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!

  • Where to find draft crosses? Esp. Clyde x

    I have a friend who is looking for a draft cross, preferably a Clyde/TB cross as she loves mine a lot (as do I). The usual internet sales sites don't seem to have many draft crosses advertised.

    If anyone has any suggestions on sites, breeders, etc. that might be productive sources for good draft crosses, we'd appreciate feedback. She wants a pretty good sized one that her husband can fox hunt on.

    Thanks,

    SD

      I have nothing to add, but to ask you to post pics of said beast when it is located because Clyde/TB crosses are my FAVORITE!! I have one and have owned one in the past and both are the coolest horses ever. Good Luck!

              If you are anywhere near Ontario, check out http://www.ontariobreedersproductionsale.com/. Barb Bowen has had a very nice breeding program for Clyde/TB and Clyde/Hackney crosses for a long time. They are also great people to deal with. I know that Prodomus on this BB also breeds some nice-looking draft crosses -- perhaps you can pm her.

                Look for a BFF Incognito baby. I have a five year old 3/4 TB 1/4 Clyde out of Incognito. He has a great mind and disposition. Last year we did Young Event Horse, Pony Club and 4-H with him...this year he is packing me around foxhunting and a beginner rider in the show ring. Dressage judges love him, and he great cross country. When he was two years old, a twelve year old from across the street hopped on him bareback and he has been everyone's favorite since.

                  Totally agree that Hunter is drool material!! If I could afford him, he'd be in the "sold" category. They do have some really nice horses. I've passed on the link to my friend. If I could post pictures, I would put one of my girl up. When I was shopping, I did not want a mare and I was looking for a horse that was ready or close to ready to event. My last event horse had to be put down after a long drawn out injury due to splint bone surgery gone very bad.

                  I ended up with a 5 yo Clyde/TB cross mare who had never been ridden. She was actually a PMU rescue and had two foals by the time I bought her in November of 05. Can't say that we haven't had a few issues along the way, but she is absolutely the most amazing horse I have ever owned and I love her so much it scares me. Just sent her insurance payment in today to up her insured value by 50%. I am totally sold on the draft crosses and will never own anything else! And the Clyde crosses are usually so gorgeous!! My girl is only 15.3, and since I'm only 5'3" we make a great combo. Her dressage gets better all the time and her jumping is consistent and reliable. Sometimes needs a bit more leg, but I'd much rather have one like that than one that tries to run away with you.

                  Thanks for the link.

                            My friend rides for Dundalk Sporthorses, and they sometimes have horses that aren't yet listed on their web site, so they're definitely worth a call.

                                    Thank you - yes my gelding was purchased through barb and then we purchased a few others directly from the breeder - those were completely green - so if you are looking for partial or some trained crosses go to barb - I recommend that - she has a sale every may.

                                    We have three clyde/hackney crosses (had four but recently sold one). I may have one for sale in the fall after she is finished weaning her second foal if you can wait that long.

                                    My younger son has now taken over my older son's eventer and the transition was amazing - they are so easy to work with.

                                    You can see some of them on www.hotelfun4kids.com/horses.htm
