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.

  • RPSI - Possibly Stupid Question?

    I have 2 mares with foals at their sides that I am seriously considering taking to an RPSI inspection this summer, so I've been reading through the website trying to get a handle on what I need to do. I'm confused about the DNA. The sire of both foals is JC registered, as is one of the mares. My other mare is a total unknown pedigree-wise.
    Do I need to submit DNA samples for both mares and both foals, or just the babies and the unpapered mare? Does the RPSI and the JC share DNA information?

    I'm sorry if it's spelled out on the RPSI site, but I'm making my brain hurt trying to understand what I need to do!

    The parentage has been verified by the JC so you just need to bring the original registration papers and a copy (that they will keep) along with the 5 generation pedigree.

      What about my mare with no papers? Does she need to have her DNA verified before her colt can be inspected?

        The mares AND foals both have to be presented.

        If foal is at side, no DNA needed (at least not last time I went--that may have changed?) Apologies if it's changed since... but DNA was only for yearlings & older. (or, for the one orphan foal who was presented 'at side' of his adopted dam.)

        Your JC mare is eligible for MMB, depending on her score. Your unpapered mare is only eligible for the PreBook, regardless of her score, so the highest the foal can go is Book II. It might only be able to go PreBook if the JC sire is not approved for breeding with RPSI.

        If you can call them, RPSI (in the States) is FABULOUS about talking you through who can do what.

          Ok Thank you so much! I knew the foals would be presented at their dams' sides, but was confused about the DNA. The stallion is approved - he had a filly awarded Silver last year

          PintoPiaffe, I'm sending you a pm
          Edited to add... your box is full! Are you still located in Dedham? We are moving to Prospect (next to Bucksport) this month, and I wanted to pick your brain about vets - I used to use a clinic when I lived in Damariscotta that I wasn't wild about and wanted to get your take on who is up that way.

            Just to add to what PintoPiaffe said...and yes...she's right on only needing DNA if foal isn't at mare's side.
            Make sure you know if the stallion is APPROVED or just RECORDED (not approved). Foals from unapproved stallions still get rated but they get a 1/2 brand and white papers instead of pink (not full papers). If the stallion is fully APPROVED then yes, you foal from JC mare would get pink papers as long as mare is entered in MMB. Unreg mare will be pre mare book so white papers no matter what.

            Hope that helps...call their office...they are very helpful and nice to work with!

              crestline, Thank You! I will call them.

              The stallion never went to an approval, so he must just be recorded not approved, correct?
              So my colt out of my unregistered mare by a recorded but not approved stallion can get nothing more then white papers, right? What does that mean for him down the road if I (it's a big if) decided to breed him? Will his babies be penalized because their father is out of an unregistered mare?
              He is really pretty fancy, and it kills me that I don't have papers for his mother - she's such a nice mare, but came from a dealer with no tattoo/brand/etc.

                If the stallion is not in Book I (fully approved) then both foals are only eligible for a Certificate of Pedigree (white papers) and NOT full registration.

                There are only 3 or 4 TB stallions in Book I. The list of all the stallions are on their website...www.rhpsi.com.

                As an SO, it is very frustrating to me when MO aren't fully informed of the stallion's status. I was at an inspection 2 years and there was a VERY Pissed Off (and IMO rightly so) MO who found out at the inspection that the stallion wasn't approved.

                Foals of unapproved stallions are still graded Bronze, Silver, and Gold at the inspections. Silver is a combined score between 7.0 and 7.9.

                If the foals are fillies, then they would be eligible only for the premare book and their foals would only get COPs (white papers) as well. Colts would not be eligible for approval with RPSI, again any foals would only get COPs. The only registries the stallion might be approved by are the AWS or AWR. You could register the foals with PHR, just to record the pedigrees. I believe that if you nominate the stallion to IJF, IHF, then they now have some kind of registration available to foals...not my thing, but my understanding.

                Hope that helps a little. Do call or email JoAnn and Ernie, they are super to work with .

                  That does help, but it confirms my fears. I had hoped that there was a chance I could build up from the basic registration over the years and generations. But no matter what, I can never produce better then white papers with the two foals from this year.
                  My own stallion whom I purchased last year is also a nice horse, and I'm excited about his bloodlines, but because he won less then 100k on the track, sat in a field breeding a couple racehorse babies until I bought him, and is 15, I wouldn't be able to get him approved either, right?

                  I know registration isn't "everything", but as a new breeder with hopes to create a TB sporthorse program over the years, I want to get started on the right foot, and getting approvals for foals (in my mind) is certainly a good way to start.

                  Hm. Ok. Well, I'll still take the kids from this year to the inspection as white papers would certainly be better then nothing at all, and I would love to see how my JC mare will do, but what a bummer that I can't hope for more then that for the foals of the registered but not approved stallion.

                  Thank you all for being so helpful

                    I just looked at the website. You would think that with this sort of situation they would have in huge red letters that the offspring from the stallions in Book II cannot be fully registered. IMO this is badly handled and if I was a Book I stallion owner or a mare owner, I would not be happy with the way the website presents the stallion roster. Very misleading, especially for someone new to breeding.

                      That is mostly where my confusion came from - the website isn't very clear.

                      So here's a question: If my JC mare is eligible for the MMB (based on score, with neither parent approved by the RPSI), but her filly is only eligible for white papers because her JC sire is registered but not approved because he was never inspected, why would I take the filly now as opposed to waiting for her to be 3 or 4 and JC registered? Wouldn't she be eligible for the MMB at that point? Or would she still only be eligible for white papers because her dam was approved and her sire was not?

                      I'll call them today.

                        If the foal by the JC registered (but not approved) TB Stallion and out of the JC registered TB mare is a filly, you would be better off presenting her as a 3yo for breeding approval.

                        BUT, why do you want to present full TB's for RPSI papers? Maybe RPSI will give them papers - IF the stallion is fully approved Book I, but most WB registries will not give full WB foal papers to full TB foals. They WILL give breeding approval to mares and stallions that meet their criteria.

                        If your aim is to raise full TB sporthorses, why do you want WB papers for them?

                          I was wondering the same thing. Why not JC register them as babies, or PHR for the foal from the unregistered mare, so the pedigree is "documented". Then worry about "breeding approval" when they are adults.

                          RPSI is great to work with, but it is a "Warmblood" registry.

                            And just to be clear, AWS isn't much different that RPSI - they don't give full registration to Tbred mares (they can be nominated, not registered), nor will they give Elite status to a mare with undocumented pedigree. Getting breeding approval requires inspection scores above 74% or performance (3rd level or above or the equivalent in jumping or eventing), and you still aren't given elite status without the pedigree to earn it.

                            For a Tbred sport horse program, I think PHR and Jockey Club are probably the more supportive registries - and if your horses are performing, people will be interested! The Tbred is still a great foundation for the sports, especially jumping and eventing!

                              After reading this thread, if they were mine i would register PHR ( if the sire is even nominated with them)and not worry about the rest... I just hope in your case , that the stallion owner was honest and up front with you and did not mislead u to get you to breed...it happens alot with RPSI

                                If the JC registered mare was live covered by a JC registered TB stallion, then there is NO POINT in taking the foal to RPSI. Get her JC papers, then wait till the filly is three years old and present her to RPSI for mare breeding approval - but only IF you plan to breed her to an approved WARMBLOOD stallion. If your plan is sporthorse pure TBs, then stick with Jockey Club and market to sporthorse people.

                                And I'd take the filly out of the unpapered mare to PHR for registration.

                                  Thank you all for weighing in!!!!
                                  I think I will take my unpapered mare and her baby, and leave the JC filly home until she's older.
                                  My thought process behind wanting to take my TBs to the RPSI inspection is that, down the road, I may want to add something other then TB blood, and I didn't want to "burn any bridges" before I needed to use them, in the case of breeding my TB mare to an approved WB stallion, for instance. BUT now that you've all explained to me that I can take them later in life, I'll do that if the need arises

                                  It is frustrating, at least to me, that there is no registry that focuses on inspecting TB sporthorses. It would be lovely to have some sort of organization focused on them, instead of groups that started out being for TBs, and now accept anything... And I think that the inspection process and resulting approvals are helpful to breeders.

                                  Again, thank you all!
