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!

    Just not panning out as a race horse, has not broken her maiden, and as he says, even if she eventually does, then what. And his farm is just too full with better racing prospects and his broodies and babies to overwinter her. So she really needs to go. Spread the word!

    I've always come back to DD on the listings. She was the first horse I saw on the backside ever, so sweet and quiet. Her groom recognized me the 2nd trip out and said she needed me! I have a feeling she would make a young PC kid or AA looking for something not ginormous a great horse. Nicely proportioned, good minded, just raced this week and needs a new job!

    I just got down to 1 horse this week, DH might not be so "dear" if I go back to 2...

    • Thoughts on the gelding, "Great Privilege"? Temperament? Would he be the type to enjoy relaxing and trail riding? Sound for lower level jumping?

      I have a Langfuhr granddaughter with an absolutely amazing personality with the same look to her eye that he has.

      What are the volunteers' impression of this boy? I guess, also, is he still available?

          • Okay people, WHY is Helen still on the listings?!?
            http://fingerlakestracklist.proboard...lay&thread=689

            The Eventing board was raving about her when she was first posted, and she is cute and flashy, so I thought she'd be gone immediately. Is she just getting lost at the bottom of the listings? Does everyone really think they need a 16+hander? I KNOW some of you out there are right in my 5'2'' height range, and 15.1 (plus, she's THREE, she will grow!) is the perfect size...

              Did you read my thread on H/J about buyers being "Heightists"?

              Lots of sad facts there...

                It's just awful. My Fingerlakes mare from last season is 16.1, and thank goodness she has a narrow frame because otherwise I think she would be too big for me! My gelding is big bodied, and 15.2, and he makes me look like a shrimp.

                There are enough smaller horses out there kicking some major butt that two inches should not make a difference!

                If I weren't six hours away and possibly moving to a city (with two "lifers" and one out on a lease that is welcome to come back at any moment) in the next few months, I would snap up Helen in a heartbeat. She looks like she will be quick and catty over jumps, and her casual manner in the video is jaw-dropping on a three year old!!

                • Mine is a big big bodied 15:3 which is plenty big for most people...size is not the end all in be all except for a few exceptions. When my trainer was looking for the 6 foot 5 guy at the barn, 15.2 was not going to cut it, but really how many riders are that tall?

                    Helen is being vetted. Very happy news for a cool horse. At the moment she's on the farm with a shaggy winter coat, an abcess in her heel, and covered in mud, and yet after looking at her, the woman who's buying her said "this is the one!" and was so happy she had tears in her eyes. I'm just waiting for the vetting to be completed before moving her. Once she moves to the sold category you'll know she's in a great home for life.

                      He seems to be a good sensible guy. I really like him and will show him to a bunch of people on Sunday if he's still there.

                        • Glad that so many are finding a safe landing place! Hats off to the volunteers who advocate for these wonderful horses! One day I hope the cards are in order for me to have my own FLF.

                            Oh thank goodness, I can stop worrying about her.

                              This is so heart warming. I hope the vetting goes well, sounds like a match made in heaven.

                              • Just back from the track where we took some more listings and loaded up some more. Whomever thinks that these wonderful animals are universally fire-breathing hot heads should watch them walk calmly across the backside to the awaiting trailers, trucks and trailers all around them, and walk calmly and without hesitation on a two horse trailer....should have been around to watch as our recent groups have done just that! As is always the case, nothing makes our collective hearts go pitter patter more happily than watching the taillights of another group of Finests pulling off the backside onto Route 96.

                                A few at-risk horses are still watching the clock tick down. One adorable chestnut gelding, Dade City, would love to avoid a trip to New Jersey in the Sandy zone! Another little mare, Catillac Cutie, is on borrowed time. Same with Katelyn Ann who has once again become available and is well put together and a nice mover (also has the breeding for a broodmare prospect). And Round not Sleek really needs an angel to help her out.

                                Ostin's Miracle, an 8 y.o. gray with interesting black markings, is "the coolest horse I've ever worked with" according to his trainer who has been on the backside for 35 years! He will run one more time at Mountaineer and then be on a local farm close to the track.

                                Vermilion, Great Privilege was VERY quiet and sweet when we met him and took his pictures. I think he would be wonderful for what you want him for.

                                Another new listing is Pride of Paris, (aka "Peaches") trained by my DIL, an "up" filly who has run very well this year and will be happy on farm turnout this winter, but would make an amazing Eventing prospect. She is a very forward and athletic girl who loves to train.

                                We have had an amazing and successful year and will continue to be active throughout the winter. Many of the horses will be overwintered on local farms and will remain available.

                                Many thanks to everyone who has jumped on the Finest bandwagon, networked, trumpeted, shared with friends who share with friends, etc. You give us the wind beneath our wings, so to speak. I also want to thank the many compassionate and generous individuals who offer homes to horses who are in need, regardless of color, size or gender. You know who you are. I think I can speak for all of the volunteers when I say that our hearts are full.

                                • Round Not Sleek has a nice pedigree for sport. She has Bold Forbes, Air Forbes One, Damascus and Raja Baba relatively up close in the pedigree and she certainly has a calm eye. It says highly negotiable on the price so I think she would be well worth a look.
