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!

  • 3 year old APHA mare in GA FTGH

    3 year old registered APHA mare. Mostly white with some chestnut. Very quiet, was a rescue from an abusive situation. The old owners were going to shoot her because according to them, she tried to kick the wife. She was very standoffish and jumpy around people when she arrived, so not sure if she did try to kick, what the situation was. She has been at my farm 3 weeks and has not made any attempt to kick or bite. No vices, loads, ties, stands very well for vet and farrier. Has a crooked front foot the vet states is from a previous injury. She is sound on and off, will never make a consisitant riding horse. Naturally very slow legged, would probably produce some nice WP foals. Not at all spooky, sacked her out and tacked her up and she had no issues, just continued to follow me around the round pen, but she is not yet broke to ride. She is approx 15.1hh. pic

    I would take her if any Coth friends could help get her to or as close to North Dakota as possible

      Would her foot hinder her if she was used as a lesson horse? I'm located in GA and can possibly take this horse. Thank you.

        My vet feels that as long as she is trimmed consistantly (and correctly) she should remain sound for most levels of flat riding. With training she would make an excellent lesson horse, naturally very easy going and has not spooked since she got here. Had some trust issues as far as letting us grab her in the field, etc, when she arrived but has gotten over them completely with us. Not to say she may not do the same thing for new people, hard to guess since it is just us here. But she LOVES to be loved on which seems to help her overcome her shyness. But obviously she is 3 and not broke, so there would be a bit of work involved to get her ready for lessons. Of course if she does not work out you would be welcome to bring her back to me, no questions asked.

                  Bump. Let me ad that I do not feel after having this mare around a bit longer, that she would be appropriate for heavy work, so no trail strings or lesson barns unfortunately. Probably best for light riding, has a great head on her shoulders and is very correct, so may make a good broodmare for the right farm.

                          Thank you!! I really like her a lot, she really is well built, and has a terrific mind. Worst case, she can come with me to VA and the hunt will be on for a well bred WP paint stud. But I really would prefer finding her a home with someone that could give her more 1 on 1 time, as she is very affectionate once she gets to know you.

                              She is papered, and they will transfer with her. Here is a link to her pedigree.

                                Just wanted to say I hope you find her a good home!

                                Also, since she does have Impressive in her pedigree, I did some searching and she would be N/N for HYPP as IMPRESSIVES DEUCE is N/N (Her only trace to impressive)

                                I wanted to say that as some people will see Impressive and balk. She does not carry the HYPP gene and is perfectly safe in that regard.

                                To bad she is not closer as I would take her, but no time off to go get her and no extra $$ for a hauler..... sigh.... so close yet so far! lol

                                      She is very adorable, and I like how she is put together. I don't have the ability to haul at this time or $$ for shipping, and hubby would probably shot me as I already have a BS paint greenie that needs more time. I love her, though!

                                        Talk to your husband, we will be going up I-95 for our move from GA to VA, so the haul may be less then you think LOL.
