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!

  • On-line kids consignment clothes?

    I'm keeping an eye on eBay, but wondered - are there any good online sites that have used or consignment kids show clothes? DD has outgrown everything!

    Not online, but....

    Do you live near enough to any other show barns to be able to stop by? I think a lot of barns have an in-barn consignment shelf, and right after Christmas should be a good time. Call around and ask if they have anything.

    Or are there any winter shows coming up that you go to? There's one at White Fox Manor in Overland Park on 1/23-1/24. If that's not too far away, come Saturday morning and ask the office if you could post a "kids clothing wanted" sign on their bulletin board. List all desired items/sizes with tear-off tags giving your phone number. Some bigger kid who just got new stuff for Christmas might be very happy to sell.

        I've been getting alot of my DD's things from eBay lately and have had OK luck. I can't always find what I need exactly when I need it but so far it has worked out. Also, Beval will be having their big sale in February, I usually do well there. There is also a consignment store in Wellington, but I can't remember the name.

        What sizes are you looking for? I wonder if anything we've outgrown will suit your DD.....

          We had talked about going to the show at WFM - I would love to take my new boy - but I'm not sure if my trainer will be in town that weekend or not. I haven't checked with any of the other barns yet - but we do usually have a "used tack" sale at our March show, too. I'll have to see what there is.

            I've been selling my daughters' outgrown stuff on ebay and doing well. You need to be persistent in looking for stuff but it's out there. Jackets are really cheap on ebay!

            I have heard that Middleburg Tack Exchange have a great consignment section.

            PM, the year I was spectating at WEF, the consignment store was closing and moving to Aiken I believe.

              Middleburg Tack Exchange is entirely consignment/overstocks. They do have a decent children's section.

                I knew that at some point. Thanks for the correction.

                  Actually, the more I think about it - if you're going to be in KC anytime this month, call WFM and ask about putting up a sign right now. You really want it on the bulletin board Friday night before the show, when several barns come in to school - and the parents, who have outgrown clothes in the closet, are standing around looking at the bulletin board because there's not much else for them to do.

                  I don't think we're showing - DH has a prior obligation that weekend, and MyLittlePony has one of those wonderful mystery lameness things (stifle? growth spurt? back pain? vet is throwing darts at the dartboard, I think). So I'm probably out of it too.

                  The problem with waiting until March is that some of the nicest stuff will have been sold by then. And, of course, if your DD wants to WEAR it at the show, it's hard to BUY it at the show.

                    Am I missing the clothes part of Middleburg's website? All I could find was saddles listed.

                      Used kids' riding clothes

                      Our barn has a lot of gently used, high quality kids' show clothes, etc (and even a Beval saddle size 14 1/2) from size 6-16. I was going to start listing it on eBay but have not had the time. Just let me know what you are looking for and I will provide you with descriptions, send photos, etc.

                            In the Chicagoland Area- Second Round in Barrington

                            If you are in the Chicagoland area, you can go to Second Round in Barrington to buy and sell!

                            It is on Rt 59 in Barrington, right by the train tracks... Note that Rt 59 in Barrington is called "Hough Street" and Rt 59 has exits on both 88 to the far south and 90 to the south. They are just around the corner from Lake Cook Road and Northwest Highway (rt14). If you are at Barrington Saddlery or Saddlers Row you are no more than 10-15 minutes away fronm Second Round from either of those. Their number is 847-304-8084.

                            You have to go often and check on what is in at any given time... it's a good excuse for me to take the drive and look for some good deals and then have a french dip sandwich at Chessies!
