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!

  • Lauren Kieffer and Snooze Alarm

    I just watched a video clip on EN (since I cannot log in to US), and saw their sc round. What a cute horse and she is a really nice rider. Loved it.

    I saw a picture of them xcountry posted here somewhere - he had those knees up so smartly!! Really snappy, tight, all the way up to his eyes. He's such a cute, alert, happy looking horse - the partnership is obvious. Bravo for them. Best of luck today in stadium, the fans will be cheering you on.

      He's registered as an anglo arab, you can really tell when he gets his tail up.

        It was very cool to meet her parents the night before xc, and great to see her come in the Finish Box!

          SNooze was voted one of the AHA Ambassador Horses 2 years ago and has
          been on the cover of Modern Arabian Horse -- he's a really cool little guy and
          I'm looking forward to watching him on the jumper course today.

              I think he's really cute, too!
              She was in the commentators box for a bit yesterday and let on that they call him "Maggot" around the barn...apparently he was a real stinker for a while, as many Anglo-Arabs can be, LOL!! Once they come around though, they make awesome horses Can't wait to see them do stadium on the live feed today.

                I only watched a little bit of the xc but I caught the part where she was in the commentator's booth and said that he was an accidental breeding between a 3 yo TB mare and a 28 year old Arab stallion from next door. At some point he was sent to her trainer to be broke and she got him when he was 4 and she was 13, neat story.

                  Really? Doing some research on the pair leads me to http://www.pegasuspark.com/sales.html, where you can see that Lauren bought a younger full brother of Snooze's recently, which makes his dam 6 or so when he was foaled, and his sire 19 or 20. Not too sure it was accidental either... considering the farm repeated the breeding. Still, cute horse, interesting breeding, and great story!

                    They are breeding his dam to another Arabian this year.

                    His sire Serazim died in 2007 at 31 years old. He has quite a few talented offspring.

                      I've known both of them from day one. She deserves huge and I mean huge kudos for bringing that horse to Rolex level riding and doing it the hard way. I thought their XC was just beautiful, clean and classy. He can be a real stinker in stadium and I thought she did a great job keeping her cool and getting the job done so well. I'm very proud of her.

                        According to AHA, *Serazim was foaled in 1978 and Snooze Alarm in 1997, making *Serazim 18 or 19 when Snooze was bred. The dam is showing as a 1990 model, making her 6 or 7 at the time.

                        It could still be accidental, though - and came out so nicely the first time that they decided to go for it again!

                        My Arab mare's sire line goes back to *Serafix, too - maybe I can hope the greatness is in that line.

                          So excited for Lauren and Snooze. They looked so polished and in control the entire weekend. Their xc run was a thing of beauty. Lauren is an extremely talented rider - Snooze is not an easy horse....talented yes, easy no So excited about the pair becoming a 4 * team !

                            Very cool that Snooze was her horse when she was only 13! Talk about a true partnership, they grew up together!

                                I am a big fan of that horse (and part arabs eventing in general). We watched them warm up for dressage.

                                    Snooze can be a Huge stinker--Lauren has done a fabulous job with him, and I was really proud of them this weekend! She did her first YR's my last year of running our program and he really made her work for their completion. I know she was disapointed at having a stop in SJ today, but as I said to her folks--she is now a legit 4 star rider, which is an accomplishment that many cannot claim. I don't expect this will be the last we see of Lauren!

                                      Serazim was a 1976 model, not 1978.

                                        I think he is so cool and I really love it when horses and riders like this rise so incredibly far.

                                        Anyone know the breeding of the sire and dam? I'm really curious about the Arabian lines.
