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 fits into two categories: unknown breeding AND pony.

    She is doing 3rd level now (or she was, before her recent heel bruise)

    I think I need to renew my membership here to post pics, maybe later.

            Mine, well actually my daughters, is a fat but very uphill pony that we guess his a quarterpony, even with his uphill build. Anyone got any guesses to what he is please tell me!!! He will be doing intro with my daughter this coming year and has done training level type in eventing, he has the ability to go to probably 1st level because of his age (14) and by the time she is at 1st level he'll probably be dead or retired

            Heres a photo of a friend and myself riding him

                  Not exactly ponies by breed but most of the time by size they fall into that range or are small horses...my Colonial Spanish horses of the western strains I breed most commonly called Spanish Mustangs or Barbs.

                  Cayuse Gold 148 cm stallion, 7 years old



                  Some of his fillies:






                  Wayward Wind..19 year old stallion, 14 & 1/2 hands..In this pic about half recovered from near starvation before I rescued him from a bad spot. He's lots better looking now.


                  Newest addition: Dunsmoke Maverick..6 monoth old stallion prospect

                    I have I rescue pony who I think is welsh, but not all that sure. I laugh when people here in the US ask me if she is German! In England they were like pshhh Native thingy. I used to jump her in the 138s but am now too big So I dressage her in FEI ponies

                    The year AFTER she was rescued, she looked worse before



                    I luv her soo much!


                    • #11
                      ^^^^^^ holy smokes I LOVE your pony! She looks marvelous, good for you! and good for her!

                      and I love "dressaging" ...'pardon me darling if I'm late for dinner, I was off dressaging..."
                      Being terrible at something is the first step to being truly great at it. Struggle is the evidence of progress.

                        me! me!

                        Started sort of by accident, with my 14.3h Pinto 15/16ths Arab. He was supposedly 15.1... that "ayerab" stick. Seriously, it wasn't deliberate misrepresentation, she never had a real stick until he got approved RPSI Sportpony then she got a real one. http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y6/pintopiaffe/sons%20of%20the%20wind%20show/softwalk.jpg
                        (more of him on my website)

                        At the time I was breeding him UP to bigger, and was all obsessed with WBs.

                        I've now come to my senses.

                        I am only 5'4", and a cobby 14-15h is ideal for me. Now breeding deliberately for cobs.

                        Two new girls are one of DB's fillies--full sister to Promise, a year younger, who will do some semi-cross breeding to Iberian, and because I'm falling in love with the rare breed, will have some CS foals too... the other is a 14h, as wide-as-she-is-tall blue-eyed, medicine hat APHA mare with an Azteca in the oven.

                        My jr. stallion may go over cob height, but will be a smaller stallion, with fabulous substance.
                        (he's a long 2yo now, but no current pictures... )

                        My guy is workingin 3rd. Hope to go back to showing at PSG in the next year or two. He'll be the first horse I bring from unbacked to FEI. Very high hopes/expectations for the Colonial Spanish filly.

                          i have a Sec D cob mare. Looks like a half brother to xvets Merlin up there. She's a Menai Dambuster baby. Currently 4 and still doing a little growing, but she's presently right at 14h. She's started, but we arent cantering yet. She had a foal, then i had a baby, we are just getting going again and nothing is balanced or "there" yet for either of us for that matter... We did ride in a Christmas parade last weekend!

                          She's in the middle:

                          Hoping for a training level show in the summer! I have high hopes for her. She's a FABULOUS mover! LOVE cobs!

                            OMG, you must be the size of my daughter, who is a super petite 11 year old! You two look lovely together, but I'm figuring it's as hard for you to find breeches and half chaps that fit as it is for her!

                              She's cute too. My Dambuster baby is also one of my best movers but I have to give "Mom" credit for that too. My guy is still growing and was hoping for about 14.2 but I think we're going to be a little shy of that. He's 13.3 almost 14 hands now.

                                What is the breeding of your pony?

                                What level are you working at?

                                Post a pic?
                                I have an Arabian stallion... he is technically a ponyyyyyy 14.1hh when he need his feet trimmed

                                I show Sport Horse under saddle... so not quite sure what exact level we are at... flying changes are our fancy trick as well as some leg yielding... I guess a solid First Level...

                                Not me in the pic, but that's my boy ... Black

                                  have a mutt that I rescued from off of a slaughter truck Very abused.
                                  He is 14.1 and we are working 2nd/3rd and am planning to do 2nd level on him this year.

                                      I'll brag on her a little more... I would LOVE to get my hands on another Dambuster filly... If you think your guy moves good at 2, just wait. My mare has gotten so much nicer in the past year than i could have ever dreamed! I had a baby in Oct, so i've just started working her again the past two weeks... I see her playing out in the pasture all the time, thats always pretty... But when i put her on the lunge line and she showed me she wanted to work... My jaw hit the ground and i was drooling. My husband was passing by, not the most horsey guy in the world, but he had to stop and watch... Her canter was a little crazy, but when she found a spot to settle into, it even blew me away.

                                      This was a shot taken last year with a 1 month foal at her side who REALLY sucked some weight off her.

                                      But NOW... I need pics of now! The suspension and lift that has developed in the front end... I'm just WOW.

                                      This is her '07 colt by Menai Discovery. He's in an eventer barn now. Cant wait to see how he develops. Would have kept him if i could have.



                                      I love that last shot...

                                      Last winter for kicks we put Reece in the jumping chute to see how she would do... Here's that video:

                                      While i would have liked to see her lift the shoulder a little more, she cleared the 4ft jump standards with no effort... Would love to see what she could do now with more muscling in the front end... She loved every minute of it. Any reason for her to show off and she's all over it.

                                      I dont think she'll get real "thick" like dad. Her dam was fairly narrow. Though riding her bareback in that parade last weekend, she's gotten very broad in her back, felt like i had done the splits for 2hrs when i got off her. I wanted a more "modern" cob than a "heavier" look. She's developing exactly how i pictured she would in my head. My husband has a lovely Irish/TB gelding, but for myself, i'll never own anything other than a cob again!
