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.

  • Help me think - NA dressage stallions with great hind ends and canters

    Friend is looking for a stallion with a very good hind end (as in, powerful, and with good ability to sit and carry), and a great canter. Goal is a dressage foal with good gaits and rideability for a dedicated amateur, and not too big (16.3 or smaller).

    Stallion must be available via fresh semen (no MWF collection schedules), and either have a good show record (preferably at 4th Level or above), or if a young stallion, very good results at a 70 day performance test. Color is not important, but he must be approved by AHS, OHBS/GOV, or KWPN.

    Your thoughts?

  • #2
    Boleem. A finer hind end (and hip/back/loin connection) with natural carrying ability is harder to find.

    I know people are looking for the newer stallions, but he was not old fashioned. At all. TB blood close in the Ladykiller xx and Lucky Boy xx, the great foundation TB's used for wb breeding back in the day.

    Not promoting at all as I stopped actively marketing widely a few years back because of age parent that took priority over stallion marketing.

    He's no longer alive but excellent frozen semen is still available. In fact, have a lovely weanling being boarded with me right now... awewome to see those traits being carried on. Can see it in her already.

    I just couldn't resist replying. He was on the USET Training List after all and had a tremedous FEI perfomance record with the Poulins.

    Video is on youtube and can be linked below.

      Weird, I thought I had replied to this earlier this morning, but apparently it didn't go through.

      Susan, thanks for the suggestion. However, the MO does not want to use frozen semen (14 y/o maiden mare).

      Does anyone else have suggestions?

        I love Freestyle's canter. He is also short backed with a great hip, and proven, with outstanding semen and SO. He is tall, but when I bred a mare to him the resulting colt didn't mature over 16 hh. Approved AHS and GOV, among others.

          How about Diamond Stud? With Diamond Hit, Don Schufro on the sire side and I believe Holsteiner on the Dam side he may fit the bill.

            Wolkentanz II and Schwarzenegger both competed to that l;evel, and have good canters and conformation.

              would have to see the mare, but Don Principe has thrown great canters consistantly.

                Thanks for the suggestions. Anyone else have ideas?

                The mare is by a Donnerhall son, and the owner isn't keen on close linebreeding. She is considering Qredit, though. Donnerhall is three generations back in his pedigree. Same for Diamond Stud, so we will take another look at him, but I do not believe he will meet the owner's performance criteria.

                We need a list of CDI dressage stallions standing in NA - maybe I will start a separate thread.

                  I will second Wolkentanz II. He is one of the best stallions we have standing in NA and the W-line is certainly known for their hind ends.

                  Rousseau is another stallion that has proven he can produce via his stallion sons.

                  Baroncelli is a stallion that S. Hassler is competing at FEI level fairly successfully. And Pik L is being competed GP this year as well.

                  Lagoheidor is a very interesting stallion and is essentially a jumper bred stallion. They tend to have great hind ends and jump in their canter.

                  Not sure what are the pluses and minuses of the mare are conformationally so not sure of what other criteria that stallion must have.

                    Doubling and tripling up on Donnerhall is resulting in super nice offspring.
                    Furstenball is a prime example.

                    And if you want the performance credentials, then the list of CDI stallions and fresh is very restricted.

                    So for example if you did use a direct son of Donnerhall, the resulting offspring would have Donnerhall as a grandfather and great grandfather--actually the but in reverse of Furstenball.

                      I visited Marydell farm once and found the youngsters very impressive. 3 good gaits, and the best canters I'd seen in any young group. Now Don Principe's youngsters are consistently proving themselves in competition, and he himself has been successful to Grand Prix.

                        What about Royal Prince?

                        Might want to call Hilltop (and other large stallion stations). They are quite helpful and really know the stallions and the offspring.

                          Don Principe does seem to throw good canters and he himself is built really well behind. There is one in the area by him that is really talented and I know his trainer thinks very highly of his potential as an FEI horse. I also really liked his son Doktor Wendel. Great! canter (and really beautiful to boot!).

                          I also like Bon Balou, great engine and canter and just a lovely dual purpose stallion. I loved him as a two year old at his licensing and am glad he was imported.

                            Sir Gregory.. He has a very nice canter his record is getting better everyday and he has already put a good number of foals on the ground also he is 16.2 on the smaller side.
                            One day you'll wake up and there wont be any more time to do what you've always wanted to do. Do it NOW!

                              Farrington(Wellingon x Doruto) Keur puts on an awesome hind leg and canter and all the rest too. He has many proven offspring competing Grand Prix. Schroeder (Schroeder x Escudo I) has a super hind leg and his canter is tops. He is a very unique Sandro Hit son because of his dam side and Escudo I. He is starting PSG this year and just started with an FEI rider.

                                DY, I would also encourage your friend to look at FEI jumper stallions as well.

                                A good jumper often makes an excellent dressage mount. Boleem scored higher in jumping in his 100DT in Holland than the flatwork...yet he went tops at GP dressage.

                                She/you may want to look at that side to see which jumpers are also producing good dressage horses. Just thinking outside the box.

                                  I had a chance to see Wamberto in a clinic last fall and he was very impressive. I have no idea what kind of temperament he throws. I looked at A LOT of stallions when I was breeding a few years back and if I were to breed again I would definitely check him out.
                                  He's only been shown to third so far but his stallion performance score is excellent.

Since day 1 she's had a great temperament, she was a very good improvement upon the mare. Even as a yearling now she's got a LOVELY hind end/ loin connection. The owner of this one is lucky. She's a great filly.

                                        Cant beat the tempraments of the best R line stallions. Rubignon, fabulous mind, did it all and is gorgeous. Romanchero H. Same thing, also Regazzoni and Royal Prince. The operative word was AMATUER dressage... the good R line are not only talented dressage horses, they TRY to make you look good. I wish someone would import one of the 6 Rhodiamont Rudilere stallions, full brothers to Romanov.
