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!

  • Pinto Horses

    After seeing some of the goregous 'pinto' warmbloods on another thread ... I was wondering how many people ever considered showing their Pintos in the PtHA organization?

    Since it is a color breed, they have opened it up to Minatures, Saddlebreds, Half Arabians, Gyspy Varners, Ponies, etc.

    We had our first Half Arabian Pinto this year and I can't wait to see what her owners do with her

    I like the APHA, but I've always heard how much fun everyone has at the Pinto World ... but didn't know if there was much of a local following ...

  • #2
    I would have loved to, but in NC there are no Pinto shows and no local charter/ club

    they look likes lots of fun and I have heard great things about them

      I wondered ... here in Kansas we have a strong APHA club, but the Pinto club isn't as active... but we're close enough to Tulsa many go to the World Show or the Color Congress in the fall.

      I've also wondered, since PtHA is a recognized partner of the NSBA if anyone had thought about taking advantage of their programs as well with their colored sporthorses.

        Ditto, we don't have one in GA either, but if they did I would show in it.

        Are you talking about TidyRabbit's pinto warmbloods? I got to meet her and the Stoney Ponies in person when they came to show at the GIHP and they are amazing!!

          I'm still new to this forum, so I'm not sure ..I just saw them on another thread and they were gorgeous!!

          I always feel like I'm stuck in limbo land ... as a breeder, I like the breed shows --but, I would really like to see more of the 'english/dressage' movement ... so I keep hoping more people will utilize some of the programs out there

          But, as was mentioned, it's hard to do without a strong local club ...

              I've thought about getting my pinto half-arab registered with the PtHA, but the local shows are mostly APHA horses. It's not really worth it to go be the only horse in in his divison.

              They do seem to have a decent mini turnout though.

              I just bought a nice pinto ASPCA/AMHR show mare in foal to a modern shetland, and since the mare is suspected to be homozygous tobiano I'll probably have 2 fancy pinto ponies to show next year.

              That might be worth getting pinto papers on the little ones.

                Yep, I think the mini's are thriving ... I know one customer who has a mini for her daughter to show in showmanship, etc. while she will be showing her 'regular' colt ... it makes a great way for the whole family to enjoy the show. Her daughter isn't intimidated by the size of the mini, and it helps her learn about taking care of horses at a young age ...

                We had our first half-arabian this year ... I'm not sure what her owners are going to do with her, but we do have a sporthorse group that has a strong Arabian presents...

                I think the PtHA has a lot of potential

                    If my horse had better conformation and was registered I would definitely consider it. We think he's NSH. but know for sure he's got some Arab in there. We think NSH because he moves like one.

                    Oh well! Local shows don't care about that really, and they are much cheaper! LOL

                      if your horse fits the color requirements and is not a draft or donkey cross they can get registred as a Pinto, having existing papers does not matter

                        When is it held? Is it in Oklahoma? Do they have jumper classes (not hunters)?


                        We have sort of kidded around about going sometime, but really I would love to go with the 3 great spotted ones.

                        Any links to info would be much appreciated.

                              winner."

                              That's fantastic that the rule book says "The Pinto" not "The horse".

                              Dressage too... hummm. I might have to look into this more seriously. Might be really fun!

                                The PtHA also has a Color Breed Congress in the fall that is a lot of fun and gaining a lot of support ..

                                http://www.pinto.org/congress/

                                And, PtHA horses can show at the NSBA World Show ... if they are liscensed -- can't remember if the stallion they are sired by has to be enrolled, or if there is a grandfather clause ... but here is a link to the NSBA Over Fences ...

                                  Lol since the fences don't exceed 34" I could actually compete against you! I can just imagine my short fat paint standing next to Aeros now!

                                  We'd have to handicap you somehow... Like you'd have to wear a blindfold and I get 5 seconds subtracted from my time... I think that would be fair

                                    Both of the trainers I work with train/show Arabians predominantly; I think PtHA is a great crossover for them. Lots of lovely pinto half-Arabs!

                                    I'm a bit annoyed at PtHA for creating an entirely new category called "Utility" that applies only to Gypsy and Vanner horses. Really? Suck up much? And their rules STILL say no draft blood... can't imagine where those chunky little horses got their chunk. I was so excited to see the Utility category as a way to go have a fun show with my pinto draft crosses... would it have killed them to make Utility open to any thick hairy useful hony LOL?

                                    As much as I shake my head over that, I still plan on getting my Paints registered Pinto, and offer a complementary Pinto registration to anyone who purchases one of my Paints.

                                      I don't know much about the Pinto Association since it is pretty much nonexistent in GA, but I agree that's an absurd rule! No draft crosses, but GVs are allowed?
