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!

  • anyone have an anglo-arab?

    Does anyone here have an anglo arab? If so, could you post pics? No facebook pics please as i don't have an account. Also, what sort of abilities does the horse have? I am asking because my horse is an anglo arab and has a LOT of talent for his size. He's only 15.1 but could jump the moon. I know a lot of people put anglo arab's down because of the two breeds that make them up (arab and TB) but my guy is surprisingly handsome! Sorry, I don't have pics.

      Ive got one in my broodmare band... one of the smartest horses I have ever known.. too smart, actually. A 'people-first' horse. Her filly by a Trakehner stallion is extremely athletic and intelligent.. cant wait to get her started as I think she could do just about anything that was asked of her. Photos are on my site, sorry, cant post them here.

        I have one, but have never called him an anglo Arab...just always a tb/Arab. He's a super cute guy....huge personality. Never calmed down in the hunter ring quite enough for me though. But now he is my semi retired best friend. I trust him and we have a super bond. I've never had an understanding with a horse like this before. Im on my phone, but I'll try to add pictures soon!

            Mine has a bit of Paint in the mix as well. Looks Thoroughbred-y until he gets galloping/jumping and starts to flag the tail. :-p 15.1 hands and maybe a bit, and he is a narrow little guy, but moves/feels like a bigger horse. (I realize that everyone says this. About him, it is true.)

            Very, very, very smart and nosy. Supervises everyone and everything around him. Alarmingly good at manipulating anything he can get his lips on. Has a high opinion of himself, but luckily, so do I, and he has a super work ethic, so it works out. Was a highly reactive (and highly athletic) spook in his younger/greener days and that's definitely still in there, but mileage/training/rider confidence worked wonders and he now mostly uses his powers for good instead of evil -- routinely hacks out bareback on the buckle, pinch-hits occasionally as a lesson horse for a good kid, etc.

            Currently eventing at Training and is quite competitive on a day when yours truly has her act together. We are thinking he'll go Prelim but top out there (which is fine with me). Really seems to enjoy problem-solving on XC, in particular.

            I loff him. He would not be everyone's cup of tea, but has a pretty good fan club, and I've never heard anyone say an unkind word about the cross. (Maybe they're just polite enough to wait until I'm out of earshot?)

              Oh I rode a lovely one for quite awhile when I was a teenager. He was stunning and had done the rated circuit, but started stopping at fences regularly. So he was relegated to a quieter life with a friend of mine. She never rode him much, which means I got to ride him a lot.

              He never lost the stop and a lot of people couldn't jump him. He'd stop at every damn fence. In fact, his barn name was Bam Bam. But he never once stopped for me. I'm not sure why he and I got along, but we did, and I never had a problem with him. I think I was just young and dumb, and stayed out of his way and let him do his job without telling him how to do it.

              He was a big chestnut, lovely mover. More TB in type aside from the dishy face. Ah I adored that horse. He's one of the few that I think about and get a little teary over!

              Ok enough reminiscing, sorry about that! But I think AngloArabs are really cool horses, though they are probably not for everyone. Smart, sensitive, and high energy.

                  I have one in my barn now and have had others in the paST. All were great movers, and good jumpers, the whole package! Athletic and smart . They won in hand, under saddle and over fences. Probably would do well in open shows but we stick mostly to Breed shows and local hunter shows where they do well. I have friends that show their Anglos at open shows and win a lot. check out the North American Anglo Arabian Horse Association for photos. I can't post on here.

                    I have a quarter horse/arab. He was an "accident" that I inherited. The funny thing about him, he actually won 4th place at Devon out of 32. =)

                            Sounds like you're describing my horse to a T!! He has HUGE movement. I am a small rider but wanted a big horse (16.0h or taller) when I went horse shopping. Of course, I am a sucker for big smooth movement as well. My guy is small but has bigggg movement. Also, he was a 3 day event horse before I bought him. Now he's my hunter. He's got endless energy but never out of control and will sleep ANYWHERE.

                              I always wanted one. Never came across one; they're pretty scarce in this country, although much more plentiful in England, which has been doing horses for quite a while, tend to use them more than we do, and generally have pretty good judgement, horse-wise.

                                    My AA is a 12 year old that I bought at 7...unbroken. She is a 16.2 +/- gray whose mother was a 17 HH racing Thoroughbred. Don't really know much about her sire. She had grown up on a farm with 24/7 turnout in a mixed band of geldings and mares with stallions on the property. She absolutely knew she was a horse!

                                    I brought her to a boarding facility with an indoor where she was put under saddle, taught lunging and introduced to jumping, all of which she did well. Still, I was reluctant to trail ride her, either in a group or alone. Imagine my surprise when, after a move to a rural property with miles of out-the-back door-trails, she has turned into an awesome leader on trail as well as a confident solo horse! We are going to start training for endurance once the weather lets up a bit.

                                    Compared to my half draft mare, she is a firecracker in the best possible way. Fortunately for me, the firecracker has a brain and uses it! Gotta love that mix...

                                      I leased an Anglo-Arab two summer ago. He turned out to be my true heart horse. He and I really clicked. Sadly, the lease did not end well on the human side. He's up for sale now, and it kills me that I can't afford the purchase price.

                                      I don't think I will ever be able to replace that "void" that he left.

                                      He sure had a lot of try in him too. I think I jumped 2'6'' on him in the end. I was super nervous going that high, but he took care of everything. I swear he would even shift his weight to make sure I stayed balance.

                                      He was also a super dressage horse. He looked a lot more thoroughbred than arab even though he was half and half. Sigh, I miss him.
