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!

  • Need suggestions for a mare, please!

    I have a friend hoping to breed her mare next year and told her I would ask around for some opinions. Sorry I don't have a picture! She is by Concorde out of a mare by Pericles xx.
    Mare did up to 1.45 in Europe and did the 1.30 and Level 7 stuff over here before being sold to my friend. She's a dark bay with a sock, Dutch, 16.1 and more on the refined side. Oh and she is HOT. She would like a stallion with a bit more bone and a good mind in hopes of producing a jumper type foal.
    These are the stallions she has been considering.

    Mine is very laid back and quiet, the easiest foal I have ever had, hopefully he'll stay this way once mature.
    His mother is an average WB mare by Idocus,out of an Anglo TK mother (so sharing both the Voltaire and the XX in the pedigree as your friend's), and my colt has much more bone, size and depth than she does.

      The Darco stallion crosses with Concordes seem to be a hit.
      And, well you dont get a more proven jump than a Darco!!

        Ironman has proven himself over and over at throwing good temperaments and cooling down hot mares. He will add bone, a tremendous amount of scope, a beautiful jump. He usually throws his head or part of it, his engine, longer necks and topline.

          A few that come to mind: Cunningham, Baron Van Gogh, Torino, Amaretto D'Arco, Orlando.

          Nimmerdor nicks well with Voltaire blood. So does Ramiro. I'd definitely be curious about the Capitol blood for her.

            In another thread someone posted that Parco has more rideability than Darco does so I'm wondering if he would be a nice match. Or what about Lupicor?

              You might consider Albarez. He's a new Holsteiner stallion, I have a filly by him. He's lovely, great mind, great scope and moving up fast in the jumper ring.

              He's got some new videos too... on youtube. Just search his name on there..

              He's got great lines and a super mind.

                Rsing Star has a handsome Darco son valentino Z, that was ridden by an amateur, after jumping up to 1.45-1.5m in Europe-seems like he might offer both Darco blood and rideabilty.

                  How about Bandaras at Dreamscape Farm in Canada? He is incredibly well bred and a talented individual. Very nice young stallion.

                    Navarone puts on the best of characters/temperaments/trainability and super super jump! Puts on good bone on the offspring too much like him. Super pretty too with a nice head, long neck and good muscling. He is available fresh semen and you can stay with the KWPN registry.

                    Darco's are not known to be easiest for trainability. He will put on super jumping and big bone. We have frozen from his son Douglas here. Best with a mare with good character.

                        I was also going to suggest RisingStarFarm's Darco son Valentino Z.

                        You should also take a look at Cielo B. Jumper with bred Darco, Jus D'Pomme and Ahorn lines.

                        He has nice big bone and passes on his Lovely, Lovely temperament.

                            Totally agree about the Darco trainability issue, but I know Amaretto D'Arco has a super temperament and is proving himself in the bigger GPs, both here and in Europe (the stallion travel with "his" teddy bear ). Douglas would be very interesting since he'd also add the Capitol blood.

                              I'd like to chime in about Valentino Z. By Darco, out of a Feo mare (Wendekreis), with French blood on the bottom. Super temperament and the easiest horse I've ever sat on! He did some big jumps in Europe - was an ammy's Level 7 horse in the US and will now be my return to the jumper ring.

                                Another very nice stallion is Magic Darco. He showed in Europe with Nick Skelton until his accident... He's now in the US showing in the working hunters but the boy has scope for the big fences.

                                  Tap2Tango: Is your friend breeding for the jumper ring or the hunter ring? I know your original post says jumper, but all of her stallion selections are hunter-type stallions??

                                      I noticed that too with all her choices!! She would like a jumper foal though. So I did ask her the other day if she would consider other stallions than the ones in the original post; which she said yes. So far Valentino Z does seem like a hit. I will have her mention him to our trainer.

                                        I am another vote for Valentino Z.... He has a couple lovely foals in California and I think will have a nice crop on the ground in 2010. Ronda ( his owner) is having a blast riding him and I believe she has given a few lucky AA riders a test drive!
