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!

    I know Prelude has ALWAYS been a hit in the Hunter world but I'm just curious if any of his babies are still selling to H/J ppl like hot-cakes!

              I think it is safe to say that Prelude has never been a hit in the hunter world (although he seems to be a nice horse) because the hunter world doesn't favor Trakheners.

              The fact that Abdullah was a Trak, was a surprise to most people, but other than him (and either Schoenfeld/felder), I can't think of any Trak stallions that have been used enough in the hunter world tobecome known here.

              Sorry to burst your bubble, but I don't see him ever becoming a big deal. Good try at getting some free advertising, though!

                What about http://www.broadhillrunfarm.com/hennessey.cfm I thought he was rather popular for a period of time ?

                And his son Zarr http://www.wariotofarminc.com/zarr.html

                and wasn't there another Zealous maybe ?

                  Hennessy and his son Zarr, are the only Trak stallions I've heard people using for hunters. Have never heard of Prelude (or Mozart). From the videos on the site, would definitely not use him to produce a hunter jump.

                        Not a stallion I would ever consider for a hunter? His jumping form is certainly not one to emulate.

                          Is anyone else wondering why an owner in Connecticut would send their stallion to Texas and Jeff White of all places to be marketed? I know Jeff and he's a really nice guy and really great with pony kids and adult ammy's, but he isn't exactly someone I would pick to ride/advertise my stallion. Why Texas? And in Texas would I choose.....Matt Cyphert? Yes. Even Mike McCormick. But that's just kind of....odd - to me anyways.

                            As much as I love that Drowning Pool song, I am not sure if it is appropriate to market a stallion with.

                                Exactly. I'm not trying to be a total snob, but that entire stallion promo was hard to watch. It looked like the kind of video a 10 year old girl makes for her favorite pony- minus the song choice.
                                I've never heard of this stallion either- but I've only met one trak I've ever liked so I could be in the minority on that....

                                  Are you sure this isn't the case? If you dig around through some of her posts, some of them are almost too ridiculous to be true. In one, she was asking whether the mare or stallion determined the sex of the offspring (um, middle school biology, anybody?) and in another she divulged a previous cocaine habit, and in yet another one she divulged an addiction to a controlled substance.

                                    actually I was thinking the horse jumped really well for a trakehner.

                                        Wow, this is a total shock to me!

                                        A couple years ago I saw threads all over the H/J board of Prelude being a really popular hunter stallion! In fact, at one point a friend of mine asked on one of the forums (not sure which one) what hunter breeding stallion to breed to and a ton of people responded w/ Prelude.

                                        Oh, and yes, I am NOT the owner of stallion so Rio, chill the hell out and pull whatever is up your ass out and QUICK! Oh, and what cocaine habit? If you read the post you will see that I said I tried coke once at a horse show party and HATED IT, gave me a panic attack! lol!

                                        Plus, the reason I ask is that I know his babies have pretty much ALL turned out to be winners in the big circuit hunter or jumper ring! Plus, Prelude's American trakehner association (who probably hold the most picky, critical, hard-to pass inspections of ALL the warmblood breeds, at least according to a holsteiner/hanoverian breeder! ) had AMAZING scores. I saw his inspection scores (as well as the mare I'm purchasing and breeding to) and they were both incredible! The trakehner association a very much purists and a horse has to be damn near perfect to be allowed in to the books! I will also remind everyone that the stallion tests are absolutely brutal and VERY physically demanding. Most can't hack it! So, if theres a couple photos/video of him hanging his knees its probably cuz he was so exhausted~!!

                                        And whats with all the "no fans of trakehners" that responded to this?! Its a complete and utter myth that trakehners are hot!
