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!

  • Can anyone tell me about the well known hunter from the 90's, Knee Deep?

    Looking for information or images on Knee Deep. He's retired, 24 yrs old, and was given to me. He's a very special boy and I'm very interested in his history if anyone can help. Thanks!

    Hey,

    I don't know much about the horse, but I do recall Bobbie Reber talking about him at a clinic (Don't quote me but she had some involvement with his training?)
    I don't have contact information but apparently she operates Reber Ridge Stables at Milner Downs

      Is the horse from the US or Canada?

        I remember seeing him show in the US, mostly at Indoors, in (I think) the junior hunter division.

        Very nice horse. Glad to hear he has a nice retirement home with somebody who appreciates him.

          He is from Canada. He is such a sweet and special boy...so gentle and friendly and of course still very fancy and a beautiful mover. I'm so proud to call him mine. Thanks for any input you have

              The Knee Deep I remember was chestnut with a white face and four high socks.

                Chewy is his barn name...he's chestnut with 3 socks and a blaze. He had an eye removed because of complications with moon blindness years ago.

                  Didn't the Kennedy girl show him in the junior hunters in the mid to late 90"s? I remember him as super fancy over fences and with those white socks up front, he was such an eye catcher! Glad to know he has a good home. He earned it!

                    I'm almost positive there is a
                    photo of Knee Deep in Randy Roy's book Made In Canada. I lost the book a few years ago but someone here may have a copy and be able to scan it.

                      I think a rider with Heritage had a Knee Deep - maybe Mary Daly Pattee?

                        Wow! A picture of him would be amazing! I have never seen him with both eyes. If anyone could help with that, I'd be so appreciative. I want something to hang in my barn Yes, I've read that Kennedy Prentiss rode him, as well as Mary Daily Pattee...but can't find any pictures online.

                          I thought Knee Deep ended up in Maureen Murphy's barn in GA toward the end of his career, but unfortunately Maureen passed away a few years ago, so I'm not sure that's much help (one of her students rode him)
                          Your crazy is showing. You might want to tuck that back in.

                            Yes, you're exactly right...he was at Maureen's barn and when she passed away, her friend took care of him until I came along. I'm now trying to get my hands on the book by Randy Roy. I want to try to order it online since he writes about my boy. I'm not having any luck with it, though.

                                PP, I don't think Randy does write about your boy. The book is about horses and ponies that sold from Canada to the US. I'm quite sure Knee Deep's photo is included, along with many others, of successful Canucks.

                                    I just leafed through Randy Roy's other three books, and didn't see Knee Deep in there. The only one of his collection that I don't have is Made in Canada.

                                      thanks for checking! I saw the book on ebay...I'll probably buy it today.

                                        I used to show against Knee Deep in the Juniors in the '90s... It would have been in the '94-'96 range. Big chestnut with 3 or 4 huge stockings, a white face, and I think a maybe a splotch on his belly? When I showed against him he was with Mary Dailee Pattie (sp, sorry I think that is really wrong), but I vaguely remember her buying him from someone towards the beginning of those years - he already WAS a horse before she had him. I remember him well as he was one of my favourites that I showed against and, while I'm not sure I would even know where to begin to look, I probably have photos of him somewhere because he was also one of my mother's faves and she would take pictures of him. Beautiful horse, great jump. Glad to know he's got a happy life somewhere.
