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.

  • Hunter stallion suggestions for Thoroughbred mare

    Anyone want to play?

    15.3 h 2000 Thoroughbred mare (pedigree). Racehorse broodmare turned hunter (I haven't seen them, but apparently all her foals look like her). Looking for a 2015 hunter baby, with improvements to her legs, scope, and stride. I have a couple ideas but I'm curious which stallions others would choose.

    Sorry these aren't square conformation shots.
    Conformation 1
    Conformation 2
    Trot

    Have fun!

      Ironman would add height, stride and scope. He is also well known for the wonderful temperaments on his foals.

        Give us some more info on your mare. What has she done showing wise?

        Is she short strided, nervous, quiet, brave, etc?

        It will help narrow the stallions down. I am assuming you want a hunter foal? To keep, or to sell?

        I also have a 15.3 hand 2000 tb mare that was my hunter. She isn't the same type as your mare, (your mare is longer bodied and bigger boned) but I had great success with Roc USA. He improved her hind end, gave me much more elasticity in movement and gave me brave. Very brave! My oldest is 4 and he could literally walk into the derby hunter class now and never look at a jump. And that did not come from my mare!

        She used to jump x's over the standard. I needed glue to stay on! Her son has an amazing canter and is very slow over the jumps. And his brother is only a weanling but already won his oldenburg inspection! The 4 year old is 16.2 and I think the weanling will probably end up 17 hands.

            I love my Apiro Colt who is out of a half tb mare. My guy is only 7 months old, but I think Apiro added a lot of bone and height to the mare. My boy is also super sweet and well behaved, I think Apiro helped with that as the mare can be a bit hot, even the judge at the Royal commented on how well he was acting and I was the only one he said that to all day!

            I would also love to have a Roc baby one day!
            I am working on getting my tb mare in foal this year as she has been a bit of a pain in the past. Roc is on her list for a keeper for me and the other on the list is Parcival. It might be a bit out of the box and want to put him out there just because I like him. I don't know how many people know about him as he is newer to the breeding shed but has been around showing for a while. I find his pedigree very interesting and have a mare that has similar pedigree that did very well in the jumpers.

              Our Amazing colt is everything we could have ever asked for. So much so we repeated the cross for a 2013 foal and her 2014 foal from Amazing has already sold. I don't think you would be disappointed and Ahna is fantastic to work with. I have found her to be very honest about what her boy brings to the table.

              I have had 4 Escapade babies out of 2 different Tb mares and all we attractive, friendly, nice movers and a joy to work with. Alicia was always great to work with and is very accomodating when it comes to getting swimmer to me. Even when my mare decided to not go by the book.

                My first thought was Amazing or Bliss MF as well. She also looks like she'd cross well with Popeye K as well. I am also a big ROC USA fan. I really like your mare.

                    I hope not to get flamed here but some of the stallions are so opposite in type that even being mentioned in the same list for one mare is rather mind boggling.

                            You mare should be crossed with a stallion with a short topline as she is long in the back. I'd also like to see her rump improved.

                            I do know that crossed with TB mares, Apiro has had lovely children.

                            I would also suggest
                            you take a look at Paparazzo.

                                Cunningham (Cassini I X Iorella/Contender) has phenomenal legs (and feet), scope and stride. He also throws a wonderful, uphill topline, strong loin connection, and excellent bone, although of very modern (not at all bulky) type with a very pretty face.

                                Like the others, I am adding to a list of good suggestions, having loved what I've seen and produced from this particular stallion, especially crossed with TB mares.

                                  thanks - I will go check what the heck is up with the security settings - sorry about that!

                                  And ponygirl - I agree with you - it is everthus - so far only VB seems to have addressed the conformation of the mare - If I can get my darn PB to work, I will put up a picture of my TB mare and the result of the cross with Sir Wanabi - I know others posting do have such shots - good idea as to what is "improved" . While I have seen lots of offspring of the stallions suggested, sadly I rarely have seen the MARE that produced the offspring - but that may be my remiss in not checking websites (mine is miserably out of date - !!!)

                                    IMO...form begets a majority of function & duration of function, so...

                                    If you improve the depth of her rump, making sure to breed to something with quality limbs/hooves, you will address bone & step, possibly scope. Once you find something to address the conformational needs, find something that ensures scope.

                                    C.Quito is a good suggestion, as is Cunningham (though I find Cassini's can run long). I've always liked the hind-ends, bone, and rideability that Darco's, and now Parco's, seem to possess. Nice deep hip, great feet...Not leggy, or particularly uphill, but this is where having a TB is good. One of my most favorite, coveted mares, was a Darco. Amazing mare, the attitude could not be beat.

                                        As VB indicated, your mare needs help with her topline. Given that, and what you are looking to improve in your mare, I'd recommend looking at two recently retired competition stallions: Carracci and Ralando. Carracci is a Caretino son that I'm eagerly awaiting two foals from. He could have easily done the hunters and derbies but was ridden by a junior so USEF rules nixed that . Ralando is a Ramiro son that did well in the jumper ring and then concluded his career as a successful hunter in the A/O and working divisions. They are different types of stallions but depending on your preference, either stallion should accomplish what you are looking for in this breeding.
