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!

  • SWB? Nepal, Holsteiner, and Gelderlander/KWPN stud info needed

    I've been researching some bloodlines and thought I would come here for ones I'm not having as much luck on.

    KWPN (SWB?) Stallion: http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/nepal8
    Nepal (Pericles x Iregina) - what did HE do? Anything? I've been able to find daughters of Nepal that have produced international level horses, so he seems like a good broodmare sire, and he has produced dressage and jumping offspring. He is registered KWPN but I seem to find more when I search him under Swedish WB. Even still I really can't find much about his performance (if he had any beyond stallion approval). Also, anything on his damsire Dolman (Holsteiner)?

    Gelderlander stallion Pygmalion (Locomotief x Melvira) - again not much I can find on HIM. His offspring have produced some nice sport horses (like Rubus-B) but that is as far as I get.

    Any pedigree gurus able to tell me more on either of them?

    Pygmalion is not a Gelders horse - he is a Harness horse type.

    He is the grandfather of 4 approved KWPN stallions.

    3 harness types & 1 Gelders:

    Name: PYGMALION Tuigpaardtype
    Licensed grandsons
    FORTISSIMO 87.308 Stb
    HARALD 89.856 Stb
    HEINEKE 89.95 Stb
    RUBUS-B (GP) 98.02257 Stb (ex Rubus vb KWPN)

    Here is a link the KWPN info on all approved stallions:

      I'm a little embarrased to ask this but...I really wasn't aware Gelders and Harness were different types (I was thinking they were one and the same). Could you, or someone, elaborate on that?

      Tks!

        From the KWPN-NA website:

        Breeding Goal for Gelders Horses

        The breeding goal is to produce a Gelders horse that can be used for multi-purposes. The Gelders horse distinguishes itself both in harness and under saddle with its happy appearance, reliable and willing character, healthy constitution, functional conformation, correct movement mechanism and correct base with a preferably attractive exterior. To reach this goal, the Gelders horse should be suitable for use under saddle and in harness with an elegant build with substance, self carriage, sufficiently developed legs and big gaits with light knee action in the foreleg and with power and carrying ability from behind.

        Breeding Goal for Harness Horses

        The breeding goal is to produce a harness horse that can perform in the highest levels of Harness sport and also possesses a healthy constitution, functional conformation, a correct movement mechanism and a correct base with a preferably attractive exterior. To reach this goal the harness horse should have good suspension in the trot with a foreleg that moves well with high knee action and a hindleg that steps under powerfully, as well as proud self carriage with a long vertical neck.

          Hmmm, but he is listed as having full gelderlander blood - but bred for Harness. I guess that is another distinction? Blood vs type?

            The history can be a bit confusing. We have a thread here about this Gelders and Harness Horses: http://www.chronofhorse.com/forum/sh...61#post4566861

            Yes, it is very much about fitting into the "type" profile. There can be no more than 12.5% impovement blood in either book.

            Here are some interesting registration possibilities:
            1) You can have a 100% Gelderlander bred horse, papered as a Dutch Harness Horse.
            2) You can have a 100% Gelderlander bred horse, and it is papered as a Gelderlander.
            3) You can have a 75% Gelderlander (who is very much Gelderlander in type), but he is papered as a Dutch Warmblood because the other 25% is thoroughbred.
            4) You can have a 87.5% Gelderlander, but he is papered as a Dutch Harness Horse.
            5) You can have a 75% or better Gelderlander blood (some though Dutch Harness Horse, and some through Dutch Warmblood mares with Gelderlander blood), and it is papered as a Dutch Warmblood
            6) You can have a Dutch Warmblood father on a Dutch Harness Horse dam, and it is papered as a Dutch Warmblood.
            7) You can have a Dutch Harness Horse father on a Dutch Warmblood dam, and it is papered as a Dutch Warmblood.
            8) You can have a Gelderlander father, on a Dutch Harness dam and it is papered as a Gelderlander (as long as there is not more than 12.5% improvement blood).
            etc, etc, etc.

              Nepal 390 was born at Flyinge (Sweden State Stud). That is a VERY old bloodline as he was born in the mid 50s. His offspring actually show a higher ability to jump than dressage, but still average in the dressage index. He was the sire of a few approved stallion but I see him a lot in dam lines. Versatile but old style boy.

                    to find offspring of Nepal go to:

                    http://www.paardenfokken.nl/pedigree.php?horseid=11061

                    then click on Progeny

                    that will generate a list of his offspring (not all)

                    you can then look for ones that have sport results

                      For the Harness Horse book you can have up to 75% improvement blood, but that blood must be either Hackney Horse or American Saddlebred.
