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!

  • Pony Stallion Suggestions for a Lovely Mare

    Welsh cross Mare. Great show record in the Medium Division. 13.1ish. Bay with White. Always very good in the Model. Moves great- rather warmbloody. Could jump in better form. Very nice temperament.

    She is by Conway High Honors and out of a Brer Jeremy Fisher mare.

    We would like to improve the jump. Her head is a little big, but she gets away with it because she is marked so beautifully.
    We would like to stay away from Grey because she is such a marketable color.

    She's not full section B welsh, so I'm thinking it would be risky to breed to a crossbred for size? I've done that before with wildly varying sizes.

    We would probably like to get a medium or large and would like something marketable in the foal.

    Ideas?

    If you are on Facebook, like Farmore Farms Welsh Ponies. *Telynau Royal Charter is spectacular. Not adding size to make a large, but will give you the rest and more. He speaks for himself. -Lara Brown

            The mare belongs to a client who has owned her since she was a three year old. Her name is Brownlands Miss Sissie. You can see a picture on my webstite's sales page. If we don't find a good lease situation for her, the plan is to breed her in the spring.

            We're definitely looking to breed for a show prospect. I really like Royal Charter. He's produced winners on the line as well as successful pony hunters.

            What's a GRP?

              Shame you are against gray. I have always been a fan of schoponi a schoenfeld son who is pony sized and foals stay as such. If I were to go pony looking to improve head and for jump it would be him.

                Please don't misunderstand. I'm not against greys. They're beautiful, but if you would look at this mare, she's a gorgeous deep bay with white. In terms of marketability, her color is a huge plus. It's what caught the eye of her owner in the first place. My client laid eyes on her and say "wow". I've bought and sold enough horses and ponies to know that buyers oftentimes say, "Any color but a grey". Greys are quite plentiful in the pony world and let's face it, they are a lot of work.

                So in this case, I'd like to consider color when choosing a stallion for this mare. I'm looking to produce a highly marketable pony hunter foal.

                I don't know that much about the dam sire. I know he's Farnley Lustre bred.

                    Totally understand your concern over color in this very special case, and I agree with you. Are you wanting another medium or a large? What kind of size does this mare's pedigree have?

                      Why not a Welsh Cob? I'm a big fan of North Fork Cardi. While his discipline is dressage (he was beating WBs at GP), he is a super athletic guy and his foals are being highly graded. He is also a dark bay if I recall correctly.

                        Because the owner is looking to produce a fancy pony hunter foal. I stand a Welsh Cob stallion as well, but it would be the last breed I would ever recommend to produce a typey pony hunter foal that would be competitive on the East Coast hunter circuit. The OP mentioned she is looking for a foal that will be very marketable on the pony hunter circuit. The pony hunters need to be VERY flat kneed movers, low head and neck set and an elegant and streamlined frame. Definitely not the description of a Welsh Cob!

                          Gottcha! I'm certainly no pony expert (obviously). And the hunter thing is another world, so....never mind....

                          But NF Cardi sure is cool! I keep trying to find a mare that suits him...and waiting till I'm sure there is a market for the foal...

                            I'm not sure how you would feel about a buckskin, but I love Mynach Mystical. He's produced some really fancy hunter prospects

                              Feel free to check out Morning Glorys Ilyushin www.muskokalakesconnemaras.com Very huntery mover and throws his colour alot of the time too.
                              I also second Mynach Mystical... I fully intend to breed to him at some point to get a nice little driving pony! He is a stunner

                                OP has a nice hunter performance pony and wants a hunter performance pony as a result. She should select a stallion that has proven hunter pony performance in his pedigree.

                                  The problem with breeding a medium is a lot of the top hunter pony sires are smalls. So you do have to think outside the box a little. I actually have two mediums I want to breed at some point but am also stuck on finding the right pony sire. I am strongly thinking Schoponi but that is because I have a Schoenfeld mare that I adore and really like the bloodline.

                                    You could contact Orchard Hills Ponies http://www.orchardhillfarm.com/ and they would be able to help you choose from their lineup of stallions. They are very knowledgeable and produce fantastic hunter ponies.

                                      No pony stallion will have done the hunters though with a performance career mounted by a kid. So I can see a proven stallion by virtue of his kids , but the stallion himself will not have had a true hunter career would they?

                                        Not as a hunter pony. But the most proven pony hunter sires have the performance bred into the pedigree.
