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!

  • Finger Lakes Finest - A Relist

    I'm starting a new thread, and asking Moderator 1 to close the old Finger Lakes thread, because I want to make sure that we have a shorter thread to navigate as the season winds down. Hopefully, it will be easier for people to find references to horses that they are interested in, this way.

    The first four horses for the week are up. We had two teams on the backside, and will continue to do the same for the month of November. Go take a look at the beautiful bay hotties that are now listed. Those from the other team will be listed as soon as they are ready.

      I used to track Malibu Dream when he was at Suffolk. Lovely looking guy, and the breeding to excel in sport!
      Can't believe Keen Impact hasn't been snapped up yet...

        Lots of beautiful horses still on the backside. I do hope the ladies of Finger Lakes can get a ton more sold.

        I'm not saying let's go kill all the stupid people...I'm just saying let's remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.

          Love Keen Impact, and a few more! If I had the space, I'd be in a buying frenzy.

            If you are interested in Double Sec, call the trainer and make an offer. It can't hurt; many will come down from their asking price!

              Bella Daze is beautiful... looks like could be a very nice dressage horse, or of course, an eventer!! Definitely built with rear end power to sit for dressage

                I just came home from a hunter pace at Batzing's Farm in Avon, NY and guess who was there? None other than Finger Lake's Finest Leola's Memory, currently listed with a ribbon because she's done this before and done it well! http://fltrainerlist.proboards.com/i...ay&thread=1522

                What a cutie pie! If you want a Finest who has already had some training, check out Leola.

                  She's adorable! And how cool that she's already had some retraining.

                  I love Double Sec too....

                      I'm still sighing over Small Potatoes.

                      Too bad I had a nasty run of vet bills recently, or I'd be picking up the phone!

                        Of course Small Potatoes is one I'd fall in love with, she looks awesome, I even dig her name!

                        I have to say I'm suprised no one had snapped up Eastern Prime. LOVE Eastern Echo as an eventing or jumping sire, I galloped a few of his babies that were steeplechase horses and also owned one, they all jumped with knees up to thier eye balls and were all laid back, big, kind, and neat horses. I love his babies and haven't owned one or sat on one I didn't like!

                        Those two would be my picks. Too bad (LOL or luckily) I'm not looking!

                            I really like Bella Daze. Wish I could justify one more this season.

                              I've been thinking about something a lot lately, and I want to pass it by all of you, to get your thoughts and ideas.

                              We work very hard, to try and identify horses that need to be placed quickly, lest they fall through the cracks. I think that we do a pretty good job in getting that done. But, I have been thinking lately about the good trainers, the ones who take good care of their horses and who would never let them get into dangerous positions. Are we unfairly ignoring them?

                              Take the trainer of Small Potatoes http://fltrainerlist.proboards.com/i...ay&thread=1430 and Regally Jen http://fltrainerlist.proboards.com/i...ay&thread=1432 He's a good guy, who takes good care of his horses. He's well liked on the backside, and he has always been ready to step up to offer us a place for a horse to stay for a few days, while waiting for transportation. He's not rich, and I think he struggles to maintain his horses well. He always looks a little bit tired, and I'm sure that he really needs to find new homes for a couple of his charges.

                              Yet, his horses languish on the Listings while we worry about this horse or that horse who need homes quickly. And, he's not the only one. There are many of these good trainers at Finger Lakes. People who just want their horses to find good homes, with loving people. What do we do about them?

                              I don't have any answers. I feel the urgency to get needy horses to safety, for sure. I just want the good guys to find homes for their horses too, once in a while.
                              If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.

                                the problem is in this economy, it is just too expensive to keep a horse anymore. I know three years ago I could have taken one or two, now I am about to be living in my truck, thinking about owning a horse is unimaginable.

                                  Louise, I totally get what you are saying and I think it is important to give some attention to the "good guys" and their horses. It is easy to focus on the ones that need to go fast, but as you said, what about the decent trainers who take good care of their animals, and who are waiting patiently to sell them rather than liquidate them quickly....

                                  On another note, anyone have any info on Five Blessings or seen him in person? Feel free to PM... a friend of mine is very interested.

                                    That trainer is THE BEST!! He was beyond wonderful when I got my horses and they needed to be warehoused before coming south. He went to the track, picked them up, took them to his farm, boarded them for a few days (week?), and made sure they caught the bus for the trip south. All that for a nominal fee.

                                    Everytime I talked to him, I could tell - he's just a nice guy.... I'd like to help the good ones like him too. I'll be thinking about it, but you're closer to things; if you think of something we can do, please let us know.
                                    Y'all ain't right!

                                      If I could take Regally Jen without risking divorce, she'd be on her way to MD tomorrow. That mare has a beautiful shoulder and is perfect for a small junior hunter.

                                      ETA: Louise, I did add the link to the FL trainier listings to my FB page in the hopes that some of the locals I'm in touch with are looking.
