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!

  • Picking Favorites at C.A.N.T.E.R. Sites

    Am I an oddity or are there others who enjoy going to the C.A.N.T.E.R. sites and try to pick out which horses might make good Eventers? If only I had more $$$$$$ they would all have a home.

      This is Bugsy, doing Novice this coming weekend, then moving to training the following weekend.

      Bugsy came from Michigan, as did another horse I got at the same time, Gold Bayou, but he hasn't done any showing yet. His owner loves him, though, and he's jumping and hacking and being a good citizen.

        Lani and Lord Alfred at their debut this spring at Mayfest, he came from the IL CANTER

          Sean and Fight for Victory. This one isn't strictly from the website as we bought him at Fairmount prior to fall auction, but I count him as a CANTER horse as that is why we were there. He's Sean's first horse.

            Stalworthy, whom I call Stoli.

            He has ugly ankles, big old osselots, but I bought him because he had a sweet demeanor and a kind eye. He's jumping little courses and hacking around, I'll probably eventually sell him on to someone for light use. He's so sweet.

            He came from Ohio


            • #7
              But he's from Thistledown & Nancy Scott remembered him!

              Jenna and Obie at the MSCTDA 3 day, where they finished 5th.

              Oops, this isn't from the 3 day, this is from their first prelim last year at Gemwood. Photo credit to Nan Rawlins.

                but will be later this year, hopefully.

                Julie and Gangsta, from IL

                  Jennifer and Flash, whom she bought out of the auction ring at Fairmount for $400.

                    I think CANTER is an excellent organization, run by a dedicated group of people that really care about what happens to race horses after the track. I've been involved in getting 3 horses from Michigan, 4 from Ohio (not including Obie), and 5 from IL, and all of them have been really nice horses for reasonable prices.

                    *However* I urge anyone who is not familiar with track horses to take someone who is with them when they go shopping, and to remember that up until this point the horse's job has been to go pretty fast pretty much straight ahead, and that it takes time and patience to put steering, stopping, and going on them. I find it very rewarding, myself, but it's not for everyone!

                        I want the little chestnut mare on IL CANTER right now. She's by Bugsy's sire, and she looks as agile and catlike as Bugs. I have no more stalls no more stalls no more stalls no more stalls. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                        I've been avoiding going over to horse shop with a client as I KNOW I'd bring her home....

                          NO you are not alone! I do it way too often! However I TRY to remind myself that we have NO MORE ROOM!!! I will be shot, hung, you name it if I bring anything else home with me!! But its sooooooo hard! I want all of them! Yet I have this issue with selling them, sadly I have A LOT of lifers!!

                              Laz......Are you talking about Lady Landmark?


                              • Original Poster

                                Linny.......I couldn't find yours, but at Illinois I kind of liked Cheifs oil and at W. Va. I liked Miss Leone, Blackscratch, Castle Bob, and best of all Burtonsville.

                                  Yes, I was talking about Lady Landmark. I have it on good authority she could be bought cheaply to the right person. *sigh* Bugsy was a pistol the first year I had her, but she cheerfully and bravely did a Lucinda Green clinic 5 weeks off the track, and later that year trotted her way through a 25 mile endurance race, finishing with A+'s on condition, and has never had a penalty with me at the horse trials I've taken her to. She is maturing into a brave and forward going, but reasonable and not spooky adult. I have a major soft spot for her...and I think Lady Landmark looks to be much like Bugsy--including the somewhat quirky temperment.

                                    Laz.......I should not have read that (about Lady Landmark's sibling). I will eat my heart out!Unlike the rest of you I have the room but NO MORE $$$$, NO MORE $$$$, NO more $$$$!

                                      inexpensive, cheap, not much money....

                                      The picture of Bugsy above(first picture) is from her first ever stadium school... Lady Landmark needs a good home... [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                                        Laz.......O.K. this is a long shot, but I know of a girl that could do a good horse justice but she, like us has NO MONEY! But I will work on it.
