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!

  • Any Popeye K offspring going U/S?

    Hello! I fell in love with Popeye K the moment I met him at Devon a few years back and eventually would love to have own of his offspring one day. I'd love to hear how your "kids" are doing and picture/video of them. Does anyone have offspring that they've started under saddle yet? I'm currently horseless and living through you guys, humor me please.

    I know there are some under saddle because there were two or three from his first crop that qualified for and competed at the Royal Winter Fair last November in the hunter divisions. He has a son named Relevant K that was bred by a COTH member that did well in the Jumper Development Series classes and I know Tommy Serio has a couple that he was showing as well.

          Tommy has a pregreen called Tommy K, but he was injured in FL last year and is just coming back into work now. He also has a client who shows one named Power Play K in the pre-adults/low adults. He has two more coming along, but both of those are just coming three this year. One is out of the nice regular mare he had, Somerset Bay, and is pretty cute.

          Mine canters a little course of singles and does her changes, and is starting to work on lines. When it's not snowing or raining at least . I don't think she'll show until the end of the year though.

            ^^^Poppy's baby???? I can't wait to see more of her! Although I hope it's more mom's baby than dad's! Who does she seem like? Not that you can go wrong either way!

              They have very similar personalities and certain things about their ways of going, so she really takes after both of them. Very quiet and people-oriented. I'd say she looks mostly like her mother with some of Popeye's hind end, and moves mostly like her mother. One thing I'm glad about comes from her father, it took her mother her entire pregreen year to get a lead change .

                  In Ontario, Tosca and Southern Belle are two Popeye K kids who were shown Adult Amateur this year on the A circuit. Both did very well and qualified for the Royal. Nice horses!

                      Oh wow, they all sound so lovely!

                      CBoylen, I loved how Tommy rode Popeye K, I bet the ones he's bringing along are lovely! Does he have a website for his farm? Poppy sounds like she's coming along very well, and I second the updates please!

                      SummitSprings, your filly is gorgeous, you are one lucky chick!

                      Anyone know where I can find pictures of the ones that are showing? Thanks for all the help.

                              My hubby had the privilege of handling both Nyla and Relevant throughout their line class careers (weanling through 3 year old classes including the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair Cup classes)

                              Both lovely, lovely horses with superb temperments. Of course their mom was quite nice as well so best from both parents!

                                I have a boarder who has a Popeye K mare who is 5 this year. The horse is absolutely fabulous - great temperament, big and beautiful with lots of chrome, and straight forward. She's being trained as an event horse and cleaned up at BN last year with clean jumping rounds and very nice dressage. Judges love her (and so do I!!!).

                                I"ll look for some pics...

                                  TD- yes I am very lucky, she has the best temperment and is so sweet, I must encourage you, it has been so much fun having a foal!! But you'll hear lots of not so great stories, as it is a crap shoot. I'd pick Popeye K over and over, I still have never seen him in person!

                                    I found a selection of photos for Mystical M on sportfot.com

                                    For example:

                                    http://www.sportfot.com/image/book/s...392-030424.jpg

                                    Plus, the breeders of Popeye K (warmblood.com) show several siblings/half-siblings, as well as a number of his first offspring, on their website.

                                      No, he has no website. There are older picture on Popeye's site though. The first under offspring is Tommy K, and the second two are of the colt, Montpelier. I don't think there is one of the filly out of Somerset Bay, although the foal with the really fantastic blaze is its full brother.
                                      Anne Gittins has WEF pictures of Power Play. His rider is an amateur who started riding as an adult, and she has been the only one showing him. He was also only shown by an amateur and a junior as a young horse before she purchased him. Has a great attitude.
