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.

  • Dressage Stallions that always throw great temperments

    What are some dressage stallions that always throw great temperaments? I've heard that Werbellin and Contucci usually do, which others?

  • #2
    Beste Gold, for either Dressage OR the Hunters.Stamps INCREDIBLE temperaments. They LOVE to work and please,are very forgiving and light to ride without being overly sensitive.

    Unfortunately there are not too many to pipe in and add to the claim, since his oldest are just under saddle and their trainers don't post....

          Don Principe!! That Donnerhall and Prince Thatchxx blood comes through time after time. When we bought "Prince" temperment was #1 for us. After all- I am getting up there in age and had a hip replacement last year with another this year. Both the stallion and his offspring had to be good minded and tractable.

                    Silvio (middleburg) never competed under saddle in Dressage due to injury, but was champion stallion in hand at DAD. His babies are becoming famous for their gentle dispositions, and he himself is basicly a lapdog to handle. He is from the same sire line as Sandro Hit.

                      Thanks for the tip. I didn't know the secret was to keep buying chesnuts with white so hubby wouldn't notice. I keep breeding chesnuts with white, and yes, good old Bolero! So nobody notices. Heck, most people can't even tell my horses apart! They're all chesnut with white socks and blazes. You have to count the socks and look between the legs for a clue!

                      Sorry OP for getting off topic. I'll behave myself now.

                            Nevada's offspring have incredible temperaments. He was Champion stallion In Hand at VADA/Morven & Res Ch Stallion at Dressage at Lexington. His offspring are just beginning to be shown, but two of his youngsters qualified for the Championships with their very first dressage test, scoring over 67%. One (out of a QH mare) was ridden by a Young rider (I believe she was 18) at barely 4 years of age. The other (Warmblood mare) is turning 4 this month and has just been sold to a Junior rider. Another Junior rider is competing her Nevada 4 year old (TB mare) in Eventing, and won the Dressage portion of her first Event this spring. Their trainers have a lot of confidence in Nevada offspring temperaments and rideability.

                              After dealing with more than a few Pointmakers, I would defiantly not suggest him for a stallion that always throws good temperaments. He himself has a great temperament, his offspring verge on the explosive side. My trainer has one, and she even said that her mare is not a amateur horse at all, neither are any of the PMs shes met. All the ones I have meet are on the explosive side, hot and reactive.

                                Two fillies I have had with outstanding tempermants would be by Donnerschlag and this years Fabuleux. I had a Rascalino that was pretty level headed too.

                                    Freestyle definitely passes on a great temperament. I have met several of his offspring and have two of my own, and they are all incredibly easy to work with.

                                      Wildcard is in NC. His offspring are going under saddle and starting to show. I had a student buy an unbroken 4 year old, after two months with a trainer she is trail riding by herself and took her to hang out at a show and was able to hack her. Wildcard got a 9 on his trot, very fancy guy!

                                        I don't think you can ever claim "ALWAYS" throws good temperments. But some lines tend to throw better temperments then others. Someone mentioned Pointmaker, I know three of these horses and all are very difficult. I don't think he's known for throwing a good temperment, although he is a nice boy. I know a few Donnerhalls, and all are pretty complicated, but lovely movers.

                                        Florestan and Fienerstern (F lines) tend to be nice horses. Some of the W lines are pretty steady - Wonderful is nice, but semen is "iffy". Many of the Ideal babies are quite easy to work with. I've known a few Idocus offspring that were nice, easy horses (OK, I've jumped breeds now). Sempatico seems to be throwing good minds, although not too many going under saddle yet, as he is young.

                                        Bordeaux was throwing good temperment - is he still around? Haven't heard anything about him lately.

                                        On the mare line, many of the foals OUT of Diamont mares tend to be much nicer than their mothers

                                        My stallion is throwing nice temperments and good hind ends Sorry, had to throw that in
