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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums' policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

    "International Velvet": the sequel

    Okay, it's raining and late and I don't feel like going to bed. And I just watched IV for about the 9000th time. Oh yes, the mistakes and misconceptions get to me a little bit, but still. . .
    Anyway, I want to know what happened AFTER! I mean, Sarah married a guy she met just a few times, and she was only 18 to boot.

    I see Scott and Sarah setting up their own training facility and holding expensive clinics. Then Scott takes on an attractive young working student and Sarah gets everything in the divorce settlement.

    And Captain Johnson beats the everloving poo out of Captain Mark Phillips after one of his star riders is injured on a course Phillips designed. He (Johnson) is suspended. That, combined with his despair over the short format, drives him to drink.

    Anyway, I see Sarah and a rehabbed Johnson ending up together (I always did think Captain J was a better match for her than the pretty boy!)

            Sarah's aunt Velvet's boyfreind was John Seaton. John's pen name for the raunchy books he wrote to finance Sarah's training was Jack Delavie (prounced Delequa).

            I actually have the movie-tie in book - and looked up the spelling!

We all know it might get kinda Peckinpawish since Captain Johnson is also Hannibal Lechter. AT ANY RATE, ANTHONY HOPKINS IS SUPER GORGEOUS IN THAT MOVIE. He looked like Baryshnikov then. FINE

              Oh so true, Hopkins was smokin' hot in that movie. Imagine, a guy who looks and sounds like that, in the horse world, and STRAIGHT!!!!! He'd have to have armed guards with him at all times!

                  I figure that Arizona Pie would be trained as a steeplechaser and run in the Grand National and of course win it. Then he would be put to stud to sire more steeplechasers and/or eventers and/or hunters.

                  Meanwhile Sarah would marry Johnson and they would live happily ever after raising and training Arizona Pie's foals for their own kids and any other kids who wanted to ride in the Grand National, the Gold Cup, Rolex, or the Olympics. And Velvet and Jack would be live-in grandparents and do foal watch.

                    I was hoping they'd find a nice rescue, that they'd rehab and then would go on to beta AZ Pie by a nose....

                      You forgot that Sarah would be pregnant with her first child when she wins the Grand National on Arizona Pie.

                      Also, I think after siring winners of the Grand National, the Epsom Darby, and Olympic Gold medalists in jumping and eventing (not dressage, that wouldn't be realistic), Arizona Pie would then go on to a career as one of the greatest broodmares of all time.

                          Awesome thread!

                          U guys crack me up. Yea - Sarah's and Scott's marriage would have lasted about as long as it takes to wash and dry a winter blanket!

                          Anthony Hopkins totally r0xxx. You can see the dry wit showing through, as a preamble to his greatest role as Dr. Hannibal Lecter.

                          Anyway - just slightly OT ... I see both Mike Plumb and Bruce Davidson mentioned in the end credits. Anyone here sufficiently familiar with them to point out their appearances? Like rider #, or clothes?
                          I'll assume it was during the Ledyard (Kentucky Rolex) segment.

                              I have not seen the film in years but you can recognize Bruce by his colors: Red and marigold bands on his helmet, and probably a red and gold shirt. Mike has a distinctive rounded back when he jumped, and a quite square jawline.
                              What would you try if you knew you would not fail?

                                I still have the Yankee magazine in my scrapbook from when they filmed it at Ledyard. It was an awful soggy mess that year.

                                I loved that movie--I thought she made a great rider, always read she was a very quick study.

                                And yes, you can always tell Mike by his roached back, and bruce by his colors--gosh, he's been wearing those forever., over 30 years that I know.

                                I need to rewatch that I guess....

                                        I think the post said that he IS straight.

                                        Yeah, I guess AP could go on to be a great broodmare, seeing as how his sire went from being a piebald gelding to a chestnut one to a dark bay/brown stallion
