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 Reg AQHA buckskin 8 yr old mare

    I am looking for a forever home for a 8 yr old 14.2 AQHA buckskin mare.
    She is handled everyday and has had tack but never finished. I know I should have done something but I have had a very bad 4 yrs in my life due to the economy. I have contracted everyone I know, farrier vet rescues etc but there is no one.
    I have very old horses that need to be cared for and with only part time jobs that come and go it has been difficult to say the least. I just can't put down my old ones just because. So I am trying to find a home for her. There is absolutely nothing wrong with her. She is a doll to handle, very fancy. I guess she is on the small side but she is breed to be a reining/cow prospect. I purchased her as a PMU foal. She will go with her papers and contract that she will have a forever home. I hate to be picky but I have heard horrible stories of free horses going to slaughter. Please pass this on.

        supposed to put location in title

          Where is she located, and is she suitable as a husband horse? I have a friend who is looking for something quiet for her husband, would only be used for light riding for a timid rider. I can put the miles on her, but quiet is a must for him. Her horses stay with her for life - she currently has 2 senior mares that she bred, a rescue Standardbred gelding and 2 mini donkeys.

                Like I said, I can put the miles on her if her temperament is suited to becoming a husband horse.

                  I am sorry I didn't know my post was up yet. I am located in Hardwick NJ
                  Her name is Fancy Page http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/fancy+page
                  She is registered and is eligible for Naeric programs. She is very quiet. Handled everyday she goes out and is stalled at night. I do have a picture of her taken two weeks ago I have no idea how to link it to this post. Sorry.

                      I am in Hardwick NJ. She is unbroke. She will need miles. I can honestly tell you she is a quiet easy horse to deal with. She is not spooky at all.

                        Ahhhh it figures. I used to live in Hamburg, NJ. My bff lives in Hardwick. I'm in southwest VA now though. Not sure when I'd be coming to NJ again.

                          Don't apologize for being picky and be sure you have an enforceable contract. You are giving away a nice horse. You and she deserve to be protected.

                            Need to find her a home asap. Please!!!!

                              I sent a message to Alibhai's Alibar which is her screen name on COTH. She is a professional photographer who routinely photographs the horses at a kill auction in NJ. She has quite a few rescue contacts so hope she can help. You should probably reach out to her too. You can look up members by going to the member list, she is around page 17 in the As. Blessings to you and hold on!

                                Thank you for reaching out to me, Calamber.

                                hardwick, if it would help, I can try to drive up and take pictures of your mare to help network her (free of charge). I'll send you a message with my phone number.

                                        Hopefully the horse was placed. She is in a crisis, so imagine that answering back if the horse is placed is not high on the list. I hope everything is okay. You can send a message to Sarah though, she is very prompt and helpful!
