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!

  • Stargate auction?

    It was mentioned in another thread that Stargates horses are coming up for auction.Does anyone know where there is any information about the horses offered for sale?Ive googled with no luck.Im also trying to find a video of Bergamon and trying to find out what level dressage he is trained to and whether or not he has competed.Thanks for your help.

    Here is a link to the website about the auction. The sale is November 21st. I don't think they have a catalog yet. http://www.professionalauction.com/09stargate.htm

    Bergamon was in the USDF symposium a few years back. Ernst Hoyos worked him in hand and thought he had a tremendous gift for piaffe. I suggest contacting Roslyn at Stargate for more information about the stallion's training and show record.

          Stargate auction

          Stargate brought some horses to the Professional Auc Service Summer Sporthorse Sale in Lexington, VA. I went to spectate not really expecting anything to go in my price range. Some very nice broodmares in foal to Stargate stallions went for under $5. If I had gone prepared I would have bought one of them for sure. I have been sorry about the missed opportunity ever since. I would expect to find some bargains at the sale in November. Alas, too far for me to go...

            Is this a separate auction?

              Those look like two different auctions held in two different places in Texas.

              Too bad, it might split the market if people can't go to both on the same day.

                  Can anyone tell me how far Stargate is from Austin TX? I'll be in Austin next week, am wondering if it's worth it to go have a look at their horses and then bid over the phone during the auction. I am looking for a good broodmare.

                    That will be close to a 4 hour drive. Stargate is on the north side of Dallas.

                      i think it would be a 3.5 or 4 hr drive depending on traffic.

                        You're looking at about 4 solid hours Austin to Dallas. (Used to live in Austin, now live in Dallas)

                        It's an easy 4 though- just get on 35 and set the cruise button.

                          I do plan to go up for the auction. If there is something in particular you are interested in, I would be willing to act as agent to place bids for you. Contact me privately.

                            The other auction mentioned is in Weatherford at October Hill on the same day. This is actually an excellent opportunity for buyers...as the Stargate auction is being held in the morning and is limited to 40 horses and the Candy Store auction starts at 2 pm and is open to 100 horses. The two facilities (two of the nicest in Texas) are approximately one hour apart. So, the opportunity to see 140 top notch horses in one day. Not something that happens in this country very often!

                              The Candy Store Auction will likely be a better venue for finding nicer horses. They're setting it up very much like a big German auction in Verden. Booze, VIP tables, etc. Can't wait to see the horses in it.

                                So, is anyone else going? My friend and I are going to attend to see Stargate one more time and we've never been to a sport horse auction before. They moved the time so it is not starting until 6pm. We are window shoppers not buyers, so planning to arrive 4:30-5:00pm? I have no idea what to expect, how it will be set-up, etc., etc. Any tips? I'm very excited! Got the book in the mail on Monday and will definitely be picking out my "in case I win the lottery Friday" horses!

                                  if you're going anyway, just go ahead and buy Bergamon Rebecca

                                    I've actually been considering it, but I really don't want to get back into standing stallions. I just hope he goes to a good home where they'll market him and not let him just sort of disappear.

                                    But if you guys want to get a consortium together to buy him, we can do that and then stand him with Kathy St. Martin!
