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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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.

  • Suggestions/Guidance for Orlando/Indorado/ Rex Magna mare out of strong mare line

    Looking for some help from the knowledgeable jumper breeders. I have an Orlando/Indorado/RexMagna.
    https://www.horsetelex.com/horses/pe.../kvf-jamaica-s

    Here is her mare line
    https://www.horsetelex.com/horses/family/280197/wendy

    Mother Wendy has produced a 1.40m horse ( byToulon) and a 1.45m horse (by Tempranillo)
    Grandmother Kristin produced two ISH 1.60m horses (by Dominard and by Lancelot) and two 1.30m horses (by Burgraff and Willem)
    Great Grandmother produced 4 more 1.60m horses, including one which is a full sibling to Kristin

    My goals for breeding are to breed for myself (late maturing is fine) with the hope to produce a 1.50m horse.
    My mare is smaller (15.3hh). She has excellent technique, reflexes and willingness. She is bold and very simple. At 5 years of age I can put almost anyone one her and she will jump from anywhere. I do not have a good idea of her scope yet, as I have not jumped her overly big. She is behind due to my own pregnancy, and therefore only showed around the 1.0m last year. I would like to add power, size, make her a little more uphill. She has good basic gaits and good push. I would like to maintain or add blood (I like a lot of blood), maintain her technique, maintain her soundness. I would also like to maintain her willing attitude and desire to jump.

    I do not have a good conformation shot of her, but if there is considerable interest, I can get around to that. She is a little rectangular and perhaps a little short legged. She does not appear downhill, but does travel a bit downhill (although, that is due as much to greeness as anything else, she does run herself a bit into the ground at the moment.) She has good power in her walk and trot. The canter is still a little unbalanced, but shows good push.
    Her mother has, according to her breeder, produced a couple of quite complicated horses that are quirky and difficult to reason with. As I have not bred my mare yet, I have no idea if she will throw more of her own temperament or not.

    Any guidance or ideas would be much appreciated! What nicks with her bloodlines? what should be avoided with her blood lines? What should not be doubled up, and why?
    Thank you in advance

    Great questions and how fortunate for you to be starting with a mare from such a proven family of producers! I am not a jumper breeder, but good luck with her. You might ask Kathy Hickerson at Majestic Gaits farm as she carries many of those stallions' frozen and might know what would work well. Good luck!

      Thank you! I will reach out.
      I'm really hoping some folks reply to this. The NA breeding community can only get better through education and mentorship. I totally understand that specific stallion suggestions are difficult without knowing my mare, but based on the information provided, are there directions I should look or avoid? Are there stallions in her pedigree I should not double up on? Is there potential conformation concerns etc if one does?
      thanks again! I know there's a ton of knowledgeable people on this forum and I look forward to learning from you!

        Are there any stallions out there or horses out there jumping that you look at and think "that's something I'd really like to ride/that really looks like my type of ride"?

        Some stallions I like that might fit what you're looking for, are proven, available fresh in NA (as far as I know) and I believe are KWPN registered or approved:

        Rash R

        Utopie

        Navarone probably won't give you a lot more size but seems to produce great brains, good canters, and a lot of athleticism.

        Valentino

        ROC USA

        Vaust S

        Tacorde

        Jethro Tull (less proven, but I like him a lot so I'm throwing him out there)

          Thank you! I will look into several of those. Yes, I do prefer proven. She is not yet, so I will go proven. I don't require fresh.
          My favourite top horses (of any gender) today are: comme il faut, HH Azur, Clinta, DSP Alice, and many more. Basically, all blood horses with agood deal of heart and desire.

            If you're considering frozen as well, I'd look at Arezzo, Cardento (if she has correct legs), Untouchable 27 and maybe Luidam.

              Both Arezzo and Untouchable would double up heartbreaker. Is that beneficial?
              why do you recommend Luidam

                YMMV/Opinions differ on line breeding. I wouldn't say I see many double up on Heartbreaker, but I do see Nimmerdor line bred often, and I have seen Heartbreaker linebred a few times and I personally really, really liked those horses so I've always kept it in mind. Unfortunately, the names aren't springing immediately to mind but two that I know of are a horse called Bonheur S (https://www.horsetelex.nl/horses/ped...5725/bonheur-s) that I saw a number of years ago and thought it just looked like the coolest horse ever to ride, who is by Toulon and out of a Heartbreaker mare. If you google the name and his rider (Luca Moneta) you'll be able to see some old videos. I'm afraid to include too many links in case it means the reply gets eaten, which sometimes happens.

                The other I can think of right away is a mare called Bieke van de Elshoeve (https://www.horsetelex.com/horses/pe...an-de-elshoeve). It was a long time ago and I doubt there is any video of her anywhere, but she was really cool. I really liked one of her foals I saw a few years ago too and would have liked to have bought it.

                I also see from a quick search that VDL Stud bred a stallion named Garezzo by Arezzo and out of a Padinus (Heartbreker) mare that seems to be doing very nicely in Italy jumping some 2* Grand Prixs.

                Not saying that is clear evidence it should be done, just that I've seen it and liked the horses.

                As for Luidam - he just sprang to mind for me. I liked him, I think he produced some super horses and felt like he was a very good producer given the range of mares he was used on, and he is one I always think of in context of good canters and some blood and height.

                Are you wanting to stay with KWPN or other registries as well? I'm no expert at all, really just throwing out names based on horses I've seen and liked and sound like they fall into the category of what you're looking for.

                  This years VDL Stallion show is up on clipmyhorse.tv. It might help you get a quick look at a bunch of their stallions. They give the pedigree, jog the horse in hand, show some video, and talk a little bit about what the horse throws and what type of mare might be best.

                      Ok, I've worked my way through most of the stallion suggestions. It seems that only Valentino and ROC USA are proven (offspring performing above1.40m), but Roc USA are all out of one TB mare (what a mare!!), and my mare is not the most TB like horse.
                      I haven't had a chance to watch the stallion show yet. (Working healthcare, do NOT have extra time on my hands these days) but I am looking forward to it. I will also definitely look into Valentino more. Thanks for the help so far!
                      I should add, that of my goals, adding height is the least important. I should have said length of leg.

                        Where did you look up offspring results? This isn't true.

                        According to Horsetelex results, which may miss out on some, here are the number of offspring showing 1.45m+ by some of the other stallions I mentioned:

                        - Rash R has 7 offspring, including two 1.60m horses
                        - Utopie has 6, including two 1.60m horses
                        - Navarone has 7, including three 1.60m horses
                        - Vaunt S has produced at least one 1.50m horse out of a limited number of foals
                        - Laroche has 8, including five 1.60m horses
                        - Cardento has 107 results for 1.60m horses, including several licensed stallions, 15 1.55m horses, 70 1.50m horses, and 98 1.45m horses.
                        - Untouchable 27 has 20, including six 1.60m horses - Ben Maher/Nick Skelton's Untouched, one of my very favorites, included)
                        - Luidam has 57, including seventeen 1.60m horses.

                          Yes, I should clarify, I had not yet looked at the 3 you mentioned frozen. I could not find LaRoche on horsetelex. Thank you for updating.
                          I actually straight up missed utopie! I will explore further.

                            Edgar from Eurequine is active here on this forum and maybe he can give you some feedback on whether Utopie would suit your mare, or I am sure he would be very responsive to emails if you reached out to him.

                              After a further deep dive in her pedigree, she has 1 cross to Capitol and no crosses to ladykiler in the first 9 generations! 3 crosses to Corde, a couple to Ibrahim and she has Dorette twice. But guys, no ladykiller and 1 capitol!
                              since I'm looking for power, a more uphill canter/way of going and length of leg, is there any reason to steer clear of carthago blood that I'm not thinking of? Also, is doubling Darco a bad idea? (Remember, she's a wee little mare)

                                Glenfiddich (Baccardi VDL - Corrado). I had one from him on a mare that I needed size and wanted top character and sold to a Grand Prix rider as a foal. Super character and really good mover with a great canter.

                                  Interesting. I don't think I want more corrado blood though. I find the corrado's can be a little heavy on the front end. She is as well. I should clarify that her canter shows good push and scope, but can be on the forehand.
                                  do you have any further suggestions?

                                    Navarone could work and puts on a super character, super jump too with a big uphill canter but not like to throw too much size as he is 16-2. He has some big offspring but usually out of bigger mares. I do love them, easiest stallion and offspring to work with.

                                    I would look at Zapatero VDL (Chin Chin - Ircolando). He has thrown tall, modern type with super jump and movement. Good characters with good energy for the upper level and proven.

                                    I wouldn't double up on Heartbreaker.

                                    I have had some super nice Crespo VDL (Canturo - Candillo) and he has thrown size. Maybe not as blood type though but great characters. He is in the USA now.
