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.

  • Ofsprings of Gauguin de Lully

    Sorry, I'm ignorant about dressage lines. I just got a 6 yo mare from Hector, son of Gauguin de Lully (Swedish Warmblood).
    Mother line of this mare I do know well, but I have no connections in dressage to ask about this Hector. Gauguin de Lully is quite good sire how I understood, but how are his children? What he is passing over? I see that quite a lot of his babies are in US, so maybe you can tell me a bit?

    There's one Canadian son of Gauguin de Lully I've heard of - can't remember his name - that was doing FEI levels with an Ammy. Gauguin de Lully's owner originally restricted his breeding quite a bit - mostly to his own mares, so he didn't get a lot of outside, fancy mares to breed, so there aren't that many of his offspring and I haven't heard much of them. Of course, like Secretariat, for all I know he may be a better broodmare sire than a direct sire and there may be some nice horses that are his descendants that you just don't hear about unless you're deep into pedigree research.

      There was a stallion at the farm I work at by Gauguin de Lully, named Galiani CH. He is now deceased, but he was one of the most phenomenal horses I have ever known. His get all have FAB personalities, and are some the easiest horses I have ever worked with. If you want some more info, PM me, and I'll give you what I can.

          Here's a stallion by Gaugin du Lully:


          I don't recognize the stallion Hector, maybe he's standing in a registery other than swedish? He's not on the Swed WB Association of N. America's list of stallions.

            Horses by Gauguin de Lully

            Gauguin de Lully didn't start breeding until AFTER he finished his international competition career and he died 5 - 6 years later so didn't leave behind that many offspring. Heather Robertson had a son (Maguin) that she competed to GP in Europe. Mr. G. De Lully (recently deceased) was a successful international dressage competitor ridden by Fiona Bigwood (England).

            My stallion (the grey one from the above-post)

            is both a successful dressage competitor and a fabulous jumper. His offspring inherit the gaits and the jump.

            I bred with frozen semen after GdL died. Little known is the fact that GdL was the Swiss Preliminary Event champion at age 6 with his amateur owner BEFORE he embarked on his dressage career. GdL sired horses tend to be very athletic and tend to be very sweet. They have a reputation for having terrific bucks (ages 4-6) as well, but that is because they are so athletic, not because they are mean.

            I've never heard of Hector either. Is he approved in any registry?

              Hector info is here

              But here are more his offsprings on the world, not just one.

              Our green mare... we tried her out carefully to see how she is... Must to say that somebody already had trained her for Dressage and trained well. Our problem is - to find a Dressage rider for her as my husband is... ok, please no comments about his seat or anything. He is very sweet and gentle with horses, good for mistreated rescues, but not a good rider at all - after we started accidentally rescue, he went to trainer last September to learn a bit and so far he still is "a bit" - he can jump and likes it, but dressage is dark side of the moon for him.


              Here are her pictures from today - first few when we lunged her a bit to see if she shows any problems (limping or something but we did not spotted anything), and the rest later when Peter carefully mounted her to see how green she is. When she made 2 pirouettes, Peter jumped off and said that he can not ride her as he has no idea what he is doing. He does not want mess her up.

                Hector, son of GdL

                Anna: Do you have papers on this horse? If so, who issued them? From the link to the BLUP index/ASVH horse information, Hector is not an approved ASVH (SWB) stallion. It does appear he competed to FEI in dressage. The mare looks nice. I also like Hector's dam line - good dressage producing horses there.

                I like the photos of the horse. Looks like she inherited the great hind quarters that gave GdL his gaits and strength.

                Please keep me informed as to how you do with this lovely horse.

                Best Wishes.

                  Papers are issued by our gov register. I do not know details, but Hector was here, in my country, had been ridden by one Dressage rider for a while and had been bred to several mares. So he was approved for breeding here then.

                  I tried to video her gaits today but no success with my camera - gaits are just beautiful! Even in this condition... We had not pushed her hard, less than 10 min lunging and less than 10 min riding under saddle later, but when she started trot with my husband, it was like bally dancer performance!

                  And you know, for me she somehow looks a bit happier already today.

                  Now I'm tracing down her previous owners just to find out who trained her, how far it was done and is there any accidents/injuries/illnesses in her past.

                    Anna Crew, I'm glad you are here!


                    I am a fan of yours from the off course threads. PLEASE, PLEASE feel welcome and post here, too. You have brought so much to us in your careful study of horses and their behavior. I love that you are so creative in training from observation and empathy. I know no one else who has a knack for training a horse to be a good dining room guest or the language skills.

                    You have found extraordinary horses and brought them back to more than health. They glow with happiness. I am sure this new one looks much better all ready. It seems to take about 24 hours for the other horses to welcome in the new one. Your photos show the change in expression.

                    We learn from you and your love for animals. It keeps us true to the reason that we wanted to be with horses. I hope that you will consider using your CotH writing as a basis for a book series. You are an extraordinary writer.

                    You have made Latvia a place we want to come and visit to see you!

                      Thank you Whicker - I'm blushing now, and feel already guilty for posting on Dressage thread - this is not my place, for sure, as I'm complete beginner, and sadly Dressage has not been on my agenda at all. Honestly - I needed to watch human parody of Isabel W to get the idea of basic Dressage elements. Shame on me! So sorry spamming here but I felt that this new rescue girl needs specific help and that she is worth it.

                      I'm so confused now - traced breeder and breeder revealed info - she had been sold as weanling 6 y ago and since then had been hanging around in stable X all these years, in pastures, doing nothing - no basic riding, no Dressage, not even breeding. Plain nothing and pastures. Maybe her genes is so strong? I do not know what to think now. She really had only a Gypsy boy who put her under saddle (and he has no idea about Dressage, I know that).

                      PS. As I pointed before, seriously, COTHers are welcome! Not all of you at once, but about 4 at once If you are going to Europe, it is not a big dog leg to my small corner

                        Excellent looks Effortless

                        You DO know more than you realize. Just like watching Baryshikov dance, you don't have to know the technical side of ballet to feel the power of illusion of effortless excellence. It is the art that sings to the soul. When you see a horse do what you see, it has the feel of the art. That Peter can have 2 pirouettes is extraordinary. I think he has great balance and feel. Please tell him that for me! You have the eye for tuning to animals. That is a gift, too.

                        The training and the education all help with learning the technical that underpin the development, but the eye and the feel and empathy are gifts that are born with you.

                        You do research enormously and you choose well. There is much you do from the ground that uses creativity. If you can watch the spanish riding school train, I think you will see what I mean.

                        Please, stay with us and ask questions. We will do our best to help you learn more. You can always pm me.

                            Actually, the girl really looks better already - she visibly looks like she had put some weight on her. And she is not having that roached back anymore when she stands.

                            When we realized what a gem we have, we put her in separate paddock with our yearling Sapphire for a company - Sapphire is gentle and quite submissive, from very sad past and health conditions so we decided that they will be the best suited and also safest pair together in the paddock. Lilly is quite timid (at least so far) so being with little timid Sapphire nobody will bully her around and risk of accidents now is much lower.

                            Lilly is smart and very human orientated. I was brushing her this morning for nearly an hour, and also this afternoon. She just loves it. (And I love it too, BTW ).

                            Peter in turn had a bit of a training session with her. He was teaching WHOA to her. Without a lead, just walking along. And you know - she learned it in 5 minutes - walk along, Peter says whoa and she instantly stops, she gets praised and cuddled, then again... After 5 minutes voice was not needed anymore. Peter walks, she walks head to his shoulder, he stops, she instantly stops... It is not a serious training, just a light useful game to keep her company, some exercise and something to think about.

                            In the same way they both were walking over trotting poles and she was happy - no fear at all. We do not use lead in field with her, so she does it voluntary - just call her and ask to follow. According to the fact that she spent 6 years in pastures with minimal human contact, very, very good reactions - a credit as she is in a new place, new herd, a lot of new things around (we play with her in our homemade jumping arena with different weird constructions and colors around).

                            I promise some pictures tomorrow if it will be not raining.

                              Here is a link to "Goya de Lully", a son of GdL who stood in Canada. He competed to Prix St. Georges I believe. This might be who SandyM was thinking of:

                              I have ridden a GdL son (gelding), and he was so fun to ride. A bit of a quirky personality, very athletic and responsive!

                                  So far Lilly is doing great - she is putting weight on, looks happy and plays with other horses.

                                  I like digging and tracing info until I know as much as possible about past of my horses. And Lilly is an interesting challenge.

                                        Just an update. In December Lilly had colicked. Good job that the vet was just 7 minutes away. It was a huge colon impaction. Vet suggested that probably it was building up since summer thus making her stand like she was in September.

                                        It was a 5 day battle for her but now I can say with great relief that it was her only problem. Now she stands as a normal horse, runs as a normal horse, she even rears at pastures when playing and all in all she feels great.

                                        Trainer was here to look at her and in February she will go to trainer to see what can be done with her. Currently she just need to get back into condition which is not so easy at -20 c temps but she is working hard on it

                                        This video is poor, it was dark and snowing, but you can see her happy running at the beginning (She is the second one after the turn , first is red mare Giva, the third - little fat Inka).
