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.

    You can go several ways. You can choose a stallion known for producing endurance horses such as BA Fantizon http://www.endurance.net/kismet/BA_Fantizon.html or any of the Belesemo stallions http://www.belesemo.com/


    You can go the race horse route and choose something big and Russian or French like the stallions as Asgard http://www.asgardarabians.com/

    I really like the studs at Fairview http://www.fairviewarabianstud.netfi...stallions.html.

    I would go the French/Russian route and and breed my Abu Farwa mare to Stratagem at Asgards, or Aul Magic http://legendaryarabians.com/magic.htm but I do dressage as well so great gaits are important to me.

      David Ward of Fairview Stud recently had to downsize his herd due to the loss of a long term lease on pasture (the landowner no longer wanted horses on the land-only cattle). There was no suitable property available for 90+ horses so there was a major dispersal a few months ago.

      Aul Magic had major colic surgery last summer and is no longer standing at stud though there is frozen semen available.

      Peter Mileo has a stallion, Magic Aulrab, (bred by the same breeder as Aul Magic) that has competed in distance events.

      There is also Van Gilder Arabians: http://www.vangilderarabians.net/

      Al-Marah has also produced a number of endurance horses including Tevis winners:

      I am familiar with the above breeders because I also breed CMK Arabians, but as Eddy's Mom pointed out the French racing lines as well as many of the Polish and Russian lines are also particularly well known as endurance producing lines.

        also looking...

        I have a 4yo grey mare who just had rather sudden surgery for an aggressive melanoma between her thighs, behind her udder. With her age, size of tumor and location, my vet told me I probably wouldn't have her as long as I planned as this indicated she would eventually develop the internal type. If I were to breed her, do it in the next five years and to a bay to try to head off another horse prone to this. I don't care about color, but greys do attract me.

        She is Polish/Crabbet through her sire, with Bask, Naborr, Lewisfield lines, Ferzon and 43 crosses to Skowronek. Her dam is pretty straight Egyptian, with Nabiel, I. Imdal, quite a bit of Nazeer, and a touch of Babson.

        I thought some day I might breed her to Sanskrit or an *Origan son I can't remember the name of (there's been a picture of him doing endurance, he's Polish and grey too). I love Peter Mileo's stallion but not sure he's quite right for this mare. I found Galaxy I (though he has a son doing endurance, I like him but love his dad) and loved him but his owner isn't doing AI, and Tuhotmos son, Klassic El Sareei and he isn't either.

        I want a compact horse, size doesn't matter as I'm pretty short. Of course, great movement, deep body though not too wide, great hindend and I like a big eye just for me. I'd like to avoid The Desperado breeding, just not a fan.

        Again, I love greys but need to find a bay as there has been a study they are least likely to pass on genes for melanoma. (dominant agouti). I'm in central Ky, looking for TS and a reasonable stud fee so I can swing the vet and fed ex and other fees.

          Take a serious look at LS Zane Grey +// , not even sure if he's still breeding though. He has a super record, and producer SOUND offspring with incredible minds. I rode that stallion several years ago, and he has a very good temperament himself. A real athlete. From what I've seen, he very consistently produces offspring with good temperaments, good movement, and tremendous athletic ability. He has three huge gaits. He has an Anglo Arab daughter doing very well in Dressage (PSG?). I've considered him many times for my Arabian mare. I had looked at purchasing a mare by him several years ago, but unfortunately that fell through, no fault of the horse.

            http://www.asgardarabians.com/bandjo.htm Dr. Tom Sayvetz has donated several Bandjo horses to the Old Dominion Endurance Rides Inc to raffle off as fund raisers. I was very impressed with the filly from last year and this year's filly is a gorgeous mover. They have good brains and are people oriented beside being bred to race and do endurance. don't let still photos of young Arabs fool you. They often looked puny or just so so until you see them move.

              I honestly don't what his get are doing, but I'm a huge fan of Envoy BBF, in TX. He's done sport horse, hunters, and endurance. I almost bred by polish mare to him a few years ago. He also races. He stands at Spirit of Texas Arabians.


              • #8
                Yes! Envoy is the *Origan son I was thinking of! Think I spelled his sire's name right...

                  The Shagya Arabian stallion is a perfect cross

                  on purebred Arabian mares! The French have several winning endurance lines,
                  including many world champions from infused Shagya blood. The Emirates are
                  now looking at his combination.
                  When you use some of the Shagya stallions standing in the U.S. your first generation cross will be considered purebred IF there are enough Shagyas
                  in the fourth generation.
                  Best of all, the Shagya/Arabian cross will give you more bone and substance,
                  normally eliminate the flighty, skittish temperament and produce a world class horse.
                  HUNGARES, the last 100 mile WEG winner was a gelding picked out of the
                  Babolna herd in Hungary, without any ceremony. This breed is tough as nails, but
                  a true joy to ride.
                  At the present time, the AMERICAN SHAGYA ARABIAN VERBAND, INC. is offering a special on stud fees. Go to www.shagyaregistry.com for the details

                      I am new to this forum. But not new to distance riding. If you are looking to breed a high level endurance competitor then breed to a Shagya stallion. Of the two horses representing the USA at the President's Cup 100 mile race in Dubai last week, SA Belshazzar has a Shagya sire,out of an arab mare. Zar's first 100 mile race, done in 9 hrs and 16 min in his second yr of endurance competition. Sir Smith(ox) and he were the first to finish of the foreign competitors. 2006 the World endurance race in Germany was won by a Shagya.

                      If you are looking for a resonable stud fee for Shagya stallions then check out www.shagyaregistry.com and click on the jump start portion of the web site.
