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!

        I don't want to go into too many details, so as to not violate COTH policy.
        She is a registered warmblood, does not look like she has been inspected, mountain time zone.

            To buy a horse, I would really need to feel that I made a connection.
            To get the ball rolling here, based on your decription, I would pay less than 10K. I'm a tight wad though.

              Anywhere from $10,000 to $25,000. If the mare is super nice, maybe more. With some of the crazy pricing I've seen, the horse could be listed higher but the height will discount the amount. Pure Hanoverians will be on the higher end. Anything having TB in the first generation will be on the lower end, even if papered WB. If the horse hasn't been shown 2nd level, then it's not a 2nd level horse so that lowers the price. If it's been shown and scored under 60% then would pay much over $10k. If shown well, over 65% at Second, then would consider paying $20k+.

              Course,t hat's just me.

                Materiale class (in hand) scores are not too relevant to the price of a riding horse, although it is nice to have the fall back of a breeding career, it doesn't add much value.

                Was she imported or bred in the USA? You say warmblood, but there is a big difference between some old euro and newer american registries. Is she ISR or AWB? If so, I would value her at under 10k.

                Sounds like she has no ridden show scores. Has she been bred? That may answer the question of why she is only doing 2nd level work at 10, but it also raises soundness questions.

                So far, given her gender, height and lack of second level show scores, I'm gonna say $7,500.00. Less if there are soundness issues. More if she has been in professional training with a recognized trainer.

                  Bred in the USA. Not ISR or AWB, registry is daughter of European one and licensed by it .
                  Not been bred.

                    check on '2nd level'

                    Elfe, it would really help if she had been to any show at Second and had a few scores to her credit. There are some who will say 'Second Level' for a horse that can do the lateral movements, which may be done in a hunter-style ride rather than in collected work. If you have seen her yourself then you can be the judge. Having recent show scores would be the best substantiation of her capability.

                      Training being equal, height is the biggest factor after breed and age. Subtract at least $10,000 for anything under 16 hands in my experience.

                        Wow, I have a cute Pablo gelding for sale for $9500. He's 15.1 plus. So subtracting $10K, he is a minus $500.

                          To the contrary, add 3 inches and he would be worth $20K!!! (Depending on age, of course.)

                            Since he will be four in late September, I don't think he will grow another 3 inches.

                            He could grow another inch, tho.

                              i don't think she has much value as a riding horse (10yo, no USDF show experience and only 2nd level).

                              if she is a reasonable mover, has no soundness issues, and is easy enough for an amateur, i'd say 5k-ish

                              she'd be worth more if she had good clean changes and a few 3rd level scores in the mid-60's

                                I'll take him for minus $500 I was just thinking the same thing - I have a 15.3 hand greenie, nice mover, but under 16 hands, asking $7,500, does that mean I have to PAY someone to take her now?

                                For a mare with no show experience, I agree with those who say she isn't a Second level mare. And also dont' think "in hand" shows really count for much, except at least you know she's been out and about. If you click well with the mare, she has three decent gaits, and you can perform the 2nd level movements well enough to feel like they are "show worthy", I'd say she is fairly priced at $10,000 give or take a couple thousand either direction (assuming she can pass a PPE). If she is a fancy mover - ie, someone who knows the show scene watches her and says she can score high 60s, low 70s, you can probably up the price (how much? Depends on how fancy she is!).

                                I'd be a bit concerned that she is ten years old with NO show experience.

                                  To find out the approximate value of a horse, it never hurts to check the sold horses on www.dreamhorse.com

                                  Since I enjoy doing this type of search...

                                  For a mare, with similar skills to the OPs
                                  height range 15.1 to 15.3H
                                  age range 7-12 years
                                  and a registered warmblood

                                  The mares sold for a range from 5-11K. The average was about 7.5K.

                                  It seemed like those horses under 16H were undervalued. Apparently, if you are willing to go under 16H, then there are plenty of bargains to be had.

                                    Thanks !!! That was a great idea. As it is, she is asking a lot more for the mare and even though she is a very nice mover I don't think she could show second level now.

                                      WWYD? Looks like I guessed the right price.

                                      But what a great tool. I never thought of using dreamhorse.com to do that. It is almost like a "blue book" value, and it could be quite useful in price negotiations! If a prospective purchaser were to say to the seller who has overpriced the horse, "Look, I did my homework and it seems that horses like the one that you are selling are going for a between $__ and $__" that could be very helpful in initiating discussion. Thanks.
