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.

  • Crazy idea: need advice on smaller horse stallions

    I am in an outlandish mood and over the last month have been thinking about what I am going to breed my mare to this year. I have a large pony mare, although I am not even certain how anyone got her to measure under the 14.2hh mark. She is an amazing mover, can easily do a 3 foot 6 course and is pretty. She also loves to be a mom, she has had 2 foals out of pony stallions. What makes things a little bit of a gamble is the fact that we have no idea what her breeding is. She was bought as a show pony and at that time we weren't interested in breeding her. Any how, her first foal is now 3 and is a knock out. Hoping he doesn't grow much more, but other than that I couldn't be more happy.
    So what I am thinking is breeding her to a 16hh or so horse stallion to create a small junior hunter. If it ends up not being what I expect, I am more than happy and able to keep the resulting offspring for myself as a lifer. Being from the pony world, I need advice on what stallions are out there that suit what I am looking for. Price is not an object, after all the stud fee is the lease expensive part of breeding. I am looking for a stallion that throws a longer neck, nice hind end, ammie-friendly brain, and ideally a pretty face. Being from pony history, I really enjoy a pretty face to look at and have never grown to love the typical horse face. Luckily up here in Canada, the children's hunter division is one of our biggest, so if worse comes to worse the horse would have a career there. Ideally I would like the resulting offspring to be has close to the 16hh mark. In that case, what size stallion would you recommend looking at? I'll try and dig up some pictures so you can see my mare.

    Here is her first foal at 9 mo.

    I would go with a stallion who is 16.0 to 16.1 h and who has a heavy TB influence, but it is also important to know how he produces height wise. Some stallions produce taller than they are. You might consider Just the Best or Vallado.

      There is Larry's Hat (T.B.) - but he's only l5.1 or so. He is in B.C and available frozen with a LFG. He is from a pony breeding program in Virginia and is well known for that - a stunning mover. Just depends... as usual! on a number of factors.

        How about an Anglo Arabian. The attached photo is a 16.1H Anglo Arabian stallion (pic at age three). Very very quiet. Huge stride. Good jump. His TB breeding is Hoist The Flag/Swaps/Bold Ruler...

        There is another one in MD named Post Exchange. 15.2 or 15.3H. Accomplished working hunter and sire of the same.

          Nevada is a nice cross for a pony mare looking to add size. When bred to 14h mares, the foals have matured to about 15.3 h. He will improve necks and hindquarters. Nevada has been ridden by juniors, and he passes along his wonderful temperament.

                      I'm confused.

                      Are you looking for a smaller stallion or a stallion to breed to a smaller horse? The reason I ask is that I thought one thing due to the title of your thread but then saw that you wanted the resulting offspring to be 16hh. How tall is your mare? If she is close to 14.2hh and you want a 16hh foal then you probably need to be looking at 17hh+ stallions. Maybe that will work.

                        I'm ideally looking for a stallion in the 16hh area, just because I am not certain her breeding and am accounting for the "unknown" here. As well, I don't really want to tempt fate by breeding a smaller mare to such a large stallion (both in height and structure...which is what a 17hh++ stallion would do). Sorry for the confusion.

                                I'll suggest my own. You can see recent videos of him on our website, he is a beautiful mover and has a very good jump. He is 15.3hh right now, but will finish at 16hh. He sounds like what you are looking for, VERY ami minded stallion too.
                                here is the most recent video, this is only his second school jumping with a rider BTW.

                                  Check out Coronado WW at Borderline Farm. My 2007 filly by him was the high scoring BWP filly last year - I bred back ;-)

                                  Also, check out Concorde B (on my website). He's a stunning black stallion that produces premium foals. Concorde B has not shown a whole lot in the hunters, but has done well on his few outings.

                                    If Jupiter is still available, I think that's an outstanding choice. I think he'd really be a stellar cross for a pony mare, and he's such a nice individual himself. Have you thought about any of the warmblood pony stallions?! I think more than a few have size behind them, I almost feel like a warmblood pony crossed on a large Welsh is likely to get you an ideal small junior. My other thought would be a cobby connemara, then you'd get the body without the height.

                                      Jupiter was absolutely my first thought when I read the OP. Really could not go wrong there. Stunning stallion.

                                        You might take a look at Donarweiss. He is about 16.0 hh, pretty, has white accents , and did well on the jumping portion of his 30 d.t.. He is new at being a breeding stallion so he doesn't have a ton of foals on the ground, but what he does have looks good.
