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!

  • Looking for Jim and Faye Little

    Jim and Faye Little were my teachers in my last year of riding in Chevy Chase, Md. in 1968. I would love to know where they are and thank them, if anyone knows. They left Chevy Chase sometime after '68 for Middleburg and then I lost track. They owned Pegasus Stables from about '67 to the mid 70's or later. Anyone know anything? Thanks.

    They may have gone to Fl but am not sure. You might try contacting someone at Meadowbrook Stables. Claude's bench is firmly planted in the ground at Meadowbrook.

      Me, too

      I worked at Pegasus/Meadowbrook in that same time frame and would also love to know anything about the current whereabouts of Jim & Faye.

        I don't know how to send private messages, which I see on here sometimes, but I bet we know each other, showbraidingmom. I'd love to be in touch with someone from the old days. My name is Lisa Young and I rode at Pegasus from 1957 to 1968.

          They did move to Florida. I know two people who were at that barn at that time... one is still very much in touch with the Littles. My PM box here is full, but if you all email me at autumnhillfarm(at)msn(dot)com I'll try to put you all in touch with each other.

          I've been rather awestruck over the years by the strong sense of family that seemed to pervade that barn.

            My dad is the blacksmith for Mrs. Little. Mr Little died a few years back. If you click on my name, there will be a way to send a message and my dad could give Mrs. Little your information. He says she still ponies the racehorses she trains and still jumps!

              So, you rode there while Fen Kollock still owned Pegasus? I did too - just for a year or two. Ginger Koehler was my name then. My favorite horses were Andy and Sun Daddy. What about you? Did you know David Bradley, too?

                Pegasus Meadowbrook 60s 70s

                Just found this string searching for Jim and Faye. They were certainly essential to my well-being once upon a time. Along with Claude. My brother, sister and I were working students at the end of the 60s, early 70s, and we kept a horse there for a while as well.

                My favorite school horse was the lovely chestnut Leaflet. Anyone remember her? She wore a veil all summer for sensitive nose syndrome...

                I hadn't been back in 35+ years until today when I went with husband and mother to revisit old times. According to the charming young woman having her lunch, Jim Little (son) had JUST been there looking around. Can't believe we missed him.

                My google search was very unproductive re Faye. Glad to see that someone posted her doing well and continuing to ride.

                It would be wonderful to read more about Meadowbrook (guess they dropped the Pegasus a long time ago). Particularly from people who are riding now.

                  I absolutely remember Leaflet!!! I wouldn't have actually recognized the name but once you mentioned the sensitive nose syndrom, I certainly can picture her in my mind wearing that veil! Pegasus went out of business some time ago. I was saddened when I went back to the area in the early 90's to see it was overgrown and just being used for storage.

                        Was Blackjack a boarder or a school horse?

                          Ha! The Farnley ponies, So-So, Trademark - yes indeed :-) Don't personally remember Glory Bee (was she by any chance a white App?), Year of Grace, or The Elite. Wasn't Rushcutter the big chestnut TB that Faye rode sometimes at the shows? I *think* Blackjack was a school horse. And Carmen was a very, very old toddle-along bright/red chestnut school horse - back in the mid 60's she was probably in her late 20's. She was the ultimate "beginner" horse, very happy to be ridden along in a halter and a rope! She was one of the horses that loved to swim in the deep hole in Rock Creek behind Meadowbrook barn (down from Cinder Track).

                          And a correction to the stable workers' names - it was "John" (not James) who wore glasses... really nice man and good groom!

                          Thanks for the trip down memory lane - it's been many years ago, but still happy times come to mind ;-)

                            Blackjack belonged to Pegasus and was retired in the care of Myfida Bell. He was easily the best pony I ever rode. I got to show him for 2 or 3 years in the sixties.
                            I have a list of all the Pegasus horses I got to ride which I found in one of my childhood horse books. When I can bring it to light again I'll post the names. I left in 1968 to go to college so some of the names and ownerships are different.
                            I got to start Acrobat- was the first to ride him. Jamie showed him in pony jumpers.
                            The grooms at Pegasus were Lester and Charlie.

                              David Bradley is now owner of Meadowbrook Stables - well Maryland Parks and Planning owns the property but he runs the stables - he's pretty silent on it but did massive renovations to the place several years ago. WBTA still has their horse shows there

                                faye little

                                Jim passed away some years ago. Faye is at present in Clinton, N.C., helping care for her brother. Her e-mail address is - faye7982@aol.com. I just had supper with Dee Chalaron who taught at P-M Stables at the same time I was there teaching. We were discussing the Peg. and Mead. Stables and what was going on in 2013. Therefore, I was looking up the stables and found the question of the Littles location. James (young) lives in Alaska and works for some air cargo company. Brooke (younger daughter) is working with an unusual breed of horse. Think she is in Fla. Faye can enlighten you. I am hunting for one instructor that was at P-M Stables at this time and then went to teach at Goucher College (sp?) in the 70's. Janet McBrian????? She had a huge chestnut horse that she did some vaulting on. Thanks.

                                      Thank you! Someone gave me a phone number, but I felt shy about calling. I've sent her an email and I hope I'll hear back, but even if I don't, I've gotten to tell her how grateful I am. Thanks again.

                                        I do have some pictures. I'll get them together and post them here, and I hope you and others will too.
