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!

  • Dressage! Eventing! Tons of stuff (part 1)!

    My car died at 11pm Christmas night. Two days, $850 and 50 miles later it died again, (in spectacular fashion, late at night and stranding me and my very worried young blue dog) and making Christmas a six day ordeal and adding a nasty end to a year that saw way too many vet bills. I'm probably looking at (at best) replacing the head gasket or (at worst) a cracked block. So I need cash (and automotive jingles!) and have cleaned out the tackroom for your post-holiday shopping pleasure!

    Free shipping if you buy $75 worth of stuff or more!

    Otherwise, email me (rooanddogs (AT) y a h o o (dot) com ), what you want and your ZIP code and I'll try to figure out a total with shipping and delivery confirmation for you.

    Paypal is best! I need money *fast* to get my car back (or to put towards another car). I might be pursuaded to take a money order or a check under the right circumstances, but pleasepleaseplease, Paypal would be preferred.

    Email (rooanddogs (AT) y a h o o (dot) com ) is probably better than private messages.

    Miracle Collar (to stop cribbing). New with tags. Brown. $40

    Poly Pad Shaped Dressage pad, new (washed to remove dust, never been on a horse), black $45

    Poly Pad Shaped Dressage pad, new (washed to remove dust, never been on a horse), brown $45

    Cashel pad. Black ¾” flat (no wedge) to fit 17.5” and up dressage saddles. Used only a few times and never directly against a horse, but it’s been sitting around so it shows some tackroom wear. $15

    Kieffer dropped noseband, black, made in Germany. Horse size. Has connectors from noseband to ends of headpiece so noseband doesn’t distort and droop. Brand new, never been on a horse. $35

    Korsteel flexible stirrups. Have black rubber sides and pads (look like Sprengers). Stainless steel. 4.25” actual measurement between the rubber things. Used. $20

    Stübben Fillis Irons 4.75”. Used, but brand new black pads. $25

    Serengeti polo wraps. Brand new in package with tags. Royal blue with subtle, tasteful (no, really) glitter effect. $10

    Bit of Britain flash attachment Horse size, Havana, stainless hardware. Brand new with tags. Nice design (snugs flash right up to noseband, unlike the long buckle attachment thingies, and you can take it off when you don’t need it without having that distracting little tag thing). Made in USA. $20

    Bit of Britain / Nunn Finer Kineton noseband An extremely effective device for horses that pull. The stainless steel loops fit under the bit with the adjustable nosepiece going over the nose. Pulling creates a downward pull on the horse's nose. Havana. Made in USA. $50

    Beval(?) figure-8 noseband. Looks a lot like this one. This was sold to me as a Beval noseband, but I’m not all that familiar with the brand (and Beval has really unhelpful customer service…) so don’t know for sure. Really nice leather, raised, some padding, contrast stitching, nice stainless steel hardware, natural sheepskin fleece padding under the disk thing on the nose. The only marking on it is an “F” at the end of the crownpiece. There is one little place on the nosedisk that should have a stitch put in. Lovely noseband (Beval or not). Looks a lot like this one $50

    Cavesson with flash noseband. Havana. Used. For horse with finer head. No maker, probably Indian (but not awful. Used. $10

    Bridle, TB sized. Brown, French cavesson. Very used. Probably Indian made. $15

    Flat brown hunting noseband. ¾” Used. $15

    Courbette browband, black, raised, padded. About 16” Bottom one here. Lightly used. $15

    Bit of Britain / Nunn Finer / Eventa reins
    Havana, buckle ends. These are not your pimple-grip rubber reins. These are comfy, supple, grippy, and you might find you don’t need gloves. Totally addictive! Lightly used. $75

    Sabre made in England (gorgeous quality) flash replacement strap. Brand new, 5/8” Dark brown. $10

    Stübben dressage reins. Black web with stops. Hook stud ends. Brand new, never been on a horse. $40

    Stübben plain reins. Chocolate brown. Martingale stops, hook stud ends. Lightly used. $40

    Reins. Gorgeous. I can’t remember the name (Jerry’s? Bobby’S KL Select? . Black leather with brown stops and brass hardware. Best quality, English leather (can’t remember if made in England or here). Paid $130 new (they made sense as I was switching between black tack and brown and bridged the gap nicely ? ). Particularly spiffy-looking on dark horses. Really gorgeous piece of tack. Used for about a month. Look new. $60

    Bit of Britain / Nunn Finer nylon center stirrup leathers. Lightly used. Havana. Best stirrup leathers ever! Never stretch, roller buckles (so easy to adjust), made in US, Lightly used. $40

    Courbette Leathers, lightly used, 63” made in Germany. Berber brown. $40

    Stübben leathers. 58” These look ike they may have been ridden in once. I think they are water buffalo leather, as they are a bit thicker and more textured then the regular Stübben leathers, and are tannish brown color. And I got them from an eventer (waterbuffalo is pretty break-resistant, and good if you’re going to be getting your leathers wet in the water complex and such.) In any case, triple-stitched, pre stretched, stainless steel buckles. $50

    Custom stirrup leathers by Gary Mundy. These were custom made to match an old Stübben Siegfried Havana brown saddle that really did have the same color as a fine cigar. 63” but there are 21 holes (each an inch apart) that make these super adjustable (most leathers have 12 holes or so). American made of “English” processed American hides. Like buttah! Ridden in twice. $40

    Crosby stirrup leathers, 57” made in England. I think these are black or a very very very dark brown. Well used, but good condition, not stretched out or anything. Lots of life left. $30

    Big D black nylon shipping halter. Rolled throat (no snap), brass hardware. Brand new. $10

    English bridle leather lead shank. 70” with 30” brass chain. Super quality. Triple stitched, nylon web-reinforced end. Never used, as I haven’t needed a chain for anyone, but periodically cleaned because it was hanging around awaiting use. Lol I thought it was bit of Britain, but don’t see a stamp. $25

    Leather lead shank 80” with 20” brass chain. Not as nice as the other one. same condition, but someone nibbled on the end. $15

    Braided synthetic Eskadron lead shank. Brass bull snap. Made in Germany. Royal blue, navy blue and brown. New with tags. I have had one of these for four years that lives out on a fencepost in Vermont weather 24/7 and it still looks new. Best lead rope ever! $10

    Wintec girth 50” (actual measurement) Dark brown stainless steel roller buckles. Used <5 times. $25

    Wintec shaped/chafeless girth 48” dark brown has keepers for overgirth. Used twice. Stainless steel roller buckles. $25

    Stübben trevira dressage girth. 28”/70cm White. Used once (too big). $20

    Dressage girth 27” (actual measurement) Nylon web over cotton blend underside. Sturdy, lightly used, plenty of keepers even for a flap girth. $10

    Split-end leather contour girth. Marked 40” actual measurement 43”. Brown. Split with double elastic at one end. Older, very used, elastic shows wear. $15

    Please email me with any questions, as I won't be able to do returns (unless I super mess up a measurement or something).

    Thanks so much!
