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.

  • Can We Play Antique Roadshow with this horse jumping lamp?

    So, I found this antique/vintage lamp with a foxhunter and strirrup on it (see photo) and thought it was interesting and picked it up. Does anyone recall when these were made or who made them? It also has a horse shoe finnial on top that I've cut off in the photo. Any information would be appreciated.

      The shape and design of the lamp itself looks early 1960s to me, maybe late 1950s. And the horse and rider are very retro as well. Could be that old or could be retro design--did you flip it over to see if there are any "Made in" marks or patent numbers or anything on the bottom of the base? Is there an electrical cord and does it work? What's it made of?

        It's not worth anything at all. It's just taking up space. I'd be glad to take it off your hands.

        Seriously though, thought I recognized it and here is something very similar: http://www.millbrookgalleryandantiqu...ions/cary.html (you have to scroll over the photo links on right side of page).

          From the discussions tab... I read only the first part of the tab, "Can We Play Antique Roadshow with this horse..."

          Looks like the link above shows a pretty good base of what you could have in terms of maker and value. Perhaps the shade is not original though?

            I didn't see anything immediately as to maker's mark. I will give it a closer one over. Base looks original, shade is new. It works-looks to have original cord. Can't decide if it's cool and I'm keeping it yet or not-I sort of found it 'out of place' and didn't want to let it get away, but wasn't really sure what I'd found.

                  The horse is the same as a hood ornament that was very popular in the50's and 60's. I have one of those tucked away somewhere. Neat looking lamp.

                    haha,,,, it could easily be.

                    i don't like the shade. it needs a barrel shape and something like a hunter green or burgundy.

                      If you'd like to make it your own, you can put whatever shade catches your fancy on it. Mr. REH would be totally happy if someone stole it before it takes up permanent residence in our home--I'm sure he'll barter with you while I'm out of the house I'm half expecting him to start buying football and basketball home accessories to counteract all my horse clutter.

                        Cute lamp. What does the plug on the electrical cord look like? Does it have a larger blade on one side than the other? The larger blade was made mandatory in 1962, allowing the lamp to only be plugged into the socket one way. Many companies were already changing over in the 1950's. If the lamp has a plug with two similar size blades....probably late 40's early 50's.

                          It has one bigger sized blade. HuntingCreek, that's very interesting--amazing what people know around here!

                          I turned it about last night and found no maker's mark on it. I could "unscrew" the metal man and see if there's a mark on the part attached to the base, but nothing is visible as assembled.

                            I love that lamp and would snap it up if I saw it in a shop somewhere! I actually have a napkin holder that is very similar!

                            To me, it looks like the base (stirrup and jumping horse) is original and something happened to the stirrup leather/buckle post and the original shade and someone along the line took pieces and a shade from another lamp and put together what you have. I think this is frequently done in resale and restoration/antiques. It is still really nice, that picture submitted in one of the earlier posts just seems more like what the original must have looked like.

                            You have a good eye! You know, they just don't make stuff like what you have anymore... why don't you keep it?


                            • Original Poster

                              It looks to me like everything is original except for the lamp shade.

                              I will probably keep it...I'm mostly teasing because my husband's eyes keep bugging out at all the random horse stuff I keep bringing home. He's a minimalist and I am, well, um, not.
