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 Cuties need Homes by the end of the month

    Just a heads up, Turfway Park in Northen Kentucky is closing its meet at the end of March, and there are quite a few canter cuties up there that need new homes! I volunteer for Canter KY, so no monetary gain for me, just want to help some horses find some new homes! Some of the lookers include:

    Big Blue Fever- I just love his name!:

    Broken Tango, says sale pending, but he's still on the website...

          I like Blue and Immortal Wink. James is very handsome too.

          I would like to see what poor Coors looks like when he is standing square. Poor guy looks like he is 3 horses all stitched together.

            OP, do you know how willing they would be to negotiate? I am very interested in Suave Shadow to start as a event project, but he's slightly over my budget.

              In my experience with working at the trainers at Arapahoe Park here in Colorado, they are nearly always willing to negotiate. The worst they can say is no--call up the trainer and make a reasonable offer and see. I generally caution people to not go crazy with a lowball offer, as that can be a bit off putting to some, but it sounds like you're close on price, so not going for that tactic!

                  Thanks! I'll call and see if they'd be willing I accept my offer.

                  and I understand what you mean by a lowball offer - I could technically pay the full 1k, (I mean it's not too terribly much) but it'd cut into the savings I have for basic horse care/supplies.

                  Thank you!

                    Just be careful when buying horses, the purchase price is just the beginning - read up on ulcers in TB's (very high incidence so budget for this not cheap treatment, call your vet & inquire; there are ways to do it "on the cheap" but scoping is always the best starting point), expect to sort out feet (frequent trims, special shoes etc), be aware of typical "letdown" & "retraining" - there are some wonderful websites about bringing home your OTTB & re-starting him; be prepared to buy/find the right saddle for your new boy ... & so on

                          the only reference I noticed in this thread to growing young TB's referred to a 2010 filly, who definitely looks as if she is far from "finished"

                            IZS- What is "it"? Brought what up? Are you referring to the suggestion that a 2010 model may still be growing into herself?

                            And I really don't know-- what are we looking at in these two pics? What point were you trying to make?

                              What are we looking at? I'd say a truly terrible hip angle in the first and a simple case of downhill looking in the second. Don't think the first would look much better in person (although maybe--it is TOUGH to get good pictures at the track) but the second could look considerably nicer in person and/or moving.

                                The only horse I took the listing for that is still on the website is Afleet Indy. Most trainers are open to reasonable negotiations, so I would recommend anyone who is interested in a horse to contact the trainer direct. I just want to help spread the word on these horses, as they are nice individuals!

                                    Getting pics can be tough, but I was wondering if anyone thought a bad pic could be THAT different from the real thing. The first horse is described as having "very nice conformation." ????? Really?

                                        Shrug. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and all that CANTER utilizes volunteers that may or may not have the same sort of education or even desires that you or I may have. And the job IS to help get the horses sold.

                                        And perhaps the hip on the horse doesn't look nearly so extreme as in the photos. God knows I've seen horses at the track and formed options based on the real, live animal in front of me and then gotten home and looked at my pics and wondered WTF happened. It's a tough gig, trying to get an accurate representation of the horse in the 10 minutes you've got the horse out of the stall, rarely with level footing, almost never with someone who knows how to set the horse up the way sport horse people want to see and often with all sorts of crazy shit happening around you.
