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!

        Thanks Janeway. The good news is that Roy, Brenda's son has a great life at my farm, looks exactly like his mother so I can keep her memory alive.....and I have a lovely mare now I compete. Though she is a bay, she has her chestnut mare moments (which ironically Brenda Starr never had, not even once.) So perhaps it should be, Bay Mare Beware.

          I have to say this is one of my most hated wive's tales!!! I have had horses/ponies since 4yo and showed many others for others and the worst ones always seemed to be dark in color, either black or dark bay and not always mares. I personally love mares and find nothing more flashy than a dark chestnut with lots of white! My best producing mare is a chestnut Grandaughter of Secretariat. All of her babies inherit her heart and her jumping ability. But she also has amazing gaits and a uphill build (not always common in TBs). She is in several Main Mare Books even tho her poor front legs are hideous looking from racing injuries. She somehow remains sound and produces one beauty after another. Her first born is a 4' jumper 17.3h chestnut gelding by Art Deco.

          I currently have a gorgeous chestnut filly with bling by Rousseau out of a Holsteiner mare that competed thru 4th level. This filly did great at her inspection and was tied for 7th in the huge open fillies of 2012 class at DAD and 8th in the even huger Oldenburg NA class (which was all ages) at DAD! Yet not one inquiry on her??? I was talking to a friend about her the other day and she said, well too bad she wasn't born bay!!!! Ughhhhhh

              WOW! What power and "try" she has--and she's such a beauty to boot

              I'm a sucker for a good chestnut mare...

                Genuine Risk was a well known TB race horse. And she was chestnut. She put some "boys " in their place during her racing career.

                        I started a thread about this (to me totally irrational) prejudice against chestnut mares on the H/J forum once. I was curious about how it got started and got some interesting replies.

                          Feine Dame, Silver Medalist 1992 Barcelona Olympics, ridden by Herbert Blocker of Germany. If I remember correctly, she was late in the go and the first horse to go all the straight routes. What a cross country machine!

                            Hadn't thought of that horse in a-g-e-s but as a kid, she was one I used to fantasize that I owned. Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

                              Anybody remember the showjumper mare Threes & Sevens??

                              I believe she was a chestnut mare. And a QH at that.
                              Show me your horse and I will tell you who you are.

                                Thanks so much for the reminder! Indeed, she was FANSTASTIC-- the first horse to show that those straight routes could be done-- which she had to do herself to get the silver because she (a Holsteiner) couldn't compete against TB speed any other way! What an amazing mare, and, indeed, chestnut (I've gotta dig out that video again now!). For me, Feine Dame's performance was the 2nd most memorable of that Olympics-- right behind Classic Touch flying like a bird to individual SJ gold after losing her bridle in the team competition. What a year for Holsteiner mares-- a big reason why I spent years trying to breed myself one.

                                  just a small shout out to Somethingroyal. She was pretty important, especially once you start talking about all those great Secretariat daughters.
                                  Your crazy is showing. You might want to tuck that back in.

                                    I have an 18-year old chestnut mare that I have owned for 15 years and was retired this year from a very successful horse show career. In her 12 years of showing she had one bad day (at Harrisburg) and won many titles. She carted me around and even at her last show (a AA) she won the tri-color when she should have stopped at every jump.

                                    She was the very best and I won't ever find a horse like her. She is retired from showing but I still ride her and love every minute of it. Some of us just get lucky. Anyone who makes generalizations about these wonderful mares should be stoned!
