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!

    Last one was aweful compared to the first two, I think the bay will get alittle quick at the jump and the first looked alittle quieter, so I would pick the first one based on temperment.

          I can't watch these at work, but at what level do you want to "win?" Local? National? Pony Finals? Where are you located geographically?

            I am looking to win (or close to winning) at pony finals/anywhere.. I am in Zone 4- Georgia
            But I do compete all over the east coast (such as WEF, devon, upperville, etc.)

              I'll take door #2.
              I wouldn't turn down door #1 (and as someone else said, that would be my right one for some kids).
              Door #3 doesn't interest me.

                  It's a better video but the pony is still a no for me. At least as a pony hunter prospect.

                    #1 - for the same reasons as Summit Springs...AND i don't like the editing on #2 - it makes me wonder what they cut out...

                      I didn't watch the whole video (actually didn't get past the trot because full grown men on sale ponies seems to disturb me) but #1 is more typey. While I enjoy the movement on pony 2, I don't really think it is suitable for the Pony Hunter division. Not saying he's not a good mover, but think his type opens him up to a lot of subjectivity, and some judges aren't going to like it. Too athletic.

                        #2. I like his trot alot. On a sidenote: I really wanted to yell at the rider to stop staring at himself in the mirror every time he went by.

                          Just something to consider....ponies of any size being schooled by large adults..esp. over jumps is not a good recipe for longevity in soundness nor in rideability for a child. Obviously this is just my opinion, but based on experience.

                            My thought was 'why are they being ridden by a giant?'

                            Also, general question, why is their chin tucked to their chest?

                              I have to agree with Quicksilverponies, why not get a kid on the ponies? I could barely watch when they started jumping, the rider was too distracting.

                              #1 looks like more of an all round fancy horse, that could ribbon on the flat as well as over fences
                              #2 freak of a mover, but like dags said it could go either in its favor or work against it, depends on who is judging
                              #3 looks like an all round packer type, not that fancy, just safe and fun, at least compared to the others

                              Therefore if I had to go off video I would go for number one.

                                  They are all very nice (esp #1) but I don't think they are winning at pony finals nice. JMO

                                    For sure #1 or #2 but as others have said, you may want to look some more. Both of those ponies look like they still need a fair amount of work before being able to go and win in the show ring and also look like they could need to be worked down a fair amount first, especially for a child.
                                    I know you are looking for a green large, but you may want to look at regular division larges too as there are many for sale right now with owners who are willing to drop the price as they are not moving.

                                      Pony # 1 is probably good enough to win at any level HOWEVER

                                      1) the rider is slick- very slick. Highly doubt the pony would look like this video with a kid, and I'm guessing the changes especially from right to left are more tricky than they appear. Also looks like it has jumped those jumps many, many times before video was taken and still takes a peek down every once in a while

                                      2) Does the pony have a card? I would make sure it has a permanent card or have a vet double check measurement

                                      3) Pony is obviously prepared for the video, and there is nothing wrong with that, but take it under advisement

                                        I'm pretty much in agreement with the folks here: NO on the 3rd pony, the bay is a FREAK of nature mover...actually quite like him *but* more interesting as an FEI dressage pony possibly, the 1st pony is the best of the 3 for what you said you're looking for. Same "warning" as above: This guy is a good sales rider and is getting the absolute best out of these ponies, don't expect a kid could do it...maybe but just go in with your eyes open. BTW, OP...do you know the breeding on the 2nd one? I looked on the website and didn't see it, just curious because he's such an athlete...he's my kind of pony.
