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!

    Alex and ShowJump are BOTH right -- I was thinking of Mrs Johnson and Super Flash and Fun and Games. Forgot they didn't have the A/A 's back then. Just goes to show you that, if Mrs Johnson could do the A/O's then we are wusses now about jumping 3'1"... Mrs. Johnson was the ultimate A/A rider. But she went in and rode around over those 3'6" jumps like a champ -- and occasionally got some nice ribbons.

    LH2 --- Name atleast 3 of the original fancy ponies that took over the pony division in the early '60's and changed the pony world forever (both small and large). Extra credit for naming owners and riders.

    LH3 Name two of Marvin Van Rappaport's horses and his farm name. Extra credit for knowing Marvin's business that enabled him to own these wonderful horses.

      Yikes Lord Helpus, I'm afraid the '60's will even outdate me, but I'll guess: Tidbit, Wenol Bechan? Think that was much later....hmmm.

      Marvin V.R.: Spindletop Showdown is one. The other's a Spindletop too, as I recall, but can't remember the name.

        So what was the answer to the questions about Paige Johnson, et al...

        *Behind every good woman lies a trail of men*


        • Original Poster

          I intended I.C.Blue Shadow, but VTRider insists Paige never rode that one. I think she's wrong, but will go w/the majority opinion! LOL


          • #45
            Is it true that there is a welsh pony names I believe Hillcrest Better than Blue who was named for IC Blue Shadow in a way?

              You and I come from the same era!

              Marvin's horses included Spindletop Showdown, Spindletop Please Note and Spindletop Midtown. His nightclub, Spindletop, in NYC financed the horses.

              Fancy ponies in the sixties:
              Smalls: Midget, Chantilly, Driftwood, Cockscrow Flair, Crepe Suzette, Wizard of Oz, Highfields Town and Country

              Larges: Pride 'n Joy, Prim 'n Proper, Neat n' Tidy, Rebel, Flying Mouse, Hot Shot Kid, Keswick, Thorwell

              I could go on and on. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                LH3 -- Spindletop Showdown.... It was Spindletop Farm. Can't think of names of other horses although I know they are in my memory bank somewhere right next to the information about what business he was in.....

                I rode a jumper out on Long Island a few times in the mid-70s who was called Klondike Kat that I was told Marvin Rappaport had owned, but I never did trust the person who told me that. He was a big chestnut, TB I assume, and I jumped my only 4' course on him.

                  You wanted owners and riders too? Yikes, this could take a while.

                    Here's a tough one and will show who the REAL trivia fans are: Two bays, one a TOP a/o mare in the 70's, winning many times at Indoors and probably more championships than any a/o horse before or since; the other, with a related name, out of the first horse, also champion many times in the regulars in the '90's. Both trained by the same trainer.


                    • #50
                      Oh dear, I am REALLY guessing here, but is the first one Kim's Song, the wonderful horse owned by Bruce Duchossios?

                      No clue about the second....


                      • #51
                        was named in reference to I.C. Blue Shadow. Both ponies were started at Road's End in the later 80's. Can't recall who rode I.C. first, before she went to Alison, but Kim Vernell rode Better Than Blue first and then he went to Goodmans and I am not sure at what point he "became" a medium.

                          Nope.......and wasn't Kim's Song a chestnut?

                          Major clue: first horse owned by same person who was also winning with Perfect Stranger.

                            Jane Womble (Gaston now) I can't remember the horse's name.

                              Maybe the late eighties (88/89) - Pretty cool to win the Nat'l Small and Nat'l Med Pony Hunter Championships on the same pony LOLOL!

                                All right, well obviously I don't mind making a complete fool of myself so I am going to guess again.

                                  LH2. Midget and Nancy Broody. Do I get extra points for knowing her brothers name was David?
                                  Smokey Joe and any or all of the Boyce�s.
                                  Serendipity and Margaret Houseman
                                  Penny Loeb and all of her ponies

                                  LH3 Spindletop Showdown and Spindletop Count Fleet, later bought by Nancy Candib. (Pretty Smart, huh?) And his dining establishment was the Spindletop. Did ja know that his name wasn�t van Rapport, but Marvin Rapport and van was his middle name?

                                    Right on, but that was an easy one.

                                    Here's a hard one. What famous trainer in CT had a phone # of Davis 2-1590. If you get this one I know you were a student of his


                                    • #58
                                      Margaret, Thats the horse I couldn't think of. I think you are right. Hopefully Alex will come back and let us know. Lord Helpus probably knows the answer too.


                                      • #59
                                        I thought I had heard that and always thought it was a cute name. I would imagine Vida Blue comes into those lines somewhere?

                                          But on behalf of anyone who every trained with Bob McDonald I am assuming that Fun and Games is not the same one who was in California with Kim Ostman.
