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!

            No kidding! My FLF (end of meet of '09 alumn) is just a hair under 15.2hh and now that I have been able to work with him consistently, we are jumping 3' handily. Actually, the fences are set at 3' but, greenie that he is, he's taking them at about 4' Right now we are working on getting a foot abscess to finally pop out and then we'll be back to flying over fences. Ability can come in smaller packages.

                Not as of yesterday. Ed Perdue loves this horse and will hang on to him until he finds a home. He is such a gorgeous, intelligent, classy horse, and he is quite the mover. There must be someone out there is is not an "ageist" who just wants an amazing horse!

                I have a friend who is trying to work out timely shipping for one of the cute mares in urgent need --Katlyn Ann -- so keeping fingers crossed.

                • Catillac Cutie

                  If we can get this girl secured today I will pitch in for shipping or what have you. She is a cute, cute, cute little girl and I can't get her out of my mind!

                  • We are getting closer to getting Cutie home! I can't have another horse really but I may be 'fostering' her for a time until either I sell one or get Cutie settled in somewhere long term. She might be for my Dad even, he is 65 and a great rider. She would be his first OTTB. I will keep the thread posted as the day wears on!

                    • I hate to ask, but have there been threats of sending horses to PR this year? or are they already gone and were never listed?

                        We were told about six weeks ago that the buyers for Puerto Rican racing stables would not be coming to FL this year, and to get ready for a particularly frantic end of season placement rush as a result. We do not know if that changed and they were in fact around buying horses.

                                  I am so relieved and happy. You've got some crappy travelling weather. Where are you travelling from? If you go through Geneva you could swing by my office for money!!

                                  I got this news via e-mail and immediately bawled!

                                    Fantastic news!

                                    Any word on the other urgents? Round Not Sleek, Katlyn Ann, Dade City? Those two ladies look to be solid and well bodied. And if you look past Dade City's shaggy coat and ill fitting halter, you'll see a really cute boy. Jingles for them all!

                                    foundationmare, Peaches is stunning! I bet she could tear up a XC course.

                                        Katlyn Ann has a home!

                                        In addition to the fantastic news about Cutie, another one of the adorable at risk mares has found a home: Katlyn Ann!
                                        Sweet story here-- the woman who is taking her really wanted her as her first choice, but when she called one week ago she was told the mare had been placed. So she moved on and decided to take Fearless Buzz and Barbarules instead. When we confirmed on Saturday morning that the placement for Katlyn Ann had fallen through, we immediately informed the interested person. She said she would never renege on the ones she had committed to, so we should still load them on the waiting trailer, and she would think about whether she could also take on Katlyn Ann.
                                        We spent yesterday afternoon e-mailing, texting, back and forth; she lined up shipping (my wonderful BO agreed to do it, since our barn is not far from the intended destination for Katlyn Ann), she called the contact person, and hooray -- tomorrow afternoon Katlyn Ann will depart FL for a great new home. The initial placement that fell through was for more racing; now the lucky mare gets to go to a lovely barn and have a big pasture to romp in with two other Finest friends, and have some winter time off and then get retrained for light dressage and fun trail riding.
