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!

      MIDGE-
      you might not have seen this in the earlier post, but do you have any idea where Catherine Winter is? She bought my eventer as a jumper, sold him to Ann Crain a year later, and I haven't heard from her since. I have a feeling they moved back to France b/c they sold their awesome facility in Franklin to some QH people.
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------



      I am jumping to this conversation. Was your horse "Daring"? I remember him as being a pretty cool horse. I remember she had "Daring" as her jumper and "Bourbon Street" as her hunter before they "disappeared". I don't know anyone who knows what happened to them.
      <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

      THANKYOU for jumping into this conversation. DARING was my horse! I bought him as a 4 year old in KY, registered as "Port Power" for $3,000 (I called him Sport and never ended up giving him a show name, we just showed under that). He had never raced b/c he barely made it to 15.3. We were both fairly green (rider and horse) and with the help of my very patient trainer took him from being high strung and rushing at fences to 6 years later winning at prelim eventing and childrens jumpers, AND loping quietly around a Childrens Hunter course. He was the absolute BEST! Anyways, I sold him to Catherine when I started applying to colleges and she changed his name to Daring. Do you know how they did together? I was so sad and totally lost touch (except that I'd sneak out of school during lunch and go sit in his stall with him!) Anyways, I'm pretty sure he's retired on Ann Crains farm now.

      So sorry this isn't related to ponies of the 80's and 90's, but somebody here knows my baby!!!

      • Jennifer Collins first showed Sabrina. She qualified for Devon as a green and was laying down the trip of her life when Jennifer winged at the last jump and chocolate chipped. I think Don Stewart was judging and he actually threw his clipboard in the air.

        • My favorite pony of all times, naturally, was mine- Woodland's Shropshire Lad. But, my second favorite was his look-alike brother, Woodland's First Ballot. Ballot was much fancier than mine, but standing side by side, there was no doubt they were brothers.

            • Spoiledsweet: Penny Whistle was owned and shown by Rebecca Rotiske. Boy, he could be really rotten. Her med. was Low Profile, I started him sooo long ago, and she went on to do quite well in the Division with him in this Zone. I lost track of what she had after she was done with Pro. I feel really old now.

                  • Perhaps we know each other. I knew both those ponies through their careers. Pro could be a little butthead as a greenie, too.

                    Rebecca had a large junior, Blame It On Rio, who she bought from Jeff Ayers. She did a lot of winning with him, though he was a tough one, too. That kid could ride.

                        I think you got the sivitz's and Hillary Schlusemeyer mixed up. Hillary Schlusemeyer didn't have any siblings and owned Brownland's Little Eenie from her green year and through a few more. Kelly Farmer rode Eenie one year at Pony Finals. Eenie jumped like a million dollars but was bad with her changed and constantly got her tongue over the bit.

                        I think Hillary might have ridden third light a little bit. But maybe not, it would have been when third light was green.

                          last night I remembered who Courney Wolf's pony was- Rising Star (medium)

                          Anyone remember Farnley I Guess and Woodland's After Dark?

                          • Silver Tide was originally ridden by Mary Lisa Nicholson as a junior.

                            • What about:

                              Glenmore Twilight (champion at WIHS in the early 90's)
                              Glenmore Pinkie

                              Both were at my barn back in the day. I know Leigh Szubrowski (sp?) owned Pinkie at the time but I'm not sure what happened to either pony. I had heard that Prissy (Glenmore Twilight) was no longer with us but I'm not sure. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

                                Twilight was ridden by Amy Boyle in the late 80's.
                                Pinkie is now owned by the Sassmanshaussen family of Ohio...she's taught several of their boys how to ride and is still trucking around with the youngest one.

                                • Ann changed Sport's name from Daring to Fantastico. His barn name is still Sport. She was still showing him in the low jr/ao stuff last year and small mini prixs, not sure about this year. The last time I saw Catherine show Sport was during the Music City Grand Prix where he said NO WAY at the water jump so Catherine took a solo dive!
