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!

  • Lets play a TB pedigree game

    As we all know there are so many TB's that have found homes off the track, and as the WB people keep eyes on the best stallions, I've found it fun watching the TB racing stallions and trying to figure out which ones produce great hunter prospects.
    My boy is by I Am The Game...who is deceased now but I know of 5 of his babies that are either out competing in the zones or will be soon.
    His mom is by Sit Ivor. My guess is he's a pretty awesome hunter sire/ grandsire.
    Maestro was by Smokin Joe.
    I also love another BB'ers Canter TB's style. She named him American Idol and he's by St Jovite.

    Any of you have favorite racing TB stallion sires that have crossed into other horse sports?

    I know theres a sports horse board, but theres alot of people here that have had x TB's that aren't necessarily known to be out of "Sport Stallions".

          I no longer own him, but I had a great TB gelding who was a very nice hunter type. He is by Fighting Fit out of a mare by Barrera.
          Here is the gelding's pedigree.
          And here is a picture of the gelding when I owned him.

          I also had a Northern Dancer granddaughter who was a great jumper type. She was very athletic and turned faster than anything I've ever been on (got me in trouble a few times she turned so fast).

              Very cute horse Hunt-jump and a good pedigree. He looks like he was fun...how was the brain?

              Jumper Bean, what do you do with your kid?

              I know a lot Mr Prospector babies are out in the hunters too. The ones I know personally are wonderful once they've overcome the challenging brain thing.

                  My mare's (now deceased ) grandsire was Sir Ivor! She also had Bold Ruler 4 gen back (yeah I know... far ), Somethingroyal, Northern Dancer

                  Had 2 geldings who's sire was Mr. Prospector

                  Had one horse from a sale who's name turned out to be Unbridled Express... guess who his daddy was! (And he was gorgeous to say the least) Unfortunately he broke down so bad he was euthanized the week we got him (he just laid down all the time and walked on 3 legs when he did walk... was just cut before the auction... was drugged enough to gimp on three legs... he was VERY sick)

                  Mr. Prospector's offspring make good hunters

                    Yes, I loved him and really miss him. He was very quite in general, but had some quirks about getting to the rings and he tended to get a bit up tight and stressed. He just wasn't real brave outside the ring. Once he was in the ring and working though he was very good and not easily flustered. He has a nice show record for the little we did when I had him(ribbons at WEF and HITS Ocala including a hack win at HITS). Surprisingly he never got hot even as he gained weight and got into shape (he was Very thin when I got him). I am really interested in his breeding. I didn't realize how nice (at least in my opinion) his breeding was until recently. Apparently some of the Fighting Fits are now showing up as sport horses and I see a bit of Full Pocket in the sport horses as well as the Crozier. I would be interested to see if anyone knows anything about the Barrera line as I know nothing about that part of his breeding.

                    BTW, what is the American Idol's registered name? I love the pictures that I have seen of that horse.

                        hunt-jump: he is VERY handsome, love those knees!

                        Full Pocket is in a lot of hunters! My sister has a full pocket broodmare that has turned out some brilliant hunter babies!

                        http://www.pedigreequery.com/index.p...=Standard&x2=n <--- that's my mare's pedigree

                          I just love Private Account. I can't say enough about this stallion. Every get of his I've seen looks JUST like him and is nice, nice, NICE! He seems to up the ante on anything the mare brings to the table.

                          I also like Buckpasser for hunters. And any Alydar is worth checking out too

                            Simke, I know alot of those horses. Stage Door Johnny has a few nice ones that I've seen.

                            Unbridled had a local filly that was amazing to look but, what a nut. She did herself before she was 4.

                            I had a Dancers Melody geld, and the funny thing about him was that you couldn't clip him without elephant tranqulizer, and otherss told me the same thing about DM babies they knew.

                            Isn't it funny how they are?

                            I love Sir Ivor too. He must of been amazing.

                            Heaintnosaint was American Idols name. He has a full sister foaled in 98 that I'm looking for named Jovites Halo. If anyone sees her, let me know. Or any ST Jovite babies.

                                  Yes, but I don't know anything about him. He has shown up in about 3rd or 4th generation (he was a 1965 Stallion) in a couple of horses that I have seen in sale ads. These are not proven sport horses though, so I'm wondering if anyone is finding this line in sport horses.

                                    Inmotion- our Unbridled gelding (Really a colt since he was obviously cut jsut before the sale) was a nut. When he would stand up and walk on his three legs he was bonkers. But man he was gorgeous... blood bay 3 white socks (tall white socks) and a perfect blaze, and he was about 16.2 or 16.3. But he kinda had that look in his eyes, you know?

                                        You pegged that mare to a tee Sunshine, she was loco. So beautiful, tall, elegant, deep bay with lotsa chrome.....but the brain was fried from birth. She ended up crippling herself in her stall as a 3 or 4 yr old. She had that eye thing too...not the good eye thing. The owners bred her dam back to Unbridled but I've never seen or heard anything except it is a colt and I should of seen or heard something by now.

                                        I love the name TV Commercial, but have never seen him anywhere. Looks like a job for Del Mar! I love that site!
