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!

  • Rehomed - Talented 10yo Selle Francais mare looking for a new rider

    Due to no fault of her own, I am looking to re-home my mare Panache. I simply do not have the time to ride her and she really does need to be in a program of consistent riding. She went back into a training program last fall but came up with a minor lameness. Time off and some rest and she's good as new, but does need to be brought back into work correctly to rebuild fitness. Panache goes best with a rider who has a soft hand and seat; one who can keep her actively engaged while working. I've never had an opportunity to take her around cross-country jumps but I think it would be right up her alley.

    Panache is a well schooled and brave mare with a big step and scope to spare. Panache is currently jumping around 2'6 courses with changes and can easily step up to 3' and better. Great opportunity for a young, motivated rider to move up the levels; definite talent for at least a childrens/adult jumper. Only reason she isn't showing right now is owner's lack of time. Shown locally in the Open and Jr/Am Hunters but would be very competitive as a jumper. Don't let her size fool you, she takes up a lot of leg, is very adjustable, and is well tuned on the flat... a lot like driving a sports car! Perfect ground manners - loads, ties, clips, bathes. A favorite of both vet and farrier.

    Panache is exceptionally well bred - her sire, Ilian de Taute (http://www.armstrongfarm.com/ilian.html), has competed through Grand Prix show jumping (shown by Aaron Vale) and Intermediate eventing. Shown by a 15 year old junior in the 1.35m jumpers during the 2012 WEF. His approved son, P.S. I Love You, is currently showing in the Hunter Derbies on the West Coast. Ilian is by the French Olympic jumper Narcos II (http://www.horseplanet.net/horses/horseinfo.asp?id=3794).

    Please PM me for additional information. Panache is located in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. New owner would be responsible for transportation and change of ownership fee with Canadian Sporthorse Association.

    Hey there. I'm not real good at navigating this site so email me please! I am in va and very interested in this mare. I have a selle francais competing currently and would love to know more about yours. Ponyshow123@gmail.com

      Forgot to include height: she is 15.2 but has a huge step, and as mentioned takes up your leg nicely. Most people don't realize how "small" she is until they get right up next to her.

      And updated link to sire: http://www.redbayonline.com/~da0043/ilian-de-taute/

                  Have a friend that is very interested in his mare.
                  Is she for sale or a 'Give Away?
                  Can provide immediate transportation for her. Husband & wife both have experience with Selle Francais, horses. Have imported in the past. I would need a direct contact e-mail or phone number so they may converse with you directly. Please PM me. Than you for your time.

                  I too have tried to PM you but box is full.

                      I just sent this to a friend who keeps her horses at my farm near Fair Hill, MD, just over the PA line. She has a young teen daughter who's a handy little rider and this would give her an opportunity to really get into the hunter shows which is what she's been wanting to do. She has a university equestrian team instructor who is very well respected and they take excellent care of their horses. I would trust them with mine. The child's Mom would like to inquire about your wonderful mare. She's been looking for a horse that could do hunter shows.

                              Thank you so much for all the PMs. I have several good leads and Panache will likely be going with one of those. If anything changes I will bump her back up.

                                Look at everyone jump on her! She's a cutie, I'm sure you'll do your homework and with all the offers she'll end up in a great home! Lucky I'm on the west coast or I would be knocking on your door too! Lol
