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!

  • Silver Creek Stallions?

    Watching the live feed of the RPSI inspection at SilverCreek Sporthorses, I was wowed by some of the offspring of their stallions. Who has babes from this impressive line up? Apiro? Vallado? Landwerder (the fine old gent) in particular?

    Love to see them if any of you have offspring!

    I love my Landwerder (aka Silver Lining) 3 year old filly. Rideability just doesn't get any better than hers!

    I also love Cathalido. I bred a Holsteiner mare to him and was really happy with the result. He is a sire that consistently outproduces himself. He really stamps his offspring.

    I have no experience with the other stallions but I really like Sixpound's 2008 Vallado foal. I've also been really impressed by Apiro's offspring.

    What I like best is that Silver Creek has made the stud fees and other costs very afforable for mare owners. Maybe some day they will consider buying a dressage stallion. [Hint, hint] lol

      I too appreciate the quality they offer at a great price - with frozen being so cost-efficient and convienent (for those of us with great repro vets of course!), I think it is a great incentive to stay competitive with that market.

      And Landwerder is great - I am really surprised he isn't used more here - considering he is a full brother to Landor S (who plays quite the role over at the Sosath's), and a son of the wonderful Landadel. If my mare was just a little shorter through the back, she would have had a date with his box

        If I had a chance, a good mare, some extra change lying around I might consider Autobahn for a dressage foal. I know he is a jumper, but I see something special there.

        I love Landwerder. I just adore him to pieces.

        I do not have any offspring from any of the stallions but those two would be my top picks. I believe Landwerder is worth his weight in gold temperment-wise! The other boys are wonderful, don't get me wrong.

            EquineLVR... ditto the Autobahn comments. He is amazing and what a motherline! Stamm 776... the #1 stamm in the world for sporthorse production! I bred my beautiful Latano II/Caletto II stamm 4 mare to him for a 2009 foal. Can hardly wait to see that foal!!

                Silver Creek

                My partner and I bred quite a few to their boys this year and the customer service was tops! They bred a Prince Habish mare to Apiro, a Lando mare to Apiro and a Best of Luck mare to Cathalido. We also bred our Elite Voltaire mare to Cathalido.

                We previously bred a mare to Landwerder and had an OUTSTANDING hunter prospect.

                  Amy, I couldn't agree with you more! I took my 3 yo filly today on a day trip to a local h/j stable and she was perfect in every way. I unloaded her, tacked her up, hopped up and off we went - w/t/c. She never spooked or even looked at a thing. She worked with other horse in the arena and never became distracted by him or the other horses and people in the isleways who were tacking up and untacking. Today was the first time she was ridden away from home. She is such a joy to be around. Today was a wonderful day and I'm on cloud 9. I'm so proud of her.

                      Here's a video clip of a 2008 Cathalido foal out of a Holsteiner mare, bred by Walkabout Station in Texas.

                      This is a video clip of the 2007 colt out of the same Holsteiner mare, bred by yours truly.

                          I will echo everyone's sentiments on how wonderful Silver Creek is to work with. They are professionals in every sense of the word. I also appreciate that they have made such nice stallions available to mare owners for very reasonable fees.

                          I bred mares to Vallado and Landwerder last year, but sadly lost the Landwerder filly shortly after birth.
                          I have bred two mares to Silver Creek stallions again this year, Cathalido and Apiro.
                          Autobahn is on my short list too!

                          I am thrilled with my Vallado colt, Thank you very much for the nice comments on him. I would have bred the mare back to him this season had he been available when she was ready, but he has been sent off to work toward his performance requirements in the Jumper ring.

                          Here are some recent photos of my little man, Diablo. He is just over 3 months old.

                              I LOVE 6#'s Vallado colt! He is definitely drool-worthy.

                              Wanna see Maybach free jump? I hesitate posting it though because of her "baby belly" which is slightly swinging. She's about 4 months along now and has lost her "girly" figure. It's not my fault though! She's just an easy keeper!

                              BTW, no one asked her to jump. She did it all on her own.

                                    I leased out my TB mare to someone last year and she produced this lovely colt by Cathalido on July 19. Here he is at about a week old. He has legs for days!

                                      I heart Apiro

                                      I got to meet Barbara and Apiro in Gulf Port last year. I've always liked Apiro from the get go and when I met him in person I was blown away! He just ate up the camera and posed like a model. He's such a ham! Barbara was awesome to talk too and she was very nice. When I have the money I will be breeding my mare to Apiro.

                                      I mean, what's not to like about this sexy beast?

                                        I saw Vallado in person at the spring RPSI Stallion Testing at Silver Creek this year. I was very impressed with this guy and even though he does hunters, I think he could be very successful as a dressage horse.
