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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums' policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

    'Colored' upper level event horses?

    I've always had a complete fetish for colored sport-horses and especially Thoroughbreds.

    So who knows of real-life successful colored eventers? Share your pictures/links/stories?

    (Focus on the upper-levels or sport-horse/TB types- I'm well aware that at the lower levels, just about any breed can get around!)

    Oh man did I mis-read the title of this thread!

    I'm afraid to say I don't really know of any... except maybe Max's Project Runway who I think is running at the ** level. I think the horse is a WB, tho.

      There was a REALLY nice 4* horse maybe 10 years back or so named "Montana Native" that ran around Kentucky, and Pippa Funnell had "Bits N Pieces" who did Badminton and Burghley. Allison Springer had "Presto" that did a 3*.

      In the present day, in Area 4, Phillipa Humphreys has a very fancy paint that will run a 2* this season, and in the UK, there is a 4* horse, Patris Filius who has been very competitive at Advanced.


        Uptons Deli Circus competed up to two star level. There's also Polly Jackson's Two for Joy, who evented at four star level.

          I have a B/W ISH who was very successful at CCI** with his previous owner:

          Ringo at Jersey Fresh CCI** 2008

          Our partnership has been more rehab than anything else, alas, as he unfortunately suffered an injury about six months after I bought him, but I still can't really describe how lucky I feel to have him in my life. He's a seriously cool character and a great teacher

            Aww, he's flashy. Looks like he's a Trekhaner. From the link you posted:

            "My up-and-coming young horse-- he’ll be six this year. He’s a Trekhaner gelding named Project Runway. His barn name is ‘Devon’ and he’s out of Darren’s stallion Windfall. He was Reserve Champion at the Young Event Horse competition in the four and five year olds. He did his first preliminary at Galway Downs this past November and won the dressage"



              ridden by Torrance Fleishman (sp?) like the margarine. in the 70s?

              My husband won a great deal including the Area III champs show and overall, at Prelim on the little (15.1 hand) half TB

                Patris Filius:



                "Filius is believed to be by a Gypsy Cob stallion out of a flapper mare — this clever coloured with the brain of a pony and the stride of a horse helped Britain win team gold at the Young Rider Europeans in 2005."

                    Presto (RIP) was ridden by Allison Springer but owned by COTHer GotSpots.

                      There was afairly loud Appy named Naughty By Nature who I believe did Advanced as recently as a few years ago. Not sure what happened to him.

                        Erin Kellerhouse has brought one along that is a black and white paint. Not sure of it's breeding. WB cross I believe. She has been doing super well with it through intermediate. They are a great combination.


                          The colored horse, Peaceful Warrior was ridden by Chris King and Bettina Hoy at the Advanced level. Supposedly the horse 'Tonto' had a suspensory injury and came back, but not sure who's riding him these days.


                            Poltroon of course, wasn't there a UK bred, Pompadoom?

                              Our breeding focus...minus a few very terrible set backs...has been, overo painted Pure Thoroghbreds and more recently 3/4 and 7/8 TB - Irish Sport Horses. Even though we lost Jagged Illusion, his one and only foal is a now two year old ISH (3/4 TB) who is a stunning seal brown and white overo. She should mature to about 17 hands.
                              This year we are breeding a couple of the painted Thoroughbred mares to our 1/2 TB-1/2 RID stallion by Touch of the Blues. These horses have the TB look and movement with just a touch more bone and great brains! Our hand picked mares should produce horses suitable for several different sports.
                     The ISH filly is not on the web site - I don't want to sell her!!! Here is a baby and a yearling picture.

                                My wonderful puppy dog chestnut/white appendix was very successful through preliminary and doing well when he moved up to intermediate last summer till his injury. but hopefully he will be back in action by this fall. I would add a pic link but my technology is being stubborn. See more about him here:

                                  Love this thread! Have always wanted a paint sporthorse. I will make it a reality one day. I know you're not supposed to horse shop based on color but I'm sorry I can't help it!

                                    Shirley Aronson rode a pretty loud appaloosa named "Jet Legs" and I believe won the 3* at Galway Downs among other events at the upper levels. The horse was given to her, he was difficult and no one wanted him, and he went on to be very successful.

                                    there were some great pictures of them on the internet but I cannot find them.

                                      Thanks for all these names, great to know that they're out there...

                                      This thread needs more pictures!

                                      I'd be especially interested if anyone has seen/heard of any creme horses (palamino, perlino, cremello, etc) having any success at prelim or above. I have an extra special soft spot for those guys. Or any true-blacks with chrome. Those are my FAVE!
