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!

  • Finger Lakes Prospect

    Her name is Broadway'sstardust. She didn't even get to the track until last year at age 4, and per my virtual stable has had only about six races. Her last race was this last week.

    I've been tracking this little (15.1) girl for a couple of years. She has a very, very nice pedigree for eventing, but she's slightly parrot mouthed I've been told. Parrot mouth is something that you wouldn't want to breed, so, even with her pedigree, she isn't really a broodmare prospect. She's not a flashy mover, nor is she flashy herself, but I'd bet she'd make a very, very useful LL horse. I do like her basic conformation.

    I'd take her in a heartbeat if I had the financial wherewithal to buy, ship and keep another horse; but things have gotten to the point where I just can't. and she's only $500 (possibly less).


    She's a Washington bred, and most of the close horses in her pedigree are West Coast regional.

    What a puppydog eye she has! She's truly wanting her own person.

    We bought our youngest daughter a little OTTB mare for Christmas when she (the kid) was 10. They really bonded and that little mare only had eyes for her. http://s272.photobucket.com/albums/j...rrent=scan.jpg

    Stardust here needs a kid too.

      Great trainer to deal with for long-distance buyers--I wouldn't hesitate to buy sight unseen from him again!

        She is a cute thing, and uphill too, which I think is pretty rare to find in the right off the track horses w/o conditioning and dressage training. That is promising!
        And this is the story of your red right ankle.

          I think she's adorable. As long as the Parrot mouth isn't going to be an issue for you, then if you can, why not. I'm sure there are others that will be shipping and you can find something to work with.
          Good luck!
          ps-I do like her build and so what if she's small! I like them small

            All my favorite TB's in her pedigree : Full Pocket, Broadway Forli, Raise a Native, Grey Dawn.
            Too bad I bought an OTTB last month and unfortunately no more room at the inn.

              I met her last year. She's an absolute darling, sweetheart!

                viney - props to you for giving a heads up to something that may not be as flashy or pretty as some of the others that get posted. These horses may not be the fanciest looking but they still deserve the same rights to a new home as the tall dark and handsomes.

                  No one knows TB pedigrees better than you, so if you say she may be something special I will take your word for it! I live close to FL and will post her on my FB page. Maybe one of my local friends would be interested in her.

                    Thank you so much. I really want this girl to have a soft landing. If her temperament and trainability are as good as Maunder and the trainer say, then combined with the sterling pedigree and her uphill conformation and big engine, she really should be a useful horse for someone.

                    The reason I fell in love with her paper is that she is tail female to Lady Juror/Lady Josephine, and her sire's tail female is to Salaminia/Alcibiades, and he is Olden Times sire line. She's got all the right lines for sport:
                    Damascus, Forli, Full Pocket, Heliopolis, Tudor Minstrel, RAN, Ack Ack, a full brother to Swaps (Khaled x Iron Reward x Beau Pere), Grey Dawn, Precipitation, Abernant--the list goes on and on. In the main, her mares are from lines that have worked for sport, every one of them. It's just lovely for many generations--one of the best I've seen.

                      No problem. If I had the funds to support two, I'd take her myself in a heartbeat. I just bought a Morgan this summer but will admit I am still a serious sucker for a nice, good-hearted TB. Hopefully someone will snatch her up.

                        Bumping this with a little heartache; this pretty girl checks all my boxes. Maybe in a few years when I can actually afford it, I'll find another like her.

                        Someone take her home (and then take lots of pics)!

                          I don't know a ton about conformation, but was wondering what everyone thought about this mare. Cannot get another, but always up to learn about confo!

                            Other than her longish pasterns, she reminds me a bit of my chestnut TB mare. I watched her video and she is not a bad mover. I think she could be quite nice as a sport horse.

                              If anyone decides to get her, please let me know. I've got a long distance crush on her.
