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!

  • Canter Cutie looks like she came out of a Stubbs Painting

    I think this pretty and feminine girl looks like a classic TB right out of a Stubbs Painting. The price is right and she looks like a good sort overall! Somebody must be looking for a new pony ;-)

              You can't tell anything from that video. She looks like a tight ampped up race horse.

              You need to see her in person--if you like her, buy her and give her some time off and body work.

              She has a nice shoulder and decent angles. If she is sound, there will be a decent mover in there. It may just take a little time to get it out. And given her very pretty face...she isn't hard to look at.

                    It was appealing to me that she was not boxing with the clouds and minding her handler despite standing out in the open on a hill, right next to a race track, with a busy view of highway and all kinds of visual stimulation along with a beautiful day and still she turned, did not rear and buck. What a very lovely mare!

                      I must say you people are really very confusing. I don't find "well she didn't even try to kill the handler" to be an attractive attribute in a horse.

                        I think the point that Calamber was trying to make is that this mare is a amped up racehorse in the middle of an extremely busy setting and despite the nice weather, all the feed she probably gets, all the energy she has and everything that is going on, she was very mindful to her handler. Which to me says a lot about her temperament.

                          Would you rather see them trying to kill their handler


                          I think the point of the earlier poster was that she is a race horse, in a lively environment who might have been tight but was not a loon. My WB in that same environment would have been wild.

                          But I stand by my view that you can not judge the mare by that video...good or bad.

                                Ah, hell. My horse can't jog down the barn aisle sometimes without trying to be a jerk. She was far more mannerly than him! It doesn't help that her handler looks to be a bit timid to really run with her...and, she's a TB, still on the track. They aren't meant to trot...they're meant to GALLOP. The trot takes time to develop on most of them. Very few come off the track moving like Courageous Comet!

                                She's a looker. A little too big and fine for my taste (I thought she was 15.2ish before I saw she was actually 16.2!), but a stunner, nonetheless.

                                  Just stumbled upon this thread, haven't been in this forum in a bit. I saw this mare last week on the site and thought she was just lovely. Still have my mind on her honestly = )

                                  I would have been in Kentucky last weekend for a looksee if I only had a trailer = ) I told my husband it was a good thing we don't have a trailer yet or I would have taken a secret road trip and come home with a new horse. Want. I think she appeals to my saddlebred/arab background, haha.

                                  I love a bay mare, and I love them to be more refined. I agree her video isn't super impressive as far as how she's moving, but I still love her look and would be willing to take a gamble depending on how she looks in person, haha. I mean, for $500, she'd at least be pretty to look at in the barn.

                                  Someone in Texas with a trailer want to go on a roadtrip to KY?

                                  Really, I'm totally in the market for a new prospect as of next spring, so it's only a few months early, right? Hubby will understand...

                                    I think she is beautiful, and I really, really hope someone takes her, and gives her a good home.

                                      I went and saw this mare over the weekend. Sweetest thing ever in the stall! Complete cuddle bug, playing with the zipper on my sweater, and begging for scratches. We were joking she wanted to be in hollywood the way she was posing. Sticked her at a true 16.2 hh. Her ankles are quite large and knobby. The osslets are very visible on the lateral aspects of both front ankles, but she flexed without a problem and trotted off perfectly sound. Couldn't really assess movement for sport other than to say that she had a lot of suspension ;-) I'm looking for something I could turn around and resell, and I don't think i can take the risk on her, but I think she would be great for someone who is just looking for themselves, as her personality was to die for! Here are some more pics I took.
