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!

  • The Ultimate Guide to Hunter Hair for Short Locks: Calling Lord Helpus!

    Okay, here it is! I have actually documented the process by which I tame my short hairs into Hunter Princess hair. Watch and learn:

    The overall guide:

    The tools of the trade

    See, I really do have short hair!

    In the beginning, there was pantyhose...and it was GOOD!

    Boy scout knot-tying class

    Really, I am not an 80's throwback...

    You put the left hairs in, you put the left hairs out...sing along!

    Egads almighty. Who's that girl?

    Ah, the lovely Ruth Buzzy look! How fashionable!

    Really, this isn't macrame

    A little mosquito netting, anyone?

    Look away, Reynard Ridge--the hunt cap is there for demonstration purposes only!

    I'm...too sexy for my hat...

    There she is...Miss Hunter Princess...

    Okay, Pam, is it any clearer now? I'll happily give you private lessons in return for George.
    Life would be infinitely better if pinatas suddenly appeared throughout the day.

        Thank you, thank you (bow). Photog credits go to Horsey Nurse, who had a little, um, difficulty working the camera at first, but proved a quick study.

          Excellent. After several years of not understanding the wrap-the-pantyhose-around-the-head-hairnet-equals-perfect-HP-hair, I finally get it. Thanks. My life will never be the same.

              Well, um, yeah... I will grant you that picture #10 looks good. In a 1" x 1" size. But... BUT... BUT... If one does a one and a half gainer and lands on C6 - 7 (which one has previously broken and has had 2 surgeries to repair), resulting in one's expedited and rather loud trip to the emergency room, one's hat is unceremoniously removed, despite many protests.

              Bottom line is that, instantly, one reverts to looking like Photo #5, and the distance from the emergency room to the psychiatric ward is all too short.

              But I did OK with my hair. Evidence is in Exhibit A, below.

              The only question is: Is it real, or is it Photo Shop? And I ain't telling.

              Now all I have to do is to find out why I have a white triangle on my face in the picture.

                      Okay, girl, let me ask you this: riding in dark clothing and a velvet helmet with a HAIR NET under it in 90 degree weather ISN'T going to send you straight to Bellvue???

                      Secondly, having been a first responder...we've seen it all and we don't care.

                        Okay, so the camera stumped me at first. Who would of thunk that if you handed someone a point and shoot camera that they couldn't just point AND shoot! But the photos turned out and now the truth has been revealed!

                          Wow...I always wondered how people got their hair like that when it was short!

                          Quick question: I event and noticed that people do their hair a bit differently. So, why do hunters cover their ears with the hairnet (and sometimes, hair)? Whenever I put a hairnet on and it covers my ears, it bugs me so I push it up over them...I guess it looks more like I am riding without a hairnet, but my hair is all contained. Is it just a look thing or is there a tradition? Enlighten me, please!

                            I am never cutting my hair! Putting it in a pony tail and flipping it up under my hat is work enough. Cudos to those that do this every time you show! And if your classes are spaced apart, can you fit a ball cap over it?

                                So what do you do if you have shoulder length hair, but it doesn't cover your ears? It is VERY fine to start with and to make matters worse... it is VERY layered!!!

                                      I, for one, was taught NEVER to wear suntan hose, and I am assuming that means on the head as well. I would stick to a very sheer nude perhaps? Any lighter could prove to be scary, but sheer would be key. Also, the lighter colored hairnets help keep it looking lighter.

                                        Yes, I agree about the suntan hose!!
                                        However, we're not talking about with white heels here...

                                        Regardless, if one wants to rob the local 7-11 in between classes, you're all set!!

                                        Kudos to Sing Mia Song for a job well done, and I agree that I will never cut my hair either. Not only does it look time comsuming, but it's got to be pretty darn hot under all that extra nylon!!!
