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!

  • I might kick myself for asking this - and if it comes across as even slightly trollish plz tell me to MMOB - but I noticed that on "Humble's" page his sire is listed but dam in listed as "unknown."

    Is that possible for a pony like him? Or is it just not listed but in fact probably actually known?

      Quite common, even in derby and GP horses. A lot of times the big name stallion (in this case Blue Rain) is considered the more important part, while the mare may just be a generic broodmare with no registered name. Also, that info is straight from USEF so whoever registered him might just have not known the mare's name off the top of their head, but knew he was by Blue Rain.

      • Every time I see that video of Crown Point I let out an audible whimper at how good a mover he is. He's so pretty I could cry.

                Not too shabby. Though the first pics were with a dressage rider, he's been almost exclusively bred for hunter babies.

                • My apologies, I didn't realize how far back I had gone in threads! I just thought it was a neat topic. To my knowledge the mare is not for sale as the kid is taking her to Junior Hunter Finals. I personally like how she moves. I do think this was shortly after she was imported and she was imported right after having a foal, so green and out of shape.

                      • I realize that dressage horses move much differently than hunters/jumpers but to me those dressage trots just seem--er--artificially overdone--way too much suspension and animation. Impressive, but not really a natural way of moving.

                        JMHO--I'm open to constructive comments but no flames please.

                        Crown Point = NICE!

                            I'm a dressage rider. To me, the great-moving hunters you guys post look like they're barely moving. I often think, "Okay, but I'd love to see his movement when he's actually USING himself." They always look too slow, unengaged, and often on the forehand.

                            Not saying they ARE. Just saying that what we're accustomed to seeing often looks more "correct" than what we're unaccustomed to seeing, even when the other is perfectly correct.

                              Absolutely! Correct is different depending on discipline, and once your eye is adjusted to almost exclusively one discipline, the others just look weird.

                              My filly is going to be my dressage horse and you can see why here, but when she relaxes and stretches down/out while trotting she has what I think of as a hunter trot to die for! This gives you an idea, at least. I need to get some current video of her, but her pen has too many trees in it to get a decent shot.

                              • Kadenz and zipperfoot, you are both probably right, and both probably recognizing fads in the other's discipline. A true toe-flipping hunter will not be shuffling along on the forehand, and a truly correct dressage horse will not have his right knee at his nose while his left hind toe hovers an inch off the ground. Not saying they aren't out there, but neither are traditionally correct.

                                • What would you consider my guy. He is in dressage training and here I'm riding him long and bring him up a bit at times but he is just coming back into work from 4 months off so just trying to build muscles slowly. I will show him dressage but just wondering, I've been out of the hunter ring a while and my daughter will start riding again soon. You think he could hold his own locally?

                                  • Rabicon, he's very cute when he gets going. He'd need less knee action to be all that competitive under saddle but he'll get bonus points for the nice steady-eddy frame, quality to his gait, and over all appealing presence. Those factors alone usually earn plenty of good ribbons locally

                                    ETA, speaking for the Hunter ring.

                                    • Thanks. Well she wants to jump and I'm not much for her going cross country so I thought hunters maybe the thing. Lol. I'm a chicken mom lol. He is very nice and actually this is his 5th ride I believe after 4 months off and as you can hear very windy so he'd be a good boy I think for her. But he will still be my dressage horse lol
