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!

  • Perlino QH Gelding - Free To Good Home or Free Lease - Maryland

    This is the 2nd horse from the same owner who needs a new home soon. She has had him since he was 4 months old and he is just coming six now. I see him everyday, but personally haven't handled him or spent much time with him. Here is what his owner has to say about him:

    He is 15.3 hands tall, has blue eyes, wears front shoes (but has been barefoot in the past), sound, no health problems, is UTD with shots/teeth/coggins/farrier and trailers well. He is very well educated as a western pleasure horse, was shown as a 2, 3 and four year old and did very well. He needs an experienced rider, since he is still young and does get bored easily with repetitive work. He has a very sweet, willing personality, and is very smart. He could excel in whatever you wanted him to, so long as you took the time to work him. His only thing is that he can't be kept as a field care horse because of his pale coloring. He'd sunburn like crazy. He can be kept with mares or geldings and is easy to handle... no vices. Easy keeper.

    She is currently offering him for Free lease, but will give him to an excellent home with the right situation.

    If interested, please contact me and I will put you in touch with his owner.

      LOL, I know the feeling all too well!! I'd take the mustang, geld him and make a trail horse out of him in a second if I wouldn't come home to the doors locked and all of my stuff in the road!!!

      We're taking in one of the ponies we adopted out a few years ago while doing the rescue because the adopters are having a hard time with her (PMS, lol) or I'd seriously be bringing the mustang home. I need to hit the lottery so badly!

      I'm happy to give you the owners info on the Perlino if you'd like me to enable you!

          Surely they can sell a fancy horse like that? Why are they giving him away?


          • Original Poster

            She's giving him and her mustang stallion away because she has until May 1st to get out of the barn she's at now...so do I and the rest of the boarders for that matter. Tough situation all around for everyone.

            She was (well, still is for now) the barn manager and ran the business end. She's been having a lot of issues with the so-called 'property manager' and finally threw in the towel...her and all boarders have to move by May 1st.

            She has these two, another QH mare and a young Mustang gelding and can't afford to board all 4 of them since she'll have no income come May 1st and they'll be depending fully on her husband's income.

              Does she have video?

              I have a retired 17 hand cremello.

              Shoulders back, hands down, leg ON!

                I'll call her now to see if she does - I'm thinking that she would have a video, but if not, I can get one of him this weekend for you & post it. Probably won't be until Sunday night, but I'll try to get it up earlier.

                      Change of Plans....

                      I just finally got in touch with her - she has decided to free lease him first and will give him away as long as it's a good match, but wants to do the free lease first. I was alerted that she has him listed on Craigslist as a free-lease and that she wants him to stay in the Harford County area - this was not told to me when I was asked to help, she just asked me to help find him a good home. Soooo, on that note, I will post her email address and anyone interested can contact her directly to see exactly what is going on. I apologize for writing that he needed a home as a give-away when she's now decided to free lease him. I was told about the craigslist post by another COTHER, not the owner, and called her to confirm because she didn't tell me that she changed her plans. I'd rather just have anyone interested go directly to her about the situation because I get a little wary of trying to help someone and things get changed suddenly and I'm not notified.

                      Thanks guys!
