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.

  • Non-racing TBs?

    Hello all! I've been lurking on this board for a while and finally decided to make an account and ask you guys some questions.
    I have a TB mare, she's only coming 8 now and definitely still in the prime of life, but I do plan on breeding her someday.
    I'm curious - where are all the non-racing TB stallions? does anyone stand TB stallions for hunter/jumper purposes?
    If so, I'd love links to websites, success stories, pictures, etc from people who have experience in this area.
    Thanks!

      I have a 9yr old mare by Rock Point. Although he was a decent racer(won the Wood Memorial, 3rd in Preakness etc.), he went on to produce lots of good hunters. He was a much better hunter producer than he was a race producer.

      My girl was bred for the hunter ring and she did well on the line as a youngster and kicked butt once she was under saddle. She was champ EVERY time out her first year doing the baby greens often sweeping the division. She went on to do well in the lows then was sold to a teen who has lots of wins with her in the childrens. She is what people mean when they say a real "10" mover and she has an ammie friendly temperment too!! She is now retired to the breeding shed and is expecting her first foal by Apiro in April. I waited over a year for her to be available and I'm so glad I got her!

      Although I am focusing on the WBs now, the TBs will always be my true love and I will always have one or 2 around! To me they are the total athlete.

        You might also trying doing a search on "thoroughbred stallions" as there have been a number of threads about TB stallions being used for sport horse breeding.

        Also three or four years ago, another COTHer put a list together on her website listing TB stallions and what they were producing, what they were known for passing on...good and bad. I would have sworn that I had it bookmarked, but I can't find. Hopefully, either she or someone else will see this and post the link for you.

        In the meantime, off the top of my head:

        Noble Houston
        Castle Cove
        Aaron's Gold
        Artrageous

        there are also a number of "colored" TB stallions out there such as Guaranteed Gold, Billionaire ...I know there's four or five others, but my mind is blank at the moment.

        If you can't find the other threads, post and I'll try to find them for you tomorrow.

          There are also two interesting stallions at Maggie's Menagerie. Loyal Tendencies is particularly interesting.

              I stand my TB stallion Persian Star primrarily as a sport producing stallion. He started out as a race producing stallion first and formost, but, as a privately owned stallion, this was always a longshot at success. Though he has produced horses with racing talent, his mild popularity has fizzled out into unpopularity with the racing fraternnity LOL. Fortunately for him, I am a dual purpose TB affectionado. I free jumped him when I first got him off the track. His lingering racing injuries made a show career an impossibility for him, but he's got the looks requred. He jumped beautifully once he figured out what was required, so I figured he'd have a chance to produce showhorses either on purpose, or as a secondary career. This has happened, his first crop are now nine year olds, and yes, they jump well. Persian Star's lovely attitude and nature comes through, and they jump. He also has several quite nice steeplechasers present in his second dam's produce, in France. I am currently jumping his eight year old daughter locally, low hunters and jumpers, and she is a blast. I raced her for thee years first, and now she jumps. Lovely mare, practically unbeatable locally, lovely style and tons of power, will jump ANYTHING, even being as green as grass. We also have several eventing offspring, with the same sort of jump, as well as others in the show ring, some who have raced first, others who went straight to the shows instead of the track.

              We don't do AI, so you have to be local to us to get a piece of this one. I do not play the "sport horse" or "warmblood" registry games either. Inspect him for yourself, and make your own decisions, if you have a mare who would compliment him well.

                Thanks for all of your replies this is all really helping me.

                I have another question - my mare is not registered. not with JC or any sport horse association. will that be a problem? do stallion's owners like the mares to be registered? would the foal have a chance in a registry?

                    Regarding registration...do you know the mare's bloodlines? If it really matters to you, it is POSSIBLE to get her registered with the JC, but it will cost a minimum of $2000 and I've heard it's a real PITA.

                    As for foal registration...you could get papers from PHR without your mare being registered. Or if you breed to a WB or WB-approved TB, you could most likely get a Certificate of Pedigree for the foal with the mare going into the Pre-mare book of the registry.

                    I would recommend finding a couple of stallions you're interested in and then contacting the owner to discuss your questions/concerns. Most of us are happy to help.

                    PS Here are the links that I promised earlier.

                        no, i do not know her bloodlines. she came to me as a total fluke from an old trainer of mine, we knew practically nothing about her at the time.

                          I am trying to think of the registries that will inspect and approve her based on NO bloodline history and proof at all??? I think only AWR and AWS will, and then you also have the option of getting a Proof of Pedigree from PHR (Performance Horse Registry) if you breed her to a TB stallion and the resultant foal is 1/2 TB. That would show his bloodlines and "unknown" for the dam line

                          We stand Guaranteed Gold - a 16.1hh cremello TB stallion so you'd get a dilute colour for your foal if that is of interest to you

                          www.angelfire.com/on3/TrueColoursFarm/GG.html

                          The other possible option is our other stalion - Winner - who is a 17.1hh HZ grey Polish WB stallion and is 54% TB in his lineage. He is Gold Premium with the CSHA (Canadian Sport Horse) and that foal would get Half Bred CSHA papers - again - as a Proof of Pedigree only through the sire line

                          He can be seen at:

                          http://www.angelfire.com/on3/TrueCol...rm/Winner.html

                          I am not sure what other registries also offer "Half" papers if the mare isnt inspected / approved - maybe someone else can chime in and let us know. That would then open up a few other breed options to you as well

                            any of the WB registries (AWR, RPSI, Old/ISR etc) will inspect the mare. For any of them the foal will just not get main papers/will get a COP for the sire side and and damside will of course read unknown. With Arabs you could get half Arab papers since the Arab registry only cares about the half that is Arabian.

                              Registration for sport discipline bred horses are not important. They are not necessary to compete.

                                true but it IS generally easier to sell a foal with papers/proof of pedigree (sire) and for people that want to compete at breed shows for year end awards.

                                  Do you want a hunter or a jumper? What are your mare's strengths? What are her weaknesses?

                                  Generally speaking, I like AFR, Coconut Grove, and Castle Cove. I haven't seen any Triple Twist babies but would be very tempted if I wanted a jumper and had the right mare -- love the Bonne Nuit lines.

                                      she's a jumper, so she has that "jumper-y" ride. she's very sweet on the ground. conformation wise, she's built slightly downhill. you can't tell u/s but she's built very butt-high and has sort of a longer body than I usually like.
                                      other than that I can't really think of anything I'd like to improve with a stallion

                                      ETA: it wouldn't matter to me what the foal came out as. hunter or jumper, wouldn't matter.

                                        the foal wouldn't be competing at any breed shows, just local A/AA shows. I'm not too concerned with registering the foal in any breed organizations necessarily, I was just curious whether it was impossible without knowing my mares lines.
