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!

  • pros and cons in regard to breeding to the stallion Jupiter..

    I realize he's on the smaller side. That's not an issue. Anything else?

  • #2
    Bumping...

    I'm interested too. His website/video look impressive and I saw one of his kids showing in the Jr's last weekend. I'd love to know more!

      I've had two and loved them both. Mine were out of a big, old-style TB mare. The gelding matured about 16.2 and the mare is right around 16hh. There is some blood in the Zeus line so I wouldn't necessarily pick a mare that was a hothead. They jumped really, really well...

        Can you comment on them conformationally? Movement?

          Sure-
          Conformationally they were both very correct and both were out of a very correct dam. Both of mine were very nice hunter type movers. I can't say how much of that was Jupiter as the mare was also a very good hunter mover.

          Honestly I would have another one..I was happy with mine....especially since my younger mares now get a nice dose of quiet from Palladio. I personally would choose a bigger, more medium type mare...I picked my Gonzo mare to breed to Zeus this year and she is the type that I would picture would also cross well on Jupiter...heavier but not heavy. Just my opinion. There are pics of the mare I crossed and the foals at http://www.crestlinefarm.com/brood_reba.htm
          and http://www.crestlinefarm.com/1997.htm
          and http://www.crestlinefarm.com/00jetta.htm

          I was going to use him on my Palazzo Civena mare but she wound up selling...ahh well...

                  chef jade had a Jupiter mare that was a beautiful mover and had a wonderful jump that she showed with much success. She was a lovely mare. Maybe she will log in here and give more details.

                        I was at Devon a couple years ago and friend and I about fell out over a lovely pony in a class, especially its way of moving.

                        The sire? Jupiter. We loved, loved, loved it.

                        The pony won the class, by the way.

                          We have a Jupiter granddaughter on the farm. She just arrived, but I'll get photos and video clips posted next week. She is Escapade / Jupiter, a bit small, but a very nice hunter type.

                            I have a Jupiter broodmare - gorgeous head and a great jump. She was truly the hack winner. I also sold a Jupiter baby and he's just turned three. He is also a fantastic mover and I expect him to be able to jump. Oh, and they both are very sweet, kind horses.

                            I met one of Joy's grooms from when she was showing and he said even as a young horses there was no prep, she was always easy.

                            I think it is a shame Jupiter was not utilized more. He has a lot to offer.

                                I LOVE Jupiter, but I always had smaller type of mares so he wasn't a great choice for me. I would really like to utilize him eventually somehow.

                                      I've had two Jupiters babies...

                                      Justice is a Jupiter baby, and I inherited another from a friend. I used to ride with ChefJade and we, along with another family in our barn, bought our babies from Cindy right around the time Jupiter was sold to Lindsey.

                                      Having been at Cindy's farm and looked a A LOT of Jupiter babies crossed to different types of mares, I would say that Jupiter stamps his get remarkably well. They were all well put together, great movers, and AMAZING jumpers. Justice is out of a Canadian Warmblood mare named Monsoon, and he was the quietest of all the ones I've ridden.

                                      I have not seen a lot of big Jupiter babies, although I know there are some out there. Justice has a HUGE step and handled the first years with no problem (at just two shows before I got pregnant ), and all of the ones I've known could jump the moon.

                                      Here's a link to one of his baby pictures:
                                      http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...&id=1116521576

                                      And here's a link of him in the 3'3", not even using himself yet:
                                      http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...&id=1116521576

                                      Here he is coming into his own in the First Years:
                                      http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...&id=1116521576

                                      I can't say enough good things about this stallion, and I wish he were used more. Not enough short people, I guess.
