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!

  • Katie Prudent

    For a long time I nothing heard or read about the awesome Katie Prudent.
    Where is she now. Is she still competing? Is there a clinic with her? Where I can find photos or articles? I like her riding style.
    Thank you in advance

    Are you the person who pm'd me a few years ago looking for pictures of Katie after I'd taken pix at the clinic she did at Columbia?

      Doesn't she come to the US every winter (I think she has a VA base)and compete in FL and then back to France for the rest of the year? That's what she had been doing although I haven't heard anything about her recently.


      • #4
        She was at the Duke Horse Show in Raleigh in the beginning of November. I had never had the opportunity to see her ride before. Let me just say, I was in awe.... If I ever ride half that well, I'll be in good shape!

        I don't know anything about her schedule for the rest of the year, but I do know that she was in the States as of a few weeks ago.

            She stayed in Raleigh after the Duke Children's show for the UNC show the next week. She rode absolutely beautifully as always. I would love to have just a whisper of her talent!

              My dad got a brochure from the AMEX people that they send to rich white guys with different "adventures". Drive a racecar, etc etc. Mixed in was a week with Katie at her farm in NoVA- I hope for her sake no one signed up.

                Katie is simply one of the very the best American lady rider.
                She is also one of the very best teachers.

                  I just took a clinic with her. She's going to WEF this year as usual too.


                  • #10
                    She is also doing a clinic this weekend:

                      They stayed over here this year (Henri went back for awhile, but Katie stayed) and are still here. Their farm is in Middleburg, literally within the city limits, and is beautiful. They were both in Raleigh.

                      If you ever get a chance to ride with Katie, for heaven's sake, jump on it. GM will tell you that she is one of his two favorites and has the wonderful combination of enormous talent coupled with an almost overpowering drive to succeed. She is tough but fair.

                      If she were ever to get a really top horse again, she would be hard to beat...


                      • #12
                        I had a short chat with her in the grocery store line about a month ago, haha. That was before Raleigh, though.

                          katie and henri along with their students showed on long island this summer at sagaponack and a few other shows. I was shooting their ring for a local photographer at that show, what a thrill to watch them ride in person on the young horses.

                            She was my idol growing up and I still admire her riding skills to this day.
                            I remember when they used to show lots of the Grand Prixs on tv and would tape them and watch them over and over. I absolutely loved Noren! What a beautiful horse!

                              Katie Prudent is a perfect horsewoman. Her dynamic riding style, her in- depth knowledge and her candid character makes Katie very popular.

                                doesn't she own Plain Bay Farm out in Middleburg??

                                  That is her US base, I don't know who owns it.

                                    Yes, Katie owns it (and has for at least 15 years). She bought it while she was training Elise Haas and Alison Firestone.

                                      The 'Plain Bay' was The Governor. The Governor was named after Averill Harriman.

                                        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.
