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.

  • New Dutch Mare -- Advice, Thoughts, Suggestions, ...pretty please!

    Although I'm mostly a Hanoverian breeder, I could not pass up this mare! Olivia is Keur, has interesting bloodlines, is relatively young (1996 model), and the price was too good to pass up. She is by Anriejetto out of a Corvado/ Capitano dam. Pedigree here: http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/olivia+keur

    Here are a few pictures of her:

    I'm in the process of stallion selection for her. I'm looking to produce a dressage horse suitable for an amateur. I like that she's a big, substantial, old-style horse. I like the jumping ability she has and hope that helps put a strong hind end on her babies. She has a good temperament, loves to jump stadium (not so much cross country) and did well in dressage. She was trained to third level.

    She was bred once, to Iroko, and had a lovely hunter/jumper. Here are some pics of him:

    If she were yours, what/who would be your choice and why?

    Can anyone tell me more about the horses in her pedigree? I read the recent thread about Anriejetto, but, besides Cor de la Bryere, I don't know much about Holsteiners.

    Hano breeders: Do you think I should present her to the AHS?

    How do you pronounce "Anriejetto"?

    Thanks all!

    I dont know a lot about dressage (I'm from the H/J world) but from what I do know, I'm much more impressed by her dressage picture than her jumping picture. While she has a nice expression and square needs she seems to be a flat jumper, without the bascule she would need to be an upper level hunter or jumper. I would stick with your original thought and try to breed a nice dressage horse, athough there are some lines that are successful in both, a la Argentinus.

      I agree that her jumping photo isn't the best ever, but DAMN that baby of hers can jump! He looks like he's got some scope.

        She might have been a fabulous Big Eq horse with her dressage training and particular jumping style. What about Jazz or Ferro for her? In terms of dual talents, Idocus comes to mind (he has produced super hunters and dressage horses) but you might want something more modern. She looks like such a lovely mare!

          I would probably breed her to Johnson or Rousseau or Jazz or ........

          Nice mare - congratulations!

            Indeed, this is a very nice mare. Congratulations on your purchase!

            If you are aiming at producing a modern looking dressage foal, how about Lingh?

              Congrats on your nice new mare! I don't really have any specific suggestions but I will say her baby can definitely JUMP!

              My stallion is a very light modern type and a super mover. He is by Contender so perhaps Contester is similarly light like my boy? I know he has done well in the dressage ring, while still having a versatile pedigree if your baby decides it wants to jump like it's sibling does. Again, I don't know much about Contester specifically but my guy is very light and elegant so something along those lines might help lighten her up and give you what you are looking for.

              Rousseau would be a nice choice. As for Jazz, haven't there been threads about his offspring being more sensitive/hot? I may be way off, but would check that first since you want an ammy temp.

              Congrats again on a great buy!

                I have a Rousseau filly out of my Sandro Hit x Donnerhall mare. I love Rousseau and would breed to him again in a heart beat.

                  Thanks, guys.

                  Keep the stallion suggestions coming! This gives me much to think about for the next few months. I must say I'm also giving Farrington a great deal of thought for her.

                  I'm no jumping expert, but she was top 10 in jumping (tied for 8th nationally in 2003) at her keuring. Unfortunately, that one photo of her jumping is all I've got.

                    She is a bit flat in that one photo but tidy with her knees - and just based on that one pic might be phenomenal as a jumper or eq horse but did not scream hunter to me, necessarily. But as you said it is only one pic. I really like the mare, though. She has a kind eye and you can tell she is well bred.

                        You CAN breed to a jumper and get a great horse for dressage...so look for a stallion registered in her current breed registery (KwPN?) that is lighter in body (more modern) and throws great temperment.

                        Farrington is great for all that (not sure about the modern type but he throws great temperment). Flemmingh is also good for the modern type and temperment plus throws jumping and dressage talent.

                        KwPN accept Holsteiner (AHHA) bloodlines (great for jumping, not as well known for dressage), so I wouldn't try to get mare accepted into AHHA unless she already is in their "A" book.

                          The mare is actually from the Holsteiner stamm 18A2 so her mare line is holsteiner. Her dam Calliope has a full sister named Tabina. Look at paardenfokken to see her lineage

                            FYI hansiska here is your new mare's pedigree on a much more reliable website that has a lot more tools to play with! http://www.paardenfokken.nl/pedigree.php?horseid=493205 If you look under database-> breeding tools there is a virtual mating feature so you can see the pedigrees of all the babies you could make with whatever stallions

                            If you explore mor into her dam's line her dam has a half-sister named Vabima that produced the stallion Edelmann by Exorbitant xx, and is second dam to the stallions Perfectum (by Pronto) and Acardi (by Acord II).

                              Thanks! I actually went to see Farrington this weekend at Majestic Gaits. He looked great. I loved the movement, too. I saw some Flemmingh horses there too and they were fantastic, but I think Kathy said there's no Flemmingh semen left.

                              Thanks for that suggestion ponygirl! It was cool to find the whole dam line laid out like that.
