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!

  • Patriotic Passion any info?

    I recently purchased a KY bred TB. Registered name is Patriotic Passion. I think breeders may have been Kinsman Farm. Im not really big into the racing scene, but i really wanted some info on his racing past. I know he is tatooed and that he also ran timbers. If anyone has any info I would love it. Pictures would be an added bonus. And just so everyone knows he retired from the track with a double bow on left front and has had a great outcome for both of us. He has a mommy that spoils him rotten and I have my horsey soul mate. He is going to be sound enough to have a career and we are currently walking and trotting and he thinks he is ready to do more but im being extra cautious lol. He is going to be my jumper and might dabble in the hunters and maybe even do some equitation. He could not have come at a better time he has given me something to be happy about and i can not get enough of him. Many thanks in advance.

      Cannot help you on him but you might want to start with his breeder. As sweet as this post was about how loved and needed he was, the breeder if he/she is human at all will like this and may at least be able to tell you something. Doesn't hurt to ask.

      Just for the heck of it I checked on Kinsman who are his breeder and they no longer have a farm in Kentucky that I can find, it is in Ocala, probably sold or moved their stock when George Steinbrenner passed away 2010. His daughter, Jessica is very hands on and may remember him or could tell you someone who might. Just call the farm and explain to them what you are trying to find out and a quick bit on his history and his importance to you. This may be a little bit of a slow time since it is not breeding, not sure about sales prep though so be sensitive to that and ask if they have time for you to ask about a foal they bred, make sure you tell them he is not in trouble right off the bat, no telling how many calls they may get like this.

      Don't be intimidated by the star status, she seems to genuinely love their horses.

      I found a listing for them in Florida which is:
      352 237 3303

        thank you. Like I said I am not familiar with racing but he is tatooed so doesnt that mean he raced. I also have a dvd of him racing over timbers. I might be very naive in this though so plese educate me. lol

          No, a tattoo does not mean they raced. Races over timbers do not count the same as races on the flat.

              Most timber races are run at Point to Point meets without pari-mutial betting so the results will not show up on Equibase Brisnet or DRF.

                Some of the people on the Hunting forum are actively involved inpoint -to-points, and might be able to help.

                  Did you not read the post I made on this thread? I researched the farm, found the owners and gave you a phone number. The owner of the farm now is Jessica Steinbrenner, it used to be George Steinbrenner, in case you have been asleep or do not know he was a major football team owner (sorry don't know which one because I have been asleep when it comes to football as I despise the game). Jessica is a hands on owner which you can find out by Google and find an article in the Florida Horse from I think March 2012. Do your own research but at least acknowledge and utilize the information that was already given to you. Otherwise you are just pointlessly asking questions for which you really do not want an answer.

                  If you want to find Timber results you can Google that too, through the National Steepleche Association, covers timber races as well. Equineline.com will give you the pedigree, give the farm name and the rest is up to you now if you do want to know and just do not want attention for the heck of it.

                      Thank you Laurie , guess that shows how much I follow any other sports besides the horses. In any case, I told her he was deceased in the first post but the lack of any notion that it was read made me repeat without that since it did not seem to gain any ground the first time.

                      In any case, I persisted with the power of Google and found this where it reports that PP finished fourth on March 4th, 2012 in the novice timber with owner/trainer Larry Levy who hosts the Thornton/Fort Valley Hunt or some such. Here is the article:

                          You are welcome, but if you have had him for a few months and he bowed, likely it was that trainer Larry Levy, just so you don't stumble into some defensive nonsense on his part.
