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.

  • Dressage stallion suggestions

    Ok...I'm bored at work. I may be getting a new mare (I will know this weekend). She is a lovely Hanoverian mare who unfortunately got injured (pasture accident). Schooled 3rd level and looked like she had the right stuff for GP dressage (as told by several top trainers). Free jumped and is a very good and scopey jumper. Has produced one lovely correct filly already.

    She is VERY tall 17.3 and a touch quirky under saddle (forward and sensitive ride--I like that but not everyone does). Chestnut with sensitive skin. But otherwise she is extremely well put together--very uphill. Three very correct and lovely gaits.

    Here is her pedigree.

    http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/whizzo2

    I'm an eventer--but I would be breeding for re-sale---although I seem to have trouble selling and like to keep everything. I have no doubt I could breed a good jumping horse from her but I'm thinking given her pedigree and her type, I should aim for a dressage sire--that would probably sell more easily than an event foal. (I know what direction I would go for eventing with her but dressage breeding is new to me).

    Right now, I'm thinking For Compliment but am really open to suggestions (either frozen or fresh). What lines typically cross well with her lines?

    I don't have her yet...but I will need to move quickly if I get her...just looking for suggestions from the minds here on COTH.

    It would be much better to post a photo of her so we could see what might need improving.

    I think F line (as in Florestan) is known for throwing excellent brains.

    OMG, I just read the end of your post. For Compliment is by Findmark who is by Florestan! He could work.

    Check out some of the other Florestans too.
    Show me your horse and I will tell you who you are.

      Is For Compliment still available frozen? I have heard it can't be ordered through Schockemohle anymore?

        If I get her...I'll take some photos this weekend. I know it is so hard without any.

        She really is pretty correct--nice shoulder, great angles. Not too long or too short... Big ears

        I'll look at some other F-line stallions (and keep For Compliment high on my list)

          I think you are correct although I've seen it available a few places as "in stock".

            What about Rubignon? That gives you GP dressage with the best of Hannovarian bloodlines - Donnerhall, Rubenstein and Pike Bube.

              Oh my!

              The mare is from the same damline as my hannoverian mare Wildrose (Walt Disney I- Lemon xx).
              They both have St. Pr. Argentella as their 3rd dam. So exciting
              Is your mare's breeder also Zuchtbetrieb Marschalk-Pecksen?

              I've googled to find more horses for their damline, some of them you can find here: <http://www.paardenfokken.nl/family.php?horseid=659962>

              I'm breeding Wildrose to Mighty Magic this year to get an eventer for a friend of mine.

                (She's not mine yet--but hopefully). Yes I think that was her breeder. She was imported as a weanling.

                I'm pretty sure she could produce a nice event horse too...and I might still go that direction. But I do think a dressage foal may be easier to sell and for me to part with


                For an eventer/jumper....I might go with Coconut Grove...he seems to put very sensible minds on the offspring that I've seen. And given the amount of blood in her pedigee (and her conformation/gaits etc.)--crossed with a TB she could produce a top quality eventer. Her dam line is similar to a lot of very good eventers.

                  By the way, if you're looking for F-line stallion, you should check out Fürst Fugger from gestut Sprehe. Wildrose had a good looking and strong moving colt out of him last year. Allthough I don't know for sure how he freezes (We live in Southern Finland so it's quite easy to get fresh from Germany).

                    Another thought might be Sir Shutterfly. My friend has an excellent SS filly. Gaits are good enough for her to do very well at the DSHB shows, including Res Ch GAIG Region 8 Filly. She jumps out of her pasture over a 6' gate. Her brain is wonderful. And she was named US Champion Young Event Horse in hand last year. She's actually a near carbon copy of her daddy except she's grey.

                      A stallion that is reported to reduce size, add type and above average athleticism is Stalypso.

                      Just throwing a name out there that we've considered for some of our taller ladies.

                      Good luck with whatever you decide to do!

                        Unless you already own For Compliment semen or know somebody who has it . . .you probably won't be able to get any For Compliment frozen semen in the U.S. Paul S. doesn't have any more that he'll sell to the US as far as I know . . .

                            I believe Judy Yancey has Fürst Fugger frozen either in stock, or coming in.

                            Edited to add that, other than Absatz in the 4th generation and 5th generations, the OP's mare has a fairly outcrossed pedigree. I might be thinking in terms of linebreeding for that mare. Fürst Fugger would bring in Weltmeyer again, but another option might be to go with Belissimo M or his son Benidetto to bring in the Bolero blood again.

                              He's lovely. Not sure I want to double up on Weltmeyer though. I may look at another son of Fürst-Heinrich.

                              All great suggestions....please keep them coming!

                                "Not sure I want to double up on Weltmeyer though"

                                -That's a good point.

                                What about Bonifatius (Belissimo M-Lauries Crusador xx- Lemon Park)? He was the winner of the 300 day test and seems to be very popular now in Hannover. You woul double up Bolero and Lemon xx. The foal would also have quite al lot of xx in his pedigree.

                                Bonifatius is an option for Wildrose next time when I'm breeding for myself.

                                  Another possibility is Rubino Bellissimo. He brings Bolero blood through his dam, as well as the blood of the great eventing stallion Volturno. And he is by Rubinstein I, who was not only a legendary dressage horse and sire, but also a pretty decent jumper (scored over 124 points in jumping at his 100 day stallion test, finishing in 4th place of 66 horses for jumping). And Rubino Bellissimo is not big (16.1-ish, I believe), so he might help downsize your mare. He is siring lovely, typey foals with good movement and a lot of charm and charisma, and I understand that many are being started under saddle by their amateur owners.

                                    Thanks....I have a lot to think about. The mare's trainer/rider is a good friend of mine so if I get her, she will help me pick the first date.

                                    My friend said of the one thing she would try and improve (although a duplicate of the mare would be perfectly fine is to increase her freedom in her shoulder.

                                    She has very correct gaits but not the extravagant shoulder movement that seems to be all the rage in UL dressage.

                                    Since this foal is for sale....I'm trying to think not just what will be a super foal but what will be a super marketable foal!

                                    Lots to think about.....any thoughts on these two for her?

                                    Fuerstenball or Fidertanz

                                    (San Amour also caught my friend's eye--and he is a hunk)

                                    If I did go for more line breeding....besides the other suggestions here--Sarkozy got my attention. Any thoughts on him? I like a lot of the younger stallions but they are still so unproven.....

                                      I was just going to suggest Sarkozy when I read about increasing shoulder freedom. He supposedly has a very good walk as well, and isn't heavy in type.
