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!

    Carracci's owners are fabulous people. We were talking at the GP the other night and got on the subject of stallions, which is when he came up. As I said, they are not actively standing him at this point, but in talking to them I believe that if there is interest they would like to do so. Don't know how long he'd be free or "at cost", but even with a fee he's still a good pedigree to have to use, eh? I am definitely going to see him in two weeks - will get photos then!

      Yes ! And since he's already approved with the Verband , it's just simple activation and appearence at an inspecton I think. Have them call the office in KY to be sure.

        I checked the FN database. He has only 10 registred offspring in Germany, one did very well under Kutscher (China Blue). He did his mperformancetest in 1998 with 98 for dressage and 124 for jumping. His breedingvalue for jumping is 134 with an offcourse low reliability. He was in German times owned by Gestut Dobel.
        Found a picture of him:

            Donna told me the same thing. I'm so glad I have 2 mares going to him.

                    Cartier Van Schluttershof

                    Cartier Van Schuttershof (Caretino X Cantus X Landgraf X Fokus II, stamm 8769) is just retired to stud at Prairie Pines Sporthorses. Bred by Gerd Magens, he is out of a very successful performance stamm, who produced Holsteiner Verband approved international show jumper stallion Come On (full sister, Kathy Come On is Cartier's dam), Olympic bronze medallist Nobless M, international show jumpers Fleur, Cheers Cassini and Big Sir. Cartier had a super show jumping career: after a successful 5 and 6 YO campaign in Europe he came to North America as a junior jumper with Emily Skoggard, then he continued as a successful Grand Prix horse with Willie Tynan and finally finished with Hailey Waters as a junior jumper.
                    As he was imported out of Holstein as a youngster, he is SBS and AES approved in Europe, he will be presented to several major breed associations, including AHHA, this coming summer and fall.
                    He had a few foals in Europe - but as far as what he is going to in the breeding shed and what kind of demand there will be - it's hard to tell. I am hoping this medium-size, compact and powerful stallion will be a perfect match for most of the Lotus T daughters who tend to be very tall and heavy on the "L"-line.

                              I went over to Diamond Edge Farm yesterday to pick up Carracci semen. Aside from being absolutely stunning and very well put together, what a lovely temperament on this stallion - think super sweet gelding with a couple of additional parts. Both Christina and Sean said that Carracci is passing along this temperament to his kids, even the boys who have remained in tact are easy to handle. His first US-born kids will be started this spring.

                              Kinsella has pointed us in the direction of very gracious and knowledgeable owners and a high quality stallion, for both jumper and hunter breeders (thank you Angela!) Since he competed in the jumper ring, I quizzed Christina about Carracci for hunters - her eyes just positively lit up . She said she would have loved to compete Carracci in the hunter ring but b/c of the Children's/Junior rule, had to compete the stallion in the jumpers.

                                While I don't necessarily agree with the stallion in the hunters rule, I do understand it. Safety first and all that... But I personally am SO glad they didn't geld Carracci and make him a hunter!

                                And just to make sure it is clear, neither Donna nor I have any financial interest in this horse. We don't own him, stand him, ride him, or gain from him in any way. We just happen to like him A LOT, and we want to see him get used in this country before it's too late...

                                  As a holsteiner girl, his bloodlines and the fact he's produced high level jumpers with an extremely limited EU crop of a whopping 10 says quite a bit! Couple that with his exterior and his mind/temperament I jumped at putting 2 mares to him.
