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!

  • Holy smokes....AD is gorgeous and exactly what I would want in a hunter prospect. If I had the room and the 4k I would snatch him up in a heartbeat! He looks like such a friendly guy and looks to move very, very nicely. And that belly spot......*drool*

        • Scam Alert

          I posted this on facebook but want to post it over here also to give everyone a heads up.

          Yesterday I found two sets of trainers' photographs taken from the Finger Lakes Trainers' List and placed on a site that solicits donations. Please know this is a scam! All the work for Finger Lakes Trainers' List is volunteer and we do not accept donations. Again, we are not a 501c3 and we never solicit donations for the horses we list.

          Here's the address of the site with the photos from the trainers' list: http://beautifulwny.com/, and here is the only site address where they should appear: http://fingerlakestracklist.proboards.com/. If you ever see our pictures used in a situation where donations are being solicited, please contact me.

          Assuming someone else is using their name illegally, I notified the board members of Finger Lakes Finest Thoroughbreds Inc about this site. I have not heard back from them but I'm sure they are watching out for their best interests.

          Now, back to our regularly scheduled program -> Thanks Bev for showing off Mount Karakorum. He's a real pet and someone will be very happy with him, I'm sure!

            Not the case and not a hoax. We are working on developing a website to be debuted later once all of our ducks are in a row. That is why the odd url - wasn't meant for public consumption yet.

            Be back with more details later.

                Uh oh, "KB" -- you are starting to lust after Finger Lakes Finests! I will be happy to enable you any time -- as you know from having ridden my Tilly girl, there are wonderful horses to be found at Finger Lakes.
                Speaking of Finest ladies, such a happy story to share from this past weekend. On Sunday, I went to ride Tilly, and there happily settled in and already loving life was Sandy Castle! I had seen her trainer on Saturday morning, and he told me she was going there that afternoon -- but the woman who now owns her and her farm owner/trainer have been trying to pry this lovely mare off the track since they first saw her last November, so I had to see her with my own eyes to finally believe the great news. Three Finest mares in a row in this lovely barn-- Tilly, One Classy Lady, and now Sandy. I was glad I had brought a whole bag of carrots with me, and I appreciated Tilly's willingness to share with her new friends. Lucky girls! Lucky barn!
                At my Saturday track visit I also was informed that a few more listed horses have found great homes: the gorgeous gray Wolfgang and his stablemate Wildest Passion. Their trainer was so grateful for our Finger Lakes Finest Thoroughbreds Trainer Listing service, and thanked me profusely for how we help the horses find new homes. Aw shucks -- made my day!

                    I absolutely love that horse and would have taken him home long ago had I not taken a bowed mare who needed care asap.

                    Call me if you have questions (my number and email address are on the Trainers' List site) and also if you go to look at him ask Luis if you may speak with his vet, my fave, Brenden Warrell.

                    • Agree--Nicoletti is one of my faves too. MKV you should go look at him!

                          I can't wait to get out to the barn to see the "Finest Fillies" as I am going to refer to them until we get a gelding out there haha. I was so excited to hear about One Classy Lady!

                          You are definitely right that I have been eyeing a lot of the TB's on the site too. All of the OTTB specific divisions at the events this year have increased my desire to own one again.

                                • I had a dream last night that I went to a local track (there aren't any-I'm in Western NC) with a trailer, wandered the backside until I found a chestnut gelding who I knew nothing about, but he was clearly a war horse. I then found his trainer, offered him some cash, and brought him home. DH (in the dream) was surprisingly cool with it. Went something along the lines of "Hey Mr. sparky6, I was at the track today and got this guy. I couldn't help it-he needed me." and his response was pretty much "oh...well ok then."

                                  But here's the really weird part (as if the reaction of DH wasn't weird enough ). The horse I brought home was named Relatively Ready. Clearly the one from last season's listings is not a chestnut, but when I woke up I distinctly remembered the name and Googled until I figured out where on earth that came from. (I haven't looked at his listing since it was posted)

                                  So the point of all that rambling back story was bump. And a little plug for him. He's still racing-ran a couple of days ago, in fact. Same trainer. He really is a handsome guy:

                                  http://fingerlakestracklist.proboard...lay&thread=444

                                  Not sure why his name was in my dream. Sadly DH will need more convincing than what it took in my dream. I've started planting the seeds, but at the moment all I can do is enable someone else to bring him home. He's too far away for me to be sneaky and show up at the track with a trailer!

                                    I really like this horse. One of my horses has vision in only one eye and you would never know. She jumps fabulously, is not spooky, and you can easily work around her on her blind side. I would not hesitate to buy another horse with only one good eye. My mare is one of a kind and people are all the more impressed with her once they find out that she is completely blind in the right eye (and wasn't started under saddle until age 12). Someone will be very lucky to own Relatively Ready. Wish I had the time for another horse and more room at our farm.

                                      Our website is live!!!

                                      There are some beautiful horses and now you can see their head shot with their descriptions!! Click on the "read more" and you get a gallery of the rest of the shots. To go to another page, just click on "older posts".

                                      Some of it is still "under construction" but the important stuff is there. We have a backlog of horses to "re-post" but put the some new ones up and will have six more up this evening.

                                      Videos work much better on this platform as well.

                                      A big shout out to "Boys Night Out" for her photographer. The photo credit goes to her photographer - Robin Fox Photography. I just have to figure out how to put that in. It fits perfectly with the tag line we chose.

                                        • http://fingerlakesfinesttbs.com is a totally different list of horses.
                                          Are there separate groups taking/posting listings?
