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.

    Both my CI babies were very tall ( 17+), and very athletic. One did not care for open spaces and will be an eq horse. The other is going to the jumpers. The owners wanted more $ than they could get for an event horse

            Correct you are Omare! Stallions participating with proven eventing (Prelim or above) offspring include: Abdullah *Pg*E*, Incantare, Sea Accounts xx, Stiletto *Ps*, Titulus *Pb*, Tzigane *Pb* and Windfall *Pg*.

            SSA participating stallions that have evented @ Prelim or higher themselves: Abdullah *Pg*E*, Ballzauber, Inamorato, Incantare, Sea Accounts xx, Sea Lion xx, Special Memories *Pg*, Stiletto *Ps*, Tagaelen, Tatendrang, Tradition *Pb*, Tzigane *Pb*, Virginian Sky and Windfall.

            Apologies to any stallions or offspring missed or misplaced - this list has grown tremendously in the past few years (a nice commentary on the breed's re-emergence in the sport).

            The link for "SSA window shopping" will go active mid-January; SSA takes place Feb 1st - 14th, 2013.

              Concerto Grosso and Cicera's Icewater

              Time for me to chime in as I am the owner of Concerto Grosso and as a owner four Cicera's Icewaters.

              I bred my imported Voltaire-bred Selle Francais mare to CI almost 9 years ago because his dam, Cicera, is a full sister to one of the top producers of 4* event horsein the world, the Irish Cavalier Royale (SF-Hol)., I was looking to produce eventers that could also be successful in the jumper ring if they didn't like the wide open spaces.

              My gelding, Cappuccino Ice, the eldest of three, moved up to Preliminary at the Virginia Horse Trials with my daughter and was part of the winning Adult Team Championship Preliminary Team, Movin' On Up. He is a dream to have, but I will say, he has a spook in him when hacking out that could unseat the best rider in the world who wasn't prepared for it. He is one of the few horses I have ever owned that my daughter's trainers say is a professional ride.

              She rode with Denny E. last March and asked him when he thought she should move him up to Preliminary, and he told her when Training was easypeasy. Her biggest problem with him was that he would jump her out of the tack at the spooky jumps and then run away on cross country. We sent him to Jason Berry in August so he could ride him in the jumpers at Culpeper HITS for two weeks straight learning how to be a gentleman. We then sent him to our vet's husband, Thorston Kramer, a Grand Prix dressage trainer, for some flat work. It all worked. Jason wanted to keep him for the jumpers and Thorston had him ready for the piaffe! We discovered that for bits, less was better. Loose nose band, fat plastic eggbutt in dressage and a Waterford for jumping.

              My daughter will be taking Cappuccino Ice and his two sisters to Ocala next week. Our hope is that Chino will be ready for Intermediate by the end of the winter season and the two girls learning the ropes in the lower levels.

              We bred Concerto Grosso (who by the way is 1/4 Thoroughbred through his maternal grandsire, Koenigspark xx) to both of Chino's sisters. I think the cross is great as CG settles down the spook of the C.I. blood and levels out the movement in front. My fourth Cicera's Icewater is out of a Merano-Landgraf. None of my Icewater babies is over 16 hands including this one whose dam is a monster 17hands. The Concerto Grosso cross on the fourth CI produced a very light, balanced filly who was the Reserve Champion foal at the 2012 Dressage at Lexington show.

              I think some breeders make the mistake of breeding their light boned mare to a big stallion with tons of bone, not considering or knowing what those bloodlines might produce. I think Concerto will produce an above average sized foal with refinement if the maternal grandsire is not too coarse. CG was bred to several big mares this season and it won't bother me if they are big as well. I have yet to see one that isn't really, really athletic.

              You can see photos of the Cicera Icewater and Concerto Grosso offspring on my web site below.

                Concerto Grosso and Cicera's Icewater

                I forgot to mention that both boys have and produce huge, ground covering, uphill balanced canter strides that one needs to make the time needed for todays cross country courses.

                For your enjoyment, a video of Concerto Grosso's 1/2 brother, Calle Cool, winning the 2012 Hamburg Derby, reputed to be one of the toughest tracks in the world.

                  The original poster asked does Roc USA have any foals out eventing. I am not aware of any that are currently competing. That being said, we did breed a few mares for a few of the O'Connors clients. Those foals are only yearlings, maybe two year olds this year.

                  I am certainly not a guru on eventing breeding, but I do think Roc is the right type to produce eventing horses, especially when bred to a tb mare. These foals are fast, brave and want to please.

                    Great info, thanks! I know my German friend likes to see Grundyman xx in a pedigree - for both riding horses & broodmares, which says a lot as her breeding decisions for auction vs future breeding stock vs the sport horse can vary greatly. Nobility & 'makes a good riding horse' were the exact words. Which makes Carracci another interesting possibility, he sure looks game.

                    CG is a cool horse, particularly well-suited to a nice TB mare for sport, and will make a very good broodmare, IMO of course. Just a tad photogenic, too.

                      Brave, wanting to please - all very useful stuff, because a talented chicken can be a heartbreaker. Look at Mandiba. Sometimes they can get over fear of open spaces, but, you really have to love them & see something in them...I own one of these. Thankfully he's a rock xc now(and was always brave o/f), but, still not a horse I enjoy hacking in new surroundings. Its important to discuss lines that might lend towards backwards-thinking or open-spacce issues when breeding the event-horse.

                        SO true! My boy is going to be 5 this year (he's by Sempatico) and from the time he was little he was brave and loved to take off galloping through the pastures and jumping the irrigation ditches. When he was 3 we did a lot of trail riding alone. So in 2012 when we started eventing, he had no issues with it. He LOVES the open spaces and nothing much phases him - going out hacking alone not an issue either. He prefers being brave in the open to being in the arena, and I love cantering him around the bridle paths on our rolling hills. He's not hot at all (I've had that before in an OTTB) and best of all, he's HONEST.

                          Same issue that I had with him. Lovely stallion, just not the right fit for my mares (one who is already 17.2 and another whose first baby is HUGE). He might work for the newest TB mare though.....just hate that I would be certain to get a chestnut filly


                          Love my Grafenstolz colt out of a TB mare. I will be repeating the cross. Would love to get a hold of some semen from Royaldik.

                          I watched the Jaguar Mail son out of Headley Britinnia at the YEH championships at Burghley. He was nice. Not super big but they had kept him a stallion. So perhaps JM isn't producing the monster sized foals I was worried he would but Headley Britinnia was not a very big mare.

                              Jaguar Mail - and Alligator Fontaine, who I personally find slightly more appealing u/s - are both lovely with lots of blood. I do prefer JMs bloodlines, but, he reminds me a bit of the horse I have in my field, as opposed to the next generation.

                              Navarone has produced at least 1 ***/**** horse. They tend to be pretty jumpers, he himself has a wonderful hind-end, and should produce a horse capable to do dressage (I've seen him do UL dressage). Very workmanlike & mannerly; whenever I've seen him go I get the impression 'no' isn't in his vocabulary.

                                Edelweiss de Bonce is another one who seems under used in the USA. Crossed on a mare with some blood, I bet he will produce an UL event horse. He has the jump in his pedigree and seems to have and pass on a lovely mind.

                                  A spectacular horse is a horse who can work at 70% and still be better than the rest of the competitors**

                                  I never really planned on breeding--
                                  but after riding Harry Houdini for a year I went and bought a TB broodmare specifically for Tzigane *Pb* because I liked his offspring so much.
                                  Fab brains on those kids.

                                  My 2012 filly is no exception. She's brilliant.
                                  And when I do get to see her trot her movement renders me breathless.
                                  She reflects the above statement. She does not try to show off--she just is.

                                  In fact--I think the stats were: 3 foals received 9s on gaits this year via ATA inspection. 2 of the 3 were Taz babies.

                                  His eventing kids are doing very very well.
                                  Harry Houdini is one of them.
                                  Sara's dad has a (4?) year old (just approved as a stallion via ATA).
                                  Kyle Carter has one.
                                  Harry Houdini's full sister is scheduled to go directly to a BNT as soon as she is big enough to be started..
                                  Mateo is a lovely fellow who is (I believe) currently for sale. I also believe I read that he won his 1st 2 outs at Prelim...
                                  The oldest in our area has been with a junior show jumper the past few years. He's a awesome.

                                  Taz kids are cool, calm and kick ass.
                                  I like their attitude. They are top competitors but are really quiet about it. They aren't rude like a lot of cocky athletes. They quietly go in--dish out a can of whoop ass--and leave the arena just as quietly. Like it was no big deal--cause being awesome is easy.

                                  My best bud has one out of a TB/Shire mare. The resulting foal is really really nice even with the off breed of brood mare.

                                  I think I have some pics:
                                  oh here is Harry as a late 4 y/o (technically 5 tho) at his first show jumping schooling show! I did this right before moving him up to T level.
                                  Scope much??

                                  here is me riding the TB/Shire -- her 1st bank education (owner was prego at the time so I rode)

                                  She jumps with her knees higher than her nose...

                                  these horses also have a really easy riding gallop. Very self propelled--sit back and smoke a cigarette kind of run.

                                  I think the Tzigane has a lot going for him. He just doesn't have enough offspring out there with records just yet.
                                  Good amount of blood in his pedigree as well. And he mixes spectacularly with TB mares.
                                  Something about the Ramzes old blood recognizing new TB blood and really producing something brilliant.

                                  I really wanted a Roc USA baby too but with Taz producing such superior offspring it would be stupid to use another stallion for future babies.

                                    I bred this mare http://www.pedigreequery.com/catch+the+bouquet2 to Edelweiss and got a lovely filly who will be two in April. She is a very pretty filly that takes after her dam a good bit and is freaky dead quiet. She is going to be a big girl, easily 17 hands and impresses everyone who meets her with her sweet temperament and good manners.

                                      but after riding Harry Houdini for a year I went and bought a TB broodmare specifically for Tzigane *Pb* because I liked his offspring so much.
                                      Fab brains on those kids.

                                      My 2012 filly is no exception. She's brilliant.
                                      And when I do get to see her trot her movement renders me breathless.
                                      She does not try to show off--she just is.
                                      Thanks Kristen. So glad the Hou found you when he did. You made eventing a game for him and it still is. Because of a variety of starts & stops Sara wound up having to do a CIC* and CIC** in 3wks to squeeze in her qualifications for the World Championships for Young Event Horses (7yo's) @ Mondial du Lion. She was very worried she was asking too much but said he got better & better as he went around Bad Harzburg (**) and at the end was so confident and proud of himself!

                                      You're right about him having only a few competing so far but those out there - coming out this year - are doing very well.

                                      Herzmond (2004) - won 1.25M Jumpers and 6yo Young Jumper Championships @ Lamplight & Ledges in the Chicago area (A and AA-rated). Leased to a JR since 2011 he's heading to FL and the A circuit this month.

                                      Harry Houdini (2005) - a CIC** international competitor; goal is the CCI** @ Rebecca Farm in July and likely an Advanced to end the year. Full brother to Herzmond.

                                      Zigana (2005) - the flying shire! Out of a TB/Shire dam agree w/Kristen on the knees o/f - maybe the best jumping form I've seen outside of pony classes. Owner's ultimate goal was Training (dam did GAG and BN) which they did @ a Schooling show in Nov. and are gonna go for it @ a rated HT in 2013.

                                      Sayyida (2006) Kyle Carter co-owns with Tenant Sporthorses. Xena moved up to Prelim in December '12 w/a super D score and clear xc in one of the fastest times of the day. Expect her to do her first CIC* this spring.

                                      Mateo (2006) - won his first 2 Prelim outings last fall on his Dressage score (27.4 in the last one). Owner showed him thru Training but he's going much further so is for regretfully for sale. Julie Wolfert rode him to both wins @ Prelim and expect she'll try him @ FEI before he sells.

                                      Memeltanz (2006) - pinning in(AA) Baby Green Hunters

                                      MoJo (2007) - 1/2 TB. Did Richland Park YEH-4 in 20111 w/an outstanding score - esp in gallop & jumping. Now at Mittleider Eventing; expect him to debut w/Sara @ Galway in March.

                                      Semper Fidelis (2009) - an approved breeding stallion co-owned by Gary Mittleider (Sara's father) he'll do YEH-4 and Novice/Training in 2013.

                                      Dora (2009) - with Barb Crabo and expect her to also do YEH-4 classes on the West Coast this year. Barb has high expectations for this filly.

                                      So that's 9 of his first 13 (lost track of 2 part-Arabian fillies and there's another Hunter allegedly but with name changes & sales cannot confirm; the 4th shipped overseas as a weanling and is owned by a family who've never shown him). Not a huge number in total but 70% of those have documented show records so it's fair to say he's proven to sire sport horses and definitely imparts jumping ability. Those old enough to compete @ Preliminary level and FEI levels in eventing are showing the gallop to make time. Time will tell if the trend continues.

                                        In my uneducated opionion American's would be making a big mistake not preserving the Babamist bloodline. My favorite horse of all time was out of a Babamist mare. A little opionionated and had a bit of a spook but was born to take you xc. May give the flowers beside the ring the hairy eyeball, but never spooked at a jump. Took him out N his first event (and I'm incompetant) as 4 year old and he loped around like he had been doing it for a million years. I want a horse I can trust to jump me out of trouble if I screw up, and that was him.

                                        Maybe putting Replica to a wb cross mare to add the movement needed to get the dressage scores you need these days?
