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!

  • One more try for the yearlings.

    I have two youngsters here. One is a yearling QH/welsh pony. The other is a coming 2 yr. old Arab/Friesian. They came here completely untouched. Today, they are halter broke, they lead fairly well, they tie, they load, and you can farrier them. The younger one is still a bit shy in the back feet but not mean at all. Very very smart little thing. These two were adopted after all the work I put in, and then suddenly, the lady brings them back and says she is not going to be able to afford them after all. Now, three weeks later, she wants to adopt them again??????????????????????plus another one. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

    Well, these two girls have got to get a home. They are in the blind kids pen which is not acceptable for youngsters. I cant turn them out to pasture with the big herd or there training may be for naught.

    These two girls simply need a home. They are available for $150 each which will simply cover there vet and coggins fees. If you are looking for a project, these girls are the way to go. The older girl has just started walking on a lunge line but.................I have put in all the time and money I can afford. hahaha. Young horses just dont fit in here I am afraid.
    Our horses are not seen as the old and disabled they may have become, but rather as the mighty steeds they once believed themselves to be.

                  LongLeaf, You make me laugh. My thoughts have changed from I want a trained horse already aged to perfection....(ie bad vices and nasty habits) to raising and training our own from the ground up. My perfectly trained horse nearly killed me...got rid of him and wound up with an untouched 2 yo mushtang. He is my primary horse now....You figure it out.

                  I am raising a baby for us to be a smooth gaited trail horse. We raised a mustang for hubby who is now on trail lightly as a 4.5 yo....

                  Of course you NEED a baby to start.......hahahhahahahhahahah!!!!!!!!!

                  You go girl....

                  I did not neeed a paso.....Yeah right....he is awesome...I can't thank SKA enough as he has almost no vices...he has quirks, but we are working together...he is awesome....I love horses from ska...LOLOLOL.
                  Life is too short to argue with a mare! Just don't engage! It is much easier that way!

                  Have fun, be safe, and let the mare think it is her idea!

                    This little arab Friesian is going to be a great great girl. She loves humans, loves handling and has no vices. Someone must want this gal. And the pony, well she is really smart. Will be a great lesson horse yet.

                                      Do you know what size little Blossom might top out at, Lori?

                                      P.S. Pleasure meeting you yesterday, and your store is ADDICTING! We'll have to make weekend trips.

                                        Well Pearly girly went home with Saddlgirl this morning. They drove all night to get her and headed right out. She was a trooper, loaded right up like a good girl. They wont be disappointed in there new friend.

                                        Hydrophile, it was wonderful not only too meet you but have you shop till you drop in the store as well as bring us your donations. Thankyou so very very much. Its rather a unique store isnt it, a bit of everything and anything and you can find the most amazing treasures in there from all over the US. What did you think of that cribbing collar hahahah. Kept only for ornament and entertainment now. It wont be sold LOL.

                                        I think Blossom will top out at 13 -13.1 She is not very tall but has a good sized rump LOL. Of all the yearlings here, she is actually my favorite. The least handled but the most intelligent. She is the shyest due to lack of handling but shows the least resistance as well. Hopefully she will get herself a new home for the holidays.
