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.

  • 1996 16.2h Hanoverian mare (Bordeaux x Doon Again xx). 11/16 TB, TB elegance with warmblood movement. Accompished event horse; USEA Region II Res Champ at Prelim, NCDCTA HOY at Prelim, packed an AA around at Training after going Intermediate successfully with owner. Completely sound, really fantastic mover with lots of suspension. Has had one lovely foal by Formula One who is now two, caught with fresh shipped on first try, foaled easily, has been on a riding lease since then which ends 2/28. Was going to breed her this year but it is just not in the cards money or time-wise. So she is available if anyone is interested!

    You can see her on my fb page, Third Charm Event Team. She is the profile pic and has an album of pix (Bolivia).

    • She's by chambertin, who is by Cambridge


      • I have 7 mares available for free on or possibly off farm lease. 6 WB and 1 TB. Boarding rates on farm are VERY reasonable and you would deal directly with the farm. All mares are either proven show horses or broodmares or are out of proven performance pedigrees (they lean towards the hunter market). I will pay reasonable registry fees where needed for approvals. I'm working on getting photos and/or videos together. Please email or PM for more information/pedigrees. apequus at yahoodotcom.

        • Young branded RPSI Mare with impressive bloodlines

          Ecstatic is a 5 year old branded RPSI mare who just had begun a promising 3Day eventing career with us when she suffered a freak paddock injury which will put her out of competitive commission for a year or two. Believe she still has great competitive potential but would like her time off to be productive, so am posting her here for free lease as a broodmare. She is currently sound at the walk but still on stall rest. Stabled in northern Virginia. Her pedigree can be found at http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/ecstatic4


          • Available FREE to good home, or lease.

            Kate's Unique xx (Pembroke xx/ Prove Out xx/ Turn-To xx)

            1997 Chestnut Thoroughbred mare, approx 16.2 hands.
            Registered Jockey Club, approved MMB OLD NA.

            Kate is a super sweet mare, historically has been easy to breed, with no foaling complications. Last foal was 2010. Had several TB foals before I got her, and I bred her for a pony foal. Before I got her in 2009, she had a good breeding soundness exam (happy to release records), complete with biopsy. Currently UTD on all health care, teeth were floated a month ago. Open and ready to breed, she's already cycling normally. I would be willing to give you a breeding to one of my pony stallions. Good home a must. I'm focusing my program more on the ponies these days, and this mare needs a GOOD home. Sweet mare, good mover, great with other horses, no vices, lives in the pasture or barn no problem.

                  • 2013 Free Lease: AHS mare- GA

                    TRYING AGAIN!
                    Free Lease with Contract: 16 hand 1999 model sound and sane chestnut mare. Old fashioned in type but produces modern, very correct pretty foals with height and athleticism.
                    Grafenburg x Winnetou West mare.
                    The Good: This mare is as sweet and kind as can be. Easy to palpate and breed (no sedation or stocks needed). Very easy to foal out, predictable, excellent mother. Loves humans, easy to groom, blanket, super clean stall manners, wonderful to handle in every way. Presently out on pasture during the day and in a stall at night. Not a hard keeper!
                    Up to date on all vaccinations, Coggins and deworming.
                    Can be alpha in a mixed herd but not a kicker or biter.
                    I know her history from birth, and bred her to Pablito for a 2012 Foal. That foal is a lovely colt who was not only Premium, but sold quite quickly as a stallion prospect and will be leaving for Colorado this week to his new home. More Pictures available of mare and foal.
                    She is broke to ride although I haven't ridden her!
                    Prefer her to stay in the South, but would allow her to go farther for the right person/situation. Also approved for breeding with, and in the MMB of Old. N.A.
                    PM for more details on this lovely mare!

                    • Mares must be within a two hour drive of Reading, PA. Mares would receive excellent care on my farm and be fully insured during pregnancy and lactation. The most suitable ET recipients are younger mares of good size (between 4 and 10 years of age) who have had previous successful, uncomplicated pregnancies and foalings and were good mothers. Mares should be easy to handle, load easily, take shots easily, and be able to go barefoot. I feed excellent quality free choice second cut grass alfalfa hay, grain with Strategy, and have heated 75 gallon water buckets in winter. Mares would be out 24/7, with access to 12 x 12 stalls, cleaned and bedded regularly. Mares would be foaled out at either a vet clinic or a professional foaling facility. I have approximately 9 acres of fenced pasture, and only four other mares of my own on the property. My house is only yards from the paddocks, and horses are checked on constantly. My fencing is excellent, 5 strand plastic coated high tensile electric. Mares can be blanketed -- or not. Whatever you prefer. References available. (previous broodmare lessors, vet, farrier, etc..)

                          I am looking for a Cremello QH mare for breeding to an Andalusian Stallion. She does not have to be able to be ridden but should be able to carry a foal.

So if you have a mare - cremello - that is sitting i your yard and is a reg QH let me know.
