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!

      VirginiaBred,

      Perhpas my terminology was too broad and/or I should have suggested we do pony stallions by discipline specifics. What do you think? I would love to hear about up and coming Pony Hunter Stallions, please do share. Also, if others want to share about Dressage Pony Stallions or_____________(fill in the genre). Please do share. You will have to excuse my overgeneralization. . . we Connie folks have it in our brains that ours can "Do It All" (ahem, no bias here )

        Well, many breeders have used our stallion with sport ponies in mind -- hunter ponies too, but that is the lovely versatility of the Welsh!

        We are EAGERLY awaiting the arrival (perhaps this weekend!) of a new Section B Welsh Pony colt from Scotland.

        *Wedderlie Marmaduke is a beautifully bred colt, sired by Moelview Mohawk, a champion in his own right, but also a stellar producer of many champions in the UK. Marmaduke is the first foal of Wedderlie Mariota, Royal of Scotland Champion, and full sister to our *Wedderlie Mardi Gras.

        Marmaduke can be seen at http://www.welshponies.com/marmaduke.htm and the story of his purchase at http://www.welshponies.com/scotland.htm

        We are waiting VERY impatiently for his arrival!!!

          ooooh, Marmaduke is gorgeous! He looks like he will be a fine asset to the Welsh family of ponies here in the US. I'm tickled that he is coming from Scotland as well, a very "native" boy ;-)

          Oh my goodness, what an absolutely lovely set of photos from your trip, http://www.welshponies.com/scotland.htm I can't imagine how you didn't just stay there in the pasture with all those splendid ponies!

          Will you offer him at stud this Spring? What fun!

            Thank you!!!

            I really WANTED to stay in Scotland. I just couldn't convince my husband to move there with me. LOL That makes a slight problem, you know?

            Marmaduke will hit the show ring in 2010 and I plan to use him on two mares as test breedings this spring. He will likely be offered to a few outside mares in 2011, depending on how much I plan on using him myself!!

                  I am...it has been an eternity (in horse years) since we bred the mares and then had the little shaggies running on this mountain top and now they are all grown up, useful,pretty headed copies of their Daddy...

                  yeah...that's cool

                    I've got a new one

                    Rise'N'Shine Daydream Believr, 2004 red roan Section B stallion

                    He hasn't done much, but I'm going to put him undersaddle in the Spring (my arena is just too slick during the wet months of the year to really do any training). I'll definately be showing him in hand all year next year.

                    I do have some preliminary pictures, will get more once he sheds out. I will be cutting that hair before show season too LOL.

                    Anyways, I have high hopes for him. I think he will be a good compliment to my Solomon daughters My hope is to show him in Dressage myself, then have him shown in hunters perhaps in 2011. He's about 13.2 hands. I am looking for a special, highly qualified mare to receive one free breeding in 2010 to get some offspring on the ground

                    Pedigree is here:

                    We are working on a new website, should be done within a couple of weeks, I haven't bothered to put him on my current on as we're having so many alignment issues with it. Anyways, his stud fee will be an introductory $400. Hoping to just get some offspring on the ground for him. He had a couple foals before I bought him, but unfortunatly, the pictures don't show much If anybody is interested, please PM or email me.

                    Of course we'll be standing my Section A at stud again, he is an impressive cross on horse mares. I have a wonderful filly out of an Arab mare by him who will be a yearling, and also showing extensivly in hand in 2010.

                      I think most people on the board are familiar with mine, but will post anways. We purchased Penrhyn Sporting Chance so late in the breeding season this year that it made it tough to start out in 2009. Previous to that, everyone basically thought he was either deceased or had fallen off of the face of the earth! We resurrected his name and got him back out in the limelight again. He's currently listed as #10 on the USEF Leading Pony Hunter Sire List and his daughter Misty Blue Paris tied for second over fences at Pony Finals this year. His other daughter, Monroe, was the USEF National Grand Green Pony Hunter Champion for 2008. He also still holds the record for siring the Highest Selling Pony at the Hunter Pony Finals Auction at $75,000 US.

                      We hope to get some good photos of him in the spring, as he had a rough start with us this year! Below are a few of his babies.

                        The star of the farm, and the sweetheart of the barn is Section D Welsh Cob stallion Goldhills Brandysnap. He's a three-time US National Champion, eight-time Canadian National Champion (not including his National Championships from this year ) and has won many hunter and dressage Championships since he's been up here....along with Western Pleasure, Trail, etc. We just love him and couldn't wish for anything more in a stallion. We did not offer him for breeding in 2008, and only bred him to a select few mares this year - but hope to open his book up for 2010. (photos below)

                        And of course, we still have our faithful Section B stallion Alvesta Picasso who sired the Northwest Sporthorse Classic Two Year Old Pony Hunter Breeding Champion and his son looks like he will be winning one National Welsh and three Reserve National Welsh titles this year in Canada.

                            There were two New Forest Sport Ponies approved and licensed with the ISR/Oldenburg Registry this summer. The one we bred named Wasabi who is now owned by Irish Tulip Equestrian Center in MD and Farabovepar who is standing at stud in NY. Both these ponies are also approved and licensed with the New Forest Pony Society of NA. OR if you wanted to breed to their sires...Wicked Courtjester and Forrest Flame are readily available.

                            Here is a link to Farabovepar on horse daily

                              Might be a bit of a wait for new pictures! He left his home in September, then spent a month waiting to ship, then a month in Canada while dealing with all the quarantine and paperwork for him and the mare he travelled with..... and now a week on the trailer? I'm thinking not going to be very photo ready!!!

                              (Though I have no doubt that he got excellent care while in the Canadian quarantine, my past experience says that he's going to arrive rumpled and not looking his best!)

Marmaduke is the first foal of Wedderlie Mariota, Royal of Scotland Champion, and full sister to our *Wedderlie Mardi Gras.

                                  Marmaduke can be seen at http://www.welshponies.com/marmaduke.htm and the story of his purchase at http://www.welshponies.com/scotland.htm

                                  We are waiting VERY impatiently for his arrival!!!
                                  WOW! Lovely, definately has the look.

                                    yeah...that's cool

                                      but two homebred babies hitting the dressage ring under saddle in AZ with their owner Lisa Darling...for baby 3 coming 4 yos I think they are doing wonderful..

                                      Thanks for the plug and compliments, "T". Rode Merlin this AM and he's coming along like clockwork. He's gone on a few "big boy" trail rides and doing light arena work. Resolute is getting over a respiratory virus so I've just been riding him at a walk around the property. Both boys are doing well. I would take another Dambuster baby in a heartbeat. These two have been so easy to deal with and start. Plans currently are to take Merlin to do his first test (intro) at a schooling show in January. I will likely take Resolute for his first one in March/April. I'll also probably start collecting him in April/May with the idea of doing two test breedings. One to the section C mare I picked up today (yippee) and also to a friend's TB mare. So we'll keep you posted.

                                        thank you Dawn...I did make them pretty and useful, but LISA has made them spectacular...it's easy to ruin any horse no matter how well bred and cared previously ...

                                        and she should get all the credit there maybe one day she'll go pro....or something

                                        but 10years is young for an actual dressage sire I think...and so I guess he fits the "young" if not "up and coming" which I took to mean as showing actively
