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!

      Green Hunter Mare NoVA

      I have a gorgeous Belgian WB mare, 7 yrs, around 16.1 hands that I'm looking to free lease out. I would prefer her go to a Hunter type rider, as she is more suited to that discipline. She has been shown locally, and done fine. She is still green to new places, looks at jumps and will refuse if rider doesn't give proper calm encouragement. She has nice movement and jump, but is not a "A" Circuit candidate. Please message me for more info.

        CT Horseless Rider

        My current show horse is going to dropped down a level after showing at 3 feet for 15(!) years. His well deserved semi retirement leaves me with not much to ride. Looking for another Mr Right to bring to the farm where I board and make up to be a show hunter. Anybody?

          {Sorta} Riderless Horse in Central MA

          Hi all-

          I currently have my hands full my own OTTB and my competition horse as well as riding several client horses and my poor other horse has been pushed to the side. He is great. He's 17.1, big Selle Francias. He was did the high level jumpers in his prime and now is enjoying flatting, hacking, and occasionally a small fence. He is 17 years old and does need maintenance if I wanted to still compete him. I've decided to keep him on the best of supplements, the best of care, but let him enjoy a more leisurely lifestyle away from the show ring. He is not a push button to ride-he does have lots of buttons and a strong work ethic. I love riding him because he really does make you ride correctly. He does have stringhalt in his hind legs which causes him to have a high stepping motion-he has had this his whole life and it improves with consistent work and is not a painful condition for him. He is an absolute gentleman on the ground and will stand for hours for loving and grooming. I am looking for someone who would want to enjoy him on the ground as well as keeping him in a dressage focus or simply enjoying hacking. He is currently boarded at a barn in central MA. I would prefer for him to stay on-farm and for someone to half lease him but to the absolute perfect situation I would consider leasing him off property.

            Soon to be horseless in Orlando, FL

            Hi I'm relocating to Orlando (east side) for work next month. Leaving my dressage horse with her trainer, leaving my beloved schoolhorse with his owner (my trainer), and throwing a wide net for a part-time horse friend in my new home.

            Any discipline, some non-arena work would be wonderful.

            *fingers crossed* while I check my PMs.

            Thanks.

                Horseless dressage/jumper adult SOUTHWEST MI

                I've posted here a few times but no bites so I'll try again...

                I'm a 30 year old college instructor who is horseless after my own horse, a 19 year old OTTB, passed away last year. I'm looking for a horse to ride in either the Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, or Schoolcraft/Three Rivers areas of Michigan. (I work in Grand Rapids, but live in Marcellus, so I am up and down 131 all the time). I take weekly dressage lessons with an FEI instructor(I can provide details), and I trained my own horse up to Modified Jumpers, 2nd level dressage, and Training Eventing. I'd like a horse--any horse or even pony (I'm short/small 5'3 125 lbs)--just to work with on basic dressage between lessons. Young TBs off the track are up my alley, as are Arabs, Morgans, pretty much anything. I enjoy the challenge of relaxing hot/fast horses into dressage work, and I love working on the basics with any horse. I'm not picky--I'd be happy to get any idle horse in your pasture going--young, old, talented, untalented, green, experienced--doesn't matter. I'd even be willing to do slow careful work with an older horse who doesn't want to be retired, or work with a youngster. PM me if interested.

                  Riderless Horses in Central CT

                  Hi - I have two semi-riderless horses in central CT....

                  6 yr old Appendix Gelding: Sweet guy who can be free-leased a couple days a week. He is about 15.3 and can do pre-children's, modified adults and similar stuff. Knows his lead changes and is unflappable around a course.

                  8 yr old Oldenburg mare: Lovely mare available for a partial lease (couple rides per week). She's a stunning mover, with auto changes and a huge step. She walks the lines and currently shows in adults. She's about 16 hands (has a perm card at 15.3 3/4, but she's got a huge body).

                  Both of these horses would be available to show if interested. They are boarded at a great, private farm with a nice indoor and lighted outdoor. I just cannot afford full board on both of them (or the time to ride both as often as they should!) so I'm looking for someone to share use with me. Great opportunity to get in the saddle a couple days a week :-) All you need is a helmet and some boots - I can lend you my saddle (a super comfy Butet) and all other tack.

                    My two teenage daughters take weekly riding lessons but would like more riding time. They've been riding for about two and a half years and can walk and trot confidently. If you are on the South Shore and have a horse(s) that would suit them, please e-mail me at magiadigaited@aim.com Thanks!

                            I've tried leasing out my mare but can't find any takers. I could really use somebody to help me love on her and keep her in shape this winter.

                            Tazz is a 15 hand bay QH mare. Not marish. Suitable for an advanced Beginner all the way through an advanced rider. Tazz is a "kick on" mare, has decent gaits on the flat, and is a VERY good little jumper.

                            I've love to find somebody to rider her a couple times a week. Rider could also participate in shows if he/she wants.

                            I have a ton of photos. Tazz competed at Recognized Novice eventing this past summer, and would still be eventing if I hadn't run out of money.

                                    Horseless Rider near San Francisco, CA

                                    My horse recently had a suspensory injury, so I'm looking for a horse to ride! I've evented up to Novice level (on both made and green horses), jumped up to 3'9'', competed upper training-level dressage (schooled movements up to 2nd level), and have experience riding many different types of horses.

                                    I've taken a green OTTB on a catch ride to her first Novice (with a 34.5 in dressage and a clean stadium), having only ridden her the day before the event Also rode a green IDSH mare at BN a few weeks ago.

                                    Looking for a horse to ride 2-5 days per week, and hopefully board at my barn (near Woodside). Please PM me if you know of any opportunities

                                    Thank you!

                                      I have 25 years riding experience. I was a working student for two years for Gigi Nutter, qualified for the Area III YR team in 2000? (man that was a long time ago!), worked for Julie Burns Richards at Fox Hall farm. I have cliniced with Karl Mikolka, Phillip Dutton, Ralph Hill, and Mark Coombs. In addition I grew up riding reiners and cutters and most recently reschooled unwanted sale horses for the roping pen and barrel racing. Lot's of experience with unbroke young horses and rehabbing OTTB's. Hoping to get myself another project after the first of the year but looking for something to ride in the meantime and hoping to meet some people on this side of the state! Thanks!

                                        I am looking for someone to half lease. He is fun to ride, great lateral work, light off the leg, not spooky. He has shown successfully through second level. I am looking for someone to ride 2 or 3 days a week as I am a college student and my schedule doesn't always allow me to go to the barn as often as I'd like. Message me if you would like to see photos or videos, or come try him!

                                          Horseless in West Chester, PA

                                          Well, not really horseless but complicated. Would like more saddle time than I'm getting right now. Flatwork only, preferably in an indoor arena, though an outdoor may be OK depending on circumstances.

                                          I used to ride at a competitive barn, so always rated myself against the pros -- and invariably came up short. But at the lesson barn I'm at now, the BO (who had never seen me ride before) came in and said to my trainer: I didn't know Dizzy was such a good rider. I guess my skill depends on who you're comparing me with.
