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.

    I will start, I have a weanling by Apiro and I loved him so much I re-bred!

    He was a bit of a brat while at his moms side, but now he is a big sweetheart with a ham of a personality.
    He added more bone and height.
    He does have a hunter trot, but so does his dam
    From what I have seen he has a big loopy canter and he has jumped over things in my padlock with good form, but he is only a weanling so he could change.

    I am bringing him to the Royal this weekend, I hope he will do well and make his dad proud.

            I have a weanling by Apiro as well. and all I can say is WOW. Apiro definitely adds bone, seems to throw height although my mare was already 16.2h herself. My colt is a dream to work with, so easy, sweet and smart. he has a great trot-daisy cutter, ground covering and as he gets bigger his trot is getting more dainty. And he certainly has a rocking, huge stridge canter, something that was obvious from a few days old. I haven't seen him jump anything other than a muck tub so I can't comment on that, but Apiro's athletic ability over fences has seemed to carry on into his older offspring from what I have seen. My colt won top colt at his AHS inspection and will be raised as a stallion prospect. All in all, I could not have been more pleased with what Apiro gave me!

            feel free to PM me I can send you photos and videos of my guy

                      I have a 3 year old Apiro gelding. Gorgeous trot AND canter. Super temperament and great conformation. He's a keeper.

                      Have added a picture. Obviously a very "casual" one but shows you his body type.

                        Thanks I love him! I measured him at just over 15h at 6months old :O
                        I am hoping for a keeper filly this time around!

                          My friend has an Apiro, long-yearling, out of a TB mare. He added substance, but did not lengthen the topline (not saying he should or shouldn't, just making an observation based on only one breeding).

                          Very nice personality on the foal, for what a baby's personality is worth. Quiet.

                            The Apiro's trot is more huntery, flatter. He's always had an amazing walk. The dam (TB) also has a real nice hunter movement. The C.Quito colt has the flashiest trot on the place, lots more knee action and suspension. He was born light on his front end, I swear. They are both really nice horses I think!

                              Absolutely love our Apiro colt from this year. Premium GOV colt. Apiro added bone, height, and personality. Great trot and fabulous canter (mom also has good movement), and from how he jumps the logs out in the field I can't wait to ride this one myself!

                                I think all these stallions probably throw different types with different mares.

                                Real question is, how do they improve and not improve on say a fine boned tb, or a old style wb mare?

                                I myself have a very fine boned tb mare that is very flat kneed, so I am looking for different attributes then someone who has a thicker style wb mare that needs refining and such.

                                  That's tough! I would say that they are pretty equal, however the Crown Affair filly is a bit more modern in type and therefore seems lighter on her feet than the C. Quito colt.

                                    this is the key...from everything I have seen, the mare is very influential in the mechanics of movement passed on to the foal.

                                      he was premuim and all that his dam is a Oldenburg Gov and Hanoverian approved main mare book in Gov and the highest in Hanoverian, don't know what thats called.

                                      But who ever said its also about the mare, match the stallion to your mare for the best possible cross, its about what you want and your thought on how to get there, thats the way we have done our matching.

                                        We have had 2 Aprio's and both are incredible in every way. Both may have been a little more sensitive as foals but not at all in a bad way, just intelligent and had that extra something that made you want to look at them. The one of ridding age has proven to be very easy to ride!

                                        You can see the colt here at 3years old http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WYA4uHwugco

                                        and the filly here at 2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n3cFDpRC69w

                                        They are out of different mares, one a TB and the other a TK.
                                        I have heard only to use him on a light mare but honestly I would have to say he did not add that much bone to either.

                                        Also as you can see the 3 year old is a fantastic mover and I understand he has been recently sold to Kenny Wheeler. The 2 year old is also a fatastic mover and probably could be just as sucessful in the dressage ring. She was also bought by a professional who says she is super easy and smart.

                                        He is definetly one of a favorite stallions!! We can't wait to use him again !
