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!

    • A wonderful and busy day at the track yesterday! Two Finger Lakes Finest Trainer Listing volunteers were there to take listings, and we also showed two groups of serious buyers around. One of those buyers had come with trailer and cash in hand, and she snapped up a horse we had just photographed, so he will never go up on the listings. A stunning big chestnut with a gorgeous head, soulful eye, and tons of personality. The lucky Zen Village -- and the lucky Commander Cody who once again stepped up for a Finest! Hooray for all! Just goes to show you -- you had better come to the track with us if you want to get the scoop, and be prepared to fall in love.
      The new group of horses are already previewed on our facebook page, and will be up on the website as soon as possible. http://www.facebook.com/fingerlakesf...oroughbredsinc.

      They are a very fine and particularly beautiful group, and many have excellent athletic potential: Evil's Brother, Liberty's Thunder, Connect with Traz, TG Hero, Mineshaft Tavern, and Helluvanote. More info to come!
      We also got new photos of King's Fez, who the other shoppers greatly admired and agreed he has upper level event potential. These event riders also really liked Evil's Brother, and were equally smitten by Tinian Island. They will have a hard choice! So many wonderful prospects among the Finests at Finger Lakes.

      • Just got done looking at the Finger Lakes Trainers List...some awesome new horses listed..Wonderful horses with tons of appeal. Cant wait to get up there and take a look for myself. Seems to me there are many many horses with tons of potential available this year. So nice to see so many people working so hard to help the horses find fabulous careers after the track.

        • Any chance anyone is making a trip from Finger Lakes to anywhere close to western MA in the near future? I have my eye on a horse, but can't get up there for a few weeks.
          If riding were all blue ribbons and bright lights, I would have quit long ago.

          • Zen Village is such a sweetheart, exactly as his trainer described. I know how lucky I am to be surrounded by these wonderful horses.

            Smooth and Cool is the quietest little guy ever. We took him to his first horse show last weekend, he got off the trailer and was nervous for about 2 minutes, settled right down and didn't even need a lunge before he was going around the schooling ring looking the little hunter he will be someday. He is only 3, so he hasn't jumped yet, but already has a wonderful balanced canter on both leads.

            The first Finest placed for 2012, Stacking the Deck, absolutely loves jumping and has already won a championship at a local horse show, he has auto changes and a very pretty jump.

            I love my Finest, they so easily transition to new careers!

            I will be back to the track MissCapitalSplash, but not to western MA. I'm sure there are plenty of shippers going that way though, so make the call you won't be sorry.

            • I will call today. I bought Hellenic Jet last year. I seem to have a thing for chestnut mares with "hell" in their name because Our Hellen Wheels has stolen my heart. Hellenic Jet is absolutely stunning and starting her career as an event horse.

                I will be driving from Buffalo to Foxorough, MA the weekend of October 6 for a wedding.

                I could do this with a horse trailer in tow and swing by the track on the way...

                (And btw, yes I have care custody and control insurance for trailering.)

                  • We're shipping a horse from Finger Lakes to Maryland. If anyone else is shipping from FL to that area please pm or email me if you need to make shipping arrangements. With two or more horses the cost is $500 per horse. The date is not set in stone, but would be in the next seven days, plenty of time for a visit, ppe and purchase.

                    I love to enable

                    • I still keep coming back to Short Term Vision, though I'm kind of hoping 'negotiable' will turn into 'free'...where my parents' live is one of those places off the usual shipping runs, and I suspect gas and hauling costs have gone way up since I shipped Lucky out in 2009....

                            She last raced at Mountaineer on July 21 under a new trainer and owner. She finished last, so she may be for sale again, or you might have to check out Helluvanote, a new Finest Listing. http://fingerlakesfinesttbs.com/hellevanote/

                              The information you cite based on equibase data does show exactly what you state. However, the reality is she remains in the Ubbink's ownership and is on their farm.

                              The moral of the story is, if you see a horse you like, call the owner/trainer for the most up to date information.

                              • I might be getting my own FLF!! Don't want to jinx myself as there is someone looking in the next hour, but fingers crossed!! He's passed his PPE and my trainer's inspection... not going to get ANY work done in the next 2 hours

                                I'll keep y'all posted!

                                  I will be within an hour an a half of you in four weeks and can bring the horse for $500. ($1/mile loaded and $.50 empty, fully insured)

                                      Heliobrolio!!

                                      What fantastic news, Heliodoro, about your new Finest! Brolio is stunning and a terrific prospect. We are delighted that your shopping trip earlier this week came to such a happy conclusion, and my best wishes that he turns out to be all that you hope. I look forward to seeing him when I come for a fall hunter pace.
                                      Your timing is perfect, because someone else was planning to come on Saturday to look at him. While they may be disappointed, there remain many other fine eventing prospects for them to look at.
                                      Your boarding farm sure is filling up with FL Finests. Now gee, who else from there doesn't yet have one? We have more enabling to do.

                                          I can take him to your house on Sat if you want. He can spend the night with you, Jon and the kitties and then to Jean's on Sunday.
