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!

    We use to hack all the way over to the Wilton Riding club to show and then hack back home that night. We got to ride in the New Canaan Parades. What FUN !!!!!!!
    The went on to ORHC, Patty had the horse named Pete. Patty was my Maid of Honor at my wedding 46 years ago. She is now down in Southern Pines.
    I remember Pete! Yes, Mr Buttercup, who would occasionally get, um, turned on, and would bang against jump OUCH!
    The parades were a blast. Somewhere I have a picture of me on Lord Byron, waiting in the parking lot behind the movie theatre for the parade to start.

    Carol Wilson's mother was my 3rd grade teacher, and I vaguely remember Toby. Gincy, on the other hand, was my hero then. Loved watching her school Sari in hand, teaching her Piaffe and passage, Do you remember Mighty Mite, Diabolo?

    Sunnyfield was the place of my introduction to dressage. My sister lessoned there when Karen MacIntosh was preparing for the Olympics. Sis rode with Fritz Stecken, I believe. I remember all the Lippizaners there.

    Love reading all the memories on this thread!

      showed in the 70s and 80s in Atlanta

      Mr Pounds had wonderful shows at his barn and he had a very "unique" panel that he put in a class once. My horse was the only one who would jump it....all the others quit. Needless to say he had to remove it.

      I wish I had a pic but it was a raging bull blowing smoke! The horses FREAKED....

      HA HA....AHHHHHHHHH the good ole days
      The rider casts his heart over the fence,
      the horse jumps in pursuit of it.

          Lake Placid jumps. . .

          I was at a Pony Club A hopeful (I passed) clinic at Jessica Randenhouse's (with George Morris and Kip Rosenthal) the summer of the first Lake Placid Big show (1970?). All the rails and standards for the Grand Prix where there being painted in pastel colors (by us). The panels had been painted by some artist. They looked like someone had just thrown paint at them so we threw some more. . .

          oh well.

          in the evening after the work was done, we would get on our horses in halters and lead ropes and jump the courses we had done earlier in the day when no one was watching. . .

                Silly, you were probably one of the older riders, because both Carol Wilson and Patty were big high school people when I was just a 12 yr old or so.

                Small world - and the rides at Hoyt's were definitely part of the memories.

                Did you live in New Canaan? PM me!

                  Hay!!!

                  Oh my God a bunch of memories:

                  I remember showing at Fox Hill, that's where I got my first blue, and I rode with Linda Jasquiel Brown at Sunnyfield.

                  Minthillfarm: I worked for Kent Jungherr when he moved to Orange County NY and had a boarding facility for Standardbred broodmares. That was 1982 -ish. He is still in this area. We moved to Orange COunty NY from Westchester in 1980. He's the one I worked for that he had to replace me with 2 1/2 employees. He was a GREAT boss. Really left me alone to plan my day and do what I needed to do. No nitpicking just let me do my job. I think he is transporting horses now and buying horses from Europe with his brother and reselling them over here ... to all you Warmblood buyers out there...

                  Janet: Reiner Nievisch, wasn't his farm called Clover Knoll or Hill? The farm in Bedford. What a wonderful place and I think I learned the most from him in regards to grooming, cleaning and keeping the place spic and span.

                  Do you all remember that large tack store in Bedford or Bedford Hills called Horse & Rider? I can't remember where that place was located except that my mother would drop me off there, do her shopping and then pick me up. I would spend hours poking through everything dreaming...I'm sure the owner of the store hated me. I never bought anything...

                  Does anyone remember Mrs. Sheila Adams of Chestnut Bay Stables in South Salem or maybe NOrth Salem?
                  Sorry! But that barn smell is my aromatherapy!

                    I knew Reiner, he used to manage my old boss's private stable, knew his ex Lucy too, she was at the Rockefellers I think riding dressage. This was back in the early-mid 1980s.

                      Actually Catamount Hunt Club was not called Huntover. Mike Heneghan moved all his horses over there when Sunnyfield (where we had been staying) was sold to Neilsens. His business was Huntover and he leased an aisle from CHC. Probably '76?

                      I remember Horse & rider in Bedford but alas can not remember the name of the road...but I could drive there!

                      My first horse I did combined training with at first and then switched to Hunters. Rode out bareback and halter alot and he was the best trail horse. He was Nationally ranked at 3rd level Dressage the same year he qualified for NY in the A/O's. Not in todays world.

                        The '70s and '80s was my era in Conn. I also rode many Tbs.

                        And how about the saddles? I still have my old potato-chip saddle -- talk about "close contact"! It's an antique!

                        I remember how I loved to watch Leslie (Burr) Howard ride in jumper classes; she was probably only about 18 or so.

                        We used to go to shows at The Hill (since someone mentioned it earlier).

                          It was on Adams Street in Bedford Hills. It was about halfway between the train station in Bedford Hills and Harris Road.

                            There was a tack shop there back in the early 60's but I don't remeber the name of it.

                              LOVE that picture!!! Have one from there at the old Timonium Race Track from the early 60's too. What a great show with it in the infield. It had the old time outside course I was in elementary school and for some reason fascinated by the stables at the racetrack.

                                We were at Catamount before that.
                                People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly... timey wimey... stuff.

                                    Yes, Kent would be great to work for, and he really appreciated hard work - he grew up that way. He just wanted everything neat! He always had a broom in his hand at CHS...I was at the STBred farm in Goshen a few times in the 80's after he bought it. CHS was not the same after he and Mark left. When it got sold it was run into the ground and neglected...it was finally torn down some years ago and there are homes there now I think.

                                      Horse and Rider was in Bedford Hills.

                                      I do not remember the name of the street, but MAD's "Adams Street" sounds right.

                                      You head north from the train station, parallel to the train tracks and the parkway, into a semi-industrial strip. There was the place that they stored the snow plows and so on, and had fuel for all the Town of Bedford equipment. Horse and Rider was right next to a car body shop.

                                      If you kept going north on that street, you would get to the women's prison, and the north end of Harris Street.

                                      My social studies teacher, Mr Hamid, moonlighted (moonlit?) at Horse and Rider, which was kind of wierd. He went on to become a breeder in CT (Norman horses).

                                      But does anyone remember the tack shop that was in Mt Kisco before that. I want to say "The Silver Bit", but I could be completely wrong. They sold both riding stuff and ballet stuff. Then they stopped selling the riding stuff (probably because Horse and Rider was cheaper and had a bigger selection), but continued with ballet.

                                      Not specifically horse related, but who remembers "The Bedford Barn" on North Bedford Rd? I still have some clothes from there, but they are pretty well worn.
