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!

  • Any "Wap Paloosas" Fans Out there

Just wondered are there many showing? what do you guys think of them ? And are they still " frowned upon" in the show ring?

          Years ago Mike Rowe helped me with a jumper. Loved his Waps horses. If you don't buy it, send me a pt with the info!
          It's 2016. Do you know where your old horse is?

            Julie Ely had one in her barn for years - I just can't remember his name right now.

            He did very well at A shows, and was a sweetheart to deal with.

              Julie Ely's app was Security Blanket, registered I think as as Wap's Con Game. Very nice horse!

              I've known quite a few of the Wap apps - some colored, some not. Overall they're very nice movers with good temperments. We have a young app cross mare (solid) in the barn that belongs to a 14 year old girl. She's very fancy & sweet and has made a super project horse for her owner.

                It's the appy breed line founded by a stallion named "Wap Spotted"

                There were "waps" before him but I think that's where the sport breeding kicked in, crossing to TBs for sportier babies. A friend of mine who posts on SHB sometimes had a really lovely plain bay from Wap lines, who is just gorgeous

                    Sorry dude, close but no. The foundation horse is Wap's Spot 2. Wap Spotted was sold in utero and has no connection with the original (and best) breeders of the Wappaloosas - JG Appaloosas, in PA. They stand 4 or 5 sons/grandsons of Wap's Spot 2 now and my GOD are they nice boys - fabulous sport horses and sweet sweet sweet on the ground.

                    http://www.jgappaloosas.com/ (the Wap Spotted clarification is at the bottom)

                    Here's my Wappaloosa - his mom is a Wap's Spot 2 daughter:

                    http://i26.tinypic.com/2w5oxzs.jpg

                    You can see my other appaloosas - a Southern World daughter and her son - in my signature. My mare was meant to be bred to Waps Rolls Royce, but she had a bad case of age catching up on her so that's up in the air now. My goodness it would have been an awesome cross, though.

                      Apps Rock! I do not have a Wap bred horse, but I have four Apps, with varying degrees of appaloosa-ness in appearance.

                      But to answer your question about prejudice....

                      My oldest one is seven, and his color is between a snowflake and a blanket type. Although I only do mostly local shows, he has been to a couple of A shows. Wherever he goes, he does well without ever any predjudice. People tell me all the time that he looks like a warmblood with color. He is a nice mover, and good enough jumper.

                      The only time he has not pinned in an u/s class was when the judge was a young professional A show rider at a local show. I have heard that the only risk of prejudice is from insecure judges, and for me, there was only that one time.

                      The App breeders know how to breed good movers. They follow the QH people for their HUS horses... lots of extension, loose shoulders, deep hocks, flat knees, pointed toes, and some float time.

                      There are some fabulous Apps showing H/J . Not so much in Texas, but that's what makes it fun!

                      Here's my first App:

                        I love the Wap line. The ones I have seen are such spectacular jumpers that they would offset any color prejudice.

                          Hubby's gelding is by Wap's Reflection. The horse is handsome, personable and athletic. He hunts and he trail rides. Probably could have shown.
                          He's very colorful and has that unfortunate Appy trait of short wispy tail and mane. But as hubby points out, don't have to worry about cockleburs or braiding!

                            I get a lot of teasing, but one of my favorites is that the Indians bred them that way so they did not have tail hairs to get pulled out and make them easier to track.

                                I don't have a Wap but I have an appy with something along the line of a gater head. That's what the breeder called it. He's super cute, and a complete gentleman! Love Apps now, he's my second. Hope to show him this year. Good luck!

                                  I have appaloosa sport type horses and they are not of the Wap line. The Wap spotted line is simply a foundation line of app blood. There are other very good examples of sport type appaloosas out there, although the Wap horses seem to be the best known.

                                    We have a large plain bay gelding(Wap Spot) that is an awesome mover with great rhythm and cadance to his gaits. A real sweetheart to deal with but just not the jumper we were hoping he would be! Willing to jump anything, very powerful, just doesn't pull his knees up. Guess we will try dressage with him.

                                      There is a Wap Appy at the barn at my daughter's trainer's barn - called Point Taken. He and his owner were CHSA points leaders last year until he injured himself in October. Oh they were so bummed!

                                      He healed quickly and will be back this year with his young owner. He's an awesome horse - formerly owned by a good friend of mine. He is very very smart - we swear that he counts his owns strides between jumps - you can see him self-correcting.
