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!

    My birthday is comming up. Lot #2 would do the trick.

  • #2
    I am sort of fascinated by the 4 yr old Contender daughter. I had thought it was hard to find a young Contender mare...and this one is in foal to Quidam De Revel....which is also rare, or I had at least thought? This mare recieved 9's at her MPT in Germany through the chute and the reserve is only 20K?

      I would suggest that she may not be in foal, hence the price, but of course the contacts are there to confirm her status for sure. She looks really nice!!
      It does not surprise me about finding such horses in Alberta. It has been my experience that people tend to keep things very low key, but they are definitely out there.
      There are several other well bred horses, and I just hope there are buyers. There have been some absolute steals in the past.

        She apparently is not in foal. The ad says she was bred to Quidam but is open. So she either did not take or lost it.

          so many nice horses selected for this years sale. Makes me sad that I am going to miss it, but happy that I won't be tempted to be there to bid.

            Great initiative taken by the people in Alberta. Quality improves from year to year and everybody should take a regular look at what is on the market here in America. Prices are also generaly realy reasonnable.

              Did anybody attend the sale? I went on Saturday to look around a bit, but wasn't able to attend on Sunday. I'm not ready to buy yet, but I did have my eye on a few and would love to hear how the bidding went.

              Yes, I know they will post results, but I'm impatient! :-)

                Hey,
                I attended the sale and was really impressed with some of the quality going through! I got a bidder card but lucky for my wallet the prices went higher on those I wanted!
                Let me know if you have questions.. I can remember the prices on some of the nicer horses. Some of the two year olds did not sell, nor did some of the broodies in foal.
                Did not seem to be many buy backs though!!

                The Contender mare was *OUTSTANDING* and she went for $22,000!! A STEAL for someone! There was a bidding war on for her and I think she would have gone higher since the winner seemed pretty intent on getting her!

                  Lot #2 - The Quaterback -I believe he went for 12k or 13k? In that range anyway.. he was a cutie for sure.
                  It's really nice to see the Canadian Breeders putting some of those higher interest bloodlines into the market!

                    I wasn't able to make it unfortunately but am very curious as to what lot # 78 " Royal Ritz" went for? He was at my place for training this summer and was such a sweet boy..curious if he sold.

                    Was the Quaterback a really nice mover?

                    Not surprised re Contender mare. Was she the high seller?

                      Cool, thanks!

                      I liked 20, 33, 54, 64, and 90. Apparently I like Eastern Ruler babies!

                      20 was a pretty little bay gelding, just my type, not too big.
                      33 plain dark bay hunter mare. Just seemed like a sweetheart, would make a nice little hunter.
                      54 probably the one I would have bought. Just loved her. Greeen, but sweet and willing. Looks just like my childhood horse. Probably not the best reason to like a horse! ;-)
                      64 WAY too big, but I liked him as well. Same sire as lot 54
                      90 Just liked her. Plain, green, and I didn't feel she was terribly well shown. I probably would have bid on her hoping for a bargain.

                      Then again, I really dont' know anything about picking out a horse, these are just a couple that I got to see in my quick stopover.

                        Royal Ritz sold quite well, I believe he was one of the higher sellers for performance horses.. I may be mixing him up with another horse but he may have gone for 18k (either that or 23k)

                        #20 was really nice.. he went for a steal (unless he was a buy back) at around 9000

                        Dont' remember the eastern ruler prices but I think they all sold under 10k

                        #90 was ADORABLE.. I'm not sure her price, it was over 5k for sure because that was my budget and I left once it hit that since she was the last horse



                        Sorry for my confusion with these, my girlfriend took the program home with her that had all the prices written in it... whoops

                          To be frank... I did not LOVE the Quaterback.. he was nice and had some flashy moments but I'm certain there are nicer offspring out there.

                            Glad to know I'm not out to lunch on 20 and 90. Under 10k for the Eastern Rulers? :-( Man, I wish I could have bid!

                                    you should be able to just highlight all the results off the document and cut and paste them into a message? Might work!

                                      I just talked to the owner of Royal Ritz. I guess he was the high seller at 26 k!

                                        Something doesn't jiive. High seller is reported as Good as Gold going for $18,000-then a few hours later another update on Royal Ritz being the high seller...
                                        Wonder when the official list will go out...
