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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums' policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

    Ammy friendly producing stallions

    I have a mare that is a complete treasure. She does her job so well and is such a safe animal. Every trainer I have ridden with has been astounded by her natural rhythmic canter, consistency, and extreme rideability. I have a dream to eventually breed her in the hope of producing the ultimate amateur hunter horse. What stallions would you suggest for this purpose?

    For those of you curious as to what I'd like to add to her conformationally/genetically... here's a little background info (feel free to ignore and purely suggest ammy friendly studs).

    She was sired by Wradar out of a TB mare, but surprisingly is very stocky and about 15.3 or 16 hands, but with plenty of stride (has shown in the AO's very successfully)
    What I'd like to improve: increase length of neck, increase slope of croup (hers is a little short and flat)
    If I were to get really picky, she's a bit long bodied for her height

    Hands down one of the best tempered stallions I have ever met is the Hanoverian stallion Schwarzenegger. http://www.aileronstables.com/schwarzenegger.php
    I have been on hacks with him (with me riding the mare they use to tease him along with other mares) and he was the perfect gentlemen - even with crazy farm equipment that roams the roads in our area.

    I have a foal by him this year and at three months he is already the perfect gentleman for grooming, the farrier, bathing, etc. And he definitely improved on the dam's length of back and leg, and shoulder angles.
    Be firm, fair, kind, clear, consistent, patient, and, above all else, maintain a sense of humour.

      While I think that Sea Accounts has a temperament that is hard to beat in any horse, let alone stallion, I'm posting because of your mare.

      The first mare I bought to breed to Cyriz is was Wradar daughter out of TK/TB mare. We bought her at a sporthorse auction, kinda spur of the moment and she was three.

      I chuckled at your description of her, because it could describe mine! And I've know a few other like her. It's funny, because the sons I've seen are tall and modern and the daughters have all been smaller, heavier, old-style.

      Good luck with your stallion search!

          I will throw Guaranteed Gold into the mix. He consistently produces amazing, Ammy and kid friendly mounts and should also add the refinement, the neck length and a more compact body

            Prototype is shown in the amateur hunter divisions as well as the professional divisions. He acts like a gelding and people always forget he is a stallion because he is so quiet and well behaved His filly we have is just like him. Nothing phases her.

              I love the disposition of our Devon Heir yearling filly. She's been the easiest baby I've ever worked with. I trailered her down this spring from Washington to California and she was completely laid back about that and everything else we've exposed her to. He improved on the neck length and position, and she has a lovely sloped and substantial croup, and incredible movement. He seems to be popular as both a dressage and hunter stallion. Our filly's dam a 16 hands Oldenburg and he's 16.3, but our yearling is already 15 hands so she will probably be in the 16.3-17 range.

                  I can't say if they are the right match for your mare, but Don Alfredo and Landkonig come to mind for temperament.

                    Rubignon is the first name which comes to mind for me for ammy friendly.

                        I have heard nothing but good things about the temperaments of Sir Wanabi's foals. I have two of them (a 3 year old and a 4 month old) and am very pleased with the quiet, easy-going disposition both have demonstrated to date. The 3 year old is out of a very good-tempered mare but the 4 month old's dam is a bit on the hot side; her last colt was a monster to handle as a foal compared to her Sir Wanabi baby who is an absolute teddy bear.

                          I've seen videos of a child riding Sir Wanabi so if he passes that temperament on.. Yea, I can see him being a good choice.

                              I can second some of the suggestions already made, as I know folks with offspring under saddle from Freestyle, Widmark, and Rubignon. They are mostly youngsters - 4-7 or so, but they have good minds and easy going temperaments.

                              I also know several offspring of Rosenthal and Routinier that are kind and willing partners for their AA riders. I also have heard good things about Ironman offspring.

                              We also have several Sure Hit offspring at the barn that are doing well being ridden by AAs and junior riders. And there are others out there moving up the levels with their AA riders (showing in dressage, hunters, and eventing). Sure Hit himself is easy-peasy around the barn - doesn't need a chain, stands quietly right next to mares, never causes a ruckus , and is super reliable to take on trails (he's pretty spook proof).

                                Freedom Z - I would breed to him in an instant - we have a daughter and know of several as well. Very very ammy friendly with tons of potential to do it all and incredible movement and jump.

                                  So I'm guessing you are looking for a hunter type stallion?

                                    Agree with this name, and Freestyle, plus there are Hannovairan lines know for super temperment as well as movement (are you going for dressage or jumping? - OP doesn't say).

                                      If you're looking for a Hunter stallion, Balta'Czar produces extremely ammie-friendly, rideable horses AND consistently puts a fantastic, round engine on his babies. http://jumpstartfarm.com/portfolio/baltaczar-progeny/

                                      He is also very proven as a sire of Hunters, *performance* Hunters, not just line horses. Most of them are being trained and piloted by their ammie owners as well.

                                      ps - to give you an idea of just how prepotent he is, I dare you to find the Appaloosa cross and the Saddlebred cross among the progeny pictures on the link I provided (no cheating by using Google! )
