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!

    You have good taste in your choices. The worst pedigree for sport is the best pedigree for racing in the 7 yo but he is a nice looking horse and I certainly wouldn't rule out based on pedigree. I prefer the mares but I prefer mares. PatO

      Excellent eye and taste -- these are some seriously fine looking horses! Great bone, shoulders, conformation, and they don't have the overly long or too straight pasterns one too often sees on TBs. They all look like well balanced horses.
      I love the Cox's Ridge, Buckpasser, and Damascus close up in the dark bay mare's pedigree as lines known for producing good jumpers.
      As a racing fan and a sucker for the racing royalty blueblood pedigrees, I can't help but drool over Dream Smart. I also love flashy red chestnuts with chrome, and from the trot photo he looks like a very nice mover. If he is still sound and clean legged after so many years of racing, that bodes well for his durability.
      I hope you add one or more of them to your eventing prospects at your lovely facility.

        I love#3. I saw her post the other day and if I hadn't just bought a horse I would be running out to look at her.


        • #5
          All nice looking horses!

          Not as keen on 1, like 4 - but 2 or 3 are my picks.

            Jozsi Turn...hands down....


            • #7
              I'm shopping for mares and like both listed. The dark bay tops my list. What a nice solid girl she is.

                Wow, you have nice taste! I would take any of them ;-)

                  I would buy that chestnut mare in a heartbeat if she were closer. LOVE her!
                  If riding were all blue ribbons and bright lights, I would have quit long ago.

                      FWIW The dam of Jozi Turn is a sister to West by West winner of over $1 million (class never hurts in a pedigree) and from the same family as kodiak Kowboy (earner of 1.6 m-same second dam)


                      • #12
                        Them's some damfine pieces of horseflesh!

                        Fantasy Girl is a little long backed, but that plus her hind end equals major jumping power.

                        Line Camp is so nice and beefy, that's a horse who will hold up to hard work. A++ for the pedigree.

                        Dream Smart is just a lovely lovely critter.

                        Jozis Turn is nice. All of her parts are great, but for some reason the overall picture strikes me as a tad bit off... but I'm pretty sure that's just me.

                        My order of preference would be:
                        Line Camp
                        Dream Smart
                        Fantasy Girl/Jozis Turn

                        But you can't go wrong with any of them.

                          While none of them really have the type of neck that catches my eye (they're tied in a little low for me), I would have to go with No. 1.

                          I'd bet money she's a nice big mover and her expression is my favorite of the 4.

                          She looks like she may have a similar body type of the Langfuhr granddaughter I acquired recently and if Fantasy Girl moves the same way, I'd say she may very well be worth checking out in person.

                            Love love love #1. By far the best all-around sporthorse prospect of the bunch. If I was in the market I'd go snatch her up fast.

                            Jozsi's turn has a giant body on much finer-boned legs/feet. Plus the leg looks quite short. Pass.


                            • #15
                              ooooo, I like #1! What a gorgeous girl! She looks like she would be a nice, solid, athletic mare. But, I have one of them, and she is pretty awesome, lol, so who wouldn't want another!?

                                FWIW Fantasy girl's maternal brother sold for 210,000 and her dam
                                is a winning half sister to grade II winner Kumari Continent (by Kris S.) and grade III winner Passion (by Came Home).

                                  I took the pics on all of these except Line Camp. If any of you are interested
                                  in these horses, please do call! The mares just have to be seen in person!
                                  Fantasy Girl is Soooo nice! Jozi is really impressive. She is huge. Dream
                                  is sweet and quiet. All of the horses that Johnna has listed are in fantastic
                                  shape. She is probably honest to a fault. Lol. Of the two "broodmare only" mares
                                  she has listed, Arboria has a knee....could be ridden on the flat....and My Violin
                                  is sound, just a little nervous. So she was worried that nobody would
                                  be interested in her to ride.

                                    For what it is worth, a friend vetted Line Camp and then when it came to discussing price the trainer blew up at her, basically he wanted more than the horse was listed for on canter, the rant got so bad she couldn't get anywhere with him on price.
                                    SO...if anyone is interested in him, he passed the vetting and is likely still available. She paid for xrays and flexions if anyone wanted the report.

                                      All horse that were posted for this trainer have been removed.
                                      He has decided that none are for sale any longer. He decided he did not have
                                      time to show his horses to anyone so they have been removed from the listings.
