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!

    He was in the NW - many years ago. He was Dutch - but was never approved - by the NAWPN. At one point he belonged to Kevin Freeman -but was passed around to several owners, including one in Bend. Did some showing in jumpers and was bred to a number of tb mares for hunters. Since he was never approved his offspring are often unregistered and the information and statistics are lacking.

        I'm pretty sure he was by Nimmerdor. I believe he was at my barn not too long ago. I think there are two horses by him there now. As the poster above stated, I believe he was bred to a fair number of Tbs locally and has some nice hunter/jumper types. There was a son of his who was standing in CA. Can't remember his name now, but he's been gelded.

          Can you recall anything about him or maybe ask if someone knows his full pedigree? Is he a nice type and nice character?

                  I believe his last owner was Liz Warren (or Julia Kubicek and Liz Warren). He stood at Julia's place, Farm Hill, in Ridgefield, WA. He was a well-known PNW sire, and is by Nimmerdor. There are a number of his offspring in the area, showing in both hunters and jumpers. I know Julia K could give you information about him and his bloodlines. I'm wracking my brain for his approved son... gosh getting old sucks!

                  His babies all seemed athletic and capable. I know Liz had one that did the First Yrs... Skyking was his name.

                    I had an Akrobaat filly. Easy, laid back, athletic. Very much the Dutch Nimmerdor type in temperament and trainability. The offspring I've seen make great h/j type horses, amateur friendly.

                      He was a really cool horse to watch in the show ring! I've had many friends through the years that have had his babies and they've all been really athletic sporthorses. Seems like the ones that I knew tended towards being a little bit hot (not crazy), but could jump ANYTHING. A friend of mine was recently looking for an Akrobaat baby and couldn't find anything reasonably priced. Definitely not a "well kept secret" around here

                      Someone was just telling me that an acquaintance of ours has her Akrobaat baby up for sale (he's older...in his later teens, I think). He took her through the hunters and eq divisions quite adeptly......he's an awfully nice horse!

                      I certainly wouldn't hesitate to pick one up from his bloodlines.

                        This mare seems quite hot but not crazy. She is VERY forward to the fence. I cant decide whether to try her or not. She is out of a TB mare. This mare is 9.

                          Well, I'm certainly not going to be someone to tell you NOT to try her

                          I have seen a lot of REALLY NICE Akrobaat babies. Nice enough that I would absolutely try her based on her bloodlines alone.

                              akrobaat

                              Akrobaat is a dutch stallion popular in the early 90's. I have a jumper gelding by Ambassador - out of Akrobaat. He is full of heart and the best little jumper. He has done some level 7. (correct spelling AKROBAAT) Also by Nimmedor I believe.

                                If anyone knows the details of Akrobaat babies born in Bend, OR around 2000, can you please PM me? I am trying to piece together a certain horses' history. I am doing this with the mares' best interest in mind. Thanks!

                                        Was Akkrobat / Akrobaat an Olympic silver medal jumper and also a grand prix dressage stallion in Holland?

                                        Is he still alive? If so, who stands him?
