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!

  • Canadian Sporthorse Registry?

    Would a mare with Canadian Sport Horse papers be eligible for approval as breeding stock in any registries in the U.S.? (Or would it depend on her pedigree as much as the registration?)

    I don't know much about the registry at all.

    I have a Canadian Sport Horse mare who is in the Main Mare Book for Oldenburg NA and Oldenburg GOV. This was all done before I got her. I believe that as long as a mare is papered (Jockey Club, Canadian Sport Horse, etc), she can be presented to various warmblood registries for approval and entry into their studbook.
    Animals are not disposable!!!

      If the mare has a pedigree that qualifies her for MMB of the registry you are looking at, well, she will be eligible for it. Canadian sport horse papers doesnt matter. I have a mare wich is Weinstein x Graphit x Gotthard. She is of 100% hanoverian bloodlines, both parents hanoverian registered, imported and fully approved in Germany. Breeders back then tought it was easier to register with CSH, and so they did. Now, she is a broodmare, and because of her pedigree, despite being registered with CSH, she has been approved with GOV and entered into their main marebook and she would be eligible to be approved with the Hanoverian Verband if she was to be presented at an inspection and score enough high (as a non-hanoverian mare.. funny isnt it).

      Hope my example helps.

        To echo Jen Rose, yes, a mare with Canadian Sport Horse papers can be inspected/approved ISR/OldNA.
        There is a difference though between being an CSHA approved mare and one that is registered Canadian Sport Horse. (They don't call it registered anymore though).

          So if she is being sold as "Canadian Sporthorse with papers" . . . I guess if I'm not breeding FOR the Canadian Sporthorse Assn., I don't really have reason to care if she is approved by that registery . . . I just need to make sure her pedigree is such that she is approvable on paper (and, of course, make sure I think she is also approvable in person).

          Does that sound right?

          I don't know enough about the Canadian Assn. to know what to make of the papers!

            Make sure and get them to send you a copy of the "papers" before you do anything. The mare i sold to the States, for example, had been presented to and approved by the CSHA, but she was unregistered. The "papers" she received were a certificate of studbook entry, NOT registration papers. For a horse to have actual CSHA registration papers, both of its parents need to have been inspected and approved.

            You can always contact the CSHA if you want to know if the horse is actually registered or not.

            And as Spike said, whether the horse could be entered into the books of a WB registry depends on pedigree. A Canadian Sport Horse could be a full Warmblood, or a Belgian/TB. You have to do your research. Basically all the papers mean is that the parents were both inspected and approved as breeding stock (i.e. deemed of sufficient quality to be entered into the breeding books) and that the breeder then made the effort of getting the foal registered.

              If she is registered CSHA, you should be able to find her in this database.

                Ah . . . I couldn't find her.

                If they gave me a number that starts: CSHA #HB

                Does that mean she is approved for breeding but not registered? I've contacted the organization. I'm trying to figure out what her dam's side is (her sire is easy).

                I've contacted the CSHA, too. Thanks for all the help.

                  Ah . . . never mind. I was looking at TB pedigrees . . . there's a QH back there a couple generations - that answered my question.

                    HB= Half Bred Papers. No breeding approvals, just a certificate of pedigree.

                      Ah, good to know - I'll have a better idea what I'm looking at, next time, now.
