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.

  • Stallion suggestions please

    I am looking for a stallion for the 2013 season to breed a TB mare to. She has a great mind, good basic gaits, and has a good jump. I am looking for a stallion with a strong loin and well angled hind legs. Her trot also needs some improvement, but I still need to be able to sit it . I would also like to add a little quickness off the ground for jumps and MUST have a good mind!!! I compete in eventing and would love if the future baby could go intermediate to advanced. Do to vet restrictions the stallion must be available via cooled semen to the US. I have a few stallions I have looked at but really want to expand this search. I don't have a breed preference. Sheen is big so height isn't a huge concern, just want something between 16-17ish hands. Great mind, soundness, and work ethic are my biggest concerns

    Windfall or Stiletto have both done it and produced it.

      Hi please take a look at our boys we stand five stallions and are available to ship fresh to the US. Zeno (Quattro x Burgraaf) is a lovely mover and several of his babies have been bought as upper level event prospects. Talme (Wellington x Alme) also has interesting bloodlines and also a great gallop and super brave.

        Windfall is a bit out of my price range and Sheen has a grey family on the sire side and I really would prefer bay or chestnut she is bay but I know she caries a grey gene as well as a recessive chestnut gene, all behind her dominant blood bay coloring . Thank you for the suggestions please keep them coming


        • #5
          FYI - you will not get a grey unless one of the parents is a grey regardless what their other family members are.... so if you breed your bay mare to a non grey horse you won't get a grey . (there aren't too many hard and fast givens but this one).

            Grey is dominant. If a grey gene is present, the horse will be grey.

            The following is not mine, but a good quick explanation of grey:
            Many people do not realize that grey is not a distinct, separate
            color. Because it is so common, it is often classified along with bay,
            chestnut and black as a "basic" color. However, all grey horses are
            also either bay, chestnut or black, in addition to being grey. This is
            because the gene for grey (G) is a modifier which, over time, replaces
            the original dark hairs with white hairs. In other words, grey is not a
            color, but rather a gene responsible for the progressive loss of the
            original hair color. Because the gene affects the hair, and not the
            pigment in the skin, grey horses retain the black skin they were born
            with, which makes them easy to distinguish from horses that are truly
            In regards to inheritance, grey is what is termed a simple
            dominant. This means that if it is inherited, the effect (progressive
            lightening of the coat) will be visible. It is not possible for grey to
            remain "hidden" in a breed for generations and crop up unexpectedly;
            the grey gene will lighten the horse no matter what other colors,
            modifiers or patterns are present. For this reason, a grey horse will
            always have at least one grey parent. Statistically, a grey horse will
            produce 50% grey foals, unless he carries two grey genes
            ("homozygous" for grey), in which case all his foals will be grey. -Lesli Kathman

            Concerto Grosso is a good cross on a TB mare and one of the best bargains out there IMHO. His son Counterpoint did very well in the YEH classes and is now showing in the young jumpers. He seems to be very fertile. We used him twice and the mare conceived first try both times. I hear this is pretty much the norm.

            Cascani sired Fleeceworks Cinco but he IS grey and you must be able to time your breeding very well -be ready for same day insemination and running a counter to counter shipment of semen.

              Take a look at Carracci. Exceptional rideability, fabulous canter, a good dose of blood with Grundyman as his dam sire, and very strongly coupled.

                Love what I have seen of him so far . Waiting for conformation photos of him

                  Consider Holsteiner stallion Lotus T - he is 70% TB and he has proven that he produces phenomenal horses out of TB mares. He was also named by potentially the best event sire in North America by the USEA magazine in an article based on his breeding and his performance at the 100-day testing.


                  • #10
                    another good cross is ROC USA.. he has TB blood as well.

                      My SWB stallion, Gauguin du Cheval 9054 has produced an approved stallion son from a TB mare and a Jumping Diploma mare from a TB mare. He has a strong loin and is short coupled. He personally evented for a single year and competed successfully through Prelim always double clean (sometimes time faults) and usually won the dressage. He is 35% TB and 5% Shagya Arab. See my facebook page for a breeding special. https://www.facebook.com/TeamGauguin

                      I should mention that he has won 3 USDF HOY awards - both under saddle and been the USDF Mature Stallion Champion HOY. He passes along his gaits!
