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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

    Still looking to lease this mare out.
    Is this mare still available?


    • 5 yr old TB mare looking for a new job as a broodmare. Available for care lease as a broodmare. Mare is roughly 16.2 and a super sweet girl. Bay with some flashy white and looks like either a Sabino or Rabicano. Mare is currently in St. Louis MO but I am open to leasing out of state.


      • Editing to add--Located in Northern Kentucky, 2nd edit to update to horses available.

        My husband was breeding for the racetrack, but due to a lack of finances on our part (nothing to do with any of the horses' quality or ability), none of the horses actually made it to the track. We are now downsizing out of his breeding business to only his favorite horses and my, and my son's, personal horses. We have some for sale, some for permanent rehoming, and a number for broodmare leases while he decides if he's keeping them or not. We are having financial issues at the moment, and really need to reduce numbers before it reaches the point that we can't feed them. Please no negative comments to me. It's not an ideal situation. I am perfectly aware of this.

        All the horses are registered Thoroughbreds. I'll be posting a few in the giveaways section too. Preference is given to people we know, friends of people we know, people known by people we know, long term students of natural horsemanship, and professionals. Homes will be researched. You must have references.

        Any horse, for any reason, at any time, in any condition, can come back to us if they don't work out. And I mean for any reason--don't like their temperament, you lose your job, they aren't as tall as you thought, they are too big, you change your mind, they eat too much, seriously, ANY REASON or NO REASON at all.

        Here are the ones that are available for free broodmare leases. Links go to their public Facebook album pages with full descriptions and pictures. I can be contacted through the Forums here, Facebook through the album links, or email at Thank you!

        --Tempest Revealed (Revvie)--2011 TB mare, not broke and probably not rideable, best for sport horse breeding, Broodmare lease is preferred, but will consider permanent rehoming to excellent home.

        --Heros Chalice (Challah)--2011 TB mare, not broke but would excel in eventing or jumpers, sport horse broodmare. Broodmare lease is preferred, but will consider permanent rehoming to excellent home.

        • ISO lipizzan mare to lease. Good home, with excellent vet. Please message info. Referances available.


          • I still have 2 mares that I am offering for free breeding lease. Located in north central Kentucky. Local transportation available. I am heading from Kentucky to Georgia the weekend of March 30/31, so could deliver them along that route.

            Revvie--16.3 h 2011 TB mare. Broodmare only. Free broodmare lease is preferred, but would consider a new permanent home for her. Would make a fantastic broodmare for a dressage horse. Big uphill movement and build. Very lofty trot and rhythmic canter.

            Challah--16.2 h 2011 TB mare. Free broodmare lease is preferred, but would consider a new permanent home for her. Her best direction as a performance horse would be eventing or possibly jumper. She'd love to be an all around horse as well. NOT STARTED UNDER SADDLE. Challah has a strong personality and if going to a permanent new home to start as a riding horse, she would need a strong and experienced leader for the best experience for everyone! LOL! Extremely affectionate and kind, but very athletic. Easy to handle on the ground. Would make fantastic eventer or jumper babies.


            • We have some mares in Belgium that could be leased, daughters of Heartbreaker, Quidam de Revel, etc.


              • Free Lease as a broodmare only: 7 year old appendix sorrel mare with flashy markings. Has shown USEF, lovely disposition and jumps a 10. She is in Colorado but I am open to re-location. This is only a temporary lease. I would like her back in 3-5 years and so the long-term commitment is all mine. I will only entertain offers for great homes. This is a very special horse and i will have a contract in place to ensure proper care while she serves as a broody.


                • Very casually ISO free-lease broodmare for 2020 season. Ideally would be smaller warmblood (15.2-16hh) w/good bone and big feet. Must be experienced and safe for pasture breeding, my stallion is sub-fertile and this is the only way I will get a pregnancy. He is kind and gentle, albeit fairly inexperienced, so the bigger hussy she is, the better. Mid-VA area, close to VHC.


                  • Tentatively ISO Friesian mare for the 2020 breeding season. I have an offer for a foal out of a wonderful licensed Oldenburg stallion by Diamond Hit out of Farouche, but am still in the search for a mare to be the chosen dam. I am starting an early search for a kind, level-headed Friesian mare who would be available for a breeding lease (artificial insemination, no live covering). Likely I would not be planning on breeding the mare until late summer or fall 2020. I am open to either an offsite or on-site lease - if offsite, or a free/care lease, the mare would be provided the best of care and would be at a private stable. I am also open to a breeding lease at a breeding stable, dependent upon total cost. Located in Ocala, FL, but willing to travel for the right mare.
                    The selected stallion is wonderful, level-headed, and has been trained to Grand Prix dressage as well as showing talent in jumping. He passes his black coloring, his wonderful temperament, and his movement onto his foals. I am hoping to raise this foal to become a dressage horse as well as a jumper. Any suggestions or leads welcome!


                    • 2005 OTTB mare. Has had 3 foals previously. Excellent ground manners, easy breeder, outstanding mother. Ohio


                      • registered name?
