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!

    wow, that's a nice pony. I'll bet his canter is just as nice...hope someone gets him soon.

      Someone needs him quickly so I don't start scheming about ways to bring him home. Sadly that is not in the plan right now so please take such cute temptation away! I'm here for enabling-who needs it. ACME, we're in the same state. I'm pretty sure you need him. The COTH network is vast and is known for supplying references for vets and eyes on the ground. CatchMe, I think the ad sounds like once he's on the farm he is a-ok in the nerves and behavior department. It can't hurt to call and get some more details.

      Anyone else tempted and need some justification? I'm bored at work all day today!

          I wouldn't worry about that. Give him time and the right re-training and he will be brave for you. I'd get him home, turn him out and start him on GG.

          This is a really nice horse.....

            Ok ok I am seriously interested. I can call tomorrow. I have never vetted a horse (from the track or otherwise) and am not overly worried considering how sound he is on concrete. What would you suggest I get done? BFNE, can you pm me a suggestion for a vet? I would need to ship him to Chicago - my friend would get him if someone else needed a ride in either direction. Any suggestions for shippers or anyone know of someone needing a ride?

              PM xctrygrl - she just went through this at mountaineer and has the contact info for the 2 vets that go there. I can send to you later when I'm not trying to do this on my phone. I tried to get a guy last month but wasn't quick enough. He lasted a whole 24 hrs

                  cssutton it's a lifetime goal....I just happen to be in my 20's right now. I am a long, long way from being good. I'm functional, but there's always more to learn!

                  He would be fun for the RRTP challenge, BFNE! It's open for pros, adult ammys, and juniors-I'm looking forward to seeing the new participants and the results.

                      Ok my ducks are finally in a row. I am calling tomorrow morning, and hopefully he is still there. I have someone that wants to use him for the RRTP. Is it hard to get picked for it?

                      I will not be vetting, will be buying sight unseen, and will be shipping him to my friend in a different city than where I am. Should be fun if it all works out!

                                    Well, y'all are the best enablers on the planet - he should be getting on a trailer to Chicago tomorrow. I am very excited. He will be my first horse as an "owner" - it has been my dream to own horses for up and coming riders (kind of like how other little girls want to go to Rolex!). Granted, he is going to one of my best friends and I will still take some lessons on him and do some shows myself, but I had to start somewhere! We filled out an app for the RRTP so hopefully we can all follow him on there!

                                    Did everyone pronounce "qui" right in their head? It sounds like "key." While it would be best to keep his track name as it directly relates to his parents, I hate having names butchered by announcers, and I usually name my horses after movie titles.

                                    One other thing to get feedback on - how do people in the US feel about adding prefixes for horse's owned/trained by someone? Riders in NZ often ride their horses with sponsor prefixes or there are the famous farms of horses like Clifton (who didn't breed all of their horses). It seems much more common abroad. I am toying with the idea of adding a 3 letter prefix to the horses I own.

                                          YEAHHHHHHH Very happy. I did pronounce his name correctly. I think most announcers would. That's a pretty basic french word!


                                          You can add a prefix if you want. I haven't done it yet with any of my horses but have also thought of it. In the end, I decided I wasn't going to breed and re-sell enough for it to make a difference from a name branding perspective.


                                          I've got my fingers crossed on him and you!
