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!

  • ? on North America Eventing stallions

    Which stallions are offered with fresh collected semen that have had offspring going over Prelim level?
    TIA

    Royal Appearance--had one son who has goining Advance

    http://www.equine.vt.edu/stallions/royalappearance.html

    I think Aberjack is still collected fresh and has one son who is going Prelim (and I have a daughter just turned 6 who is about ready to move up to Prelim---out of a TB mare)

    http://www.tamarackhill.com/Stallions/stallions.htm

    Those are two that I know off the top of my head but I'm sure that there are many more....both don't have many older offspring....the oldest Aberjacks that I know are just turning 6 and the one RA son is just 8. I think that there have to be some by TB stallions out there....maybe some Harry the Hats....Not sure if A Fine Romance still does fresh.

      Brandenburg's Windstar sired Arthur and Polar Storm. Both are going Advanced. Arthur is currently in the top 10 USEA horses and on the short list for the Olympics.

      I have a mare by him, but she's going Novice....

        can't believe I didn't think of him...the offspring I've seen by him are very nice. I'm not big on Irish....but I do really like him and what he has produced.

        Windfall has at least one son in the US who has gone Prelim (his oldest here) not sure what the offspring in Europe have done.

        Not sure what the Mystic Replica offspring had done but he has the pedigree for eventing....be worth asking. http://www.lanefieldfarm.com/mysticreplica.htm

            A Fine Romance is North American (Canada) and has offspring going Advanced I think....

            Nothing on Salute The Truth's webpage mentions offspring competing at the upper levels, but if there are I'm all ears.... he is impressive.

                yeah...I bred my TB mare to him...foal is due end of next week....can't wait to see it!!! He stood at Hilltop but they really didn't do much to show him (or really any of their stallions). Shame cause it looks like he would have been a top level jumper or event horse! Now he is at VA Tech and they have done a great job putting some nice mares to him...I think that you will see more of his offspring come up the ranks. VA Tech has a few foals this year and last that look really nice! Hope that some eventers get their hands on them.

                Love my Aberjack mare as well....she has really good jumping instincts and just a solid business attitude...doesn't get pissy or hold a grudge if I make a mistake (like really miss to a fence) but is still a good sensitive ride. I think she will at least be a ** horse with ammy me. She is a bit down hill in a her build (not sure whose side of the family that is coming from) but is still a nice mover and surprising good jumper. As she gets stronger and further along in her flat work, she is getting even better. (ETA She's soild training and will likely move up this fall--was 1st and 2nd in her last two training levels and just turned 6 this month)

                  A Fine Romance has (at least) three youngsters solid at Preliminary with potential for more(Tiamo, Risque Romance, and A Jack of Hearts), another has gone Advanced and is now a grand prix jumper (My Romance/Southbound). I believe there are more.

                    Are they still doing fresh with him? I thought I read that now they were just doing frozen....but I could be completely wrong (and it didn't really register with me since I'm fine using frozen...actually it is almost easier to me as long as it is good quality frozen).

                      Not yet, at least not that we know of. There are a couple that are going at Training level (Soldier of Truth with Buck Davidson had his first Training Level event at Waredaca; Absolute Truth has had several Training Level tests - her owner rides with Stephen Bradley so we've got high hopes for that one, too). We'll be following them to see what they're up to!! Willy's oldest offspring are 7 this year, I think. Just a handful the first couple of years, lots of 4 and 5-year olds out there, though, but none competing that high yet!

                        I second this. I've seen him in person many times.... Awesome stallion.

                          Someone pointed out to me an interesting caveat on the use of answers to a question like this one. The problem is that an eventing stallion that produces babies who could/would/should go all the way will have those babies sell into other sports more often than not--so the numbers a stallion might NOT have could actually reflect his quality and consistency a lot more accurately than numbers he does have (or, er, something like that--that didn't come out quite as clearly as it was put to me).

                            Very true. Add to that - they may go to someone who is a devoted amateur who has NO desire to go to the ULs.

                              I believe he has a number of young going intermediate/advanced. Penny Rowland has at least one...and there's an Ontario young rider with one too...Jean Rablat rode one....Gosh there must be a whole bunch by now!

                              Can you comment on the temperaments of his offspring? My coach has virtually ordered me to breed my hot TB mare to a non TB, but I remember hearing that Fred's babies were exceptionally levelheaded. Would you say that's been your experience/impression?

                                I don't know if Internet is avaliable over there, I have one of his offspring and she's fantastic! Regularly get people wanting to buy her.
                                But his offspring are very successful over here

                                  Now that I've checked her website I don't see any recent stuff on him. I'll try and send her a message.

                                        Fred himself is positively stoic. I love him. I have sat on him back when he was still doing the regular working hunters. Granted, it was just a walk around the arena, but I also had on shorts and no helmet!

                                        My own youngster that I bred, Tiamo, has an incredible talent and work ethic and temperament. Seriously, when he came down from Canada at 18 months of age, still intact, he did all sorts of fun stuff on his journey to Arkansas (laid up in Kentucky at 2 places for 3 weeks, got gelded, etc.) and was super to get started. Even the things that really challenged him - like learning to longe, the only thing that really caused him to push the envelope in terms of submission and, yes, I do have some scars to prove it - were VERY predictable and easy to negotiate.

                                        The other horses by him that I have personally seen all model this temperament. I would breed him to the hottest TB mare and expect a lovely temperament. I am glad I did.
