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.

  • And final one - who owns a DANISH WARMBLOOD?

    Sorry for this additional breed thread, but I'm truly curious to know who owns/rides a Danish Warmblood and what you are doing.

    I think they are a wonderful breed. I'm always lurking on the Danish WB for sale webpage (http://www.horse.dk/us/) and often I'm literally drooling over some of those beauties.

    Maybe, just maybe, my next horse might just be a danish. Allthough sadly not in the market for another horsie at present , so I'll just keep drooling over that webpage .

    I have a Danish gelding. He has jumper bloodlines with a lot of Westfalen and Dutch. His lineage means very little to me.... I just liked him when I saw him. I bought him as a 5 year old three years ago. We showed 2nd level last year (2007), third and fourth level this year (2008) and I hope to show him fourth and PSG in 2009. We have played with the twos and a few ones, some half steps and baby passage so we'll see where we end up. He has an awesome work ethic, never says no....a very well developed "go" button (yeehaw!), and is so sweet to work around. He wants to 'belong" to someone so he bonds very quickly to "his person". I am thrilled to have him.

    My trainer is Danish so we have lots of them in the barn. They are a wide variety of types. They are very interesting horses!

        Thx, Papony, he sounds wonderful and you seem to be getting very well with him.

        OH, Dray, that's very many!!

          I have a Rambo mare. She is small (15.2ish), dark bay and very, very pretty. Everyone drools over her and thinks I am lying when they ask me how tall she is. She and I do 3rd level and she is schooling 4th level with my trainer.

            May Wonder - I showed her through 4th and we were hoping to go PSG in the spring before an injury laid her up. She is by May Sherif with old Danish breeding on the mother line.

            May Cartier - my very best broodmare, she has produced one national champion here in the US, and two others for Finland. She is by Matador.

            Fadonna - six year old mare by Lobster, I hope to be showing her at first level this year.

            Flamenco - two year old daughter of above mare, by Onassis.

            May Czar - two year old gelding by MIchellino out of May Cartier.

            May Light - 15 year old gelding by Mid-West Ibi Light, shown thorugh 3rd, schooling most of the PSG.

            Willow - 4 year old mare by Michellino, just backed, but wonderful to work with!

            Whoops - 6 year old broodmare by Michellino, she was unfortunately injured in quarantine when she was imported so she has not been ridden, but she produces wonderful Danish babies, so I am happy with her.

            Waimea - yearling filly by Matador out of Whoops. She is a showstopper, and I can't wait to rider her!

            And last but not least, Caslon, by Come Back II, he is a 12 year old gelding. He has done mostly hunters but an injury ended that so he is now showing first level and hoping to show some 2nd this year with one of my students.

            I think that is all of them, we are expecting two more in the spring. Most of mine are quite close though the mother line, and I just love the temperament and talent that I am getting from them and their foals! I am so glad someone started the Danish thread!

              Nice video of Fadonna jumping. (peaked at your webpage )
              You must be one of the very few breeding DanishWB in the US, you're certainly the first one I've come across. Well done.

              Inca, I'm sure they drool over her, something about those horses. They will be top of my picking list when time is right for next hossie .

                I am a very proud owner of a filly by Diamond. An unbelievable stallion - old proven lines, with over 40 offspring at FEI levels in Jumping AND dressage.

                The filly's mom was a wonderful riding/show horse, multiple year end championships, fun, easy, SUPER smooth gaits.

                Filly qualified for USDF in hand first time out (straight from the field). She is the WHOLE package - great movement, FLASHY, sweet, ... I could gush about her on and on. One more year and then we get to go for a ride. So hard to wait.

                I get to break out her brother this year. He is great too - in all meanings of the word (going to be 17.1+ but is a golden in his mind). I wish I could keep him too, but he is going to be too big for me and I prefer girls
                Horses should be trained in such a way that they not only love their riders, but look forward to the time they are with them.

                  Don't own him myself, but I ride one regularly. His name is Simon and we show him under Game Boy. He's quirky and looks like an overgrown welsh pony. He is a real treat to ride, just don't try to bully him else you might find yourself on the ground faster than you can say 'Oops!'

                    I have a Danish mare, she's been shown through PSG (qualified for Devon), schooled to I1 and I've shown her 3rd level. She's coming 16. She has a great work ethic, is so sweet and smart, and has taught me so much in the 2 years we've been together. Also forced me to take up pilates so i could actually ride her!

                    She had a foal when she was young and is branded Elite. Two crowns = princess sometimes but that's ok, she deserves it. She was imported from Denmark about 4 1/2 years ago by her previous owner.

                    Like a lot of Danish horses she is chestnut with the 4 white socks. I don't know if that coloring is typical of certain bloodlines. She is also a big mover for a smaller horse (16H), big walk, very active hind leg (see note about Pilates), huge trot and she LOVES to do her flying changes. She is by Churchill out of Elmegaardens Larissa, but I have to say I don't know anything about either of them.

                      Thanks! We are quite proud of the horses we are producing, and they all seem to be well loved by new owners. We are not, however, the only Danish breeders here in the US. Dray, above, also breeds danish horses, as well as Oak Hill Farm in Folsom, LA, the owners of Diamond in Chicago, and many, many others. We are still a relatively small breeding assoc in the US, but we are growing every day! For more info on Danish horses in the US you can check out www.danishwarmblood.org the site for the North American Danish Warmblood Assoc (NADWA). I am happy to see that others also appreciate this breeding.

                      Inca, I also have a small Danish horse. May Light is only 15.1 but he was ridden by a 6' young rider and everyone thought he was much bigger. They just carry themselves that way! We always said he rides the size of his ego, maybe your mare is the same? :-)

                        I own a Solos Landtinus gelding that I love! He is easy going and very trainable. I have owned and ridden many horses and he is by far the best! He has a wonderful attitude and is always willing.

                          Rambo baby here

                          Oh my gosh, these are very talented horses. We have one from Oak Hill Ranch. He won everything until he got injured. We're hoping to start again this year. The quality and personality is outstanding.

                            I have a Danish mare, Chiquita Thais. She is a mountian of a mare - over 17.1. Very athletic with a fabulous temperament.

                              We breed them. I will probably breed three this coming year.

                                We own one! But he is a hunter/equitation horse. He is by Heslegaard's Starlight (by Lucky Light) out of a Dynamo (Don Carlos) mare. We imported him in 2003. He is the most honest and kind horse you will find.


                                We imported another in 2006 as a jumper, but sold him because he was too slow and laid back. He is by Limbus (Landgraf) out of a mare by Lucky Light. He was a big boy at 17.0hh on his 3rd birthday. Also another kind and honest soul, one who loved my DD and would nip any human male who flirted with her. He also lunged at a hissing gator on the horse trails at WEF while my DD was riding him! Nothing bothered this sweet boy. He is a real character.


                                I love Danish wbs. The one's I have met have been just really nice horses.

                                  genevieveg17, she's lovely.

                                  There seem to be quite a few biggies in the DanWB's really.
                                  That's probably also why I'm so taken by them, I like the idea of sitting up high .

                                    Two Danes

                                    Here are pics of my two. The bay is an Alexandre baby. He's now 32. The liver chestnut is 14. He has done PSG and was regional champion a few years ago at 4th. They are both darling. I rode the liver chestnut today and he was great.

                                    My older fellow still does high school tricks at the gate. He was offering a piaffe and a levade this afternoon when I was slow bringing him in. I'm not sure where he was trained but I have owned him since he was 15.

                                      We have a May Sherif daughter, Jirtuose. She is registered with the KWPN, but she is all Danish breeding on the top side. She could have been inspected Danish, but she was imported as a yearling to Canada and was never presented. She was a solid 4th level horse (showing) and schooling much higher. She was retired to breeding this year at age 17, sound, sane and stunning. I have to say that I'm on the May Sherif band wagon, our mare is a fantastic mover....
