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!

  • Paso Fino Mare- Lexington, KY

    Anybody interested in a project Paso Fino? My dear wild and red-headed Sugar needs her own person through no fault of her own, but that of the humans in her life.

    My relationship of over 4 years has tanked and due to my job situation I really need to downsize my life a bit in order to keep a roof over my kids' heads and manage to hang onto my heart horse, Belle, whom I've had for over 5 years and have totally rehabbed and retrained. I am nearly to a degree in a field that is being hard hit by the economy and I can't find a good paying job right now, I work two part time jobs currently. I will probably have to pick up another if I don't find a decent paying full time job soon... which means even less time for the horses. Belle is fine sitting in a field, but Sugar still needs regular work (and she's not getting any from me right now in my state of mind *sigh*)

    Sugar needs more attention and she is very green at 9 years old due to her lack of any formal training, being a broodmare, and the starvation/neglect situation she came from last year. Sugar's rescue was documented on COTH last April in the thread " So we rescued a horse…caution politically incorrect references to in breeding…" Unfortunately it got purged in the COTH upgrades, but I do have it all in a document and would be happy to pass it on to her new owner as part of her history. After Sugar's rescue and 3 week initial rehab by her rescuer, she was a Giveaway here and I brought her home to finish getting her back in good weight and healthy. I had expected to finish out her training and get her on the trail and keep her as a horse to ride since my daughter has taken to Belle.

    I want her to go to a good home who is used to a hot PF as she can be silly and temperamental at times, she really is just a youngster in a 9 year old body! She just needs time, knowledge, and patience and is already a lot better than she was a year ago and that is with me barely working her at all.

    She is a super easy keeper who ideally needs a dry lot and well managed rations to keep her from going over the edge into laminitis. She is currently wearing a muzzle on a small lot for 12 hours overnight and comes in for a meal of soaked beet pulp and soaked hay for 12 hours during the day. This is keeping her weight off and the heat out of her feet.

    Sugar's registered name is "Amorosa de Agape" she is 9 this year and about 14hh. She is located in Lexington, KY, and is used to children, dogs, a busy barn area, and has been around goats for a short period of time. She can be led over tarps and ridden over ground poles and seems to be a bit interested in low jumps. Has a lovely corto, can get collected enough for a fino, and has a cute and fast canter. Don't know about the largo as I don't even know how to ask her for one.

    I would prefer a non-breeding home as there are already plenty of horses out there who need homes and I think Sugar will make a great trail horse someday with work I would also like to keep her within three hours drive of Lexington so if things don't work out, I can come get her. I would also love to be able to visit her if things go well in her new home.

    She is a give away with a good faith "comes back to me" contract with registration papers forthcoming after 6 months in her new home to make sure it will all work out.

    See her pics here:

    Please PM me or email me at spookhorse01@yahoo.com if you want more info or to come out and meet Sugar.

    Thanks, Shannon

    paso fino

    Oh I have a great friend that has been wanting a paso and they are wonderful with horses. I will pass this info along!
    To ride a horse is to borrow freedom.

      Did you find a home for Sugar yet? Try Asbury college, I believe the contact if Harold Rainwater, they take donations such as her. Also, the fellow that used to be president of Equestation Ministries International has pasos in he is in Shelbyville.

        BUMPING... Sugar is still looking for a home

        Don't want to do a college donation, Sugar needs one person to pay attention to her. I think part of her problem is that she probably never had a chance to bond with anyone.
