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.

  • VIDEO!!!!! Free lease on pony jumper/eventer 6 mths-1yr (new pic)

    I have a great little Welsh cross pony jumper would make a great eventer for a child. I need to find a person or place to free lease him so he can get some more experience in the show ring. I just dont have the time or money right now to show him like he needs to be.

    He is currently jumping 3'6 to 3'9 courses, has been jumped higher. I have competed him in the hopeful jumpers through CH/AD jumpers.

    He is 13.1h and a beautiful dappled gray. He has great ground manners and great manners undersaddle as well (not you typical pony attitude) He is not strong, but not for a beginner rider either. I would ideally like to lease him to someone/place that would show him in the pony jumpers or CH/AD jumpers or possibly event him.

    I am located in NC but, would be willing to let him go to a surrounding state, with references and a contract.

    3'6 Oxer

    3'6 bending line


    Yes I know I don't have on a helmet, and I know what can happen if I fall off and land on my head, neck, etc... but I don't have one on, and I don't usually so don't set me on fire, and tell me what I already know. Thanks

    New pic, Oliver and I showed the 3'6 division at a local stables and he went double clear and won the class. I think there were about 7 in the class.

    If i'm posting on Coth, it's either raining so I can't ride or it's night time and I can't sleep.

          Small adult OK?

          Hi Savoy,
          I am an adult event rider looking for something to lease in Tryon, NC. I don't know how you feel about an adult for the pony, but I am 5'2 and just love those little guys (my first horse was a Connemara/TB cross, 15 hh.). I've evented through Preliminary and would love to get back out there with the jumping and showing. Let me know if you think he'd be too small for me....


          • #6
            Oh how I wish I were somewhere...anywhere near you...exactly what I'd love to play with for a year!


            • Original Poster

              Bump.... this guy needs a kid to take him to pony nationals!! he will clean house!! Great little pony I am 5'8 and he carries me well, I have a video I will post soon of him doing basic flat work and a 3'6 oxer and 4ft oxer...

                I am an adult rider (25) 5'4 130lbs but on a diet !!!!

                I currently have an OTTB ( with androysis) and would be looking for something to do some summer riding on. I am located in PA( not sure where you were looking to send him )

                How is he with others ?
                Ride it like you stole it....ohhh sh*t


                • Original Poster

                  He is as brave as they come when your on him...but a total whimp on the ground or in with other horses... Are you wanting show him??

                    Yes, My OTTB is an eventer but its hard for us during Peak season ( June-August) and then nothing in the winter.....

                    I was always a Hunter/ Jumper rider so eventing is an all new experiance for me, and would still like to atleast get some ring time also.(although getting this guy to do some eventing would'nt be a problem either ) Right now Im just trying to get my OTTB out and get some experiance, So maybe both these guys are on the same page ??

                    How is he during the winter ? how does he do with just a run in ? Where my current guy is, there are only 2 stalls which are both taken but there is a larger barn where the retired guys stay ( where he would have a stall ) Its not ideal but we work with what we have ..... I do however try to keep the guys in work together .....
                    Ride it like you stole it....ohhh sh*t


                    • #11
                      Yes, but can he get his knees up?

                      HAHA just kidding... Boy that pony really cracks his back, huh? He is a DOLL. Loff him. My daughter would be PERFECT - 12-year old, 75-pound D-3 pony clubber who already rides a pistol pony with a lot of jump. Hers is 14 hands though and she almost looks tall on her pony already. Are you SURE this Welshie is ony 13.1? You are 5'8"? That pony of yours sure does fly!


                      • #12
                        Could he do the hunters and/or jr. eq on a good but local circuit?


                        • Original Poster

                          I am pretty sure he is about 13.1 +/- a little I haven't actually put a stick on him yet, but that is my estimate, since I know he is smaller then my 13.3h pony that does have a perm card...

                          I don't think he moves well enough to do the hunters, and while he jumps nice and tight most of the time with his front and hind end, his style going to the fences does not have any hunter that I can see. But who knows??? I will have the video's of him very soon.

                            I just sent you a PM. Hope to hear from you soon.

                              OMG, Savoy, this is no help to you, but if I had room for one more...wow! What a jump on that guy! Not to mention he is adorable...I do love the little guys...and ride them often, at 5'. My horse is barely a horse.

                              Shoot, what a great little eventer he'd probably make...he looks bold. Have you tried putting up a text ad with the local PC's? Looks like he takes up your leg awfully well if you are 5'8, so would maybe even be good for the teens! How is his flatwork, can he do the dressage enough to get by? I can certainly pass his info on...we're in MD.

                              Good luck placing him, shocked he hasn't been snapped up. I imagine he'll really be something with some miles on him, whether jumpers or maybe an eventer.

                                He is great on his flat work!!! he moves off your leg incredibly well!!! he collects and bends, does half passes... He is very brave I think he would enjoy eventing...Christina Trainor (trained Teddy before he went to Karen O Conner) was going to lease him but boards her horses and couldn't figure a way to take Oliver and keep the price down for me... He is super brave I haven't put anything in front of him he wouldn't jump

                                    I'll take two!

                                    If only NC and CA shared a border and I was still a Junior! Too bad we're so far apart - I might know a Jr that'd be great. However, last I heard she grew quite a bit over the summer!

                                      Maybe you should post on the h-j forum to see if you can find a trainer who has kids doing pony jumpers. He's FABULOUS! Emphasize how he'll get some kid qualified for the pony finals--lots of 'em want to go. He looks like he'd almost guarentee his kid a trip.

                                      Has he done the ditches, banks and water stuff for x-c?

                                        I will try that, and see what happens. Thank you for your help, I actually called you about this pony a while ago, and I think I e-mailed you pictures of him as well. Christina Trainor was actually talking to be about it but she is boarding her horses I think and said I would have to pay for him to go to shows, and I just can't do that right now.
                                        I will try the hunter/jumper forum, thanks again
