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.

        I have foals by Wildwych Eclipse (14.1HH) and Ardceltic Art (15HH) both are lovely, correct and exceptional temperaments (my favorite foal crop to date)...and both are purebred Connemaras from my Weser Ems approved Connemara Mares.

        I have met Chardonnay and he is perhaps my favorite GRP in N.A. I have not seen any foals though.

          You should look at my weser-ems pony, Burberry. He is the smallest licensed stallion at 14hh
          with all GRP bloodlines. He has several generations of pony behind him and combines the breeding dynasties of Black Boy and Constantin. He is a beautiful, uphill mover with a fabulous temperment amd work ethic. When I searched last year for the mare I wanted to breed to him, I choose a 15.1hh mare. I would be happY to tell you more aboit him.

              I really want to aim for under the magic 14.3 with the foal... so smaller the stallion the better! Chardonnay is also too big I think. Burberry I like a lot, but I dont think would improve her through the neck (she is a TB). Maybe a GRP with a lot of welsh or arab blood? Im a huge fan of Makuba which has this, but no guarantee on height with him.

                Not sure what you are trying to improve in the neck, but Burberry is very correct in the neck. I also have his full sister and two half sisters, and all are very correct. I do have a Chardonnay colt who is a stallion prospect, but I am not sure how Chardonnay throws as far as size. Lots of nice Welsh in this country, but few are approved. Why dint you post pics of your mare...

                  I would take a chance on using Burberry on a small thoroughbred mare. Hopefully she will not produce more size than you hope to get.. as I am sure she comes from larger horses in prior generations. If it is a first foal that might work for you regrading size. Burberry has a lot of good qualities, and is a good mover with a good stride.

                  In thoroughbreds low set necks can be a bit tough to fix. I have seen Ewe Necks get to be pretty necks with good consistent training, but if you begin with less than you desire, don't be surprised if it comes back to haunt you later.

                  I would put greater value in looking for strength through the loin and hind quarter...and good legs and feet.

                  I think for sport pony I would prefer the influence of the connemara over some of the other smaller breeds... for soundness...for strength..for natural jump... braveness... and more.

                  Just a few thoughts to toss around.
                  Be happy. Go for healthy.


                  Here is a lovely story of a connemara stallion that backs up some of the observations I have noted on connemaras. I just think they have more to offer for the "riding pony" than many other small breed choices... and that is just personal taste of course.

                    hmm. maybe I need to rethink connemaras for her.. Ive always loved thme but thought maybe keeping it refined would be the way to go. She is always a hard mare to find the right stallion for because she could go so many ways..she LOVES to jump, really had a talent for eventing, has too much knee action for hunters, has even done team penning.
                    Ill start hunting in that direction......any links you think I should see would be appreciated..

                      Although he's not listed, Belafonte d'Avalon is the first American born and bred German Riding Pony to be fully approved Weser-Ems . He completed the 30 Day Stallion Pony Test in November with exceptional scores. You can see more information on him on our website and you can see the video of his inspection on YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QIJZn...layer_embedded

                      I am in the process of finishing up editing another video of the dressage portion and the stadium portion of the testing and will hopefully have that up in the next few days. Send me a private email for more information

                        I have seen some really incredible large Welsh cobs. Not the typical, Welsh pony we think of but the true Cob. Have you looked for any of them?

                                Did you want to go Weser-Erms with the GOV Oldenburg or Oldenburg -NA?

                                As far as Welsh stallions...

                                I like Providence, he is Oldenburg -NA approved.

                                Burberry and Belafonte d'Avalon are Weser-Erms/GOV Oldenburg approved.

                                I thought of Stibby-Me Weser-Erms approved, but he is 14.2 hands - so would be too tall for your mare.


                                I wish my 11.2H welsh stallion "Indy" hadn't missed the Old -NA inspection (due to trainer conflicts) as the OLD-NA person I was emailing with, including some attendees, judges, and site owner at Hilltop Farms really loved his pictures and wanted him to attend. I WILL be aiming him in 2011.

                                  What height do you want to end up with, and dressage movement or hunter, or jumper? I have been on the same quest and I know some of the best ponies. And yes, some have already been mentioned.

                                    Shes Oldenburg NA MMB... I was wanting to aim for the foal to finish true pony size, but looking at the connemaras I may have to think on it. The mare has a very nice jump so I dont know if I want to go with this for a nice kid size h/j.

                                      I think one of the under-used for Weser-Ems breeding is *Wedderlie Mardi Gras. Your much more likely to stay pony sized with him as well. He is a lovely mover, and has been extremely successful in the show ring. He stamps his offspring SO strongly in many respects. Every Mardi I've met has been very sweet and personable too (as is Mardi himself). He is Weser-Ems approved.

                                      FWIW, you've seen pictures of my Mardi son, who is pure Welsh, and he is a MOVER! I can't say enough about how much I adore him in every aspect.

                                      If you go with a 14-14.2 hand stallion, your cutting it really close to getting a "hony".

                                        Here is a site with a wide variety of Connemaras offered for sale. Quality may vary and not all of the vendors have the slickest fanciest photos. Still fun to browse through though. Clifden offers sales. Might be fun to attend one at some point in the future.

                                        I also check through the north american registries and see what is available in North America. Just browse around. Personally prefer to see statistics over stallion promoters. The proof is in the progeny.
