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!

    I love the New Vocations photos! From what I can tell, they have a few talented volunteers who do their conformation photos at one of the adoption centers.

              Wow, she is a lovely young mare. She actually looks like she's had some work, and could make someone a really nice dressage prospect. She looks uphill more than many........Wish I was looking for a prospect - I'm a sucker for a nice mare, and seem to have a chestnut bias.......

                  That is one heck of a horse. She's a stunner. If her brain is half as good, I'd snatch her up.

                      Why hasn't she been scooped up yet! This is the description of her on the NV website. Interesting comment about her color:

                      Never has one of our horses generated so much discussion online, especially about coat color! To set the record straight, the mare is correctly registered as dark bay/brown. The photo is of her after she spent a year in the Georgia sun that bleached out her coat and added the highlights to her mane and tail. The longer she is out of the intense sun and once her winter hair comes in, her coat will be almost black again.

                      After only one start and earning $84, Patty didn’t show enough aptitude for the track so she was sent to us so she could find a new career that suited her better. That shouldn’t be hard because she is quiet and respectful to ride and easy to handle. Add to that her solid build, pretty face and sweet and sassy attitude, she will have no problem finding a new career in a new home. She is also very kind to her girlfriends in turnout, befriending the quiet one while calming down the anxious one. Patty will be a fun project and someone will be very lucky to have her join their family.

                        Her adoption fee is $300, but you have to be an approved adopter to be able to adopt any of the New Vocation horses.

                          May be my inexperienced eyes, but in the video, she looks NQR at the canter.. is that typical OTTB stiffness?

                            I thought she might have a slight head bob at the trot...but my computer has been horrible with videos lately.

                            Anyway, video of her under saddle:

                              She's very pretty, but in all gaits, something just looks... off.

                                Wow, what a well put together TB, and I'm not a TB person. I don't think she's off, she just moves like a horse that hasn't discovered her hind end. So she's strung out, inverted and not at all under herself. That would come with training and muscling.

                                  She looks foots sore. Unfortunately, she moves like a heifer. Darn.

                                    Don't think she's "off"; rather, she looks like a horse just starting work. W/T/C around an arena is a pretty big change from a racetrack, too. I doubt she's encountered short turns since her very early training days, if ever.

                                      IMNSHO she looks somewhat sickle hocked and a trifle "stabby" moving on that left hind leg. When she relaxes and lowers he head trotting she is better, maybe muscle or foot sore.

                                        She just doesn't know how to use her body yet. If I were looking I'd be checking her out. PPE would rule out any issues. LOL see why she didn't go well on the race track. She's not a natural great mover -she'll have to learn.
