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!

  • Looking for used Beval Butet...Help!!

    I am looking for a used Beval Butet for my daughter, seat size 13 inches to 14.5 inches, short flap. Beval's used store had one out on trial but it was just purchased yesterday. Anyone have any suggestions or leads? They are next to impossible to find!

    In those sizes you aren't looking for a Butet, you are looking for the Beval Junior, an excellent choice for young riders. I've sent you a PM with an idea about where to find one.

    ETA: well, maybe you ARE looking for a Butet in mini-me sizes...Personally, I'd go with the Beval Jr!

        EDIT: My bad, this site has a Beval BB2 but it's actually 14.75". They do have a 14" Beval Junior, which is not the same thing. It's on trial already. You could call and ask to be put on the waiting list.

          Also going to through in that if you can afford it, Antares does young rider program where the riders get a new saddle each year they need it for a very very discounted price until they're 18. I can't remember what exactly the specs are, but apparently it's useful.

            Yes, you buy a custom saddle the first year, and then every year after that you get a new saddle for $500 (provided you get a new saddle every year and turn in the old one)

              Normally this poster knows her facts, but Butets do come in the sizes the OP is looking to buy. I sold one earlier this year - 14.5 inch Butet.

                I realize that Butets come in small sizes...probably because Beval Juniors keep flying out the door faster than Bevels can have them made!

                Take your pick, but the BvJr's are scarce as hen's teeth for a reason!

                  I think Devoucoux also has a young rider policy, and they make the very tiny almost toddler size saddles as well.

                    I think the smallest they make is 15 seat. Anyone seen smaller? My daughter is 4 1/2, and she needs to be in something in the 13-14.5 range, likely towards the lower end of that range, with a short (very short) flap....

                      Devoucoux is also a great saddle....we have a used one on trial right now that is a really good deal but it is 15.5...would be a much better fit if it were in the 13-14range....

                        honestly for that size child, you are really best served going with a Pessoa Pony or one of the Bevals for tiny ones...

                            Have several options thanks to the posters on this forum....the seat size is good in all of them, the flap is what the various owners are measuring now...I found more on this board with my post than in several days of Internet searching....

                              Its still an ongoing battle we have a wool flocked Frank Baines but it is not perfect yet, still working to adjust it. Oh and I sold our Antares, but bought it back lol... it doesn't fit our pony, but it fits everything else and the kid!

                              I've been curious to try the Butets on our pony because they run more narrow, but I can't find a 15 - 16 Butet in a short enough flap. Anyone know of any? she rides in a 0 or 1 flap Antares and Devoucoux.

                                  there is a 15 in short flap Antares at Farmhouse Tack. They run somewhat small... my daughter is a 15.5 in most saddles and fits her 16 Antares perfectly. Might be worth a try.

                                      Actually for that size child, anyone might be 'best' served (including the child) by going with any of the old 'antique' flat saddles that are hanging around many consignment shops and tossed up on the top racks of tack rooms. There are many wonderful riders among those who started without the 'help' of knee rolls.

                                      The best part is that their current prices for kid versions are between $2-300

                                      Still rides in a flat as a pancake saddle:
