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 Thoroughbred horses

    I am trying to find homes for thoroughbreds horses off the race track. They have been raced at Penn National Race Course in Grantville, Pa. They will be given to GOOD HOMES ONLY and are not to be raced. One of them is a 2 year old colt he is sound and ran 5 times he won one race but just isnt fast enough to keep racing. The second is a 2 year old black filly with a white blaze she ran 10 times and won one race and is a total sweetheart to be around. She just dosent have alot of ability to race. She is also sound. The third is an 8 year old gelding with alot of class that deserves a good home. He has won 5 races and won over $150,000. He is very nice to be around. He has an old bow on each leg that dosent bother him now but if he would continue to race it would hinder his ability to run. He won his last start and has been turned out since 11-29-09. He had the bows before I got him and they were set, the last time he ran he pulled som lesions but was sound a week after his race. He would be able to be a trail horse or a family pet. He is very nice to be around. I also have a 5 year old stud that has a large bow. he had the bow when I got him and he raced a few times and won but now he needs a little rest. He would need the winter off then he could be a trail horse. If you have any intrest in these horses please let me know, or if you are looking for a perticular type of horse please tell me because I have alot of horses that I try to find good homes for and if I don't have exactly what you are looking for now I probably will in the future. I only want these horses to go to GOOD homes. You will be in charge of getting the horses shipped. They are near Penn National Race Course in Grantville, Pa.

    Welcome! Perhaps posting their pedigrees and/or photos might get pique some interest.

    Good luck!
    Experience is what you get, when you didn't get what you wanted.

      Thanks! I didnt know we could post pictures on this site, I'm new to this chronicle. Anyway the 2 year old colt is by Smarty Jones and the 2 year old filly is by Freud. I will figure out how to post pictures and get them on the site, I just need to find good homes for these horses.

        Just post a bunch of pictures to Webshots.com and then copy and paste the link to the album. I imagine you will get a home for the two babies very quickly. Be sure to take nice conformation pictures of them, similar to the ones one www.canterusa.org. You can also call the people at Canterusa.org and ask them to list them for you. They have a wonderful website and they are great to work with.

          You can also buy a premium membership for about 20$ or so, and post the pix right on your post.

          And list them in paragraphs, so they are easier to read.

            Also, so long as we're making suggestions . . . if you give their Jockey Club names & not just their sire's names, it would help some of us (although it will matter not at all to others).

                Jenn, did you take them? I made arrangements to go see them this weekend, emailed the owner to confirm, and haven't heard back yet...


                • #9
                  Yeah the vet is going to do HC's and my shipper is adding them to her pickup schedule next week. They're going to come be future event horses :-)

                  Owner is having a busy busy week apparently!

                      Did you see the 5 year old stud, do you know how he is bred? I asked the OP but did not hear back. A friend is looking for a TB to cross onto his QH mares.

                        Paintjumper, not ot hijack the thread, but so long as the original horses are placed - just wanted to point out a CANTER PA stallion --


                        I haven't seen him in person, but love his picture. I think if they stood him up a little better, you'd see a nice shoulder, too.

                        Also, he has some value as a regional TB stallion - his 1/2 brother (on his mother's side) won a Breeder's Cup race, which is HUGE, and his sire is also the sire of one of the top racehorses ever, Azeri. (As you can tell, I've thought about this one, but with 3 stallions now, we really don't need another!)

                        Anyhow, just mentioning a very reasonably priced TB stud prospect . . .

                              I wanted to thank everyone who replyed to my post about finding homes for these 4 horses. I found a home for the two two year olds in North Carolina. I also found a home for the 8 year old gelding in West Virginia. I am very happy to say that all 3 of them will get a great home. I still have the 5 year old stud available. He is 16.3 and georgous!! He is black with a white blaze and white stockings behind. He has an awesome body and he is correct. I will post pictures of him in the next day or two I have been super busy this week I take care of 80 horses and it's just been one of those weeks. Once again I want to thank everyone who replyed to my ad I am so happy I found three of them good homes. Like I said before I give horses away often when they can't race anymore so when I have some more I will post them on this forum. Thanks again and Happy New Year!!!

                                  May I ask the registered name of the stallion? I may know someone.
                                  Your dog may not be broken, but he still needs to be fixed.
