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!

  • Sporthorse breeders in MD/VA?

    I'm not currently looking for a prospect but might be in the semi-near future. I'm a bit new to the area and wondering which farms are in the area breeding sporthorse prospects? I'd be looking for a hunter that would grow to at least 16.2hh. Doesn't have to be a warmblood, I'm quite fond of TBs and currently own an OTTB. I won't have a fortune to spend, so I guess at this point I'm just window shopping. Never hurts to get plenty of research in ahead of time though. Any websites/names would be much appreciated. Thanks!

      There is a two year old in training sale in Timonium the Monday after Preakness. You can get a two year old for less than 2k that is broke.

            We are in VA. We have a few foals per year and skies the limit for them. Hard to say what they will become, but have a little bit if everything.

            Some have become jumpers,eventers, and shown in hunter breeding classes.

            You're always welcome for a visit.

              I got my really lovely 2yo mare from a guy who has a small but extremely well thought out Holsteiner breeding program near Frederick. I hope to get many future babies from him despite the cross-country travel that entails!

                    Last Laugh Farm

                    Not to far over the MD border is Last Laugh Farm in Grantville, PA. They have a lovely breeding program with young horses available that could go in a number of rings. They breed several foals a year, and prefer to keep them till they are started under saddle, so they usually have several on farm to try at a time. We are waiting for a break in the weather to go and pick up our new boy from them. I can't wait! I got to meet him as a 3 month old foal at his inspection and now he is turning 3. I can't wait to finally get him home and having a riding horse to show. It has been a long time. David and Ellen are great to work with and will make finding your next prospect and fun one. Good luck.

                        Thanks Lindsey, this means a lot coming from a GP jumper like yourself. I have moved from Waters Edge to a small farm near Columbia, MD. Waters Edge will continue to breed with a few mares I sold her. I have 2 babies coming in the next couple of months, and a 3 year old Cassini II colt in Germany that will be started next month. I may be accross the country, but at least I am not accross the pond! Ha Ha right?

                        Thanks again.

                          The MidAtlantic Hanoverian Breeders can organize a multi-farm visit for anyone shopping for young prospects - foals through under saddle youngsters both with and without show experience.

                                This may be further than you want to go, but Rolling Stone Farm in Slatington Pa usually has a very good selection of nice prospects for various disciplines.

                                    That would have been even easier to get to from my [former] company HQ, Tim....I feel like with your location you really should be part of the Q family rather than the company you're at! I'm working with the LT facility in Frederick, and I'm sure my boss can't figure out why I keep offering to go meet with them in person. When the subject comes up there's an [unspoken] thought process that goes something like this: "ah yes, it would be a nice time to plan a visit to see some lovely Holsteiner babies." You'll have to post FB pics when your babies arrive so I know when to plan my "business" trip

                                    And yes, much easier to ship from the other coast than another country

                                      I would enjoy your visit Lindsey, and thanks for the FB pics of Cassiana, I will be sure to show you the babies when they arrive. 1st one at the end of March. You will have to let me know how things are going with the Q folks, next time when we chat.

                                        We are just over the MD line in PA near Gettysburg, just over an hour from Leesburg. We have been breeding warmbloods for over 30 years, including top hunters such as Oberon, Sail Away, Enough Said. We have also bred some FEI Level Dressage horses as well. We stand the stallion Beste Gold, who is producing Amateur friendly 3'6" and Derby horses, and FEI prospects. We have some very talented youngsters line bred from Absatz( perhaps the most prolific Hann blood in Hunters in the USA) Our homebrbeds are reasonably priced and at all stages of growth and training.
