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.

  • Multi-purpose stallions

    Can anyone recommend some dual purpose jumper/dressage stallions? I am not looking to produce a hunter, definitely want more of a dressage mover, but with the ability to jump as well. The pedigree of the mare in question is here http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/eirianna The mare already has a lot of jumping talent and lots of knee action when she moves and a very uphill neck. I would like to see a shorter back and more uphill build (she is croup high). She also has what I consider a "jumper" hind end with a straighter hind leg. Would like to see her have more elastic movement and more hock action, without losing the jumping ability. Also prefer a stallion know for throwing more mellow babies. Frozen semen or fresh chilled available in Canada would be good. I've been thinking of Le Primeur or Banderas. Any other ideas?

    I'm not commenting on the ones you mentioned, but would encourage you to also look at Edgar's stallions. Rainbowequus.com I have nothing but wonderful things to say about how they handled my breeding needs this summer.

    There are other SO on this board who also have dual purpose stallions. I'm sure you will get lots of ideas.

    You should post pictures (I just love to look at horses).

      Look at Balta'czar www.jumpstartfarm.com
      He's done hunters, jumpers, and dressage as have his babies. He also mellows a hot mare, strengthens the back, has fantastic motility fresh and frozen, and is just an awesome horse in general. Oh and he can't throw a chestnut, and he throws tons of chrome- just a bonus, if your into that type of thing.
      Saret Tola , his owner, stands a bunch of stallions, is very good at collection and knowlageable about bloodlines. If she doesn't think a cross will work, she'll tell you up front what would work better and she'll recomend a stallion that will cross well, even if it's not one of hers.
      Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most...now where did I put those marbles...

          Pablo shortened the back on one of my mares.

          Offspring is Pablo's Dylano on warmbloods-for-sale.

          A couple conformation photos there.

          I've been hearing that a lot of people are liking the Pablos for the hunter ring.

          My Dylano is flat kneed so he could go there easily.

          Saret sure has added a lot of stallions to her roster.

            Oakstable, Your Pablo gelding is super cute! I actually inquired about him a while ago when I was looking for a young prospect. The mare in question on this thread is the horse I ended up getting.
            I should mention that I am really trying to stay away from stallions that throw hunter type movement. This mare has a lot of high knee action and I would like to preserve that.

              He is a doll. Doing really well now in limited training.

              I also have a Pablo filly out of a DIFFERENT mare who is a totally different mover.

              I think Dylano got more of his mother's flat kneed movement. Very long stride.

              I have a video clip finally to show him.

                I do like Le Primeur for a "dual purpose" stallion.

                Also, Fabriano. Maybe check out Escudo or Espri.

                  I desire the same type of stallion for my mare, and I have heard very good things about Oskar II's foals.

                      Boy, do I see Eastern Ruler when I look at her. In addition to Le Primeur, another Cdn based stallion that will give dual talent, and refinement and good temperament, is Sir Wanabi. Cleaning up in hunters now, he also did well at basic dressage. Very handsome black stallion, good SPT scores.

                          Another thought: Starlight (frozen). He is Sandro Hit / Cordeur / Argentinus - so loaded with jumping sires in the pedigree - - jumping sires with movement. He will throw large, I believe, so that may be a consideration.

                            Look at Alcatraz. He produces jumpers, dressage and even a few hunters.

                              Another one to look at might be Wamberto. He is young and I believe this year is his first for foals on the ground but his bloodlines are a blend of dressage and jumpers. We actually have a filly by him and are very pleased.

                                I wish Spruce Meadows had offspring photos up for Le Primeur.

                                  Well, just a plug for Pablo again; and in my case, he did NOT throw hunter movement. On the contrary, the movement has knee and is quite similar to both Pablo's and the dam's movement

                                  Here are some still photos taken as a 2 year old (sorry, from a video). If you want to see a video of her as a foal, look at the base of my homepage (memorial to her mother Ghlycerine); it has footage of the foal at the end. I don't have any current video uploaded.

                                      Well, you know how I feel about Le Primeur but at the same time, the stallion will likely not throw his own type, but will let the mare come through. You will likely keep the round movement and excellent athleticism, as he does appear to throw that. He himself is actually quite rectangular in frame, very much a jumper looking stallion.

                                      However, he does have ideal angles behind, beautiful hind end! Just depends wether or not he throws it. Are you thinking of this year? I have heard his book is closed, but I am not sure?

                                      As for frozen, what about a stallion like Contendro 1? How important is height? He tends to make really rubbery moving offspring with round movement and compact , smaller types. He is supposed to cross well on longer framed, tall mares. He throws beautiful types!

                                      Chequille Z may also suit, or perhaps Conteur from Celle. All from the same , very dual talented Calypso line ...very much know for round movement and excellent type. I actually think I would go Holsteiner with your mare.

                                        How about the SF stallion, Juan Valdez Carolina ? www.juanvaldezcar.com. He is performing at the Grand Prix level in dressage. He also has several 1/2 siblings (same mare) competing in Prix St. George and several who are jumpers.

                                        I have one of his 1/2 sisters (same dam) who is my daughter's jumper but she has also shown her through 2nd level dressage. This is a link to some pictures of my mare: http://s608.photobucket.com/albums/t...tie%20D%20Car/
