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!

  • WARMBLOOD STALLION SUGGESTIONS FOR 2013

    I am a small time breeder in Maryland. I have bred Welsh ponies since 1995 and recently have bred a couple KWPN approved foals as well. I understand the bloodlines and appreciate them but tend to lean much more towards breeding for talent and purpose rather than breeding for the "blood". I have 2 mares I am looking to breed this spring both have been wonderful broodmares in the past. I have always competed much more geared for the Jumper arena but lately with my last 2 Dutch offspring, undeniably more suited for the Hunter arena, I have switched gears.
    Long story short I am open to any and all suggestions for suitable stallions for these two mares. (Hoping to get my Jumper out of the bay one Heaven Sent) I know there are many far more knowledgeable people on here then I am and am truly always willing and eager to be educated....!!

    Both Mares are Jockey club approved and are bred pretty well (a lot of black type), also approved for KWPN breeding.

    ***Both Mares can be viewed here*****

    Price ceiling per stud fee:$2,000

    Lady of Dover- Hoping to get a Hunter type foal, Fabulous Mover!!(not very tight with the front end O/F), Very Easy and Laid back temperament! Looking for a shorter coupled stallion because this mare is too long in the back for me, something also that will add height to her 15.2 stature, and I find her kind of ugly in the head. (my 12.2 pony stallion pretty-ed her head right up with last 2 foals)

    Heaven Sent-(wish I could clone this one and make it 17hh) Looove this mare! Super athletic mare, fabulous jumper, very light to ride, tries soo hard, jumps fabulous from any distance! Last foal is Lovely (sire is ISF Judgment) but I know there is potential with this mare to have something spectacular. This will be her last foal she is 20 this year.
    Any Help Appreciated...

    So when you say they are Jockey club approved, are you actually saying they are registered with JC and approved for KWPN? I dont think JC approves anything other than JC.

        I think I would use "Just the Best" for a nice KWPN hunter.

        I of course love Ironman, but I doubt you want to breed Gray x Gray. Here is my Ironrose by Ironman out of a TB mare: http://www.herselffarm.com/images/Be...esized_web.jpg more: http://www.herselffarm.com/IronRose.html

        For a jumper, you may want to consider Legaczy http://www.newblessingfarm.com/Stallion.php While he is a hunter stallion, his sire Alla Czar is by Zeus one of the best jumper sires of all time. His dam is by Buntspecht de Lauzelle, who jumped 7 ft at the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto. Plus Legaczy is here in Maryland.

        You could also consider Ironman for a jumper foal as he himself was an accomplished Grand Prix Jumper.

        All the stallion owners above are terrific to work with!

            Apiro might be a good choice for Lady of Dover for a nice hunter foal or Cunningham..
            Couple others for LOD: Concerto Grosso, C. Quito, Crown Affair

            For Heaven Sent and its her last foal I would pick something proven:

            You could do Cunningham on her as well or Balou Du Rouet, Indoctro, ROC USA.. Etc..

            Look at the leading sires for the last few years on USEF and who has the most offpring performing at the levels you want to ride..

            I know Indoctro is always in the top 5.

            Good Luck! I love a great TB!

                Amazing would fit your criteria for Lady of Dover. He has a fantastic front end over fences, pins well in the hacks, and is a giant puppy dog to boot. He is short coupled and is passing this along to his offspring.

                  Be sure to check out our boy Beste Gold. He will add some size, passes along gentle intelligence, exceptional inner qualities, very good rhythmic movement and incredible scope. Most of his babies are first young horses ( keepers from their favorite mare) for Amateurs. He is the sire of Beste Intentions (showing in MD) , Dr Deb Kelly's Beste 4 Me and Elizabeth Lubrano's All My Beste. All of these are the first of his offspring in the hunter rings and are all showing great promise. We invite u to the farm to see other younger offspring in person.
                  In between growth spurts, some of these have been very successful in hand as well.

                    I reeealllly like my Just The Best- very very feminine, pretty head and athletic. Although may not be what you're looking for in height- I bred a 16hh Rio/XX mare to him 16.1(I think is what he is) and should end up with 16.1/16.2 filly. She is very short coupled, well put together and is supppper amateur friendly. Does not care about a thing in the world.

                      So why did the mods edit one post from an SO for an "advertising violation", but leave other posts from other SOs recommending their own stallion? What am I missing regarding the advertising policy?

                        IMO the moderators have always been inconsistent in application of the advertising policy. Generally, stallion owners have been exempt and this extends to offspring they have for sale.

                          For Lady of Dover, I'd look hard at Balt'Amour. Conformationally, he's a sure bet at strengthing her topline and hind end and helping her front end jumping technique without the risk of losing her movement.

                          Heaven Sent... do you have a conformation picture? What do you want to improve?

                            I second the recommendation of Balt'Amour for Lady of Dover. He has an exceptional top line and lovely form over a fence.

I have been talking with them quite a bit about this potential cross. Have you heard of their other Stallion Bliss?! Im impressed with him as well and he did fabulous at his Stallion Test . Was thinking of that one for my Bay mare Heaven sent... also attached a picture of Heaven Sent, I couldn't find on my work computer a conformation photo but attached the ones I did have. I love everything about this mare, temperment, conformation and how freakishly atheletic she is. She is small (which never was an issue for her at all) but I would like to get a foal to at least the 16.1 mark. Her topline is the only thing if im being really picky I would like to improve and her croup slopes off at a little bit too much of an angel but those would be the only two areas I would need to work on. Shes put together wonderfully! I appreciate your feed back and help!

                                FWIW I think Apiro is an outstanding cross to a TB. Every single one - and there are a lot to see- have his outstanding topline, uphill frame, great movement, and are incredibly attractive. They jump well too. And he is has proven himself in the hunter ring at 3 6 and in the Working hunters.
