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!

  • beautiful babies!
    Here's my yearling Magicaul Powers, the only PB Arabian out of my Hanoverian approved mare, Caraechstrodinair. His sire is Magic Aulrab.


    • stripes, I had to go peek back at his album - what a really, really nice guy there!

          Thank you! I know Arabians aren't the most popular in the dressage court - hoping to change that a little with this colt - he's built more like a WB and really moves like one. He's just smaller


          • Better shot of my yearling who won't be a year and a-half until January. From September: http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e1...bb/Socks10.jpg

            • Here we were at my first show. Thankfully she'd had a few other outings, but she was good! Two blues and a good experience. My novice husband had a wonderful time walking her around the show grounds and handling her for the five days we were there.

              • Beautiful babies! Our kids are just hanging out in pasture growing up but we were fortunate to have Angela Pritchard come out to take photos of some of the kids. Here are some pics of our 2011 Acodetto-Final Pool colt. A late foal, he's about 14 months in these pics.



                • Here is the most recent photo of Gwenhwyvar (Cantos x Indorado x Fedor). She is still growing up in the fields of Holland, so photos are few and far between compared to my homebreds

                  • Just something fun to share. Here's my yearling, Magicaul Powers with his best buddy, G, the farms resident goose. They're watching us do a photoshoot with another yearling. Pretty cute stuff.


                    • Mine is miniature. I am concerned he will stay pony sized....He's very pretty though which is a bonus.


                      • Is she a silver bay?
                        love the color!

                          • I have two at home, sold the 3rd one. Of the two, one is a Romanov who started life VERY LONG legged and bit awkward. He had a little something that made me keep hoping but I had a Sagnol filly out of my best mare that was outclassing him by a mile. Well he caught up in looks and movement and at the final USDF show and GAIG championships, she won the first day with him in reserve and the second and final day he won. But, though he had big movement, is was not particlurly loose and swingy and he did not negotiate obstacles with the ease of the filly. Well yesterday he trotted around and I swear his back was looser and he clearly moves better than the filly now and he negotiated the little obstacle just as well as she did???! The only thing I can think of is that his legs were so long it took him a while to get them under control....??? But, also all of my horses have the nicest coats I have ever had. All of them!! So, I am looking for something they have in common since they are not fed the same. Some are ponies that are on perpetual diets for instance. Some are not easy keepers. The only thing I have done different is LMF feed but that is pretty recent. Before that, they ate locally formulated mare and foal feed by our Grange Co-op. But, of course the hay 'could' be a factor, too as it would not be the exactly the same from year to year even if it came from the same fields which it does not. Oh, the other thing is I do fecal samples to worm instead of just evey 2 months. MOST of my horses MOST Of the time do NOT need to be wormed....?? So, the other different factor is they are consuming less wormer and when they get wormed it is targeted. Love to hear comments on this. If I dont get any, I will start a thread on it.


                            • Here are a couple of pictures of Bodega Bay SF by Balou de Rouet out of EM Francesca by Wanderer. Bo is maturing into a super athletic as well as being a pretty boy.

                              • I'm actually crazy happy with how ours is looking right now - she turned 1 in June AND is full Irish. I haven't shown her on the line, she'll just hang out and be a horse until I can start her (and I can't wait for that day!).

                                The 2011 we bred (full Dutch WB) has been showing in hand with her new owner and won a couple championships at dressage breed shows.

                                On a random note, why the heck do all the pictures show up on coth now as a big X with no image? I can't view any of the premium members photos any longer, including my own????
