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 Alert!

    Oh dear, I'm LOVING this boy! I always seem to pick out ones from the Storm Cat line, though I've never worked with one, they always catch my eye!

    Rumbling Storm, chestnut gelding, 16.1 hands, 4 years old. Boy does this guy have the looks! And he looks to be a super comfortable ride - just look at that shoulder. And he's another Storm Cat - his grandfather on the sire's side. A nice horse to be around and work with. If you want an attention getter in the show ring you better grab him quick. Ready to go and start training for his new show career. Sound with no issues what-so-ever. $2,000

        I was drooling over this one today too! What great conformation, and he looks pretty mellow. It is cute how in the 2nd pict on canter he is resting his head on the trainer.

        The bay Storm Cat mare is really nice too. If I had a farm, I would pick up the gelding...

        Emstah, I just saw that you go to UD...we must think alike. I went to UD and graduated ages ago (1992) I loved it there and that area ( I grew up in the Chadds Ford area and always kept my horses in Unionville even while at college) Where do you ride? Savor your time there...it goes much too fast!

            That guy looks great! I know some people don't like mares, but what a cutie patootie ... and big

            Call Me Stiletto, dark bay filly, 16.1 1/2 hands, 3 years old. This is one BIG girl! She was purchased by owner/trainer as an unbroken two year old and being ridden around the farm and through the fields has been part of training. They say she is an awesome ride; really easygoing and very comfortable - just no speed. And with no speed, no starts on this girl either. No issues - sound and clean. $2,499

              Haha, mum, you want me to bring him on the train with me to NYC next weekend?!

              eks, I ride with Sally Cousins in Oxford. My horses live about 1/4 mile down the street from her which is perfect! I'm a senior this year and have absolutely loved my time here- the thought of being a college grad this time next year is definitly freaking me out! Maybe I'll fail a few classes so I can stay an extra semester Just kidding Mother

              Well yeah, so having two lame(ish), very naughty boys certainly makes a new project look pretty nice!

                Mum, here's what we will do- after NYC, you come down here with me and we'll go look at him. We'll buy him and he can hang around at my barn until Thanksgiving and then I will drive him to Saco. Sounds brilliant to me! Go change your train tickets!!

                  Wow, it's been a long time since I have seen a CANTER horse posted that I really like as much as this guy. Has anyone seen him? I ran his race record, he's raced a lot. I wonder if he really is sound? I wonder if there a truck leaving for CA??

                    You've GOT to go see him! I'm also somehow drawn to the Storm Cat lines, and I recently bought a granddaughter that I really like. Go get that cutie!

                      I just talked to the trainer, he was posted on Thursday and someone looked at him yesterday. I don't think he'll last long. Trainer says he's a nice correct horse that's track crabby but easy to deal with. Sound and ready for a short break then some work.

                      Wish I was close enough to go see him, he does have something about him.

                        I would call him Rumbles.............

                        Em, I actually sort of like your plan. Most likely he won't be there by next Monday. In fact, why don't you just go get him TODAY and then bring him home at T-day time. Ben and Melissa will be happy riding in the truck from NY... Plenty of room. Ben and Mabel in the back seat should be fine, you have Mo after all.
                        Ya, I like this idea better. Just GO.

                                  My CHILD told me last night I already have too many horses and that if I GET RID OF SOME then maybe she'll go get Rumbles for me.......What? Isn't this the wrong way around? Aren"t *I*, the mother the one who's s'posed to tell HER, the child, things like that? Jeeze. Birthday or not, I guess I'm outta luck.
                                  FA, why don't you go get Stilletto and bring ME the red one.......

                                    That's just WRONG RiverBendPol! I was following this exchange keenly as it gave me a bright idea about the value of reproducing, but now not so much!!

                                    Work it girl. Rumbles wants to live in Maine.

                                      Hey hey hey, I am just TRYING to be realistic about all of this! No one wants that boy more than I do, BUT, I'm just attempting to be rational, which is not usually my strong point! I KNOW that if I go look at him I will bring him home and we will have years of happiness together, and that he will become the best event horse ever to walk to earth, BUT, who needs any of that?!
