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!

  • of Flying John, LP.

    If memory serves me (which more and more these days it doesn't) Frank rode Viscount in Montreal '76 Games.

    Speaking of Montreal...

    Here's one. Which horse and rider, jumping in the Stadium in '76, one strided the two stride double vertical after the water?

    For the Daily Double, what was the outcome?

    What American won the John Player Trophy at Wembley in '74 and on what horse?


    • I wanna say Tad Coffin and Bally Cor. Jumping in the stadium on their 3rd day. I doan know why.
      Of course I have no recollection of the 70's. That part of the brain is dead. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

      Was it a US rider?


      • Johnny's Pocket won the Grand Prix of Devon (1981). Name his 3 professional riders (forget his junior jumper career, please).

        And the same rider won in 1982 as well. Can you name THAT horse?
        hint - Canadian owned.


        • Wrong discipline. Not North American. Try the other side of the pond. Hint: female. Hint: horse was bay.


          • What horse, while still a second year horse, won three of four over fences classes at New York in the A/O hunters?

            What horse won the fourth class?

            Hint: I can't remember the name of the other horse either, only it's rider and it's color. But I'll know it when I hear it!


            • Gotta be a B.French horse.


              • Stab - Stab - Stab in the dark...
                How about Marion Stokes (?) and Stroller
                Went clean.
                Was that the 60's? Geez I can't remember. My brain hurts now. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]


                • Not sure what order for riders here:

                  1.) Norman Dello Joio
                  2.) Katie Prudent
                  3.) Judy Richter

                  I think the horse from 82 was Norman's "I love you"... been awhile!!!!1

                  • Abby and PA Adult already filled things in partway.

                    Small pony model:
                    1. Moon Comet, owned by Syndy Paul, ridden by Cindy Wiener
                    2. Cockscrow Flair, Lucie McKinney
                    3. Chantilly, Syndy Paul
                    4. Driftwood, Gail Hulick
                    5. Midget, Nancy Baroody

                    Large Ponies:
                    1. Springledge Irish Twig (Twiggy), Lindsay Dugan. And yes, she was subsequently protested and measured out. I believe it happened about a year later.
                    2. Pride 'n Joy, Laurie Snyder
                    3. Rebel, Judy Korn
                    4. Chimney Sweep, Cindy Wiener
                    5. Prim 'n Proper, Debbie Cahn


                    • Springledge Irish Twig! That's the one! She lived down the road somewhere from FCHC, not at the club. My friend Laurie leased her, and I was so jealous! She was a wonderful "pony", until she wasn't a pony. That's when Laurie got her to lease. It's a shame the childrens hunter division was just beginning then, because once she was protested out of ponies, there was no real place for her. She had plenty of step to do the horse distances, and she was a great jumper. Just a tiny bit too big. I dug out some childhood photos of her last night.. Hadn't thought about her in 25 years.....


                      • Awwh gee, I know the answer to that one. .

                        Not Stroller. I think that pair was '68 and were Silver Medalist.

                        The one I have in mind was a young lady by the name of Debby Jonsey representing Great Britian. Can't remember the horse's name but it jumped the tight two double of verticals after the Olympic water, in one with nary a fault. Sure weren't perty, tho'.

                        Hunter ?...you're getting warmer. Alex, this one should be right up your alley.

                          Hmm.....you didn't answer Yellow Dog, but I would've guessed Bunny French too - is that the right rider?


                          • Yeah, I realized last night I was thinking too far back into the Ronnie Silcox/Snowbound years. Stroller I remembered was late 60s.
                            Emmet- On the NY hunter I am stuck. Need more caffeine...
                            Johnny's Pocket was piloted by Ellen Raidt (Lordi),Katie and NDJ. And I must confess, I forgot about Judy being a professional - so Jody got me on that one! (Ellen is judging the Medal finals this year!).
                            But Jody, I got you on '82. That was Grand Lieu (Canadian owned).
                            I'm going to the food tent to get some coffee. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]


                            • Nautical Hall


                              • Riot Free, was normally piloted by RJ. However, due to circumstances beyond RJ's control, one year at indoors Riot had another jock. Who was it?



                                • Lauriep I do not know the answer to your question about Riot Free, but it brought to mind another question about a wonderful working horse -- Royal Blue --

                                  Who was his rider, and, in those years when NY had a "Ladies to Ride" class, who rode him in that class? (I have decided that the "Ladies to Ride" designation constitutes ciecumstances beyond the regular rider's control, LOL.)
                                  "He lives in a cocoon of solipsism"

                                  Charles Krauthammer speaking about Trump


                                  • Did Bernie Traurig ride Riot Free that year?


                                    • Original Poster

                                      I'll take a stab at these:
                                      Riot Free was ridden by Patty Heuckeroth.
                                      Royal Blue, Gary Ryman, then with, I believe, Winter Place, so I'll guess Katie Monahan in the Ladies to Ride?


                                      • Cynthia Williams also showed Royal Blue


                                        • Cynthia started Royal Blue then Bernie Traurig, rode him through his working years
