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 haven't read everyone's response, o forgive me if I repeat something.....but my Corlando filly has a STELLAR jump, she's a 06 model, and I plan on free jumping her again this weekend as long as its not too slick from the rain..I'll post pics but here she is at Upperville. Doesn't have the hack winning trot, but fantastic canter and as I said you can't get a better jump!!

      I am absolutely in love with my Black Tie colt.....again more pics this weekend, but this is after he was body clipped and is a very odd color...however he is SUPER correct, and has stellar movement in a foal!!

        Neighland - I would love to hear more about your Black Tie colt. I am considering breeding my small TB mare to him in '09. I have heard he crosses well with TBs. I am looking for something that throws size and most of all, good movers.

          Slightly off the "huntery" path, my 3 year old boy is by Santa Cruz (Oldenburg), who normally breed dressage horses. Cruz is a big boy, tall with bone, and BOY can he move! VERY athletic horse. My Sam is out of a TB mare who was more huntery. He is absolutely gorgeous. Big but refined, beautiful head and neck with fantastic conformation. And friendly! The best part is though, even at a slow walk, he moves unbelievable. He doesn't even have to try. He is very athletic, no worries about him getting over a jump! I am attaching a link to recent photos at a local show, where I am showing him on the line. Some of the pictures make his neck look shorter, but it's actually REALLY long. He is the only grey in the class, so if you scroll through, you will see him (the photographer loved him, can't blame her!)...and we obviously won our class . I'd definitely buy another by Cruz, and his owner Victoria couldn't have been more lovely to deal with.


          Good luck!

            look into the Iron Spring Farm studs. lovely horses. great babies.

            and trust me, they WILL add size. there is an ISF baby at my farm ---he's probably only 3 or 4 by now, and, dear lord, he is HUUUUUUUUGE! (not like 17 hands huge, but when he's mature? he'll easily be 17 or more hands) but this is also because the mare was a biiiiig 16.3 wb as well. but i'm sure they'd add height onto any mare.

              You are correct! SPS Cleopatra has produced some very nice babies! Jamie is my best friend since high school & my retiree is at her farm so I am out there all the time. I will let her know you had nice things to say about "Claire".

              To the OP... Coppertop farm does have a young stallion out of SPS Cleopatra by Rio Grande. He is only 2 but is HUGE! (16.2 already) - not proven yet (expecting 5 foals next year), but great opportunity for your friend to maybe get in early on a future star!!

                    Or not. My trainer's Jupiter yearling is a plain bay who has about five white hairs on one nostril that make him look like he's got a booger in there and then two tiny spots of white on his back fetlocks. We were crossing our fingers for white and were sadly disappointed.

                    We're still expecting the jump to be fantastic, though. He's an athletic little sucker.

                      Hunter Stallion

                      We had a Cabalito colt this year out of our very plain,no white at all) bay mare. She's a Selle Francais model and only 16 hands.I wanted something to calm the SF blood and add the height.What we got was a stunning, large colt, liver chestnut with 4 white socks and a star strip and snip.Very Fancy!
                      We just weaned him and he is as quiet as they come so far!

                        [QUOTE=diva4ever;3505684]Chawley...are you sure you and I are talking about the same Ironman? QUOTE]

                        Yes, I'm sure its the same Ironman (top warmblood sire)???

                        My friend is an R judge that has done the circuit for years....Ironman is her favorite sire and she's had tremendous success with his offspring. That being said, it's possible it could be the mares, which I don't know that much about. I've only seen the foals. She will even tell you that all the IM's she's had have been very playful, curious, and slow to grow up. But once they do, they are worldbeaters.

                          [QUOTE=larosa90;3247791]Shine is smallish as CBoylen mentioned, maybe 16.0 or 16.1 hands and refined. He is stunning. He stands in Texas (thanks be to the one above because he was kicking butt here in VA in the AOs, so I am happy he is off tormenting another state in the show ring - I really do like him, just prefer to show against less shiny horses!)

                          Even though Shine isn't very tall, he is very big-boned and seems much much larger than he actually is. Body size can make them seem much bigger than just height. Just something to consider. My old barn was thinking of breeding a mare to him...sadly, she didn't take. I love Shine

                            You can take a look at my stallion. He is a young Hanoverian Stallion who has a perfect amateur brain and beautiful movement. If you want more information please PT me. I have his in hand videos from his show which he cleaned up.
