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!

    Let's not get too crazy about the win It was just a three horse field - win wagering only - for the $16,100 optional claiming. Three vet scratches narrowed the field down.

      Crazy? And here I was thinking that win pretty much sews up HOY for her.

        Hey, if you're referring to the Finger Lakes HOY Award, you're likely right!

          Right! Still a good race for her, sounds like she ran well. And picking up a pay check beats a no check any day.

            Assuming she's still got something left in the tank this season, I'd love to see her give a couple Aqueduct stakes a shot after FL closes, or maybe even see her down in Florida..


            • #86
              I have been following and wagering on her all along and am very pleased that she is still running. True, it was only three horses this time, but it's a little more money for oats this winter. : ) She gets my HOY vote anytime!

                  Love this mare. I have seen her at Finger Lakes, we used to live not too far.

                    I see Lisa tried her hand at the Presque Isle tapeta to start off her 2012 season.. seemed to take to it pretty well, with 2nd and 3rd finishes and 80 Beyers..

                    Back at Finger Lakes this past weekend, and stretching out to a mile. For some reason, Dennis Carr (who has been her regular jock and also rode her at PID) was off her and on another horse in the race.. thought that was strange..

                    Anyway, she went too fast early and ran out of gas late, but had enuff to hold 2nd..

                    I wonder if she'll try SAR again this year..


                    • #90

                      No races or workouts since the last start in June, hope she hasn't been on the sidelines for anything serious. Her connections have a Facebook page for her, but it's rarely updated.

                        After 11 months off, LBT makes her 2013 debut today at Finger Lakes in an 8th race allowance..

                        And the book about her and Tim Snyder releases today too:



                        • #92
                          Well we hope she wins. She's got to be one tough mare to stay the course, and we're glad she got some time off.

                          Got a notice from amazon about the book, but didn't know it was about LBT. Now we'll have to buy it.

                                I saw Tim at the track last weekend and spent about 20 minutes talking to him about Lisa and life in general. He told me about the book and showed me his advance copy and explained that the book is about more than LBT. He's had a kind of storied life (he was literally born at the track!) and, along with the whirlwind of his success with Lisa, he's had a crazy year with some health issues that are resolving and a wowza! personal surprise that I don't feel is okay to share in a public forum eventhough he probably wouldn't care if I did. He also mentioned that there might be some Hollywood interest in his life story as told in the book.

                                I think Lisa looked terrific in her first out in almost a year. When I talked to him on Saturday he was pretty confident in her fitness level and she certainly proved him right!


                                • #96
                                  Got the book from Amazon yesterday, read about 50 pages last nite. Yikes.. to say Tim had a rough and challenging time as a youth would be an understatement. Always so sad when someone who experiences up close and personal how destructive alcohol abuse can be, then turns to the bottle themself.

                                    Good to see her back!
                                    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

                                    Remember the horse does all the work, we just sit there and look pretty.

                                      Starts with an 'S,' ends with a 'T.' You figure it out.

                                        Thanks for posting that White Camry. This guy Layden is a terrific writer and now I'm super-stoked to read the book. I wish Tim and Lisa lots of luck on Saturday. What a story.

                                          Quick correction.. LBT races Sunday at PID, not Saturday. 5th race, 7:05 post

                                          Here's more on Joe Layden:


                                          That article mentions Dateline will finally be running a LBT piece.. folks will remember they shot a lot of footage of LBT and Tim back when she first stormed on the scene, but the project was then shelved after the fairy tale fell apart on the SAR turf..

                                          EDITED to add PPs for LBT's race:
