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!

  • What do you guys think of this Canter girl?

    http://canterusa.org/index.php?optio...ngs&Itemid=397

    Sorry to make a new thread, but I am still in the market and I figure its to late to resurrect my old one.
    She looks pretty good conformationally to me, but I wouldn't know anything about her pedigree.

    I'm looking for a horse that is 15.3hh and up, for an eventing prospect. I'm not looking for an UL horse, but I would like something that could take me to Prelim. (so feel free to post if you find anything)


    Here's some other that I like, although the top horse is my favorite

    These guys will probably all sell before I have a chance to look

    I think they all look nice, except for the second gelding in the latter group - his head looks coarse to me, a minor flaw, I admit.
    But I like best the looks of the second horse you posted, the gelding, especially his shoulder. I also like his video, a nice mover.

      There's a lot to like in both the first and second ones' pedigrees. (I didn't look at pedigrees on the others.) If I were just looking on paper, the mare would get the nod. The gelding is a really good looking horse, but that mare just speaks to me. She may be a tad long in the back, but she looks like a sportscar.

        I noticed she had a long back too, but I didn't think it was too bad. But I agree with you, I really love the mare. She's been on for a while so I hope she is there in a month or two when I am ready to buy

          Midnightdiva is quite lovely. She is friendly, easy to handle on the ground and nicely put together. I think she's quite the find, personally, and might have snatched her up myself, if I hadn't picked up another OTTB earlier in the season.

          I'd be happy to answer any specific questions you might have about her. I took the listing for all of Greg's horses.

              Midnightdiva is lovely The first gelding you listed is also very nice, near me too. The only other one I know anything about is Shi'ah Sand, and just to say that in both of her videos she is VERY off on her right hind. Could be something simple, could be some nasty. The others all look nice though.

                It's not necessarily the length of her back that bothers me, it's the freakish looking way it's connected to her hind end. I would be concerned that it could make it a bit harder for her to compress for the tougher combinations when you got to prelim.

                  I love Midnightdiva.
                  Some of the others are nice, but she is the one I would most want to go see!

                    I love Midnight Diva and I like the look of the 2nd (17 h. bay) gelding, but the angle of the pic doesn't show him well enough to get a really good idea. I don't compete in eventing and I certainly wouldn't know what a legitimate prelim prospect looks like, so take my opinion for what it's worth... : )

                      Opposite....too many people want short backed when the longer backed horses often have more scope over fences --I'll take slight long over short any day. You want the horse to look more like a rectangle than square. This mare's back not really long. The pictures give that perception a bit because she is also deep in her chest/body so she doesn't look as leggy as she really is. But that deepness is great for an event horse...more room for her lungs! She is a lovely prospect depending on how she moves.

                        I would not worry Too much abut her coupling, I think once she muscles up it will smooth out. A lot of OTTBs look like that. I think she is a bit short necked and that makes her look more long backed. She has a nice big butt. Elbow and stifle are fairly level. And I LOVE her pedigree!

                          OK, I'm going to be the lone dissenter on Midnight Diva. Her shoulder looks a bit straight to me, as do her pastern angles. She reminds me of a TB mare I had 20 years ago who could never stay sound, which I felt was due to her angles in front. Midnight Diva is a cutie, though.

                            Its nice to get some great responses! I really like Midnightdiva.
                            Although I don't know exactly which parts of her pedigree are good, if anyone would care to enlighten me. I am still learning about TB pedigrees.
