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!

      My guy is 6 but he had a late start and inconsistent riding so he hasn't done much of anything.
      He is a 15.3h Dutch/TB. Home bred; out of my sister's super TB eventer who was about to go Intermediate and then suffered a career-ending injury.

      He just went to his first two schooling shows ever and cantered around his first course ever (at 2'6" - yay! Lol). Yesterday he went out and schooled xc for the first time.
      I'm aiming for a one-day at the end of May. I'll probably do Intro the first day and BN the second day since he has never been out, never seen water or ditches or any of that. He is a super trainable and willing horse. His biggest issue is that he has like a 14ft stride. I think if we manage to stay IN the dressage arena on all four legs that will be an accomplishment.

      It would be nice to aim for a novice by the end of the summer. Ultimately, I hope to go Prelim on him.

        My 2009 OTTB that bought me in August will be making his debut at a CT this weekend - WEEEEEEEEE - very excited! He is such a cool little horse, and much too nice for the likes of me. We went to Aiken over the winter and were able to get a head start with some Doug and Mara lessons. His name is Seawalker and he is a little punk!

        Here is a comparison photo of the day I got him and one in February.

        Love looking at everyone's pictures - GOOD LUCK IN 2013!!!

          Ha, I cursed myself!! Rory, who has NEVER had a greenie moment with me yet, broke himself today and decided he liked reverse more than trot. We called it quits after I managed to squeeze one lap each direction at the trot without engaged the R gear. And it was so-hard-omg-gonna-diiiiiiiiiiiiiiie sez Rory.

            My next project is a later 2010 model, so not quite ready to go to work yet, but she is a half-sister to my TB mare who is running Intermediate, out of an Intermediate TB mare, by Formula One. So I am pretty excited about her. She did pretty well in FEH as a yearling but got upstaged by half-sis and my colt (only so much $$ to go around!). She is an absolutely lovely mover, and has the most unflappable disposition. Of course taking pix in the stall while eating dinner isn't going to give the most flattering shots......!

              4 year old Trak/Connemara

              I finally kept one for me Mia was 4 in March, she finished 2nd to a Fred baby at the YEH test in Ocala in April. Currently 15.2, hopefully not to get too much bigger (we'll see). Mom is my 17 hand Trakehner mare and daddy is the adorable WH Top Gun. She is brave with 3 lovely gaits and a lover of a mare to boot. I couldn't ask for anything nicer.

                That has to be the cleanest, beachiest water hazard I've ever seen!

                  That water hazard is at the Florida Horse Park in Ocala The water levels were down as it is our dry season, so the sand is exposed. I have to admit it is a lovely water though

                  Longwood Farms (also Ocala) has one that is more technical, but it grows so much algae that the young horses spook from the "green" ripples made by crossing through....I have watched many a rider be unseated in that water hazard!

                        What about New Event Horses? (Not just Y/FEH?)

                        I have a 6yo TB who is entered in two NEH competitions this year. He is Montana Rodeo, but around the barn just "Ro". We have done a couple schooling events thus far, but I hope he and I will be able to make a true career out of eventing. He seems to love jumping! (I'm not going to brag too much, since I didn't breed him and everything, but I think this horse could be an awesome advanced horse down the line.)

                                I have a 6 yr old paint that I'm starting that has been on the back burner for a while due to pregnancy and blowing out my knee. I originally was just going to ride him western but he really likes jumping so he's currently getting broke to just about everything and I think it would be fun to maybe try eventing with him.

                                  Let's see.. I have one 5 yr old with a hole in his leg who is on extended stall rest so not much to report there...

                                  Petey on the other hand is still a super star and now at 5 years old is going to diversify a bit and try an unrecognized event and likely try to do some hound walking with Cheshire this summer.

                                  He has done 2 paper chases this year thus far in addition to his one outing at the March Tb Celebration show.

                                  We are tentatively planning to go out for a xc school tomorrow and he is liking the conditioning on hills and canter sets. For a horse who was DEAD last in all his starts on the track, he is far more focused when I do sets in a field on grass.

                                  He's doing very well with him jumper career as well, in March due to low turnout and a bit of an overly aggressive ride in his normal class, I tossed him in the deep end and we did his first 1.10 meter class. He was 2nd.... out of 4. LOL.

                                  I am aiming him for the 1.10 meter class at Pimlico in July which has a purse of $5000 dollars. I think he will be competitive by then. But right now we're diving into hills and increased hind end fitness and strength to supplement those wicked turns he can do.

                                  He may voyage into a USEF rated Young Jumpers class later in the year. That's at roughly the same height and it'd be nice to go play with some warmbloods.

                                  He has pics on his Facebook Page: www.facebook.com/PeteyCap

                                    I have a three yr old reg Trakehner mare. She was an only child when she came to me so thought she was pretty special. She has learned manners very well, now I would just describe her as somewhat ADD.
                                    This spring we have done lots of ground work and driving, she has been saddled many time. Often even when I don't have time to take her out I will tack her up and let her stand tied while I do her feet and clean up/chores.
                                    I have put weight in the stirrup and been on her once, my dh led her around in the pen a little bit.
                                    She was quite fine and relaxed, much more than I was. I think she is ready to put a few easy rides on but I don't seem as ready as she is.
                                    What happened to the confident youth who used to ride anything?

                                    She is still shaggy from winter, when she is shed out I will post pics.

                                        I'm very lucky to have a 2008 gelding, a 2009 gelding and a 2010 filly, all homebreds. Ianto is my 5 year old gelding and I think he is going to be destined for the jumper ring. The 4 year old, Jayvyn, has done two events at BN, and I hope to get him qualified for the YEH finals this year. Kaiya is my 3 year old and I hope she will also event, but time will tell. They are all related, but quite different from each other. I'm having so much fun working with them and figuring each of them out.
