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!

    is there something in particular that you're looking for? and what size? It might be helpful to describe your mare and what you're looking to improve upon.

        Usually when breeding you have a mare picked already and then you choose a stallion who will compliment her and improve on the things that need improving. There are HUNDREDS of pony hunter stallions out there. If you would like to know what ones are the leading hunter sires check USEF. If you are wanting to breed in the future I suggest starting to 'pony stalk' and get a good feel of the bloodlines that are in demand in the hunter ring and what produces top quality. Google will be your friend.

            Well, you should probably post this on the breeding forum to get more responses, but I will invite you to check out my stallions in the meantime. As you are in Ohio, you are welcome to come by and visit them in person if you would like. For the 2011 season we will be standing four Sec. B Welsh stallions, all with outstanding hunter movement and 100% imported bloodlines from proven hunter pony producing pedigrees. They are of various sizes and colors and all are handled daily and have quiet temperaments. There are many photos and videos of each stallion on my website. Good luck in your stallion search.

                JMHO, I don't think any good breeder should come on this thread and say what stallion they recommend knowing absolutely nothing about the mare.

                  You should move this thread to the sport horse breeding section.

                  Without information it would be nearly impossible to voice an opinion!!

                    Limerick, she said she had no mare picked out yet. I wasnt recommending my stallions for any mare...just inviting her to check them out as we are in the same state. Thought that was fairly easy to understand. And I agree, there is NO stallion that is perfect for every mare... no matter what the bloodlines are!

                      I think Quicksilver was just extending an invitation to view her farm and ponies to see what they have to offer, since she is also in Ohio. She has quite a variety of nice stallions there so there would be plenty to look at. It is always good to see them in person--you get a better idea of what they are all about and then in reverse, if she has a few mares to choose from, maybe can choose her mare to compliment a stallion she really likes. I have personally been to Sugarbrook in FL and can vouch that those two stallions are very nice too. I have a lovely son of Sugarbrook Blue Pacific that I am thrilled with. I also bred two mares to *Telynau Royal Charter this year, I think he is fantastic too (www.farmorefarms.com). USEF will give you a great starting point of who to google. Do find the top breeders in the listings and pick their brains if you can (Sugarbrook being one of them)!! They obviously know what it takes to be at the top of their game. I agree that you will get more breeders' attention in the breeding forums. Good luck!

                        I have a 3yr old Foxtrot gelding that I bought unbroke 3 weeks ago, he is now broke to WTC and jumping small crossrails. He is the easiest going pony I have ever been around. No buck, spook ect. He is out of a Connemara mare that showed. Everyone says the Foxtrots have great brains, looks and movement and I really believe it after seeing lots of his sons.

                          Agree that you should also post at sporthorse breeding.

                          I would recommend that you find the BEST mare that you can find.

                          Beauty, brains, movement, and jump. Then find a pony stallion that complements the mare. Best to breed Like to Like. The stallion is only responsible for part of the mix of genes.

                            Megan, now I see why you asked!

                            Let me see if I can help and fill in some blanks.

                            All the potential mares are between 15.1h-16.0h
                            All have great temperaments, so that doesn't have to be "improved upon"
                            Great semen quality is a deciding factor as one of the mares is not maiden, but 17 years old.
                            Movement for producing hunters ranges from good with suspension but a bit too much knee action to very flat kneed and sweeping.

                            Deciding Factors: height consideration, substance, perhaps color as 2 of them are Chestnuts and I know that some people stay away from Chestnuts.

                            Here are some of The potential mares.

                                Take a look at some of Dianne Randolphs over @ hidden springs in s.c.
                                She has 5 or 6. all fancy movers w/ great brains/ temperment and lovely conformation.

                                She is currently standing tantallon outfoxed - one of the only stallion sons of otterridge foxtrot - that boy moves to die for and is just a stunning example of what a hunter pony stallion shoulde be (IMO).

                                I think shes going to open Hidden Springs Valentino to stud next year in late spring.. he is the spitting image of his grandfather Islander and has all that blue rain movement. Hes liver w/ chrome
                                Either of those guys will x to the mini tb mares for large ponies very nicely.

                                Cottrell Andromeda, Hidden Springs Lotus (Downland Condor)
                                and Lee Hill Bold Rumor are all good looking fancy moving typey boys in teh 13h range..

                                IDK Todd ( the foxtrot son) is my favorite, I have my woodlands mare currently x'd to him and can't wait for the foal in 11..

                                You can see tons of pix on her facebook page, or her website.

                                Lots to choose from and shes easy to work with. She also does alot of the breaking and training for Farnely up in Va.
                                Good luck!
                                =)

                                  I love my "grandson" (Tantallon Outfoxed) as well and thank you for pointing him out! He is owned by Margaret Bzdak and is standing at Dianne's for next season. He is stunning and a lovely mover (Otteridge Foxtrot really stamped his get). He is out of a very nice welsh mare, Tantallon Clear As Crystal by Lemontree Sea Captain. You can see some pictures here as well as on my facebook page (and Dianne's).

                                      Faircourt Maker's Mark, (aka Bourbon), 2007 welsh section B by Otteridge Foxtrot out of Glendale Bunny Bard.

                                      Owned by Abby Spanu, Virginia.

                                      Another stunning lovely mover (and well bred Foxtrot son) that will stand to a limited number of mares in 2011.

                                        The Foxtrot offspring all look like fabulous movers and are certainly beautiful. The ones we have seen over fences jump the best. Great blood runs true! He certainly left a great legacy in a very short time. It is hard to imagine what a huge impact he would have had if he had lived a long life.
