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!

  • Stars with Horses....

    Hey I was just thinking of this while putting off my homework [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]
    What movie stars, famous Hollywood actors have horses? I know William Shatner (Capt. Kirk) breeds and shows Saddlebreds. Patrick Stewart (Capt. Picard) - (can you tell I like Star Trek? ;-) ), also rides and has even been shown riding in his role as Capt. Picard.
    Who else???
    p.s. this is more fun than homework! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]
    You'd think I'd know better.

      Patrick Swayze and his wife have Arabians, I believe. I saw him ride on some maybe OLN show and he was very good and really seemed to adore the horses.

      And who can forget Bo Derek on the Andulusian (sp?) for an exhibition at one of the indoors many moons ago.

      I believe Richard Gere and Julia Roberts ride too (and not just in the movies). You got to believe that Robert Redford probably has horses too.

        Yes, Richard Gere rides. He has a farm someplace in northern Westchester, NY (a kid from my barn worked there last summer).

        I'm not sure whether Julia Roberts rides now, but the riding scenes in one of her recent movies (I can't think of which one at the moment) were filmed at Lionshare Farm in Greenwich, CT. It's Peter Leone's place and it's absolutely gorgeous.

        For those of you in NY, Robin whose last name I can't remember at the moment who is Howard Stern's partner on his morning radio show took up riding a few years ago and has competed at the celebrity class at the National a couple of times.

        Linda Blair, star of "The Exorcist" for those of you old enough to remember, rode and competed as a child and I think still rides today. I remember her having an absolutely gorgeous bay pony hunter.

        I think Wayne Newton has Arabians and also for some reason remember Victoria Principal having some involvement with horses.

          Not a movie star, but a celebrity- Shania Twain rides and I even heard that she couldn't stand to be away form her horse for long periods of time when she is touring, so on occassion, he travels with her.


          • #6
            One more.
            Not a movie star, but a politician.
            Governor Christine Whitman of New Jersey is a rider. I believe that she fox hunts regularly and I saw her ride at Festival of Champions in the Celebrity class. Robin Quivers (Howard Sterns sidekick) was one of the others. Unfortunately, I can't remember the other celebrities (I know one was a soap star).


            • #7
              Michael Douglas has a place out here that accomodates horses (never been close enough to see if there are actually any there though...), Rick Schroeder has a big ranch in western CO, and I assume he has horses on it. Don Henley and Don Johnson had horses when they lived here, they've since moved away.

                  Joan Lunden shows. Remember the Don Henley song "Dirty Laundry," with the line "the bubble-headed bleach blonde who comes on at five?" Christine Lund; she shows in So Cal (usually B show). Michael Ovitz's daughter, Steve Bond, actually there are masses of "stars" who show. Or ride. Lots of shows at LAEC have a big celebrity riding contingent.


                  • #10
                    Joan Lundon and her daughter both ride, jamie recently got hurt in FL. also Bruce Springsteen rides western, his wife patty rides hunters with Beacon Hill, Sting rides, Tommy Lee Jones plays polo, Kelly Klein (ex wife of Calvin) shows in the hunters, Just about everybody loves our sport....!


                    • #11
                      I've got a few more:

                      Authors Rita May Brown and Jane Smiley.

                      Pop singer Jewel.

                      Sting was married on horseback.

                      Wayne Newton has arabs and race horses.

                      Pavorotti (sp?) has horses and actually helped susbsidise the WEG's in his native Italy by holding a benefit concert.

                      Joe Montana and his wife have horses, and in fact purchased the high money horse at on of the Oak's auction's a few years back.

                      Oliver North's daughter Tate rides.


                      • #12
                        I saw Heuy Lewis at Indio this year (I think that his daughter rides)
                        Shannen Doherty
                        Alfre Woodard's(Scrooged, Passion Fish) daughter rides


                        • #13
                          Paul Newman's daughter use to show, so did Stanley Kramer and Leslie Nielsen's daughters. Didn't Brooke Shields use to show Hunters? Cece Durante is Jimmy's daughter and she is still training in California. Stacy VanDyke use to show Western Pleasure.

                            Joe and Jennifer Montana show hunters and jumpers and I know Joe also has competitive cutting horses. Charles Bronson's daughter also used to show(maybe still does?). And of course Teddi Jo Mellancamp (I know, not movie stars, but celebrities!).


                            • #15
                              OMG, I remember Paul Newman giving me a quarter for ice cream from the Good Humor man at Fairfield EONS ago!! I was there watching a friend ride.

                                Horse scenes in the film "Stepmom", starring Julia Roberts and Susan Sarandon, were filmed at the Nielsens beautiful Sunnyfield Farm in Bedford N.Y.

                                  Let's see who I can remember that wasn't already mentioned. Montel either Williams or Jordan, which ever one has the talk show owns hunters. And remember M.C. Hammer? well he used to own a couple of race TBs. One of them ran in the Kentucky Derby awhile back.
                                  That's all that I can remember right now

                                    Howard Stern's sidekick is Robin Givens. She rode a demo ride at the National in NYC a few years ago.

                                    John Mellencamp's daughter rides - she was at our barn when she was in Harrisburg for the PA National last Fall.

                                    I think that both Robert Duvall and Sissy Spacek have farms in VA. I read a number of years ago that Ms. Spacek had "a horse farm." I think that Ted Turner and Jane Fonda (I know, they're splitting)have horses on their ranch.

                                    Mel Gibson rides.

                                      Sorry, CWP already mentioned Mellencamp.

                                      I saw a TV interview with Kelsey Grammer and his second wife shortly after they were married. It was in front of a picture window with a view of horses in the pasture outside.

                                      I know that some famous country singers have horses. I can't remember names but more than once I've been channel surfing when the site of horses made me stop at TNN where an interview with some country-western singer was in progress and they would show the horses he had, but I never can remember who these guys are.

                                      Of course Ronald Reagan was a rider.

                                        Jenny Craig had/has race horses, she bought the English Derby winner one year, for her husband. I think she bought the horse just weeks before the race! She lives in Del Mar of course!! haha
