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 to good home 12 yo TB mare in MA *pics added*

    I have a lovely 12 year old, 16 hand, SOUND thoroughbred mare in need of a new home as the lease she is in right now is not working out. She has 3 beautiful gaits, knows lateral work, has good ground manners, and is a pleasure to ride. She does need a confident intermediate rider and would be best if she was ridden a couple times a week. I've used her as a lesson horse, and she was great for that. She has also been a broodmare and had 4 beautiful babies by the AQHA stud Indian Artifacts. She is currently located in Weare NH, but will be moving back to Plymouth area MA in 2 weeks. Free to good home, or available for free long term lease. Please e-mail me at UFTemptation@AOL.com for pictures

        Nice mare

        I will ask around. She looks great. Can she be ridden more than a few times a week or will she get hot? Most people I know ride almost everyday. No heavy lifting, but they like to ride. Does she jump at all? Just small fences, no showing.

          She can be ridden every day, she'd absolutely LOVE that. She loves to work, I just don't have the time or the money for her right now She can jump, she's a bit green over fences but she's honest and she's jumped anything we've put in front of her. She has been ridden on some trails (not lately though) and jumped over logs on trails as well. She's a really nice girl and has the potential to do a lot. She just needs a home where she can work, and she doesn't have that with me anymore

            by: Kimberly S. Brown, Editor
            November 01 2008, Article # 13006

            Bloodhorse.com and TheHorse.com are teaming up to bring Thoroughbreds
            in need of homes to the attention of hundreds of thousands of horse
            owners across the United States. Creating this database was the
            brainchild of Antony Beck of Gainesway Farm.

            With the Thoroughbred Adoption Services, any registered Thoroughbred,
            of any age, is eligible to be placed on this database of FREE horses.
            The database will be housed on TheHorse.com and will be promoted in
            the Thoroughbred industry by The Blood-Horse and Bloodhorse.com and
            in the pleasure horse and sport horse industries by The Horse and
            TheHorse.com.

                re: TB mare

                I am very interested, have been looking for a horse to work with on my own dressage training and one that I can ride on the trails. I need to check out trailering if it is okay with you that she comes to the Virginia Beach, Va area. We may not be staying here, we may be moving to Washington State in the spring but she would come with us. Does she have JC papers and if so, what is her registered name?

                  If you need help finding a transporter i can recommend one. I had my colt shipped to Charlottesville, Va from MA and they did a fantastic job! Really nice people! PM if you're interested.

                    Very pretty girl!

                    Bump for this nice looking horse. Is she still available? How spooky is she? Gets along with others? Easy/hard keeper? Needs shoes? Comfy to sit or?

                    I hope she has found a great home!
                    Horses should be trained in such a way that they not only love their riders, but look forward to the time they are with them.

                            I am so relieved to hear she has found a good home. She was really pulling at my heartstrings

                              Just would have been a bit more thoughtful of the person who initiated the post if they would have at least replied to the people who inquired. I even went so far as to make initial inquiries for shipping to see about costs.

                                I'm sorry I missed getting back to a few people. I've been sick and trying to handle multiple dr appointments, work, and many other things. I've been doing my best, but sometimes that just doesn't seem to be good enough.
