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!

      No competitive record, but Comet Shine will soon be standing to sport mares, I'm told. His most famous offspring, the eventer Courageous Comet has the movement and attitude to be competitive in the pure dressage ring, especially crossed on the right mare.

        I've had the pleasure of seeing Sea Accounts up close and personal several times, as his current rider/trainer clinics regularly with my trainer and trailers in for weekend trips on a pretty regular basis. Not only is he a very handsome stallion, but so sweet and well-mannered. He comes into a strange barn with several mares, and he's quieter and better behaved than some of the horses that live there! Very elastic (especially for a TB) and fluid. Legs that go on for miles. Forward, but not hot or spooky. He's so talented, and I'm really excited to see him out at the shows this year. He's been successful in the show ring so far, but he's made some really great strides this off-season, so look out!

              somebody on here asked about this horse a few months ago, maybe longer. At the time I couldn't find him on USEF's website. If he did FEI levels I'd think he would need a USEF recording?
              Aso, there is a website for him that pushes him as an APHA stallion and mentions competed to 3rd level. Looks like the last update may have been year end 2009.
              This is the horse whose JC name is Reply, not Sinatra's Reply, right?
              Anybody know anything about this horse? Nice pedigree.

                My eldest stallion, Master Huntsman, had two that went well up the levels -- qualifying for regionals and getting high point awards at recognized shows. One showed to Fourth and schooled PSG/I-1 and the other showed to I-1, both out of unlikely mares. Other babies did well at lower levels, could certainly have gone on if the owners had the interest or ability. All always scored well on gaits, had alot of presence and wonderful work ethics. I have a little frozen from him and his son, Murray's Law, who is a excellent type for it. I took him to First Level, my fault not his that we didn't go higher -- we were trying to build our farm. Huntsman is 31 this year and Murray was 22 yesterday and not actively standing. They both have some wonderful bloodlines that are disappearing. I agree about Sea Accounts -- lovely stallion!

                  The only dressage that A Fine Romance did was when he was in training to be an eventer, so just very basic. He did however score one '10'.
                  He is an outstanding mover, balanced,very free in the shoulder, with a lot of extension, and suspension, as well as push from behind.
                  When he was doing dressage people wanted to know "what kind of warmblood that beautiful stallion" was.
                  He was being ridden by a top Canadian dressage rider, and she always said he had plenty more movement.
                  When he was at Hilltop he was being ridden lightly, and Susanne Hassler called me to say "he is a DRESSAGE horse".

                  He too has produced exceptional movers, site Champion foals, as well as one who tied for highest scoring foal in NA in her inspection year. (Bernie Ball's beautiful Amelia).
                  Many of his offspring are eventers, but a few were bred specifically for dressage.
                  A Fine Romance. April 1991 - June 2016. Loved forever.

                    Audited. I rode an incredibly talented horse by him, could have been the mare but my money would be on the Private Account line.

                      I, too, think Sea Accounts is worth a look. Quite a nice stallion.

                        Sea Accounts and Audited are related of course...

                        Need to chat with Viney about that!

                          Last year I got great feedback on my tb AFR daughter from dressage people. My dressage coach (a grand prix winner) wanted to know her sire, and said she could go grand prix, and calls her a ballerina. I cliniced with Shelley Francis, and she said she looked like a Jazz horse and I should breed her, and the judges were going to love her. Then I evented at 4 HTs, and had good Novice Test A's with great comments, one test with 4 9's and 9 8's, was the best of the day. The judge is a Hannoverian breeder who thought she was Dutch and told me to breed her. The scribe told me the judge said she would love to ride her.

                          Since I struggle to learn dressage and do sitting trot, Spirit deserves all the credit for this. She is coming 8yo and is also a champion local hunter, all with me, an amateur, and no pro rider, doing the training and showing.

                            I would think A Fine Romance and Sea Accounts are probably the best known in the sport horse world.

                            There is also a TB stallion at Oak Hill Ranch in Louisiana named Rodeo who is approved by Danish WB and Oldenburg (GOV).

                            I don't know if he is suitable as a dressage sire or not - he hasn't been shown (retired racehorse), and I haven't seen any video so don't know about his movement.

                              DY,
                              I've seen that guy in the listings too. Hope the SO has some foals coming out of good WB mares to show what he has to offer.

                              The SO has to go first before attracting outsides mares, IMO.

                                he's dual registered - both Jockey Club and APHA. One of those names is his JC name and the other is his APHA name

                                He looks like a lovely stallion!

                                      He is approved Hanoverian. I think he would have been at Celle but the Quarles purchased and imported him. He is very nice. If you search the archives here you will see that the German COTHers who know him from over there like him a lot also.

                                        We second Comet Shine as he throws exceptional movement. He is leggy and built uphill and is a very attractive bay with white. His babies also jump just as well.
