    OK, I promise to refrain [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] Wouldn't want to be responsible for putting anyone's horse into therapy, goodness knows mine need enough for dealing with me [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    But he is an OTtb right?

    OK, I promise to quit now.

    But I will say he was a pretty horse when we was briefly at our layup facility...

    DMK - yes, he is OT, and yes, his race record was dreadful [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] However, he has a great jump in addition to having the prettiest head in the barn [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    that my horse's registered name (Jockey Club) is also HOT... !

    Yes, HOT JAVA.

    He is by Tim the Tiger out of a Miles Standish mare named Spanish Coffee...

    Even though I am an admitted caffeine addict, I couldn't stand it... He shows under the name Notorious (which does fit him, as it turns out.)

    Funny.

    I had a horse nammed 'The Dark Gift' named after a phrase in an Anne Rice vampire novel but it surely did not mean when it was dark I turned into a vampire threatening to drink the blood of every exhibitor I could find! [this post is for you Jane LOL] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]

    That's OK akrogirl, my guy is bred to the T's and his race record is quite dreadful. The same cannot be said for the rest of his dam's produce.

    Getting into this tb "hot" name thing....

    My tb's dam is "How Hot" by Fire Dancer. The sire is "Gruastark Dancer" by Fire Dancer. Northern Dancer is the great grand daddy on both sides, and my boy has inherited all his looks and heart. (And a cute jump.) Thankfully, my boy has a very tame name.... Adrienne's Hope.

    I'm still amazed by this thread. I wish someone would post a pic. I almost don't believe it.

    Why is everyone questioning HOT SEX's right to show? I mean, you don't need to be able to dress yourself, or even be able to ride, to show at HITS; you just need a horse, free time, and money!

    That said, VISIBLE LIP LINER? THONGS? MIDRIFFS OVER BREECHES?As a girl, I am APPALLED! Has anyone called the "Fashion Emergency" show on her behalf?

    The State of California has rules for personalized auto license plates and has seemingly escaped any and all challenges. Then, if there are complaints about one that slipped through, the plate can be recalled, I guess with no recourse. So, it would seem that whatever CA has done, certainly could be put into practice within the Federation's horse recording department.

    What with the objections being raised over this horse/rider combination, the rules should be put into practice immediately along with the provision for a review of any and all names currently in use.

    but I am a bit confused at the horror of the thong. Would you rather see the big granny panty line? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]

    After all I cannot imagine at a rated show someone half naked in underwear and all their nastiness hanging out galloping around a jumper ring!!! like some modern Lady Godiva on acid!

    While the name, Hot Sex, doesn't offend me, I can see where it could offend others. I, personally, would never name one of my horses this, tho.

    AHSA can and should be able to regulate the names that are attached to horses' with their AHSA registrations. AQHA does it all the time. While they will allow "Sexy" in a horse's name, there are limits to what they will allow, and they are not remiss in requiring breeders to submit alternative choices when none of their requested names are either available or are too risque.

    There was a jumper in Indio last year, I think, called Viagra. Wonder why the pharmaceutical company didn't jump on this one for some type of copyright infringement? There was a hunter in Indio, also, a couple of years ago with a totally inappropriate name (I won't even attempt to post it here...Erin would have a heart attack). The announcers out there "massaged" the name to give it a French-sounding twist, but we all KNEW what it really was.

    Dana exactly, I would never name my horse something like that because I love my horse and would never want to have them called things like that, but in this case I do not know what to say! Is it infringement? If so on whose part? Is it explicit? If so by whose standards? Is her clothing and behavior wrong? Again who judges this?

    This is from the head of Rules Compliance at the AHSA: <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>

    We have procedures in place whereby if a protest arrives in the office with the Stewards Report, all documents are forwarded directly to the Rules
    Compliance Department.

    This information is highly confidential as the parties involved and the Hearing Committee have to be notified of the matter which may subsequently go forward to a Hearing.

    Accordingly, I hope that you understand that I am unable to answer your specific questions regarding this matter. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    I think we can safely assume that the matter is being handled in confidence, as it should be.

    I can see why the name "Hot Sex" can offend some people.. it doesn't offend me but I would never EVER name my horse THAT! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img] That would be kind of degrading the horse..

    Is this horse any good? And I don't see anything wrong with wearing a thong while riding? lol granny panty lines are far worse than that!
