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!

              Yep, the boy doesn't have legs....... he has springs! I'm sure he could jump the moon if you asked him to try it.
              Practice! Patience! Persistence!

                    FOR THOSE WHO ASKED ABOUT BALOUS CAREER...

                    From the "Elite Stallions" website:
                    BALOU DE ROUET IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR JUMPING STALLIONS, CONSISTENTLY PRODUCING GOOD TEMPERAMENT, EXCELLENT MOVEMENT AND POWERFUL JUMPERS. SUITABLE FOR AMATEUR AND PROFESSIONAL RIDERS, HE SUITS ALL BUT THE SMALLEST MARES.
                    This stallion had the most offspring in the 2008 Bundeschampionate, (German National Championships) with 3 finalists in the 2009 event. He has over 35 approved sons including the Munich Licensing Champion , Balous Bellini.

                    A picture perfect career: after winning one young horse class after another and gaining marks up to 10.0 in his 30-day test, Balou du Rouet successfully competed at the 1.50m level. In 2005 he caught everyone’s attention by scoring the highest mark of 9.2 at the National Championships, making him one of Germany’s top 4 licensed stallions. His enormous jumping talent, combined with great elastic gaits and a fascinating charisma make Balou du Rouet an exciting choice for the breeders of sports horses. Once again, Balou du Rouet emphasises his dominant quality as a producer in type, elegance and movement, with numerous foals at many different auctions. He continuously produces finalists for the German foal championships - in 2011his foal Buenos Aires achieved the highest price of the 2nd day at the Zangersiede auction - 32,000 euros. His son Bakony was the most expensive foal at the Hanoverian auction, at 23,500 euros.

                    Offspring of Balou du Rouet have been approved at almost every stallion licensing, including BE BRAVO, who sold for €350.000 as the most expensive horse of the 2007 AOS auction. In 2011 his offspring doubled their lifetime winnigs to 267,000 euros, as his first crop started jumping internationally at the age of 8 - including Baloubetta du Soleil winning at Rotterdam; Horse Gym's Balzaci winning in Leipzig; Best of Blou winning in Neustadt. The same year, his maternal half brother Cornet's Balou won the Bundeschampionat for 5yr olds.
                    PS:

                    Hope this helps! If you would like to see some of Balous older offspring in the USA, feel free to check them out on my website www.sportingchancefarm.com , and my GB page....

                      Link to BLUP where you can find all stats, I think he was the most used stallion in Sweden (among the jumpers) in both 2010 and 2011. Probably because of his famous dad Casall La Silla (WC and maybe Olympic horse 2012 ridden by Rolf-Goran Bengtsson).

                      You´ll find lot´s of videos and pictures on google of Casall La Silla and Cabachon!

                        Absolutely adore him. Thank you for posting.
                        Covering our Guidam filly with him this year and wish I could fast forward 360 days.
                        I just think he is a 2 for one deal with such jump and superb movement. Bon Balou is testament to that and also Balloon who is with Shane Breen could easily do pure dressage.

                          My oldest Balou offspring, Babalou, is showing with a hunter trainer in New York and is currently standing #2 with USEF for Zone 2 in the First Year Greens.

                          I have his full sister in training in VT.

                            Great news HFSH!

                            Great news HFSH!! Photos please?
                            Our oldest Balou du Rouet, Athena SCF Ster (Balou du Rouet X Wanroij Preferent), spent the winter in Wellington (mostly schooling, and growing up). It is my understanding that she never had a rail, ever : ) There is a photo of her (big chestnut with tons of chrome) jumping in the International Ring, on my Facebook Page, and on our website..... She will be showing the East Coast circuit this summer, so keep an eye out for her : )

                            Of special interest is that Athena was given a Ster predicate for her DRESSAGE ability by the KWPN Jury, but is an exceptionally scopey jumper!


                            DISCLAIMER, Athena was sold almost two years ago, so NO Advertising here : )

                              I'm really leaning towards breeding my mare to him either this year or next year. she is 16.2, by Rolls Royce, and out of a mare by Roemer. I think he would be the perfect match for her to produce a nice jumper.
