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!

    I believe it is Marne Martin's young stallion.

      Yes, he is mine, and is a late foal, just turning three 28 June.

      I had leased the mare for a few years from a friend of mine. The mother is out of the Fackese line going back also to Facila, Karl Peters rather famous Oldenburg mare line.

      I also have the full sister who is two this year.

        Whoever was riding in the video looked like they were having a nice easy ride on such a young 'un!

        Marne, can you comment on what you feel Quaterback is siring in regards to the undersaddle experience--rideability, natural balance, good contact, soft back, forward?

        Sure would be interested to hear some first hand experience on this!

            He is lovely! I am also curious about the rideability. I have a two year old stallion prospect by Quaterback that I really like. The temperament is so good, he is so people oriented, curious, sensitive and easy to handle..I am hoping it continues once a saddle goes on his back.

            Do you have any pics/video of the filly you have?

              He is very nice. Thanks for posting the video. Hopefully more videos to come in the future?

                    It was me riding him, the second time ever, and I had just hopped on him that day after not seeing him for a few months. Quaterflash is a very good boy and given him another year or two wait till you see what we can do with that front leg. :-) He is very elastic through the shoulders and back, but needs more topline strength and muscle before the hind legs can come faster and the front legs flash more. Once we get him to that stage, we will present him. The canter and walk are super how they are. The trot has plenty of reach and shoulder freedom, but needs more power and muscle to come up and compress. It will be there though.

                    Mine is unique in type and the walk from those I have seen, but there are a number that look very elastic and fun to ride. Overall I am a big Quaterback fan. However, like the Florencios, there are many Quaterbacks that are not so easy to work with, but that is a lot to do with the mare. My friend Nancy Holowesko also has a super Quaterback out of her super Florencio mare, so you have to judge each horse as an individual and not make generalities.

                    The mother of Quaterflash has made beautiful, rideable horses with good gaits out of a variety of stallions, which is a feature more of the mare line, which I think is super important.

                    Quaterflash will change a lot as he matures these coming years, but will be a really good dressage horse. He is one of the nicest I have sat on, although I have a number of other very nice ones coming up. You should see the colt out of my mare Royal Coeur born this year from Dante Weltino.

                    We will present Quaterflash at some point to potentially do frozen semen for America, but his main job will be as an up and coming FEI horse for me. He also has to prove he can be a competition horse as a stallion or else... :-)

                      P.S. There were some photos of Floriada (the full sister) as a foal on my facebook page. She is similar in type and character to my stallion, just two years old this year, but is only born in July so we won't start her until the fall next year. We will see how she is under saddle, but my husband and I may keep her as a broodmare in Germany.

                          Here are photos and video of Dante Coeur at four months of age with his recipient mother:

                          And for fun of those curious - here is the foal video of the Christ - Stedinger - Cartousch filly we bought in 2009 out of the same dam line as Falcao. She has super gaits still (including the walk) and is very pretty so will put her under saddle next year at three. Some people had been asking about Christ before.

                            I just want to say that, if you EVER get tired of him and want to get him out of your hair, I'll take him, no problem. As a young 3 year old, there is nothing that I can see that I DON'T like.

                                  This is really nice of everyone to comment. I expect we will try to present Quaterflash next year at some point under saddle. He always could do the 30 day test and then a qualifier. For Dante Coeur, he just has to grow up and then we make a plan. :-)
