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!

  • Speaking of HTS grooms, I saw Poinsey at Emerson's memorial service. Hadn't seen him in MANY years..


    • UPPERCO wins the first round with all correct answers for farm owners...

      For bonus points answer ALL 3 parts of the following:

      WHO was Emmerson Burr's famous brother ?
      WHAT was the name of the farm he managed ?
      WHAT was the name of the horse which fell with him, effectively ending his riding carreer ?


      • OUCH ! !
        NAME the Horse & show where the riders listed below had the major falls:

        JUNIE KULP


        • Raymond Burr

          He ran Fairfield since 1945
          Starman Babies


          • Junie Kulp- Penn. National

            Conrad- Hmmm was that at Hampton Classic? guessing sorry....


            • Em's brother Raymond was only at Fairfield for about 5 years. I was at his farm in Ocala a few years before he died, but I don't remember the name of it.
              I think Conrad's bad fall was at Tampa.


              • I thought all the questions referred to Em.

                Thus I meant Em ran the Fairfield since 1945

                Starman Babies


                • Correct - Em's Brother was Raymond.
                  What was the name of his farm ?
                  -- hint it was in Pennsylvania.
                  What was the name of the horse..


                  • Conrad's fall WAS NOT at Southampton.
                    Junie Kulp's was at Penn National - what horse ?


                    • Sorry Shorty, don't remember the horse. But he was in the jumper's and it was at that far corner, where the ring narrowed, right after the corner. Wasn't it a wall??

                      How bout Foxwood Farm in Kimberton for Raymond's farm and there, the grey cells are slowing down again.


                      • <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by Shorty:
                        NAME the Horse... had the major falls:
                        CONRAD HOMFELD<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

                        I can still see GHM and the full cheek snaffle with 2 reins on it.


                        • I thought Conrad's bad fall was at Tampa, and the horse was Abdullah.


                          • <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by Abby: I thought Conrad's bad fall was at Tampa, and the horse was Abdullah.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
                            That was my other choice... Abdullah...


                            • The only part of Shorty's ? I knew has already been answered so...guess I don't win a cruise today!

                              Abby, the Dr. was not one of the grooms I had in mind, although that seemed like an eternity ago. The caretakers I had in my mind preceded Dr. G's tenure. But, as they say, "thanks for the memories." LOL

                              Hey, what's LaurieP on holiday today?

                              [This message was edited by Emmet on Dec. 28, 2001 at 12:45 PM.]


                              • I can come up with three: Luke (Ragland), Speedy, David. Jimbo also comes to mind, but was he a "fixture?" Any hints?

                                And yes, I am most definitely on vacation (til the 2nd!!!), hence my absence from this machine that rules my life!

                                And you were correct on the Foxwood grooms; wish I had a scanner, as I have a group picture of them from an old PH article on Frances.

                                Can you name the farm Frances ran prior to Foxwood and for whom?



                                • You have named some of the fixtures although I would have to add Norman Woffrey to that list. I wish I had a scanner too as I have a great guess the horse, guess the groom photo.


                                  • TOOOOOO SLOW..
                                    The OUCH answers are...
                                    Junie Kulp - Pa National - Lillibuck
                                    Conrad - Tampa - Abdullah
                                    Raymond Burr - Kimberton Hills Farm - He was riding Scorpion.
                                    Farm Owner answer - Foxwood Farm - Frances Rowe.


                                    • #1 .Many years ago, Joe Green rode a horse called INJUN JOE - Later INJUN JOE was renamed and became what famous USET horse & who rode him ?
                                      #2 . Where did Harry Deleyer purchase his famous SNOWMAN ?


                                      • Didn't Injun Joe become Nautical "The Horse with the Flying Tail"? If so, he was ridden by Hugh Wiley.

                                        And I seem to remember that Harry Deleyer found Snowman at a very unlikely place. Perhaps an auction?


                                        • Oh, oh......#2 Snowman purchased at the New Holland Sales Auction. Oh lord, now I am rethinking that, LOL. It was an auction, but which one.. ah well.

                                          #1 Injun Joe, gee all I can think of was Gene Estep...????? Was he renamed Shannon Castle?

                                          Slower than molasses, I can see LaurieB already has the right answers....
