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!

    SLC2, it is possible that at the time of the USEF registration, her papers were not available. Regardless, I saw them this weekend again at Latta and she was trying her heart out as usual. I talked to Patrick a bit. He just had the biggest grin on his face all weekend and the statement of "I just LOVE that mare" came out of his mouth several times. He is so proud of her (deservedly so). I don't know about the green broke when he bought her or not comment, but I do remember when they were at 3rd level a few years back. She is a neat mare and he is a great guy.
    RIP Mydan Mydandy+
    RIP Barichello

      deja vu?

        No, not really. People post those pedigrees there, fine. On the USEF site it says the animals sire and dam are unknown. Maybe they got the papers later, I don't know, but USEF has sire and dam unknown.

          I am an AQHA member, and just went and researched Honey Bright Dream, and she is DEFINITELY registered with the AQHA. Already used up my $10 a month worth of pedigree research for this month, but will reasearch her pedigree on the AQHA site next month, and then complete her pedigree on the pedigreequery site, as her pedigree is not complete, and I just hate incomplete pedigrees and always fix them if within my means.

          The official AQHA registry site, confirms the allbreedquery pedigree is legitimate. 07/03/1995 Honey's AQHA birthday!

It becomes a vicious cycle - big name trainers ride WBs, so we don't see other breeds doing FEI, so everyone assumes you need a WB to show FEI, and they buy WBs for their big name trainers, etc. I don't think it is limited to QHs or Tbs (or Paints or Appies or any other breed with three decent gaits).

            And - I find it very funny that some registries don't recognize that the QH traces back to - drum roll..... THOROUGHBREDS! And many QHs and Paints are high % Tbred - in fact APHA accepts 100% Tbred (OK, and I don't own either a QH or a Paint, but I am aware of these pretty basic facts ).

            Cool story!

            I so agree with you! There are way more horses of every breed and stripe capable to get to GP than there are riders able to take them there.

              Yip, Yip horray ! ! You go Pat & Honey ! !

              I had a very nice AQHA mare that I bred to a very nice Hanoverian (Beste Gold) anyway she threw me an incredible filly. Who placed at DAD on the line as a weanling and did go 1st Premium in the AWR Inspection but.....She was seriously brutalized because of the AQHA and I was told that because of the AQHA she'd never make a Dressage Horse. Sadly she passed away last year so I can't prove them wrong but I'm sure happy that Patrick and Honey at least did. I was so pleased with the outcome filly that I re-bred the AQHA mare back to the same stallion and do have another very sharp smart great moving filly that I didn't bother hauling to the AWR Inspection so at least she wouldn't be trashed there. My thoughts on the AQHA (and/or an influence) was to bred in some good work ethic and sensibility and some endurance for tough training. I'm just so pleased of Patricks and Honey's accomplishments I could just ...well you know ! I hope the AQHA has recognized their achievements ! I'll try to post some pics of the filly that passed...she really was special

                AQHA and Paints

                The reason you're not seeing her pedigree with the USEF is at that time she was registered with the Paint Association because her dam was a Paint but in I believe 2000 or 2001 the AQHA re-opened their association to Paints that are really of full AQHA blood but might have been segregated to the Paint horse Club at one time due too excessive white (like Honeys mom was) They might not have re-registered Honeys mom or honey back with the AQHA yet or ever.

                  I just happened to catch the title so thought I'd pop in...

                  I just love when an "American" breed of horse gets recognition at upper levels of dressage. You don't need to import, there's plenty right here...and you won't have to break the bank to buy one. No, they probably won't be 17+ tall and 1500+ lbs., but if you look beyond the stereotype, there's ASBs, QHs and their colorful relatives, and TBs to be had for a song...

                    You don't have to state your horse's breeding for the USEF unless you want to do so. I believe (I could be wrong) that my horse is listed as unknown parentage, even though we all know who his mommy and daddy are. I didn't own him them, and frankly I don't care what his USEF stuff says.
                    From now on, ponyfixer, i'll include foot note references.

                      But this is one of the big problems in this country when it comes to tracking horses and bloodlines. If people would sumit what information they have when they record horses it would make studying bloodlines easier and give the breeders the credit they deserve.
