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.

  • What compliments Aristos B?

    I have a mare by Aristos B out of a Thoroughbred mare that I want to breed. Does anyone have any recommendations for stallions? The only thing I am looking to improve is temperament (needs to be on the quieter side). The mare is put together very well.

    Thanks!

    How is she on size? If she is large, and you want smaller-- how about Jupiter? You're right near me, I might have ti beat down your door for the resulting foal. Rio Grande would be a super cross, IMHO, if frozen is available. Tell us about your mare!

      She is 16 H petite grey mare with socks. Very cute! Jumps very well! Other people on this board have claimed to own/breed her in the past but I do not know who she was bred to.

        What's her name? I know one that sort of meets the description (though I cannot remember whether she had socks or not). She sounds very cute!

          I bought her with the name River Dance but prior to that her name was Jackie Blue.

            The person who raised her does post here, and her screen name is (by no small coincidence) Jackie Blue!

              There is a yearling filly, and a new colt out of an Aristos B mare in Middleburg, by Silvio. The mare owner is thrilled with them.

                horses4me, was your mare out of a TB?? Mine is out of a TB but is a real chunky monkey and only 15-2. I have never bred her, just used her for riding. Seems that the Aristos B mares are so different. Is yours a lot like the mare she is out of?? I know a person who knows mine when at Jackie Mars in NJ so will ask about her TB dam.
                If your mare is really light you may want some stallion with a little more substance but not too much if there can be a throwback in Aristos B pedigree. He is pretty substantial as I recall. Maybe someone has seen him recently and can better define him.
                Mine was a chunky monkey as a yearling and looks the same today!!

                    Aristos B himself is a solid, solid animal. If you didn't see the pedigree, I don't think you'd guess that he has as much blood in him as he does. My gelding is also out of a thoroughbred mare-- and he's enormous. 56 inch girth, squeezing out of his 84 inch Rambos.

                          This mare is Aristos B out of a thoroughbred.

                          She is about 16'1, and...uh...holds her flesh well, I'd say!

                          And as to the OP's question -- it sounds like most of us complIment Aristos B. What complEments him best is another story! (Sorry, English geek :-)

                            libgrrl, I never cease to be amazed at how gorgeous your girl is. She is just STUNNING (I think it's the dark color with the dapples that gets me).

                            horses4me, given that your mare is on the smaller side, Jupiter would probably be too small. Too bad, he's got a great temperment and I think that'd be a super cross other than size (unless you want small). So I'll stick my by Rio Grande recommendation and also Sir Calletto and Nob Hill.

                                Hmm - well Rio Grande is huge, and with Aristos in there, you could end up with something very, very large (and I'm not sure he'd help in the temperament part, either). I love Jupiter, but he can throw a bit of fire as well.

                                Do you have any photo's you can post? How about someone like Just the Best for her? His get have wonderful minds, and he is extremely attractive with enough TB blood to compliment your mare well, but enough WB substance to handle any crop-outs from her Aristos. Not to mention he is quite a lovely mover, with that lovely way of going.....Without seeing photos of her, he would be my top choice.

                                  Lovely VirginiaBred!!!

                                  I've only ever known really sweet Jupiter offspring and he himself as a puppy dog! But I don't doubt that there are some out there.

                                  I think Just the Best is gorgeous but I have sort of the same size reservations with him as with Jupiter.

                                  I have seen photos of the mare (admittedly they are old) and she's not a big chunky like some Aristos B's are. She inherited the TB side more than by hulk did. I actually think Just the Best would be a nice match in type for her, if you're not overly concerned about the size.

                                  never having met any Rio Grandes, I am surprised to hear a comment about them being difficult. I had always heard that they were very sane and easy. The once I've seen showing go equally nice for the pro and ammy, and to me that's one good measure of temperment.

                                      The Aristos offspring seem to be very different. The ones we bred all are relatively of the type (libgrrl's mare is one, and Reggie Pepper and Game On) but, I've seen them of all heights and builds, from the very small to the gigantic.
                                      My advice, for what it's worth, is to stick with something that is very close to the type of your mare. Rox Dene is a very substantial mare and we went with a TB originally to avoid adding bulk, which ended up being the wrong choice and we lost a lot of size and substance. I am completely thrilled with my Popeye 3 year old out of her, though I held my breath to see if we'd gone too far the other way, it seems to have been exactly the right thing to hold onto her type.

                                        With Jupiter, the Zeus coming through can give you attitude early on. There are a couple people on here with Jupiter's who may be able to elaborate He is one of my absolute favorites, the jump is just amazing.

                                        Rio Grande is one that gets me. I have heard so much about his lovely minded offspring, and there are plenty of people on COTH who have wonderful, easy horses by him. But then I've ridden a few, and seen a couple go, that are not easy. So, as wonderful as he is, with a mare who needs quiet, he wouldn't be the first on my list.
