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.

  • Warmblood/ Thoroughbred Stallion Suggestions for QH

    I would love some stallion suggestions for Warmblood or Warmblood/TB stallions that cross well with Quarter horse mares. Breeding for a jumper/eventer. Mare is proven at both.

    Thanks for any suggestions!

    I've found that Trakehners nick very nicely with QH. I actually personally know a couple Abdullah line QH crosses who are wonderful.

      The first mare I bred was in 1988. She was an appendix QH and she was my dressage horse. I bred her to a Trakehner and the result was extremely successful. We competed against imported warmbloods and he did very, very well. He is still competing at the age of 20.


      • #4
        Is she registered AQHA? If so, I'd stick with TB if you want to yellow paper the foal.

        A Fine Romance (TB) has produced a score of hunter/jumpers and event horses. He's in Canada (Ontario?). He's quite popular as a TB performance sire. I'm not a TB lover, but I love him.

          We've had success with the Trakehner/Quarter Horse cross. My mother selected this cross back in 1986 but sold the mare before the foal was born because I was on the way =]

          Over the years, I have met some wonderful stock horse crosses .. including a Paint/Dutch Warmblood and an Appaloosa/Trakehner. However, I was most impressed by the Trak/QH I met. This caused me to select the Trakehner for our Quarter Horse mare who is linebred Skipper W.

          We went with Feuertanzer first, as this was my business partner's first time doing AI herself. I love the resulting filly, who is now coming 4 in June - she looks to be of hunter type and mentality. We bred back to a Trakehner with similar lines the following year, Feron - a son of Peron. The colt looks to be of Dressage type, but I'm still hoping he will turn into a fiesty jumper! Unfortunately, Feuertanzer has passed and Feron has been gelded & sold, so those referrals are of no help to the OP. But I do think the QH/Trak cross creates a great mix! Our Feuertanzer filly is Appendix D with ATA and would have been eligible for the half brand with the Canadian Trak group. The colt is eligible AWR.

            warmblood QH

            Hello!! I just bred my Appendix QH mare by Indian Artifacts to the Hanoverian Stallion Romantic Star. She is due in a few months. I will post pics.


            • Original Poster

              Mare is actually registered Breeding Stock paint, but is 100% QH bred.

              I have tried searching for Thoroughbreds that also have color (maximum sabinos and overos) and did not really find any that looked athletic or like they had proven sport horse offspring.

              I am breeding strictly for myself, and I want an athletic horse with the ability to jump 3'6" + as that is where my mare maxes out.

              I will not be breeding until next year, but am doing my research now I have looked at Lotus T, as he has some offspring out of QH's already, but was hoping for some other suggestions.

                    Love this thread

                    I have a QH mare by Sky Blue Walker. She had a foal by Royal T in 2007. Produced a correct dressage colt.

                    She is now in foal to Escapade. She's due May 15. I'll post pics.

                    I may breed her again so any suggestions are appreciated for me too !


                    • #11
                      If you stick with Trakehner or TB then you will get Appendix papers from either registry.

                      The ATA stallion auction is going on at the moment - there are several interesting stallions to look at. Off the top of my head Imago and Tatendrang are jumpers, and Pavarotti and Tradition are eventers - all available fresh. If you want frozen, then Abdullah, Tzigane and Horales are all top jumper/eventers.

                        A little off your request, but you might want to look at Bridon Belfrey www.benmarfarm.com He is a RID but has been used with QH and produced lovely IDSH. They sold a such a cross, if you look for Benmars Mint Julep I believe on their site.

                          I think my trainer has a breeding to Pavarotti that she would sell. She's just starting out and cannot collect any more horses.

                            Please keep the suggestions coming! I am quickly looking up all the stallions that have been suggested. Does anyone know if Hanovarians cross well with Stock Horses? Dacaprio and Donnerkeil are nearby.....


                            • #15
                              Stiletto is a trak stallion that has evented and has children eventing. (I think one is even on the FEI WSBF list) We know xx and QH go other and A Fine Romance xx produces the jump and eventers. Good luck!

                                Escapade has been crossed with a few stock type mares. Here is a blog on one of them that I found online.

                                  I wouldn't cross either of those stallions on a quarter horse. For one, Dacaprio isn't known to produce lots of scope (he is a Dressage stallion...), I certainly wouldn't use him to put jump on a mare. Perhaps if I had a mare that was a very good jumper, he might be okay... I've seen some decent hunters by him.

                                  Donnerkeil has produced very well on Thoroughbred mares, usually for event horses. Never seen him put on a stock horse... He's a pretty thick guy, wouldn't be my choice for a stock horse...

                                  If I were in your position, I'd go with a Thoroughbred. That's been done much more often, and IMO, with more success that using Warmbloods.

                                  A Fine Romance xx has an impressive production record, and he's a very nice Thoroughbred for sporthorse breeding. If your dead set on using a Warmblood, I'd probably go for one with a good infusion of blood. You need to consider registration options too.

                                    If I was breeding a quarter horse mare for sport I would breed to Triple Twist! This guy has bloodlines that are worthwhile.

                                    You could register the foal in the dam's registry (as paint?) And it would be nice to not have to go through the warmblood approvals for registration. They get expensive!

                                      I like Thoroughbreds, and would have no problem breeding to one. The only problem is that there don't seem to be many to choose from, sport horse wise.
                                      A Fine Romance is very well regarded and looks good, but I couldn't find a very good conformation photo, the one on the website was rather small.

                                      Are there any others to take a look at?

                                      I figure no matter what I will want some TB blood in a stallion choice, I just am not sure of how much yet.

                                        Trakehners do cross really well with QH's, so I agree with the countless others who have brought up that point. My stallion Pacific produced a VERY nice colt out of a palomino working type QH mare. He is now coming two this year, I'll see if I can get his owners to send me updated photos of him, but you can see him on our website under the foals. His name is Deo Volente. Pacific himself would make a fantastic event horse, as he is very level headed (NOT hot at all) and is a very willing horse as well as being very athletic. He will jump just about anything. However our focus is dressage and he will be geared for the FEI levels in dressage in the near future.
