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!

  • Top Pony Hunter Stallions

    Does anyone have suggestions about small pony Hunter stallions? They need to have produced winning foals recently. Thank you!

    Small as in Section A? Or small pony stallion as in crossbred?

    Section A full welsh stallions - Daventry Farm has a very proven stallion in Penrhyn Sporting Chance. The real deal.

      JLA Sir William has produced a lot of winning hunter ponies.

      I'm a big fan of him. I owned a 3 y/o stallion by him, easiest pony to break ever. He is now gelded and does field hunting - dead dead quiet and a 10+ jump.

              Section A's are tough, tough, tough to find a good one. Farnley Farm has a nice one that is relatively new, and a lovely mover. No proven performance ponies that I know of yet.

                We had great good fortune using *Telynau Falcon on our small TB mare to produce a crossbred pony hunter who is being brought along for the show ring by his new owner in Ohio. He can be seen at http://sakurahillfarm.com/horses.php?HOID=38, Sakura Hill Sensei. I believe that Anne Hedge of Whitehedge Farm in TX has had considerable luck with his progeny in the show ring.

                  Champlain Rainmaker. owned by Nancy Burnett stands in Va. He is not a sec A, however. He is 12.2, passes on a fabulous disposition and is a gorgeous pony. My large pony, Centerfield, is by Max and was the easiest pony ever to start. Centerfield was 2010 USEF Grand Pony HOTY and he is only coming 8 years old.

                    I'm breeding my 15.1hh mare, so I need something that will ensure I get a pony rather than a small horse. Would a small Section B do the trick? It's incredibly difficult to find any nice Section As...

                      That is exactly the size of our TB mare used with Sec. A *Telynau Falcon who I think is 11.1 or 2 hh. We chose him because of his fluid movement. Even George Morris has commented on how nice the resulting now 3 yr. old is.

                        Our 12.2 1/4 HH Section B stallion has been successfully producing large pony hunter prospects out of 15.1 - 16 HH mares.

                        Our Section A stallion Penrhyn Sporting Chance has also successfully produced pony hunters out of larger mares.

                        Another small pony, who hasn't been mentioned yet, and who has been successful at producing pony hunters is Blue Who, owned by Sugarbrook Ponies.

                            It's actually www.ponyhunterstallion.com or www.penrhynsportingchance.com ....but that's OK! Whatever gets people to the website. Thanks so much for mentioning him.

                            I'm sure we'd all love to hear more about the mare...as that will likely determine which stallion will suit the mare best!

                              I have 2 very nice moving, well bred, small Sec. B stallions that I invite you to take a look at - both are on my website along with video. Rondo has several outstanding moving babies on the ground now. Another great small pony stallion to look at is definitely Blue Who - www.sugarbrook.com. He is a great mover and super sweet!

                                15.1 is a great size to go with Section B stallions. I understand you want a full welsh, so your options are endless!

                                  Max Max Max. (Champlain Rainmaker) I was at his breeder's house again today, and saw so many nice offspring.
                                  Or how about Belshazzar?

                                    I think you have a lot more options than you might think. In addition to the A's, there are many, many Section B stallions that are on the smaller side (12.3ish). Check out the recent VPBA stallion service auction page to see lots of them in one place, all with sizes listed. www.vpba.com That is in no way a complete listing but a good place to see a bunch in one place and compare. See also www.welshpony.org stallion listings for more.
                                    It would be great to hear what you might like to try to improve upon in your mare, then maybe it would be a little easier to steer you in the right direction. I would suggest not only looking on the USEF site, but if you see a stallion you like or a pony in the ring that you like, see if you can find out the breeding and google to see more offspring or contact the SO directly for examples. Good luck to you!

                                        You totally can't go wrong with Farnely Belshazzar. The best standing pony stallion in the country I honestly think.

                                        Here is one of the MANY we have raised.
