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.

  • Hunter stallions that can produce jumpers?

    Interested in hearing about hunter stallions, here in N. America, that you think could produce an upper level jumper (knowing that the dam is critical, as well). I have a young jumper mare that I'm thinking about breeding, but am interested in finding a stallion who is quiet and stylish, w/out sacrificing jumping ability. I know that to get a specific match you would want to look at her confo. and pedigree, but right now I'm trying to come up with as big a list as I can get, so leaving out specifics for now. I'm kind of leaning towards Cunningham, as certainly he can jump, and his pedigree is very, very nice for producing jumpers. Who else?

    Cunningham, for sure, and Willemoes.
    We have one of each coming in 2010 and, while the Willemoes was bred to be a jumper, I expect that it will be talented either way. Depends on the mare, as you say.

        If your goal is to get jump with the hunter temperament, I think that you might want to take a look at Valentino Z. He's a Darco son and has fantastic jumping ability, but he also has a terrific temperament and is easy enough for an amateur to ride. He has a lovely, rhythmic canter and just lopes around courses.

        The Darco bloodline has produced nice hunters - Valentino's full brother is a hunter and Magic Darco went from the jumper ring to the hunter ring quite successfully. In fact, Magic Darco might be another good choice if the mare is a good candidate for frozen.

            I beg to differ wasn't Rio Grande a jumper stallion who produced hunters ( he competed for our Canadian Showjumping team) ?
            Having Raffaello, who is also by Raphael , same Hanoverian R and D line nick that produced Radiator who won the million dollar CN class with Rene Tebel here at Spruce Meadows . Our stallion had the opportunity to show in the hunters and yet was approved as a jumping stallion selected for the Hanoverian Jumper Breeding Program

            In 2000 Henk Bouwman commented on his personal picks for jumper talent for all of the Hanoverian, Holsteiner, Trakehner, Oldenberg and Westfalian keurings for 1999 in Zangersheides Z Magazine , Raffaello is among those listed as one of his personal favourites.

            "And just the odd jumping star was fit for the show of champions. To mention a few (my personal) favourites...No.69 (Raffaello) by Raphael, dams sire Foxhunter- Don Juan...”

              Hillside, I know you said NA...but since I've seen one of his offspring do it with my own eyes and I think he fits your bill, and is available frozen:

                Richard, a KWPN stallion newly approved with the BWP.

                He was shown successfully in both the hunter ring and in Grand Prix jumpers. He is producing both hunter and jumper type foals.

                He stands 17 hh and is flashy -- black, 3 white socks and blaze.

                He is standing in Florida. www.theequineathlete.net

                  I'd actually look more towards a jumper stallion that can produce hunters, rather than the opposite. IMO, finding a GOOD jumper is harder than finding a good hunter. Look for stylish jumping stallion..

                  Pablo comes to mind, he can jump, his offspring can typically jump, and many are very stylish over fences.

                  Landfriese II is another one...

                  What about Sir Caletto? Wasn't he a fairly successful jumper before becoming a hunter? I could be wrong about that...

                    I would second Sir Caletto - here is one of his "jumper" breds at Spruce Meadows:

                      While he's produced quite a few top hunters, it also appears he's produced some higher level jumpers as well.

                        Actually Rio showed in the dressage ring before moving to the jumpers ... I dont believe he ever competed in the hunters at all but yes - his offspring have done quite well in that discipline

                        Wasnt Cabardino a hunter stallion before making the move to the jumper ring?

                          Rio did show very briefly in the hunter ring as a youngster.

                            First one that came to mind was Cunningham. Great jumping pedigree there. I would also agree that Sir Caletto and Rio Grande would fit the bill.

                            I would be very careful if you breed a jumper type mare to a jumper type stallion and expect to get something that would suit the hunter ring as some have suggested.

                            I have used a few more jumper type stallions in our program to produce hunters, but that is always with a very good moving and good minded mare that jumps with a classic hunter style.

                              Maybe one of The Oaks' stallions? Challenger has had a few nice hunters who have gone on to upper levels in jumpers. A gelding by Challenger out of my mare's TB dam did amazingly well as a hunter as a young horse before moving to the jumpers, where he was successful at Level 8 before he was sold to a 16 year old who's doing 1.35m with him. There's also a full brother who took the same path and is doing mid-level jumpers now with an ammy.

                              I think Rabino would be an awesome choice for a dual-purpose foal, too. He's my current "crush." He's sired some super hunters as well as an Olympic show jumper. Of course he's not in the US though.

                                I think I wasn't as clear as I could have been in my initial post. I AM looking to produce a jumper, but I'm investigating hunter stallions b/c I think it is a good place to look for improvement in the temperament area. I am very familiar with jumper stallions, and do have some in mind, but I wanted to think "outside the box" a bit, and hunter stallions are not my area of expertise. This particular filly is extremely athletic, superb free-jumping form (not jumping under saddle yet), and has a good work ethic. However, she is sensitive, a bit hot and has a big spook. I thought investigating some hunter stallions, in addition to jumper stallions, may help me find a bit quieter stallion that will not sacrifice the jump. Her temperament and personality are fine for me, but the foal will be for sale and I don't want anything hotter/more reactive than the mare. It will be her only foal for a long time (more than likely)as she is being focused on a sport career.

                                  It is so going to depend on the mare...

                                  Sir Calleto is supposed to have an outrageous jump and produce hunters (particularly on a dam with the movement). I like him. I think there are whole threads devoted to him and his offspring...

                                  I'm breeding to Landfriese II for mind first and then hunter prospect that should be able to do dressage for me too, but he has GP jumper offspring. You should get his video--I wish it was on the website.

                                  I think Apiro (Argentinius) should be able to do this and he hasn't been mentioned. It will be interesting to see when his offspring get older. I've been told he's a 2 in temperment. Love Landwerder from Silver Creek too. He and Landfriese have the same sire, Landadel, and the L line is supposed to be good minded generally, but obviously jump well. And the fact that they often excel in dressage is nice too.

                                  I think the other suggestions are good too. Lordanos also goes back to Ladykiller/L line (although not a Landadel).

                                  Lots of good stallions mentioned above by others. Some of these stallions are very different in type, so again it will depend on the mare.

                                    How about Federalist? He is by For Pleasure, a 2 time Olympic Gold Medalist. Federalist (I believe he was shown as Faberge) was extremely competitve in the jumper ring.
                                    He has had some very successful hunter and jumper offspring.

                                      You should take a look at our stallion Cabalito. He has done the hunters as well as the jumpers and was doing the jumpers most recently with a very young junior. He has an outstanding temperment and beautiful flowing gaits.
