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.

  • Arabian-welsh cross ideas

    I currently have a well bred arabian mare who is rather small and I am thinking about breeding her to a pony (possibly welsh). is there anyone who has had any success with arab-pony crosses or have any ideas for welsh studs?

    thanks

      I have one here

      Okay well she is 1/2 Arab, 1/4 Shetland & 1/4 Welsh. I have had her since she was 8 yrs she is 36 this year. Pumpkin was a fantastic pony hunter. 12.05 hhs Chestnut, with a Big star, stripe and snip and two hind socks. Great mover, jumper and conformation. She scored a 99 in a Pony Hunter Classic one year and qualified to go back east to indoors. When I showed her the pony hunters were 3' and pony jumpers wre 3'6" which she did. I will say though as a young pony she was tough but I owe so much to her. She would be perfect and if you got to thinking that you knew what you were doing she would throw something at you. When you had that figured out and you were thinking you were good again she would throw something else at you. She is a great pony to have around and even now she thinks that she rules everything.

      I can't help you on who to breed to but I would do an arab/welsh cross in a heart beat. Remember the foal will be super smart though so should make for some entertaining times.

        Here is a Welsh/Arab cross that I am sending out to show pony hunter breeding this year. He is 3 yrs old and stands 14hh at the moment. He has a great personality and is a beautiful mover.

            I bred a lovely CMK/Davenport Arabian mare to GRP stallion Bodyguard (stands at Highlife farm). She was simply stunning as a foal...beautiful and great movement. She was premium Weser-Ems and the judges and fans favorite! Check out Laurel on my foals page for more info.

                While we have had alot of interest in our Weser - Ems stallion Chardonnay from the Arabian breeders (he's quite pretty, and isn't so big as to stress the Arabian mares), they have shown interest in several Weser - Ems pony stallions. Many of these stallions are predominantly dressage oriented, but they sure can jump - Chardonnay for instance scored a '10' for jumping in Germany! The German Riding Ponies crossed with Arabian mares make a really great result...!

                  I am in the process of hopefully doing this myself

                  I have come down to two possible stallions..

                          Depending on the size of your mare and what you want to create I love Blue Who though he is not full Welsh, I also love Ridley who is a Weser Em sport pony. Both are totally different and for different purposes

                            I LOVE the Welsh x Arab cross, and it was what I had before we had the purebred ponies -- and what eventually prompted me to seek out the purebreds. They are the most wonderful combination of both breeds, as they compliment each other so well. I think that you just cannot go wrong with this cross!!! It is one of my all time favorites!!!!!!!

                              How about this guy:

                                  I love the arab/welsh cross. All of our pony hunters in the 70s/80s were of this cross. In the 90s I added the TB blood in for the 3 way cross. That is my personal favorite. I would love to have a nice arab mare to breed to my welsh stallion. Best of luck!

                                        You WILL need a friend to keep your head on straight... He is the cutest little thing you'll ever see... you will want to pack him up and take him home with you in the backseat of your car! But then again all of Glenhaven's ponies and cobs are super, super nice! I really want to breed my Arab mare to their buckskin stallion Glenhaven Jordie!
