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!

  • gorgeous TB gelding looking for loving home

    as either a companion horse or light riding...5 yrs, 16.1 and very flashy... I got Pizzazz from Penn National last fall with a fractured cannon...this horse has had xrays and vets think he will come around 100% but for now no guarantees...he will walk trot canter under saddle and goes on lunge and in side reins...awesome sweet horse...and gorgeous!! Did I forget that part? Lol...I dont feel right selling him lame and really just want him to have an awesome forever home with someone to pamper him...Does anyone have a place for Pizzazz??
  • Original Poster

    no one is interested

    Really wishing I could find a home for this boy...or even a free lease...I really dont have the time for him...and he is soooo sweet!! I think hed be perfect for a patient dedicated teen who cant really afford to buy an expensive horse but is willing to take the time on this one...he will come sound!! I can take him back if it doesnt work out!!

      Perhaps it would hlep if you posted where you are located, and how far you are willing to let him go. Also what is the estimated timeline for returning to soudness, level of riding he can do now, etc.


      • Original Poster

        Horse is located in Egg Harbor NJ... I am not opposed to a long distance situation as long as there are references, and I would like a contract that if he cant be kept for any reason that I am notified he be returned to me... The vets thought his recovery would be about a year and his injury was in november of 2006...He is about 85-90% with good days and bad...I have gotten on and ridden w/t/c...and he is lightly lunged in side reins at walk and trot...Im honestly not gonna promise anything which is why hes being offered for companion or light riding but if brought back slowly and correctly he will be an amazing athlete... I would take it easy through the winter and focus on basics and it'll probably be a little longer before he can jump...but next spring he could do some dressage shows or something...like I said no guaruntees...hope this helps!!!

            Sorry, I did not mean I was interested myself (too far!) but I sure hope you find a good home for him, he is gorgeous!

              A Home for Pizzazz


              I have been out of riding for some time now.... a bit rusty. I would be able to give him plenty of rest through-out the winter , but was wondering if I might be able to do some light riding with him. Also ...I have never had a horse with sort of injury & was wondering how often (at this point in his recovery) should he be vet checked to see that progress is going smoothly? He is a beautiful horse & would like to perhaps be considered for his new home. I am located in Lexington KY....but he would be in Danville KY with my mother.

              Thank You & have nice day,

              'In Hounds We Trust'

                thanks lori!!

                He could do some light riding and would probably love trails...Ive done walk and trot work in the ring and on a lunge and just give him lots of breaks...he will canter nicely under saddle with some encouragement but I wouldnt recommend it at this point...He is turned out with my other horse and they gallop around and play all day long. Pizzazz was very unhappy being cooped up on stall rest and they vets agreed turning him out would be much more beneficial to him mentally even if the healing takes a litte longer...as far as vet checks are concerned he'll probably need a set of xrays taken to see his progress and probably one down the road a little...the fracture was not very big and one vet suggested that if I were in a hurry for him to heal, we could use electromagnetic therapy but she didnt think it'd be necessary...What about the distance?? Kentucky is far...would you be able to transport him??


                • #9

                  I was thinking he would like to be outside a lot. Most horses are that way He would be in only in the nastiest of weather. As far as riding...walking & troting are fine. As far as distance I am not sure how far I am away from you. But I can find out if you give me the local you are in.

                      Distance away from Egg Harbor.


                      I looked up the general driving directions from Lexington to Egg Harbor. It says about 11 hours. I have no problem with the distance if you don't... also if Pizzazz could make the trip in comfort.

                        I have no problem with the distance and yes you are right...Pizzazz loves to be outside running around. Even when hes in his stall he just stands gazing out his window Would you be trailering him yourself or hiring a transporter? He ships like a dream. Bringing him home was 2 1/2 hours and he was awesome. Do you have any references and/or photos of where he would live? Im excited!! This might be a match!!


                        • Original Poster


                          I just emailed you back Let me know what you think!!


                          • #14
                            I could have some pics & a vet reference soon. Since I live in Lexington my mom will be able to do this for me. We are two peas in a pod so to speak. She was the "horse show mom" when I was younger!!! Also what-ever contracts you wish to have drawn up for the match with Pizzazz be no problem. My mother & I would be the ones to come to pick him up personaly.
