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!

  • Hey, Jessie P

    Make up the couch and lock up the valuables, I might be comin' to visit

    No details yet, but the bossman eluded to a fun trip to WV (aka - Mountaineer) yesterday. He wouldn't expand on the idea today, but I'll wait.

    I could have sent this PM, but I want everyone else to be jealous

  • #2

    Count me in among the jealous. I want to come! Don't worry, I will visit some day! Way to go on the card/table games. That's huge.



    • #3
      Yeah, I'm jealous, too. Have a fun and safe trip!

        Hey lady you are more than welcome come visit us up in Barn I ("eye"), stalls 19 thru 24. Email me for my cell phone number.

        If only I could talk my other half into letting me buy a broodie I could take a look at one of yours and you could bring it with you. But he is relentless - no farm, no broodies, but we do still have Nappy the wonder pony. We currently have 6 at the track now, including a Pulpit of our own ("Gasp - we have a PULPIT" -- smack self--"He's at Mountaineer for a reason, duh"). And we have a 3 yo Two Punch - Trempolino granddaughter that is as hot as that cross implies - need roller skates to walk her - she is a strong one. And an older super nice Golden Gear - Raja Baba gelding with 300+K earnings. And a nice MSW turf horse who will have one more race for the year and go home to Ocala for the winter. And a Boone's Mill daughter just coming off a long layoff. Come stop by the barn, Darren and his buddy Pat are both from your neck of the woods, I think (or have been at one point). We can cheer each other on at the races.

          Hey Chevy, I think of you every time I go over the Newell Bridge, which is at least 5x a week.

          Kid Chocolate is a riding horse now for an equine massage therapist.

          Never Under is still running and was doing well til Bob sent her to Finger Lakes, where they really screwed her up in short order. She will be running well again in about 45-60 days once Bob gets her healed up and doing well again. She really loves that laser. You did her so much good with it.

          Chessie went home soon after you did and has yet been put back into training. She developed Lymphangitis about a year after going home so her owner is still waiting with her. She mentioned an inquiry in Chessie as a show horse and I really emphasized what a great career choice that would be for her.

          Scout had a year or so off and was put back into training at a farm or training center. They had her working numerous breezes up to 5/8 at the farm then started bringing her into the track but she refused to breeze at the track. The owner called me asking if we had ever had any problem with her refusing to train, which we had not. I told her without seeing the horse in a year and a half I would venture to guess her ankles are bothering her after all those breezes at the training center.

          I dont think I know anything about the rest of the ones we had when you were here. I sold Boom Boom as a broodmare for the WV bred program.

          You ought to see the grandstand. It looks totally different - betting and tvs on each end and card tables in the entire middle. Very wild. The place is PACKED too.

            Very succinct! She was such a cutie though. I have a picture of her floating around in my purse, I think!

            I thought of Kid Chocolate when I started taking riding lessons very recently. I keep telling my mom to move to Chester or Pittsburgh. I haven't been on vacation in a year and a half, and I really am going to come visit sometime. (Right, I'm sure a visit to Mountaineer sounds like a real vacation to you! )Hopefully while you still have a Pulpit and a Two Punch.

                Kid Chocolate

                Hey guys! I ran across this post about Kid, and just wondered if you had any past info on him??
                He's currently training to do dressage and has a wonderful home I get to visit and ride him all the time


                • #9

                    • #11
                      Oh yeah, and I didn't get to ask you, sorry, but how did you meet him??
                      He is so sweet and he's one of my favorites... he picks and chooses who he likes... it's hilarious.. He is a very very good boy and his mom spoils him... she has a website too... www.equineandcanine.com
                      Have a good one!


                      • #12
                        He looks great!! Kid Chocolate was at the farm when I stayed with Jessi for a couple weeks in 2005. I rode him around at a languid walk and was basically afraid of him, at least scared to ride him because he seemed so energetic. What a handsome boy.


                        • #13
                          Ohh I see... So Jessie owned him??
                          Kim (his owner) does some work at the track and found me my dream horse
                          He is very well loved and very well taken care of.. a bit spoiled I would say
                          I'm glad you could see the pictures
                          Have a great new year!

                            brings back old memory's

                            JessiP, how long have you been at the Mountain? When you mentioned going across the Newell Bridge it brought back memory's. I started racing at the Mt. back in the mid 80's and left in 96. Things sure have changed a lot since I was last there. I hardly recognize any of the names.

                            My very dear friend Deshawn Parker still rides there, his wife Maria and I are very close friends.

                            It was a shame to hear about Dale Baird, I rode for him for a bit back in the days. My husband used to ride quit a bit for him. Did Mountaineer have a memorial for Dale.

                            Thanks Jessi for the trip down memory lane.
