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.

  • Any results or observations from the Spy Coast hosted YHS show?

    Standout young horses? Standout groups of get? Format of the shows?

    Anything? Family matters prevented, but I really wanted to go watch. Hope all the spectators and attendees had a lovely weekend.

    The stallion show was fabulous. I was hoping to see SCF's newest acquisition and he was a surprise add to the lineup. He's definitely a sports car!

      If you have a few minutes and don't mind sharing, which stallions were in the show? Did they show them under saddle, over a few fences, or in hand or some of each?

      I'd love to see these YHS shows take off, and especially if they can incorporate aspects like stallion shows as well. I really would have loved to go.

        Everyone at NAS and SCF would like to thank all participants for a wonderful show on Saturday. The show was a great success and the overall quality of the horses was exceptional. We apologize for the delay in finalizing the scores Saturday but we had to make sure that they were accurate. The final official scores and qualification results will be posted on line shortly. A special thank you to Dr. Etta Bradecamp and Rood and Riddle, YJC, BWP, ESP, J&D Wood and a special thank you to everybody at Spy Coast Farm for hosting another wonderful event.

          I had a very nice time at the show with my three year old filly. The facility was beautiful, the staff wonderful, and lunch was delicious. The stallion show was interesting, each stallion was shown in hand and discussed.

          I would be very happy to attend again and hope that the shows continue especially here in Lexington.

              It was just a small introduction to most of Spy Coast's stallions (two are in EU) along with 2 others from Jump Start Farm. The stallions presented were:

              Far West (Muguet du Manoir/Amour du Bois/Centaure due Bois) He's a grand old man (93 model) whom I have a soft spot for. He was a finalist in the French 4 & 5 yr old Cycle Classique before he was imported. He then went on to compete at the GP level up and down the east coast for a number of years very successfully before being retired in 2010.

              Vision (Clinton/Alexis Z/Pinocchio). He's the only fully licensed BWP stallion in the US by Clinton and he brings this blood to us in a very rideable package. He's also gorgeous, tall, and has very good conformation. He was jumping at Level 8 before an injury prematurely ended a very promising career. I had the chance to see some of his foals and they are leggy and very friendly.

              Bretagne VDL (Cardento/Indorado/Nimmedor) He's just 5 and qualified for the 5 yr old young jumper championships with very little showing. He's a bay with a modern build and good looks. He, to me, screamed "Sunday horse".

              Baldev (Namelus R/Dageraad/Triton) - He is the newest addition to SCFs lineup and he did not disappoint. I was hoping to get to see him and he was a last minute add. He is a sports car. He's leading the 5 yr old Young Jumpers Standings with just 4 shows under his belt.

              SCF Renaissance (Lux Z/Silvio/Landadel) He's a very modern blood type with a fancy exterior that I watched hunt a GP course in Wellington last year shortly after he was imported. He's a young stallion that they have high hopes for. I've been in his stall and he's an absolute gentleman.

              King de Coquerie (Voltaire/Quidam de Revel/Quastor) He's a sizeable stallion with a regal presence about him. Very harmonious in his build.

              Balta'Czar (Alla'Czar/Columbus/Condino) Not sure who is more known, Balta'Czar or his famous dam Jete. A very versatile stallion that really stamps his progeny.

                      Well, my Cassini II x Contendro gelding received several 9's as well as a 10 for scope from one judge, but the other also gave him some 7s, so his score landed where it did. But it should not surprise you that he has plenty of scope being 75% Holsteiner by bloodlines.

                      I felt there were some things that could be improved, but all in all it was a fun day and a good experience. I was a little disappointed in the "stallion show" portion. Their horses are obviously lovely, but I would have liked to see them under saddle, or at least trot in hand, rather than just stand up and walk.

                        It's not a stallion selection keuring! ;o)

                        I know that for many of the 2 yr olds it was their first time in a chute. Honestly, I would rather see that and lower scores because of lack of experience than having fully prepped 2 yr olds in the chute...they're still so young and gangly why put the huge pressure on them at that stage. I had one that jumped well/qualified for the Young Horse Championships, and one I feel like hiding for a while, just still figuring out where his wheels are (though qualified for the Championships In-Hand division).

                        The 3 yrs and up group I cannot speak to, but it's good to remember that it is still a relatively small show at the moment that has its gears turning with a lot of momentum behind it, but still it is in its early stages. The judges were fair in their scores and I think truly saving the 9 scores for something incredible and deserving...and bushkn's was definitely one of those! (damn he's a gelding!!!)

                        Would love to see some of your's at the show. It is an inviting format and certainly a great way to get these young ones a little taste of showing without so much pressure. Also a good way to market/network and get some exposure.


                        Curious to know what you are getting at with your comment though?

                          Wasn't actually getting at anything. There were 2 , 3 and 4 year olds in the free jumping chute and several of them . I was just curious that not a single horse broke out of the 8's that's all.

                          Would have loved to participate but 9 hours is too much of a haul just to free jump.

                            Congrats Bushkn......Not surpising your Cassini II / Contendro jumped well. My Cassini II / Lavaletto / Acord II mare jumps like a cat and has been purchased by buyers on Long Island as a GP horse. I bred another full sister (3 yrs old) to this one and she will have a foal from Livello before she embarks on her show career.

                            I also have a 4 yr old gelding by Roller Coaster / Cassini II / Lavaletto / Acord II that is an incredible athlete.

                            Cassini II makes good horses......

                              Bayhawk totally off topic but since your using him What sort of mares to you think would be best crossed with Livello? What would you look towards him to improve vs what do you feel he needs in a mare ?

                                I can only tell you what I know about the family as I am good friends with the breeders of Livello's mother. I am not personally using him but the person who bought my Cassini II / Lavaletto / Acord II mare is. I think it's a fine idea as I bred this mare and I have intimate knowledge of Livello's mothers. This mare is medium size with a very modern exterior and lots of blood and quickness.

                                This is one of the best motherlines that has ever been produced. The grandmother Biserta was a very special mare. The horses are all tall , framey with powerful movements and they are horses for all people to ride.

                                Limbus was an obvious pick for this motherline as he is a bit smaller , quicker and can sometimes make them a little hot and tricky in the mouth. Perfect motherline for Limbus and there's no wonder Livello is a special stallion.

                                I have bought 4 from them from this exact same line all coming from Biserta.
                                2 stallions
                                Canturo / Acord II / Corde / Raimond
                                Calido / Acord II / Corde / Raimond
                                2 mares
                                Casiro / Canturo / Acord II / Corde / Raimond
                                Classe / Canturo / Acord I / Corde / Raimond

                                The Acord II mare won the Nations Cup in Helsinki. This is one of the best lines of sporthorses you will find anywhere.

                                I would stick with modern mares of today for Livello with enough blood under the rider. Otherwise Livello is correct with very good legs. If your mare is big (16.3 + ) I might select another stallion because Livello's mothers were all very tall.

                                This foal that's being produced will be Livello / Cassini II / Lavaletto / Acord II stamm 318a2 . This is a combination of the motherlines that made Livello and Carlo......two of the top showjumpers today. Should be an interesting baby.

                                Hope that helps !

                                    The schooling/training jump chute scores will no longer be posted due to a change of rules and scoring system within the class (A to F instead of 1 to 10). Our goal is to make this class the least competitive possible but rather focus on the educational value of it for the horses, owners and public. Each owers still recieves a sheet with an evaluation and assesment from the judge but a comparaison between horses becomes irrelevant. For more info, please feel free to contact us directly. Thank you.
