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.

    Aslan PF - #64 Leading Sire per USEF

    Could be that I have one of his babies. His owner is wonderful to work with, IMO. His breeding is Sidi-Brahim and Fame lines. Similar in structure to Shah Azim. Brooke Carlson - 408-779-1080

      It was outside Orlando FL but I didn't meet the owner just the rider, who mentioned the sire. And agree on how a great walk and canter are so much more important, although of course I love a great trot as well.


      • #83
        I haven't read this entire thread, so apologies if someone already mentioned this. When I was considering breeding my TB mare to an Arabian, I found lots of nice nice stallions at texasarabianbreeders.com. Race-bred, but definitely athletic and looked like they could sire some nice sport horses too.


        • Original Poster

          Thanks again to everyone for all the suggestions. I have contacted some of the stallion owners who don't have websites to obtain more information. Hopefully I can come to a decision shortly, although I have a lot of bloodlines floating around in my head.

          Another question...I do have an Anglo Mare, sire is a TB and dam is:

          I already have the breeding to an Arabian set up for this spring for this mare. It was a breeding I had purchased a few years back. However, next year, if I am shooting for a competitive sporthorse would you breed to a TB or an Arabian?

          Also, just to make sure I understand this correctly, the resulting foal could only be bred to another Anglo to keep it within registry rules??

            I would definitely look at Persiflage, British anglo via frozen if he suited your mare. I believe you can breed the Anglo back thoroughbred again and still be eligible for the AHA registry as an Anglo. But you could not do thoroughbred again in the next generation.


            • #86
              The link to your Anglo mares pedigree is quite nice! Can not go wrong with a Polish/CMK! You are fortunate that you can in fact go either way using the Arabian or the TB stallion. Providing you do your homework in regards to the ancestorial athletic traits/success, and it appears that you will, I am sure you will chose wisely and be happy with that choice.

                Double-check with AHA, but I think the rule for Anglos is 25% - 75% Arab blood.


                • #88
                  Yes, that's the correct rule ^^
                  Straight from the AHA rule book

                  1. The horse is a cross between: a purebred Arabian registered with either the Arabian Horse Association or the Canadian Arabian Horse Registry; a purebred Thoroughbred registered with The Jockey Club or approved foreign source registry recognized by the Jockey Club; or an Anglo-Arabian registered with the Anglo-Arabian Horse Registry or an Anglo-Arabian registered with a verifiable foreign Anglo-Arabian registry where the foreign Anglo meets the requirements of the AHA Anglo-Arabian (103.2 and 103.3).

                  2. The horse has no less than 25% Arabian blood and no more than 75% Arabian blood. (If the horse has more than 75% Arabian blood, but would otherwise qualify for registration in the Anglo-Arabian Horse Registry, it is eligible for registration in the Half-Arabian Horse Registry.)

                  3. The horse results from one of the following breeding combinations;
                  - Thoroughbred stallion to purebred Arabian mare.
                  - Purebred Arabian stallion to Thoroughbred mare.
                  - Anglo-Arabian stallion to Anglo-Arabian mare.
                  - Purebred Arabian stallion to Anglo-Arabian mare.
                  - Anglo-Arabian stallion to purebred Arabian mare.
                  - Thoroughbred stallion to Anglo-Arabian mare.
                  - Anglo-Arabian stallion to Thoroughbred mare.

                  To me, the crosses that I have in bold are the most ideal. And to clarify, the Anglo to Anglo crosses are all F1 Anglos, not F2. (50%A,50%TB) x (50%A,50%TB)

                    I would breed the Anglo mare to an Anglo stallion or a Thoroughbred stallion.

                      Spanish Arabians

                      Over time I think Spanish Arabians have been know for jumping...it is part of Spains inspection process for breeding stallions. Stanley Ranch has consistently produced hunters and jumpers. http://www.stanleyranch.com/ If I were looking at Arabians to be bred for sport horse purposes I would look for ++ and // after the name. These Arabians are well proven in performance. They may not have been hunters or jumpers but they have proven their movement and trainability. If you do a search on "Arabian jumpers" there is a society listed for that interest. Sadly today you need to be very diligent looking for Arabians that are conformed to be performance horses as the current fashion in halter arabians has nothing to do with performance. They are breeding for a very adolecent looking arabian with a very round shallow body to make the legs appear very long...it is all about looking tall and elegant. They have straight shoulders, shallow bodies, very long necks that come out of the shoulder very high...more like saddlebreds...they will have straight long upright pasterns...their table top flat topline comes with a pelvis tilted with the topline. They have become a charicature of what an Arabian should be. It is better in the Arabian Sport Horse breeding but you still must be a careful shopper. There have been many good suggestions but still look at stallions who have DONE something. Gaits in Arabians are an issue. They can have a good walk but have a trot without elasticity and a spronging canter, mostly because they have not been bred to have a soft elastic back with lateral flexibility. I get very excited to see video of a Arabian who free canters and trots like a sport horse using their back and neck. It is very hard to see video taken for someone who needs to see the quality of the gaits because someone is always chasing them with a bag on a stick to make them look snorty and completely wrong for your purposes. Be careful if you see a video that isn't a video that just shows pose after pose but no movement. For a hunter you do not want the posty stiff legged movement that seems so popular with halter arabs. Their noses higher than their polls and their backs upside down. The right Arab stallion is out there for you but be a good shopper. PatO

                              So a few questions.... Does anyone know whether Bonaparte N would be eligible? He is listed as an Anglo Arabian but he is 1/4 Shagya. He's only available frozen in the US but is also Hanoverian and Holsteiner approved.

                              Also does anyone know much about NV Congo? I've seen one of his sons (a full arabian) eventing at Preliminary. Not a big guy but he can jump. I've heard he produces horses that can jump but can't find much else about him other than that he is black. He's a 97 so shouldn't be to terribly old. I heard he was in GA at one point.

                                The rule says "an Anglo-Arabian registered with a verifiable foreign Anglo-Arabian registry where the foreign Anglo meets the requirements of the AHA Anglo-Arabian (103.2 and 103.3)"

                                So, I would say no, as Bonaparte would not meet the requirements.

                                  Nope, Bonaparte N doesn't meet the requirements, because I looked up and asked the AHA about it since I was hoping to breed an Anglo foal by him. Really a shame =/

                                    What a disservice to the breed. The French have perfected the Anglo. Why in the world would the AHA reinvent the wheel?

                                      Because Shagyas are not Arabians. They are a completely different breed despite the name.

                                        Because the AHA management and most of the membership does not understand the Anglo-Arabian breed. AHA's Anglo studbook does not even record the TB ancestry of the AAs that it registers --which is a problem for those wanting to present their AAs to WB registries. To AHA, the AA is just a special case of the "half-Arab".
