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!

  • Trakehner stallion Apache

    Anyone here have opinions and information about him? Results? Foals? Movement?

    I just saw his blurb on the ATA Auction site, and he looks as if he'd be a perfect match conformationally for a mare I know. They are very similar in a lot of ways, but from the one photo that I saw he'd improve her in small things.

    I've just googled him, and he is an elite level dressage horse, so his movement has to be superior. The ATA site doesn't have information on many of his get.

    He lives not too far from me now, but I'll be honest I've not seen him in person. His owner is pretty easy to talk to though. He is pretty much retired, very well bred and has "done it" as you have found out. He is older so even if I saw him in person it prob wouldn't be the same movement that he had when he was younger/competing. Ruth Anne has several of his foals (his owner) and can point you to some of the ones that he has bred.

    He does have some of his offspring listed on the ATA site that have a competition career : http://americantrakehner.com/Stallions/Apache.asp Click on the names in blue and you can see what they have done (and what has been reported to the ATA).

    I have heard that he is very sweet and is a kind horse from those that have seen him recently. I love the bloodlines for sport and he is one of the few greys I'd consider breeding to (and if you knew me personally you'd know how huge of a statement that is as I really don't want greys LOL).

      I've always liked this horse - lovely horse, outstanding performance record, and excellent Trakehner pedigree. I don't have it in front of me, but if I remember correctly his dam is Abiza, who was imported in foal carrying Abdullah.
      I don't know any thing more about him however, just that he has always caught my eye.

        Here is his owner's website... http://www.jointventurefarm.com/ with more info about him. :-) There is info about his pedigree to a certain extent.

        Apache is by Merkur *E* and out of Alouette (I may have those names spelled wrong). Alouette is by Tannenberg out of Abiza who is Abdullah's dam.

        Also looked him up and it looks like he only has around 39 registered (with the ATA) offspring.

          Alouette *E*

          Since IMO the better the mare, the better the offspring, a bit about Apache *Pb*'s dam, the Elite mare Alouette *E*.

          As Anissa mentioned, Alouette is out of the elite mare Abiza *E* - which alone is a HUGE recommendation - who earned her own elite title by producing 14 offspring, including 2 very good approved sons, Apache *Pb* and Asher (2001 winner of the Governor General's AND Lieutenant Governer's Cup at the Royal Winter Fair).

          The Apache *Pb* son Hayden GS *Pb* has a very good record in SoCal dressage thru 3rd level.

            I once had a nice long visit and conversation with Charlotte Schickedanz at her Galten Farms. We talked about Apache, her breeding program, and saw a couple of the stallions. We had had some interest in Apacke back in 2002. I got his video from Jodie Cressman (Hilda Gurney), who owns Lancelot (Leonidas), etc. I probably still have that video around here somewhere. The movement was okay. What does 'elite level dressage' mean? The movement was nothing like Leonidas'.

            Why am I thinking that Darren Chia Chia did eventing with him? I swore he was the rider.

              Darren may have completed Apache's eventing for his performance requirements. Darren has always rode a lot of TKs and I know that he took a bunch of stallions through the performance portion. At the inspection in Jax a couple of years ago it seems that he and Ruthanne (Apache's current owner) talked about him when he rode him or something.

              Apache received his *Pb* (Performance Bronze) designation for dressage scores. He did reach GP I think so I'm not sure why he hasn't gotten a higher performance designation. Last I heard, Ruthanne was trying to dig into if he is elig for anything higher.

              Here is the link for the various requirements for the Exceptional Horse requirements (both Elite status and the various performance designations).

              http://www.americantrakehner.com/Awa...quirements.htm

              Mares and stallions can be designated Elite and it is through producing exceptional offspring. It can be horses that achieve upper levels in sport (successfully), it can be approved stallions, it can be Model Mares etc - they get points for each type of thing, achieve enough points and the horse can be designated Elite. I have an Elite Mare as she has produced two approved sons. Abiza is Elite as she produced FOUR approved sons (I don't think there is another mare in the ATA that has done that) and she is the granddam of Apache. Abiza's daughter produced TWO approved sons and is Elite....

              I haven't seen Apache in person, but apparently he got the job done in sport and has produced horses that are getting the job done in sport (Hayden being a great example of that) regardless of how great a mover he was. The pedigree is stacked for athleticism.

                Actually, Palma Nigra also produced 4 approved sons, the full brothers: Prince of Prussia, Prinz Habicht, Platinum v Rappenhof and Patras v Rappenhof and at least one Model mare.

                The requirements for Elite mare status below:

                2. Elite Mare: *E*

                Awarded to those mares which produce outstanding offspring. Minimum requirements are:

                •two sons approved as ATA Breeding Stallions; or
                •three ATA registered offspring meeting the requirements for an *E*, *M*, or *P* mare; or
                •one son approved as an ATA Breeding Stallion and one *E* daughter; or
                •one son approved as an ATA Breeding Stallion and two ATA registered offspring meeting the performance requirements for an *M* or *P* mare; or
                •by independent consideration.

                  Thanks Kim, always forget about Palma Nigra... not sure why and not intentional by any means!

                    I have the Alouette daughter Ada GS. She is a fantabulous mare, and also the dam of the ATA approved stallion Arapaho (now gelded, from what I understand). I purchased Ada from Charlotte a few years ago, in foal to Hilton GS. The colt is very nice, and she has had 2 more Anglo-Trakehner foals for me...both also very nice. She is just one of "those" mares. Priceless.

                    I have considered Apache for some of my other mares and Ruthanne is very, very easy to talk to.
