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!

Quimbo's breeding?

  • Quimbo's breeding?

    I'm very curious as to what (breed or breeds) comprise his pedigree??; he is simply spectacular! (They say "Spanish-bred", but he is obviously neither a mustang nor a baroque breed, so there must be some purpose-bred TBs and/or WBs in their breeding program.)

    Be still, my heart...He is simply exquisite, and what an athlete! Yummy.

    (Some good riding --not to dismiss the "pilot's" influence--he too was phenomenal. It was a pure PLEASURE to watch them jump around that course.)

      Interesting!

      By a holsteiner stallion out of a Spanish bred mare that looks to go back to some hannovarian blood. Grandfather is Landgraf I. Only 28% blood which certainly was not apparent in the way he tackled that course. Beautiful horse.

      I do believe horsetelex is correct as it lines up with the FEI database.http://https://data.fei.org/Horse/Detail.aspx?p=FD083D872332AF87DAD4B2C616EE7F7B

        I just watched them go xc, gorgeous horse! And flawless riding of course.
        Quimbo's dam is listed as a CDE (Spanish Sportshorse?)...I've never heard of that breed before. Interesting!

          Do you think that's his real tail? I guess these guys would all have fake tails from dressage yesterday?

            Nobody really uses fake tails in eventing. I'm not even sure they are actually allowed in eventing.

                Some horses use fake tails in dressage, I can think of a few off the top of my head who have lovely 3 day tails, and no so nice every day tails

                They don't run with them cross country though.

                    ROFL, Jennifer is absolutely right. LOTS of fake tails in both of those sections. I personally find them ridiculous, but it doesn't hurt the horse so to each their own, I suppose.

                      CDE stands for Caballo Deporte Espanol (sorry can't find the correct squiggles for the vowels on my keyboard).
                      They are given that upon being sold/shipped/removed from Spain to elsewhere. I do not believe that denotes that they are of Spanish breeding but merely that they were raised in Spain and deported.
                      So don't think he's like baroque bred. I understand from Snoopy who posted a very nice snippet of an interview with Andrew, that indicated his owner and breeder, as well as the sister, have been breeding superb jumping line horses for many years, coming from an original herd developed by their father. Andrew purchased Quimbo and another Qwanza as 3yo's from them, originally meant as jumpers.
                      They have some warmblood breeding but the mares are developed by the family in Spain and are of their concentration from what I gathered from Snoopy's snippet. It's on another thread and I'll try to find it and link it.

                        From what Horsetelex lists, he's got Hann/Holst/SF and a little TB way in the back - unless there is something in that unknown part of his dam's lines, I thought it was a little confusing that they refer to him as "Spanish-bred", which makes people thing he's got to be part PRE or something.

                          Yes, they should have said bred in Spain, maybe? The Spanish-bred did bring to mind a Baroque breed, which was quite funny when you looked at Quimbo.

                          I still don't understand why the term "CDE" looks just like a breed acronym on the Pedigree, when it really is not.

                          In any case...Gorgeous horse!

                            This is the pedigree I came up with - dam's damline missing. I haven't found a single person that didn't flat fall in love with him! Jeez, and I always thought Andrew N. was sexy.

                                Hmm I seem to be vaguely remembering an interesting discussion a while back about using some kind of paint or whatever to get quarter marks on greys and I know there was a question if this was legal because of some rule stating something along the lines of "no artificial alterations" or something like that. Fake tails in eventing is news to me! Honestly, I thought eventers were above that vanity stuff. But then again, I don't even pull my horse's tail because I think its ridiculous.

                                  I think the confusing part is that (IMO) usually, when referring to the country of origin, you include a breed after that, like an Irish-bred TB. Just saying the horse is Irish-bred would sort of imply some RID lines in there somewhere.

                                  Anyone know if/what Quimbo is registered as? Allbreed just says WB and Horsetelex just shows CDE.

                                      Nereo and Armada are full brothers and were bred in Spain. Their breeder, Ramon Beca, also bred Quimbo and Qwanza, I believe.

                                        I suspect there is very little vanity that goes into the decision. A whole lot of smarts about the human eye, balanced views and subjective decisions in jogs/dressage movements, maybe... But vanity? Not so much.
