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.

  • Stallion suggestions for AHS reg Michelangelo/Calypso II mare?

    My mare is due early Feb '13 for a Bellisimo M foal. This will be her first foal

    Depending on the baby, I will repeat the cross or look for another stallion. Frozen is fine

    Looking for proven international GP producers. Mare needs more elasticity/rounder movement, higher/longer neckset. Throwing smaller would be nice.

    Would like to keep mare's sensitivity, uphill build and movement and quick hindleg

    I'm breeding for myself so a bit spicy is fine too.

    Thoughts so far:
    repeat Bellisimo M
    Bretton Woods
    Fuerst Piccolo
    Ampere(?)
    Olivi

      You state you want "proven international GP producers", but how many on your list meet that requirement?

        Both Bellisimo and Olivi have offspring competing internationally.

        I am asking for ideas... Most of the stallions who's offspring I like because they bring the improvement I want don't (yet- hopefully) have babies competing at that level.

        I was hoping for thoughts/suggestions from the very good breeder who post here.

          Bretton Woods is too young to have offspring under saddle, much less international GP offspring, and he is close to 18 hands, so I doubt he will produce smaller. Bellsimo M is not too big, but I am not sure that he will help the neck set (I love my Bellsimo filly, but she has the same short neck as her dam). He does have offspring competing very successfully in the small tour as well as being an intermational GP horse himself. He is not known to improve the hind leg. He does throw an excellent temperament.

          What about one of the Wolkentanz brothers? The offspring I know have had very good hind legs and beautiful long, uphill necks. W II has certainly produced international GP horses (for example Wakana), not sure about W I.

            Since you don't mind spicy, how about Jazz? Or Negro? Or even Ferro?

            What about other stallions on the WBFSH top sire stats? http://www.wbfsh.org/files/Dressage_...re-progeny.pdf

            Also - since I don't have access to my other computer, can you refresh my memory on which Olivi offspring other than Triviant are at international GP level? I also can't think of any Belissimo M offspring at the moment that are competing at international GP level.

              Ouh, I like thos lines. Michelangelo and Calypso II...
              I do not post becasue I think I am one of the good breeders you would like to comment.
              Wolkentanz I certainly brings on elasticity and swing with a good active hindleg. Neckset should also be good. He compared to his brother can throw a bit smaller (I bred two fullbrothers one something like 1,65m or such and the other one over 1,70m). They are very rideable. With Calypso I would also pay attention of good hindleg conformation. He can forward his not so great hindleg through the generations. There is at least one GP horse Wito Corleone. One has to take into account that he was not stationed in an area throughout his life were he found great mares.
              Wokenstein II might also fit the bill. He may not throw as nice and springy as Wolkentanz, who is outstaqnding in my eyes for that, he certainly produces very nice horses.
              Don Frederico may also come to my mind, but am not too sure about correctness of legs and of neckset for a mare where you are asking for neckset and I think of Calypso hindleg.
              Does Da Caprio exist ? I really liked him and his offspring regarding conformation, but can not comment on elasticity. I remember the conformation but not the gaits. And since he left Germany, I did not really look into him. I would not go dutch, but that is taste. I for myself do not see elasticity can come from the dutch lines.

                  Alexandra- good thoughts.. And yes I was hoping you would comment

                  A note about my list- I am aware they haven't all produced what I'm looking for. But I have liked the young horses/foals I have seen from them
                  I guess, what I'm trying to say is I don't want "foal producers" or "young horse producers" I want a reasonable chance of GP

                  I like Jazz and his offspring a lot. But not known for more elasticity and often have "funny" neck sets. Same with Gribaldi.
                  Hohenstein, I like but as I understand, throws heavy. I love Traks in general.

                  I've given some thought to Florestan, but the tendency to throw a slower hindleg is what I've heard of. I really like the elasticity of the F lines. If Fidermark was alive/available, that'd be my ideal.. Sadly not an option
