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!

    I know of a horse in need of attention in the Paxton, MA area. He's not perfect but he's not horrible. COuld use some more TLC. Email me if you are interested in more details.

      I have a horse in need of attention in the Keene, NH area! Southwest NH, not too far from Vermont!
      Grab mane and kick on!

        I'll try again, too.

        I'm a horseless rider looking for a horse east of Toronto, Canada. Willing to travel up to 45 min. Any discipline. I've ridden for 12 years (I event, but do the h/j schooling shows too). Let me know!!

          This thread is great! As a result of the last thread like this I found my mare a wonderful home with a horse-less rider!


          • #45
            I didn't do this on the other thread because there are so few posters in my area but what harm can it do?
            I wouldn't mind some more saddle time if someone has a horse who needs it in DE (Kent or Sussex Counties) or MD (probably Caroline, Dorchester, Talbot, Wicomico...)
            I have my own horse, but lately I've been riding by myself, and I miss the company of other horse people. It would be great if someone who has more horses than time would like a riding companion. Unfortunately, I do work days M-F, but might be able to ride early evenings (if/when we have enough daylight) and weekends.

              Hey Guys- Sorry I am a little checking the thread!

              I posted an update on the thread I originated. And for sake of repetition, will just link that one here (if that's Ok)



              • #47
                Ah what the heck, I'll try again. I came close-ish last time.

                Manitoba, Canada-Live out of Winnipeg, kinda near Misty River area.

                I ride western. But have done basic english. Will be taking english lessons this spring to help me improve. I'm willing to do anything horse related. I love mucking stalls oddly enough. And I wouldn't mind having a horse just to groom. I am willing to drive about 45 minutes, maybe a little over. Hrm, what else to include. I'm 17, riding since I was 8 (6 if you include my first ride ever ).

                PT me any questions! Thankies!

                  Second try.

                  Nice TB mare could use some extra schooling until she sells in Hunterdon NJ. Just needs to keep busy on the flat and some work over lowerish fences. Outdoor ring/private barn.

                  Also in April will have two preggers PMU mares to love on and help with foaling watch and handling the babes. Anyone interested?

                    LOL move closer to MD and you couldn't get enough of me!

                    I hope you find someone! I LOVE foals, I can't wait till I get old (that is when my partner deems I can stop training and start breeding LOL) So that I can live out the rest of life with all those foals!

                    Good Luck!

                            Anyone in Central Mass area (i.e. Uxbridge/Mendon/Upton/Milford) looking for something to ride?

                            I have a gorgeous OTTB, who is a wonderful horse, that I hate to see NOT exercised regularly. If you're interested, email me.

                              I am an experienced rider in Northern Virginia. I am willing to get on any horse. I currently ride two big stupid horses that are 17.2 and 18 hands respectivly. I also ride a 15.2 hand TB mare. I am still young and unafraid and will take on greenies.

                              Common sense is the least common thing in the world.

                                  I have a horse looking to be leased. He's a semi retired prelim event horse who would love to take a kid BN, N, or T. He's 16 this year and is ready to teach someone all that he knows! I'd really like to be able to keep him going, but with school and a young wipper-snapper coming along behind him, I'm not sure how much time or $$ I'll have. He's super talented, really quite, and so sweet!!

                                  He'll be in Elkton, MD starting in February. PT me w/ questions

                                          I'm still looking for a horse in Georgia. Preferably around the metro area, like, Smyrna, Marietta, Woodstock, or Kennesaw.
