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!

      Our pony club girls had the opportunity to meet him and help groom him to prepare for a stallion showcase. Great horse, great temperament, beautiful mover!

            I wrote a longer post earlier but deleted it. I don't want to rain on anyone's parade, but I don't see the point of the question. Every horse is an individual. The vast majority of horses at GP are Warmbloods, but the vast majority of Warmbloods don't get to GP. We all know there are non-Warmbloods competing at GP, but they're rare. Knowing that non-Warmbloods can make it to Grand Prix doesn't make it any more or less likely than mine or yours will. I think sometimes we spend too much time worrying about these things, instead of just riding the horse we have to the best of our (and their) ability.

              That seems like a rather personal attack. That poster (MysticOakRanch) said nothing about her own riding, what level she rides etc. Just that two non-WB GP horses had done a photo shoot at her ranch.

                In all fairness, I wrote a post after MysticOak's that I deleted. Maybe she was commenting on mine. Attack me if you're going to attack anyone, but better still don't attack at all

                      I was just commenting on the OPs question - that we had two GP horses at my place last week (not sure if my stallion qualifies as a WB - he is American Warmblood, but not traditional Euro WB) that met the OPs criteria. Non-WB, GP horses.

                      I am not a GP rider - currently showing 4th level, but I don't think that is relevant? I'm not in attack mode at all, and must have missed the deleted post. Was it aimed at my post?

                        If you don't see the point... don't answer.

                        The OP asked a question, and there are some helpful links to other threads. I don't, for example, remember seeing the link to Rubi.


                        I ride an "off breed" who I'm pretty sure would do well in WB inspection if he were a mare, and who has lots of talent. He's lighter in the body, smaller hooved and longer-legged than a typical WB, but still of a similar type. If he were talented yet looked drastically different from most warmbloods, I would be eating up every image of an upper level non-warmblood I could, given so many folks think a warmblood is the ONLY way to go. I still enjoy them anyway, especially because you see a variety of riding - spectacularly good as well as not so much - more than you do with international GP warmbloods in general. It's just fun and interesting.

                          Not at all mystic it was an error that it had anything to do with your post ..

                          It was a general post and so was mine in addition to it but neither was directed at you

                              I think it's refreshing to see lots of different "models" of horses in the same competition. In any competition, not just dressage, for that matter!
                              I especially love to see the "little guys" (Morgans, Connemaras, etc.). And it's not that I have anything against WBs, I grew up riding them. I just like variety. And as a small person, I'd much rather ride a Morgan or small Tb than a huge WB (been there, done that, ack!)

                                    Many thanks to those who took the time to answer my original question. I've been away for a few weeks and have just returned to normal life in front of the computer. I do not come from a dressage background and was simply curious to see if there was any sort of shift towards the more refined North American sport horse TB-type in recent years. I drew a blank when trying to recall if I'd seen any team horses winning at the GP level who weren't Warmbloods with specifically European bloodlines.
                                    Thanks again.

                                        Yes, the trend in both Europe AND the US is towards refinement in WB breeding. But in general breeders aren't using non-trad breeds to refine -- they are using the same breeds they have always used: TBs & Trakes.
