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!

    Mine's from a TB/Perch mare and a TB stallion. Mine was from cancade. I have a riding buddy who has one from a Paint/Perch mare and a TB stallion from a farm in Manitoba. Both nice horses.

      I have a PMU gelding out of Alberta, 11 yrs old, but his breeding is unknown. He's pinto, very quarter horsey build, but has a clunky draft head and some TB withers. Who knows...


      He's only 15.2, but a little thick through the legs, neck and head, some maybe a bit of draft in there.

        Just got off the phone with Lloyd Cancade, who has to be one of the kindest people I've ever "met" without meeting. He took the time to look up my horse, and so much more. I am ever grateful. I found out all sorts of wonderful things that I didn't know, including that my beloved horsie has a full sister.

        Normandy, your horse is very nice! He does look (in my limited knowledge!) like he has some draft as well. There was a great paint stallion at Cancade Farms - Magnum was his name I think, and he sired horses with my horse's dam - but I don't know anything about the Alberta farms. Terasa, how old is yours? Mine's sire is Proven Jade; do you know yours?

        If I ever win the lottery, I'm going to snatch up a whole bunch of these horses...I know they're out there...and start a fun riding barn...different disciplines...I'm going to call it "Therapy" or "A Doctor's Appointment." Then when someone leaves work for an "appointment," they won't be lying . And anyone who is mean to anyone else or is full of drama gets the boot.

        Anyway, I've found all sorts of interesting things online...it seems like many of these horses are the perfect amateur-friendly horses. Kind, willing, energetic, good mover, as safe as a horse can ever be, etc. I know I'm thrilled with my boy, and it is so much fun to learn more about him than I ever dreamed I'd know. He has been loved by some pretty cool ladies.

          I had one from Hiatt farm. Best horse I ever backed. 1/4 QH, 1/4 Perch, 1/2 Tb. I currently own one that I suspect might have been from one of those farms, but am unsure as to his history. He is marvelous, though more drafty.

          I wish people were purpose breeding them still, because really the mind of a good crossbred is like nothing I've ever experienced. The one from Hiatt is now Foxhunting in NY as a staff horse.


          • Original Poster

            That's the exact breeding of mine! He is a dream. Have you checked your current horse's microchip? You can find out everything through that...

            My trainer says the same thing about my horse's mind.

              Where are you guys purchasing your PMU horses? I have a friend that is soon to retire her 20 year old QH. She is a trail and leisure rider and these horses sound perfect for her.

                This farm starts our youngstock and she has a variety of draft X. She is lax about keeping her website current, so if you are in this area, best to contact her about what she has

                  Mine came from BenBar Farm in Indiana (where I used to live) but I'm not sure she's doing this anymore. I know her website isn't current and the number I have for her is disconnected.

                  My current horse was purchased from a friend, and she got him from some older lady (which is all I know about his history). I'll have to have him scanned to see if he has a chip.

                  I really liked Dundalk, and of course, even though RIDs and Irish Sporthorses aren't quite the same, I LOVE your hoses too horsetales. Many of them tend to have very similar temperaments. I'd fill my barn with them if I could!

                    Cancade mare coming 5 by TB Get Me Out. My mare, Sterling Exodus is out of Carrie, percheron cross mare sired by Proven Jade. Lots of ground Work, backed, saddled, carries bit. Grey, 16.0 or so. Really nice mind and she floats!

                        Blume Farm, I bought mine from a H/J barn, knowing nothing about his background as the trainers involved didn't want me to know his history. But if I am ever in the market for a new horse, I'd love to clone mine.

                          My mare is a PMU but not sure what farm she came from, I know she was from Manitoba though. She is a QH x Anglo-arab, can be a bit nutty and very sensitive, but she's super smart and I love her to bits!


                          • #14
                            My PMU baby came from Alder Flats, Alberta. Was bought at auction as a weanling, was started as a 3 year old and I got her when she was almost 4. She's now 10! Dad was a TB "Gun Runner," mom was a Belgian/QH. My mare is lovely, looks like an old-style warmblood. I love the draft crosses, I'll definitly get another one when the time comes. I just love my mare!! I've tried to find more info on her, I don't have a name for her mom, just a number, and I haven't had much luck in finding anything about her dad either.

                              This is the list of NAERIC ranches. Some are draft but some have QH types.


                              This farm:

                              in particular is worth a look if you are looking for a sport horse. They do the WB/TB/Draft cross and have produced some nice horses. A few friends of mine have bought babies here. They are very well priced.

                              One benefit of buying a pmu baby is NAERIC's prize money incentive program

                              A friend of mine has a jumper that does her share of winning and she gets a very nice cheque from NAERIC every year.

                                Red Rock Hunt located north of Reno, NV has over the years imported a lot of PMU's with the breeding lines you listed out. They used to go up each year and bring back a dozen or so yearlings and once they were old enough, break them and sell them. I don't know if w/the decline in the economy if they continue that practice today. The horses were suitable for the hunt's needs - sturdy, large, and fairly comfortable gaits which was nice for the lower level hunt riders.

                                  Yes, Get Me Out was one of their TB studs. I don't have his pedigree with me at the moment. Carrie's dam is a Percheron cross, so I''m thinking my girl is 7/8 TB, 1/8 Percheron???

                                    My pmu horse is from early dawn sport horses
                                    I got her from a broker I worked for, he got a huge lot of pmu mares and some babies
                                    Her sire is a tb, Alypolo's Diamond, and dame is a Perch, no name only a number.
                                    She's chiped and I have her papers
                                    Love my girl, she's smart, too smart, has a mile long stubborn streak and I wouldn't trade her for anything!

                                      I had a Magnum baby... she is a jumper... jumped a 5ft gate on occasion lol... not intentionally by us though! and is currently hunting locally, but did well eventing and in the hunter ring. My friends bought 2 by Get Me Out and the one I really liked. In hindsight I wished I had bought one of his babies instead of Magnums...

                                      I wish Cancade was still breeding. I would buy another from them in a heartbeat. Do they even have any horses left???

                                        Tuesday, I'm glad you're nuts over yours as well!

                                        DQ - is yours a sorrel? I've done a little bit of research with the information you gave...

                                        Mozart - nice horses in that link. I wish I could snap up a few more.

                                        Snow Horse - Red Rock Hunt bought many horses from the Cancades. In fact, they bought my horse's sister . I've heard great things about them and think they still have some there.

                                        Kingfilly - our babies are related .

                                        Danier - is Early Dawn still breeding? I don't see them on the list anymore, and their website is either down or disabled. Another happy perch/TB owner!

                                        Knightrider - Was Magnum's baby a paint also? Cancade isn't breeding, and doesn't have any horses left. I think that there are still some of his mares at another farm in Canada, and I think that possibly Red Rock has some as well, but that isn't confirmed.
