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!

    • 3 Dogs - where did you get that I had a Redwine FOAL for sale? I clearly stated that she is a 2 year old ... So yes - her movement and jump for the hunter ring can be accurately assessed at this age ...

      And that is where we stand right now. She wants to see her through a jump chute (so do I!!! ) and then we'll go from there

        I do know from years at hunter shows...decades ....that most TOP hunters ...depending on your goal...are by JUMPER bred stallions. But that is based on the pitiful data we have. And the mare makes the critical difference!
        This thread has gone on a long time! People's breeding choices or purchases are their own decisions. But as said, why support a crook when there are so many honest stallion owners out there?
        3Dogs, I don't know where you get the idea that people who buy hunter type foals buy them primarily for HB prospects. Of the HUNDREDS of this type foal produced every year, so very few show up in the HB ring. Most of those foals are bought by amateurs who want a high quality animal but can't afford an adult. Most could care less about HB. They keep them at home or board them, whatever, and grow them out until they are ready to be ridden. And that is where the breakdown often comes. They realize they don't have the knowledge to break them, and can't afford to send them to someone who can. We hear of it ALL the time, get the calls from the owners who are STUCK and want us to do it for peanuts. But the numbers in the HB ring simply don't bear out your supposition.

        Secondly, the Redwines produced in the US are only 4 this year, and there are only a few of those. How the heck could their talent be documented? You make it sound like they have tried and failed and that is that! Why don't you sit back and wait a couple of years before pontificating that they will only be 3' or less. We all know you don't like the stallion, for whatever reasons, but you also have never had one, much less several, in your possession to study and test. As we have. So, I really don't think you have a leg to stand on here. You have decreed more than once that Apiro is THE stallion, yet he only has one offspring competing. I'm sure they will be nice hunters, but the DOCUMENTATION you speak of isn't there for his kids, either.

        The Redwine kids, and the Apiros, Just The Bests, Westportes, etc., will all be judged on their merit IF and WHEN they get to the show ring and get that chance. All of that remains to be seen.

          Bolding is mine.

          There are quite a few Just the Best kids competing and doing well. There is an approved Apiro son in Germany, and also quite a few Apiro offspring in Europe doing very well in jumper classes. There is no guessing when it comes to these stallions and their ability to produce offspring that can jump and jump well. There is no guesing because you can look to their pedigree and see the athletic jumping stallions in their lineage, Apriro has the great Argentinus/Pilot. No guessing at all, however when you dont have those great jumping bloodlines, well then you certainly do have to wait and see.

          • No guessing at all, however when you dont have those great jumping bloodlines, well then you certainly do have to wait and see.
            Without taking this thread into a totally different direction, it would have been fun if Rotspon or Rubinstein had been purchased / campaigned by a top hunter trainer in the US and then in later years, would they have become known as a "top" hunter sire??? That could also sire dressage horses out of the right mare?

            I bred my Nightlight (TB) mare to Bliss MF who is Balou du Rouet / Argentinus in his bloodlines. I loved the stallion, loved everything about him and the bloodlines SHOULD come forward into athletic ability but until he actually gets to the show ring, no one knows if he will have the bravery, ability, technique, desire, etc to make it to a top hunter or jumper or event horse. And that is the Big "?" when buying babies or breeding them isnt it ?

            And if "all" the offspring by XX or XXX or XXXX are capable of is the 3' division and they are happy, attractive individuals that can take a joke and do their jobs for their Ammy owners, there is a steady demand for horses that fit into that category too ...

            Back to the subject at hand so we dont go off on totally unrelated tangents

            Are there any updates at all with the work being done behind the scenes?

              Just the Best has produced performance horses for years. There are several Westportes competing this year and winning. and I'm quite sure there is more than one Apiro showing over fences in the US. He had foal crops in Europe as well as in the US.

              So it's not really a question of IF and WHEN. Perhaps as the number of Westporte's and Apiro's showing increases better judgement can be made on their abilities but what's out there now is doing well.

                Important to note also that the connections of Apiro, Just The Best, and Westporte do not rip off their breeding clientele, vets, feed stores, etc., and that their checks to the registries aren't made of rubber.

                  My goodness. Re-read TC's post again (and what you had quoted).
                  It says "They dont CARE who the sire or dam are - they care the youngster in front of them moves and jumps a "10" and they can win with it. "

                  Youngster, not foal.

                  BTW, foals do show their jumping style at a very young age. Watch them at inspections when they jump over the poles as their mom is lead around the triangle. Their jumping style is like a fingerprint, and will stay with them all their lives.

                    I'll second this. I don't care if Redwine or the rest of her stallions and I happen to like Romantic Star quite a bit. Were throwing 100% division and derby winners every time I'd not breed to them because of Jill Burnell's prior actions and history period. They end up owned by someone else and I'd consider it.

                                I couldn't agree with you more! When I ask most amateurs about the bloodlines of their six figure hunters they give me a blank look and don't know and don't care! The market for hunter prospects is primarily amateurs who want a high quality performance horse that can't afford or don't want to pay the high cost of an imported WB ready to go show.

I attend hunter shows around the country...just saying don't see a LOT ...see some mind you...of those "BYH horses"...name change or not...showing up as top hunters years after the fact. Can blame all the contingencies you want...who bought, who trained, was there injury...but it still SEEMS a very dotted line from HB success to performance success! And yes, there may be many opinions what performance "success" means! If horse has a happy home and well loved? That is success!

                                          But that isn't what you said, and what I was disagreeing with. You said people bought foals mostly for the HB ring. I said that is not born out by the few youngsters in the HB ring compared to the hundreds or thousands of hunter type or hunter bred foals that are sold each year. My point was that MOST people buy them, take them "home" and they never see a show ring until going under saddle, if at all.

                                          As far as HB translating to performance, you will have to eat your words soon enough. I can wait! ;-)

                                          Between us, Diane Halpin, Emily Belin, Bill Rube and NBFarm (those are just the ones I know personally), just these people on this BB, you have already begun to see a concerted effort to bring these kids through the HB division and into performance.

                                          And, Junior and I specialize n ALL ASPECTS of young horses, not just HB. We do HB, but that is just a small part of our business.
