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 ride a Pinto Hunter (Paint xTB) We are in our 4th year of showing (he's 6) and he's come up through the ranks - local show circuit where english & western compete together, local hunter circuit for 2 years and this year we are up on the rated circuit and holding our own. As someone already said there are still alot of judges that like to see the traditional colored horses and do feel colored breeds have a place in the hunter world. The other problem is a horse with alot of white stands out in that sea of bays and chestnuts. If we screw up we stick out like a sore thumb (sort of like bare hands). If we screw up in one class, guarentee the judge remembers us not from our number but from our color. My guy is cute, a decent mover, and a cute jumper but when we bring our game to shows our game has to be well above everyone elses just because we do stick out and it's harder to blend in.
            The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit, and fire. ~Sharon Ralls Lemon

              I was watching my sister compete in a horse show in Seattle a few weekends ago and there were THREE black/dk bay and white pinto's competing in the older adult amateurs. I thought I was seeing multiples like 'didn't we see this horse go already', but no there were actually three of them. They all looked very much like warmbloods too, not QH-ey at all.

                Thanks! I love them too! It's going to be hard to part with them when the time comes.

                I bought them from a small breeding operation near Columbus. I had been looking all over the country and not really finding what I wanted and then BAM someone from COTH pointed me to her website and there was Aero who just happened to be 2 hours away. Then 4 months later we bought Adagio as a weanling. There is a 3rd little devil just born a couple weeks ago, he looks like Aero but with a blaze. I have yet to add him to my collection of brothers.

                  We have a barn full and they all win at the shows....no discrimination.....we also breed colored TB's.....i.e. thorobreds that have a latent gene allowing for color.....they are registered as TB and paints....so you get the color with a TB mind and stride......they do very well

                  enjoy your new colored horse

                    I have a grey and white pinto Hessen who can jump the moon when sound. however, he is currently "laid up" with a bad right fore hoof.

                      (I am not talking about the quarter horse type paints that may not be able to make the distances, but the pinto warmbloods that are just as capable as competing as the other, not-so-colorful horses). Just wondering...do judges prefer bays???[/quote]

                      You might want to rethink your opinion on "quarter horse" type paints... They aren't bulldog cow ponies anymore! A paint hunter under saddle horse needs to be 17hs to be competetive and moves as well or better than most of our HUS horses. I have over 40 years on the AHSA/USEF circuit and trust me...the Paint hunters of today rival the regular TB & WB hunters! They have nice long strides and make thedistances very easily. My Paint was 16.2 and worse an 86 blanket. He made the strides with ease and was so tight in front and scopy - MUCH better than my TB A/O hunter. Check out the top paint show barns...you'll find MUCH nicer horses that the pinto registry horses. Pinto takes ANYthing as long as it has color - Paint needs to be TB or Qh and not only do they have better lines but are better movers all around.

                        Thank you for the advice. I apologize if I offended anyone and should have known better than to make that generalization about the Paint/QH vs. the Pinto warmbloods. My ex-horse was a 16.1 hand Paint/QH and could make the distances, so I guess that it just depends on the individual horse and I should not have stereotyped an entire breed.

                          My horse is technically half pinto- he is by Domino. However, he is dark bay with no white at all. So there might be more pinto hunters out there, they might not all have color!

                              Do NOT worry about this! I did the very same thing. A lot of people do not know the difference between a Pinto and a Paint. I embarassed myself many times before I was 'corrected'.

                                    Thanks Kirsten. My pinto is by Kodachrome who is by Art Deco. I show him in the Adult Amateurs. When we're good, we're up there with the bays and chestnuts.

                                        I have a State of the Art baby!!!!! though hes not a baby lol. He wasnt given much of a chance when he was younger but hes going to go in the baby green stuff this year and Im hoping to make him into a 3 foot horse. He doesnt have a ton of white. Hes mostly black with four high socks and a completely white right shoulder and a stripe and his tail bone is half white. I dont think there is a lot of discrimination against the pintos as long as they have the stride and the jump then you are good!!! And if you lay down a great trip i think a lot of judges will place you higher cause they really remember and i think a lot of people think its nice when this minority does well!!! granted there are always a some judges who think the pintos arent traditional but who cares! I love my pinto more than anything and dont care if a few judges think he is untraditional!!!

                                        p.s.....my guy is half TB....i can post pics if people want
