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!

  • Trakehner Stallions from back in the day....

    so it's gloomy and rainy and my feet are cold and this has crossed my mind in a "Where are they now" kinda thing...

    I'll name a Trakehner stallion and you guys tell me what became of them professionally....either in the performance area or in the breeding shed...what discipline ?

    and if they did not "do well"....why if you feel brave... they are at least 20 yos old if they are not dead and gone

      I'd actually have to look up off spring on several but Target I know immed. He's no longer w/us. Was not majorly bred but what he had did well and prob Larissa is his best foal. She is a mare (still alive) who did very well in eventing. I forget how many World Championships, Olympic, Three *** and Four **** etc that she competed in.

      Meistersinger did quite well in dressage (Grand Prix?? Would have to look) site of mult other UL dressage horses. Has an approved son, Krechendo.

        I got to see both Falke and Tarim in person. Gorgeous boys. Judy Yancey owned Falke and brought him to a Trakehner annual meeting in Ohio in the 80s. I swooned over him.

          Fabius, Tropez and Sigurd were owned by Anita Hunter here in Redlands. The Hunters moved to the northwest. I don't know the status of the stallions but they should be long gone by now.

          Fabius had two nice approved sons. I think both are available frozen.

            I have always wondered about my Hanoverian/Trakehner cross mares Trakehner side. Not much information exists of her Dam sire "Sobek" or his sire "Fresk". Supposedly Fresk was a pretty good eventer in Germany. Anyone know these two at all?

              I think Flora Jean has retired Windwalzer. Saw him a couple of years ago in California at the ATA meeting. He is a magnificent creature. Very noble and kind in his expressions.

                Sobek is by Fresk, the only Polish Trakehner horse listed among the top ten producers of event horses, the remaining nine being thoroughbreds.

                Fresk's dam's sire, Rumian, is the son of Rittersporn, the originator of famous European jumping lines. Rittersporn is by St Saulge. He sired female jumpers Warszawianka and Wizja, both becoming Olympic mounts. His three most significant stallions were Rumian, Rybak and Ramzes.

                The line produced by Ramzes is legendary today with one of the greatest descendents being Ramiro.

                Sobek also descends from Bafur who produced three stallions who competed in the Olympic Military event including Arlekin II who won the Silver Medal.

                Sobek's dam is Sobietaka, thought to be one of the most valuable mares in Trakehner breeding in Poland. Sobietaka produced three colts who won gold medals in the national stallion competitions and who became head stallions at state studs.

                From: http://www.middletonmeadows.com/Horses/olando.htm

                Pedigree of Sobek: http://www.americantrakehner.com/Sta...tive/Sobek.asp
                Nothing with horses is ever easy or cheap. And if it is, you're doing it wrong. They always rip out part of your soul when they leave. I guess that's how they find us later.

                    Thank you Twelvegates...that is the most information I have seen yet on her Trakehner side. More impressive than I imagined. No wonder why she is so good at eventing! Her mother was GP at dressage...never had been jumped, and I had assumed she was dressage bred. I had heard from someone Fresk was supposedly a good eventer, but thats all I knew.

                        In 1978, in New Jersey, I took some of my very first dressage lessons from Major Vitold Slaski. He and another man (who I saw STILL showing about three years ago at the New Jersey Horse Park) Marty Bregman, had two facilities right across the road from each other, called I think Springbrook and Winterbrook. Anyway, Major Slaski was Polish and just when I was there he imported a Trakehner stallion named Sobek from Poland. He was a chestnut and I think must have been one of the first ones imported. Some years later I lived in Connecticut and rode with Melanie Tenney and a young guy (now dead) named Calvin Harrington. Turns out Sobek had been sold to University of Connecticut and Cal was riding him some--I think eventing. My friend (met her at Melanie's) Meredith Hoag had a filly by Sobek. But I don't think he ever did much competition-wise or had much success in the breeding shed. Looks like he mostly was used to produce event horses.

                        Also after I moved to Maryland in 1986 I became involved with PVDA and saw a lot of Meistersinger. He was owned by Larrrine and Russ Abolt who had Water's Gift in Burtonsville, Maryland. He did show through FEI with Felicitas von Newman-Cosel and then Kelly Weiss who I believe was an ex-figure skater. Kelly and Meistersinger participated in an exhibition that I helped organize at Gunston Hall in Virginia (we showcased a bunch of horse stuff) in about 80 zillion degree humid weather in around 1994 or 5. The Abolts sold Water's Gift and moved to I think Meistersinger was sold or they took him with them and later sold him. I believe he is dead now.

                                    Thanks rebecca....I even pulled out my mares mothers paperwork to see if she wasn't the one your friend had, but no, she was bred in NJ by a lady named Alison Godfrey Dardek. I bought the mare with my mare in utero, but she did come from NJ.
                                    I didn't even know that Sobek was in our country...I thought he was overseas. Of course, he is sure to have died by now or I would have loved to have seen him! Was he tall? My mare and her dam were smaller...15.2.

                                      Tamara in TN--I can fix you up with your first Trakehner horse if you would like! We are few in numbers but are beginning to make progress! Especially in eventing. They are smart, tough, and gorgeous to look at. Several breeders in Tennessee always have quality young stock for sale at a reasonable price. The Volunteer State does a good job producing sane and sound Trakehners. The ATA is like an extended family and the mission statement says it all--goal is to promote and protect the Trakehner breed in North America.

                                        Anybody heard of Boraks. I had a foal by him many years ago (Many years ago!) He stood in B.C .but I think I last hears of him working cattle in Texas.
                                        He was one of the first warmbloods up here - back in the day.
