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.

  • Another thread - Jumper stallion for TB

    I know, I know, 10,000 threads on this subject and I've been reading them, so please bear with me.

    I am looking for a Show Jumping stallion to pair with a showjumping champion TB mare (NOT hunter type). The mare is a good rectangular model, long-legged, with a lemme-at-em competitive attitude, a keen jump, lots of personality, very bold, very athletic mare with no vices who is exceptionally intelligent thus always required a witty rider although she is an honest, straight-arrow mare. She's also stayed sound through her racing and subsequent showjumping careers. She was champion at the Calgary June Series (show jumping) this year.

    As like most TB's, she could use a better neck and loin connection although she's not too bad herself, still, it's better to always improve.

    So, I am very specifically looking for GP jumper stallions with excellent type and legs and feet, rideability, abilities, and kind temperament is an absolute must. And, must have proven propensity to improve type, legs and jump whilst maintaining said workable personality. Not asking for much, hey?

    There are a couple fire-breathing dragons in her sireline (2 gens back), but her mareline seems to dominate and is rather high performance line and she follows her mareline.

    Was looking at Balou and sons, some of the Holstein C-line, the KWPN Valentino and Nijhof's Canabis-Z and Zacharov, but would like some additional options (especially since I'm mostly a dressage breeder/rider, so I'm foraying into new territory here and while I've been studying lineages like crazy for the past year, I need a boost from jumper breeders).

    Any registry is fine, as is fresh or frozen.

    Le Primeur ? They are standing him again to the public but you would have to either pick up semen or take your mare there to be bred. I am not sure if he has jumped to GP but if he hasn't I am fairly certain that is not for lack of ability. He has offspring that compete internationally in both Grand Prix dressage and jumping. The one girl that was riding him when Albert was away told me that he is fantastic to ride and that she always rides him last because after riding him everything else feels like crap lol. Anyways, I am no jumper breeder so take my advice for what it's worth but I think he is a stallion we are lucky to have here.

      I agree he is a lovely stallion with nice scores, but having seen him in person, I don't think he really suits this particular mare.

      I am wondering about Cassini II as I read the Cassini brothers can be a bit heavy in type, so if they would do well with a TB?

      Also wondering if anyone has any offspring by the BWP stallion, Eldorado van de Zeshoek (Clinton-Toulon[v.Heartbreaker]-Calypso III)? Holsteiner mareline 2581.

        I really like Apiro. He has some lovely foals. You might want to check him out to see if he would work well with your mare. Good Luck! ����

          Mezcalero. He has sired a GP horse out of a TB mare, I believe his name is Apache.

            I second the Mezcalero suggestion.

              I did not know he has kids doing dressage at that level? In Canada?

                I don't think in Canada. One of his offspring in Alberta is a successful GP jumper by the name of Little Milton but I think most of his older offspring are in Europe. I know one is a GP dressage horse owned/ridden by Ingrid Klimke ..his name is Liostro and he has been scoring in the mid 70's his first year out at GP.


                According to the 2011 stallion book he has already 4 S level dressage horses and 16 S level jumpers.

                  I have seen Milton, nice boy. Of course Lougheed, who did well in dressage in his test (as well as Labiat). LP, himself has great movement but I wondered if you could pass it on. You were going to try him, did you ever?

                      Please take a look at our Tacorde he has everything you ask for. He is a competitive Grand Prix stallion with great legs a very good lion connection and loves his job! One of his offspring was inspected this fall by the Canadian Warmblood National Inspection tour (they use European judges for this tour) and she was the highest scoring mare in Canada with a perfect 10 for her scope! She is also very beautiful bay with three whites and a huge belly spot very much a jumper type. See him on both our website www.kvf.ca and Facebook http://www.facebook.com/KlondikeVictoryFarm?ref=stream
                      He's also in Alberta available both fresh and frozen and offered at $1,500 LFG or $500 per dose. Lorrie

                        I would look at C.Quito. Yes, he does the Hunter Derbies, because that is what his owner wants him to do, and he has the attitude for it. But that horse can jump out of his skin from a canter. We have a colt by him, TB dam, that is very, very nice. I swear he doesn't touch the ground with his front end.

                          What about Bon Balou? He won the jumping portion of the 70DT at Silver Creek with two 10s in jumping - I believe one for free-jump, and one for stadium jumping under the guest riders. And there is lots to like in his pedigree, too - Balou du Rouet / Argentinus / Landadel / Grannus.

                          And there is also Bliss MF, who was reserve champion in jumping, and overall reserve champion at the same SPT as Bon Balou (scoring a 10 for free-jumping in the process). He is Balou du Rouet / Argentinus / Pik Trumpf (Pik Koenig) / Lord Beri xx).

                            Heard lots of great things about C. Quito babies. Also what about Cunningham? He has a full sister who is a GP jumper.

                              I have bred two Landkoenig fillies out of TB mares and two Balou fillies out of TB mares. While all four are certainly individuals the Landkoenig's seem to be a bit more laid back while the Balou's are more sharp. All four are wonderful to work with but I will say one Balou filly definitely would rather be a one person girl (lucky for her she found her perfect forever home!). At the OldNA/ISR inspection the judge commented that the Balou TB cross is not for the faint of heart but is "outstanding for it's ability in jumping", from what I've seen of my girls over poles, I agree. They stop you in your tracks when they move and jump. Since the top two jumping scores at the 70 test were both Balou sons there is no argument that they can JUMP!

                              My Landkoenig's are more bold, I can see where the offspring get their reputation as amateur friendly b/c they are very social, people oriented, and straight forward. Landkoenig's son Lantinus has been #1 in the FEI word rank and his performance achievements are impressive.

                              The first two pics are the 2011 Balou girls & the second two are the 2010 Landkoenig's. I'm happy to post pics of the mares if you'd like.

                              Good luck, picking stallions is such fun!

                                Your list of wants just absolutely described the Caretino son, Carracci. He is very strongly coupled, great neck, good legs and feet and proven both in the ring and in the shed.
                                Here is a video of him being ridden by his then 12 yr old owner: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m_Od16cSjhc

                                A video of a daughter by him named China Blue: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qOE4UZlrbVA

                                He has a fabulous canter, stellar rideability and was handled exclusively by his young rider when they were showing on circuit. He's just recently become available to the public. I jumped at the opportunity and put two German Holsteiner mares to him this year. Semen is rocket fuel. I found his management to be very professional and breeding went very smoothly which is of great importance to me. He is Approved Holsteiner Verband and just recently sBs which has reciprocity with BWP, BWP-NA and Z.

                                Best of luck!

                                  Bon Balou. I saw him at the 70DT, my mare is in foal to him. W-O-W. I have always wanted to breed to Balou but didn't want to try frozen my first time out- after two unsuccessful attempts with another stallion, we switched to Bon Balou and boom, she caught. She is refined, and granted, I do the hunters, but I'm hoping for a derby prospect (who isn't?) and she needs a little oomph added to her hind end. Best of all Bon Balou is a total puppy dog, and I take to that personality. Good Luck!

                                    I've seen offspring of Languster, and they were absolutely amazing. Both (a mare and a gelding) are taller than their sire, i.e., 17+, with super conformation.
