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!

    I've been riding in Wayne, Il since 1970 and had the pleasure of knowing Edith Kosterka. Edith imported Nenufer, one of the first horses registered with ATA. She imported or bred many wonderful trakehners. She had Morgenglanz, a Breyer model, who hunted with the Wayne DuPage Hunt. Troubadour, who was the reserve horse for the Swiss Dressage Team at the Seoul Olympics. Wasyl was one of my favorites. I remember as a foal only a couple of weeks old that he was jumping things in his front pasture. When Edith died her horses were sent to the University of Illinois for their breeding program and others were sold. Her farm is now a jumper barn. I board there and have the only full trakhener on the farm. a gelding by Butow "E".

      Back in the day when warmbloods were scarcely known up here, thee were two Trakehner stallions - Boraks and Artic.

      Wonder what became of them I bred my mare to Boraks, not very successfully, tho.

        I believe Artic ended up down here in FL. Might be wrong though. He died several years ago. Tate was bred to an Artic mare up in PA (mare is a 3 yo this year). The mare was around 20 at conception and has produced several good field hunters/eventers over the years. Ill add the link to the video of the filly when I get to a computer. Very nice filly.

          Sorry, just now found this post and wanted to give some information on one of the requested stallions, Tarim.

          Tarim was one of 4 full siblings by the Elite stallion Condus out of the mare Themse II. Tarim himself was an S-level (Inter I) dressage stallion, his full brother Templeritter was also a successful upper-level dressage competitor. The two female siblings were Thila II (more about her below) and Tekoa dam of the GP Jumper, Tzigane *Pb*.

          While in Germany, one of Tarim's more notable daughters, 1988 Trakehner National Champion mare, Gute Sitte (out of a Mahagoni dam) produced a daughter, Gute Gesellschaft (by E.H. Consul). Gute Gesellschaft went on to produce the S-level dressage horse Don Jueves. Tarim was also damsire of the Grand Prix dressage stallion Lamborghini who was successful under Anja Plönzke.

          The sibling that remained in Germany, Thila II put an indelible stamp on the legendary breeding program of Otto Langels @ Gestuet Haemelschenburg thru her daughter, Thiara (by Falke). Thiara produced the Grand Prix dressage horse Thimur (by Enrico Caruso *Ps*E*) and the exceptional Elite mare Thirza - the shining star of the Haemelschenburg broodmare band. Thirza produced 19 foals including the FEI dressage gelding Tylord, 1996 Neumunster Reserve Champion Trocadero and the Trakehner Verband Premium mares Tavolara (by Exclusiv), Teresita (by Alter Fritz), Thalia (by Exclusiv), Taormina (by Freudenfest) and Theresa (by Schwadroneur).

          A winner of multiple ATA HOY Awards and the Trakehner Verband Award (for the most successful purebred Trakehner in Dressage) Tarim was also the 1985 AHSA (now the USEF) National Dressage HOY Intermediare I - Champion and PSG - Champion. Tarim was last owned by Joan Peyton (Avignon Farm) of Upperville, VA. He passed away in 2002 at the age of 27.

            I also took lessons from Mr. Slaski and his wife, Lois. I have a polaroid of Sobek's head/neck somewhere in my house! I used to be a barn rat there and mucked stalls for lessons. I remember Sobek, Hadje ( the black stallion) his name is longer, but I can't remember how to spell it. Hadjdemak or something like that. Winterbrook and Springbrook are no longer there.

              I always wanted a foal by Abdullah. Ever since the LA Olympics, although I did cheer for the mare, Touch of Class.

              I have a mare by Impressionist, due to her being crazy about my Hessen Horse Cloudy.

              Trakehners aren't well liked among the imported warmblood people, I guess because of their intense Arab breeding. Hat Trick, Cloudy's trakehner mare, is very nice though.

              oh wait, old thread!!!

                A friend of mine had a Condus mare back in the late 80's, early 90's. She started out in dressage and then started jumping and she was so talented over fences! Took her to S. FL when she moved and did really well in the hunters, was offered a good price for her. Bred her to Waldaire and had a colt. Then she had some kind of nagging injury, so she sold her as a broodie, but she had some issues getting back in foal. Not sure what happened to her, but she was a very nice mare!

                  This is a great thread! I am the proud owner of a registered Trakehner mare, Cara Dilis. I absolutely love her - she is the bravest, coolest, most awesome mare ever and I will never sell her. She has a handsome yearling colt by Parabol (though baby Ben is registered Oldenburg). Anyway, thanks for your most interesting comments, everyone!

                    I loved Abdullah growing up as well. And Touch of Class. I bred my TB mare to Pg stallion Special Memories by Abdullah out of Kluwall (Touch of Class's dam). And I have the most wonderful coming 5 year old gelding with fabulous movement, jump and a charming personality. I know Special Memories passed recently. I am thankful to have a horse with a little bit of the gold and silver medalists in him. There may be some frozen left.......

                      Yes, there should be frozen remaiing for Special Memories *Pg*. The daughter of SM's owner Dorothy sometimes posts here as Omare. Maybe reach out to her?
