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!

        Your guy is what I have been wanting, but I end up with hunters! He looks like a very fun ride who loves his job and is unchallenged at that height. Looks like he could easily do bigger. Does he happen to be an Irish Draught by any chance?

          Loved it. The first thing that came to mind was that he's a fun ride. Second was that you and he present a fluid picture. He does get a little quick at times, but not so much that you need to worry about it, and you don't worry (or appear to, anyway ). I love that you stay in the middle of the saddle over the fences, no flinging yourself up over the neck. Very nicely done.

              Bless you for actually having your stirrups an appropriate length! Maybe it's a local trend near me but everyone is riding with 135* legs swinging all over the place.

                He is SO cute!!! I love his way of going and how he backs himself off the jump. Looks really fun to ride!!! Is he a large pony? Just a guess from your screen name. Anyways, you two look like a great match!

                  Love you and your horse! Great job, you seem to make a great team also. And yes you can tell he loves his job. The only thing I'd say is he needs a little more release, just a bit. But I have a feeling he can get a little strong so that's why you hold he a little more. Lobe your position overall. Best I've seen in a long time

                    Gorgeous horse! I must say, I would've given a little bit more of a release! Heels were perfect, everything else was perfect.

                          Thank you for posting you both are lovely to watch. He is quick but still very nice and that quickness does not change his form as it often does for other horses.

                          Enjoy your guy !

                            I remember seeing some of your other vids with this guy and I still really, really like him. Looks like a fun horse you loves his job (the ears pricked the whole time is super cute) and you ride him well!

                              This absolutely drives me crazy watching the lower jumper levels. It's rampant in the Ch/AA and Low Jr/AO classes. Not the legs-swinging-around part, but lots of juniors riding over big jumps with super long stirrups. I'm not sure why this is such a trend, but I notice it almost exclusively on the kids who are also doing the medal/eq classes and then the people who train with those trainers prepping lots of kids for the medal/eq.

                              I don't think the OP is that far off, but I do think that she would have an easier time with even shorter stirrups than she has here.

                              But as everyone else has said....super cute horse!

                                  Awww thanks everyone! he's a perch x TB


                                  I usually do the high adults, but he was on stall rest and i was on college-rest (aka neither of us were getting worked for three weeks and after day one of horseshow i couldnt walk)

                                  first time i had taken such a long break from riding and i would like to disagree with everyone that says this isnt a sport! you use muscles you dont use for anything else and there is no way to keep them in shape!


                                  Also - question, I do the hunter derbies on him in a stronger bit and he's not fast, just a little quick to the jumps. Any idea why he wouldn't place well? its pretty obvious he loves his jobs, but we rarely score over a 60
                                  i guess our competition isnt the easiest to beat haha


                                  thanks again everyone! Yall just made my day

                                      Coming from jumper-land--your horse is adorable and lightning quick his with his front end. Looks honest as the day is long and like a BLAST to ride

                                      I have never in my life shown in a hunter derby so my opinion is potentially worthless, but he's not terribly orthodox; he looks to have a tendency to rabbit-jump behind (tucks his legs under him) and doesn't crack his back hunter-style. Also he doesn't move like a hunter and I honest-to-God did a double take bc he reminds me SO much of a mare where I ride who I suspect is the same cross and goes the exact same way (and is equally as wonderful as I suspect yours is!)

                                      He makes a heck of a jumper/eq horse though!

                                        Thank you! Yeah he jumps flatter than most hunters :/

                                        Oh well I still love him!!
