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.

  • Tiznow for eventing?

    Does anyone here compete or know of someone who has a Tiznow baby for eventing? I'm having a hard time pulling up video or pictures of any jumping specifically. I hear they have good dressage movement, but what about their jumping abilities?

      I doubt if there are very many Tiznow's floating around anyplace. His fee is $75,000 and I bet his progeny go carefully from one hand to the next. He's just beautiful and if you have one within reach get to know him and see what you think, then post pictures!!!

        Yeah, it doesn't seem like there are very many in the sporthorse world.

          I don't know any in the sport horse world; they tend to be pretty successful racehorses, so not many end up in sport horse homes.

          I absolutely LOVE the look of them, though. Tiznows are pretty identifiable: he stamps them with a very "Classic" TB type, beautiful chiseled heads, long legs, nice necks, and well-balanced, often with a dab of white on the face or socks. You will commonly see them have short upright pasterns-- it always makes me pause, but they don't have a bad soundness record/reputation.

          Classy horses with a look of eagles, athletic and intelligent. I'd love to have one.

            I'll give you my anecdotal evidence of Tiznow babies. I know 2. Both have super temperaments. One was in race training, but had a serious breathing issue. After unsuccessful tie-back surgery I helped the trainer give him away. Last I heard he was being used as a school horse at a H/J barn. The other one is Well Armed. Winner of over 5mil He is the 2nd most pigeon-toed horse I've ever seen. Didn't stop him from being fast, but he was retired due to soundness issues.

              We have a young one that is just plain stunning. Jumps, too, only logs, etc. for a change of pace but, holy cow, some kind of fancy.

                I missed out on one by a day, a colt that had been considered a Triple Crown prospect until he decided he didn't want to run on dirt. He did fine in turf races, but was injured, and his trainer (Richard Mandella) gave him away. I still think of that colt and hope he did well in his new career.

                Tiznow may be my fav racehorse ever. He had immense talent, and was regarded as quite intelligent. He didn't run harder than he needed to (jockey McCarron said he'd probably never been in full flight), and protected himself if he wasn't feeling 100%. He had a back injury in his 4YO year and didn't want to fully extend himself until Breeders Cup day. His trainer considered him something of an enigma because there were days he didn't want to work.

                I visited Tiznow at WinStar, and he's a lovely horse in both temperament and physique. His offspring tend to have a similar look- standing over a length of ground, well-built, and athletic. I'd take one in a heartbeat.

                I've heard one person say she though they tended to unsoundness. As with many TBs, I suspect many such issues arise with big colts that are raced young. As a group, I would not consider them any more unsound that any other TBs, and perhaps less so.

                  We have a stallion by Tiznow. I've posted about him several times on COTH, cause I'm just so excited that he's mine! LOL He is very similar to what others have posted already. He has a super disposition, definite dressage movement, and very classic and athletic. Our guy has only jumped a handful of times and he is super, super round and powerful--like jump you out of the tack powerful. I free jumped him one time just to see what he was like, and after just a few passes through the chute he jumped 4' like it was nothing. He has a little bit of arthritis in his knee (he was a 2 year old in training sale "graduate") so I doubt I'll ever really event him--mainly because I would chicken out cross country on the big stuff!--but dressage and probably some schooling type jumping shows and lower level events we'll be doing for sure. I have lots of pictures of him on my facebook, but none of him jumping yet.

                  I agree that they do tend to do really well at the races so it's unlikely we'll see tons of them in the sporthorse world. Our guy we are breeding mainly for racehorses ourselves, and him being fun and talented under saddle are just a bonus for me, since I believe all stallions should have a job outside of breeding if they are physically and emotionally able to.

                  PS If you want to see my guy, here's some pictures of him on Facebook.

                    I worked on a breeding farm in Maryland and my favorite was a Tiznow baby. This had to of been back in 2005-2006 ? Either way, I just remember he was gigantic

                    I cant remember the mares name which is a shame as I when I quit I promised I was going to follow the babies.

                    We see how that turned out !!

                      We have several, in race training and two retired now jumping. The ones we have and I've known and ridden are big heavy horses. I have seen more then a normal amount with tendons, probably because of the aforementioned confirmation. All have been better then average movers, high dollar horses, with good conformation. They all seem to have a little tougher mouth then normal, and can be a bit obnoxious, as the sire was. Both jumpers have a good jump, with a lot of power. They all seem relatively brave, but can be trying for your average rider. Our two jumpers combined came with a 650K pricetag.

                          45 starts for the guy, mostly in low-level claimers, but it looks as though he kept trying throughout his career. I like his pedigree a lot- 2 crosses to Lyphard, plus Ridan, Round Table, Graustark, and Princequillo.

                            I like his pedigree and he does have a cute fact...but you are right, really can not tell much.
