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.

  • Cabalito lifetime approved with ISR/Oldenburg today.

    Today, Eckhardt Brysch and Helmut Schrant, representing ISR/Oldenburg, stopped in Arizona on their way to the 70 day test, to look at two previously performance tested stallions in Arizona Cabalito and Galatois. Both Stallions received their lifetime breeding license.

    I am not too sure about how the scoring worked with the stallions, having only been on the mare and foal end before. Once I got home and had a chance to look up previous scores for stallions, I am positively thrilled with the scores that Cabalito earned. His highest marks were for type, frame and topline as well as breed/sex type. He got consistantly high scores for his gaits, athletic ability and balance. He did not jump as he is recovering from an injury and had previously passed his 11 month stallion test in Germany. Based on his scores he qualified for a star for his performance test.

    All of this was great but the real high point was loading Cabi up, taking him to a new place, putting his tack on and putting him to work in an arena he'd never seen before and having him behave like a complete gentleman. We were all very proud of him. This would not have been possible without the hard work of his previous owners and trainers, Anne Hedge at White Hedge Farm and her trainers and the trainers at Marsh Pond Farm.

    Last but not least, when we acquired Cabalito we discussed several different options for registration. He was already approved with Hanoverian and GOV. When I spoke with ISR/Oldenburg they were by far the most helpful when we had questions before getting him and then directing us to the right people and places. After that interaction, we elected to go with them, even though we would have significantly less fees staying with GOV. This decision was further validated when they managed to get their stallion inspectors, one from straight from Germany one from Chicago to come and inspect two stallions in Arizona, so that we could guarantee to mare owners that the stallions were fully approved. So often these days, what is lacking is putting the customer first. I just want to thank everyone at ISR/Oldenburg who had a hand in assisting to make today happen. Thank you!

      Congrats, Lisa! Thank you to Darkhorse Farm for allowing me to come watch the inspection today. The boys were fantastic- 2 great new options in AZ! Cabalito has always been one of my favorites, since I went to see him at Whitehedge Farm many years ago. Anne became a friend, and I've got 3 Cabby babies now under saddle in my barn. They have fabulous ammy brains, and are great movers and jumpers. I'll definitely breed to him again, especially now that he's in my backyard! Anne will be thrilled to hear how good he looks- his charisma, movement, and presence are as impressive now as they were when I first met him. This is a first-class stallion!

          Congratulations! I know Cabalito from his time with Anne here in Texas. He is a wonderful stallion and quite the gentleman. The babies that I have seen have had great minds, are lovely movers and athletic!

                  Congrats Lisa on his new approval! I am so very proud of him and all his accomplishments, but most of all I treasure the time that I got to spend with him and be a part of his everyday life and career. A best friend of a horse if I ever had one!

                  I am very happy to hear that he is settling in well, and is in a home where he is truly appreciated and loved. He is a well kept secret in the hunter breeding world I have raised, started and sold 8 foal crops of his and they are the easiest and most predictable horses I have ever worked with. All their new owners just rave about them, and it will be exciting to get more on the ground in the next few years! My only regret is not keeping a few more of them around to play with myself- but I have 2 coming next year out of very nice mares to look forward to- plus one coming 3 yr old colt of his that so far has not been gelded yet and looks to be pretty special!

                  I still have lots of offspring pictures on my website if anyone wants to look at more of them, plus I would be happy to talk to anyone that wants help in deciding if their mare is a good match for him!

                    Congrats!!! He is a really nice stallion, I am happy to see that he is back on the scene!!

                      Thank you for your kind words and help, it has been very appreciated! It is obvious that someone really cared for Cabi, he knows his place (as any stallion should), yet is still very affectionate. He has an amazing ability to compartmentalize. When it's work, it is all work. I know the amount of time and effort that had to be put into him to make him this way and it's staggering! And this doesn't even speak to his riding/jumping training! Cabi is an amazing horse and I feel much the same way you do about him, that we are lucky that he is gracing us with his presence. He is a very special boy. I will make sure he gets a carrot from you! Thank you for your help and support.
