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.

  • Mare Sharing--free broodmare leases

    We wanted to offer a place separate from the Giveaways forum where breeders offering or looking for FREE broodmare lease opportunities could get in touch with each other. So here it is!

    Mare owners looking to rehome their girls are still welcome to post in Giveaways, but we thought keeping most of broodmare lease-specific posts confined to one thread here would be more convenient and organized and allow Giveaways to stay a bit better focused on true rehoming situations.

    A few guidelines:

    Leases must be FREE, except for taking over the horse's expenses.

    To make the posts more clear, start off with a Bold Title that makes some of the basic info clear, such as whether it's a WANTED or AVAILABLE situation, some basics on the mare and your LOCATION.

    We'll sticky the thread for a while until everyone gets a chance to see it.

    TB broodmare for lease

    Thanks, Mods. I'll bite!
    Ini is a beautiful 15.3 TB mare. Great bloodlines (a Prince John granddaughter), a great flat-kneed floaty mover, great conformation, great temperament, great producer (last filly by Pengwyn placed at Upperville in the pony yearling fillies class last year)--the whole package. She is an easy breeder, an easy keeper, and is very easy to work around.
    She's also sound, for those interested. She has done some local showing in hunters and, most recently, lower level eventing.

    There are some pics of her on the website, www.fenwayfarm.net/Ini. I have a few better conformation pics as well as nicer headshot (she has a beautiful head and the pics on the site don't really show that) that I just haven't put up yet. Also pics of her last foal, for those interested.

      APHA solid colored Broodmare in VA

      Carolina is 14.3, would be great for producing large ponies. She is a proven broodmare, dam of 5 foals, has always conceived on the first breeding cycle, easy foaler, excellent mother.

      Produced color when bred to Tobiano, solid when bred to Overo.

      She is registered as Paint breeding stock with the APHA and is 14 years old. She is solid dark bay. Easy keeper, easy to handle. Was an all around athlete that I used for hunting, trail riding and cattle work before a stifle injury ended her under saddle career.

      No special needs other than a joint supplement, which I will be happy to provide.

      She gets along with everybody, just likes to make mare faces.

        OldNA Main Mare Book mare in Central Texas available for lease

        Tomboy is registered BWP and approved with OldNA in their Main Mare Book. She would also be eligible for BWP and RPSI.

        She is 16hh, chestnut and has a very sweet temperament. Her sire is Galant (Aram/Nimmerdor) and she is out of a TB mare. Had a foal when she was 3 and has been a riding horse since then. An old injury prevents her from progressing further in her riding career.

        Easy keeper with no special needs at all. Up to date on deworming, vaccinations, Coggins and farrier. In great health and weight.

          Main Mare Book Holsteiner approved TB

          Lacey is a 15.2hh 17yr.old grey registered TB. Shown as a Level 5/6 jumper before suspensory problems forced retirement. She is an excellent mother, easy to handle, and an easy breeder. No health problems and is pasture sound. Has had two babies (both colts) by Todd Minikus' Oh Star. First baby matured near 16.2hh, second is, at 1.5 yrs old, ~15.3.

          Her pedigree can be found at http://www.pedigreequery.com/hopkinsville+lady. Her sire line is the same line that produced Sacramento Song, grandsire of all those fabulous S line jumpers and dressage horses like Silvio, Shutterfly, Sando Hit, etc. On the dam line, there are numerous eventing and jumping stallions. Shown successfully for several years on the A circuit with placings in Wellington, Lake Placid, etc. Picture of her jumping can be found at: http://good-times.webshots.com/photo...35201664KgmNWo

          Judges first comments at her Holsteiner approval, "The pedigree of this mare is phenomenal and she stands to offer significant improvement to the Holsteiner book". Currently in foal to Quinar for (hopefully!) April 21 foal.

          Her colt from last year is easy to handle and was recently freejumped. Pictures may be found at

          More pictures of Lacey and her 2006 colt can be found at:

          I would prefer she stay in close proximity to me (Rockville Maryland) until the new foal is weaned, but I am open to offers from the right person.

          PM if interested.

            Trak/Tb mare for lease

            The owner of Dove, who just had the filly Ruby for me, is needing a home this year. She is by the TK stallion Hailo and o/o a t'bred mare. You can go to my website for photos of both her and my filly this year www.emeraldacrestk.com, photos of Dove ("Devotion") are under Broodmares and photos of Ruby are under the foals section.

            Here is all the info on her and feel free to email or pm me for more info!!

            She was a maiden with Ruby. She caught with one dose of frozen (and my vet has never used frozen prior to this breeding), she was "the happiest preg mare ever" while she was preg - absolutly no issues. She has been an excellent mommy and her foaling was textbook on day 337.

            The mare is a 3rd level dressage horse and is a joy to be around. Absolutly no issues whatsoever. Can go out with horses, or be alone, no aggression whatsoever with humans EVER. Beautiful mare with 3 good gaits. Very calm mare that is very level headed.

            She will need to stay at my place until Ruby is weaned and I have her inspected with the ATA (in early Oct in Jacksonville FL). I will not charge board for her while she is here until after the inspection... all the next leasor will need to pay for is their vet costs to have her bred. (my vet is not expensive either!). The owner only requires that you pay for her normal upkeep (farrier - the mare is barefoot, feed, normal vet etc) and pay for her insurance while she is being bred (was around $300 for the year and we would pay part of that since she is here until October).

            Human mom is a vet and is very easy to work with.

              Trakehner/Dutch/Holsteiner mare for lease/ownership

              Hi everyone,
              This may be a tad late for this year, but my mare is due on April 30th, and as I have no plans to rebreed her and she is retired, I would like to either breed lease her out or find her an excellent home (free either way).
              She is 20 years old. Pregelstrand x Flaneur Trakehner, bay with lots of chrome. She has had 3 successful pregnancies (hopefully the fourth on its way very shortly). She had an abortion two years ago at 8 months, cause unknown. She took on the first try this time, required Regumate to get the embryo to go, and the pregnancy has been very uneventful.
              She is in the Trakehner and Dutch studbooks, and is approved Holsteiner as well. I plan to have her approved GOV with her current foal.
              She competed very well at dressage and hunters before retiring. She loves being a mom!
              She is located in Grass Valley, CA and would need to stay here until the foal is weaned.

                Trakehner Mare OSB-A

                If anyone is willling to free-lease my 14-year old maiden ATA registered and approved Trakehner mare, I would be willing to donate a free breeding to my Graditz son, For Pete's Sake, who was collected prior to being gelded last year. Frozen semen is available. The mare is by LaFleur out of a Casar mare, has substantial bone, and is a lovely, lovely mover with an exceptionaly sweet temperament.

                    Swedish Warmblood Mare - FOUND HOME

                    We (Dodon Farm) have a 2002 mare by Salute The Truth out of a Swedish Warmblood Mare. Game of Truth is a gorgeous and correct flaxen chesntut mare, 16.2 hands tall, that injured her stifle as a yearling. She is comfortable but unsound for riding - she's got great bloodlines for an eventing broodmare, though! She can be registered PHR (in fact, we have the papers ready to go in), but was never registered with SWANA. Her dam, Gamine, was a 1995 17h dark bay mare by Galapard out of Ellen Shepherd's Devon-winning mare, Karinka. Gamine herself was never ridden due to having contracted tendons as a foal (which was never an issue with any of her offspring or any of Karinka's other offspring). The only picture we actually have of Game is from when she was a foal (we can take more if requested): http://www.dodonfarm.com/images/Game.jpg Here is her pedigree: http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/game+of+truth

                    You can also see her full brother, Truth to Power here: http://www.dodonfarm.com/images/Powy3.jpg and here: http://www.dodonfarm.com/images/Powy-2.jpg

                    We'd like to find a permanent home for Game, though we might consider a free lease for this breeding season - she is free to an approved home! Please email Steuart at dodonfarm@verizon.net for more information.

                    I just uploaded 3 pictures of Game that I took today (Friday, April 25) - will post more when I can get her hairy self de-haired and shiny. http://good-times.webshots.com/photo...39146725hxqYyk

                    Game found a forever home this summer that is local. With her injury, we weren't sure about shipping her far. Hopefully we'll see some of her offspring in the near future!

                      TB Stakes or Hunter Mare in PA - AWR 1st Premium- Free Lease

                      UPDATE: She is only available if you want the foal, in which case , she is now in foal to DUCKHORN, Paying stud fee, costs and board... I do have a TB breeder friend who has several mares she will lease, some off farm.

                      I would like to do an "on farm" free lease for my 16.1 hand TB mare, Dollars For Sally (Pas Seul- Our Native). She is not riding sound due to a broken sesamoid, but is in hand sound. She won several Championships in Hunter Breeding including Grand Champion TB at the well attended and prestigious MD State Fair (of 60+ entries). Several Coth'er's either know her from showing or have seen her at inspections.

                      She is a wonderful producer, First Premium AWR and a LOVELY MOVER with wonderful technique and scope over 3'6". She has had 3 foals by our stallion Beste Gold. Last year she was in foal at 60 days and barren at 90. It was too late to rebreed and this year I need to concentrate on my WB mares, since we have only three foals a year. I have a GREAT and very reasonable Repro vet and on farm frozen semen storage.

                      I do not know much about Tb racing, but it is my understanding that she could produce dual discipline offspring in Stakes horse / Hunters, and could be shipped to breed to TB sires.
                      Full brother to:
                      A LITTLE LUCK (g. by Pas Seul). 11 wins, 3 to 6, $489,894, W. L. McKnight H. [G2], Laurel Turf Cup
                      S. [G3], Princeton S. (MED, $24,000), Rushing Man S. (MED, $24,000), 2nd Meadowlands
                      Endurance S. [L] (MED, $12,000), Your Host S. (DEL, $8,880), 3rd Bougainvillea H. [G3],
                      Meadowlands Endurance S. [L] (MED, $6,000).

                        Many TB Mares and Welsh/TB Mare-Cleveland Bay Sporthorse Available

                        I have many TB mares I would lease out. Most have had 1/4 or 1/2 Cleveland Bay foals. I would prefer on farm lease and basically you would just pay for feed, vet. I'd do the care on my dime. It would be one low monthly fee and would include all normal vet, farrier, deworming. You pay only vet related directly to the foal. We are talking under $200 a month! I just have too many mares and would prefer to know the foals were going somewhere when they foaled. I'd even do it and throw in a breeding to my Cleveland Bay Sporthorse if someone wanted a 3/4 TB, 1/4 CB. Email or PM me for more information. I have many proven tb mares, including a small A circuit hunter and a 16.3 hand retired jumper mare.

                        Update: mares are foaling! I am beginning to rebreed, if anyone is interested they can still do it on a bred mare and just pay the back bills. I'd offer this all year long. Have too many mares but would rather have them bred then just mowing my pastures and burning hay! The 1/4 CB foals are coming and are wonderful. Lainey Asker rode a 1/4 CB at Rolex. These are similarly bred!

                        Mares Available

                            16.3H TB mare by Bit Of Class

                            Free lease available on a 16.3H Bit Of Class daughter. I am not going to rebreed this year and she is too nice of a mare to not use. She was 3rd as a yearling on the line in the IHF and a champion over fences at Warrenton. She is a sabino chestnut. I would prefer that she stays on my farm in FL.

                            Here is her pedigree:


                            I have attached pics of her as a yearling and a four year old, plus her dam (bay) and her 2008 colt.

                                  Free lease needed on my warmblood mare (unfortunately I do not have papers on her), as I am going to graduate school. She is in foal to Olivier right now and is due May 5th. I am hoping to get her registered in the lower mare book (KWPN) and get both her and her foal inspected this summer/early fall. She is available for free lease, embryo transfer, or just retirement after her foal is weaned in October. I will pay all bills until then but the leasee is expected to pay breeding fees.

                                  She is an 18hh buckskin, has competed through Training Level Eventing and First level dressage (but schooled through Third with changes). She is an easy keeper and loves everyone.

                                  She has an old injury to her right hind hock (still has some scare tissue) but still is sound enough for light work (walk, trot, canter stretching work) and loves to trail ride (and go swimming!).

                                  If anyone is interested, please send a pm. I can also send pictures.

                                    Also posted on Giveaways. Free 1991 Bay tb broodmare. 16.1H, Special Angel has had several registered JC foals. She does not have JC papers but this is not a problem when breeding tbs. She is a nice big, stocky mare, and produces large foals. She is pigeon toed, but has not passed this on to her foals or their offspring, so I do not believe it is a hereditary problem. She is a nice sweet mare with no vices. Open and ready to breed. She is an easy breeder and keeper. Located in MI.

                                      Horses should be trained in such a way that they not only love their riders, but look forward to the time they are with them.
