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!

  • Photos of old hunters: Art Project Help


    I am a senior in high school and where most seniors taking AP art classes are finishing up their college portfolio, I never even chose my concentration because I opted not to take art freshman year. However, I am in the honors class that is generally for juniors, and they are choosing their concentrations for their portfolio's next year.

    Listening to their brainstorming made me want to make a small portfolio of my own, simply to have projects to due in my spare time, so I jotted down some ideas and came up with one I really liked: Hunters Through the Decades.

    Here's where I am hoping some of you could help me: I am looking for photos of top hunters through the decades. I wasn't sure where to start, I was thinking 60's or 70's, and I'm not sure how many I will do per decade, that would depend on how many I can find for each, since I'd like them to be equal. I'd like to do at least two per decade, up through present day, so 2011-2013 would be the last bracket I do.

    If any of you have photos that you might be able to send to me (via PM or posting) I'd greatly appreciate it! Also, any suggestions of horses to look up if you think they fit the bill. I know I definitely want to include Rox Dene and Ozcar, but other than that I'll admit I don't know many! Any help is greatly appreiated, and I'll be posting the finished projects as I complete them for sure.

    There is a Facebook group called Equestrians From Back In The Day as well as a FB page for the USHJA Wheeler Museum. Both will have plenty of photos for you. Some of my favorites :

    -Sign The Card
    -Touch The Sun
    -Henry The Hawk
    -Stocking Stuffer
    -Early Light
    -Riot Free
    -Market Street
    -Market Rise
    -Rain Forest

    I could go on, and on.....

        You might go even further back (50s/60s) and show the change in style, type of horse, dress, tack....

          Yes, when I originally came up with the idea I planned on starting with the 50's to show just that! It all depends on how many pictures I can dig up, but I'd love to start with the 50's.

          Also thank you, oldgreymare, for your recommendations! I'll check out those FB pages when I get home later today.

            There's a beautiful photo of the conformation hunter Cap and Gown (jumping) in William Steinkraus' Riding and Jumping. There are plenty of copies floating around.

              COTH did a photo gallery of the "Chronicle through the Ages" or something like that, I think it had a few hunter pictures from different ages scattered through it (if I remember correctly.)

                Rox Dene from the 90's...such a classic, elegant hunter.

                **Oops! That'll teach me to post before reading the full OP! You already mention her

                  Found it! It starts in the 1930s and 1940s and there are certainly hunter pictures: http://www.chronofhorse.com/photos_v...e=21&nid=34984

                  1950s doesn't have hunter pictures, but 1960s has quite a few: http://www.chronofhorse.com/photos_v...e=19&nid=35479

                  1970s doesn't have hunters either but here is 1980s: http://www.chronofhorse.com/photos_v...e=17&nid=36015

                  1990s have a picture of Rox Dene: http://www.chronofhorse.com/photos_v...e=17&nid=36050

                  And 2000s have Rumba: http://www.chronofhorse.com/photos_v...e=17&nid=36129

                    Those pictures are fabulous! I am pleased that Cap and Gown, whom I mentioned earlier, is pictured. (I also noticed an error: the caption under the picture of Greg Best and Gem Twist states that they won team and individual gold at the 1988 Olympics. I believe those medals were silver.) The picture of Bill Steinkraus is gorgeous.

                    Anyone notice the ditch in the 1950s collection?

                      Strapless is also a good one, can't quite remember her era...late 90s, early 2000s?

                        Thanks for those links, Rel6. I knew the Chronicle put those pictures up but I was having trouble finding them. Bookmarked it!

                        Dewey, I have that book. I'll take a look through it later, I completely forgot about it, it has some gorgeous pictures in there.

                        Took a look at the "Equestrians from Back in the Day" FB and found some great pictures to use! Starting to get a collection going for each decade. Feel free to keep the name suggestions coming through, if you have a favorite horse you feel should be included. Really excited to start this project.
