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!

Dressage type show mare, 1/2 arab, triple-registered in N Florida

  • Dressage type show mare, 1/2 arab, triple-registered in N Florida

    I have a triple-registered (1/2 arab, 1/2 saddlebred, National Showhorse) mare available for giveaway to the right home. She was born in 1995 and I have owned her since she was six. She has lifetime USEF and USDF numbers and is microchipped.

    Holly is 15.2 hh, bright bay with RH stocking and star. She has shown successfully through 1st level dressage. She is sound, no medical issues, no real vices. She does pace the fenceline right before feeding time and does not like other horses "in her face" right outside her stall but other than those no other "vices". She does turn out fine with other horses. She has had one foal and that foal is now 4 and I still own her.

    She loads, clips without sedation, and loves to be groomed. She is currently barefoot and has excellent feet (my farrier loves her feet). She has been shoed in the past when she was a boarding facility and we were showing and using her alot but has been barefoot for the last 3-4 years now.

    My girls are no longer riding her because they have NO interest in dressage and Holly has been basically a pasture ornament for the past 3-4 years. She is just too nice to be stuck in my pastures without a job -- she is the only dressage type horse we have and my girls have plenty of others to ride so they have no interest in her. I had her listed for sale but I really do not want to lower her price to point that I would be "dumping her" and I don't want to send her to a trainer to put the work back on her to justify a higher price. I want her to go to a good home who would appreciate her so I am offering her free to an approved home. I really would like to see her go to someone who would put her back into the dressage ring showing.

    She is suitable for dressage and trail riding. She is not suitable for hunter-jumper because she HATES it not because of any soundness issues. She like dressage and pleasure riding. She will require some work and attention to get her back into shape (ie.riding and showing) as she simply has not been doing anything but "beautifying" my pastures for the last several years. She is a beautiful, striking mare and anyone who sees her comments on how lovely she is. When she was being shown, judges always comment how lovely her movement is -- she is very lovely presented under saddle.

    Please visit this link for pictures and if you are interested in her please PM me.

    Holly is located near St. Augustine, Florida.

    I'm not looking for another dressage horse, but I looked at Holly's page because she's half ASB. She really is lovely! Someone is going to get quite a nice horse I had a show pleasure gelding by Forty Second Street ERB, and he was fabulous. Very kind and had a good work ethic. Someone could have a LOT of fun with this mare!

    You might also want to list her on extendedtrot.com (the classified site for trot.org, a Saddlebred BB) and on Modern-Saddlebred.com You can place free ads on both of those sites, and you will have a lot of ASB folks looking. More and more people are getting interested in ASBs and ASB crosses for dressage.

    Good luck!

      Thank so much for the info. She really is a very nice horse and the only reason I am listing her for free is to try and make sure she goes to a good home. With the economy the way it is, I would need to put her back into work in order to ask the price that would insure a good "sale" for her. Sooo I would rather give her away to a good home. She can stay with me until she does get a good home.

              I have known the poster MsDejaVu for several years, she puts most of us horsey owners to shame. Please feel free to ask her long time Vet, farrier and other boarders about her commitment to her animals.... If you want a fabulous forever home for your mare, she would be it!

                        I live outside of Griffin, GA and am starting a riding program for underprivileged youth. If you think Holly might be a good prospect for our program, I'd like to come see her. I am working with a trainer who has worked in a youth rehabilitation program previously and this program is our dream for my farm. Please contact me to let me know what you think. Thank you.
