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!

      Good choice. Suprise Inside, Gypsy Trance and Rexy's Honey Bear were my picks on conformation.

        I hope this link works, if you want a 16.2 1/2 h to die for mare plus a ride to TX contact this trainer. There is someone @ CT who goes to TX monthly could make you a package deal

            Go Get him!!!! This time of year, these horses need to be moved FAST! Cold weather is comming very soon and the northern tracks close down, forcing trainers to move elsewhere. they dont want to take these horses with them.

            Even though his price is what is listed; call the trainers! Ask them what their rock bottom price is and you're very interested. Some of these trainers can also help out on a shipping situation. It only takes a phone call and its always worth calling just to ask...just tell them you're seriously interested in the horse but the price and shipping price combined could be a bit steep.

            this track isnt far from New holland and i know a lot of people wont admit it but a lot of the horses from this track at this time of year, who cant find homes, somehow, either way, find their way to the auction circuit.

            please im begging you to call....HE WOULD LOOK LOVELY IN YOUR BARN!!!

                    Make an offer....I have a friend that went to Suffolk last year at the end of the meet. She bought a couple of horses, and at the last minute there was a grey she liked that was listed for $3999. She asked the trainer if she made a low ball offer if he would be offended. He asked what it was. She offered $500 Trainer accepted Not every trainer will accept an offer that low, but they're willing to negotiate!!

                      Why do so few of the Mid-Atlantic listings have names?

                        A lot of trainers dont really give out reg names. With that many horses being listed every week; it becomes a lot to keep track of. The last thing i think they want to happen is to accidentally confuse names and then have people look up the wrong stuff on the wrong horse. Its much easier to read the description and call and talk with the trainer and then ask for the reg. name. Ive tagged a long with CANTER and most will give out barn names if they have them. Other times the grooms are the only ones around and they dont know the reg. names.

                          AFAIK, almost all the horses on the Finger Lakes board are listed by registered name.

                          If Lucky to Cope weren't headed my way (likely hitching a ride with Western Buff and Rockywithanattiude as far as Michigan) I would be very tempted by Karakorum Patriot. Some nice old campaigners at Finger Lakes.

                            I really really really like Rock and Roll Roan, thank god he isn't on the west coast!!

                            I wish I could afford to buy another horse, let alone afford the upkeep. =( I knew I shouldn't have looked at these ads!

                            Somebody get him so I can live vicariously. =)

                              I also adored Rock and Roll Roan. If I could have a horse... I would have him!

                                I think someone in the thread on Off-Course is calling on Rock and Roll Roan. He IS lovely, isn't he?

                                There's a hauler taking Lucky to Cope, Western Buff, and Rockywithanattiude on Monday....I think he has a five-horse and he's headed to Colorado with at least one drop-off on the way. I think he's got room for at least one more...

                                  Because a lot of these horses are still being entered to race, and listings online saying "slow" could affect the betting (which the powers that be don't love). As a result back in the day track management would tell people to remove horses they saw on the listings. So it's a policy at Charles Town that we don't list the names of horses still actively racing there.

                                  If they are on the farm or the trainer says to, we'll put a name up.

                                  (and often the photos are labelled by name so if you open the large versions and go to the photo properties you can figure it out )
                                  "smile a lot can let us ride happy,it is good thing"

                                    We've not had the issue of registered names come up at Finger Lakes... funny - I'd not even though in terms of descriptions affecting the betting odds .

                                    I wanted to point out that although there are indeed urgent needs horses at Finger Lakes many of the owner/trainers do have a home farm to take their horses to so the end of the meet doesn't necessarily mean the end of the horse.

                                    We'll certainly update you on extreme urgent cases when we hear of them... and naturally the trainers would like to move their horses so if you are interested please do call.

                                    Thanks so much for all of your interest in the Thoroughbreds at CANTER and FingerLakes looking for new homes and careers.

                                      I usually post on the off-course or racing forums, but lurk a lot here. I'm a volunteer with the Finger Lakes Trainer's Listings and am familiar with many of the horses listed because I've worked on the backside for many years.

                                      Karakorum Patriot is a classy, solid, iron horse. Nuff said!

                                      Rock and Roll Roan is a gorgeous horse, full of personality and was my DIL's favorite gallop in the morning. Beautiful movement, very forward and....priced high (I'm hearing $4,000).

                                      Somewhereinbetween is STILL available and would make a sound, quiet, willing little children's h/j. She's very sweet and just not into racing anymore.

                                      How about Hillbilly Deluxe?? That guy is imposingly big and still has some growing to do. Fortunately, he's quiet and sensible, at least he was when we were trying to get him to square up for photos. This guy should be appealing to someone looking for a really big horse.

                                      I can go on and on. How many of you would be willing to hitch up the trailer and just show up at the track on any given day in the next couple of weeks? Volunteers from the Trainer's Listings will avail themselves to escort you around the backside and chances are you'll make some deals.

                                      Contact either me, Louise or Maunder and we'll make every effort to work with you. As Maunder said, not all of these horses are in peril, but some of them are.

                                        Based on my experiences this year, I have gotten 3 off the track or farm; all for a lot less then the asking prices (mine were in this order: Free, 500.00 and 700.00)

                                        So, make an offer! These horses have to go to new homes asap.
