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!

        No problem with the horse, just the observation that he is not a top hunter mover as the OP asked for in the post. A short stride paired with lots of knee action, over bent head/neck with a disconnected hind end do not equal 'great mover'. I am NOT saying he is a bad horse, I'm just saying he may not be appropriate for this particular thread.

        I'm sure he's very good at his job and just because a horse isn't sweeping and floaty for the hack does not mean he can't do other things well. He may excel in the jumpers that a hunter would not do well in.

          This guy, named Gala, was bred by Gray Fox Farm and is by our stallion, Gatsby. He has won multiple championships, with his AA owner (never trained or ridden by a pro at all, except lessons) and in 2010 he won the Utah H/J Assoc. year end championship for the AA division. She says he always wins the hacks.

            This is a horse I rode for a while...I believe he is in TN now and showed this year in the Baby Greens under the name Donato. Can't remember the name of the trainer he is with but if someone said it I would probably remember it.

              my boy

              this is my 4 year old, he is doing a jumper lesson here, but levels and goes quiet quite easily for the hunters. He has a beautiful trot which you really can't tell on this video, but I love his canter! I have only done one hack so far, he was 2nd in vermont out of some lovely movers http://www.holyyoutube.com/video/TlN...Bartano-Z.html

                        Thank you! The video barely does him justice! Nothing compares to Lennie
                        He also won the hack at the 2007 USEF Pony Finals.
                        It was such an honor to be able to have ridden such an amazing pony!

                          Water Music and the pony Lennie are simply superb movers, just spectacular. It's all about moving forward over the ground very very efficiently, and takes a lot of power from behind.

                          IMHO many warmbloods look too dressage-y - lots of spring and lift and flash at the expense of "daisy cutting" ground-covering efficiency.

                          Rhumba excluded, of course.

                              Here is a short video of two youngsters at liberty, 3/4 sisters, both very different types of movers, but both good..

                              Once they settle a bit you can notice that although the bay is a VERY dramatic mover at trot, the chestnut is very rhythmic and extremely balanced at canter.

                                    Thanks so much for all the nice comments! Don't want to seem too much of a bragger, but I think our Water Music is pretty special. He's currently being tried as a Junior Hunter- we'll see what happens!

                                    As for the warmblood thing, when we first started him as a 5 year old, he was not a good mover. At all. He came from a Dressage friend of mine, and he had to learn to go like a hunter to move like that. Different shoeing, a different way of travelling. It makes all the difference.

                                    Not to give away all our secrets, but not too many hunter people know how to get a horse to move up-hill, round across the back, completely stablilzed- with the nose poked out. Most people over-ride the face constantly and end up with a horse down-hill, overflexed and not stabilized. (Stablized = the Dressage idea of Self-Carriage).

                                      thank you so much double s. He is a lovely mover and jumper.He is being geared toward the jumper ring as my partner on him is a grand prix jumper rider, but I would like to get in some hunter derbies next year with him before we concentrate on jumpers. He will do the five year old jumpers down south this winter. I will get a video of him just flatting like a hunter and post it. He was also a bit sassy this day as he is a stallion and we shipped him over with a mare. This was filmed at hunterdon, I was told that they installed rubber mixed with I think sand and the color of the rubber leached into the sand. so all their rings are black which I think looks quite cool! Oh, and for the right price you can have him!!

                                        And may I ask who the rider is in the video? Very impressive.
