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.

  • WHat stallion would you love to have a foal by?

    So I'm bored and need to waste some time, which leads to daydreaming. There are so many nice stallions out there, but which one do you dream of owning an offspring from for eventing of course? My top two choices are Formula One (http://www.tamarackhill.com/Stallions/F1.htm) and Olivier (http://www.imajica.net/oliviervideos.html). Both have beautiful movement (seen videos on both and could watch them move all day) and nice jumps. Personally, I favor a horse that would be winning after dressage (or be able to move up the levels of dressage ). Also on my list are Reputed Testimony (http://www.tamarackhill.com/Stallions/reputed.htm) and Fred (http://www.afineromance.ca/afineromance.html), but unfortunately I haven't seen either move which is why neither is in the top two. Who do you dream of?

      I know High Scope, but not Ramble On. Do you have a link for him?

        I would also love to have a Formula One baby; having ridden a few of the ISHs and ITBs a few years back in Ireland, I'm a HUGE fan. Plus, well, have you SEEN that stallion?
        If I thought he would compliment my little QH mare well, I'd go for it, but I was looking for a TB and something about Willy has always caught my attention. Gut feelings that linger for years seem worth acting on

          I'm waiting to see what the foal my maiden mare has this year looks like and may breed to him next in a couple of years. I'm also somewhat thinking of just buying a foal by him and importing it......but will probably wait. The $$ isn't the best for buying abroad and I really dont NEED another horse

          There are sooooo many nice stallions out there...you need to pick the ones that you think will match your mare best...so day dreaming is cool...but I remember the mare is just as important as the stallion!

          I breed to Royal Appearance for this first foal....I liked him and his pedigree...and of his few foals, the ones I saw were quite nice (one is at the ** level). He's conformation etc. looked like they would compliment my mare nicely. http://www.equine.vt.edu/stallions/royalappearance.html

          I also like the look and pedigree of this guy too for my mare http://www.futuresporthorses.co.uk/Future_Illusion1.htm

          All the ones the OP lists are lovely as well.

            I have to say Ironman, as I already have one and will be breeding my mare to him this spring for another one. There is something to be said for an amazing temperment, not to mention they can jump the moon



            • Original Poster

              All lovely horses. I'm curious to see how Future Illusions progresses. I love his trot, but the canter on the lounge wasn't worth judging him on (don't think it gives an accurate picture since he seemed like he was being chased).

              Of course the mare is a big part of the equation, but I posted it in such a way that those without a mare or those not intending to breed could play along. Luckily my choices are also nice matches for my mare.

                I agree...of course my priority is on jumping and gallop. I like a good mover but will take a good jumper over them any day.

                I also like that stallion that Denny posted awhile ago...Coolman. He looks pretty cool in all respects. I'd need to look closer at him to see if he matches with my mares. He looks like he has lovely movement and a fab. jump. He looks a little long in the back for my one mare...but that may also be the picture.

                  Right now, I am loving Formula One. I also would like to have a Special Memories foal or maybe a Fuerst Gotthard foal. I also really like Triple Twist.

                  If I could have a fantasy baby, I would have Saratoga Six (he passed away a couple years ago) or a Zen baby (he passed away MANY years ago) or a Black Tie Affair baby (very expensive stud fee). There is also a TB stallion that I am not sure where he went that I would love to track down. His name is Touch Tone. He is by Pick Up The Phone out of a El Baba mare.

                  2mares: I have a friend that bred to AFR (Fred) and saw his video My goodness, that horse can jump. And he has a lovely trot. The mare my friend bred to AFR is an older style Holsteiner mare that is a fabulous jumper. The baby got his daddy's movement And hopefully both parents jump. Plus my friend said that Fred's owner was really great to work with.

                    Oh the jump on Coolman! He won't be knocking any rails with his hind. He looks a little long backed for me also. Lovely horse though.

                    I'm dreaming so I want it all! Jump & movement!

                      My mare is in foal to Formula One and I'm really excited to see how the foal turns out. I'm not sure if I'll be breeding again right away, or waiting a year. But there are several that I have my eye on, most have been listed here already, its good to know what other eventers are looking at too!

                        Our friend has a Black Tie Affair daughter in his broodmare band for racing. GORGEOUS mare I told him if she ever turns out to be a racetrack broodie dud that I am stealing her and using her for sport horses.

                          I would love to have a Windfall foal, but he's too long through the back for my mare (she's like, oh, a mile long and would need improvement in frame that I don't think he would give). I really like Sandro Boy, but I'm not sure how great an eventer the foal would be. Sandro blood seems to make them a bit sensitive and high strung. I would prefer to stay with hanoverian approved stallions since I know how the registry works and all.

                            I would say the guy I showed last year in the YEH classes (He won 3 out of 4 of them), Tailored Fortune.

                            He is such a good boy. I have never seen a horse with a temperament like his. Just a good stunning guy. I was so proud when he got his picture in PH in January.
                            He is nice on the pictures, but really striking when you see him in flesh. Hopefully, he will follow the foot steps of his Sire who was HOY at Prelim' level and competed at the Advanced level, and then became HOY at the PSG level (all that was achieved in Australia).

                            So far, Taylor is showing a lot of talent. Keep an eye on him

                              Babamist! Not obviously, going to happen, but I rode one of his daughter who I liked a lot. She had some soundness issues, but not due to breeding/conformation.

                                  Oh Mademoiselle I was drooling over him at Winona. Lovely, lovely boy and such a sweetie. I'll definitely keep my eye on how he progresses. Will he be at Winona this year?

                                  53 I'm so jealous. You must post pics when you foal is born.

                                    Hopefully he will be at Winona. I'm currently almost 39 week pregnant and it just depends on how fast I can get back in the saddle.

                                    Last time he was ridden was the 1st week of October ... He enjoyed his time off and he needed it (he is a WB) and even if we didn't show him very much, he enjoyed just being a horse.

                                    So, the goal is to start him beginning of May and hopefully have him going and ready for Winona.

                                    Thank you for the kind words. I'm very lucky that his owners are letting me ride him. He is awesome.

                                      A few weeks back I posted on the breeding forum about recommendations eventing stallions and one of the stallions was this one
                                      Alligator Fontaine

                                      I'm a big temperament person and know nothing about his temperament, but the videos in that link left me drooling. He makes it all look eaaasssy. His balance, rhythm and movement is stunning. If he is known for good temperament, I think he could be my dream eventing stallion.

                                      The foal I'm expecting this April is FEI dressage bred, but there is some serious jumpers there, too. So here's hoping....although he is going to be about 16.3H most likely.
