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.

  • Rohdiamant Mare- Dressage Stallion needed

    I am hoping for some ideas, I just can't make a decision, and I'm not usually one posting this sort of thing.

    Mare details:
    She is Oldenburg
    16.2 Hands, not old fashioned, but not modern. Good bone and body. IMO she needs to be more compact with a stronger back and loin connection. Temperament is excellent, she is very sane. Legs are correct. Movement is flatter, preference would be for good hindend engagement, and more activity/expression overall.
    Pedigree: Rohdiamant- Akzent II - Traumdeuter, so no R lines please.
    Last foal was in 08, from frozen, so I think she's a candidate for either fresh or frozen. My luck with frozen sucks, but its not out of the question.
    Open to all registries.

    Public and private suggestions welcomed, I need to decide soon!!
    Thank you!

    Tantris?

    http://www.turningpointfarm.net/Tantris.htm

    He is very compact.


    If you want to go in a totally different direction, you could also consider Noble Champion.

    http://horsesunlimited.us/Stallion.asp

    He has some get that are dressage horses now. Quite spectacular.

      Pablo. I had a Pablo colt in '06 that had a super loin connection, great bone and shortened up the mare a tad. He doesn't throw knee action but tons of suspension. Great jump to the canter too! AND Edgar is super to work with

        My family and I own a Rohdiamont-Akzent II-Wenzel I mare (so similar breeding to your girl!) and two years ago she had an absolutely fabulous Don Frederico foal. The colt has an amazing walk, trot, and canter and his temperment is to DIE for

        The inspectors at his foal inspection had nothing bad to say about him at all, and said that he was a definite improvement over the mare, and I agree!


        Good luck in your search!

          Wow, love the bloodlines!!! Super.

          I would definately try to line bred on the Akzent.

          I agree if you want better hind end and shoulder freedom, Don Frederico would be a good choice. We are going to use him on our Rosentau x double A line mare.
          De Niro would be interesting too with the Akzent there, but then with D lines you are probably not going to get a compact horse.

          Something from the Quattro line would be neet, lots of movement, short coupled dual purpose horses. Quarterline looks interesting, plus he himself is linebred in Akzent. He is a new one though so not so sure if that interests you. Quaterback may be suitable as well, for what you are wanting.

            Dampezzo in Canada is by Don Frederico.
            Dam line is Lauries Crusador xx /Weltmeyer.

            He has two crosses to Absatz in the bottom line.

            I don't know at one point more Absatz could be a problem.

            I have a De Laurentis filly with four crosses to the A line in back.

            I do like Dampezzo's pedigree, tho. Owner is going to a show this weekend and trying for new video.

              Some great ideas, thank you! Quarterline looks really interesting! Great mareline there!

              Tantris also is interesting, would be doubling on the Traumdeuter and the A line. I did get to see him in person, and really liked him. Hmm.

                Any thoughts on using a S line? Stedinger was one that came to mind.

                Here is a link to a photo of her.
                http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...&id=1386800520

                She's had a couple D line foals, and her full sister produced Deveraux (2007 BuCha winner) when bred to De Niro, so I was definitely looking into De Niro and sons.
                De Luxe is a De Niro son with the A in the damline as well, but I"m not sure if I'd get a very substantial foal from the breeding.

                      What about Starlight? He is very lovely in person (saw him win GC at DAD) and has Argentinus on the damline (to compliment the Akzent II). He is knocking on GP right now at 8 or 9 years old and has been competing very well at PSG and I-1.

                      I was really excited about breeding to him, but lost my foal.

                      He is very uphill built and the foals I have seen so far are on the more refined side (although he is a more substantial Sandro Hit son than many SH sons)

                          Hi Kris,
                          My Starlight filly is, as you described, very uphill - and though I would not call her "refined" (mare is big-boned), she is lighter than a Landkonig the same mare delivered a few years ago (very large!! but a really honey).
                          Great temperament on the foal, tall, extremely athletic and wonderful angles / conformation (conformation a definite improvement on the mare). Though never advertised "For Sale", she went quickly to a determined buyer who saw upper-level potential. Here she is, at 2 weeks, torn between the desire to graze - and the need to "move". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T62qpOhK0cc

                            Love the new video Kathleen. She is just super (and now I am sad again as I have to wait on my mare who lost her Starlight. She may not be breedable this year (anovulatory follicle and uterine infection).

                            I guess I should have clarified what I meant by refined. Since Starlight is much larger bodied than many SH sons, you and I had a discussion about "how" he would throw offspring (ie, more like Cordeur/Argentinus vs SH). I still think that based on your filly and others, the SH side comes through and they are not as big and "old-type" like Cordeur and Argentinus. I guess that is what I meant - more modern than stallions in the damline of Starlight.

                                She may need to talk to Rick. Last I talked to him, Starlight was mostly going to be offered frozen. Maybe fresh if the compeition schedule fit in, depending. Just FYI. LOVE Rick btw! Super easy to deal with!

                                    I agree with LaNet on Where's Waldo.

                                    Despite the choice of name, the stallion looks very impressive. Would be interesting to see what he is producing.

                                        Some of those stallions you mentioned are a bit long-backed themselves, so probably not an ideal choice for a mare that needs to be more compact. Also, with the Sandro Hit line, you run the risk of not getting a super hindleg for engagement. What about Wolkentanz II for this mare?
