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!

    Thanks, Reg. Yup, Omni was a cribber but his son, by my Rubinstein mare is simply wonderful without vices (Dickens). As is the other son, Tchula who must be getting close to 17 hands.

    Omni had about 10 foals, I'd guess. Two of them I bred... there are several here in VA, eventers bred them. Deedee Clarke had one.

    My little Dicken is just a doll. Here he is at his inspection http://www.photoreflect.com/store/Or...000&po=0&pc=64

      I acknowledged it was an old thread when I resurrected it. I have a Heisman grandson here and thought some Heisman fans would like to see him.

        Nice baby by Omni. That was a good cross for sure.

          So since VAbred showed hers, I will show mine.
          This is my Heisman grandson, a 17.1h, gelding - thanks!

              Oh yes! He is so kind, easy to work with and a ton of fun to ride.

                Yes Heisman had a career ending injury. He ruptered his DDF when he landed after a fence in a class in Florida. He came home and rehabbed for over a year and was then brought back slowly to work. He could be hacked but was never competed again. He was only bred to a few mares each year as Sale was not particularly driven to run a big breeding operation. She also had the satllion Golan. Heisman was not very fertile and he did not settle that many mares. I rode for Sale at that time and had the honour of being the first one to back him after his injury. He was a big horse..

                I have a mare by him on the barn right now. She has his build but is black with white legs. Love this mare and cannot wait until she retires to the broodmare life.

                  Another Heisman grandson

                  I just bought a son of Omni. He has an amazing personality and though we have not done much yet, I have great (albeit amateur) expectations.

                    Wow - this thread gets resurrected once again!

                    I had a Heisman mare that I bought from Joan Watt many years ago - a product of her wonderful breeding program - Kyrie D'Triomphe. I bred her to my Guaranteed Gold stallion and sold her in foal to a trainer/rider in NY - Myrna Treuting. The resultant coming 3 year old gelding shows phenomenal jumping form. He will be a lot of fun to watch!

                    Myrna - I believe - is looking to breed Kyrie to Gemini Twist. It will be a really neat cross and really looking forward to seeing what that mating produces as well

                    And I do agree - there are SO few Heisman offspring around - period. He was such a neat stallion. Its fun to hear about his grandsons and grand daughters now ...

                            I have a Heisman grandaughter, out of Kyrie D' Triomphe. She will be 5 in July. She's been a late bloomer but boy did she bloom!!!!!!! She is LOVELY. She was no problem to break, is a lovely mover and can JUMP! Also has the BEST mind

                              Nice to hear the grandbabies are so good!! I bred my mare Can't Act to Heisman after seeing him jump at Devon. Kyrie D' Triomphe was the result. Kyrie debuted the Hampton Classic pinning with a new rider who needed her in a pinch. Absolutely beautiful rider from a mare who has not mileage in the AA's.
                              Can't Act is also the dam of Grande Saber. You can't go wrong with that mareline!

                                Funny to see this thread, Kyrie is one of my daughter's favorite rides- she has done clinics and shown with her and loves her. Her 3 yo is for sale and I think will finally give GG a performer offspring in the show ring, probably as a small junior hunter, a testament to Kyrie's quality and the Heisman influence.

                                  And just read on FB that the lady I sold Kyrie D'Triomphe to is breeding her to Gemini Twist ...

                                  Crossing my fingers SO hard that they see the coveted black dot in a few weeks time on THAT upcoming foal!

                                    GemniTwist X Heisman - So excited to see Kyrie being utilized! I was lucky to get one baby by him since Heisman had so few offspring. The breeder in me is really happy today!!!

                                      I have a Heisman offspring and have always been curious to know about Heisman, but haven't had much luck in my internet searches. I learned more in this threat and searching on COTH then I had in years!
