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!

  • Is Winter Place still going?


    • KLG gets the first 1/2 of the question right. Bernie DID show Royal Blue at NY as a working horse. But it was Linda Hough who rode him in the Ladies to Ride class at NY (and won it, which helped to made Royal Blue champion).

      I remember this story because, years later CeCe Durante had Royal Blue and wanted to retire him. Linda offered to retire him to Sutton Place because he was the first horse she had ever ridden at NY and that very first ride resulted in a blue. So, Royal Blue spent his final years at Sutton Place with [Spindletop ] Showdown and Sutton Place (the horse)). Those three had recently all died within several months of each other (one imagines that they were great good friends out in the field and they missed each other and so died out of loneliness...) when Valor retired there to live out his final days.

      • Any more guesses?



        • Jimmy Kohn?


          • Betsy (Mackenzie, Riot's groom) and I must have been the only ones to watch! It was CONRAD!! First hunter in MANY a moon that he had ridden. And he did a pretty fair job, too, as Riot wasn't an easy ride. Do I get a prize for stumping the contenders?

            Dodge Girl, Winter Place is long gone.


            • Lauriep -- Remember when Conrad rode Dottie Flanders horse, Play The Music (or something like that) in the regulars at Washington? I remember him saying that he thought that riding a hunter (and having to sit still and find yor spot out of the corner without making it obvious what you were doing) was harder than riding in a Grand Prix.

              I think that Dottie's horse was one of the last hunters he showed.....

              • I didn't remember until you mentioned it, and it would have been later than his ride on Riot Free by several years. And Play the Music is correct, he was Stogie in the barn.

                Whatever happened to Miss Dottie?



                • Alive and well
                  Now married to John Ammerman
                  They live in Waitsfield, VT
                  Look her up!

                  Catalyst just died recently. Y'all remember HIM?


                  • I was looking through old photos the other day--
                    Remember the speed horses? - Adam Ant (Bert Mutch?)? Snickers? All those Stillmeadow horses? The Hobbit (Jeffrey Welles?), Slip Slidin',...
                    I'm in such a daze this week. Sorry. I have no trivia questions.
                    Maybe somebody has some good SPEED HORSE trivia? I think Leslie and Katie had a few speed demons which amazed us all. I'm just not very horsey this week.


                    • Name the brown (black?) speed horse that Katie showed that was also being shown as a jr. jumper.

                      John Ammerman was a friend, as was Bert Lytle. If anyone sees Dottie, please say hi for me!



                      • SPEED HORSES --

                        Name the mare that Leslie used as a speed horse. She was wicked fast, but had NO breaks --- at Ocala one year, Leslie had to circle the ring about 5 times after finishing the course because she could not get the mare to stop (or even slow down...)

                          The very first speed horse that Leslie had was a mare named Casablanca. The Mckinney's owned her.

                          I don't remember ever bringing her to Fla. though. Of course, it was a long time ago, so maybe... She was Leslie's speed horse at her first world cup final in Baltimore. What year was it Laurie? Conrad won with Balbuco.

                          [This message was edited by Abby on Sep. 15, 2001 at 08:39 AM.]


                          • That brown speed horse? Caroline Clark's The Roofer? Do you remember the spoon bit?


                            • Yes, it was Bunny and George Weber who won three of four jumping classes at NY that year. She was second in the fourth class. That class was won by Hoodwink ridden then by Carl Linder.


                              • I knew it. B. French and the pulled tail super-hunter. I knew it all the time!
                                Now. Who took care of that horse and made him gleam?

                                Musta been that flax seed! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]


                                • What was (jr hunter champ) Watership Down's barn name?
                                  What was George Weber's? (Emmet may not play)


                                  • Can I play?


                                    • George Weber's original name was Superman and he was purchasd from Scotty Sherman.


                                      • Oops Abby. I thought I had both you and Emmet on the ineligible list!
                                        OK, you can play if you can guess BOTH nicknames.

                                        Nickname! KS! nickname...



                                        • How 'bout Whadyasay's alias?

                                          And yes, Yellow, he did consume flax seed, at least under my watch. What a character.
