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!

  • Selle Francais stallions available in the US

    I have fallen in love with the Selle Francais breed. Google searches have fallen short on finding available stallions here in the US.

    What Selle Francais stallions are available? Frozen or fresh. Especially stallions who produce a good mind (forward, brave and trainable) and a talent towards eventing.

    Just curious to see what's out there.

          I own a 5yr old mare by him who I absolutely adore. This stallion is very old school, and definitely not the "prettiest" but was a powerful jumper who stayed sound for years. His stud fee is very reasonable, it is supporting a good school, and his offspring are quite nice. I have three of his offspring at my place if you want pics, just message me.

                <smile>...thanks Molly! yes, Edelweiss "is" approved in France - not sure why he's not listed on the N.A. Selle Francais site, but will check into it. And, despite being so incredibly bred to jump, he actually competed to Grand Prix in dressage under Catherine Haddad-Staller (who stated he was the EASIEST horse she ever trained to Grand Prix) and under Mette Rosencrantz.

                  You certainly can access frozen by "Diamant de Semilly" and maybe even of "Baloubet du Rouet" or "Quick Star" to name just the top SF stallions.
                  I'm not sure if "Quidam de Revel" clone is available to US breeders.

                    If I am not mistaken, the last Quick Star FS in NA was sold a few years ago. However, I may be wrong and , if so, would be very pleased to be corrected!

                      I've used two SF stallions that are stationed here in Lexington. At Spy Coast, there is Far West who jumped around in France as a young horse and then here in the US for the Caristo's. He's a personal favorite of mine. Grand gentleman with an impressive show record. And then there is Derek Braun's Jetstar du Lozon who is a son of Papillon Rouge. Jetstar competed in Europe with Lars Nieberg and then was purchased and competed by Derek. Sadly, a non-performance related mishap prematurely ended his career. He was approved in Europe. Very, very classy horse. I have a 2011 filly by him out of my Coconut Grove-Final Pool mare that I am quite pleased with and is marked as a keeper filly. Both stallion owners are very good to work with and both stallions have very good fertility. We've also used the Jaguar Mail frozen semen provided by Hilltop ...excellent quality semen.

                              Sakura Hill Farm, I know that Haras des M still has some Frozen from Quick Star, but not sure if it's approved to be exported to the US.

                                Oh man does he look JUST like a gelding I used to own/adore! So I think he is adorable! It would be nice if they had some video or said what the offspring crosses were (besides the dam's name).

                                  SF stallion not listed -- maybe not activated ? I know he is fully approved with the SF.

                                  He was shown in dressage but can jump as well. His dam produced several additional offspring that competed through at least Prix St George level also. I own his half sister by the same dam.

                                  I would think he would produce offspring that could excel in eventing.

                                    I had his first foal for a number of years, I bought him at 4 months old, and sold him last year as a 5yo. He was mellow, easy to ride, good temperament. Not a very fancy horse, but a good jumper. I have video of the gelding I had, and somewhere I have video of the stallion too. My gelding was out of a TB mare. I had another foal by him out of an Arabian mare, and it was actually one of the better moving offspring I've seen by him. Not sure how the jump ended up on that one, I sold her as a 2yo, she had a very good mind too though.

                                    PM if me if you want more info, I'm familiar with the stallion and can at least give you more insight on the offspring that I had. The horse has a very good mind, that's for sure.

                                        Edelweiss De Bonce

                                        Love, love, love Edelweiss De Bonce. I really wanted to use him on my mare Cinnabar, but decided not to breed her again. Whitehedge Farm has a gorgeous yearling filly by Edelweiss that I love. Not only is she stunning, she has a terrific disposition, very in your pocket, but polite about it.

                                        Kathy, my DH and I were in OKC this past weekend and on the way home I nearly had him turn off in Wynnewood... I need to visit one of these days.
