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!

  • Up And Over Farms: Winston

    Anyone know if this farm is still around and owns the Grey Hanoverian Stallion, Winston? Ralph Hill rode this stallion for a short time.

    As of 2006, this listing: http://www.breeding-stallions.com/photos324.html

    The woman there, Susan Resh of Phoenix Hill Stallions in FL was indicated as the owner, even when he was standing at Up and Over Farm. http://www.cowboy.com/category/203/S...n_Winston.html

    The Up and Over Farm Website doesn't seem to exist anymore.
    OTTBs rule, but spots are good too!

      Hunh yeah the website is gone. He was a nice stallion, I won a breeding to him in a benefit auction (when Kim Meier got hurt I think) and never got my mare bred because the vet they were using was always 'unavailable' when we needed a shipment (the clinic said he would only collect for one of their techs, who was always on vacation!). The farm owner changed clinics the next year but I had other plans for the mare by then..... bummer....

        The last time I emailed Winston's owner, Sue Resh, with an update on my two boys, she said Winston was in Florida with her. If you PM me I can give you her email address.

          Not sure if this is the same "Up N Over" you were looking for... but thought I'd share, as Nad is local.

          Yes, I ride a pony. No, he would not be ideal for your child. No, he is not a re-sale project...

            LucyJane sent me this thread, Jenn sorry about what happend with your breeding. Anyway, Up and Over was leasing Winston for breeding but when the economy went south they didn't get a lot of bookings and we had some vet issues, some of which I take the blame for, but in the end I decided it was in his best interest to bring him home. He is gelded and living the good life here with me in Florida, boarded at the same stable where he was born. He always enjoyed working so we keep him busy doing some light dressage. Even as a stallion he always was very good at taking care of his less than athletic Mom and seems quite content to do so now.
            Ralph actually rode Winston his entire career through a few advanced horse trials and one or maybe even two star, don't remember, but we retired him at 13 just prior to the accident because of some nagging suspensory issues. It was important to me that he retired relatively sound and we chose not to push him any further. He deserves no less than a long and happy retirement as he always did everything we asked of him and tried his heart out each and every time out. He is truly a once in a life time horse and I will always remember our time in the eventing world very fondly and am very proud of the babies he put on the ground. Ralph also competed Winston's son Independance Day to Prelim. That boy is with a mutual friend, Ivy, who was with Ralph at the beginning of Winston's career and took care of Indy as a baby for a few weeks during weaning. They do mostly jumpers now. If there is anything in particular you need to know I am happy to answer any questions or help in any way I can.

              I am absolutely delighted that Winston is home with you, Sue. Thank you for rewarding him with a wonderful "retirement".

                  Thank you to all of those that posted...I was able to get a hold of Sue. I have a Winston mare that I'm looking to find a new home for. Figured she was the best person to contact. Thanks again!

                      So glad to hear that Winston is doing well. I always loved that stallion. I have a coming 5 year old by him that I am finally getting started under saddle. It is a few years later then I would have liked to but no fault of his own. He is a very sweet boy and a really nice mover, I am looking forward to eventing him in the future. His name is Winslow and you can see him at www.cestlaviefarm.com under our horses.

                        Sue, thanks for the Winston and Indy update! I'm so glad they are both doing well!
