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!

    She's cute. There's a stretch of video ~ 39 seconds in, where it looks like she's doing one tempi changes. She's not, but she's got that new little skip to her canter.

      Half of the video is the filly galloping around with her tail in the air - any horse looks pretty darn fancy when they are higher than a kite!

      maybe take a look at her, and another video, when she is relaxed and in a more normal frame of mind. Then you can see her honest gaits, and what they might look like under saddle, since she is only 2.

      you can't tell much from galloping!
      Nothing worth having comes easily.

          Agree with Gucci - it is IMPOSSIBLE to tell how this horse really moves. There is not one second of that video where she is relaxed.

          If I had to make an assessment based only on this video, it would be that she is one hot tamale and NOT an amateur's horse.

              Well, she's fast. I sure wouldn't want to get on her or buy her based on this video. She may have great gaits underneath all that spice, but her temperment (if this is it) is not for me.

                Halfway through the video I was wondering if there was a reason the video didn't show her trot...and then it appeared for two seconds.

                Her canter work is quite nice, but she's not that fancy a mover at the trot. Plus the head and tail straight up in the air aren't good signs unless you're a really patient and well-schooled rider.

                    Well, she seems to think quite highly of herself!

                    That pogo canter is ... interesting.

                      dto.. She is a very nice Horse, would love to see her when she´s started u.s. with ~4. The asking price is absolute OK.

                        This is why I hate videos of horses going at liberty (even young ones), and would much rather see the horse go in some type of controlled atmosphere...jogging in hand or a few minutes of proper lungeing. She is so busy stargazing and acting like a dork that you really can't tell ANYTHING about her. She is so tense and jazzed up she is stiff legged all the way around. She's cute to look at but it is very hard to see anything else.

                          Don't care what her pedigree is. Don't like her one bit. Don't like her temperament, don't like how she moves, trot or canter... she doesn't use her back, she jumps up and down. Flashy looking though... and actually well put together. Asking an untrained young horse to jump around an arena, is NOT the way to present a horse... I would be very surprised if the seller is a professional... remember if you're talking FEI prospect, you are selling to professionals.

                              This is an Arabian, right? I think maybe many dressage professionals would not choose this breed as their future FEI horse. Not saying that some don't make it to FEI, but it's not that easy for many of them because of conformational challenges.

                              This particular film of her doesn't show anything on which to make much of a judgement about her potential. Hopping around cross cantering mostly. A video of her more relaxed, perhaps in hand on the triangle would be better. Also some conformation shots might be helpful if you really want opinions.

                                I am confused, why are you looking at such different horses? What are your goals then?

                                You are a very novice rider, try to focus your funds on one well schooled older horse with rideable gaits and lots of lessons which will get you much further in riding.

                                  Seriously, with that head and tail up so high, can you imagine? I realize she's at liberty, but I would suspect based on this (agreed) small video that she will be difficult to get round and through.
                                  Not an amateurs horse at all, although you state that's not an issue. If I were investing money for someone else to ride I still would say no.

                                    Even if there were things you liked about this horse (I like nothing, myself) and if she were an appropriate choice for you (which I believe she isn't), that horrible lateral canter is reason enough to pass.
                                    The aids are the legs, the hands, the weight of the rider, the whip, the caress, the voice and the use of extraneous circumstances. ~ General Decarpentry

                                      what part of her makes her look arabian? what do you see as her conformational challenges? it says she is a dutch warmblood.

                                        Oh my!, It is absoluteley fanominal how many of you folks have no clue of horses, how they move and act, how they socialize or show themselves off. It amazes me how any of you that responded to this video have NO CLUE. The best way to look at a horse is when they are in their "free state". It tells you everything you need to know, if you would take the time to LOOK AND OBSERVE. So many of you are caught up in what you think a horse should be. You are stuck in your "dressage frame of mind". For the most of u it is about CONTROL, that is why you guys dis-like this mare. Because the most of u could not handle her, or know what to do to make her a nice dressage horse. That is what she could be, a nice dressage prospect. FEI, maybe, maybe not. The price, well, you either have it or u don't. Horses are only worth what someone will pay for them.
                                        This horse is a two year old. She does not track up, why, because she is stiff all thru her back. Why, because her head is stuck up and out. She is stiff thru her whole body because she is a two year old and has no clue what a "dressage" horse should look like. Her hocks move nicely, powerful hind end, she has a nice shoulder, nice short back, needs to stretch out some but she is only two and needs to learn self carriage. Nice pasterns. I would think about it, for sure. Honestly, if you are looking for a prospect, work with your trainer. Stay away from these boards, these people know so very little. Best wishes, she is a nice prospect if you like her.
