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.

Her first colt (before I owned her) was by Weltbekannt and is an amateur's dressage horse. She is by Picaro (Picard/Pik Koenig) out of an SPS mare. She was imported as a filly. This mare has a great temperment which she passes onto her foals and is easy, easy, easy. She is intelligent, kind, an easy keeper and has great (barefoot) feet. She gets in foal on the first try, foals easily and is a wonderful mother. She is currently open and ready to breed.

      Shania Aglow 2002 Bay Tobiano 16 h, Sire: Spectrum; Dam: Afterglow (Art Deco x TB) http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/shania+aglow

      Minor LF feltock injury cut this mare's performance career short. She is currently sound, but it is not know if she will be able to continue in heavy work, thus I would like to find a breeding home for her.

      Shown very successfully as a hunter (AA shows in baby greens, pre adults) as a 4 and 5 year old, then continued in the dressage ring and competed first and second, while schooling 3rd. Ability to be a FEI horse.

      She is a maiden mare. Clean breeding soundness exam performed in November. She is not homozygous for the tobiano gene. Great disposition, easy to handle and work around, easy keeper, great in pasture or stall.

      Located in Raleigh North Carolina. Approved home with veterinary references only.

      View picture of her at http://chronicleofmyhorse.ning.com/p...e=ejews7a3fmxk

      Videos of her are on YouTube (search under BMargieRad)

          She is 16h with four tall socks. She is mostly dark bay (less white). She is EASY to settle in foal and had not required any special needs. She is a wonderful Mom. She is being offered as a free on-farm lease. Possibly for sale to an incredible home only (references required).

          She is approved Westfalen. A stud fee discount will be offered if bred to one of our stallions.

          This mare is leased. Thank you to all who inquired!


          • Last year laid up my fantastic 14KTGOLD all round mare due to back injury and decided to put her in foal late after fantastic inspection results. Her 6 month old, Dacaprio colt already jumps my 4' stall walls from a standstill. Now we are moving this year due to my husband's job relocation so I just posted her as breeding lease in classifieds but will consider a free lease to an approved home. She herself is registered with OLD NA but her grand sire is non other than Furioso II. Interested?


            • Consider my Furioso II grandaughter.

              WANTED – WB mare for the 2011 breeding season (longer term considered)

              I am looking to free lease a registered/papered WB mare to add to my young, small breeding program. I am looking for a sporthorse mare with strong dressage lines who will compliment my program and the lines I currently have. The mares I have are currently in training or had a late foal, and I would prefer not to breed them this coming year.

              I prefer the mare not be maiden, but would consider a maiden mare if she has proven herself through performance and/or has outstanding lines. Ideal mare has had at least one foal that has scored well at an inspection, takes and foals out easily, is 16+ hands, is a great mover, and has a great temperament!

              Although I prefer a WB, I would consider an outstanding TB mare (WB build) who is already approved with a WB registry that has proven herself.

              Age or riding soundness is not a factor, as long as the mare has many quality, happy years left – but the mare must be pasture/breeding sound.

              I would consider a longer lease or a forever home for the right mare.

              I am located in Northern Virginia – I will provide transportation for the mare, but prefer something East of the Mississippi (or there abouts).

              If requested, I will insure the mare up to an agreed upon amount.

              References available upon request.

              Please PM me.
              Sorry too green and forum challenged to know what a PM is so trying this: A friend recommended posting my WB broodmare in COH but until just now I only found the classifieds so just posted an add for my 14KT GOLD in the lease section. See also the post I just put in this forum. My mare is 15.1 but carries herself like a 16.1 that both dressage judges and others alike have not believed me and wanted to get out the tape measure. I first purchased her in 08 with the intent of her being a foundation mare , purchased purely because of her bloodlines. She had not been ridden for 3 years but I got on her non the less and about died when I felt her walk. Within a month of bringing her home we were already competing low level intro and CT and winning, I too had been out of the ring and saddle for 10 years. I had never had the pleasure of being top of the list after dressage scores before or having dressage comments such as "lovely mare" in the box. Her talented career was cut short after an old injury that I had failed to find out, came back to haunt us - every day I look at her I long to get back on. Within the short time I had her under saddle I had her out for a summer ride with the hunt and some baby green cross country for her first time, all very willingly.She was a premium foal at her own inspection. I took her to a late OLD NA inspection where she was the only maiden but took highpoint out of 12 mares despite her injuries causing less than the top quality movement she is capable of. She missed Elite mare book by only 2 points despite this I received a breeding discount to Elite imported Hanovarian, Dacaprio. I am a complete beginner at breeding but I could easily tell when she was in heat , called the vet he confirmed and she was bread the next day, took first time, saved me huge vet bills and angst. She foaled all on her own without problems- could easily have been in the field. Happily let me handle her foal immediately. Foal is a perfect blend of Dam and Sire. Her Arab side gives her good strong bone, feet and stamina for a true sport horse. I am petite so I bred to a 16 hh stallion but based on where the colt's hocks and knees are I see he will make that at least ,so her size does not hinder breeding height. The only reason that I am not selling her outright is because although she is 13 this year I hope and pray we will stop moving around one of these days and I can breed at least one more time from her- hoping for a filly next time. She has such presence and her coat gleams dapple gold with no effort ,she just takes your breath away with little polish effort. Her presence has thrown on to the foal, he has her white blaze and 4 white knee socks. Both dam and sire were chestnut but the colt may actually go dark liver.

                        9 year old, 16H, big bodied, dark bay unraced TB mare available for free lease. Approved MMB Oldenburg NA with excellent score and inspector's comment that she "is the type of TB mare that we should be breeding." Her 2009 colt was premium and high score colt at his inspection. He is currently 15.3H at 22 months. (by a 16.2H stallion) Mare is a good mover and excellent jumper.

                        I will try to get current photos of mare this week.

                        Mare comes from good sporthorse-type TB bloodlines. She has an excellent mind and is an easy, amateur-friendly ride. Got in foal as a maiden with frozen. Easy foaling, excellent mother. She's an easy keeper as well and sound barefoot.

                          Available for free lease, Whizzo is a 17.3h 11yr old Hanoverian mare. Successful Dressage horse to third level prior to injury in late 2007. Produced a lovely, correct 2009 filly. Has been back in consistent work since then but doubtful that she will stay sound to progress through the upper levels of dressage. By White Magic who is by Weltmyer out of Lyra by Lemon (TB).

                          I will track down photos of the mare and take photos of the filly next week when the weather clears.

                          Please contact me for more information.


                          • TB mare, Love Springs by Majestic Price out of Hello Spring by Satan's Orphan (by Crimson Satan). A beauty queen, 16.2 hh solid, dark bay, dressage bodied mare with incredibly kind temperament which she passes on to her offspring. I would prefer to keep her here at my home farm but would be willing to let someone use her for a breeding, either as an embryo transfer recipient or to breed her own lovely self. Just to give her something to do. Alternatively, I'd consider relactating her for a nurse mare if someone had an orphaned foal as she is an amazing mama. I have enough young horses to work with and don't think I should be creating more for myself right now. As I've never been a very good salesperson, I don't think I should breed to sell either ("Oh, I'll sell him next year. Ok, maybe next year. Well, how about next year?").

                            I have two of her sons who are both lovely, excellent minded, and athletic. One, a full TB, is coming 6, and will be starting Jumpers this spring, and the other, coming 4, is looking like more of a dressage horse (BIG, powerful, and very uphill build, his sire was a Shire cross).

                            PM me if you have any interest. Photos on request, also I can send you vids of one of the sons.

                            Thanks! Kate

                                      My trainer is looking to add a good quality warmblood mare to her breeding program. Free lease to breed or a forever home possible. Prefer MMB Hanoverian, but OLD, Dutch or HOL acceptable.

                                      She'd prefer a mare that is not maiden. 16.2-17.1 hands. Old style, heavier build is OK. MUST have excellent temperament and be breeding sound. It does not matter if mare is not riding sound.

                                      MaMare's post of Poesy sounded perfect, but we were too late.
