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.

  • birth registry has priority?

    Is there an international rule where, if a horse is entered into more then one registry, the birth registry should be the dominant registry on record?

  • #2
    I dont think it's a rule.. but IMO it makes the most sense. Horses are registered in 1 registry, and entered into the stud books of others. (some call in dual- or tri- registered, but oh well). So if i have an Arabian/QH cross palomino, and he's registered with the AHA (Arabian) association, then I'd put Registered Half-Arabian and entered in the Quarab, half-QH and palomino registries. Or for TB stallion who is approved (for sake of examble) I'd say JC registered, approved by Old NA, AHHA, and ATA (if he was in those).

    But that's just me how I'd do it personally.

      ...dominant registry on record
      What "record" are you referring to? And what breed?

      WBs are supposed to only hold registration papers from one registry, but breeding stock (mares and stallions) can also be approved for breeding by multiple registries. They are still known by their original breed, though. For instance, an Oldenburg mare approved for Hanoverian breeding will always be an Oldenburg.

        breed not important, I thought it was some overall rule. When USDF All Breeds needed members to declare a horse in one registry, instead of multiple registries as was the policy for a while (more registries, more awards), I thought it was in compliance to an international rule with the first registry being the dominant one. Not clear if this is correct.

        This would be horses not used for breeding.

        Oldenburg mare approved for Hanoverian breeding: would mare have two sets of papers (Oldenburg, Hanoverian) ? Or Oldenburg papers only with approval for Hanoverian registry breeding.

          Define "Oldenburg Mare".

            USDF told me a year or so ago that if a copy of the horse's registration papers are sent in with the USDF registration application, it will use the issuing organization for the All Breeds Declaration. I believe people sometimes select the wrong organization when registering online with USDF, and I assume there are instances where USDF doesn't catch this when it receives an actual copy of the papers, so the horse ends up with an All Breeds Declaration that doesn't match its birth registry. I don't know what would happen if someone asked to change the Declaration - would hope that USDF would require a copy of registration papers before making the change.

            Oldenburg mare approved for Hanoverian breeding: would mare have two sets of papers (Oldenburg, Hanoverian) ? Or Oldenburg papers only with approval for Hanoverian registry breeding.
            She should only have the original papers from her birth registry, usually stamped by the "approving" registry to show her approval date and marebook assignment. I believe there was a time when certain registries were - ahem - re-issuing papers when mares were approved into their registries, but I don't know if this practice is still going on.

              For the USDF Awards, sometimes people will intentionally choose a registry other than the birth registry if they feel they have a better chance for an award from the second (smaller) registry, or if the birth registry doesn't participate in the USDF Awards program.

                Good point, and yes, that has happened in the past. I was told USDF was tightening up those requirements though and folks now MUST use the birth registry for an All Breeds Declaration unless that registry does not participate in the USDF Awards program. Registries also have the right to "purge" a horse from their declared lists if the horse doesn't belong there.

                  A registered Oldenburg mare approved for breeding with the AHS or HV does not make the mare registered with the AHS or HV. Most warmbloods are not double registered--it's against most rules.

                      Yes, I said pretty much the same thing in my earlier posts.

                      What happens when you have a TB mare approved for Hanoverian breeding? Is she a TB or a Hanoverian?
                      As stated earlier, a horse's "breed" is determined by its registration papers, which are usually issued when the horse is a foal (hence these papers are often referred to as "foal papers"). So a mare holding TB registration papers will always be a TB, even if she is approved for Hanoverian breeding or Oldenburg breeding or Dutch WB breeding, etc. Horses don't change "breeds" or registries when they get approved for breeding by another registry. Their FOALS however can be registered with the approving registry, providing the foal's sire is also approved by that registry (or eligible for approval - different registries have different rules on this).

                        Ahh...

                        But you can have a horse with two Trakehner parents, who is *registered* Oldenburgh instead of Tk.

                        Or, a Zwiebruken who is *registered* AWS.

                        There's a difference between BREED registries and Verbands. Verbands were originally set up for regions in Germany/Europe. So it had much more to do with geography than "breed."

                        A horse who is a true BREED like QH, Connemara, Welsh, Arab, TB... could theoretically have two registered parents, but be presented/recorded/approved as something else entirely (i.e. AWS/R, RPSI, etc.)

                        While different Verbands have slightly different type preferences, there is so much crossing within them, they are NOT breeds.

                        Registration as we are used to it in the US is for 'purebred' or half-bred animals. Usually one parent must be a purebred.

                        The Verbands were tasked to RECORD any horse presented to them. RPSI still does! You can bring a Fjord or a grade horse, and you will get an RPSI "number." That has nothing to do with approveal for breeding etc., but it is a 'registration' of sorts. AWS also will 'record' all horses presented. That does NOT mean they are all "approved." There is much misunderstanding about this, and that is part of the angst of AWS vs. other registries.

                          Totally agree....about breed vs registry.

                          The other "closed" studbooks I'm aware of are TB, Arab, Trakehner, QH, Lusitano, PRE.....there are others.

                          So, for the purposes of a USDF All Breeds Award program, can the little Fjord compete as an RPSI if it has RPSI papers? (theoretical question)

                          Can a Tk compete as a Hanoverian (such as Abglanz,the famous Tk stallion that started the Hanoverian A line)

                          Would Abglanz compete as a Tk or Hano in USDF All Breeds Program?

                            This horse would be an Oldenburg. It may have pure Trakehner bloodlines, but if it holds Oldenburg foal registration papers, it is an Oldenburg.

                            So AWS is one of the registries that re-issues registration papers for horses "recorded" with them? Even if the horse holds foal registration papers from another registry? Even so, if the horse holds RPS or RPSI (Zweibrücken) FOAL REGISTRATION papers, it is a Zweibrücken - even if it is later "recorded" with AWS.

                              Not sure that RPSI would issue registration papers for a Fjord. Maybe one of the RPSI experts on this forum will chime in.

                              Abglanz would/should have competed as a TK, since he held Trakehner foal registration papers. He did not become a Hanoverian when he was approved for Hanoverian breeding - he remained a Trakehner for his full life because that is how he was registered as a foal.

                                TB always.

                                Breeding approval is entirely separate from breed registry.

                                Now, you can have a TBxOld foal registered Old (assuming both parents are approved Old), and also with PHR, but those are entirely separate worlds.

                                But you can't register the TBxOld foal, where both parents are approved Old and Hano for example, and ALSO register the foal Hano. Only 1 when it comes to the WB registries.

                                    As others have said, the "foal papers" are the horse's "breed". We raise Zweibrucken horses and their foal papers are Zweibrucken papers regardless of their parents foal papers. Because their parents are APPROVED for Zweibrucken breeding, their foals are Zweibrucken.

                                    And no a Fjord could not be a Zweibrucker. RPSI Approves (real) Warmbloods, TBs, Arabians and Shagyas. Yes, there are some odd-ball crosses and breeds RECORDED due to EU rules, but they are NOT approved.

                                      I agree, the horse's birth registry / initial registry determines the breed. However there is no limit to how many registries a horse can be "approved" or "recorded" with.

                                      sm, I wonder if what you are thinking of is the international UELN? (Universal Equine Life Number.) The birth registry / initial registry is the registry which issues the UELN, and a horse may only have one UELN.

                                      The UELN is nice in that it tells you the horse's birth country, breed registry, and also its individual registration number (which usually incorporates the year of birth.) For example, here's the number of one of my this year's foals: 840039020107017. From this number I can tell he was born in the US, he is a Friesian Sporthorse with the Friesian Sporthorse Association, and his individual registration number is 20107017, which tells me he was born in 2010.

                                      For USDF All-Breeds, a horse which is registered / recorded / approved with multiple registries is not required to declare the birth registry / initial registry / UELN issuing registry for All-Breeds purposes.

                                        This whole EU thing may have caused alot of unintentional confusion, I think. Now that many (most? all?) registries are issuing COP's, it is causing some confusion from people who think if a horse has a COP from RegistryABC then therefore it is BreedABC.
