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!

  • CANTER cuties Kentucky


    I have to chime in on the above listing. I knew her when she was racing (with a different owner) and she was "on vacation" at the barn I boarded at several years in a row between running at the track.
    This girl is awesome; she was turned out with geldings and sometimes with another mare. We rode her in english tack or bareback in the fields. She self loads and unloads.
    She was barefoot at the farm.
    I don't know why they have a strap around her neck, she does NOT crib.
    Once she knew you, she was an absolute babe to deal with.
    I so wish for her to find a good home, especially after seeing her feet in those pix. Gripes.
    Please someone give Sissy an upgrade.

    But there are other nice KY TB's available:


    Here is one with some spunk !
    Watch his video, LOL.


    And for the gray lovers, this one was also used as a track pony:

    It's just a collar like broodmares have out in the fields. Someone needs to get her to rescue that poor tail!

      If I were in the market, I'd go look at Plymouth Bay today.

        She's cute - she sounds a LOT more attractive in your description than in their description. Based on their description, her adoption fee seems a bit high?


        • #5
          Agreed - that is no cribbing strap, and if it was it certainly would not work being that loose lol! It is just an identification strap that some people use at the farms for broodmares or yearlings (mostly on the big farms).

          She's cute. katyb, a lot of times those fees are negotiable, and it is not an "adoption", it is a sale. CANTER is a listing service for TBs for sale by owners/trainers. Some of the CANTER sites do have CANTER-owned horses that they have rescued and adopt out, but the majority of the horses and the main function of the CANTER sites are to provide a place for trainers to list horses for sale. Kind of a pet peeve of mine when people say they adopted or rescued an OTTB when in fact they PURCHASED a horse for sale, plain and simple...

          No offence to the folks that posted, just clarifying from an owner's prospective.

            Ditto on Plymouth Bay.

            If I were a mare person I'd also look at Lan Lan.

              Got it on the breeding strap. I know the place where she is at and they definitely don't fit in the "fancy" category nor do they have "fields".

              I am sure the owner would be willing to negotiate.

              Here are a couple of pix from when she was at our facility:

                I'm seriously in love with Plymouth Bay. He just screams "fun to ride" to me. Who's going to get him so I can live vicariously?

                    If I had time for another horse I would go get Lucky Forest,I own a Forest Camp daughter and she is such a great horse.She is also the bravest horse I have ever ridden,I have never seen anything that has spooked her.
                    She went on her first trail ride all alone,crossed water wooden bridges,etc and never even blinked.
                    Like him she is full of herself,but once you get in the saddle she is all business and very serious about her job.
                    Like Lucky Forest she is fine boned but she raced for 3 years and retired sound and clean legged.
                    I wish I had time for another horse because I would love another just like her,so please somebody get him!

                        He looks like the spitting image of the gelding I had a lifetime ago....kinda scares me (he was a poopy head)

                          Uggg poor mare. Seriously, OP states how easy she is, self loads, trail rides.. won a fair bit of money...

                          And now she hates men (reading between the lines), has neglected feet (they look painful).. and is residing in a crap hole. Sounds like her current people have been doing a fantasic job ruining a good horse.

                          I hate it when people want $2,000 for a horse, buy can't pony up $50 to trim her feet.

                            Bump for Sissy getting an upgrade. Price is OBO...so price is necessarily going to be what is listed.
