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.

  • Russian Warmblood

    Not sure if this should be posted in here....

    We have been looking for a jumper and have found the perfect horse. It's a Russian Warmblood, which I have never heard of. Can anyone tell me about this breed or point to somewhere that can?

    There are different types of Russian WB's. I have an Orlov-Rostopchin, which is actually a Russian Riding horse and he is world class. Tell us more about this horse and maybe I can point you in the right direction.

        Help with Russian Riding Horses

        One of our boarders is a preservation breeder of the Russian Riding
        Horse, the Orlov-Rostopshin. She has told me they are bred for
        dressage and jumping. All the ones here are black or black bay.
        If the horse in question is black, perhaps it is a member of that
        type. You can email me and I will pass on the contact information
        for this lady if you are interested. I am sure she can tell you quite
        a bit about the breed; I know she loves them.

          I thought the Orlovs were gray. An endurance rider in CA years ago won the Tevis Cup on an Orlov. I thought they looked magnificent and wanted one but they are kind of rare in NA, aren't they? Black would be even better though. :-)

            ... and don't forget those WONDERFUL budyonnys! There are less than 30 budyonnys in the US, and we're lucky enough to own one. I do the amateur owner jumpers with mine.

              Nope, he is a chestnut. I attached a link to his picture incase it helps!

                O-R are bred to be black and are bred for dressage. They are amazing horses and very rare. If it is chestnut it may be a budyonnys, they tend to be jumpers.

                  I believe Rhythmical Nona Garson's grand prix mount was a Russian warmblood. I know his brother Susdal, whom a friend of mine purchased and he was an awesome very catlike jumper.

                    I don't believe there is a breed actually called a Russian WB.

                    But there are breeds used in Russia for dressage/jumping/eventing -- several of them.

                      There actually is a Russian Warmblood, prior to the break up of the Soviet Union, Russian horses were bred on communes, the Russian Warmbloods were bred in Latvia. The first ones were brought over in the late 80s, there were 36 of them, one was a stallion. I ended up with 4 of them. They had papers.

                        I have a registered Latvian Warmblood with original papers. She was a jumper then event horse and is now a mom - had a beautiful Ironman colt this year! She is lovely.

                            Yes, there is a russian warmblood and they have their own registry. Recently they announced they would be inspecting horses in the U.S. as well. Their website however has been hacked or something.

                            They developed, again like all the other warmblood registries (except the U.S.) by using native mare bases with hotbloods. In Russia, they used some Akel-Teke as well for the hot-blood infusion and they are very forthright that draught type horses were used in the creation. Russian warmblood were also imported into Sweden and were used in swedish warmblood breeding.

                                A friend who bought a very classy TB filly from us a couple years ago now has said young mare in foal to this guy


                                I was a bit intrigued by the description of his registration(s). He may be a good cross on the mare, though - and we hope the resultant foal is nice.

                                  What color is the guy you're looking at?

                                  I'd love to find another budyonny - he's quite talented and has this edge to him. Hard to explain...

                                    Could he possibly be a Russian Trakehner?

                                      Those are some more pictures of him, he almost looks like an arab in some of those pictures....
                                      I am going to the farm tomorrow so maybe I can get more details on his specific breeding.
