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.

  • Warmblood Stallion

    Looking for input on picking the right warmblood stallion to use for my mare. I have an OTTB chestnut mare about 16-16.2h registered, good bloodlines very nice mare quiet, good mover excellent conformation.... perfect broodmare. I am looking for that stallion that will just improve on her qualities not necessarilly looking to breed for hunter/jumper or dressage more interested in producing an athletic, good conformation, with an excellent brain (a must) foal. Would appreciate some stallions to look into. Thanks

    Sir Sinclair!

    I hate to sound like a broken record (if you research my past posts), but you can't get much better than Sir Sinclair. I know him personally ans well as many of his offspring including my coming 5 year old homebred mare. Sir stamps his get (which is why he has won "Get of Sire" 3 or 4 years in a row at Dressage at Devon). Most look like thoroughbreds or TB crosses. Super friendly, intelligent, willing, and extremely athletic. The Sirs are more of a Sport Horse type rather than an uphill dressage type. They excel in dressage, eventing and the hunter world. My Sir can have 10 days off and I can just get on her and ride her in the wind on the top of my hill. She has very little mileage due to extreme growthiness and alot of time off, butshe already has an incredible work ethic. The Sirs can be a chalenge to fit for a saddle and they are almost too smart. I always say that if mine were a dog, she'd be a Golden Retriever. More of a dog personality than a horse. If you want more information you can get Iron Spring Farm's free DVD. There you can see Sir and many of his offspring. If you want something athletic, supple, capable, kind, and FUN, he's the ticket. Please feel free to PM me for more information. I'm sure I've bored everyone on COTH to tears with my posts on Sir so I'll give it a rest.

        I bred a mare just like yours to Coromino and loved the outcome.

          I'll throw out an Irish Draught Steeped in Luck- dressage I1 and long listed for the Candian Olymipic team. He will give you bone, jump and movement along with a good brain.

            Roc USA... I have heard he crosses very well with TB mares.

              We have a super Darco stallion who would cross nicely with a TB mare. He offers bone, power, balance and lots of jump and he's a sweetie pie!He is approved with BWP and you can see him on our site... Hidalgo Va De Molenberg.

              Happy hunting!

                Look at Gauguin du Cheval

                Gauguin du Cheval crosses well with TB mares. The offspring have great conformation, routinely jump 5' and have all been Class One foals with "9" gaits. They are lovely horses and very athletic.

                  Ironman crosses exceptionally well with TBs. He is very ami-friendly as well as easy to train and work with, traits he passes on to his offspring. Ironman is a very versatile sire, he has offspring winning in all disciples.

                    YES. YES, to Ironman. I have a coming yearling, she is so kind and people oriented. Plus she is gorgeous. I am so looking forward to two year from now when I can ride her. Her dam is TB, and Ironman gave her more bone, substance and a wonderful temperment , plus gorgeous gray color! She is also a 10+ mover.. Watch for her in Hunter Breeding this year.

                    NSM is one of the best, most knowlegeablen and honest horsewomen you can meet.

                        If you are interested in Darco blood, check out Valentino Z. His offspring out of TB mares have scored Premium across registries. Valentino Z competed internationally with Judy Ann Melchior as well as in the US with a Junior at 1.40m. Lots of repeat breeders . He reliably puts a great top line, movement, jump and temperament on his offspring.

                          I 2nd Ronda on Valentino Z. My 2011 filly pictured below is out of a 16.1 1/2 hands TB mare. She is HUGE and very nicely put together in my opinion. I have another Val baby due in the next 30 days and one of my boarders was so impressed with the 2011 filly that she bred her fancy breeding stock paint mare to him. She is due mid to late April. I am breeding one more to him this year,the full sister to this one's mother.

                            I would love to hear more about your mare's pedigree and see pictures of her. We have had several nice foals by Escapade out of our 2 TB mares. We decided last year to cross one of them to Amazing and she is due in less than 2 months. All the foals I have seen by him so far are very nice. I am hoping for a keeper filly from that cross.
                            More information on these two boys can be found at
