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!

    Trainer also has this mare who was quite nice even if our pics don't show it!
    http://www.canterusa.org/index.php?o...&directory=302

    This guy could be worth a shot. He looked sound but the trainer thought the acupuncturist hit something bad in his back and the horse is still a bit sore. http://www.canterusa.org/index.php?o...&directory=302

        Maybe Cat Island was taken, or maybe it just conjured up a bad memory for the breeder

                  Navy just won the 4th a Del Park today. Earned over $10,000 for owner who is also trainer and rider so he gets to keep it all. I'll bet he's glad he didn't give her away yet.

                      mcorbett, you should have seen the 12 yr. old OTTB gelding at the TB retraining seminar this weekend. He would change your mind about older horses from the track. (just a few months out from track he went foxhunting, came to the seminar, jumped anything owner pointed him at.)

                        Yep, that is one of the guys (Top Punch, at the retraining seminar) that came through our program and he is super cool. I realize for resale the older guys are tough but truthfully I think they are really easy to start and do well with the ammy riders if they have the right temperament. From ride #1 Top Punch acted like you could set some bombs off under him and he would keep on going. He just takes everything in stride like he has seen it all before and you just can't fool him. I love it. I saw a really cool 10yr at Delaware Park the owner might want to list and he was lovely.

                        RR- I love that guy he just strike me as something I would love to ride.

                        Navy's owner asked me to take her off since she ran well. He said that someone from here has first rights to her when she is done running and is ready to be a broodmare.

                          If I was looking SOLEY for myself age wouldn't really put me off. Alas, I've already got one retired mare, another 13 year old that I'm still eventing (i bought her as an 11 year old), and a 6 yr old QH mare I've GOT to sell (i'm having a hard time thinking about that), and my husband's rope horse.

                          anything new I bring home as a project has got to scream RESALE!!!

                          he is yummy! pretty nice pedigree to boot. 5 phalaris to 28 NON phalaris lines.

                          hmm....maybe i need to rethink this one?

                          can someone help bring him closer to TN??

                            thank you for that info jleeg. I spoke to the trainer on the weekend, and he did say that she was going to run on Monday, and that someone else had first dibs on her.
                            I'm glad she did well for him, but I am disappointed. That is a beautiful filly.
                            Thank you for bringing her to our attention jlee.

                            Maybe *somebody* is trying to tell me I don't need another mare.......

                              He did tell me you were first in line so I will be sure to keep in touch with him and let you know when I find out. I joke around with the trainers because in many cases they list the horses with us and then they start running well. They take them off the listings and a few weeks later they might go back up on the listings.

                                  Fred, I missed this thread early on. Now the listing seems to be gone from the CANTER site, which is to be expected.

                                  Is this the 2001 or 2006 Navy, or does she have more to her name than just Navy? I'm trying to figure out why her pedigree would be attractive to you as a match for AFR.

                                  Personally, if I were a sport horse breeder, I'd kill for the 2001 Navy, but she is German and seems never to have imported.

                                  You can PM if you'd rather.

                                      Navy has been hanging out at my farm waiting for her trip north. I keep telling her she better grow some hair fast.
                                      These are her pics:

                                      She is a big girl for a 3yr and I believe she has some growing left to do.

                                      V- she is the 2006 version.

                                        WOW! for Navy. Congrats Fred. So fun to watch these guys and gals get a home.

                                        I actually bought a canter filly in Jan 2008 that the board had quite a bit of interest in. She has gone on to a lovely home on the local hunter circuit with a teenage girl who thinks the sun rises and sets upon her. Her JC name is Mrs. Capp. Here is the link to her photo from Canter.

                                        http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...&id=1291895370

                                        She ended up being a 9 mover (both as a hunter and dressage horse) and has a super temperament and good jump. She is brave and has a huge stride. Would have been a very nice eventer. She is about 15.3 and very petite, otherwise I would have kept her for myself. She was a bit hard to place because of her size and the economy tanked just as she was looking for a home, but she is such a fabulous mare that eventually we found her something. Sorry for the hijack. It just suddenly occurred to me to update.
