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.

  • Buddenbrock offspring

    Who has them? Wondering what they're like in terms of movement, temperament, what does he really stamp his foals with? Will he improve the front end/shoulder area?

    Thanks!

    It's hard finding info on him, as I've heard his current owner isn't too tech savvy? lol.

    He won't necessairly improve movement so don't expect him to do that. However he produces very rideable athletic horses.

    I think you need to look at his offspring and look for similarities between them.

      I have one coming next month so can't answer your question exactly. However, when doing my research before breeding, and what influenced my decision to use him were:

      1-won't improve movement but won't worsen it either. My mare has three good gaits (great walk and canter) so I felt a safe match here.

      2-will improve type...as typical for the Trak horse. This is what I am hoping to do with this generation (if I get a filly)

      3-he scores well for limbs, neck, shoulder according to the Hannoveraner stallion yearbook. Limb conformation was important to me

      4-good rideability of offspring. He was not an heavily used stallion but still produced two high profile FEI dressage offspring with King Arthur and Connery. Is also the grandsire of Imperio (via Connery). He also produces athleticism with jumping offspring...another good trait I wanted to add to my dressage bred horses.

      I searched youtube and found offspring of his that had video. All the ones I saw were not the flashiest movers, but had three good gaits. They were all very rideable and many working at 3rd level and above.

      I have been wanting to add Trak blood to my Hanoverians and desperately wanted Hohenstein (tried with no luck). When Buddenbrock was imported I was excited because I think he has similar attributes to pass along.

      I'll post pics of the foal hopefully next month!

        His breeding index from the Trakehner Verband mare inspections showed that Buddenbrock was above average in every catagory, with the canter and limbs being extreamly high but all three gait scores were well above the average, and because of the large number of daughter inspected, he had a very high predictablity score.

          There are several matures daughters in North America that were bred in Germany and imported. I am sure there are pictures of them on the internet if you look for them.
          I purchased my mare in Germany at the age of two. She is a premium mare and I bred her before I imported her. Her first and only foal so far is going for his stallion approval this year.
          My mare is very athletic, and never runs out of energy. Her dam has a proven show record as well. There is no doubt that Buddenbrock is her sire when you look at pictures of the two of them.
          I consider myself very lucky that I was able to buy one of his daughters!

            In his own population, B is a clear movement improver.

            Quote from above:
            >>4-good rideability of offspring. He was not an heavily used stallion but still produced two high profile FEI dressage offspring with King Arthur and Connery<<

            Not quite correct. Connery never competed at FEI, the highest he went was M level (3rd/4th US). However, there are several FEI dressage horses, one most notable is the international GP winner Hinnerk TSF (Hubertus Schmidt, Carola Koppelmann). Buddenbrock's strength is the fact that he produces all around athletes that compete at the highest level in all THREE major equestrian disciplines - and Connery (his son) has the same prepotency as a sire. Jury still out on Imperio - offspring too young to tell. When you continue the line in the other direction - sire Sixtus, grandsire Habicht, great grand sire Burnus AAH - without exception stallions of major sire proportions with tremendous impact on sport horse breeding - all disciplines!!
            Buddenbrock was definitely "heavily used" - he has a large number of offspring in Germany. He is from a very consistent family of horses, many of them very much true to type, you usually know exactly what you get when you breed to them. He is not a big gamble.

            In the US, his daughter SPS+PS In Zukunft out in California is a good example of what he produces with a good mare - a clone of himself, and in InZu's case a horse that was 1) highest inspected 3yr old of her population in the entire country (GER) with an exceptional performance test, 2) placed and winning in young dressage horse, event horse and show jumper classes and to underline her versatiliy - in hand driving classes, 3) in the US winning at 4th level. SUPER sport horse. That's Buddenbrock in a nutshell, granted he won't do miracles when you breed him to a donkey, but no stallion will :-)

              Oh yes, sorry my comments of not heavily used was in reference to him being used with Hanoverians.

              And my comments of limb improvement, movement, etc are in reference to the indexes of his offspring in the Hanoverian horse.

              Obviously the Trak Verband will have greater data.

                      Here is another video of that stallion. His name is Lacroze Selsø. Anyone know anything about him? I assume, based on his name, he is in some Nordic country and it appears he was champion of his stallion licensing??

                        This Buddenbrock mare, though never competed, has produced some very nice offspring.
