little one tumbles off their steed.I also don't seem to think the 2 in foal broodmares are great mounts either,nor is the weanling colt.Or those are just to be companions??Maybe I got up on the wrong side of the bed today,but asking about 6 horses-soon to be 8,when foals are born,are a LOT of horses to take on,in a very short space of time.....JMHO

                      I had the same red flag feeling- and I checked craigslist and equine site to see if perhaps there was some strange situation that MO has a shortage of cheap to free horses- and alas there seems to be a surplus. Perhaps MOhorseman31 is legitimately trying to help out horses in FL when he could get the same in MO- but I am skeptical when people join this forum and post on multiple ads for rehoming--something smells rotten about that...

                        Yes, and he doesn't seem consistant in what he's replying to. He inquired about the QH weanling too. Possible hoarder/dealer alert. And if he's a horse trainer and a farrier, he should have pretty substantial leads on horses in his own area that are in need. He says he needs a companion for his single horse but can't afford to spend too much, but is going to ship horses from FL, TX or CA? Hmmmm.....

                          Nice catch here by COTH giveaway readers

                          OP - have you had any luck yet in finding a good home for these two? I'm in southern CA, have a small non profit devoted to helping TBs find homes, and I don't know that it would help, but I could list your horses on my website as a courtesy and do some networking to try to help you place them. Like I say -I don't know that it will help; it's a very tough market out there and not getting any easier.

                            Still interested

                            Hi I replied awhile back about being able to take one of your guys. I'm still horseless and right now considering a lease on a horse but it would be nice to have my own. I am looking to do dressage with my new partner. I live in the central valley.
