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.

  • Ammy friendly offspring for Hunters

    I'm looking around for my next adult/amateur horse. Don't have a huge budget so figured I should be looking at 1-2 yr olds. What lines do you guys suggest look I for? Any other ideas on where I should look.

    Thanks!

    Escudo I and Cassini I is blood commonly found in the hunter ring. Acodetto has made some really nice hunters. I do know of a striking yearling for sale.

        We have lovely temperaments from Rubignon given to our yearling filly and I've always loved the Landkoenig temperament, although my Pablo four year old has a super temperament now that he's settling down to a show career over fences.

            Really??!! Being in CA I have known of a few that are (for lack of a better way to describe them..) better jumper or event prospects, and not ammy rides. He certainly sires some nice horses, but I don't know that I would buy a 1-2 year old banking on a ammy hunter temperament. Certainly look at them though..but I think saying he never sired a difficult temperament is a little stretch, they have a bit of a reputation for not necessarily being easy.

            Ones I have had personal experience with: A dressage stallion, but Fabuleux sometimes throws a great jump and gorgeous hunter movement with a easy temperament. Landkonig can also do the same, and I have seen loads of them that are sweet as can be and look easy. Don Alfredo is another one. And an older bloodline but also look for All the Gold in the pedigree.

            I am also a big fan of some of the offspring I have seen (via video mind you) of Beste Gold. If I was looking for a hunter prospect I'd probably contact Magic Rose Farm (who posts on here) and see what's available.

                We've had great temperaments on all of our R-line babies and our D-line babies (all are owned by adult amateurs).
                My personal favorite is a Don Alfredo colt that we have...wish every day he was a filly so I could justify keeping him...I just don't show enough anymore and he's too fancy not to be out doing great things. He's a real sweetheart on top of his fancy moves

                  You can look for specific lines, but also ask breeders which individuals have the kind of disposition you are looking for. Sometimes different individuals from the same lines can be very different.

                  I've had great success with Oxford. He's put a super ammy friendly mind on all of the ones I've produced. I've had Oxford out of 3 different mares, and they all had super brains and were the EASIEST to start.

                  Don't forget to look at the mother as an individual and her breeding. She contributes more then 50% of the equation. Her behaviour early in life shapes that of her foals. The development at the farm is also key. I'm a firm believer then ammy friendly horses are raised and developed...it's a lot more then just genetics.

                    All of our Escapade babies have been very easy to work with. We started our 3 year old under saddle ourselves and in less than 5 rides she was packing around our 16 year old daughter. I love their brains.
                    This year we had a colt by Amazing, and if his disposition now is at all an indicator of what he will be like in a few years he will be the easiest by far. He is so agreeable and just loves people. I would highly recommend either. Just thought I would add that ours are all out of TB mares also Good luck in your search.

                        If you are open to Thoroughbreds, my stallion Noles is throwing some very nice hunter offspring. The 2 yr olds are ridden by my junior working students. Taking one of my 3 yr olds to Culpeper tomorrow for my other trainer to see. He's going to be super fancy

                            My Escapade mare has been easy peasy as well, but her dam was pretty well known for producing top quality, ammy friendly horses, so who knows who its from. I like to think a healthy mixture of both :-)

                              Westporte without question!

                              I have 2 offspring and both are amazing and incredibly amateur friendly!

                              West Hampton won the IHF 4 year old championships and is so easy and uncomplicated. Only needs to show now and then and winning in the 3' Pre green hunters.

                              Porte O' Call is so easy to work around and quite flashy!

                                  Of course!! My mares are the same way and I would like to think my handling from an early age plays a roll in it as well LOL.

                                    I have to second this since I got my R-line baby from NHF. Hi Maggie! We also have a ton of Don Alfredo's in my area and they all have had wonderful temperments. My girl walked off the trailer after a 12 hour ride in the middle of the night like she had been doing it her whole life. She is so brave and very sweet. Even forgiving when my ammy self butchers her mane. I have always heard very similar things from others that have R-line babies. Good luck! I am having so much fun with my yearling and time really flies. The first yearling I bought is 11 now! I still can't believe it.

                                    Edited to add: My experience finding mine was really fun. I started by finding stallions I liked and found out as much about them as possible. I looked at as many offspring as I could and then I searched for a breeder that used the stallion if the actual SO didn't have any that fit the bill. I was lucky in that I have an A/O friend who brings her own along and sent her the info of the mares for her opinion which was invaluable.

                                      I have not seen Bill's offspring but I have a related 4 year old (through the G-line) and the line has AMAZING temperaments. You can trust these horses. Intelligent and very human oriented and trusting without being deadheads.

                                        Agreed! I have one mare whose foals all just pop out as laid back as the day is long. They are friendly and easy from before they even stand up!

                                        As for stallions, I would say Ideal. The temperament is there and he really passes his incredible jump. http://www.ultimatepiaffe.com/jumpers.htm
                                        However, you won't find very many 1-2 year olds available due to his older age. All the ones I've known were very friendly, forgiving, easy-going, and fun (though occassionally can be too smart for their own good or too pushy if they were raised by someone passive or not knowledgeable about raising youngsters)
