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!

  • FInger Lakes Finest Thoroughbreds 2012 Trainer Listings

    We are now officially "back at the track" for the 2012 Finger Lakes season -- and we already have our first new listing. Futile Attempt, a big sound unraced mare, who is a great sport horse prospect, so let's start getting the word out!

    Last weekend SEPowell and I went to Finger Lakes, chatted with many trainers and people in the racing office, got updates on several horses that were still on our listings from last year, and are now ready to go with new listings for this season.

    We thought we should start this new thread for the 2012 season, so that you don't have to scroll through all of last year's messages to track your favorites, ask us questions, and get help in adding one of these wonderful OTTBs to your life.

    I have cross posted these updates on the status of horses form last season's listings on the Finger Lakes Trainer Listings Rides Again thread, since many will still be checking there before moving to this new 2012 thread.
    We found out that some of the horses still on the 2011 listings did in fact find new homes: Why Because ( for polo); Howdyalikethemapples ( a family all purpose horse); Gracious Victory (show prospect); Saint for Joan (racing in Puerto Rico).

    Some horses are definitely still available, so if you are interested please call the trainer listed for 2011: Florida Quaker; Taconic Girl; Seneca Chief

    Several 2011 listed horses are still in training for racing at Finger Lakes, and are doing well after their winter breaks -- they may be available again later in the racing season. This "still racing" group includes: Truffula; One Classy Lady; Regal Encounter; Montessori; Stack o'Dollars; Private Screening; Too Critical; Titusville; Relatively Ready; Seventeen Love; Group Effort; YNV Me; YesNoWhatever; Six Roses Gone; Two Gendarmes; Pegasus Ajuda.
    If you had a favorite from this group, take heart in knowing they are healthy, and it never hurts to let the trainer know you are truly seriously interested!
    We couldn't find everybody, so there are other 2011 listed horses we did not get to check on, so if I haven't mentioned one of your favorites, don't despair.

      Woohoo, put that mare on a truck to Georgia. I'd buy her on her feet alone. (Must get a job first dangit.)

        Does anyone know what happened with Rizzi's Twist? I saw her last year at the track. Thanks!

          No, she would be on a truck to SoCal if the shipping fees weren't out of my budget!

            If I could afford a third horse, I would have snatched up Paying Attention! I'm sure his big brother, Pay Attention, would have loved to introduce him to farm life. Did he find a good home?

              A couple more nice ones were just listed this morning. I wish I could go shopping - I would willingly take either mare and the gelding isn't bad either.

                Thanks Christa P! Why don't you come with me sometime to list horses? It's fun and makes you feel reckless as you want every horse so badly you almost walk away with about 5 behind you.

                I went yesterday and have 4 new horses to list but must first edit the photos, write the write ups and then go through a couple of uploads to get them online... so patience my dears

                Then, I need to return to get one I missed and three videos

                    We don't know where Paying Attention wound up; when back at the track we can ask his trainer for more information. We always like to try to follow up as much as possible on the horses we list!
                    It is so gratifying when we learn about good new homes and get updates from the happy new Finests owners. These great moments certainly make up for the unfortunate occasional (but thankfully rare) bad news.

                      Four brand new never been listed horses are up with prices and contact information. Write ups are coming. Sorry I'm late but I have a bit too much going on at the moment. Hope to have it all finished by tomorrow noon.

                        WOW! The four new horses are amazing! Good ship and Jethro made me drool all over my keyboard and wonder if there is any way I could talk the husband into just one more horse...

                              For those of you liking the look of Good Ship, this lovely mare spent the late winter/early spring at the farm where Tilly, one of my Finger Lakes Finests, is on training board. The excellent and very experienced eventing trainer at this farm broke Good Ship and taught her excellent manners and put great flat work basics into her. The people who handle the horses there raved about what a good natured and easy to work with mare she is. The trainer was also very high on her potential for sport/dressage/eventing. Unraced, sound, sane, and already a couple of months good training into her --this one is truly a gem, and someone had better snap her up!

                                Hmmmm... the canter horse I wanted to buy for my trainer was gone before I got a chance... now I'm very tempted by Florida Quaker. Guess I'll have to talk to her about it and see if she's interested.

                                  Glad you guys are back. You did such an excellent job last year. I am sure you will find many fine prospects for people to snatch up.

                                    Eeek! Made the call about Florida Quaker. We'll see what owner has to say.

                                      Good Luck. I remember her being discussed on the eventing forum when she was listed last year. A few people thought she had upper level potential.

                                        OOOOH hooray -- keeping my fingers crossed for you and this lovely mare! I am firmly in the camp of those who see upper level potential in her -- when we took her listing last fall there was a power and elegance about her that really captured our eyes, and we just couldn't believe she didn't get snapped up quickly. Carol said she got several calls, but some were no shows. Then she moved the mare to her farm, so we couldn't show her to the "shoppers" who we escorted aorund the track. Perhaps this will turn out to be your lucky break.
