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!

    Maybe the OP will contact the original trainer and receive nothing or they might find out that this was one of the trainers favorite lower level horses. As long as you contact a trainer in a polite manner I don't see any harm. Plus you might found out valuable information about the horses strengths or weaknesses.

        I don't get it!

        I think that it's the most natural thing to want more info about a horse you found this way. I don't think any trainer would be offended and that they would be happy to give what ever info they could. They just might be relieved to hear that the horse is alive and in good hands.

        As for the value, it was probably fair for the price they payed. Who knows what her value would be if she is very rideable and sound and even has a great jump? Maybe priceless to the present owner and her daughter?

          right..."reasonable length of time"

          here's my back story
          I got a mare JUST like this one...

          branded (oldenburg or SWB I think) (check)
          teenaged (check)
          no papers (check)
          clinic-ed/trained with some dressage lady named Steiner years back (check)
          lives at the corner of Nut Weed Dr. and Nasty Ave. for: in hand-in stall-leading-after foaling (got two good chunks out of two different people before I got her) (check)

          rides ok even up to "not bad" (check)

          now what's this Steiner lady gonna tell me about this mare that is pertinent to my not getting eaten alive when I approach her at feeding??? or not killed if I ever bred her? or nor flattened like a tortilla if I lead her when she's not in season ?

          nuthin. nuthin at all.
          so why would I bother her about this mare?? what is my motivation in this scene as they say ???

              I really don't see how any of this relates to the OP and her questions about her horse. Sorry that your horse tries to bite you...? Um... And it's fine if you don't want to call Gloria Steiner. Who cares? The OP is super excited about her daughter's new horse and wants to find out as much as she can about her history. Because she likes her! Because she wants to know her better! What on earth is wrong with that? Why don't you just let it go?

              OP, I'm interested to hear if you have contacted the trainer, and if so what did she have to say?

                TNT - What does you poor purchase have to do with the OP's situation ?

                It may indeed help OP to find out how this mare is bred, and be able to get papers from the registry. It would also help to find out how far this mare went in her training, how well she trained, and if she had injuries.

                Sorry about your nose - but you owe OP an apology.

                  Yeah that is it your nose is out of joint....

                  Personally I'd want to find any background info on the horse too. For the benefit of the horse. In case there were any old injuries or successes.

                    not a purchase I assure you,a gift,more of package deal years ago

                    my point is that nothing Gloria Steiner is going to tell me about my mare is going to affect her day to day living quality.

                    nothing

                    I was more careful to get her back story from the people who had her and handled her every day and made her this way.

                    not a semi famous lady who touched her briefly

                    but if the angle is find a Cinderella Backstory then great,we all need more nice stories.

                      LOL I remember horses I rode fifty years ago and yes I rode a lot of them.
                      Might be one or two I've forgotten.

                        TNT if you had been excited about your recent purchase as the OP is about hers, you might feel differently about hearing from a former trainer. But you are dealing with what you've got and from the sound of it, unless you can put some nicer manners on this mare, you're her last stop, short of dumping her on some unsuspecting bidder at a local auction (not that I'm say you'd do that), but your mare is going to be a harder sell.

                          Really?
                          And you know this how?

                          Maybe Gloria Steiner might know about a career ending injury.
                          Maybe Gloria Steiner might remember some strange training issue this mare has that turns her from a great horse to a crazy horse and thus avoiding getting the OP's child hurt.

                          Or, Maybe Gloria Steiner might know nothing helpful.
                          But no harm done asking.

                          Why are you so against the OP asking?

                              OP I can certainly relate to your desire to fill in the holes in your mare's history. I've followed a pony I owned 16 years ago because he kept getting sold with an inaccurate birth date. In fact in 2008 he was pictured in the COTH winning a ch. in Small Pony Hunters at the age of 17. Considering he was 24 at the time I thought it was even more amazing! Through the years new owners have always been gracious enough to take my calls or respond to my emails, and I've been able to fill in holes for them. Once it got his price reduced and sent to a proper semi-retirement home rather than a competitive show barn. Once it made the trainer say "well that explains why he needs his hocks injected."

                              She looks lovely and hopefully, if there was any career ending injury (I'm betting on an undiagnosed semi-chronic lameness) that caused her to be donated that 3 years of turnout and living like a horse has been just what she needed to recover.

                              Good luck and keep us posted!

                                I don't think there's anything wrong with wanting to contact an old trainer or someone who rode the horse. I rode many, many horses that came through my trainer's barn as lesson horses and even if those horses are older now, I could certainly tell their owners some interesting things

                                I would love to know my one guy's background and he's 22 and retired! But I'd love to know what he was like when he was at the track and then as a pony horse. Would it help me figure out why he acts the way he does? Maybe, maybe not. But it could give me some fun stories!

                                    OP, I wish you luck in connecting the history dots on your new horse.

                                        I understand what you are saying though...really...it was just the delivery I think that was off.

                                        I know that when someone is as excited as the OP they really want to learn more. I would!
                                        Maybe her research will let them know of any past injuries or conditions.

                                        I'm hoping this might be her forever home and not just a place to be fattened up and passed along.

But you are dealing with what you've got and from the sound of it, unless you can put some nicer manners on this mare, you're her last stop, short of dumping her on some unsuspecting bidder at a local auction (not that I'm say you'd do that), but your mare is going to be a harder sell.


                                          my mare is not for sale
                                          she was never for sale...she is in the last place she will ever live and has been here three years ?? maybe more

                                          she came here to make welsh part-breds (before I understood what I was dealing with) but we will never breed her.

                                          she's got a coosh enough life eating grass and keeping another mare company and we fiddle with her when she is in standing heat (thanks to Kathy Mann on the hormone questions) for vet and farrier and riding

                                          and as I have no visitors or stall help or customers for her to hurt and the kids know to avoid her,everything is jake

                                          when the time comes,we will just kill her here...for now however I have the money to just "have" her for the occasional trail ride when the stars and heat cycles align... and I feel bad that she is this way....maybe this is my gift to her for a while?
