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.

  • Stallions going to the 100 Day Test this year??

    I have not seen a list of the stallions who will be attending the 100 Day Test this year, or the 30 Day Test for that matter. Anyone know?? Please share as I am curious.

      I believe 17 stallions are attending and started about 10 days ago. As soon as I find a list I will post it.

        I know of 4 or 5 that are there, but I'm waiting for an official list to be released before saying anything. I think that after all the controversy after the last testing, they are trying to stay kind of "low key" with this one.

          Do they ever host a stallion testing in the SE part of the country. Is it ever open to spectators? Thanks

                  There are some stallions from the province of Quebec that were inspected with the Old/ISR in 2005 and 2006: Royal T, Aliano, Bratt Z and Sir Wanabi that should be going.....but I think three of them Royal T, Aliano and Bratt Z are still in Canada?

                  Can someone elaborate on that? If they don't go, won't they lose their approval with the Old/ISR?

                    Also, does anyone know what happened with the "Young Horse" session that was advertisied before the test?

                      Paxton Farm's events calendar mentions something along those line MagicRose:

                      But it was for the mid-term.

                      I am not aware of anything like that at the start of the test.

                      Vinca is there, he's stabled next to my stallion. I have to say I didn't take note of who else was there. Saracen is also there. It was good to see En Avant. She's been holding my hand. Actually, several people have been holding my hand.

                      I got a big sense of relief when Edgar noted that we are 10 days into the test. One tenth the way there! I need to install one of those countdown clocks on my computer.

                            Gatsby there!

                            My guy is there and boy am I nervous! My husband and I agonized for months before we finally made the decision, but in the end, we decided that it would be the best thing for him if he can get through it successfully (fingers crossed). I will be on pins and needles until it's over, but I'm excited about how it will hopefully mature him and give him lots of great training.

                              I can give a rough list from what I remember. I have forgotten some names and some pedigrees. As said Saracen is there as is AHF's Fielding, Vinca and Gatsby. There is Angela Barilar's Fuerst Heinrich son, Fuerst Impression, A Hohenstein son, Highlife, Rapture R. by Rotspon, another black Rotspon that I can't remember the name of, Sir Wanabe who I believe is a Sandro Hit grandson, a chestnut Waikiki son from California, Bravo who is by Bugatti Hilltop, a Regazoni, an Argosy and a beautiful brown Conteur son called Confetti. Wamberto wasn't there yet as he was still in quarantine but, he may have arrived by now. I may have forgotten someone but, as I said this is just what I remember from one day.

                                The AHS office released a list of the enrolled stallions for me yesterday to post on the website. Go to http://www.hanoverian.org/Stallions/...lts/2007.shtml for more info.

                                  I dont think Sir Wanabi is a SH grandson... he is by Santorini (Sunlight/Dirk) out of a mare by Lortzing/ Leibwaechter... he has been bougth at the RCMP auction as a 2yo or 3yo if my memory is right.

                                  He is a very nice stallion btw. No that much advertized, but I was positively impressed by is appearance at the Old/Na licencing.

                                    How is it fair to have a 7yr old and an 8 year old stallion competing with the 3 and 4 year olds? one stallion born in 1999 is there, one born in 2000 is there! *sigh* I thought they didn't allow stallions older than a certain age, which I thought was 6?

                                      Does GOV accept the horses that pass the test at Paxton? or will they then have to be presented at a GOV inspection site? How doesthat work?

                                        Letter posted on the AHS website from Suzanne Quarles:

                                        100 days test -- Letter of Introduction

                                        Hello Stallion Owners!

                                        I was very glad to meet some of you at Paxton Farm and sorry that some of you were unable to be at the start of the 100 Days Test. For those of you who were at Paxton Farm on August 2nd and 3rd, I hope you had a safe trip home and for those of you who were not there, I'd like to explain a little about my "job" as the Technical Delegate of this Testing.

                                        I am the current Chairperson of the American Hanoverian Society Mare and Stallion Committee, licensed to inspect mares and stallions. I have stood stallions for over 25 years, breeding both by live cover for Thoroughbreds and by transported semen for warmbloods. I feel that I am well qualified to be a voice on behalf of the stallion owners and to stick up for those concerns that I would have if one of the stallions in the testing were mine. I can assure you that I will always put myself in your place when questions come up or decisions have to be made. I have also been a USEF licensed Dressage and Eventing Judge and Technical Delegate for some 30 years and have always considered myself as a fair and impartial judge, an excellent upholder of the rules and a fair arbitrator. I was asked by Doug Leatherdale and Ekhhard Brysch if I could make myself available.

                                        I am doing this "job" and I am taking time out of my farm schedule for the benefit of the horses participating in the testing. I am not the employee of the Testing, Paxton farm, the AHS or the Oldenburg N/A. I am not getting paid, only reimbursed for food, lodging and travel. I want to see that the testing is conducted on a level playing field and that each horse gets to train and exhibit his strengths to the best of his ability out of the best of the ability of the training staff. I hope I can be of some assistance and that I don't disappoint you. I will be available by e-mail for you to voice your concerns or to ask questions anonymously. Unless you request that the e-mail not be forwarded to all, I will send everyone your questions/concerns and my reply.

                                        While at Paxton Farm, I met with Helmut Schrant, the Testing's Training Leader, Dr. Christian Schacht, the Oldenburg N/A representative, Hugh Bellis-Jones, the Executive Director of the AHS, Dr. Scott Strosneider, the Testing's veterinarian and Helmut's staff of riders. We tried to anticipate questions and circumstances that might arise, and in that vein, have set some policies.

                                        We first addressed the policy of visiting. Visitors' day is Friday, and is open to the owners and the public alike to watch the stallions in training. Helmut will allow other, occasional visits when owners are unable to come on a Friday, but he wanted it to be known that calling beforehand would allow him to schedule your horse to be ridden while you are there. Otherwise, it is possible that your stallion would already have been ridden, and Helmut is adamant that he will not bring the horse out again. Secondly, we agreed that supplements that are required by your stallion must be accompanied by a letter of need from your local veterinarian and these supplements can only arrive packaged by Smart Pak. In the past, the feed room looked like a supplement warehouse with baggies, twist ties, big and small buckets and scoops of every size and shape imaginable. Adequan and Legend will be available to all stallions through Dr. Strosneider. Please contact him directly to see that this is done on whatever schedule is needed. No medications of any kind will be allowed to be given by the owner. Moreover, in an effort to uphold the level playing field concept, drug testing will be conducted randomly during the 100 days.

                                        We also discussed what to do about owners that want to take on some sort of hands on approach, big or small, with their stallion during the testing. We discussed this at great length, and agreed that these stallions were first and foremost in a testing situation to determine how they can deal with trials and tribulations and how adaptable they are. The concern is that all stallions should get the same handling and 'perks'. We felt that it wouldn't be fair to have some get hand grazed, or massaged or receive any extra care, if not all could have those same opportunities. It is that level playing field idea again. So, we will adopt a policy that owners will not be allowed to handle their stallions, ride them, longe them, graze them or groom them for the 100 days of testing. I hope you can all see that this policy is about fairness.

                                        I will be going to Paxton Farm two more times before the final testing. I will be there Tuesday and Wednesday September 4 and 5 and Friday and Saturday October 1 and 2. If you send me an individual e-mail after these times, I'd be glad to pass along what I had observed.

                                        All the best.

                                        Suzanne Quarles
