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!

  • Looking for a ride - Lovettsville, VA to Buffalo, NY

    Can anyone recommend some carriers that would do this route?

    Have one mare to move the middle of July. I'll meet the hauler in Buffalo and cross the border myself with her

    Many thanks for any suggestions for good, reputable companies doing this route

    When do you need her to go?

    I live in Buffalo and there is a trainer I would love to ride with for a couple lessons about an hour away from you. I could take my horse down and bring both back to Buffalo on the way up.

    My insurance policy that is in the process of being bound has care custody and control insurance for trailering, so it is legitimately insured, etc.

      She is weaning her foal around the 8th/9th of July, and then I want her to hang out for a bit to dry up and move around and ensure there are no complications from the weaning, so roughly the middle of July?

      Does that work for you?

      That would be WONDERFUL if it does! I am trying to get her home in a decent time frame so I can also look at breeding her before the season shuts down as well

      If that is workable, my email is sales@truecoloursfarm.com

      Thanks so much!

        You may luck out with someone coming from Colonial Downs (30 min away) to FE or Woodbine. I know the stall man there if you want me to ask. I do know one friend who brings horses up from there, trying to remember if it was as early as mid July they usually come though.

          jengersnap - thanks - I'd love it! I'd appreciate using someone I "know" versus just a random operation that has room and is coming this way. And then no problem getting her from FE or Woodbine or meeting them someplace in between as well

              I think you mean Charles Town in West Virginia. Colonial Downs is much farther from Lovettsville than 30 minutes.

                Hmmm, thanks Tiramit. The first address I found for Colonial was different and closer...don't know why that was. Could still be on the way if they take 81 up like usual.

                      Hunters Rest - unfortunately I cant. I want to have 1 or possibly 2 chances at getting her bred before we call it quits on this year so the sooner the better for me

                      I did find a carrier that is picking her up for me on the 13th. The rig looks fabulous and in terrific shape, the price was fair, and they have followed up and answered every question that I had for them in a timely manner. And best of sll - she will be picked up early in the morning on the 13th and I will get her in Buffalo late afternoon / early evening the same day, so other than a short diversion in PA to get another horse on the load, its pretty well a straight drive through for her

                      Have nothing but the nicest of things to say about them so far - will also update once I have picked up my mare

                      They are:

                      Quality Equine Transport
                      919 632 8004

                      Based out of NC, they come up and down the east US coast and as far west as TX and OK as well. They will also haul into Canada if all of the horses on board have the proper paperwork to do so

                      Thanks for the suggestions everyone!
