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.

  • Help me with stallion pick!!!!

    So, I would love to hear some stallion ideas for 2 of my girls.

    Girl1 needs an uphill leggy type with great shoulder. Need a stallion siutable for producing ammie friendly jumping types as well. No Acord blood since she is sired by one.

    Girl2 is very very fancy TB hunter who has a nice show record. Want to breed this one for a filly to keep in my breeding program. Would like to throw some amazing movement in this one and I'm not opposed to some dressage blood as long as he can throw a jump too. I know they are out there!! This mare is a hack winner herself, just want something over the top fancy. I love the "R" line like Rosenthal and Rubignon.

    Would love to hear thoughts and suggestions. I'm sure you guys can come up with fellas I wouldn't think to check out or have never even seen!!!

    For Girl1, I would recommend Foxdale Farm's Gatsby. We have used him to add leg to 2 of our mares [Winningconvictions & Ninety Deniro] and also to add a stronger, more uphill topline to one of those two [Winningconvictions]. We have 3 foals buy him - Global News [o/o Ninety Deniro], Game Point & Gabilan [both o/o Winningconvictions]. Check them out on our website. Conf. shots of mares are on there also.

    Also look at Coromino. I really liked his cross with Ninety Deniro [Coroniro on our website].

      How bout Metall or Stalypso for are Mare #1 for loads of leg and uphill carriage.

      I really like Westporte and Romantic Star for Mare #2...lovely movement.

        How about Cunningham for mare 1? I know a Metall that is very spicy - nice horse - but I'm not sure I'd suggest him based on my experience with this one gelding. Yes, just one, but it's enough Livello looks nice but he has Ahorn in there so you'd have to look at that pedigree.

        Cabalito has thrown some lovely movers that also seem to jump well You could also try Balou du Rouet - he is very elastic and could give you that extra wow factor - in the jump too Stedinger is an interesting option...totally outside the box but I've liked this stallion for quite a while. Quite possibly far too much knee but he shouldn't kill the jump. Sir Gregory is another one that looks like an absolute pleasure to ride - and has nice shoulder freedom - but I know nothing of his jump - just throwing the name out there for you to investigate. Davignport is a lovely mover as well. Those are my general suggestions of the day

          I personally love Redwine and maybe he would work for you with Girl2. He has some older offspring who are in Germany and boy do they look fancy. His oldest offspring in the US are not yet under saddle. He is doing hunters here but did dressage/jumping in Germany. He is (obviously ) from the R line. He seems to produce some nice babies. He is EVA positive so you'd have to vaccinate but maybe it's worth it.

            Thanks for the suggestions. Keep them coming!! There are some that I had not heard of so far that I will be checking out.

            Grayfox, I did not realize Redwine was from the "R" line(duh, he looks the part!). I don't know that much about the whole EVA thing, but his babies are gorgeous and he would be a nice match for my TB. I am looking to make her broodie replacement so would the EVA thing be something I'd have to worry about in a filly that I would be using for breeding by him?

              No worries with the EVA. Just vaccinate the mare and you're good to go. Mare's can't be carriers and any foal that they had wouldn't be carriers or have EVA. Good luck with your search, you've gotten some great suggestions.

                    I would agree. I have a weanling and a yearling by Manhattan -- full brothers. Both have great temperments and they both already show a great love (and natural skill) of jumping.

                    I would also like to recommend Richard. www.theequineathlete.net. Looks like you are located in Florida, I would be happy to show him and some of his offspring to you if you are up our way. He would be appropriate for either of your mares.
