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!

  • Places to list QH for sale

    Somehow I ended up with a QH, Im not sure how but trainer "friend" talked me into buying. Now I need to downsize to send DD to college, her horse is for sale but no interest so I need to list the QH. Some times FB has groups w/ stuff for sale, is there a place to free list a QH?

          Dreamhorse is not free but a lot of people look there for horses. If your horse is well bred and well trained it may be worth it to advertise him there.

            If a horse is a good performance horse, the best market for that is in a performance stable.
            See if you can find a trainer that has the kind of clients that horse fits and how would they go about market and selling him for you?
            Many of those kinds of trainers are on FB and get the word out about a horse they have and those tend to sell quickly.

            How about that trainer friend that sold him to you?

              Just bc he's worth a lot doesn't mean good people don't look on CL. I look every day for used saddles, etc..I have also seen some local horses on CL listed at $12,000. CL is free and you get a lot of lookers.

                Why not spend just a little and advertise through the AQHA? You might find people who appreciate him for his specialized skills. If the national ads are too pricey, try Googling your state's AQHA club and putting an ad on their website.

                      You would be wrong to assume that there wouldn't be much interest in a QH here. I bet you get some looks.

                        Horseclicks and equinenow has free photo ads and you can post video links. The best free place for inexpensive horses (not 5 figure horses)

                          Our local CL has $250 QH WH & the pony, no high $ horses here, of course the economy sux right now so maybe why? I looked on COTH & saw no western horses, checked other & got a ad not for a western, maybe just all of them sold? I know many people who just have a backyard QH, a friend warned me if he was that I would have to give him away, and Im only doing this cause no one wants my other horse. Trainer would take QH but I hate to ask, shes got kids in college to. Will check barn he came from for selling & other sights. Thanks.

                            Definitely dreamhorse - text ads are free, but have photos and preferably video ready to email. Depending on your area I would also recommend posting at the local feed/tack stores and getting the word out by word of mouth (farrier, vet, local 4-h, etc). We've moved more of that level by word of mouth than anything.

                              where are you that there is no interest? Where have you advertised? For how long? What skills does the horse have? Mare? Gelding?

Horse is not beginner safe, those horses go like hotcakes at Mardi Gras , he is very safe for a rider who likes spirit & go, he needs some training in trails to be allround usful. Id trail train him if I kept him no problem, hes got so much heart & he tries so hard to do what you ask always.
                                    if you know that a well broke horse is marketable, but yours isn't moving....get him broke.

                                      or lower the price to what he will move for.

                                        Thats plan B, if I cant seel QH, but Im asking a few hundred above what I paid for him after commissions & that was cheap Caballero I dont event/jump except logs & puddles, he might be a great endurance horse to but thats not what I do & it would look strange to put prospect down for endurance/whatever when hes never done it. 3 dogs hes broke & safe just not a deadhead which is what people want for kid beginers cause most of them around here cant ride. Just sold a kids beginer horse easy for lots more $ & way easier time of it. He wouldnt buck spin rear or spook if a dragon landed in front of him but he goes bit faster than little kids want, as a second horse hes perfect.
