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.

  • Prospects bred for eventing

    I have a friend looking for an event prospect that may be able to go prelim one day. She is on a limited budget and can buy a very green prospect that has 90 days on it if necessary. Has made up her last 2 horses.
    With a 10 to 15K budget is it possible to find a nice prospect from a breeder? She likes a bold forward horse.....where would breeders suggest looking, lives in nj. Willing to travel of course but not across the country

    We have a full sister to a horse we sold a couple years ago that is eventing. She is by Consul out of an international GP mare who was part of several Swedish nations cup teams.

    We broke this filly last year. After five weeks under saddle she is walk, trot, canter and jumping. She never once spun, bucked or fought through her training. Love this girl! She isn't big yet in size, but has a big stride and careful jump. Moves well on the flat and IMO is better than her brother.

    I truely believe she will be one of those mares who will walk through fire with her rider. She's brave, smart and has plenty of blood. Her Dam is small and jumped 1.60m and that spunk to jump courses of that size is well placed in her offspring.

    PM if interested.

      I think if she's looking for a nicely bred WB prospect with 90-days, that it will be a search. Not impossible, but could take some time. To me, it's the 90-days part. One of my prospects after 90-days will be close to BN ready and if they are showing aptitude for xc, then they will be priced as UL prospects.

      She could probably find a NICE TB started by a good eventer in that price range. Courtney Sendak in Baltimore comes to mind, as does Phyllis Dawson. And there are a number of good eventers in PA, VA who have good reputations for nicely started horses. You might post on the eventing boards for some other names.

      Happy horse hunting!!!

            Yep. You'll have to be selective - you'll probably not find a WB from the larger farms started for this price range. Definitely TB's, you can probably find 1000 with 90 days retraining & upper level potential in this range. There's also usually a good supply of WB's from smaller farms in this range.

            Watch out for the "real good deals" tho, unless you're experienced with problem horses. We just bought 2 (intentionally, issues fully disclosed) with world class talent and PRCA aspirations. We've got a little ability, adequate time, and not very much money!

            Prelim isn't too onerous, most well bred sport horses with average talent, a good rider, and adequate training should be capable of that - I've got 15 on the back 30 (we turn'em out until they're late 3 yo's to grow up naturally) that probably meet that criteria. Look for soundness (minor structural flaws are not an issue at prelim like they are at advanced) and a good mind first of all.

              Someone on FB just posted a totally-retrained TB who ran in the KY Derby and the site showed him under saddle and over fences. He moves like a warmblood! Needs experienced rider but adoptable for 3K. He may still be posted on my FB page, or Denny Emerson's. The gelding's name is Sam P. and he is still on D.E.'s page.

                I SAW that horse (not in person, on the FB ad), he is spectacular! No guarantee of soundness, obviously, but DAMN is that a nice, nice horse. (Sounds like "not for an amateur" is good advice , but if a competent, patient, ambitious rider were to get their hands on this guy??) Wowsa...

                  I reposted that lovely horse too - and my first thought when I saw him was eventer - athletic, beautiful mover (I would disagree with Diane here and say he moves like a good moving Thoroughbred plenty of push from behind.
                  Lovely, lovely horse.
                  I hope someone gives him a wonderful home. I think the OP for the horse is New Vocations.

                    Fred is correct - Sam P is listed on New Vocations site with pics and vids. He is by Cat Thief. I happen have one by Cat Thief who is a bit leggier but moves the same way. Very cool horse.
