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!

  • VERY Nice BIG Warmblood on Broker Lot-New videos and info posted!!!

    Saw this guys and thought to post it here!

    AC4H just listed a bay, very tall warmblood gelding who is quite the looker. Great head, neck and eye on this guy and hes got a great build overall. This is one of those cases that i think sadly relates to my warmblood i found at the auction. They want $800 for him, hoping someone can snatch him up here. He looks young and like a great little project. Looks like he needs his feet done but other than that he appears sound to me.

    He is now on page 2 of the broker listings.

    hes definitely a cutie! I wish they would give a little more info on the website though...


    • Original Poster

      there will be more info posted as well as probably a video. they were just posted not long ago and they are still working on uploading more horses. If you have any questions about the horse PLEASE email AC4H. They viewed this horse, watched him go, and could tell you quite a bit about what they saw. From Ac4H's word, the broker's are currently "Cleaning house" and dumping horses on their property so any little bit could help for these horses. theres not much hope after a week of being listed.

        I can't see this horse, has it been taken?


        • #5
          Oh he is a beauty......... if only I had the ability to take in another one......


          • Original Poster

            No he has not been taken, his ad was just moved to page 2!!! VIDEOS HAVE ALSO BEEN TAKEN!


            • #7
              gah!! I wish I was in a position right now to buy because he looks like an upstanding citizen. Someone grab him quick!

                My WB Cloudy is going to send some $ right now to save that TB that Christy is trying to save and to try to save this WB.


                • Original Poster

                  Thanks Cloudy! Thats fantastic! I really hope they both grab homes. Like i said; they very rarely have good feet in the pictures because they are obviously not very well looked after most of the time. Most need a good shoe job and their feet looked at and im sure they'll move a lto better.

                  it would surprise me if a horse came down with something as simple as an abcess and went lame because if it; causing folks to dump that at the auction thinking the horse is dead lame and not worth keeping it anymore. it wouldnt surprise me at this point.

                  Hoping someone can grab these guys. they look lovely and i can only imagine what theyd look like with some weight/muscle and a nice cleaning.

                    Really considering taking in the little bay pony at the top of page one. It may be a great way to educate my students about the dangers that lurk for un-wanted un-trained horses by watching this little guy come along and having an actual face that they know to put to the issue, as all the majority of them ever see is my well trained, spoiled and greatly loved lesson horse crew, and the shiny and polished horses at the shows we go to. It looks as though he has a great disposition and in time, training, and some boy related "modifications" may turn out to be great little guy. Thoughts? Kinda nervous about bringing one home that I have never seen, touched, and handled, as I have never done it before... but there is something about this little guy... If I don't snag him I hope somebody really great does.


                    • Original Poster

                      YAY!!! i have been pushing to get someone to take that bay pony. hes a total ham isnt he??!!! I think he could be very nice with some muscle/TLC! Someone already offered to pay for him; he just needs a place to go! Hes been up there for 2 weeks so his time is running very short.

                      I think hes a very honest, quiet pony who is going to make someone a great little project. if you have any questions, please conact AC4H as soon as possible. they took his video and his photos and could tell you what they saw. For that price; if i had the time right now (im a full time college student and 9 horses at home), i would snag him in a heartbeat; i even have a stall open but i cant take another right now due to my lack of time.

                      I think hes going to be a very easy project. best of luck to you trinity; i really hope you grab him and what a great way to get the lesson kids involved!!!!

                        I also wanted to point out this TB at finger lakes in NY> The track closes on saturday and these horses have absolutely nowhere to go! He has been reduced to $500 but i bet you can get him for better than that. I really really like the look of this guy, really well built with a great head, neck and topline on him. he also has great feet and his legs look great!

                        He does have an old scar on his right hind from when he was a baby but the trainer said he has been sound on it. He's 4 years old and hes been fine on it this long. Im sure a career that is less demanding than racing would be a lot better for him anyways. He's adorable and i think hed make someone a really really nice project. if this horse does not have a home by sat. who knows what will happen!


                        I also really liked this guy too. He's a stunningly well built horse with great look legs and solid looking feet. Even though it says he's a cribber, most racehorses devlop this habit from being cooped up in stalls all the time. once he's back in turnout all day im sure the habit will diminish with time. Hes really quite the looker. Asking $750

                          Can someone post a link, I can't seem to find him. Thx!

                            farmgirl88--just to clarify, not ALL the horses at Finger Lakes are homeless if they aren't sold. Some will go to trainers' farms to winter over, others go to other tracks and will keep running until someone buys them. Some do get sold for shipment to PR, but not all the FL horses are in immediate danger for their lives. They're listed for sale because they aren't really earning their keep any more. It would be great if someone buys them (especially Take Me Flying--seriously, no one has snapped him up for a Children's hunter or a small adult yet? LOOK AT THAT FACE!) but not all are in instant danger.

                            Meanwhile the AC4H horses ARE in immediate danger. If I had a farm, I could see a couple of those coming to live with me...

                              Where are those horses located? Are they all in PA? That horse looks very cute but I can't watcht the video at work. Someone get him so I don't have to try and find a way to bring him here.

                                All of the broker listing horses are in PA>

                                They can be found at www.ac4h.com
                                then go to the broker listings on the left. the wamrblood is on pg 2 but he might've been moved to another page if they added more horses.

                                  Don't worry about the WB's feet, they all require farrier work and supps. WBs are "very delicate" aka wussies, so you must pay farriers and do a lot of maintenance to get the jump and the floating trot. It is worth all the work, btw!

                                  Someone save the WB and the ponies, and as many as can be saved. I don't know how Christy and all the others do what they do, they are great to try to save them all.

                                    yes the majority of the horses seen on the broker listings (Frm what i have noticed) have been neglected in the shoeing/farrier work dept. heres hoping to find some homes for these guys this week!

                                        Don't mean to rain on a tall, $800 jumping WBs parade, but I'm not sure about the comment about farrier work.

                                        He looks to me like he toes in something fierce. Do you guys see that or am I wrong?

                                        His front end over the fence looks nice enough.
