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!

                    These girls are 3/4 sisters, both by our stallion Beste Gold , out of half sisters, the chestnut's mother is by Feiner Stern out of an Abundance ( sire of Ruxton) daughter. The darker filly's dam is by Davignport from the Abundance mare. This mare is more typey, however both dams did well as youngsters in the Hunter in hand.

                    The dark filly is more typical of the giant moving WB and is of the type that many talk about "dumbing down the gaits a bit".

                    For as much as you can see with two silly fillies loose in a ring: I think both are lovely hunter types, demonstrating the strength of breeding choices, while also showing differences of infusing different blood.... although the chestnut is a much more "traditional" mover.

                    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.

                    • How many of you retract your good mover label if the hind end is trailing way out behind? It matters to me that a horse reaches underneath itself with the rear legs.

                        • to me that is a matter of engagement. If a horse engages and still moves like a washing machine, he ain't a good mover. If he is a good mover, yes I look for engagement, but just because he isn't doing it in that ride or on that video doesn't mean he can't do it. But engaged, not engaged, the washing machine is still a washing machine.

                          But if I was judging a class and a good moving came along, nicely engaged and tracking up... well no duh, I'd like him more than that good mover who was not, for whatever reason. But it is a hunter hack, not really the same degree or type of engagement is being asked for as in dressage, just a good ground covering efficient gait.
                          Your crazy is showing. You might want to tuck that back in.

                          • I tried the hunter breeding classes with THIS one....

                            As you can imagine,they did NOT like him for hunters..... can't imagine why not? LOL. I still laugh thinking about him being in the HB classes.

                            A fabulous mover for dressage no doubt, but hunters.... NO.

                              This. I have friends that look at nothing but what is happening with the hind end. I know people that look at nothing but the front end. I prefer a great front end with an engaged hind end, a soft, swinging back, and a nose poke. A horse might be daisy cutter-like with a nice hind end, but if it is tense through its back and neck, the whole picture is ruined...IMO.

                                  It depends - I won't claim a horse is a poor mover if it's not engaged at all with poor riding. I expect to see some natural engagement if I'm going to call a horse a fantastic mover, though, for whatever discipline. Certainly I want to see more for a dressage prospect, but if a horse naturally trails out behind with no indication of proper use of the back end, I'm not going to call it a good mover regardless.

                                  • I am adding my mare that I bred. She's 4 years of age and she's a Dutch/TB cross. She is bred for jumpers. Now video is not great as you will see but there is some close up stuff of her if you are patient. It's not long so don't worry. This was her first day out anywhere, first time ever in and indoor. She just went to do some warmup stuff to get her used to a show atmosphere. This video is of her going into the big ring for a look around. My trainer is riding her.

                                      If you ever want to send your mare overseas to a clueless amateur to do dressage with, I'm perfectly willing to take her.

                                        Somebody else said the same thing to me a few weeks ago. Why not try your mare in dressage and I thought, I just don't think she's a good enough mover for dressage and she has a TB mom. Plus, I am really clueless in that department!

                                          I think most good jumpers can be dressage horses, too - it's the impulsion and use of the back end, freedom of the shoulder plus uphill tendency which tend to make them good for dressage. Plus, most of the top dressage horses out there have a LOT more TB in them than you realize! (I have my eye on a TB mare with bloodlines I love to possibly purchase and breed half TB/warmblood babies for dressage...)
