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.

Thanks for being a part of the COTH forums!

  • Best Warmblood Stallion for Jumpers?

    I have a mare in my care (bay with 4 white socks) - 16.2H...and former Grand Prix jumper who got injured. Her owners want to breed her. She is an expensive import and $$ isn't a problem. Who is the BEST jumper stallion we should look at? She's 14 and no previous foals that I know of. Could try frozen first, although fresh would be better. (I'm thinking an Olympic type that is trainable and popular too...)

      Well, without knowing her bloodlines and what her strengths and weaknesses are it is really hard to make a suggestion.

        Ditto

        First you have to know what studbook in the US you will be presenting the foal to. That will limit which stallions to pick from. Is she already breeding approved with a studbook?

        The best jumper stallions is the best one for your mare. Having not ever been bred this is hard to decipher. The people who will be able to help you will need to know what the mares needs, how she rides, breed, size, pedigree, and lastly what level of jumper you are wishing to produce. Without that information everyone is throwing crap on the wall to see what sticks.

        Tim

        P.S. What is the rest of the pedigree of your Caresino. I have seen a couple in Germany.

          OK - does it ever occur that they just want names, and an explanation as to why they are suggested, and that the mare owners can do the remaining legwork themselves? And if they do have any questions, they will come back and ask them?!

            Well, those of us who would like to spend our time giving suggestions might want to avoid suggesting something like a 1/2 brother, or even the mare's father. If we are going to invest our time we would like to at least make it a semi-educated suggestion.

              My top choice for proven Grand Prix stallion would be:

              Darco (sire of Grand Prix winners: Saphire, TARCO VAN TER MOUDE, Parco, Ublesco, etc. and a big winner in his own right)

                    Darco is unquestionably one of the most prolific international level jumper sires in modern times. Problem is that he is dead and, from what people here have said, his frozen semen isn't very good.

                    If I were going to just throw out a name, I find Willemoes very attractive, but not well proved in North America through offspring performance--yet.

                    It's kind of hard to find a well proved show jumping sire standing in North America simply because really high level show jumpers are imported. There is Edgar's stallion who is the sire of Lantinus, but I am not sure of the name.

                    If they want to use imported semen, Diamant de Semilly or Nabab de Reve should be considered.

                    For sure, the stallion selected ought to go well with the mare, and the registry should be considered.

                      OK, then the best answer is to look at the WBFSH stallion ranking.
                      I'm sure this is not of great help... but as everybody said, we know nothing about the mare

                        Breeder's don't have a 'favorite' stallion that they prefer? There have been threads in the past, 'Who would you breed to for an Olympic Jumper?' that were loaded with great suggestions. The recent negativity on this board, particularly towards American breeders, is getting old. This thread is also being started by a third party, so maybe they don't want to divulge all the information on this mare.

                        I think Cunningham is an interesting option for fresh semen. I though Cassini I was stunning when I recently visited, and so much of that same presence is evident in Cunningham. Quality, ridability, and power in those lines. Quite proven, as well.
                        There are also some stallions that I am not familiar with, but seem impressive at first glance, in the COTH Stallion issue.
                        I've also always liked Mezcalero, another fresh option as she is an older, presumably maiden mare.

                          I have liked what I have seen of the Cicera's Icewater foals..

                          I also like Concerto Grosso who also stands at the same farm.

                          I hear Con Caletto is coming back to the US and he is lovely.

                          I also agree about Cunningham and Mez.

                            Not to argue, because I am sure you are right, BUT... according to this thread (http://www.chronofhorse.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=248829) a poster on here has used his semen and been successful. If money was not an object and could use the best repro vet available it is something I would have to try.

                              Nabab de Reve does not ship to North America.

                                The reason there is some negativity pointed at American breeders is exemplified in the original post. No photo , no bloodline , no riding or jumping characteristics , no info about the family , no info about desired improvements , no nothing.

                                People in the know wouldn't give an opinion based off of "bay mare , 4 white socks and 16.2" for fear of looking like a fool at the mere suggestion of a stallion for her.

                                  I disagree. But I'm willing to give the OP the benefit of the doubt that there was a reason for excluding the additional information that you are seeking. You, are not, as you are skeptical of American breeders as a whole, and I am not. Oh well
