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!

            Beyond the old, swaying backs, just makes me sad and even more frustrated at people rather than saddles :-(

              Another winner:

              Designer geldeng horse. - $2300 (Soddy daisy )
              "Newt" is a 16 year old designer horse. I got him at a sale. He is half quarter horse and not sure the other half but thinking THROUGHBRED? He's quick. He is green broke. My girlfriend rode him once and he spooked and threw her. Nobody's been on him since. He's about 15 Hands I think. No bad habits. He leads but doesn't really wanna trailer. I just ask for the money I've put into him so far. Between his feed vet and sale bill I think it's a fair price. Plus he is talented and sweet. Loves to be petted. He's brown and white. Geldeng. Never bred a mare.

                  ... and yet another puzzler:


                  ---"2 Quarter horses with papers - $1000
                  2 American quarter horses
                  1 is rideable, the other one is tempermental,
                  but is broken.

                  Can no longer afford the feed and housing.
                  For pics or more info,
                  Call or text "---


                  Bolding mine, wondering how temperamental and broke it is?
                  Broken to ride, or broken so it doesn't work any more?

                    I saw this one today under "Dressage mare"

                    Wonderful Dark bay almost black TB mare. 15.3hh 14 years old Never raced. For sale. Moves off right from your seat.
                    Would make a great lower level dressage horse. She can jump and jumps nicely but is timid when it comes to jumping
                    Needs a quiet, calm rider. Has been out of work for a while do to not having the time to ride. She does better when she is in a daily routine.
                    I only have a few photos of her under saddle, can provide video of her movement.
                    Good home is a must.

                    Somehow...I think this one has the owner's number...LOL

                            It's spring. Time for the CL crazies to emerge. Ad of the day:

                            I have a black stud for sale. He is about 3 says the vet. He is shorter than my mare and she's 16 hands. He is WILD, but extremely fast!! He's outran my friends barrel horse Nikki. He's not broke and he won't let you near him but that's because he was abused. He gets along with my horse (mare) and my neighbors horses (geldings) and he gets along with our landlords cows. He's nosey lol he's really gentle, he just needs a little more work. I'm going to school so I'm not getting to pay attention to him. He'd make a great barrel horse if the right person gets him or he'd be a good breeding horse. $200 firm so I know no one is going to hurt him, also he doesn't load but you bring the truck and trailer ill load him for you.

                                    I can't find the ad anymore, but there was a person advertising their horse for stud service. Apparently it was an "Overian" paint. I cracked up! His stud fee was only $150.00!

                                        Hot little fireball
                                        I have a 5 year old mare, will turn 6 in April.. Solid black out of Tn. Walking stock, is not registered. She is a little under 15 hands but is a real fireball. I have had her since she was 7 months old, done all the ground work on her and sent her to a Walking Horse training barn to be ridden. She never bucked. She loads good, stands for the farrier, loves the water hose. She is head strong and requires a strong hand. Saddles well, ridden both English and Western. Stands to be saddled and mounted. After the first 10 minutes of riding, she starts her crap.. Crow hopping, going sideways, walking backwards, After a good butt whipping, she will settle down and go on with her business.. I am the only one in the family who can ride her. She is up to date on coggins and all shots. I love this little hard headed mare and hate to part with her but medical issues will not allow me to risk getting hurt on her.. which I haven't yet, but there is always the first time.. She is a great little horse and after she earns your trust, she is in your back pocket.. Again,, she will take a strong hand,, is not a beginners horse nor a kids horse unless you have a kid tough as a pine knot.. I have had been lied to plenty of times on horses, which has resulted in my neck injury.. I will not lie to anyone and risk getting someone hurt just to sell a horse.. Come meet Addie (named after her bad attitude). She is a beauty.. 423-332-xxxx.. Price is firm..
