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!

  • Wanted: Fancy Young Tb Prospect

    I don't want to get in trouble for this being a wanted ad.... this is just generally more of a, "where should I start looking," thread. I had the pleasure of riding some great Tbs when I was a junior, and I would like to make one up to do the PreGreens/TB divisions in the coming years.

    I live in Ct and am open to traveling up to 3 hours away to look at horses.
    Preferences: 16.1+ (I'm tall), gelding, good moving, good mind.

    So, aside from CANTER & Fingerlakes Finest, any ideas for me? Are there any great small farms in my area that restart TBs to sell them on?
    Thanks!

    What is your price range? Are you looking for something pretty green to make-up, or something already restarted that just needs some polish?

      Pat Dale @ Three Plain Bays does a wonderful job finding high quality OTTB's and putting the basics on them. She always has new ones coming in, let her know what you are looking for. She is in Conowingo, MD and I believe posts on here. A good friend of mine purchased on through her last summer and he is lovely winning at the rated shows!

      I know it's a out of your 3 hour range, but her tb's are always worth a look!

        Thanks- green as grass is fine by me. I have time & patience. That said, I'm more than willing to spend more if it has already been restarted or is very fancy. I have a very reasonable budget and will wait for the right quality animal. Thanks!

            I recently bought a horse from Pat and it was a very good experience. The horses were as represented, and she actually had 4 that were what I was looking for.

            I drove there- 8 hours one way with the trailer- and it was well worth it.

              You can try Dreamhorse.com, and OTTB second chance/adoption foundations. You sound like you are ready to bring along a green horse so you should be able to find quite a few prospects.

                I think New Vocations does a brilliant job with their horses, and they get some really lovely ones in as well. They have 3 facilities, I think---one in OH, one in Lexington, and I forget where the third one is. You can also try RERUN (they have facilities in NY, one of the Carolinas, etc) and CANTER. Between those three, you should be able to find what you're looking for

                  Peter Foley has a client in his barn who has won some major accolades in the adult hunters with a full TB. I'd find out who bred that horse because I seem to recall reading an article that those folks breed TB's for H/J. (don't remember their name though)

                    I also have nothing but great things to say about Pat. I purchased a lovely colt from her in Oct and another gelding in November. They both are exactly how she represented them and couldn't have made the buying process any easier.

                    She had the vet there to meet me, vetted out and put him on the trailer and made the long trip home!

                    She actually has some really lovely ones right now!!

                          I have been drooling over that gray gelding for a while now. I wish I had room in the barn!

                            There's a lady in NJ who has a lovely 17.1 mare OTTB. If I hadn't been given my gelding she would have been mine. MEssage me and I can forward you her info. She had a couple others as well but this mare had "it".

                                Let me second (third?) Tebogo. They have some beautiful, fancy horses and do a great job with training and showing.

                                You can also get in touch with jleegriffith here on CoTH -- she does retraining work for CANTER MA and always has nice horses at her place.

                                I've heard nothing but great things about both of them.

                                  A fourth for Tebogo. Great horses. Wish I had the money for a second Tebogo alumni! The people are super, as well.

                                    a fifth for Tebogo. Page, their trainer, is my former journalism student. She was one of my best writers in 10 years of teaching, and her riding skills are equal to her writing skills. She does a lovely job with the horses, and she is a delightful young woman.

                                        There are a couple of gorgeous TBs with New Vocations right now. I have been sharing (and admiring) them on FB.
                                        Beautiful.
                                        Best of luck, I'm glad to see you looking for a Thoroughbred.
