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!

  • Suggestions for hunter sire

    A good friend has asked me to help him find a stallion (either WB or QH) for his TB mare in the hopes of getting a foal that he can do the A circuit with in a few years (Adult Amateur or AOs). The mare is a 10+ mover and jumper, but she's very petite standing only 15.2. I'd like to find a stallion known for very quiet off spring that would put a little size on her. (He'd ideally like something around 16.2 to 16.3). Confirmation wise - she's very correct and sound with an exceptionally pretty head and neck.

    If you were going to breed a mare like this, who would you consider?

    Try the Sporthorse breeding folks over on that forum.

    Most of us don't breed and tend to look at the performance instead of the names.

    Sure friend wants to do this and wait 5 years to do Adults and closer to 6 to 7 years from conception for that 3'6" A/O. with no guarantees? Probably the best buyers market for finished horses ever right now and likely that's not going to change. Won't be good for her if baby does not work out and she needs to sell it...won't be good for baby either.
    When opportunity knocks it's wearing overalls and looks like work.

        His get are all beautiful with great minds, but he doesn't throw height. Don't expect him to add on your mare.

            Thanks, I'll check it out over there. I agree buying in this market is less risky compared to breeding, but money isn't the driving factor and he really wants a foal for her. If it doesn't work out, it's not a big deal. He'll either find it a good home or keep it anyway.

              I love Popeye K and he was one that the owner mentioned he'd be interested in. Do his get have quiet dispositions?

                Well if she's that small... and it's her first... maybe u want to try doing a pony stallion first and get the small one out of the way????


                If you're looking for a great AA/AO horse... I'd recommend going with All The Gold... I've known quite a few mares bred to him and all have had lovely hunters.

                  Thanks, I'll add him to the list.

                  We've actually talked about it. My trainer stands a nice Welsh stallion, who I think she'd cross nice with. Definitely an option.

                    All the Gold is in (or near) Ohio and you can go look. Also there are alot of his out there and many at the shows by him that don't advertise the bloodline.

                    But...well....do your research. And either side is only 50% of the equation. Whatever, see if you cannot track down mares similar to your friends bred to anything you are considering. See what came out of the match.

                    I like PopeyeK but he is relatively new at stud...don't recall him as being big either. Cboylen might know more about the size and what he can throw in that department out of a smaller mare.

                    Have seen some good ones by Alla C'zar and that one has been around, lots of Ammy mounts by him.

                    Unless friend wants to go the appendix route with the QH folks, I'd go WB here. More options for resale and a better chance of getting an honest to gosh Hunter.

                      Thanks for the info....I'll talk to him about going to visit All the Gold since he's close by. I agree also about going the WB route. I'm not super familiar with WB lines, as we've always bred TBs for the hunter ring, but my trainer is pretty up too speed.

                      I'm particularly attached to this mare, as I've shown her for him the past two years. It'll be fun seeing her become a mom.

                        Kory Merrill in SC has two lovely stallions whose get seem to be lovely movers/jumpers and have saintly attitudes. One stallion is a TB called Sneak Preview and the other is a QH by Invitation Only called Extended Invitation. The QH is not that tall, but he seems to be throwing pretty big foals.

                                  If youa re thinking QH here si one that I am planning to breed an appendix QH mare I ahve, who is a daughter of Our Diplomat. He is "Regular paperd" so can be bred to appendix and TB mares and still register offspring (if that matters to you). He is 17.2 and has an awesome jump, there are video links on their website, I do not know this horse, jsut ran across him on dreamhorse looking for an afforedable stallion for my mare:

                                    Ick...would not recommend breeding to anything having to do with Indian Artifacts. Hate him. Babies are bad hocked and have no ass.

                                    Go straight to the source and try Artful Move or Art I Sweet.

                                      Almost all of the All the Golds I know are small.
                                      Popeye himself is really big, 16.3-17h, and seems taller even when you're standing next to him. Most of his offspring I'm familiar with fall nicely into the 16.1-16.2ish range.
                                      What about Shine?
                                      Shine is tiny.

                                        Completely false. Every one of his children are taller than he is.
