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!

    CALLING ALL KWPN-NA Breeders, Riders, Trainers, Owners!

    Not sure if you're coming?

    Read on for more info we hope will grab you!

    Just $200. After today (26th) add an extra $50

    Friday - DRESSAGE DAY


    The 2010 KWPN Stallion Show Championship Ring saw five dressage stallions brought together for a final review and Champion designee. How did these five work their way to the top of the dressage group?

    The 2010 KWPN Stallion Show Championship Ring saw five jumper stallions brought together for a final review and Champion designee. How did these five work their way to the top of the jumper group?

    Ari Hamoen THE HEAD OF THE STALLION SELECTION COMMITEE will share with you the videos, observations and reasons for the Committee's selection. This is his first trip ever to NA....and, breeders/owners/riders, he is presenting just for YOU!

    1600 young stallions were previewed in November. Mr. Hamoen will instruct and enlighten you on the multi-viewing process the KWPN Stallion Committee used to arrive at their conclusions which sent these 10 young stallions to their respective championship rings in February.

    These selected stallions will shape the next generation of KWPN horses. Can you breeders afford to miss this?! Can you afford to miss learning the genetic appraisal notes on individuals throughout each pedigree - the unique qualities each can contribute to your future foals!

    This opportunity can NOT be found in any magazine or on any web-site. This is happening only at the KWPN-NA Annual Meeting!

    But wait!, That's not all!!

    Bart Henstra, the KWPN-NA's Jury member from Holland, is bringing for us -IN ENGLISH! (novel idea, that!) the charts of breeding traits the approved stallions are contributing to their offspring (gathered and collated from the linear scoresheets of all inspected offspring) This is like getting the Key to the City of Breeding Heaven. Bart will take us through the charts, show how to read and use them in our breeding - and (not to be overlooked) training - programs. Bart also will enlighten us on the work being done on testing/evaluating for temperament in a breeding program. Can you afford to miss this???

    .....and there's MORE!

    Dr. Deborah Harrison will bring us all up to date on the very latest from the American Association of Equine Practioners, with a special focus on breeding news.

    Johan Knaap, Director of the KWPN will give an overview of the past year and the future of the KWPN and its members and horses. Note: We're all a part of THAT review and planning. Learn the focus of the future of our organizations.

    Irene Wolfs, KWPN Marketing, Public Relations and Foreign Department Coordinator will tell, with good humor and great English, the accomplishments and goals for ALL of us about the marketing of our Dutch Horses worldwide.

    If that were not enough to entice you,,,the afternoon brings super dressage horses at Michael Barrisone's farm. Michael (USA reserve rider for the Hong Kong Olympics) will conduct a 'dressage lesson' with a current Grand Prix winning Licensed KWPN-NA stallion!

    (Lastly, don't forget to make the dinner and silent auction Saturday night where a chance at lessons from Steffan Peters, Debbie Macdonald, Leslie Reid and Willy Arts will be items for bidding, as well as stallion breedings, and a dressage arena just to name a few.)

    NO WAY, can you miss this!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Saturday - JUMPER DAY


    First - read the first paragraphs in the Dressage section. - THEN -back to this one.

    Paul Hendriks. "Who?", you may ask.

    For some in North America, this name is unknown. Come join the 'knowing'. Paul and his brother, Emile, are of the European acclaimed "Hendriks" family, well-known for their riding, training, and breeding accomplishments. Brother Emile - European & World Championships plus Olympic Games and FEI Jumping Committee. Brother Paul, business-end of Stal Hendrix as well as breeder, and member of Board of Directors of KWPN. Mr. Hendriks attends shows, large and small, selecting horses for pairing with riders worldwide. As a breeder, his horses have been 'under the saddles' of Laura Kraut, Ian Millar, Jessica Kurten, Markus Fuchs to name a few.

    So - what is he going to share with you? Merely, how to select quality breeding stock to produce a grand prix jumper! The schedule followed preparing a young stallion for the Hengstenkeuring (the KWPN Stallion Selection Show) - to include training, feeding, preparation methods. Overall training of young jumping horses...and from his tremendous experience at Stal Hendrix - how to market those youngsters. Oh,,,,in case THAT isn't enough,,,training and evaluating a young horse in the free-jumping chute.

    Regardless of your breeding disciplines - Can you afford to miss all that????

    Need more from Paul Hendrix and his expertise? Bring your sunscreen and hats. Paul and Bart Henstra will conduct an 'up close and personal workshop on evaluating free jumping plus under saddle work. This segment will be held at the farm of Julis Harrison-Lee and will feature top jumpoing horses and a world-famous rider.

    Saturday night is the banquet with the Silent Auction mentioned above. (Add to those items: stays in guest cottages - one east coast, one west coast, a set of radiographs for the elite predicate!!!, horse tack , logoed clothing, jewelry, pottery, and more! Shine up those checks and credit cards!


    For those who can stay an extra day, Laura Kraut, Olympic gold medalist, will give us a course-walk on the the course of the $75,000 Grand Prix at the FTI Winter Equestrian Festival. In addition, Paul Hendrix will give live commentary about the horses and jumping styles/abilities during the grand prix.

    ALLL THIS FOR ONLY $200! Once again go to Go to:



    Still can't make it??? We'd love to know the whys and wherefores...so we can better accommodate you next time.

    Drop a note to the member's committee at: MC@kwpn-na.org

    Sample answers?
    "It's the economy, stupid."
    "Too far for cheap flights."
    "Personal reasons."

    Wish I could go, but will be on foal watch. Maybe others are in the same boat? Perhaps we should think about moving up the date of this event so everyone is free to attend? Just a suggestion.....

      I just got the newsletter as well and was pleased to see that a picture of our Ahme was used :-) I can't wait, I'm returning from England just in time for the meeting with a photographer in tow!

        The Dressage part will definitely be fun- we are going to move all of our Dutch horses to Michael's for the day (I'm at the barn next door where there are five more Dutch horses)... Some pretty cool bloodlines will be represented and we will hang their names, pedigrees and ages from the stall fronts- including Gribaldi, Krack C, Rousseau, Farrington, Idocus, Inspekteur, Uniform, Jazz and more! Also a number of "jumper" bred superstars in Michael's barn- many coming from Voltaire lines.

        I'm really looking forward to the meeting- Olivier will be doing a demonstration- we'll do a lesson with Michael and I also know many of the other dutch horses will be being ridden during the time people are there!

          Airline ticket - check
          Hotel reservation - check
          Meeting sign-up - check
          . . . and most importantly, passport - check

          so barring weather complications with travel, I will be there.
          Mind you, I could have easily checked off a couple of reasons on the list in the letter of why I wouldn't (shouldn't) be attending. But this time of year, I really need a break.

          Judy, you and the others in Pa, NH, Va, and surrounding areas definitely need a break from winter!!

            It sounds so wonderful! Wish I could go, but winter - early spring is just not a good time for me to get away from the farm. Just too much of a chance of weather related problems that I have to solve.

                    Just a thought, I just found out that it is now possible to sing up on a per day basis. In the event that you can only make it to the Jumping day or the Dressage day, you don't have to sign up for the whole meeting.

                      That is a good option if you can't devote the entire weekend! The program sounds like it is going to be really educational. I wish I was in the area, I'm sure it will be a fun way to spend a day!
