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!

      It is really scary, I remember back then, but can't remember what I did an hour ago. I do remember Wendy's dad riding a chestnut horse, but do not remember which one it was.

          Periwinkle was shipped back east, IIRC, to the person who bred her. She was bred a few times, including at least once to Diamond Bracelets. I saw a photo of her with one of the foals, but don't know what happened to them or what they did.

                  Tommy Lowe rode Chantilly for years.

                  Tommy is married to Sheri (Rose) and they are still in the LA area. Sheri is at alot of the shows with Paige Irwin but we don't see Tommy very often.

                  Kid Gloves was another of his with Mohammad Ali, Silver Sterling with Veronica Ali.

                    Ah right, I remember that he is married to Shari Rose. Thanks.
                    He had quite a few nice hunters back in the 80's I remember.

                    Another nice one was Saffron, who was my horse when he first came to the states, ridden by Kristina Harrison. He was awesome in the front end when he jumped.

                      Does anybody know Perry Grey on here? I was really good friends with her as a Jr. She rode with Duncan MacFarlane back then.

                      Does she still ride?

                      I remember Nancy Vincent's hunter when I rode then... Legacy. A gray WB.

                      Does anybody remember Aloha Kid? He was a pretty nice TB gelding.

                      Of course there was Code of Honor in Arizona. He was cool in the 90's

                        Tommy Lowe is sometimes at shows in norcal with JP Training-I think he helps train at Jan Pierce's barn, or at least meets up at some of the shows.

                          Aloha Kid was Denize Borges' equitation horse wasn't he? she has a cool picture of him up in her office going over the water at the foxfield finals i believe.

                          Does anyone remember Idolized? Chestnut hunter. I remember him from when Mickey Krinsky rode him but his daughter was very successful on him when she was a junior if i remember correctly...

                            I am afraid I only know about horses that were famous BEFORE they went to the west coast, like (Spindletop) Showdown.

                            (Rider not horse in this case.) I also understand that Susie Schroer made quite a name for herself on the west coast. Somewhere at home I have a picture of her doing "up down" lessons on a VERY small pony.

                              He was at Rainbow Canyon in the 90s; I think he belonged to Courtney Justice. Very cute horse.

                                Idolized was still alive last year at Menlo. Dina showed him in the leadline with her daughter riding him. He's old, but still game. Mickey was standing there just smiling...

                                  That's right Aloha Kid was Denize Borges' horse. She started him as a 3 year old in the hunters and did the hunters and medals on him. I rode with Denize for a short time when we were younger Jrs with a barn called Rushwood back in the early 80's. She and Toni Venza rode there.

                                  Aloha Kid was sold for a nice price to someone in So Cal I think after that.

                                    I remember he went down south after Denize had him. He was a good boy. Denize did everything on that horse. We did the Turkey Show jumper teams too. Back then we did all on one horse.

                                      La Gringa, I do not know about Perry Grey, (is that the daughter or the mom?) But I do know Mr. Grey (Gary right?) still rides. I see him at quite a few shows here in the north bay. Not sure who he rides with though.

                                        We had a great hunter named Kaiko who eventually went to Pat Warren. Also had Follow Me up and Remember Me.

                                        River Pilot for CeCe Durante was with us for awhile also.

                                          River Pilot was at Sunwood Farm in Beaverton- he showed there and then was sold; Kim Baker rode him and Don Kerron was the trainer. He was raised in Oregon- I shall ask Don where- - I am thinking it was in Ranier- a bit north of Portland. Pat Crowe- Warren had some very nice horses when we showed in Ca- did she own Just a Star? I know she bought The Chatlaine from a woman named Lynn Chaney. Showing at the A to Z show in Arizona was a big deal as was the Forum and The State Fair in Sacramento.
