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!

    Okay... This is a NICE mare. A friend gave me her description. Yes. Those photos are Diva. She needs an intermediate level rider, but what a fun horse for the right person..... anyone come to mind???

    Thanks everyone...please cross post.

    Bev


    Gotta find a place for Diva to go asap - - just got in for lunch-Barn owner left me a message, they want to take her to Camelot this week or next, but she IS afraid of the pnuemonia and EHV1 outbreaks, I may play them up when I call her back, tell her to wait another week or two, if they can. The parents are really pushing to dump this mare. . .

    This is too nice a horse to have to go thru the auction ---- once she's there she'll need QT, the whole 9 yards . . . .and could get hurt too.
    Any Ideas Ladies??????? I could probably put her up at a neighbor's VERY TEMPORARILY if she has to get out now - - IF there was a home lined up. I just can't intake another one at this point, especially another mare -- no room at the inn, two stallions --even once Dublin gets his 'brain surgery' on Thurs, he'll still be thinking "studly" thoughts for another 30 days. . ..


    Diva is a 16 year old Thoroughbred mare that stands 16hh and has done it all! Free to Good Home
    Sadly owner must place her in a good home where she will be taken good care of and used to her full potential.
    Diva has been in a lesson program ridden English. She can jump and will jump anything put in front of her, great on trail rides, has participated in a Mounted Drill Team and has been successfully shown.
    She does best with a turn out situation v.s. being stall kept. She had a slight stifle problem, but this does not bother her with turnout and freedom of movement.
    Diva can do some dressage too. She moves with easy gaits and you’d love her canter! She is up-to-date on all her shots, farrier work and teeth floating.
    If you are looking for a nice horse for your lesson program, or just want to ride a Thoroughbred that is excellent under saddle – please check her out or pass along the word!
    Call Amanda at 732 688-5397.
    Diva is located at Free Spirit Farm, located in Freehold, N.J.

      No clue, just copied and pasted the email and their contact info is there. You see what I see but it seems that there isn't anything really wrong with this mare, just the owner. You surely know how many wacky owners there are.

        mare

        Sure wish she was closer to TN! It's hard to find horses with drill team experience ;( Surely a horse with all that experience will find a great home.
        To ride a horse is to borrow freedom.

            I see Diva mentioned in a few places, we sure can't allow this mare to end up at the auction. She has so much to offer someone. Nice horses end up at auctions all the time. One trainer said that there's a reason these horses end up at New Holland and with that kind of mentality she will miss out on many great horses that are owned by dumb or bad people who don't appreciate what they really have.

              I would so love just such a mare. The whole shipping stuff is what kills me.

                If someone really wanted this horse there are people that offer low rates for rescues, I don't know them though. We sure don't want this sweet mare going to Camelot auction in NJ. It sounds like she'd be worth the cost of shipping though.

                  There's a Yahoo group called Hitch Hiking Horses and haulers will often post their schedules as well as offer fill rates. It is worth looking into if you are really interested in this mare!

                        Who are you asking? I don't know anything about this horse, I posted that. I have already posted that this was just copied and pasted and if you want to know about this horse you need to contact someone through the email addresses. She sounds like a great horse but I have never seen her, just reading the message like you and wanted to help spread the word so she could find a good home and some lucky person would get a great horse for free.

                          Here are her pictures. http://forums.delphiforums.com/alexb...s/?msg=46741.1 This may be the same mare. It sounds like she only has a few days left.

                            Unfortunately, yes I believe this is the same mare given the description. Great when in work, can be a handful when left out in the field. If I remember, she's got a great pedigree too. I'd be concerned about jumping her more than 2'6" because I think she's got a hidden slab fracture or bone spur in one of the front legs that caused her some soreness on occassion. Would be an amazing first horse for a smart teenager though! I'd absolutely take her if someone can get her to SC.
