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.

  • Sales Barn with "training board" on East Coast?

    Hi- I need to sell/lease my Jumper and am looking for a sales barn on the east coast that will take on a horse on "training" or "consignment" board and help me sell/lease her. Anybody know of any good farms? Any recommendations or information is appreciated! Thanks!

    1. Depends on how much you want to spend on board and fees.
    2. Any specific location/state?
    3. What calibur of a horse are you selling and to what 'market'?
    4. Do you want a barn that will aggressively advertise and sell quickly?

    This is a barn located in South Carolina...they do the local circuit and dabble in a few AA's from time to time. Great reputation and very professional.


    Good Luck!

      Sales barn

      Where is the horse now and what does she do?


      • Original Poster

        Hi- Thanks for the responses! I am ideally looking to spend about $1000 per month. The horse is a 2001 17 .0 hand Holsteiner Mare who has the ability to do Children's Jumpers and Modifieds without a problem. She had a minor soft tissue injury in September 2009 which was treated and healed perfectly but we still turned her out for a year after the initial rehab just to be careful. She is starting to jump again and I am trying to make a plan for her, she has had no complications or problems since the injury in September 2009. She is currently in Eastern Ohio and I am located in Western PA but I am open to suggestions pretty much anywhere on the east coast. When she is ready to be sold I would rather her be at a barn that would sell her quickly and market her aggressively. Thanks!

          In Central-Eastern PA you would definitely be looking at more than $1,000/month on training board. I wasn't specifically looking for a "sales" barn for my horse, but training board with decent trainers starts at around $1,200 out here.

            Okay I mean I am speaking idealistically when it comes down to it I'll spend what I am going to need to spend to get her sold. Thanks!

              What has the horse done since you turned her out following the injury? If you want to sell her quickly, and feel confident that she will hold up to the work, my advice is to get her back in the ring at least a few times in whatever division you think she is suitable for. Otherwise I think a lot of prospective buyers (and professionals asked to represent her) are going to be wary of taking her on.

              In my area it would definitely cost more than $1000 at a decent facility just for board, never mind training... but you could consider perhaps free leasing her to someone who would pay her expenses and get her back in the ring for you, if you did not have the time or resources to do it yourself.

              The fastest way to sell horses like this is to present a recent, successful show record.
              We move pretty fast for some rabid garden snails.

                Yes I totally agree. She is currently starting back to jumping. I am just doing this to get feelers and try to devise a plan. My plan is to bring her back to jumping 3'6 and showing myself or trying to find a short term lease or something then send her to a sale barn. Thanks!

                  look through the florida area...... lots of good barns in ocala (don stewart, bob braswell), tampa (brock clearmont), tallahassee (amy center and janet cawley, rob billings), and jacksonville (chad watridge, robert robold)
