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.

  • Non-Warmblood mare showing PSG: Registry options for foal?

    I have a mare who just started showing PSG last year. She is by *Nico and out of an Arabian. We are thinking of embryo-transfer so that she can continue showing next year. Are there any WB registries that use a mare's performance record to get her approved so that the foal can be registered WB?

    I am starting to look at potential sires for her, but not sure what registry to consider. I thought the Old/ISR offered this, but I looked at the website and could not figure it out. We breed Westfalens and host an annual inspection. Unfortunately we cannot go that route because of the mare's bloodlines. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Have you thought about taking her back to a warmblood-approved Arab stallion? Foal could be registered half-arab....

      Old/NA will register the foal into its ISR Registry as long as the stallion is approved Old/NA. Mare must be presented for approval (based on conformation and walk/trot on triangle - I haven't seen them disapprove a mare yet). I think RPSI will also approve such a mare (again, based on actual triangle presentation), if stallion is RPSI approved - not as sure on RPSI, I have seen them approve QH, Appy, and Paint mares, for lower books. Foal will end up in book II?

      AWS will also approve - they will do it based on performance, no need for presentation of the mare, registration (and premiums) based on quality of the foal. Nico was AWS approved.

      If you want registration in a Friesian cross registry, check out Friesian Heritage Horse Registry - large, active registry with optional inspections, USDF recognition (All Breeds), and show awards program that covers all different disciplines.

      Also agree, you can go half-Arab if you breed back to a purebred Arab. So it really comes down to - what stallion are you looking at? Probably easiest options are Old/NA (ISR) and AWS.

      If you are willing to accept a COP, you can even look at Hanoverian - I'm pretty sure Nico's owners have done that with at least one of their offspring? And pretty sure KWPN will do the same thing?

        I believe ISR/ONA would only consider the mare for its lowest mare book (pre-mare book II), and give the foal ISR papers.

        OHBS/GOV might consider her for its lowest mare book (also pre-mare book II), but if she is bred to a stallion approved by OHBS/GOV, they would give the foal Oldenburg registration papers.

        You may also have options with AWR. I am not hugely familiar with that registry, but there are folks on here that can give you some insight.

          Thanks everyone! I have not started a list of potential sires yet because I need to figure out which registry to use. I definitely want to use a WB stallion, for a few different reasons. But especially because the owner of this mare is very tall and the mare is only 16h. So if you can find an Arabian thats about 17h, proven FEI Dressage, and moves like a WB, then I'd consider him! But until that happens, we are hoping to find a WB stallion to match nicely with the mare. Sounds like GOV or ISR/OLD might be the way to go. I was thinking that some of these registries would use a performance record.

            Why not register FSA (Friesian Sporthorse Association)? This is where Nico was approved and where Hidden Promise registers their horses.

              The foal could still be registered as a Friesian Sporthorse because it would be 25% Friesian.

              Is the mare pinto? Just curious, Nico was a favorite of mine (and pretty much every Friesian Sporthorse breeder who likes pinto)

                  Yes, she's chestnut & white! I had not considered a Friesian Sporthorse Association. I'll look into that. Thank you.

                      IF she meets the requirements for conformation and gaits, ISR will accept her into the PreMare Book. Where the performance record comes in is in the Star Award System (proof of quality). She would qualify for a Star Award under these rules:

                      a) Star for Performance of the Mare: performance: mare must have competed successfully and achieved a first, second or third place in two competitions recognized by USEF. These competitions must be:
                        • in dressage at 2nd level or higher with minimum scores of 60%
                        • in jumping at classes of level 3 (1.10m) or higher
                        • in eventing training level or higher
                        • successfull completion of a Mare Performance Test with 70% or better

                      The mare owner must provide USEF or USDF documentation of the results.

                      OR:


                      b) Star for Performance of Offspring: the requirements are:
                        • two offspring (mares) which are entered into the ISR-OLDENBURG N.A. Premium Mare Book or
                        • one offspring (stallion) which got the Certified Breeding License with ISR-OLDENBURG N.A. or
                        • two offspring (sporthorses) which competed successfully and achieved a first, second or third place in three competitions recognized by the USEF. These competitions must be:
                          • in dressage 2nd level or higher with minimum scores of 60%
                          • in jumping at classes of level 3 (1.10m) or higher
                          • in eventing training level or higher

                      The mare owner must provide USEF or USDF documentation of the results.


                      Mares can earn 3 stars. The first for scoring 105 or better as a Premium Mare at the inspection, the 2nd for Quality of Foals - must produce 3 Premium Foals, and the third as above for performance

                        Thank you Tiki! So then, if I have her approved ISR, and breed her to an ISR/Old approved stallion, the foal could be registered Old?

                          The foal would get ISR papers.

                            We are all assuming there is documentation showing this mare's pedigree which is acceptable to the various registries, as if you don't have that it changes things.

                            I think AWS is an option, too, isn't it, given Nico was approved there? I know nothing about its requirements, but it's a suggestion to look into.

                            As a plus, if a mare the foal could be approved for the Old books at inspection. Because the mare is 75% acceptable bloodlines (Arabian 50% and KWPN 25%) she would be eligible for the ISR Mare Book. Her offspring, if by ISR/Old approved stallions would then be eligible for ISR papers as DTO mentioned, but due to having greater than 75% approved bloodlines would be eligible at mare inspection to be placed in an Old book. http://www.isroldenburg.org/?pid=foals_eligibility

                              If you wanted to go the FSA route (Friesian Sporthorse Association), your mare is probably already eligible for Elite Book status based on dressage performance.

                              Nico was Approved for Breeding with the FSA, and one of his offspring was the High Performance National Champion in 2009, and another Nico offspring was a USDF/FSA All-Breeds Champion for 2012.

                              I've snipped the relevant portion from the Registration Guidelines here:

                              Silver Elite: Performance Requirements for Silver Elite registration (one of the following):
                              - Dressage: USDF recognized Open classes, minimum score of 62% at Third Level, or a minimum score of 60% or higher at Fourth Level.
                              http://www.friesiansporthorseassocia...uidelines.html

                              For the foal to be eligible for FSA registration you would have to breed to a Friesian or Friesian Sporthorse, because the registry requires a minimum 25% Friesian blood. (Just an FYI as you consider your options.)

                              Here is a nice (and informative) article about Friesian Sporthorses from 2012, which includes a photo and mention of Nico:

                              And here is an article about Nico and the Christmas Eve barn fire. It is sad, but also neat to learn the 'story of Nico', how Sherry found and chose him, etc.:
