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.

  • Qredit and Quarterhall

    I adore Quaterback but his frozen is difficult to get in nz, and the stuff that did get into the country produced very few pregnancies.

    So I was wondering about his stallion sons, particularly Qredit and Quaterhall.

    Does anyone have more info on these two? Perhaps some inside information?

    Well, I bred a mare to Qredit and just sold her in foal. The buyer loved her pedigree and the stallion she was bred to, so I am thinking his foals are popular The mare is a purebred Arabian by Ohadi Ben Rabba.

      I am a newly converted fan of Quarterback after seeing so many of his mares last summer! Shame you don't have good frozen of his b/c here in the US his frozen has been quite successful.

      I don't know much about Qredit but did see Quaterhall and a few of his offspring last summer. Very nice stallion, substantial in size, good temperament in hand. The mares of his that I saw were also quite substantial in size (not sure about their dams) and had three nice gaits in hand. Obviously nothing of theirs under saddle yet so that is a question. However, all the Quaterback mares I saw that had completed their MPT already had very good rideability scores.

        Allanglos - Jeepers that should be a very showy foal, no wonder the mare sold in foal!

        BF - So you've actually seen Quaterhall? Cool! The current photo of him shows a lovely horse, with a short back, long neck, cute pony face. His limbs look ok, but I would rather he had a much longer length of hip. Actually a bigger backside altogether. Is it just the photo or did you notice his butt didn't match his front?

        The Hanoverian mare I have in mind is not great in the back end with a too-straight hind limb as well. I think the bloodlines cross well and the Q-D movement would compliment her but I need a stallion with a massive rear end.

          Does anyone have a good conformation picture of Quarterhall?


          • #6
            Yes, I saw him last summer at the stallion station. I don't remember thinking his looked dis-proportioned but looking at the photo I took his hind quarters do look less than the ideal "1/3". However, I do not mind the angles of his limbs...pasterns maybe a bit long but not too much. The only picture I have of Quaterhall is on my website. Scroll down:


            Hind end conformation of the Q-line is the thing I worry about as it is Quaterback's weak point too. That is why I have not bred him to my Davignon mare...that is her weak point as well. However, if you have a mare with a strong hind end I would use Quaterback in a second. All the mares I saw of his had great trots, even had decent walks, well conformed and very good temperaments (based on MPT results).

            I did not see any offspring of Quaterhall (too young) so the jury is out on him. Not sure what his SPT scores were for rideability but that may be something worth looking up.

              Have you seen the Celle site for Quaterhall? They have a nice informational video too:

                Thanks for all the info.

                I don't know how I missed that video! It was nice to see him being worked outside. He looks like he'd be a super lovely ride and his butt looks way better in the video than the photo!

                  Would see if you could get semen of Quadroneur. . Have bred to Quaterback three times and was quite happy with the resulting foals now coming four. I think Quadroneur is my favorite son so far. Lovely type and gaits.

                      Thank you both for showing me those pics of Quarterhall, they've been super useful!


                      • #12
                        I saw Quarterhall at Celle, very nice horse, quite tall, very leggy, nice neck, cute face. Though I thought he has long cannon bones, particularly in the back, and he is quite straight in the hind legs. But overhall very nice stallion, and quite charming with a nice friendly personality

                          We had a filly born last year by Qredit out of a Riverman mare. She has an absolutely fabulous temperament and is much less spicy than her dam. She was so easy to take to her inspection and was so well behaved. She is more refined than her dam, very leggy and very elastic and big in her movement. I would describe her as a real athlete.

                            Thanks everyone for the insights.

                            LucyMay - do you have any pics of your Qredit filly?


                            • #15
                              I too have seen many many quaterbacks. Wide wide range in movement and temperment. I have just bought a dose of Quaterhall, and have seen him as a 3 and 4 year old, well, he is going to need a quiet mare for sure lol. Very pretty and leggy stallion.. Qredit is very substansial, so would need a lighter mare.

                              I have a filly here out of a quaterback dam and she is leggy and refined. So, who knows, may be a little gamble for me, and I might not use my Quaterhall semen this year until I see more offspring (Last year was his first crop)

                                I do..I'm not sure how to post but if you PM I believe I can attach them.

                                  Might also be worth looking at the young stallion Quateron

                                  Quaterback x Stedinger x Lord Sinclair.

                                    Both Quadroneur and Quateron are QxSH crosses. I would be worried about a less-than-stellar walk from this cross. But the trot on Quateron is very impressive!

                                      A friend had a gawjus, very correct filly last year by Qredit out of an Arabian mare-- Quaterlinie

                                      She was so happy with Linie, that she bred the same mare back to Qredit. Foal is expected very soon!
