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.

    Great info! My horse has both 776 and 18b1 from his sire. I always knew he was special...

      Yeah, I have two granddaughters of Ramiro, and their daughters by Iroko Keur, Pablo and the 2008 filly by Ikoon, a son of Libero H out of a Nimmerdor mare, which brings Farn into that pedigree.

        Since i am dense it is not readily apparent to me what methodlogy was applied to come up with these mare lines (yes-- I know I will be told to look it up) --But on its face--some of the horses listed as supporting the list have not competed for years but are known as important sires (e.g. QDR) -others are competing right now (Authentic, Coster)...so is the mare line from the sires of FEi jumpers-- or the mare lines of all competitors in the last 10-20 years or a combinition?

        At one time xx mare family 9c I think was on the list but the main representative was erdball (born long ago) who shows up only but often as a "dam's sire" on the FEI sire list-so I was confused even then as the list did not appear to be derived from the maternal mare line of competitors.

          Interesting info thanks! I too am wondering about how the math is run behind those listings. Is this show jumping only? Also since no official numbering system is in place (yet) for Hanoverian marelines how did that number with the Hanoverian line mentioned come up? Did they go with the Schridde book data?

            Kareen, according to one of the statisticians , it is based on the number of 1.50 meter international grand prix horses said mare family has produced. And yes, it is only showjumpers.

            I don't know how but someone has come up with a number for each mare family of each studbook. This Hannoveraner family 763 has obviously been numbered this way for a while or they couldn't have kept up with their showjumping progeny from this mare line.

              and this is where we fall behind in the U.S. Out of curiosity, do you know how many of the U.S. big grand prix are "International"?

              It is my understanding that part of the membership in the WBFSH is the direct influence with the FEI to "authorize" a sport as "rankable". Obviously, the euro studbooks have an incentive to try and get as many "home" events ranked as possible to give a better chance of their homebreds being ranked - though with the easy proximity for some of the countries, horses can participate in many events.

              With the US studbooks having little if no influence, many of the U.S. GPs aren't ranked, therefor the ability for any U.S. bred horses (if they get that far) to be ranked will be also little to none along with any marelines that might come about.

                  I think there are around 13 USA FEI recognized events. Canada has maybe 4. It's been a while since I looked them up. 4 or more of the USA ones are part of Wellington.

                  By contrast GBR and IRL combined had 12. I remember being surprised that Italy had so many FEI shows, more than 65. Germany had the most.

                  FEI approved showjumping competitions are very expensive to hold. The required pize money is enormous and the entry fees are capped. A lot of services have to be provided free to the competitors. It is possible that one of the reasons there aren't a lot of approved events here is the cost involved. I think at the 4 star level the $ required are around $250,000. There aren't a lot of GP's held here with that much money involved.

                  The FEI website does have a searchable db of approved shows and information about required prizemoney. As I said, it's been a while since I looked up the requirements so they may have changed.

                      I'm rather dense too. Do each of these stamms/motherlines trace back to one mare and then directly through her daughters, etc. to the present day?

                      Because didn't I read here somewhere that breeders are assigned stamm numbers, not the mares? Or is the stamm assigned to a breeder who has used a single mare family for generations in his/her breeding program?

                      Please explain.

                        As Kareen already said. Theere is no offical family numbering in Hanoverian breeding. Someone thought has collected mare line information a for making things easier numbered the damlines he listed. I find a 763 there and it icludses the privately owned stallion Tresor of Belgium (it does not give info on his show record tough) but also listed for this family are Olympic star under Todd Minikus, Borsalino Heike Kemmer, Walloony Tomy Hassmann.
                        And this should be the hanoverian mare family with the most success in international GP jumping ? I wonder who is lacking information there.

                          Only certain international shows (basically big shows with big prize money) are counted in the WBFSH/FEI points and rankings. A small 1-star show, and even 2-star shows, are not calculated in the rankings to the best of my memory. There is no grand conspiracy against the US.

                          The ranking of the marelines is meaningless without a denominator. Some mare familes are huge while others are small. What should be calculated is the number of international competitors per 100 animals.

                              In the USA and Canada international shows are organized differently than in Europe. For example a rider can bring a string of horses to Wellington in mid-January and he or she has international classes to compete in for the next three months, until mid-March, without interruption. That is a huge advantage in terms of stress of travel, etc. The same goes with Spruce Meadows.

                                Tom, I don't think there is any grand conspiracy against the U.S. It is just that WBFSH rankings are predominately EU based. Matter of fact, there is a WBFSH committee just to "deal" with "Non-EU countries"

                                There are events that are rankable in EU countries that junior riders can compete in ranking those horses & bloodlines that a junior rider rides all in addition to the young horse classes that also rank those horses/bloodlines.

                                Contrast that with the U.S. where only a horse competing with a top rider at the absolute top of the sport would be able to get ranked.

                                And, do you have any idea what it would take money-wise to keep even ONE horse at Wellington for THREE MONTHS?

                                Meanwhile, there are $50,000 GPs and up at places like Santa Anita, etc that will never be ranked but see some of our best horses & riders.

                                  You can find the exact way the rankings are calculated here:

                                  WBFSH use those FEI rankings for their calculation.

                                    Thank you for posting that. There is nothing like information.

                                    Tri, you wrote: "There are events that are rankable in EU countries that junior riders can compete in ranking those horses & bloodlines that a junior rider rides all in addition to the young horse classes that also rank those horses/bloodlines."

                                    I am not completely clear what you are trying to say but if I understand you correctly you are wrong.

                                    Young horse classes at international shows, even at big shows, typcially do not have the prize money that would make them rankable. And a Grand Prix in a 2-star show is not rankable if the prize money is less than CHF 7,500.

                                    The costs in the US may be hgher -- don't blame European for that -- but the prize money in the
                                    US is much better. Condios' former rider was amazed when he moved to the US. Even small GPs would have great prize money, multiples of what would be available in Europe at the same level of competition. So it works both ways.

A small 1-star show, and even 2-star shows, are not calculated in the rankings to the best of my memory. There is no grand conspiracy against the US.

                                      The ranking of the marelines is meaningless without a denominator. Some mare familes are huge while others are small. What should be calculated is the number of international competitors per 100 animals.
                                      I dis-agree that the rankings are meaningless. If they were, they wouldn't bother with compiling the data. Yes, some families are bigger than others but we have the huge family 776 as #1 but we have another huge family 730b that is not in the top 25 . Production is production and it is what it is.

                                      I agree with you that it would be more telling if they went with international horses per 100 produced by each stutenstamme.

                                        I am referring to the overall WBFSH rankings. It is hard to figure out what is actually rankable and what isn't - I don't think that link is all there is to it.

                                        Here is another link from the WBFSH http://www.wbfsh.org/?GB/Activities/...mpionship.aspx

                                        And here is another one http://www.wbfsh.org/?GB/Activities/Annual%20Plan.aspx

                                        There are stallion rankings, studbook rankings, the OT of the top 25 mare families....

                                        and all of it pulls from data from the WBFSH which is predominately EU based.

                                        In addition, from what I understand from the WBFSH statutes, that a horse is not automatically included even if the horse is competing/winning at int'l level. Someone or something - usually the studbook the horse is registered with - has to turn in the information on the horse to the WBFSH. So if an American horse is competing and the studbook doesn't turn in the info, the horse doesn't get the points.

                                        Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not blaming the europeans for anything. I am just stating the lay of the land and I am still trying to learn details and the accuracy of the information....which, once again, is much harder for Americans to find out because the whole system is one that is set up "over there" with little information about it here.
