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 have been in contact with YC's owner and was told this will be his last year at stud. So he is a definate top contender on my list. There arnt many photos on his site but his jumping photos are really great! He is over jumping a roll top with like 2 or 3 feet to spare, and lovely form

    My mare is a cross-country machine so I have no worries with a cross like that

    And thank you Gail I'd love to meet you and see all your horses, sounds like we have similar tastes in thoroughbreds and if AFR is available down the road I'd consider breeding my younger mare to him.

      Vineytidge- I've been looking for yc offspring as well but he seems to have been crossed a lot with wb's an drafts. Which is a shame because he looks like he would have been able to produce good eventers. And it just doesn't seem like he was really marketed a lot so it's hard to say.

      It does appear that a lot of people have good things to say about him though. Bloodlines and breeding are only a fraction of how successful a horse is, the other part is training

        I have dealt with 2 Yellow Creek foals out of different mares, they are two peas in a pod, attractive, good movers, good jump and labrador retriever temperaments. They were both a bit slow to mature mentally - about a year behind in the brain I found. I doubt either will go to the Olympics but I jumped the older at 4'6" with scope to spare and honestly little help from me. His owner is good to deal with, farm is not fancy and YC was bred to alot of local mares that were bred for sentiment not quality, and most were not registered or seriously campaigned so hard to track actual success rate.

          Thanks I do really like the looks of him and I feel like my mare would be a quality match that would produce a decent eventer. Which is my main goal...

              Well we got an offer on a Promotional breeding to a younger stallion named Vantage who is by viva Voltaire... His jump looks nice

              Anyone have an opinion on the Voltaire lines?

                  I do not want to hijack this thread but for those that know Canadian Eventers maybe you could shed some light on the horse we just got. He is a Canadian Trakehner by Topas 2 has anyone ever heard of him?

                    I was looking at this guy too - thinking about the breeding. I have heard they can be hot - which doesn't bother us - he does look like a nice stallion.

                            Underutilized stallion, really good eventing lines - I love Topas and had a mare by him. You might want to get up with Michael Loew at King's Windy Fie(lds in Newmarket ON I can send you his email addy if you can't find it) as his uncle stood him and he prob knows the mare...

                              I have a friend who has a gelding by viva Voltaire and he seems very nice personality wise

                              My horse is an interesting personality, lots of character lol... Someone who knew her before me referred to her as the crabby mare and couldn't believe I bought her to event. But they were so wrong, she is really amazing and we only got to event for a couple seasons because I started a family and eventing jut wasn't the priority then

                                While I have not ever been a fan of storm cat lineage... There is one local who has the type of build I do like. And I know the owners and they've had nothing but good things to say about his personality. He seems to be quite willing and training easily for them.

                                  Gervantus had 3 or 4 offspring at the WEG, if I recall, even the Europeans buy Gervantus offspring (just sayin' they have lots of horses in europe and no need to go to canada in search of stallions).

                                  I thought I saw where Ilian de Taute evented 2star? (for all I know prelim in canada might be 2**!!)

                                  Doug Dean's are appealing too.

                                      I checked and Ilian De Taute is a GP show jumper, not an eventer. He has competed up to CSI*** in GP jumper Hope that helps.

                                        I wonder why Ilian de Taute's owner Armstrong farms desibes the 2008 achievements as "continued to event up to two star". I realize now Ilian isn't an eventer, but according to his own website, in 2008 he was quite an eventer.

                                          Gervantus horses that I've seen, Olympics not Weg, Gamour comes to mind. I'd have to pull my old CoTH with the pedigrees for rosters (the only ones I save) to locate the others. I usually save Olympics, WEG and Rolex, for the pedigrees.
