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!

        Yay! How exciting! Is he a TB or an appendix? (Just noticed the bottom of your post) What's his name? I hope everything works out!

          I think I know the horse you're talking about-- General Hood?....I wanted to look at him, but don't need another right now.

          I also have a grandson of Secretariat....although that means *nothing* seeing as he's a gelding. Well, except for a wee bit of bragging to those non-horsey people-- they think it's awesome! My boy is similar to what I've read about Secretariat. He works hard, sweet, and pretty athletic (can do so much without much effort).

          I hope it works out for you!

              Errr, the first horse you look at is a horse that's been starved and needs work and you're BUYING him? Not that this suprrises me--it's darn hard not to fall in love with the first horse you see--but how about trying some others first???

                The new horse is going to be a huge difference from Stormy and what you are use to.

                  She said the ride went well...maybe he was starved earlier and he's okay now.

                    Congratulations

                    I hope he's at the right weight NOW because if you get him home and 'unstarve' secretariat you may have a real uncontrollable bundle of energy on your hands.

                    What happened to those nice appendix QH's you were looking at online?

                    No flames here Bumpkin, I agree.

                      Like I said before, a TB is a big difference from a cold blooded Appy. Then you throw in the starved part of it---what is this horse going to be like when he has had proper nutrition and is fit? Please don't just jump on the first horse you see, especially so you can tell people he's "related to Secretariat"...it won't hold much creedence when you are in the hospital.

                      I remember talking with my first Pony Club instructor after I had broken my back from being bucked off by an OTTB--she said that's why she never mounted PC kids on TB's. (No flames here, I love TB's, they have a place, but are not a great choice for many riders-timid beginners, amateurs, etc)

                      I wish you well, but I'd sure look at other breeds which might be a far better all around horse for you-especially if you plan to take them to shows and away from home.

                            Beanie is home-grown....never been on the track. He's been worked as a hunter-jumper, event prospect for three or four years. He's very level-headed. He's been at the barn where my trainer's daughter boards for six weeks now. She has watched him and ridden him and feels confident that he is quiet and bomb-proof. This barn is crazy-kids running around, horses running loose and he takes it all in stride and never even blinks an eye as he his just 6 yrs old.

                                    Believe me, I had a horse that wasn't starved, but underweight when I got him and when he fatted up, he was crazy! I could not canter him for a whole month, but we worked through this and after 4 yrs, he is one of the quietest TBs I know, but that took work. He now does the 3'6"-3'9" jumpers in a happy mouth snaffle, but he didn't start that way. If you are going to get upset if you can't canter for a whole month then you shouldn't get the horse. Just to let you know mine was 9 when he did this and he is also related to Secretariat.

                                    I think you should go look at more and be very honest about your riding ability with yourself before you buy this horse.

                                      Well its going to be my mistake and you dont know the whole story behind it.... and i dont care ya'll have Tbs big freaken deal its just a breed. There are hot horses just not Tbs. Mt trainer says there are hot Qhs,Appys and ponies out there. Besides the biggest thing is if he passes the vet check. This is ticking me off. I'll just shut up and not say a word about it intill i know for sure that im getting him.

                                        I agree...sounds like an accident waiting to happen But, hey guys, we've tried to warn her before...she's only going to take the advice & praises she wants to hear, and to hell with the rest of it and us, after all, none of us know anything about her riding level and capabilites, right? She's only posted a million pics So I guess we're all just a bunch of know-it-alls and we're gonna get proved wrong...O-KAY! Go for it then, prove us wrong...but when you get yourself hurt (and a lot of it sounds like trainer negligence to me as well) don't come crying to those on this board who tried to give you some sound (from YEARS of experience) advice. So, go knock yourself out (literally) You're fixin' to get in way over your head, it sounds like
