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.

  • American Saddlebred stallion crossed with a Quarab mare

    The stallion, I was told, was a black and white (tobiano pattern) Saddlebred. The mare was a palomino Arabian/Quarter cross and belonged to a family friend. My parents bought me the foal for my 10th birthday, a gorgeous bloodbay, tobiano colt, who we named Cherokee. He is now 13yrs old and unfortunately circumstances arose and I had to rehome him along w several others. He sired 3 fillies out of a bay Quarter horse mare who has the dun factor (has a solid dorsal stripe which she passed to all her foals, 4 total. Bought her 7 months bred), two solid bloodbays, and a loud black and white tobiano who I was fortunate enough to get back from the person she went to. Happy that I have a part of my 1st horse, but I hope some day I can find my Cherokee again.

    Anyway, my question is this: is there a particular name that this mix, American Saddlebred/Arabian/Quarter horse, is called? I'm very curious to know 'cause it sure made one beautiful horse.

    The only saddlebred cross that is named to my knowlege is the National Show Horse--and that is a Saddlebred/Arab cross

      I hate to be a negative Nancy, but WHY did you breed this horse? Just for color? Why was he even kept a stallion? Obviously since there isn't a "name" for this mix-breed, there isn't a registry for it, so why breed it out to another breed at all? Bred to a QH or Arab, you can register the babies as halves since both of those registries have "Half-QH" and "Half-Arab," but the stallion himself? No. Just...no.

      Sigh. I'm happy you got part of your horse back, but I just don't get it.

          Since I see this is your first post, I thought I would give you just a little warning, people on this board are particular about breeding only purebred horses. You will not receive many positive comments. This thread will turn into a trainwreck very quickly.

          On the other hand, if you are trolling, enjoy the fire.

                It's would be classified as a grade horse. And I'm not going to get into the breeding dispute, other then to say, I have almost exactly the same arab/qh/1/2 saddlebred mare that I picked up a few years back - she is a lovely little thing (only 14.2hh) but great. shes very popular with the riding student kids because she's very gentle and super flashy.

                    The American Saddlebred is in the genetic history of many European WB's.

                    There is a FB page for Saddlebreds and American Saddlebred crosses that might be helpful.

                    I breed ASB's but I see no sense in crossing them with anything other than an Arab (due to the number of opportunities for showing or endurance riding. I don't personally do the cross

                      The pony was an ASB stallion on a paint mare, a mostly QH paint mare. supposedly he had provenance at one point to be registered in the half ASB registry, but honestly he's a grade horse.

                          I do not find this to be accurate. Particular about breeding horses that exemplify the qualities if their particular breed OR sport, absolutely. Even breeding "purebred" of mediocre quality is irresponsible imho.

                            A registered grade horse just seems like an oxymoron... What will they think of next?

                              Too bad you picked one of the hot button issues to make it your first post -
                              don't worry about the comments, as there are many marvellous grde horses out there, and many horrible registered horses. Most of today's breeds are crosses of something, anyway.

                              I'd never accept that anybody told me how, or when, or who to breed to
                              and I have produced some nice horses I think.

                                Yeah, it's a mutt. I would be curious about the consistency of product, so to speak. Could be really pretty (colors aside) or really ugly, depending on which genes it got from which parent. Did most of the offspring look more like ASBs, Arabs, QH, and did they look like each other, that's the question.

                                  I did not know there was a half QH registry. Had to google it. Looks completely unaffiliated with AQHA though, so not sure how legit it is. The half registries for ASBs and Arabs are at least affiliated with the purebred registry.

                                  I agree on the breeding though. I think a horse should be successful at whatever it was bred to do before it gets the opportunity to pass on its genes, registered or not. A non-registered horse would have to be spectacular (great mind, conformation and at the top of its discipline) for me to even consider breeding. Even then I would probably not breed if I couldn't verify bloodlines on the unregistered horse and if the resulting foal could not be registered with any legit registry, because people seem to place a higher premium on papers than performance in my experience.
                                  It is only through labor and painful effort, by grim energy and resolute courage, that we move on to better things.

                                    No, there is no name for that mix. Your Cherokee could have been registered Pinto if you had desired to. APtHA. They have a show circuit in USA and Canada. The Black/white Filly may also be possible to hardship register pinto - I'm not certain the current rules.

                                    Cherokee was also eligible for Half Saddlebred, but now would be prohibitive getting together all the info and signatures required.

                                    Some National Show Horses are 1/2 Saddlebred; and Georgian Grandes are usually 1/2 Saddlebred.

                                    Breeding is expensive; I am glad you were fortunate to get the type, look and movement along with the great temperament you did.

                                    Note that most USEF disciplines and almost all playday/ competitive work disciplines are open to any or NO breed horses. You don't ride the papers and they don't win for you.

                                    Thanks for posting your enjoyment of your horses.

                                      I think you could get a very nice horse out of that mix. I think you can get total crap out of registered horses. I don't care about papers nearly as much as I care about what kind of horse is produced. I think you have to look at every horse with a conformation/health eye before you ever look at papers. Papers should be the very good frosting on a very functional cake.

                                      We had an ASH and he was a total fruitcake with questionable conformation. But hey, he could be registered!

                                        DBS raises a good point. I have known several "grade" horses who were half ASB from APtHA breeding programs (both spotted and solid) that were VERY nice, well conformed, great moving Saddle type horses. Back a few decades, they could still show as 3 gaited, 5 gaited or Pleasure horses as the classes were not yet restricted to registered Saddlebred horses only. I myself mourn the passing of those days.
