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.

  • Reigh Count/Count Fleet in TB Sport Horses ?

    I've been coming across this line a lot lately in TB sport horses, and it's starting to be something that I look for.

    But I'm not sure why.

    Do any CoTHers have any hard information on this line in TB sport horses? What they have done and what disciplines they are good for? I know it's an old line and probably dead except through mares, but what about them in the "glory days of the TB" back before the WBs took over?

    I spoke to Judy Wardrope (pedigree research guru) a few months ago and I recall her mentioning Count Fleet as a progenitor of successful jumpers. She didn't say through which lines/ horses. But I know this stuck in my mind since my TB broodmare is linebred with 2 crosses to Count Fleet in the 5th & 6th.

      One name that has stuck as a sire is One Count.

        Well, I have an older mare (1989) edition who has Count Fleet in her damline (through her granddam's sireline). This mare was/is a good jumper and had a lot of scope. When I bought her she was doing some 4 foot jumper classes with her owner and I had her jumping four foot nine oxers in prep for her AHS mare performance test (which she passed).

        But the mare also has Private Account(Damascus), Native Dancer, Blue Larkspur, Bull Dog (Teddy), so it is hard to say where the jumping talent came from. She is super rideable and did well at dressage and scored an 8 by the German inspectors for rideability. I have heard some others on this board say that Private Account horses are known for that FWIW.

          Country Countess, dam of Number One Spy (international Show Jumper), is a daughter of One Count.

          I'm still looking.

            Count fleet appears in the pedigrees of several modern TB sires who have successful sport horse offspring. But it is so far back as to be meaningless.

            You might find some Reign Count horses through Better Bee (who is Witty Boy's damsire).

              A Count Fleet daughter bred to Nasrullah produced Fleet Nasrullah....seems like that might be another direction to look for sport results?

              I'm not much help, I know. I do have a linebred Nasrullah mare with Count Fleet in there - a huge stout old girl, who I acquired late in life and bred to my Caro son. Resulting yearling filly is a strapping big gray thing who can hop out of any pasture at will. She'll be a fun one!

                This is a mare that I bred, but have since sold. Spectacular Gal She has Fleet Nasrullah/Count Fleet and a ton of others that you all talk about all the time. I have a daughter of hers that I bred to a good jumper/FEI dressage stallion and she is now in competition and can jump the moon. Spectacular Bid is her grandsire, and he is the sire of Mytens and Mighty Magic.

                  Since Count Fleet is the grand sire of Prince John there's no wonder he turns up here and there in top class racing TB:s.

                  Even so I believe him to be one of those horses that will turn up more and more in sport horses when we get more and more of mares holding the blood lines of Mr Prospector and Alleged and such in to the sport horse breeding area.

                  One really good horse descending from the sire lines of Count Fleet is the showjumper Roven. http://www.team-nijhof.nl/site/html_...n/rovenxx.html

                      A friend of mine had an APHA mare with Count Fleet in the pedigree. She evented through Prelim and then showed in dressage through 4th Level before becoming a broodmare. She had two foals by a Contender son and then was used primarily as a lesson horse until succumbing at age 18 to Cushings. Both her foals sold to Amateur owners and haven’t been shown much, but their owners have a lot of fun with them.

                        Flirting Cove, dam of my babies, has Count Fleet in her pedigree.

                          The really line bred ones from what I have seen have been fantastic movers and jumpers and are showing up in a lot of warmblood pedigrees.

                            As you can see, Arbee has Count Fleet on both sides. I started to ride him when he was 10 yrs old and he came with a lot af baggage. After we sorted everything out, he showed TONS of talent for eventing. No jump was too hard for him. Rarely out of the top three in dressage too (scores in the low 20's). Very smart horse which did sometimes get in the way. Also he is the kindest horse I have even known.

                            I retired him when he was 20 or 21 only due to a pasture injury that later caused a hock issue. He was schooling 3rd level at that time and played with paiffe and passage. I am sort of a wimp with jumping so we didn't go past training level but we did school the prelim stuff at USET.

                            I wish I had him from the time he was a young horse. Now he just hangs out with his girlfriend and donkey.
