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.

    It is just a shame Lotus T is so tall! Most of my mares that I've had are 16.2+ and I I've seen Lotus T throw size, I just don't want that size....

    Check out EMCO stallion services, she has a bunch (including Hannibal, catherston dazzler, future illusion, Catherston Liberator, Welton horses and Opposition Supremacy )

          Really? And why don't I know about her??? LOL Which Lotus mare is the dam? Being the owner of the dam's sire and owning quite a few Lotus mares myself, I am very curious.

            I also own a young Lotus T son, Logan T. His dam is an imported former GP jumper mare, Femina (Merano I X Aldato) with a lot of TB in her as well: Marlon xx, Anblick xx, Chitet xx . Logan, for whatever reason is only 16.1 and in his first testcrop, produced a couple of really cool babies. Can't post pics, but the link is a Logan T filly, out of a former event mare.

              Szipi, My mare is Deovolente, bred by Nicole Kuhn Johnson and her Mom. She's produced two fabulous foals so far. One by Disconto, the other by Super Star. She's back in foal to Disconto and due May 2013. With the way her Super Star filly is maturing, I'm planning to breed her back to him after she foals.

                I see Andras who owns Lotus T has already chimed in here. Rosemarie Merle-Smith who owns and Stands Concerto Grosso also posts here under the name Groro.

                My foals next year are out of a Lotus T sister and sired by CG. I'm very excited to see this cross. Technically I'll be losing a little "blood" but CG has been so consistent and my Lotus sister actually has a lovely gallop hidden behind her easy going personality. Jumping ability is there on both sides. I'm very excited for this cross

                  The Cruising stallions have more than proven they can produce eventers. Flex is the greatest dam in Ireland and perhaps one of the top broodmares in Europe. Absurd he is not being used more.

                    Will Denny stand Beaulieus Quissini? There's another fabulously well-bred QDR son whose name is escaping me, and I think he's only offered via frozen, so I haven't kept up with him.

                      I, personally, am very interested to see what the recently approved (ATA) stallions Sea Lion and Virginian Sky produce. Sea Lion has one of the most impressive eventing performance records of any North American stallion, being successful at 3* level and making it to Rolex this year. Virginian Sky has quite an interesting pedigree, being more than 75% TB blood with a dose of Shagya from the eventing sire, Bajar. Both seem like interesting eventing sires.

                          Sea Lion will be at Rolex, that is the goal anyway, last I spoke to Pam. I stalk... I have his full sister, who I adore, so I am a big fan. If he is anything like her the temperament cannot be beat... she is sensitive and forward but the kindest horse I have ridden, she truly looks out for her rider every step of the way. Love her (and him!).

                            My ideal tb event sire must be a FANCY mover, as well as having a great mind and jump. He must be proven to throw it. Otherwise, why bother to breed for it, you can pick up great ottb prospects to event. A Fine Romance fits the bill.

                              So, so pleased to see Super Star has already received a couple of recommendations. I have said this before and will continue to say it: Super Star is one of the best stallions available to eventers in the US. He crosses well with TBs, WBs and ponies. You get refinement, brains, movement, and a gorgeous lofty jump.

                              As an added bonus, you get a super-shiny coat that you don't have to clip in winter.

                              This is my Super Star mare. Her dam is a full TB. Super Star comes from one of the Akhal-Teke lines that has some TB blood mixed in generations back, so he and his family are not the more traditional long and greyhoundy AT types. You won't get that from him.

                              I plan to breed to him again this spring.

                                Thank you JER, we are thrilled to hear you plan to use him again this spring. He is an out-of-the-box stallion to pick based on his breed. But, he consistantly produces beautiful conformation, type, movement, character, and scope! Thanks again JER, for your loyalty to this stallion!

                                  He's another only available w/frozen.

                                  Hunter (Heraldik/Alcatraz) - another frozen only option.

                                  Super Star is very interesting, and you can probably count on prepotency or at least consistency. Both important.

                                  Any word on the Ciceras Icewaters? I looked at Lotus before, and size was a concern. I bred to a 16h stud w/no size behind him & still ended up w/a 17h monster, go figure.

                                  While we're discussing frozen...One that I think could throw a great UL horse is Quintender. Watched him gallop & was sure he was a TB until I inquired, overall very light on his feet - so you'd have to consider that . I'm sure I hear his female rider giggling, and I would be too, if I was playing w/him over-fences. Struck me as a horse who would rather work than meander; a TB-like mentality. He has high breeding indexes, though he's been bred to some top mares, which doesn't hurt.

                                    Aha! This is where Daisy (Deovolente) ended up. I was always wondering, since I thought she was an incredibly talented filly with a great brain. Has she done anything sport-wise? Also, I am sure you know, but she's 85% TB - doesn't look it, does she ?

                                        I have three stallions in Maryland -- Cimarron (Holsteiner) who is a former #1 USEF leading sire of event horses, Mt. vidmore (TB) whose oldest foals with me are 3yo, and Quasar (Cleveland Bay x TB) from a successful family of eventers and dressage horses, oldest foals are yearlings.

                                          Concerto Grosso, and Ciceras Icewater, are very nice (probably underused) stallions. I'd love to hear more bout their get.
                                          We have a yearling filly by Ciceras Icewater who is just lovely. We are very pleased with her and plan to breed back to him again in the future.

                                          I always feel that people overlook Royal Appearance who stands at VA tech. He has more WB but crosses well with full TBs. Sharon White has been riding our coming 5 y/o Royal Alyance and is quite pleased with him. We also have a coming 4 y/o Royal baby out of a Comet Shine mare who is going to be pretty special.

                                          If you are breeding to a full TB, you have a lot more options. We aim for around 70 to 80% blood for our upper level prospects. I don't think we will have a wealth of eventing stallions to choose from until more breeders are breeding for eventing; however, I do think interest is growing within the USEA and UL rider community to build more of a home based breeding program. Fingers crossed anyway.......
