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!

  • Talk to me about Mystic Replica, please

    Does anyone here have a horse by him? What does he bring to the pot?

    I love his damsire line, especially.

    I've got a 2yr old by him. The horse is showing much promise just from his clearing of my nearly 5' round pen fence. I'm very impressed with Mysic Replica, and Mary Hazzard is such a professional. The stallion is by Babamist, who has a breeding record that can't be touched by any American eventing sire. I STRONGLY suggest breeding to this stud.

      I am the owner(along with DH) of two Mystic Replica offspring. They are full siblings out of a Trak/Conn/? mare who evented successfully P and I with a Young Rider years ago.

      Our 2000 gelding is very sensitive but kind. He can gallop all day, scores usually near the top in dressage and would probably jump clear more often than he does without an amateur owner up! He is also attractive, 17.1, sound with little maintenance and probably going to do his first Int. this year. He has never had a xc fault after several years at the Prel. level.

      Our 2002 mare - ditto on temperament ( actually more sensitive), gallop, stadium, attractiveness. She is grey and 16.3. Her dressage is very good, sometimes a bit tense.
      Moved up to P successfully last fall. No xc faults in 5 years.

      Overall I would say that their only weakness is how sensitive and hot they are. Who knows where this comes from but have learned a lot about how to make this type happier and expect to learn more from them in the future. I couldn't fairly describe them as ideal Amateur rides. But they are stuck with us!

      Just wanted to add that their granddam won the team Gold medal at 1978 world champs in Lexington.

      Hope this info helps.

        Certainly, the Babamist line has a "reputation" deserved or not, for being more the hot/sensitive types. This may also hold true for those by Mystic Replica, though this is the first I have heard that directly

          Scubed, I wasn't meaning to infer that Mystic Replica passed on this "feature" particularly, since both came from the same dam - it's possible that this came from her. I know for a fact that they share other peculiar idiosyncrasies with her. Sigh.



          Ironically, the reason MR was used by this breeder for many of her broodies was a combo of Babamist lineage and the lovely temperament of Mystic Replica. Not sure how the rest of the that group of babies turned out.

          Maybe just the "perfect storm" with these parental units.

          Mary Hazzard (owner of MR) would be a great resource for more info on him and his get. She is the real deal.

            I have worked with a few MR babies (all full TBs). I have found they tend to mentally mature a bit slowly (maybe from mom) but are truly wonderful hores. They are sensitive (but I wouldn't call these particular horses "hot"), they try very hard and are very athletic.
            I got to "hang out" with Mystic Replica for a few days and he is a pretty spectacular. He has a fun personality...he rings a bell attached to his stall for peppermints...great manners, easy to work around and oh so handsome.

              Babamist certainly had that reputation but most people I know familar with that family line all said the second generations were what you wanted (i.e. with Babamist as a grandsire). So crossing to MR would get you that generation....although from what I've heard of him, he himself has a lovely temperment.

              I've sat on several by Babamist and by his sire Mystic when when I was younger. Usually smaller horses who were very VERY catty jumpers. Forward and independent....and didn't think highly of dressage (but would do what you asked). Smart smart smart horses and very honest. I generally liked the ride.

              I've seen a few horses by MR. Maybe 4 or 5 now. Most were catty, shorter coupled--good hind ends. One I know is a taller ranger horse. Fairly distinctive heads/faces. All seemed like very good jumpers and smart. I know at least one going Prelim...and think there are others...and quite a few are show horses and nice hunt horses.

              Mary Hazzard would be the best to ask. She knows her stuff.

                Can't say enough good things about Replica. He is one of the kindest most mannerly stallions you will ever meet.
                I had the privledge years ago when he was a much younger man to get to sit on him and he was so fun.
                I found him to be very sensable and well mannered and fairly quiet.
                I also have gotten to see Mary jump and ride him on many many occaisions and he is nothing short of amazing over fences.
                He is definately one to have a look at.
                Mary doesn't do enough advertising though She is slowly getting the hang of the internet so maybe I can get her on here to tell you more about him.
                Otherwise....give her a call and ask her about him. She can tell you better then anyone and can answer any questions you might have.

                    This is a replica baby.. he is big and out of my mare (who is a granddaughter of babamist).

                    http://www.tangerinesporthorses.com/teddygallery.html

                    Last I heard, teddy was super sweet, not overly careful in front (typical babamist and he got a double dose!) but "so easy to break it was scary" He is ridden by an older ammy.

                    The other replica I know is talented but a bit of a brat, testy and opinionated. He is 1/2 warmblood and I don't know the mare, so who knows.

                          Thank you subk and scubed for that info and for the link to his pictures. I appreciate being able to track him now.

                          Debi bred her MR mare (1/2 TB, 1/2 Trak) to AFR twice.The second foal, a filly, was outstanding, but was injured and is now a broodmare. Her first foal this year was an Ard Celtic Art filly!

                          I was very pleased when Debi bred her good mare to AFR.
                          I have only heard very good things about Mystic Replica and felt that was a wonderful event breeding.

                            Have currant 3 horses by Replica have had 4 others in the past, all have been really easy to get started under tack and all good jumpers. Some easier to do in dressage than others but the Mom seemed to be a big factor in that.

                            Mary Hazzard is a wealth of knowledge and so good with lines and what crosses best with what so really worth a call to her!!

                            I love all mine!!!

                              We had a lovely filly by Mystic Replica out of our mare Good Queen Liz (dam of Salute The Truth). She was really fantastic, but we unfortunately lost her to a pasture accident. Her name was Mystic Queen - she looked like she would have been super fancy. She was very feminine and very athletic (and very opinionated). http://dodonfarm.com/images/mystie.jpg

                                  Hmm, there's a MR daughter x AFR out there and looking good.

                                  I wonder what an AFR daughter x MR would look like...

                                  Any guesses? Now, if only I could come up with a stud fee and the $$ for the ET costs to find out
                                  I, too, am sorry for your loss, Erin.

                                    Thanks all. She was nice and it's never a good thing to find a horse down in the field.

                                    Edited to add: I am very much looking forward to seeing more MR offspring on this thread.

                                      Mystic Replica filly

                                      I have a beautiful Mystic Replica filly out of a dutch/TB mare. She is becoming pretty fantastic. She is sensitive, but not particularly hot (although she does have her moments!). She is definitely bold and confident, but also very sweet and "in your pocket". She is technically only a year and 8 months, but she is already 16HH. She has a very beautiful, feminine head. I'm getting quite excited about her! Below is a link to some pics of Fiona taken about a month ago- she still changes every week or so!
