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.

Thanks for being a part of the COTH forums!

  • Stallions to look for in OTT TB pedigree

    I'm totally ignorant about what to look for in a TB's pedigree. What are good bloodlines that I should know about? Educate me!

    I don't breed, but like to keep track of stallions that produce just in case I breed my mare. I like anything Denny has, A Fine Romance, Spectacular Bid and I would like to know if a NY stallion has produced any sport horses, his name is city Zip.

      I may have to edit because I don't think A Fine Romance was on the track. . . not sure.

        I don't know about City Zip's progeny in the show world, but I have galloped several of them and backed one (a filly) last year. They are all AWESOME. Very, very trainable - they want to please and the ones I've ridden are quite competitive, but not nasty/mean - rateable and kind.

          Well, off the top of my head, Chieftan, Hail to Reason, Believe It, In Reality, Turn-To, & Caro are names that have appeared frequently in upper level eventers. A decade or so ago I started a database on pedigrees of all TB's running at 3 & 4 star level. It was interesting to see the repeats... and just as interesting to see the names you'd expect that weren't there that often.

          I'll try to dig it up and throw out some more names if I get a chance.

          Do you have a specific pedigree in mind? If so, toss it out on the racing BB you'll get a lot of comments.

          Regards,
          Arcadien

            He was bred for the track, but never raced.

              Makes me really anxious to see the foal we have coming this year. It will be out of a Spectacular Bid mare, by a son of Popeye K.

                    There are lots to look for but depends on where you are.

                    One that I like but is hard to find is Foligno. He stood here in MD and I haven't meet one yet that couldn't Jump high and move well. One son won the MD hunt cup twice. He died a few years ago so they are getting hard to find.

                    I also love Hawaii in a pedigree as well.

                    Easier to find that I like is Turn To, In Reality, and Majestic Light. There are many others as well....but of course it depends on the individual horse.

                      I see Turn-To is listed, and he's a good one, is he?

                      Any other ones on there that look good?

                          Damascus, Raja Baba, In Reality, Black Tie Affair, Caro, Northern Baby and Roberto are some of my favorite names. I also really liked Saratoga Six.

                            So funny you mention Foligno! My favorite schoolie at college here is Fleishman who is sired by Foligno He's a super jumper, AWESOME personality, cute as a button (tiny at 15.1 and narrow as a pole but since I'm 4'10 he fits me perfectly. My instructor calls him the oversized pony ).

                              I like your horses Turn-To on top through Cyane, getting rarer these days! Good old sound long lasting blood.

                              Others I see that crop up multiple times on my UL event horse DB: Owen Tudor, The Axe, Mahmoud. Bold Ruler & Man o'Ware blood is there, common nowadays, but never hurts.

                              Some nice, hard knocking racehorses there. Good luck with him.

                                      They do seem to come in all sizes! I have mare by him who is 16.3 hands...tall but not a real big girl. I've know a few others that were 16.2+ hands. Another friend bred her warmblood mare to him and got a little one...not even 16 or she might just be 16 hands....doing extremely well in the hunters but probably would have evented too!

                                      He's known in this area....his race babies were often very good turf horses or timber horses.

                                        How could I forget Bonne Nuit! I like Denny's list. I've known several horses with those lines up close. I remember a jumper mare that was by Mystic and another Mystic son (gelding)....they were very good jumpers---might be showing my age there!

                                        This is my to be brood mare's pedigree (she's due in June)

                                        If we start talking about some of the TBs oversees the list could get really long (but very hard to find in OTTBs from the states).
