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!

  • Grand Prix Quarab made her debut today!

    I am proud to introduce Half Arabian/Half Paint KB Jull Fahim+// (KB Omega Fahim++++// & HC Wild Irish rose) who entered the prestigious world of Grand Prix today. Jull scored 59.36% and won Grand Prix which qualifies her for the Arabian & Half Arabian Sport Horse National Championship show in September. Her sire Omega and Jull won all four Open FEI classes at this show in 2010. Like father like daughter she is attempting the difficult Grand Prix level. I wonder if she is the only Quarab in history to reach Grand Prix? I am very proud to have a true "Sea Biscuit" in this discipline and really look forward to her bright future. Thanks to her breeder Elaine Kerrigan of Kerrigan Bloodstock and her talented rider/trainer Chelsey Sibley.

    Update
    Region 3 Championship results for KB Jull Fahim+// ending July 1and a small brag

    Jull won both GP and I2 this weekend. Region 3 is one if not the most competitive regions in the U.S. for dressage. Jull has won EVERY championship test she has entered for the past 5 years. 2 3rd level classes, 2 4th level, 2 PSG, 2 I1, 2 I2 and now 1 GP. I am very proud of this fun and talented horse. Thanks For letting me brag a bit. It has been a long journey and I think she is worthy of some praise as well as her trainer/rider Chelsey Sibley. It was a great show with MANY wonderful and talented horses!!

        Super Cool! In light of the recent conformation/suitability threads, this would be a really fun horse to see a conformation picture of.

          Congratulations! Awesome accomplishment!!

          Having seen Jull and her sire in person a few years ago....I can say that she is a beautiful and very accomplished mare. It was very cool to see her and Omega do their victory gallop side. Y side. It WAS an out-and-out, full-on gallop around the coliseum....and then they both came right back and walked on a long rein. Both just looked like FUN to ride! And isn't THAT the bottom line for so many of us.....horses that are talented AND fun (and safe!)??

          Looking forward to the video...such a a great start, and you know it's only going to get better!

              Congratulations! My first horse was a chestnut Arab-The Egyptian Prince x a domestic mare, so I'm always rooting for Arabs or Arabxs.

                    Pic of Jull

                    This pic is of Jull at Prix St Georges a few years ago. I am going to get more recent pics and videos in the next few months and will post them here. I am waiting for pics/videos at Nationals at the end of Sept.

                      Springan Fefer was a Quarab and bronze medel winner at the 83 Pan Am in Grand Prix.

                                Oh, wow! I remember seeing both Omega Fahim and Jull Fahim last time SHN were in Idaho.

                                I hope I get to see Jull in September!

                                    Thanks for all your wonderful responses. The videos above are from 2010 or so but so much improvement has taken place since then that I hope to make a new one after Sept. If you are at the Arabian Sport Horse Nationals please come and cheer us on. I love the company! I hope Jull is an inspiration to follow your dreams with your special horse partner no matter the breed.
                                    I am at Starr Vaughn currently and will show Jull Grand Prix tomorrow at the Region 3 Championships and then Intermediate 2 on Sunday. I also have another KB Omega Fahim+++/ offspring Kali who will show 2nd and 3rd level. I am just glad to be a part of such a wonderful event.

                                    Here is KB Omega Fahim++++// (sire) in his Grand Prix Freestyle exhibition at this championship show last year. (His 2nd yr at GP). Unfortunately, he had a sesimoid injury last Oct.that has left him out of the circuit this year. Arabians can rock too!!

                                    Thanks for letting me know there was another prior GP Quarab. I was wondering if another had proceeded us in this journey.

                                      You certainly are an inspiration with your lovely horse. I am actually considering a half-arab, and my first mare was a half-arab (I rode with Nicki McGinnis back in the 1980s!). I have always had a big soft-spot for Arabians.

                                        Congrats! I don't think GP feels any better than on the back of an arab!

                                        I have a half-arab at my farm right now that has it in him and is super calm away which is a plus. His owners daughter lost interest so someone will get a nice horse!

                                        Keep us posted about your quarab!
