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!

  • Need to find out who the owner/trainer is for Bedazzled (large pony hunter)

    I saw him at a few shows and am trying to get in touch with them. Thanks for the 411.

    There are 2 registered with USEF. Both greys, the gelding is listed as grey roan and owned by Donald and Taylor Potter in NC. The other is a dappled grey, but a mare, owned by Rachel Redmond in MI.

      I believe the announcer said Taylor but cant remember the last name. I have searching the web and cant find much on him. Where did you find that info so fast? I know he is with a sale barn in upstate NY but received the run around when I asked about leasing him. The sale price also has changed a couple of times so I am aprehensive on going through the sale barn. I am trying to figure out how to get in touch with the owners or the owners trainer.

        If you go to USEF's website there are a few searches you can run, including horse recording search. Type in a name and there you go! There are several Bedazzleds, but only 2 of them were larges. I'm in NC as well, but don't know the owners. The one of them is listed as living in Charlotte and I can't remember where Taylor Potter is listed as living.

            Taylor Potter doesn't ride anymore thats why Nick is being sold. I believe he is at Bay Ridge Farm in New York. I can't get their website to pull up.

              Not sure where Nick is these days, but I have always admired Nick. MC did a wonderful job bringing Bedazzled along as a youngster.
              What a lucky kid to have Mom track him down for a lease!
              Good luck in your search!

                I believe it is Bayridge Farm in Poughkeepsie.

                  The trainer at Bayridge Farm turned down my very generous lease to buy offer and changed his price several times. It is a sale barn and from what I could find out they have the pony to sell for someone else and dont own it. I don't think my offer was ever even presented to the owner or trainer. HELP!

                    I found two Donald Potter's living near Charlotte, NC. Taylor is listed in Matthews, which is also near Charlotte. If worse comes to worse, you could call each of the Donald's and ask if they have a large gray pony for sale I'll PM you with the address and phone numbers I found. Good luck!

                      Most of the time when an owner sends a horse to a sale barn it is because they don't want to deal with the buyers and all the drama. I would be careful trying to be Robin Hood here. Call the agent and express your concerns about perhaps the offer not being presented. Often a seller has NO interest in a lease/option, or does not like the situation that you have for the pony ( ie. beginner rider, unknown or incompetant trainer, poor location,etc.) By bypassing the agent you may end up in a worse position than you started. They are most likely operating under orders of the sellers wishes.

                        The fact is, however, that a dishonest sale barn happens a LOT more than most people care to think. It can't hurt to contact the owner and say hey look I offered x for the pony and was turned down, wondering if there's anyway we could negotiate and figured it would be easier to do so directly. She might piss off the sale barn, but if she has no other connections to them otherwise - what does it hurt? And if they ARE being devious about it, the owner deserves to know. If the owner really did already hear about the offer and say no thanks, they can tell the OP that and either say - we'll accept your offer if you do this x y and z as well or no thanks we're not interested in negotiating.

                            Bedazzled is a fabulous pony. My daughter has shown him a few times & just loves him. He has done very well this year & just gets better every time out. If his price has increased it would not be a suprise. If I had the money he would belong to my kid.

                              I am the trainer you are talking about turning down your offer. I have never spoken to you and you have never offered anything on the pony Bedazzled. You were in contact with a partner of mine since June 24 and you were offered to try the pony and refused and have known all along where the pony was, thus misleading all of these people on this thread. I have presented lease to purchase offers to the owner and they were turned down - his exact words were "sounds like a payment plan to me". The pony's price has NEVER changed and in fact the price your friend quoted you was more than the price we are asking! Maybe if you spoke to me directly you would know this. I have emails from my partner and ponymom67 to prove what I am saying is true! Some trainers are trust worthy! And my sale business is reputable with a proven record.

                                  I am not the only one who was told different prices. I did email a breeder of another pony who showed with him when your website wouldnt come up mysteriously and I also have the emails to CA. People have been very kind to PM me with contact information on Bedazzled and I do thank everyone for their help. I am not interested in bantering with you and am only interested in presenting my offer in writing to the owner.
