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!

    Caleb is currently showing in dressage with Claire Darnell. He's qualified for the Region 9 Championships in the SWDC FOURTH LEVEL JR CHAMPIONSHIP, GREAT AM/USDF FOURTH LEVEL JR CHAMP, SWDC THIRD LEVEL JR CHAMPIONSHIP and GREAT AM/USDF THIRD LEVEL JR CHAMP. (sorry for the crazy capitals, I copied off showsecretary.com). Claire has done a terrific job with him.

    If I recall correctly, Le Cavalier was gelded.


    • #3
      And remember that Caleb's owner place got hit by a tornado not long after the 100DT! So, that set her back some.

      I own Puerto D'Azur, who was the 1998 champion of the 100DT. I was not the owner at the time of the testing, but I can tell you as of currently he is activly breeding and has offspring proving themself worthy in the rated shows. One which is going Advanced now in eventing.

      Our stallion was bred some and Bill Coester show him and trained him up to FEI, but went seperate ways with the old barn who owned him and then Puerto pretty much hung out (literally) and bred for the last 6 yrs. Sad to say, but true.

      I have had a lot of conversations with stallion owners and its a hell of a project to deal with. Im sure Ronda could add in here, but its not always fun. Money that is involved is mind boggling! Ads are enough alone to break you as well as promoting a stallion by showing, training, etc. So in short, I think after the 100DT we dont hear a lot from the SO's because after a while, the money just is not always there.

      I know many are happy with 5-10 breedings a year, just to offset their costs. They dont show or advertise heavy as that would up their overhead through the roof. So, I think that is why some "fall off the planet".........

      Plus, dealing with a stallion each and every day can be a love/hate relationship! Nothing like getting a call from a vet at 6am to tell me he needs a collection that day (time difference and vet got started at early am!) Ughgh! LOL

      This is Puerto as of two days ago - he is still going strong and very happy -

        Donnerstein broke a leg in a pasture accident and was treated but it was too bad of a break to fix and he was euthanized.


        • #5
          Masterpiece did the 30 day test. He is currently competing in dressage.


          • #6
            DiVinci, who won the 2002 test, is showing at Grand Prix dressage with scores in the 60's. He also has various offspring out showing - including a 2003 mare scoring in the 70's at Training Level with an AA rider.

              That is really sad. I remember seeing that horse at his Hanoverian foal inspection and thought it was great when he became an approved stallion. I'm sure his owner was devastated, since she had raised him.

                Le Cavalier was gelded and sold as an A hunter. Lots of frozen left and he is still activated with a lot of registries. I think his owner said it was way too expensive to campaign him

                  Is this a recent sale for Le Cavalier? I thought the last time I spoke with Emmett he had him back at home, this was before the Chestnut Lawn Farm inspection in Sept. I hope for his sake the gelding is sold!!

                    Bernie - I thought he was sold several years ago . Maybe I'm wrong or does Emmet have him back?

                      Ditto. I understood this happened several years ago as well.

                        I put Le Cavalier on my list as I was unsure about his status. USEF has results for him as a Junior Hunter from 2/2006 till 8/2006 and then nothing after that.
                        So he would have been gelded prior to 2/2006.
                        USEF's results show Emmett Turner as the owner.
                        Perhaps he was sold on or is showing under another name?

                          Presidio is owned by my Aunt, and as stated on her website he unfortunately sustained an injury during the 100 day test, so was unable to go to a competition career. He is still breeding, approved with the GOV, and has a stallion on the ground, Prescription, along with having many first premium foals with the GOV.

                          Here is a link to his site, http://www.canterbury-court.com/Presidio.html.

                            As I stated earlier, in my conversations with Emmett prior to our CLF inspection in mid Sept, he said he had Le Cavalier back at his farm. I know he was in training and showing but don't know if he was ever sold. Nevertheless, Emmett said he was home on the farm.

                                As far as I know, Spectrum is still at Silverwood Farm in Virginia. I don't know what his current show record is, though, the most current info on the website only goes through 2000. Maybe Liz Hall will see this thread and comment. http://www.silverwoodfarm.com/spectrum.html

                                    Does anyone know why he hasn't really done anything since the testing in 2004? He is SUCH an AMAZING stallion! I think we'd all give our right arm to own a horse like that! I'm just wondering why it seems he hasn't gone on to a show career? SOOOOOO much talant! Maybe she's worried he'll get injured?

                                        By the way, Watch Me, did not score well enough at the stallion testing to be approved by any of the warmblood registries. He was then sold and has gone through several hands since then.

                                        Applejack died, I believe.

                                        Amor Reto is still around in Batavia, OH, at http://legacyfarmltd.com/ where he is still making babies after an injury ended his dressage career.
