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!

  • Leased: NC - 13 y/o Chestnut w/Chrome QH Mare - Pictures

    I bought this mare a year ago for my daughter as a hunter over fences. Since that time this girl has started showing some mild signs of sidebone (ringbone) on her right fore. On the flat she is sound and I want to keep her that way for as long as possible. She is beautifully trained, well mannered, kind, and wonderful. She will do anything you ask and is an exceptional babysitter to beginners. Rarely spooks and when she does it's very slight. With a more advanced rider she can become quite forward and loves to canter. I want her to go to a home that will let her do easy trail rides and have fun with her. She needs to be on fairly soft ground. No road riding. She has shoes with pads on the front feet and gets a daily joint supplement. Other than that she is healthy, current on everything, and sound. Fairly easy saddle fit. Easy, easy keeper. Needs to be in home with lots of turnout and some horse friends.

    Videos. These are a year old but still very accurate of mare's movement/temperment/submission. However I do not want this mare jumped except on rare occasion.

    Send me an email telling me what you would like this horse for and where she would be kept. I would like to keep her fairly close but am open to anyone provided they can give her a very good home. References required. Will be checked. This girl deserves a terrific home. She'll make someone very happy.

      This is a really nice mare! I used to own her and she has shown in QH shows with points and was a state 4-H champion a few years ago. She has a great disposition and deserves a good home! When I got her she had been taken bad care of and was VERY thin. GOt her back in shape and NCSue bought her for her daughter. It is unfortunate that now she cannot be jumped but she has lots to offer!!!!

          Just a few questions about this mare as I may know of a home for her. Does she need to be stalled or can she be pastured with access to a run-in shed? Does she do well with other horses? Also, what type of shoeing does she specifically need and the average cost. I know of a great situation with 5 kids who ride on their 100 acre farm, trails only. The horses are pasture pets that are not used that much, and the kids love to bareback ride and just have low key fun with them. Please pm me if you think this might work. Located in NC.

            She'd do fine with a run-in provided they aren't in a super wet area of NC. With those white legs she does pick up fungus on occasion if in wet fields and she's not a horse that can go barefoot. My other concern is that she has always been in a structured program and seems to do much better with a regular schedule than letting her just run out to pasture and get ridden every so often.

            Does she do well with other horses?

            Yes. She is out with at least one other and usually with a group of 5 ranging in age from 30 to 5. Never gets aggressive or pushy. She falls middle of the group in heir hierachy. However I always bring horses into their stalls for feeding. She does love her food.


            Also, what type of shoeing does she specifically need and the average cost.


            She wears regular steel shoes on the front with a 1 degree pad on the right front. Farrier does not recommend she go barefoot since she has weak sidewalls -- they are getting stronger -- and she bruises badly. I pay approximately $65 every 5-6 weeks. Keep in mind that farrier fees can be different.


            I know of a great situation with 5 kids who ride on their 100 acre farm, trails only. The horses are pasture pets that are not used that much, and the kids love to bareback ride and just have low key fun with them.


            Jesse loves kids and trails. But she's not a mare that you can yell at or pull around by her mouth. So the kids, being kids, will need some supervision. For that kind of situation I usually recommend an older gelding. I'm really not sure how she'd work out especially since I don't have a large group of younger children anymore.


            Please pm me if you think this might work. Locate in NC.
            I will send you a PM. Thanks.

              NCSue,

              Is Michigan too far away? I'm tentatively looking for my neighbor. She's a 9 year old girl that would LOVE her own pony/horse. She's currently riding one of mine and the horse would be staying with me until (if? ever?) they get their own place organized. The parents don't have the financial ability to buy one and so basically it would be "her" horse but I would have full responsibility for the financial upkeep.

              My husband is a farrier, so shoeing isn't an issue. We might be an ideal fit for her, but it is quite a ways away. Drop me a PM if you think it might be OK, otherwise, no hard feelings. :-)

              Thanks and I hope you find a good home for her.

                Regent Lion. Sent you a PM. While I would ideally like to keep this mare close by I am willing to consider any good home.

                      Pictures are also accessible on photobucket. The longeing video is new. Teen daughter longeing and friend playing with new camera so not the best quality but it does show her movement. Jezze can be ridden in either an english or western saddle.
