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!

      When reading an article on Beale Wright Morris (who sadly died of the flu a couple years ago) in PH a long long time ago, I remember that the article noted that Beale's mother being one of the first women to ride on an Olympic 3 Day team.

      Is Lana DuPont Wright the mother of the Beale? A quick google search gave me this: http://oldfieldsschool.net/community...e.asp?id=82823

      So, I'm thinking it's not a coincidence of names. My vote is that it's Lana Dupont Wrght is the other woman.

      I would have been steamed to have been passed over because of gender. I bet they were too!

        Different question.

        Lana DuPont is the answer to the question "Who was the first woman to ride for the US team in Eventing ?" - in1964

        But the question is "who were the women who qualified for, but did not ride for, the US team in Eventing in 1958?"

        Weatherford, why were they running a qualifier in 58 when the Olympics were in 60?

            Janet, the 1958 qualifier was for the 1959 Pan Am Games.

            If you go to the history section on the USEA website (or my message above, where I quoted it), you can read more about it.

              Got it. Thanks.

              When was SECOND woman on the US team- after Lana DuPont in 64? I am pretty sure there weren't any women on the Mexico City team. What about Montreal?

                  I still want to know who were those women who were NOT selected in 1958. So back to the OP. Who were these finishers?

                    2 or 3 unknown women?

                    The original quoted material says that the selection committee went down to 5th place to get their man, which means that 3 women were passed over. One was Mrs. Davis, leaving 2 to identify. It also says that "Mrs. Davis and the next 3 finishers (all women) . . . " which suggests that we should be trying to figure out who the other 3 women are.

                            I think Jeanette might have the right info - but, while Trish Galvin was my HEROINE (one of them anyway, and why I was interested in Dressage in the 60's) I didn't realize she had evented first.

                            Wait, this is the CHRONICLE! Isn't there someone at the Office who can check the results of that event from 1958?

                            I was always told that the Miss Galvin married some cousin of mine - but, of course, that is the side of the family I don't know...

                              By thinking it might be Lana (duPont Wright), you are making her MUCH older than she is!! I don't think that is very nice!!!

                                I thought that at first too.

                                There are two women that were looked over. Taken from previous posts.

                                1st: Lithuanian, not eligible
                                2nd: Georganna “Georgie” Prime Davis
                                3rd: ? Patricia Galvin
                                4th: ? Marion Ritchie or Jan Karabin
                                5th: selected for Games

So I guess one could infer that men and women began competing in all 3 recognized displines in 1952. Badly stated paragraph.
                                  It is possible that the rules changed in 1952, but it took a longer for national selectors to be willing to send a woman. Senior sports bureaucrats today are often 80 year old ex athletes with good family connections. I have no difficulty imagining that they were not the most progressive of people in 1952.

                                    I found this:

                                    "Women have long been active in equestrian competition, but were not admitted to the Olympics until 1952 in dressage, until 1956 in jumping and until 1964 in the 3-day event."

                                      Okay..... I spoke with my cousin Donnan Sharp today. She was at the TEAM in 1962 and she says that she has no idea who they would be as it was held in Colorado which at that time was like saying it was held in China! She said the East coast riders back then really had no idea who most of the riders were on the west coast or about what was going on out there because it wasn't like it is today where the riders went back and forth alot to compete and their really were no results pages etc. (obviously she went out there if she was origionally from NY but no one I have spoken to so far knew who she was..so more mystery).
                                      She did suggest maybe asking Jimmy Wofford as he is quite the history buff. Otherwise we need to find a rider from the west coast from around then which could prove difficult. Another way would be to try to find it in the Chronicle archives because there must have been something written about it.
                                      The other tid bit of info I got was that eventing was very much still geared towards military and very shovanistic (sp?) back then which was one of the reasons she ended up going into Dressage.

                                      Oh and it wasn't Lana ..... before her time.

                                        Referencing the appendex of The U.S. Equestrian Team Book of Riding," after the '64 Games was the
                                        '67 Pan Am Games in Winnipeg Can. w/ Plumb, Page, Jim Wofford, Eckhardt
                                        '68 Olympics in Mexico City w/ Page, Wofford, Plumb, Freeman
                                        No Pan Ams listed here between 68 and 72 Olympics
                                        '72 Olympics in Munich, W Germany w/ Freeman, Davidson, Plumb, Wofford
                                        '75 Pan Ams in Mexico City w/ Coffin, Davidson, *Beth Perkins, *Mary Anne Tauskey

                                        So the answer to "Who were the 2nd and 3rd women to represent the U.S.?" is Beth Perkins and Mary Anne Tauskey (don't know if Coffin's Bally Cor was the first mare or not...)

                                        Isn't there a "Sporting Library" in Virginia that would know?

                                          Nope. Jenny Camp competed at the 1932 and 1936 Olympics. I don't know if she was the first but she's probably the best-known.

                                          I would think the Chronicle has the answer to the OP's question in their archives. It may have even appeared again in one of their "A Look Back" sections.
