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!

  • New Finger Lakes Finests!

    2/2/12 - since this is an old thread and the links don't work I'm going to delete the links....
    Want a horse that just oooozes "nice"???

    Yep - he has a bit of lordosis and yep - he has a bit of a dent in his forehead from a very old "happening" but my gosh does this horse come across as wise and kind. You must see to appreciate. You can't see the dent in his photos and truly he has such a lovely face anyway that most people agree that the dent doesn't detract from his looks.

    And look at this sweetie! She is just a lovely girl who has done riding on the home farm.

    And here is Senor.... he's not new but he does need a home soon.

    And here is the lovely mare Somewhereinbetween. Her trainer said that out of all the interest this mare generated here on COTH that he only received one call.

    A Nice Bunch!

    It seems like I find enthusiasm about every single horse put on the listings each week. Every, single horse listed is a diamond in the rough. Seriously. These are beautiful horses.

    Shawklit Sister is built like a tank, gorgeous and just as sweet as she can be. Loves attention and peppermints. She's from an experienced horse family and has a great foundation as an all around riding horse.

    Somewhereinbetween is also a peach. Look at those eyes!

    Rockywithattitude was boarded on the farm where I have my horses last winter. He'd always have his head out looking for loving and treats. He's a good boy as well as a looker. Also a very well cared for horse coming from the barn of a great horseman.

    Michael's Vow also comes from the barn of an experienced and compassionate horsewoman. Please call her to discuss him. She loves to talk about her horses and, if she says he's a gentleman, he's a gentleman.

    I don't mean to dismiss anyone. A Young Minister has an extensive foundation as an eventer, so he can be ready to compete.

    Please remember that any of these horses can be viewed if you schedule an appointment with one of the volunteers who will escort you around the backside to view these beauties up close and personal!

      What a group of horses we listed this weekend! I was escorting caryledee around, but I managed to see three of the six in the flesh. Let me tell you, they are a gorgeous bunch of horses.

      Of the three I saw, Shawklit Sister is absolutely beautiful, and has the sweet personality that you find in a lot of TB mares. She just loves to be loved.


      Delicious Prospect is just that. She is only three, and she is as solid as a rock. The reason she is for sale is that she doesn't like the gate. Beautiful, beautiful young horse.


      And, what can you say about Rockywithattitude except that this is a horse that looked like he was born to be a hunter. He has that calm majesty that really stands out in a crowd.


      And, there is Watral's Senor. He has been on the board for quite a while. He needs to find a home because his owner won't be able to winter him. He's a gorgeous looking animal. Somebody needs a horse just like him.

        I just wanted to add that the camera doesn't come close to capturing the true beauty of these animals...Delicious Prospect has the cutest ears I've ever seen! You can't see it in the pictures, but they are quite tipped at the ends. Shawklit Sister has a coat that will just glow this spring. I saw so many horses out there that weren't cutting it as racehorses but would be awesome prospects for other disciplines. They just need to be given the chance!


        • #5
          So many nice horses! And so many trainers who I am sure would love to see their animals go to a nice home.

          Hope some COTHers are able to take some this year! Last year it seemed quite a few FL horses ended up with COTHers all over the country. I know the economy is not that great this year but hopefully at least a few find their way home with someone.....

            Just saw Stormy King jogging along with his pony before Race 5 at FL today - what a nice big trot he has! Totally looked bigger then his 15.2 hands


            • #7
              Just a note for those of you on the fence about considering a slightly smaller beastie...
              One of my 5 y.o. FL's who sticked about 15.2hh when he got to the farm grew! He's right around 16hh now (I sticked him over, my trainer sticked him under - I'll take the average)
              I'm not saying that all the others will grow too, but it could happen - heck, I have proof that it does happen!
              Y'all ain't right!

                Great group this weekend

                Wow! What a bunch of beauties. With Spirit and Maria's Treasure knocked my socks off


                • #9
                  Thirteen new listings this week, and the end of the season rapidly approaching. Go take a look, they really are a bunch of beauties.

                    I used to gallop BG Lark! Good mover, NICE filly, very sweet, kind, one of the good ones each morning, and at the farm she was at, that was rare She should grow a bit, I thought she was already 16 hands. When I knew her, she was called BG.

                    I really hope someone here gets her, she was always sound and she went out daily. I would love to hear how she does!

                    I wanted to add her pedigree:

                    She's only 3 and I hacked her all through the woods, walked over logs, up and down hills. She turned out well, always came to the gate, she was a total love bug. I really hope she ends up somewhere great, she was such a cool filly to gallop and be around.

                      Thanks, Ishi, for the background on this lovely filly. She was just darling when we were giving her her moment! She kept craning her neck around to watch us and was so swet!

                        Random, and crazy, but I did a google search for my new horse "Michael's Vow" and this thread showed up! I just got him a little over a week ago, and he's amazing! Moves like a dream, jumps unbelievable, BRAVE, QUIET, and his personality doesnt get any better!

                        He has a great home

                                The original thread is more than two years old. I think the old board, which is the one these links direct to, is no longer around (and probably none of the horses pictured there are available anymore anyway).

                                Track down the Fingerlakes Finest Rides Again thread for the link to the current board.

                                        Because, as already mentioned, this thread is two years old.
