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!

  • Demons Begone & Alydar

    I have heard that Demons Begone has sired many outstanding sporthorses. I am a racing-only sort of person so would like to hear more about this. Also, how about Alydar? Any thoughts on a combination of Alydar AND Demons Begone in a potential sporthorse? This horse was too slow or otherwise looked upon unfavorably by his trainer...

    We have wonderful sport offspring from our TB mare Aly Alice xx, so I can comment very favorably on Alydar's contribution to sport breeding. http://www.sporthorse-data.com/d?z=J...alice&x=21&y=6
    Check back in USEF records; there was a time that Alydar was a leading sire of jumpers.

    I would love more input on Demons Begone, but have nothing to report myself.

      Can't do much better than Alydar for jumper talent in TBs.
      Demons Begone: I don't know anything about him personally; his pedigree does not have any upfront standout names for sporthorse greats except for Hail To Reason and Halo is not of of his sons I want to see with his ill tempement and offspring that tend to be "tough" though not crazy like Halo.

        Love Love Love our Alydar grand-daughter DoUThinkUCanDance. She is by Wheaton. She is athletic and sweet. I am thrilled with her first foal by Escapade and we are waiting for the second one to arrive in April.

          Alydar is one of the best eventing bloodlines, both by analysis and by personal experience (we're running an Alydar topline Intermediate). No experience with the other horse.

            There are quite a ew Alydar sons who show up on the USEF leading sires list in both Jumpers and Eventing.

            Alybrave

            Opposite Abstract

            Probably more, don't recall them all.

            But Alydar produced a lot of offspring. With a high stud fee I doubt any of them were bred for sport and that may be true of the offspring of his sons too.
            With that high a number of available horses it's hard to tell if the success is genetic or just overwhelming numbers who failed racing 101 and needed a new career.

            But some of his line have been a success in Jumpers and that's an accomplishment in the age of the WB.

              Phillip Dutton's event horse Cayman Went was or is an Alydar grandson through Easygoer. He also has Private Account/Damascus on the bottom.

                Demon's Begone has a lovely pedigree, filled with the old line TBs that made good sport horses. There's not a line in his pedigree that doesn't go back to horses who have been proved in sport.

                Juliet's Nurse is one of the best, and so is Gallant Man. Fleet Nasrullah is superior. Cosmah was also the dam of Queen Sucree, who was the dam of Cannonade by Bold Bidder who had world class event horses to his credit. Rambunctious was an excellent hunter sire, and Castle Hyde is by Tulyar (excellent) out of Bold Irish who was also the dam of Leix and Shenanigans.

                Sire's dam goes back to the Secretariat ancestress Cinq a Sept.

                This one definitely one with very promising paper.

                  My #1 hunter, horse of my lifetime and also pain in my ass is by Opposite Abstract. He failed racing 101 by 3 yeas of age and was my 16th Bday present. Opie is now 17 and is still QUITE the handful. Like his famous grandsire, he knows he is good. Don't know what I would without the gorgeous red head in my barn though. He is always honest, a beautiful mover (damn near undefeated in the late 90's and still does well today even against all the WBs), too athletic for his own good and LOVES to show.

                    Opposite Abstract is just as good on the bottom as the top. His dam, K D Princess, was also the dam of Conquistador Cielo, who is a very superior line for FEI lower level eventing. He's got descendants through 4 different stallions. And he seems to be well loved by hunter people.

                      Not trying to steal the thread, but I'm curious

                      Cosmah was also the dam of Queen Sucree, who was the dam of Cannonade by Bold Bidder who had world class event horses to his credit.
                      Please share. Who were the world class event horses. Thanks.

                        Cannonade was the sire of Vorias who was the sire of Debat d'Estruval who was ridden by Jean Teulere and won team gold at the Athens Olympics. Also sire of Caveat, damsire of the 3* horse Parker.

                        Bold Bidder was the grandsire of A Fine Romance tail male; also sire of Spectacular Bid (Mytens/Mighty Magic; Auction Ring who is in the pedigree of Winsome Adante and Withcote Nellie, both Olympic horses, as well as the stallion Formula One, Mount Hagen, grandsire of a 4* horse, Mostly Mischief, and an Italian GP jumper, Ottobre di San Patriginano, along with a couple of others who have gotten 1 and 2* top ten horses.

                          Easygoer also sired some good jumpers. Given HIS stud fee they must have been ones that didn't make it at the track since he didn't stand for sporthorse fees.
