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!

  • Someone please bid on this horse! EZ Season Ticket- Arabian endurance

    Man, a friend just showed me this horse being auctioned off with other government items, desks, chairs, printing presses, dumptrucks, water pumps, ambulances, to mention a few items, it just doesn't seem right?


    I do not need another horse, I do not need another horse, I do not need another horse....

    He looks to be such a sweet guy!! He is guaranteed sound. Maybe someone can contact a previous owner to him and let them know?

    What the auction says about him : "This is an Arabian Gelding Horse, 18 years old, he is grey in color and goes by the name of EZ Season Ticket. He was used as a 100 mile endurance horse in his earlier years and he is sound. He was used for exercise physiology and nutrition research, he is a very well behaved horse. "

    I would put up $20.00 towards the bid for someone to buy him or towards shipping, I know it's not much and I wish I could do more but money is so tight right now...

    I want a signature but I have nothing original to say except: "STHU and RIDE!!!

    Wonderful COTHER's I've met: belleellis, stefffic, snkstacres and janedoe726.

    He is a nice looking horse. If it weren't for the uncertain economy, I wouldn't mind going up to see him. Well bred Polish-Crabbet.

      Where'd you find his pedigree?


      • Original Poster

        Maybe Pandora looked up his registered name, "EZ Season Ticket?" Is there a website for Arabian horse registrations like AQHA?

          He isn't on the Allbreedpedigree.com site. The Arab registry does have its pedigrees online but it costs so damn much to be able to use it...

            The AERC Members have a lookup for endurance horses which is linked to Arabian Horse Datasource:

            EZ SEASON TICKET (AHR*476045)

            Sire: SREZRA IBN FARWA (AHR*147109) (ELSINORE ABUFARZA (AHR*35607) and KARADJIL (AHR*75288))

            Dam: KJ SIERRA (AHR*298566) (*KARADJORDJE (AHR*38066) and MAYAS AMERIGA (AHR*97143))

            I looked at who the endurance rider of record was for this horse (all the same rider). I posted a note to the Endurance forum at Endurance.net in the hope that someone may notify the previous owners/riders/friends of this horse about the auction. I Googled like crazy, but couldn't come up with current contact information for them.

            Here's hoping he gets a great home. Kudos to Chardavej for giving us the heads up about this deserving guy.

              Cool web site - there are bids on the guy already!

                Toirider thank you so much for cross posting him! He just LOOKS like such a nice horse. He reminds me of a horse I used to board here named Stevie, looks like his twin, especially the face, and Stevie is such a good horse, he's 20 and still going strong! He looks and acts like a 8 year old.

                I wish I could take credit for finding him on that site but another friend who also posts here told me about him and for some reason her home computer wont let her log on so she called and showed me the sight and asked if I would post him here, Stefffic, hopefully someone will bid on him before she does, LOL! She, like me, does NOT need another mouth to feed, especially since both of us has special needs horses.

                    I have access to the AHA database which gave me the EZ's complete pedigree. It is full of athletic lines but it is not easily transferred to here. Too large!

                    His previous owner's address is listed but I'm assuming they donated him and not sure if I want to give out this information. Besides, a post was made on the ridecamp forum so if they are still around, word should get to them.

                    If this horse is sound, this is a great opportunity for someone. I would drive up if I had the room.

                    It's probably a blessing that I don't have my own place otherwise it would be filled to the brim, and then some.


                    • #11
                      you can post the pedigree on All breed pedigree - he sure is a nice looking horse, and looks like he'sbeen well cared for where ever he is.

                        As I posted last night, I posted to the endurance forum (Ridecamp) at Endurance.net about this situation last night. I received a reply from an old friend of the previous owner. She is out of touch with the owner, but they have mutual friends who she will forward the e-mail to.

                        There have been 6 bids on the horse. Hopefully the people bidding are students of the college who are familiar with the horse rather than Kill buyers.

                          Bump for a good horse. God, I wish I could get him. But it would be suicidal for me and the four horses already here, and the ten dogs, and the four cats, and the cockatiel. But d*mn, I hope he gets a good home. He deserves one.

                            Wow, he looks like a real sweetheart! In my "neighborhood" too. Wish I had the $ to support another one; I really like him.

                            I did pass on the link to the VAHorses group, many of which live in northern VA, in hopes that will increase his chances of winding up in a good home. Thanks for posting about him.

                              Gorgeous build. I love that arabian line. DAMN, if I had my own place...I would take him in a heartbeat.

                                I do hope so bad that he gets a good home. Fingers crossed for him...I don't know why he just looks like such a sweet boy.

                                  If only I were closer.

                                  I have a real soft spot for arabs. My oldest is 30 now and still going strong (as a pasture puff). I would take an older experienced arab any day to get my younger ones out on the trail.

                                  Hope this guy finds a great home If I were close enough I would be putting in the bids.

                                    Sure wish they listed how tall he was.

                                    He's up to $180...how sad...jeeze, and he's not that far from me either...this hurts.

                                      I wish they did put the size on him, maybe 14.1?

                                        Awww, he looks like my 11 y/o gelding, Casper. What a sweet face!

                                        He's FAR too close to me, and I do not need another horse!
