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.

  • TB stallions (or RIDSH) with great performance pedigree?

    I am looking for a TB stallion or maybe a RIDSH with at least 1/2 TB to breed to 2 RID/RIDSH mares. We are looking for correct conformation and bone, good temperament and athletic ability. Also there would have to be the ability to get shipped cooled semen. Eastern or Midwest US preferred.
    Did anybody use a good stallion with a great pedigree, maybe with a youngster on the ground or even better, competing (eventing)? Not looking for a 'famous' stallion, but for the right one! Love Sociano's pedigree but not sure about shipping. Anybody breed to him?
    Thanks for any information!

    I wonder if Corporate Report is still standing.... He's got eventing offspring (with FEI passports) and a nice pedigree for sport.

    He also won enough on the track to have fulfilled his RPSI sport requirement so his foals would also be eligible for registry that way.

          Check out Sea Lion, first foals due in 2013 but a proven *** horse, ATA and Old/ISR approved. His sire, Sea Salute, also sired Out To Sea, an Intermediate Eventer, Sea Lord, prelim eventer and GP dressage horse, and Vassago, prelim eventer as well as others.

          Also what about Salute The Truth? Triple Twist is line bred Bonne Nuit, he has passed away but has foals on the ground and frozen available.

            Take a look at our stallion Just a Devil. His first foal, Lucky Devil(the only one from this year) is coming 8 and competing at the Intermediate level with hopes of Advanced in the near future. A 7 year old gelding just sold as an upper level prospect. Another young mare is currently competing at training level and schooling prelim. And the 5 and 6 year old mares we have here are showing great promise.
            He has a great pedigree and is putting athletes with great brains on the ground.

                  What about Flexible? He certainly has had a long career as an upper level show jumper.

                    I just learned about the TB stallion Rather Well, who evented to Advanced (see current-but-older thread that I just bumped up to get more info/ feedback on him). He has really caught my interest based on his own performance record, pedigree (exemplary for sport), and the type and accomplishments of his babies.

                    As it happens, I'm also looking for a full TB or high%TB warmblood to cross to my ISH mare, who incidentally is a Carrig View daughter (one of the Acorn Hill stallions someone else suggested). It's been awhile and i just took a quick look at Carrig View's page again, and realized my mare exactly gets her head/ neck conformation from him. that's the only part of her I'd really like to refine in a foal.

                    I'm actually struggling a bit now as there are so many interesting options out there! And the other current thread on first-time breeders is also giving me pause... lots of great points to consider.

                      Depends on what you are breeding for. Are you breeding for yourself to bring a foal along as far as it can go and won't be disappointed if you never make it to an FEI competition? Are you hoping to breed for CCIs or CICs? Are you wanting to breed a 3*/4* horse who might come in the top ten? Big difference in the stallion that you might choose.

                      Just so you'll know, Rather Well has no offspring registered with the USEF. He's a beautiful horse but I'm also unable to find him in the Dutch database that I use to find FEI results with pedigrees. That's not to say that he doesn't have dozens of get running around events in Canada and the US; it's just that he doesn't seem have any that have him listed as sire.

                        vineyridge- thanks for your further comments. I always read any post of yours I see re: pedigrees!

                        Perhaps Rather Well's owner can provide a little more info around currently- competing offspring?

                          Thanks very much for all the helpful replies. There is quite a few interesting suggestions. Lots of outdated/lacking info out there (like tamarackhill).
                          Very much like Sea Lion and Sea Accounts.
                          Does anybody have a Formula One or an Aberjack under saddle?
                          And of course Just a Devil has got a great pedigree too.
                          Lots of choices. Got to find the right one for our girls.

                              Just contact Denny Emerson, he is very VERY active on facebook, lol.

                              Posted about Aberjack just this morning

                                Aberjack would be very iffy, IMO. He may not be in a good situation for himself or breeders (per rumor, so may not be true) since rumor says he may not be very fertile these days possibly due to age.

                                Just a couple of other bits of information from the Dutch FEI database.

                                Salute the Truth is in on his own record at FEI competitions (never in the top ten) and Formula One isn't there yet.

                                Aberjack is, and he was the leading sire of US event horses before the move to California.

                                It all depends on what you want. If you want an UL horse, wouldn't it make sense to breed to one who has done them himself or sired horses who have?

                                In terms of generational breeding, you could breed to Pallas Digion (sp), who has proven offspring, hope for a filly, and then breed her to a TB like AFR or the much younger Sea Lion or Sea Accounts. By then you'd be able to have a feel for what the younger stallions produce. Of course by then, AFR will be aged and might not still be standing.

                                For a totally out of the box suggestion, there is an aged TB stallion in Virginia named Default. He's done hunters himself, has a lovely pedigree, and is drop dead gorgeous but very creaky, per information.

                                  Turkowar (TB)--Not well-known, but a stakes-winning grandson of Turkoman, with Alydar, Hoist the Flag and Crozier (twice) in his pedigree. Correct conformation and super quiet disposition. Available live cover and shipped cooled semen. He stands at Oakwood Farm in Missouri.

                                  No we don't own him, but looking forward to a Turkowar baby in June.
