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.

  • Pal Joey Fund to help Beulah horses: New pics of horse helped by COTH, pg 6

    So many of you on COTH have been dedicated supporters of CANTER Ohio's tireless efforts to help horses at Beulah Park, now that the track is set to close for the spring next weekend... as well as kind contributors to CANTER OH's Pal Joey Fund - inspired by a great fundraising effort that happened right here on the forum!

    Nancy from CANTER OH asked me to post about another very deserving, sweet-natured gelding at Beulah who could really use a life away from the track. Dee Beau Black is a quiet, handsome 6-year-old son of Matty G who has roots in New England, too: some of you may have seen him listed on CANTER NE's web site when he was racing at the Northampton Fair last fall. Dee Beau was lucky to land with a good-hearted trainer at Beulah who wants to find him a home away from the track, but wants to sell him, not donate him outright.

    There is some concern, given the flood of horses at Beulah who need homes; the short time frame; and the fact that Dee Beau has an enlarged knee, that Dee Beau may not find a home by the time he needs to. With that in mind, CANTER OH is hoping to raise the funds needed to purchase Dee Beau from his trainer. The trainer is asking $1000 but it is believed that price is quite negotiable...so any and all donations are most welcome. The Beulah meet closes next weekend, 5/6.

    If you would like to give to the Pal Joey Fund to help retire Dee Beau Black, you can make a Paypal contribution at:


    or send a check, made payable to CANTER Ohio, to:

    CANTER Ohio
    7971 Chippewa Rd.
    Lodi, Ohio 44254

    Please make sure to mark your donations "for the Pal Joey Fund, to help Dee Beau Black." Thank you!

    P.S. I also have to give a HUGE nod to Nancy, her Beulah volunteer Chris, and SafeHorses from this board, all of whom kept a watchful eye on Dee Beau and went to great lengths to track down his trainer when it was observed that he was really struggling in his races. (The trainer is not based at Beulah, and had no idea about CANTER until Chris contacted him.) The folks at CANTER OH truly do put in 110% for these horses.

      My boy Dee!! Well, he's not really mine, but I have been keeping a cyber eye on him since last year thanks to 17handtb telling me about him while he was in New England.

      This boy needs to get off the track, he's been finishing in the back of low level claiming races for a while now and I have been worried sick for the last few weeks that he would end up at one of the local and very scary auctions. In fact, I have enlisted the help of friends of friends to keep an eye out for him in case he turned up at one of them.

      This is Dee's best chance to get off the track and have a happy ending...hopefully we can raise enough money to buy him and give him a new life away from racing. I'm off to make my donation right now!

      ETA: And THANK YOU to Nancy and Canter OH and 17handtb for going the extra mile to help save this boy...so many more would be lost every year if it weren't for all the hard work that CANTER does for the horses.
      Until they are safe.

        Hmmm...I didn't have the opportunity to make a note on my donation. I will email Nancy to let her know what to look out for...
        Until they are safe.

          Well...Dee ran at Beulah today. The trainer wanted to run him "one to two more times", but he did finish mid pack. I am hoping we don't have another Pal Joey situation where he suddenly starts running well and the trainer changes his mind about retirement! Slow down Dee!
          Until they are safe.


          • #6
            If you guys get word that Dee may end up at Sugarcreek and need somebody to get him, let me know. Even if I'm not planning to go, I can be there in about an hour.

              Thanks so much, Rachael! We are all hoping hard that it WON'T come to that. Trainer seems like a good guy, but does want $$ for him, and the Beulah meet's days are rapidly winding down...

                Keep us updated...you know we'll come through.

                    Thank you for posting this thread for Dee. Beulah closes next weekend so we need all the help we can get! Right now we have about $200 for Dee!! I will reply to you all individually to be sure the funds are directed accordingly.

                    I know right now there are a a lot of calls for help for horses in need. It can be overwhelming. We've all felt that way at times, but when we actually save a life, it's worth all the sleepless nights and bagged lunches.

                    One thing I can tell you for sure--no CANTER volunteer ever gives up hope for every last horse, and it truly is amazing that a small group of people can impact so many horse's lives. Without your support we would not be able to save all of them.

                    We'll talk to Dee's owner this weekend and let you know his status. Thank you all for your generosty for Dee.

                      One more thank you


                      Thank you for the kind offer, we are hoping we can get him before he gets to Sugar Creek. For all of you that may be unfamiliar, this is a notorious auction and we are really, really grateful that Rachael22 would go there to save this special horse. You are a very brave person. We'll keep everyone informed!

                        I just sent some money through PayPal...but I think I forgot to include the note that it was for Dee...I think my sleep deprivation came into play. I will send an email to see if my error can be corrected.

                              Ack! Just made the donation via paypal/credit card - no way to denote it's for Dee!

                              Please let me know if you need any info...it's the one from St Louis MO.

                              NNot much, I know...but if we get a bunch of us....it only would take 80 more COTHers, maybe less...

                              I can't stand the thought of any of these guys suffering. There but for the grace could have gone my sweet boy.

                                Yeah, I don't think there is a notationn area for donations...or I messed up and missed it when I sent mine in. Nancy is pretty good at flagging the right ones though.

                                Don't worry about the amount DG, it all adds up and every little bit helps. I am the same way about not being able to stand the thought of these poor horses suffering. I've waited for weeks to see if CANTER had a chance to make contact with the trainer (the dude is NOT easy to find), but he's apparently a nice guy and I'm hoping something can be worked out for Dee.

                                  DG, EVERY penny makes a difference for Dee and his buddies at Beulah. Thank you!

                                    NMK -- I sent mine yesterday -- It isn't marked for Dee, but it is the paypal one with my nettally.com email address.

                                    It isn't much, but I wanted to send something from Sam, who now has a wonderful life thanks to Lord Helpus

                                    Come on guys! We can do it!
