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.

    According to USEF he showed at WEF 3/2011 in a PreGreen Hunter Division with 10 entries. 5 classes , 3 DNP's. 2 8ths.

        No one's being negative - just stating opinion on a public board of a publicly advertised standing stallion. (I though that was what it is for!)

          Its sad that the breeding industry is becoming more buyer beware than it needs to be.
          I posted this thread because I had just had the opportunity to meet Balt'Amour in person a couple of weeks ago. I was impressed with how quickly he was able to go right back into work. When I saw the update on FB, I was excited to see he had already made it back into the ring(at WEF) no less. Nothing more, nothing less.
          This was his first show back after a period of time of not only not showing but riding in general. I am sure they have kinks to work out, as most do during the first weeks back in the show ring. I like the fact that he was able to go there with no prep. I look forward to watching him develop with his new rider this year and wish the only best for them.

            First of all, we sincerely wish all the stallion owners best wishes with their stallions in competition. It is our number one goal here at the NA Stallion Testing that all the stallions that go through the test are able to go on to successful competition after the test, and any stallion owner who has sent a stallion through the testing knows the great lengths we go to with the goal in mind.

            However, since it has been brought up on a couple different occasions now, and publicly published on the stallion's webpage, I feel that it is my responsibility for the integrity of the testing to set the record straight regarding the 2009 Stallion Test and Balt'Amour MF. The 2009 Stallion Test was one of the tests that was broadcast live online. So everyone is aware of the fact that this stallion had stood up and flipped over on one of his passes through the chute. It was claimed that his fractured shoulder that he sustained, and was found on x-ray when he returned home, was due to this fall. I am not disputing that there was a fracture found on x-ray after his return to Marabet Farm. However, after his judging in the free-jumping chute, he participated in the cross country portion of the judging day. In order to participate and be scored in this portion, the stallions are thoroughly examined BEFORE and AFTER they go out on the cross country course. The stallions heart rate, breathing, soundness, tendons, etc. are thoroughly examined and noted on our veterinary exam forms. At NO time did Balt'Amour show any signs of lameness or injury BEFORE or AFTER the cross country portion, which made him eligible to receive his scores for cross country. In addition, on the final day of testing, we always have a test veterinarian present in case of emergency, and Balt'Amour was looked at immediately after his free jumping judging, and nothing was found that would cause concern. It goes to reason that if he sustained a fracture in this incident that the rigors of the cross country gallop and obstacles would have exacerbated it to the point where it would have been found by our thorough veterinarians and test staff. Of course, horses will be horses, and there will not always be a high success rate of stallions that finish the testing (as is the case with horses in any kind of training) and unfortunately there can be injuries and illness. But, to maintain the integrity of the testing, when statements are made that need to be clarified, I feel the responsibility to present the facts. Once the stallions have completed the judging phases of the test and results are announced, the stallions are released to the stallion owner's care and responsibility. (It might be good to note that he was presented in hand for additional approval on the licensing day following the conclusion of the stallion test.)

            It is crucial for us to constantly critique the testing format and training in order to provide the best quality and safest experience for every stallion. That is why we always take extremely detailed thorough records and review them every year to constantly monitor and improve the testing experience.

            We are very happy to see Balt'Amour in the show ring, as we are of all the stallion test graduates that go on to compete and wish him success in the future!

              At no time did anyone say this was his first show in his entire life. It was actually his second. The first time he went to a show it was with one of the test riders from the 70 Day stallion test, one year after the test, whom I had asked to ride him for those two months that I already mentioned. We took him to the show once but Wanja is a Dressage/ Jumper rider from Germany and didn't know how to do the Hunters, couldn't find a Hunter distance, and frankly it was a waste of money. So when I said it was his first show I think it was pretty clear we were talking about this season, after two years of not being ridden at all and with his new rider. No big cover up here. The facts are very clear.

                Actually Summer it was not the hairline fracture in his shoulder that caused him to need a year off as that healed quite nicely fairly quickly. It was the bruised suspensory he sustained on the third day of the test that you diligently polticed and wrapped every night so he could get through the test. As the final testing days were 9 degrees and the ground was extremely hard it did not help the condition of his leg. When he walked out of the stall the day after the testing to load up and ship home he was quite sore. It was my choice to let him continue the test after he was slightly hurt, and it was my choice to let him have a year off. At no time did I blame the test, which I think was run as well as a first year test could have been run. Obviously I believe in the test as I sent my stallion Bliss MF to the test this year. Sometimes stallions get hurt at the testings both here and in Germany. Many horses get hurt showing, trail riding or getting cast in their stalls. Horses get hurt. I really think you are over-reacting to a simple statement. I also think that you just violated your own rule of privacy regarding the individual stallions. I did not give out any of the details you just divulged, nor did I give you permission to do so.

                  At no time did anyone embellish his show record. Where are you getting this? The facts were always clear and honest. I personally am very happy with my stallion. Period.

                  Someone else's stallion??? Bliss MF is MY stallion also. The conversation had turned to Bliss MF for a moment and I honestly thought that's who she was talking about. And since she is from Canada and I had no idea she was here in FL I thought she might be talking about Bon Balou, who by the way is a fantastic stallion, but definitely more a jumper type. I'm so sorry I made a mistake.

                  Buyer beware? You and anyone else have an open invitation to visit my farm and see all my horses anytime. I have recently had many visiters to see Balt'Amour and every single on has bought a breeding to him after meeting him. Why don't you come visit instead of talking about a stallion this way that you know nothing about. We'd just love to meet you!

                    Maggie, I have not said anything publicly about this for over 3 years, even though you have made public statements accusing us of injuring your stallion and preventing him from showing. You have made public statements before that his break in showing was due to his fractured shoulder and claimed it was done at the stallion test. I did not disclose private information. I am merely responding to statements you have made. But now this is getting out of hand...bruised suspensory? Really? Grasping at straws. He did come in with something that you requested us to diligently attend to by wrapping. But, because we DO respect the confidentiality of the stallion test, I will not disclose what that was. Just like we do not publicly disclose the everyday behavior of the stallions, or their temperament, or their behavior undersaddle, etc. I have my records. Perhaps you should check yours. Perhaps you should review the regulations for the Stallion Test as well. It is up to the Stallion Test team (including the veterinarians) to decipher if a stallion may or may not continue the test. Of course, we will consult with the owners as to options for the stallion. But we would NEVER send a stallion with a compromised suspensory out for the cross country. EVER.

                    I have no personal issue with you Maggie. I don't believe in starting a feud on a public forum, which is why I rarely post. But what we have seen in the 6 years of hosting the test is the importance of facts. Whether they may be for your detriment or benefit. And no one knows more than us (well maybe GFF at the moment) the power of public opinion. We have worked very hard to preserve stallion owners' confidence in the test, and when something comes along that may alter that, it is important to me to respond. Like I said before, I wish you no ill will, and we are happy to see him out showing. Best wishes for the future. There's no fight here to be had.

                      That's great that you are here! We should try to meet up.

                      Honestly it is very hurtful to have people react this way to a really nice post by Allie. She saw Balt'Amour, liked him, was impressed by him and was kind enough to say so and to be happy that he made it to the show ring and did so well. None of us cared about what ribbon he got or didn't get. All we cared about was him going into a strange ring and jumping around, which he did. When you put all your time, effort, money, hopes and dreams into raising the best possible horses you can it is so nice to have someone recognize an accomplishment, even if it was a small one. That's all. Just wish everyone could get that. I'm sorry if I am too sensitive, but this is NOT just a business to me.

                        Summer my stallion did not come in with an injury or he would not have passed the first vet exam. This was your choice to go public. My stallion getting hurt was old news. Why are you suddenly making an issue of it? I called you before posting but you chose not to answer.

                        I will not lower myself to discuss this any further.

                          I'm sorry but when you put your stallion out there publicly and expect people pay you money to breed to him, you have to expect some public scrutiny. You have ads and a Facebook page all devoted to the marketing of this hunter stallion. I think when this happens people DO see it as a business and as a "public entity" whose value (as a hunter breeding stallion) can be discussed.

                          I would certainly not like it of people critiqued my horses publicly every time they showed! Certainly there are probably more bad days than good! So, I'm sorry for doing so. He was very well behaved and it is really great that he is getting out there!

You have ads and a Facebook page all devoted to the marketing of this hunter stallion. I think that it's important that people get out there and see the stallions that they are breeding to. Obviously this is not possible for everyone all of the time so I voiced my opinion on what I saw on Thursday. No harm done.
                            Goodness I didn't take any offense to your opinion! I think Balt'Amour is a Hunter stallion because of his very quiet mind and way of going. If you think he is more of a jumper type I have no problem at all with that. Never said I did! Was just confused by your statement because of the mention of Bliss MF. To date Balt'Amour has produced some really good jumping offspring that may end up in the jumper ring. He has also produced a Dressage prospect. His offspring are all still very young so time will tell!

                            Just noticed you said you saw him on Thursday. That explains it. Jenn was experimenting a bit in the ring as I mentioned before. She didn't ride him in her usual way.

                                  Well - as I have been inadvertently / intentionally entangled in this by our newest COTH troll who should really stick to not writing bad cheques and attempting to purchase horses by using someone else's credit card ... I guess I need to clarify a few things ...

                                  Since I owned a Bliss offspring, I was excited to hear how he had done at the test. When I called Maggie, she was very excited and said Bliss was fabulous and he jumped the oxer at the highest hole on the standard. I calculated 6' standard = 5.57736 feet and thats what I posted. MY mistake. It actually ended up being the 2nd highest hole in the standard (which you couldnt see with the pole being there) - or 1.6 metre instead. As soon as I found out that fact - I corrected my post.

                                  REGARDLESS ... for Bliss and Bon Balou to have jumped this height as well as they did speaks volumes for the prep they both received and the talent and ability of both stallions and Im sure a lot of people will be watching both of them in the ring in the years to come to see what they are both capable of doing in their careers ...

                                  Stallions, mares, geldings and horses in general get hurt doing the damndest things and in most cases we dont have a clue how, when or why they did it. I, for one, am really glad that Balt 'Amour has made it back into the ring whether this is his first, second or tenth show and I hope that Maggie has the ability to get him back out there several more times

                                  Standing a stallion and promoting their offspring is always a real juggling act that Im sure most, if not all of us have had to deal with over the years. Unless you are one of the wealthy ones, you have XX number of dollars and you have to figure out how to best allocate it that year and in future years, in order for you to realize the best ROI. And that doesnt mean your stallion is lame or crazy or untalented if he doesnt show that year or only showed a few classes - it simply means you had to channel your available funds in another direction for that year in the best interests of your business...

                                  Its a shame when a simple post like "I saw stallion XXX at this show and really liked what I saw" ends up turning into a mess ...

                                  All the best with all of your stallions Maggie and for anyone else with stallions showing at WEF that are using this venue to showcase how nice their boys are out there in the "real world"

If you think he is more of a jumper type I have no problem at all with that. Never said I did! Was just confused by your statement because of the mention of Bliss MF. To date Balt'Amour has produced some really good jumping offspring that may end up in the jumper ring. He has also produced a Dressage prospect. His offspring are all still very young so time will tell!

                                    Just noticed you said you saw him on Thursday. That explains it. Jenn was experimenting a bit in the ring as I mentioned before. She didn't ride him in her usual way.
                                    Okay good! I didn't mean to offend Also I just watched the video from Wednesday - you're right, much better! Clearly I just caught a training day and was too quick to judge (lord knows we all have millions of those!) I didn't see the previous mention about the bit

                                      I read this post because I am considering breeding my mare to Balt'Amour. I've only bred my mare one other time, to Guaranteed Gold, and it was a fabulous experience. I was looking for a black sabino stallion this time, and Balt'Amour seems like a lovely fit for my little mare. I've watched his videos, and Alli's original post was super helpful, because I'm an amateur, and I need to know that I don't have to ride a horse every day to get a good ride.

                                      What amazed me as I read through the post was the unproductive negativity that some people obviously harbor towards this horse and/or owner.

                                      You don't like this horse? No prob. Plenty of fish in the sea. But I'm not sure I appreciate comments like "Buyer beware." I'm perfectly capable of looking at all the evidence, and deciding if this horse will help me meet the goals I'm trying to meet with a new baby. And when I say "evidence," I mean real evidence like videos and the opinions of the professionals judging the stallion test. I'm not sure there is any need for such drama...

                                        There is also a lovely black sabino stallion: Farscape DSF: http://www.dreamscapefarm.com/HorseDetail.aspx?ID=90 Here is a photo:

                                        Black horses do not always throw black, many throw Chestnut.

                                        Sabino generally has a lower lip that is white, called a "milk lip" and white socks that go above the knee and or hock. Look at Popeye K, he is an excellent example of Sabino.

                                        Always ask if "sabino" has been genetically proven.

                                          Hi Tracy! Glad you found your way over here ...

                                          I loved the cross with Star and Guaranteed Gold. Here are some pictures of that offspring ...

                                          and I think a cross with Balt'Amour would be amazing

                                          I like him a lot and if I do decide to stay in the breeding game into the future and have the right mare, I wouldn't hesitate to breed to him. He definitely checks literally *ALL* the boxes for me. The only thing that would make him a 10/10 for me would be a nice blaze face and 4 stockings to the knees and hocks ...
