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!

    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.
    This, plus the age of the horse. I certainly don't expect a yearling to have the engagement asked of a 3+ year old.

    • netg,

      My TB mare is actually purpose bred for steeplechasing. They are called National Hunt horses. Until I moved here I hadn't realised both types were bred. They are typically a bigger more robust type of TB. Stella is a very good mover for a TB and built uphill. She has a fabulous front, nice hind leg, but needs improvement behind. So am mindful of that when breeding. Her daughter (on the vid) is like her mother in movement butore powerful.

      I love NH TB mares! You can really find some good ones for breeding sport horses.

      • I couldn't find a newer video including trot but to me this mare has an ideal trot and canter for the hunter ring http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r9guPbGoZy8

          • Dancing foal: He's very impressive but I really hate those dressage horses who you can't hardly tell the trot from the passage.

              Did you bump up a 2-year-old thread just to post that? She's a decent mover; canter is better than her trot, but I wouldn't call her great.

              • I actually like the trot of the mare, but I don't like the canter. It looks disjointed to me. Wonder if she's young?

                  Hind end seems to trail at both gaits. Just thought it was an interesting horse to use as an example in an old thread.

                  Of course, your Water Music and RosMel's Millenium have been the best two examples post.

                  • So does anyone know what ever became of Crown Point? His video still pops up when people post examples of good movers.

                    Comment


                    • I have seen that mare in person and you are correct something is a little funny with the hind end at both gaits. Very weird video to post in this thread..


                      I believe Crown Point is clocking around in the childrens

                        Just guessing, but perhaps this was posted because the horse is for sale? No better advertising than to put it on a "show me a good mover" thread.

                        ETA I don't intend to be cynical, it's just that, to my eye, in this video the horse doesn't stand out as an exceptional mover.

                            Yeah, I saw this thread and posted my favorite in 2010 of Rumba!!! This thread has been brought back from the dead. And of course I watched the video AGAIN....

                            Agree with Tha Rigde's response.

                                Edited because I went back to look and this isn't the thread where I brought said pony up as an example. He truly was an amazing mover.

                                  Nope. You might have also, but the one I referred to was posted by the owner herself, while pony was still around (and probably for sale or lease, hence the posting!). I also wondered if that's how this got picked up after two years of inactivity.

                                      And how funny that the horse world and this BB turn out to be so small sometimes.

                                        Crown Point ridden by Scott Stewart. This horse is a freak of a mover. His trot is beautiful and a little better than his canter, IMO. He also jumps well. I don't think he's ever done much competition wise though, someone correct me if I'm wrong.
                                        Holy cow! That is an amazing trot.

                                          That's weird. When I was editing my post there were no other posts. Oh well. As mentioned in my edited post, it must've been another thread where I posted a link to him as a good mover.
