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!

  • CoTH Article About Arabians in Dressage???? UPDATE!! FOUND IT! PG 2

    Finally I have a reason to post on the Dressage Forum!!

    A few weeks ago I was browsing through the CoTH articles on the Home Page, and I came across a great article about "Why aren't there more Arabs in Dressage?", or something like that. It was a fantastic article about how the authors first horse was an Arab mare and everything they did together, then branched into modern day dressage. Can anyone locate the link for this? I searched for about 20 minutes last night and finally gave up.

    I hope someone finds it, I would love to read it!

    I think there are more Arabians in dressage than people think, the HA tend to show open under their other half - sad but true. My friend has a gorgeous Donnersclag (I know I'm butchering his name,sorry) gelding that shows PSG as an Oldenburg and his dam is a purebred polish Arabian. And there are many others doing the same thing.

I will definitely be showing her as a Hanoverian at USDF shows as she carries the brand.

        Just saying that many Arabian bred horses are out there showing, their owners for whatever reason choose to not reveal it.

          I show my purebred Arab in both Open and breed shows. The Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show has increased its dressage numbers steadily over the years and I think it is a good general indicator of the interest. There are fewer purebred's at the open shows here, but in AZ we have so many "A" breed shows that people may not feel compelled to venture outside. As far as the halfs, I don't feel their owners are hiding behind a different registry. It just makes more sense to be identified by a singular registry rather than falling under the umbrella of Half.

            I would love to read the article....anyone find the link??

            We have three successful PB and half Arabs showing

            4 time SHN FEI Champion KB Omega Fahim++++// showing GP
            2 Time SHN FEI Champion KB Jull Fahim+// Showing I2
            3 Time Region 3 Champion KB Kalilia Fahim++ Showing 3rd

            There are many wonderful Arabians in dressage and it is growing. Not everyone likes a big and tall WB.....there is room for other breeds in all sports.

              Wow! I would love to read the article too..... I have a Half Arab and dream of showing her in dressage in the Scottsdale Arabian Show someday...... When I first got to AZ in the early 1980's it seemed that the majority of horses I saw in dressage were Arabs.....and they were beautiful!!!!!

                Could the article have been on another site?

                Also not exactly what you you were looking for, but perhaps some people will be interested in these articles from several decades ago:

                    Yup. I show my Araloosa as an Appaloosa, since he has regular papers (he's all characteristics and color). And let me be honest and purely selfish: I nominated him to USDF as an Appaloosa, because there are a lot more half-Arabians - WB crosses like yours and the like - and fewer Appaloosas showing dressage. ;o) Add to that, my guy makes for a great guessing game at shows: Few people guess that he is half-Arabian. He has a refined, but not particularly "Arabian" head, and he's 16.2, so most people guess he's a TB, Hano or Trakhener cross (I tell them they are "close" when they guess Trakhener.) But on the other hand, I don't mind telling people he's half-Arabian and, indeed, his sire was one of the few Trakhener approved Arabians in the U.S.

                        Here is a picture of my then 2 year old. If I compete him as a half-Arabian, wouldn't the judges be looking for Arabian characteristics? Theoretically, not. I can't help but wonder.

                          sad that the breed has such a stigma against it as a using horse that owners that show open do not want to claim it's heritage.

                            All of the Sport Horse classes at Arabian shows are judged by open Dressage or Hunter judges. I just showed my Escudo II filly at her first Arabian show yesterday and she took the Res. Championship In Hand. She had the highest scores for gaits of all the horses shown. She was a little too frisky (pouring down rain & hail) and got dinged pretty good on the manners score which dropped her down - oh well, Babies what do you do?

                            So my point is, being half WB or TB really helps you in the Sport Horse classes as they are more they type of horse that the judges are used to judging. They tend to score higher than the PB's.

                              There is no stigma, an athlete is an athlete

                              If I take my athlete to a show, and we do well, then that is what counts. Unfortunately, at this point in time, high scoring Arabian = saddlleseat, and my horses are not that. Money has talked too long here.

                              I'm part of the new direction of Arabian horses. I ride them because I love them, as they are fun, bright and spirited. They don't hit their jaw at the trot nor are their tails dragging the ground. The old Arabian world values this type of horse. Go check out Scottsdale for a breed in transition. You'll see both.

                              We hunter pace, jump and do dressage. We don't do saddleseat nor halter.

                                No, trust me, if you do dressage they will be looking for dressage, not breed characteristics. Same with hunters - they will look for a hunter. Do you think they might look harder for improper behaviour or what?

                                  My young horse is registered both and I show his dam and uncle, both Straight Egyptian. He's going to be lovely to ride with his very good mind and I like a good Arabian.

                                  He doesn't particularly look Arabian in his body or his head. I see his mother in his facial expressions, but I'm around him a lot.

                                  He's a cross. If you bred a zebra to an Arabian, and it came out with stripes, you'd tend to call it zebra.

                                      I show an Arabian in dressage. He is purebred with a head that is unmistakably typey. But he's nicely put together and I get a lot of compliments on him. I honestly think any stigma exists mostly in the owners' heads.

                                        So true.

                                        It is not about trying to ride something that "looks" like a warmblood for me... It is about trying to ride something that is obviously their own breed well enough for it to matter very little what breed it was in the first place

                                        Judges are not your enemy... Gravity and time are

                                        In dressage the rider gets plenty of comments too... I know I have
