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!

  • Videos of new mare! Critique wanted! Update post#15 with latest video!

    This year I started a young jumper prospect called Quantas. This is her pedigree:
    http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/adc+quantas+lv+z

    I have posted about her here before and showed her first show:
    http://www.chronicleforums.com/Forum...d.php?t=206531

    Here are her four latest pics from the last show of the Argentine Young Jumper Championships:

    Don't have time to watch the videos right now, but your photos are nice. Seems as if you're hitting her in the mouth pretty hard despite your release.

      Bahhhhhahhahaaa. Humbug. I whole heartedly disagree.

      Nice horse. Nice smooth trips. Nice rider.

      Good luck with this one, she looks like a nice straightforward ride.

        Thanks and congrats on your paint warmblood. I saw him in your recent post and he is eyecandy!!! Nice jumping form too!
        I've always wanted a colorful warmblood, but not much of that here in Argentina. I still have hopes that one day I will find a diamond in the rough in some field with a gaucho riding him and complaining about how tall his horse is and his canter is too long...come to momma!

          Thanks for the output. I will see if I can catch what you see in the videos. If you get a chance to see them, post your opinions.

            Agree that she is not hitting the mare in the mouth

            And agree with nice horse/nice rider. Straightforward?....well definately forward

            I think she is coming along great.....and when she learns to be a little more efficient she will be fabulous. It looks like she is jumping the bejesus out of a couple of those and isn't quite sure where all her parts are going as long as they don't touch the jump It also looks like she wants to get a bit quick. Nice tactful ride on a greenie that looks like she wants to be a big overachiever. Good job on her

              In 2nd and 4th photos the jaw looks clenched, thats usually a sign that you're pulling on the mouth. In the last photo you can see the bit pulled hard enough to the left that its sticking out the side of the horse's mouth. That's why I mentioned it, not trying to be scroogish :dunno:

                I love her! She looks like she just needs more time/experience jumping, which is completely understandable as a 4 year old!

                  He looks like a very capable, honest mare with tons of potential for the jumpers.

                  I would make only one suggestion, and please don't take it as a negative, as I think you are a very capable riders as well with lots of potential.

                  Now if she were my horse I would try to ride her a little less like a jumper right now. By that I mean focus on her balance, pace and impulsion exclusively, don't worry so much about finding the spot let her figure it a little more on her own. Check less, get her balanced, find the right pace and impulsion for the course, and let her hunt around the course with as little intervention from you as possible.

                  Now I say this because clearly the mare has absolutely no problem with the courses she is jumping now, but what I do see is that she is very occupied listening to what you are asking her and in the one video she got a little confused about what you wanted coming off the corner, her ears were bouncing from channel to channel trying to lock in on what you wanted, and in front of the fence I do not see her completely locked in she is constantly looking for an answer from you.

                  Her being engaged in the conversation is a great thing, but it has to be a two way street, and as the courses get more challenging to her she will need to think for herself, and you will have to trust her as well.

                  This going to do a couple things it is going to increase her confidence, and it is going to help her to learn about impulsion on her own.

                  She is a nice mare and you are doinga great job with her, keep up the good work!

                    I think she's very adorable. Super careful. She does seem to want to be quick but listens enough to you to come back to you. I think that as she gets some mileage she's going to make an even nicer mount and move up well through the levels!

                      I agree. She is a whirlwind type, likes speed over pace. I have to tone her anxiety down (not that its a bad anxiety, but the curious "what's next?" type). I was guessing that with more shows on her, the questioning will tone down and my faith will grow to let her pace through. The last video is her 5th show out. The photos are from her 6th show (I am uploading the video). She is in a Young Jumper Championship where you have to get 8 clears out of 11 shows to reach the finals (we have 6 so far...and four more shows to go). Sometimes one gets so focused on getting a clear to reach the finals that you try to do everything... . I must move out of her way at times and let her do her job. You are absolutely right.
                      I have been working on what you said for the past month and as soon as I upload the last show, I will PM it to you so you can give me your opinion.
                      Thanks.

                          Agreed 100%... definitely the kind of response I'd want posting on here for advice
                          Very well said and explained!!!

                          I like the mare a lot! She is green (obviously) but definitely shows some wonderful talent- she's got a lot of heart also... and the rider is doing a great job with the horse!

                            ditto. Very informative post.

                            I think the mare is lovely! She is coming along nicely! She is quite scopey.
