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.

    Who breeds RPSI registered Knabs?

    Who breeds KNN resgistered?

    Other than the KNN being the original Danish registry what is the main differences of having the foal registered with RPSI and KNN?

    I will defer to experts regarding the differences in the KNN (http://www.knabstrupperforeningen.dk/) and the AKA (American Knabstrupper Association)... though, I am under the impression that, as of this point in time, the AKA may be an entity that is "not surviving"...

    Clearly, the RPSI registers and approves many "different' breeds of sport horses...

    For more information on Knabstruppers, see http://www.knabstruppers4usa.com/ and chat with Melyni... There's lots of nice information on her links page!

      AKA stepped aside in favor of the KNN when it began coming to the U.S. to inspect and register Knabstruppers here. It was "surviving" just fine up to that point, thank you.

      And the OP didn't ask about AKA. She asked about KNN vs. RPSI.

      IMHO, the inspectors of both are excellent. The quality of the horses approved in both are excellent. RPSI doesn't, however, promote the breed in any way - and tha's fine. They stepped in early on when KNN couldn't be bothered with the U.S. RPSI agreed to set up a Knabstrupper book so that the Knabstruppers here could be registered SOMEWHERE.

      AKA stepped in and became a registry when it became clear that RPSI had no interest in promoting the breed.

      Now, AKA has stepped aside in favor of KNN. It is yet to be seen whether KNN will step up to the plate and do ANY of the promotion and PR associated with the breed in the U.S. that AKA did for several years.

              Well.. I am happy to announce that we have some confirmed pregnancies to Hussar of Independence here at home in Australia. They are to approved and classified Hanoverian mares.

              Many Thanks to Melyni who set the entire project in motion for us, and to Patricia Fallows who was very easy and professional to deal with, despite all of the obstacles that we had to overcome!!

              No idea what they will be registered with,but fingers crossed for some foals next september.

                    Breeding Knabs in the USA

                    The RPSI were the early inspector s and registers of Knabs in the USA. They follow KNN rules, so not much difference, as long as the pedigree rules were followed (not always the case with the very early Knabs) then the RPSI horses get an automatic inclusion in the KNN database and can have KNN registered foals etc. Their Book 2 horses (Horses with pedigree problems), are not an automatic inclusion and have to be inspected on an individual basis by the KNN inspectors.

                    It's usually a matter of convenience whether you go RPSI or KNN.
                    The KNN are very small organization and there are not the finances to do extensive tours of the USA etc. So for folks in outlying areas or years when the KNN do not come people have the option to use RPSI.

                    There is no point listing which breeders go to which registry since most of us use both.

                    If you have a question about a specific horse you can always just ask the owner which registry they use.

                    But in terms of value or quality there is no difference.


                    Hope this helps

                      A Knabstrupper brag!

                      Since we are on the subject of Knabstruppers! You might like to know that Xavoy Middelsom and I, got our final score at PSG for our Silver medal this weekend.

                      Xavoy is what Knabstruppers are all about. He has put up with mistakes, and succeeded in advancing thru the dressage ranks, trained entirely by me, an amateur!

                      He is always honest and always tries for me, his gaits are not the best, (though he has a talent for collection). But you never have to worry about him spooking or being difficult. The best of all is, that he allows me, a middle-aged, somewhat overweight, amateur rider, to put on the shadbelly and helmet and canter down the center line in FEI classes.

                      I don't need to pack my lunging gear.
                      I don't need my trainer to warm him up or settle him down.
                      It does not matter what the weather is, nor how many horses there in the warm-up. He always comes out and does his best.
                      I might have had moments of frustration (and it has been a long road), but I have NEVER felt that my life was at risk, nor do I have to worry about my horse and his willingness.

                      And for that, he is worth his weight in gold! And that's what Knabstruppers are all about.
                      It's not about their color, that's just icing on the cake, it's about their 'can do' attitude and their willingness and honesty.

                      That's why I own and ride them.
                      May all your horses be as good as a Knabstrupper!

                        Huge Congrats, Melyni <smile>...I'm sold on them now. We took on Colorado with not a little bit of trepidation. Totally different breed, definitely a horse of a different color, and quite honestly, we knew very little about the breed. We sent Colorado through the stallion testing last year for two reasons - to raise the profile of the breed and because we are HUGE advocates that boys that stand here, must be performance tested one way or the other. We are thrilled that he has proven himself to be a great ambassador for the breed and changed more than a few of the riders at the test last year, opinion of the big spotty horse!

                        Hopefully, as more interest is generated in the breed, the KNN will be able to reach more breeders here in the future. We are fortunate that the RPSI does have the Knabstrupper book and is willing to inspect horses that will be acceptable to the KNN when all criteria is in place in the interim. It makes it much easier for anyone interested in breeding them. There just aren't a lot of them out there!

                        MysticOakRanch, thank you for mentioning Colorado ...anyone interested in checking him out can find him on our farm website at http://www.avalon-equine.com There's plenty of video and photos of him and next year we should be able to provide more baby photos. And lastly, for those of you that are down under, we will be exporting semen to Australia in the next few weeks so those of you that are interested in breeding Knabbies will have him available, as well!

                              I have a registered Knabstrupper 6yo mare by Apollon. She was registered with RPSI with the Knab brand as a foal. She was retained by us to show which she has done well in jumpers and beginning to event. Unfortunately our finances are such that I have to sell her but I absolutely adore her. She is such a beautiful and smart mare. She unfortunately did not inherit the LP gene for spotting but she is solid black and 16.2h of beauty. I had hoped to keep her and breed her after her show career. I totally support the U.S. Knabs, just love them.

                                  Idle curiosity..... If you register a Knabstrupper with the KNN I'm assuming it gets a UELN from the KNN so people would assume it was a Knabstrupper. And I'm assuming if you register one with the RPSI it gets a UELN from the RPSI so some might assume from the UELN it was a Zweibrucker. Does this bother anyone, or has anyone really thought about it, or how do you handle it? And what about international rankings etc -- if a Knabstrupper were to make it to that point, would it be credited as Knabstrupper, or a Zweibrucker?

                                    @RiverOaksFarm: No, the UELN does not identify a horse's breed, but the association and the country, where the association is located (at least this is valid for Europe and issue of Equine Passports incl. the UELN).

                                    RPSI does not register Knabstruppers as Zweibrueckers, but as Knabstruppers. They have a separate book for this breed.

                                      What is even more interesting is this picture of horses ancestors.. (of course, the theory of evolution is exactly that.. still only a theory..so could be wrong!)

                                      The mesohippus is often pictured as being spotted.. not sure if they have ever found evidence or just theoretical?

                                        Pendragon, I may not have been clear. I realize the UELN identifies the association and the country BUT........ the common assumption is that a horse with a UELN issued by a particular registry *is* the breed registered by that registry. For example, if you see a horse with an FSA UELN, wouldn't you assume it's a Friesian Sporthorse? And not, say, a Dutch Warmblood?

                                        But anyhow, I guess that's my answer, it doesn't matter to everyone (though it matters very much to some!)

                                        I was simply curious for the reasons outlined in my previous post.
