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!

  • Heraldik Sons?

    Brainstorming!!! Anyone know of Heraldik sons standing at sons? (Bonus points if you can provide a link to their website.)

    I'd love to breed to a son of Heraldik, but since they are approved in various different registries I'm having a tough time coming up with a comprehensive list of choices!

      Hunter does look really nice. Unfortunately I'm a little gun shy that there is no video available for him, ever, or offspring... A little jumpy about breeding to a stallion whom I will never see walk, trot, or canter, much less jump.

      Anyone have experience with him? Or others? (I'm in the US)

        Do a search on this forum. Someone has developed a pretty comprehensive list.
        They do have a few foal photos for Hunter on the W2 website. Maybe they send out CDs?

          Wendy Webster is very easy to talk to, and she can tell you all you need to know about Hunter. I am sure she has some pics and video too.

              I think the other posts above have about covered it. Someone here confirmed on another thread that Herald 3 will be competing and not standing at stud this year, but may be available in the future.

              The only one not mentioned is one I discovered earlier this week: Hyperion -- standing in Germany but apparently available in at least Canada (not sure about whether they can ship to the U.S.) though Mariposa Sporthorses. I've not been able to find much else about him, however.

              Here is the link:

                The only additional info I've been able to find out about Hyperion is that he is, or was, evented by Frank Ostholt.

                  Any news on when Herald 3 may be available? Seems like from this thread his owners weren't interested in standing him. Sigh.

                    I dug a little deeper and was able to find some video on Hyperion. Apparently there were discussions about selling him to a young rider from Hong Kong for the 2010 Asian games. There is a letter from her mother posted on the internet soliciting donations to buy the horse, which contains links to otherwise non-searchable YouTube videos of the stallion doing dressage, stadium, and a hunter-derby type cross-country schooling session with the young rider: http://www.hkef.org/cgi-bin/display/...gi?content=271 The video links are at the bottom of the letter.

                    The letter is interesting itself for a number of reasons (just read it); also interesting is the cross-country schooling facility in the videos (which presumably is in Germany), which packs a variety of jumps into a small-ish set of adjoining arenas. It looks like it may even be in an urban area.

                      I met Wendy and she was nice enough to show Hunter, a 2 year old son and 3 daughters to me back in October 2011. They were all 2 years old to 5 years old. She had Hunter free jump a little also. I like him a lot, PM me if you have any specific questions you would like answered. My fiance tried to take a video of him but it didn't turn out well because of the lighting and he was using his phone to video.

                      I also was able to find jumping footage of him on youtube under the title 'Hunter v Heraldik". Do a search and it should come up, I can't seem to access youtube right now.

                            Hi - So I am posting on Wendy Webster's behalf about her lovely boy, the Heraldik son Hunter. I also helped her with her website, which is a work in progress so the feedback is welcome. She does have video - we are going to try to get it onto the website asap but do contact her any time if you have questions or want to learn more about Hunter.

                            I say based on my time spent with Hunter that he has that "special" presence. He is polite and a true gentleman but by no means is he a dud - quite the opposite. His confo is correct, he has good bone, a lovely eye, and wonderful movement. I have also come to know several of his offspring and all are top quality and inherit their father's fantastic qualities.

                            Unfortunately, Hunter is no longer in sport. Here is what Wendy asked me to post:
                            Hunter's career as a sport horse
                            ended in 2006 when he contracted an incurable lung infection.
                            While he remains healthy enough to perform on farm breeding
                            duties his semen is not able to withstand the rigors of overnight
                            shipment. His frozen semen remains a viable alternative and has
                            produced multiple offspring in Germany and the USA.

                            If you have any questions or wish to know more, please don't hesitate to contact Wendy directly (www.w2holsteiners.com) and I am happy to answer any questions as I am able via PM. Thanks!

                              Did you end up seeing any video of Hunter? I feel the same way about not being able to see him move or jump. I'm very interested in Heraldik bloodlines too.
