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.

  • Dressage Stallion for Cor Noir mare- Pictures Added!

    One more Stallion advice thread...

    Not my horse, just posting on behalf of the owner.

    16.2, 7 year old dark bay Holsteiner mare by Cor Noir out of a Thoroughbred mare, already approved for breeding with AHHA as far as I am told. Has already had 2 foals, beautiful hunter types but they were by hunter stallions. Mare herself has more dressage type movement then hunter, HUGE upright canter, and much more springy knee action then the hunter people would like

    New owner purchased her 5 months ago and started her under saddle himself, she is so easy going and nice!

    Owner is a professional that can handle a hot ride, so he does not mind a pro ride type stallion. He wants the baby for himself. I showed him a bunch of stallion videos for fun on YouTube while at the barn today, and he likes the looks/type of Jazz, Netto, UB40, Bretton Woods, Don Principe, and Wynton. Those are just what he likes out of what I showed him, so it seems he likes a modern, leggy stallion.

    Netto is his FAVORITE, but I do not see anywhere that his frozen is available in the states.

    I know nothing about Holsteiner's, so I told him I would come to you all to see if you knew what type/line of dressage stallion crosses well on a Cor Noir mare. Please advise if any of the above mentioned stallions should be considered, and feel free to add additional stallions that are known to cross well to the list!

    He said he would be happy with an exact replica of his mare, only real improvement he wants is her head She has a bit of a roman nose, and wants the foal to have a more petite head

    I have 2 pictures of her I can get a friend to post if needed.

    Thanks all!!

    Hi Samantha,

    If you could post the photos that would help
    What is the goal for the offspring? going up the levels, YH, or top FEI?

    I can only speak for Don Principe offspring out of Contender dam(same sire line as Cor Noir). I have had two and there are a few more out there. They were multi talented horses that were uphill, bold and wanting to work. They could easily do eventing because of the talent for jumping and the fearless outlook on life. They also had top quality gaits with the walk and canter being highlights.
    Temperments are outstanding even though they are sensitive, they are sensible. Hilltop Famr has a free DVD or you can "like" Don Principe on FB or take a look at his son, Doctor Wendell MF, also on FB and at Hilltop

      A good conformation photo would help. She sounds like a good breeding candidate! Cor Noir was certainly lovely -- what is her Thoroughbred lines? It's great that he would like a copy -- that's a great reason to breed. Matching her type is a good idea and figuring where she could use a bit of improvement or a tweak. Many of the Dutch breds are also Holsteiner lines. You could probably speak with Judy Yancey or Kathy Hickerson for recommendations on some of the frozen stallions or Hilltop could possibly make recommendations since they stood Cor Noir. Good luck!

        I am working on getting the pics up (I am not a premium member, so I just e-mailed one who can hopefully post for me!), they are not the greatest, and I don't have a confo shot, but hopefully they can give you an idea!!They were just phone pics I captured at her first show with the owner's student this past Saturday, so they may show up small here.

        Maryanna- I was hoping you would reply I think he would like to go up the levels. He is an R hunter judge that is requested all over the East Coast, and wants something he can show and ride as he would like to expand his riding knowledge. The mare has a super temperament, she really is such a sweetie pie! I told him I am a big fan of your boy, so hopefully he makes his short list!!!

        TKR- I do not know her Tbred lines, he actually is in the process of getting her papers from the owner before the one he purchased her from, but I will try to find out if he could at least get the dam's name or dam sire!

              Lovely mare from the performance shots. Reminds me of the Cor Noir mare I had some years ago. Cor Noir was a very nice sire.

              Personally I think Don Principe would do nicely with her. If your friend is a hunter judge, he may have seen or will see a couple of his offspring. One is a 3 yr old filly doing the hunter breeding classes and theother is doing the hunter derby path. Both have great minds, and do well with their ammy owner. Different "C" holsteiner dams.the full sibling to the one doing the derbies is scoring in the mid 70 as she starts her dressage career.

              That having been said, I would want to keep the "jump" in the canter. I know that my "Prince" can do that based what his offspring are doing competitively in dressage.

              Is the mare in FL? If so, pm me

                A close friend of mine just bought a young Don Principe mare (4 y.o.) and she absolutely adores her. She is very attractive, lovely mover and the nicest temperment. She is very sensible and sweet. She bought her to hopefully go up the levels to FEI. I love her eyes and expression.

                  I also think Don Principe would be a good fit for her.

                        TKR- Thank you

                        Thought I would give you all an update: I spoke with Hilltop Farm, they were SUPER nice!!

                        They said from their roster, from what the owner wants, they brought it down to Ampere, Nego, Chippendale and Don Principe.

                        Since the owner loves Netto (who will not be available in the US until 2014 if anyone is interested), they said Negro would be second best, but he is a heavier stallion.

                        Ampere would be a lighter, more modern match, with some of the same fancy flamboyant gaits that the MO is a fan of, and his get have been showing the same gaits so far!

                        They raved about Don Principe, they said he has the best rideability and temperament. They said the only possible downfall in the MO eyes may be that his gaits are not as flamboyant as the other stallions (which is not a negative by any means in my eyes, nor HTF, they love him!), and it seems that is what the MO really wants, but I am still telling him to take a second look

                        They said Chippendale may be a good choice if the MO does not mind taking a risk, as he is a younger unproven stallion, but may give the more modern look while still getting in the Negro line that the MO seems so fond of.

                          I am all about rideability. Flamboyant gaits are really nice to watch, but if I'm going to ride it, I want a great, willing, steady mind.
