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!

  • Craigslist TB in midwest

    http://southbend.craigslist.org/grd/3208040140.html

    Anyone looking for an event prospect? Look at the trot and knees on this Craigslist mare. I think she's a great prospect who could use a rider upgrade. I have no affiliation with this horse or rider, of course, just hoping to maybe get the right eyes on this horse. I really can't buy another right now or I would go get her myself.

    Good sport pedigree too, Alydar, blushing groom and in reality. Get her off the forehand and straight and she will look like a different horse.

              Holy cow, I'm in love. And that's saying something considering I don't like mares or smaller ones.

              Yeah, she could use a jockey upgrade, but I think that little 11 year old kid is a dynamo! Some time in the saddle with some good instructions (or at least someone to raise her stirrups four holes ) she's going to be a great little rider.

                      I totally agree, I did not mean to insult the kid, she has some awesome seat of the pants talent. Just saying that the horse would look better after a little dressage training.

                      I hope someone picks her up. And then keeps us informed about how awesome she is!

                        Oh dear.

                        I might be in danger of needing another horse at the moment. But I'm supposed to be on the lookout for one that other people might want to ride, like a 16.2hh calm gelding as opposed to yet another speedy little mare.

                        I'm trying to think of an excuse, like I'm not sure where Indiana is or something like that.

                        Also, I love the kid. I love how she's got her eye up and rides forward, and I love that her parents let her ride around in the front yard like this.

                          Man she is pretty! I've got a gelding by the stallion, "Star Of The Crop", on the dam's side. My guy ran 45+ times and has the best work ethic. Always tries hard. Super tempting! Not too far from Lexington, Ky.

                              Here's some info that I got. Current owner wanted her as 2yo but couldn't buy her then. They tracked mare throughout career and finally bought her last December. Current owner ran her once in June, mare didn't do well so they have decided to find her a good riding home. Video is mare's first time jumping, rider normally does barrel racing/rodeo. Current owner feels mare is a more english type which is why they are not keeping her. Mare is a light cribber.

                                Well do keep us posted! She is a diamond in the rough for sure, love the trot up and over and down the drive way!

                                I'm too far, and though potentially looking for another horse, it has to be a gelding because... well Mr. " I LOVE ME SOME WOMEN" is a PITA around the ladies!

                                  That's her first time jumping?? That definitely ups the cute/diamond in the rough factor for me. What a willing, patient girl! Light cribber might not be the end of the word...

                                  She's too far from me (Google maps even confirmed . Not that I could get her anyway right now) Who's going to take her home and keep us updated?

                                  JER what are you talking about "people might want to ride"? There's a whole list of people on this thread who want to ride her! That counts

                                  Sending serious enabling vibes to whoever needs them. I'm an expert at justifying things. If you need some excuses, I'm happy to provide them!

                                    I'm slightly turned off by the cribber part because of potential resale. So how much would that affect the price of the mare who say was competing novice safely, and could be ridden by a kid? I personally love small aka 15.2-16 hand horses, but I'm a minority. I'm afraid I'll hear, "So that's a 15.2 mare who cribs? Oh I'm sorry I'm looking for a gelding who is at least 16.2 and definitely not a cribber!"

                                      light cribber might just be ulcers and could go away in a different situation....but you should proceed as if it will be worse. I would think small and mare will lower the potential resale more. She's pretty cute....and that always sells

                                        A light cribber doesn't bother me since my horses live outside and don't have much on which to crib (electric fence). It wouldn't turn me off enough to not go have a look, and is always a negotiating point when it comes to price.
