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!

    This guy (Rare By Design) is APHA....he is by our decesased APHA/TB stallion out of a Paint mare
    (Pic at 2 from 2007.....I am sure his owner will be out showing him again thi summer...)
    My now deceased Paint mare (she was a Paint/TB cross) has a pinto son by Special Memories named Night Mover that has shown well in the AA hunters for a while. I have a granddaughter of that mare though she will be doing dressage. She is a weenie to the jumps. She CAN jump fine abillity wise...she is just spooky about new jumps she has not seen before.

                    yup his mommy was a TB!!! he just turned 12 the other day. He wasnt started until he was four until a rather successful ameauture bought him hoping he would be another one of her A/O hunters and while he is extremely nice and athletic i dont think he could compete like that.....but his attitude is just the funniest so she kept him around sort of as a pet/hacking around the farm horse and i got him last year and he just sort of hung out with light riding. This year we have a trainer sort of free leasing him so he is in work!!! he should get in the baby greens soon...his old owner had done a year or two with him in the baby greens.......works for me though cuase he has the been there done that attitude but his legs arent shot and he stills enjoys his job!!!!!!

                    I never liked pintos and my dad (who knows only a little about horses) didnt want me to go look at my guy at all as he thought pintos looked "western".....but now that ive had a pinto and especailly and art deco descendent i never want anything else. Everyone i talk to says the Art Deco line has a distinctive attitude which most would get sick of but i enjoy it lol...............

                    hope you get yourself a little pinto some day! they are the best!!!!

                    I think we need to start a pinto click!

                      This was one that I leased for a little bit. http://s60.photobucket.com/albums/h36/scrbear11/Domino/

                      He was by Davignport out of a mare who was by Art Deco. He was a so-so mover, but had a vet cute jump.

                      Here's a video of him, http://youtube.com/watch?v=RRtSWWLO3-o

                        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.
                        No need to apologize - at least to me...I wasn't offended at all! I know when we were breeding racing quarters in the 80s, the QH "hunters" were all like 15hs tall and stocky bulky bulldoggy types who wouldn't outrun a one legged chicken. lol Our race breds were 16.2 - 16.3h conformation hunter types and they (QH people) had NO clue what to do with us. lol

                        Well...fast forward 20 years and wow oh wow has the QH hunter changed. I was stunned seeing them for the first time in 20ish years! No longer 14h X14h wide. lol I'm seeing 17h+ - incredible movers - daisy cutter, loft, suspension. It blew my mind. As I'd tell friends who were looking for Ammi or kids horses and couldn't find a WB in their price range - I'd say "Check out the QHs HUS horses" They immediately thought of the one's I used to see in the 70s-80s and when I sent them to the top HUS studs websites they too were blown away.

                        I'd ALWAYS wanted a paint - but again, they were 14h X14h lol, so when I found my BOLD black & white tobi, who was 16.2 and huge, I bought him on the spot. I figured I'd get lots of crap from "traditionalists" about his color, but the thing that really surprised me was - EVERY trainer - including top "A" & GP trainers who saw him asked me to sell him to them. They all asked if he was Dutch. lol Nope..good old American Quarter horse and Paint. lol

                        I never get offended, but DO make sure to tell people about how far the QH and Paints have come. They are truly incredible horses now! They have a calm level headedness of the WB, but with a dash of TB fire so they have that extra sparkle and charisma. From now on I'll only buy QHs or Paints...I sure as HECK do NOT miss my 20 minutes of lunging before I throw a leg over. lol It's sooooo nice to put a halter on, throw a saddle on and hop on and ride off.

                        Sorry about the novel - I just wanted to make sure *I* didn't offend anyone. And FWTW, IMO & E, if you put in a good go, the GOOD judges could care less about the horses color! If anything, it will make a good go stand out more and get you remembered.

                            I saw one at the NYS Breeders Show, Syracuse, past weekend. It was by Indian Artifacts and was a 17 Hand chestnut and white Tobiano. Big - sweepy - big step - great jumper. Michele Kreimeyer was riding it for a Canadian lady, I think it is for sale.

                              Robert Beck had a bunch that did very well locally...

                              Jigsaw & Kaliedoscope come to mind...

                              Plus, there's been a bunch of pinto ponies...

                              My Thriller just won Zone II Hunter Finals for the childrens...

                              Otterride PowWow won alot...

                              and there's another one named Madison Avenue that goes from the eq ring, to the pony hunters, to the jumpers.

                                The paint/appy/palomino/buckskin/etc prejudice does not apply to the pony ring for some reason. Colored ponies are cuuuuuuute.

                                    I just bought a Swedish WB/Pinto cross prospect who is cute as a button! He is mostly chestnut with white legs and a mostly white tail. He moves great and is showing signs of jumping terrific! I don't think any H/J judge will be able to resist him! :-D

                                      I have an APHA/TB (reg APHA) gelding who is 16.3 hands with the longest legs I have ever seen. People always ask "oh, he must be an Art Deco baby." Nope, I reply. He a pure Texas Warmblood (snicker). I then get the strangest looks, as if to say, what is that?

                                      I'd post a picture but am fairly computer illiterate.

                                          We, Cross Creek Sport Horses, specifically breed painted TB, show hunters for the NON-APHA shows. Our horses are bred to be fantastic hunter movers and jumpers that just happen to be overo/sabino paints. They have been declared outstanding movers by some of the best judges in the country, too. I've been told that a really nice hunter will not be penalized if he happens to have a lot of "bling"!! We have a three year old gelding now that is being targeted to the hunter folks. As stated by others, there is still a preconception that "paint" hunters are just stock horses in English tack...WRONG!!! I'm starting to examine the possibility of the Pinto hunters as an option. The Pinto World Show is held in Tulsa, just 50 miles from here and we have several friends showing there who are planning a visit to us while they are in the area. "Get Spotted"!!!
