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!

  • ISR/OLD Stallion "Amazing"

    Anyone know more about him? Seen him in person or out competing? Does he have the personality that it looks like he does (very sweet?)

    Anyone have any offspring? I know he is young, so I was curious to find out more info.

    I like him a lot and am seriously considering him for my Tb mare this year. His owner is super nice and I am sure would be happy to answer any questions you may have. I love the pics where he is laying in the stall like a big puppy dog with her. If that is a reflection of his personality, then sign me up

      I love Amazing too. I think he has a wonderful combination pedigree of Jump and good temperment that should be super for Hunters and breeders with TB mares.

      He does look like a big puppy dog too, but a gorgeous one!

        We have a mare in foal to him for April (foal is reserved already in utero) and we're very excited to meet this baby. It's his first crop and I *think* he has 8 or 10 foals coming? Ahna would be glad to give the scoop I am sure. We also will breed another mare this coming year.

        I like him a ton because 1. it's VERY hard to find a stallion, particularly a jumper-bred stallion, that has all the jump but actually moves good for the hunters. He has both. 2. Temperament, handled daily and ridden by ammy 3. Breeding, such a nice pedigree.

        Also, a well-known hunter trainer/rider called me last year after a show that he was at that Amazing attended and was going crazy, wanting to make sure that we "knew about this new fantastic hunter stallion" - I said not only do we know, we already have a mare bred to him! LOL He said Amazing is insanely attractive and has extremely good leg conformation as well. He was very taken with him and he's not easy to impress.

        So, we're anxious to see the first crop! We'll be sure to post pics when ours arrives, April 19 is the "due date". She was in foal first try btw, so his semen was very good also and Ahna is a delight to deal with.

          I saw him at his ISR/Old NA stallion inspection. He was an angel--perfectly behaved and calm. He is a very good jumper.

            I have an older Holstiener mare in foal to Amazing for an April 2011 baby. Ahna is extremly nice and very easy to deal with. So far by his pictures and recent videos he is a hunter star in the making! So excited to see what him and my girl come up with, a jumping bean i hope! This is also her first foal and being older, Amazing got her in foal on the first try. Highly recomended to have Amazing in your breeding program. Will post pictures once baby is here.

              Know him and have ridden him (rode him at his licensing) and he is a doll!


              • #8
                He is actually KWPN, but is approved with ISR/Old NA. We imported him from Holland as a foal. I have not been around him since he was sold, but he was very quiet minded and easy here.

                  First of all, THANK you so much for all the wonderful comments on my kid and our new breeding program! I just wanted to say a couple things, since of course my opinion is totally biased and probably not the objective opinion the OP was looking for

                  The one thing I will say, is that the temperament you see on the videos is absolutely 100% indicative of Amazing's true personality. He is one of the sweetest, most sensible horses I have ever known. Everyone that works with him from farriers, to vets, to riders seems to fall in love with him and the general consensus is that everyone wants to hug him! He's really a big overgrown pony.

                  As for foals, Signature is right-we are expecting around 10 foals from a wide variety of lovely mares starting in April. We have an All the Gold mare here in foal and I can't wait to see these babies! As they start arriving, we'll be getting a better idea of what he is passing along, so check the website for updates.

                  Again, thank you so much for the positive comments!

                        Do you who know Amazing, or breed in hunter land, foresee his foals to be marketable?

                          Annie's beloved mare, Rio's Roxy, was purchased by Ahna to be bred to Amazing this year for a 2012 baby. I LOVE HIM and will probably get sucked in to buying that baby!

                              Funny, I was rechecking this thread and going to ask the exact same question.

                                Hillside and TTP,

                                at this point in the year we are weighing the options as to what is the best way to fulfill Amazing's stallion requirements. There are several factors to consider and I really love the idea of going the performance route since he was ultimately purchased to be my show horse. As the time draws closer, if one of the testing formats looks to be a better option, then that's the way we'll go.

                                    I don't usually breed (I don't have the facility to accommodate the young ones), but look for lightly started 3-4 yr olds. However, Signature (who posted on here) certainly does, and I have yet to see her or her partner breed to a stallion that is not highly marketable in the hunter-world (and why most of her foals sell in-utero or before they are yearlings).

                                    I will certainly be on the lookout for an Amazing foal in a few years who has been started u/s.

                                      We do feel with his type, breeding, looks, jump and movement he is very marketable. It's particularly hard to find one that jumps like that but also moves extremely well.

                                      Sometimes we do breed to what some might consider more unorthodox stallions because we're looking to strengthen a mare very specifically where she needs it to produce what we're looking for. It may seem weird to some but there is a method and long thought process/planning behind it! So far so good. But with Amazing, he is more obviously a good all-around solid choice who hopefully should be suitable for good variety of mares.

                                        Can one safely double up with Voltaire? I do not see it done--but than the Dutch do not use linebreeding as intensely as some others it seems. We have a mare, by Oxford whose dam sire is Voltaire, who might work with this handsome (and relatively local) boy. TIA
