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!

  • Chance of Flurries/Hope Glynn? Anyone know about this horse?

    Hi there,
    I've been reading COTH for a while, and I found myself looking through photos of the $50,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby at the Hampton Classic and saw a picture of this horse with Hope Glynn and was curious how he is bred. Does anyone know?
    I'm not much of a color guru, but I'm pretty smitten with his color. I tried to find his sire/dam on USEF, but to no avail.
    I feel silly making a topic, but no one at the barn has ever heard of this horse, so I assumed that this would be a good place to start.
    I just think this horse looks fantastic!

    Thanks

          That web site says you must sign in and I can't get any other pictures of him to come up in a Google search. Any ideas? Tx.

            I had never heard of him until I saw him compete in the Hunter Derby at the Hampton Classic last weekend. My friend and I fell in love with him, a very nice horse and rider too.

                Pretty horse! Looks to me like it might be a rabicano a genetic condition where the flanks and top of the tail gradually go grey.

                  Lovely looking horse.

                  Now I am super curious to find out its breeding, because its coloring and even jump style remind me quite a bit of my horse...

                  Somerset has high/jagged whites, a blaze, and the rabicano roaning all over too!

                    Thanks for the link, Lee. Gorgeous horse.

                    Now, OMG, who teaches Hope Glynn? How Soft, Fluid, Kind, . . . of a rider.

                    What else does this this rider do?

                              I would love to have a rabicano. I'm not a color snob, but that coloring would be especially amazing.

                              Thanks LeeB10 for the link. I actually went to her website originally to see if they had his breeding listed...and then I got distracted by a plethora of MORE lovely horses

                              I actually walked out an in-gate once while Hope was sending a client into the ring. From what I've seen of Hope, she is very kind and the type of trainer I'd ride with. She is also an exceptional rider.

                                I am *not* a color expert, but IIRC rabicano appears in bay horses. Chance of Flurries appears to be simply, and adorably, roan. The strawberry variety, since the base coat is chestnut.
                                Patience pays.

                                  My horse is chestnut and there's no genetic basis for him to be true roan. But plenty of horses by the stallion (bay and chestnut) are rabicano. I've never heard anyone say before that rabicano appears only on bay base coats.

                                    Hope trains the young lady that owns Flurry. I get to see this horse go all the time in the hunter ring at the Sonoma Horse Park. He is to die for perfect in the ring! He just goes around like a dream! I have seen the owner and Hope go on him what seems like hundreds of times. They always come to the SHP shows as their barn is very close by.

                                    Hope is a spectacular rider! I have seen her win 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th places on different horses in one Hunter Classic! She spends quite a bit of time in the winners circle! She is not only talented she is a lovely person! Sweet and very humble.

                                    Flurry is a fab horse, I will ask Hope next week what his background and breeding is and report back to you folks. If I remember correctly I witnessed his owner getting a 93 from the judge in a hunter classic last season! The announcer was like "are you sure" then announced it! I watched the round and it truly was almost perfect!

                                    As far as his color, he really is a big chestnut with a strange splash of white under his belly that goes up the side of his barrel. It looks like he stomped through a puddle of white paint! I've pinned ribbons on him and he isn't a roan, I will look closely again next week and let you know what Hope has to say about him. Better yet I will show Hope this thread and have her answer directly. Probably Tuesday or Wednesday at the show when I can corner her.

                                        I used to work right along side Hope. Several trainers in one barn. She is a elegant rider thats for sure! This was many years ago when she had just turned Pro. Im glad to see she is still doing really well. Her students have really come along well. She is really sweet and super nice, not to mention one heck of a great hunter rider/trainer. Hope is a breath of fresh air in a world of pissy, nasty, aggressive trainers who scream and yell at their students from dawn till dusk. I don't think I've ever seen Hope get mad or lose her temper =)
