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.

  • Hanoverian approved stallion Sport Ponies

    I have never considered this option- but I need to know if they even exist.

    I have the most beautiful Hanoverian filly, that may reach 16 hands, but realistically, I don't think she will.
    She is beautifully proportioned and a great mover. She is the one mare that I would even consider for this option. I'm not sure that I will breed her next year, so I have plenty of time to see if she stays small.

    My questions are- do Hanoverian approved riding ponies exist aside from Mandingo, whom I've seen in person.

      Yes...and no. There certainly are Hannover ponies...but that registry has no relationship with the AHA. AHA does not do ponies. Occasionaly Hannover pony does inspections in the US (ussualy at Klaus B. farm)...but since no relationship with US Hannoverians...you may as well look at Weser-Ems and RPSI as well. Then you have many more options for stallions. Hope that helps!

        Yep, I would go with Weser-Ems.

        Remember, height has a lot to do with the pedigree of the mare too. So, even if the mare isn't going to get very big- what size are her parents?

          Even though your mare may be on the small size, there may he some "height" in her pedigree. What are the heights of her sire and dam?

          If you are looking to produce a Sport Pony, you would have to breed your mare to something under 12.3 HH, in my opinion, in order to produce a foal that would stay under 14.2 HH. And unfortunately, the warmblood registries (ISR/Oldenburg, Weser-Ems, etc.) do not accept pony stallions that small into their pony stud books.

          For example, if you bred your mare to Mandingo, you would likely end up with something in the 15.2+ HH range.

            I second the last posts. The Warmblood regsitry Hannover does not have ties to the Pony one (well loose ones, but not breedingbookwise).
            You would need to present your mare nevertheless to one of the pony registries. Than I would go with a good and for the selected registry approved Welsh B stallion. Very often to be seen "recipe" in Germany. Constantin is a stallion to be named that stamped the Weser Ems breeding regarding WB pony mixes.
            But actually I think 16 hands not tooo small for WB breeding. My mares are not much taller and I get tall enough foals. I keep that in mind and do not select anything that is known for throwing small. I would not cross belissimo or offspring to the one of my mares. It never occured to me to go the pony route because she is not huge. I bred e.g. to Benetton Dream twice and both resulting foals were tall enough as foals and the older one looks now as if he will finish in the 165m - 170m. What is the pedigree of your mare ?

              I am a fan of the pony Stallion The Breas My Mobility and own a now Licensed son of his. I would think you would have to stick with something the size of Mobility to breed to a small warm blood mare. As quoted from the Oldenburg website about this year's Bundeschampionat:

              The other champion from the dressage arena was Mad Max WE (The Braes My Mobility x Sandro Hit) who won the 5 year old Dressage Ponies under rider Anna-Lisa Theile. Mad Max WE bred by Elisabeth van Hoorn and owned by Hannes Theile was outstanding scoring 9.0's for his trot and canter resulting in an overall 8.2 and the gold medal!

              And I have seen a couple other super Dressage ponies by him. If I could get my hands on his frozen I would be very tempted to try him on one of my smaller warmblood mares.

                  Thanks Alexandra. The pony colt I own, Manchester City, is a full brother to Manchester Untied now owned by Sprehe. Manchester City is a bit bigger than his full brother and seems to have better gaits for Dressage. We will see. I now need to find the appropriate mare to breed to him....well I have found her, just need to to send the check (-: She is just divine and has produced three States Premium daughters to date. Am just beginning to learn about the pony breeding it Germany, and am blown away by the quality.

                    I too love the Braes My Mobility. There was a SUPER colt from him out of a Damon Hill mare at last month's pony sale. I wanted him badly. Unfortunately he was incorrect in the foundation (all 4 legs) so I had to pass.


                    Constantin and his son Calido G is also crossed on "full size" WB mares quite successfully -
                    Calido G is a Welsh B 129cm, standing at

                    Halerhöhe 2
                    49685 Emstek.

                    I did buy a 2011 filly from Calido G out of a DeNiro mare in August. My filly finished in the Top 5 at the German Foal Championships at Lienen this year. This is the 3rd repeat on this cross and all have been "pony sized" but with big WB movement and very competitive.

                          Chardonnay himself is already a good size pony; would not use him on a wb mare hoping the result stay under fei pony limit.

                          I have seen Cinderella as a 3or 4 yo - what a pony !

                            Whispering Palms Farm in Florida has two stallions, one Section B and another Section C that recently were approved by RPSI and Weser Ems.
                            http://www.whisperingpalmsfarm.com/stallions.htm
                            That said, I agree with Daventry that you might not get a pony. I have a Popeye K mare that is a hair under 15.3 HH. She had a filly in April by Banderas - her first. The filly is huge - taller than the six other foals at the barn out of bigger mares and taller stallions - and will likely be 16.2 HH plus. Just because your mare is small is no guarantee that her offspring will be.
                            A 16.1 HH Voltaire mare owned by a friend was bred to a Section B stallion last year. It was apparent from birth that her filly, although very pretty, will NOT be a pony.

                              Agreed - Chardonnay is another example of using Constantin on a non-pony sized mare as his damline is mostly TB and Trak.

                                I just came back from a ISR Oldenburg inspection with my Hanoverian mare and her 1/2 Welsh pony filly. The filly was out of Rollingwoods Top Drawer a 12.2 Welsh stallion. It was the mare's first foal and should be a top of the line large. The filly got a 7.8 on conformation, 8.3 on gaits for a total score of 8.1. Look at a Welsh with big gaits I know I am thrilled with my cross.

                                  The Braes My Mobility is not available by frozen semen. Constantin is also not available by frozen semen. In terms of German Welsh ponies that have been successful that are available by frozen semen the only one I'm aware of is Halifax. But, there are more and more Welsh pony stallions being approved by the German sport pony registries.

                                      OP, you might want to look at Wedderlie Mardi Gras. He is a Section B Welsh, about 13h, and approved for Weser-Ems breeding. You may or may not get a pony sized foal, though. If your mare has size in her bloodlines, she may throw more to her pedigree, even if you use a small stallion.

                                      A friend has recently gone through this - I cautioned her a few years ago about breeding her 15.3h WB mare for a pony, but she was determined. Her mare's sire is 16.1 and damsire is 16.3, and even though she used a 13.2 Welsh stallion, the foal is going to easily top 16h.
