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!

    I have heard positive comments about him in all categories! Just look at those scores from his stallion licensing! In fact, I have decided to take the leap and breed my maiden mare to him!

      I have not seen him in person but love him from his videos and pictures. I am expecting a Sir Gregory foal at the end of April so can give you some feedback on him/her when I do.

        He's out here in So Cal showing right now, and oddly enough his rider is staying at the hotel I work at. She said she absolutely loves riding him, although I didn't ask for specifics (not a dressage person). Though she was extremely flabbergasted when she found out I randomly knew who they were!

            The only time I have seen Sir Gregory under saddle was in Germany at Rastede as a three year old. The atmosphere there can get "beyond" crazy at times with jumping, vaulting, carriage horses all going on in a small area. He handled the atmosphere extremely well. That is saying a great deal for a three year old stallion.

              This is in his mareline, but one of my trainers rode a Don Gregory gelding for me a couple of years ago, and recommended him to purchase. She said that she had found the Don Gregory offspring to have great AA temperaments.

              In the end I decided not to import, so I can't say personally, but since you asked about temperament I thought I'd pass that second hand info along.

                And interestingly, Sir Gregory is linebred to the dam of Don Gregory (his dam Premiere is the result of mating 2 half-siblings, Don Gregory with Pandora). Plus, SG has an additional line to Donnerhall through Sir Donnerhall. I would think that that strong line breeding to these particular horses would result in a very rideable and sensible horse.

                    Where in SoCal is he showing?
                    From the Oldenburg website:

                    February 9, 2011 - Dreamscape Farm's Sir Gregory is the Open High Score Champion at the Golden State Dressage Premiere Show

                    Jennifer and Armin Arnoldt of Dreamscape Farm were thrilled to report that their young Oldenburg stallion, Sir Gregory (Sir Donnerhall x Premiere (Don Gregory)), not only won all of his classes, but did it with excellent scores!

                    Jennifer reports, "We were very happy to hear that Sir Gregory had a really good show his first time out in California. At the Golden State Dressage Premiere Show at Rancho Murieta Equine Center, Sir Gregory under rider Dominique Culham-Buckland won all his classes at 1st level, the judges were FEI judges Joan Macartney and Lois Yukins. Sir Gregory not only won all his classes but he had the highest score of the division with a 73.51% which was the highest score of the entire show!

                    And interestingly, Sir Gregory is linebred to the dam of Don Gregory (his dam Premiere is the result of mating 2 half-siblings, Don Gregory with Pandora). Plus, SG has an additional line to Donnerhall through Sir Donnerhall. I would think that that strong line breeding to these particular horses would result in a very rideable and sensible horse.
                    Yes. He has Donnerhall twice in the 3rd generation, and the Graphit daughter Granate twice in the 3rd generation. Here is his pedigree - http://www.paardenfokken.nl/pedigree.php?horseid=287458 .

                      I agree with everything Chris said. Getting Donnerhall doubled up with the G-line through Graphit? Nothing better in my book. Rideability plus a GREAT work ethic. He's on my short list!

                        This does not relate to Sir Gregory's temperament, but saw a half brother...as in same dam....by Sandro Hit go through the Oldenburg Licensing last November. This colt was licensed and was a very nice mover and beautiful stallion. The genes in that family are very good.

                          And he was one of the higher sellers to at that auction. I believe he sold for 88,000 Euros. He was very pretty, a similar mover to SG, maybe not as good in the neck. IMHO.

                            Well, I have seen both in person and I actually think I preferred the Sandro Hit version. He is not yet under saddle, and nothing against Sir Gregory, but sometimes Sir Donnerhall is a better cross and sometimes the sire Sandro Hit.

                              I have seen him in person as Jennifer showed him to us and all I can say was WOW!!!!!! He was SUCH a GENTLEMAN in the barn and going out to work (he looooooooved getting his nose squished and smooched ). Then when she put him to work (lunged) he listened to her 100% and just......... FLOATED. I really really like this horse!!! Definitely one I will breed to in the not so distant future.

                              My 2 cents.

                                Glad to see he is getting such a jumpstart Granate's dam Aufnahme lived on our farm for a few years and according to my father she already had that lovely personality and temperament (having 50%+ refinement-blood that is something you really want to look for, the good brain with the performance blood).
                                I closely know an awesome Sir Gregory - Rubinstein - Almeo yearling and he has got that temperament from both ends. Mellow without being dull, smart without being a smart---, Movement and conformation come on top. Love him

                                  So good to hear this about the offspring! I am eagerly awaiting my Sir Gregory x Idocus foal in June. I have heard nothing but good about Sir G, but have no personal experience.

                                    So Dutch, is this the same Idocus mare that had the Sir Donnerhall in 2006 (from the other thread)? If so, that will be an interesting comparison (father vs son).

                                      Love that stallion! (well from pics and video since I have not seen him in person)
                                      I have a Don Gregory mare who has the best temperament and rideability, so my experience with these bloodlines is a very positive one. The mare was shown to PSG/I1 but could've easily been a top hunter, it just wasn't my thing!

                                      I also got a lovely filly out of her by Sandro Hit, and she too has great rideability and a no-nonsense attitude, not at all hot as most would have predicted the SH to throw into the equation.

                                        FWIW, I have yet to personally deal with a hot SH offspring or grandkid. Mine are all quiet and if anything, a bit lazy.
