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!

      Hey cheeky!! I am upset...but he'll be sitting in a field at least a few months as I had a horsey accident not long ago...hurt my hip a little but thought Id be okay...apparrently Ive done something to my back to put pressure on the sciatic nerve in my leg...that aside from some other health issues that put me out of work a few weeks before your accident have left me in a bit of a bind. I had also enrolled awhile back for school in January, so now Im getting to a place where Im realizing that school has to come first, and everything else needs to wait. You know Ive always put the horses ahead of myself but the truth is, that accident scared me...I want to ride and I want to keep King so bad but its hurting us both. Its not fair for him to sit in a barn that I cant pay for, for 3 months, alone because I cant ride him, just for me to get better in time to start back to school and a full time job. Ive put so much into him, and he just deserves so much more. If a few years down the road, when my psychology degree is finished and, health wise, things are a little more settled for me, King can come back than so be it but for now I have to say goodbye. Hope all is well for you guys, and nice to see how many people have stepped up to the plate for you. Youre so lucky to be in one piece right now!! Anyway, if you know of anyone who may be interested feel free to have them contact me... I will take priority to those recommended, and those in close proximity to PA as thats where Ill be come 2008. Keep in touch...

          Hi Fuzzy,

          Did you get hurt on this horse? He sounds really nice, but it's a little concerning to see your ad on Dreamhorse for $6500 and on COTH he is free. We all have issues at some point in our lives, but why is he FREE? You could certainly sell him quickly at a price lower than $6500, or even free-lease him until your situation is improved. Is he 100% sound and sane? I might know someone who would be interested in him. I am in Massachusetts. Give us more information on him.

            Actually with the market like it is, it is very hard to find homes for anyone. And why does it matter if she got hurt on this horse?

            To the OP, I hope you find a wonderful home, he sounds like a great horse.

              Um, it matters because the person I had in mind, although an advanced rider, doesn't need a horse that is prone to bucking/rearing and the likes. Have you heard of the old saying, "if it's too good to be true, it probably is"?

                King

                Please email me privately. Where in PA will you be ending up? I am in NY, on the PA border. We are interested in providing a forever home for King, with visitation. Need a horse for my daughter to show, 50 acres of electric tape fence on dead-end dirt road on quiet farm. Trainer is working with my daughter. She is a quiet rider.

                  The reason why he is listed on dreamhorse for $6500 is because thats what he was appraised at. I had put him up on there hoping to get a bite, but I dont have the time to wait it out. And yes, the horse market is very bad right now, and with him being only 15.1hh, he is a hard horse to market. Everyone has visions of ponies and warmbloods, and there are a million TBs for sale around 16hh. I did fall off of King a couple of weeks ago, when he tripped on unsteady footing, but trust me when I say he is far from dangerous. Ive owned him since age two and he has never reared, and the only time he will even attempt a buck is when he catches himself off balance, which is why I said he needs a steady rider. He would be very unhappy with someone bouncing all over his back and/or sliding up his neck. I have been riding horses for 21 years and have owned my share since age 14. This is certainly not the first time Ive fallen. If you had checked on dreamhorse a couple of weeks ago there was an ad up for Pizzazzy, a 16.1hh bay TB, for $3000. I just gave him to a wonderful home for free as well. Please dont make accusations, and if your advanced rider needs a horse that never makes a mistake than gook luck in your search....I dont know of any that fit your description. As for anyone else who may be interested, yes King is 100% sound and 100% sane...

                      And here I am in California looking for a smaller horse for my mom and daughter, since Smokey's size is so daunting, and there seems to be nothing but quarter horses My mom seems set on something flashier.

                      Oh, well, I really shouldn't be encouraging her since I know it will just mean 2 horses for me to take care of, LOL!

                      I understand why you put him here, Fuzzy. You think it would be nice to see him go to a great home, and maybe if it is someone here you could see pics of him and keep track of how he's doing. I really hope a great home pans out for him He really sounds like a gem. If I didn't have to please my mom I might be all over him for my daughter (I might not be able to yell at my mom when she rides badly, but I can yell at my kid! And 15.1 isn't too far to fall to learn a lesson on not torturing your horse )

                        So then the question would be better worded as "Does this horse have any problems with bucking and/or rearing?" Not "Did you get hurt on this horse?" You can definately get hurt on any horse, and apparently this injury did happen on this horse through no fault of his own. I know a couple of people who have gotten hurt on very quiet, reliable horses because of a trip or stumble. Doesn't mean anything bad about the horse. It seemed like your post was an accusation, the way it was worded, that's all.

                          Ok AS I have stated before this is a nice horse. I was there trying Pizzazzy when Fuzzy had her fall. All he did was get stuck in deep, DEEP footing at the end of the indoor. He basically just got stuck, stumbled, pulled himself up, and in the process she came off. No rearing no bucking, no acting like a fool. It was an honest attempt for him to get himself out of a deep spot. When she first got on him he was business-like, and away they went. This could have happened to anyone, regardless of their experience. When she did tumble, he stopped and went right back to where she was, which was only about 5 feet away. If he was a rearer/bucker, he would have wondered away. He did no such thing. Like I said before If I could afford 3 horses, I would have taken him as well, but I can't. Fuzzy is just in a bind right now and is just trying to do right by King.

                            I am in Illinois. If all else fails, let me know. He looks like a great horse, and I would take great care of him. I do a little eventing, lessons, trail riding.

                                Thank you for giving me the oppurtunity to own King! I am trying to arrange the transport still. I have found many that can do it, just not within the time period that you want. But the search is still on!!! I will not give up, I want King to join our Family!

                                        No he is not available. There are several entries discussing the fact that he was adopted. If you would please read the post you would notice that ! You bother me in that you are interested in almost every horse on here! You can't possibly be interested in that many horses. You say you are looking for a companion for a pony but you respond to 20 adds. Perhaps you should read them all and narrow your search down to the ones you are really interested in then respond? Or are you maybe going to try to sell them after you adopt each one? Just note- you are sending up a red flag by responding to each and every add! I apologize for being critical but it doesn't seem right.

                                          equislover, thank you for saying what I was thinking when I saw that horselover4 has posted on almost every thread for a free horse. That also makes me question why, and feel very uncomfortable. People please be sure to check references, have contracts, and then follow up when placing horses....
