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!

    No, the "Plain Bay" comes from a string of plain bays, including Bullwinkle and Jonesy, that she showed in the late 70's, long before The Governor. The original Plain Bay Farm was in Upperville. She then leased stalls at the current location until it came up for sale and she bought it. I don't think, but could be wrong, that it was part of the Harriman property. It is actually located inside the city limits of M'burg, almost the last driveway (and the second coming into town) as you leave town. It is a beautiful property.
    Yes, I do remember now that it was because she seemed to have a bunch of plain bays all at one time and was reminded of that a few Aprils ago when she was doing a clinic and said to one girl, "A plain bay. You're on my favorite color of horse."

    For some reason, I thought Pam Harriman owned the Plain Bay where she is now first. But I could be wrong about that too. I do know she was in there as long as I can remember and that was easily 20 years ago.

    I ran a search and the only property I could immediately find associated with Pamela was the property bought to be the Salamander spa. The property that sits next to the Goodstone Inn.

      I may be wrong here but I think she had junior horse named Roman Be Good. Also a bay.

        Katie's junior hunter was Miltown and he was a bay. She may have had others but Miltown was very well known.

          i was fortunate to have katie as the "alternate" ride when i couldn't make it up from florida. it wasn't a secret that george LOVED it when the mare got the brilliant rides with katie on her. one year at piping rock they won every class.... katie was always so sweet and generous, and never forgot to "thank" me for the ride. she is one of the true ladies left in the biz.

          i guess riding with george didn't "ruin her release".........

            I saw her ride in the Jumper Classic at Upperville During part of the jump-off, she was standing next to me at the in-gate area for a while; I was in awe!


            • #26
              Yeah- I was trying to find informaiton on her for a while and was unsuccessful. I would love to find some kind of contact information. I was in France for a while looking for a job and someone suggested her to me, but again, I could not find any info on her.

              Can anyone lead me in the right direction?

                When I was a kid (back in the 70's), I saw an ad in PH that Katie was doing a clinic in my area. I begged my Mom and she let me bring my pony. My poor pony used to chip in because I (unknowingly) pulled on his face before every jump. During the clinic, Katie rode hmy pony and got him jumping beautifully. I'll just never forget that...Katie Monahan (at the time) rode MY pony!!!!!

                  Katie is one of the most successful showjumpers in the USA. It is incredible but Katie is ranking for more than 30 years in the world class. She was runner-up in the World Cup Final 1979.
                  A brilliant horsewoman - second to none

                    Just wanted to say that I worked for Katie for several years and she has a fantastic charisma and is good role model - both on and off the horses. I appreciate all of the help that she gave me when I was younger and must say that a large part of my life has been influenced by her and the entire Prudent family .


                    • Original Poster

                      Katie is the toughest rider in USA. She is a real champion an a real horsewoman. Currently she has a lot of new horses with high potentials.
                      Which brand are her riding boots?


                      • #31
                        She probably has both nationalities thanks to her husband Henri so she is also one of the best French riders

                          I heard that she gave up her US citizenship for a French one. Or does she still have both....?

                              OMG... I about choked on my soda when she entered the arena and I heard her name called. I was like... "Did they just announce who I thought they did?" My friend and I were completely in shock, but on the edge of our seats nonetheless. Neither of us had ever gotten the chance to see her ride in person and we were totally thrilled, as she was one of our favorite riders growing up!

                                Is she at WEF this year? Could not find her name in the rankings.

                                  Yes, they are there, I saw them in January when I was there.

                                    I saw her at WEF, riding in the 7-8 yo Young Jumper Qualifier last week.

                                      Does anyone know if she still has a line of saddles? I owned one until a year ago, when I had to sell it to my Aunt... my chunky mare had outgrown it. I believe it was called a K.M.P. (Katie Monahan Prudent) Thoroughbred Puissance CC saddle. That may or may not be in the correct order. Anyway, I was absolutely in love with that saddle and always scour the internet for one, new or used. Does anyone know anything about these saddles?

                                        Didn't read the first page, so not sure if someone has already posted, but she is doing a clinic here in Wellington to benefit 4-H on Monday Feb 16th.

                                          Katie owns Plain Bay Farm in VA and goes down to WEF through the winter then shows in Kentucky and others thru the year. My friend just bought a nice Equitation horse from her.
