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!

    Please? Indulge me

    Bloodlines also, if you please.

    ETA: If you know names of any showing the circuit (and I mean a real fancy 3'6" horse type, either h/j/eq) that I can google for pictures, that'd be great too!

    He's not going to be a world beater, but is a good solid citizen who easily gets the strides. He has gotten some good ribbons in the baby greens, pre-childrens, and children's hunters, and gets better every time out (he's still fairly green and has been to 5 or 6 shows I think). I realize he's not going to be the winner at the biggest shows, but with a good round he can be competitive in our zone.

    We've shown him AQHA once, and he won both classes under both judges with rounds that would have likely gotten low ribbons at a USEF show.

      Nice horse. I like the way he's using his neck over that fence.

        Here is my guy.

        I loff to brag about him because he is too cool IMO. He does the Medals with Juniors around here, I do the 3'6" jumpers and next year he will also to the A/Os Hunters. Plus we show in him the Over Fences classes at the QH shows around here and Event at Training level with plans to move him up to Prelim either late fall or early spring.

        Jus Passed My Zipper by Passing It Along (full brother to Barpasser's Image..sire of Invitation Only) and out of a point earning daughter of Zippo's Smokey. My guy was suppose to be a pleasure horse but got wayyy to big, so I just started playing around and jumping him... and love him now.

        Here he is in one of the Medals with a junior rider from my barn..

        He is qualified for the World this year in the Open jumpers... just trying to find someone who will ride him for me as I am a weenie once they get over 3'6".

          This is a family friend's appendix. They bought him out of a field when he was 3. I rode him, then my friend (whose mom owns him) and now her little sister is riding him. He doesn't always get a piece of the hack, but man can he JUMP!

            This one isnt mine anymore, but I found and bought him to be a hunter, then sold him. Hes now doing 3' stuff. Hes placed at HITS, etc etc. Registered name is OQH To The Hunt by Coats N Tails.

            http://www.facebook.com/album.php?ai...9&l=d3139e3635

            Not the best pictures, and is doing the baby greens in the jumping pix. Hes got a video on youtube as well. First time shown over fences http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YLnhNQzqHNk


            Also someone has got to have an o/f picture of Billy Elliot. Cutest thing ever! Hes AQHA and wins like crazy in the hunters from 2'6-3'6 depending on whos riding him.

              I kind of feel like a party crasher since my pics are a little dated hailing from the 90s, but here's my guy (full QH, not appendix) in a GP in 1993:

              http://good-times.webshots.com/photo...94686761bCPxPV
              http://good-times.webshots.com/photo...94686761uiFhRt

              I got him when I was 12 and he was a barely broke 4 or 5 yo who caught my trainer's eye. Took us a few years to move up, but I ended up riding him in the high AOs and GPs for several years before selling him to go to college. He continued on in the AO Jumpers until he was 19 or 20 (so through maybe 2003). Had an obscenely long back and wasn't very big (barely 16h), but BOY could he jump!

              He was out of a QH mare named Gypsy's Surprise and by a Smooth Town son, Little Town (halter bred QHs on both sides, though late 70s/early 80s halter horses that were still "useful"). I've kept my eye out for Smooth Town babies ever since. Though part of what made him SO good was the fact that he was a raging A-hole who spent every minute of every day either plotting world domination or figuring out how to save my ass around a BIG course of jumps He had a somewhat rough start and I think that (along with a late gelding) contributed greatly to that attitude. I don't think I could ever replicate what he was.

                Well she isn't jumping yet but hopefully... HOPEFULLY... she will grow a LOT... so that I don't look like a giant on her...
                She has the movement to do great in the hunters.... so hopefully she has the knees to match!
                Here she is... at 22 months
                http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...1&id=616012494
                And at 26 1/2 months...
                http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...6&id=616012494
                Definitely growing a lot in the past couple of weeks
                But she is by far the sanest horse I've ever worked with... (well on the ground that is...not planning on breaking her for another year as she is from the Skippa W line and I've been told they grow late)....
                She was a present as a weanling... usually only ride thoroughbreds so this is a first for me...
                Keep pics and stories coming... please

                    My first horse was a little unassuming QH gelding... I got him when he was a teenager and I was 12. He had done rated shows and some AQHA and then did the local stuff with me. He was such a good fellow....

                      Here is ours. Registered as Smart Gay Trouble and shown as Double Trouble. He's by Grey Gay Bar out of Smart Senorita. I, however, know nothing about QH bloodlines so that means nothing to me.

                      He's 14.1, 7 and is making his showing debut in the baby greens and childrens ponies.

                          My favorite horse ever ridden was a QH that I did in the local medals and lower level jumpers. I'd love to find a clone of him someday

                            I had an awesome Appendix mare, we got her when she was 4 and I was probably 15 (she should now be 15-16) she was only 15.3hh but had scope like no other - I don't remember the dam's name (tb) but her sire was Paige Impressive and on her dam's side she went back to The Minstrel as her great-grandsire - Definite jumper bloodlines - I think at the moment she is doing the hunters still, but jumpers is where her heart is - I did not want to sell her, but I was 18 and living in Brooklyn, NY with my mom doing all care for her. My mom eventually got tired of doing the labor (my mom's had horses all of her life, she just needed a break) and decided to sell her - She went to a great girl in NJ who successfully showed her in the Bit 'O Straw series and she was recently sold to another girl who I am trying to keep track of, but am having difficulty with. I'm 24 now and want to be able to get her back when her career is over or almost over - she was the first horse I bought and trained myself - So without further ado, here is Katy reg 'Blazing The Pages' now being shown under 'Little Miss Chatterbox' :





                            Ignore my EQ in that last one - it took me a while to be able to stay with her HUGE jump, that jump I think was MAX 18" haha it was schooling jumpers when she was just learning -

                                    Emma (QH name Bugs Dixie Flyer, USEF name Miss Behavin') and I show her in lower divisions, as I am just now getting ready to move up to 3'. She is awesome - totally solid citizen, will pack a little kid around crossrails and then teach me some new things. I am totally unfamiliar with bloodlines, so I am no help there. I do know she's got Bugs Alive in 75 in her background, but that is ALL I know. I'd love to find out more, if anyone knows.

                                    Here is Emma with a little person earlier this month. This little girl had a bad experience at a show a year ago, so this was her first show in a very long time.

                                        my hunter superstar, full blooded papered qh. He's only 15.1 but he was showing 3ft+ easy and schooled 4ft no problem, huge stride and he's a daisy cutter, straight knees. Squares up so cute over the jumps. He was a 3grand auction find that beats the 100+grand wbs. People are always shocked when they ask and I tell them he's full qh, was a ranch horse actually.
                                        "Fifty years from now when you're looking back at your life don't you want to be able to say you had the guts to get back on that horse?"
