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.

  • Old style DWBs

    Anyone breeding, or know who is, breeding the "old style" heavier DWB horses?

    I had a gelding I adored and can't find another with the bone he had.

    Or the big old moose head.

    Anyone?

    We have two older style Dutch mares (one o/o a high % Gelderlander dam) and a Dutch cross mare in our breeding program; however, due to market demand have been crossing them on more modern boys. I do like the old style Dutch WBs though!

        Check out Lazy J Sporthorses. She has 2 Dutch mares with some Gelder blood. Had a beautiful filly out of one of her mares by Ijsselmeer Ikepono. I see the filly's pics on Facebook, I think she's 2 now and has a lot of substance. They did a repeat breeding and currently she has the full sibling, for sale. Scroll down to Hilfiger, http://lazyjsporthorses.com/Youngstock.html

        Couldn't help myself, had to come back and link to a picture of the filly, there's a few more pics of her in the album

          I am breeding KWPN Gelders horses as well as German Oldenburg. I currently have 3 Gelders mares and a weanling filly who earned very high scores at the KWPN-NA keuring and was rated the top dressage young horse at the Ontario inspection. I am expecting another Gelders foal late in May. There aren't too many of us in North America who are maintaining the older bloodlines.

              Have you looked at the Dutch Harness Horses? They are the "other" type of horse the KWPN registers. The Gelderlander base stock with Hackney Horse and to a smaller part Saddlebred used for outcross/improvement blood. But they tend to have a higher % Gelderlander than most Dutch Warmblood Riding type horses. Besides showing in fine harness type classes they are very popular for combined driving and many have made dressage mounts and even show jumpers.

              This is a Facebook picture, so I hope you can see it. This is a Dutch Harness Horse mare whose owner decided to train her as a jumper (he also fox hunts her) https://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphot...52474216_n.jpg She was the 2012 United States Hunter Jumper Assoc. Zone 7 Champion Horse of the Year- High Adult Division. Here is a standing photo of the same mare https://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphot...10452104_n.jpg And here she was in Holland, one of the top mares at her Harness Horse keuring https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphot..._5213590_n.jpg If you can't see the pics find Thomas D Neese on FB and ask him about Ugone! Added- I found video of Ugone http://youtu.be/DOgylxc8Tjg http://youtu.be/Y76UWElOjc0

              This is also a Dutch Harness Horse http://youtu.be/VawFkVMHRg8 Constance Menard and Lianca

              Chester Weber's Jamaica (as well as several other horses on his team) is also a Dutch Harness Horse (half Hackney to be exact, being by the Hackney Horse Cambridge Cole) http://www.chesterweber.com/hjamaica.html

                I have some older dutch bloodlines in my mares, big solid girls, some of them have the older style heads, but as others have said, to meet current market demands I breed them to very modern style stallions. The more typey heads,and leggier long lined type is what most people want

                  Be still my heart, these are the horses I truly love! The old style Dutch horses, the Gelders blood, the Tuigpaard horses that are heavy on the Gelders blood.

                  I am ever so hopeful that the pendulum swings back this way, if only a little bit.

                  It is wonderful to see you the breeders that still value them.

                    Got one if you like pintos! Dam is older style gelders type...this guy has big bone and feet and the "noble head". Went against the trend that year and bred to a less "modern" stallion. It paid off...inspection scores were our best yet!

                      For what it's worth, I believe that Lianca is straight Gelders.

                        Lianca is in the Harness Horse book. Up until the mid-90s there were horses in the Harness Horse book that had no improvement blood, but were bred from the traditional fancy trotting driving lines in Holland. Lianca's sire, an approved Tuigpaard (Harness Horse) http://hengsten.kwpn.nl/HengstenInfo...D=eaq7WNR/XEs=

                        The last approved stallion in the Harness Horse book that was 100% Dutch was Fortissimo (although if I remeber right he was watchlisted).

                        Also I managed a small Ducth Harness Horse breeding program that had the mare Etinkie keur preferent prestatie who was 100% Dutch. Her full brother was a Grand Prix dressage horse in Holland in the early '90s (Atuur). Her great-grandson now stands in America (Waldemar http://www.horsetelex.nl/horses/pedigree/120758) http://youtu.be/hOtCsXKRt1M

                          LOL, DWB is the abbreviation for Danish Warmblood. If you want Dutch Warmblood, you probably need to look for KWPN horses.

                          But speaking of Danish horses, the Danish Oldenburg is a heavy, old style type of horse (not a Danish-bred "German Oldenburg" horse - it's a totally different registry and type of horse). There is also the Fredericksborg horse, but they tend to be more coach style horses.

                            KWPN , not DWB wrong abbreviation

                            Thanks for all the replies, I do mean Dutch Warmblood. Most of you were thoughtful enough to figure it out.

                            The Dutch Harness horses are lovely, but tend toward the hot side. Someone suggested an Irish Draught, and while lovely and big boned, aren't quite what I'm looking for. That and all the ones have the conformation I have in mind are enormous.

                            The pictures you've linked to are lovely.

                            I'll find what I want eventually, it will probably be someone's disapointment and exactly what I'm looking for.

                              I have been around quite a few of them in the combined driving world and haven't necessarily found this to be true. Sure, some are (as are some in all breeds/lines), but most I've known don't seem to be.

                              You could contact Debbie Harrison and see if she has anything that fits the bill. http://www.liolomasdutchwarmbloods.com/

                                Mine certainly is. He's actually DWB (Danish) x KWPN (Dutch harness), and it's tough to tell where the hotness comes from. He's a great GP dressage horse though, as is one of Lauren Spreiser's horses. And he's settled down quite a bit as he's gone up the levels, for what it's worth.

                                    We have Farrington here who is one of the few riding type KWPN stallions that when crossed with a Gelders mare can get gelders papers for the foal. I love his line. I breed for the modern type but with good bone and size. Not so much the heads you describe.

                                      I couldn't agree more!!!! Would love to see more pics of real old style Gelder horses (or any Dutch!)

                                      Here is a CHUNK of a KWPN mare that I saw for sale locally. Saved the pic without the name of horse - darn. But talk about old type (not Modern at ALL)
