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!

    British TB: 1
    Argentine TB: 1
    Australian TB: 1
    German TB: 1
    Uruguayan TB: 1

    TB Cross: 3 (Opposition Buzz, who was listed as British TB, but is in fact part Trakehner; Ballynoe Castle RM; Manny)

    Irish Sport Horse: 12

    ISH/Selle Francais: 1
    Selle Francais: 2
    Swedish WB: 2

    Carousel Quest is by the Holsteiner stallion Carousel who is a son of Caretino and stands in the UK. Not sure about the dam's side.

    I thought Ghost of Hamish was one of those undocumented Irish-breds. Gnep would know.

      Thanks! I looked up Carousel Quest in the Britsh Eventing Database but there was no info there. Also no luck with Ghost of Hamish, who was listed for the Olympics as unknown sire/dam.

        Carousel Quest is on the BE site.

        This is Carousel.

        Opposition Buzz is by Fleetwater Opposition out of a crossbred mare by successful event sire Java Tiger (TB). So I'd say Trakehner-TB-Irish (something heavier than TB) probably. This horse is a very unorthodox jumper (overjumps, hangs legs) and isn't typical of either side of his family but he's become an excellent event horse.

            This is so much fun!

            Any idea how many of the TBs are purpose bred and how many are eventing as a second career or who got pulled from a pasture to event but were destined for the racetrack?

            Also, any cinderella stories that I missed by not reading the coth rolex edition?

              My Rolex preview issue hasn't come yet.

              But one thing that has been very common in the past is for very high percentage, but not pure bred, TBs to be listed as TBs when they really aren't. It's probably more common with British horses than US bred ones, but Winsome Adante was always listed as a TB and he wasn't.

              I'll be interested in seeing if I can track down all the sires and dams on the JC site when my magazine does finally come.

                What is he? jhodkin's site says his sire was TB and his dam sire was TB (don't know about her dam).

                  Not sure of the actual percentage, but he's either an eighth or a sixteenth Arab down on the bottom. with RID down there also.

                    IIRC, Winsome Adante's dam had a bit of Arab in her.

                    Now that I think about it, one of my mares is listed as a TB if you look her up on the USEA search tool but she's really *only* 13/16ths TB. Not sure how or why this happened.

                    Well, no, scratch that. All three of my girls are listed as 'Thoroughbred' with the USEA. One actually is a full TB. One is the above-mentioned TB-with-a-bit-of-Dutch-and-Irish. The other is 1/2 TB, 1/2 Akhal-Teke. If you look them up, they're all TBs. (I know I didn't sign them up as TBs, I like to be accurate.)

                    So I think this is a 'primary breed' situation. The USEA search tool gives you whatever you listed first. Not entirely accurate but probably fixable if enough people want to get more complete info.

                    Oddly enough, I had a similar experience with AERC (endurance org). We registered my 4 year-old as Akhal-Teke x TB -- and then AERC registered her as TB x Akhal-Teke.

                    Which brings me to this question: What's the preferred term for a not-quite TB? If you say 'sport horse', that tells you zippo. If you call your 13/16ths TB a Dutch WB or Holsteiner or Hannoverian, you're not giving away too much more about your horse's breeding. Is 'TBx' a better description?

                      Thanks for the info. Yes, I like TBx for describing them. But that is probably because I love TBs.

                              Why is Ballynoe Castle not listed as an ISH? That seems odd.
                              He is by the Belgian WB stallion, Ramiro B, out of an ISH mare.

                                He is listed in the COTH preview as Belgian WB x Irish TB.

                                And JER's right, I'm not doing any further analysis of the Rolex horses... I have too much real work to do!

                                  He's an Irish Sport Horse. His dam is not in the GSB and is an ISH. He was bred in Ireland to be a sporthorse, so he's an ISH whatever way you slice it.

                                    LOL, I will take your challenge! Blugal! Keep studying!!!

                                    I will report back on what I can find.

                                    (I thought maybe blugal had some insider info that I did not have. I am thinking maybe she just did what I would have done...google. )
