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.

  • Eventing breeding

    Standings after XC, just 10 points separate these top 15 horses.

    1 - Holst ------ TB - Holst x Holst
    2 - Hann ------ TB - Hann x TB
    3 - ISH ------ ISH - ?? ---- (bred in Aus)
    4 - ISH ------ Holst - ISH x TB
    5 - ISH ------ ISH - ISH xTB
    6 - ISH ------ Holst - ISH x TB
    7 - SF ------ SF - SF x SF (sireline is Trak, sire's sire was Abdullah)
    8 - Hann ------ TB - Hann x TB
    9 - Swiss WB ------ BWP - AA x AA (Sire's side is heavy AA also)
    10 - TB ------ TB - TB x TB
    11 - BSH ------ BSH - TB x TB
    12 - ISH ------ ISH - ISH x TB
    13 - Aus SH ------
    14 - ISH ------ ISH - ISH x RID
    15 - ISH ------ ISH - ISH x TB

    Seven of the top 15 are ISHs. But what's interesting is that none of them is by a TB stallion, two are by the Holsteiner, Cavalier Royale and the rest are by ISH stallions.
    In fact the only other horses sired by a TB (besides Miner's Frolic who is a TB himself) are the 3 German bred horses! In fact the German's may have the most "blood" horses in the mix.
    Is that counterintuitive of what?

      NOT all the rest are by ISH stallions and Im sure that you will find this even more counterintuitive...

      Ringwould Jaguar (Aussie rider Sonja Johnsons- AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE OI OI OI!!!) is an Australian Stock Horse and he is by Jensen's man (Quarter horse) out of Nations of Lili (TB)... now explain that one!

        I was thinking that after this Olympics, the Irish Sport Horst is going to go up in price....

        Warmblood types are also making their name in the Eventing world. Either upper level riders are using less thoroughbreds or thoroughbreds just aren't as competitive.

          I am pretty sure he meant "all the rest of the 7 listed as ISH are by ISH stallions".
          Not "all the rest of the 15 top placed horses".

            It's counter intuitive for the fact that the ISHs that have traditionally dominated in eventing down through the years have invariably been by TB stallions out of ISH mares.
            Also the Germans have often been beaten with a big stick on these forums by the anti-WB crew for supposedly having the format changed to suit their "less blood" horses, yet they have the highest blood horses. The two Butts breed horses on the German team are 90%+ TB blood.

            Btw, who reassigned my gender?

                why counter intuitive, Germany has always known the value of TBs:

                top horse so far is Maruis, sire is CONDRIEU XX
                http://results.beijing2008.cn/WRM/EN.../H000121.shtml

                Abraxxas is in second place and is by another TB sire, this time HERALDIK XX
                http://results.beijing2008.cn/WRM/EN.../H000119.shtml


                What's counter-intituive is the thoroughbreds are not listed as such,
                full thoroughbreds are not recognized:

                TB Poggio II is "unknown:"
                http://results.beijing2008.cn/WRM/EN.../H000075.shtml

                TB Madison Park is "unknown:"
                http://results.beijing2008.cn/WRM/EN.../H000138.shtml

                TB Courageous Comet is "unknown:"
                http://results.beijing2008.cn/WRM/EN.../H000080.shtml

                not only missing that they're full TBs, but not even crediting the sire with XX so the sire line is recognized as of value.

                  I'm still working on who reassigned the TB parentage and took them off the history books as full blooded TBs.

                  Makes you wonder how many ISH have TB sires that are simply not listed with XX. Or how many are full blood TBs genetically but never registered with a TB registry, but registered with ISH, or another, instead.

                  Yup, the books kept are a bit odd...

                    The ISH has always been up in price, they are unbeleiveable event horses.

                        Word on the street, last year in Ireland was that the RID had gone up a bit in price, no doubt the ISH will as well - glad I got mine a few years ago !

                            Canadian version here - Anybody else felt that the commentary on cross country was lacking. Seemed to me that it was geared to about "C" level Pony Club, and - in Canada anyway - it would have been nice to have a x-country specialist commentating. We were dying to know the bloodlines of the hores and more about their careers, and the riders. Seemed that the research had not been done and there were only stats on the course which they could read. Hope I'm nt coming over as a real grump here, but I would think that tv viewers would be interested instead of the obvious being commented on. I could name a few commentators who would have been perfect, starting with Denny?? He always has opinions

                              Which of the ISHs in particular are you wondering about? They all have registered pedigrees. Which ones are you questioning their parentage?

                                of course they all have registered pedigrees. But ISH is an open registry that accepts pure TBs.

                                "The Irish Sport Horse is recognized by the Irish Horse Board, as an animal of ANY breeding... For example, an ArabxTB, TBxConnemara, Pure TB or RIDxTB may all be classified as an Irish Sport Horse. But in North America, only the cross with RID blood is classified as an Irish Draught Sport Horse." http://www.irishdraught.com/aboutsh/

                                And here's the ISH rulebook http://www.irishsporthorse.com/_file...b80b27c71e.pdf

                                  I'm well aware of what a ISH is, trust me.
                                  You intimated that some of those horses were actually by TB sires, not ISH sires, but registered as ISHs. Which ones were you talking about? Name them.

                                  Or maybe you're just blowing a lot of hot air.

                                    Where did you find the breeding of the horses?

                                    An earlier post made a comment about the Canadian commentators being a C-Pony club-ish - here in US on Oxygen, Melanie Smith (forgot last name) who is usually quite good was slightly out of her element w/ doinng the Cross Country

                                    The criteria for being an ISH in the Irish book is a bit more complicated than just being any animal of any breeding - those animals must be approved based on certain criteria and have competed to a certain level etc etc. Which is why I'm sure SM posted the link to the ISH rulebook

                                        With your question to me, are you referring to my post 9? Maybe you should go back and read it for comprehension.

                                        Once again, referring to my post 16, a full TB can be accepted and registered as an ISH. It's not mutually exclusive to be an ISH and to be 100% TB.

                                        You seem fixated on your 7 specific horses, I was not. Out of curiosity, what TB percentage do you think each of the top ISHs (off your list here, by your count 7 horses) have?
