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 Lease-York,PA 9yr Old Tb, Sound and Ready to compete !!!

    After many months of going back and forth over this I have finally decided to offer my horse up for Free Lease. I will start with a 6mth lease to be Re-evaluated at that time, If all parties are happy we can continue for another 6mths.


    - 9yr Tb
    - Solid Chestnut
    - Gelding
    - 16.3
    - Up to date on Farrier, worming, shots etc.
    - Inter. to Adv. riders only please

    Has competed BN and is always in the ribbons, Ready for N and with the right program could go T in the near future. Jumps 3'3 courses easily, Dressage scores in the low 30's ( last test was a 31.5 ). I want him to go to a home who is interested in competing and pursuing eventing. The only reason I am offering this is because financially I cannot afford to show/lesson as much as this guy needs. Hes a wonderful horse when hes in a program, But needs to be in a solid program...all the time. With winter fast approaching ( and a grass ring ) I am financially unable to pay for the weekly lessons we will need to keep going.

    I am reserving the right to at any time bring him home. This will only happen if I feel the care is not up to par. You will be responsible for all day to day care ( vet,farrier,supplements,shots,worming,lessons etc.) He needs to stay within 2 hours of York,PA

    PM me on here or you may E-Mail me at desireemartin82@yahoo.com

    Thanks so Much !

    I am hoping my picture link will work, If not please let me know and I will attempt to fix them !! Oh and no rider critiques please !!! These pictures were all taken from about 2 months off the track to present, and really they don't him any justice but for now they are what I have.


    or you may try this link as well

    Bumping for the Friday slackers and hopefully the weekend crowd as well.

    He has been hound exercising and was wonderful. Loads,ties,clips, stands for farrier etc etc etc....

    I am also going to add, I am looking for a long term lease but after the inital 6 months we can evaluate how we both think the situation is working. I am looking for occasional updates ( heck I would probably even be your groom at events !! ) If at anytime you feel hes not working out or your situation changes he can always come back to me.

    The only reason I am doing this is because I know hes a nice horse and with the proper management/sched./facilites I know he can be much more than what I am capable of giving him. If the perfect home is found Im sure something can be worked out as far as ownership. I just want to see him brought to his full potential and I have realized I cannot give him this.

    I know some of my wording may sound confusing, I have no intention of "taking him back on a whim", Im just want him to have a good life and want to make sure that in a long term situation he is happy and you are happy.

      Hello There,

      I am no more then 2.5 hours from York and hope you'll consider me even though I'm farther then you'd like to send him.
      I have a very nice farm slightly north of the pocono mountains in pennsylvania, we have 17 stalls, 2 barns, an indoor, and 2 outdoor rings. I previously competed my last horse to the Prelim. level and qualified him for his first 1*...have been eventing for 5 years, 12 years in the hunters, 6 year dressage back ground and my current position involves breaking young horses for the hunter world and importing them from europe. I sold my last horse that I called my own and not a sales horse in May and since then have dearly missed calling a horse my own and being able to dote on one. I was looking for something that I could event and move up the levels if he had the potential.
      Please contact me if you are interested.
      Thanks, Samantha

              I have gotten back to everyone ( I believe ) If I havent returned your PM/Email please let me know.

              Here is his Bloodlines if anyone is interested..


              I am also going to disclose that he suffers from anydrosis ( Lack of Sweating ) this really doesnt effect him in anyway as long as you are aware of it. Im careful about when I ride in July and August and keep him on "Let M Sweat" which worked wonders on him this year. As long as it is managed properly it really isnt an issue, I just want to let everyone know.

              Thanks !

                  How tall are you? How does he take up your leg? I have a friend looking for a horse to really fit her (nearly 6 feet tall and all leg), and she is a lovely calm thoughtful rider.

                    He is 16'3 but refined, Def. not of the "big boned" variety I am 5'5 and long legged as well, It really never hurts to try if she is interested.

                    Hes still looking for a home as of now, but have 4 people coming this week to take a look.. Our weather has just been horrible !!

                        Bumping to attach a video link.


                        Almost all of the video was lost so he pieced together the still shots. Unfortunate really but I think it turned out Ok for what he had to work with...

                        Also, He is not ummm "horse savvy" so he used almost every picture he had on his flash from that day... so it does contain the good, the bad and the ugly but hey he did it and thats all that counts !!!!!!!!

                          Very nice horse!!! Wish I had time/money to have 2!! Best of luck finding a spot for him.

                            I had given up with the hard winter we had and thought it would be easier to just wait it out until spring, not many want another mouth to feed in winter

                            He is back to work, Have not had a chance to do any ring/flat work but have been doing lots of hill x-c to tone back up. Hes ready to find a great home.

                            My riding partner and BO is expecting, so with the limited field trips we were able to do, have now become "0". This puts a wrench in things obviously. He really would do well with someone who shows/clinics often.
