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!

        what about this one.........

        Love, love, love this one. He needs to go before I pick up the phone. I only wonder why the JC has him listed as a gray/roan instead of a bay.

          Oh, I LOVE Prince. He just has *something* about him that really speaks to me... Of course, this is the case with me and CANTER; there's always one...or two...or six.

            I'll play! Course I find a new CANTER crush almost every week, but here are the two who are currently making me want to drop out of school and spend all day playing with ponies...

              My pick is Barracuda, but the word "sound" does not appear in the description and the comment that she is "best-suited to a non-jumping home" suggests the presence of a significant issue. Too bad - she's a lovely mare with a kind face and a reasonable price.

                  Ive seen High Favor, Baracuda Haleigh, and Nina in person. Nina is plain, but cute and sweet, Baracuda was really nice, but High Favor SCREAMS eventer in person. Looks small in the stall but once out has a presence and FABULOUS movement. I almost came home with him. Lucky me found something even better, BUT someone get him! He seems a little spooky at the track but seems he doesn't really want to be. I think he will take to life off the track like a fish in water. He looks the part of an upper level eventer. CLASS horse. GET him GET him.

                    Note Baraccuda's trainer recommends to a **non-jumping home.

                    Mike's filly at CT in person not impressive and sore**

                    Prince is a pricely sum for $4k for a horse you can't try.

                      (Barracuda) A tad bit older doesn't bother me too much, plenty of horses start their event careers at 5/6/7. I just wonder how many starts she had, and if she actually ran for 3 years.

                        Barracuda is still running. She wasn't for sale when I went to look at her bc she was racing really well. That was two weeks ago.

                          you guys are NOT helping me. I'm itching for a baby and these guys aren't helping AT ALL. I REALLY like Buddah...wish she wasn't a girl! I really like her pedigree. She has two lines that I've liked in at least three different horses. And she has a great face (and, as much as I whine about them, I AM a sucker for greys). Too bad/thankfully she's in Ohio!!!

                            I like Ghostly Spirit. She's got the look and a pedigree I like. Would probably make some nice sport horse babies too...

                            Too bad I'm poor.

                              *enabling enabling enabling*... Ohio's just about in the middle of the country, and I bet we have a few generous COTHers who wouldn't mind housing her for a night or two... I mean, where else are you going to find such a cutie with such a pedigree at such a price? She could be a superstar and you're just going to pass her up? You'll be kicking yourself when she goes to Rolex without you!*enabling enabling enabling*

                                If it was September/October (when I'm PLANNING on trying to get a baby), I'd be more willing to be enabled....we'll just see how I feel in a few days...hopefully, I'll be getting around better and less likely to kill time at the computer...she is cute, though, and for whatever reason the name "Buddah" brings back fond childhood memories (of calling my cat "Buddah Belly").

                                  I wish we had a CANTER organisation down here....I'd be buying a new horse every week.

                                  Oh, now that I type that Ive realised that I do buy a new horse every week lol, but having something like canter would make it so much easier to find ex track horses! I love looking at the listings, pity I live so far away!!

                                    Am I off-base or is $4k a little pricey for an OTTB with no off-track training? He's nice, though, no doubt.

                                      No you are correct since you can buy a 3-5 yr old already let down with some restart for $4K and most likely sit on it and see it jump.

                                        FYI: You all might want to check the Racing Forum under the Penn National ongoing Thread and pick out a few trainers names for quick references on Who You Do Not Want To Buy From..

                                        Barracuda Haleig's trainer is one I personally know and buy from. Murray is straight up and tells it the way it should be.
