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!

  • What Warmblood Hunter Stallions cross best with Tb Mares?

    I'm looking to breed my Rockpoint Tb mare and wanted some suggestions on really nice, fancy/quality hunter wb stallions w/ exceptional movement/jump/and temperament/disposition for an amateur

    I've been considering using the dutch wb stallion Haarlem-i had the most wonderful horse by him,and recently tragically lost him,and thought it might be nice to breed my mare to him...however i don't know if he crosses well w/ Tb's ...i haven't been able to find any info on that....but i'm open to suggestions on any horses that are proven and known to cross well w/ a Tb.

    Any suggestions or info would be greatly appreciated...thanks in advance

    I think if you search for "Hunter" in the subject of threads on this forum, you'll find several threads which will answer your question There are LOTS of really, really nice Hunter stallions out there, from TBs to WBs

      I love Apiro with some TB blood, and his babies are gorgeous. Escapade as well-his babies are born broke it seems.

      If you would consider a younger stallion, Amazing has all the qualities you mentioned...his temperament is the best you can find, and he moves and jumps extremely well-a hard combination to find.

        I repeat bred my TB mare (with conformation/substance very similar to Rockpoint's) to Cunningham (Cassini I x Iorella [Contender], National Grand Champion Conformation Hunter 2007, etc.) and am delighted with the results.

          Check out Figaro B.

          Super amateur temperament, champion (or reserve) at every show this year (High Pre Greens - he's only coming 5 - circuit champion at Gulfport) - and a great cross on TB mares.

          Lovely pedigree: Pavarotti vd Helle (Pilot) out of a Wellington mare.

            Take a look at Ironman, he crosses exceptionally well with TB mares. He is very well known for his wonderful disposition and how he passes it on. His offspring are so easy to work with , train, and break. He was the #1 HB sire in 07.

              Roc USA. He has produced first year green champion at WEF and 3yr old national hunter breeding champion and 6yr old young jumper finals champion and #1 ISR/old performance mare and the list goes on and on...

                  I second Escapade. I loved my filly by him last year out of my TB mare and have another due in a month and a half. i also have 2 maybe three that will be bred to him in the next month. I know there were several of his foal out there showing and all to my knowledge were started and showing with their Ammy owners. Ever his pony foal showed and did awesome with a young rider!! Good Luck!!

                    Argosy. He crosses really well with TB mares. I just bought a mare by him and she is wonderful. I also used to school another gelding by him and he was great as well. Both are extremely comfortable to ride, and SUPER athletic. Both are the result of him being crossed with TB mares. I know a few of his other babies (not so baby anymore!) were also ammy friendly and super easy to ride--also TB crosses as well. Gook luck in your search!!


                    • #11
                      In addition to the stallions already mentioned... You could research Westporte, Just The Best, More Than Luck, Edison, Willemoes, Chaleon, Good As Gold, Pablo, Beste Gold, Sir Caletto, Claim To Fame to name a few

                        The 2 newborn Redwine's out of TB mares I saw today are absolutely to die for & he'd probably be my first choice. I also love Don Alfredo, Pablo, Popeye K, Cunningham, Romantic Star, Federalist, Jones Hall and Banderas.

                          I adore my Pablo two year old out of a Diamont but half TB mare. Redwine has made some lovely foals o/o TB dams, but the list could go on forever. There are so many super stallions to shop.

                            Richard is crossing nicely with TB mares. He is adding nice bone and size on those foals. I have some nice TB mares already booked to him for 2011 foals so we should see some more nice ones next year as well.

                              I bred one of our TB mares to Just The Best and love, love, love the cross!! My colt isn't a year yet and is the nicest, most level headed boy I could ask for.

                              He's gorgeous also and in a major growing spurt right now or I'd post a picture! I'd highly recommend one of Tish's stallions: www.tishquirk.com

                                      Not yet but I met her & she is FABULOUS! I wanted to take her home with me. You are going to be thrilled with your foal. Both fillies were out of TB mares & both were knockouts. Wrigtwoodfarms on this BB owns one & posted in the 2010 foals thread. Another was a filly born about 3 weeks ago who was equally as lovely. I also saw the Romantic Star/Rubinstein/Raphael/Furioso II colt. Wow, wow, wow! Is he ever something!

                                        Redwine /TB Filly

                                        Just got home from seeing my Redwine filly, Red High Heels (barn name Prada) out of a TB mare and she is beyond my wildest dreams. Let me try posting a few photobucket links to some pictures taken at two days old.
