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!

  • Coke Commercial I.D.'s Anyone?

    Since we have to watch the commercials.......

    Has anyone seen the Coke commercial where the voiceover says something along the lines of "If you've enjoyed a Coke in the past 80 years, you've supported the Olympics." ?
    Can you ID the 3 riders on the medal stand? It's a quick shot of 3 men, but I'm not sure who.......anybody?

          OK, so I did some searching - what do you think..... Could they be Frank Chapot, Bill Steinkraus and George Morris from the Silver medal team in Rome 1960?

            Looking at their faces (and wardrobe), I think that is a very good guess.

              I don't know who the riders are, but the Coke ads are good. The ones for United Airlines on the other hand..

                Thank you MaryAlden!!! I hate those United commercials and never know what they are for until the end.

                The Budweiser ad on the other hand is great. I'll never tire of watching the horse buff up for the next year's hitch!

                  I *think* the one bending over is Mike Plumb but then why would George Morris be standing with him? It is a mystery. I bet someone comes up with an answer before midnight tonight!

                    I'm pretty sure it's Rome, 1960. Here is a picture of the stadium (note how the entrance arches match up, in sets of three)--

                    http://www.olympic.org/upload/games/1960S_city.gif

                    Mike Plumb wasn't on the team in 1960, I don't think.

                    Could it be the German gold medal winners? Winkler, Schockemohle, Thiedemann? Looks more like them in this photo (3rd photo down):

                    http://images.google.com/imgres?imgu...%3D2%26hl%3Den

                    I haven't liked the recent United commercials either, but I do like the current one where the lobster conducts the sea horse horns!

                      Tackpud, yes the Budweiser commerical is the best. Love that one, too, but I do wonder what the ad agency for UA is drinking.

                          Can I just say, thank you for this thread? Now I know I'm not the only crazy one who has been wondering desperately who those riders are...

                              Yeah I played it frame by frame and the one closest definitely looks like George Morris.

                                  I think the USA Show jumping team has been on the podium 6 times --- 1952, 1960, 1972, 1988, 1986 and 2004.. If there are pictures
                                  of the medal ceremonies online somewhere, in color, you might be able to match from same.. Can you see which color medal
                                  they are wearing? I tried to catch it but my eye's are in bad shape.

                                    here is the correct answer...

                                    That was back from 1968, Mexico City Olympics and I am gonna bet that was William Steinkraus accepting the medal.

                                    That year the top 3 in the Show Jumping were all men: Steinkraus-Gold on Snowbound, Marion (Yes a British Man) Coakes on Stroller - silver, and David Broome of GBR on Mr. Softee bronze.

                                    The dead give away are the "poofy" pants that were the norm then. And here is a page that shows a different angle of him receiving the medal:



                                    http://www.horsemagazine.com/ARTICLE...m/SJM/SJM.html



                                    Scroll down to Bill Steinkraus.



                                    I think that Mr. Coakes is accepting his silver medal in the ad.


                                    And just to seal it and stamp it....



                                    A photo of the Exterior of the Mexico City stadium:

                                    http://carraol.blogspot.com/2007/07/...c-stadium.html



                                    Note the flags on the perimeter. These are visible on the video

                                    Also remember, that it used to be a tradition to have the top 3 medalists from Individual Show jumping come into the stadium DURING the Closing ceremonies and be awarded their medals in front of everyone. This was evidenced at Los Angeles. I have it on my 1984 highlight VHS.

                                        Mexico City! I was at those Olympics, heavy security and police everywhere, can't remember why but it was a scene down
                                        there. I seem to remember that the Canadians won gold and I think the French won silver in team jumping.. I have an old program somewhere--- but now that you mention it, USA won gold in individual jumping and the British took silver and bronze. Boy Emily, you have a good eye!
