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!

  • Irish Stallion Steeped in Luck

    Anyone have experience with his babies? The website only shows a few babies of his, wondered how many he's got and what their temperament is.

    I can't answer your question but fwiw I do know his trainer thinks very highly of him.

      Disclaimer: I am friends with his owners, and I like them very much.

      I am also good friends with the trainer who started him U/S and I know she LOVES him.
      She bred two of her TB mares to him, and the babies are lovely. Both of them are just starting their show careers, and I have seen them go, and they are super nice.

      Eamon (Steeped In Luck) is a beautiful horse and has a lovely temperament, and seems to be passing that on to his babies.

        I know of 3 offspring and each is exceptional...one is an approved stallion...purebred. The Irish Draught Sport Horse from a TB mare is lovely and the IDSH from a warmblood mare(dutch I think was outstanding as well) so to do so well out of so few offspring says a lot.



        sorry I haven't found a link to the new stallion or the warmblood cross.

          I had a ID filly by him last yr (sold in-utero) She has a wonderful temperament. Her owner adores her and is very happy. I have friends who know him very well (live close to where he is in training) and say he is lovely to be around

            I'm looking to breed my Irish Draught mare to him next year possibly. Saw him at a couple shows this summer and very much liked what I saw.
            Wonderful ponies for family or show!

              We bred and own the halfbred gelding Lucky Punch that Columbus mentioned. He's a big, gorgeous, super-moving athletic horse with a puppy-dog disposition and a super work ethic. My husband rode him last fall under western tack - roping saddle and bosal - and he came right to it, soft and easy. He's still for sale

              I have met and handled the purebred RID stallion son, Pairadox Gold Coin RID, and he has the same soft and pleasant personality, and is a VERY nice and traditional young stallion, and he will be breeding to a limited book next spring.

              Everyone I have chatted with who have or have met one of these offspring speaks highly of them. Good solid traditional Irish Draught types - what more can you want!

              Feel free to contact me if you would like more detailed reporting.

                I have a mare....

                Hi! I have a ISH mare who will be 5 this next year by Steeped in Luck out of a TB mare I used to own. She is AWESOME and has been from day one! Her temperment is wonderful, I started her under saddle this last spring as a 4yr old. She has been level headed and quiet about being ridden and never once offered to be naughty. I feel like this mare will do anything I ask of her.

                I don't regret my decision to breed to him and would do it again in a heart beat...in fact, there are times when I wish I wouldn't have sold the TB mare so I could have another.

                I hope this link works, this is her back in January.


                If those links don't work I'd be happy to email a few photos of her!

                  I have a 5.5 yr old 17.0 hh Steeped in Luck baby and he is fantastic! We are currently being coached to event with Jen Irwin and he is a great mover, willing, athletic, good scope jumping, sure footed, curious, fancy mover, and has an unbelievable tempermant! He very rarely acts up and when he does ,which lasts about 3 seconds, it is short lived because all he really wants to do is please you. He doesnt have a mean bone in his body and would try to do his best always. I have to remind myself that he is still very young but he makes you forget because he does things so well. He is very sensitive in the seat and will change leads with just a slight change of seat weight. I am so fortunate to be able to own such a wonderfully bred ISH. Couldnt have done it without Steeped in Luck and his dam Colby Aisle from owners Emma and Jenny in Kingston (3/4 TB and 1/4 Belgium Draft). Everyone I know that has acquired a horse from this wonderful stallion agrees that his calm, smart, strong, hardworking traits come through time and time again. All of us say the same things, HOW GREAT THESE HORSES ARE AND HOW MUCH THEY ACT JUST LIKE EAMON! Pics/video available.

                    I have had the privilege of bringing along 2 Eamon babies. One is a 5yo mare out of a TB mare and the other is a 4yo colt, also out of a TB mare. They are both 'pocket ponies' that you could cuddle all day (yes, even the stallion!). They are smart horses who learn very quickly and are eager to impress. Their naturally expressive gaits make everything look easy! They can jump too! I have evented both horses up to pre-training. They always win the dressage and enjoy galloping around the cross course without a stop yet! They are very brave horses that will try their heart out at anything you ask. I can't say enough about these babies they are truly AMAZING! Wish I had one for myself!
