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!

    JANET, YES it was the Silver Bit. Say when were you in Mount Kisco/Bedford? Did you go to Greeley? I lived there until from 1966 - 1977, then we moved to South Salem and then to Orange COunty NY. Maybe I knew you?
    Sorry! But that barn smell is my aromatherapy!

      Reiner Nievisch was way neater than Kent Jungherr. Kent was neat but Reiner was exceptional.

          We moved to Bedford (Guard Hill Rd, across from Tanrackin) in 65. My father still lives there (just), but I went off to college in '71.

          We (my sister Gillian and I) went to Fox Lane, but I had a bunch of good friends that went to Greeley- Patty Peckham and Mary Link in particular.

            Janet, do you know Frank and Catherine Heller and their 7 (or is it 9) daughters? They lived on Guard Hill Road for many years, when I knew them it was from 1981 to about 1996.

            The Heller place was called Blanchland I think.

              By 1981 I was in Virginia. The name Blanchard does not really ring a bell.

              But there was a family with LOTS of girls that lived at Ensign Farm (had an anchor at the end of the driveway). And they MIGHT have been "Heller". They went to Catholic school, but rode the same school bus, and there was one my age I regularly sat with. I can see her, but I can't remember her name. They lived near the sculptor Joseph McDonnell (but on the other side of the road). At least once, the "Lighthouse for the Blind" was at their place, and we did a musical ride.

                That might be them, they were definitely Catholics. At one time before I met them the family had a large farm in Bedford and they kept horses, possibly racehorses, but by the 80's they had downsized and Blanchland was only a few acres. It was a beautiful home, not small by my family's standards. I can't remember the names of any of the girls except the youngest, who was Sarah. Its horrible that my memory is now so bad.

                    Probably the same family, they had horses on the farm, but, AFAIK, the girls did not ride much.

                      I just can't remember. Sarah, the youngest would be at least 26 now, same age as my boss' youngest son, which is the only way I can remember. I don't think any of them rode when I knew them, although I only had limited involvement, mostly social occasions, and that was with the parents. The daughters' names were mentioned frequently though, if only I could remember. I think the family's involvement with horses was mostly through racing. They did have Stubbs paintings and other horsey motifs in the decorating theme of their house though.

                        Susan Heller is not related.
                        I went to St. Pat's with Lilly and keep in touch with Fella a little. There are 9 girls.

                              Maryland Pony Show

                              Does anyone remember the Maryland Pony Show when it was held in the infield at Timonium Racetrack? Heaven help you if you had an OTTB!!!!

                              The one I rode in the 70's was so hot in the schooling ring that half the riders would flee when they saw her coming. And yet she would win the class once she got in the ring - or the outside course!

                              Pairs classes, hunt teams, really challenging Jr equitation classes where you had to switch horses, outside courses, Knock Down and Out jumper classes at the local shows, the good old days!

                                        California Memories

                                        Rode in Malibu from the mid 60's to 1973. The local ETI corral initially had one LA County rated show a year, back in the days when it was essentially all western with two english flat classes. We sure thought those people had really fancy horses. My mom took over running the shows and ran a number of rated shows at Crummer Field in Malibu. The group was ousted, allegedly so a developer could develop something, but the land still sits there with no buildings in sight. I remember Larry Langer when he trained part time and had a day job (as an aerospace engineer, IIRC) and wore blue jeans and white tennis shoes.

                                        There was a GP at the Rose Bowl. There was also one inland in San Diego someplace that I remember going to watch.

                                        Remember the Forum shows?

                                        • I feel like I must know everyone on this thread! I rode with Nimrod from 1969 to 1977. It is true, that my horse, 20th Century, Ltd was a fabulous mover, but in 1976 when one still just counted blues to get into New York, we qualified with more blue ribbons than any other horse entered in the horse show. They weren't just hack classes as he was A/O HOTY that year. After I went out on my own, I was at Coach House as trainer and Kent's girlfriend. From there, I went to Boulder Brook for a few years and then to Shannon. While I was trainer at Shannon, Patty Peckham was manager and we are still dear friends.

                                          My first riding instructor was Dick Ulrich, round about 1960, when he and Julie were in Dennis, Ma. I grew up on Cape Cod and rode at a number of barns there before going to Nimrod.

                                          My mother ran the Cape Cod Horse Show and I have lots of stories from those years. That show was so much fun! Lots of crazy stuff went on there every year.

                                          Barney Ward and Ronnie Mutch were best friends, and Barney even lived at Nimrod for a while. I have known Mclain since he was born. Many of you may not know that Mclain has a baby brother. Barney and his wife have a five year old son, Dillon.

                                          Years later, I leased 25 stalls at Old Salem, and ran my business, Grand Central from there between 1987 and 1996. I had the best of all worlds, as I married the owner and still had my own business. We sold Old Salem in 2002 and now have a breeding farm in North Salem.

                                          I have memories of almost everything that you all have discussed that happened on the East Coast!!
