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!

    Has anyone heard of them? Going to be in KY in the next few weeks looking at horses and came across them on equinenow.
    Also any other suggestions on some nice OTTB? Was going to contact the Secretariat Center, and new vocations as well. Any good contacts?

  • #2
    There was a long running thread over on Eventing??? and none of it was good....do a search for former threads....contact the CANTER KY volunteers and also when the RRTP was in KY for Rolex they had a map and contact sheet for OTTB sellers in area and check regular ad sites like DreamHorse and don't forget Craigs list

              I would be curious as well to know which reputable TB facilities (for lack of a better word) have TBs that they do a little retraining with before moving them on to new homes, and still have reasonable prices.

                    Not sure what area you're from, but Akindale Thoroughbred Rescue just sent a number of adoptables to Aiken. Their info is on their website.

                      Throwing out a big thumbs-up for Secretariat Center. Great people, terrific horses - they know what they're doing and truly care about making the right match. I hope to get a horse from them myself someday. Good luck!

                          Reputable re-sellers that is. Churchill is a reseller but one with a poor reputation. JBRP does have lovely horses who have been well started with a very good pro.
                          CANTER Mid-Atlantic is also very good, as in New Vocations and the Secretariat Center.

                              You can see the horses that are owned by CANTER Mid Atlantic here- http://www.canterusa.org/index.php?o...=48&Itemid=313

                              They all have gotten 3 months or more to just be horses before they even begin their retraining as we believes that allows them to get happy in their minds and bodies. During that time we address feet, teeth and chiro.

                              They all come for retraining where they are well started on the flat, over fences, they go trail riding, they xc school, go to local shows and more.

                              We get to know each horse as an individual so that we know what they want to do in their second careers and what kind of riders they will suit.

                                  CHURCHILL THOROUGHBREDS - GREAT EXPERIANCE. VERY NICE TO WORK WITH

                                  I dont want to get involved with all of this.Although, I had to say something.
                                  I had a wonderful experience and they are very nice people. I think it is sad of the attacks on an organization who does such good work. I know many of their customers. They are vey happy. Churchill Thoroughbreds has stayed in contact and has been very helpful to the customers i know including me.
                                  I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM.
                                  Also, I was told of how the Chronicle is unfair. Read for your self. I wouldnt believe anything you read on this forum.

                                    You do realize that BOTH the links you included are basically just like this forum, right? Random people on the internet putting info out there about a topic. Wouldn't exactly use that as a trustworthy source. I'm glad you had a nice experience with them, but it seems the majority of people have not.

                                      I dont understand how you can say that. They sell all over the country and even do exports. I think it is unlikely that you would know all their customers. I undstand there are some competitors that are trying to hurt them. Anyway, I disagree... goodbye
