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!

          I am looking for those that competed USEF. I am not sure if the already mentioned horses did. If they did,then I apologize, as I am not a h/j person.

            • #7
              I'm not entirely sure if the ones I mentioned competed USEF. Perhaps someone else can answer that, along with the following ones I've found:
              Luke At Me
              Coats N Tails
              Skys Blue Boy
              Natural Iron

              Hope this is somewhat helpful

                Wrapped in Red certainly competed in USEF shows, I am not familiar with the others.


                • #9
                  Of all the horses mentioned only Wrapped in Red showed at regular AHSA/USEF shows. The rest are famous on the AQHA circuit.

                    ALtho not a hunter but a jumper, Threes and Sevens was a pretty famous QH that made it to the top!

                        Ditto for Rub the Lamp, IIRC. He was champion at Harrisburg in his day.

                          Movin Artfully and Shes Got The Blue, both are multiple World Champions and also show successfully at the big A shows out here.

                          There are quite a few QH's that show successfully at AQHA and USEF, in some areas it can be hard to find AQHA shows with over fences classes, so lots show USEF. Lainie DeBoer is a well known AQHA trainer who shows her horses on the USEF circuit, and does very well!

                              I had a lovely horse named Rugged Reindeer by a son of Rugged Lark. He was champion numerous times in the 3' adults starting as a 4 year old in Palm Beach, and anywhere else he went ( early 90's). I sold him to a very nice family in New York where the mom, the son and the daughter were all champion many times ( over many years) in their respective divisions at the Hampton Classic. I doubt that he is still alive, but had a long happy life. I believe he would be as successful today as he was then. A very well known judge/ trainer came over to me after he won a few classes at Palm Beach and drawled " I love that horse. When he goes around, the jumps aren't in the way, they are 'on the way' ". Still one of my favorite compliments ever about one of my horses.
                              An interesting aside; I bought him from the vet in Miami who became famous for riding farm to farm in Homestead, FL after the big hurricane ('93?) on her horse ( Reindeer's relative) with medical supplies in her saddle bag as the roads were impassable.

                                I actually judged Wrapped in Red w/ Mary Lisa Nicholson at Congress one year in the big hunter classic. That was a very nice horse.

                                      The stallion Regal Lark (son of Rugged Lark) was reserve Super Horse at the AQHA World show, won or placed in all the hunter and hack classes there, then went directly to the AA Circuit shows and was champion in the 1st and 2nd year Greens all with Shane George. He pretty much showed in the same frame for both. Shane George trained many others to win in both arenas before he quit showing himself. Too many to remember.
                                      Chiparrific, owned and riden by Kimberly Wang Dey was one.

                                      David Connors of New Jersey shows all of his clients' horses on both circuits.
                                      Ditto Lainie DeBoer.

                                      Cactus Jack, a registered QH from Colorado ( Randy Henry, Winsome Farm, trainer), was Ammy Owner champion at Washington Intl, but never showed AQHA that I know of.

                                      I don't believe any of these did the fences at all, although Skys Blue Boy has become a leading sire of fence horses, as is Artful Move, who did do the fences.

                                      'One For The Record' was the most amazing mare.. I watched her come around the corner, look at the line, adjust her stride, and go, while her rider just sat chilly. Made me go and breed two by her sire, Swift Solo.

                                        Thing is, many horses are not shown under the registered name so it's hard to pinpoint. I have known of hunters who have been QH or appendixes and done well, but not sure what their registered names are.
