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.

  • Warmblood Guru's! I need help finding a Stallion!

    Hello forum,

    I have a beautiful 16'2" Swedish WB Mare that I am looking for a Stallion for. She has a great attitude, good work ethic, she is near unbeatable at the high child/adults and has done the Low Ams. My main goal is to get something with plenty of scope and bravery (although she has that in spades). She is a tiny bit "unorthodox" in her way of going so I don't think breeding to something "hot" would be a good match, having said that, "Flexible" is on the list . Unfortunately I do not have much of her bloodline, I have asked the girl I bought her from but she never got back to me. Hopefully you guys can help me out! Currently in the running are: Judgment, Flexible, and Gemini(Gem Twist clone) but I welcome suggestions. Thanks for reading! And here are some pics:

      Gemini is certainly a hotter type guy from what has been written. No foals of riding age, so no clear answers there. I'm not a jumper breeder, so certainly not an expert there -- but, I do think most of the savvy breeders will want to know what you can offer regarding her lineage as well as more explanation about what is "unorthodox" about her jumping. She is a lovely mare! You should look into whether she has to be approved for breeding with her registry and if you have registration papers, her lineage should be easy to trace. Where you think she needs some help is also good information for recommendations.

        Look at these two

        How about Fine romance? Are you breeding for yourself or the sales market?though he's been used primarily for hunters; the Jupiters have plenty of scope and very correct technique/ form

            If I were breeding Swedish, Irco Mena is one I'd consider.....

              2nd vote for Irco Mena. He is known for passing on a great temperment. He has also had lots of high level offspring. I ran across a comment somewhere that the head of Zangersheide stud had said the one horse he wished he had used more was Irco Mena.

              Great looking mare :-)

                You do not provide your mare's pedigree, so I have no idea if my suggestions will be too close for linebreeding.

                If you're keeping with SWANA, Irco Mena is spectacular. Bo Crabo is getting close to retirement now, but is especially knowledgable and would help you make a great choice.

                Other stallions you could research include:
                Amran 866 (Nimmerdor/Uppercut xx)
                Electro 778 (Voltaire / Tivoli / Amor)
                Robin Z 723 (Ramiro Z / Alpha Z / Alme Z)

                These 3 are deceased, but their frozen is still available.

                Your mare has a nice type and a complete outcross could be considered, such as Checkmate or Balou du Rouet or one of his rather fabulous sons. If you speak with SWANA ahead of time, I don't think they'd have a problem registering a foal from any of those stallions. They are registering my Sagnol foal this year out of my ASVH mare.
                Practice! Patience! Persistence!

                  The most helpful advice I can give you is research! Find out your mares bloodlines - it is essential in helping you figure out what baby daddy will most likely improve what you want to improve. Then take the time to look at offspring from the stallions you put on a short list. Look at the sore and dam sire of stallions you like. What traits do you see in the family that you hope to add to your mares qualities? For a first time breeder and a maiden (?) mare I would suggest looking for older, more established bloodlines, so you can really study offspring and make sure you like what you see. Then make sure you understand the pros and cons of frozen vs fresh - and make double sure if you are looking at frozen that you are using an experienced repro vet with a lot of experience with frozen semen. This is such a fun part of the breeding experience, but make sure you do your homework in order to end up with the best results. And never be afraid to ask questions! Good luck for a successful, fun experience.

                    We bred our Swedish WB mare (Roderick x Modesto) mare to our stallion Imothep and produced a very athletic, elastic and taller son. She's only about 16 h yet she jumped international 1.60m for the Swedish team under Helena Lundback. She is scopey and blooded. Good thing she was if she was jumping that big and successfully.!

                    Imothep gave this son his best traits, size, strong hind end, athletic movement and tempered the blood. A stallion to consider perhaps?
