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 a 2011 model whoi is about to turn two next month. She's a mustang filly from the Jackie's Butte HMA in southeast Oregon. This litte girl is very sweet, loves attention, is curious, and one of the prettiest movers I've seen in a while. No pony stride here like my other mustang. She's about 14.2 hands now and I'm hoping she will mature to 15.1 or 2. Right now, not doing much of anything except working on ground manners and staying out of my space LOL. I plan to start her lightly late fall/winter and then not picking it up again until mid summer when she's well into her 3 year old year. My long range plan is for her to ultimately go training level but we'll see what she likes to do. Love her!

          I'm not saying anything about goals or plans for my five year old homebred girl for this summer because my record when I have goals and plans usually ends up in some type of something that needs time off.

          But I do have them, vague though they might be!

            OMG, me too! My life is full of broken plans with horses for one reason or another. I have given up!

            I have a 2009 model Connemara-Arabian that I also purchased from a COTH member "goodpony". We have been through our collection of twists and turns, and I thank goodpony every day for her patience with me! Someday I will make her proud I hope. She is bred for eventing and dressage by goodpony's former stallion Eclipse and out of a Arabian mare who's full brother is a GP dressage horse. When she is relaxed she jumps like a Connemara, when she is tense she jumps like an Arabian, so even though she likes jumping and will jump anything, I am going very, very slow with her (now). She was briefly in training over the winter where they jumped her proving her ability, but making her a little anxious about it, so we are working on that this year with lots of groundwork and relaxing flatwork. She is very special, sweet, smart, sensitive and has an awful lot to teach me.

            My only goal this year is to go to the West Coast Connemara show. She will be entered in the prospect division and will show under saddle if she is relaxed enough, if not she will do in-hand classes and just hang out.

            Because I know now to not make plans

            Here is one of my recent favorites of her.

              Oh, how cute! I just love ponies, too bad I am on the too-tall-to-own-one list. My favorite pony ever was a cute little chestnut that I schooled through Training before selling. I recall one particular dressage test that involved me huffing and puffing and kicking like a kid with the leg the judge couldn't see....to the tune of a 72% and a tie for first place. He was a little homely to look at, but super fun.

              Mtn trails, are you doing any events with your other horse this year? I know we'd talked about meeting up at NWEC, though I won't be there this year (again). Maybe later in the season if things start looking up for me financially and my TB ever puts on the weight he needs. We've been battling his weight ever since that abscess in the fall, I just cannot get him to gain much and with his size, he looks a bit like Skeletor right now. Not suitable for taking out in public.

                Mine is actually six this year but she just came off the track last fall so she's not even six months into event training yet.

                She won her intro level horse trial the other day on her dressage score and it's about time for her to go give BN a try at the schooling shows since thats what we're aiming for in the fall.
                Pics from the schooling show:

                Video from Jean Moyer dressage clinic.

                We're showing her as Caribbean Soul but her JC name is Money Holder

                I just love this horse. She's really straight forward, and while green and somewhat under exposed, she is very level headed. She's way more talent than I need though, and when Jean Moyer was here for the clinic, she suggested my trainer (who was riding her for the clinic) needed to hang on to her to be her competition horse. I got really lucky with this one.

                  I've got a 5 year old who hasn't been out and about yet. He's probably the fanciest mover I've ever had. He is a yellow dun by the Oldenburg, Gatsby, out of a Connemara mare by Grange Finn Sparrow. Donovan stands 16.1. He's sweet, correct, talented and everything I've ever wanted. *sigh*

                  Not selling this one.ever. Now I need to get the time to get him out and about. I hope to compete him by the end of the summer, depending on my schedule for competing the other two....

                    Wow my dream horse (although a little big! ). Any pictures of him?

                    I often dream about what I would I breed my Connemera-Arabian too, I think diluting the Arab part down to 25% and adding horse would make an unbeatable combination. But time is not on my side so it will never happen.

                      Ah, I don't breed either because I'm too old. I don't have any pics of Donovan except for what's on my Facebook page, Kirkwood Sporthorses. And yes, he's big... He seems much bigger than his actual height because he has this long neck set on high... I love him to pieces. He's all sweetness with a cute buck!

                          Hi Heinz, I'm not going to NWEC either this year or Aspen this spring. I'm leaning toward the Chehalis back to back in mid July and then the YRBHT 3 weeks later and then the Aspen fall HT. Other than that, I'll fill in with some derbies. Is NWEC having a fall HT?

                            Do you like the Gatsby cross? I DO NOT (underline underline) need another horse, but there is a pretty TB mare who came off the track and had a couple babies, her price is dropping because the breeder needs room and she could come with a breeding to him. I DO NOT (underline underline) need another horse, but she keeps catching my eye and had excellent movement in an inspection video with her first foal.

                            Well, I definitely have a greenie I can check in with! My Rory (Coronea Isle, ISH) is four this year and coming along! Starting to look less donkey-ish and more WBed, though that might just be because I can compare him to the infamous Odie . He's settling into work and we're with a trainer now who swears we will event, but we're really just taking our own sweet time. I've never had a WB before, so having a four year old who's big accomplishments of the day are w/t without brain farts seems wrong, but then again, I remember that he had a late start with everything (hello 2.5 year old who isn't halter broke...) and is super late maturing, and I remember that it's totally ok! I have no goals other than ending the year w/t/c and trotting ground poles, I figure if I have small goals I can't go wrong. Go out to some schooling shows possibly. Anyways, I think he's adorable (my DH too) and I can't go wrong with his personality...everyone loves him and compares him to a puppy, so it's not just me.

                            No goals with Odie, who is the same age. At least he's already jumping!

                              Cue enabling.

                              TheJenners, this mare is my neighbor's. THE neighbor my baby came from, the grey one in the pictures in my OP. He's a product of her breeding program and that is ONE NICE MARE (as is DJ Whitney, the other mare she has for sale). Her baby is super fancy and the mare would make a fantastic mount all by herself. She has a great eye for mares - she posts here on the SH breeding forum, although not often and I think mostly lurks these days.

                              I'd love a baby by Gatsby out of that mare...sure to be FANCY!!

                              ETA: Mtn trails, as far as I'm aware NWEC is doing the fall gala. If my financial situation magically changes, I'd love to go...there is also a PC group that is hosting an unrecognized long format late in September that I was really hoping to go to, even if only at BN. Otherwise, I'm just schooling at home and (admittedly a little begrudgingly) cheering on friends from the stands.

                                    As for my kiddos.
                                    1.
                                    I have a very cute OTTB.

                                    Raced Sept 2012. I bought him Oct 2012. He just turned 4. I think he's going to be a really nice guy. He is soooo sweet. Just a love bug. If I don't sell him as a show hunter he will make a kick butt YR horse. He has major balls. Great rhythm. No stop in him.

                                    this was him last week.

                                    And of course my 2012 Stinki babydoll.
                                    Swank Dezign. by Tzigane *Pb* and the TB broodie I bought, Swain Song.

                                    The kid is amazing. Just like Taz babies. I used him hoping to get the brain of his other foals and I did. : )
                                    She has the maturity of a 6 year old.
                                    She turned 1 yesterday. Happy Birthday Stinki!!
                                    [her barn name is Stinki because she's stinkin awesome, not because she's a stinker. ]
                                    I'm DYING to get on her. But alas, one more year to wait before I get to at least jump on and hang out.

                                      TheJenners, this mare is my neighbor's. THE neighbor my baby came from, the grey one in the pictures in my OP. He's a product of her breeding program and that is ONE NICE MARE (as is DJ Whitney, the other mare she has for sale). Her baby is super fancy and the mare would make a fantastic mount all by herself. She has a great eye for mares - she posts here on the SH breeding forum, although not often and I think mostly lurks these days.

                                      I'd love a baby by Gatsby out of that mare...sure to be FANCY!!
                                      Oh you are HORRIBLE!!!!

                                      I was just convincing myself that she hasn't responded to the FB post because the mare was sold. Where in Oregon? We're heading down in a month for the Sisters Rodeo, and (don't tell neighbor!) we'll have our horse trailer because we're "camping" in the hotel room that is our LQ. My trainer and I both like this mare, and I was postulating that mare could "pay" for herself with the foal and then be a mature project.

                                          Monmouth, essentially (which is not particularly near Sisters, at all, but not far out of the way if you go through Salem and take Hwy 22 east to Sisters). I know she is not all that active on facebook, although she could very well have a sale pending. I prefer the bay mare myself but since I have all of two pennies to rub together right now, I just ogle from the fenceline as I drive by every day and wait for the 2013 crop of foals to arrive with baited breath.

                                          Feel free to buy her so I can do a broodmare lease on her in a few years .
