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!

  • Most exciting young dressage stallion in US? Or broodmare producer?

    Who do you think is the most exciting "up and coming" dressage stallion you've seen lately, who is standing in the US?

    And by exciting, I mean who has the most amazingly proven pedigree you've seen, combined with amazing temperament, conformation and movement? Yet this stallion has not yet hit the big time?

    Or, if you wanted to get the absolute best broodmare replacement from your older, favorite mare who is soon to retire, who would you breed to? Who are the best broodmare producers out there right now?

    I have a premium Oldenburg mare (Diamont x premium TB) that has had two really fantastic babies (one filly, one colt). She's starting to get up there and I'm not riding her as much due to family/time etc. Last night my husband said the magic words, "Well if you're not going to ride her much, you really should breed her again."

    Ideas?

        I think one would have to consider, among others:

        Benidetto - great bloodlines, great athlete, super temperament and rideability, and excellent producer

        Olivier - the product of many years of very careful and knowledgeable breeding and has a very interesting and proven pedigree. He is a proven competitor himself and has some nice offspring on the ground.

        Rousseau - great pedigree, super athlete, excellent producer.

        Don Principe - timeless pedigree, super performance and producer

        Royal Prince - excellent pedigree, performance, and producer

          I know he is young but does he have any youngsters on the ground? Also, his pedigree offers a lot of options but can you give an idea of what kind of mare he would do best with?

            He's got 2 crops on the ground that I know of...I'm trying to work a way to go shoot their AWR inspection this year so then there would be photos of his offspring to share with everyone.

            Mom's seen him several times (competing & at his licensing - he got a 9something and is a stunner in person). She might have a better idea of the mare type for him.

            He's by Wagnis (Weltmeyer/Lungau) and then Montreal Maiden is a Canadian Warmblood by Macho (by Matcho AA) and I can't remember her damline - I'll email the AWR office and ask if they can send me his full pedigree and get back to you guys with a link to Paardenfokken.

                If someone is interested in WakeUp, his owner is very honest and straightforward to deal with in regards to discussing mares that will suit him. I have a 3 year old in training with Jana, and I've seen WakeUp on his home turf quite a few times. Super, super nice boy (I breed for jumpers, not dressage, so I'm not speaking to his ability, only personality). Several of the local breeders here have had foals by him and I think Jana has some of his babies, as well. There is a pic of one of his foals here : http://www.highpointfarm.biz/horses/..._for_sale.html (scroll down). It is the only one I've seen in person, but she was very nice. Not sure where she is now.

                  It's too bad there doesn't seem to be a breeding advertising page with more information on WakeUp. I bet if they put one up and put out some word of mouth, they could pay for their trip to Europe with breeders who are willing to book a breeding to him.

                      I'm not sure about Emily, but Jana doesn't do email; not even sure if she has internet at her farm...
                      But as someone else mentioned Emily has a blog, so perhaps that is the avenue to pursue.

                        Amazing movement, amazing conformation, amazing temperament, amazingly proven pedigree?

                        Many mentioned here have some combination of the above, but I can’t think of one that I would categorize as “amazing” in all four categories.

                        I think Sir Gregory is pretty cool, but he is in Canada (not the U.S.) he has just started breeding, and I’m not sure what is going on with his dressage career – I heard he might do some hunter stuff this year.

                            "Amazing movement, amazing conformation, amazing temperament, amazingly proven pedigree?"

                            Wow, that is a tall order! I can not think of even one stallion anywhere that fulfills that description (-:

                            But, if you go strictly with exciting, and up and coming, then maybe there are a few to name.....but up and coming and proven can not co-exist. And this is totally my own taste and has nothing to do with the quality of any other talented young stallion in the US.

                            Of the ones I have seen and would breed to and would like to have broodmares in my breeding program:

                            Sir Gregory not proven, but could be very interesting as a brood mare sire. Saw him as a three year old and he made me look twice. Lovely stallion, lovely pedigree.

                            Solos Lantinus. Not up and coming but proven and in the US. And two of my favorite bloodline combinations....Landadel and Argentinus.

                              Very good post Crosiadore. I also really like Sir Gregory as a stallion, and I have to say, I have a 2011 foal that is really stunning in type and also seems to have 3 excellent gaits.

                              I really am interested in Solos Lantinus, he was very well proven in Denmark.


                              I also have seen some excellent Benidetto offspring (another young stallion).

                                Where is Solos Lantinus standing? He's always been of interest to me. TIA

                                Have any of the Hano or GOV breeders used Oskar II on their mares? I know there has been alot of success with other TK stallions on Hano or Oldenburg mares and I just wonder if he has been thought of or used. He is such a spectacular stallion with an excellent performance record. He also brings in some TK bloodlines that are a little different than some of the German TK lines. Might be interesting! He started at stud late, but I'd sure love to see him used more. I have a filly by him that I'm really impressed with -- just getting her started. Just a thought....

                                  My horse is in training with Jana (Wakeup)too. I asked her before she went to Lamplight how old the babies were. I think she said 2 yo. none broke yet. She has babies at the barn by him, so you get to see the babies. I watched Emily ride him and WoW he is truly amazing. Very active, beautiful and supple. Even more impressive in person. The family is a delight to deal with.

                                    I would swear Jana still has a rotary phone! ha ha. I have offered to make a web site for them but they really have no interest. My friend has a Wake Up foal born last month out of a Dutch mare, she is very happy with him. I own a half-brother to Wake Up and cannot say enough about their temperaments and gaits.

                                      Exciting up and coming stallion? I've rolled the dice with Qredit. He has a great pedigree, appears to be an even-keeled, uber pleasant guy who takes things in stride, and who can be fired up when necessary and quiet in the mean time. Hopefully I'll let you know what his foals can do...

                                        Yes, I know that Joe has bred many Hanno and Dutch mares (I think he has more outside mares booked this year than he does to TK mares actually).
