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!

      Here's a picture of my 1.2 m-1.35 jumper, but has turned into my adult hunter, poor guy!


      This was taken in Belgium before he became my hunter
      But he's as bold as he can be and takes great care of me at 3 foot. We know he can do more but he's mine all mine at 3 foot!

        I'll take one of Nikki tomorrow!

        This is the only conformation shot I have of her (she's 3 in this picture and just off the track - she has a much more developed topline and booty now): http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-..._3919833_n.jpg

              This is my OTTB who currently does the 1.40m with plenty of scope and power to go higher:


              This is my warmblood mare who probably shouldn't be anywhere near as competitive at 1.30m as she is, let alone able to do the 1.40m (though she hasn't had to do anything that big since I moved my boy up):


              And this is my teeny tiny (15.1h) Dutch mare who easily has the scope and stride to do the High Juniors with her new owner. We routinely jumped her around 1.30m courses at home:

                I hesitate to post this, because right now we've gone back to basics and are learning dressagey things, but my jumper is as scopey as heck and built for it, I think. He's an OTTB, and before I decided to fill in some of our flatwork holes, we were schooling courses from 3'6" to 4'3". Now we trot. A lot.

                He had just had a bath here, but it's a good side shot. All of our faux jumper dressage stuff has given him one hell of a butt and a huge topline, but I have no recent confo pictures. http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a2...e/CIMG0269.jpg

                  Currently doing 1.20m, has competed up to 1.30m (possibly higher before he was imported...not sure!) He's 15 now Not what I'd call textbook, but he works!

                  Last summer:

                  This past winter...not the best position but you get the picture:

                    Dang it, tidy rabbit - I now want to buy all three horses from your barn!!!!

                    Not what I needed right now - they are SOOOOOOO gorgeous!


                    • #11
                      Julia (the second horse) is currently showing in the 1.20-1.30 (4'-4'3) 6 y/o classes. Catalina (the horse at the bottom) was schooling 1.40m+ (4'6-4'9) before being bred.

                      I'm sad I don't have any confirmation pics of my "older" (aka 10-12 y/o) jumpers but in my mind they are pretty cute


                      • #12
                        I have a number 4' plus horses, limited confo' pictures.

                        This is one of my mares, moved up to GP's last fall.


                        Though I have to say that if you are looking for any similarities in conformation that make a 4' horse, you may find some, but the reality is that good jumpers have different types of conformation, some good, some bad, and some in between.

                          A lot of good looking horsie bootay in this thread.

                          PNW, that first horse you have a pic of wouldn't happen to have Knight in his backgroud, would he?

                            This is my best jumper currently. Not the best shot, but you get the point haha. He's currently actually only showing 3'6" because 'I' need more consistent show ring experience. He has been schooling 4' as if it doesn't exist and has free jumped 5'3....so I have complete confidence he'll continue to raise the bar.

                            He's off the track. He is 10 years old now and raced til he was 6, had a minor minor right front bow, took a year off and went into training. He's 16.2 and built pretty beefy. His g'pa on the dam's side is Halo

                              Schooling 3'9-4'3 at home. Have cleared 4'6 undersaddle and 5ft free jumping. No $ to show, though.

                                He was a dressage horse but loves to jump. Jumps 4 ft + easily. So this is the direction we are working him right now.

                                One common factor I have seen in the 4ft jumpers posted here (not only are they all beautiful) but, the chest and shoulders. Very large and the breast bone is more forward than most horses....

                                    Bah, no conformation photos of my late AO jumper, he was perfect! Feeble attempt to show off horse, trotting: http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-a...11273_2817.jpg
                                    Free jumped to 5'6", brought me up to 1.30m in competition. Would have gone farther, but he suddenly passed away at a very young age.

                                    This is Creggan before the injury:
                                    Free jumped up to 5'0", competed mostly with my sister at the 1.10s, but would go higher with trainer.

                                    My chiropractor and vet have said he is VERY well put together for a jumper, darn soft tissues don't want to cooperate.

                                        Forestergirl99 ...... If you are interested in doing some research you can look up the Dam and Sire of some of the horses we have bred that are on the circuit and see their conformation since most of the pictures we have on our website are action pictures that I have purchased or have been sent by the present owners. There are some that I am sure have jumped 4 ft. but not on a regular show jumping course. The following horses I am sure of......
                                        Centurion B ( Paloma G X Rebel IZ ) was 3rd in the 25,000 GP in Chicago last week and 2nd in the jumping derby.
                                        Cielo B( Montana X Simsalabim ) won a modified GP last week in SC and Baccarat B (Paloma G X Rebel IZ )was 7th.
                                        Dante B ( Tara B X Simsalabim ) won the Washington Classic last week in Chicago and his rider was Champion Adult rider at the show.
                                        Wiebe B ( Montana X Rebel IZ ) was division champion of jr/Am Owner division at Gulfport in 2010
                                        All Star B ( Montana X Branco ) used to jump 4 ft but I have lost track of him.
                                        Concorde B ( Treasure B X Olympic Concorde )won many classes at 4 ft when he was ridden by Aaron Vale
                                        Deja Blue B ( Song Sung Blue B X Simsalabim ) probably was jumped 4 ft before he retired to breeding.
                                        I put the mares names first as you can look them up on our web site and they mostly have conformation pictures.
                                        This may take some research and you may have to go to some other sites as well
                                        but it also may help to draw some conclusions.
