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.

  • Jumper stallion suggestions - particularly with L-line blood?

    I don't know for sure yet if I'll be breeding this mare next year, but wanted to start thinking about stallions to be prepared. Mare is papered Hanoverian and approved for breeding with the AHHA here - she was imported as a sporthorse years ago and competed up to Grand Prix, spending most of her time in the Jr/AO jumpers with a young rider. Her breeding is Continue/Weinberg/Pilot - http://www.horsetelex.com//horses/pedigree/1543738.

    I have her in foal to Albarez right now and will consider breeding back to him again once I see the foal. However, I also want to explore other options and am particularly interested in jumper stallions with Holsteiner L-line blood. This mare's dam has produced 4 other offspring that I can find. Three of those were by Lord Z (Lord/Calando), and include Hanoverian Verband approved stallion Laith and another stallion sold in the Verband auction. This mare's other half-brother is by Landclassic (by Landadel) and is WBFSH-ranked jumping 1.6m.

    She's a big-framed, older-style mare so a little refinement would be nice and I definitely don't need to add any size! Jumping talent is certainly #1 priority, but a good brain is also a plus. Although she's a heavier older-style mare she definitely has a lot of "go." I would prefer to use fresh semen but might consider good quality frozen.

      LINARO! Now you have to use frozen since he is deceased, but his frozen is great. I bred to him three times. One colt is showing successfully in FL at 1.15m. Another colt is showing 1.2m-1.3m and is standing at stud in S. Korea. If I am not mistaken, Linaro was accepted for breeding by the Hanoverian verband too, so you could go either way.

        The last stallion I would ever breed to for jumping would be Linaro. He is not an inheritor. He is very good at making breeding mares and dressage horses though. we also see him in the motherline of some top jumpers but not directly by him.

          I think these are the L stallions- Larimar, Lasino, Limbus - on the 2013 list offered by Foxfire Farm (Karen Reid) . Happy Hunting!

              I agree. I bred Linaro to a very good Hanoverian JBP mare before he was imported to the US. The resulting colt was tall, dark and handsome and a pretty mover. We sold him as a 5yo for decent money. He did the A/A hunters with his new owner for a while, but I've lost track of him. While I might use Linaro again to produce a mid-level hunter, I would not, as Bayhawk noted, expect him to produce a top-level jumper.

                Thanks for the replies. I know there are a few good frozen options, but was really hoping to find a stallion available fresh. This mare has never been bred with frozen semen and she'll be 18 next year so I'm hesitant to rock the boat from what's worked so far.

                Any thoughts on Lamarque at Wild Turkey Farm? I've done a search here and found a few threads but would be curious for any updates.

                On a side note, where did all the L-line blood go?? When I started looking around for a fresh stallion I was shocked by how few choices I'm finding!

                  You can thank Cassini , Caretino , Contender and Corrado for that. They were such consistent inheritors that the breeders quit using L because the market made them rich with the aforementioned stallions.

                  It is very importtant to think generationally and have L in the motherline.

                    Lagoheidor? He's by Landadel, but I don't know if that makes him an L line stallion? (although maybe he's too substantial?)

                      Landkoenig (Hanoverian, by Landadel) is here in the US and is a lovely, top producing stallion. But he will add height, along with great temperament.

                          This is one of my Linaro geldings. He is out of an FEI dressage mare. He is winning every weekend in 1.15 and will move up after WEF.

                            My German shepherd can win every weekend at 1.15 meter.

                            Please let us know in the future if you have the extremely rare Linaro that can actually jump at the higher levels.

                              Nice stallion. Nice type and mover. Good for this country. Not meant to make top jumpers with......otherwise he should do very well here producing horses for our predominant amateur market.

                                  Is HH Linton standing with Fresh or Frozen only? Really nice looking stallion, Successful in the upper levels, good damline. Seems to be a reasonable fee too.

                                    A friend of mine has 2 or 3 Limoncello (at Fox Fire Farm) offspring out of a Rampal mare that are super. Very modern, tall with long legs and big frames. Very good movers with lots of jump. The 4 yr old seems to have unlimited scope. And his 50-something amateur owner rides him.

                                    I bred to Linaro twice, two quite different mares, and the offspring - both fillies - looked exactly like the mothers. So he did not add anything to the mix in this first generation.

                                      I bred to Lavita a number of years ago. I am not sure if he is still standing.
                                      I also bred to Landslide a number of times, and loved the offspring I had but I think he may no longer be with us.
                                      Landslide was inbred to Ladykiller xx which was one of the things I liked about him.

                                        I grew up riding Holsteiners in Europe. Being a very tall guy, they would always put me on the larger stallions, who were almost always direct Landgraf offspring... rode probably a dozen of them, even a couple of older Ladykiller sons. I am very fond of them because of their incredible, steady and smart minds, their movement and their incredibly powerful way of jumping. They all had good technique, with tremendous scope.

                                        Also, they were all slower maturing horses and not as super quick as a lot of jumpers that are preferred today. I believe the reason why they fell out of favor for a good 10-15 year period, was using performance in the young horse classes as a main selection criterion, where there is no time for a horse to mature, they are often pushed to the top way too soon.

                                        Breeders in Europe, however, found out that a lot of times by pursuing the early results and the quickness, they also bred the power, scope and often the steady mind out of their horses and in recent years there is a resurgence of L-line blood.

                                        In the past two decades, breeding my own and training/handling/riding/showing hundreds of Holsteiners or horses with Holsteiner blood, I found that while using a lot of older-type "L" blood on old-fashioned mares may not result in the desired product, however, Landgraf stallions produced a large number of absolutely amazing offspring in the US, where the mares are mostly TBs or TB based.

                                        Some may argue against this point, that there have not been internationally successful "L"-line horses produced in the U.S.. I believe this is not necessarily due to `the lack of quality, the lack of "horsepower" (because I worked with a lot of these horses). It is mainly due to the lack of professional, high level training system.

                                        My belief in the above is the reason, as you all know, why I own such an "L"-line stallion, Lotus T. I believe, based on experience that he produces higher quality and with more consistency than most other stallions who I bred to and whose offspring I trained. That's why I would recommend the O.P. to look into breeding to Lotus T. Now, he is very tall and does produce size.... but if the offspring is too tall for most riders' taste, I might just have to look into buying him/her for myself, hahaha.
