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!

  • Info on DWB Stallion named Legend?

    I am trying to do some research on my mom's horse so she can have the accurate info when she sells him. When we bought him she was told he was by the dutch stallion Legend and a Tb mare named Leaves to Leaves. Supposedly, the stallion was bred at the quarantine facility in Pa (I suppose they have to be tested?). I did a google search but come up with several possiblities and can't figure out which would be correct. Her horse is a seven year old so if the stallion was imported then it would have been around 7-8 yrs ago.

    Belinda Nairn-Wertman and her husband Bill used to have Legend at their farm in PA. You might try googling their web site (Inspo? maybe).

    Edited to add: Legend was registerd NRPS and not KWPN

      I have seen him sometimes identified as "Great Legend" or "Grand Legend". We have a filly by him (think she's five). He was gelded quite a number of years back I think & is available by frozen only. The last I knew (maybe 3 or 4 years ago) he was competing 4th level in dressage. Our filly has a full sister, so that makes at least 3 offspring.

        Thank you! I searched under Great Legend and his info came up. 17.2! Evalee what have your offspring turned out like? What discipline are yours best suited for? This guy has done dressage, hunters and eventing all with great results. I see him more as an lovely amatuer hunter. He is slow and steady and all his dressage work makes him very rideable to the fences. I will have to see if I can find some results from Great/Grand Legend.

          Marnie is very sweet, very people oriented, very quiet & easy. She can be terribly stubborn. She has largish ears & when she doesn't want to do something she sticks them straight out to the side & just plants her feet. We laugh at her & tell her she looks like a mule. She IS a chestnut mare, after all - cute little stripe on her face. Ali says she would make a good hunter. She is 16.1 & still growing. I understand she looks like her dam, more than her sire.

          Marnie's full sister was bred by the same woman that bred Marnie, but we don't own the sister. The sister has been in training with Missie (??is that her name) Ransehousen (Jessica's daughter). I think she is pointed toward hunters. I understand the sister looks more like Legend - anyway, according to Ali, the sister is quite distinctly different conformation-wise from Marnie ... you wouldn't really guess they are sisters.

          I don't know if there are any registration options (other than, say, AWR) since Legend is a breed not much seen in the US & I don't think he is approved for any other registry. Ali says Legend was competing Intermediare the last she knew.

              That is very, very interesting because I am pretty sure that is the pedigree for the Legend this thread is about, but I was pretty sure he was NOT KWPN. H-m-m-m-m. I sure don't know. Brings up an interesting point here ... what registry is he?

                I bred to this stallion twice.
                Got two very talented, extremely difficult horses out of it. But it could have been the mare. She produced several very nice horses by different stallions, but when mated to this one, she produced really hard, aggressive, difficult ones. Bad match I guess.

                Anyways. He was registered NRPS.
                I got NRPS papers for both foals out of the TB mare.

                This was a long time ago, when he first stood at stud, 11 years ago, in 1997. The first colt I bred would now be 10 this year, so if your mom's horse was bred while the stallion was in quarantine then he would be 10 or 11 this year, as I am not certain if I bred to him the year he was imported or the year after.

                He was indeed 17.2 and a gorgeous sabino chestnut with outstanding movement, talented and shown to at least PSG before he was gelded and sold. Very well bred Gelderlander stallion. I have photos of him if you would like to see them. I cannot post them here as I am not a permium member or whatever, but I can certainly send them to you.

                  KWPN is arised by a fusion of VLN and NWP in 1969.
                  A small group did not want go along, but chose for the maintenance of the original type of the gelders horse. Space has been made within the KWPN.
                  Within KWPN you can now distinguish three directions: riding horse, harness Horse and gelders horse. There is interesting Article on the site http://home.claranet.nl/users/lijssel/nederlnd/evl.htm
                  but than of course it is in Dutch witch is my native language what can explain that my English is terrible

                      The information I had FROM LEGEND'S OWNERS was that he was gelded "so he could concentrate on his show career" & that he was at 4th level at the time. This was around 4 years ago. He did go on to higher levels after that, but according to the info I have he was gelded before he reached Intermediare or PSG.

                      How were you able to get NRPS papers? Do they not inspect? Or do they inspect in this country? Or are they a division of KWPN as I think Daynhart is saying? If NRPS is a division of KWPN, then do you go to a KWPN inspection?

                        NRPS and KWPN

                        Nore NRPS, nore KWPN is a race. They both are Sportregisters studbooks with different standards but it is possible that a horse has a KWPN-registration and a NRPS-registration. Just like the horse I am looking for.
                        Daynhart is KWPN 90.5178 and NRPS NRA 940010*90. He is the father of my mare, Nicol. Nicol is a KWPN, however Daynhart was a licensed stallion for the NRPS and he was never licensed for the KWPN. The first 2 digits of the KWPN-registrationnumber is the year of birth while for the NRPS it is the last 2 digits.

                        The NRPS has 3 Breeding Registers:
                        - Dutch riding pony with Arabian blood (NPA) Ponies must have a minimum of 25% Arabian blood and a maximum height of 1.48m
                        - Dutch riding horse with (Anglo-) Arabian blood (NRA)
                        Horses must have a minimum of 12,5% Arabian or Anglo-Arabian blood:
                        This register can be divided into the category Riding horses small size (1.48rn - 1.57m) and Large size Riding horses (from 1.57m).
                        - Anglo-Arabian thoroughbreds (AA) a closed register; only open to English or Arabian thoroughbreds
                        http://www.inspo.com/registration.htm

                        KWPN horses have been split into three distinct breeding directions:
                        - the Riding type (RP): improved blood (Gelderlander and Groninger horses improved with Oldenburger, Holsteiner, Thoroughbred, etc.)
                        - the Gelders type (GP): cannot exceed more than 12,5% improved blood, of witch maximum 6,25 % may be American Saddlebred or Hackney
                        - the Harness type (TP): more than 75% Hackney or American Saddlebred blood

                          Also looking for registry on this horse?

                          I realize this is an old thread, but I also know someone with a Legend baby (two actually, both beautiful girls). I have been trying to find a link to his registry listing and cannot. Jleegriffith, where did you find your info on him?

                            I am sure no one is watching this thread any more, but I have a Legend mare (1999) out of a DWBxTB dam.

                            She is wonderful. I would love another one just like her. I ride her dressage (3RD) and she is great but have jumped her in the past, and she was nice over the fences too.

                            She is big (hence my name) 17.1/2 and has a hard time with collection but tries her heart out. I am not a mare person, but I would take a mare like this anytime.

                            I have a couple of pictures of Legend. He looks a lot like my mare. Big and chestnut. He was imported and had another name in Germany, cant remember what it was at this time.

                            She has a couple of issues. She either has shivers or EPSSM, either way it is very manageable. She also had a problem with a pregnancy earlier in life and can no longer be bred.

                            Let me know if you are interested in any of the info I have.
