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!

  • Price Qoutes on Grand Prix jumpers

    I need to find out prices of Grand Prix Jumpers. Specifically, the replacement cost of a Han, with pure German lines with hardly any TB in the pedigree and not in the first generation. 17.2 hand or bigger. That can jump 7 foot easily and trot 5 foot. Also has to be able to canter to 7 foot spreads on oxers. A horse with show experience and wins at the A'2 and A'3 horse shows in Modified or Open Jumper, and Mini Prixs. Able to win a speed class as well as regular class. Ready to go Grand Prix and scope and ability for the Olympics. I am not interested in quotes on green horses or one I have to make myself. Sired by a stallion as well known and respected as Graf Goetz.

    Thanks everyone this will help a lot. And I do intend to buy a horse as described above. I have not shown in 3 years so I am out of the loop on current prices.

      I know of one horse recently imported from Germany who was doing Intl level GP and placing in the top 10 out of 70 or more horses regularly. Don't know his bloodlines. Price was in the $250,000.00 vicinity.

        The market is soft, but the outstanding horses still sell. International winners will be in the mid-six digits and go up. It pretty much comes down to how much you want to pay.

          100k upwards to infinity. Skies the limit. Olympic calibre start at a million and go up from there.

            Get ready to shell out $1 mil PLUS for a known GP horse. Why on earth would you need a horse to jump 7' (trot 5'???)? Plan on doing the puissance? BTW, unlikely that you will find a horse that can win both the speeds and the GPs.

              anyone who says they made a small fortune in the horse business probably started with a large fortune.

                She isn't trying to BUY a horse with those characteristics. She is trying to establish tthe VALUE of such a horse for insurance purposes.

                    HUH.. that's funny because I'm pretty sure her last line does say that she is looking to buy a horse with those characteristics... Which I think means she wants a horse that can trot 5'???

                      I assume that, once she gets the insurance settlement, she will be in the market for a similar, though not identical, horse.

                      And trotting a 4 foot fence was one of Bert deNemethy's "standard" exercises. So trotting a 5' fence isn't really that big a deal.

                        I'm assuming your horse was a gelding, not a stallion? The going price for one with Olympic potential beyond a great grand prix horse with a current fabulous show record seems to be around the million mark. Didn't Mr. Blue go for something like 1.2M a few years back? I have no idea what they are insured for, however.

                          right .... I think Chrissy was just wondering why someone would make that a requirement when asking about a quote for a horse. It is a bit strange for a requirement of a GP horse IMO...Just like you said, most horses can trot 4ft. so why does it have to jump 5ft. at the trot in order for you to consider it?? Im just curious....

                          edited just to add, if a horse can jump 7 ft. "easily" it can probably also trot a 5ft. jump, no?

                            Janet, your a gem.
                            I used the DeNemthy to train all my horses, along with great coaches. I am glad you recognized that. I went to the DeNemthy system clinic that lasted 3 days eons ago in Leesburg, Virginia and I taped the entire session. I had a video company then. Of course the ex husband has all the videos

                            pt me anytime you want to chat about the great old methods and still correct methods of training.

                              I too am puzzled by the 'requirements', even if its only for insurance purposes. Is an Olympic calibre horse that can trot 4 ft 6 somehow less valuable than the same horse if he can trot a 5 footer?

                                well, I mean if a horse can jump 7 ft. easily, I personally couldn't give a dam* if he doesn't like to trot fences, or for some reason can't trot 5ft. Although I'm pretty certain he would be well trained enough in the DeNemethy method to trot 5ft. IF he is that talented...

                                    The term "replacement cost" is a giveaway.

                                        Sounds to me as though you need a trainer / agent if your intent is to do International level. They could probably head you in the right direction to buy your Olympic mount.

                                        IMHO, if I hadn't shown in 3 years I'm not sure I would want a horse that could jump 7'...you just may "chip" and he will get himself out of it..but could be a bit rough on you! If I were you.... with your ambitions I would buy a lot of STICK'em and make sure that insurance policy is paid up.

                                        By the way..I do have a horse that will trot a 5' fence but will most likely only jump 6'...make me an offer. What would you pay for that?

                                        Oh..after seeing your other posts, my horse is 11...a 16 year old jumper has limited time left in the GP competition arena which would most likely decrease its value.
