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.

  • Dressage/show hunter stallion for TB mare <$1000

    I have had an expensive season and I have a new mare that I wish to breed for a foal to sell and as her first foal and as a foal to present her for inspection with. I wish to stay below $1000 stud fee for fresh shipped. She is a lovely mare for sport horse breeding and I would have a lovely foal if it was just like her. Faults are minor...I want to clean up the front of her neck into her chest...her top line is lovely for hunter but her neck placement would need to come up for dressage. Changes to a generally correct mare...Her limbs are excellent but if she got more height from leg length as opposed to depth of body. She is just over 16 hands and I would want more height for a market foal. Her temperament is excellent and I would like to keep that to produce an amateurs mount. The only stallion I have on my mind at this point is Bayron http://www.panacheacres.com/bayron.html as we have a yearly Swedish inspection in this area and they respect TB mares in a pedigree.

    Thanks for any suggestions. PatO

    I was just looking at this guy yesterday... his fee for fresh is $500

      Well, you might look at Amorex - he's got a frozen under 1000 and his fresh is over, but not a huge amount and 1/2 or so isn't due until the mare is 30 days in foal.

      I may also be misremembering this, but I thought perhaps Cielo B had a special in celebration of winning the jumping portion of the stallion testing that might put him in range?

      Little Bit Farm has several that would be close to the 1000 and if the season's been bad I think he also has a clause where the bulk of the $$ aren't due until your mare is in foal as well.

      I think Silver Twist and/or Regulus (who has some nice tb crosses) might be close to the 1000 too- from Dreamtime Farm, but I think they would be AWR.

      Valhalla was offering Imminence for an intro rate that would be around your number I think - he's good looking but I don't know much re: Trak registration - I think w/a tb mare, you'd get 1/2 Trak papers? Their other new one - Hilife? - might have an intro too.

        Breed to an approved TK stallion and you would be able to register any foal into the ORB-B book. If that foal was a filly you could then present the filly for approval and be able to get her into the PSB book and HER foals would be fully registered/approvable into the OSB book. A colt could not be approved for breeding. UNLESS the mare is taken to an ATA approval and passed inspection. If that happened, the mare in question would be PSB and any foals (filly or colt) would be elig for OSB approval.

        PSB = Preliminary Stud Book (mares in this book are Anglo TK, Arab TK, or purebred TB or Arab and approved for TK breeding as a "betterment to the breed")

        ORB = Official Registry Book (not approved for breeding, but fully papered).

        OSB = Official Stud Book (fully approved for breeding).

          I *believe* Gray Fox Farms offers some REALLY nice discounts in the fall..for booking early. If you dont mind waiting till next season.
          I think Redwine would fix the neck, add some bling and defineatly add some marketabilty.

          These guys are having a huge sale right now...under $500

          I suppose you could go in this direction, as they are mostly TB anyways:

            Contact Amy at Heritage Manor Farm, she stands Routiner, Coromino and Rhythm and Blues. Two stand for 1k or less, and she does offer discounts.

            I love my Coromino gelding.

              Ask Kathy about Edelweiss de Bonce - he'll give you length of leg and a jumping pedigree.

              Coronado WW is $1k

                Check out Amazing...this is his first year standing publicly, but his pregnancy rate has been fantastic. As it is his first year, he is being offered for under $1000. He is 16.2 and is very athletic with beautiful gaits for the hunter ring. And his jumping form is textbook perfect every time. His best asset by far though, is his temperament. He is very easygoing, sensible, and quiet. My husband handles him on a regular basis, and he is a new convert to the horse world .

                Good luck in your search, and I hope your luck turns around!

                  My search results are due to price, not sure if they'd match with your mare..

                  Coromino is $950, Limited Edition & Banderas at Dreamscape are advertied at $1200 but you could contact Jennifer - that might be in Canadian funds and get you closer to your pricepoint. Claim to Fame is lovely as well...I'd get in contact with the SO's and see what discounts & incentives they may be offering. Oh, and there is the often over-looked stallion of Silver Lining at Silver Creek Farms...and Baron Van Gogh is a newer stallion at Rainbow Equus that is quite nice as well (were you looking for more depth of body or more leg - he is a big guy but I think would cross very well with TB blood). Escapade's stud fee is $700 according to his website & that's a deal as well. Pasolongo is a handsome hunter stallion -- and has more show ring miles & accolades than most of the 'advertised' hunter stallions. Juventus is at Cornell for 1k.

                  Well, that's a pretty good basic list and there are some nice horses on it to boot! And SO's with good reputations. Amazing what a few minutes on the internet will bring up for you - and with frozen the possibilities are endless...

                    I think Silver Lining would be great if you want a proven producer in that price range--he's a nice stallion and his bloodlines are fantastic.

                    I am VERY interested in seeing what Amazing puts on the ground and hope he is shown as well.

                    Honestly, it is so expensive to breed and feed them for a year (not counting the unforseen vet bills) and then add in the cost of inspections--I would be tempted to spend more if you find the perfect match. Sorry--my unsolicited two cents

                            For a TB mare, I had really good results with Coromino. The resulting foal went premium with GOV.

                            There are many good choices for $1k and under.

                            It's been a tough economy for SO too.

                              I don't disagree but this is a tough year. I sent out some mares and the one foal I have has joint ill that I am actively treating with the whole ball of wax and it is very expensive to treat with the whole ball of wax and Willa is not home yet. I shouldn't do this at all but it is a very nice mare. My plan is to secure her future a bit by getting a nice warmblood foal and getting her inspected with foal at side. She is a top mare who can't have a performance career due to injury. Wonderful wonderful mover with an excellent temperament and conformation...anyway I have to decide fast. PatO
