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!

  • Where to find Appaloosa (or Appy Cross) for jumping

    Looking for another Appy/Appy/cross jumper. I've been searching and they're hard to find. I see a lot of websites out there, but plenty of them are outdated. Any ideas? I'm not looking for a made horse, but something reasonable I can bring along.

    There was one on facebook under Michigan Hunter Jumpers for sale a while back. She was cute. It was posted the end of November so not sure if she is still available. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=1&theater

      Thanks, Derby Lyn. I'm right around the corner from RHF. I'll check that out, too. Not ready for a baby, but for future reference!

        We had one that we sold a few years ago that was pretty awesome. We bought him as a yearling and had him started by our WP trainer and then I took over with jumping... He was so cool!

          Love appies!

          I noticed that "Team CEO Eventing" has had some Wap-appaloosas for sale

          (I have no affilation)

          I do have my own jumping App! I found her on Dreamhorse (as a weanling though!). I would periodically search online classifieds for decedents of Chocklate Confetti (which my girl is) or JG's Wap's

            You want a Wap baby! The saying goes that an App that wants to jump is unbeatable, but an App that doesn't want to jump, you shouldn't try. JG's Wap babies seem to really want to. I know Virginia Hood passed away several years ago and I'm not sure what ended up happening with their stock, but Wap Spot is a name to look for.

              Do you want an Appaloosa or just spots? Sadly, it seems the majority of the appies have been turned into spotted (or non-spotted) QH copies. Big bodied, heavy on the forehand, etc. Not what you would want for a jumper of any substance.

              I did a search on Dream Horse and it's kind of pathetic. You'd be looking at a lot of re-training as most of them have been AQHA'd out and look like they are 90% dead and can't pick their nose up off the ground.

              If you just want spots, look to Knabstruppers. You might find some of the appropriate kind of athleticism you are looking for amoung them.

                Well, the reason I am looking for an Ap is because I currently have an Appy/Trakehner cross that I love. http://i740.photobucket.com/albums/x...p/DSCF0152.jpg, http://i740.photobucket.com/albums/x...ump/photo6.jpg. He's just a super horse to work with. So I guess I'm looking for his attitude and athleticism. Spots are a bonus, but I'm not against a solid Ap if it's the right horse.

                I will check the bloodlines mentioned, and I'll definitely check the Knabstruppers as well. They're just hard to find online.

                Thanks, all.

                  I almost bought an Appaloosa last year. I had watched him jump around our shows all summer and he was a really cute jumper with a terrific heart. Unfortunately, he wasn't quite the right fit for my style of riding, so I passed on him.

                  He was by Broadway Boogie-Woogie. I know nothing else about the sire and I haven't seen any others by him, but he certainly looks the part.

                    At one time we had 4 appy's in our barn that were all granddaughters or grandsons of Colida (all from the same breeder). Boy, could they jump! My old mare (one of the granddaughter's) was a foxhunter extroidenairre and could outrun & outstay all of the TB's in the hunt field! I still drive by the breeder's farm, and see all of his aged stock just standing around his fields. He was a western/trail-rider and never appreciated how athletic his horses were. We should've bought every horse he had about 20 years ago.

                          If you don't pick up one of Team CEO's Wap babies I might have to figure something out... really like them both!

                          My first horse was an appy cross and he taught me more than any other horse or any trainer could have. Would not hesitate to own another, especially with TB blood.

                                FleckenAwesome has a very nice youngster. He's got Wap lines, and is out of an ISH mare. He is turning into something quite special. I think she got him from Rugby Hill (I think). You should PM her for ideas on where to look. She purposely sought out a baby (bought him at 10 days old), but may know of places to look.

                                        This breeding, although quite old, is AMAZING.....

                                        I had an Apache Cat K colt and he lived until he was 40 years old. He would jump the moon. If you research the racing appys you can probably find something amazing too.
