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!

    That might matter to people that have likes or dislikes about abbreviations in horse papers.

    I personally see it a lot simpler: I breed horses and not numbers.

    And in Europe it is quite common to have breed associations holding books for several breeds. These associations were not historically bound to a certain region (as you have it with associations for Hanoverians, Westphalians, etc.; as all this changed recently it is even more confusing with nearly all of these associations actually breeding a Warmblood Sporthorse...).

      It matters a great deal to some people. And I think it's great that some people take great pride in their breed and their registry. But we don't all have to agree

        Oh, I am pretty sure that every single Knabstrupper breeder is proud of breeding Knabstruppers. And this is what they are registered as - may it be in the KNN or the RPSI. As RPSI has its origin in RPS, Germany and, therefore, has to follow the European regulations, their Knabstrupper studbook is set up following the rules of the motherbook association being the KNN.

        And, again, to make it quite clear: No, RPSI registered Knabstruppers are not Zweibrueckers, but Knabstruppers and this is exactly, what is stated in their papers issued by RPSI.

        I see you have made your point and I do accept such thinking indeed, but in case of Knabstruppers and their registration either with KNN or RPSI or both I do also see that several U.S. Knabstrupper breeders stated quite clearly their experience: there is no difference.

          While we're on the subject of Knabs and registries, I do have a question for your Knabstrupper gurus...

          I have a filly here who I'm curious about getting approved, although I'm not clear about acceptable outcrosses or how this would all work. She's a 2011 Hanoverian x Appaloosa (Royal Senna/Rubinstein I, out of a Plaudit bred mare), pretty fancy, very correct, will be BIG, nice colour, great brain. Would she be eligible for any kind of registration or approvals with any of these registries?

                IF she had a foal by an approved Knabstrupper stallion then you could present both mare and foal to the KNN. The mare will get a grade/score, and foal might well be accepted into the Appendix stud book . Maybe as an F2 horse IF you had proof of parentage from the Hannoverian side. if you did not then it would be registered as an F1 horse in the same Appendix stud book.

                The don't register horses unless they have one Knabstrupper parent, so they won't register the mare, but her foals (by a Knabstrupper) will be.

                Hope this makes sense.

                  No - she can't be approved as a Knabstrupper. Knabstrupper is a breed, not just a color, & a Hanoverian x Appaloosa cross does not a Knabstrupper make.

                  But as mentioned previously, you "might" be able to get a foal produced by her registered if she was bred to a Knabstrupper stallion.

                    Thank you! I figured as much. Still a few years to go before considering any breeding, but that's probably the route I'll take.

                    This is the filly:

                      The first three #'s are the country, the second three #'s are the registry, the remaining nine #'s are the horse's registration #. If the registration # is less than 9 digits, there will be 0's in front of it so that it totals 9 digits.

                      For example, my stallion's UELN is 840039020037001. From this you can tell he's USA 840 and registered with the Friesian Sporthorse Association 039 followed by a 0 and then his registration # (which also happens to include his birth year.)

                      The breed isn't implicitly stated via the UELN -- in other words there is no digit that means "Trakehner" or "Friesian" or "Knabstrupper" -- but you can generally deduce the breed based on the registry. Less so in some areas of Germany however, if I'm understanding Pendragon's posts correctly.

                      I'm not sure what the #'s are for the KNN and the RPSI...

                              Another Registration question

                              I wholeheartedly agree Melyni- I wouldn't ride anything but a Knabbie and mine is still too young to ride!!!

                              Okay, So I know this thread is a bit old but I have a question that just might fit here so here goes.

                              My 2009 filly is Main book registered with the KNN if I bred her to a RPSI or Zfpd stallion would the resulting foal be eligible with the KNN and would she need outcross approval for her to do so? (Since I can go RPSI it doesn't matter all that much but I really want to support the KNN by having the resulting foal inspected with them.)

                              Similarly, For acceptable outcross mares bred to Knabstrupper stallions outside the KNN (but approved with another registry) would the resulting foal be eligible with the KNN or would RPSI be the only option?

                              Side note: Since it is a separate book does the RPSI brand them with the K?

                              and since we are talking about Knabstrupper and Registries Knabbie owners should check out the Knabstrupper Club it a breed communityfor the promotion the breed and supporting Knabstrupper owners/breeders.

                                  or you won't get a passport from KNN. If the stallion is RPSI approved you cna get a passport from RPSI. ZfDP are another problem since they don't do inspections outside of Germany. I am not sure if RPSI will issue a passport on a ZfDP stallion's offspring.

                                  So mares are easy, but stallions are more difficult. Best to check BEFORE you breed to that stallion, where his offspring are registered and whether or not he has approval.

                                    ZfDP is a valid Breed Association in Germany and a stallion inspected and approved by them will be accepted with RPSI too. But as Melyni said you should check before breeding IF the stallion is truly approved.

                                      Okay so to clarify, providing the mare is approved with the KNN:

                                      -bred to a KNN approved stallion the foal obviously is eligible KNN but if inspected RPSI will also be put in the KNN book as well as the RPSI knabstrupper book?

                                      -If bred to RPSI approved stallion (for example I believe the Helios of Independence & Morpheus G are approved through them) the foals only option would be RPSI because the stallions aren't considered an outcross and are therefore ungraded knabstruppers in the eyes of the KNN while the RPSI recognizes them (or there parents) under other Knabstrupper Registries.

                                      -If bred to Zfpd approved Stallion (like for example Hussar of Independence) the foal is eligible for RPSI as it falls under the German umbrella.

                                      But most importantly make sure the stallion is IN FACT Approved and when in doubt check with the breeder and or the registry he is approved under.

                                          Not that I know of, I believe that Ares of Baroque-n-Dreams is a Knabstrupper and he is a palomino but I believe he has been gelded. Aurum might have a few but she is in Germany so . . .
