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!

    Charmb, great post

    Honestly though, I am not trying to turn this thread into a debate about the merits and drawbacks of an open studbook, I was just pointing out that the CWB books and breeding policies are not similar nor are they modeled after the Hanoverian ones as a couple of people here claimed.

    As for the x-ray issue, you are going to find horses of all warmblood breeds that have DOD's, has nothing to do with the CWB horses in particular. But fwiw, the CSH horse auction horses had to have their x-rays ( many more views as well) approved by an equine vet before being accepted into the sale which I thought was a good idea as the market here almost demands that.

      Thank you Rodawn for that very informative post, it helped a lot to clarify the distinction. It was always my understanding that CSH was a type registry while CW was a breed registry.

        Ok, I will only make one more suggestion. Cw was incorporated in 1990, 22 years ago. The books have changed. And I know they used the Hanoverian as a blueprint for creating the association, including the founders going to German for help and suggestions. Honestly, that is exactly where the books come from. But, ask the Verband themselves and see what they say.
        Canada has more variation because of the nature of the mare base . But the Germans have a pre-stud book also and those mares can get into the main mare book. http://www.hannoveraner.com/2414.html They only need 3 gens to be in the stud book.

        As far as philosophy - you are right there. We are much more like the Dutch. Incorporating a wide range of Wb types and therefore more of an open book. It has worked very well for them.

          I don't know what they used to do (the CW's) but quite frankly I think 22 years ago they would have had an impossible go of things if they would have modeled their books and policies after the Hanoverians considering the mare base here then. I have a feeling that is what certain people tell their members because they simply are on two opposite sides of the spectrum when it comes to breeding policies. Just because some of the names of the books are the same doesn't mean they function the same way.

          To explain further, the Hanoverian books are for Hanoverian branded horses and for the odd individual from a very specific population IF (and only if) they show qualities needed to be an ASSET to the breed. All warmbloods that come from the accepted populations are only able to be placed in the highest book IF they score high enough. Either the mare is a benefit to the genetic pool or it is not. There is no grey area. TB, Arabian and Anglo mares can be place in the stud book (middle book) as well but ONLY mares from these three populations IF they score high enough and of course branded Hano mares if they don't score high enough to be placed in the MSB. In essence the only horses allowed to contribute genetically aside from Hanoverian branded mares are horses that can achieve the same scores a Han branded mare has to to be elligible for Elite Mare status (in Canada and Germany they need the 1A prize as well) ie she must be better than the average Hanoverian mare.

          Canadian Warmbloods basically have a book for every type of mare that could be presented and any mare that is placed in any of these books can contribute genetically on some level. This is, as you can see, a very different scheme from the one mentioned above.

          Also, CWs do not look at blood the same way the Hanoverians do. Trakehners, Tbs, Arabs and Anglo Arabs are not seen as assets to the breed, they are placed in lower books and are not eligible for MSB entry. Again, I am not arguing for or against here but really, looking at the two registries how can you find any real similarities at all between the two in these regards?? They are on opposite ends of the spectrum, they do not share similar breeding policies and I don't see evidence that they ever have.

          As far as philosophy - you are right there. We are much more like the Dutch. Incorporating a wide range of Wb types and therefore more of an open book. It has worked very well for them

          Yes, it has. A studbook can be too closed for it's own good, just as it can be too open. I won't argue with you there.

            I have not read the whole thread, so not sure if this has been mentioned yet. My former coach bred CWHBA and my gelding is also registered CWHBA. I've had quite extensive experience with the organization. As a potential buyer, I was MUCH more impressed by the CSHA sale. Yes, they had fewer horses, but their marketing strategy was bounds and leaps better than CWHBA. Each horse had photos of a clean, well groomed horse presented properly and a video to showcase the horse's training and ability. I also feel as if the riding horse quality is overall higher for the CSHA auction. Again, that could be due to the smaller number of horses, or more targeted pool of horses, but the riding horses available in the CWHBA auction seem to vary from very little/amateur training to training/showing in a professional program, to everything in between. From my experience, the CWHBA auction is where many people go to get a warmblood prospect rather inexpensively (which can be seen in the auction results from last year which were quite poor).

              This has been a really intersting read. This is the first time ill be attending both-so be interesting to see the different quality of horses in the flesh
              In my opinion, a horse is the animal to have. 1300 pounds of raw muscle, power, grace, and sweat between your legs - it's something you just can't get from a pet hamster.

                I've been to the fall classic sales a few times over the past few years, and there is definitely both ends of the scale. There are some really lovely horses, and then there's the some that are, well, just not. Overall though, I definitely think the quality of horses in general has been improving over the past few years. I think if the organization can keep moving forward and improving, there is a ton of potential for the Canadian registries.

                I think the CSHA sale was absolutely great, well organized, well run, and looking at all the work and prep they did beforehand, it was no wonder that those horses commanded a FAR higher price than they would have gone for a the fall sale. They definitely marketed it extremely well, and everyone looked at it as a higher quality, more prestigious sale. Maybe if the CWHBA did something similar to that for their June sale, prices wouldn't be wouldn't so dismal for the breeder. Don't get me wrong, if I had the funds I would be picking something up at the fall sale, it is definitely a buyer's market right now! But I know a few breeders don't plan to consign anything at the CWHBA sales for the next foreseeable future, it's just not worth it to them. They'd rather hold out for that private buyer instead of letting nice horses go for peanuts

                Very interesting discussion though. No matter what, there is always room for improvement for sure.

                    I do I think everyone was pretty pleased- markets were up from last year.

                            I know at least 3 of the "scratches" were sold in the few days leading up to the auction, but not sure about the others!

                              4 horses were sold to New York and 2 to Illinois as well
                              In my opinion, a horse is the animal to have. 1300 pounds of raw muscle, power, grace, and sweat between your legs - it's something you just can't get from a pet hamster.
