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.

Thanks for being a part of the COTH forums!

  • Looking for eventing stallions :)

    Have three mares that I am looking for stallions for. All TBs. eventing sires needed, prefer cooled over frozen. Prefer bay and chestnuts, but open for the right boy . Temperament, train ability, and conformation are the most important

    1: Arkadian Rayne, must have a stallion that produces a long well set neck with more suspension in the trot. She has an amazing temperament and is very quiet. Grey, 16.1, but her neck is short.


    2: Edge Effect, looking for a larger stallion 16-17+ hands. Must have good temperament. Great movement, needs straighter front legs. Dark bay, 15.1, little long in the barrel.


    3: Lustre's Image. Need a stallion with more suspension, stronger loin, and quickness off the ground at the jump. Big 16.3 so want a smaller 15.3-16.3 stallion. Medium temperament so don't want anything hot. Bright blood bay, a little thick in the throat latch.


    Thank you for any help and suggestions!!

    You didn't say if you were looking for a TB or WB (or other for that matter!) stallion.

    If you are considering TBs, please take a look at Sea Accounts. If you are unfamiliar with him, he's 16.3 1/2, black, 1999, son of Kentucky Derby winner Sea Hero out of a Private Account mare. He successfully completed the 2004 100-day stallion test with the 2nd highest score ever given to a TB in North America. He is licensed by the GOV, ATA and RPSI.

    He has competed through 4th level test 2 in dressage and is currently competing at Intermediate with Mike Huber. He and Mike had 4 top 4 finishes at Prelim including two wins in the last six months...and Mike catch rides him (literally a couple of times before an event).

    Additionally, he has an incredible temperament and work ethic. If you know any Gold Chip riders, I encourage you to call them and ask them about Cy at shows and in the barn.

    Best of all, he's producing...his oldest are only 8 and he has one CCI* qualified (she was recently sold so not sure what the new owner's plans are) and one made his mini-prix debut in NY over the weekend and finished 2nd!

    He has a FB page under Sea Accounts with lots of pics and vids of him and his offsprng.

    For other eventing stallions, you might do a search on this forum, there have been a number of threads about eventing stallions....RIDs, WBs and TBs.

    Good luck in your search!!

                  If you're better at searching than I am, there are several recent multi-page threads. I can't find any of them when I search, but they have tons of suggestions if you can do better than I did!

                  Do you want a stallion who has specifically evented, or who has strengths your horses lack as far as talent?

                  For example, my 3 year old's sire, Oskar II *pg* was a GP dressage horse bred to be a jumper. My filly shows all signs she could be fabulous as an eventer, but I'll be using her for dressage. I suspect most Trakehners will be good options, as Molly suggested!

                  I'm biased toward Tatendrang from having seen some of his youngsters and having purchased my filly from his owner - I just absolutely love her program, which includes him!
                  If Kim Kardashian wants to set up a gofundme to purchase the Wu Tang album from Martin Shkreli, guess what people you DON'T HAVE TO DONATE.

                      Mighty Magic is 3/4 TB, his dam sire is Heraldik xx one of the leading of sires of event horses. He's branded Holsteiner, has lovely movement and is bay. He's available in the US now. http://www.superiorequinesires.com/s...htymagic.shtml, www.globalequinesires.com
                      Both carry him.

                        Concerto Grosso

                        Concerto Grosso, a licensed Holsteiner with the AHHA and ISR/OldNA has been producing some lovely eventers. His son, Counterpoint, was the 2011 Reserve Champion USEA West Coast 4yo.YEH with his Amateur Owner and just competed at his first CCI* a few weeks ago. Another youngster who is half-TB has just started his career in NC. Denny Emerson loves CG babies.

                        At age 15, Concerto started his eventing career with my daughter this winter in Ocala. He had not been shown for over a decade and never crosscountry schooled until three weeks before his first competiton. He went Novice and was in the ribbons.

                        Concerto is by Concerto II who is by Contender. He is also 1/4 Thoroughbred through his dam sire, Koenigspark xx, who was also approved to provide some "flash". What I like about CG is that his babies are so willing and friendly which makes them totally amateur friendly. They are good movers and well put together. I have yet to see one that isn't an improvement on the mare. Two years ago, the only two CG Holsteiner mares presented at the AHHA inspections were champions of their sites with scores of 50 and 49.

                        His semen ships well and most of his mares conceive on the first shipment if the receiving vet is any good.

                        Visit his Facebook page for photos.
