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 LOVE my Cubito baby!!! VIDEO ADDED 7/3/13 (Post #12)

    After tragically loosing my A/O jumper prospect a couple of years ago, I made the decision to purchase a yearling jumper prospect. Originally, I had planned to look at horses that were a bit older and already started, but just couldn't find anything that I really fell in love with.

    I ended up going to a breeder and looking at a field full of yearlings, of which I singled out three and looked much closer. I ended up going with a yearling Cubito-Landgraf filly. I left her at the breeder's, living out until she turned 3. They started her under saddle (3 weeks) walk-trot-canter. I went to pick her up, rode her twice, and hauled her home. She spent the summer turned out and was minimally handled. I started riding her about three weeks ago, just 20 minutes a day, three or four days a week.

    She cross ties like a champ, is phenomenal for the farrier, and has been one of the best-minded, easiest horses I have ever worked with. While she is only 3, and still has her baby-isms (pawing at the gate, banging her door at feeding time), however, she has such a great attitude and willing personality. I am so pleased with this filly. Anyone looking for an upper-level horse with an ammy friendly personality should give this stallion a look.

    Not to mention, the breeder is awesome to work with.

    I love these posts =)

    Who is this breeder you speak of? I'd love to know where she came from!

      Is the mother Lilly? I have a Czechmate x Lilly that is 6 this year, bought in utero before gk had Lilly. She has the same brain!

        Darden: The breeder is GK Performance Horses in Andersonville, TN.

        Gibson: Yes, her dam is Lilly! Glad to hear that you are thrilled with yours, also.

          Happy to hear that.

          I have one mare in foal in Cubito and am very excited to see what we get in late January.

          I have to say that the stallion owners were fantastic to work with. They were at WEF showing and were still very flexible and accomodating about collections.

            Best wishes to you, Feria! I'm sure you won't be disappointed. May I ask what type of mare you crossed with him?

              I too love these posts! The only thing that would make it better are pictures

                I knew someone would ask. I will get some pictures over the weekend, she is difficult to photograph without help because she insists on being so close to me.

                  I used him on an Irish TB mare. She has done the jumpers up to 1.15m. She is capable of more but has been held back by me. She is built like a tank and jumps with scope and carefulness. She needed a bit more loft and elasticity in her gaits.

                  Here is pics and few videos of Wendy.

                  Now that I have shared I would love to see your little one!

                    Here are some pictures of mine. They are from August of her yearling year up to today.

                        I wanted to add an update to this post. I am so pleased with this mare. Here is a link to more recent photos. She is now a 4 year old.

                            I was very interested in breeding to him but since I am in Canada it's so expensive!!! I still think I might try and take the chance next year! I have been looking online and no one has been selling his babies but the breeder! They must like them!


                            • Original Poster

                              I really like my mare. She has been great to bring along. We went to a couple shows this year just to get out and see the world and nothing seemed to phase her. She has a very willing attitude and is super athletic. She also has a great personality and tries very hard to please. I had an older mare that I was looking forward to have bred to Cubito this year, but unfortunately, she had some issues and we were unable to have her bred.

                              If you have the chance to have one bred to Cubito, take advantage of the opportunity. It would be very difficult for me to ever sell this one.
