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!

  • Cielo B - BWP stallion

    Hey, does anyone know where the video is of him coming in 2nd in the 7/8 yr old jumpers in Gulfport went? I thought I saw it here and can't find it. He's a big chestnut horse with a man riding - made it look very easy.

    Oooh, i love him!
    I have a baby by his 'brother' standing at the same farm, I cannot WAIT to see! weeee!!


    • #3
      Love him too - he is definitely one to watch. I've had my eye on him for the last 2 years and hope to see him continue to move up. And I love seeing a standing stallion out & actively competing - get a chance to see him in action as well as in pretty pictures. Makes me want to get a mare just to have a Cielo baby.

        Agree that he is droolworthy enough to make me wish my gelding was a mare. It's really nice to see a stallion out doing the job he's supposed to be making foals to do (holy awkward sentence. Batman).

        I think his owner posts on here, but I can't for the life of me remember her alter.

          He is AWESOME! I just bought one of his 2007 babies and can't wait to get her under saddle! She may have been bred for jumpers but she is going to make one he!! of a Dressage horse!
          This filly is the most level headed young horse I have ever worked with. She is going over poles, tarps and thru water without even a question.

          I never thought I would love a red mare but I was wrong!

            Do you think the stimulus package includes a "sarapony gets a CieloB baby" provision?

            No? Why not! I neeeeeeeeeeeed one.


            • #7
              I won a breeding to him for this year on the CANTER auction.

              I have a chestnut mare with high whites so the resultant foal should be mighty blingy!


              • #8
                His owner posts as Rising Star Farm. He's a lovely boy all right, and since the BWP is a performance horse registry -- and they like to emphasize the performance part -- it is always great to see the young stallions out there performing and doing what they were bred to do.

                    I love Cielo B! He is a very athletic boy and has done very well moving up the levels. His owner Ronda is super to deal with and offers a great deal to breeders. I would suggest contacting her to get more video and pics.


                    Cielo in my opinion is waaaayyy underused at this point. I think his babies will be making quite an impression as they get older.


                    • #11
                      I'm glad I'm not the only one who dreams they had a mare just so I could breed to Cielo B! Someday...

                        Wow! - thanks for all of the kind words and the posting of Cielo B's most recent video.

                        Cielo B has been such a joy to own. I'm excited about what he and his rider, Rick Harris (at Hunter's Bluff Farm) are doing in the jumper ring! I'm also delighted that Cielo and Rick have done well in the Young Jumpers - a wonderful development program!

                        Cielo's foals are starting under saddle....Fresia should make her debut in the hunter ring this year, Galaxy should start in dressage and then move to the jumper ring (http://www.freewebs.com/dayspringfarm/apps/blog/), there are several other "G" babies that should be in the ring as well this year. The "H" group has been VERY exciting. One foal was sold to a jumper barn - another was sold to Canada (to Dilli - and I LOVE the updates and videos).


                        • #13
                          Oh my word he makes that look so easy! What a great video, and such a gorgeous boy. He's definitely on my short list for when Visa gets bred again


                          • #14
                            He looks GREAT Ronda. Glad I go to see that new video. It's great to see these young stallions moving up the levels and doing well. Go Cielo B!

                              Congratulations Ronda !!
                              Cielo B and Rick look fantastic. Cielo B actually looks like his dad when he was jumping .
                              Simsalabim , Montana and Bannockburn Farm are feeling really proud.

                                He is a very nice horse with tremendous scope and ability. The filly Friesa caught my eye a couple of years ago. In fact, that's what made me check out Rising Star Farm. It is a prime example of a great program right here in the USA.

                                Congrats Rhonda!

                                  New found, I think not. I really liked the stallion first time I met him. I bred Fresia and wish I had been in a position at the time to keep her and show her myself. LOVELY filly. Super scopey, easy to work with and movement that would have been noticed anywhere.

                                  I too am glad to see that he is out making his way. More excited to see him actually have to work over the jumps someday. He's on the short list for one of my TB mares this year. Problem is Rising Star's choice of stallions is making it a hard decision.

                                    I am tickled pink with my newly acquired Cielo B filly, Galaxy. She is coming three in May, and absolutely wonderful to deal with. Cielo is wonderful in person, and very gentlemanly. One thing I have noticed about his offspring is that you can tell who their daddy is, and that he gives them his calm attitude. I can't wait to have the opportunity to have another Cielo B baby in the future!

                                    PS - I now have a picture of Galaxy's first time with a saddle posted on my blog

                                      Galaxy looks great Kimberlee! I can't wait to see pictures of YOU in the saddle on Galaxy!

                                        It is very true about his personality on the ground. I know Rick Harris (the trainer who rides Cielo) and I have done the body clipping on Cielo numerous times. He is always very easy to handle and the most un-stud like around the barn.
                                        Rhonda, one day when I find a mare, I will be calling you for a little Cielo clone!
