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 bred to him 3xs when I was breeding racehorses.

        I like this mare a lot.
        The fact that she has that many races means a lot to me too - tough and durable, as were many of the Brave Shots.

          I have First Crack's full brother, who has been great. He's very athletic, sound, has really good feet and an amazing brain. He is probably one of the easiest horses I have ever worked with. Bombproof, slow, easy, and really really quiet. I would encourage anyone to seriously consider his sister.

          ETA: If anyone is interested in her and would like to se pictures of her brother, feel free to PM me.

                OOh, Viney. Now you have got me intrigued! What will that bring to the table?
                And which one - the Selle Francais?

                PS, what do YOU think of her pedigree for sport? I value your opinion

                  He's a French AA, TB on top, who was the leading eventing sire in France before he died. He is the sire of the amazing Petrus de la Triballe who was undefeated in six FEI events in 2009 and 2010 before he was injured. He beat Mighty Magic in the 6yos at Le Lion. He was off a year and came back this year to come 4th in a CIC 1*, then jumped to a CIC 3* which he won. Was on the French team at Boekelo this year, but retired before show jumping.

                  Sarastro has had more than a few get who are UL eventers in France. He was tall, dark and handsome and apparently had a notable mind and temperament. If you google him, you'll come up with his French Website which has Bleu in the name.

                  There is a vet in Western Canada who apparently has a good supply of frozen.

                      Interesting. He might be perfect for one of my WB mares. I have a Dutch/TB mare (half sister to Rock on Rose) who I bred to a Selle Francais once already with nice results.


                      For First Crack...I was already think maybe Royaldik if I can get some frozen.

                      I saw him at Burghley Stallion show really liked him. Several of the British breeders I spoke with who had offspring were very pleased.

                        I just couldn't stop thinking about her after I saw her in your post, and was trying to figure out how I could get her here without a divorce resulting...
                        She is a lovely mare - I am so happy she has found such a good home.

                              A friend just loaned me her elderly pinto pony as a companion for my weanling.
                              I posted about it on FB..and my husband responded: "we have a pony??"

                                I could probably sneak another horse into my pasture, as long as it was brown, bay or black - and Mr. Heinz would never notice. If he can't notice the upturned water buckets or the blanket his horse took off and stomped into the ground, surely he won't notice another horse.

                                Too bad the mare I'm hoping to go look at in the next few weeks is a chestnut.

                                  That's the way it is around here too.
                                  If I stick with bay or brown, they all fit right in.

                                      Where are these new pictures? Did you do a PPE? How far did the trainer come off the price? Plans for her?

                                        Enjoy the ride - no I did not do a PPE. She is intended to be a broodmare - she was not 100% on her video and I am not interested in her for a riding horse. If she is sound enough, I would like to do a mare performance test with her, but I have no expectations after that race career. Hopefully , some down time will help. Apparently she has been in training /racing since Apr of 2011 with no breaks, as she was not let down last winter, although she wasn't racing.

                                        here is a link to her new pictures - she actually has a great hindlimb, good shoulder, built uphill and her head is ok. Her neck is short, but I think will look better with some weight. Her legs are remarkably clean for 75 starts...

                                          I know I'm a bit late in the discussion, but a friend of mine had a mare by an Appalachee stallion that she evented up to Prelim on. The owner was in a horrible car crash that left her unable to ride for a couple years, and she didn't have anything done with the mare to keep her training progressing while she was incapacitated, but the mare definitely had more upper level potential.
