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.

    Actually, wrong :-) IF you could Sans Souci would be a great choice, but he stands live cover in Bavaria and won't help you much. He is the sire of the international GP horse Altenbach TSF and other high level jumpers.

    That said, I don't think that the addition of "International" will make a better jumper. The mare in question is not an international show jumper herself, and her talent lies probably not in international show jumping either. The point will be to mate two fitting, highly athletic horses. And that opens the door to far more stallions, especially of Burnus AAH/Habicht background.

    ;-)) And I beg to differ, substantial to me is something very different. These are Trakehners after all, and hardly large or big boned. I know probably 6-8 direct maternal relatives of Xena and her dam in the flesh. And while "substantial" for their own breed, they hardly classify as such by other warmblood standards. Stallions that have worked very well with this particular Schöner Tag/Schatztruhe background were King Arthur, Herzzauber and anything with Arogno. Tag's best performing offspring were by Hockey (hence Russian), Schwedengruß (a Kunzit son, 1/4 TB) and an Arogno son. So make your pick ;-)

        International means has FEI points which as stated means a horse could jump 1.45 m in an FEI class of which there are many in Europe and here you have to usually go to Wellington and the Hamptons- and have very deep pockets.Hailo has a horse that regularly earned money and jumped clear in the 1.5m GPs here but they were not fEI classes but if he competed in europe he would no doubt have gotten FEI points in his travels.


        • #24
          hence it is not a coincidence that Abdullah's get with FEI points were mainly located in europe as is horalas' child on the list and the others are also european based and could be jumping much lless in height than what some horses are jumping here.
          (And i noted coconut grove has not been breeding that long but he has been bred to some top mares so they will end up in the Sunday classes i would bet.)

            Oskar is Russian, descends from some jumping lines that Maren mentioned and was used as a jumper prior to import.

              Hermes d Authieux AA is the one (who I think I was confusing with Fidelio du Donjon 3/4 xx and not trak approved) he had a trakehner daughter score a 9 and seems to have "international" horses--now to just get some frozen in the US. :-)

              http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UgdyPjNFMIk (But even he seems solidly built.)

              "Hermés d’Authieux AA is a perfect example of the original breeding goal of the French Anglo-Arabian breed. His sire Ithuriel AA competed in international show jumping with Xavier Leredde/FRA and he is the sire of numerous successful offspring as well which ranks him as one of the top stallions in French performance breeding. Ithuriel’s sire, Night and Day xx, is the sire of Jus de Pomme/Ulrich Kirchhoff, the 1996 double gold winner at the Olympic Games in Atlanta/USA. Ithuriel AA’s dam’s sire, Kesbeth AA, produced Nithard AA, a sire well-known in Germany as the dam’s sire of Cappeln’s magnificent Inschallah AA. Matcho AA and Upan la Jarthe AA , both highly influential stallions in Hanoverian and Westphalian breeding, both go back to Nithard’s son, Pancho II AA. A Nithard daughter named Stella competed under Nelson Pessoa/BRA and is the dam of the influential show jumper stallions, Olisco and Quick Star.
              Hermés d’Authieux AA’s dam, Nahiade, is also the dam of the World Cup show jumper Boule de Neige Jac/Rodrigo Pessoa/BRA and Chipie de Cande who took the Horse of the Year title in the US. With Israel AA, Rantzau xx and the already mentioned Nithard AA, there are three further breeding heroes in a row in the dam line – which led to a valuable inbreeding component in Hermés d’Authieux AA’s pedigree.
              Hermés d’Authieux AA won the 2000 European Championships in St. Lô/FRA in the class for five-year old show jumpers under Fernand Leredde/FRA. Following this he collected first place ribbons under Xavier Leredde/FRA, Jérome Gachignard/FRA and Yannick Martin/FRA up to CSI*** level which earned him a very high index of 154 points. Further placings were added in Germany in 2007 in advanced level classes with Janne Friederike Meyer and the young Swedish rider, Märta Elander Wisten.
              Hermés d’Authieux AA’s offspring are also impressive: He was the sire of the best Anglo-Arabian filly and the best Anglo-Arabian colt in France in 2003. Two of his sons were licensed in France, Oiseau d’Ivraie AA and O’Pif d’Ivraie AA, and both of them competed in the Finals of the French Show Jumping Championships as five and six-year olds. Meanwhile they place in international competitions. Currently highly successful in upper level sport are the show jumpers Oria du Chanu, Niskao de Moens, Nilda Rouge and an event horse named Punch de l’Esques along with many others."

                On the FEI discussion. FEi really doesn't matter, total height does in that case. And I've seen plenty of "Grand Prix" in the US that would never be Grand Prix (Groesser Preis) in Germany, whey they don't start under 1.50m. Eastern European nomenclature can be different, but the local S classes in Germany start at 1.45m and go on up from there, so S, S*, ** or *** is a pretty good indication.

                  As breeder of the mare in question here's my 2 cents if I were picking a stallion for her. First I agree w/Maren - throw the "International" part of this equation out the window. Look for an athlete w/talent in the areas you want and with pedigree and body type to compliment Xena. If semen were available for Axis (International GP Dressage horse but with Sixtus as his sire and Anduc as dam sire there's plenty of jump in this pedigree), it would be game over for me.

                  While you can't argue with Abdullah's accomplishments, between him and Special Memories I'd go w/SM as it gives you the TB blood so important to refresh our breed - and Xena definitely needs some additional TB. Moreover, b/c this TB is Kluwall xx it's PROVEN to produce jumpers @ the National & International levels. Plus, as multiple sources say SM's have super temperament and Xena can be a bit hot, he'd be my #1 choice if Axis isn't available in the US.
