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.

  • Stallion suggestions for dressage? # PLEASE READ POST 37! #

    I would appreciate any serious input about the stallion I should use on my mare for next year.

    She has never been bred yet but I need to make a decision soon in order to reserve the semen.

    The is by Laurent (Lauries Crusador xx) out of a Federweisser x Fabriano mare.

    She is currently 3,5 years old and already 172cm high, so I don't think size will be an issue. I really like the way she's built, except for her neck set - its set slightly low and could be a little longer - and her hind leg - a bit straight.

    She's a very light type.

    Her trot is excellent, with lots of swing and suspension. Her walk is good too, but her canter really needs improvement.

    So basically I'm looking for a stallion that throws good canters and lots of power in the hind leg.

    I'll probably be keeping the baby, but we never know how things turn out so the stallion should be a well known one so its makes it easier if I decide to sell.

    Right now my favorites are Weltmeyer and Quattro, but I've been told Earl, Furstenball and Rubin Cortes might work as well.

    I am in Europe so I think it would be easy to get German or Dutch semen.


    I appreciate all help, I'm feeling more and more confused everyday!

      Horses known for improving the canter:
      Don Primero
      Florencio
      Don Romantic
      Don Schufro
      De Niro

      Of these choices, given your other criteria, I would go with Florencio or De Niro =)

        Concetta - I don't really know Rhodium but on a quick search on google I found out he's not approved for hanoverian.

        Trinity - I also love both Don Schufro and De Niro, but their semen is quite expensive. I don't really know what this mare can throw in the table, so I don't know if I am willing to spend too much money...

        Anyway, where can I get De Niro's semen? How good is it?

          I am not being original but I will suggest Dauphin. He is a very correct son of Donnerhall, on the smaller side (16h1) but your mare is pretty tall. He is known for throwing good walk, canter and rideability (ammy friendly minds). His semen is very good (frozen) and not that expensive. He is approved hanoverian.

          Edit to had that a son of Dauphin, by a Fabriano mare, is now under the saddle of Imke Schellekens-Bartels, two times olympian dutch dressage rider.(Don Presidente)

              Just checked a video of Dauphin, he's such a poney! hehehe

              I don't really know what my mare throws, so I don't know if I should use such a small stallion...

              Wolkentanz was an option too, but I heard his semen isn't that good, and for embryo transfer you really need great semen.

              What about Belstaff?

              In terms of bloodlines it would look like this: http://www.sporthorse-data.com/dbtes...damid=10817719

              It would bring back some more Weltmeyer and Bolero blood through Brentano II, and also Donnerhall through De Niro...

                What about Don Frederico or Don Frederic. Don Frederico is known for improving the canter.

                Regarding De Niro, I do not agree that he improves the canter. He brings a lot of other desirable qualities, just not the canter.

                  Don Frederic is a bit too young for my taste, nobody knows what he brings to the table yet.

                  I would like the stallion to bring some Bolero blood, I think it would complement my mare...

                    How about Belissimo M? Very proven, and his son Bonifatius is out of a Lauries mare and stands at Celle.

                      I think Belissimo might have a little too much TB blood. Also, I don't really know Romadour II...

                        How about Bugatti? I have a whale of a gelding by him...you'll have some Bolero blood. Mine has an amazing canter.

                          I was basing my recommendation on his high ranking on the BLUP. His index (for canter) is 140, which says to me that he does typically improve the canter.

                          I don't think DeNiro's canter is all that great but he apparently throws it. I can think of several of his sons that have scored 9 or higher on their canters...

                            I think it is generally agreed that Bugatti tends to throw similar to the mare in terms of substance. My Bugatti filly is SUPER refined, though she will be taller than her dam (I think). He did score 9's on all gaits, though.
                            I don't know if frozen semen is currently available in Europe, either.

                              I used Bugatti on a premium Donnerhall X Calvados mare.. and although I ended up with a gorgeous filly... Definitely did not improve the movement.. I ended up with less then either

                                Based on the Hannoveraner Hengste Yearbook 2009 the canter score was 111 based on results of the mare performance test. 111 is very average to me.

                                Don't get me wrong, I love De Niro. We just bred our mare Farina to him! Based on the tail rubbing signs, I think it took. Official results to follow.

                                  Just looked at Belissimo M, they're asking 1500€ per cover. For a maiden mare, its a bit of a risk. And this would be multiplied for at least 2 because we're inseminating 2 mares with the embryos.

                                    Very interesting, thanks for looking that up. I would believe the German scoring because they have likely had far more offspring to base it on.
