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.

  • Is there a market for anglo arab stallions?

    No, I don't have one

    But I'm curious as to whether there is a market for Angloarab stallions, I know there is someone on this board that breeds AA's.
    I have horse to sell to you. Horse good for riding. Can pull cart. Horse good size. Eats carrots and apples. Likes attention. Move head to music. No like opera! You like you buy.

    In all honesty, not in this country - yet. Seems the Anglo-Arab stallion is WAY more appreciated in Europe.

      There really should be! Especially for some of the wonderful WB mares that we have in North America.

        Even in France where the French Anglo-Arab has a long and successful history, there is a very small market for a AA stallion.
        Because breeders think they are missing raw power and scope.
        But they favor AA mare crossed with powerful SF or WB.

          I completely agree, but alas. Americans have so far not been much willing to accept them.

            I love the refinement and presence they add to the heavier less modern types. I don't think though, the the anglo arabs here have been bred to do the same thing here thoug, and that could be a large part of the factor that we don't see people breeding to the anglos. I have yet to see an anglo arabian in the states, bred in the states, compete at an international level in the show jumpers for instance. Not that they 'couldn't' do it, but they have not been aimed to that end. Take a look at a few of the European AA's... Bonaparte: http://www.hengststation-voelz.de/he...eaa/index.html

            And all of those foundation bloodlines, Furioso II, Zeus, Inschallah, Ramzes

            These have played a vital role in creating the sporthorse we know today. I think there could be a significant market, but it has to be a horse that is in the spotlight and actually doing and producing something.

              While there are "performance" arabs in the USA, they are heavily outnumbered by the 'non-performance' type, which also gets the majority of the press so the performance types are relatively unknown/unrecognized. Hence not a lot of demand. Also not real familiar with Arab rules but I think to show in Arab shows a half-arab has to be at LEAST half-arab, so even within the registry an AA stallion would only be breedable to Arab or AA mares... limiting the market further. (could be wrong about that though, I only read through the rulebook once years ago when someone wanted to breed an Arab mare to my TB stallion).

                In my experience registration is partly an issue. My guy is not Anglo, but is 15/16ths Arab. Even though he is reg'd Arab, he's only technically reg'd "half" Arab, and only foals from a purebred mare can be reg'd. So foals out of any other type of mare must have another venue. They *do* now, RPSI, though I haven't kept him active thanks to the economy... but the reason I haven't, is because that did not get him one single mare. Go figure (granted, I have not advertised him heavily at ALL the past couple years as we've been concentrating on moving up the levels, but I have advertised locally/regionally.)

                Meg Hamilton raved about him and said he's the kind of stallion used in Europe for breed refinement... but Americans just don't seem to want to put the blood on top. And I think that is a huge factor. Many of the OX lines in WBs are Anglo STALLIONS. And for whatever reasons, over here we want to put the WB stallion on the OX or Arab mare... which works somewhat, but historically not as well. Sometimes the old timer sayings have some truth in them.

                Finally, I think size is a factor. While it's coming around a little, the US has a fascination with bigger-is-better. They see Arab in a pedigree and get a little squeamish, not realizing that generally (good) Arab contributes lovely bone. And of course if you're talking Anglo, the hybrid vigour can contribute even more... and by the F2 and F3 (which are fairly rare over here) you have quite a bit of size and predictability... but there's a stigma in much of the sporthorse world regardless...

                Just my opinion and observation from the fringes of Arab X Sporthorse breeding.

                  Actually Anglo Arabs have a different percentage/parentage requirement than half arabians.

                    The French AA are a breed, not just an Arabian/TB cross.

                    I have two kids by Routinier and they have two crosses to Inschallah and one to Zeus.

                    One of them is out of a Ramiro granddaughter so that lines goes back to Ramzes. The other one is out of an imported Trakehner mare so of course she has plenty of ox back in her pedigree.

                    People like AA in a pedigree but it has to be performance proven.

                      Also the AA is preferred a little further back, so an AA stallion gets a whole breeding generation out of the way instead of going Arab to TB as one generation. IF it is a performance stallion, agreed. Hopefully it can jump in style.

                        As has been said already, French AA's are a breed. They are prized for eventing and show jumping. They work wonderfully when crossed on some of the more heavy jumping mares, particulary the older type Selle Francais or Belgium jumping lines. They also have worked very well on Hanoverian mares.

                        They impart super temperaments, make more modern types, and usually make excellent choices for a lighter stallion if you have a heavy bred jumping mare that needs lightening.

                        Half arabs here in the States is another world. These are not the same. But for the moment the Half Arab registry is the only place to market a French AA stallion were it to come to the States. The warmblood breeders here in the States would not use it.

                          Yes, the europeans have long appreciated them. years ago there was a little grey "french anglo-arabian tb" who did pretty well--he was named Inschallah and he was graded into the Oldenburg stud in Germany. One of his sons, Ideal, is still alive on the west coast, i think.
                          (and I have a great grandson of Inschallah.)

                            Not true!! As long as they meet the 25/75 blood parameters, they are registerable with the AA registry here. Baladin d"Oc at Va Tech is a prime example.
                            An Anglo can be bred to a TB, an Arabian or another Anglo - and registered here - as long as the resulting foal meets 25/75.

                              Yes, there is a market!

                              I have an Anglo stallion (Post Exchange) that was used quite a bit for hunter and event offspring. He's a beautiful mover and jumper, and really improved each mare. He is 50/50.

                              Here's a confo photo: http://starstruckfarms.com/Images/pxconformation.jpeg

                              I had another Anglo stallion (Quartermaster) that is deceased but was an event horse frequently used on draft x mares for refinement. He was out of a 50/50 Anglo mare and by Yankee Lad, so was 75% TB.

                              Here he is: http://starstruckfarms.com/Images/Quarter.jpeg

                              They were both bred by Ann McKay, you can see more of her Anglos here:

                              More really nice Anglos bred by Laura Wood can be seen here, including her young 50/50 Anglo stallion Signal Bey.

                                Yes but what people are saying is that you cannot use an AA stallion on a WB mare and have much in the way of registration options.

                                  Baladin is Selle Francais, Hanoverian, Oldenburg and AA. He is 57.9% Arabian and the balance TB.

                                  Correct me if I'm wrong, but I do believe they are accepted by DWB, SWB and Trakehner too.

                                  France also has AAC for those with less than 25% but more than 12.5% Arab (the rest being TB) and more recently AARC which allows an approved Warmblood to be bred to an Anglo.

                                    Of course a cross of a TB onto an Arab mare can go in their half arabian registry here in the states. We know that.

                                    Baladin is an imported French AA stallion. He is not a US cross bred.

                                    So what is your point?

                                      No he is not Selle Francais nor is he Hanoverian nor is he Oldenburg. He is a French AA stallion.

                                      He has been approved as a breeding stallion by several of these other breed programs.

                                      I have already stated that the French AA breed are very competitive in show jumping and more particularly in eventing. They make a nice stallion to put on heavier European jumping mares.

                                      What is your point?

                                        I think the point is pretty obvious. Someone said there were no registration possibilities for a foal by an AA stallion out of a WB mare in this country, but a mare bred to Baladin d'Oc could be registered with any of the named registries if the mare is also approved with them. Same for any AA, whether 1st generation or imported AA IF you meet the requirements for conformation, type, gaits and meet the registries performance requirements. That's true of any stallion of approved bloodlines, not just AA. And Baladin d'Oc has produced some pretty nice foals for those registries!
